Longevity in Ogimi

Ogimi is known for its elderly citizens. Okinawa in general prides its longevity rates, and Ogimi has the highest percentage of men and women over 100 for its small population (3,500).

Here are a couple of links i found about their "secrets" to long life.

Grading mediocre exams is really the worst possible job in the world. Well, perhaps i'm exagerating, but what if i tell you that the average temperature in the building classrooms is 80 degrees? It's painful, is what it is.

Anyways, on to JET news. Was contacted by a Prefectural Advisor today through e-mail. So more resources for me on Okinawa. He pointed me to a handy dandy website designed specifically for and by the Okinawa JETs. So check it out, and feel jelous at how gorgeous my new home will be. *evil grin*
