Expressions and Proverbs by Doug. (ダグさんによる言い回しとことわざ)

Do You Know About Easter? (イースターについて知っていますか。) 

It's the first Sunday after the first full moon after the vernal equinox.

(春分の後の最初の満月の後の第1日曜日)     Vernal Equinox  (春分)

Loneliness vs Solitude.   

Language... has created the word 'loneliness' to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word 'solitude' to express the glory of being alone.

Yes, English can be weird. It can be understood through tough thorough thought, though.
(そう、英語はときにおかしな文になる。 しかし、しっかり、考え抜けば理解できる。)

We listened to "Diamonds & Rust", sung by Joan Baez. 

Joan Baez was popular in Japan. (ジョーンバエズは日本で人気だった。)

Because the lie of everybody was easy, we were able to find it out.
