We did a weeklong WordMaster For Life series on airline travel and time change from May 24-27, 2004. The series was called “Time Travel”. You might want to take a look at it, as we're treating a similar theme in @Work this week. Go to the “WordMaster For Life” top page and use the Search-By-Date (更新日から探す) engine at the bottom!

Today's Lesson

    a: Why can't you call your client at the office? It's almost midnight!
    b: I know, but the time difference between here and New York makes it hard to contact them while I'm at the office.
