I thought the cherry blossom trees on Washington were originally a gift from Japan...but I could be way wrong.

You're right; I just checked Wikipedia:

Japan gave 3,000 sakura trees as a gift to the United States in 1912 to celebrate the nations' then-growing friendship. These trees have since lined the shore of the Tidal Basin in Washington, D.C. (see West Potomac Park), and the gift was renewed with another 3,800 trees in 1965. The sakura trees continue to be a popular tourist attraction (and the subject of the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival) when they reach full bloom in early spring.

Even 'Secret Window'? Ooh, look out every one, a writer is on the loose!

Well, he's been in a lot of lousy movies, but I still always enjoy watching him. I think he's a very talented actor and is clearly not afraid of taking risks. And AWFULLY CUTE to boot.
