Author's note: March 13th

Due to our country in a state of emergency from the earthquake, the Tsunami, and fear from nuclear meltdown,

I'll be taking a month or maybe longer off to to deal with all that is happening in our country.

I'd like to thank all the people worldwide for the prayers and support you're all giving us.

I live in Tokyo so the damage was nothing compared to what is happening in the northern parts of Japan but

aftershocks are still continuing and strong, there is power outage, limited transportation, limited phone service,

and food and water is starting to lack but as a nation we will stay strong and live through this crisis

and rebuild our country again.

Thank you.
