Some may remember that my Wife (Etsuko) and Son (Yoji) are still in Japan. Yoji is finishing High School over there before they move here. Our place is just outside of Tokyo and they were shook pretty good but we are far enough inland to avoid the tsunami. It did take me 18 hours to get thru to them, the power and the phones were knocked out, lucky for cell phones, they were limited and I finally got thru. My thoughts and prayers are in high gear for those who were not so fortunate.

Jim - Thanks for the family update - I was watching the news and thought of you and your family - The earthquake was devastating enough - but add the tsunami to that and its really terrible. So many people impacted..very sad.

They got thru the shaking and the water and now the area we live in has detected radiation contamination. We are close to the military bases and they are monitoring the rad count and supposedly there is no danger yet, not very reassuring tho'.

Jim,

I've been following the news and I am very concerned. I just read an aritcle about the 50 workers who are staying at the plant to hold off further radiation. My thoughts are prayers are for safety. Hang in there Jim. Keep the faith.
