fantastic effort. well done to all involved and good also to emphatically dismiss the idea that all foreigners left japan post quake/tsunami

Is that you and my mate Stephen Lacey, Brett?

Well done!

Yesterday too a few of the locals here held a little charity run down in the southern suburbs of Osaka, around Sayama pond.

Not near as much money collected but every little bit help as we all know.

Thank you. Yes, that is Stephen and I. A good way to spend a beautiful afternoon, and more raised than expected. And agreed, Marty. Many of us consider this our home and have not abandoned it.
