Well everyone. It's something I swore I'd never get around to, but here goes...
To start I might just give everyone a quick update on what's been going on since the new year kicked off. It's been a relatively action packed start to the year.
New Year was celebrated in a somewhat sedate and mature fashion with some bubbly with friends and an early rise to see the sunrise in Kamogawa on a magnificent day with blue skies and only a slight chill in the air.
This was followed by the seeing off of Kanpei-san, a well known Tv celeb from Osaka who had recently embarked on an earth marathon, running from Osaka to Kamogawa where he set sail for LA.
