Sorry for the absence of blogs lately. I just got back from a much needed vacation in the states. I had a really good time in visiting with friends and family. I also got the chance to do some work on our up and coming farm. I got the honor of meeting our first calf! It was a very cool experience. Didn't want to come home to the earthquake/nuclear problems here in Japan. Fingers crossed that nothing else gets worst and we don't have to evacuate. :( I feel so bad for the families out there that have lost a loved one or is now without food and the everday necessaties that we take for advantage (such as gas). My thoughts are with you.
