    Would you guys quit socializing and start reporting ? How do the farms look ? Are the breaderts rebuilding ? How do the fish look ? Damn some of us will never get to go to Japan so we're relying on you all ( Texas , sorry ) for information.

    Right now we're play hit and miss with a lot of the breeders. One thing is for certain, and that Shinoda is very much in business. The road that leads right up to his place is under construction. Jirosuke is up and running, Torazo is up and running, Maruyo is up and running, Isa Hajime is up and running, Suda is up and running. Izumiyas place is in shambles, Dainichis place looks like a wreck but I believe that they are still in business. Lots of the breeders are still harvesting so it's hard to tell who's in business unless you go down and see if the place is open. Hirasawa is open for business, but I think he was harvesting when we went to his place.
    It's hard for me to tell, it's my first time so no reference points, but

    Still haven't seen Jeff, but did have breakfast with Nancy (with no laptop) and Frank with Ken Tran. Then we saw them with Tom Lai and Brian Nguyen.

    You mentioned Shinoda being in business. Have you been there, and did you take pictures? I can't wait to own another Shinoda Hi Utsuri. Do you have any pictures of Shinoda Hi Utsuri? You can send them to me and I'll post them. If you are going back there, could you please please take some pictures of Hi Utsuri?

    Thanks in advance,

    Regenmeneer
