      Greetings:

      Thank you for your comment on twitter but at the moment I am in the Smokey’s of eastern Tennessee writing a book on the women and children in the jails and prison of the US. Internet is through my cell phone and I only have one bar where I am located and so feeding my blog has been slow. I come out of what I should call relative seclusion on the 31st of March and the blog should pick up.
      There is another reality in my life and that is I don’t know how to use Twitter and other than a name and a phenomenal opening on the stock market for some 4 billion or maybe 40 billion I know nothing about it.
      Is the script on your webb site Kangi. I was stationed in Japan from 62 to 64 as a young marine and tried to learn it and where as I can not remember any of it, the flow of the letters remind me of Japanese for which I have many fond memories. Know I wish you well and sorry I could not help. Do good and take care.
