Hitting close to home (run)

Being a baseball player & fan I couldn’t be any more excited for the little league world series. I’ve been pulling for both teams- my home town of Huntington Beach & the Japanese little league team!

The faint memories of the woman’s world cup still linger in my head and to me this is a similar situation. My hat tips to both teams for making it this far. Play ball!

Ocean family helping each other.

I was wondering around at the US Open in my town of Huntington Beach last week and came upon a tent with a large Japanese flag hanging off it, so naturally it attracted my attention. As I approached I was greeted by a tall, thin Japanese man offering me an inviting smile. He introduced himself as Mituteru, and he is a Japanese citizen and avid surfer, being a surfer myself we share an unspoken bond of the ocean, and in this bond we know how vulnerable we are to the magnitude of the ocean.  He explained his foundation and I did with Cali Cares, when he bowed saying thank you I was immediately convinced of his genuine gratitude and appreciation.  I donated a humble amount, hugged him and  I told him I would spread the word of his campaign. So for all my surfer friends out there who see this and feel the tides of giving please contact MitsuteruKamio@wavehunt21@aol.com

Wheres the beef?

I came across this article and tried to figure out a solution if I was the authority figure in charge of this dilemma but it seems there is no easy way around compensating for the brutal effects of mother nature.

My heart goes out to those farmers who are taking a devestating blow to their buisiness and their productive source of income.

Sharing a blog

Hello,  I hope everyone is doing well.  Take a look at this blog, written by a Belgian couple living in Japan for a year.  Just days ago, on July 31st, they experienced what it is like to feel an earthquake for the firs time.
