Susumu's in this? I had no idea ... a good sign, that, as he tends to elevate those around him.

If you have trouble with that trailer - Firefox didn't know what to do with it - try pasting this directly into Real Player:

yah, came across the non-subtitled disc at my local Japanese video store. Do you know if there are any discs with subs out there now?

Hi Ai Maeda, I thought I would google you to see if I could see a picture of you. You must be very busy. Congratulations! Dianne and the family and I miss you and think of you often.

Love Margie Langille. Canada
