thanks for responding (what has happened to Aikiweb since I've been away? over 400 views of my post and only 1 reply?),
didn't want to post because still not happy about you spent all your time out west coast, picked up strange habits from west coasters, which we would have to beat it out of you if you ever set foot out here in the East. everyone knows East Coast is where you would find aiki, at the very least, good foods.
