Happy “Aloha Monday” to you all!  I’m starting to prepare for ManoaDNA’s upcoming trip to Japan, and the excitement is starting to build.  Since Nick and I will be arriving a couple of days earlier, we’ll be assisting HTJ to help bring supplies up to the people in the hard-hit Sendai and Miyagi regions.  I’m really looking forward to this and hope our aloha spirit will help make them smile …

I also want to bid a fond farewell to our very good friend, Yutaka Kakuda, who just returned to his home in Kanazawa, Japan.  He’s such a great person and we will all miss him very much.  Aloha, my friend, take care and I hope to see you again very soon!

Hmmm … not much else to tell you guys today … another quiet Monday.

Aloha, “D”
