Allow me to introduce myself and my family. I was born in the United States of America, in Michigan. My father later became a biker and my mother a Hippie. (More on that later.) I have an older brother, and an older sister, both of whom I respect greatly. My father had 2 daughters much later (when I was 30 or so), by his second wife, but I know little about them as I don’t keep in touch with him. I am married to a wonderful Japanese woman and live in Nagasaki prefecture, Japan. We have two great, rambunctious boys that do their best to drive my wife insane by mimicking all my best points. Hopefully, we’ll be able to share our experiences in individual blogs here, on this site.
