      Caledonia teases me because I do the same thing, and she sits across
      from me and goes..."Yea...blablabla Mr Samurai Guy!!!"

      Well, as you can tell from TLS, Japan has been crawling with Americans
      since Ensign Perry landed in Hakata bay back in the Heian Jidai...

      The shots of the Takeda recreation group, and the Sekigahara support
      footage looks cool...all that smoke and nobori waving! (nobori in a
      cavalry charge? A few look a little helter-skelter...)

      Yea - I cought that one!...

      There was one great looking shot of an archer in armor, kabuto, and
      hoate, standing in Kai, with a proper low cheek draw...sometimes hard
      on sturu, but a great pic!

      Now there is a hell of an idea! We could probably take the same
      footage they used and put together a show that might be better...at,
      oh, half the budget they had...and of course we have to do a Castle
      Site tour...and some shopping...

      I'm in on it if you are...and anyone else on this list!
      Lets write em!
