    I lived in Misawa way up North from 1984-1986. One of the best places I've lived!

    Well after 20 years....you must like it. Good for you! It's hard to find a place you are comfortable with for almost 20 years

    You too? All day long I've been hearing ...Sargent Pepper taught the band to play in my head every time I read this subject line.

    Congrats, Stu. I think you've done well for yourself in those 20 years. Time sure flies, huh?

    Congrats on the milestone. Something nice must be keeping you there.
