Happy New Year!


We celebrated another New Years Day at mom and pop’s place, with all of the delicious food mom prepared (plus an assist from Carol and Sue). We are truly lucky that we can “come home” and enjoy such a wonderful gochisou.

This year the kuromame (black beans) were especially good, and huge — uncle bought them during his Japan trip, and I think he said they were from Hyogo prefecture.


It was great spending time with everyone. I think 18-month old Nicole stole the show in her USC outfit (by the way, USC beat Illinois in the Rose Bowl 49 – 17). And we enjoyed hearing Moots share his Las Vegas “win at Mint” stories.

Wishing the New Year brings everyone much health, happiness and prosperity!
