Hello, Mizunaka. Today I am perusing your collection while listening to music.
Are you Japanese (all eight of my great-grandparents were Bohemian myself)? One of the songs I sometimes hear while doing that is Sukiyaki by Kyo Sakamoto. Shame how he died.

People, I am not sure why the forum is messing up my posts...it does not post what I see in the message body while typing it. Is this some translation "feature"?
