    really then. I was pretty sure it was Fremont, or at least thought it was when I went there. Our tuor guide must have gotten it wrong.

    Well then, it looks like Israelitte gets it. Your Turn...

    Sorry gentlemen, I'm battling the flu and haven't been at the computer for some time. :sad:

    Here's a new question:

    Who is the former provincial samurai considered to be the father of the Imperial Japanese Army?
