Seven years have passed since our wood stove has been active. Vermont’s encore model. The operating temperature is around 250 ° C, but if I am not careful, it may exceed 300 ° C. This model has a secondary combustion device, which can burn firewood slowly. It is very good to be able to see the burning flame swaying. The secondary combustion unit has a filter using a catalyst, and requires regular maintenance. This time, I took out the ash to remove it. I am also replacing gaskets. The effect of the catalyst is weakening, so let’s change the filter next time.
I received very sad news. A colleague who had been together at the development field for many years died of a disease coming from cancer. We had a close relationship with each other through product development. I did not have the opportunity to meet each other after leaving the company, but we exchanged New Year’s cards. I was looking forward to the New Year’s card with his family’s smile every year, but this was the last year. I pray for the underworld.
Happy new year in 2020! To celebrating this new year and our success in 2020 I made the chopsticks having the mark on it both team names.
The shape of this chopsticks is pentagon. Pentagon is “Gokaku” in Japanese and “Gokaku” is similar to pronounce “Goukaku” means pass the things. So this pentagon shape usually use to pray passing the examination and making the success.
In 2020, both of us will be challenging a few important events. I really confidence we can achieve to “Goukaku” for all of those challenges. Let’s be as One Team like this pair of chopsticks.
The water lily has been growing for 5 years, but the number of plants has increased and it has become narrower in conventional pots. This time I worked as a direct replacement in a water lily pot. First evacuate the goldfish and remove all the solidified soil from the water lilies. I split the bulbs carefully. Cut out the old roots. I throw away the small plants and plant 5 bulbs. The soil is Akadama, and wait a few days for the water to settle. Then let the goldfish enter there.
It was a windy weekend, but I feel somehow spring. And this is the pollen season again. Pollen seems to scatter a lot at dawn, and if I take a walk at that time, it will sneeze and will not stop. The plum is at its best. A red post has been opened in the nearby park. E-mail usage is increasing, but I am happy to have a post nearby.
I moved the ISP from Biglobe to Softbank. The reason is that I thought of discounts at the same company as mobile phones (smartphones). The connection of ipv6 can be moved on the same day, and the communication speed is the same. However, SoftBank is renting a router with a built-in wireless function, and I connected it. The connection from the outside to the house could not be made well because the router function was a little inferior. The problem was solved by contacting SoftBank and using a conventional router. I will return the sent rental router next month.
Cleaning is required the next morning after the wood stove is used. Clear the ash and clean the soggy cloudy glass. Last night, there was a child on fire until morning because a little bigger wood was inserted. Finding a fire buried in the ash can be a little fun. Now for the glass, I polish with this ash on a rag. Once I know how to do this, I don’t need a polishing agent. It’s warm during the day, but I can still be wrapped in the warmth of a wood stove tonight.
The other day, while driving on the highway, I felt noise and shock. I might have stepped on something that was on the road. Fortunately there were no visible scratches around the vehicle. The bottom of the body, which I can’t see by myself, was shown in the garage today. I checked with the mechanic, but there was nothing. At first it is safe. BMW was also found to be designed to keep the bottom of the car body flat.
I have high cholesterol and uric acid levels. This is not something that has recently begun, and it has probably been like this for a long time since adulthood. I have tried to restrict my diet and drink more water, but have not been able to get good results. After two months of medication for cholesterol, it returned to normal and decided to start medication for uric acid. This morning, I consulted with my doctor, KH, female doctor. I was told that it is important to reduce the risk of myocardial infarction and so on, considering 10 years from now. Now, the daily life of taking medicine starts. Actually, it should be cured by diet and lifestyle, but I will rely on medicine. I hope there are some good medicines now and I hope there are few side effects.
