Today, when it became warmer than yesterday, we strolled through the streets of Kyukaruizawa. We enjoyed shopping, spending time in cafes, and spending time with my dog Kurumi. However, there were few people, and the owner of the shoe store complained that there was no choice but to spare.
We were still planning this trip before the Coronavirus outbreak stormed. We are traveling by car, and the inn has been paying close attention to infection, so we decided to go to Karuizawa yesterday. Blessed with good weather, it is a warm day. It is the first time to be this place is the Regina resort where we can stay with dogs. There seem to be two places in Karuizawa, but this time we are using facilities near Mikage Imizu. The whole building is designed to allow us to spend time with pets so that we can have a comfortable time.
This is a product called Clip purchased at a general store that can be used immediately by pulling the cloth with one hand. I immediately tried to use it and tried to peel off the protective paper on the sticker, but it was torn. I do not know if the strength of the adhesive tape is strong or my aging is the cause. Eventually, the seal seemed to come off and gave up. When I notified the manufacturer’s customer support about the situation, they sent me a replacement seal. Thanks. I would like to return the peeled seal to help improve product quality in the future.
The cherry blossoms have begun to bloom, and the flowers in our garden have also bloomed beautifully. Daffodils, Christmas roses and muscari have bulbs planted in the usual places. Wife bought flowers at a nearby horticultural store, and the plants were beautifully planted. The winter, which is warmer than usual, is over and warm days will follow. However, the spread of the new type of pneumonia caused by the coronavirus has not diminished. It has a huge impact on the economy. I hope to return to normal as soon as possible.
Today, Tokyo is the earliest declaration of flowering in record history. In addition, it is the area where the kind of cherry blossom called Somei Yoshino flowered in Japan. However, the rain from the morning turned into a sleet shortly after noon, and the snow in my garden was thin. It was a cold day.
The declaration of the blossoming of Tokyo’s cherry blossoms is about to come out today. The days when the temperature difference is large continue. Today it is close to 20 degrees Celsius, but it is forecast that tomorrow will be cold again. The public is declining to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The number of travelers is drastically reduced, and flights and trains are also reduced. The impact on the economy is significant, and stock prices have plummeted. I pray that there will be no impact on the payment of pensions, but I want to see what happens next. Don’t get infected, keep trying.
The state of the city has changed drastically since the heart coronavirus infection problem occurred. Schools were closed to protect the children by avoiding crowds. Sports are also conducted without audience. I watched TV sumo wrestlers fighting in a quiet place, even the sumo spring tournament that started today. It is said that you will be cheerful if you support us, but it is strange. And there is a mask that cannot be bought. It is said that resale is prohibited, but I was forced to purchase it through the Internet. It is far from normal price. I’m surprised that toilet paper disappears from the sales floor and people take action by rumors.
I often rely on smartphone navigation while driving a car. My car has the navigation, but the map information is outdated. Smartphones can make use of relatively new information. In the near future, there will be cars with such features. Maybe it already exists. I searched for a smartphone holder at an auto supply store, but none of them worked. So I tried to disassemble the type attached to the outlet of the air conditioner. I had to drill holes for M6 screws in the panel, but now I can see the map information comfortably.
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.
