21:14 Well, well, I guess throwing that little cyber-tantrum yesterday had somewhat of an impact, because today the three first “real” messages were posted on the BBS. Two of them were from my brother-in-law, mind you, but hey, it counts, ok! IT COUNTS! Come on people, don’t be shy!

 

In other news, I am very happy to announce that cherry blossoms started to bloom in ONE park in Miyagi.

That is great news! According to the Cherry Blossom Front forecast, cherry trees should be 70% bloomed around the 20th. With luck, the trees will be in full bloom around the end of the month. i.e. just in time for Golden Week! Y(^-^)Y
