Papers accepted, submitted, and chili con carne

One of the most important  jobs in universities is writing papers. Even if you perform an excellent experiment, it will not be accepted as a scientific fact without a publication. Today, I received an e-mail notice saying the paper I had revised was accepted for publication in a scientific journal.  It is good.  I have been sitting on a chair for days in front of a computer.  My back and shoulders are stiff.  My effort is rewarded.

I was preparing another paper, and it is done. I submitted it online this evening.  I hope it will be accepted, soon.

On Fridays, Katya sometimes works late.  Today, I perpared chili con carne while she was out. I consider myself a spice master, and I usually make good chili with 20 spices.  Boy, I did not use enough tomatos today, and the chili was not as good as I expected.  Katya told me it is good, but I felt a bit pity not to be able to finish a good day with a good chili.

    Congratulations… nice to have rewards for hard work.

    Thank you, Ben.
    I saw your guide on guide books. No wonder your blog is practical, too. We are planning to go to Kyoto at the end of November. Hope the leaves still survive.

    I think you will be in luck… however, given that it has been cold in Sapporo this year already… I wonder if it’s going to be a cold winter in Japan. How is it in Kofu now?

    Fall in Japan, including Kofu, is a bit cooler this year. We are planning to visit Kyoto at the end of November. Therefore, we are a bit worried. Wish us luck.
