I'v purchased some old radios which date back to 70s in the last several months. In those days, some radio manufacturing companies produced a series of radios for shortwave listening. Sony, Panasonic Toshiba are among them. Most of them were Japan's companies because young Japanese generation of those years were keen to listen to radios as a hobby.
Panasonic made a couple series of portable radios such as Cougar and Proceed. I got one of them. It's DR29. This model is similar to RF-2800 for Japanese market but slightly different in some features. DR29 was produced for Europe and equipped with some functions which were omitted in the Japanese model.

It's been a while since I last posted a note on this blog. During the winter time, I prefer to relax rather watching TV or listening to the radio than concentrating on something enthusiastically. In the last month, the Olimpic Games were held in Canada and I spent some time for watching them day and night.

I had been used a Seiko Type2, which was produced more than 30 years ago, in my school days. It's a old-fashioned quartz watch featuring a simple face and colors. I kept it in my desk for a long time without exchanging batteries. A couple of months ago, I encountered a watch shop which provides maintenance services of old watches. I sent my watch last week and received it today.
It's a real surprise to see my cleanly repaired watch indicating the correct time. I asked the shop to attach a new stainless belt to it and I found that the belt fits perfectly to the appearance of the watch.

It's been raining all the day today. I dared to go out to enjoy my day off. As usual, I dropped by at the Indian curry shop and had a special menu which offers a special taste with a variety kind of spices.
I often go to these kind of curry shops run by Indian people in the area of my home town. There a dozen of shops and I've visited most of them. The tastes are a bit different each other but overall I like them.
