One of the first things I bought when I came to Okinawa, getting on for 9 years ago, was a rice cooker. https://thequietripple.com/2011/02/19/in-which-he-buys-a-rice-cooker/ She has served me very well but has become very shabby. The top has rusted badly and she is generally grimy despite my best efforts to clean her up.
I go to Amazon, I buy a new one, which is delivered at 10:00 am on Sunday morning. I love Amazon.
The real problem is learning how to use the new one. The manual explains everything but is in a language I cannot read. Too many options.
It has of course been pouring with rain ever since I got back from Europe. Small Typhoons.
My home-made cockpit cover blew off again. I have been trying very hard to buy a proper cover but cover makers in England seem to be determined not to sell me one or send me dimensions so I can get one made over here. Brexit despair probably.
