      Dear Sakurans,

      As Chabonowaka has been pushing me with a discreet mail about the
      whereabouts of the result, I decided to get it done a bit quicker in my lazy
      mood.

      Well, another exciting day to be sure. One troup of people have been busy
      breaking up the concrete plate that was a parking lot in front of the house
      in order to make the garden a bit more spacious and to restore the balance
      to the WA [harmony] to the front area. The new entrance will much more
      narrow than the old one - I told them to think of a little entrance where
      you step into a garden and leave your burdens outside while being enchanted
      of the garden. It shall be a bit like the feeling when entering the garden
      of a teahouse - the purpose of the path is to prepare the entering person
      for an esthetic sensation... Ok, it's complicated.

      Another troop of people was busy working on the garden in the back - the
      north garden, which is almost finished. Today they just laid out the lawn
      patches... Easy, hm? What I didn't realize was that our gardener [the boss]
      was quite sick... ok, he was having a cold and so on, so I gave some hot
      water and a tissue for inhaling some essential oils. But he also said he
      wants to go to the doc the next day... Well, luckily we can provide that
      service and I got him to see the doc right away and see, almost 40 degrees
      Celcius - and still working hard jobs? That's the japanese sense of
      responsibility. He was hooked up on IV for an hour and came back, still
      continuing... ah, yes, should I maybe say that he's 67 now? Ok, maybe I
      have bored you enough....

      ------

      I was supposed to get the mail out yesterday and others too but my PC
      overheated and crashed. Seemingly I can work it now but need to think about
      what the problem is. Maybe I do a night shift to get the job done. Day 14
      results have been interesting, especially how ppl picked their
      lines............

      ...Well, that was what I wrote a few days, many days ago... Indeed my PC
      crashed and I finally figured out that the fault was with my heatsink/fan
      which I just replaced this morning - ahhh, my PC got so much quieter and
      cooler now SO THAT I am finally able to give you the results you have been -
      OR MAYBE NOT? - waiting for.

      You still like to see some comments despite the basho being long time over?
      Hm, or better not? Hm, maybe nobody is listening to me after all anyway.
      Apparently the Sakuran folks have been pretty quiet these days.

      GG Little Stone: Ouchiyama is falling, but still manages to squeak out a
      narrow win against the droning Sakuran Oyakata. The beloved K-jo seems to
      be perfecting his psychic sumo, having a surprisingly good basho given that
      he is unable to make it to the keyboard at all! I just wish I could pick a
      team like that...
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------

      MM: It took 11 days for our droning oyakata to reach MK - not bad for
      droning straight, yes, little stone?

      this basho just isn't going well for me right now. and
      unfortunately, i don't get to spend much time on my picks
      tonight. tomorrow's the big chili cook off at work, and i've got
      an entry. i'm using buffalo meat and curry flavoring. (the
      japanese bullion cube type curry.) it's ok, i won't win or
      anything, but i like it, and it's definitely different. anyway,
      i hope i have picked well here, GO SAKURA!!!!!

      There were 91 perfect scores today or 54.8% of all bench players got 14pts
      BUT - shall I say as usual - the rate is quite different for Sakura with
      only 27%... Sort of symptomatic for the basho I think

      Nevertheless, our beloved Ozeki ORCHID continues to shine with another
      perfect day decided on the bench for the best Sakuran line of the day - the
      third time this basho.

      And the first Sakuran made it into the land of double digits - a first in
      his illustrous career, LITTLE STONE is now 1-10... [who knows, he might
      wanna show K-jo that he can prevail in his absence?]

      You-know-who is still one win away from her KK --- didn't we see that same
      gaming behavior a while ago? It's certainly a way to keep the expecting
      Sakurans excited.

      The record of the basho: ONLY ONE DRONER today!!!! YES, UNBELIEVABLE!!! What
