Ms. James is best known for her role on the popular television show , The Becker Family and for her role in the film Lighthouse fo which she received the Winston Actors Award last year for Best Leading Actress

In a recent interviwe with a reporter form Carter City Magazine, ms. james spoke in detail about her adjustment to the theater world, so far this has been a great learning experience for me.said Ms. James . It's certailnly very different from what I'm used to ,and it took some time to get adjusted to performing in front of a live audience instead of a camera, it's something I would certainly like to pursue further
Last night, the Flying High audience was packe with a crowd of celebrities including many of Ms. James television and film costers 共演者


There was a national certified tour guide test on the last Sunday.

In Japan, getting paid by guiding foreign tourists requires this license.

I won't get a job of guiding,but this test is the only national test of English,so as a professional of passing Japanese culture to foreign tourists ,I've been wanting to pass the exam.

When I looked at the diary 10 years ago,

It says,
Passing the tour guide test
Play moder songs of Koto, Yumenowa and Arcadia
Getting Master Grade lisence of Tsugaru Shamisen Oyama style.

The last two already came true.

For skipping English test for tour guide test,
you have to get the TOEIC score of 840.
I took 835.

I'll do my best that this dream will come true after 10 years!

Rice Crop Expected to Reach Near-Record Levels
The National Department of Agriculture has reported that the nation's farms are on pace このままで行くと to produce their second-largest annual rice crop and fourth-largest annual soybean crop ever. As a result, grain prices are ecpected to drop across the nation over the next several months.accordingg to the government's economici advisory office.

The forecast is base on acutual field visits and farmer surveys conducted by the department.Because of he higher-than-average rainfall during the early summer planting season, previous estimates had been mauch lower than normal.But cooler, ideal weather since then has helped many of the nation's farmers recover form June's heavy rains.The department forecasts that farmers will harvest 4.3 billion bushels ofrice, up more than 670 million bushels from the last month's estimate of 3.6 billlion.The new estimate is only 3 percent lower than last year's rcord crop of 4.5 billion bushels35リットル
The recovery is expected to lead to lower prices for rice and soybeans, two of the nation's most important agricultural exports.

The new estimate is welcome news for many other businesses as well.High rice prices had cut deeply into profits for restaurants chains , for instance, since they spend a significant portion割合 of their bugest on rice and rice products.

Participants in the first group were given a sample of each flavor and asked to rate each sample on a scla of 1 to 10m with 1 siginifying that the drink was highly enjoyable .

but the samples were labled by name. They were then asked to rate the samples on two scales from 1- to 10
how much they enjoyed the drink and how well it satisfied the expectation created by its name.Te purpose of this test was to determine if the flavors of the drinks actually match the expectation created by the name of the product.

Results of the group taste test are being processed and analyzed and will be availale next week.As always,the results are confidential , so my assistant will hand deliver 手渡しする  a paper copy of the report directly to you offices rather than sending it as an e-mail attachment.
