Bowel Cancer Screening Letter Sent to Wrong Address

An invitation letter for Mr D Miller to take part in Cancer Screening, from the leaflet, I know that GP provides these contact details, this Mr Miller's name still in GP's registration.

I received many letters for Mrs Thompson, one day the postman noticed the ridiculousness of delivering these letter to me, then I receive these letters for Thompson any more.

Dear Mr Miller

This is an invitation to take part in the NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme. This opportunity is available every 2 years to all men and women aged 60-69 who are registered with a GP in England. If you have received this invitation and are aged 70 or over, this is because the screening age range is being extended to 60-74 in your area. If you have taken part in the programme before, it is now two years since your last test. Your GP knows that the NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme is being offered in his or her area. The aim of the screening programme is to detect bowel cancers at an early stage, when there are better chances of successful treatment and cure.

You will automatically be sent a test kit, including full instructions, in about a week's time. The kit is simple to use in the privacy of your own home. If you wish to take advantage of the screening programme, all you have to do is complete the kit and return it to us in the Freepost envelope that will be provided. You will receive a result letter within two weeks. We do not have knowledge of your medical history, and screening may not be appropriate for everybody. For example if you:

- have had a colonoscopy or a barium enema plus a sigmoidoscopy within the last 2 years;
- are on a bowel polyp surveillance programme;
- are currently being treated for bowel cancer;
- have had your large bowel removed;
- are currently being treated for ulcerative colitis or Crohn's Disease;
- are currently awaiting bowel investigations arranged by your GP.

If you fall into any of the above categories, or you do not wish to participate in the screening programme, please contact us to let us know. The Freephone number is at the top of this letter. If you need help from family or a carer to use the kit, please call (or ask them to call) the Freephone number for further important information. Please take the time to read the enclosed leaflet 'Bowel Cancer Screening - The Facts', which may help to answer any questions you have. You can also call the Freephone number if you have any queries about whether to take part.

Yours sincerely

Fw: Story -- A Lazy Fat King

The Fat King

Once upon a time there was a kingdom with... a fat king! He was very fat and lazy, he had 10 servants to help him to eat, and helped him to go to bed, and lots of other things. His first servant served the food on the table, the second servant put food on the spoon, the third servant opened his mouth, the fourth servant put the food in his mouth, the fifth servant had to help him chew! The sixth one fed him soup, the seventh one blew the soup if it was too hot, the eighth one wiped his mouth with a wet towel, the ninth one fed him desserts, and the tenth one put drinks in his mouth. The king was ''so'' lazy that he didn't even walk! He was carried around by some servants.

One day the chairs for the king were braking so the servants had to make special beds, then the…

You can find your Wireless Network Key on Virgin Media Wireless Router

We have a new netbook computer, and don't know where to find network key, which is needed to setup wireless connection.

A network key may also be called WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) key or WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) key.

A wireless network key is a security feature that prevents unauthorized users from accessing a wireless network. An unprotected network is an unlocked virtual door, anybody within range can piggyback on the network undetected.

I use Virgin media broadband with a Virgin media wireless router, this router has a WPA key taped on the router, that WPA key is an English word consisting of 10 letters.

To tape network key on the router is a good idea, because we may never lose or forget a wireless network key as long as we possess the router.

The Meaning of Derby City Council Logo

The logo of Derby City Council looks quite abstract and modern. I wonder what's the meaning of it? The lower-left part of the logo looks like a snail (or the initial letter D in Derby?), the upper-right part seems a river, (Derwent river?) these two parts are connected by a straight line at the bottom.

I did some searches on the web trying to find out the true meaning of Derby City Council logo, but without success. So, I wrote to tourist information, and got the answer from Michael:
The Logo is a representation of two of Derby's oldest emblems, one being a ram the other a buck (deer). Obviously the logo is a modern interpretation of these two figures so it is not obvious unless you know what to look for. Most people do seem to agree with you that it looks like a snail however.
Ram! the curly horn of ram looks like a snail indeed. The ram and the deer are from coat of arms of City of Derby,
In this coats of arms, we can see the deers both in shield (arms) and supporter, but the…
