It's a Level 30 bear!

I usually tell Brenda a bed time story when we are in bed and just before falling sleep. I was tired the other day. When Brenda asked for a story, I said 'I've told so many stories to you, now it's your turn. Tell me something.'


'Okay, then', she thought for a while and told me a bear hunt story.


It originated from the nursery rhyme:


Going on a bear hunt.

Going to catch a big one.

I'm not afraid.

Look, what's up ahead?

Mud!

Can't go over it.

Can't go under it.

Can't go around it.

Gotta go through it.

...
Going on a Bear Hunt

Going to catch a big one.

I'm not afraid

Look, what's up ahead?

Ohh it's a dark cave

I can't see anything

I can feel something

I can hear something


Oh it's a bear

RUN!(Reverse all motions quickly to get home.)


She made some interesting changes to the story. She was hunting bears with all her friends at the nursery. She finger-counted her bear hunt team: Alisa, Mason, Tori Lee, Abi, Miya ... and when she saw the bear, she exclaimed

'Oh, it's a bear. It's Level 30! RUN!'


This is clearly from the World of Warcraft game. She likes to watch me play the game and is always trying to help. Playing as a Tauren hunter, I tamed a tiger as my pet. Sometimes Brenda reminds me

'Mummy, you need feed your cat. She's not happy!'

'Mummy, don't sell all the meat. Save some for your pet!'

and she watches all beasts I encountered, compares their level with mine, and decides whether I shall attack or run away.

Occasionally, she gets nervous and asks me to 'go back to the road' or 'go to the save place'. She cheers when my Tauren hunter levelled up or killed a difficult enemy; she cries when he died and became ghost.


After she ran quickly to get home from her bear hunting adventure, I asked her 'What's your level then?'

'I'm Level 4. When I grow up, I will be Level 30 too!'

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.

coat-of-arms

Heraldry probably began with the knights in armour. When wearing a helmet in battle or in tournaments a knight could not be recognised; so he used symbols to decorate his shield and surcoat. The surcoat was the loose garment worn over the armour to protect it from rain or hot sun and actually was the "coat-of-arms"; it was decorated on the front and back with the same device as on the shield.
The correct expression for entire design is an achievement. An achievement consists of the shield, helmet, rest, wreath, mantling and motto. These are the main parts. To them can be added supporters and a compartment.

In the centre is the most important part, the shield. The surface of the shield is called the field and on it the colourful charges are placed. The shield is called the arms or coat-of-arms and can be drawn in any shape - in an upright position or slanting, which is the position it would fall into if hung on a peg. In Heraldry it slants to dexter.


The helmet denotes the ran…
