Baby's Head Wetting Session


I just signed up a Vodafone mobile a week ago, the moment I received the phone, there was a missed call from a certain financial institute, the caller left a voice message to someone and asked him to call back, since I have deleted the voice message, I can't remember the name.

Two days later, I received a message, inviting "ME" to a Baby's Head Wetting Sesh, like this:
On Sat 27th, babys head wetting sesh for myself and Mr Clifton round and about town. Starting early doors, if your coming let me know, if you're not let me know, if you're not sure make your mind up and let me know. 
Since I didn't know what ""Baby's head wetting session" means, so I replied the message, asked if the sender knew who I was, the sender said, "Yes, you're an Old Bald man in Melton Mowbray."

I may be old, but I am definitely not bald. After doing a little bit of search, I found out that "Baby's head wetting" actually means drinking in a pub to celebrate newborn baby.

Congratulation whoever they are, anyway.

I felt sorry for that "Old Bald man", he might have been in financial difficulty, and lost his mobile phone, and also lost contact with his relative and friends too.

A year ago, I used land-line phone service provided by Virgin Media, and I always received a phone call to Mrs. Hampton. Now I moved to another place, and disconnected the phone, someone may take my number, and receive phone calls to Mr. Sheng.

This kind of wrong number calls and texts cost a lot of money, has anybody raised this kind of issues, and provides a way to stop wasting money?

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…

Is Aladdin a Chinese?

Aladdin is an Arabic name, but he lived in China.  Is he a Chinese?
Aladdin's wonderful Lamp was included in the first European version of the Book of the Thousand and One Nights (1704-1717), but not in the original Arabic manuscript.
So it's a problem who originally invented the story,  Arabic or European? In a 19th Century Pantomime, Aladdin's hometown is Beijing or Peking, spelled "Pekin" in the report,  now capital city of China.
 Derby local newspaper Mercury reported the pantomime in December, 1878. The reporter said "the representation of the city of Pekin, illuminated for a fete, is really very good indeed".  Above all, Pekin, Beijing or no, it would be found to be delightfully local in parts, with the opportunity never missed of getting  at the Derby City Council, as in on Scene:
BADROULBADOUR - And you will live here, dear Aladdin? ALADDIN -  Yes, And livery servants in most gorgeous dresses shall wait upon you - you shall hear the lark Sing from you…

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…
