Fengshui of our house

Fengshui literally means 'wind and water', which are two most important elements of a place.

When buying a property, location is the most important fact which affects the price.

Ten houses on this crescent, which was a patch of woodland. The house which we now live is on the worst spot. It has lest sunshine, noisiest, and facing to road.

Lack of sunshine causes our burglar alarm to fail, and might attribute to my stiff knees. East was tall building, which was a police station. This tall building block the morning sunshine. In the front of our house, another tall complex to block our view. Sometimes their glass windows reflect sunshine direct into our living room.

There is a burglar alarm on the front wall of each house. Ours failed last winter, and I noticed this didn't happen to our neighbours'. I called the security company to fix it. The guy told me that the battery was drained because of lack of sunshine. 'Well,' he said, 'you don't really need the direct sunshine to recharge it. But in this country, the day is very short in winter, more cloudy days than bright one.' He changed the battery, and it works again. One year after, I noticed the alarm failed again.

Our house is also the noisiest. Behind our house is a underground train parking center, which was an abandoned prison, local people told me that a high official of Hitler was jailed here during the WII. We can hear the loud noise even when our windows are closed, and feel the tremor of the ground when a train leaves the parking lot and moves to underground, our house shakes as if by a minor earthquake.

This is the most convenient spot for aimless burglars, when then saunters in to this road, just need to take few steps to turn our door knob to check is it is locked. Then quickly move away without being noticed by the neighbors.

Couple of month ago, a hoodie just opened our door and walk inside. When he saw us in the kitchen, he walked away. Half an hour later, we heard the clicking of the door knob again, I run to see out of the window, the same hoodie came back and passed our house for a quick check.


Yin represents dark, cold, wet, windy, noisy, etc. These are negative elements and  destructive force to human being. Several day ago, when I open the back door, two foxes lying in our garden. Fox is believed to have the most yin element among animals, they choose our garden as a hiding place, that means the garden have the most yin elements, which are agreeable to them, but not good for us humans.

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…
