The Gingerbread Man

Once upon a time… there was a old man and old lady, they made a gingerbread man and they mixed.  They mixed and they mixed. It was done, and they pressed the cutter on the dough. They made raisins for eyes… and cherry for nose. Orange skin for his mouth and three raisins for his buttons. They put it on the oven and they were watching TV. and the oven called ding ding! So they opened the oven and the gingerbread man quickly ran out the door and said "run run run! As fast as you can! you can't catch me! i'm the gingerbread man!" The old lady and old man said "stop stop!" We love gingerbread men! They ran and they met a little boy and little girl and the boy was pushing the girl on the swings. The girl said "stop stop! We love gingerbread men!" and they chased him and they met a cat and a mouse. The cat was chasing the mouse and they looked, and said "stop stop we love gingerbread men!" So they ran trying to catch little gingerbread man. He ran up a hill, ran up a mountain, rand through a forest, and… they got closer to a river and then a fox came pounding and stopped. Staring at the gingerbread man, drooling. The fox was planning to trick the gingerbread man. So the fox said "I will help you across the river!" "thank you!!" said gingerbread man. So the fox swam over the the gingerbread mans side and bent down for him to sit on the foxes back. The fox swam halfway and the fox flipped the gingerbread man said "help! help! Im being eaten! Im too young to die!" The gingerbread man went down into the foxes throat with a big gulp and the others watched as the gingerbread man disappeared for a while….

The Gingerbread Man After Story

They made a gingerbread girl and the old man and woman said aw! She must be lonely so the boy gingerbread man, not dead escaped from the foxes stomach and the gingerbread man ran to the old woman's house and he knocked on the door and they opened and they said "we won't eat you look! He saw the ginger bread girl and came in and he took her hands and the gingerbread man ran with the gingerbread girl. The old woman caught them and ate them. They went through her mouth, got chewed up, went through her intestines and made it into her stomach… After they made a gingerbread house and they made two more ginger bread people and they lived happily in the old woman's house. The old woman made a granny and grandpa! and then it was dark and the middle of  the night they just made one whole family of gingerbread men and they lived happy in the gingerbread house. Until it was nearly morning 12 o clock they made the bed and sleep they turned the lights off. "night night!" said gingerbread baby "night night!" said gingerbread girl. So it was morning already! the alarm goes mew mew mew mew mew mew mew mew and they checked the gingerbread house and they were still there and they said "mama papa," and they all laughed. They all ran and said "run run run as fast as you can you can't catch me we're the gingerbread men!" everyone joined and laughed as they said "run run as fast as you can you cant catch me we're the ginger bread men!" They laughed for an hour!

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 denot

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

Derby City 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 (arm
