Good writing, but not a very interesting story.

TIGER's Revival
TIGER was in heaven, with god, watching LION angrily. God realized TIGER wasn't bad so he gave TIGER another chance to live. TIGER was revived as a female baby tiger named PANTHERA. Meanwhile, LION had a baby boy, with his wife, named LEO. LION was in a fight and LION was older now and weaker so he couldn't beat the opponent. So LION died, leaving LEO with his mother. LEO was out playing one day when he saw a young tiger just about his age, a girl. LEO wanted to make friends, so did PANTHERA so they asked what their names were and started talking and playing together. Before long they became best friends and started hanging out with each other now and then. As they grew older they became so close you could barely see them apart, PANTHERA had decided she wanted to be part of the lion's pride so she asked LEO if she could join. LEO accepted and asked the head lion if PANTHERA could join. The head lion couldn't refuse since LEO's father was a legend to all the lions. Everyone knew about PANTHERA's past life and about the chicken rap battle, but they never told LEO. The lions didn't want their LEO to be taken by PANTHERA but they accepted anyway. But as a result, PANTHERA got treated very badly by the lions. Being bullied about being different... and getting the smallest share of prey. It was a hard life for PANTHERA. Even though LEO's father was LION, LEO couldn't do anything to help his friend. The following night, LEO overheard the head lion's conversation about LION and TIGER. LEO was so surprised, and told PANTHERA about it. PANTHERA was forced to leave the pride once he knew about it, because they couldn't keep an enemy. After that PANTHERA was very lonely and sad, she became a loner. Her survival was vital and she became very slim since she didn't hunt often.
LEO and PANTHERA came to be very sad during the 3 months they had been apart. Until LEO finally opened his feelings for PANTHERA. LEO now knew that for all this time, he had loved PANTHERA so dearly. He ran to PANTHERA's scent and they both confessed their feelings, and realized that, that feeling, that happiness was love. As a result, LEO was forced to leave the pride as well. But LEO didn't mind that, all he wanted was PANTHERA. 
After a long time, at the ages of 6 and 7, they finally had a baby liger, a beautiful female crossbreed of a lion and tiger, which was named, LIONE. (A liger is a tiger and a lion crossbred, with the male lion, and a female tiger but there is an opposite, tigon. Which is a female lion and a male tiger)

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
