Back to Work

Back to work again today, woke up very tired still from the weekend, a few more early nites may be needed to recover fully. Spent yesterday at the Cotswolds water park, was great, swimming, beach volleyball, tree climbing, frisbee and wrestling... great day.
Went into Aylesbury to try and get a bank account today, Danbo's pessimism it would appear is well founded when it comes to English banks. They want a letter from the doctors because they need something official confirming my address (don't worry about my NHS card which I got from the doctors, you need more proof). It's not that annoying except that it's a pain to go into Aylesbury repetitively and there's not much that's actually fun to do there, and by not much, I mean nothing. Or so I thought until Mim and I were on our way back to the car. A really tank bloke came jogging round the corner, which I didn't think much of until just after he'd passed us and a female police officer came jogging around the corner after him. Mim and I cracked up as we realised what was happening, it may not sound like a funny moment but if you'd been there you'd understand, and we turned to watch as a male officer came tearing around the corner from the other direction and the big bloke jumped a wall just getting away (although the male cop got his shirt) and cut back the other direction with both cops in pursuit. The bloke then ran down an alley which seemed like a dead end until he made an impressive jump and hauled himself up onto a roof and made a dash for the other side. The male cop hurled his batton after him but missed fortunately. I say fortunately because the throw could well have done some serious damage if it had of connected. Our fun done, Mim and I continued to the car with a discussion topic that lasted most of the way home.
I watched 2 movies on the weekend that I'm happy to recomend: A Knights Tale and The Inside Man. One is a great medieval comedy/drama/action which most should enjoy. The other is about a bank job that is also very well done but has the odd bit of strong language so if that kind of thing outs you off steer clear.
O, and the Photo site is up and running at last!! I started work on it on Friday nite and have only just got it going with all the basics. Try the link in the sidebar.

Zac, you said to Marcus you needed clarity about Greece. Have you tried asking God specifically for clarity,then give yourself a bit of time and go with your instinct. Been reading about the inward witness of the Spirit and our strongest impressions usually being right. Rings true for me.Love Mum.

very good blogger site!.

Do you know BBC News (14/09/2006) Acupuncture for low back pain is cost-effective and works, according to medical researchers. Two studies on bmj.com suggest a short course of acupuncture would benefit patients and healthcare providersThe cost is well below the threshold used by officials to decide whether the NHS can afford to fund a set treatment, they said. Up to 80% of UK residents experience back pain at some point in their lives, costing the NHS £480m a year.—(BBC News 14/09/2006)

And, What do you think about it? Something as follow:

Chinese acupuncture practitioner had almost been accused for website’s ads in Bristol

Dr Zhentong Han is a Chinese registered acupuncturist with twenty years of clinical experience. He is very popular among the patients in the area with outstanding technique. The appointments for him in the clinic in Bradford were always full, however, at Bristol, another place where he set up his business; there were troubles from the competitions in the same field.

It started at the acupunctural website of Dr Han(http://www.backachetherapy.co.uk), which occupied the NO.1 place in a international websites about acupuncture (http://www.passion-4.net/tables/Acupuncture.html). Because of the large number of patients attracted by this website which introduced traditional Chinese acupuncture for backache therapy,and top position in yahoo and google. it caught great attention of other businesses in the same field in a very short time. Some practitioner even registered company names using key words about acupuncture , and notified Dr Han and other practitioners to stop using the some key words for advertising the website. Or else they would probably be charged by the law.

Dr Han claimed that he regretted deeply for the matter, but he didn’t want to get involved in this legal dispute, for the purpose of having a website is not to score high on the network, but to have more patients understand the most veracious Chinese traditional acupunctural techniques through his website, so to help more patients get rid of the pain.
