A Short Hobble To The Revolutionary Museum

Hey Hey and a Big G'Day Toya,

With its tree lined streets and misty mountain ranges, Jinggangshan is feted and mythologised by dewy eyed party cadres and propaganda departments China wide. In 1927 Chairman Mao led nine hundred men hereto be joined by Zhu De's battered forces. It was from these hills that Mao launched the legendary Long March to Shaanxi Province guaranteeing Jinggang Shan's conversion from mountain range to revolutionary cradle, communist monument and overrun tourist mecca.

The main township of Ciping, also known as Jinggang Shan is nestled around a small lake in the mountains, eight hundred and twenty meters above the sea. (above from the LP)

<u>Why Is The Blog So Short (I'm rewriting it on Sunday 11th August 2013)</u>

Finally after six years travelling together my trusty old Toshiba finally died (5th August) and after waiting for a few days for English software I finally took a few days to sit and finish most of my blogs from Fuzhou through until now. BUT...the version of Office 12 they installed (I wanted Office 2007) seemed to be a 'pre-release' version and tonight just as I sat down to copy over most of what I had written from word to Travelpod 'Office 2012' decided to tell me that my Beta licence had expired and won't let me use Word at all.

I can't even copy into Word Pad.

I also always thought that Word Pad could open Word files but you lost all the 'fancy stuff', obviously it doesn't open Word files...damn for me! So instead of waiting until I get home to install my Office 2007, the blogs will simply be short because after the last two weeks with my old computer dying more each day, finally dying, waiting for a new one and then having Office lock me out;

I paid an entire One Dollar and Fifty Cents Australian for that copy...sheeeeze! I really can't be bothered with computers at the moment. Beers N Noodles toya...shane ________________________________________________________________________
