Dear Anne, Just to remind you that my Godson Michael Liddell will be playing at the Ealing Hospital on the 9th May (1 pm), unfortunately Hugh Mather will be away and I will have to do the introduction! Best wishes, John

Anne, Regarding your energy section, do you call for articles, are they proposed to you, or do you interview and compile others' thoughts into a coherent whole?

If I may ask, what is your relationship with Global Energy Business / Platt's?

How I found you? It was probably a search engine. I can't tell for sure because I had your site bookmarked a long time ago as a source of info on energy conferences - only a tiny part of the Anne Ku series of web sites, as it turned out.

26 April 2003Regarding your book exchange, I also do a lot of buying and try to get rid of books for the same reason as you. I have done it through Amazon US's marketplace. I believe Amazon UK (and also DE) have marketplaces, so you can try that venue. My sales have been hardly profitable because of the shipping costs France > US. Finally, congratulations for your page. It treats serious subjects, is informative, without being too soporific.

I took a look at your webpage last night and your Bon Journal and I disagree with what you said about yourself living in the past. You are a very forward thinker and I only wish that I had an once of the integrity and energy for discovering life that you have. You must enjoy the moment and don't change that's what makes you special.

Long time no hear. What seems to be the problem? Yes, I took my site off the web. But as you can see I have added something to my email. If you want to add to your site, you may. I will be updating it every so often.
25 April 2003I saw your link to on your webpage and thought that our site may be of help to your visitors. Our users commonly comment that HTML Code Tutorial is one of the best on the web; and we recently added a Help Forum, which you can click on from the home page and get personalized help. We would be grateful for a link to our site from your site.
25 April 2003I just absolutely love your website! I love Titanic also, and when I saw your flute sheet music for the theme song, I just died! I wanna thank you for having the best music site!

Words to remember for a while:
Girls are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. The boys don't want to reach for the good ones because they're afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead they just get the rotten apples that are on the ground, that aren't as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think that there is something wrong with them, when in reality, they are amazing. That is why we just have to be a little patient and the right boy, the one who takes a chance to find the good, right apple, will come someday...
Send this to all the girls who you know are at the top of the tree.

Oh and thanks for the article, great piece of work - you've got some good names again
24 April 2003
It is nice to hear from after such a long. Hope things are going great with you. I wish I could attend one of your concerts. For us, the weather sucks a little bit (feels like London for last two weeks) and the business is better overall. Again, let me know if you going to be around in the San Francisco Bay Area.
23 April 2003
I just took a look to your homepage! Admirable, incredible! How do you find the time to do all this!! Your piano compositions are precious! Congratulations! Really great! Kindest greetings!

Very nice job on the article. I would've recognized it was you even without the byline. Table 2 is especially informative. But you know me; the piece could've used a bit more editing throughout. And note the spelling of "enviromental" on EPRM's home page. Must be a Brit thing, I guess.

You asked us to "Please contact Webmaster if you miss reading these entries". Well, I hope this says it all...

We Love Your Bon Journal

Once upon the Web there is Bon Journal
Where we used to read a tale or two
Willingly we surf away the hours
Admiring the great things you could do

We love your Bon Journal
We want it up-to-date
We'll go online forgetful of the day
We read the life you choose
We'd laugh and let it loose
For we're your fans, and we are here to stay

BEGGAR'S CHICKEN - great recipe! This recipe and many other excellent ones too are available at
17 April 2003Hi Anne, Do you have a book on flexibility? I saw your thesis (good stuff!), and was wondering if there were a book also.
17 April 2003Wow what a powerful email that you just sent I wish I was so invigorated about life you have been really dealing with a lot of embedded issues good for you. I can only imagine that it is very emotional but it will be worth it if you can discover that thing that we all look for then you are there. 'Soul Searching'

We are a Reprographics shop in Greenville NC and we have a customer who wants a photo copied. The photo is very old, but it is protected by a copyright. The name of the photo studio that took the photograph is Bon Art Studio in Jacksonville, Florida. Would happen to have any info to help us. Ravon R.

analyticalQ: Sorry, you must have come to via Bon Journal which is not Bon Art. Good luck with your search.

Just been to the violin and piano concert at Drapers Hall. It was excellent. I met some pleasant people and the supper was good.

It was a real good article. It shed some light on a subject that although I have been working with for six months, still didn't quite fully understand. I know Fred liked it. He has already received calls from people who have seen it.
15 April 2003
It sounds like you've been a busy girl. Now, who would or could still call you a girl after all these years? Perhaps someone you remember, but have forgotten all these years. Someone who knew you well and treated you as a little sister. I read some of your achievements and am very impressed and proud. I always knew that you'd be successful in any endeavor that you sought, even though you were still quirky to me! Write back when you're not busy, would love to catch up with you and your family as well.

Just read this:

Uh Oh. Get Less Than 6 Hours of Sleep... ...and it could impair your mental performance as much as not getting any sleep for two nights in a row. In other words, too little sleep is as dangerous and debilitating as no sleep. According to a new study from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, those who sleep less than six hours a night--which, face it, is many of us--are slower to react, not able to think as clearly, and are unable to perform simple memory tasks, reports Reuters.

Dear friends

I am writing to let you know about the forthcoming concert (7 May 2003, London) in aid of The Nightingale Project. This time it features the remarkable pianist, Ronan Magill, Benjamin Britten's last protege, who will be playing a programme including Debussy, Schubert, Chopin and Prokofiev. The venue is once again the astonishingly beautiful Leighton House.

Some of those attending previous concerts there have said that their first glimpse of the interior of the house alone justified the ticket price, even before the music started! So if you haven't seen it yet, come and see what you've been missing. I'm attaching a flyer with details. Following some 'complaints' last time that the tickets were far too cheap, you will see that the suggested price is higher this time. If you don't feel able to afford the full rate, however, choose the reduced rate, or name any amount of your choosing between the two! The ticket price includes your interval wine. If you can't read the attachment, or need further information, please contact me.
With best wishes, Nick

12 April 2003These 2 articles are good nighttime readings. The reason why it is good to write your journal and do self-improvement readings at night, before bed, is so your subconscious absorbs the good positive messages throughout the night, and in the morning you will feel better.

British doctor says "Medicine in my country is so advanced that we can take a brain out of one man, put it in another and have him looking for work in six weeks."

A German doctor says, "That's nothing, we can take a brain out of one person, put it in another and have him preparing for war in four weeks.

The American doctor, not to be outdone, says, "You guys are way behind, we just took a man with no brain out of Texas, put him in the White House, and now half the country is looking for work, and the other half preparing for war."

On your concert:

I doubt very much if you'd get many takers if people are asked to send a deposit in advance. Most people would just await a free event. At least, that's been my experience so far. I'm not sure it would be worth doing on that basis. But when I invited people to apply to the concert manager for the 200 free tickets I had for the Hong Kong Philharmonic Concert at the Barbican, all 200 tickets went (since it was free), and, although not everyone turned up, the hall was reasonably crowded. I would have thought that it would have been better to keep it free, but ask donations.

Please let me know what you decide, but I'm not sure if I'd want do do it as one of my events if people had to pay you up front, as I don't think enough people would turn up to make it worthwhile all the e-mailing. And then it wouldn't be so much fun for those that did come if hardly anyone else turned up at the meeting point.

I wanted to make contact for a number of reasons, firstly to congratulate you on the success of the site and secondly to make a proposal regarding my own.

TCR (The Complaints Register) has developed a new technology that is sort of related to advanced workflow but which allows communications to be generated based on user definable 'Context' and 'Scenarios'. This is especially relevent to complaints handling where multiple workflows and complaint facets are required to be tracked and communications generated as appropriate.

Thanks for your reply and yes it does a bit (seem like a complaint site) - certainly it can be interpreted that way. I was basically surfing for interesting sites using google and came across yours mainly from links from other sites.

I am Patty's cousin, Barbi. We have never met but I heard alot about you when Patty first returned from Okinawa. Patty, my sister Cathy and I shared a bedroom, clothes and lots of secrets the first 13 or 14 yrs of our lives. I was missing her very much today and came across your website. I just wanted to say thanks~ it is too bad you lost touch. If you thought she was remarkable in highschool, you would have loved even more at the end of her life. She was really, finally happy. A truly incredible person. We had so much fun the night before she disappeared. We were lucky to have had her the short time we did. Take care Anne.

It is amazing that you have your own net and present your concert in England! So far we are ok in the countryside far from the SARS infected area in downtown, thanks for your concern. Wishing you every success in your concert.

Sixth Grade Research
1. Ancient Egypt was inhabited by mummies and they all wrote in hydraulics. They lived in the Sarah Dessert. The climate of the Sarah is such that the inhabItants have to live elsewhere.

2. Moses led the Hebrew slaves to the Red Sea where they made unleavened bread which is bread made without any ingredients. Moses went up on Mount Cyanide to get the ten commandments. He died before he ever reached Canada.

3. Solomom had three hundred wives and seven hundred porcupines.

4. The Greeks were a highly sculptured people and without them we wouldn't have history. The Greeks also had myths. A myth is a female moth.

5. Socrates was a famous Greek teacher who went around giving people advice. They killed him. Socrates died from an overdose of wedlock. After his death, his career suffered a dramatic decline.

6. In the Olympic games, Greeks ran races, jumped, hurled biscuits, and threw the java.

7. Julius Caesar extinguished himself on the battlefields of Gaul. The Ides of March murdered him because they thought he was going to be made king. Dying, he gasped out: "Tee hee, Brutus."

8. Joan of Arc was burnt to a steak and was cannonized by Bernard Shaw.

9. Queen Elizabeth was the "Virgin Queen." As a queen she was a success. When she exposed herself before her troops they all shouted "hurrah."

10. It was an age of great inventions and discoveries. Gutenberg invented removable type and the Bible. Another important invention was the circulation of blood. Sir Walter Raleigh is a historical figure because he invented cigarettes and started smoking. Sir Fransis Drake circumcised the world with a 100-foot clipper.

11. The greatest writer of the Renaissance was William Shakespeare. He was born in the year 1564, supposedly on his birthday. He never made much money and is famous only because of his plays. He wrote tragedies, comedies, and hysterectomies, all in Islamic pentameter. Romeo and Juliet is an example of a heroic couple. Romeo's last wish was to be laid by Juliet.

12. Writing at the same time as Shakespeare was Miguel Cervantes. He wrote "Donkey Hote." The next great author was John Milton. Milton wrote "Paradise Lost." Then his wife died and he wrote "Paradise Regained."

13. Delegates from the original 13 states formed the Contented Congress. Thomas Jefferson, a Virgin, and Benjamin Franklin were two singers of the Declaration of Independence. Franklin discovered electricity by rubbing two cats backwards and declared, "A horse divided against itself cannot stand." Franklin died in 1790 and is still dead.

14. Abraham Lincoln became America's greatest Precedent. Lincoln's mother died in infancy, and he was born in a log cabin which he built with his own hands. Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves by signing the Emasculation Proclamation. On the night of April 14, 1865, Lincoln went to the theater and got shot in his seat by one of the actors in a moving picture show. They believe the assinator was John Wilkes Booth, a supposingly insane actor. This ruined Booth's career.

15. Johann Bach wrote a great many musical compositions and had a large number of children. In between he practiced on an old spinster which he kept up in his attic. Bach died from 1750 to the present. Bach was the most famous composer in the world and so was Handel. Handel was half German, half Italian and half English. He was very large.

16. Beethoven wrote music even though he was deaf. He was so deaf he wrote loud music. He took long walks in the forest even when everyone was calling for him. Beethoven expired in 1827 and later died for this.

17. The nineteenth century was a time of a great many thoughts and inventions. People stopped reproducing by hand and started reproducing by machine. The invention of the steamboat caused a network of rivers to spring up. Cyrus McCormick invented the McCormick raper, which did the work of a hundred men. Louis Pasteur discovered a cure for rabbis. Charles Darwin was a naturalist who wrote the Organ of the Species. Madman Curie discovered radio. And Karl Marx became one of the Marx Brothers.

8 April 2003

This morning I spent half an hour or so on your web site, first listening to a few pieces at random to see what change or progression I would hear between the earlier compositions like Patty my friend , and the more recent Mr.Tidworth.

Then I clicked over to, and got lost in your writings, not reading progressively, but again at random, despite which, I suddenly felt like an intruder sneaking a look into your personal life and history, so I signed off. It is fascinating, and I am sure I will be drawn back into this world again tomorrow,(like a child drawn into the world of C.S.Lewis?). I guess this is the kind of feedback you get from others, who are invited to, or have just stumbled upon your web site.

One of only a few entries I read was "Double Rainbows", and that was an amazing co-incidence, for I too live on a house boat.

7 April 2003Be sure to clear the snow before you come out to play with strange vibrations in the ether. Of breakdowns: the zen student told his master -- "My legs get sore and I feel very uncomfortable when I meditate." "It will pass," replied the master. Two weeks later the student came back and said "Master, I feel great, and my meditations are so smooth." "It will pass" replied the master.

It was good to see you and I hope you got home safely. I think the idea of everyone bringing a dish worked quite well, didnít you? I liked your rice Ė you must tell me how you do it. Iíve been listening to your marvellous compositions and have now lent the CD to Gloria. Are you going to sell copies at your concert?

6 April 2003I thought it was a real fun party which everyone seems to have enjoyed - and very nice people they all were. And as usual, you were the tops with your chicken and relaxed disposition - forget about anything I said about you being stressed!! Despite my meddling, Clemencia's rice was great and so was her dancing. And can you believe they all talked non-stop from 4 till 10 pm? Anyway, thank you very very much for all the help and food, you were great.

I know you're very busy, but the page instructed us to email the webmaster if we miss reading the entries in March. Well...I miss them. Hope you find time to catch up and possibly even rest!
4 April 2003If you could receive one gift for your Birthday, and it could be ANYTHING you wanted, what would it be? I'm having a devil of a time deciding what to get you. So, I just figured I would ask you directly. Think it over. Reflect. Take your time. But don't take too long. It takes time to deliver things from the States to the U.K.
4 April 2003That isn't weird at all (i.e. writing to forget). I can appreciate the way you think. Letting thoughts run out your fingertips truly is a release. In your case, the thoughts end up on piano keys or paper, and in my case, onto a sleeve of transparency film.

I recently went over your website, didn't know you had a feature on squat toilets in China! You must be doing a lot of your adventures.

Are you sure you're looking in the right places for Yamahas? It certainly does sound expensive. The second hand market here is definitely more buoyant than in other European countries (like Italy, for example) where no-one likes to buy anything second hand! Don't go to shops - try the personal ads.
