Update on Banking crisis... news from Japan

Following the problems in the lending market in America and the run on HBOS in the UK, uncertainty has now hit Japan.

In the last 7 hours the Origami Bank has folded, Sumo Bank has gone belly up and Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some of its branches.  Yesterday, it was announced that Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song, while today shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived.

Samurai Bank is soldiering on following sharp cutbacks, Ninja Bank is reported to have taken a hit, but they remain in the black.  Furthermore, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank where it is feared that staff may get a raw deal.

Almost a major disaster this week as the hard drive on the computer died.  Fortunately I was able to restore all the data from an on-line backup in the cloud.  So once a new hard drive was installed the data was re-synced back to the local computer.

This should serve as a timely reminder to everyone to make sure all that precious data is protected, especially the copious amount of digital photographs we all keep.  The best way of doing it is to keep a copy on an external drive away from your computer plus an off-site backup online.  This has the advantage that should there be a burglary or fire you have the added security of a backup away from the property.  The reason I use an on-line backup is as soon as I create or save a file it is automatically created and saved on-line without any further intervention from myself.  No having to remember to make that backup which many people are guilty of.

Anyone who needs help in implementing this set-up please get in touch for assistance.

New pages have been added this week, firstly a quiz about Oscar Winners.  Secondly in the Useful Bits section a page about Budget Planning with a lot of the information coming from Martin Lewis of Money Saving Expert fame.  Hopefully this will help everyone out there with the pressures coming from the governments autumn cuts.  I’ve tried it myself and the on-line calculators make it very simple to understand even though its not something we would like to be doing.

If there is any other Useful Bits of information you would want to appear in this section get in touch by e-mail.

Funny Joke: posted by Thomas 8th July 2010

In the Hospital the relatives gathered in the waiting room, where their family member lay gravely ill.  Finally, the doctor came in looking tired and somber.

"I'm afraid I am the bearer of bad news," he said as he surveyed the worried faces, "The only hope left for your loved one at this time is a brain transplant.  It's an experimental procedure, semi-risky, and you will have to pay for the brain yourselves."

The family members sat silent as they absorbed the news.  After a length of time, someone asked, "Well, how much does a brain cost?" The Doctor quickly responded, "£5000 for a male brain, and £200 for a female brain."

The moment turned awkward.  Men in the room tried not to smile, avoiding eye contact with the women, but some actually smirked.  A man, unable to control his curiosity, blurted out the question everyone wanted to ask, "Why is the male brain so much more?"

The doctor smiled at the childish innocence and then to the entire group said, "It's just standard pricing procedure.  We have to mark down the price of the female brains, because they've been used."
