Children dragons located on the left of King. Children Dragon was on the left of King, its named BI Qiu. Everyone want to be rich will love it.

Children Dragons were on the right of King.

The stone dragons were located on the north west of Handan city, the head of King Dragon point to tomb of King Zhao.
The King Dragon have 369 meters long, most of its body was covered by mountains, another 9 small dragons have about 200 meters long.

They were found by local farmers on 1989 when they dig earth. Just start to open this 1st May.

About the ancient dragons, no more studies except its materials. Sounds like the there is no same stone materials around the dragons. The first dragon was found is not the King, it is small one. After take more earth, cut off the top of mountains, here found all 10 dragons.

China have one proverb, 'King Dragon have 9 children, every children are difference'. These dragons block are just compliance with the words.

It is miracle of China.

PS. On GoogleEarth, there is one photo of earlier stone dragons which did not open, its coordinations N 36/43/27, E 114/22/13

Netherland - Update programme for PK000002

Recently the programme of PK000002 was updated, had gave us several main changes:

1, multiple purchases was allowed in one transaction;

2, the position of value moved to more left than before, that means the gap get bigger between value and machine number. See above picture, left is old programme, right is the updated;

3, new function to get value of 'Bijfrankeren' directly. Since 2th Jan 2007, the domestic rate was changed from 0,39 to 0,44. For those peoples have stamps with value 0,39 euros, they can get 'additional value' 0,05 euro to match the new rate. Base on the receipt of new programme, you can see word 'Bijfrankeren'. Below receipt please check, left is old one, right is new.

Check the receipts, there are more deviation from last programme.

1, Program error, that make the number of Hemestede from 2101 to 2121. The new programme was still in test, not correction.

2, The word 'postkantoor' (means post office) was moved from center to top left, and the letter was smaller. This position change included other words, address, number, date, time, working time.

3, The gap of all characters was smaller than before.

4, Maybe above two changes made the Euro value of BTW did not align.

5, For the saturday, it did not use abbreviation Za, it imprint full text zaterdag.

6, For the date, it used year 07, not 2007.

7, Change the first letter of 'Ma t/m vr' from upper to lower.

For PK000001, it still used old programme. Maybe it will updated also after the new programme was approved by customers, of course it must correct the errors.

The pakcage label was updated also according to the new programme, see below.

1, It correct the machine number, remove one zero from six to five.

2, Remove text PK.
