After all this medical talk the readers deserve some light relief. Accordingly I have added the following:

(note: None of the below can be opened by clicking on to title is highlighted in red)


Deeply profound so described by my friend who sent it to me. A sexually incorrect joke for the male chauvinist.

My readers may recall me saying that in order to ensure that I had the full attention of my Chinese students, at the beginning of my lectures, I often started with something totally unexpected — a Latin quotation; a saying from Confucius,  or with an outrageous comment.
Therefore, when I received the following joke this morning I couldn’t resist reproducing it here to demonstrate the point. I know that this  it’s a little rude and I thought for a brief second that I might substitute the word  ‘arsehole’ with ‘anus’, but then realised there this will not have the same impact, or indeed be quite so funny. The prurient can always skip the joke.
Professor Higgins at the University of Sydney was giving a lecture on ‘Involuntary Muscle Contraction’ to his first year medical students. Realising this was not the most riveting subject, the professor decided to lighten the mood slightly.

He pointed to a young woman in the front row and said, ‘Do you know what your arsehole is doing while you’re having an orgasm?’

She replied, ‘Probably out fishing with his mates!’

It took 45 minutes to restore order in the classroom.

This reminds me of a lesson that I learnt early on in my arbitration career that is taught to every advocate, Never ask a question to which you do not already know the answer.

Now that I have finally made the decision that it is impossible for me to give my lectures in China this year, the reader may recall that I raised the subject of the possibility of one final sunshine holiday, with the good doctor Long. Having considered Dubai and Cyprus, both of which I have been to on very many occasions, we opted for Hua Hin and the Anantara, resort. (See video section – The Beautiful and Anantara) I agreed with Mick that I would sound out the  possibility with the hotel. The Hotel Manager. Director of Operations, Tim Boda, could not have been more welcoming or enthusiast. He went to great lengths with his staff to demonstrate. through photographs, how we could manoeuvre the wheelchair to the various parts of the site that I used regularly.

He also offered the choice of two downstairs rooms, both of which get an element of either morning or afternoon sunshine, which was one of my requirements. He even offered to put the odd ramp  in place and to cut back bushes and flowers, where necessary, to allow access for wheelchair. How can we possibly not accept such a kind offer and I suspect that when the good doctor arrives next Friday we will research various flights and take a chance and book for mid-October in the hope that I have not gone that much further down hill in the i -Intervening year and a half months.
