It can get very confusing out here in California. Picked up a copy of the Orange County Register this morning, locally known as the Register to find that today's Focus on Religion is all about Zoroastrianism.

The first paragraph says: "The vultures are disappearing from Bombay." Yes, that's right folks, the vulture is becoming an endangered species in India. Zoroastrians lay out their dead on so-called Towers of Silence and vultures get to eat out. We're happy to report, however, that vultures are far from an extinct species here at this Register.

You can find the OC Register piece here.

And no, we don't think OC Register stands for overclocked Register...

John Tu, co-founder of Kingston Technology, has a little problem with anyone called Henry. He and David Sun started Kingston after a previous business venture that paid handsome dividends. However, a guy called Henry invested all their money in stocks and come Black Monday, a date that Tu says is indelibly impressed on his mind, they lost the lot and were even worried about being able to buy bread and milk. All went well at Kingston, and they made billions when Softbank bought 80 per cent of them a few years back.

Then they bought Kingston back from Softbank for a fraction of the price, and had so much money sloshing round that Sun bought the Mandarin Restaurant in Irvine out when it looked like it might close. And it's co-run by a Chinese chef called Henry. No relation. He's the good Henry... ®
