Beautiful letter from Chinese Professor at the Beijing Institute of Graphic Communication

From: Professor Nancy Cao
To:"Dr. Peter J. Shield PhD"

Dear Dr. Shield,
You are an amazing person, and I did a search on you. I want to tell you how you influenced me while growing up on your program on mysteries. I learned much and gained much knowledge about the world and was always wanting to learn more about those archeological finds you unmasked. I truly enjoyed them. I must say that they were part of the impetus that made me a professor and gave me the sense of wonder of discovery.
I would like to find your books and read them if possible. I live in China, where it would be rather difficult to obtain them. Perhaps, if you have any back copies, you would graciously consent to send me a few, to be donated to the Beijing Institute of Graphic Communications in Beijing, China after reading them several times. They would be greatly enjoyed by our students, who also have a vast history of many discoveries still being made today. I wonder if you have participated in any of the research being done in China today. If this is possible, please let me know and I will send you my address. The website for the university is http://www.bigc.edu.cn/ and it has been translated into English.
I was also wondering if any of your works have been translated into Chinese. Dr. Su and I specialize in joint translations for publication in China. We did the book, Read My Lips, No More Taxes by Dan Ostrander about ex-President George W. Bush Sr., a huge success here in China.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
My belated condolences on the loss of a beloved son, as per from your website.
Professor Nanxi Cao

Dr. Shield's Book on Retiring to Malta - "Malta - Mediterranean Jewel"
Valletta - Capitol of Malta - click here.
Sunshine and balmy Mediterranean sea breezes, palaces that once were home to the Knights of Malta, and a western lifestyle equal to anywhere outside of the USA; all of these things await the enlightened entrepreneur as well as the discerning retiree on this island jewel. Offering an outstanding quality of life, the clean and picturesque nation of Malta boasts excellent housing, fine restaurants, nightclubs and casinos, and numerous outdoor recreational activities.
"The Maltese are a delightful people. Despite the strong Catholic influence they remain surprisingly inhibition-free. Their culture is founded on worship of the female form"
The diversity of Malta's population of about 400,000 people, whose ethnic origins represent many of the lands around the Mediterranean and Europe, extends to the everyday life of its residents. Maltese is the national language; however English is an official language and it is the language in which most business is conducted. Italian is also spoken by many residents and much of the population is multi-lingual.
The Maltese government welcomes retirees from around the globe. But Malta does not penalize you with subtropical heat or mosquitoes; no terrorist plots or even interest. Just life at a pace you choose, at a cost that increases your pension value. And, while Malta has become a premier retirement destination for these reasons, it likewise rewards business and investment. "To increase economic growth, the Government has taken measures to cut costs drastically while embarking on an expansive program of privatization and raising foreign capital. Companies setting up in Malta can benefit from a wide range of favorable incentives under the Business Promotion Act" Maltese society today is remarkably sophisticated, steeped as it is in European culture and adorned with the palaces of the Grand Masters. And you can enjoy life at whatever level of society you choose. At Megalithic Temple sites dating back to over 4000 BC you can see the remains of the Mother Goddess preserving the enigmatic purity at the heart of some of the most magical and spellbinding locations on this mysterious island. You can stroll unobserved through unattended fields and discovered archaeological remains that lie unattended and ignored. Yet every modern convenience is at your disposal and you alone will dictate your level of involvement. You can choose to hide away in some small unsophisticated local village that will have changed little over the last few hundred years or take part in the exciting growth that Malta's newly acquired membership in the EU is slowly bringing about.
And nightlife abounds in St..Julians and all of the tourist areas across the island, from discos to five-star restaurants. Consider this intriguing, well-connected locale for business, for pleasure, and for a unique and diverse lifestyle in a land possessed of great historic character.
With Dr. Shield's book - "Malta " you'll have the facts at your fingertips, and they'll speak wonders about this rewarding destination, known and treasured throughout the centuries. You'll have the priceless advice of a seasoned traveler as well as the first-hand experience of someone who has been an active resident of Malta. You'll get personal anecdotes and plenty of links to essential pages, all of which continue to develop with time. You can get in on the action now, it's still going strong after all these years.
