1.When one mentions Italian cooking to most foreigners they almost automatically<自动地> think of pizza and spaghetti. This is a sad oversimplification, because Italian cooking is as diversified<多变化的,各种的> as it is delicious.

2.Pizza, for example, is a south Italian regional dish that was once served because it combined all the virtues a thrifty cook looks for--it was inexpensive, simple to make, nourishing, and tasty.

3.Pasta opens the next course of the meal and sums up the basic Italian food.

4.The truth is that the art and ease with which the Italians eat spaghetti are the result of generations of spaghetti-eating.

5.Several attempts to invent and patent a special mechanical spaghetti fork with a revolving handle have been looked upon with scorn and shocked disgust by the Italians, who say that to use such an instrument would be like eating lobster with a pitchfork.

一个成年母亲对自己母亲的祈祷,写给上帝的一封信。

为母亲祈祷

20071124 星期六 07:31 P.M.

Dear God,

Now that I am no longer young, I have friends whose mothers have _______ away. I have heard these sons and daughters say they never fully appreciated their mothers until it was too late to tell them.

 

如今我不再年轻,一些朋友的母亲已经去世。我曾听这些子女们说过,他们从没有向母亲充分表达过他们的感激之情,而待到要告诉时为时已晚了。

 

I am blessed with the dear mother who is still _______[live]. I appreciate her more each day. My mother does not change, but I do. As I grow older and wiser, I realize _______ an extraordinary person she is. How sad that I am unable to speak these words in her presence, but they flow easily from my pen.

 

幸运的是,我亲爱的母亲依然健在。我对她的感情与日俱增。母亲没有变,而我却变了。随着年岁的增长,我越来越懂事了,我认识道她是个非常了不起的人。这些话在她面前我难以启齿,但在笔下却可以轻易地写出来,这令我感到多么难过。

How does a daughter begin to thank her mother for life itself? For the love, patience and just plain hard work that go into raising a child? For running after a toddler, for understanding a moody teenager, for tolerating a college student who knows everything? For waiting for the day when a daughter realizes her mother really is?

 

一个女儿该怎样开口感谢她的母亲所给予的生命?感谢她在抚养孩子时所付出的爱、耐心以及无私的辛勤劳动?感谢她跟在蹒跚学步的孩子身后奔跑,对情绪不定的少女的理解,以及对一个自以为是的大学生的宽容?感谢她等待女儿认识到她真实一位好母亲的这一天?

 

How does a _______[grow] woman thank for a mother for continuing to be a mother? For being ready with advice(when asked ) or _______[remain] silent when it is most appreciated? For not saying:”I told you so”, when she could have uttered these words dozens of times? For being essentially herself—loving, thoughtful, patient, and forgiving?

 

一个成年女子该怎样感谢母亲依然如故的角色?感谢在被问到时她会及时提供良言,而在不需要时她会保持沉默?感谢她没有说:“我告诉过你,”而她本来可以说上许多次?感谢她始终不变的爱心、体贴周到、耐心与宽容厚道?

I don’t know how, dear God, except to bless her as richly as she deserves and to help me live up to the example she has _______. I pray that I will look as good in the eyes of my children as my mother looks in _______[i].

 

我不知道该怎样来表达,亲爱的上帝,除了请求你好好地保佑她——那时她该得到的——并帮助我朝她作出的榜样看齐。我祈愿在孩子的眼里我会如同母亲在我眼里一般好。

Chinese medicine is great

                                         ----By Yang Wentao

Traditional Chinese medicine has played a vital part in safeguarding Chinese people’s health in the past 5000 years. Nowadays, combined with modern scientific knowledge and western medical means, it is entering a new stage of its development.

The future of it is promising, and from my own experiences I must say that it is advisable to consult a Chinese doctor when you are sick.

When I was in my fifth grade, I got a serious acute sore throat. My throat swelled with pain and every time I tried to speak, I was unable to make a sound. It was as if  I had lost my speaking ability. My parents accompanied me to visit an experienced western medical doctor. The doctor proscribed a whole bunch of medicine after examining my throat and told me I would soon recover.

However, my situation worsened. Desperately, we visited a Chinese medical doctor. He checked my throat, measured my pulses, and wrote down a list of Chinese herbal medicine.

This time situation took a sharp turn. Both my parents and I were amazed at how miraculously these humble herbals worked.

It was from that experience that we began to trust Chinese medicine and place it in a higher position than western medicine in our hearts. Chinese medicine is great.
