Dear Jean,

How have you been? I’m writing this to say I’m sorry that 23 your birthday. These days I felt there was something wrong, but I just couldn’t think of what it was. Yesterday afternoon on the bus, I 24 remembered what it was. Your birthday is this month, and it was two weeks ago! I feel so bad. I picked out a gift for you. I hope you like it.

By the way, 25 a great time on your birthday? I can’t wait to hear about it.

Love,

What do you think is beautiful? Some people believe that long necks are pretty, and some people think full lips look good. Being heavy is thought to be beautiful, too, by some people who do not have enough food. And now it is very popular to be thin. But remember, people are born with differences and everyone is special in some way. Lose weight if you are too heavy, but do not lose yourself at the same time.

Joyce: Can you help me take care of my roses? I’ll be away for two weeks.

Ryan: Are you crazy? Don’t you know I’m a flower killer?

Joyce: Why’s that? I remember you have a beautiful garden with all kinds of flowers. I think you’ve been taking good care of them.

Ryan: Not me. It’s my dad. He is good at growing trees and flowers. I think you should ask someone else for help. I’m really not the right person.

Joyce: But I’m leaving tomorrow morning! There’s no time to look for someone else. Please! All you have to do is to water my roses every two days. Here’s the key to my house.

When you need to see a doctor, surely you will want to see a good one. But there is one important thing you may never have thought about: Has your doctor rested enough?

Doctors in our country often have to work 34 hours or longer without sleep. Most of them work 104 hours a week, and some even 150. (There are only 168 hours a week!) One report said that a doctor who works such long hours cannot think more clearly than a drunk driver. Another found that doctors who sleep 5.8 fewer hours than the week before might make 22% more serious mistakes. Surely no one wants to get in a car that is driven by a drunk driver. So, how safe would you feel when you are under the care of a tired doctor?

Sadly this problem has been around for a long time. There are no laws about it yet and hospital bosses don’t look like they care either. And that is why we doctors are asking you to join us on the street this Sunday. Fight together with us on the street so we can fight better for your life in the hospital.

Last month Jim brought a baby cat home from the pet shop. She is beautiful with gray and white hair. Jim gave her the name Popo. He and his family love her very much and often talk to her. Popo is very shy and afraid of strangers. Every time Jim brings his friends home, she will hide herself. It takes time to make friends with Popo. But when she sees you as a friend, she will be happy to be with you all the time. Popo often lies quietly next to Jim when he is home. Sometimes she sits by the window looking at the flowers in the garden.

The family is always busy, and it is not easy for them to get together. But since they got Popo, they have tried to spend time together playing with their little girl, who has become the center of their family life.

Here is the preface of Nick Foster’s new book Married to Food.

Preface

My mother was lousy at cooking. To her, cooking was more like an exciting experiment. You put some of this and some of that in a pot, and you wait and see what will happen.No experiments, no experiences.is what she would say when her experiment did not turn out good, and I heard that a lot.

My father was a good cook, and he loved to cook, too. He often said that he got my mother to marry him with a table of delicious food, not with a beautiful ring.A family needs only one good cook,” he said.

Now I am a cook myself. And I have my own restaurant. I learned how to cook from my father, of course. From him, I learned the art of cooking. But I did learn one thing from my mother. It’s her famous saying: “No experiments, no experiences.

Dear Ming-hui,

How’s everything?

Summer vacation has started here. This is my second year in America. This year I have many chances to meet different people. My school thinks students should 43 . That’s why I was asked to work at a hospital. I didn’t get paid for the work, so at first I thought I was helping others. But later I found 44 . The work has changed me in a good way. I used to care only about my studies, but I’m different now. It made me feel good to see other people live better lives because of something I did for them.

I miss my friends in Taiwan. 45 next summer after graduating from high school. Let’s go to see our teacher Ms. Huang then. She’s going to have a baby next January.


All the best,

Yong-hong
