Hannah’s daddy was a teacher who barely made enough money to raise his six kids. Hannah wore hand-me-downs from her older sisters. For Christmas she usually got used dolls and books. As a child, she yearned to have the beautiful clothes, cars, and homes that she often saw on TV and in magazines.Several years after she graduated from college, she became part-owner of a successful interior decorating business in Manhattan. Her life became what she had dreamed about as a little girl. A successful business woman, she had a handsome, wealthy fiancé. She owned her own co-op near Central Park. She took skiing vacations in the winter and exotic cruises in the summer. At the age of 30, Hannah was on top of the world.Then she underwent a routine health checkup, and her perfect world crumbled. Her doctor told her that she had pancreatic cancer. Surgery was necessary to determine how much the cancer had sp. Hannah was operated on a week later. The surgeon suspected that cancer had sp to vital organs. Ten days later, the lab confirmed his suspicions.Hannah’s doctor said he could treat her with chemotherapy and painkillers, but it was just a matter of time before the cancer killed her. She asked how much time. He guessed that she had less than a year to live. How can this be, Hannah wondered. Doesn’t this always happen to someone else?A couple of weeks later, she visited another cancer specialist. He examined her and her medical and lab reports. He said he agreed with her surgeon. “If you have any once-in-a-lifetime plans, do them now,” he advised.Instead, Hannah spent her last months in her co-op, tended to by hospice workers. Her family and friends visited her regularly. The moment before she died, she opened her eyes and tried to say something to her fiancé. She squeezed his hand weakly.“She was in constant pain,” her fiancé said. “At the end, she could barely whisper. She weighed 80 pounds when she died. I can’t believe that God allows things like this to happen to people.” Article/201107/146498

My mom was now, just outside the door to Mister's store and the spider thought it had its chance to kill her and got y to spring. But at that very moment, Mister exchanged places with my mother to go out of the store first saying, "I will take care of it, I'm sure he won't harm me." The spider jumped and it killed Mister, as the police sirens could be heard in the distance. I woke up screaming at the top of my lungs, "No, don't kill him, don't kill Mister, don't kill Mister!!!" continuing to sob uncontrollably. My mother was aly awake as she realized I was crying in my sleep. Honey, it's a bad dream, it's a bad dream don't cry. I said, "No, no it's not, Mister is dead, Mister is dead." My mother got me to go back to sleep by promising she would take me to visit Mister in the morning.   As soon as it was light, I was anxious to see Mister, and mom true to her word took me to Mister's store as soon as we finished breakfast. We walked into the store and found everyone crying, Mister had died of a heart attack that very night. I knew that horrible evil spider had killed him, and if he had not gotten in the way it would have killed my mom instead. Now I believe that spider actually represented death, and that it had come for my mother, but Mister saved her life by giving his. Article/200901/61551

Miss Darcy and her brother appeared, and this formidable introduction took place. With astonishment did Elizabeth see that her new acquaintance was at least as much embarrassed as herself. Since her being at Lambton, she had heard that Miss Darcy was exceedingly proud; but the observation of a very few minutes convinced her that she was only exceedingly shy. She found it difficult to obtain even a word from her beyond a monosyllable.达西兄终于走进了旅馆,大家郑重其事地介绍了一番,伊丽莎白看到达西也和自己同样显得不好意思,不禁颇感惊奇。自从她来到蓝白屯以来,总是听说达西为人非常傲慢,可是这会儿她只观察了她几分钟工夫,就断定她不过是过分羞怯畏缩。达西只是唯唯喏喏,此外你休想再逼得出她一句话来。Miss Darcy was tall, and on a larger scale than Elizabeth; and, though little more than sixteen, her figure was formed, and her appearance womanly and graceful. She was less handsome than her brother, but there was sense and good humour in her face, and her manners were perfectly unassuming and gentle. Elizabeth, who had expected to find in her as acute and unembarrassed an observer as ever Mr. Darcy had been, was much relieved by discerning such different feelings.达西身材很高,身段比伊丽莎白粗壮,她虽然才十六岁,可是已经发育完全,一举一动都象大人,端庄大方。她抵不上她哥哥漂亮,可是她的脸蛋儿长得聪明有趣,仪表又谦和文雅。伊丽莎白本以为她看起人来也象达西一样尖酸刻薄,不留情面,现在见她并不如此,倒放下了心。They had not been long together before Darcy told her that Bingley was also coming to wait on her; and she had barely time to express her satisfaction, and prepare for such a visitor, when Bingley#39;s quick step was heard on the stairs, and in a moment he entered the room. All Elizabeth#39;s anger against him had been long done away; but, had she still felt any, it could hardly have stood its ground against the unaffected cordiality with which he expressed himself on seeing her again. He enquired in a friendly, though general way, after her family, and looked and spoke with the same good-humoured ease that he had ever done.他们见面不久,达西先生就告诉伊丽莎白说,彬格莱也要来拜访她;她正要说一声不胜荣幸,可是话未出口,就听见彬格莱先生上楼梯的急促的脚步声,一刹那工夫,他就进来了。伊丽莎白本来已经对他心平气和,纵使余怒未消,只要看他这次来访,情恳意切,喜庆重逢,这般情景便使得她有气也变成无气了。他亲亲切切地问候她全家安好,虽然只说了几句寻常话,可是他的容貌谈吐,却完全和从前一样安详愉快。 Article/201203/174079

One topic that never goes away is prices. It’s not surprising really. Prices affect us all. The news recently has been about rising prices. But then I suppose that’s always been the news. Prices have been rising a lot though. Especially food. I reckon food prices have gone up 50 per cent in the last year alone. This is because of a rise in the price of oil and because of commodity prices. Everything has gone up. People also complain when some prices go down. When house prices decrease, homeowners get upset. I want to buy a house, so I’m quite happy when houses are cheaper. I would like to see hotel and airline prices come down. Then I can have a nice holiday. Article/201107/144154

One day, the teacher inquired Peter: "How much is four minus four?" Peter was tongue-tied. The teacher got angry and said: "What a fool! You see, if I put four coins in your pocket, but there is a hole in your pocket and all of them leak out, now what is left in your pocket?" "The hole." Replied Peter.一天,老师问彼得:“4减4等于几?”彼得张口结舌答不上来。老师生气地说:“真笨!比如我给你衣袋里装进4个硬币,可你衣袋上有个窟窿,硬币全从这里漏掉了,那么,你衣袋里还剩下什么?”“还剩下个窟窿。”彼得答道。 Article/200805/38255

Everything started as planed on that Monday. I did my rounds and I was just enjoying working at night. Tuesday went by and I could not love my work more. But on Wednesday night was the night that changed my life pretty much. It was a pretty quiet night, no alarms or anything. At about 2.00am I was driving up towards the cemetery and parked outside the graveyard. At this cemetery I had to walk the grounds to see if everything looked O.K. Some times drunken people take the chance to get a good night's sleep around the gravestones.   At this cemetery there was a small building that I had to enter and use this device that documents my presence. When you enter the doorway you turn right and then there is a long hallway with three doors, one of these doors led downstairs to the basement where they keep the dead that are going to be buried in the coming days or so.   When I passed that door i told myself that I was lucky that I didn't have to go down there. At the end of the hallway you enter an office and that's where the device is placed. I draw my card through the device and I was free to leave the building. While I was walking back up the hallway I saw a note posted on the wall. I stopped and started ing it. Article/200902/62204
