Share In the Land of Shangri-La
longbeachbum 2019-9-3 11:30
In April, me and my partner spent two glorious weeks in China. My sister lives there, her husband is posted with the State Department at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing. I’ve had a thing for China ever since I read “Riding the Iron Rooster” by Paul Theroux when I was a teenager, though the country portrayed in that classic travelogue is a far cry from what it is today. China makes the news in the U.S. a lot nowadays and mainly for the wrong reasons: trade tariffs. But forget that ...

If it is true
A college is not good for the many multi-story buildings it has, but for the many good teachers it attracts. But the reality is not so satisfying, as a piece of writing of a student shows: a student's writing about his teacher

Share Words And Their Meanings
KIyer 2019-8-22 10:48
Long ago when I lived in the USA, I noticed that most words used there politically and in media were just labels. These labels often meant nothing close to the original meaning of the words they were derived from, sometimes they really meant the opposite - they were just meant to artificially create a feeling of being goodness/political correctness through association.. A 'liberal' does not necessarily have a mostly liberal outlook towards others, a 'democrat' does not follow de ...

Share What is the happiness?
LanaLiao 2019-8-18 18:03
Once I heard a story, it's said that a puppy all day asked, "Mom, after all, what's the happiness, the puppy stared, looking at his mom, to get an answer." Mom told her child,"happiness is your tail!" Thereupon, the puppy, for the potential happiness, the whole day, ran after his tail, his happiness, so that he can seized it. The puppy ran in circle, wouldn't catch his tail. A good while later, the puppy got tired, and lay on the ground, out of breath, didn't decide to run in circles for happine ...

Share The Christmas Spirit
KIyer 2019-8-15 10:17
Met with a grumpy old man, a friend of mine with a heart of gold today. He always affectionately addresses me as "son". He is in hospital on a long recovery. I took my son along as he likes this curmudgeon. It was our "Christmas presence" for him. He was very happy to see us and in his usual manner gave my son some advice fondly with his put-on "grinch face". He always spoke about not giving gifts on occasions, not wasting money and that too borrowed money... He wants the younger generation to ...

Dear friends, long time no see! Almost the girls, I think, love this or that, these or those, flowers, living flowers, or artificial flowers. Me, too. 搜索 复制 At home, especially at summer, once a day I water the jonquil and asparagus fern. The aloe, we all know, is tolerant to drought, so, I sometimes water it. I am unable to plant the jonquil, asparagus fern and aloe, I get tired, because previous living flowers, when I took home alive, ...

Share Lost-in-Feelings Programme Set
shehemego 2019-8-4 11:00
A violent emperor is not stopped by telling him what he should do. He knows what it is good and what is wrong but just forgets, forgets, forgets. He is so deep in feeling full of himself, so full of excitement, what people call madness instead. He is the victim who people hope him to be good but don’t help him out. I can’t control my feelings. I keep wanting excitement of laughter and keep feeding myself entertainments, keep watching people laugh and make jokes. I keep wa ...

Share "Democracy" of the West taken to the extreme.
huaqiao 2019-7-28 12:49
The "free world" under the influence of the west has been following the western concept of "democracy", "freedom" and "human rights" (DFHR) for decades citing the "right to cast vote" for a government as the "ultimate right" of every individual. However, in many cases and countries, it seems more like the right to cast lots and hoping for the best outcome. The Gettysburg Address by Abraham Lincoln introduced a famous quote which says a government should be "of the people, by the ...

I can’t imagine that it has been three months for last topic. Every day I remind myself to insist in writing the English blog. But it seems that there is no time to do this every day. Certainly it can been said to be a excuse. It has passed half for 2019, I can’t remember what I have done for the past six months. I only know I was very busy every day. It still seems that all time spent for the work. But I can’t also can fee ...
