The Guest

‘The landscape seen from our windows is certainly charming, ’ said Annabel; ‘those cherry orchards and green meadows, and the river winding along the valley. However, nothing ever happens here. Rather dreadful, isn’t it?’

‘On the 32___________, said Matilda, ‘I find it soothing and restful; but then, you see, I’ve lived in countries where things do happen, especially when you’re not ready for them happening all at once.’

‘That, of course, makes a 33___________, said Annabel.

‘T’ll never forget, ’ said Matilda, ‘the occasion when the Bishop of Bequar 34___________us an unexpected visit.’

‘I thought that out there you were always prepared for emergency guests turning 35___________, said Annabel.

‘I was quite prepared for half a dozen Bishops, ’ said Matilda, ‘but it was rather disconcerting to find out that this particular one was a distant cousin of mine, belonging to a branch of the family that had quarrelled bitterly and offensively with our branch about a Crown Derby dessert service. To make 36___________ worse, my husband was away, talking sense to a village community that believed one of their leading men was a were-tiger.’

‘A what tiger?’

‘A were-tiger; you’ve heard of were-wolves, haven’t you, a mixture of wolf and human being and demon? Well, in those parts they have were-tigers, or think they have, and I must say that in this case they had every ground for thinking so. However, as we gave 37___________ witchcraft prosecutions about three hundred years ago, we don’t like to have other people keeping up our discarded practices.’

‘I hope you weren’t unkind to the Bishop, ’ said Annabel.

‘Well, of course he was my guest, so I had to be outwardly polite to him, but he was tactless enough to rake up the incidents of the old quarrel, and from that moment we were scarcely on speaking 38___________.

What a Trick!

Lisa and I have been friends since the third grade. We both loved to ride our bikes and loved spending the holidays, weekends, and summers together.

One summer, we settled 32___________ cleaning up her room. As soon as we started, “Lisa’s mom called her for some help. Vacuuming was my favorite part of cleaning, so I decided to clean up every spot. When I bent over to suck up the dust under the dresser, I found a book with the word DIARY on it.

The book was bright pink and looked more like old scraps of paper than a diary. Usually I would not snoop in private belongings, but when I picked it up from underneath the dresser I saw that the pages were messed up and I decided to put them back together. While doing so, Isaw my name in a passage that really 33___________ my attention: ‘It made me cry when Papa told me we’re moving to Sri Lanka. He told me not to tell Nadine because it might break her heart. Well, I will just enjoy the last summer I have now.’

Friends help me realize my good qualities. Even though I felt 34___________ over the situation, I decided not to spoil our friendship. At that point, I 35___________ a vow to give Lisa the best summer I could.

The next day, Lisa had complete control. I 36___________ her do things I even hated doing. We went to the boring museum. We watched her stupid brother, Line, do his band show. Finally, Lisa became 37___________ of what I was doing. ‘Why are you doing all this? It’s not my birthday or anything.’

‘Lisa, I know you’re moving to Sri Lanka. I’ve read your diary, ’ I confessed. ‘Are you talking about this?’ Lisa held up the same pink notepad I saw the previous day and started to laugh. ‘This notebook isn’t my diary. It was a novel I started on. I was making a story about you and me.’

I felt relieved but confused and I couldn’t 38___________ but ask, ‘What about the title?

It does say ‘DIARY’ on it?’

‘I put that there so no one would read it until I finished. Do you really think I would move to Sri Lanka and not tell you? Ha, that’s a laugh!’ Lisa exploded with unstoppable laughter.

The Phoenix Legend

This magical, mythical bird has long been a part of legends, dating 32___________ to ancient civilizations. In today’s culture, the phoenix’s legend is still going 33___________, with a major city in the United States named after the resurrecting beast and popular books and movies, including the phenomenally successful ‘Harry Potter’ series encompassing the bird into characters and plots.

Since the story has come 34___________ to us through the oral tradition, there is no single version of it. It varies from teller to teller-each adding something of their own and changing tiny aspects of it. 35___________ , the main facts of the legend of the Phoenix remain intact, even though the myth has been adulterated.

According to the legend, the Phoenix is a supernatural creature that has an incredibly long 36___________, stretching to at least a thousand years. It cannot fall sick or get injured at any point in its lifetime. However, some believe that it does get affected by disease or drought, which leads it to prematurely enter the next phase of its life.

Once that time is over, the bird builds its own funeral pyre. The traditional story goes that the phoenix ignites himself, burns to ash, and then rises again from the ashes to live another thousand years. This triumph over adversity has caused the bird to become the 37___________ or symbol of many groups and organizations. Once the bird is born from ashes, the cycle begins anew.

Another version of the story is that before the fire consumes the bird, it lays an egg, which hatches a new phoenix. This phoenix will live to be a thousand years old before having an 38___________ in the same method. There is no way of ascertaining which version of the story is true, but all of them express the same theme: the triumph over adversity.

Leisure Activities in Japan

The use of leisure time has become an ever greater focus of attention in Japan, as a result of higher 32___________, expanding leisure time and a growing interest in nature. This trend is reflected in the increasing popularity of sports and recreational activities. Examples of recently developed leisure activities include boating, yachting and marine sports on Lake Inawashiro and off the Pacific Coast, paragliding and family auto-camping in the mountains of the Aizu region.

Japanese 33___________ nature, combined with extensive leisure facilities, attracts sports and leisure-minded people all year round. There are three national parks in Kyushu providing excellent opportunities for sports and leisure activities. A number of golf 34___________ take full advantage of extensive land areas and superb natural settings. Each year this region sees a rise 35___________ the number of ski resorts, featuring resort hotels and other facilities.

Kyushu is upgrading and enlarging its high-quality resort facilities to meet the demand 37___________ increased leisure opportunities, while at the same time giving full consideration to nature preservation. It is hoped that this rapid development can be 38___________ in the future.

How Does Wind Power Really Work?

Wind power is going to be essential to our planet in the near future. But do you really know how wind power works? It looks easy but there are several components involved 32___________ generating wind power. This type of power can not only save us a good 33___________ of money on our utility bills, but it will also play an important role in saving our planet.

For many of us, wind just looks invisible and does not actually have any properties but in 34___________, air is a fluid that contains particles constructed of gas. We can turn these gas particles into power because as the wind gusts, kinetic energy is created, which then can be harnessed and changed over into power.

Having access to wind is very essential for this operation to work but another indispensable ingredient is the blades that are used. Their design is very 35___________ to the effectiveness of the turbine. The other important component is simply the size of the blade. The bigger the blade is, the more energy is seized and more power can be created for us in the form of electricity.

Much also depends 36___________ where you live to figure out the right blade size. In regions with low wind levels, small blades work better because more wind is required to push the larger turbine blades. In an area that is very windy, it is much better to use large blades in 37___________ to use all of the wind available.

This gives you the fundamental principles of how electricity is produced from the wind. Today is a fantastic time to do as much 38___________ as you can about wind power so you will be able to make educated decisions in the future.

The Benefits of Modern Technology

Modern technology has brought about enormous improvements in communications and yet many people are still very worried 32___________ using the latest computer technology. I am often surprised to meet people who still don’t know what the ‘e’ in e-mail stands for and they are too 33___________ to ask. They assume you have to be skilled 34___________ computers to send a message via e-mail but in fact it is the simplest thing in the world.

It is also cheaper to send an e-mail message than to send an ordinary letter or a ‘snail’ message which also takes much longer. An e-mail message is only 35___________ more expensive than a local telephone call to send; on top of the call itself you also have to pay a fee to your ‘server’. If you send a letter by 36___________ mail it will take a couple of days to get there whereas an e-mail will not take longer than a few seconds.

Once you become 37___________ to using the system you will be amazed at how much more 38___________ it is than other means of communication. Of course, before you have access to e-mail, you will need a fairly powerful computer, which can be quite expensive.

Trees Are a Threat

The mountain town of Canton is surrounded by thick underbrush and pine trees. Because of six years of drought, these plants are a major fire hazard. Thousands of trees and tons of underbrush are going to be removed over the next five years 32___________ a minimum cost of $3 million. The brush will be removed first and only then will the trees be toppled and removed. A cleared nonflammable area will then safely surround the town. A recent fire burned 4,000 acres and destroyed 11 homes in nearby Hamilton. The fire was raging toward Canton, but a sudden rainstorm 33___________ it out. Residents know that they won’t get lucky twice, so they are looking 34___________ to this massive clearing operation, because it will help their town survive a future inferno. ‘But there are two problems, ’ said one resident. ‘All the extra trucks are going to make traffic pretty bad. Once the area is cleared, we have to make 35___________ dirt bikers don’t try to make the cleared area their personal playground.’ Ninety percent of the cutting and clearing will be paid with federal funds. Unfortunately, if the trees are on private 36___________ , they must be paid for by the residents themselves. Prices can range as high as$1,000 to cut and remove one tree. Officials say that residents can apply 37___________ state and federal loans if necessary.

‘Well, what good does that do me?’ asked Thelma, a 65-year-old widow. ‘I’m living on social security and I’ve got four trees. The government’s not going to loan me money as they know there’s no way I can pay it 38___________ . So what am I supposed to do? These planners with all their big ideas ought to think of the poor people.’

Squirrel

It was when Squirrel Nutkin appeared at the October Board meeting that Mr. Ramsay began to 32___________ his reputation for eccentricity. And that’s putting it 33___________. To be fair, there were people who said at the time that there was nothing wrong in wearing a glove puppet to a Board meeting. However, there were more who disagreed, and several who thought that Mr. Ramsay was off his chump. The matter was hotly disputed in the company’s offices, on the shop floor and in the canteen.

It happened during Mr. Giles’s monthly overlong summary of the company’s financial position. Two factors were making the prospects for Ramsay & Co look bleak.

The first of these factors spoke for itself. There were simply fewer items of hosiery being sold. Whether this was due to the long hot summer combined with the undoubted increase 34___________ the uptake of feminine trousers, or it was a sign of continued recession was not for him to say. Ramsay & Co simply had to 35___________ the facts, whether they liked them or not, and accept what the market was telling them. Reality didn’t always turn 36___________ the way people wanted it to.

The second factor, however, was where they could do something about. Ramsay & Co’s costs were inordinately high compared to those of its competitors, who had been cutting back on staff over the last five years, reducing their workforce to one-fifth of its previous level. It was high 37___________ that Ramsay & Co got itself into a similar position.

None of the Board members was surprised at what Mr. Giles had to say. He had, after all, said it all before, many times, over the past several months. Mr. Ramsay had, until now, always stubbornly resisted him. This time, though, what happened was different from all the previous occasions. Mr. Ramsay had never before produced a glove puppet from underneath the table. He had never had a squirrel sitting on his left hand during a presentation.

The only two pairs of eyes in the room focused on Mr. Giles during his summation of the company’s position were those of Mr. Ramsay and the squirrel, both of whom were shaking their heads very slightly. The other Board members were sitting shocked with their mouths wide open and were 38___________ at the puppet.

Dolphin Cove

The day is hot and humid; uncomfortable, so we move to sit in a shaded area. Waiting for the coach to pick us 32___________, I read my book but unfortunately I feel unwell. Hoping that it will pass before we arrive 33___________ dolphin cove I read to take my mind elsewhere.

Rebecca sits next to her Dad on the journey. A young couple sit close by and chat to us along the way. I notice how much the boy reminds me of my nephew, just an older version of him. Having got off the coach, we 34___________ off towards the beach and Rebecca enjoys a paddle in the sea.

A while later it is time for me to join my group at the edge of the cove. Rebecca is reluctant to let me go, becoming miserable and wanting to go home. She is upset at the 35___________ of having to wait.

As for me, I can’t wait to get into the water. Swimming over to the far side, refreshing cool water washes over me. Two dolphins appear in the cove weaving through the water. We form a line and they come up in front of us balancing on their tails, fins flapping. It’s amazing being so close. I am overwhelmed, smiling and laughing at the performance they are displaying for us. Now it’s my 36___________ to swim. I latch my hands on to their fins feeling their strength as they pull me with force through the water, 37___________ on a great ride with intensity.

To experience this was something I only dreamt of and never in my wildest dreams did I think it would become a fantastic opportunity. I feel so honoured to be with these magnificent creatures in the sea. We are all asked if we would like to participate in the next encounter of being lifted by our feet out of the water. Definitely, I'll give that a 38___________! (A phenomenal privilege: an hour of my life which I will never forget.)

Jake was walking home from school. It was a sunny autumn day. He’d usually stamp on the 32___________ of leaves on the footpath to hear them crunch under his shoes. But today he ignored them. He was busy planning his project.

He was used to being home alone. That was because, three years ago, his dad had decided to go back to university, which meant his mum had had to go back to working 33___________. She did a lot of evening shifts because the money was better.

Jake walked up the stairs onto the veranda and stuck his hand in his pocket for the key but it wasn’t there! Frantically, he tried the front door, knowing it would be locked, then turned around and hurried back up the footpath to see if he could find his key. He walked up the road for two blocks, 34___________ the pavement.

It was no 35___________ looking for it; he could have dropped it anywhere. He turned around and went home. He checked his watch. It was four o’clock and his dad would be back by seven. Jake supposed he could read the book he’d borrowed 36___________ the school library for his project. The book was really good with wonderful photos of soldiers.

An hour later he finished the book and felt like having a 37___________ but it didn’t feel right to sleep with nothing over you. So he covered his chest with the foot mat and the book was his pillow. When he woke up, the Miller sisters were standing over him, staring.

‘Why are you lying on the veranda with a foot mat over you?’ said Adele.
