Ginger, the Good Medicine in Your Kitchen
You can find ginger in the kitchen or in Grandma’s medicine boxes easily.
Many children don’t like it, because it tastes very strange. But now, English doctors have found that ginger is a very good medicine for colds, headaches and cancer. And they say that we can eat a little ginger every day.
In some countries, like China and India (印度), people use ginger to make sweets and tea. It makes the ginger taste better.
So the next time you catch a cold, try some ginger sweets or a cup of ginger tea.

When Ice Cream Flavors Die ...
Where do ice cream flavors go to die? You may think this question is funny, but there is a cemetery for ice cream flavors, in Vermont, USA (美国佛蒙特州).
Vermont is famous for its Ben&Jerry’s Ice Cream. Many people like to visit its factory because it has a cemetery for ice cream flavors.
There are new ice cream flavors every year, and the old flavors will “die.” So Ben&Jerry’s built a cemetery for them.

“Will you hurry up, please,” shouted Beans the rooster. “I can’t help it,” Poke the pig answered. His pink skin was covered with thick brown mud.
“If you washed yourself now and then, you could walk a lot quicker,” Beans said. “You have so much mud all over you. I can’t even see your tail!”
“Why are you in such a hurry?” Poke asked. “Farmer Roy puts plenty of food out on Tuesdays.”
“You’re right,” Beans smiled. He slowed down and the two friends walked side by side.
