The House At The Top Of The Tree

There’s a house at the top of a tree
There’s a house at the top of a tree
In the house there’s a room
In the room there’s a chair
And sitting in the chair is you
There’s a nose at the end of a snout
Of a dog with his head out the window
Of a car that’s driving away from the tree
And at the top of a tree there’s a house
And in the house there’s a room and in the room
There’s a chair and in the chair is you
There’s a plan to eat the house
In the mind of a mouse in the woods
And the mouse in the woods has a smell that’s detected
By the nose at the end of a snout of a dog
And the dog has his head out the window of a car
And the car is driving away from the tree
And at the top of a tree there’s a house
And in the house there’s a room and in the room
There’s a chair and in the chair is you
There are no more potato chips left
In the empty bag in your hand
And the crumpling sound of the empty bag
Makes the mice get mad
And when the mice get mad
It leads to a plan to eat the house
And the plan’s in the mind of the mouse in the woods
And the mouse in the woods has a smell that’s detected
By the nose at the end of a snout of a dog
And the dog has his head out the window of a car
And the car is driving away from the tree
And at the top of a tree there’s a house
And in the house there’s a room and in the room
There’s a chair and in the chair is you
And the reason there are no more chips
In the empty bag in your hand
Is that the crumpling sound of the empty bag
Makes the mice get mad
Which leads to a plan
To eat the house
But just in time
The dog arrives
To give to the mouse
The potato chips
That you took from the bag
And gave to the dog
To deliver to the mouse
So the mouse would not eat you

Our mental abilities begin to deteriorate to 27 years, the age that marks the onset of old age, says research in the United States. Scientists at the University of Virginia found that the height of our mental power occurs at 22 years and five years after the decline began. This includes the reduction of reasoning, spatial visualization and the speed of thought. According to research published in Neurobiology of Aging, the results show that therapies to halt or reverse the aging process should begin much earlier. “These results show that some aspects of cognitive impairment related to age began, and educated in healthy adults, when they are in their 20s and 30s,” says Professor Timothy Salthouse, who led the study. Professor Salthouse conducted its investigation over 7 years with 2,000 healthy adults between 18 and 60 years. To discuss their mental agility, participants had to solve problems and puzzles, remembering words and details of stories and identify patterns in words and symbols. These are the same tests used by doctors today to identify signs of dementia. As the scientist in nine of the 12 tests, the average age at which the best performance was achieved for 22 years. And the first time I began to detect a marked deterioration in the capabilities of 27 years was evidence of mental alertness, reasoning ability and resolution of visual puzzles. The researchers also discovered that other factors such as memory, remain intact until 37 years on average. At this age, the accumulated knowledge-based capabilities such as performance on tests of vocabulary or general information, increase until the individual turns 60. As experts point out, this study shows that the natural deterioration of some of our mental abilities begins much earlier than thought. And that could provide new information for the study of neurodegenerative diseases. “If we understand more about how a healthy brain is impaired can understand what happens in diseases like Alzheimer’s,” said Rebecca Wood, of the Alzheimer’s Research Fund. “Alzheimer’s disease is a natural consequence of aging, is a physical illness that kills nerve cells and also affects tens of thousands of people under 65 years.” “So we urgently need more research to be able to offer some hope to the millions of people living with this disease,” said the expert. Alzheimer’s disease remains incurable, and it is estimated that between 2 and 5 % of people over 65 years and 20 % of those over 85 suffer from the disease.

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! -

Even though the sound of it
Is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough
You'll always sound precocious

Because I was afraid to speak
When I was just a lassy
My father gave me nose a tweak
And told me I was sassy
But then one day I learned a word
That saved me aching nose
The biggest word I ever heard
And this is how it goes:

Oh, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it
Is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough
You'll always sound precocious

So when the cat has got your tongue
There's no need for dismay
Just summon up this word
And then you've got a lot to say
But better use it carefully
Or it can change your life
One night I said it to me guy
And now I am his wife!

She's supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
No matter how you use this word

British and American English

These two varieties of English have both changed a good deal in the last three hundred or so, and naturally they have not developed in exactly the same way. however, the differences between them are not very great. Most British and American speakers can understand each other quite easily though pronunciation can cause a few problems), and the written language is very similar indeed in the two countries. the main differences are follows
  • Americans use a simple past tense in some cases where British people use a present perfect He just went home US - He's just gone home GB
  • Americans use the verb have a little differently from British people in certain cases Do you have a problem? US - Have you got a problem? GB
  • Americans sometimes use his where the British say one's . One should try to get to know his neighbors US - ....to know one's neighbours GB
  • British speakers often say I have done, I can do, in cases where Americanswould just say I have, I can

Rudyard Kipling

Kipling was born in Bombay on December 30th 1865, son of John Lockwood Kipling, an artist and teacher of architectural sculpture. His mother was one of the talented and beautiful Macdonald sisters. A prolific writer, he achieved fame quickly. Kipling was the poet of the British Empire and its yeoman, the common soldier, whom he glorified in his collections of short stories with roughly and affectionately drawn soldier portraits. In 1894 appeared his Jungle Book, which became a children's classic all over the world. Kim (1901), the story of Kimball O'Hara and his adventures in the Himalayas, is perhaps his most felicitous work. During the First World War Kipling wrote some propaganda books. His collected poems appeared in 1933. Kipling was the recipient of many honorary degrees and other awards. In 1926 he received the Gold Medal of the Royal Society of Literature, which only Scott, Meredith, and Hardy had been awarded before him. Kipling was a friend of Cecil Rhodes, of Lord Milner, and of Dr Jameson, on whose qualities the poem "If..." (below) is said to have been based. Rudyard Kipling died on January 18, 1936.

Que el camino salga a tu encuentro
Que el viento siempre esté detrás de ti
Y la lluvia caiga suave sobre tus campos.
Y hasta que nos volvamos a encontrar,
Que Dios te sostenga con el puño de Su mano.
Que vivas por el tiempo que tú quieras,
Y que nunca quieras vivir tanto como vives.
Recuerda siempre olvidar las cosas que te entristecieron.
Pero nunca te olvides de recordar las cosas que te alegraron.
Recuerda siempre olvidar a los amigos que resultaron falsos.
Pero nunca olvides recordar a aquellos que permanecieron contigo.
Recuerda siempre olvidar los problemas que ya pasaron
Pero nunca olvides recordar las bendiciones de cada día.
Que el día más triste de tu futuro no sea peor que el día más feliz de tu pasado.
Que nunca se te venga el techo encima
Y que los amigos reunidos debajo de él, nunca se vayan.
Que siempre tengas palabras cálidas en un frío anochecer,
Una luna llena en una noche oscura,
Y que el camino siempre se abra a tu puerta.
Que haya una generación de hijos
En los hijos de tus hijos.
Que vivas cien años,
con un año extra para arrepentirte!
Que el Señor te guarde en Su mano y nunca apriete mucho tu puño.
Que tus vecinos te respeten,
Los problemas te abandonen,
Los ángeles te protejan,
Y que el cielo te acoja,
Que la fortuna de las colinas Irlandesas te abracen.
Que las Bendiciones de San Patricio te contemplen.
Que tus bolsillos estén pesados y tu corazón ligero,
Que la buena suerte te persiga,
Y cada día y cada noche.
Muros contra el viento,
Y un techo para la lluvia,
Y bebidas junto a la fogata -Risas para consolarte
Y aquellos a quienes amas cerca de ti,
Y todo lo que tu corazón desee!
Que Dios esté contigo y te bendiga,
Que veas a los hijos de tus hijos,
Que el infortunio sea pobre, rico en bendiciones.
Que no conozcas nada más que la felicidad
Desde este día en adelante.
Que Dios te conceda muchos años de vida,
De seguro Él sabe que la tierra no tiene suficientes ángeles

Great Britain
The geographical term Great Britain was used to distinguish the largest of the British Isles from Brittany, or Little Britain. When James I succeeded Elizabeth in 1603 he proposed that the union of the crowns should be followed by a governmental union and suggested the name Great Britain. Though the English Parliament could not be brought to agree,
James adopted the name by proclamation and used it on his coinage. It was given statutory authority by the Act of Union with Scotland in 1707. This usage lasted until the Act of
Union with Ireland in 1801, which substituted the term ‘United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland’.
