An English tongue twister "Betty Botter bought some butter..."


=Spoiler написал(а):



Бетти Боттер

Купила Бетти Боттер немного масла,
Но масло оказалось горьким, сказала она
Если я добавлю его в свое тесто,
Это придаст моему тесту горчинку.
Но немного лучшего масла
Точно сделает мое тесто лучше.
Итак, она купила кусочек масла.
Лучшего, чем ее горькое масло,
И добавила его в свое тесто,
И тесто не стало горчить.
Так что лучше Бетти Боттер и придумать не могла,
Как купить кусочек хорошего масла.
Потому что хорошее масло
Сделало ее горькое тесто лучше!

A classic tongue twister by anyother name is 'Betty bought some butter...' Let's see how you get those batters, bitters and butters right! Let's try this: Betty Botter Bought Some Butter

Betty Botter bought some butter,
But, she said, the butter’s bitter.
If I put it in my batter,
It will make my batter bitter.

But a bit of better butter
Is sure to make my batter better.

So she bought a bit of butter
Better than her bitter butter,
And she put it in her batter
And the batter was not bitter.

So ’twas better Betty Botter
Bought a bit of better butter.
‘Cause a bit of better butter
Made her bitter batter better.

Once the Wind and the Sun had an argument. “I am stronger than you,” said the Wind. “No, you are not,” said the Sun. Just at that moment they saw a traveller walking across the road.

He was wrapped in a shawl. The Sun and the Wind agreed that whoever could separate the traveller from his shawl was stronger.
The Wind took the first turn. He blew with all his might to tear the traveller’s shawl from his shoulders. But the harder he blew, the tighter the traveller gripped the shawl to his body.

The struggle went on till the Wind’s turn was over.

Now it was the Sun’s turn. The Sun smiled warmly. The traveller felt the warmth of the
smiling Sun. Soon he let the shawl fall open. The Sun’s smile grew warmer and warmer... hotter and hotter. Now the traveller no longer needed his shawl. He took it off and dropped it on the ground. The Sun was declared stronger than the Wind.

Moral: Brute force can’t achieve what a gentle smile can.



November, radiate from within


November has crept in again on the heels of Halloween. No other seasonal shift is quite as abrupt as this one. October and November are true seasonal ninjas. November is just lying in wait while everyone revels in the deafening crescendo of Octoberness on it's final day, Halloween. And then we're all bewildered when the next morning October is no where to be found.

It's time to bake pies! And roast carrots! And simmer soups! Forget October, that is so yesterday! You're now fully immersed in a new season, get used to it!

Our new calendar girl is a true beacon of Novemberness through and through. She radiates warmth from within in this season of cold and darkness. November is a time of coming together. Blending families and friends over a tapestry of shared recipes and recounted stories that have ripened with age.

She wears a ball skirt of tartan plaid, an homage to her father's Scottish heritage. She inherited his imperviousness to the cold and his love of wearing skirts.

And on her ears, giant earrings inherited from her mother. She also inherited her beautiful skin tone and her recipe for 72 hour simmered mole sauce.

She tends a garden year round, naming each carrot, nurturing each cabbage. She knows that love makes things grow and that the best way to warm cold hands is by filling them with a warm bowl of soup.

She invites you to stop by for dinner, served at a wonderful old table set beside an open hearth, spread with a hodgepodge of her grandmother's china patterns and filled with ancestral recipes.

Just please be sure to give her three days notice if you want to try the mole sauce!






Jane Austen

Jane Austen, (born December 16, 1775, Steventon, Hampshire, England—died July 18, 1817, Winchester, Hampshire), English writer who first gave the novel its distinctly modern character through her treatment of ordinary people in everyday life.

"Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery." - Jane Austenhttps://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/c8/Jane_Austen_signature_from_her_will.svg/240px-Jane_Austen_signature_from_her_will.svg.png

Jane Austen, the world renowned English author, completed just six works during her time and yet manages to command a legion of fans around the world. Her timeless stories have been turned into a plethora of movies, television shows, and modern adaptations in addition to being translated into multiple languages to cross cultural boundaries. Today she remains as popular as ever and is revered as much as any literary figure in the history of the English language.

    vessel containing kerosine with a wick for burning to provide light. Such lamps were widely used from the 1860s, when kerosine first became plentiful, until the development of electric lighting. Compared with other oil lamps they were safe, efficient, and simple to operate. The kerosine fed the wick by capillary action alone. An adjustment knob, the only mechanism needed, controlled the lamp's brightness by raising or lowering the wick to vary the size of the flame. A glass chimney, which was used more widely and effectively on kerosine lamps than on any previous lamps, enhanced the steadiness, brightness, and cleanness of the flame. No inventor of the kerosine lamp can be named, but hundreds of persons filed patent applications for modifications. In 1865 the duplex burner, with two flat wicks set near each other to augment the heat and brilliance of their flames, was introduced. In Europe, Argand burners with cylindrical wicks were widely used.




The Queen goes to Balmoral every summer, and it is without a doubt one of her favourite places in the world. The 92-year-old monarch has been visiting her residence, Balmoral Castle, for years, with her granddaughter Princess Eugenie once saying the sovereign was most happy there. "Walks, picnics, dogs – a lot of dogs, there's always dogs – and people coming in and out all the time. It's a lovely base for Granny and Grandpa, for us to come and see them up there; where you just have room to breathe and run," Eugenie revealed during an appearance on ITV's Our Queen At Ninety. "It's the most beautiful place on earth," she added. "I think Granny is the most happy there. I think she really, really loves the Highlands."

Looks treacherous



October's the month
When the smallest breeze
Gives us a shower
Of autumn leaves.
Bonfires and pumpkins,
Leaves sailing down —
October is red
And golden and brown.




Witch on Halloween card

Halloween is a celebration on the night of October 31. It is most practiced in the United States and Canada. Children wear costumes and go to people's homes saying "Trick or treat!" to ask for candy (sweets in the UK) and people give it to them. The suggestion is: "Give me a treat or I will play a trick on you." People mainly dress up as ghosts, witches, or other scary things for Halloween.

For Christians it is the eve of All Hallows' Day, which begins the three-day observance of Allhallowtide. All Hallows' Eve is a Christianized feast influenced by Celtic harvest festivals, and pagan roots.


The pagan holiday Samhain, which the All Saints holy day replaced, was also known as the Day of the Dead. Many wiccans and modern pagans celebrate the Day of the Dead. This is a happy holiday (even though it celebrates death). It is the day that some believed the souls of dead people come back to Earth.

Many Lutheran churches celebrate a holiday on October 31 called the Reformation. This holiday celebrates the day that Martin Luther put The Ninety-Five Theses on a church door.


Children in costumes

During Halloween some people wear a costume. People have worn costumes at Halloween for centuries. Wearing a costume may come from Celtic festivals of Samhain and Calan Gaeaf. It could also be from the Christian Allhallowtide.

Early costumes were usually scary. They were often supernatural beings or from folklore. In the 1930s costumes of characters from literature, radio, or movies became popular. Scary costumes are still popular.



The Origin of Halloweenhttp://s5.uploads.ru/t/G7ZXn.gif

Halloween is celebrated on the 31st of October. According to scientists it originated from an ancient Celtic festival called Samhain. People believed that on that day the dead could visit the living, as their spirits return to earth.


Traditionally on Halloween Night people wear scary or funny costumes of witches, vampires, pirates, fairies and ghosts. The most popular children's amusement on Halloween is "trick-or-treating".

They visit houses in their neighbourhood knocking on every door yelling the phrase: "Trick or treat!" Usually people give them sweets, fruit and candies, but if they don't, the children can play a low-down trick on them.

Another famous All Saints’ Night tradition is making Jack O'Lantern: people carve a scary smiling face on a pumpkin and put a candle inside.

Traditional Halloween symbols are bats, black cats (and white ones in England), spiders, ghosts and images of Jack O'Lantern.
Halloween is celebrated all over the world

Halloween is celebrated in many countries all over the world. In some of them (China, Mexico, Austria) the dead are honored and welcomed: people leave food and gifts for the souls of their deceased loved ones and keep lights in their houses burning all night.

In other countries, like Germany, people are afraid of ghosts and spirits. They even hide knives and other sharp objects in order not to be hurt by these visitors on Halloween night.


Возникновение праздника

Хэллоуин празднуется 31 октября. По мнению ученых, он происходит от древнего кельтского праздника Самайн. Люди верили, что в этот день мертвые могут посещать живых, так как их души возвращаются на землю.

Традиционно в ночь на Хэллоуин люди носят страшные или смешные костюмы ведьм, вампиров, пиратов, фей и привидений. Наиболее популярное развлечение у детей на Хэллоуин – выпрашивание сладостей (trick-or-treating).

Они посещают дома в округе, стуча в каждую дверь с криком: "Кошелек или жизнь!" Обычно люди дают им сладости, фрукты и конфеты, в противном случае дети могут сыграть с ними злую шутку.

Еще одно традиционное занятие на ночь всех святых – изготовление тыкв-светильников: люди вырезают страшное улыбающееся лицо на тыкве, внутрь которой затем ставят свечу.

Традиционные символы Хэллоуина – летучие мыши, черные кошки (и белые в Англии), пауки, призраки и изображения тыкв-светильников.
Празднование по всему миру

Хэллоуин празднуют во многих странах по всему миру. В таких странах, как Китай, Мексика и Австрия мертвых встречают с радостью и почтением: люди оставляют еду и подарки для душ своих умерших близких и не гасят свет всю ночь.

В других странах, например в Германии, люди боятся призраков и духов. Они даже прячут ножи и другие острые предметы на Хэллоуин, чтобы ночные гости не навредили им.




Halloween, the time of pumpkins, candies, ghosts, witches and much more, is annually celebrated on 31 October.

That's the night before All Saints Day. Its origins date back thousands of years to the Celtic festival of Samhaim or The Feast of the Sun, a most significant holiday of the Celtic year. This day marked the end of summer but also the season of darkness as well as the beginning of the New Year on 1 November.
Druids in Britain and Ireland would light bonfires, dance around them and offer sacrifices of animal and crops. The fires were also intended to give warmth to the households and to keep free from evil spirits. Through the ages these practices changed.

The Irish hollowed out turnips, placed a light inside to keep away the bad and stingy Jack. As the legend says, Jack was a man who tricked the devil and after Jack had died he was allowed neither in heaven nor in hell. With a lantern in his hand he began to search for a resting place on Earth. This was the original Jack-o-Lantern. Since Halloween came to America from Ireland (Scotland and Wales) people used pumpkins because they were bigger and easier to hollow out than turnips.

During the centuries the cultures have added their own elements to the way Halloween is celebrated.
Children love the custom of dressing-up in fancy costumes and going from door-to-door yelling ›Trick-or-Treat‹ . Adults instead join spooky parties which are nearly held all over the cities and villages on that special evening. A spooky decoration, games and ›frightening food‹ are nuts and bolts for a Halloween party your friends won't soon forget.



The Spiderman Of Paris

Mamoudou Gassama, a migrant from Mali, has become a household name in France. They call him the Spiderman of Paris.

Mamoudou never considered himself a hero. He grew up in Mali, an African country riddled with poverty, famine, and war.

Mamoudou sought to find a better life elsewhere. He crossed the Sahara desert with some fellow refugees. The journey was hard and risky, but the small group made it to Libya. Unfortunately, the authorities arrested them and sent them home to Mali.

Returning to the war and the horror of his country made Mamoudou more determined to flee. He hopped on a boat to the Italian coast. The trip could have cost him his life, but he survived.

Mamoudou arrived in Italy in 2014 as an illegal immigrant. He did not receive a warm welcome. Nevertheless, he managed to survive in the country like a ghost without any rights or protection for four years.

Aged 22, Mamoudou made the trip to France to be reunited with his brothers. Being with his own flesh and blood was a great comfort for Mamoudou. Even so, the life of an illegal immigrant is notoriously difficult in France.

One fateful day in Paris, he was walking along the street when he noticed a crowd staring up at a high-rise apartment in horror. Following their gaze, he saw a terrified toddler hanging on to the edge of a balcony for dear life.

The gathered French citizens were frozen. They feared the worst. Mamoudou knew the child wouldn’t be able to hold on until the emergency services arrived.

Being an illegal immigrant, Mamoudou knew it was better to keep his head down, but when he saw a child in danger, he didn’t hesitate to step forward.

Mamoudou began to climb the exterior of the building. The bystanders’ jaws dropped as he climbed several floors of balconies. He did so at an amazing pace. The crowd’s shock quickly turned to cheers of encouragement.

In 30 seconds, Mamoudou climbed four stories and pulled the youngster to safety. The crowd erupted in a wave of applause and tears of joy. In that instant Mamoudou, the illegal immigrant had become Mamoudou, the superhero.

Since that day Mamoudou has been granted French citizenship for his bravery. He has also found employment with the Paris firefighters.

Mamoudou remains humble about his heroic deeds. The man from Mali said, “I didn’t think about it. I climbed up and God helped me.”

The Dolphin With The Inspiring Tail

Life can be hard when you’re different. Just ask 7-year-old Braedon Monthony from New York. Shortly after he was born, the little boy was dealt a bad hand. He lost both of his legs due to a viral infection.

His disability hasn’t prevented Braedon from living life to the fullest. He still cycles, swims, and makes the most of every day.
Braedon’s difference is also the source of his strength and perseverance. His mother claims a dolphin called Winter inspired her son.
When Winter was only two months old her life changed forever. The marine mammal became entangled in a crab trap line. A fisherman found her stranded in Mosquito Lagoon, near Cape Canaveral, Florida.

She was cut free and transported to Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Her injuries were extensive. The line had cut off the blood supply to Winter’s tail. Most dolphins caught in crab trap lines die of their wounds. Against the odds, Winter survived. Yet despite exhaustive efforts, they could not save her tail.

Tails are the powerhouse of the dolphin. They propel the sea mammals through the water. If Winter couldn’t swim, how could she survive?
Country music singer, Jimmy Dean, once said, “I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”
In a nutshell, that’s exactly what Winter did. She learned to adapt to her circumstances and adopt a new swim pattern.
It was a long road to recovery for Winter, but she learned to swim and eat fish on her own.

Winter now lives at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium in Florida. Many visitors to the aquarium are inspired by her plight. She is a paragon of perseverance. Hollywood even made a film about her called The Dolphin Tale.

Braedon was one of the millions who saw the film. When he first laid eyes on the remarkable dolphin, he identified deeply with her. The little boy said to his mother “She’s just like me.”

Determined to meet his hero, the double-amputee sold lemonade to fund his trip to Florida. He raised $4,000, and his dream came true on March 28th, 2016. The meeting between Winter and Braedon was an emotional one.

Seeing in the flesh how Winter had adjusted to life without her tail motivated Braedon. He vowed then and there to work harder with his own prostheses. He told his mom, “If Winter can, so can I.”
Winter’s tale has given thousands of youngsters the courage to be different. She is a shining example of how strength of spirit can conquer all.
