    Chapayevsk's Urban Legend
    Chapayevsk's Urban Legend Urban legends thrive on people’s deepest fears – that our safe world can crack at any moment and a madman will change our lives forever. That alone is enough to give anyone some second thoughts about our everyday routine.

    A Good Samaritan
    A Good Samaritan Not long ago, I told you about the dog, Ricky, that had been awarded a medal for his work in detecting mines during WWII. I had been reminded of that incident by my very good friends in the Netherlands, George and Truus. This time I would like another good friend, Elena, who lives in Lugansk, Ukraine, to tell you (more or less in her own words) a true story about another dog.

    Happy Birthday, Mr. King!
    Happy Birthday, Mr. King! Stephen King was born on September 21, 1947 in Portland (USA). The Kings were the typical family until one night when Stephen’s father, Donald, said he was stepping out for cigarettes and was never heard from again. Ruth, Stephen’s mother, raised King and his adopted older brother David by herself, sometimes under great financial strain. They traveled throughout many states over several years, finally moving back to Durham, Maine, in 1958.

    British poetry today
    Unfortunately, we know almost nothing about it: the books by poets from England, Scotland or Wales are rare guests on the shelves of our shops or libraries. However, it doesn't mean that poetry is no longer alive. To prove this fact, the British Council set up long-term project, the aim of which is to publish the anthology of the modern British poetry in Russia next year. As the result of the poetry translation competition (that had been held on the
    www.britishcouncil.ru in 2005) the group of translators from different regions of our country started immense work.

    The Old Badger (2)
    Once upon a time ...” began Father, because that is how all the best stories are supposed to start – nobody knows why, but it is, “... there was an Old Badger. He was very old at the time this story starts and even older by the time it finishes.”

    The Old Badger
    Tell us a story, Dad,” pleaded Brock.
    “Yes, Dad, tell us a story,” echoed his sister.
    All children everywhere love stories, don’t they? Especially stories told them by their Dads. It doesn’t really matter very much whether they have heard them before, but new ones are best.

    The Scotsman and the London Judge’s Daughter
    Onсе a young Scotsman fell in love with a lady he saw in a dream. He told his father about her.

    Two American Folk-Tales
    There are many American folk-tales which make fun of a fellow called Pat. But sometimes Pat makes fun of those who try to make fun of him.

    Mrs. Twiddle’s Gold
    There was once an old woman called Mrs. Twiddle, whose kitchen chimney needed sweeping. She poked her brush up, and ten pieces of gold came down with the soot. How surprised and glad Mrs. Twiddle was!

    No Ordinary Blanket
    He bought it at the Sav-On Drugstore for $4.97.

    It was an unassuming wool blanket – red tartan plaid with fringe on each end. When new, it was starchy and its colors vivid; but after nearly twenty years of service, the colors were faded and so threadbare in places you could see right through it. I thought the blanket itchy and hot, but Dad stubbornly defended its merits.

    Flowers and Vegetables
    This is one of the chapters of the new book by Mr David Wright “Tales from the English Garden”

    There was one tussle that constantly recurred in and about Hodge’s garden. This was between Hodge and Mrs Hodge – you can guess who usually came out best in the arguments! Hodge said that it was unfair to threaten him with the withdrawal of his Sunday dinner privileges and Mrs Hodge said that she wouldn’t have to if he just did as he was told. At that point, Hodge would go out into his garden muttering “Women!” under his breath – but not until he was out of earshot3 of Mrs Hodge.

    Special Delivery
    This is an extract from the first chapter of a new book by David A. Wright. The main character of the book, Peter, the pilot, the Special Messenger, is given an assignment which he has to fulfil “at all costs”. The story narrates of Peter`s adventures.

    Corrina Jayne Hyde Corrina Jayne Hyde was born in England and moved to Oklahoma (USA) when she was three years old. She is currently employed by Choctaw Nation Head Start, where she enjoys the role of Supervisor and Lead Teacher. And she chooses on occasion to bring her work home with her! Not being able to have children of her own, she did not let her dream of being a “Kool-aid” mom go unfulfilled. Many children enjoy dressing up and have tea parties at “Ms. Cory’s.”
