PRING IS HERE! I have been waiting for months to yell out these words with joy!

Unlike my hubby, I prefer warm weather to cold days. And the flowers that are blooming with different colours and scents are so cheerful. They always make you feel energetic and refreshed; you know you are living and it is the best feeling in the world! Many events are in September, there is Father's Day on the 7th, MidAutumn Festival is held on the 15th and School Holidays commence on the 17th. We have a lot of reasons and ways to celebrate. Kids can visit the parks again and parties will be held outdoors again. How great it is! To me another great thing about warm weather is that my kids can get rid of the heavy layers of clothes and fit into their light and colourful shirts, shorts and skirts. They look the cutest with those chubby arms and legs! Check out our competition in page 5! Doe, a deer a female dear; ray, a drop of golden sun………… Happy Spring! Kirill and Rachel

王宝强离婚的爆炸消息一出来,奥运会 好像提前结束了。而且关注度一直没有消 减,很多平时对娱乐圈分分合合习以为常的 人们,比如编者,都密切关注这件事情,编 者甚至也非常厌恶马蓉和宋喆,感觉如果住 在他们家附近,会忍不住朝他们扔鸡蛋。 有的人把马蓉和宋喆比喻为潘金莲和西 门庆,但其实《金瓶梅》里更形象的人物应 该是李瓶儿和西门庆。李瓶儿的原老公花子 虚是西门庆的好朋友,李瓶儿自从跟西门庆 勾搭上,经常鼓动花子虚出门办事,并且大 肆挥霍花子虚的钱为西门庆解围,最后花子 虚生病又气死了,而李瓶儿也如愿嫁入西门 家。但故事并没有在这里结束,李瓶儿在西 门家斗法斗不过潘金莲,结果孩子夭折,自 己也死于崩漏。而崩漏就是原因就是之前来 月经的时候西门庆却屡次与她求欢。只能说 善恶终有报。 故事虽然高于生活,也是来源于生活。 这样的经典故事,让人们对马蓉的人生有了 吃瓜子看好戏的期待。从出轨开始,到现在 各种新闻都是她转移财产,变卖房屋,许多 人对她恨得咬牙切齿。宝宝代表了草根一族 的奋斗,而且看得出他之前很爱马蓉,宝宝 丑吗?不算丑。宝宝爱她吗?很爱。宝宝努 编者随笔 力吗?很努力。马蓉究竟还要求什么?一个 字,贪。 在最初看对眼的时候,一个看到的是名和利,一个看到的是美和貌,所以一开始也 算是相称的。有的人不理解宝宝为什么一开始要找一个自喻为校花真正名声却不太好的 女人,但王宝强并没有错,男人都是追求美女,况且这个社会评判一个男人的成功,不 只是从外貌长相,社会风向就是看事业看收入,宝强去乡下找一个老婆,或许他妈妈觉 得心安了,可是他不会服气的。不能说他找美女是错的,毕竟找长得好看的另一半改变 下一代基因的可能性更高。马蓉自恃自己有几分美貌和青春,用此来换金屋银屋,也不 是只她独有的,何况宝强并不老,也不是二婚,马蓉比社会上很多女人选择的标准还要 高。 那么问题出在哪里呢?婚姻如人饮水,冷暖自知,每一天看上去平淡如水,但每一 秒其实都是在经营。宝强忙于事业,妻子独守空闺,难耐寂寞,红杏出墙,或许对方都 有一定的责任;何况爱与不爱,从来不是别人说了算。马蓉看着宝强不顺眼,虽然自己 大学也就是三流学校,但她就是看不起宝强的低学历,平时言谈可以猜想自然是有诸多 嫌弃诸多话不投机。想要好好经营婚姻的女人遇到这种情况会寻找磨合点,帮助老公一 起进步,可是马蓉不会,她本来就是一个喜欢浮华的女人,学识也不高,也没想过和宝 强好好过日子,初衷如此,你让她怎么去迁就去委屈自己? 自然名人的婚姻跟普通人不会一模一样,只是繁华散去,其实多的只是名和钱而 已。这两个东西之于婚姻家庭是基础,可是绝对不是关键。甚至有时候太多还会成为两 人感情的障碍。从一开始结婚就没有想着好好经营婚姻,只以赚取最大利益的人,最后 一定会是被伤得体无完肤的人。你看看宝强,他现在是最受伤的一个,一个男人最大的 耻辱要自己公布出来,成为街头巷尾的谈资,甚至还有人拍成短片!但是,这些伤痛终 将会过去,因为他不是婚姻中背叛的那一个。从来没有好好爱过另一个人的人,不会懂 得爱的痛,也不会享受爱的欣喜。就让马蓉和她的钱过下半辈子,看她多心安多幸福, 宋喆又能忍她多久。而宝宝,相信以后一定会幸福。

嫦 娥 奔 月 34

很早以 前,后羿射日立了 功,受到百姓的爱戴,不久 他娶了个美丽善良的妻子嫦娥。 一天,后羿遇到王母娘娘,便向 王母求得一包不死药。据说,服下此 药,能即刻升天成仙。然而,后羿舍不得撇 下妻子,只好暂时把不死药交给嫦娥保管。嫦 娥将药藏进百宝匣里,不料被蓬蒙看到了。 三天后,后羿出去打猎,心怀鬼胎的蓬蒙假 装生病,留了下来。等后羿走后不久,蓬蒙手持 宝剑闯入内宅后院,威逼嫦娥交出不死药。 嫦娥知道自己不是蓬蒙的对手,危急之时她 转身打开百宝匣,拿出不死药一口吞了下去。 嫦娥吞下药,身子立时飘离地面、冲出窗口, 向天上飞去。由于嫦娥牵挂着丈夫,便飞落到 离人间最近的月亮上成了仙。 百姓们闻知嫦娥奔月成仙的消息 后,纷纷在月下摆设香案,向善良的 嫦娥祈求吉祥平安。从此,中秋节 拜月的风俗在民间传开了。
