The Toughest Time of My Life:
“I had the toughest time of my life. First, I got angina pectoris and then arteriosclerosis. Just as I was recovering from these, I got tuberculosis, double pneumonia and phthisis. Then they gave me hypodermics. Appendicitis was followed by tonsillectomy.

Grammar Lesson: Is it “Complete”, “Finished” or “Completely Finished”?
No English dictionary has been able to adequately explain the difference between these two words – “Complete” and “Finished”.

He won a trip around the world and a case of 25-year old Scotch!

She tried walking in the shallow part of the river, and she even tried grabbing onto a branch that stretched half way across the river to try to swing to the other side.
No matter how hard she tried she couldn’t get across.
After many failed attempts, she finally felt like giving up.
Yet, at the last moment, she saw a person walking by and decided to follow her — across the bridge.
