A. Choose the best answer (根据短文内容，选择最恰当的答案): (12分)
Thanksgiving is the day when Americans express thanks for all the good that has happened during the past year. Many Americans attend special church services to offer prayers of Thanksgiving to God. Others watch large parades (游行) in such cities as New York or Philadelphia. And many others watch football games on television or sports stadiums.
But the most common way Americans celebrate the day is by having a Thanksgiving dinner. Friends and family gather together to spend the day enjoying a long dinner and conversation. There is usually a turkey with a bread mixture cooked inside for the traditional meal. Other traditional Thanksgiving foods served with a turkey are sweet potatoes, cranberries and pumpkin pies. Stores sell more food at Thanksgiving than at any other time of the year. For many families, it is the only time of the year when all family members can get together. Thanksgiving is also a time when Americans share what they have with people who do not have as much. All across America, thousands of religions ( 宗教的)and service organizations provide Thanksgiving meals for old people, the homeless and the poor. Some people spend part of the day helping to prepare and serve the meals. Everyone expresses thanks for what they have, so Thanksgiving has come to mean a time of family reunion, a time to give thanks for the richness of the past year, as well as a time to share what people have.
Thanksgiving is held every year, on the fourth Thursday of November. The month of November is autumn in the United States and other countries of the northern hemisphere (半球), a season when crops are gathered, or harvested. The thanksgiving celebration began as a harvest festival by the first European settlers (移居者)in America.
Harvest festivals are an ancient custom. The ancient Greeks and Romans held festivals to give thanks to their gods for the crops they had harvested. The custom continued in Europe. So when the first European settlers came to America — they brought with them the custom of giving thanks for a rich harvest. Tradition tells us that the first Thanksgiving in America was celebrated in 1621 by early Pilgrim settlers from England.
( ) 74. The most common way for Americans to celebrate Thanksgiving Day is by________.
A) watching large parades in large cities B) having a thanksgiving dinner D) attending special church services A) a turkey with a bread mixture C) sweet potatoes B) a turkey with mushrooms D) cranberries and pumpkin pies C) watching football games ( ) 75.

Frank was one day walking with his mother when they came to a pretty garden. Frank looked in and saw that it had clean gravel walks (沙砾路), and beds of beautiful flowers all in bloom.
He called to his mother, and said, "Mother, come and 80 this pretty garden. I wish I might open the gate and walk in."
The gardener, being near, heard what Frank said, and kindly invited him and his mother to come into the 81 . Frank's mother thanked the man. Turning to her son, she said, "Frank, if I take you to walk in this garden, you must take care not to meddle (擅自摸弄) with anything in it." Frank walked along the neat gravel paths. He looked at everything, but touched 82 that he saw. He did not tread (踩) on any of the borders, and was careful that his clothes should not brush the tops of the flowers in order not to break them. The gardener was 83 Frank because he was so careful not to do mischief 恶作剧). He showed him the seeds and told him the name of many of the flowers and plants.
While Frank was admiring the beauty of a flower, a boy came to the gate. When he found it locked, he shook it 84 . but still it would not open. Then he said, "Let me in, let me in, won't you let me in this garden?" "No, indeed," said the gardener, "I will not let you in for when I let you in yesterday, you meddled with my flowers and pulled some of my rare fruit. I do not choose to let a boy into my garden who meddles with the plants." The boy looked ashamed and went slowly away. Frank saw and felt how 85 a boy may be by not meddling with what does not belong to him. He and his mother then continued their walk in the garden and enjoyed their day. Before they left, the gardener gave each of them some pretty flowers.

D. Answer the questions （根据短文内容回答下列问题): (共 12分)
Erin and her best friend Amy flew into San Diego (圣地亚哥) last week. They are both in their mid-20s, and both are nurses who live in Georgia. It was their first visit to California, and they were excited.
They visited San Diego's world-famous zoo and fell in love with the giant pandas. "They are so cute," Erin said. Then they drove north to La Jolla so that they could glide off the cliffs 100 feet above the beach. That was scary (容易受惊的), exciting, fun and expensive.
After visiting San Diego, they headed north to Los Angeles. They saw the Hollywood sign and visited many places in Hollywood and Beverly Hills. They hoped they would see lots of actors and actors' homes. If they got lucky, they would get some autographs (亲笔签名) and maybe even some photographs of them standing next to a movie star.
7 / 11
But they were disappointed. A minivan took them on a tour past actors' homes, but no actors were outside their homes. The homes themselves were often hidden by tall gates, fences, walls, hedges or trees. Later, however, Erin and Amy were able to put their hands and feet into the handprints and footprints of movie stars at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood.
They went to Venice boardwalk (木板路) just south of the Santa Monica pier because the boardwalk is famous for its muscle beach, weird characters and paddle tennis. The boardwalk is one of the best places in California for people-watching. The girls liked talking to the colorful locals.
After Venice, they went sunbathing on the beach just north of the Venice pier. They even got to hang out with some real California surfers. The surfers tried to teach them how to ride a board in the water. That was difficult but fun. They took plenty of pictures to show their friends back home.
Erin and Amy drove to Burbank the next day to watch the taping （磁带录音）of a talk show, but the line was too long, so they went to a mall instead and had a great time shopping. They flew back to Georgia with souvenirs, photos, and wonderful memories. "But next time," said Amy, "we're not leaving until we see some real live actors!"
93. Who did Erin go to San Diego, California with last week?
94. How was the visit of the cliffs above the beach in La Jolla?
95. Did Erin and her friend see any movie stars in Hollywood?
96. What did they do in Venice boardwalk?
97. Why did Erin and her friend go to a mall instead of watching the taping of a talk show?
98. What do you think of Erin's trip to California?

C. A man walked into Joe's cafe on a Saturday. He asked for three ice creams. Joe thought this was a bit strange, because the man was alone. Joe didn't want to be rude, so he didn't ask any questions. He made the ice creams for the man and took the man's money. The man sat at a table outside. Joe watched from far away. The man took one bite from one ice cream, then took one bite from the second ice cream, then took a bite from the third ice cream. He continued eating this way until all of the ice creams were gone. Then the man left Joe's cafe. The next Saturday the man returned. "Three ice creams, please," he said to Joe.
"You know," said Joe, "you don't need to order three ice creams at a time. They melt quickly. I can bring you the second one when you finish the first." "No, you don't understand," the man said. "1 have two brothers. When we were young, we enjoyed eating ice creams together. Now, one of my brothers lives in Canada. My other brother lives in Australia. But every Saturday, we each go to an ice cream shop. We each have three ice creams. We feel as if we are eating ice creams together. Then we don't feel so lonely."
"What a lovely story," Joe said. "Here are youi three ice creams."

M: I feel fine. In fact, I've never felt better. Furthermore, some of my old clothes would fit me if I lost about 40 pounds,
W: How long will that take you?

W: Do you plan to eat nothing but salads for 6 months?

I'm very happy to tell you how I will spend the coming summer vacation.
I will start the vacation at the beginning of July and it will last about two months. I will do many things to relax myself, such as going swimming, surfing the Internet and watching TV. I will go to a summer school for two weeks to study English. But what I want to do most is traveling with my parents. We have been to many places. This summer, we are going to Australia. I'm sure we'll have a good time.
I wish to visit you in Canada one day.
