At the age of 16, Julia left school and worked at a restaurant．For many years, she was only intere sted in making money．Then one day she had a serious car accident which changed her life．"I had a terrible car accident in August 1996．It took me 10 months to recover (康复) from the accident．During that time, I realized I wanted to find a more meaningful reason for being here in this world," said Julia．
As soon as she recovered, Julia gave up working at the restaurant and traveled to California．One day she found a big company wanted to cut down part of a forest．In the forest there were lots of redwood trees．One of the trees was more than 1,000 years old．
Then Julia learned a group called Our Earth was trying to save the redwood forest from the company．They decided to find someone to live in a redwood tree and hoped this would stop the company from cutting the trees down．Julia volunteered．
Julia lived in the tree for over two years without ever going down．It was cold and wet in a redwood tree．There were even very serious winter storms while Julia was in the tree．
Finally the company decided to protect the tree Julia lived in．They agreed never to cut down the big redwood tree or the trees around it．When Julia put her feet on the earth, she began to cry．But she continued to do other things to protect the environment．
1．Making money was the only thing Julia took an interest in when she worked at a restaurant．
2．After Julia recovered, she went to protect the environment at once．
3．Julia"s living in the redwood tree stopped the company from cutting the trees down．
4．The life in the tree for Julia was comfortable and enjoyable．

When thinking of Britain, many images come to mind: Big Ben, the Ferris wheel, red telephone boxes … and black Lo ndon taxis．The taxi has an important role in London．
But what is so special about a simple taxi? First of all, the shape and style are very different from those of ordinary taxis．It looks like a half-car and half-van (半厢式货车)．It has plenty of room in the bac k, which means it"s easy for disabled people to use．And the black color makes it stand out on the road．
Besides the style of the car, taxi drivers have an important part in your travel．They have to pass a taxi driving test, and in London it is very difficult．As there are many tourists in London, drivers must know many roads by memory!
Apart from driving you to your destination, it is normal for the driver and passenger to have a conversation．Getting a taxi involves (涉及) a social space which the driver and you share．The image of a London taxi driver is one that is friendly and talkative．Most times when I get a taxi, I ask how the driver is．Then we usually talk about sports or new events．
In China, I"ve noticed that taxi drivers are usually quieter．Sometimes I try to speak with them in Chinese．And when I do, they usually seem friendly and open to talk．It"s also a good situation to practice my Chinese!

Time is short and unfortunately we are all getting older．There may never be a better time than now to have a meaningful conversation with your parents．
You sometimes hear people say that they regret missed opportunities while their parents were alive and that there were things they wish they had spoken about．Make sure that you seize (抓住) the chance while you can．
1．Can you tell me a story about your parents or grandparents?
Family history is much more than a family tree and a photo album．It is also a collection of stories which become your family folklore (奇闻异事)．Be sure to have some stories about your parents and grandparents that you can pass on to your descendants (后代)．
2．Can you tell me a story about when you were a child?
Stories about their adventures, hopes, fears and relationships with friends and parents can be interesting and revealing (有启迪作用的)．Why not record them on video?
3．Can you tell me a story about me as a child?
Your parents will remember funny or embarrassing things about you as a little child．These will be handy when one day your child asks you the same question．
Your parents have a lifetime of experience and there are still things that you can learn from them．They may share something philosophical (有哲理的) or funny．It can pass into the family sayings．
Let"s talk about the good things in their lives: their achievements, joys and moments of pride．
