Years later, during her final illness, mother 29 different things for my sister and brother. “But the desk,” she’d said again, “it’s for Elizabeth.”
I never saw her 30 , never saw her cry. I knew she loved me; she showed it in action. But as a young girl, I wanted heart-to-heart talks between mother and daughter. 31 never happened. 32 a gulf opened between us. I was “too emotional”. But she lived “on the surface”.
As years passed I had my own family. I loved my mother and thanked her for our happy family. I 33 to her in careful words and asked her to let me know in any way she chose that she did forgive me.

For several years, Americans have enjoyed tele-shopping watching TV and buying things by phone. Now tele-shopping is starting in Europe. In a number of Europe countries, people can turn on their TVs and shop for clothes, jewelry, food, toys and many other things.
Tele-shopping is becoming popular in Sweden, for example. The biggest Swedish company sells different kinds of things on TV in 15 European countries, and in one year it made $ 100 million. In France there are two tele-shopping channels, and the French spend about $20 million a year to buy things through those channels.
In Germany, until last year tele-shopping was only possible on one channel for 1 hour every day. Then the government allowed more tele-shopping. Other channels can open for tele-business, including the largest American tele-shopping company and a 24-hour tele-shopping company. German businesses are hoping this new tele-shopping will help them sell more things.
Some people like tele-shopping because it allows them to do their shopping without leaving their homes. With all the problems of traffic in the cities, this is an important reason. But at the same time, other Europeans do not like this new way of shopping. They call tele-shopping “junk on the air”. Many Europeans usually worry about the quality of the things for sale on TV. Good quality is important to them, and they believe they can’t be sure about the quality of the things on TV.
The need for high quality means that European tele-shopping companies will have to be different form the American companies. They will have to be more careful about the quality of the things they sell. They will also have to work harder to sell things that the buyers cannot touch or see in person.

Shu Pulong has helped at least 1000 people bitten by snakes. “It was seeing people with snake bites that led me to this career,” he said.
In 1963, after his army service, Shu entered a medical school and later became a doctor of Chinese medicine. As part of his studies he had to work in the mountains. There he often heard of people who had their arms and legs cut off after a snake bite in order to save their lives.

He at once realized he had been bitten by a poisonous snake. In no time he wrapped a cloth tightly around his arm to stop the poison spreading to his heart. Rushing home he shouted ‘Bring me the knife!’ Minutes later the man lost his arm forever.”
