My favourite invention

Submitted by paula y pedro on Сб, 05/23/2015 - 06:39



My favourite invention is MP3. I have had one for three years.. It was a present from my mother.I always listen t music on my MP3.

When I was a child I used to listen music on a walkman. Then discman. I bought it. I used to bring so I could listen to music when I was on the street.

Once time I fell down on the street and it broken. This gadget was bigger than my MP3  and less easy to carry. I prefer my MP3 than discman.

Money begets money. 金が金を生む
to spend money like water 湯水の如く金を使う
The more one has, the more one wants. 人は持てば持つ程欲しくなる
Take no thought for the morrow. 明日は明日の風が吹く
A rolling stone gathers no moss. 転がる石には苔は生えない
The mouse that has but one hole is quickly taken. 穴一つだけのネズミはすぐ捕まる
Better there should be too much than too little. 少なすぎるより多すぎる方がまし
Murder will out. 殺人は必ず露見する

For a want of a nail 釘一本足りない為に

End of afternoon

Submitted by Elzio on Пт, 05/22/2015 - 19:38



Today After I left the job I was to play tennis. I and my friend Flavio play in the same class. We did a match between us. At the last time I won, but this time I didn't the same luck. He won the set by 6-4. We had a ranking with the game. Thus, he got to make the point equal me. I like to play tennis. When I whatch on the tv, it is pleasure. On the other hand, it's sport expensive and it very hard to play.
