tell us a little about that?

Fritz: Thats terrible. How did this happen to a successful businesswoman like you?

cookbook needs to be different from other cookbooks in some way. I was too busy
telling people what to do instead of just writing a successful cookbook.
Fritz: I see. So, what are your plans for the future?
Sarah: I have a new invention: its a house-cleaning robot.
Fritz: That sounds interesting. Do you think this time you will succeed?
Sarah: I think anything that helps people and gives them more free time will be a success.
Fritz: Well, thats very interesting. Thank you, Mrs. Jenkins.

Good evening. This is Jack Hill, and here is today's sports!

First, baseball. Toronto is in first place. Sam Wilson says that his team is going to win
the championship this year. But he says that every year.

In soccer, Bill Brown had the best game of his career. The Tour de France bicycle race
started yesterday in Paris at 3 o'clock. Last year, Jacques Chardin won for France. Can
he do it again? I don't know...

In California, the Children's Olympics started yesterday. Good luck to all the 600 boys
and girls.

And, finally, tennis. Tonight is the big tennis game between rock star Maxi and the
famous actor, Peter Anson. This is Jack Hill, and that was sports.

People Are Crazy About Sports


by Stan Bruer

Why do people love to watch sports? Professor Len Sanders of Georgetown University
asks this question in his study, People and Sports. We can understand why people
like to play sports. Its good exercise and a lot of fun,says Professor Sanders. But why
do millions of people pay so much money to watch other people play?

Sports is good business. A winning team can make millions of dollars. A good athlete or
player can make a very large salary. For example, at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships,
the winner can make more than $2.9 million.

Good evening, Larry.
Larry: Good evening, Sandra.
Sandra: Larry, what is a whistling wallet?
Larry: Well, its a special wallet with a small battery inside. If you sing near it, the
wallet whistles. People often lose their wallets in their homes. Now they can
easily find them.
Sandra: Do you need to sing a special song?
Larry: No. Any song is OK.
Sandra: Oh, great! Its easier to sing than to look all over the house. Where can I buy
the wallet?
Larry: Well, I still have to work on it. I gave wallets to some of my friends. Now two
of them are angry with me. They went to a rock concert, and their wallets
made a noise all the time. The people around them were very angry.

answered all the telephone calls and letters, and started my business. I told all the new
workers, Be quick, and be clean. I showed them how to clean homes and offices.
First, we all worked together. Now, they usually work alone.
Last night I showed my daughter how to make a cake. First, take four eggs from the
refrigerator and some sugar from the cupboard. Then, open the box...
Suddenly I had a wonderful idea: cookbooks! Im starting a new business! With my
