Some Good Rules

1. Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.

2. Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today. 31 After dinner sit a while, after supper walk a mile.

4. Lost time is never found again.

5. An hour in the morning is worth two in the evening.

6. The early bird catches the worm.

Text A. An Englishman's Diary

(after Stephanie Andrews)

An Englishman's day - and who can describe it better than an Englishman's wife? It begins when he sits down to breakfast with his morning newspaper.

As he looks through the headlines there is nothing he likes better than his favourite breakfast of cornflakes with milk and sugar (porridge if he lives in the North), fried bacon and eggs, marmalade on toast and tea (with milk, of course) or coffee.

He in fact gets such a meal if there is enough money in the family to buy it. After breakfast, except on Saturdays and Sundays which are holidays, he goes to work by train, tube, bus, car, motor scooter, motor bike or walks there. He leaves home at 7:30.

At offices or factories there is a tea or coffee break at eleven. Then at mid-day everything stops for lunch. Most offices and shops close for an hour from one to two. Englishmen are fond of good plain food, and they usually want to know what they eat. They like beefsteaks, chops, roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, fried fish and chipped potatoes.

There are usually two courses in the mid-day meal - a meat course with a lot of vegetables, a sweet dish, perhaps fruit pudding and custard with tea or coffee to finish.

Then back to work again with another break in the middle of the afternoon, once again for tea or coffee, sometimes with a cake or biscuit.

The working day finishes at any time between four and six. When an Englishman gets home he likes to inspect his garden before the evening meal: tea, high tea, dinner or supper. When his evening meal is over, the Englishman may do a little gardening and then have a walk to the "local" (the nearest beerhouse) for a "quick one" (a drink, alcoholic, of course!). There are a lot of people at the "local" and he can play darts, dominoes, billiards or discuss the weather, the local events or the current situation. But if the Englishman stays at home, he may listen to the radio, watch television, talk or read.

Then at any time between 10 and 12 he has his "nightcap" -- a drink with a snack - and then off to bed ready for tomorrow.

Text B. A Student's Day

Paul: What time do you get up on week days?

Bob: I generally get up at seven o'clock.

Paul: Why so early?

Bob: Because I have a lot of things to do before I leave for the University.

Paul: Do you do your morning exercises regularly?

Bob: Yes, that's what I begin with as a rule. Then comes the usual procedure of

making my bed, washing and so on. Paul: Do you take a bath every morning? Bob: No, I don't. As a matter of fact, I hardly ever take a bath in the morning. I

prefer taking a shower. Then I clean my teeth, comb my hair and get dressed. Paul: Who makes your breakfast for you? Bob: If my mother is not up yet I make my breakfast myself. If my mother is up, she

does. After breakfast I usually help Mother to clean np. Paul: Good for you! That's what I call a model young man. And when do you leave

home? Bob: Generally at half past eight, as it takes me about twenty minutes to get to the

University. Paul: Do you walk to the University or do you take a trolley-bus? Bob: I always take a trolley-bus in the morning. But after classes I sometimes walk

home. Paul: You go home right after classes, don't you? Bob: Sometimes I do, and sometimes I don't. If I can prepare for the next day's

classes at home, I go straight home. If I haven't got the necessary books and

journals at home, I go to the library.
