get a lot of letters at this time of year from people complaining (抱怨) that they have a cold and that it won’t go away. There are so many ways to cure (治愈) a child. It is often difficult to know what to do. Although (尽管) cold are rarely (很少) dangerous, weak people , such as the elderly or young babies, often catch them. Colds are always uncomfortable and sometimes very unpleasant. Of course, you can buy lots of medicine. This will help to make your cold less unpleasant, but you must remember that nothing can actually cure a cold or make it go away quickly.
Another thing is that any medicine can be dangerous if you are already taking another type of medicine for some other illness. So always check with your chemist (药剂师) or doctor to see if they are all right for you. Also, remember that they might make you sleepy; please don’t try to drive it they do! Lastly, if you want to keep away from colds, don’t blindly (盲目地) believe in ‘magic’ foods or drinks. The best way is to keep strong and healthy –you’ll have less chance of catching a cold, and if you do, it shouldn’t be so bad!

Pisces is the twelfth star sign. There is a legend about its name.
Long, long ago, there was a war between gods and a bad monster (怪物). It lasted ten years. One day, the gods were surprised to find that the monster was coming towards them. The goat god Pan shouted a warning and tried to change himself into a fish. One god, Aphrodite, took her little boy Eros and tried to hide among the bushes near Euphrates River. She was the god of love and her son was the god of war. It is said that two fish swam to carry Aphrodite and her child to safety. Some people also believe that Aphrodite and Eros changed into fish themselves and swam away to safety. Later the fish represent Aphrodite and her son Eros.
As they appeared in the sky, the two fish were tied together by a rope (绳子). Some said that Aphrodite tied the little boy to her body so that he would not get lost as they swam away to safety. That’s the story about Pisces.
