In the United States, when one becomes rich, he wants people to know it. And even if he doesn’t become very rich, he wants people to think that he is. That is what“keepingup with the Joneses ”is about. It is the story of someone who tried to look as rich as his neighbors.

The expression was first used in 1913 by a young American called Arthur Momand. He told this story about himself. He began earning $ 125 a week at the age of 23. That was a lot of money in those days. He got married and moved with his wife to a very rich neighborhood outside New York City. When he saw that rich people rode horses, Momand went horseback riding every day. When he saw that rich people had servants, Momand and his wife also hired a servant and gave big parties for their new neighbours.

It was like a race, but one could never finish his race because one was always trying to keep up with. The race ended for Momand and his wife when they could no longer pay for their new way of life. They moved back to an apartment in New YorkCity.

Momand looked around him and noticed that many people do things just to keep up with rich lifestyle of their neighbors. He saw the funny side of it and started to write a series of short stories. He called it “Keeping up with the Joneses” because “Jones” is a very common name in the United States. “Keeping up with the Joneses” came tomean keepingupwithrichlifestyleofthepeoplearoundyou.Momand’sseriesappearedin

different newspapers across the country for over 28 years.

People never seem to get tired of keeping up with the Joneses. And there are “Joneses in every city of the world. But one must get tired of trying to keep up with the Joneses because no matter what one does, Mr. Jones always seems to beahead.

About ten men in every hundred suffer from color blindness in someway. Womenare luckier:onlyaboutone intwohundred isaffected (影响)in thismatter. Perhaps, after all,it is safer to be driven by awoman!

There are different forms of color blindness. In some cases a man may not

green. In rare cases an unlucky man may see everything in shades of green——a strange world indeed.

Color blindness in human beings is a strange thing to explain. In a single

eye there are millions of very small things called “cones”. These help us to see

in a bright light and to tell difference between colors. There are also millions of “rods”, but these are used for seeing when it is near dark. They show us shape but no color.

Someinsects(昆虫) have favoritecolors. Mosquitoes (蚊子)prefer bluetoyellow.

A red light will not attract insects, but a blue lamp will.In a similar way the humans also have favorite colors. Yet we are lucky. With the help of the cones

in our eyes we can see many beautiful colors in the day, and we can see shapes

at night. Somedaywe mayevenlearnmore abouttheinvisible(看不见的)colors aroundus.
