傷風感冒 cold(s) 及 流行性感冒 flu

cold 傷風感冒 flue 流行性感冒

抗生素對傷風感冒及流行性感冒無效;抗生素是用來殺細菌的,對病毒無效。
There's still no cure for the common cold, which can be caused by any of more than 200 viruses. Antibiotics won't help a flu or cold: They treat bacterial infections, not viruses.

● 如果傷風感冒了:溫鹽水漱口;瑜伽鼻壺加蒸餾鹽水清鼻;洗熱水澡。紫錐花錠/維他命C/鋅錠可縮短傷風感冒期,但無法避免感冒。
For a cold. Rest, drink liquids, gargle with warm salt water, and use a neti pot to flush the nose with distilled saltwater; suck on nonmedicated lozenges or swallow a bit of honey (don't give lozenges to young kids or honey to babies under 1 year old); and take a bath or shower to let warm, moist air loosen phlegm. Echinacea, vitamin C, or zinc lozenges might shorten the duration of a cold, but they won't keep you from getting sick.

● 如果感染了流行性感冒:休息及喝水。
For the flu. Rest and drink fluids.

√ 多洗手,少用手揉眼、鼻,可減少感染感冒的機會。
Wash your hands to stop spread of cold germs. When people sneeze or cough, the germs that are making them sick are expelled into the air in tiny droplets. These droplets can get onto your hands. If you touch your mouth, eyes or nose, you may be infected.

紅鼻子魯道夫馴鹿

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

魯道夫馴鹿,因為有個紅紅的鼻子,常遭到其他的馴鹿的嘲笑, 且也不讓他加入他們的遊戲。但是在某個聖誕夜,聖誕老公公找魯道夫領路,將禮物發送出去。(有歌詞字幕)

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer
Had a very shiny nose,
And if you ever saw it,
You would even say it glows.
All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names;
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve,
Santa came to say,
Rudolph with your nose so bright,
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?

Then all the reindeer loved him
As they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
You'll go down in history.

Over the River and Through the Wood

Over the river and through the wood,
To Grandmother's house we go.
The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh
Through the white and drifted snow.

Over the River and Through the Woods (另一版本)

Over the river and through the woods,
To grandmother's (or grandfather's) house we go;
The horse knows the way
To carry the sleigh,
Through the white and drifted snow, oh!

Over the river and through the woods,
Oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes,
And bites the nose,
As over the ground we go.

Over the river and through the woods,
To have a first-rate play;
Oh, hear the bell ring,
"Ting-a-ling-ling!"
Hurrah for Thanksgiving Day-ay!

Over the river and through the woods,
Trot fast my dapple gray!
Spring over the ground,
Like a hunting hound!
For this is Thanksgiving Day.
