About Expector

Hi Friends,

Welcome to my page! Do you like the above photos I took when I was travelling in China? And, did you enjoy listening to the music on my wall? I hope so.

I'm not really an English teacher, though I often help learners learn English. I love English, which is a fantastic language and now a global one. I like to write and read blogs. I hope you can check out my blogs below - don't forget to leave your comment there and I'll respond.

I love MyEC. It's a great honour to be a moderator here. I'll do my best to help keep MyEC interesting, friendly and decent. I'd like to thank Josef and Tara for offering me such an opportunity to be a member of the excellent team here.

Enjoy!

Doc, I think I arranged it like you wanted. Please check.  It doesn't matter to me as long as I don't miss when people comment on my page. I always want to answer them.

Have a good day Doc.  I am reading in some of my medical texts to refresh my memory on some terminology I don't see often.

Wishing you a happy, meaningful and prosperous new year! Last month when we were in singapore, I watched they already started to decor the roads with chinese  decorated lamps. Most probably now it is more gorgeous!

Today is a non working holiday for we are united with our Chinese brothers and sisters in the celebration of the Chinese New Year.

I wish that your ears won't be impaired by the loud noises that firecrackers and explosives create.  Just stuff your ears with cotton balls or better if it is a headset, Doc.  

Enjoy your holiday, too!  ER can wait till next week, haha!

Now I understand, rimed trees. I had thought it was based in the word rim (rimmed) rather than rime (rimed). I can easily imagine rimed trees but couldn't fathom what a rimmed tree would look like.  I read about your area while my son was living in Harbin(to your north) and I looked up the ice festival. He sent photos of the Harbin Ice Festival and I found that Jilin had an ice festival and I thought they said famous rimmed trees.

I just went back and looked to see how I could have been so mistaken. But, I had read rimmed. Many of the web references are to rimmed trees and therefore wrong according to the dictionary links for the correct verb to use with rim and rime. I’m so glad that I had you there to reply with the correct spelling. Now I no longer try to visualize trees with a rim of some kind.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/rimmed?s=t 

By the way, weren't you living in Hong Kong before Jilin?

Hey Doc, I read about some famous rimmed trees near Jilin, China. Now I see that you may be living there now. I want to know more about those trees if you can tell me.  Also, I really enjoyed your recording.
