Both of my two sons were born in Toronto, but they moved with us to Ottawa when they were quite young. They went to school there, grew up there. Later, one of my sons went to Canada's east coast near a city called Halifax and the other moved to the west coast to Vancouver. My wife and I were left in the middle.
As we nearly retired (退休), we started to think where we should spend our final years. For several reasons we decided to live on a small town on Vancouver Island, where was close to one of my sons. However, the son moved to Hollywood soon after he had got another job there. I helped him move.
We still lived a happy life in our little west coast town, but we have paid a price. We have not been there for some important events such as the births of our grandchildren. We have missed watching them grow up; we have missed backyard barbecues(燒烤) and basketball weekends with them. Our home, while very comfortable, was also very quiet.
Every fall we travel to see the children. We usually fly, first to California to see our son Scott and spend a week or more with him trying to catch up on everything we've missed. Then, usually in November, we make the even longer trip east across Canada to see Travis and our grandchildren, who were about their twenties.
Fortunately, both our sons are doing well and grandchildren are growing up straight and tall. We love all of them and they love us. We're very happy but there are times I think about the things we didn't see; the tears or the smile on the granddaughter's face, their school graduations, my sons' joy at successes in business.
Life has been good for our family but we have all paid a price.

A. they all regret not living together all the time although enjoying a happy life
B. they enjoy a happy life because they can see each other every year

Scientists are now trying to make robots do the same things as we do. Some robots in Japan can walk and dance.36.他們觀看起來是有趣的。 Scientist James White thinks that robots will never be able to wake up and know where they are. But many scientists disagree with Mr. White. They think that robots will even be able to talk like humans in 25 to 50 years. Some scientists believe that 37.未來會有更多的機器人. In India, for example, scientists made robots that look like snakes.

How to Make Our Weekends More Meaningful
Life on weekends is an important part of our daily life. How can we make our weekends more meaningful? Here are e some of my suggestions.
First of all, the weekend is a great time for family to get together. It's good to help our parents do some housework. That can help us understand each other better and show our love for them. Secondly, we should spend time developing our interests and hobbies at the weekend. For example, I would like to choose some books to read and communicate with others after reading. Thirdly, we can take part in volunteering activities, like visiting the old people's home or doing some cleaning in public places. Last but not least, to make ourselves healthier, taking exercise is a good choice.
In short, let's make good use of our weekends.
