In the north of Scotland there is a lake called Loch Ness. It is the biggest lake in Britain. It is over thirty kilometres long and in places nearly 300 meters deep. It is cold and dark and not many people went there until after 1930. Then a road was made around the lake. Holiday makers began to use the road, and this was when the stories began.
Someone said that he had seen a monster (巨人) in the lake. He said it was twelve meters long. It had a long neck and a small head. Then someone else said he had seen it. Others said the same thing and in 1933 a London doctor took a photo. It looked like a monster with a long neck and a thick body but the photo was not dear. The newspapers printed the picture and called it the Loch Ness monster, or "Nessie".
Then the argument began. Some people, however, were certain there was something living in the lake. Others said there was nothing there.
In 1961, a lot of people joined together to make a real effort to see and photograph the monster if there was one! Several times people thought they saw something but after ten years there was still no real proof.
Later underwater television cameras were used, but no one found any real proof. However, they did find something interesting: a huge underwater cave. It was big enough to be home of a monster, but of course, this was not a proof.
In 1975, however, some American scientists formed a search group. They used an underwater camera. It took pictures every seventy seconds. Some of the pictures seemed to show a red-brown creature. Its body was about four meters long and had a very ugly head on the end of a four meter neck. Many people then began to believe in the monster. But even today we can not be certain.

People usually celebrate special occasions by preparing special food. Families may prepare traditional dinners for holidays such as New Year's and Thanksgiving. Birthdays and other special days are often times for baking special cakes. Even celebrations famous only in small areas, such as memorial days for a place or event, can be a time for proud cooks to show off the food that they make the best. Sometimes this food may seem a little strange to the rest of us.
Weddings are celebrations where food is often an important part of the ceremony or party. Of course, the kinds of food prepared for weddings are different all around the world. One kind of food enjoyed at weddings in the Middle East and some parts of North Africa by members of the Bedouin tribe is roasted camel. This food is not easy to prepare, but when people want to go all out for the wedding, they ask the whole tribe to help with the effort. Tribe members first cook an egg mixture which they then put inside cooked fish. These fish are then put inside several cooked chickens. The chickens then get put in- to roasted sheep. Usually one or two sheep will be enough to fill one roasted camel. One roasted camel serves 20 to 30 people, so this dish may be enjoyed by the entire tribe at the wedding.
Chocolate chip cookies may not seem like a very special food, but organizers of the yearly festival which celebrates the city's birth in Ripon, Wisconsin made one cookie that was very special. On July 11, 1992, festival organizers attempted to bake the largest chocolate chip cookie in the world. It took the organizers months of planning and experimentation before they thought up a way to bake the cookie on a large, slowly turning tray. The recipe which the bakers used called for one and a half tons of raw cookie dough, made up of a ~ of flour, sugar, eggs, and milk. They also mixed four million chocolate chips into the dough. The tray itself was 10 meters (34 feet) across the middle, and it rotated so that one art of the cookie passed over a low flame that did not move. The cookie took two and a half hours to bake. Organizers of the festival then cut up the cookie and served it to 8,163 people at the festival.
