Yesterday afternoon, a moose and a young boy were spotted at a grocery store buying muffin mix. It was extremely unusual for a moose to be shopping, but didn't seem like the boy knew anything was out of the ordinary. The news group had asked the child why he was at the grocery store with a moose. He simply replied, “We ran out of muffins for my moose, so we need more mix!”

Means girls is an entertaining movie about a girl named Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan), who moved from Africa and started her first day at a public school, North Shore High. There's a group of girls called the Plastics, Regina (Rachel McAdams), Gretchin (Lacey Chabert), and Karen (Amanda Seyfried). They soon accept Cady into their group and Cady becomes one of the popular girls. But when Cady starts to take over the group, and people start to like Cady better, it's a war between Regina and Cady. Regina is controlling and tries to hurt Cady, in hopes Regina will once again be the head Plastic. After a lot of revenge, fighting, and lies, the girls part and there's no more Plastics, just regular teenage girls. No more cliques.


Snapchat is a commonly used popular app used in the 21st century. It’s a way for kids thirteen and older to communicate and post about whatever they’re doing daily. Snapchat started as an app created by Bobby Murphy and Evan Spiegel as a project for Stanford University. It was created on September 11, 2013, originally named “Picaboo,” which was later changed to “Snapchat.” Snapchat introduced “Snapkidz” for kids under the age of thirteen. Snapchat works with three pages, a home page (the “snap” page), the recents page, and the story page. The home page,or snap page, in the middle, is where you click the button at the bottom of the screen to take a picture of yourself to send to somebody. You can hold down on your face to get filters, such as the dog filter, or the police cop filter. Or you can swipe left or right to get regular filters such as the time, temperature, B&W, etc. After you’ve taken your picture, you can tap on the screen to start typing a message. You can also draw, or add emojis to the picture with the icons at the top of the screen. Then just click the blue arrow at the bottom to send the picture to somebody or post to your story. On the story page, on the right side, a list of your Snapchat friends appears on the screen. When you tap on the person’s name, you can see everything they’ve posted to their story and everything that you’ve posted to your story. On the Recents page, on the left side, it shows a list of friends that you’ve recently Snapchatted with. Hold down on their Snapchat name to change the name, block the person, or remove the person from your Snapchat list. Double tap to send a picture to the person, or swipe to the left to send a message without a picture. Also, on the home screen, there’s a small “Snapchat ghost” at the top of the screen. Swipe down on the ghost to see your picture, “add friends, “my friends,” and “added me.” Happy Snapchatting!!
