Duke of York Works Men to Exhaustion
Supposedly the Grand Old Duke of York or, The Grand Dictator of Evil has put his men through vigorous training exercises which leave men exhausted. The hill of York is now a giant mudslide waiting to happen. The Duke said that his general said, "That the troops are getting soft." Now if there is an attack our army will not be able to defend.
Owls Creatures of the Night
Owls are mysterious creatures that belong to the raptor family. What is a raptor? It’s not a dinosaur, it’s a bird of prey or a bird that catches prey. I’m going to talk about one particular raptor the owl. It’s hard to choose between the 216 different kinds of owls, so I’m going to talk about a few of them. Here’s some simple facts about them. Eighteen of the 216 belong to the barn owl family and 198 belong to the common owl family. Some common types of owls in Nebraska are the Barn owl, the Barred owl, the Great Horned owl, the Great Grey owl, the Eastern Screech owl, the Boreal owl, and the Burrowing owl. Those are just some of the owls of the world. The Eastern Screech owl can have grey or red feathers, but red is rarer. If you see an owl, you are very lucky because they only live in forest habitats and are solitary hunters. The Great Grey owl is the biggest owl in North America at 60 oz. and 30.1 in. tall. The Great Grey owl is the largest owl by length, but the Eurasian Eagle owl is the heaviest. The smallest owl is the Elf owl. Most owls live in forest environments, but some owls can live in cities. The smallest Owl in North America is the Northern Saw-Whet.
The movie Cast Away is a movie that you would expect from Tom Hanks. It has a good plot line, but the real movie is all about Wilson. There is a lot of sticklers he has to overcome, but it just gets repetitive after about an hour. I would give it four stars out of five. He has to get back to his home and back to his wife. He does eventually get back, but about five years later, just to find out that there is a whole lot of problems back home.
Clash of Clans
Clash of Clans is a massive multiplayer game that is online. You play it on your IOS device. The goal of the game is to build a base and destroy everybody elses. It takes awhile to get started, but once you do it’s pretty fun. I like this game because it’s free and to me that’s a win. The real reason I like it is because you only have to go into it for like five minutes a day.
