Lord of the Rings

IF YOU WANT AN AWESOME MOVIE NIGHT, THEN LORD OF THE RINGS IS FOR YOU! LORD OF THE RINGS IS AN AWESOME FANTASY MOVIE THAT HAS A LOT OF ACTION IN IT THAT YOU WOULD LOVE. HOLLYWOOD MADE THIS A BOOK(THATS RIGHT, ITS A BOOK TOO!) AND PUT ALL THE DETAILS IN IT. I JUST WONT RECOMMEND IT FOR FAMILIES WITH KIDS IN MIDDLE SCHOOL AND YOUNGER. THIS MOVIE IS PG-13 AND DOES HAVE VIOLENCE IN IT. I WOULD WATCH THE MOVIES IN ORDER FROM THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING TO THE RETURN OF THE KING. IF YOU DON'T WATCH THEM IN THE ORDER 1-2-3 THEN ITS GOING TO NOT MAKE ANY SENSE TO YOU THEN. SO IT HAS AWESOME PARTS IN IT, AND SOME SAD PARTS IN IT TOO .LORD OF THE RINGS IS ABOUT A YOUNG HOBBIT ACCOMPANIED BY EIGHT COMPANIONS (MAN, DWARF, ELF, THREE HOBBITS, AND A WIZARD) TO DESTROY THE MOST POWERFUL RING OF THEM ALL. THEY HAVE TO DESTROY THE RING BEFORE SAURON GETS IT BACK AND GAINS FULL POWER AGAIN. ITS A GOOD MOVIE WITH ELVES, CAVE TROLLS, HOBBITS, HUMANS, ORCS, DWARVES, AND MANY MORE! IF YOU HAD ENOUGH INFORMATION, GO WATCH IT THEN.

Argument

Argument: The school board is considering reorganizing the school week. They are suggesting that there be four school days rather than five. Each school day would then be two hours longer. Support your position for/against this issue.


Agree (to shorten school week)

I would be for because you would have a three day weekend, including the last school day of the week, a four day weekend.







Disagree (not to shorten the school week)

More homework

Less time to hang out with your friends after school










I believe that the school week should not be shortened because students would have less time to sleep because of too much homework. Shortened weeks would mean that sports would go longer. Shortened weeks and longer days means that there would be no time for after school activities. Longer days mean that there would be no time for friends for after school.

Nursery Rhyme


On November 21, 2013, a simple family cottage got trashed by a little girl who goes by "Goldilocks". This all happened because Goldilock’s mother,Redlocks, sent her out to gather berries, but instead of finding berries, she found the cottage.This girl tasted their food and gobbled up the kid's food. She also sat in their chairs, but broke the kid's chair, and she slept in the kid's bed. We are searching the home to find anything else that she touched and will get rid of them IMMEDIATELY because Jeremiah Bear (Papa Bear) is allergic to humans. Right now, the bears' are in a hotel in Germany for a vacation. And Florence Bear (Mama Bear) is buying new toys for Tommy Bear (Baby Bear). Goldilocks has been sent to jail for questioning, while her mother is getting a vacation to the world's best spa resort in Africa.

Feature Story

HORSES

Everyone knows that horses are wonderful creatures, you probably do not know the interesting facts about them, though. If you're thinking about getting a horse, be prepared because they drink 5-10 gallons of water a day. If you don’t have a lot of horse food, get a lot because they eat 2 to 3 ½ percent of its own body weight. Horses love to eat, so when feeding a horse remember they all love to eat eggs, chaff, apples, carrots, bran, barley, linseed, corn, cod liver oil, root vegetables, oats, salt, seaweed, and dried sugar. Always make sure a stable door is locked real tightly because horses are smart to unbolt the stable door. Right after foals are born, they start to walk 30 minutes to an hour after they are born. Everyone knows a horse sleeps standing, but they can also sleep sitting too. A regular horse size would be 7 feet 2 inches, but thats only like one out of 110+ different breeds. To take the pain away from the saddle, get a saddle blanket to make it comfy on their backs. Surprisingly, horses, donkeys, and zebras are all related, so they are all part of the Equidae family. Those fun to watch horse races on racetracks kill 25 horses every week. If you have an ornery horse, better get prepared because he’s going to live with you for 25-30 years.
