The Arizona Diamond Backs, and the pitcher threw a bad pitch, and then the guy on first had tried to steal second but the catcher threw to second, and the runner was out.

Internet Safety Tips

  1. Never give any information to anyone you meet or see online. hear are some examples = first or last names, phone numbers (they can be used to track down you home), passwords, birth days or years, and credit card information.
  2. Never meet up with anyone you don’t already know. Don’t tell anyone your schedule; don’t say where you’ll be hanging out. No party plains. People are sometimes not who they say they are.
  3. Don’t fill out any questionnaires that are forwarded to you, even if they’re from your friends. Remember, you’re in a world where everything can get forwarded. All those personal things about you could land in the hands of someone who could use them to hurt you.
  4. Make sure you know everyone on your friends list. If you haven’t met the people face-to-face, they may not be who they pretend to be.Instant
  5. You do not have to answer emails or IMS from people you don’t know. As a matter of fact, you shouldn’t. Who knows who they are? Even if they say they’re “David’s friend,” David could be a lucky guess. “Kids” you meet in chat rooms may actually be creepy adults.
  6. There’s no such thing as “private” on the Internet. You may think so, but it’s not true. People can find anything they want — and keep what you post — forever.
  7. Be careful about posting pictures of yourself. Just because an older sibling has posted pictures on a site doesn’t make it a smart or a safe idea. Pictures with identifiers like where you go to school can be shopping lists for online predators and other creeps.
  8. Don’t send pictures of other people. Forwarding an embarrassing picture of someone else is a form of bullying. How would you like it if someone did that to you?
  9. Don’t download content without your parents’ permission. Many sites have spyware that will damage your computer. Other sites have really inappropriate content. Your parents can check your computer’s URL history, so you can’t hide where you’ve been.

Review: Tom Sawyer at Melon Patch Player in Leesburg

On Thursday April  22 there was a play called Tom Sawyer. It was at the melon patch player in Leesburg the address is 311 North 13th Street Leesburg . At the melon patch I did not see the show……. I was in it.  The people how played the characters were kids ages 9- 13 years old. The kids who played the people in Tom Sawyer were great actors. The play was about a kid named Tom and his friend Huck ( played by Mary) are in the grave yard (  which is in the middle of play) see muff potter and Injun Joe with Doc Robinson at the grave yard and them getting in to a fight and Injun Joe killing Doc Robinson, But that’s not all there is, Tom panting the fence( or making other pant the fence). It is full of action and humor that all mixed together made a great play.

Barn Swallow Nest Review

There is a new bird nest on Sports Man Paradise an it is swallows their are 4 chicks and one mother. The nest is located in the corner of a house. The mother swallow is feeding the baby swallows they have their eyes open by now. Barn swallows prefer a wide country side where the plants are low so they can easily swoop up any bugs that they can see and then return it to their nest. This nest is a small and the chicks inside the  nest can barley move around and also the mother has to hang on the side to feed a chick. And also they have their mouths open most of the time they will be sitting in their nest and the wind will blow and they will open their mouths. Or they would just keep their heads faced the wrong way. So if you want to see these baby chicks and vote then go to this link.

Facts about Anime

Anime, is abbreviation for “animation” in Japanese.  Animation originated in Japan. Anime was created in  about 1917. The world outside Japan regards anime as “Japanese animation”. While the earliest known Japanese animation dates from 1917  and many original Japanese cartoons were produced in the other decades. Anime’s style developed in the 1960s from the work of  Osamu Tezuka. Anime became known outside Japan in the 1980s.

Anime, like manga, has a large audience in Japan and is very popular throughout the world. Distributors can release anime in, via, television broadcasts, directly to video , as well as online. Both hand-drawn and computer animated anime exist. It is used in TV series, films, video, video games, ccommercials, and internet-based releases, and represents most.

Anime and Manga is a very particular style of art, its focus on the emotions and creation, that’s why the characters usually have big eyes and unrealistic faces, its make it easier to show what your character feel like, the simple style of drawing also make it easier to create your own character personality and look, unlike realistic art every hairstyle and clothing style become possible,

yet not all people like this, I am a fan of this form of art myself but it is something you like or dislike.

Review: How The Grinch Stole Christmas ( movie )

Have you read How The Grinch Stole Christmas, but have you seen the movie it came out in 2000? Then you should know the story but if  you don’t . It is a little different, it tells how a little girl named Cindy Lou Who ( played by Taylor Momsen) wants to find out why the Grinch ( played by Jim Carry) hates Christmas. Then the Grinch try to steal Christmas. After he is done he goes to Mt. Crumpit to dumb it off. ( SPOILERS can not tell the rest). This is one of the best movie ever. I love how it tells how the Grinch hates Christmas. It tells how people all want present and not how all the family is to gather. The movie show what the meaning of Christmas is  ( at least to me). I give 10 out of 10. Movie web site
