Commander Sanders Tales- Part Two

Blog Entry #3: Alright, in a few days, we launch the attack on Captain Cat. I know this attack will work. With Captain Cat gone, I will be able to launch many more attacks on other great enemies. We had a big meeting about the attack, with me and Lt. Flufferson leading. We hope not to lose many great and brave sloth fighters. We have a new suit that will enable us to move very quickly. Our slowness is one of our biggest enemies that causes us to fail. This suit will make our fighters one of the best in the whole galaxy. The Ship had some updates and special parts added to enable us to travel faster.

Blog Entry #4: Alright final blog before the attack! It is being launched tomorrow. Today, we have spent all of our time planning and preparing for our attack. It will be easy, I think, because we will be attacking with the element of surprise. Captain Cat will be going down. If lucky, I think we should take down all the enemies, but not the ship. That way, with one more ship, we will be unstoppable! Alright, I need to go get some sleep for the big battle coming up tomorrow. Good night everyone.

Blog Entry #5: Guess what? We won!!! Even better though, we got Captain Cat’s ship! We snuck up on the ship, and took them all down by surprise! We even got some Cat warriors hostage. We will question them later tomorrow to ask about other enemies they know. With two ships, we can double team the enemies. Also, Captain Cat’s ship includes software and weapons we needed. I was the 
one to finish off Captain Cat! I snuck into his head quarters, we had an epic battle, and I ended up throwing him out the window of his own ship! He isn’t dead, but he’ll floating in space forever! For eternity! One sloth did fall out of the ship when we were nearing earth to land. He had a parachute though. In the picture to the right you will see the sloth himself with his life-saving parachute.

Einstein, Light to the Power of 2

Einstein showed a little girl named Lanny what you can do with red, green, and blue and they come together and they become white. Lanny was friends with Einstein and she asked for help but she didn’t get help because the houseworker that helped Einstein didn’t let Lanny take to him. If you don’t know who Einstein is, he invented so many things. The three IB words that I am using are Open-Minded, Caring, and Risk-Taker.
Lanny was being very Open-Minded when she was thinking what to do for the school science fair.  It’s really cool what she did. She used light and how to make it powerful. If she put blue, green, and red, It made white and everyone was really happy but teacher didn't like Lanny because she was black so she tried to put her in special ed. Lanny’s mom didn't let her switch to special ed because she didn't want her to and neither did Einstein.
Einstein was being very caring when he help Lanny with the science fair.It was just telling a story about something and the idea was with light. This is very helpful because she can now begin. It was very easy to do when he was just standing there watch but not hand holding. Einstein was being caring because he said I will help you for one of  those jelly beans.
Lanny was being a risk-taker when she tried to do the science fair. It was really cool when she had blue, green, and red and made white light. When all join together they make white. She didn't even get help. The teacher was being mean but Einstein made it a A+. Which is what she deserves. Everyone was happy and lots of girls said good job and that meant a lot to her because everyone was a jerk. She was picked on because of her color of her skin.
So Lanny was being a risk-taker and Open-Minded when she was in this movie. She was very smart but the teacher didn’t like her. Einstein help with that and showed the teacher that she was smart. Lanny did good and this was a very good movie. Lanny was happy to have a friend.

Guess what? Bermuda Triangle

Guess what? Bermuda Triangle
Sam Hebbe
~Hillary Mayell
for National Geographic News
Updated December 15, 2003
On a sunny day 58 years ago, five Navy planes took off from their base in Florida on a routine training mission, known as Flight 19. Neither the planes nor the crew were ever seen again.

Not too long ago five Navy planes took off for training. This is known as Flight 18. This is such a big deal because those five planes, never came back. The Bermuda Triangle is known for sucking ships and planes to it’s deep abyss. Most of the people to cross the Bermuda Triangle never return to their families and disappear on the radar. What happens there is an example of chemical weathering. The story continues to go on about the missing people right now.
When the five Navy planes disappeared it was really when the Bermuda started to stand out. Although the Bermuda Triangle really got to be noticed at that time the name had been given by  Vincent Gaddis in 1964. The Flight 19 was the first, but you can sure bet that it wouldn’t be the last. Many people thought maybe it was just bad luck or bad designmenship in the plane. But here is the strange thing. Those planes had been tested before and they worked fine they had been new and improved but now they are in the abyss.  A ship that was holding aircraft had sank because of sudden severe weather and the ship disappeared. Scientists thought they had found that ship but lead by disappointment it was just a different ship that had been destroyed. A man had been flying his plane and had happened to pass through a lot of fog and and he had disappeared on the radar near the caribbean and he had made it through it took him and hour but he made it. Now he had to go back to America. It was a sunny day when he took off... that changed in the middle of his flight when lightning was striking and it became cloudy and very foggy. He tried to reach the people on the other side of the radio but there was no signal. It cleared up about 3 minutes later and thats also when the radio signal came back and he panicked and asked where he was and he was shocked when he had heard that he was where he need to be. He traveled back to america in 6 minutes. This means it took him six minutes to travel a about an hour flight. He said that when he was going through the fog he saw a circle with swirls in it and then a big flash happen thats when he said that he was blinded by the light and when he got his vision back... he was where he needed to be, with full radio signal, and it was sunny. He was one of the few to survive the Bermuda Triangle.
The Bermuda Triangle is a strange place. It is a scientist tourist attraction. It is a strange place because people can only believe these things by a personal experience and it also has the strangest weathering changes. The Bermuda has a magnet pull and the extreme climate change is part of why people go missing.

Indians on a warpath

              The Indians were very territorial. If their land was in danger they would protect it. White people were establishing mining communities on the Indian ground. The settlers were also trapping and hunting and started to take over. Trouble started because at this time the Civil War was progressing, this made the Indians mad. The Sioux Indian tribe took action by Minnesota uprise. This uprise was appointed in the year 1862.The Sioux were defeated by the Union soldiers.
            After the defeat, the Sioux got extremely mad and started on a killing spree known as the Chivington Massacre. This war was placed in the Western Plains. Laramie, Wyoming, Bozeman and Montana were also hot Indian war spots. The indian Wars pained the western frontier for many moons.  Mining camps were overtaken and wagons were robbed.

             Even though the federal government reserved many lands for Indians, the settlers were still moving to the locations. Many soldiers even said “the only good Indian is a dead one.” There were also good Indians that were murdered by the army in numbers of over 300.
This took place in Sand Creek Colorado. This is what is believed to start the spark that fueled the massacre.

UH OH OH It's Thanksgiving

Ok guys, it was thanksgiving on Thursday, and a new song came out about Thanksgiving. The
video was made by a terrible music making company called, Peto Music. Peto music needs to stop playing all of this crap music and wrecking people's minds. First off, the Brocks Dub came out and that was better than the song!!! I know there's no singing, but it's a lot more funny. If you watched the video, you might of saw the racism take part in the music video. Ok, A black guy shows up in a turkey suit, looking like a chicken suit. And he starts to eat a turkey leg like it's a chicken leg. It's like who are these people and what are they doing??? U know... Well anyways, I think I will post this video to =3 and have him put a review on it. If this dosen't happen, then I will do it. Well, probably not. Because there are already like 20 videos on reviewing it's thanksgiving. I do have to admit, the girl is kinda hot, but the producers probably put on  like 2 inches of make up on her face. Thinking her face is paper that you can draw on. I bet ya Peto music will get sued. Just kidding!! but I hope.
nuff said.

Commander Sander's Blogs

The Tales of Commander Sanders!
Most of you are probably wondering who Commander Sanders is. Well, Commander Sanders is not only the best astronaut I have known, but the best warrior and leader I know. Who am I you ask? Well, I am one of Commander Sanders fighters. I have fought wars against enemies in space, and I have been around Commander Sanders a lot. Being around him so much, I managed to find some of his journals. I just have to share them with you.

Blog Entry #1: Well, today I am starting my first day of leader and captain of the new ship, called the Space Marine. It is now called The Sanders Supreme Fighter. If you don’t know already, my name is Sanders. That’s it. No first or last name, just Sanders. I haven’t met all of the other fighters, but have made friends with a great man, or sloth, name Lt. Flufferson. Lt. Flufferson is a very high rank, but not as high as me. After all, I am the commander. How am I commander if I don’t even know anyone? Well, I used to work on another ship, and did a GREAT deed. That’s another story though, so back to my first day. Great so far, and I just finished supper. It was great. The best chef on the whole ship cooked it.

Blog Entry #2: Day two. Still doing good. We haven’t been attacked yet, so I think I will launch an attack on one of my greatest enemies. Captain Cat. Captain Cat has a large army, but mine is larger. I know I can take Cat’s army down. We shall launch at night. This shouldn’t be too hard of a battle, since we also have a great weapon, The Sloth Cannon. No, the sloth cannon doesn’t shoot sloths, it fires a deathly laser created by ou
best scientist, Sondiel Slothifer.

         This blog is about our basketball season and what we are doing. The first game we won 29-28. It was a lucky game because there were 11 seconds left and Jedd scored on the buzzer. We were so happy because last year we only won 3 games and lost the rest. It is good that we are Tigersharks because we won our first game. The referees called a lot of bad calls.
Our second game we lost and there were a lot of bad calls from the referees but we almost won and we missed a lot of free throws. It was fun because I played in the 7th grade game too. I wish we could have won but it was OK. We will the next time. Last year we could of won more if we were the Tigersharks. We needed the extra people and a better point guard. Basketball is a fun sport and you can play it when ever you want if you have a hoop and a ball. Our coach tells us that you play like you practice and its true. The 7th grader’s bet us in practice and we lost our game and they won. So he is right and if we try really hard we can win and we will win because we are better then they are, but only if we try our hardest. For having a small school I think we do really well. On our team we have 17 players. On the 8th grade there are ten and on the 7th grade there are 7. I wish more players went out but at the same time the other school has lots of people and then you barely play. It is a good size team and basketball is really fun! I hope we can win some more games and if we don’t at least we will play hard and try. The 7th graders are good and they can win as well as we can.

The full story of Commaned Sanders.

  The coolest and most interesting sloth ever was born on the normal sunny day of May twenty sixth 2000. His name then was little Bob Sanders but in the near future he won’t be called that, he will be called Commander Sanders the Great Adventurer.
Here is a picture of little Bob when he was born.

  Now little Bob is only one year old and he is just now finishing up his first adventure in his great career of adventures. For this one he will go with his dad and mom to the great Amazon rain forest, where he and his parents go looking for fossils. Unfortunately, they turn up dry. But little Bob still has a great time, in fact, such a great time that in the next year of his long life he will go back. He will go back more and more as he gets older so he can remember his parents and his childhood. Especially his parents because just a month later they died in a horrific tree climbing accident at super high speeds of three and four miles per hour. If you don’t mind, it was so gory that I would rather not get into the details of the accident. But in a few months little Bob is over the accident, out of slthoster care and living on his own. Now let’s jump ahead a month and go to the NASA space station, where little Bob finally goes from little Bob to Commander Sanders the Great Adventurer. After he gets hired at NASA to go to the moon and explore the dark side that no one had ever explored, if he and his team of four are successful and find valuable information they would be re hired to do another mission. So just like anyone else, Commander Sanders and his adventurous co-workers were psyched about getting this high paying job at a legendary place. They thought going to the moon would be the greatest adventure they would ever do and that they would definitely get re hired and they would soon be rich, famous, and all over the news. But when they accepted the mission they had no idea that there was any danger on the moon and that if there was NASA would warn them about it. They would soon find out that they wouldn’t  all make it out alive and the few that did would barely make it out.
Here is a picture of little Bob right after he is hired as Commander Sanders, the Great Adventurer.
End of chapter one.

May the bag be ever in your favor!

This is an urgent message! I repeat this is an urgent message! This just in; all Doritos chips have been banned in these following countries: Kazakhstan  Canada, UK, the continent of Asia, and USA. I am sad to report that there are only 3 million family bag sizes left in the world.  But before you get your hopes up, there's a catch. In order to get one of these bags you must fight for it. Two people from every district (countries) will compete for Doritos. But there is a catch for that catch. You will be picked by a drawing of names and there will be a bracket. The top ten countries in this fight to the death will go on to the nationals. Then those top 10 contenders will fight to the death for all the Doritos in the world. Many lives will be lost. But think of the children. These deaths will be lost for a chance to have amazing taste in their lives for a little while longer. With the privilege of winning this fight, the company will be yours until the Doritos are gone. This is your choice keep the Doritos for yourself, or sell them and make millions of dollars, riches beyond your wildest dreams by selling Doritos for outrageous prices. You're probably thinking to yourself right now as we speak,"People won't buy Doritos for steep prices." But in reality, you would be surprised how much people would pay for Doritos, or what they would do for one little Dorito. After all these fights go down, Doritos will still be here. Oh yes they will. Doritos will just be illegal to own or have. So you can still buy and eat and own Doritos, it will just be illegal. BZZZZZWWZZHHZZ(sound effects from walkie talkie) Oh yes sir I will let them know right know. This just in, my boss has informed me that this is called the Doritos Games. He told me to tell you happy Doritos Games and may the bag be ever in your favor. One last thing the people will be taken home for the Doritos Games in 5,4,3,2,1.... Good luck BBBZZZZZZ (broadcasting news screen that lost signal)

Halloween! Many people love Halloween and like do stuff like trick or treat. I would like to explain what I do on Halloween, and my thoughts on it. Why is Halloween a holiday you ask? Well, I will answer that during this blog entry. The costumes are often scary on halloween.
Also, on Halloween, a lot of people go on rides and walks that are supposed to scare them. What do you think? Are you scared of these rides?
First of all, I am going to explain my thoughts on Halloween. I think Halloween should be a holiday. It is a great time for little kids, or just kids, to get a lot of candy, and for adults to hand out candy. Also, a lot of kids and adults like to go on rides and walks to try and scare themselves. On these walks, people will jump out and try to scare you with items such as chainsaws (don’t worry they won’t cut you). Personally, I think these walks would be fun. I can also say I don’t trick or treat much. It may be a surprise to you, but, I never really have trick or treated. I could if I wanted to, but I get enough candy already.
Next, I am going to explain to you what I do on Halloween. I don’t do much, but I don’t really consider Halloween one of my favorite holidays (though I know a lot of people do). For Halloween, I stay at home like a normal day, do my homework, go outside, etc.For supper my mom will bake 
some really good meal for our family will all sit down at the table like we do every night. My mom will also cook a really good dessert for us. Also, my brother and I will have our mom buy some candy to have at home. Yes, we don’t do a whole lot for Halloween, but I still think the day is a good holiday, just not my favorite.

Last, I am going to explain the whole purpose to Halloween. You may think Halloween is just a random day where you get candy and dress up, but there is more to it. Halloween came from a celebration connected with evil spirits. Saying this, I mean goblins, ghosts, witches, you get the point. Why is the color black one of the Halloween colors? This is most likely because the Halloween festivals occurred at night, and it tends to be scarier. Also, the other Halloween color, orange, is because people always decorate with pumpkins before Halloween. Before Halloween people like to decorate their houses with things such as ghosts, goblins, and a lot of times witch silhouettes. There are often events where people have contests for best costume.
Halloween is one of the holidays celebrated in the USA, and is probably the scariest. People love this holiday for its scariness, the pumpkins, and especially the candy. I do not trick or treat myself, but I can see why kids love to. Believe it or not, people like to try to scare themselves, and Halloween is the perfect time. From, pumpkin carving, to trick or treating, Halloween is one of our great holidays. What would you rather do, trick.....or treat?!?!?



Disney World

Amusement Park Survey 2
Here’s another entry for roller coasters......
The best park in the world is........... Walt Disney WORLD. The best place where you can find your dreams. Disney world in Florida is the best place to go, if you want to do something that is an adventure. Disney is like a place where you think in your mind, “WOW, I’m here!” That’s not the only fun part..... going down to Florida is the best also. Getting on an airplane and flying over the clouds... best day ever!!!
Anyways, when we got there, I got autographs from Disney characters and checked into our hotel. Our place was the only area with a pool, that had gift shops around it and breakfast too. When we were ready, I went on the teacups with my bros and my elderly Dad,(Just kidding) to have some fun. At first, Logan, Nathan, and I were spinning the wheel and were having a blast. However, our arms were really tired, so my dad took the wheel. OHHH GAWD. Nathan almost came flying out, and Logan and I were like, “Is that really dad?” Anyways, my least favorite ride was the Tower of Terror, I’m not going to talk about that. All I’m going to say is, I was crying, and my Grandmother had to hold my hand.
      My very favorite roller coaster at Disney World was the "Rock 'n' Roll Coaster''. The Rock 'n' Roller Coaster is a roller coaster that's indoor, and goes upside down. This ride takes place inside of a building, next to the Tower of Terror. The theme of this roller coaster is about rock n roll, and has fame to the band, "Aerosmith''. Just let me say this, that ride was the best there.
Nuff said.

Here's what it looks like...
