Pension to Violette

I think he should get a lower pension and not get such a huge amount of money. Since he took money from the Turnpike or spent it on un-necessary items. To get $130,000 a year after spending $155,000 from the Turnpike is frankly unfair and lets him spend or get even more. So he's not really being punished for his crime he did. Of course he has to pay off the $155,000 so his $130,000 should help pay it off. I think the money from his pension could be spent in a better way...

Healthier School Lunches

I think that both students and government have the right to provide or eat healthy lunches. The government can easily step in and make rules as to whats served. You can get wheat buns/bread instead of white. The same with pasta or pizza dough. Put more vegetables on pizza and just swap out fattening foods with more healthier foods or ingredients.  If the child is getting reduced lunch which is paid for by the government then there should be a limit on what he or she can buy. Now the student chooses wether he or she wants to buy the food. If they have money and they want the food you can't stop them. So the government is more of the leader in making lunches more healthy!

Job Hoping

Carers can be affected by job hoping because it makes your future employer look like you can't hold a job. I think the article is true because it tells everything that job hopers do and what employers think. The article also says that you should give your employer awhile before quitting.

Piracy Bill HiJacked

I think the internet should stay un-censored to a certain point. Blocking foreign sites that you could watch or download movies and songs should be blocked. Getting movies to watch for free is really hard because you have to sign up for so many sites. Music however is very easy to download and is probably a bigger issue. Pictures that show nudity, violence or graphic images should be blocked. For text anything that is offending or harassing someone should be blocked.

Greek Mythological Creature: Gorgon

The gorgon is a creature that has golden wings and scale like skin. They are believed to be invincible like Medusa who was killed by Perseus. Both can turn people into stone when someone looks into it's eyes. In real life they date back to temples were the warded off evil. Now they are placed on some older skyscrapers and have water run out there mouth in a storm.

Lamb to Slaughter

A wife is waiting for her husband to come back from work. He works at the police station. When he comes home she makes them some drinks and when he wants another he gets frustrated. He demands she sit down and then she offers to make him dinner. He gets more frustrated probably from drinking. Thats when he tells his wife something. The reader never learns what he said but from what I guess he had a affair with someone. When she goes downstairs to get the meat out of the freezer and walks back up he starts to leave. Without thinking she swings the lamb leg at him and on impact killing him. She starts to cook the lamb and then leaves to get more items from the store. At the store she buys cheesecake, potatoes and peas. When she gets back she calls the police station and acts like nothing happened. They come over to inspect the scene. She's asked a lot of questions and her story matches up with what she did. They went to the grocer who confirmed she was there. After awhile they search for a weapon. They don't find anything that could have killed him. She offers them the leg lamb that was cooking and they accepted after hesitating. During the meal they joke about how the leg could have been the thing that killed him. In the other room the wife starts giggling.

My Life

My life is repetitive because im on the same schedule every day. I go to school every day besides the weekend the occasional weather closing or vacation. Every week on the same night we have the same food and not much changes. Certain days ever week its the same shows just different episodes. I want to have a exciting life with tons of money and go to the mall every few days. Hang out with friends and drive around town. I also want to go traveling to Hollywood and Times Square! 

The Monkeys Paw

It starts with some people that could be a family in a home waiting for someone. Then a army general arrives and talks to them about a monkey paw that can grant three wishes. Once the three wishes have been used it no longer works for you. The old man in the household has much interest in the paw and when its thrown onto the fire he takes it away against the generals wishes. When the old man wishes for 200 pounds (money) he never gets it. The next day however they get 200 pounds when there is a accident at a factory and a family member gets hurt! The person dies and the mom wants him back. She wishes for him and then someone knocks at the door.

The Killing Fields

I think that the journalist was going to die. However using his smarts and waiting for the right moments he escaped the wrath of the Khmer Rouge. Also he traveled with other escapees to safety but only he made the journey.

Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

A good example of foreshadowing was when he jumps off the bridge and the rope snaps at the bottom of the fall. He thinks hes free and swimming away and not going to dye but actually hes dreaming when hes dying. The rope snapped and broke his neck when he reached the bottom of the fall.

The Odyssey

Fact 1: It's one of two poems about ancient Greek

Fact 2: Composed at the end of the 18th century period

Fact 3: It was made into a motion picture (movie)

Fact 4: It takes place after the Trojan War

Fact 5: Odysseus' means trouble in the Greek language

Drug Tests before Welfare

I think that it's a good idea! The tests would eliminate people that would spend money on drugs and alcohol. It would help the state save some money that could be spent on other things. “If ‘those people’ are going to take my money, I should have a say in who gets it”. which is being said by numerous Georgians.

Winter Vacation

I thought that Winter Vacation was long enough! For Christmas I guess the big things I got was a BB Gun and $75.00 to Gamestop! Over break I spent my time on Facebook and watching my new movies I got for Christmas. On Thursday I went to my grandparents house for the rest of break. The highlights of that was watching The Muppets and going on a Sunday Drive all around Maine! Now I'm counting down to Summer Vacation!!

All my gifts from my stocking and under the tree! :)
