The Cat and the Dog

A long time ago, when cats and dogs were consider as house pets. There was a ginger cat with a raccoon like tail, named Simbobway. Simbobway was a very placid, tamed, and pampered pussy cat ever since he was a little kitten. Life was going great for him whenever he stayed in his territory, except when his enemies where around.
Simbobway longed to go exploring outside his territory, without his enemies around. One day Simbobway caught a bird, and then about to started to settle down to his meal that he just caught. Then suddenly he heard a cats hissing.
Simbobway quickly looked around, and then he spotted Old Tailor. Old Tailor was the biggest, meanest, the one with a ton of wounds from fighting and a torn ear, and Scariest out of all the cats in the neighborhood. This cat, Old Tailor, was an enemy to all cats who know him. And any cat who knew her did not want to fight with this bad pussy.
Simbobway hissed a warning at the sneaking Old Tailor. Old Tailor ignored the warning, and then pounced on Simbobway. The cats immediately went into a fight mode, for the satisfying dead bird. A minute later Simbobway ran off to safety, leaving the prize to Old Tailor.
Simbobway was walking one day when he saw Old Tailor jumping down a fence into her territory, with a dead mouse of bird in his jaws. When he saw this, he followed Old Tailor went at a safe distance. Simbobway bolted away when the old cat turned around.
He had spent a week trying to find out where the dogs lived, and sometimes even running away from them. Simbobway knew every were every dog lived in the neighborhood, so he found a safe spot to spy on the dog(s) of each house every day.
Until one day a new dog moved into the neighborhood. Simbobway found this new comer and tried to follow everywhere the dog went and tried to find out where the dog lived, but failed at each attempt.
The dog was a German Shepard, named Ranger. At every attempt to follow Ranger to where he lived, no matter how hard how quiet he was and time of day, the dog would be ending chasing the poor cat away.
Years had gone by since the new comer came. Somehow the new comer figured out exactly where every dog and cat lived, including their time schedule’s for being let outside all without any friends. Whenever Ranger ended up in a dog fight, he somehow knew the neighborhood a lot better than any other animal in the neighborhood.
Some dogs even ganged up on poor Ranger, but he outwitted them always. Ranger even chased all cats, including Old Tailor, who always attacked any and every dog that he saw did not run away from him. so whenever Old Tailor saw Ranger he would attack the poor dog to teach him to pay some respect to biggest, meanest, and Scariest out of all the cats and dogs, but Ranger always got the better of Old Tailor.
One time Simbobway just happened to see one of these occasions. He was also very glad to see it because any and every dog or cat who met Old Tailor ran away, but not this one. So Simbobway tried to make friends with the dog instead of finding where he lived.
But still he failed at each attempt he made. He even tried to give the dog a token of friendship, but still failed. Ranger seemed friendlier to the ones who practically where not friendly to him/ fighting with him.
Then one day Simbobway decided to make friends with the dogs who he knew, but instead he ended getting chased instead. The poor cat tried to jump on higher ground, but he was cut off short. He ran into an ally and tried to jump to safety, but the dogs still chased him onward.
The cat ran and ran, with the dogs in pursuit after him. Poor Simbobway was trapped in a corner at the back of the ally. He meowed for being reused, and hissed out warnings to the other dogs. But nothing good came out of it.
Then suddenly out of nowhere Ranger and Old Tailor came to the rescue. Ranger, although not a friend to any of the dogs, was right besides Simbobway. Ranger was growling and snapping his jaws at the other dogs, forcing them away from Simbobway.
Simbobway suddenly jumped jump because of the catlike hissing noise that came right from behind him. He turned around to see Old Tailor right behind him. He gave a warning hiss at Old Tailor, but as usual she ignored, and then pounced but surprisingly not at the other cat, but at the dogs behind Simbobway.
Old Tailor scared some of the dogs, but not enough to scare them away. Ranger and Old Tailor were in front protecting Simbobway. Simbobway seeing his two enemies protecting him from the other enemies, decided to help his two protecting enemies out.
So he jumped against the wall as high, then pushing off with his legs, and gave the attacking dogs a mighty hiss and then landed on all fours right in between Ranger and Old Tailor. He gave another hiss at the dogs with Old Tailor, busy forcing the attackers to go backward. With the three, they backed off the attackers, enough for all three to escape.
Once the gap between them was big enough, the three defenders bolted away from the attackers. Simbobway, and Old Tailor jumped on the back of the quick thinking Ranger. Once they were out of the ally the two cats jumped off Ranger and ran home, while Ranger sadly walked, once he was away from the attackers, to where he stayed.
That same night Simbobway went to get Old Tailor, to follow him. The two snuck around to find Ranger. They were devastated when they found that Ranger was leaving the town, and that he had no place to stay.
So the two cats went up to him and invited him back into the neighborhood. Ranger looked like as to say “I have nowhere to go, nowhere to live”. Old Tailor even looked the same as Ranger did. Simbobway look like as if he was inventing the two unfortunate animals into his home.
So the three animals went to Simbobway’s place. They reached at Simbobway’s place almost at noon. That is when they rung the door bell, to notify Simbobway’s owners that they were about to have two more pets in the house.
When the house owners, who were Mr. and Mrs. Kadroupledrop, opened the door they were excited to see their cat, Simbobway, had returned home unscratched, but he had a pleading look on his face that told them that he was asking to take his new friends into their home. But when they looked out the door, Ranger and Old Tailor where already slowly, and sadly walking away.
When Simbobway gave them, Ranger and Old Tailor, a sharp welcoming, yes they accept you “Purrrrrrrr meow”. When the two animals heard the welcoming sign, they turned around to see that Simbobway had pleading look on his face, and embracing arms. So the two lonely animals ran to the welcoming arms and the happy Simbobway.
A few years later, Simbobway and Old Tailor had little kittens of their own. And Ranger became the leader of the dog gang. But they welcomed the newcomers instead of going to beat them up.

One evening at YM’s summer camp

One Young Men’s I was

At a campfire with all

Or most of our Wards

YM (Young Men), were sitting at a

Campfire having dessert, telling stories

and jokes to each other.

Then one of our YM

Leaders reminded us

That we had something special

to show to everyone on camp.

So we all gathered in our

groups to plan what we

Have to show.

My group had to do

with acting. We had

to trace form into something (with every member in our group.)

So we transformed from a

robot to a tank.

Another group had to with

a song. That group my

oldest brother was in. his

group did a song and

that was “Shouting the Battle Cry of Freedom”.

So they gave us a

piece of paper with the

lyrics of this son, so

that everyone can sing and

be a part of the

camp group.

Another group also did a

Song and that was “12 days of Summer Camp”.

There was about 3 more groups

That I did not mention

And they did a skit

Just like the group that

I was in.

Man did we all have

fun that one evening at YM’s Camp.

The story of Jack and Jill

One day early in the morning Jack and Jill’s parents sent them to get a bucket of milk, honey and water.

So off they went to the barn to milk the cow to get a bucket of milk.

After they milked the cow Jack tripped over the stool, but luckily Jill had the bucket of milk.

Jack got up and dust himself off, and off they went to the beehives.

They got their equipment on, and then smoked the bees.

After smoking the bees they collected the honey combs from the hive, and then putted the honey combs in a bucket and then took their equipment off, but Jack decided to take off his clothes too close to the hive’s and got stung in the hand.

All thought he got stung he had shrugged it off.

So off they went to the well, which was just on a hill a 16th of a mile from their house.

“Be careful when we go up and then down that hill, Jack. Because thou had tripped over the stool at the barn, and then got stung by a bee at the beehives.” Jill told Jack.

“Well who knows, thou might have the accident this time” replied Jack.

So Jack took his time, while Jill decided to run up the hill.j

After getting the pale of water, Jack warned Jill to not go too fast down the hill.

Jill ignored Jack, and tripped over a large stone, and Jill started to tumble down the hill.

Jack took the too buckets he had, and carefully went down the hill after Jill.

When Jack got to the bottom of the hill, he had found that Jill had bumped the back of her head.

Jack settled his buckets down and helped her to the house, and then he went back to get the buckets that he had left at the bottom of the hill.

Jack had learnt to take his time and be more cautious, and Jill to walk slower and proper downhill and no one got injured on the journeys following.

The Summarization of the Life Style of the Colonial Times

Cities & Government:

There were two main reasons why cities were established; the Harbor Towns were the towns were mostly/ mainly built for the ships that were or came to the shore; and the seat of government was like the capital city/ home of the government of the country / or state, for example: Washington DC is the State Capital of the USA (United States of America), but Olympia is the City Capital of Washington Territory.

One of the very first buildings that they built in very city, and is also one or the most important building in the City is a Church. The church was, is, a place where the religious people (the people who were religious) could find some peace, comfort, and rest of all their labors on the seventh day of the week (Sunday (the Sabbath Day)).

The streets in the cities where built in a grid like pattern. Unlike today, the streets ran in a line from north to south and east to west. Some cities had two city squares. A city square was a place where the people gather around to listen to the upcoming news or a message that a person might bring.

The markets were mostly near the harbors of the city. The markets back then were very similar to those in today. Each market would sell different things for different prices at the same or different qualities.

The largest city back then in the Revolutionary Wars was not New York (the city not the state), but it was a city called Philadelphia. Philadelphia was a Harbor City; it sent and collected tons of ships of all different shapes and sizes, and bringing all different things as cargo.

The government had two branches; the Governs Council was the upper house of the colonial legislature; the House of Burgesses was the first legislative assembly of elected representatives in North America.

Occupations:

The Barber in the colonial times was very much the same as in today’s Barber’s. They did not only cut and do the hairstyle of their client’s, but also did Bloodletting (putting leaches on their client’s). the Barber’s sing was and still is a cylinder with red and white swirl stripes, the Red representing the blood; the white the bandages. They thought it was right to do it, but we know better today that is it not right to do so, but leaches are still are used for Bloodletting for Medical purposes.

The Cabinetmaker made not only cabinets but also all furniture including cases for the clocks that the Clockmakers made. The Clockmakers made and repaired clocks. The Grocer made and then sold food what the farmers gave to them, in other words the Grocer/ Victualler was like the Grocery store.

The miller grinded corn and wheat and then gave it back to the farmer or person who gave it to the miller to grind. The Silversmith made all the silverware and then sold it. The Blacksmith not only made tools, horse shoes, nails, etc…, he was also the dentist (who just knocked out the aching teeth).

The Tailor made then sold clothes to those who could afford it. The Tanner made saddles, some leather clothes, mugs, buckets, and anything that had to do with leather.

The Cooper had an important job because they made barrels for the food and beverages to be stored in. The Cobbler made shoes that the people wore. Chandler made candles (candlesticks, and candle holders).

The Gunsmith made the guns. The Sailors sailed on ships from coast to coast, trading stuff for other stuff/ like a trader who trades in different countries. The Wigmaker made the wigs that some people wore.

The Apothecary made medicines from various minerals, plants, and herbs and sold them in their store. The Wheelwright made and repaired wheels on all vehicles and wagons. And the Printer printed the news, which when received by the people it was at least 3 days old. Those who could not afford getting food from the Grocer, or clothes from the Tailor, or anything leather from the Tanner, they had to make it themselves. And they had not left or right shoes back in the Colonial times.

Housing & Furniture:

In the colonial times there was no electricity, but there was pluming. And only the rich people’s houses had pluming. The other houses, unlike today’s houses had only one room called the Keeping room. They will do everything in that one room.

They had a kitchen, dining room, bedrooms, bathrooms, and sitting rooms all in one room/ no walls separating the different rooms. And they also had no staircases or in other words, no basement only the attic and the Keeping room.

The salt box was smaller than the Mansions the rich people had, but not much bigger than the regular house. The salt box had addition, connecting little house to it, for the big families who could have afforded that add on. Their houses where mostly made out of wood, but only the mansions were made out of brick or and stone, but that was soon available to the rest of the public.

Their beds had a wooden frame with ropes going across. Their mattresses were just like two bed sheets, one mouth inside the other and sewed together and then stuffed with straw or sometimes with feathers.

The children did house work like cleaning the house, pet care (for e.g. having chickens), doing the dishes, fetching water, shaking out the mattresses, doing laundry, and helping their father out. Their games were like chess or checkers, nine pins (bowling), jack and ball, hoop and stick, etc…

Everyone (including all adults, children, teens, and babies) ate fish, meat, eggs, bacon, wheat, corn, bread, squash, fruit, vegies, and corn meal. And they all drank cider, beer, milk, and water.

Babies were considered ages from ages 0-5, children and teens where from age 6 to whenever they finish school, and adults where when they were married, had a house of their own, or when they had finished their schooling or at least had a career or a job.

When a girl reached the proper age, her parents would give her a box called a “Hope Box”. The “Hope Box’s” purpose was for the girl to collect items for herself for when she moves out of the house/ or for when she gets married.

Girls were considered as an adult when she got married. While the boys were considered as an adult when he had finished his schooling, or had a career (or a job) or got married.

Some girls were already married by the age of 15 while some got married at the age of 23+. Some boys had finished their schooling, or had a career (a job), or married by the age 13, while some only finished their schooling, or had a career (a job), or married by the age of 20+.

When they were at the age of 6, they went to a school called a Dame school. After they had graduated Dame school, they moved on to another school like being an apprentice, or they went to college. The collages were in Yale, Princeton, Harvard, and William & Mary.

The considered Babies wore Puddings. The Pudding was like a giant pillow wrapped around the person who wore it. The Pudding was to reduce the many times of hurting themselves.

Summary of “The Taming of the Shrew”

It starts of when a very drunk person has a little argument with another person. Then a lord came by, and when this lord saw this drunkard he decided to pull a prank on him. So that is what the lord did.

He told his attendant next to him what his going to do. Then idea’s passes between the lord and the attendant, and then came some actors and actress who were willing to take part in the prank. The prank that the lord and his attendant came up with happened to that drunkard.

When the drunkard woke up he was not in an alley but in a Royal chamber instead. And he was being convinced that he was a lord, but he knew that he had not more than one set of clothes. The person who owed the chamber was busy also convincing that the drunkard was a noble not a peasant.

Then came in the nobles page dressed as a woman and pretended to be his wife and that she has been morning for fifteen years. And the drunkard asked the servants what he has been doing for 15 years and they replied “you have been sleeping/ dreaming for all those years”.

Then the drunkard excused the servants so that he could have some time/ sleep with his so pretending wife. So he asked his wife to undress herself and climb into bed with him. But she, he/ the page, refused to and simply replies something like this “I cannot because of you being so drunk all these years.” then came in the actors, actress and a servant who announced the play that was about to begin.

The drunkard so tired that he wanted to sleep instead of watching the play. The first scene of the play was about introducing the background of the play and some of the characters. The drunkard fell asleep during the first scene. The second act introduced some more of the characters in the story and Petruchio gets introduced to the Katherina, the shrew, and gets engaged to her.

The 3rd act is when the newly wedded couple comes home when supper is not ready, and the husband, Petruchio, takes it on his servants and practically starves his new mate until morning. She finally got to eat when her husband was buying some clothes for her from a tailor. Katharina’s sister’s, Bianca, teachers were in competition on who can win enough love to marry Bianca.

One of her teachers prevailed and got married to Bianca while the other teacher gave up and married a wealthy widow. At the wedding ceremony, the wives were in a separate room from where the husbands were. And the husbands betted 200 crowns for whoever’s wife comes when he calls for her by sending a servant instead of them going them self.

Bianca’s and the widow’s husband went first and failed then, Petruchio sent for his wife and won. Then Petruchio asked his wife to get the other two’s wives for them. She obeyed. When the three women came into the room Petruchio asked his wife to tell the other women what a husband expects of a wife. Then Katharina gave her famous speech.

“Fie, fie! Unknit that threatening unkind brow, and dart not scornful glances from those eyes.” meaning that women not look angry at their husbands.

“To wound thy lord, thy king, thy governor. It blots thy beauty as frosts do bite the meads, Confounds thy fame as whirlwinds shake fair buds, And in no sense is meet or amiable.” That treat they husbands with care.

“To painful labour both by sea and land, To watch the night in storms, the day in cold, Whilst thou liest warm at home, secure and safe; And craves no other tribute at thy hands But love, fair looks, and true obedience- Too little payment for so great a debt. Such duty as the subject owes the prince, Even such a woman oweth to her husband.” Meaning that a man/ husband works hard to keep his wife safe and all he is asking in return is love, obedience, and fair looks.

“What is she but a foul contending rebel And graceless traitor to her loving lord? I am ashamed that women are so simple To offer war where they should kneel for peace; Or seek for rule, supremacy, and sway, When they are bound to serve, love, and obey. Why are our bodies soft and weak and smooth, Unapt to toll and trouble in the world, But that our soft conditions and our hearts Should well agree with our external parts?” meaning that woman should not fight in wars, start wars, or have a desire to be above and rule over, but should ask for peace and nurture/ a woman using her body for its proper purposes.

Then Petruchio rewards her by asking her to kiss him.

Speeches are not in my words but the author’s (William Shakespeare) words.

About Our Sun

In week 4 of my science I have learnt many scientific beliefs and religion beliefs of our universe, well with a making sense twist by adding both scientific and religion beliefs about the universe.

Stars:

Many people believe that the middle of our Sun (which is a yellow type of star) was formed by a nuclear explosion, and that is called the Big Bang Theory. Scientist are telling you that the middle of the Sun is the hottest part of the Sun; well possibly true. And that Sun spots are hottest part on the surface of the Sun; not true they are a lot cooler than the rest of the surface of the Sun.

The surface of the sun is 5,778 K, and that equals about 5504.85 degrees Celsius. They also say that the Sun has a few more billion years to go before it dies; that is a lie because of the cool sun spots the sun is able to gain energy. If you do not get what I am saying then answer the following: how does a fire get its energy? Well if gets if from wood, paper gas/ anything you put in a fire is called fuel to a fire except a fire’s enemies like water.

The center of a fire is the hottest part of a fire; same is the edge of the fire. But are the holes in a fire hotter than the rest of the fire? No it is cooler. The holes in a fire let in air so that the fire can breathe, without air it can’t breathe. It is the same with the sun; its hole’s let/ brings in its highly long flammable fuel to burn.
