Battleship New Jersey Trip

Today on this Friday April 18,2008 my class (Mrs.Richardsons class) went to Battleship New Jersey. When we first got there the ship was huge it made me sick to my stomach. The boat was bigger than my school! We saw where the people that were in the war ate and slept. There beds were no bigger than our computer desk. The boat still had there cannons and machine guns. Who built this ship? How did they build it this big? Why did they build it this big? It was kinda smelly in there.


Tiny Dog Saves Baby From Rattlesnake

(AP) MASONVILLE, Colo. Zoey is a Chihuahua, but when a rattlesnake lunged at her owners' 1-year-old grandson, she was a real bulldog.

Booker West was splashing his hands in a birdbath in his grandparents' northern Colorado back yard when the snake slithered up to the toddler, rattled and struck. Five-pound Zoey jumped in the way and took the bites.

"She got in between Booker and the snake, and that's when I heard her yipe," said Monty Long, the boy's grandfather.

The dog required treatment and for a time it appeared she might not survive. Now she prances about.

"These little bitty dogs, they just don't really get credit," Booker's grandma Denise Long told the Loveland Daily Reporter-Herald.
