Hello everyone, I haven’t posted on my blog in years. I have been thinking about posting more stuff to it, but i have never got around to doing, so I am shutting this blog down. I have created another blog on Tumblr, so if you want to follow my blog, go to http://orangesoda2000.tumblr.com/. This wordpress blog will shut down on April 18th.



Today I took pictures of some signs of people who want to be courageous and help the environment. I also took a picture of job applications that are looking for courageous people. I also found a poem about courage:

The courage I need
I need the courage to control my instincts
The courage I need to face my fears
I need the courage to see the future
The courage I need to compare facts and opinion
I need the courage to think right
The courage I need to see if my friends trust me
I need the courage to ask questions
The courage I need to survive
I need the courage to convince myself to do something
I have to prepare myself for anything that comes up!

I did not make this poem, all credit of this poem goes to Daniel Vango.

I think that the author of this poem is right because courage is a very important thing and without it, we wouldn’t have the courage to do great things like the courage that the author had to make that poem.

How many bottles and cans?

Leave a comment

We are adding another $82.40 which bring us to $311.65! Can you figure out how many bottles and cans that is (each one is worth 5 cents)? I was confused since it is not school and i haven’t done math in a while,but my mom helped me get it. To make it easier, see if you can figure out how many bottles and cans $300 would be.

It is over 6000 bottles and cans! (to see the answer highlight it)

Teachers bring more bottles and cans

Leave a comment

Today we returned $53.45 in bottles and cans which adds up to $229.25 so now I’m sure to win. Some of the money was from my wonderful teachers so thank you to Mrs. Lefler, Mrs. Waggoner, Mrs. Costello and, Mrs. Mitchell(who is my brother’s teacher). Isn’t the world so much better and smarter with teachers?

you found me(:

More Nintendo DS Cheats and Glitches


Here are some more useful cheats and strange glitches for the Nintendo DS:

Super Mario 64: if you fall from a high place, press R when you are close to the ground, and you won’t get hurt.

How to get manaphy in Pokemon Ranger: After you beat the game go to the ranger net on the main menu while holding down R,X and, left on the D-pad. Then on the ranger net menu screen, click enter password and type in P8M2-9D6F-43H7. Then select the mission “rescue the precious egg!” Once you complete that mission you will need Pokemon diamond/pearl and another DS (like a friend’s DS). On the first DS with Pokemon ranger click check the egg and then click “send the egg”. On the second DS go to the main menu and click receive egg then follow the on-screen instructions.

Pokemon diamond: 1. To get the mystery gift, go to the Jubilife City TV station on the 3rd floor. There should be a guy who wants to interview you. Respond yes then type in “everyone happy Wi-fi connection”. Then, save and turn the DS off, and you should now have mystery gift which lets you get Pokemon at DS  special events or from Pokemon Battle Revoulition for the Wii. 2. No music glitch. Once you beat the game go to turnback cave and then come out and there should be no music.

New Super Mario Bros: Press L and R at the same time and you can play as Luigi.

I hope you found these cheats useful.

Leave a comment

This summer I am going to do another bottle and can fundraiser to help the TSA by returning empty bottles and cans to the store for money and there is a contest so whoever gets the most cans wins a PSP (a video game system). Last year the prize was a Wii (I won!!!) and this year I am trying to get more bottles than last year (over $370). so far I have made $80.40 and In the picture I am sitting with more than 1000 bottles and cans from Mr. Kahn from Seigel, Kelleher, and Kahn

Thank you Mr. Kahn!

Very strange weather

a few days ago when I was looking out the window it was a normal day and then I saw rain and I said “that’s strange” and even stranger it was huge chunks of hail. So big that my friend’s mom’s car got dented  and if you live near here you’ll know and I posted this because that was very strange and I put a picture to show how big the hail was.

about shortcuts for computers (sorry, Windows only)


Today, I realized that lots of people may not know how to use their computer fully like my grandfather know that there are shortcuts to save time so that’s why I have shortcuts and if you have a problem with your computer you can leave a comment on this post. here are some shortcuts these shorctuts work on most windows-based programs





ctrl+alt+delete=reboot/windows task manager(task manager is something that shows your programs and you can end them if they freeze or something or you can turn off your computer)

ctrl+x=cut  -a mnemonic device (to help you remember) is to think as an X being a pair of scissors

ctrl+c=copy (C stands for copy)


I hope these shortcuts help you and I will keep posting shortcuts on this post.

My Meme answers

1 Comment

Laura tagged me for a meme.

Here are my answers.

1. in your opinion, what does it mean to make a difference?

It means you are helping someone or making something better like picking up trash and putting it in the garbage or saving a kitty or something.

2. What is an example of a unique way to make a difference?

A unique way to make a difference would be doing a good deed for someone when they don’t even know

3. Who has made a difference in YOUR life this week?

This week my nana has made a difference by emptying the dishwasher twice for me and a lady at the store gave us quarters to buy gumballs.

4. If I didn’t have a blog, would you still be making a difference?

Of course I would still be making a difference but the longer you have your blog up the more people look at it so if you don’t have a blog less people will be encouraged.

5. What is your favorite thing about the internet?

My favorite thing about the internet would be that it can be used for many things like having fun, e-mailing and chatting, and of course blogs because they are like journals that you can use for anything.

sending letters to soldiers from our classroom


today in computers our class learned about the twenty five days to make a difference page and how blogs are used. if you go to twenty five days to make a difference you’ll see that it has a classroom challenge about doing a good deed with techonology so we did a good deed by sending cards to soilders at letssaythanks.com sponsored by Xerox. When we finished our cards we went to www.freerice.com and we donated lots of rice.

Free Rice

My friend told me about this cool rice game where you can donate rice depending on how many word questions you get right. And you don’t need to pay or anything! It’s just a word learning game and the more you get right the more you donate to poor people who can’t get food. http://www.freerice.com/ today (12/8/07)I donated 3500 grains of rice
