Virtual pets are sooo cool

Hi everyone. I have just adopted a pet not a real one but a virtual pet from It is a German shepard. Check it out down the bottom of tis page. His name is storm and he likes to play with the frisbee. Oh and by the way if you adopt a pet you can get together with friends play with their pets. There is no limit of what you can do on Foo pets. So you can check it out for yourself and have a fun time playing with your own Foo pet.

Why I am needed on this earth

Were will I be in ten years? Well I just will be taking it one day at a time for now but first off I hope to join one of the forces. But the one that catches my eye the most is the air force and becoming a parachute instructor but I would need A minimum of school C or 12 NCEA basic level 1 credits in English and Mathematics. It would be a tough road but my Dad has been in the forces and says it gives you a real insight to life. He also told me how when you go full time you get accomidation, food new mates and guess what ... you get paid for it.
