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.

V8s at the clipsal 500

Results of the Clipsal 500

With two fords starting on the front row it wasn't a good look for the holden fans especially with Lowndes and Whincup on pol. but with strong competition like Garth Tander on there backs it would be an exciting start to the season.

But after the first race the Ford fans were looking shaken as there were two holdens on the podium (YEAH!!!) but Jamie Whincup still managed to clench first. With the closest kiwi being Shane Van- Gisbergen in the SP tools ford falcon.

In the second race Whincup still managed to hold his lead but there was pressure on his back from two strong drivers from the Toll racing team (they're holden). So it was a great weekend for racing and some great results.

My Favourite artist

Marc Chagall

Marc Chagalls images were mostly based around his current time and his childhood dreams.

I really like his paintings because of the emotion he put in to them and actally alot of the times you'll see a chicken hidden in his paintings. He did alot of paintings about he and his wife and they were full of colour. When his wife died he painted her on her death bed with basically only black and white.

School stuff

Things at school are just getting sorted out. It's just work as normal, Yr 7s are getting to know everyone and the school. Fairfield is a great school and everyone is friendly.

Just have a look at this website and you'll see how great Fairfield is.

We have every thing from a radio station and a television studio to an astroturf and a cateen.

Rugby dancing to the tune of broadcasters creates problems

Sixteen thousand to a rugby league pre-season warm up jolly at North Harbour Stadium. No, I'm not joking. And that figure on the back of eleven thousand watching an earlier Warriors’ trial in Hamilton.
Those crowd numbers will of course have the critics preaching how rugby union bosses should be worried and hitting the panic button.
Well sorry about this but union bosses should have already hit the panic button over the pathetic crowd numbers turning up at Super 14 games.
But are they really that concerned? Let’s face it, gate takings pale in comparison to the almighty broadcasting dollar. And as long as rugby dances to the tune of broadcasters then the problems like playing in February, night games, and overall rugby overkill will continue to drive attendances down.
There's also the small matter of the best cricket team in the world, India, being here until early April.

This is all the info about sport from Hamish Mckay
