Remember Tony and Peter, the twin brothers who started singing at the age of five? The little boys are now twenty-five years old and will come back home for the first time since they left ten years ago. They will be singing to celebrate the 100th birthday of our beautiful town.

Tony and Peter are famous for their wonderful voices. They are popular with both young and old people. Three years ago the brothers organized the Garbage Can with their three cousins. The five of them started to write their own songs and have become successful. In the coming concert in Greentown, the Garbage Can is going to sing their best-loved songs and several new ones.

The concert will be at Apple Park at 7 p.m. on October 10. Fans who do not want to miss it should get to the park as early as possible.

The grizzly is the star of our little town in the mountains. Many people visit here for this kind of strong large brown bear. When a grizzly grows up, it may become as heavy as 680 kg. But never think this gigantic animal moves slowly. In fact, the grizzly can run as fast as 55 km an hour.

Though grizzlies look quite big and dangerous, they eat not only meat, but also flowers and grasses. Fish is their favorite food. On summer nights, they enjoy catching fish in the rivers. That is why people usually come watching grizzlies in this season.

Now the number of grizzlies is getting smaller because they have been killed by people who sell grizzly body parts as medicine. Many people of our town are worried about this and have asked for help to save our big friends.

They sleep most of the time in summer.
They have brown hair.

Here is this year’s report on the Top Ten Cities of Animal Island by Best Living.Com



①Goosetown: Climbing up from last year’s second place, Goosetown comes in first for its lovely parks, cultural centers, and comfortable living space.

⑤Lionville: Famous for its culture and beautiful gardens, Lionville is the first city in the north to enter our top five.
⑥Sharkville: With winter sports as good as Oxtown’s, this exciting city is our second best pick in the east.
⑦Foxiand: This city with white beaches could rise higher in the rankings if there were fewer traffic problems.
⑧Goatville: Dropping two places, Goatville should now think more about parks than shopping centers.
⑨Turtleland: New in our top ten, this old fishing town is full of surprises.
⑩Cowtown: Dropping from number seven, Cowtown must clean up the air.

I had a dreama strange dream that has helped me to understand Eric much better.

In the dream, Eric looked angry and said, “Melissa, I have something to tell you.

I’ve lived with Eric for more than five years. He is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. I buy him fish and milk and lots of toy mice once a week. I even bought a small house for him, because he sometimes likes to be left only by himself. I love him with all my heart, and give him all I love.

But what has gone wrong? In the dream Eric said angrily, “I don’t like fish. I don’t like milk. And toy mice? Are you crazy? I’m not a cat. And I don’t want to be a cat, either!” Then he ran back to his small house.

After the dream, I know better: dogs don’t like fish or milk. And surely they do not like toy mice. Most important of all, they will let you know when they are really angry!

The wind keeps blowing.
The door keeps opening.
Will you be with me, my dear Lucy,
When I look for candy
Down there in the dark, dark kitchen?

The wind keeps crying.
The door keeps shaking.
Will you be with me, my dear Lucy,
When I pick up my toy puppy
Out there on the high, high balcony?

Wish you could always be with me
And make them go away with your Do-Re-Me.
I remember last Halloween
They ran away when you started to sing,
Dear Tommy, my little king,
Close your eyes and have a sweet dream.

So please stay with me and sing
To stop them kicking the door, riding the wind,
And pulling me down to their house under the ground.
They’ll go away if you sing here for me,
In a voice that gets a black cat’s hair standing,
The strongest legs shaking, and the window glass breaking.

(ideas from Matthew Sweeney’s poem)

John Keats is one of the greatest English poets. He was born in London in 1795 and started studying to be a doctor when he was only fifteen. But after he finished his studies, he gave up the idea of becoming a doctor and decided to be a poet. He wrote and soon became an important poet.

Keats spent the last three years of his life writing a lot of beautiful poems. But he did not have a happy life at that time. In fact, he got seriously sick, and could not get married to the girl he loved. Still, he wrote about love and beautiful things in his poems. These poems have made many sad people happy. One of his famous poems is about fall. In this poem Keats showed his love for this world even in his bad health. Keats died at the young age of twenty-five, but both the poet and his poems will always be remembered.
