Pink-understanding 

In a natural disaster the best thing to do is not panic because by panicking all your doing is wasting your time. Every minute counts and your life could be gone by getting scared and not thinking straight.

Bush fires often occur more when the weather is hot and dry.

which country/state has the most bush fires?

What is the world record for the most bush fires in a month?

I understand that it’s not good to panic in a serious emergency because your just wasting your time. You have to think logic about what your going to do to be safe and avoid getting hurt.

Well you better get a move on before they do leave without you the office lady said.

Book review- IT

What the books about:

an ancient, shape-shifting evil that emerges from the sewer every 27 years to kill one of the town’s children. Banding together over the course of one horrifying summer, the friends must overcome their own personal fears to battle the murderous, bloodthirsty clown known as Penny wise.

IT is a very interesting and scary book, I’d recommend it to those who are into horror and death but if you don’t like horror this is probably not the book for you because it’s pretty intense! I also wouldn’t recommend it for children under 12.
