The Fox and the Crow 

Many years ago before you and I were born, there was a fox. He lived in the woods. The fox was ALWAYS hungry! He ate and he ate until his paws were raw and sore. Then he ate and ate and ate some more. He crunched up the bones and licking his paws shouted,

“I’m hungry!”

He moaned, he groaned, he mumbled and he grumbled. He rolled on his belly and it began to rumble. He cried,

“I’m SO hungry!”

Six seals found stranded on a beach were freed into the sea yesterday.

They had been found 6 months ago on the east coast of Britain. They were in a poor state when discovered.

Today, when they were released back into the sea, they carried satellite tracking systems. These have been attached to them to monitor their progress back in the wild.

We all know chocolate is everyone’s favourite snack but on a hot day, what a pain, it MELTS!

Well some teenage high school girls have come up with an idea that may stop all that.

Whilst experimenting with chocolate in their Chemistry classes,

they discovered that adding a substance called glycerine stops chocolate melting. That’s great news for those living in hot places like India.

Now soldiers in the desert will be able to enjoy a chocolate feast without it melting away!!

Hot Chocolate Delight!
