Tigers, or Panthera tigris tigris are almost extinct. The largest cat of the cat family, the tiger is a majestic creature. Tigers from head to tail can be seven to nine feet. In other words, tigers can be up to three point three
meters! Unlike other large cats, tigers love the water. As all big cats are, they are mammals. There are eight different kinds of tigers, but unfortunately three species went extinct in the 1900s. Mostly, tigers keep to themselves and don’t bother humans.
Although tigers mostly leave us alone, we, as humans, have not left them in peace. People hunt them so they can display them as trophies, or use them in traditional Chinese medicines. Their reddish orange coats with stripes are a trademark. So even though a usual life length for a healthy tiger is eight to ten years, most lives are cut short. Currently, there are more tigers in captivity than in the wild. Tigers have a fearful reputation, and can their roar can be heard from two miles away, but even the most mighty of animals fall to the hands of humans.
Tigresses give birth in litters of two to six. When cubs are born, they are raised by the mother, with no help from the father. The cubs stay with the mother until they are two or three, then find their own territories. In conclusion, tigers are pretty awesome animals and we should protect them.

A popular food in America is pizza. Pizza can be made multiple ways. Chicago style pizza, my personal favorite is often called deep dish pizza. Deep dish is thick, with lots of tomato sauce and a large amount of mozzarella cheese, and a bread crust. New York style pizza, which is where pizza in America began is the opposite of Chicago pizza. The pizza is very thin, and three large slices may not satisfy you, unlike deep dish where one piece is more than enough.

I have learned this week that images cannot be used willy nilly without proper use. In the past, if I wanted to se an image I would simply take a screen shot. Now I know how to use the proper tools that need to be used to have an image.
My Great Aunt Fran was an amazing woman. She was kind, funny, and always up for a laugh. Our family would gather at her house for Thanksgiving every year. Sadly, she smoked and got lung cancer. She passed away from the cancer in May. Even though she is gone, I know she is looking out for me. I have permission to use this picture. Copyright belongs to my family.
I chose the widget jet pack by word press as my new widget. I looked up widget and it is supposed to speed up image downloads, keep track of how many people visit my website, and helps protect my site from hackers and such. I am excited to see what happens.
