In other countries and cultures we might learn things about them that we find bizarre. However we Americans have weird habits in our culture that are considered weird to many cultures and countries around the world.
Number 1 Root Beer. I love root beer especially the root beer floats. Many countries citizens who have tried root beer hate it though. Why? Well the reason is to many non Americans it tastes like cough syrup. The reason it tastes like cough syrup to them is because root beer is made out of sassafras like flavoring and sassafras the chemical is used in medicine in other countries.
Number 2 White teeth. If you think about our culture here in America we have an obsession with white teeth. Think about it. Every celebrity has a lot shiner teeth than you see on the street. You can even find ultra teeth whitening product in any supermarket. On TV so many commercials are about how to get the perfect white teeth with this product. This focus on dazzling white teeth is strange in other countries though. One example that attest to this is that in Japan you might not find the Crest 3d Whitening strips in their supermarket that you would find here in places like Walmart.
Number 3 Chocolate Wars which is better. Here in America we have a lot of chocolate brands to choose from, from Hershey to Reese’s . In the UK one popular chocolate is the Cadbury brand. Many people from the US and the UK will say that chocolate brands in the UK are better. They say it’s better because chocolate in the UK has more cocoa bean in it than the US. While the US version of chocolate has more sugar. The flavor of chocolate overseas is said to taste richer and not overly sweet. A Hershey bar is the complete opposite as it has less cocoa bean and more sugar in it so many from across the pond say it’s too sweet. In fact Hershey even seems to not want to change its recipe even when trying to make British like chocolate for us Americans. Hershey has the license to produce Cadbury chocolate in the US. People were not impressed by the Hershey version though. With many saying it tastes no different than a regular Hershey bar. Whatever the case, chocolate between these two are different; which is better is one‘s own personal opinion.
Nature is something I’m fascinated by because it is all around us and I want to explore it by hiking and admiring it. I would love to see the Redwood National Forest in California one day 🔜. I have been in Sedona and crossed a creek on a log twice! Nature is so peaceful. These are pictures I took outside in Nature.
I do my bathroom room and my room. I use a vacuum and mop my bathroom. I make my bed and tidy up. I use Comet for the toilet and disinfecting wipes for the container and the toilet. I water the plants that need to be watered. I do laundry every Saturday. I load the dishwasher and empty it, too. It makes me feel good to get things done and I feel better about myself. I think I like cleaning them all now because it will help us. It’s important so we aren’t sloppy and you can learn from it.

Hello, my name is Daniel and I’m going to be writing about what I’ve learned over the break.
I learned how to use Zoom, Duo, and Google calendar to get assignments. I learned Duo from my friend Kim so we could talk face to face. I learned Zoom from Justin, the Computer teacher at SEEDs and I learned Google calendar on my own.
I use Zoom to take martial arts fitness classes with Mrs. Lee and with Mr. Benton who is my teacher for Tai Kwon Do classes. While it’s true that I can’t practice the practical aspects of Tai Kwon Do, such as self-defense, sparring, and board breaks, I can get practice in on my form and weapons.
I use Google calendar to get informed about what’s going on at Seeds for Autism.
I had my first zoom chat with Michele (Newsletter instructor), Francis and Brianna. I was included in the Zoom meeting with my peers from Seeds. I had to wait for recognition by the host of the meeting. I never knew how to navigate Zoom until I watched Justin’s educational video (that was on the Google Calendar) on how to use the application for conferring with colleagues who might be on a business trip for example. Google calendar has helped me stay in the loop.
I am staying active and connected during the outbreak of COViD 19 using online activities with Seeds and Tai Kwon Do with Mr. Benton and Mrs. Lee. Missing seeing folks in person. Hope see everyone in 21 days.
I got Cosmo when he was a puppy. Thru puppyhood, he was mischievous: licking the kitchen drainpipe, bringing rocks into the house and chewing holes in our underwear. He loved to run after bunnies in our yard. Once, he caught a dove in his mouth and brought it inside to show my mom. I remember seeing him for the first time: Christmas 2006. My dad brought this BIG box into the room and set it down in front of me. I opened it and there was this adorable ball of fluff inside, wagging his little tail. He was there when I had my first boyfriend at 17 and first kiss. but , that’s a story for another time. He used to be this active dog, always pawing at the door to be let outside, so he could chase away the bunnies in the yard. Then , he lost his sight in both eyes and his hearing too. So, at the ripe old age of 13, we made the decision no pet owner wants to make: my mom and I took him to the Humane Society’s vet clinic to end his suffering. Mom fed him multiple treats to keep him calm. When we first entered the room, he began pacing around it and the vet tech administered something to make him sleepy and shaved some of his fur off in order to put a catheter in his leg. Then the vet entered the room and inserted a needle into Cosmo’s leg that contained the euthanasia drug. It was over in a matter of minutes. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room: I bawled my eyes out over Cosmo’s body. The pain of letting go is something I’m still dealing with. But I’ll always have my memories of him.
There was a hunchback named Tyler, who was shunned due to his appearance, until, one day, he saw a young woman named Ginger, who had a beautiful smile. They decided to fly to Milan and spend the summer there, basking in the sunlight and ocean waves. They also agreed to get married in Frankfort, Germany. They adopted quintuplets from France and also adopted a litter of 115 dalmatians. They lived in a huge mansion in Barcelona, Spain. They went skydiving in Japan and dived for pearls too. They hiked to the top of Mount Everest, where they held a wine tasting party. They also learned how to operate a twin engine jet ski. They ziplined across the Grand Canyon and bungee jumped into a dormant volcano. They did a lot of wild and crazy things together. They decided to work together in a bakery and created the world’s biggest red velvet cake. It was the size of a mountain. They invited everyone in Eastern Europe to eat the cake. Tyler and Ginger went white water rafting down the Colorado River in June for 2 weeks in a pair of small boats.
