Well, I guess they can keep trying to figure out where it came from. I am sure it came from China, but does it really matter? What are they going to do about it? It is already world-wide.
@Mylee yah you must have watched the wrong video. But yes, I think it is so dumb that they are still trying to impeach him. It's just political theatre. They just want to impeach him so that he can never run for any office again. If Biden really wanted to make America better and have unity, he would pardon Trump.


WHO officials are working in China to try to find out where the virus came from. They are investigating different places like seafood markets and such.

@ Everyone

Ok, does anyone think [b] looks like a thumbs up? if so i might use it as one. plz be honest.

@Belwyn R would probably take a lot of clarification to people you send it to (or comment to). You will have to explain what the random "b" you put in the comment is for.. lol..XD I could be wrong, but that is just my opinion XDDDDD.

@ Grace D.

ok, thanks :)

Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day, everybody! Enjoy your day!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!!!

Yeah, Happy Valentines Days!

Yeah, Happy Valentines Days!

Yup, Happy Valentine's Day!

(Goodness! It's hard coming up with an original thing to say!)
Is anyone doing anything special that they'd' like to share? My sister is making a nice dinner for my mom and dad to eat outside.

@London S


We don't really celebrate Valentine's Day. And we definitely couldn't have eaten outside, because it was snowing and the wind chill was -21!!!!!!! XD

@ Riley D

How much snow did y'all get in TX? We got almost blizzard-like snow in OK and in some places it's drifted a couple feet deep and in some places it's just several inches.
@ Bethy we did a donut puzzle that we got for Christmas and ate a special dessert that my mom made. It's kinda hard to explain, but it's like a Valentine's day envelope with a little heart on the front, made out of pie crust, with cherry pie filling inside.


Riley: Yeah, it was much colder then we thought, but they still enjoyed it. We don't celebrate Valentine's day much either, (my mom just gets us a special treat from the store) this year we did more then usual! (I forgot it was Valentines day until someone in my family told me, and I was absolutely shocked!
KN: Wow! That sound really good!

@ Riley

here it has been like -8 every day for the past 2 weeks. I couldn't even imagine -21!

@ Sarah F

Wow! That's COLD! Here we've been thinking its really cold, but it's only 53!

@ bethy s

Whoa, warm! Here it's been in the negative teens.

It's -2 rn......

It's -2 rn......

this is Mylee

not in the negatives phew but 7 degrees.


Where do you live!?! (don't answer, it was a rhetorical question) I don't know if I could survive that. When I was on a cruise to Alaska, we all thought it as pleasantly cool at 72 degrees, but the natives were complaining about how hot it was when we went on shore!

this is Mylee

72 degrees is nice weather LoL. Bethy S we live in Texas not going to say were except kinda by Dallas but not exactly XD. Its never this cold normally snows once a year or every other . Like 1 inch but this year 8 inches !! I don't like the cold though can't wait for it to be over XD !

@ London

Wow! I remember last year it was great because we got MORE then 10 inches of WATER! It was so much FUN!!! We ended the drought that had been going on for like, 7 or 13 years! (Or something like that, most of my lifetime, but it might be more) I think we may have another drought, but oh gets used to it...XD

@Bethy S

Do you mean you only got 10 inches THE WHOLE YEAR?!?!?!? Sometimes we get that much in a month! One time we got that much in a weekend! Many floods and very scary. I don't ever remember having a drought.

@ Addie L

Yes, I do mean that. You get that much in a month? WOW!
