Kidsday: Girl Scouts' good deeds
In Girl Scouts, we often put other people's needs before ours. We like to do good deeds. Here are some examples of some of the good deeds that we've done.
We sang at a nursing home. Everyone sang a couple of songs together and at the end everyone at the nursing home was smiling and clapping loudly.
We also donated books to the Ronald McDonald House. We donated more than 500 books. The kids were so happy.
Once the Girl Scouts surprised the teachers with cool decorations. We made tissue-paper flowers and paper roses for the teachers' luncheon in our school district. They enjoyed it very much.
Another time we helped younger Scouts make bath beads. They are beads of soap that you put under water and you crunch them and they feel and smell very good.
Last but not least, we had a garage and bake sale. We baked good desserts and sold things that were in good shape but which we didn't need any longer.
If you love helping people and participating in activities that are fun, you should join Girl Scouts. They work together to help people who aren't as fortunate as
Recommending two phone apps
I like using new and different apps for my iPhone and other products.
I really like Instagram. Here's how it works: You take a picture. You have different effects options to choose from. You then post the photo and add a caption or tag a person in the picture. Tagging notifies the person that he or she is in a shared picture.
Instagram allows people to follow one another. People can comment on the different pictures. Instagram is a social network of images.

CSR Racing is a lot of fun. You pick a car you can afford. Then you can upgrade your car with Nitrous. Nitrous gives your car a boost to go faster. You can customize your paint job. When you beat the crews, you get money and then you can buy new cars. Crews are different teams you try to beat. And if you beat the crew leader you get the crew's cars. There are all sorts of websites you can check out that have cheats and other shortcuts for you.
