RPC ENG 5 L75


Hello! Today as an english essay draft from Mrs.Fish wants me to write about the following subject: Writing Assignment: Write one paragraph on the following topic: What is your favorite way to learn and do schoolwork?

So here it is!

My most favorite way to do schoolwork would be when I am writing essays and my music is cranked up really loud. Because I love my music especially when it’s one of most favorite songs. I also enjoy writing my essays because I enjoy typing because it’s sort of like exercise for my fingers for when I’m doing math because I have to write with a pencil. Math is my least favorite subject thought. Another reason I enjoy doing schoolwork with music on is because for some reason it makes me concentrate better which is sort of weird. But I fine doing the essay’s is much easier than the rest of the work. I also like doing my schoolwork with something or someone working or just sitting beside me like when the cat jumps on my lap to come get some attention or when the dogs come to sit besides me when there is a thunderstorm or sometimes they two are just looking for attention. I also enjoy it when my sisters work besides me. Sometimes we tease each other about our spelling mistakes or we get distracted and start arm wrestling but the armwrestling never slowed us down.

Another way I enjoy doing my schoolwork is when I do it infront of the fire place during the winter. Or just doing schoolwork outside.

But my most favorite part of RPC is that I get to interact with other students which I find is fun. I remember once When I was doing schoolwork towards the starting of summer vacation there was a horse that had got out and was walking along the highway which is the road our home is on. Then me and dad took the quad along the highway until we were out of our property and walked to catch the horse yet we did not. The our neighbor Pete just happened to be going by and sometimes people call him a horse whisperer or tractor Pete. Then Pete got the horse and brought it too our place and we tied it with a rope to an old fence post then we called to owner because it was one of school buddies grandpa’s horse so then they came too get it. I’m not sure what gender the horse was. My sister olivia is the family horse fan and she was being homeschooled she would of been able to see the horse! But it’s her problem she did not want to be homeschooled then! Now she thought.

I also doing my schoolwork in the tractor when dad is planting, cutting or bailing hay. I also enjoy doing schoolwork in the truck when were going on trips like to get our ram Dodge.

So that’s it! Hope you enjoyed this rough draft!

Improving My Goat Business


Hello! As another dad essay dad wants me to write about things I could do to improve my goat buissnes.

So here it is!

Something I did not know is that a goat needs to be 75 to 80 pounds to have a baby.
When a baby was born with it’s sack is called a an call, which I find is sort of weird name.

Here is a list of poisonous plants for goats.

  1. Black Cohosh
  2. Bloodroot
  3. Carolina Jessamine
  4. Celandine
  5. Poppy
  6. Bleeding Heart
  7. Fumewort
  8. Hellebore
  9. Larkspur
  10. Lupine
  11. Corn Cockle
  12. Ivy
  13. Lily of the Valley
  14. White Snakeroot
  15. Milkweed PS. There is a lot of Milkweed in our region but our goats don’t seem to eat Milkweed so that’s good.
  16. Lantana
  17. Sneezeweed
  18. St.John’s Wort
  19. Wolfsbane
  20. Staggerweed
  21. Parsnips
  22. Boxwood
  23. Carolina Allspice
  24. Oleander
  25. Rhododendron
  26. Wild Black Cherry
  27. Wild Hydrangea
  28. Black Locust
  29. Buckeye
  30. Cherry I don’t think their necessarily poisonous I just think goats try to eat cherries whole and choke on the seeds.
  31. Chokecherry we’ve never had chokeberries in the same pasture as the goats.
  32. Elderberry
  33. Laurel
  34. Johnson Grass There is lot’s of this grass around but the goats seem to eat and be fine so I think this one’s a mistake
  35. Buckwheat We grow buckwheat but we’ve never fed one to a goat so now I know to no do that.
  36. Horsenettle
  37. Buttercups they also grow in our region but the sheep get those before the goats do normally.
  38. Pinetrees of course there is pine trees here but I know they don’t eat the leaves so now I know why they don’t eat it. One thing they do is the one’s with horns rub their horns against the trees until their bark is of then they leave it alone weird?

You can have 4 goats per acre. And one goat can fit in about a 5×10 feet backyard or if you feed it hay you can keep it in a barn.

The world’s largest goat was a British Saanen named Mostyn Moorcock, owned by Pat Robinson of Ewyas Harold, Hereford & Worcester, UK. It reached a shoulder height of 44 in and an overall length of 66 in.

The main way I tell my breeds is by color and color pattern like Boer goats have a brown face with a white stripe in the middle. Kiko goat are completely black normally but can technically be any color.

I created a way to tell breeds. I use horns to identify my goats and tell their breed. Like Salt has long semi curled horns that are light brown and have little lumps every inch. And my secondary buck called Ron Maclean’s horns are dark brown and grow behind the head like Salt’s horns then instead of curling back to the head they go sideways, and it’s like that on all of the purebred Boer goats I’ve ever had.

Things that will help me improve my goats health is giving them some alfalfa pellets with some molasses on them.

During the winter I should maybe pen the goats separate from the rest of the herd except for the older babies so I can wean them. Then I will be able to give the moms grain so they can get more fat and the goats that will go for meat will still be grass fed!

I should start dehorning my goats so when we are foot trimming them or etc their horns don’t stab us. Like once two year ago I got a black eye from our former buck Don Cherry’s horns although they where already partially cut. So they aren’t sharp anymore. Sadly I could not find any pictures of him. But anyways he looked something like this except his horns where curled into one on the left side of his head. He was a purebred Saanen wich is dairy breed. Since we used to be a big dairy goat farm we used to have a lot of dairy goats. Now I’ve got two Boer bucks which are a meat breed my goal is to keep the girls with the most Boer genetics so soomeday I can get to the point of having all purebred Boer goats.

Saanen Dairy Goats

And to finish it of here is some goat meme’s!

RPC Science 5 Lesson 110


Hello! Today in science I learned about three main things:

  1. How to make a pinhole camera
  2. How to print images from a pinhole camera
  3. And how to make the mixture that lets you make the picture.

So first of all too make a pinhole camera you need a box that is the size of shoe box or smaller. Then by pinning a hole in the camera you create the pinhole part of the camera. Then you cut a half inch square on the opposite side of the pinhole and about an inch away from the pinhole you cut another half inch square and then you cover it with duct tape. On the opposite side of the second square you can but your piece of paper there. Then before you can use it you will need to make some sort of lid over the pinhole so you can let light in when you want. You can rather buy the mixture or create the mixture yourself with everyday house things. Youll first need.

  • 500ML’s of water
  • 10g’s of dried mint
  • 10g’s of baking soda
  • 2g vitamin C tablets
  • 5ml’s of lemon juice

Since you probably won’t understand the way I was going to explain how to mix it i’ll let you watch the video I watched. And in this video it will also show you how to print the pictures.

So that’s it hope you enjoyed!

My Vacation To New Liskeard


Hello! Today dad wanted me to write about our vacation to New Liskeard!

So here it is!

We left on sunday morning at 7 am to go to Earlton to see Eastern Canada’s biggest Bison farm called Bison Du Nord which is a french name and we got a special tour because we’re friends and they sell Bison on Click Fork which is my mom’s business. And Pierre the man who started it all in 1972 son Charles gave me a Bison skull! Here’s a picture:

It needs a little TLC to get the horn back on the actual skull but some PL glue will do the trick! And their Bison are grass fed and finished just like our cows! Except for this guy he get’s treats!

Here is some actual Grass fed Bison

After that we went to an RB and B type of place to drop of our suitcases then once everything was figured out we went to a park there was a mini putt center with a very easy yet hard looking 18th hole.

And then there was this super cool lollypop looking seat that swings up and down here is a video of me playing on it, and since it’s pretty cold by the lake I had to wear my jacket.

Then I watched some tractor pull videos and went to bed to get rested up for tomorrow! Here is some tractor pull video’s:

The next morning we went to the New Liskeard Kubota dealer and went to look at some tractors!

This one is a M6S 111 which is the M6 Special version with 110 horsepower. The normal M6 looks like this:

There wasn’t one a the dealer so this is a picture from google.

Then there was an M7-172 which is the premium version (shown in the picture). The M7 2 series is technically the ranchers edition. This tractor has 170 horsepower.

Then there was an M8-201 which is the second biggest tractor Kubota makes with 200 horsepower. This tractor is part of the series of Versatile Made Kubota tractors I was talking about in these post: https://schoolfarm.home.blog/2020/07/02/the-history-of-versatile/ https://schoolfarm.home.blog/2020/05/08/versatille-is-making-tractors-for-kubota/

Then in the used section I learned about a new tractor loader brand called HARDY which a was on an older Massey Ferguson.

The there was a Massey Ferguson 850 combine which is the slightly newer version of our Massey 550 combine.

The combine had a flat tire so it looks a little more beat up than it actually is.

And then there was a used Kubota side by side.

Before Kubota bought out this dealer it used to be a Massey Ferguson and Kubota

dealer and that’s why there is so much Massey Ferguson equipment.

We then headed down to Cobalt to go on hiking trail. With some pretty nice scenery.

There was a man that fell of the cliff and died here in 2010 at the age of 20 so mom was keeping a close eye on us when we were at the cliff. We then went on to a town called Haileybury to find a spot to have lunch at. We then found a park by a waterfront when we found this statue that represented a lady saving this man’s child from the big fire.

We then walked to the marina in search of washrooms which we did find there luckily. On our way out of the washrooms the girls spotted a stand that had some information about Haileybury. And turns out it used to be a city that was so big it had an NHL team! but then there was this massive fire that burnt down three quarters of the city which caused the team to have to shut down. And only some of the former cities buildings are left like two banks the court of Justice and more buildings. 900 years ago Haileybury used to be part of the great lake Erie!

We then went too explore the town and found Canada’s largest house!

Sadly the current owners/ the township did not allow visitors. The original owners were not done building it when the township had to take over because of the tax rates. I wonder why the township has not done anything with it? It’s about half done being built so just imagine how big it could be if it was complete! It could be North America’s largest house or even bigger!

And it turns out Haileybury is the home of the writer of one of me and my dads most favorite book series!

I normally read some of his books mainly during the winter because I have extra time to do things like that or whenever I can or think of it. Although dad never went to any Hardy Boys events he was a major fan a red almost all the books that were released in his childhood and whenever he seen the library had new hardy boy books or herd that there where new hardy books he had to get them! But he does not really read the books anymore. But that’s because he is always trying to follow politics and farming news.

We then dropped the girls of at the New Liskeard mall to go shopping and me and dad took a look around at what other farmers were doing.

This farmer already finished harvesting a field of Soybeans! The Soybeans at home don’t look as ripe as the ones in New Liskeard!

We then stopped at the New Holland dealer.

They had the local snowmobile clubs old groomer and new groomer parked there but I did not take pictures of them because they are highly modified and aren’t really the type of tractors I’m into. We then headed back to the Kubota dealer again to take a better look at a Horst running gear we were thinking of buying for our bale wagons that we did not buy. We then found a Great Plains Spartan Air Seeder that was hiding.

We then headed to the tourist house that had a museum of agriculture that was of course closed. But we did get to see a very old grader

After that we went home and met up with the girls to have some Pizza for super. we then watched Lord Of The Rings and then went to bed. The next morning we went to the Thornloe cheese factory to pick up some cheese and butter for Click Fork, and we seen a mini grader!

And someone forgot their Pepsi on it!

We then drove to our friend George Posh’s place to pick up some flour for Click Fork. And on the way there we seen quite the machinery. At the John Deere dealer there was two 9R’s wich is John Deere’s biggest tractor series.

We then seen a super big cash crop operation that had a lot of giant tractor’s like Case Ih Steiger’s and Magnum’s!

We then arrived at George’s and while George and my parents where loading the flower I asked If could go explore and take pictures of his tractors!

This tractor George is restoring is one of the very first Oliver tractors a Oliver Hart Parr!

Then this is his biggest tractor a Deutz Fahr DX 160 wich has 160 horsepower I believe.

Then this is his combine a John Deere 4420 which is the next size up after the 4400. My dad’s first combine was actually a John Deere 4400. The man we bought our new Ram from had a John Deere 4400 that was going to go to the scrap yard.

We named the Ram Dodge because the truck company Ram owns the truck and car company called Dodge and because he’s the typical Ram that you might have to Dodge away from sometimes. But he does love his attention just don’t get him mad.

And on that trip we stopped at the Kubota dealer in North Bay and looked at two Kubota M5-091’s which have 90 horsepower.

The only difference between them is the transmission and the one does not have a cab.

George also had a John Deere 4400 that he uses for parts on his 4420.

He has a Deutz that was custom painted Orange redish coloured wich he normally hooks up to his bailer.

He also had another old Deutz that needs a new engine and cab but in my terms that means it’s dead. I also learned about another loader brand called LEON. George said if he could get a new engine and cab it would be a nice loader tractor to have. I wonder how the cab broke of.

Then this is George’s wife Mary’s loader John Deere 1830.

Then George had his own John Deere 1830 that he uses.

This one could have a loader too but I guess they took it off.

As I was walking around the shed I got chased by some turkeys!

I then made my way to his Cockshuts without those turkeys coming after me.

George’s first Cockshut is a Cockshut 35. When George was a kid his dad had bought a brand new Cockshut 40 wich is the next size up and for christmas he got the toy model. He had got rid of the toy then 15 years ago he went looking all over his old farm and where he grew up but he did not find it. So then he went to the local AGCO dealer (AGCO still made tractors during that time.) The guy at the dealer said the last one sold was 2,150 $ so he gave up but he hopes that he might find it someday.

Then I’m not sure what series of Cockshut it is but I do know it’s a Cockshut.

My favorite tractor at Goerges would be his Deutz Fahr DX160 because it can have duals although it does not have duals on right now. And there is just something about the frame on those older Deutz Fahr’s.

George said he has two more tractors in his barn so he said next time we come he’d show me them so I bet you those two he keeps as collectibles! So pictures are on the way for those two tractors!

My favorite tractors at the new Holland Dealer would be the T5 125 that was hooked up to the bailer.

My favorite tractor at the John Deere dealer would be the John Deere 9R without duals honestly it looks pretty cool without duals.

My favorite tractor at the Kubota New Liskeard dealer would be the M7-171 tied with the M8-201.

My favorite random tractor we seen would be the Case Ih Steiger 540 we seen wich has 540 horsepower and is the second biggest tractor Case Ih makes!

My most favorite tractor from the trip would be the M8-201 tied with the M7-171!

I had made a list of how many tractors I’d spot during our vacation and here is my summary:

115 John Deere’s

23 Ford’s

27 New Holland’s

49 Case IH’s

8 IH/International Harvester’s

5 Case’s

32 Kubota’s

1 Fendt

21 Massey Ferguson’s

1 Challenger

4 Beaularus’es

1 Ferguson

3 Massey Harris’es

3 Farmall’s

3 Allis Chalmers’s

1 Deutz Fahr

2 Fiat’s

4 White’s

1 Mac Don

3 AGCO’s

1 Claas

2 McCormick’s

2 Oliver’s

1 Landini

2 Fordson’s

2 Kioti’s

2 Duetz’s

2 Versatile’s

4 Cockshut’s

On our way to New Liskeard we seen a very good billboard that you should listen too!

Then the man we bought Dodge from has two Duetz’s two and a Massey Ferguson but they don’t count on my list because that is not part of our trip to New Liskeard.

The week we got Dodge Grandma and Grandpa seen a Fendt Vario 1038 at the Maple Lane Mount Forest the 1038 is Fendt’s second biggest tractor with around 500 horsepower.

The day before we left dad and I where moving the stockers and I got two really good pictures!

Erin the cow.

This very funny stocker used to be a bottle calf here is an old picture of him when he was younger.

I also got a nice picture of a hen while I was helping the girls do their chores.

And one more thing before I get back to telling you guys what we did before our vacation the Haileybury NHL team was called the Haileybury Comets. Here is a picture of their logo .

File:Logo Haileybury Comets.gif - Wikimedia Commons

Apparently back in the day the Montreal Canadiens and the Comets had a big rivalry I bet you if Haileybury left the league sometime in between 2010 and 2020 I’d probably know more about them. And according to wikipedia they where part of the 5 teams that founded the NHL yet they were not in the original 6 since they got shut down because of that giant fire that past through in 1922.

So now getting back to before the trip.

When we were moving bales around before we moved the stockers I got a pretty nice picture of a bale in the same grey sky I got the picture of Erin and the hen in.

I then found a mushroom that was as big as my hat if not bigger!

My hat is pretty old. It’s been through a lot. since I am normally outside I guess it just faded sooner. Then I don’t know how those rips got in my hat. Then the grease is from when I hit my head under the bailer when dad Grandpa and me where fixing it.

Then picture was taken before I hit my head and my bike has a flat tire right now. But I think it’s time for a new bike that one is getting a little small for me.

Sorry I had a few delays the first one I had to rake hay I finished at 3 PM but then I got 1000 words done but after that I had to do chores the nI had to go brush hogging and I only finished at 8:30 PM. The on friday I had added another 1000 words then at 11 am I had to go discing and I only finished at 6 30 and had super did my chores and had a shower and by them it was 8:30 so I watched some more tractor stuff then went to bed.

Then While I was discing I discovered these two really good rock country songs that I really like!

And we also discovered there Is a new tractor around! I believe it’s a Fendt Vario 513 with a loader.

But since I had just walked in the house I could not count it because the rule on my counting system was as soon as I leave the house I’m allowed to count any tractor I see. So when we got home as soon as I walked in the house it went by!

And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed this longer than normal post!

And one more quick thing maybe I could do a weekly tractor count and I could report the weekly total on the next monday before I start a new count or I could make my report on sunday it will probably be on sunday. And since it’s monday today I can start this week so I already have one Massey Ferguson on my list! But of course I wont add our tractors because we see them all them time. And I probably see our tractors 100 times a day!

And that’s it for real this time!

RPC Science 5 Lesson 105


Hello! This week in science I started a new semester about photography!

The main thing I learned about this week is about the first photographs.

So the first way I learned was called the Daguerreotype that was created by Louis Daguerre who was a man who was born and lived in France his whole life. Here is how the Daguerreotype works! It creates a highly detailed image on a sheet of copper plated with a thin coat of silver. After the exposure to light, the plate was developed over hot mercury until an image appeared.

And during the same time a man from England named Henry Fox Talbot was inventing his own prototype called Talbot’s process. The main difference was the Daguerreotype is a direct photographic process without the capacity for duplication. The main differences are that calotypes are negatives that are later printed as positives on paper and that Daguerreotypes are negative images on mirrored surfaces that reflect a positive looking image. So I have to explain how Talbot’s process works so here’s how: The Talbot Process is an early photographic technique invented by Henry Fox Talbot  in the 1830s. In this technique, a sheet of paper coated with silver chloride was exposed to light in a camera obscura; those areas hit by light became dark in tone, yielding a negative image. Which is really cool to see! In one of the lesson videos a man named George Did the Talbot Process and the Daguerreotype and the Talbot process took longer to dry and for the image to appear. Here is a very old image of my grandpa when he was my age:

No this is not a Daguerreotype or Talbot Process type of picture. I’m pretty sure it’s one of the first digital pictures.

Here are some pictures I took recently most of them are from my vacation to Earlton I’ll have a post about that tomorrow.

That’s it!

RPC Science 5 Lesson 100


Hello! Here is what Mr.Dignam wants me to do today! Write a short essay on your Citizen Science project. Answer the following questions:

  1. What are scientists trying to learn from this project?
  2. What kind of data are scientists using?
  3. Where did they get the data from?

So Here’s my work:

Scientist are trying to learn from this project so that they can get people living on Mars. One of the many things they are trying to know is how much will it cost for one person to live a full life on Mars. How much oxygen will it take for a full lifetime on Mars same goes for water. Also since sand storms happen so often that they can last for months if it would be best if they lived high in the sky like on a inactive volcano or underground. They are also trying to discover if Mars was truly like Earth millions of years ago and they are trying to discover why the top side of Mars seems to be younger than the bottom. On a Ted Talk in one of my lessons the person talking thinks that the top half was full of water.

The Scientist get there data from NASA from using the rocks Nasa’s rovers recovers from space. They also Use information from astronauts passing by when there going to the moon or the International Space station. Also they get data from astronomers looking through there telescope’s. They also get a lot of their information from people like Elon Musk but I’m assuming his information only goes to his scientist he has hired.

I just thought of an idea! Maybe someday I could build what Mars would look like when people are living on it except i’ll make it in Minecraft! That’s it tell what you think about my idea in the comments please!

RPC Science 5 Lesson 95


Hello! Here is what Mr.Dignam wants me to do in science today! Assignment: Write a short article about the ISS or the Soyuz rocket and spacecraft. What problems did the spacecraft designers have to solve?

My Choice is the Soyuz rocket and spacecraft because the way it launches and lands is very interesting to me. So here is my assignment:

When The rocket launches there are the giant phone tower looking arms that along the rocket to wherever there launching it so for example the International Space Station. When the Soyuz is preparing to leave the ISS the ground team as I call them, finds a flat area that is uninhabited that is within 350 kilometers from the nearest town and the rocket launch site. The rescue team that goes pickup the rocket and the astronauts go in any condition from 5 feet of snow to a sand storm. I wonder if there’s any farm fields in that region. Imagine a farmers was ploughing his when the rocket landed in his field and because the rocket would shake the ground it ruined all his work in that field. I bet he wouldn’t be to happy.

That’s it!

RPC English 5 Lesson 70


Hello! Here is what Mrs.Fish wanted me to do today!

Writing Assignment: Write a final draft of your essay on the following topic: Who is an influential person in your life and why?

So here it is:

My dad is definitely a very influential person in my life because first of all he is my dad. He is the person who inspired me to be a farmer. And my family comes from a long line of farmers so I want to live up our family legacy. My grandpa’s first tractor was a Massey Ferguson 35 which is the first Massey Ferguson tractor ever. My dad’s first tractor was a Massey Ferguson 270 and mine is a Farmall SW4. I’m not sure what my great grandpa’s first tractor might of been but I’m assuming it could of been a Fergusson, Massey Harris or a old tractor that had metal tires.

My dad really influence me because he is the one who helps me with a lot of things like I remember once he help me replace the chain on my bike. and I’ve done many cool things with him and even grandpa like fix the bailer when a sprocket broke.

In the picture dad is on the bailer I’m on the ladder and granpa is the guy leaning on the bailer.

I remember one of the first times I helped dad fix a few shear bolts that kept breaking over and over again on the manure spreader. He is also the one who taught me how to drive the tractors for the first time and he has taught me how to run almost everything on the farm besides the dump trailer because I new how to run the hydraulics and how to back up the trailer. And I hope he might know how to start my tractor once I fix it up.

I remember early this summer I was raking with the small tractor and I remember one of the pins that hold the three point hitch broke and I called dad and we were able to fix it together.

There was also another time when the belt on the lawn mower popped of and dad called grandpa and asked him if he could bring a belt next time he came so we can fix the lawn mower then the day grandpa came we fixed the lawn mower!

Last weekend I helped dad but the doors back on the M9540 since the AC broke down early this summer and we weren’t able to fix it and since it’s getting cold again we put the doors back on it. But the AC breaking down is not Kubota’s fault that happened it’s the AC manufacturers fault.

I’m also very glad he kept his photo album because there is many cool pictures in there. Here is a picture of a Massey Claas combine my dad and grandpa where looking at back when does where brand new wich was 1980’s to 1990’s.

Grandpa is in front of the combine in that picture.

Here is a picture Emma took of dad in 2019 without asking to use my phone 🙄.

That’s it!

RPC Science Lesson 90


Hello! Today in science I learned how to make water bottle rockets, and an air rocket.

I already knew how to do a certain type of rocket we call the pop bottle rocket It’s technically pretty similar to the rest except we put a egg on the top of an upside down bottle and use the air compressor to put pressure in the bottle once there is to much pressure in the bottle it launches itself into the air the egg normally goes higher because it has more weight but when we put water in the bottle it makes it go higher. We use a fence post holder to hold the bottle before it launches a fence post holder in our version is two pieces of plywood cut about two inches long and one more piece of plywood about 4 inches long then we screw two screws into the edge of the 4 inch piece and under it we put both two inches pieces so there is about an inch of space from the ground to the bottom of the center piece of plywood. Then we drill a half inch hole in the center of the top piece of plywood then we put the lid of the pop bottle in to the half inch hole then we put the air compressor under it. Next we put the egg on top of the bottle after that we start the air compressor and away you go! We only had one egg that did not break doing this because it somehow landed on the trampoline that is about 300 feet away from the shed where we normally launch the rocket. After we found it we threw it in the fire it blew up! That was when I had friend over last summer when I had just finished my first year of homeschool when there was no Coronavirus.

The difference between the water bottle rocket, pop bottle rocket, and Air rocket is very interesting. The air rocket uses string, a straw, a balloon, and some tape. You first attach one end of the string to a tree branch or something similar that is higher than launching point. Then you put the straw in the string next you tape the balloon to the straw then you blow up the balloon but don’t tie it. After that you let go of the balloon then there you have it!

The water bottle rocket uses some pipe, and a big pop bottle and at one end you but an air valve that is on the typical tire. Then you use some tape a few snap ties to the tube without tying them then you use the top part of the snap ties as a holder for your bottle to be held with. then use a bike dump or something close too it to pump air then once there’s enough pressure the snap ties will let go and your rockt has been launched!

That’s it! Maybe I could post a video of us doing pop bottle rocket sometime comment if you think we should!

RPC English 5 Lesson 65


Hello! Here is my writing assignment from Mrs Fish here it is:  Write one paragraph on the following topic: Who is an influential person in your life and why?

My dad is definitely a very influential person in my life because first of all he is my dad. He is the person who inspired me to be a farmer. And my family comes from a long line of farmers so I want to live up our family legacy. My grandpa’s first tractor was a Massey Ferguson which is the first Massey Ferguson tractor ever. My dad’s first tractor was a Massey Ferguson 270 and mine is a Farmall SW4. I’m not sure what my great grandpa’s first tractor might of been but I’m assuming it could of been a Fergusson, Massey Harris or a old tractor that had metal tires.

My dad really influence me because he is the one who helps me with a lot of things like I remember once he help me replace the chain on my bike. and i’ve done many cool things with him and even grandpa like fix the bailer when a sprocket broke.

In the picture dad is on the bailer I’m on the ladder and granpa is the guy leaning on the bailer.

I remember one of the first times I helped dad fix a few shear bolts that kept breaking over and over again on the manure spreader. He is also the one who taught me how to drive the tractor for the first time and he has taught me how to run almost everything on the farm besides the dump trailer because I new how to run the hydraulics and how to back up the trailer. And I hope he might know how to start my tractor once I fix it up.

I remember early this summer I was raking with the small tractor and I remember one of the pins that hold the three point hitch broke and I called dad and we were able to fix it together.

There was also another time when the belt on the lawn mower popped of and dad called grandpa and asked him if he could bring a belt next time he came so we can fix the lawn then the day grandpa came we fixed the lawn mower!

Last weekend I helped dad but the doors back on the M9540 since the AC broke down early this summer and we weren’t able to fix it and since it’s getting cold again we put the doors back on it. But the AC breaking down is not Kubota’s fault that happened it’s the AC manufacturers fault.

I’m also very glad he kept his photo album because there is many cool pictures in there. Here is a picture of a Massey Claas combine my dad and grandpa where looking at back when does where brand new wich was 1980’s to 1990’s.

Grandpa is in front of the combine in that picture.

Here is a picture Emma took of dad in 2019 without asking to use my phone 🙄.

That’s it!
