As Hermione still has her hopes for SPEW (a club to free house elfs), she has found that Dobby works at Hogwarts. This would be kind of sad to figure out that your friend is cooking your food for you and cleaning for you. Imagine that happening to you. Although, Dobby seems very happy to have work, that is what house elfs are trained to do. Also, Hagrid now has an interview with Rita Skeeter, and I do not think that is a good thing. "She'll twist everything he says," Harry says to Ron and Hermione.

Harry's fellow Gryffindors threw him a surprise party to celebrate his success in the first Triwizard Tournament task! It would be so great to finally feel like you have friends agian after they are mad at you for along time. That would make the stress of being in a very dangerous tournament much better. There is another three months before the next task, and Harry is happy to have lived through the first one. JK Rowling did a nice job of making the story sad for a little bit and then making it happier after time. A good book has its ups and downs!
Harry is very frightened about having to steal a golden egg from a possessive mother dragon. He has been chosen to face a Hungarian Horntail, one of the most dangerous. He is last after Cedric, Fleur, and Krum. If I was last, I would not be happy because then I would be anxious for longer. Harry has learned how to transport his broom to him during the tournament and will use his strength of flying to get the egg. Flying over a fire breathing dragon does not sound fun, I would be afraid of getting burned. When it came to Harry's turn I was nervous, but he got the egg and made it out ok. Ron and Hermione meet Harry afterwards, and Ron actually talked to Harry for the first time in weeks! I hope they become good friends again.

I am on chapter twenty of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and Harry and Hermione are trying to figure out how to defeat a dragon with a simple spell. Harry's first task for the Triwizard Touranment is to get past a dragon with only a wand. If I was in his situation, I would be terrified. Imagine having to face a large, fire breathing dragon with only a magical stick (no affence to the wizarding world). When Professor Moody says to play to his strengths, Harry thinks of flying. Now all he has to do is learn how to transport his broom to him during the tournament. How "simple"!

Tonight I learned adout the main dangers of the river dolphins. Did you know that river dolphins are the one of the most endangered groups of mammals? One of the most common dangers for this mammal is damming. Another older threat that occurred in the eighties was that people in Pakistan were polluting rivers. The Amazon River Dolphins, also called pink dolphins have many threats. Some of the threats include, deforesting near the rivers, over fishing, and paper milling and mining. Also damming, again! I think that the best way to protect river dolphins is to stop damming.
