My favourite skatebrand is by far the one and only Element! Element was established in 1992 by Johnny Schilleriff. Element is a surf and skate shop that sales a variety of different things. From caps to skateboard bolts Element has it all. There are many outlets around the world but the one in New York City, USA has been named the best one of all times by a variety of newspapers worldwide. They sponsor many famous skaters chiefly Bam Margera and Chad Muska. I will post more on this brand but have to go now so bye.

Aisling Symes was found on the 12 of October 2009 at roughly 8pm. A body of a young child was found in a storm water drain near where she went missing. The police spent 5 hours trying to dig out dirt and logs from the train to get the body. The area is still being treated as a crime scene. The police thoughts are she either wandered off and fell in the drain or someone threw her in there. I am feeling deeply sorry for Aisling's family that they have lost there child at such a young age. Madeline Mccann parents have wished the best of luck for the future of the Symes family as we all should. she will be dearly missed by all who knew her! =) Thanks for reading and leave a comment of remembrance for this young girl. Thank you

10 years from now I would like to be a professional runner. I would have hopefully got a scholarship to an American university on a Running Scholarship and be an accomplished runner as well as having a degree in Law (Criminal Law) and having learnt Spanish and Latin. I would be going to the 2020 Olympic 1500 metre championships. By the time I would retire from running my Law career would then be boosted into action. I would be a very successful lawyer and hopefully I would have enough money to retire at about 40. Man that would be sweet. If this did not work out I would be a homeless comedian!
P.S I would also like to be a great soccer player and go to the Qatar 2022 world cup!That is if my other careers do not work out LOL
In the holidays I did quite a lot of running. Training as well as races! On the first Saturday of the holidays I ran in the North Island Cross Country Championships and picked up 14th in the U-14 3km race. Only 1 year 8 pupil was ahead of me in this race and that was Jacob Priddey in 9th. Everyone else ahead of me was either year 9 or 10 and they achieved placing from 5th to 15th in the NZSSXC (New Zealand Secondary Schools Cross Country) so it was quite a good one considering age and growth difference and how hard the course was! In the second Saturday of the Holidays I was down in Napier competing in the Poverty Bay championship U-14 4km event which I picked up a decent placing FIRST! I won that event by 16 seconds over a kid who was 8th at North Island Champs! I then came home to Hamilton to compete in WBOP (Waikato Bay Of Plenty) Cross Country Championships. I Ran superb picking up 3rd and only losing to second by half a second! So overall I have had a superb action packed sporty holiday!
Cheers for reading.

There has been a bit of discussion on war on the Woodmonsta's page but just to let you know Stalin did kill many of his men by making them endure winters reaching minus 40 degrees. On the road to Stalingrad he lost more than 1.1 million men but he did basically kill the whole German 6th Army and many Hungarian and Italian Infantry forces and foot soldiers. Sometimes the German's and Russian's occupied the different levels of the same building and anyone silly enough to raise there head was likely to be killed in a crossfire or sniper fire. To be honest Stalin lost 20 million men throughout WW2 (World War Two 1939-1945) and that's 3 times as many innocent Jew's as Hitler gassed in the notorious Death Camps plus an extra 2 million people. These stats are without the civilians added in as well if you are wondering. Why did Hitler do what he did? Because he was mad with power and hatred that's why. Whilst in prison in 1924 for trying to seize ultimate power in Germany, he wrote his story Mein Kampf (Translation My Struggle) which explained what he wanted to achieve if he got power in Germany and using the SS (Schutzstaffel) which means protective squadron and The SA (Sturmabteilung) which means storm trooper he did exactly that and seized sole power in Germany. He then humiliated and bet up Jewish people through out Germany before the SS began running the POW (Prisoner Of War) camps for Jews, Roma (Gypsies), Disabled, Black People and Jehovah's witnesses not to mention countless enemy soldier that were captured. Out of the 48 POW camps only 4 were fitted with the foul Gas Chambers Auschwitz-Birkenau, Treblinka, Sobibor and Majandek. Chelmno was the only death camp to use the dreaded gas vans. Most POW camps were known as Stalag's which were for both Officers and enlisted men. Oflags were for Officers only as there was a greater bargain for there lives. Before any soldier was placed in a camp they had to go through a Dulag. Now according to the Geneva Convention (1929) Prisoners only had to give there Name, Rank and Serial Number but the German's used trickery to gain more than this like vital War Movements and dates and other strategies that they could use against enemies to win the war. Out of the 16 odd camps there were only about 4 or 5 death camps but the main one was Auschwitz where about 1.1 million people were killed of the 650,000 registered prisoners only 65,000 survived and the Jewish population of 8 million in Europe dropped to 2 million after the war. According to the Geneva Convention (1929) POW'S where to be clothed, fed and have a place indoors to sleep. But all many POW'S got was a small amount of porridge watered down so that was hardly filling and if you were caught sharing food you were killed. Which is why many people tried to escape the camps by Tunneling, Climbing or disguising themselves. Each camp was surrounded by Electric bard wire fencing 4 metres high with an overhang and a watchtower armed with one man and a machine gun and a huge spotlight. Only roughly 2000 POW'S ever escaped.
For more information leave a comment and i will try to help you out!
P.S would put more labels but it only lets me have 20 =(

This guy is the man!!! Nick Willis is a 1500mtr runner from our little country New Zealand! He got a bronze in Beijing in 2008 in the 1500m final of the olympics. He also got a gold in the commonwealth games in 2006. I have met him once and that was at Porritt Stadium he was an intresting character and really nice to all the kids. He signed a poster for me and he judged the 400mtr race which i won by about 30mtrs.
So now you cant tell me that I have not met my hero! So out of this expierence all I can say is look out Nick Willis becasue Marek is on his way up!
On the 15th of June 2009 New Zealand played Spain in Johannessburg, South Africa.
A Good spain side well infact one of the strongest in years set out to destroy a weak New Zealand side. New Zealand was without the Blackburn captain Ryan Nelsen so they were really dead in this match. Fernando Torres the best striker in the world had a stunning match picking up his first goal in the 6th minute from there New Zealand were looking quite poor. Fernando Torres picked up his second in the 14th minute and it was bassically a tap in for someone as good as him! In the 17th Minute Torres got a fabulous header in the top corner and New Zealand's keeper Glen Moss was distraught!
In the 24th minute Francesc Fabregas was set up with the easiest goal of his career a tap into an open goal! From there New Zealand looked doomed! 3 minutes into extra time in the first half saw David Villa slot one away after one of New Zealand's defenders went to kick it but missed it completly.That made the half time score 5-0 to spain. A stronger second half from New Zealand saw Spain score no more goals. But the thing they score was loads of free kicks from New Zealands desperate defence. The Final score was 5-0 to spain!
Goals : Spain - Fernando Torres 6, Fernando Torres 14, Fernando Torres 17, Cesc Fabregas 24, David Villa 48

Today (28/5/09) Man United played Barcelona somewhere in Italy. A flaring first 10 minutes saw Barcelona under constant pressure but the some sloppy defending from Nedjema Vidic saw Samuel eto'o score quite a good finish. The rest of the first half saw Man United with there head's down but still the score remained 1-0 to Barcelona. In the 70th minute Barcelona's best player (In my opinion) Andres Inestia put a lovely cross in which Messi scored a stunning finish! Sir Alex Ferguson was gong nuts! LOL!
Great game and Well Done BARCELONA the new Champions

On the 23rd of May 2009 Fairfield First Eleven played Matamata at Fairfield. After a pretty rubbish first half from Fairfield the score stood at 0-0 (Nil All). Then Marek and Tom came on and things started to spark up.Malik then set Ruben up and Ruben scored a fantastic finish in the top right corner on a wicked angle. Then they scored through some sloppy defence from our Midfield and Back Line. Ruben the scored again off Marek's cross but it was havoc in the penalty area as Ruben hit the goalie in the legs it rebounded onto Ruben's legs and went in! Some MAGIC from Marek and Malik set Eli up to score a pretty choice finish! Our final score was 3-1 to Fairfield it was a tight but good game.
Goal of the match was Ruben's Nani like goal (The First One)

Today (16/5/09) Fairfield Intermediate First Eleven Boys played Hillcrest United Falcons. After a great start James put us on the board first with a chip from roughly 20 metres out. He then scored again the same way but from about 15 metres out. Then Campbell put in a great cross which Marek then tucked away neatly in the top corner. Campbell put in another great cross which was finished by Malik elegantly! James then scored another 2 beautiful goals! The end score was 6-1 to us. There only goal was some pathetic defence from our backs! Player of the day was Campbell.
JAMES GOT AN ARSHAVIN W0000000000000T

This little tiger is so cute and would whoop me at running!
Today (9/5/09) Fairfield Intermediate School Boys 1st Xl played Southwell hotshots. After and awesome first half we saw ourselves up 6-0 Marek scoring three of those goals and Malik scoring two and Ruben Bagging one. An awesome start to the second half with the first goal from Ruben with in the first 10 seconds great set up by James and Marek! Ruben then bagged a second a header from Luke's mean corner. So with Ruben and Marek bagging hat-tricks it look as if Malik was going up as well when he did a superb solo run for 40mtrs before slotting it around the keeper f0r his hat-trick!!! Marek then received a cross from Luke which was put away neatly in the bottom corner! Luke then showed some magic of his own doing a little step over and banging it past the keeper for number 11. Final score was 11-0 to us (Fairfield) Great game all round player of the day was: THE TEAM! well deserved!!!
Special Mentions to:
Malik for getting a hat-trick on his debut for the First Xl (NOTE: He also got 4 goals on his debut for the second 11 and he got 3 for the seconds today as well) Congratulations Malik!
Marek: For getting 4 goals like Arshavin and for scoring from a corner before the game (Ask Malik for proof!)
Luke: For setting up 5 goals and getting a stunner of his own!!!
Lance: For his first clean sheet of the season (NOT THAT IT WAS HARD TODAY) Lol Jokes!
