What Is a Zamboni(R)?
A Zamboni(R) is a car/cart that scrapes, cleans, and smoothes the scrached-up surface of an ice rink after a round of skating. Before this invention, resurfaceing took over an hour to do! In 1939, Frank Zamboni bulit an ice rink in California, named "Iceland". Getting fed-up with resurfaceing the ice by hand, Zamboni set of to create the worlds first automated resurfacer. He did in the end, and he called it the Zamboni(R), which is a must-have at ice rinks today. If there wasn't no Zamboni(R), if you wanted to do more skating, you would have to stay at the rink and get cold for a lot longer..............
Our wonderfuly wonderful wonder words for today and their defenitons are:
compacted: squshed, chushed in to a smaller space
resurfaceing: the process of scrapeing off the cut-up layer of ice and smoothening the layer of ice below on an ice rink
Zamboni(R): the only fully automated ice resurfaceing machine!

My name is Emily. I have two dogs. One is a shitzu named Zoey she is a four year old female. And the other is a Cairn Terrior named Max he is a two year old male. I also have one male betta fish. We are also going to get some chickens soon. The last and final animal I have is my little brother named Nolan he is a eight year old male. When I grow up I would like to be a domestic veternarian not a farm one. The reason why I want to be a DOMESTIC veternarian is becuase I love dogs. So hopefully I won`t have to deal with the cats a lot. Not that I don`t like cats it`s just that I have never had one before so I don`t know how to care of them. Also, when I grow up I`m gonna have two dogs, I`m not sure what kind yet, and two to three kids. If I have three I want two girls and one boy. If I have two kids I want one boy and one girl. I love the sport soccer and I also do tae kwon do, and teach these cute 6 year old kids. That is ME and what i am going to do when I grow up!
