Buckingham Palace is located in Westminster. It was built in 1703 by John Sheffield but John Nash transformed Buckingham Palace. Buckingham Palace has 775 rooms and there are 1514 doors and 720 windows. In 1761 Georges III bought Buckingham Palace. In 1762 , he was remodelling it and in 1820 , Georges IV decided to reconsruct the house. Making the guard laugh is very funny.
Westminster Abbey, formally titled the Collegiate Church of St Peter at Westminster, is a large, mainly Gothic, church in the City of Westminster,London located just to the west of the Palace of Westminster. It is one of the most notable religious buildings in the United Kingdom and has been the traditional place of Coronation and burial site for English and, later, British monarchs. The abbey is a Royal Peculiar and between 1540 and 1550 had the status of a cathedral; however, the church is no longer an Abbey nor cathedral.
The first reports of the abbey are based on a late tradition claiming that a young fisherman called Aldrich on the River Thamessaw a vision of Saint Peter near the site. This seems to be quoted to justify the gifts of salmon from Thames fishermen that the Abbey received in later years.
The House of Parliament is on the North bank of London in Margaret's street. It was built beetween 1840 and 1870 (but there was an old parliament before) by Sir Charles Barry and Augustus Pugin. It's a gorgeous gothic revival building. It's were the laws are voted. In the past the Parliament had several bomb attacks :
- Guy fawkes wanted to blow up the Parliament in 1605
-In 1812 the prime minister was assassinated there
Tower bridge was built in 1880-1894 on the Thames near the tower of London. The bridge is located in the East of London. It constits of towers, a hiffer suspension, apron opening the passage of highest vessels and a bridge at the top. At the time of its construction, Tower Bridge was the largest and the most shophisticated bascule bridge ever built. This bridge is famous around the world thanks to is unique architecture. It was built by John Jackson. There is a law : You can go on the bridge with your pigs. One day a bus was on the bridge when it was opening, the bus managed to pass, just in time. The bascule of Tower Bridge was initially powered by energy created from steam. Since 1976 Oil and electricity are being used to producted energy. It was in 1982 that Tower Bridge was opened to the public for first time. Since 1910 with a permanent exhibition called the Tower Bridge Exhibition.
On the 16th of June we went to Jersey. We had to wake up very early, it was hard ! We took the Condorferries, it was fun.
In the morning we went on a tour of the island, we are sorry but for us it was boring. We saw millionnaires houses and the Shell house.
We ate in the garden because the beach was wet.
After that, we visited the Jersey museum, about the history of the island. It was interesting.
And the best moment of the day was the shopping time, we had 3 hours.
We went with the Sacré-Coeur, it was really great and fun. We met some people and now some of them are our friends.
We went back home at 10 p.m.

Hello there, today, I'm gonna speak about D DAY.
1/ What is the D DAY ? D Day is on June 6th 1944. It's the day when the allies landed on Normady beaches that were called Utah, Omaha (these tow beaches were in the US sector), Gold (British), Juno (canadian) and Sword(british).
2/Why did they land in Normandy ? The allies decided to land in Normandy because during WWII the nazis occupied the north of France, in the east the German army was against the Russian one. Stalin asked the allies to open an other front at the west. So they decided to land somewhere in France. The first time, the landing must take place in north-pas-de-calais but the germans thought the landing could only be in North-pas-de-calais because it's the french region so the Atlantic-wall was fortified here and lots of Panzers where waiting in the north. So Normandy was the best place to land.
3/ Why did they landed in June 6th ? The first time the landing must be on June 5th but because of the bad weather condition in the Channel the landing was set 24 hours later, on 6th of June, a lot of conditions where required for the landing because there must be a full moon for the bombers but a dark night for over 100000 people who jumped during the night of 5th to 6th, the sea had to be rising for the men who would land on the beaches. These conditions where gathered in only 3 days in June 1944 (the 5th, 6th, 7th) The landing should be on June, 5th but because of the weather, it was the 6th.
4/ 6:30 The hour when the first assault wave landed in Omaha, that was terrible, 80% of them were killed or injured (In was so bloody that Omaha was called « Bloody Omaha » because the bombing raid didn't destroy the nazis defences so in was more difficult for the US soldiers who landed, also, between Omaha and Utah, a natural seperation Pointe du hoc made 225 US rangers climb a 100 feets cliff, on the 8th of June only 60 rangers were able to fight.
5/After, in order to fight to the victory the allies built two artificials port, but a storm destroyed a port in the US sector and damaged the second one in Arromanche. Thank to the land, allies gave liberty back to hthe Occupied zone and open an other front, nazis were circled in the South (Italy), West (Normandy) and East (Russia), when the Russian army arrived in Berlin, Hitler commited suicide, so the German signed the armistice, allies won WWII.

I'm going to speak about rabbits.
If you want to adopt one it's what you must know:
- The baby must be 2 months when you adopt him because before they are too young.
- The rabbits are too young before 2 months for us to know if he is a male or she is a female. We know when they're ready to have babies (around 4 months old).
- If you want one you must clean his cage because if you don't do it, it will stink in your house.
- You must buy or make a wooden cage in his cage because at the start the rabbit will be afraid because he doesn't know where he is! So he wants to to hide.
Now, some advice if you have babies:
- The mother will be put straw into her mouth and take it into the wooden cage to make a nest where the babies will be born. The mother makes the nest 1 or 2 days before the babies are born.
Babies look like that:
It's very horrible but when they're 2 weeks old they are sooo beautiful!
- If you've got baby rabbits you MUSTN'T touch them. If you do the mother won't take care of them.
- Don't touch the mother because if she is very protective. She can bite or scratch you to protect her babies.
- Generally, the mother has between 4 and 6 babies (dwarf rabbits).
- If you want to give the babies they must be 2 months old.
It's finished. I hope it was useful for you.
There are some photos. My rabbits look like these!!!!
