About a week ago I started playing this fun little game on Facebook called Farm Town. You get a little plot of land, a little bit of money, and you grow "crops". You help your "neighbors" by watering and raking thier farms, and when the crops are ready you harvest for each other. Why is it so addicting? I'm not quite sure. I like seeing my little crops go from seeds to plants to full on fruits and vegetables. Yes, they're little graphics on my computer screen but it's still cute! Another huge chunk of the fun is the interaction with other farmers. If you're looking to be hired or hire someone, or just hang out you can go to the Inn, the Market or the Real Estate office. These are basically chat rooms filled with other farmers from around the world. When I get hired, I like to chat with the person who's farm I'm working on. It has been such an amazing experience getting to know so many different people from around the globe in such a short time. I've met girls in Greece, Australia, England, New Zealand...I've met guys too but this seems to be a more woman friendly game. I've noticed men will just go to work at the farm, say "thanks" and leave. I usually end up chit chatting long after the crops are harvested with the farm owner and 1 or 2 other ladies in the conversation.
If you're on Facebook and would like to get addicted yourself, I'd LOVE to have you as my neighbor! I love helping newbies...it makes me proud! Happy farming!

This is the Lush I made for Mother's Day, and it was SOOOO GOOD! The berries were so good w/the filling...it wasn't too sweet...it was just perfect. I left most of it at my mom's house so I made another one later in the week. Fry's had sponge cakes on sale for $1.99 so I took it as a sign that I HAD to make it again. This time I used Lemon pudding instead of vanilla, and it gives it a little zing but it's not "lemony". Either way it is really YUMMY!!!

I just ran across a little blurb for this stuff, Cole's Flaming Squirrel Sauce in Phoenix Home & Garden magazine. It's a sauce that contains hot stuff that mammals don't like but birds don't mind that you pour on birdseed so the little buggers can't come and steal all the sunflower seeds before the birds have a chance at it. The illustration on the bottle is what really gets me...how funny is that?!
