Facebook Games

My grandmother and Aunties believed in playing games to share time together with family, friends or strangers. Every time we get together, the cards would come out and if we wanted a change it would something with Dice.

Either way I learnt from experiencing some happy memories due to the games we shared.

Now there is Facebook games. I love Collaspe & Farmville the best and I have meet some really neat friends from my Farmville neighbours. Most are really happy people and we all wish each other well in our accomplishments or celebrations.

I went to a webinar the other day & listened to a point of view that surprised me. It was said that “people judge you by having facebook games all over your wall”.

And guess what! I went straight to my page and deleted the game applications.

Then I thought about why I play them, Why do I spend my time there etc etc etc.
I looked at all the happy & positive people I had as friends, I looked at my amazing children & their friends and I realised I only got to know them though playing games on facebook.
No matter what game I play, the team members of that application help each other to obtain goals.
We even spur each other on as a group. We like each other’s comments or status it goes on and on.

I like the vast age range I have as well, It provides constant stimulation for me.

I also get to have good relationships with my family where we play games and message each other at least weekly, it creates healthy bonding.

I remember travelling on a bus across the Australian bite and I pulled out a pack of cards to teach other passengers Skip-bo. Everyone I introduced to that game enjoyed themselves and attracted other people to play. So I meet more people and quickly passed away the Kilometres.

It was my grandmother taking her time to play with me and my mother for buying the countless games that I have to thank. As not only is it a tool to enjoy people’s company with, but something that creates long lasting pleasant memories.

So tell me, why would someone want to judge me simply because I play facebook games?

I'd be intested in your comment.

Keep playing those games!

Emus Back to the Bush

I have been putting off writing this post until I was sure the Emus were successfully returned to the outback.

About 3 weeks ago we returned our 3 Emus that were 10 months old back into the bush.

raising them as babies and watching them go was hard, but it was always our plan to raise them to the point where they can take care of themselves, it came quicker than I had expected.

we opened the back gate which backs on to the outback and that was it.

They took a while to take their first steps out of the yard. Once out they were happy exploring.

Towns people have reported there on goings over the past few weeks. So we know they are healthy & doing well, they are still close though, but we have had a fair bit of rain lately which is unusual so they are not short of water, which was our main concern.

We knew they would be ok with the Dingos as they were giving the dogs a bit of curry the weeks up to their release.

I do miss them, but glad we spent time with them and gave these guys a chance at life.

I consider myself fortunate that they shared my backyard.

60 days of Twitter Traffic Machine

Well I am pleased with the results over the last month.

The auto feeds are providing great content from others blogs and such.

The articles are that good, I go to Twitter and read from my own feeds and notice others are enjoying the content too.

I have 1,181 followers and I am following 1642, I still haven't got the hang of following others messages. I find it easy to retweet though.

The content from those I follow is great to, the market angle has slowed down compared to 2 months ago and people tend to be more inspired by each other and want to support each others tweets.

So I am hanging in their and tweet approx once a week, I may miss a few twitters, but hey I can't live on socail sites all the time, i'd achieve very little with my life if I did that : )

Seafood in the Outback

Yes thats right, Seafood in the outback.

The guys from Geraldton 530kms west, drive out once a month to make us seafood lovers happy.

I have just noticed they have a website, where you can order on line to be delivered on the next round.

They also have a large amount of recipies on the site including sause recipies.

The website is state wide, so no matter where you live they will deliver. The specials are handy too.

An example for July is Fishermans baskets for 4, organge roughy & Apple pie, serves 12 to 14 ppl.

They normally park up on the main street in Meekatharra and visit most businesses in town. if you phone, they will fax you a price list.

So for all you outback workers, miners, station owners that are new to our area. You'll be pleased to visit this site.

Enjoy !!!
