G Is For Game

I wish I had a garden.
I wish I had a yard to have a garden in.
I have an indoor garden I guess. My living room is no long where I sit, it's where I have plants and lots of 'em. I just keep accumulating more and more too.... but it's good.
I would use gardening as a hobby if I could, but I can't so I have to amuse myself somehow.
Well... I recently, (in November), got a cellphone. Samasung Galaxy S3 to be exact. I love this little gadget, it's like a computer in mini form.
I also discovered I like a certain game.
Who knew at 37 I'd still be getting hooked like I'm on phonics to a game. But it has happened.
Playing on my Samsung Galaxy Tablet
This is The Simpsons Tapped Out.
Check it out on GooglePlay and possible get it for your phone or tablet. I have android and hubby has apple, so everyone can play it seems.
It is highly addictive, I warn you now. 
The hubby and I both play. My nephew plays. Got a couple friends that play.... and so on.
The idea is Homer causes Springfield to 'melt-down' while working at the plant. Next thing you know, you're rebuilding Springfield from dust. Seriously, you even have to collect characters from the show as you go.
You also gain money, experience and all kinds of stuff from missions and using those things to build your town. You get to customize Springfield how you see fit too, so you can let your inner decorator/architect/builder go nuts! 
Being a Simpsons fan, you really enjoy the story and fun of being part of it all. Customized to you no less.
Here's a funny story.... I bought some donuts with my credit card. They didn't show up on my game though. So through Christmas I was back and forth with EA to get my donuts or a refund. Let me stress right now how awesome EA is. Not only did they give me the donuts I paid for, but tacked on an extra 75!!! Thanks EA! That's super groovy when you are needing to buy stuff for your Springfield.
Okay, so this is the friend screen. I can slide over and see the rest of my friends....
If you go and play, I hope you will add me to your list. (fredamans429) Or if you already play, please leave your origin name or email so I can track you down and add you. I can leave you presents and visit your town for money and stuff. Vice versa though....

Do you have a favorite game you play on your phone or tablet?

  4. I'm hooked on the different versions of Angry Birds and am obsessed with getting three stars on every level. I refuse to move on until I do, which sometimes can be a long time.

Canvas Champ (With #Giveaway)

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners. You Want to Be a Credible Source of InformationWhen you put content out on the web, you want it to be either entertaining or useful – ideally both. You may work hard on writing good posts or hiring people who can create useful and interesting stuff…
