I think its a computer game online.
Not my cup of tea,my daughter plays World of Warfare.
When are they going to introduce games that deal with peace and negotiated disputes and higher standards for office help

I guess when it becomes a popular idea.

We could use a fun game, online, about gardening. Like which of these plants take up very little foot space and other things like that.

It is nothing like World of Warcraft which my son plays. He quit recently and sold his account for like $300.00 to someone who didn't want to start from scratch.
Farmville is through Facebook the idea is to build a farm from scratch. You start with a certain number of plots and you have to till and plant and harvest. You received coins towards buying more assets and the get credits for work experience and as you move up in levels, more assets become available until you get plantations and everything. Then you get to help your neighbors by chasing off crows, pulling weeds, etc when they are away. You also get to send each other gifts like chickens, cows, trees, etc to add to your farm. It's just a fun way to do virtual gardening, especially for those you are stuck inside all winter. Many of my co-workers are playing too.

I hear you. I've always been a single parent. My 21 yr old is a senior in college, doesn't drink, doesn't do drugs. never in trouble with the law. Guess I've done something right. LOL (Although you might not think so to hear him tell it!)

Farmville sounds like lots of fun, if I had the time! I can waste way to much time with just ZUMA or spider solitaire.

I check my farm when I come home from work and if I am off work, I check when I need a rest. I find it to be fun. We are kinda in a race to see who can get to the higher level first.
My husband asked me, so how is my farm girl doing tonight, and do I have a wood shop on that farm.

sounds fun but I just don't have the time. Maybe the January slump will perk things up.
