Re: What adventure game are you playing?

ZGI is definitely one of my all-time favorites. It's filled with my kind of humor and very fun to play. Right now I'm playing Memoria, the sequel to Dark Eye: The Chains of Satanav. It's an engaging story with magical elements encorporated into some good puzzles. I haven't played the first game yet,...

Re: An ISP LOWERING Their Prices??!!

That's a nice treat, Drac! Do you think they could be angling for something delicious from your world-famous garden this year? :flower

Re: Happy Birthday LadyKestrel

Thank you, Kickaha and Phlebas! Regarding chocolate, my favorite is from a local place that makes it themselves in small batches. (Their almond bark is to die for!) I just hope that when the small businesses can open again they'll still be there. It's funny that you mention buying cards here, Kickah...

Re: question about best green bean seeds and tomato plants

My daffodils are up, too, Mbday, and my forsythia bushes are blooming. I don't grow any veggies, however, so I can't help you there.

Re: Happy Birthday LadyKestrel

Thank you for the lovely birthday wishes, everyone! I woke up this morning to a phone call from my cousin who told me to look out on the front porch. She made me a chocolate cake and delivered it with a Visa gift card and a very funny birthday card. She also left Lindt chocolate bunnies and Easter c...

Re: How is Everyone Coping?

I ordered some meat from Omaha Steaks last night because the shelves at ShopRite were quite empty of it yesterday. Pasta and cereal were also nearly wiped out. We picked up some brands we hadn't tried before, so maybe we'll find some new favorites.

Re: How is Everyone Coping?

Tomorrow I plan to walk over to our ShopRite in the shopping center behind my house to pick up a few necessities and a prescription from their pharmacy, but otherwise my sister and I are in good shape to hunker down for the duration of this epidemic. Between books, games, jigsaw puzzles, art project...

Re: Geospots, a Carol Reed Game

I thought there were a few of them that were Mac compatible, but when I checked recently and didn't see any mention of Macs, I thought I had made a mistake. I'll have to contact the developer to see if they're still available for 10.10.

Re: Geospots, a Carol Reed Game

It's good to see you, RCB! I've always been attracted to the Carol Reed games, but there aren't any that have been ported to Macs. I've heard good things about the Rusty Lake games - very puzzle oriented, which I like.

Re: Jigsaw puzzles

Jude, After putting together the border of a 1000-piece puzzle, my sister always says, "This one is too hard!" However, within half a day she has made a good start. She's best at finding like pieces to assemble, and I'm good at finding where they attach to the rest. Drac, I will see the doctor again...

Re: Jigsaw puzzles

You made a good start on 2020, Jude. That tropical fish one would have driven me a bit batty, but the dinosaur one looks fun to do. My sister is working on her 4th jigsaw puzzle since the new year. She finished two funny ones by CEACO with 550 pieces. The first is Pets Rock, a funny one with dogs dr...

Re: Back from my travels again

That was quite an adventure, Kickaha! Your visit to the Monster Cafe made me smile because it reminded me of screenshots I've seen of 9: The Last Resort. Hobbiton looked quite fun to visit, and I loved the beautiful scenic shots in New Zealand. Also, I think it's funny that we were both at Heathrow ...

Re: Winter Storms

That was quite an experience you went through, JK! I'm glad you got it all sorted out.

I just got back from my annual theatre in London trip last night, so aside from cold temps today, I haven't experienced anything significant except some rain and a couple of windy days since Jan. 8.
