      Been moving the chickens, and the trees and the fences and the hanging plant trellises.  I haven’t gotten up from my chair to do any of that,, Now yes I ‘ve gotten up other things have needed doing.  but, the renovations on the virtual farm have been painless, unless I’m developing carpel tunnel from too much clicking  Since I began  it’s been an interesting journey, it started from pretty much a solitary endeavor and then turned into a social one and then evolved into an activity that I share with the people who I work with..  When I started , my farm was several haphazard plots, and more often than not I would come back to dead crops, if it wasn’t for the coins from the trees and barnyard animals, that spread would have been abandoned a long time ago.     When I got serious, and why I got serious I have no idea but, I did and then the plow and plant  until the coin ran out , then come back and do it again.  My family wasn’t to happy with me to say the least…      

   The farm was calling my name and there were crops that needed harvesting, boy if the real world had growth cycles that quick, no one would starve . but I digress,  I’ve been asked what it is I enjoy about the game and that is easy, all the neat, nice and varied folks you meet from everywhere,  a truly free exchange of speech, that in itself is amazing.   The neat orderly world you can create and keep it that way!!!  And, as long as I keep planting and plowing and harvesting the trees and animals, I can go to the market and get most anything they have to offer.  Another thing I like is I can keep  on adopting animals and they pay me!!!   I know my heritage  shining through…  Sometimes, I look at all the critters I got on that farm think I’ve lost my mind.    Someday I will actually count them up, oh wait there’s golden chicken, brb…

the computer had swallowed them up whole, well they will come up for air when the service goes off…

     Where have all your friends gone???  Hey, you know where they are, if you are on Facebook,  and get to read the posts of the latest achievements in virtual world.  Hey, I’m not knocking it as I’ve said before I wouldn’t mind living on the farm that I have created on the computer.  It’s an awesome thing the wonderful people who I have met from around the world.  There seems to be an avenue for each bent of mind,  you can be destructive or you can grow things and create environments, you can play shopping etc….  There’s enough to interest most anybody.  I’ve watched this normally pristine house go to heck in a handbasket, but,  you know what, as long as he is happy, and having fun.  It’s looks like the wars were fought, here on sight.  I know that I have heard the play by-play description of these battles.

     Is our society truly headed toward what the sci-fi books foretold, a people attached to  machines,  everywhere I look when I wait tables, folks are on their phones online, or on their laptops.  I remember telling my first husband many years ago, that it was coming a time when you couldn’t tell a fib, because it could be checked and we are truly there.  Most everywhere you go in public you must have the expectation of being on camera, our locations are tracked, via our cell phone transmissions.  Big brother is certainly alive and well.  Oh well that is just the way it is I’m not here to even try and protest.  You just know you better act right.  Or as right as I can ever be…lol…                                                  

  All, I know so far,  is that since the t.v. has been silenced, and each of the minds in this house  is so much more active and sharp.  The constant bombardment of commercialism is a click away from being gone, when it pops up.  There is a contentment here that I haven’t felt since the last time the t.v. went silent.  I really don’t want it back..  And, you know if I really want to watch television it is just a click away on this machine.

animals farming and the virtual world, and dang it Dr. Phil, there are those that live in both worlds..

Everyday at three we would watch dr. phil, sometimes he was out of whack, hey aren’t we all..  But, lately it seems like that shiny pate has lost all compassion and reason.  Or I’m the idiot for taking an online quiz of his,  Amazingly enough the results showed that I was a vain arrogant self involved leader and no one liked me.  This amazed me as my livelihood depends on folks liking me and others,  responding to the directions  that I give them.  So, I blew that off  hey it was just a stupid quiz..  So now he is going off on Farmville ( I wish I could have the farm that I have built, in fantasy land.)   And it amazes me that with him being a shrink that he doesn’t see the wonderful view into the workings of your fellow farmers minds.  It’s a very accurate picture,  since I know most of my ” neighbors” it gives me a good guess that I’m right about the ones I don’t know.  The concept of the game as well as the creative aspects got me involved.  You can’t be successful without helping others, you don’t have to kill steal or blow up anything to play this game, heck you don’t even have to play regular to be of help to your neighbor, leave a few plots plowed, so your neighbor can come by and fertilize your fields and make their points.  I agree that you can’t ignore the rest of the world to live in virtualville, but come on it’s just a game
