Some Serious Solitaire Down Time

January 11, 2013

I have discovered the joy of playing games again. I’ve been working very long hours for a few years now, and I think I was starting to break down a bit (not in a good way). So I have intentionally started to set aside a period of time, when I can, to just read a […]

More Random Toodles

The reason I haven’t been around is because (a) I’ve been busy, and (b) I’ve been sick with a nasty cold. The husband works in public service (post office and in a grocery store) so he is exposed to all sorts of sick people. We haven’t been sick like this in years. My poor husband […]

Brush Up on Your German

Comments Off on Brush Up on Your German

I have two sons. Both LOVE computer games, but one prefers the “simulation” type games (he’s a World War II nut) and another likes the browser kind of games, like physics games or “shooting” games that you play online. From time to time, we like to check out games in other languages, just for kicks. […]

Comments Off on The PlayStationMove- Wow!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of PlayStation MOVE. All opinions are 100% mine. Probably one of the best things to happen with video games (I’m an “old timer” who remembers when Pong came out, so I call everything “video games” still) is the interaction of the player. That is– getting […]

And they are *educational* so you have no guilt, like when you eat those Weight Watchers chocolates, right? Anyway, I tried to take a few screenshots of the Magin Pen Game […]

Does anyone know where I might find inexpensive jigsaw puzzles? The kids are really “into” jigsaw puzzles lately. We spent two nice, quiet days working on a complicated 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle, and it was so much fun! I’ve checked Amazon, Walmart, Target, etc. Most puzzles seem to be priced in the $20 range, too […]

A Review of Jishaku

Look what we got in the mail! The Jishaku Game– The Game of Magnetic Power! Doesn’t that sound so impressive?! It’s another non-electronic game, so it’s a hit with me already, lol. Jishaku is $20 from the company’s website, and a little under that at Amazon. When my 12-year old son saw that this game […]

A Review of the Disney DVD Bingo Game

August 15, 2008

Comments Off on A Review of the Disney DVD Bingo Game

After all these years, the game of Bingo is still so popular. I absolutely loved it as a kid. We had the old cardboard cards with faint red lettering, the little plastic buttons with letter and number stamped on them, and the very high-tech plastic cup. It resembled a bubble-gum dispenser– you turned the rotating […]

Thanks to the blogosphere, I’ve learned about all sorts of things I never knew. One of them is the game called Wii. (I’m still in the Playstation 1 era). I was mainly curious about Wii because I just HAD to know how one pronounces it! Is it WEE or WHY or could it possibly be […]
