Happy National Coffee Day

Happy ‪#‎NationalCoffeeDay‬ to all my fellow java junkies!  There are lots of coffee places giving out free coffee today, but not Starbucks.  Instead, they are donating a coffee tree to a farmer for every bag of coffee sold, in order to help combat a nasty fungus called Coffee Rust.  Even though I'm not sure how we'll be able to keep all these coffee trees watered, Carlos and I still think that's pretty cool!  You can learn more about the program at this link.

The Martian

Ridley Scott's new film "The Martian" is coming out this week, a rare super blood moon eclipse occurred last night, then today NASA announced they found evidence of flowing liquid water on Mars and Zynga releases the Stargazer Lily as FarmVille 2's new limited edition crop!  Coincidences?  I think not!  The confluence of these cosmic events can only mean ONE THING...

...and once I figure out what that thing is I will let you know.  But in the meantime, enjoy my new movie!


On a side note, the ASPCA warns that Stargazer lilies are toxic to cats.  Unfortunately, Fluffy, Chooella and I found that out the hard way.

RIP Fluffy.

The Turd Man

I never knew the old FarmVille before the State Fair with its banjo music, its farmlands and easy charm. I really got to know it in the classic period of the black market. We'd run anything if people wanted it enough and had the farmbucks to pay. Of course a situation like that does tempt amateurs but, well, you know, they can't stay the course like a professional. Good fellows on the whole, did their best you know. FarmVille doesn't really look any worse than a lot of other cities. Farmed out a bit. Oh, I was going to tell you, wait, I was going to tell you about Choo Dessny, a farmer. Came all the way here to till the land and made friends with a turkey. His name was Carlos, Carlos Guajolote. Anyway, there they were, poor chaps. Happy as larks and without a clue as to what was about to become of them...
