Cafe World Tips 16: Super Stoves - Get Them Without Paying Cash For Them

Obviously, I would think, everyone is going to want your Cafe World kitchen equipped with Super Stoves. I mean, personally, I have been playing long enough now that I am kinda tired of having to go through all the prep work to get a dish cooking.

I got my first stove for free when they first came out with them simply by signing up for it in advance with Cafe World.

When they became available to buy, well, give me a break. Zynga/Cafe World wants $50 CASH - real money - to buy one. That's just unbelievable. What other online game do you know of besides maybe online casino gambling requires you to pay such exorbitant amounts of money to play the game?

Of course, you don't HAVE to have Super Stoves to play, but it would be MUCH nicer.

Well, Zynga came out with the build-your-own-stove option. You have to get X amount of 4 different parts to put the stove together and you can only get those parts from gifting from your neighbors.

I replied that I am already showing up at 5:30 am, showing up at 5:0…


Well I wonder how long it's going to take to get the skies over Europe back to normal? What a menagerie of chaos!

Meanwhile, it was a pleasant read to see American made cars are making a comeback in popularity over Asian made cars. It seems like Toyota is coming out with a fresh, new recall every week!

Then there's the story of the bus driver who crashed into the rear of a pickup truck on I-10 here in good ole' AZ - apparently the driver was driving so erratically that a couple of motorists had called 911 shortly before that horrific crash that killed 3 people. I just amazes me the "quality" of commercial drivers I see coming through this area that are weaving in and out of traffic, speeding, tail-gating, texting and all kinds of other crap.

This new breed of driver? The roadways are not safe, I'll just put it that way.

Whatever the case, the expected high today is 70 degrees - more than 20 degree difference than yesterday's high and supposedly even …
