Cafe World Tips 26: Gift Holiday Tree Ornament

This is a hack, folks, I'm telling you and warning you right now.  Zynga has doled out some pretty serious consequences to people using hacks in this game when they are found out.  Some people have their accounts completely removed, others face having all that the hack did for them removed from the game, including any leveling up it did.

For those that are hell-bent on using cheats - here it is:  http://apps.facebook.com/cafeworld/send_gift.php?gid=2948

I doubt it will last very long, though, Zynga is usually all over this stuff once they find out about it.  I only include it in my tips because people are going to do this stuff regardless, I just wanted to through out the warning.  If nothing happens, so beit, but if you face penalties for using it, well, all I can say is: you have been warned.

That cheat makes it so you don't have to do the Treasure Isle junk to acquire the ornament or you don't have to pay $8 Cafe Cash to bypass it.

Sunday 12/19/2010 6 Days Til' Christmas

The Playstation 3 stopped working yesterday.  It had the "Yellow Light Of Death" going.  Meaning you try to turn it on, the green light comes one, followed by the yellow light, followed by the red light, where it stays red.  Caleb comes out "just telling you" that it's broken.  Well whooopdie doo.  I don't have $150 to be spending on that machine in sending it to Sony to get it fixed.  That's what they charge, a flat rate of $150. Whatever's wrong wtih it, that's what it's going to cost. $80 of that money is just to get it there and back via Fed Ex.

Screw that.  After that happened last time with the now-stolen PS3, I found people in Craigslist that say they can fix them.  I found one that fixes the YLOD for a flat rate of $45 yesterday.  We took it over there.  About 8 hours later, Caleb went and got the thing and we now have a functioning PS3 again.  My dad sent him a Christmas gift of $75, guess who's getting $45 of that?  Yes, indeedy, me, for getting that thing fixed.  He played it all night long, so I'm assuming he thought it worth the money to fix.

I wrote my brother back after he sent me a reply correcting me and telling me what Christmas is and what it isn't.  Not feeling to good about this situation, I told him such.  What's going to happen when we're in the same room and - he wants to open his mouth and let all kinds of s*** come out of it.  He hasn't responded.  I don't really care anyway, I doubt we are going to go unless Caleb wants to go by himself.  He isn't apologizing for saying the things he did to me, I take that as a bad sign, like, show up and WWIII is going to start. Who needs it.

Well, my Christmas tree is up, but I need lights for it.  Gonna have to go through all that stuff out back and hopefully find enough working strands to get it lit up nicely.

I was also out there yesterday going away at grass and some overgrown plants - I am just cutting them way back down and try to figure out what is the correct way to prune them after they start growing again to get them looking nice.

Fishies are doing nicely as well.  Hummingbirds - LOTS of them - coming to my property and feasting both on the feeder mixture and the Honeysuckle flowers.  Pretty cool to see so many different colored versions of them. Plus, there are 2 I guess that are mated cause' they never come alone, they always come with each other to feed.

Today?  I'm going to spend some more time out there cutting down some plants that need cut back.  It's actually quite relaxing and enjoyable.  It may not sound that way, but that's exactly what it is.  I also want to get something for my dad and send that out for Christmas - it's only 200 miles away if I get it sent out by Monday it should easily arrive in time.  I got the Omaha steaks for my oldest brother yesterday - at GREATLY reduced price plus free shipping, $30 at least less than what I spent on the same thing last year.  Caleb?  I am going to find a few small things so he has something to open at Christmas, but, I have spent more than enough money on that car and that's really going to have to suffice as a "major" present this year.

Happy Sunday.
