Holy crap!  Thanks for posting that!  Done!

Heads up fellas! EA is on Humble Bundle. You get all those games for PC and pay what you want. I recommend a penny over the average at least so you get the two extra. You would be surprised how fun Sims 3 can be. All the moneys go to some pretty good charities.

Just bought a PS3 a few weeks ago.  They have a special on the 1st 2 and I almost picked them up.  Need to finish The last of Us before I do.

Thanks Andrew.  Haven't been around in a while.  Hopefully I can be around more often.  Life gets in the way :D

Tim, I have been playing it a lot recently. I have to say, the early stages are a but boring, but once you figure out what can make what and all that, it becomes really really fun. What's your server address, I'll have to stop by sometime.

Classic Arcade Game Deaths.  Man I'm old.  I've played every single one of these.

Advice re abusive boyfriend of ex

My ex has been dating an alcoholic abusive policemen on and off for about 4 years.  After she sued him for damages related to an injury from his drunken rage, they parted ways for a year and a half but now appear to be back together.  She is keeping him away from our sons (now 11 and 13) but her personality changes a lot when they are together.  She disconnects maternally from our sons and becomes combative to me and her family of origin.  Unless there is some trauma to boys, I don’t have good…See More
