I Am So Multi-Talented

At the moment I am competing in a cooking contest that takes me all over the world, right now I am in China competing against eight other cooks. I won the USA Championship already.



I also am running a ranch where I have cows, an ostrich, and acres of crops. I am quite successful in selling my crops. I have a bread making machine, a catsup machine and a jelly making machine using my grapes, my wheat, and my tomatoes. I have bee hives as well. I am making lots of money too.

Last week I played detective in San Francisco and solved a case where I had a serial killer on the lose, but don't worry, I apprehended him and he is in prison. And I was also in a poker tournament where I won over two million dollars and then lost it all just like that!



I also took care of a whole village of little people starting out with seven and populated it to over 90. I had to figure out how to feed them, keep water and fire for them going and keep them alive, while the whole time figuring out the secret of a lost city they had come to.



It's true, I am completely addicted to computer games. I always have been but now that I have all this time on my hands, it is a lot worse. But it keeps my mind occupied and in a weird sort of way, I feel like I am accomplishing something. And it is just plain challenging and fun. And keeps my mind busy.



For a while there I was addicted to what is called the seek and find games. Here's a shot of what one looks like.




There's a room full of stuff and a list of things you have to find. Not as easy as it sounds but fun and the graphics are amazing. This particular game I was a wedding planner.

So, at least while my life is on hold, I can virtually do whatever I want.

Dang! I'm way behind the times. I'm still learning to play Mahjong. The seek and find games look interesting. Are they on line games or do you buy the Cds? As you can tell, I'm just getting interested in computer games.

It's nice that you know how to play these games. I can see that they would keep your mind busy and give your body time to do what it has to do.

I was beginning to think you were dreaming all this stuff until I finally figured out it was computer games.

They are something I've never gotten involved in, but I work in front of a computer all day.

Glad your back.

Hi Mary, I use www.iwin.com. You can download a free version of something and then play it free for an hour and then buy it if you like it. They usually cost about 20 bucks but at least you don't have to buy it first. You'd like the Dream Day Wedding.
Yep, it keeps me occupied, even when I feel guilty that I'm not doing something more productive.
Hope your day is a good one.

Hey Shirley, I feel like the real world is passing me by so this way I get to do something, sort of, lol.
Yes, if you work on the computer all day I don't suppose playing games on it would appeal to you.
Hope your Monday morning is going well.

Amy, she must get it from her grandmother.

Hi Alaura, I do like to read but haven't been able to concentrate lately on that so the games I can.
Thanks for coming by.

Sounds fun to me!!! I figured from the sound of things you were either reading or playing games. :) I miss having the time to play like I used to. Maybe after the wedding. :)
