    The Hood Not A Hoodie Just The Hood

    I have been forgetting to mention this project for so long that it’s already halfway completed. This is Through The Woods, which is a cabled hood.

    Sims Sunday: Treading Water

    This week in Simming was pretty painful. For one thing, I felt like the game was on hold until some of the kids grew up (and I could make more).

    I think of Gilkey Square as a big boring area, a miniature concrete wasteland at the main “T” intersection into town. But . . . → Read More: A Visit to Gilkey Square

    Spidey Update

    It’s been a few months since the last Spidey Update. Most of the leaves it had at the time have continued to wither. But the newest two leaves have not experienced any withering.

    Then again, this is the slow season for house plants. They may not go dormant over winter, but my experience with . . . → Read More: Spidey Update
