    I hope so too! Marbi, that was so much fun! I wish my laptop didn't break down back then so I could've continued. Nonni sure seemed to enjoy it.

    I started a 1920s hood. Have been doing everything but playing in it. This after my retro hood crashed and burned... (it got corrupted).. I had a backup of it, but it was rather old, and I have a back to the future one I started which is meant to be one where you can have different time periods in the same folder. I just can't get into any of them. I am in the mood for something different, but for the life of me I can't figure out what I want to play. I have done medieval, I have thought about Victorian, but it is a little too close to what I have already played. The problem is, there isn't enough content out there for some versions and that would mean I would be doing nothing but creating to a time frame. Which is fine, but when I play I just want to be able to play, not try to, and realize there are too many gaps for immersion. I would even just take on a challenge, but none of them are lighting that spark. I thought about doing a castaways type hood again. That might be fun. I liked it last time. Perhaps that is the key, to try playing a different culture, and doing it that way. I could do an Oriental/Asian type theme. Anyway, suggestions would be really appreciated

    I hope you will show some pics from your new hood. I have only played one theme hood and that was for the Homestead challenge we had here. I still have it but I haven't played it for a very long time.

    I shoulda said thirties n forties. *edit: The camps were from 1942-46 i know what you mean.. real life has more than enough challenges.. playing Sims is supposed to be a fun and relaxing game. In fact i love it when funny little things happen unexpectedly in this game!

    Sounds very interesting! your theme and era sorta reminds me of the dreadful stories of the Japanese interum camps..survival during wartime during the forties n fifties. Good luck with it!

    Well today the word must be out there in the neighborhood among all the animals..Buddy ran outside thinking he could catch another squirrel or chipmunk but the alert was sounded and they all took off before I could even get the door opened! That deflated his ego a little bit!

    I do like the apocalyptic themed games, but the last time I got into it was when I had slower internet and could not keep up with it fast enough. Then my main laptop crashed and all was lost. It is hard to get back into the swing of things after that happens. I'll give this subject some more thought and if I come with any ideas I'll let you know..but for now I'm afraid I got nuthin. But please, if you decide on a theme keep us updated!

    Shhh..Don't tell Jake, but... Buddy killed a squirrel this morning! I have a big dog with an even bigger ego now...Seriously, he has caught chipmunks, but never ever a squirrel! I know he wants me to be proud of him..he actually is strutting around the house today like Mr. King Kong or something..but I am not happy about the killing of another animal! I mean, gosh I really thought I raised him better than that! I always glance outside before I let him out and there has been this little red squirrel under the bird feeder that takes his good old time to run away so I always jiggle the door to make noise before letting Bud out, but Jeff let him out this morning and did not remember to look first ...Good Heavens, I hope next time it's not a bear out there!

    Oriental/Asian sounds interesting. It is always hard to find the right stuff that you need but it is a fun search.

    I have been MIA from my Sims world for a while, and it crushes my heart to hear upon my return, that Nonni has passed. She was such a sweetheart and always willing to talk me through anything I didn't understand. I will miss her!

    Hello! I would really like some sort of door, just for pets! Not just a ordinary one you can lock and some, but a smaller one, like a cat door or a "half wall" doorway/arch or something. Have anyone seen anything like this for TS2 or have the knowledge to make one? I know i read somewhere how one could manipulate the gender specific doors... Thanks on beforehand

    I'm glad that the content is being kept on yahoo, I've joined several yahoo groups from site closings. I have several flash drives of saved content (almost 100 GB) and I make back-ups of my DL folder. When I'm financially able, I will invest in an external hard-drive. MSN hurt my feelings when they deleted content I had store on one drive. I had 15 gb's of storage for years and then they decided to lower the limit. I didn't respond in time as and they deleted it. However, I often downloaded things and saved it as attachments and emailed it to myself so I have all those emails saved in a separate folder. Then there's my box account and you can store things on Sims File Share as well.

    Today has been Jake has been on a mission all day to destroy the mats in the house and on the deck. He picks up the end of the mat, shoots his ball underneath, and then proceeds to attack the mat. Pipand I were watching him from time to time. Pip: He's a total nutjob. Me: Yeah, but he's kinda entertaining in a silly way and we are watching him. Pip: I would never lose my dignity like that. Me: Really? What about the time you and Squeak were racing around upstairs and you both slid under the railing and landed on the living room floor? Pip: We were testing the theory that cats always land on their feet. It was a scientific experiment. *flicks tail and stalks off* *turns back--By the way, I'm out of gushy food* Then he stalked off into the living room and ignored me for over an hour. Notice how Pip manages to get the last word in? He also actually smacked Jake yesterday, that was kinda epic. Jake was

    We've been having a lot of rain storms here the last few weeks. Tonight the power went out for about 5 minutes. That actually happens a lot for some reason but tonight it was different. We have satellite TV and the one in our livingroom is HD. After the power outage we no longer have satellite HD TV. It's going to take between 7 and 10 days for them to send us a new satellite kit, meaning the box, not the dish. Dave also thinks our TV got shorted out because no matter how we connect it we have no picture. So the teeny weeny TV from the basement is now in the livingroom. I'm finding it very difficult to watch TV that is not HD. Until we get the new box we won't know if the livingroom TV is pooched.

    Has anyone else done the Plantsim Challenge yet? It was included with the last update for free. Although I did complete the challenge, it took me two tries. Here was the result of my first attempt..Had just one more bean to go too!

    The dress is GORGEOUS! I finally downloaded Get to work, and outdoor retreat. (I know I said I would not add any EPs until they made 'PETS' or 'Seasons'...But I caved ). This dress will be a nice addition to the game, MM.

    We pay a small monthly fee to the company that installed our furnace and air conditionner which enables us to have them come twice a year to inspect both units at no extra cost to us. So on the 17th, the guy came did his inspection and was satisfied that everything is in good working order. Then he proceeds to try and sell me some kind of air cleaning system that involves UV lighting.....excuse me.....isn't UV lighting something that can cause cancer??? Plus he sees we have a dog and a cat and he still thinks we would want to expose them to UV lighting? Yep, I want to be inside my home slathered in sunscreen.

    I don't think I'm going to reinstall Sims3. I never did play it or learn how to make things for it. Plus---I went to sign into this site and was locked out again. The only thing I did yesterday was updated my origin account.

    You could try an Egyptian theme, or the 20's and 30's Flapper theme. Other than that, I've got nuttin.

    I hope you are feeling better, Marbi! Jeff and I were going to go camping this week, but the weather has been far too wet and chilly which really does a number on my back and arm. Jeff has RA so it is not good on him either. I know you will get back into the swing of things before too long..just don't give up on it!

    Yep, me too! One of our daughters used to bury her naked dolls in the backyard..We were a bit worried about her for awhile, but she turned out to be a great mom when she grew up, and I'm pleased to say her little ones are always dressed cute with their hair nicely done for school everyday, lol! But that option to dress the dolls in game sounds really sweet, Gina! I hope you get to feeling better and can have some enjoyment in making this new project which will also bring much enjoyment to the rest of us as well!

    I've never played a theme neighborhood ... I've always started with a few families and let things take it's course. Perhaps my next neighborhood I may consider a theme of sorts. I've been playing the same neighborhood since 2014 and sometimes I get bored. I'm such a slow player; in three years I'm only 4 generation in and only 2 of the founders and a dog has died from old age. Fatimah has a few more days left and she is the last of the first generation. I think I'm ready for a change and I'll be able to purge my downloads folder from stuff I can't remove now without corrupting my game.

    hahahahhaha we had a funny moment in our house this morning. The cat was using the toilet when my daughter went in to use it, and she was complaining she was kicked out of the bathroom by the cat :D Then she complained because she said the least he could have done was flushed....

    Sorry to hear you haven't been well Dressing my dollies and doing their hair was one of my favorite things to do as a child. Although, my mother might tell you I loved them best when they were naked and bald.

    Just bringing this back to the top to see if you (gayars) or anyone else has had any luck with such a thing. I don't want to be a pest - I surely understand RL coming first and all that. Right now, I am using a decorative wringer washer with an invisible item "Tend and Toil" on top of it. It's certainly not a perfect solution, but it keeps the maids busy while I am doing other things .

    So this morning Jake and Pip had a conversation....I think I interpreted it correctly. Jake: Morning stupid cat Pip: Morning dumb dog Jake: Ha Ha, the jokes on you. I get to go outside. Pip: Well I get to use a potty indoors so the jokes on you. Jake: I get a treat when I go potty. Pip: &^$%#() *stalks off angrily* They are starting to interact a wee bit more but it never ends well.

    Then you have to water the stump and it grows and become a tree. It is a bit like the magic tree that is in the game I think. A door opens in the tree and when you explore it you can find seeds there that you need if you want to be a plantsim. I have to find more information about this so I will know how to do.

    LilSister, I've missed you very much! I've been experimenting on the Base Game Toddler Dress and after 3 days I have two versions that I think are going to be adorable. It took that long because I had to tweak my templates several times to get the effect I wanted. According to my astrology sign I am somewhat of a perfectionist.
