    Oh wow, @charlotteprice just gifted me my entire top 5 as well! Many thanks, and hugs to you :)

    All of you are wonderful, and I'll definitely do some more gifting of my own when I can get some working ads.

    Top 5 updated!

    @lauravonawesome here's the thing about Grandpa's Grove; the way they have the tractor track laid out doesn't work. You'll have to do some tweaking if you want to use the lot the way it is presented. The main problem is that the tractor is limited as to how much it can harvest in a single pass and the track passes too many crops to harvest in the one go. If I remember correctly it actually takes three passes. Still faster than doing it by hand, but I found it to be tedious game-play.

    But once I got the hang of it I really enjoyed it and found it very useful in playing a working farm. Also, if you place a SwiftGro Gardening Station within range of the tractor the tractor will harvest the plants within it. It makes the watering and fertilizing redundant, but I don't know that the tractor is using the highest quality fertilizer, while you can use the composter to make a few excellent quality fertilizer items go a long way.

    Good to know, thanks!

    Now that I own Stones' Throw as well, I'll definitely take your advice into account re: the SwiftGro station. That's awesome~ much appreciated :)

    I've found that lately when I can't send a gift on my PC I have been successful on my phone or tablet. Don't know why, but there it is.

    I love the interactions with the chicken coop. I also enjoy the Grandpa's Grove Tractor. Looking forward to the next farm I play. I haven't used the Milkin' It Dairy Corral yet. (BTW according to my research it isn't possible to tip a real cow. They are too aware, even in their sleep, to be thrown off balance by a mere human. They do weigh quite a bit after all.)

    Cow tipping is a total hoax. Its a misinformation for mischief recipe. Ingredients: a visiting city friend, some beer, a moonlit field with standing cows, some tall tales. Impart the 'secret wisdom' that they'll have better sneak skills in their bare feet. Sit back & watch 'em slip & slide in the mud & cow pies, then make 'em walk home. Well, It can pass for entertainment when options are limited and it *is* pretty funny. :D

    @lauravonawesome Relocated>Pneumonia>Broken Leg?! wow You've had a rough year so far. I hope it all turns around for you from here on! On the bright side - Alrighty, that's some really nice deal snagging going on for you! B)

    I am always low... the only ads I usually get are the suvery and they never work :(
    Hopefully you will get some useful ads soon. There have only been various videos for me.
    Never seen a survey among the ads so far. Though currently I am experiencing an ad-drought.

    My updated top 5:
    1. Apollo's Lyre
    2. Le Cirque Esprit Mystic's Table Shade
    3. Happily Ever After - Village Life Hairstyle
    4. Great Candelabra
    5. Rainbow Sherbet

    Happy Sim-ing!

    @Dusty_Boots I thinkit's safe to say that 2017 has not been my year lol~ hopefully the second half will be much smoother.

    Good news is, my cast comes off on Monday (hopefully for good) and I'll be able to go back to work next month. I'll have to walk with a cane for a bit, but the cool part about that is that my dad will be designing it. :)

    Thanks to the gifts from @Nomiko13 and @charlotteprice I was able to grab Lullabies for free~ thank you both!

    Thanks! I took some screenshots of my most recent Sim baby wearing some of the pretty outfits you gave me, so I'll have to post them soon :)

    Also just grabbed Jan. 2012 for 75~ sp since Stones' Throw gave me best of 2012 free, 75 sp got me the entire Edwardian Expressions/Steampunk Kitchen sets plus the Cow Plant. Yay!

    I got a really nice run of ads the other day, so tried to do some gifting of my own... Not sure what's up with the store though, since I seem to be able to gift some people and not others (which is a huge pain, since I really want to share the advert love lol).

    I usually get 2 working ads a day... but I got 500 sp from them yesterday morning for some reason (don't care, will take it lol).

    I finally wanted to thank you for trying to gift me the Retro Model T Dining Chair. I just wish you could get your simpoints back. :#<3
    I know that problem. If I get more than 3 ads a day I´m lucky. That´s during the day....
    However I noticed that I sometimes get many ads around 2-4 o´clock in the morning. But I´m much to tired to stay up that late o:)

    On a other note: Got the Lullabies and Nursery Rhymes set free this night B)

    Congrats to you @lauravonawesome for getting it free as well <3

    Please disregard. ( @LillaGrisen , thank you for your help )
    Top 5 updated

    Since I am now able to edit my posts, I have found my first post on this thread and updated my wishlist there.
    Is this the correct way to do this? Please excuse my new-ness.
    If the first post is not the right location to update my top 5 list then please let me know.


    Thank you so much for maintaining this great directory and thread.

    Don't worry about it ;)

    You are very welcome! I have been sick for over a week now. Very tired and exhausted. I think I have outgrown my sims, LOL. I don't even want to play them anymore. Maybe I will when I feel better! Hope all is well your way!

    All praise our wishlist ninja @charlotteprice! She has finally returned!!! :smiley::smiley: I hope you will get well soon! :) All the best!

    I haven't been active on the forums but have a look every day to see if something interesting or important is going on. Our doggy Suki is still recovering, but doing extremely well and we will have to start preparing her for her spaying surgery in ~3 months.
    Also haven't been able to farm any points recently, real life is real busy. :sweat:

    @lilrosaleen you want to put @ right before the names :) Not only does it make it easier for you to find people with more complex names but if you don't do it, the people you address won't get a notification that you mentioned them in a message and they can easily overlook it.
    I own the store since March 4th, 2017! Thanks to everybody who has helped me achieve this!
