Had one of the best Mothers Days’ yesterday EVER. The weather was fantastic!
First I came home Saturday night to find the house spotless- my oldest daughter cleaned the whole whouse for me! She left me a beautiful note. Highlight of the note read ” Mom. made you a space lovely so you could be lovely in it…”
Special kid, eh?
Had tea made in new Mothers Day mug, a nice lunch with my mom and family and then a good read with my new eReader. A perfect day!!!
We recently purchased the PlayStation Move accessory for PS3. It basically is like Wii remote for your Playstation 3.
I had a hard time sourcing out good games that weren’t just gimmicky- I wanted to find ones with good play value for our family. Here is a list of what I think are the best games for PlayStation Move.
Best Games PS3 Move/ PlayStation Move
is AMAZING . You use the controller like a “wand”. My kids went crazy for this- especially my son who is a huge Harry Potter fan. A must have if you are thkning of buying or all ready have PlayStation move for your PS3 system.
is similar to Wii Sports. Comes with six games- table tennis, Volleyball, Disc Golf and Bocce, Archery and a Gladiator game. This is a good all around family game.
LittleBigPlanet 2 also offers excellent play value and set to be released in early January. We LOVED the series and we are really looking forward to this much anticipated game to be used with PlayStation Move.
I have been playing an ALARMING amount of Bejeweled blitz this week. I have not been feeling well and my computer connectionh as been slow so I have been
wasting time occupying myself by playing the popular game from Popcap and Facebook, Bejeweled Blitz
Play Bejewled Blitz online here,
I have played versions of Bejweled ( Bejeweled Deluxe, Bejeweled Twist, etc) on and off for several years.
I am rarely in Facebook but went on at friends insistence to play another game, Wordscraper, but that is another post.
The game is basically about switching coloured gems and matching 3 or more in a row. I have been playing enough now to have figured out some Bejeweled Blitz hints, tips and tricks to pass on…
Bejeweled Blitz Hints, Tips and Tricks
The best hint for Bejeweled Blitz I can give you is to NOT stop playing. Just keep going… You will get bad boards- just keep making your matches. There is a speed bonus of 100 points up to a maximum of 100 points. If you stop and make no matches for 3 seconds it is reset.
This is about speed and a bit of luck. Some people find the stress of the music and time warning in Bejeweled Blitz too intense and turn it off. I found it does help to shut off or go into options and lower the boomer ominous voice.
A little known tip about playing Bejeweled Blitz is you can start to play right away- you dont have to wit for the “GO” icon to disappear- try it!
Power gems- Bejeweled Blitz power gem hint-Use these to your advantage. Move them away from side of the grid if you can where they will have more impact.
A good Bejeweled Blitz tip is to cluster like colours. This is hard to explain. If you cant get everything to line up perfectly then try and cluster the same colour Bejeweled Blitz gems near each other so when things start to happen you have better chance of creating chains and matches. DON’T get caught up in this- this is a one minute game so keep moving.
Hypercubes- blow up your hypercubes ( created by 4 and 5 gem matches) by switching with gem next to it. These will explode all the gems of that colour on the board- this means choose your gem wisely. I will sometimes set it up and leave as many of one colour as I can. ( if I have time and I am in the “zone”). Use this Bejeweled Blitz strategy to raise your score.
A great Bejewled Blitz tip is to play from the bottom of the screen. Play nearer bottom than top or sides if you can- better chance of things happening when the gems fall. They can’t fall if you are playing at the top.
Use up your power gems and multipliers as fast as possible. This is a game of speed, The only time to save is a hypercube- save that for when your multiplier goes up to 2x, 3x, 4x – but don’t wait too long!
Do you have any Bejewled Bltz Hints Tips or Tricks to share?
I would love to hear them? Any theories about this addictive game?

At New Direction’s ( our co-op) I have been teaching the kids Greek mythology each week .
This past week we reviewed some of the Greek gods and the Story of Arachne who boasted to Athene that she was a better weaver then the goddess herself and was turned into a spider and forces to weave for all of eternity.
I incorporate a hands on activity for kids to do while I read to them and talk about the different gods and goddesses. This week they learned to weave and made pot holders with small looms. It was a huge hit.
The kids of course are fascinated by the 3 brothers Zeus, Poseidon and anything to do with Hades and the Underworld.
