✔ December 4, 2013

Good morning! Yesterday was a Minecraft day. I haven't quite gotten it out of my system yet I guess. Not sure how long that will take, but in the meantime crafting & Sims have taken a break. I got the mail, cleaned the house, sent out the grocery list & then loaded up Minecraft. The 1st pic is my original spawn point in the game. The 2nd pic is a pretty sunset, 3rd pic is my "neighborhood", which is great because I have everything from sand to dirt to wood to water available, 4th & 5th pics are my 1st house ... 16 X 16 w/ oak wood slab floors, lots of lighting inside & out, glass block pattern in the ceiling for lots of light during the day, lots of glass windowpanes, a cobblestone walkway & fence, & soon a wood fence surrounding it w/ even more light (I ran out of time last night).

TECHNICAL SUPPORT: There are some reviewers posting that CheckPlease is calculating the tip wrong. CheckPlease is calculating the tip correctly and does not tip on tax if you have a tax rate set. If you think it is calculating something wrong, then contact me at or in the forums, and I'll help you.
The most common error users have is they have rounding turned on, or they have a tax rate set. Tap the (i) button and turn on the "Heads up Display" in the settings to see how CheckPlease is breaking everything out. 

Check w/ local shops for recycling options. Many UPS Stores accept foam packing peanuts. Grocery stores & big box retailers often have recycling bins for plastic bags. Some home centers offer drop-off bins for used compact fluorescent light bulbs & strands of Christmas lights.

December is a month of surprise visitors so have plenty of aerosol cheese & your lucky
toilet plunger ready. Also keep plenty of bail money around just in case.
