Re: 1768: "Settling"

It's hard to tell when you don't voice your whole environment, relations, identity, history and more. :roll: Do you use a Facebook a...

Re: 1663: "Garden"

I put a red light on the non-stilted platform, and now it has a turtle and a cactus! (My computer hasn't been on very much lately, so it hasn't had long to grow.)
