******* QUESTS *******

 FarmVille Ode To Olympus Farm Chapter 5 Quest

Can you believe it? We're already looking at our Chapter 5 Quest. Ode to Olympus is more than halfway done and the Day of the Dead Farm will be here soon, But, until then let's see what we'll need to do for this week on our current farm. Plant ahead because the CULSIA FRUIT,GREEK BEETS AND TRANSPARENT LILY CROPS Twill take 16 HOURS TO GROW if you need those bushels for crafting. Get a jump ahead of that crafting by pre-making 3 Rod of Asclepius and 2 Harpe in the Oracle's Keep. If you have 6 slots in your crafting cottage then you can also make an Aegis and be halfway through stage 3
(REWARDS) Deadly Fig Tree, you can also earn a Styx Ferry for those quick trips from the corn fields to hades, and there is even a Ferryman Ferret with oar in hand to pilot that boat, the Cold Flame Deer has blue flame crap in it's antlers, the Soothed Cerberus is a 3 headed dog or wolf or something, and finally we have a Raging Horse with a demonic blue flaming mane. I think they are trying to tell us to go to hades with this quest.

Galungam-ALL Farm Quest

The FarmVille Galungan Quest is our next all farms quest...It will start on Thursday September 8th and run for 2 weeks with the usual 9 stages. Galungan is a Balinese holiday celebrating the victory of dharma over adharma. It marks the time when the ancestral spirits visit the Earth. The last day of the celebration is Kuningan, when they return. The date is calculated according to the 210-day Balinese calendar. So it's kinda like a DAY OF THE DEAD. 3 days before it is customary to cook bananas for offerings. 2 days before they JAJA which are fried rice cakes. 1 day before the GALUNGAN it is customary to slaughter piggies and turtles for a feast, and then they spend the GALUNGAN holiday with a stomach ache from eating cooked bananas, rice cakes anr turtle nuggets.
Plant ahead for those crafting bushels. IRIS CROP TAKES 23 HOURS and HAWAIIAN GINGER, LAVENDER, PINK ROSE CROPS TAKES 46 HOURS TO GROW. Besides the usual consumables we can expect to earn a few new rewards such as the Gala Chakra Chicken, the Celebration Cow is a new tattooed cow. We have a new Yellow Sparkle Tree that's actually pretty cool, and finally we have a Festive Pegasus that doesn't have wings soooooo it's not really a PEGASUS. I'm just sayin', no wings means it's a horse

******* COUNTDOWN *******

Farmville’s State Farm Band Countdown is coded to start this next Tuesday. So, did STATE FARM sponsor this countdown? Or is it a typo meant to be State FAIR Band Countdown. Well, It really doesn't matter because the prizes don't really match either. So, we're just gonna call this countdown BARNEY. Why? Because why not, that's why. As always we will have 16 days of prizes and a 17th bonus reward for collecting all 16 daily stamps.

It's not just HUMP DAY it's new leaderboards day every Wednesday...The Leaderboards are a player favorite and a great way to easily earn Insta-Grows, UnWithers and Super Fertilizers. This week our LIMITED EDITION Crop will have us harvesting 6000 Shampoo Ginger. The Shampoo Ginger is a 23 hour crop that can be planted on any farm you'd like. The crop will most likely be available in the market about 13 hours before the release of the updated Leaderboards.

POLL of the WEEK
Last week in Farmville we saw the release of several new patterned RAMS and colored EWES. The Dirt Farmer wants to know. Are you BREEDING SHEEP? The response wasn't very enthusiastic with 78% of all who voted saying NO. Even the new patterns isn't enough to get them back into sheep breeding. Although 22% say they are Sheep Breeding. And if you are, then you need to join our sheep breeding group called GOT SHEEP You can find unique patterns and colors as well as having a safe place to share your sheep to those who really appreciate it.

We started Monday off with a LAND EXPANSION Sale. And BOY OH BOY was it a biggun'. It seems we could get a WHPPIN' 20% off Namaste India Land Expansions for a few days earlier this past week. But, if you missed it, please don't worry...why?
Because it was only a 20% sale

****** FACEBOOK  NEWS ******

For the past several months Facebook has been taking a lot of HEAT for their one sided political bias...Specifically in the attention given to their TRENDING STORIES. Many right wing pages have noticed that stories shedding a positive light on the republican side of any topic get buried while the left wing agenda seems to get spot lighted. In an attempt to rectify this Facebook has decided to announce a change. Oh, boy, this should be a big old bunch of hooey. Facebook’s trending topics is getting an update that involves eliminating the human element when it comes to describing why something merits promotion. The company is now relying on its algorithm and programming to display subjects and topics that Facebook thinks you’ll be interested in. With this move, it’s easy to think that the company is streamlining its efforts and reducing costs. On the other hand, it’s also a response to outrage heaved at it by critics that alleged that Facebook employed systematic political bias against conservative news. After an internal investigation, the company denied any human willingly suppressed content from being shown, but announced that it would end reliance on its Media 1K list, which was a top 10 lists of news outlets to draw stories from. Story descriptions are no longer being shown in trending topics, at least directly. In its place, simplified topics such as HASHTAG-Whatever...NASA, Britney Spears, or Donald Trump will be shown along with the number of people talking about it on Facebook. The company explained that its algorithm aggregates the number of original posts that mention the topic as well as how many shares of posts there are...or at least that what they claim...we will see because a lot of people will be watching this.

In some other Facebook news...Facebook is working on a way to let users activate Safety Check of their own volition. Facebook launched its Safety Check feature in October 2014 as a way to let users tell friends that they’re OK in the wake of natural disasters. The initiative was expanded to include other emergency situations, such as terrorist attacks, but the company has come in for criticism in the past for its selectivity in activating Safety Check for some events but not others. The underlying suspicion in many criticisms was that Facebook was demonstrating a preferential treatment to a specific region of the world, namely “the West.” This new proposed UPGRADE to Safety Check will allow people to activate the feature themselves. Seems like a good idea until people start misusing it. It’s not entirely clear yet how Safety Check would be activated by people or communities, or what situations would “qualify” for Safety Check. But from Facebook’s perspective, putting its users in control of activating the feature would not only help the public, but it would also distance Facebook itself from accusations that it’s biased toward certain regions.

 And still more Facebook news, because we really didn't have enough Farmville to talk about tonight. You know all of that talk about video being added everywhere? Well Facebook isn’t letting up — and it has now introduced instant videos into Facebook Messenger, meaning that within any text-based conversation, you can jump right into a video chat if it’ll enrich your interactions. This peer-to-peer capability is currently exclusive to Facebook’s Messenger app on iOS and Android. “Instant video is a reflection of the ubiquity of video,” Facebook said in a post. “We simply expect to have that ability in real time, all the time. With Instant video, you can bring your conversations to life in the most authentic way — seamlessly and instantly.” If you have an open Messenger chat and feel you could better communicate something with video, there’s no longer any need to load up an option like FaceTime or even make a video call through Messenger. Facebook now lets you create an ad hoc video conversation with a tap of an icon in the top right corner of the app. Audio is off by default because “sometimes you just need to see something, not hear it,” but you can enable audio, if needed. When enabled, your video will float on top of the active text conversation, and your friend will be able to share a video response if they wish. This feature is perfect for when you’re chatting with a friend and are curious to know which pair of shoes you should wear or what type of dessert you should bring them from the ice cream store, or you find yourself in any other situation where an impromptu video would add to the live experience. Since you’re also able to have group chats within Facebook Messenger, this offering may one day be applicable there too, but it’s limited to one-on-one conversations for now....the horror.
