Do Dragon City Hacks exist?

If you haven’t heard about Dragon City then you have never truly enjoyed the facebook browser based games. Dragon City is an online social game developed by Social Point which is based on simply training your pets, more specifically dragons.

What Dragon City is about?

If you are new to this game then you might want to learn more about it. Although the main idea of the game is to breed more and more dragons and fight with rivals but there’s a ton more fun and twists in the game play which can easily occupy you from dawn to dusk.
Firstly you will start on a mystical island with just one dragon. You will be guided to hatch and parent a new dragon which will eventually lead you to the part of the game where breeding of these dragons will take place. Breeding is important as it will deliver you with many new varieties of dragons which will later be used in battles effectively. That’s not the end of the game here. There are many things that you need to take care of like building farms which will be used to grow food which, of course, will be used to feed your dragons. Dragons need continuous supply of food so you just building a single farm won’t serve the purpose.

In game resources: Gold and Gems

Just like dragons there are many types of farms as well and they all produce different type of food. But it’s not that simple. To build more farms you need gold which in turn can be bought by spending gems. Gold and gems can be earned through many mini goals that are offered to you. Gems and gold hold a great importance in the game as your whole success is dependent on them. Without gems you won’t be able to buy gold and without gold you won’t be able to build farms or any other thing. Gems can be bought by real money as well to help boost your overall game progress but why should you spend real money when you can the same gems completely free of cost?

Dragon City Hack programs

This is true, now with the latest Dragon City Gold and Gem hacks now you can ease your way to the top of the game. These are completely secure hacks which provide free unlimited gold and gems. There are no hidden costs and you don’t have to go through a series of long installation processes of multiple softwares. It’s simple and effective. Just download the Dragon City Gold Hack or Dragon City Gem Hack and enter the amount of gold or gems after activating it. That’s it, a piece of cake.

Here We Go

Today our company comes.  The temp was 50 degrees when we woke up, and has been wonderful the last two days.  I gave the head weather god a big thank you for that.  I also requested five more days just like the last two.  We'll see what I get.

I spent some time out on the patio sweeping e91 and arranging plants.  My next job will be cleaning my bathroom and changing the sheets where daughter Susan will sleep.  Oh, and I probably need to sling a dust cloth around a little.  The carpets were shampooed earlier in the week.

Son Rodger will make the airport run using our van.  Their planes arrive within minutes of each other so we'll only need the one run.  Good scheduling.

We have this down to a science.  We all know the game, except this year Susan will be with us.  She hasn't see these folks in many years so we're all looking forward to being together.  They pay for their travel and hotel and we buy all the food.  There's no fighting for the bill when we eat out.  There's no cooking, it's either eat out or bring in.  Our expense, the least we can do. Works like a charm.

I think we're all looking forward to this time together.

There was no paper when Bob went to bring it in.  Not good, that can throw the whole day off.  It's hard for him to get going without working his word puzzles.  Remember me talking about not liking the word jumble puzzles?

Every day Bob asks me to look at the ones he can't figure out and every day I fail to solve the puzzle.  One day this week he handed me the paper and left the room.  That was my chance.  I took my handy dandy iPad and located an app to solve those jumbled words, it's called Solve It.  When he returned I had the puzzle solved.  He was shocked, couldn't understand how I did it.  I told him I didn't know either, that the words just came to me, and agreed it was amazing.  When I told him what I'd done he said "You're not supposed to do that are you?"  "All depends on how bad you want the answer" I told him.  Later he brought me his iPad for me to add that app.  I guess he decided it wasn't so wrong after all.

See you after the company leaves.

Health of Native Americans

I come across a lot of information in the course of a day, most of it barely touching my mind.  However, from time to time, I come across something that makes me stop and take a closer look.  Yesterday was one of those times.

A conference of Native American physicians have been meeting in Portland this week.  Modern medicine's approach has fractured the holistic healing practices of Native Americans, who have the worst health problems in the nation.  On some level I've known that for years.

What I did not know was "the life expectancy for Native Americans is 63 years compared with 74 for the general population. In South Dakota, the median age of death is 81 for the general population; 58 for Native Americans."

"The statistical differences continue: The death rate among Native Americans from diabetes is three times as high as the general population's; six times as high from alcohol; more than two times as high from accidents and 60 percent higher from suicide."

The statement that stopped me in my tracks was this one: "We need to address the underlying wounded spirits, the loss of culture, the loss of land and how that affects people's spirits."  Wow.

I encourage you to read the article, it's interesting.
