Super Safi’s Monday Morning Musings 46 – Germany

Morning Musically-Minded, Medically-Minded, Masticators!

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “M”)

Over the past 600+ episodes, The Simpsons has taken us on an amazing journey involving music, science, and food to name a few concepts.

And what better way to start your week, then by discussing some of these concepts Monday morning?

So let’s get started this week by taking a tour to a country that plays a role in the forty sixth episode of our favourite family The Simpsons, German.

Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part, you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So, here is your Open Thread…..

Simpsons are all new tonight with a brand new episode at 8pm on FOX.

Thanksgiving weekend is nearing a close and so is Blargsgiving in TSTO. How was your Thanksgiving? (We fried our Turkey for the first time this year,  it was delicious!) Have you enjoyed Blargsgiving? Ready for Christmas?  Snow in TSTO?

How’s your Springfield design coming?  What are you doing with your town? Share some photos in the comments below! (If you need a refresher on how to add photos to the comments check out this post)  (don’t forget the Thanksgiving themed showoff this week.  Submissions are due on Tuesday.  More details here)

Any weekend excitement going on in your neck of the woods?  Holiday decorating?  Our halls are decked, the kids fought over who got to put which ornament on the tree.   They all ended up in one clump on the front of the tree… making memories.  Of course I happily fixed it later in the day. (And they only broke one…)

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of! (Just no politics, it never ends well)  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

Friday Filler- Thanksgiving Q&A


Thank Grog It’s Firday!


Wow! So…what a Thanksgiving! Right??

So many new ways to celebrate, without actually celebrating, unless you did celebrate by ignoring common sense, which may or may not have been an actual edict in your hometown, or was just a guideline…which we all know means “do what you want, we have warned you!”

You may think I am talking about Covid regulations. I am not.

I am talking about the vast number of ways people celebrate a holiday which has one of the shakiest origin stories ever…in ways that may or may not actually be putting their lives in immediate danger.

And more to the point…In Which Thanksgiving Traditions do YOU partake, that could be considered “Outside the Norm,” (especially since Norm was not invited this year)?

From the Mouths of Addicts: The State of the Game

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  It’s been quite a while since we last had a From the Mouths of Addicts Post, but there’s no time like the present right?

This email came in from Blue Drogo about his thoughts on the current state of TSTO, from a long time Tapper perspective.  I read his email and just thought it was well thought out and deserved to be spotlighted on the site.  

So without further ado here’s Blue Drogo -Alissa 

Hi fellow tappers,

I have been playing this game for 8 years now and I wanted to share my thoughts as an experienced player and how I think EA has been letting users down.

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “T”)

Friday Filler – Thanksgiving Lite?


Thank Grog It’s Firday!!


What a wonderful treat! Without prompting, without cajoling, EA saw fit to “keep the tradition alive,” and bring us a Thanksgiving and Black Friday update! Wooooo!! (I’d add a “hoooo” but, I’m still trying to get a handle on how thankful I really am!).

I’m not going to state the obvious…but the fact is, the huge burst of new Covid cases, and the resulting shutdowns, pleas, and out-and-out begging to be safe, has created a Thanksgiving that is unlike any in my entire almost-67-year-lifetime.  This is a holiday that is made for tradition. Families getting together in mass, to celebrate with far too much food, a smattering of drama (especially if the family is a “house divided over politics in an election year), and loads and loads of reminiscing about the “good old days!” 

Wait. Maybe, with all of the insanity going on right now, a “small family gathering” is exactly what we need.  Maybe Covid is God’s way of saying…CHILLAX!!!!! 

Or…maybe it is just part of the REST of the crappiest year in history…including this so-called Thanksgiving Event in TSTO. 

Let’s break this down… and decide if EA is worthy of our Thanks…or if it is Thanksgiving Lite, at best!
