The red velvet cupcake crumbles finishes the top of this hot chocolate off perfectly. A small price of R26.90 will be all that you have to pay for this absolutely marvellous hot drink.
The red velvet cupcake would compliment this drink well for a special kiddies treat or a family wanting to spend some quality time together, all would work well whilst enjoying the new Red Velvet Hot Chocolate from Mugg & Bean.

Sprinkle Islands is a great physics based game by Mediocre. It has a million plus downloads so far on Google's Play Store and the best part is, it's free. It's available for both Android and iPhone.
You drive around on a little red fire truck and put out fires that are all about the islands. The villagers that you have to save are called Titans.
You are given a tank of water and the less you use to put out fires the more points you get. There are also a lot of puzzles that you have to solve, by using a bit of physics.
The game comes with great graphics and the best part is that there are no annoying ads all over the screen. The only downside to it is that you get only eight levels to play and if you want to play more then you have to get the full paid version. For just 17mb I think it's worth a shot. You will definitely enjoy it although it's very short lived.

I planted some crops and got started again. The aim of the game is to grow your farm by increasing what types of crops you plant and what type of animals you farm. You start of with the basics, like wheat and chickens. You grow the wheat and covert it into chicken feed to feed your chickens. After a while you chickens lay eggs and you can either sell them or use them to make better products like, baking a pie or bread, land then sell those. The final products yield a higher income and those profits can go towards upgrading your farm.
The game goes well with Clash of Clans, because when you are waiting for things to be upgraded or completed in Clash of Clans you can kill time in Hay Day, and vice versa.
Give it a go, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Hay Day is available for both Android and iPhone, on tablet and iPad as well.

Rosetta was put into hibernation about 31 months ago after reaching its designated destination about 500 miles away from Earth. So it's still in our solar system.
Before Rosetta was put into hibernation the European Space Agency set an alarm clock that will wake it up in 2014. On Monday 20 January 2014, Rosetta successfully answered to that wake up call. Now tasks ahead for Rosetta will be warming up its star tracker sensors so that it can get co-ordinates for positioning itself. Then the probe will fire its retros to adjust its position so that its solar arrays can face the sun which will recharge its batteries.
Rosetta is scheduled to meet comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko in November this year and will be the first comet probe to enter an orbit around the comet, instead of just doing a fly by. Rosetta also carries a space craft, called philae, which will land on the comet to collect data.
This space mission is the first of its kind and is a must follow event for everyone.
My decoder and remote is quite old now and I occasionally had a problem with my Exit button on my remote. It was quite annoying when looking at the info on a program and then not being able to get rid of that pop up information.
I searched online and a new one was going to set me back a hundred bucks. There was no way I was going to do that. So I decided to strip my remote to see what the problem was.
Once stripped I noticed that their was a lot of oil build up behind the contacts, use a tissue paper to clean this up. Find the Exit button contact on the under side of the keypad, you will notice that there is a slight bit of wear in that area. Clean it up with the tissue paper and then gets a tiny piece of foil from your kitchen and cut it up so that it just makes it to wrap around the Exit button contact. Re-assemble your DSTV remote, pop in your batteries and you should be good to go. This is guaranteed to work saving you R100.

You gain resources in two ways i.e. by "farming" it yourself or attacking other villages and stealing it. Basic resources consists of gold and elixir. You get gold from gold mines and elixir from elixir collectors. Both can be upgraded to produce more resources per hour. And every time you upgrade the next upgrade costs more and takes longer to complete. Some upgrades can run into days leaving you twiddling your thumbs, which is the one thing I don't like about the game. Unlike the games rival, Castle Clash, you can play other parts of the game while upgrades are happening.
But the thing that makes this game interesting is a building called the "Clan Castle". The Clan Castle, once rebuilt, allows you to join a clan, which are other players around the world, and together with your clan you can help each other progress and defend your village by providing troops to each other. This gives you an advantage because even if you may be in a lower level, you can get advanced troops from you clan that will help you defend your village.
Apart from the clan support, joining a clan also gets you in contact with the clan members and you join in a live chat with them. My brother and I belong to a clan with a "unique" name called Game of Thrones. I must say that it's been better fun after joining the clan.
The game is great, but be prepared, this game can run into months of play if you don't want to spend money on gems that can be used to speed up build and upgrade time. Otherwise you can collect gems by cutting down trees and bushes and completing goals.
