Hello all! I'm Mayor Bucky from SimCity BuildIt. My city is named Ghipaland. You can call me Buck the Builder, Bucky, or heck even just plain ol' Buck.
In this article I hope to help guide some of the newer players away from things that harm them, or are unproductive. And you veterans will likely nod and smile, and maybe have input to share. I'm not going to dig deep into any one aspect, maybe that comes later. This article is more a general overview of the game. There are a lot of "nuts and bolts" articles on Reddit, by the way,
My SimCity BuildIt City Name
Ghipaland isn't some weird foreign language thing. It's not English either. Nor is it a really a real word. Yet, it is. Ghipa is what my granddaughter started calling me when she was just a little bitty thing. And the name stuck.
As a blogger, albeit part time, I am acutely aware that many of you are looking for information on Coronavirus and how it effects humans. Based on the title, if you're here, you may feel misled. However, this article is more on how Covid19 has effected us beyond the pandemic itself. I'm more interested in, as a society, how it affects us all as a whole. I would LOVE to hear your thoughts here! As the cheesy commercials say, "We're all in this together!"
Before I get going on this, I want to thank all of the long time readers of my articles. I have been way too busy with my day job to sit down and scribble out an article, let alone the 150+/- articles that I ought to have written in the last eight months or so. I also re-discovered love of SimCity Built It (article hopefully coming soon) in which I partake in my off-time. So, well, writing has been low on my list of things to do. There, I said it. Besides, I'm not much of a writer anyway. The number of times my articles have been read, and what some people tell me begs to differ, but all I can say is, there are meds for that, people. Y'all are cray cray. Yet, this morning, I'm sitting here remembering all the stuff I have dealt with these past few weeks and I figure, what the heck! Let's embark on a written journey. Or fiasco. Whatever.
The BBQ Pit Boys have an enormous following, and for good reason: they rock! So when I'm going to BBQ something on the grill, one of the first places I turn to for knowledge is these bearded rock stars of BBQ. This weekend we talked about cooking up some BBQ chicken, so of course I visited their website, bbqpitboys.com! We'd bought a large number of legs, however, poultry kinda of scares me. I brought the chicken, the Boys brought the expert advice.
Learn from the Best
BBQ cooking, or grilling, isn't rocket science. However, some of us, like me, are idiots with this stuff. I learned at the knee of my step dad how to BBQ as a child, but first, I did not pay attention, and second, he was much to impatient to teach. He was bad it teaching, that is to say. Adding to that, I have always preferred my meat well done. I know, zip it, I have gotten over that, learned the error of my ways.
