Congrats on your shroud business deal. Did you learn that fron "The Art of the Deal" :-)

Seriously, good job. Is your new iPad the one with the bigger screen? Let me know how you like it.

Have you upgraded to the latest iOS? 10.something? I want to do it but I'm a little edgy about it, especially since I don't have a Facebook account...

Thanks! I ordered the 9.7" screen, rose gold, 32GB.
On my current iPad (iPad Air 1, 32GB) I'm running 10.3.1. With 5.1 GB available. I've been having issues with my games closing and having to restart them. Not just DV but just about all of them. I don't know for sure but I'm betting my phone is tired of being a hotspot host. The apps not needing an Internet connection run just fine. For both devices to have lasted 2.5 years of near constant use , well, that's why I ordered another ipad and another Sammy. I do feel confident enough to say 10.3.1 is safe.

As a precaution, take a screen shot of your park ID and email it to yourself. If there is a problem with your game then you have your ID handy and BFS can restore your game. :-) Tap on Options, Park ID (bottom green button). By emailing it to yourself it can be looked up with any device that has email installed. So, if for any reason you have to reset your device, you won't have to restart DV.

The 9.7 is the normal sized version. The big one is 12.9 inch, way too big for me.
My son wants an ipad mini. He drives for Uber and wants something that holds all his music and will stream movies between customers and can be easily hidden when he's out of his car. He has a 7" android tablet "but mom it's not apple". Oy. I told him wait until he is eligible to upgrade and see what they have to offer.

Your son drives for Uber? That sounds cool. Does he do well there? We always see stories on the news where Uber drivers get robbed or encounter strange passengers...has he had any of those kinds of experiences. Here in Western Colorado, we're kind small for Uber...40 miles away from me, in Grand Junction, an area of about 70,000 people, they started an Uber operation. As far as I heard, they had 3 drivers...don't know if they are still operating here. I've often thought that would be a neat job for me.

All - I hope all of you moms had a wonderful day...tomorrow, back to the grind... :-)

Son drives for Uber and Lyft to supplement his regular job. He usually gets passengers at the Airport and the business districts. He doesn't do the club scenes. He's a pretty good sized fellow that can take care of himself if needed but he's still careful who he picks up. He did this full-time until his car started needing all kinds of work and he traded it in. Once he saw the miles piling up on his new car he went back to a regular job but kept doing uber & lyft in his off time. I was REALLY glad to see him go back to a normal job. No matter how old our kids get we parents always worry about them. :-)

Hey all, happy belated Mother's Day to all the mommas!

DRM how do I not remember you have a son?! Is he your only child?

GPK My sister drove for Uber before and after her main job (teacher) and loved it! She made good money too and didn't encounter anything weird.

SI my son's book is geared toward youth for sure so I'm not sure you'd enjoy it but getting feedback from all types of readers would be a great plus if you feel like being a guinea pig for it once he's done!

DG I was going to ask if it was almost potato/onion time! Didn't you say it takes 90 days for them to grow? Are you still installing your kitchen flooring? Ours is still sitting, waiting to be installed, almost two years now....sigh. Oh well, it'll happen when my husband makes it happen!

I've been swamped with getting stuff for son's graduation party made or purchased and have made a few more trips out of town and will have company in for a few days again but it will all slow down in 2 or 3 weeks, yay! Still need the Singularity dragon but did get Nova and Cyclone.

Repair the rift BFS!!

Yes, he's an only child. I not only have a son, I have 2 wonderful grandsons. :D The oldest will be 11 on May 23 and the youngest will be 1 on June 1.
Son upgraded his tablet to ipad mini, switched to an unlimited plan and his cell bill is going down $50 per month. Must run in the family. :-)

Good stormy day to you all! So, I'm not out in the garden (thank you Captain Obvious...) and I'm just sitting. I've finished a book today and about the only thing I feel compelled to do today is clean bathrooms before I go to work.

DRM - How awesome is your new iPad???? I have an Air 2; I almost waited for the Pro to come out but couldn't be away from the Vale for that long - Dragon withdrawal you know. I think I read GPK saying it was a Rosegold? Or GPK, did you get one, too??? Lovely, lovely. Let us know how you like it!

GPK - it sound like your music is coming along great. I envy those with musical talent. You ever see the episode of M*A*S*H where Charles amputates the arm of a concert pianist? He (Charles) said he could play the notes but couldn't make music. I'm a bit like that...I'm so glad (and I know you are too) that you have that talent. DId I miss it or did you go for the gig at the coffee shop? (I'm WAY behind on posts!!)

SI - Congrats on your iPad as well and Happy 70th!!!! - you go, girl! I think it is so cool that Tuffy and the gang got you one - our men do indulge us, don't they? :). Have you spent much time at the cabin lately?

FP - how smart you are to remember that it is planting time for me, with all you have got going up there! Yes, I got my carrots and onions in before the rains set it, the potatoes are cut and drying in the basement ready to go in at the end of the month. I WOULD be planting lettuce this week (as it's supposed to be cool again) BUT a certain CAT I know got on the table at some point and tore open my package of seeds!!! Not the Okra, radish, or green bean seeds, just the lettuce. So I got to wake up to that this morning. I salvaged what I could in an envelope but if the rains don't ease up a bit this week I won't be able to get out there at all. I did get your e-mail and hope to get back to you on that soon... I hope things settle down for you quickly.

I stayed up until two this morning working on my newest island. I've turned it in to a 'dream' island, which freed up tons of space on my crowded 'dark' island, so naturally I had to work on that one, too! I still don't have Singularity and am trying with my Nova, but no luck yet - anyone else get it? I did get the Cyclone fairly easily, but don't have the ped yet (I don't think). We've had pretty fierce storms here lately, and lots in Omaha are without power. Most of the heavy stuff is staying south of us but we've had quite the light-shows the last couple of nights. The guineas were resistant to come in early last night even though the sky was rumbling and lightning all over the place...I still had to chase them down to get them in, and just made it back in the house before it started getting really nasty. We've got storms predicted all day, but we've already had some heavy rains and I haven't seen them in a couple of hours; hopefully they're in the Ghetto where it is somewhat protected.

I hope all the moms had a great Sunday - I spent mine in the garden; son 2 brought over a Dairy Queen ice cream cake and helped me in the Ghetto with some projects that needed doing. All in all, a very good day.

Well, it's after 2 and if I'm going to do bathrooms I need to do them now before I get cleaned up for work. You all take care!

Mine is to be delivered tomorrow 5/18 and I'm sooo ready. This one, an iPad Air 1, is getting worse and worse about freezing up, kicking me out of apps or not even loading them. The fish event isn't going so well but it makes me grateful there isn't a DV event happening.
I'm getting the rose gold and have changed my mind a bazillion times on ordering the pencil and choosing a case. I think I'll stick with the Smart Cover that protects the screen and serves as a stand. I never take it anywhere so I don't need a full fledge case, just something to hold it up for videos or games. The next couple of days will be crazy as I set up a new phone and iPad. Hopefully the iCloud backup will make it easy. It will be nice to play without restarting games over and over. Dragon withdrawals are a real thing!

Thanks for the heads up with Logan; he has an iPad mini and I'm giving him my old one so new one is off limits!

DRM the Komen walk was great. There were so many positive happy women and men there! I was surprised at the number of men breast cancer survivors. I have to tell you that next to the survivors tent, the porta potties were pink!

FP I am heading to the cabin with Jeff and Logan this weekend. Jeff was there last weekend and it started snowing Saturday; he said hummingbirds flew in from every direction and spent the storm on the feeders. He hangs 12 feeders but two small ones are the favorites. When they ran out of food Jeff went out to bring them in to refill. He said you'd swear there were a thousand buzzing flies were out there, and birds kept trying to get on the feeders as he was carrying them. Sounds like horror movie material!

Still no Singularity.

Have a good evening.

I value the keyboard I got with mine - makes typing on the forum a whole lot easier. Have fun with it, enjoy! I know I was grateful to get mine after all the restarts, etc. Are you still playing Flutter? I've been thinking of giving that one up. I can get all the event butterflies because I have 5 or 6 butterflies that lay eggs for free, quite a few that speed up the eggs and chrysalis', but there is no room for all the butterflies! I hate keeping things in storage - that is one of many things I like about DV - we can have all the dragons out at the same time - at least one of every kind, without having to put any in storage. Our call if we want to have more than one of a kind out or not. In Flutter, they don't give you the option. I'm undecided at this point, but usually only go in a couple of times a day to gift and collect pollen.

SI - the cabin sounds wonderful! All those hummingbirds! Back home (AR) the same thing would happen - they tried to hit the feeders as we were carrying them to the stands. Amazing creatures, I hope they bring you pleasure! I've yet to see any here this year in NE, I do have my hanging baskets up, but it has been so windy and cool I haven't seen any at my feeder. It is still early days yet; spring is still in it's warm/cool thing. RIght now we have low 60's after 80's the last couple of days and still blowing out of the north.

Off for now - take care!

...from me it's 36 and has been snowing since 4:00 PM. Here it's 43 and raining...seems like most of the west/mid-west is having crumby weather...the Rockies were rained out in Minneapolis.

Oh, yeah, yesterday I got a Nova & a Cyclone...

EDIT: Lynn - I blew thru 800 Gems Speed Breeding your Level 19 Singularity with my Level 19 Nova and finally got it! Thank you! Then, I hatched it, fed it up to 19 & bred it with yours again and presto! I got another! I'm on fire again! Double thank you! Spending only 800 Gems on it is a bargain compared to outright buying it!

I decided against the apple pen and chose a precision stylus instead. I'm wanting to color again and the stylus will get those tiny places with a bonus of no batteries going kaput.

Which keyboards are yall using? I have a logitech Bluetooth keyboard with windows shortcuts that I use for spreadsheet editing. I've been wondering if an apple keyboard would make that much of a difference.

DG yes I still play flutter. Please don't stop, at least not yet. I only have you and FP to exchange gifts. In splash, I have you and my sister. If I lost those games I'd be down to DV and coloring. That means I'd have to find real life stuff to do, like laundry and cleaning house. Horrors!! :O :-/ :'(
Did you know you can sell the butterflies and still have credit for hatching and completing them? I keep the ones with abilities in the forest and store event butterflies I couldn't complete or the lowest earners.

I'm still waiting for new ipad to arrive. I'm hoping that the restore from icloud backup has my artwork.
They have added a subscription in order to color all the pics. The whole reason I recommended the app was because they didn't require a subscription. We paid to use the full app and then they do this? Pretty disappointed right now.

No worries on the artwork. I had some saved to the iPad. CT does say to save to your device to keep from losing our artwork. I had a lot saved but not all. Some are saved on Instagram and Facebook so if need be I can get those back. There's also the iCloud restore, which I'm trying to do if the new iPad will cooperate. I love gadgets, maybe too much, but sometimes I seriously want to throw them across the room. ;-)

New iPad is here but they didn't include a SIM card. I'm trying to set it up using my Note 4 as a hotspot device. It's not working so well but it's also storming so that may be a problem. Customer service thinks there is a SIM card built in? I haven't been able to get into settings to check.
I have the new S8 charged and trying to set it up. It's been "checking network " forever now. I may be going to a T-Mobile store tomorrow to sort everything out. On the bright side, they are both gorgeous devices! All shiny and new and .... the geek in me is both excited and frustrated.
But hey, we have fresh baked lemon-sugar cookies! Mmmm! Mom's hairstylist's daughter was selling cookie dough for school prom. I picked a good day to bake them, lol. I guess we're celebrating Kairos' birthday. Y'all think he likes lemon cookies? ;-)

GPK/SI: SI - I'm sorry I missed it it your post (was focused on the hummingbirds) but it is SNOWING??? OMD - in May, no less! And the hummingbirds are still there? GPK, have you just had rain where you are? (That's what we have now, in the 40's tonight)

DRM - I have a Logitech Bluetooth keyboard. The batteries are supposed to last 3 - 4 years, but mine piffled after 2...still not bad at all and they're relatively inexpensive. Sorry to hear you're not up and running yet on either device, but I know you're loving the new gadgets! I won't quit Flutter - how are you gifting FP? Send me the info - I get a "Sophie Marie" (she said that was a family member's FB name, but I haven't any idea how to find that name without more info. The cookies sound wonderful! I'm a huge fan of lemon but not hubby - so I don't make much with citrus (more's the pity).

So I haven't been able to find but five of the presents, and I didn't even know there was an update until about 9 tonight. They are hard to find! But Happy Birthday to Kairos - I'm sure he loves lemon!

GPK - I tried (unsuccessfully) to speed up my Nova with SI's Singularity - I didn't go through 800 gems though...I figure if I'm going to spend that much I may as well buy it. I did speed up through three 24+ hour breeds though - ugh! Good thing this is not a limited dragon, and congrats on burning again with Cyclone and Singularity! I am tempted to go back in there and keep trying but right now I have a 2-day breed going with SI, perhaps when it gets down to just one day!

Not much else to report today, spent the day doing more housework and just enjoying the rain and the games. Although I did have to take another cat to the vet for a 'condition' on her chin. Not mites, not mange, just some ugly kind of thing there. So tomorrow she starts antibiotics and steroids...oh boy! Another animal on meds! :)

Off with me, you all take care and stay warm! DRM - hope your storms aren't too bad tonight.

It should be easy enough for them to do, easier than calling customer service. I hope moving my data from one phone to the next is as easy as the instructions included show.

As you earn essence you decrease the amount of time you have to wait to activate Kairos.

Edit: Oops! I got that wrong, sorry everyone!

essence levels up Kairos and increases the amount of time he is able to speed up eggs, crops, breeding etc. His normal speed up is 6 hours. Earn essence to level him up. His next speed up is 7 hours.

How many presents are strewn around our Parks on a daily basis?

Email: rkchurch64_at_gmaildotcom

Proud Member of the DVFD

Dreamn's picture

There are 7 presents hidden, 2 Blue, 1 Purple, 2 Red with white trim, 2 White with red trim.

I was wrong on Kairos, sorry. The essence increases the time he speeds things up, no effect on the counter between activation. For example, before essence he speeds up eggs, crops etc by 6 hours. It takes 1000 Eternal Essence to add 1hr to Kairos' speed up, taking 7 hours off eggs, crops etc.

When you level up Kairos, it resets his timer. So you likely want to activate, then upgrade, then collect, then activate again.

He goes up to level 19! At that level, he speeds your park up a full 24 hours!! Also, BFS has confirmed that collecting Eternal Essence and leveling up Kairos is a permanent addition, so we can still do it after the 22nd.

Thanks to DragonVale Community for the tips. :-)

At the cabin with all the hummers. And remember last fall I talked about the Momma whitetail deer and her spotted babies at the apple tree? The babies are big now and Momma is not with them but they are at the tree again in the evening. Pretty awesome! I can't wait to get up, have coffee and go for my walk! How lucky am I!,

Last year, in the back yard of my friend's condo, a doe gave birth to 2 fawns. Now, there are 3 deer who hang out there, a doe & 2 smaller ones...I'm guessing it's the mom & the 2 kids from last year.

You ARE pretty lucky, but then so is Tuffy, Logan & the rest of your family. :-)

Thank you! I'll work a bit harder! I think I get a little irritated when you go into edit mode, the menu stays and you can't see as much of your park. Or am I doing something wrong there too?!! And if I'd retread posts I'd see you already explained gifts (blushes) .

GPK you are too kind!!
I wouldn't be surprised if it is the same doe and kids. I'm not sure where our momma was/or how long they hang with them before breeding again.
Congrats on singularity!! I keep getting Nova's and that darn Lodestone! 25h 30m. Sheesh!

It's even worse when playing on a phone where everything is so tiny. You wouldn't think it would take much to make those buttons smaller.

Have you seen the new addition to the Dragonarium? There's now a decoration folder. Open it and you can easily see all the decorations, which ones you have and the ones you're missing. If there is a green hour glass on a section that means there are limited items available. Thanks BFS! :-)

...800 Gems Speed Breeding for the Singularity so of course, after I got it, they started giving out Eternal Essence Points when you spend Gems...talk about timing :-(

So....I've only been able to boost Kairos up one time - I can't get the essence! And I see in the gifts menu that gifting essence logo is there - has anyone received any essence through gifting? I still need one 450 essence to level him up again, but it's either spend 420 gems to power him up again or speed up eggs/breeding to get the essence. So, is it worth it?

GPK - you do have the most incredible weather! It does sound perfect there...alas....I will be content to be your neighbor to the east and take what is given (bloom where you're planted!).

So after a week of rain (about 6" total) today is sunny and mild and that means garden for me. I'm trying to wolf down a couple of cups of ambition before I head out. I need to mow and try to get my fence started. It should be relatively easy to get the fence posts in, it's wet but not too muddy right now (we didn't have rain yesterday either). Unfortunately, it's supposed to storm again tonight so I've got to try and get some of this done when I can.

DRM - so glad everything is working for you now! Congrats congrats and I hope you have many fun years with your new pad.

SI - how lovely to see deer! They are such beautiful, inoffensive creatures (unless they're eating your crops) but I'd give them all I had to see one on our property here.

Off with me - wanted to pop in and say hi. Take care!

The essence icon and the coin icon under gifts are there so BFS can refund players if something goes wrong. Also, who knows, maybe someday they will enable a gifting option. :-)

I've only leveled up 1, that's right, one, since I got those two...they are a waste of space.

I got a singularity! I'm burning again so it's time for bfs to throw another something at us!

DG I've gotten essence at least once a day at the race track. It does take some time to level up but racing helps.

Off to bed with me! Zzzzzzzz

When replanting treats click on the type of treats you wish to grow. I've noticed clicking on "regrow..." sometimes gives different treats than what it shows.

DG - You ARE the Dragon grower...what levels Light & Flash did you use?

SI - You were right...they barely left us enough time to catch our breath...

I can sympathize w/the Sandbox guy...but hey, we have the other DV app by The Next Flow. I've been using it a lot lately and I like it. When we have an event and they have the Name That Egg contest, I always use it to name the Eggs that I can't remember...I guess we'll survive...

I just hatched a Leviathan dragon. The egg was so cool I used gems to see what it was. Then I didn't have room in the sunken habitat nor the $3 million needed to upgrade so I bought another sunken habitat and used gems to speed build it. That is one cool looking dragon and earns a fortune compared to other DVW dragons, $2496/hr at level 15. It looks silly in the habitat unless it's upgraded. The pond is way too small. Don't worry my pretty, I'll fix it up for you soon. ;-)

On Singularity I finally quit using Nova and used my level 20 gold with Lynn's Level 19 singularity. It took three tries but I got essence speeding up!

Didn't even burn 24 hours. sheesh!

DRM thanks for clarifying treat farms. I noticed I wasn't always getting the treat I asked to regrow.

Having a hard time finding the treasure chests? Try changing the island theme to cold or wonderland. The white background helps the brown chests stand out better. :-)

Missing decorations from your favorite event? Check out the decoration sale. To make it easy to see what your missing just click on Dragonarium and the new Decorations tab. Lots of limited decorations available at half price! Some cost gems but most cost DC. Happy shopping!

Edit: I forgot to mention the island themes are also on sale.

Thank you for not quitting Flutter! I receive gifts from Sofie Marie, whom I've always thought was FP? When I open the gifts section to send gifts she shows as Flwrpot1.
I splurged and spent real $ in the app to hire a glow bug. Trying to get enough bucks to level up the painted lady. It's my only egg layer and I'm kinda excited to have one.

Guess who's going back to the T-Mobile store? They cancelled my ipad internet. Somehow it was set up as prepaid instead of postpaid and they are unable to change it over without putting in a new SIM card. They put a note on my account that there would be no charge for the new card.
It was quite a surprise to see I had no internet. Kudos to T-Mobile for excellent customer service. They did everything they could to try and reactivate the SIM I have.
I wonder if the prepaid set up was also the reason I couldn't download upgrades over 100 Mb.

I usually don't toot my own horn but,..... I NOW HAVE EVERY DRAGON, EVERY PEDESTAL, AND EVERY DECORATION!!!! I wasn't sure if it were possible or not to breed SF dragons outside of the season or an event or not. At first, I wasn't going to try and collect more than 1 pedestal because they all look alike (same for Monoliths, I got the Monolith peds I was missing during this years Easter event.) I was bored at work and decided to see if breeding SFs were possible. I looked up the peds I was missing and gave it a shot. I had SF1 pedestal and all 5 of the SF dragons. Power bred through about 500 gems and earned A LOT (over 2500) of Kiaros Essence in the process!!! Wooohoooo me!!!!!

Woohoo congrats Chris (KG2) you go ahead and toot that horn!! Impressed by every ornament too., that's dedication to put at least one of every rock, tree and flower! !

All- my son officially graduated tonight! I feel like the genie from Aladdin, "I'm free!" I'm sure he was happier but I was a close second, lol. Now it's up to him to have the initiative, drive and patience to make what he will of his life!

I'll have to catch up and see how you've all been doing but that will be tomorrow; I'm partied out!

Repair the rift BFS!!
