The Pinnacle War PageThe Facebook & Zynga Podcast The Informant Podcast are the main sponsors of the event called " Mafia Wars Players For Charity".  They will be hold the largest mock war in the history of the game the weekend of Dec 10th - Dec 12th and 100% of the proceeds collected will be going directly to 2 charites, The St. Jude Children's Research Hospital &The Wounded Warrior Project. 
For those of you who never heard of Mafia Wars, it is a text based game by Zynga Game Network Inc., the largest social game maker in the world. The premise of the game is to do jobs, build properties, rob and ice other mafia members all while you try to build your Mafia Empire and become the best in the game. It is a fun and very addictive game for those who play and the players of these games are very passionate about it. It is also available on other sites like Yahoo, MySpace & coming soon to the new Google Games Network but Facebook is the biggest. The players of these games come from every walk of life, so it is not just kids. 
The game takes on a whole new direction on Facebookthat Zynga never antisipated due to the social networks ease of networking with people from all over the world. The players of the game on Facebook have added their own wrinkle to the game by forming their own Mafia family groups so they can all better communicate and are structured just like a real mafia family with Godfathers, Godmothers, Capo's, Soldier's, Hitmen and the list goes on. They are very organized and dedicated to the game and now they are pulling together to show everyone just how dedicated and together they really are by holding this event. 
The event is a Mock War, where as everyone just goes in and kill other players, a so called free for all battle. Only this time it is not to see who has the strongest family but to raise money for a great cause. They are all showing the world that mobsters do have a heart and are stepping up to prove it. This will deffinately be the biggest event ever for the game, Facebook and the charities who will benefit from the event.

    Zynga & Facebook Podcast Blog Followers

    For those of you who follow my blog on John Sweeney's podcast...as you know I have not blogged in 3 weeks.  I have not been able to due to personal issues and now my daughter having medical issues.  I totally lost my will to do anything.   I do hope to resume blogging about show very soon.   My guess is there won't be to many shows between now and the new year.  I will do my best to get a few in but if not once the new year is here i will start doing it again.  I know many use this to get information instead of listening to the show.  You should listen in for you can call in and ask questions etc.  

    Wishing you and your families Happy Holidays.

    Thoughts 11/1/10

    I have come to realize over this past weekend that for me there will be no man or love again.  I will never fall in love, have butterflies in my stomach, daydreaming about a guy, waiting for him to call, text,etc.  

    I guess I had my two loves and lost them both. One God took to be with him and the other well I never had a chance from the start. I will always love both men and they always have a special place in my heart.  

    I guess now my life is just being mommy, don't get me wrong that is awesome but would of loved to have that special guy too.  My daughter always has been and always will be my life.  I just sit and think wow in a few more years she will be out dating etc and have no time for her mommy and than I truly will be all alone. I feel alone and lonely now even though she  does keep me on my toes and don't have to much time to think about it.

    I am not a terrible person, I am good, sweet, loving and caring person.  I try to be true to my religious values.  Sure I screw up now and again. I just wanted someone to enjoy life with as well have fun with me and my daughter.  A man who would be good to us and keep us safe.  

    My daughter is so sweet she tries to make me feel better. She should only know that love is not as easy as she thinks. :-)  Or that people don't just break up as easily as she thinks or would like.  I just hope that she doesn't look at love in a bad way.  I wanted to her see the good side not bad side.  I want her having a positive view.
