I guess I have been living under a rock a little more than usual... did anyone else notice this? [apparently a couple of new books for beginners coming out, I am liking what I see from the excerpt... have to find a few wazooleans under the couch cushions :) ] https://minecraft.net/en-us/article/how-structure-your-build

Whoa, forgot to mention that +David Dodgson has an article out in the latest issue of TESL-EJ, the free, everyone-is-already-subscribed journal of issues in ESOL. Participants in #evomc17 will enjoy reading this one :-)

woot! I've just discovered my first ZombieSpawner while mining near my hideout at the Mesa biome . This picture is after I neutralized it and the contents of the two chests that were in the room (yay for the saddle and music discs). :)

Roaming the server by myself these days, found this below +David Dodgson's Winterhouse. When a skeleton reached through to nail me I plugged the hole with a block of cobblestone.

My husband loves the sound of lava! I usually avoid them lol
He does because he knows that usually near lava, there is diamond!
He found a lava pit the day before, just when we were about to turn off computers. I asked him to wait for me to explore it with him. Almost 24 hours later, we did! After 4 hours (more or less) of finding a mineshaft, a ravene and mob spawners (spider, zombie, skeleton) and successfully deactivating them.... we are finally heading to bed! I had never seen a Skeleton spawner. This is the area below the village. Tomorrow I want to learn how to build an xpfarm using the skelie and zombie spawner! It should be fun!

My travels in distant lands today took me to an extreme mountains biome where I discovered the tallest mountain I have yet encountered.

Behold the newly named Mt. Stevens!
