December news

ON THE CAR... DJ THOR HAMMER !  LOL.. we got many pictures of him moving his body on that awesome car..  (err sorry Thor, you awesome too)

Land of the Three Moons, Moonscape  take the taxi, DJ is there on Thursdays, but there is music 24/7  You want to see this DJ Thor prance and do his moves, come Thursdays between, 5 - 7 pm pacific time.

CLUB IS ON AND ADULT Sim. no dress code, the inn however is sophisticated and elegant.
We've made a discovery- on our travels we meet a lot of very interesting and creative people. In reading a profile, we found another Pandora.   This one is owned by HCB Bear.  He has 8 themed sims, one of them being Pandora.

Land of enchanment based on the movie Avatar.  There is the main sim, a skydome, and Cassiopiea(largest space station in IW) to see.  

From Pandora, we were easily able to fly over and discover his other themes. He is also the owbner of East Coast 80's (the nite club)  check out his picks for the land marks... You will want to explore, all his other parks as well.  He is open to answering any and all of our questions.  Even explain the making of Pandora...  Bear assembled a wonderful crew of creative artists and kudos to him for acknowledging their contributions.
Next - a hidden underwater paradise!  
Where is this paradise... check creator/builder Gaudin Himmel for the land marks to his different builds.  Included is a big ballroom, that plays romantic music 24/7.. formal attire is appreciated. the floor is like a mirror you will feel like you are gliding across an endless sea.

There is a labyrinth of pathways not only above ground, but under the sea for you to explore.

Gaudin hosting China through the underwater ruins and mermaid and mermen playgrounds.


Did you see the advert?

Do you know someone who needs a puppy, kitty, or polar bear this holiday season? At the Virtual Kennel Club (VKC?) we have artificially intelligent, trainable animals that can:

    ? Develop their own individual personality
    ? Learn custom commands and tricks
    ? Be petted by you and your visitors
    ? Fetch toys or other objects
    ? Greet your visitors

Come and meet them in our VKC Park at   limo to park


Each pet in the Park has a name which you can see above their head. In these instructions we'll say the pet's name is Fido, but use the pet's actual name when you give your commands.

Fido listens to any chat that begins with his name or part of his name.  Say 'Fido come' and he will come to you!  You can also just say 'fi come' and he will respond to that too.  For the remainder of the manual, I will use Fido's full name in commands, but remember you can shorten it in any command.

You tell Fido what to do by saying his name and the command you want him to do, like 'fido sit'.  Fido starts off knowing some commands, and you can teach him new ones.  Anyone can give Fido commands.

Having had one of their pets in SL we can tell you, they really are fun, entertaining, and good companions. Look at the face! It is adorable.

Welcome to the Loft Blues Club - owners Dick Pinelli and Rusty Larimore have got it all decked out for the holidays... taxi

There is a lot to see there, not only her shop but that of her pal Cherokee Bravin  (owner of Cherokee Sensations  & Bravin Homes)and the other talented designers who are marketing their items in the Welcome area.

This week while we were there, China took us on a tour of Spirit Nation, you have to watch for the wild animals that can attack in the forest areas, but aside from that.. if you are into wilderness.. you got it here.  The best person tho' to tour you around and explain what is happening is Squanto Thorne. Look him up.

owner -China Dream  (profile picks)

a memory - It was Xmas time back in 2007 and Q was still learning my way around in SL (Second Life)  I remember wanting a log cabin on a mountain top.. Lots of snow, sunsets and maybe a view of the ocean.  With the help of my Tiny friend Awen we found the land easily enough, she being a veteran, next to my few months.  After searching high and low I realized to find "what I wanted" could take a very long time.  It was the holidays, Q wanted to get settled and decorate.

It can be a tedious task finding just the right "home for the holidays".. Ta Dah... fast forward to 2015 and look what is available to you..
