TIFFANY’S COLLECTION

So, yesterday I saw this beautiful ad for yellow waterlilies by Tiffany's Collection. I loved them right away and I figured they would look great at the Retreat.


The website said 25L$ if you buy them at the store, so I went. In order to get that special price, you have to join their group, which is free. I did and nothing happened, it denied me the water lilies. I really wanted them.

I wrote a message to Tiff herself who is the owner of the store and told her about this issue. I was very happy when Tiff got back to me and invited me to come back to the store so she could help me solve the issue.


This was such fine customer service from her I would most definitely go back to the store. There are lovely things here and with the special offers to her group members, you cannot go wrong.

Look at how gorgeous my beautiful waterlilies look in my pond. I love them. Thank you, Tiff for the great product and your kind customer service. Huggs!!!

Bright light city gonna set my soul....

Gonna set my soul on fire
Got a whole lot of money that's ready to burn,
So get those stakes up higher
There is one pretty woman waitin' out there
And she is all livin' devil may care
And I'm just the devil with love to spare
Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas!!!


               Well, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, so the saying goes. We won't tell.
We were actually at Rock Candi's Vegas Show. Which was pretty amazing, because Candi is such a great builder and changes her club every Tuesday into a theme.

Up to no good?

My mother always said when I am not doing anything and I just sit there 'I'm up to no good'. I had to look up that term and in the urban dictionary, it describes it as someone who is acting suspiciously and/or is doing something naughty.


I am always up to good. I write, research, think(maybe some naughty things here). In fact, I wrote this poem a few year back and that was when I had a lot of time on my hand(which is another term I have to research further, darn English confuses me.)


TIME
Use your time you got with thought,
Never waste it on a useless plot.
Whether you are white or black
You get the same amount in fact.

If you procrastinate by day
And only take the time to play
You may soon ask yourself; oh no,
Where did all your time go?

Each day you live and breathe
Be thankful for that time and seize
The moment in your thoughts and mind.
Good things come for those who are kind.

When you are young and new
You never think of time, not you.
But as the years pass by
Time is important and now it does fly.

Today is a good day to start
And do what is in your heart.
Now is the time, the moment of today
So get up and get on your way.

Time stands still when you dream
You fly over rivers it may seem.
So each night take the time
To dream and fly mountain's climb.

Never regret the time that's gone
It never comes back to anyone.
Look forward to the hours you share
With friends and family everywhere.

In the autumn of your life,
Don't forget to kiss your wife.
Seconds now pass quicker, it seems
One day you walk in Heaven's beams.

I better get busy with some home projects before my time runs out...

'Man'icure and 'Man'scaped

Well, it is certainly not illegal for men to paint their toenails and why should it be?

An emerging breed of man, the metrosexual, shows his soft, sensitive, feminine side. If you have never heard the word " metrosexual" then get ready for it. It is not a new term, it has been around, but it describes those men who do take care of their feet and hands and go to the beauty salon rather than the barber. 

They love shopping and trendy things. and no that does not mean they are gay, not at all. They are very heterosexual.


Every man should go out and pamper themselves a little once in awhile. That does not mean to just take a shower and brush your teeth. Get that beard trimmed and that hair styled. You are not a caveman, we passed that era. Don't be a hairy ape...trust me no woman wants that. 

Experts say many women now want their guys to take it off, take it all off – from eyebrow tweezing to the intimate waxing procedure jokingly called a “boyzillian” or “bro-zillian.” There was a time, not all that long ago, when the well-groomed man kept his hair cut short and his beard trimmed. Maybe, if he was really dapper, he got his nails buffed, too.


That’s not enough anymore for some, and an increasing number now regularly go to get “manscaped,” i.e. pruned, waxed, plucked, threaded and shaved from head to toe.
So, there you go that is the expert advice on being a well-groomed man. Once you do all that you will look debonair.
Much better now. We'll take about that ear hair later.

Happy 14th Birthday Second Life! Let us PARTY together :)

Amazing when you think that Second Life has been around for 14 years. So when people tell you it is just a game, well not. There are studies out there that a game lasts only for a little while and eventually fade away.

I look forward every year to the big celebration for the birthday in Second Life. It gets better all the time. So many great artists here and too little time to see it all. 




In honor of second life's birthday bash called Carnivalesque, we will have our very own SL party here at the Basement Club.
Wear a costume or mask and be part of the celebration.

June 25th 6-8 PM SLT

A little piece of Happiness....

Happiness is something everyone wants to have. You may be successful and have a lot of money, but without happiness, it will be meaningless.
Happiness is a decision you make. It is absolutely free and available to everybody.

All this month of June we basically celebrate our 1 year anniversary being together. We have known each other more than that. We have been to each other's weddings and were happy for each other. We have been there when the heart ached of disappointment. We have been friends and explored places all over Second Life. We have grown to be more in many ways.

Of course, I give him a hard time every day and what is amazing about him is that he is always calm. He can be silly, very funny and oh yes talk talk talk but when it is serious he is there to listen and comfort me.

A little piece of Happiness is being with you...it is. Happy Anniversary Month...may we have much more together.

My advice as it is in real life, treasure those few true friends...

Writer's Block?

So, sometimes I get just stuck when it comes to writing or creating. I looked that up and somehow came upon "writer's block" You have to understand for me to comprehend this in English I always have to visualize the word. Well thinking of a big block I am sitting on did not explain nor help me.

Some kind of intervention cannot hurt I suppose, but I may have to look for more answers. 

Okay. Okay. I know caffeine isn’t good for you. But sometimes you need something to keep going. Don’t waste your fantastic ideas just because you can’t keep awake.
Make yourself a cup of tea or coffee. Green tea sounds great about now.
Being around my cat always helps me relax and think of new ideas. Maybe my blog should be about cats? What do you think? Okay, maybe not then.
There are many ideas you can find online if you ever get stuck writing or being creative, but do allow yourself to be still for a moment as well.

Happy Flag Day!!!

You should never be afraid to raise your flag and be proud of it. So stand tall and repeat after me:

"I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL."

I don't know of any country that does not honor their flag, so before I get too political I support this flag and this country.

Now going back to the regular program...oh yes I had the honor today to be part of the USO show held at Sacred Ground. Thank you 

US Navy Vet for creating that sim.


I must say the show by "THE OUTSIDERS" was amazing. If you missed it you need to check their dance group out.

I was able to video most of the show and will leave some links where you can watch it here:

USO SHOW SACRED GROUND

I also have the honor to create a website for Sacred Ground and as I get more information, I will update that as well. At the moment the grounds on that sim are being worked on and I have been promised to get a view of it fairly soon.

What is Peace?

“Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.” 
~ Albert Einstein

Everything must be understood at first before you can get the results you want. I truly believe this peace comes from within first. If all people would look for that peace inside of themselves, they would be so much more ready to enforce it in the world around them.
Life is truly an opportunity you get just once. You make the best out of every situation. If there are challenges, then go deal with them. Overcome the sorrows and play the life role you always wanted to play. Life is you. Life is the adventure you dare to live. So do it. Make some peace :)

Sacred Ground

I stumbled upon Sacred Ground, one of the biggest Soldier Memorials in SL, on Memorial Day and was quickly impressed with it. I knew there was something I could do. 



I am a long time supporter of the troops and all veterans in RL. As a former spouse and military liaison for the Family Readiness program, I feel proud to be able to do something in SL to support the veterans.


I will be doing some videos and a website for them, so I am very excited to be helping this way.

Please come and visit this great place soon.
SACRED GROUND

The next event is a USO Show on June 14, 2017 @ 6pm SLT

Space Adventure!!!

It was out of this world because only 2 humans showed up and the rest were from other planets around the grid.
We hope you join us soon at the Basement Club for other adventures. We have DJs Fri, Sat and Sun...join the group to find out the latest.

Thank you to all who joined us in this great party. We also had winners for the best costume, which went to Candi, Charming and Anjelikka, but everybody looked great :)


Me and Greg....I think he was probing me?

Happy Memorial Day!!!

I am not sure why people in the USA say "Happy Memorial Day"? Is it not the day when we remember those who have fallen? I am a big supporter of the troops and I have done my share of somber moments when the one you have a relationship with volunteered for another deployment. I have seen those wives who have lost their loved ones and no words I could say would make it any better.


I have looked up towards the sky and wondered why the man who left and then returned was not the man I knew. You see some may not have fallen completely, some may have seen things that we can never understand and as a result, they have died ( not physically but their soul has).

I have learned to eat meals in solitude because the ones we loved have gone and they have given that ultimate sacrifice. Yet so many are still out there and suffer. Their families suffer. We all suffer from the great loss of men and women who are now gone and those who are partial with us. Let us never forget them!!!


So wave that flag a little higher today and smile and that is a "Happy Memorial Day" :)

Happy REZZ Day Greg!!!


So...we celebrated Greg's Rezz day a day early...he is now 3 years old and that is old in Second Life....lol

But seriously, that means I have known Greg for three years now because he was only 1 week old when I ran into him on that silly boat.


Thank you to those who came and stopped by and listened to my set tonight and celebrating Greg's Rezz day at the same time.

We managed to have a little time together after all the guests left.


Dizzi Popstar makes the audience "like it"

All the way from Munich, Germany the talented musician Dizzi Popstar performed  at the Basement Club today. The audiences really enjoyed his songs.


For those who got to hear him sing it truly was a treat. He is really that talented and that good. I am so lucky to have run into him at the Blake Sea.
Thank you Dizzi, we will talk soon.

Runaround Sue's

Thank you to all those who supported me and Greg at Runaround Sue's. We made our first debut there as DJ and Host for the 9-11 shift...and then every Friday.

Of course, nothing goes exactly smooth. The dilemma was we never took a landmark when we got hired, so I found an old landmark I had that was Runaround Sue's...well that is what I thought, but it turned out to be another Club playing the same style of music. I even messaged the DJ and said "Hello I am checking in " and Greg had already sent out the notice with this landmark. Just then it hit us: This is NOT the place where we suppose to be at.

OMG....well I apologized to the DJ and off we went and he laughed his ass off. We now have the correct landmark and we have the correct information and we made it there.Whew!!!

The Girl Code



Really? Whoever thought of the Girl Code is a total moron. I think it was the mega bitch of all who created it.At least that is what I think. I saw a few that made some sense but the rest of those rules are not and nope I am not gonna follow them. Bad enough there are Moron guys and now you want me to listen to a mega bitch. Do these rules even apply in Second Life? 

I suppose we have to establish the rules first so we can judge them for ourselves. Here is what I found and some of these are ridiculous:

3) If you just met a guy and know absolutely nothing about him, but need to refer to him during 'girl talk' you use one example of who he is, something he has, or what he does, and he becomes... that guy.
(Ex. "The Camaro guy", "The Trainer dude", "The Four a.m. in the Taxi Guy") 

Would he not have a name?

5) You are never in any case to date a friends ex or a guy who she was really into.
Exception: If he's one of those guys who every girl likes.
 

You mean never ever? Ya right.

8) No girl is to ever hang out with the boyfriend of a friend without the friend present. If permission to is granted there should be at least 3 other people with you. 
I already know some girls in SL who broke that rule...lol

10) No girl shall wear the same outfit or perfume as a friend is they will knowingly be in the same place. 
But what if it was on sale?

You want to read them up go ahead and see the Official Girl Code Guide

I got to have a drink after all that nonsense...have a great one but do tell me what you think of the girl code in the comments...

You know you're old when...

So how do we know when we are old? Just because we are tired could not mean we are old. I have a 19-year-old in Real Life and she says she is tired. I know for a fact she is not as old as me. Besides I just remember being that age and all of a suddenly I am "?" years old. 

I like the definition in the urban dictionary: Old is when its more expensive to buy the candles, than the cake to put it on.
The dictionary also had a description of the term "Olds" which said it is a Derogatory term for older people (or parents) incapable of operating seemingly simple technology such as Snapchat.




Listen up you younger folks...we have knowledge of technology and why would we need Snapchat or Facebook ( which is a stalker's paradise by the way) when we have Second Life. I am so glad there are fewer young ones here because us "Olds" are badass when it comes to technology and you know you are just trippin' when you realize we are right:)

Perhaps Second Life attracts so many "older" citizens because you can dance the night away without a sweat or you can run a mile and never feel tired. How I ever walk in high heels all over Second Life makes me wonder, but so far my feet have not been sore.

Ok, I better get me some Geritol so I can stay awake in Second Life.
