"Lightning Bolt is the name selected by Valarie Muffin Meow (Zalindah) for her latest region creation. It’s an interesting name that appears to be less connected with the region’s presentation than with the fact that it is likely only to be around for a limited period of time, as the About Land description notes:" Read more on the blog.

"There is this really great new sim called Cravone City. Its an urban New York style sim. Being a New Yorker myself, I am always drawn to that urban scene: the hustle, the bustle, the crossing the street and not getting hit by a taxi - you know normal city stuff. So when i visited it I had this idea. I called an old friend of mine to do a field trip with me - Strawberry Linden." Read more on Flickr.

So, let's go!" Read more on the blog.
"Taking your significant other to New York or the Maldives for Valentine’s Day would most likely cost you thousands of dollars or euros. And thanks to the pandemic it’s also not even an option for most of us.
Not so in Second Life, which has a great selection of hotels and resorts complete with five star service, luxury suites, amazing swimming pools, high end restaurants and pristine beaches. And all that for less than the price of latte and sandwich from your local coffee shop,
As a result, here’s my pick for Valentine’s Day hotels. These will of course also work for any other romantic break you might have planned throughout the year."
