    Here in most of the United States, we’ve entered that time of year where it gets dark very early. It will literally feel like 10 pm at night when it’s barely 6 or 7 pm. The temperatures dip in the evenings, but there is still enough of the Autumn sunshine to keep us from realizing how fast November is moving by! In stores, they’ve already begun to deck the halls, and there’s the distinct sound of jingles and holiday tunes in the air. The new holiday cups at coffee shops all already out, and there’s no denying that … winter is coming. We’re all set to go walking in some Winter wonderlands in our next episode of Lab Gab with Xiola & Strawberry. What’s not to love about sweater weather, a cozy scarf, and the calming crackling of a toasty fire? Winter is a time of year for family, friends, holidays, and cheer - and we’re ready to bring some of that cheer to Lab Gab. We’ll be going live at 3 pm (PT/SLT) this Wednesday, November 20th. Tune in to our Official YouTube Channel (or check us out on our new Mixer channel or Facebook Live! Via our Official Facebook page) to watch on Wednesday, November 20th at 3 pm PT/SLT.

    Woah, there’s been a whirlwind of winter activities in Second Life. From the amazing amount of destinations to the upcoming Winter Holiday Shop & Hop (opening December 13th) - we’re smack in the middle of the holiday hype train. Snow, a warm fire, hot cocoa - it’s all part of the season in the Northern hemisphere - though it feels like we just celebrated Halloween. Luckily, we can tuck our toes into socks and get into the holiday spirit without the biting cold nipping at our noses. This week’s destination video highlights one such spot - where you can go and dash through the snow, grab some holiday decor for your Second LIfe, or enjoy the sparkling lights. It’s festive and merry, and sure to leave you feeling fortified with cheer. Which you’re gonna need if you’ve got some holiday shopping to do. Christmas Lane A magical place where you will feel the real Christmas spirit wherever you go. Full of attractions and a big mall with Christmas decor for all your holiday needs. Visit Santa's village and see the elves at the North Pole Cafe. Go skating, take photos, shop, and more. Come check out this very attractive and interactive place!

    "Giving credit where credit is due is a big thing for me. When I’m blogging I try hard to credit everything that appears in a photo, no matter how big or small. Sometimes I use older items and I it’s hard to find if the item is still for sale anywhere. Bloggers rely on the information in the creator’s profile a lot but I’ve often been surprised by how many creators do not keep that information up to date.

    High on a snow-covered mountain From her throne she looks down at the clowns Who think youth can be found in a fountain High on the wings of her rhythms She will smile at the guys who come on with their eyes But she'll never dance with them And in smoke-filled rooms of electric sound A legend is built around The Snow Queen ~ Carole King <Click here for more on the Sugarcoated Pixels blog>

    " Y’all. I had this really cool picture idea all planned out. If you remember, I set up this decor scene specifically for that idea. Well, it failed. Epic failure. I mean… wow. I got all excited to work on the photo and then—disaster. When I say disaster, it’s legit. So then I spent the last 3 nights stewing over how to rectify the situation.

    "I released ECLIPSE Magazine November 2019 today. It’s three days later than I would have liked, but it’s earlier than last month, so I imagine that would be considered progress. Even if only mildly. I found it difficult to layout because in my headspace I think about how last year Autumn was on the cover. There are times when I’m okay, and I can laugh and joke, but there are so many things around me that trigger memories." Credits and more on the Tapas and Clothes blog.

    As we teased at the end of August, an all new grid-wide gaming experience has been in the works here at the Lab, and today we’re excited to announce that it’s opening! Tyrah and the Curse of the Magical Glytches is here for you to explore - read on for the details. MAGELLAN IS DEAD!!! Dr Talpa has not been seen since his robot army was defeated and Tyrah escaped before he could turn her into a cyborg. The moles are in shock and mourning Magellan's passing. Who will protect the grid now that he is gone?? No one is sure… Mischievous, magical creatures called Glytches are creating havoc upon the grid! Where did the Glytches come from? What does Tyrah have to do with it? Curse?! Learn all in this special background video! It’s up to you, the Residents, to save the grid from these adorably rascally creatures. As you catch them, you get to keep them! Sometimes when you catch them, you are also given gems which you can use to upgrade your weapons, play a prize lottery, and even enter special bonus regions chock-full of more Glytches and gems. To get started, go to the Portal Park and find the new portal to Tyrah and the Curse of the Magical Glytches. Walk through that portal, watch the background story and tutorial videos if you haven’t already, pick up your starter kit from The Apothecary, and start hunting! The Glytches are all over the grid, in places like PaleoQuest, Linden Realms, Horizons, various InfoHubs and other locations. They’re even on parcels owned by Residents! Don’t worry, they won’t be on your own personal parcel unless you want them there. There’s information about how to apply to host Glytches on your parcels in the Official TCMG Wiki page. Getting Your Glych Collection Started Remember that mysterious Egg you picked up during Second Life’s 14th birthday celebrations? Bring it with you! It’s finally ready to hatch! To hatch your egg, pick it up (wear it, just don’t sit on it, because...ew!) and take it to Hartyshire. Find the hatchery located inside the Gift Shop, and click on the hatchery. You must be wearing your egg in order to hatch it. Your Mission ... Now that the threat of the Glytches is real, will you rise up as a hero and capture as many as you can? Can Tyrah count on your help? Head over to Portal Park and start your Glytch-collecting adventure now!
