    Inspired by a friend who sent me some lovely locations to do photoshoots, I decided to explore and take a self portrait...

    My home for the holidays. I like the multi-color lights. I used a combination of the Linden Lights and the lights from "Real Lights." I also used the Linden snow caps for the top of the house and some garlands from Hive. I tried not to overdo it, but I just love seeing all the colors and lights. I used the windlight "Blizzard" which is a pretty cool look for the winter.

    Finally got my hands on a house boat last night, so did my first round of decorating this evening. Still needs a lot of fine tuning, and forgot my plants! But its a start

    Warning: this post is not intended to be taken seriously!!! Even after 6 years on this account; I can still stuff up. Today's was instead removing a top, putting new top on instead of hitting remove from current outfit; I hit add so here's Seren currently wearing 2000 plus tops (according to Tops main folder with various sub folders of different style tops) so how about that for a trend?

    Today was an excellent day to get outside and see what's in store for Bellisseria in the near future. I only had time for a short outing, but I did want to see what's going on at the American Cancer Society's Christmas Expo, especially the preview of the newest Linden Homes. It's tantalizing. When I got to the event, therefore, I went straight north through the American Cancer Society region and over the bridge to Linden Reveal. There's a lovely park on the other side, full of hydrangeas and roses. I don't know how they do it at this time of year, but the flowers are beautiful. All of the vegetation is, in fact. There are tall, majestic willows and more shrubbery than I have seen in many parts of Bellisseria. This preview area also has an elegant tiered fountain and a small pond that has a family of mallards swimming around. I do hope that the new parts of Bellisseria have parks like this, and ducks. I like ducks. Sadly, I had less time than I planned and couldn't manage to take more than a couple of photos, so I hope these are enough to tease you into going to see for yourself. There are four styles of homes here, ranging in size from the one-story bungalow behind me here to three large two-story homes. One of those, the Verne ( apparently named after the novelist Jules Verne ), is the red house that you can see behind the maples on the left side of this photo. All of them are quite open and airy, with high ceilings and well-crafted woodwork. The rooms are going to be fun to decorate -- large and with plenty of wall space for paintings and other artwork. They should be easy to modify with personal extras. I suspect that there will be decor options available in the content pack with these homes as well, although we can't see those during this preview event. As you see in this photo, taken in the front doorway of the Hardy (another stately home) each house also has a large wrap-around porch that would be a fine place to put wicker furniture and perhaps a two-seat swing. The entry of all houses is framed by beveled glass sidelights, and the outside doors have polished brass hardware. Details like that make all the difference, in my opinion. I hate to leave you with just a quick peek at these homes, so I do hope you get an opportunity to visit the event yourself -- maybe buy some presents for friends and family from one of 170 merchants and participate in the auction for a Premium membership and one of these lovely homes. Oh, and buy an Ebbe Linden bear (very cute). As soon as they open the new regions in Bellisseria, I promise to take longer and do a travelogue through Victorian neighborhoods. I'm really an outdoor person, as you maybe have deduced from my other wanderings.

    A couple of points here... First: As someone who spends time hanging out on Social Island and greeting the newest of newbies, I can report that the kinds of people who are entering SL are no different than the kinds of people we saw back in late 2007. (I can't report on the situation earlier than that, I wasn't there!) We still get: The gamers. "What's the point of this game?" The instant hookup crowd. "A/S/L?" Although nobody seems to actually use that rude abbreviation, it's true. The Homework Assignment. "My teacher sent us all here. How can I find my class?" (These are rarer these days) The Get Rich in SL crowd. "How do I make money on here?" These too are much less common than they were in 2007. The Sense of Wonder people. These are the rare newcomers who are fascinated by everything, bright-eyed and eager to learn. They are the rare people who "get" SL almost at once, and will probably be around to write the history of SL's next ten years. As always, the first two categories make up the majority of the newcomers. It's interesting that despite drawing from the same kinds of people initially, we can make distinctions based on what people experience, and become, afterwards. Second: At the risk of getting into an argument with Love, I have to take issue with his view that "Boomers" are defined as people who are unable to accept change. The younger generation has always had this view of their elders; that they are old fuddy-duddies who are stuck somewhere back in the last century. I am myself a member of the Baby Boomer generation...and I often was exasperated by my parents, who seemed unable to understand, let alone embrace, things that came along later in their lives, like cell phones and personal computers. But consider this: The Boomers have experienced (and in many cases, caused to happen) more change in the last half of the 20th century and the first decades of the 21st than in any comparable period of human history. The rate of change has been accelerating. My father's life spanned the time between when men first flew and the time men landed on the moon, which is an incredible amount of change. My own life saw us go from room-sized computers that required specialists to operate them to computers many times as powerful that were pocket-sized and could talk to you. We went from two channels of black and white TV to TVs that spanned the wall of your room and could access hundreds of channels and decades of content on demand (and STILL nothing worth watching!) We went from identifying the DNA molecule to modifying it. From gas station roadmaps that you could never get folded back together to talking GPS systems. I have been a part of, and eagerly embraced most of, the changes throughout my lifetime. I, and the generation I'm a part of, has now grown old(er). Like all generations before us, we have (we hope!) developed some maturity and wisdom and the perspective of our years. It is galling beyond belief to have some pimply-faced teenager mock us with a sneering "OK Boomer" simply because we disagree on some point or other. The younger generation always knows it all...until they become the older generation, and find out that they didn't.

    I just went with my real name, so I'll just share that story instead. My parents were for some reason certain that I should be a girl, so they were somewhat unprepared in naming me and just went with a name that, at the time, was quite fashionable. So fashionable, that in high school, there were four of us with the same name in my class alone. At that point I felt that I had gotten quite detached from it, as everyone just referred to me by my surname instead. Meanwhile, my grandfather had been in open rebellion throughout my life. My grandmother had to physically hold him down when I was baptised, as he plotted to interrupt the ceremony and declare that 'This child shall be known as Orwar!'. Even when that never happened, he never called my by any other name. So, when I came of age, I formally had my name changed, and also correcting my parent's failure to honour our naming traditions, putting my name length to <my grandfather's name> <my spoken name (Orwar)> <the name my parents gave me as a middle name> <surname>.

    I had just typed a long response but I don't think you are looking for reason. Log in to your SL dashboard, contact LL and request a refund and may joy be with you

    This reminds me of the early days of my marriage. On Friday nights, we'd set aside time for some fun. If I got home before he did, I'd sometimes leave a "boudoir trail" from the laundry (where we entered the house from the garage) to our bedroom upstairs. I was very deliberate in the construction of that trail, which might look like... Two mismatched shoes in the laundry and a third in the kitchen. A pair of pantyhose draped over a kitchen chair, along with a blouse and a taupe bra on the island. A red bra on the newel post, and a short skirt (that I'd never wear in public, but he liked a lot) at the bottom of the stairs. A single nylon stocking on the handrail, halfway up the stairs, and a pair of his briefs. A pair of red panties at the top of the stairs and a black bra on the floor at the bottom of the bedroom door. He'd open the door to find me lounging on the bed in bib overalls and snoopy slippers. Under that would be something entirely different. I am nothing if not a tease.

    I’ve often wondered what the story or inspiration was behind your Avatar names... ??? So... ??? I’ll go first 😬 Saravendi is a manufactured, made-up word (no surprise there). Years ago, my interior design group was designing a Spa retreat and pitched the client the name Saravendi Spa. It was to be a traditional Spa with Yoga, a retail store etc. They went with another option, but I always loved the name and Sara was alway my favorite name, so when I got the chance to name myself when enrolling for SL (just Sara was obviously taken) Saravendi became it!! I often wonder if ppl think I’m Indian in rl because of the Sanskrit ending “vendi”... nope, just a California girl who loves Yoga 🧘‍♀️ (does that count?) Namaste ~ Sara

    I love the new landscaping of these Victorian themed homes on the Linden Reveal region. The weeping willows are gorgeous as are the many large Hydrangea flowers dotted about. The Shelley is probably my favorite in style. Here's a little bit more information detail on the 4 house styles while peeking around the region. The Verne is a 241 LI 2 story home, with 2 upstairs rooms and a large landing on the second floor. 3 large rooms downstairs and a nice 3/4 wrap around porch. 1 upstairs and downstairs interesting shaped rooms. The Hardy is a 241 LI 2 story home, with 3 rooms upstairs and a large landing on the second floor, 3 large rooms downstairs and a front and back porch. Nice back hall downstairs, and bay window in the front. The Shelley is a 250 LI 2 story home, with 2 rooms upstairs and a large landing on the second floor, 3 large rooms downstairs and a 1/2 back, full side, 1/2 front porch. 4 interesting shaped rooms up and downstairs. The Doyle is a 224 single story home, with 4 rooms, a large side hallway, nice partial wrapped front porch and small back porch.

    I think these will be really popular. Good job if they are doing one massive relase, I think they'll be all snapped up so fast! I'm not taking one though...quite happy with my houseboat, Victorian style not really my thing, but I think they have been beautifully done with the landscaping and all.

    Go into your "About Land" settings to the "Options" tab and uncheck "Avatars on other parcels can see and chat with avatars on this parcel" You can also add the username to the Banned list under the same tab Don't forget to block them through thier profile to stop all further contact with them along with the above steps.

    I know the month of December can be hard for a lot of people, myself included, and thought maybe we could have a tiny little spot right here where we could check in and maybe be empathetic to each other and not try to force good cheer down each other's throats. It's okay to not be okay. So... how're you feeling today?

    Lemsip tastes horrid, they put tons of lemin in it to mask the aspirin/paracetamol. My preferred cold remedy is whisky, honey and hot water. Doesnt' cure the cold but it makes me feel better

    I used to enjoy watching History channel, until they stopped airing shows about history. During one show, they paid attention to the Thervingian Gothic ruler Fritigern. I liked the name and it stuck with me. When I created my account here, one of the last names that I could choose from was Gothly, so the choice to name myself Fritigern was quickly made, and counted on the fact that the name is not very well known outside of a circle of history buffs 🙂 I was also very much into Gothic (subculture and music) at the time, so there was that. So far, nobody yet has said "but hey, isn't Fritigern a MALE name?"

    @Pussycat Catnap, please don not let someone with such a sad spirit get to you. Some people have trash on their souls and they need to throw it to the world, so other people have the same garbage on them. Those Linden Victorian homes are made with love, to begin with. When I posted it about my ideas on having Mediterranean style houses, someone came to me saying that style was part of a culture that invaded and destroyed the former Southamerican civilization... And I was just showing pictures of homes.... Plus, that person really needs to read and investigage a bit more on History. Even me, on the other side of the Ocean, can tell the difference.Please, we really need more reading in this modern era...

    I don't even remember what I did when I first joined aside from maybe hang out in pubbie hubs and camping linden trees for newbies, haha. I don't have any kids of my own right now, but I will say that my mom introduced me to MMOs when I was about 12 years old and did it in such a way that she was able to teach me how to be safe there and what to avoid. Granted, your typical MMO is a lot more fenced in in terms of content, and SL can really be a wildcard. So, if I had kids, I think I'd try to explain what I was doing/playing, but obviously would follow the guidelines for age restrictions - if you can't play til you're 16, then you can't play til you're 16. At the end of the day SL isn't really a game - it contains games, but it's more of visual platform than anything else. There's so much to do and see still even if a lot of the old hangouts are ghost towns. TL,DR: If my future kids are old enough to have an account by LL's terms, then sure. Just be careful and don't give out your personal information, and be aware that people can and will lie online about who they are. Lewis - your experience is super sweet and wholesome and I love that it worked out for you and your daughter that way.

    What is stopping you from writing such an article? When I read the article in question, I did not see it as an opinionated piece against Second Life as it is now. Rather, I saw it as a retrospect from a historical perspective... what Second Life is now and how it either met or fell short of the much-hyped future that was promised at the beginning. I suppose if one believed the original hype to be the "good stuff" and the current Second Life is no where near that, then perhaps the article can be viewed as a negative slam against the service. But, if one believed the original hype was well overblown gibberish, then the article may be concluded to be negative on the original vision as Second Life currently has evolved in a natural way. But at no time did I feel the article was negative about the current Second Life.

    Well THAT's going to keep me awake tonight. @Patch Linden, what say you? Are you the Master of a Neko Dungeon disguised as a "test region" and have you dragged MY @Quartz Mole into your scheme?! I'm not sayin' that's a bad thing...
