BUILDERS BREWERY BEGINNING BUILDING CLASS – CLASS 3 OF 5
DeAnn Dufaux
Monday, 6:00 PM SL, Dockside
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Builders%20Brewery/23/193/23

Class 3 of 5
There are five classes in this series designed to give the new builder a thorough knowledge of the build menu, its functions, and how to use them to the best advantage.  In this class, we’re going to finish the object tab – sculpties and then will cover use of the grid options and the rulers  —  two tools that are available to you that will not only help you to make your builds more precise but will also help make them a bit easier to put together.

JAX STREETER – FINAL SHOWS
DeAnn Dufaux
Jax Streeter has come back to SL for one more week of shows. He does not have plans to continue performing in SL.  When the last concert comes to an end on March 30, that will be it. Jax will be performing concert and acoustic shows. Acoustic shows will feature only Jax.  The concerts will have the full band with both Tavish and DeAnn on stage along with all the dramatic effects!! Let’s get out and show our support for Jax and the band to show them how much we have appreciated the entertainment they have offered us.

SECOND LIFE EXPLORER

JOURNEY TO INNSMOUTH – PART 1
Jandai Writer
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Innsmouth/29/221/25

The rain was the first thing I noticed as I disembarked from the little boat which had brought me here.  The man had given me a single strange look before dumping my suitcase unceremoniously on the ground, jumping back into his dinghy and rowing back to the liner which had stopped to let me off.

I barely noticed the man leave as I rumaged around to see if I had something to give my head relief from the rain pelting down.  The only thought I had, was how strange it was that the liner had stopped to take me to this shore, when I had been sure the place I was visiting was on its list of port-of-calls.

I saw there was an old house just in front of where I arrived, so I circled the outside looking for a way in.  The windows were broken, and the house almost seemed to be tilted on one side.  Obviously this house had seen better days, but in my desperation to get out of the rain, I could only hope it had a solid and non-leaking roof.

Try as I might, I couldn’t find a way in, so I huddled under the fallen porch roof in an attempt to keep dry.  Leaning against the closed up house, surveyed my surroundings.

This is NOT what was in the travel brochure…

Dead trees…
barren earth…
a house to the right which looked partly submerged in water…
and what is it with this rain???

I checked to see if my polaroid camera was waterproof…it seems to be, so I have started to take some pictures.

There were some strange looking coloured lights over to the left, which seemed to be unusal in this barren landscape.  As I began to make my way towards those lights, I came across a sign, it read:

“Greetings from beautiful, historic
INNSMOUTH, Mass.”

What?  Innsmouth?  That isn’t where I was supposed to be dropped off!  I couldn’t believe it…I had been dumped in the WRONG place!

TWO LARGE PLOTS ON WINTERFELL REVERIE
Dot Macchi
Available late March/early April
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Winterfell%20Reverie/151/54/25
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Winterfell%20Reverie/151/155/23

If you’ve been following the Developments in Devokan thread on MOUL or the blog at http://blog.devokan.net you will have seen that the Devokan team is currently in transition to a new set of regions on the OSgrid.

As a result, two large plots of land, each 6144 m^2 with a prim allowance of 1406 prims, on the beautifully themed Winterfell Reverie island will become available in late March/early April.

Winterfell Reverie is part of the Winterfell group of eleven fantasy medieval sims and three fantasy Tudor/Elizabethan/Victorian sims. To quote the covenant: ‘Winterfell is a twilight fantasy region designed and inspired by stories, dreams and creative interpretations of reality.’ More details about Winterfell (including the covenant) are on its ning site at http://winterfell.ning.com .

Winterfell is to the north of Caledon, so it makes an ideal base for exploration by the extensive waterways (both plots have direct access to river or sea) or by air. Indeed, a ferry system is currently under development to serve the Winterfell community and even reach Caledon Cape Wrath.

If desired, existing buildings could be left on the land (e.g. Rustica Seaside Cottage and Skye Castles Gothic Keep) for people to furnish as they wish. They are lovely buildings, and work well with the island’s architectural theme.

The rent/tier is 3000 L$ per week, payable to a tier box in the Winterfell Estate Office. The estate owner is the helpful and obliging Miss Serra Anansi.

If you are interested or would like more details, please contact Dot Macchi before 24 March. Thanks!

====
PS It’s such a lovely area that I shall be staying here, but in a smaller corner plot. Dot.

In Memoriam T.E.B.
(Turquoise-Eyed Bunneh)
after Tennyson poem adapted by Shimere Felisimo – Uru Sardines group

O somewhere, meek, unconscious bun,
    That goeth ranging turquoise-eyed;
    I, struck by love that did surprise,
Spent 14,000 lindens on!

I sought to pick my bunneh up;
    And animated cuddle him;
    The cursor it doth busy spin
And borketh inventory up;

Expecting still his advent home;
    In panic called the concierge
    Wrote tickets of heartbroke dirge
“Perhaps to-morrow will he come.’

Ye know no more of where he went
    At that last hour than Linden Labs;
    Who said of all I had to tell,
“By issues are our servers bent”;

One writes, that ‘Other buns remain,’
    That ‘Loss is common to the grid’–
    And common inventory hid,
And ghosted avies yet remain.

That loss is common would not make
    My own less bitter, rather more:
    Too common! Never morning wore
To evening, but some script did break.

O what is left then to be done?
    To bring my rabbit home to port?
    To im Ozimals support,
And beg them for a second bun.
