PRAYERS AND GOOD THOUGHTS NEEDED
Isabett Queler – from notecard sent In-World SL

Shorah    “peace”

There are some of you who know me, I am Isabeth in the URU community and also in Second life, Active World and was in THERE.com. 

For the most part I am a private person.  I know how large and strong our community has been and continues to be.  We did not go quietly into the night, we fought and we fight for those who are in need, whatever that need may be.   I need your help, your energy, your prayers.  On March 31, at 10:27 am my grandson was born three weeks premature.  His name is Michael Deerin and he is in trouble.   He is being flown to Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee, WI. 

I am asking that you keep him and our family in your thoughts and prayers this Easter weekend. 

No, I am begging.   I lost my first born when he was only one month.. to this day the pain still haunts me.   Please, Please.

CAVERN EVENTS:

OHBOT IN GUILD OF GREETERS HOOD
DMom2K Darwin
OHBot’s site
http://orangehairedboy.net/
Poll and discussion
Very heated discussion – thread got locked
Nalates’ post where OHBot comes up in discussion
Discussion continues on new thread

I had the privilege of meeting OHBot and his maker OHB (Orange Haired Boy) in the Guild of Greeters Hood. While there is a lot of controversy over the existance of a bot in MOULa, we of SL recognize bots such as OHBot as something we have encountered before and actually the norm here in SL and we are certainly not afraid of something like this. There is much dialogue on the forums both by those who think this is a brilliant step forward and by others who seem to think staying only on a certain narrow track is the only way to go. My personal opinion is that he is brilliant and shows what can be done and that others who talk a lot need to get off their duffs and put their efforts to show what they can do now as well instead of showing how well they can talk….. Here are the pictures of OHB and OHBot:

HUNT FOR A HOPE – A RELAY FOR LIFE EVENT
Riana Eiren
April 1 to April 7
From the notecard:

** Hunt For a Hope –  April 1st – April 7th **

Welcome to the Hunt for a Hope, brought to you by the Relay Raiders Team.  We are very delighted about this hunt project that will help raise money to find a cure for cancer and to provide a greater awareness of RFL.  We appreciate all your help and donations for this hunt.  

Many designers have hidden eggs around their main stores or sims that are filled with beautiful gifts. Below is a list of hunt location. Most eggs are $10L and 100% percent of the purchases go to Relay for Life.  For those of you who would like to donate more, a few designer will be placing “Golden Eggs” out with spectacular items at great prices.

Our hope is for you to enjoy your time hunting for the eggs, as well as helping the world find a cure for cancer. 
Thank-you and happy hunting!

SPRING CLEANING SERIES
Riana Eiren
We know we eventually have to do it….Riana has some great tips on how to do it.

Here are more tips for your Spring Cleaning:

*Protip* embed “lists” of notes in another notecard to save them and inventory space. (This is really great for archiving newsletters and store textures of new releases!)
—————————————————————————–
*protip* Add more to your profile: organize by putting information together–if you’ve added some of your group places or stores that you belong to the groups of to your picks, you can write down things about your activities / relationships under or instead of the store descriptions, and add urls of related websites or blogs. Make your profile work harder!
—————————————————————————–
*Protip* Box up extra stuff you’re not using but want to keep–if you want to, make a list of what you put in the box. HUGE inventory saver! (Remember all those extra exotic colored hairs and skins you never wear but like to keep? or maybe weapons and vehicles?)
—————————————————————————–
*Protip* To box stuff, simply rezz a regular prim (it can be any shape, textured or untextured–doesn’t matter). Most people prefer a plain box shape or a sphere. While you have the prim in edit mode, go to the “content” tab on the far right of the menu. Leaving that menu open, click on each item you want to box and drag it into the menu, waiting a few seconds until the menu registers the transfer. “No copy” items will  disappear from your inventory and be in the box, but copy items will remain in your inventory unless/until you delete them. You may wish to set the permissions on the box as well, if you desire to give the items away–but make sure the perms on the contents match the perms on the prim if you’re doing that–you can’t put no trans items into a trans box and give it away.
