NEWS:

Big changes coming…  As I move into new ventures starting next week in RL, I find I have to make some adjustments here too. I have found myself spending more and more time on the newsletter and less and less on things I would like to do for myself as I have also found additional interests and skills that I am now wanting to explore.  Additionally, I don’t have a business here to make income so I find myself looking in that direction and as well as performing (Burning Taiko) to keep myself a bit more viable here in SL. Therefore, I have decided to cut the newsletter and blog down to twice a week posting on Monday and Friday only and changing some of the content. You may see new pages appear in the blog as this week progresses  and as I work out how I want things to look and, of course, suggestions are always welcome.

 ** I will keep all the business listings, community listing and events going but need your input – if you haven’t already, please send me a notecard if you are interested in continuing posting with your current LM and any information you want posted. It will be your responsibility to make sure I get updated if you have any changes to your location or have sales, hunts etc. and on a notecard, please, as it is very difficult to just be told something when doing something else and have to make a notecard for it, lol….. On May 31 I will be only posting those places that have indicated a desire to continue posting with The D’ni Voice. Of course you may put a new posting or be added back in at any time by providing a notecard with the information you want included. Additionally, if you have a hunt with your business or sale by all means let me know and I will add it to your listing for the duration of the hunt.

Events that are ongoing will have their own page on the blog and I will update those as needed.  The current Metaversal listings  will also have their own page. Exploration will also stay and I will add to that on an ongoing basis as I get information and Jandai will continue her wonderful Exploring SL series.

Hunts and Freebies section will be discontinued. It has become too much for me to keep track of the multitudes of things out there and we have numerous blogs and groups that provide that information along with some superb huntresses here in the community. Contact Angelfire Teebrook, Tichelle Teebrook or Riana Eiren for your hunting and freebie needs. These fabulous ladies really know their stuff and can point you to the best and fun things out there in that genre.

It has been wonderful serving the Community but it is time for me to take a step down to a lesser role now. I don’t intend to stop posting, I just want to consolidate a bit better what we currently do have and also allow myself some time to develop and play here in SL and some of the other metaverses. Others are welcome to take up any roles they feel will fill a need in the community, after all we are many parts of a whole.

PURGAL ADGE MARKETS – MARKET STALLS FOR RENT
SkydiverAnarta Fall & SkydiverColorado Calloway

Do you make things and don’t know where to sell them? Have you ever wanted somewhere to market your goods on the Mainland? Would you like a market stall and pay no rent? I have purchased some land on the mainland and turned it into a market place.  All you have to do is to donate your 512 land allowance, choose a stall and away you go. Each stall carries a 50 prim allowance. If you want a stall, but do not have the land allowance available, then stalls are being rented for 160L per week for 50 prims.

Please contact SkydiverAnarta Fall or SkydiverColorado Calloway for further information.

CLAIREHAVEN ESTATES
Sandi Glas
From the notecard:

Clairehaven Estates was established in 2008 to create an affordable alternative to land ownership.  From the beginning, Veronicaa Ninetails and Sandi Glas have worked hard to provide a stress free place to live and play and relax, all within a libertine community of “family” who live together in peaceful coexistence.  We currently have five regions, and though they are not themed, each has a character all its own.  Land is available in a variety of sizes, and priced modestly to better help everyone develop the home of their dreams.  Contact us, or visit one of our properties today.  The landmarks below will take you to the tier boards for each region, and you can visit a land simply by clicking on the tier box and receiving the LM to that particular parcel or island.

Haven I & Haven IV tier boards: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Haven%20IV/70/180/401
Haven II tier board: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Haven%20II/1/221/601
