Voracious Greedy !

Well not really, but we were hungry for a win at Greedy with friends.

The winning is probably not that important, although I must admit winning once makes you voracious for Greedy.

If you are looking for a cool place to play Greedy that is a little different, because you know you cannot always eat the same stuff, then stop by at the Retreat and play here. Just walk through the gates past the pink car and you will see the tables. Enjoy!!! 
You can also join us and play with us. Just IM me Anjelikka)

After the game, we relax :)

P.S. You can also play Greedy on the water at the Lakehouse.

Imagine the possibilites

I often ask myself what if we imagine the possibilities if we start of Mondays with dancing. Rather than getting ready for work, let us just dance. (At least for a little bit) 

Imagination is real :)

What is great about Second Life is that you can actually do this, but hey why wait for Second Life when Real Life is not an imagination of your mind, but something that is real.

I think I would like that very much and no it does not involve the acrobatic type of movements (lol, not at my age) but just some swaying to the music. I am doing this right now. Well, somewhat but with my cat.

Then there is the saying: Everything you imagine is real by Picasso. So, in other words, that would make Second Life real and when we dance we are really dancing. 

That also means we are real. I think people who are in Second Life sometimes forget that they are real but represented in their avatar. Of course, we used our imagination to create that avatar, but don't we do this already in real life too. We get dressed in the clothes we bought and have the hairstyle we want because we imagined it and it became real or we made it a reality.

So here it on Mondays because imagine the possibilities.

Happy Easter!!!

There is a lot of confusion regarding what Easter Sunday is all about. For some, Easter Sunday is about the Easter Bunny, colorfully decorated Easter eggs, and Easter egg hunts.

It is commonly thought that the word Easter comes from a pagan figure called Eastre (or Eostre) who was celebrated as the goddess of spring by the Saxons of Northern Europe. The only problem with this theory is that it has no basis in history. The existence of a goddess named Eastre or a spring festival in her honor is based on pure conjecture. The same is true of the origin of the Easter bunny and Easter eggs—no one knows for sure how these things became a part of Easter observances. The most we can say is that the word Easter is probably related to the word east (ost in German) and that the Saxons had a month they called Eosturmononath.

at The Willows :)

The legend of the Easter bunny bringing eggs appears to have been brought to the United States by settlers from Germany. The German tradition of the Easter bunny (or Oschter Haws) migrated to America in the 1700s, accompanying German immigrants, many of whom settled in Pennsylvania. Over the past 200 years, the Easter bunny has become the most commercially recognized symbol of Easter in the United States. Other countries use other animals as the symbol of Easter, such as the cuckoo (in Switzerland).

In legend, the Easter bunny also called the Easter hare and the spring bunny, brings baskets filled with colored eggs, candy, and sometimes toys to the homes of children on the night before Easter, in much the same way as Santa Claus is said to deliver presents on Christmas Eve. The Easter Bunny will either put the baskets in a designated place or hide them somewhere in the house or garden for the children to find when they wake up in the morning, giving rise to the tradition of the Easter egg hunt. Obviously, none of this comes from the Bible.

Easter Sunday at the Basement Club!!!

We wish you a very HAPPY EASTER, no matter how you celebrate it :)

Once again, congratulations to Ledd & Lexa for picking the Chapel at the Retreat and the Basement for your wedding. We wish you lots of love and happiness.

Planetarium Dome

"Ready to feel the cosmic connection? Dance, cuddle, relax and orbit in an ethereal environment. Ride the rocket and meet the aliens. Unveil the future of human race."

Planetarium Dome is most definitely a nice place to explore and hang out at.
Beam me up!

I loved floating around in space. This was a lot of fun and I recommend the place. Lots of friendly people here as well.

And the winner is.... me! Really?

People who know me in real life know that I love photography. I quickly learned about photography in Second Life and fell in love with it. Like the real life adventures I take to find the perfect picture, I do this in Second Life as well. I am not that fond of too much photoshopping because it takes away from the real beauty of what you saw. I usually just use filter and crop.

I never really entered a Photo Contest before, but this time I thought why not try it. Besides, it gave me the opportunity to take some really nice pictures.

So, one night in the wee hours before I went to bed I went to Epiphainein's sim and did it. I took pictures as I explored.

The sim is really beautiful and as you land, there are many props and poses, but my advice is to go to the outside and explore and see the nature all around. (right after this coffee)

And here it is my entry:
I won first place...yeah. Please do go and see all the other winners, there is so much talent here, it is amazing.

Thank you so much for the honor of First Place in this contest. I am thrilled and honored :)
