NORTH

"Inspired by the raw and serene Scandinavian and Scottish northern landscapes, nature, ocean, and decrepit old buildings come together to make up the outside part of North. The interior spaces are intentionally left more playful and cluttered in order to create a contrast."

Dress warmly when you come here because Winter has covered the land with snow.

It is a fun place to walk around in and meet some friends, even if they are the forest kind.


Enjoy this video about the sim North.

The Retreat...the new features.

There are some new features here at the Retreat and if you have not stopped by yet, you must come and enjoy this pearl. 

The Retreat started in 2012 with a parcel that was 2048sqm. It has grown to almost half a sim now.

Located on Route 12, it is a calm and relaxing place with lush gardens, picture opportunities, chapel, dance club, gallery, gacha store and rentals. Most important it is open to the public.
Our newest section is the Retreat Mountain and the Rental we have on the west side of Route 12.

This is the new rental on the west side. A fully furnished and landscaped home. Only L$250 per week plus you get 100 prims to add your own things. The seasons here change Dec-Feb is Winter, Mar-May is Spring, June-Aug is Summer, and Sep-Nov is Fall. You will love it because there is no other place where you can live this cheap with such beauty. Sure you can find 60L$ boxes with 20 prims, but why not live in style?
Stop by today and take a look at this beauty :) It will not last very long.

We create our fate every day we live.

Treat me like a queen and I'll treat you like my king. Sometimes you break your heart in the right way if you know what I mean.

I can't remember when it has been boring for us here in Second Life. Oh yes, we have been tired, very tired but that is because real life makes you run around without breaks. Coming here and relaxing with each other is a nice break.

As Second Life gets more realistic we enjoy it more and love to escape here and spend time together. This is not lost time, this is the time we use to create memories. I love reminiscing about places we have seen and people we talked to. I don't want to recover from this addiction at all.

Time to get Funky...

It was Disco and Funk time at the Basement Club and the music was nothing but spectacular. DJ Likka, Dandy and DrakiAzul performed a thrilling show with music and dance.
Go Dandy, go! Who knew that he was such an excellent dancer? People got an extra treat because he did the dance in his tiny skivvies. Come back next week for another episode. Every Sunday night 6-8 PM SLT here at the Basement Club! 

Want to be a dancer, host or DJ? Come and see us and apply there. We love to have you :)
Draki makes the perfect bartender. He is also a good listener while you drink your spirits.

"A theory that you can't explain to a bartender is probably no damn good."
A quiet moment for us :)

Dia de los Muertos

Día de los Muertos, also known as the Day of the Dead, is a holiday when people remember those who have died. Largely celebrated in Mexico, it dates back to pre-Hispanic civilizations from 2,500 to 3,000 years ago.
We are just her resting our bones.

I think what frightened Greg more than anything was that my dress looked like the same pattern from the shower curtain.


Just a thin veil, between this world
And that world of beauty and love,
Just a thin veil that hides the view
Of our Spirit loved ones above!


We wish you a very joyful Day of the Dead and may you always remember those who have passed. 

To live in hearts we leave behind
Is not to die.
~Thomas Campbell, "Hallowed Ground"

Happy Halloween!!!


....When you sleep
I will creep
Into your thoughts
Like a bad debt
That you can't pay
Take the easy way
And give in
Yeah, and let me in....(Morrissey)

Another great time at the Basement's second costume party. If you missed this one we have other great adventures planned every Saturday and Sunday from 6-8 PM SLT. Make sure you stop by. We did have winners for the contest and the Travis Train Game :)

We wish you a Happy, Happy Halloween. The Hunt at the Retreat is still open until October 31, 2017. Hurry and get your goodies....

Draki Azul

Draki Azul is the Retreat Pet. We adopted him last Halloween and we see him often roam the Retreat. 

Of course, we do not mind, he has a very kind nature and is welcome at any time :)
the picture was taken by DrakiAzul

Here is some great news, recently Draki was at the Retreat again and took a nice video of his Halloween tour. Make sure you check it out and then stop by the Retreat yourself.

Pumpkin Pumpkin...who was this guy?

One day I found two pumpkin seeds.

I planted one and pulled the weeds.
It sprouted roots and a big, long vine.
A pumpkin grew; I called it mine.
The pumpkin was quite round and fat.
(I really am quite proud of that.)
But there is something I'll admit
That has me worried just a bit.
I ate the other seed, you see.
Now, will it grow inside of me?

(I'm so relieved since I have found
That pumpkins only grow in the ground!)

I danced with the pumpkin King all night. He is a good dancer actually and his light inside never went out.
He serenaded me with some music from the "Ballad of the pumpkin seed". Did he just wink at me? Or was that a flicker of the candle-light?
And then all of a sudden, he tried to steal a kiss from me. His bony fingers on my back. Oh wait can you scratch me back there? Yes, that feels good.
Inside his head, I like to see...oh, nothing...figures.
But I do am very fond of him and I will keep him around for another year :)

“Lil’ Red Riding Hood”

Most of know the story of little red riding hood and how she went to her granny's house through the woods and a encountered the big bad wolf.
Well, there are many versions of this story and the most famous is most likely the one told by the brothers Grimm.

The tale can be told in terms of Little Red Riding Hood’s sexual attractiveness. The song “How Could Red Riding Hood (Have Been So Very Good)?” by A.P. Randolph in 1925 was the first song known to be banned from radio because of its sexual suggestiveness.
The 1966 hit song “Lil’ Red Riding Hood” by Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs takes Wolf’s point of view, implying that he wants love rather than blood.
I do like the part in the song that the wolf promises to be good. So, it reminds me of the big bad wolf following me around throughout second life. Well, he never was bad actually.
The wolf of course never gives up to chase little red riding hood. In this case, it may be a good thing, because if he didn't well she would be all alone.

I guess I am gonna keep this wolf around, he is pretty harmless under all this fur. I mean just look at those big blue eyes so he can see me better. Look at those big hands so he can hold me extra tight. Look at that big mouth so he can scare all the other bad wolves away. You just gotta love him as he sings:
"What a big heart I have-the better to love you with.

Little Red Riding Hood

Even bad wolves can be good.

I'll try to be satisfied just to walk close by your side.

Maybe you'll see things my way before we get to grandma's place."

I am gonna make sure I take the loooong way to granny's house...wink!!!
Come and visit the Retreat and take your pictures of a story :)

The "new" Basement Club!!!

It was long due to change the Basement Club. I originally build the Basement after the "Full Monty" left here. I decided to make the Basement Club right under the same property.

We now entered a new sophisticated era of the Basement Club. The look is elegant, yet still casual. There is seating for those who do not want to dance and just hang out.

Places to go and P a r t y!!!

If you are looking for some places to go and want something different??? Yes??? Here are a few recommendations for you.
1.The first one has just reopened at its new location:
Want to support the Veterans? The come Friday Nights to the Tailhook Club.
DJ Likka every Friday 6-8 PM SLT
2.  The Club on Monday Nights 8-10 with DJ Dandy and also Thursday Nights with DJ Likka 8-10 PM. The reason why they are different is that you will find friendly people and the music you do not hear everywhere. It is music, not just tunes.




DJ Dandy 8-10 PM every Monday and DJ Likka 8-10 every Thursday

3. Totally 80s is just that, it focuses on the 80s music. Stop by on a Saturday night 8-10 PM SLT and listen in. Make some new friends. This place is always packed no matter what day or time you stop by, but if you love the 80s it is all worth it.

DJ Likka every Saturday 8-10 PM SLT
