After the holidays BARN SALE !

The Barn Sale is coming to the Retreat. No, it is not the barn that is being sold, but items from my inventory. Most items are 10L$ and some are "no copy" items, which means there is only one of them. The resident who buys it first gets it.

Items are furniture, decor, maybe some clothes, gift cards and more.

There will also be KittyCats for sale and they will be 100L$ and less. If you look careful there is one for only 5L$.

As items sell I add more if I have them, so come often and check it out.

The little gift hunt ends December 31, 2014, so hurry before they are gone. The Advents calendar is still up and 24 goodies are up for grabs. So far over 2200 items were given out. Insane :)

Of course Winter remains at the Retreat until January 31, 2015 and after that Spring will arrive and flowers will bloom and the arrival of the new swimming pool. This will be just in time for Valentine's Day.

You probably noticed the Retreat expanded its land, much more In the way back of the land you will find the TUK TUK and you can test drive it if you are a group member. Hurry and get your group tag on. The TUK TUK seats more than one person.

Merry Christmas :)

Wishing all my Second Life friends a wonderful Christmas. May all your wishes have been fulfilled for you, especially love.

You packed your last two bags.
A taxi's 'round the bend.
You used to laugh out loud,
But you can't remember when.
You lost your lies.
It's like your moving out of time,
And the whole word
crumbles right beneath you.

So, I might've made a few mistakes,
But that was back when you would smile,
And we would go everywhere,
But we ain't been there for awhile.
And this I know,
There's a place that we can go-
A place where I can finally let you know.

'Cause I'm the one that loves you lately.
You and me, we got this great thing.
We're the only one's that around,
We're the only one's that around this Babylon.

I hope you find
whatever you've been lookin' for.
Just remember where you're from
and who you are,
'Cause there's a thousand lights
that'll make you feel brand new,
But if you ever lose your way,
I'll leave one on for you.

'Cause I'm the one that loves you lately.
You and me, we got this great thing.
So, come back and you sit down. Relax.
Everything's to see
that you've come a long, long way,
And it's the place that you should be.

'Cause I'm the one that loves you lately.
You and me, we got this great thing.
'Cause I'm the one that loves you lately.
You and me, we got this great thing.
And we're the only one's that around,
We're the only one's that around this Babylon.

VIDEO: Falling Snow

Let it snow is a beautiful Winter Sim. You want to go here with someone so you can dance and play in the snow. It is a very romantic place. You can also come here if you just want to get away from it all and enjoy the calm Winter as the snow falls.


See the pretty snowflakes,
Falling from the sky;
On the wall and housetops,
Soft and thick they lie.

On the window ledges,
On the branches bare;
Now how fast they gather,
Filling all the air.

Look into the garden,
Where the grass was green;
Covered by the snowflakes,
Not a blade is seen.

Now the bare black bushes,
All look soft and white,
Every twig is laden,
What a pretty sight!

A dark world where faeries, demons and clockwork constructs (powered by gears and magic), humans, vampires, were-beasts and celestials roam the streets. All held against the ravages of time by magic, intrigue and human ingenuity.

That evening I followed him to the galaxy of the planet NeoVictoria.

He promised to shield me from the evils of the night.

I think along the way I lost my head.

Santa came early to the Retreat :)

Looks like Santa stopped by the Retreat and brought some goodies which then were rewarded by some warm kisses. Even Santa needs a hug and kiss once in awhile. All those cookies and milk cannot be good. He told me he prefers the kisses much more than the donuts I left on the fireplace for him.

Horsing Around !

“A horse loves freedom, and the weariest old work horse will roll on the ground or break into a lumbering gallop when he is turned loose into the open.” 
― Gerald Raftery

Vauhn and myself decided to go and check out some horses. We may add them to the Retreat.

 He is a pretty good rider. 

I then showed Vauhn my Carousel horses. They are actually pretty fun and have a cool motor noise. (I think I can outrun him.)
 The Retreat looks good even from down here the street level. Maybe a nice area to set the horses up. We have to research this a bit more.
