Runaround Sue's, A Great Evening Out













I guess SL is a great place for virtual dancing as you don't have to rely on having a dance partner when you go out for the evening.  One of the nicest places for an SL night out is Runaround Sue's, it's been around for a long time and it's still as popular as ever.  The dance pads make it easy to join in and you can watch your avatar keeping nicely in step with everyone else.  The Runaround Sue's dj's play mostly vintage rock from the 50s onwards, so if you want to take a trip down memory lane it's ideal for you.  You do get a lot of couples there as well, so you can have a bit of a romantic evening at Sue's too. I dropped in and had some fun tonight as dj Joi and hostess Autum did a great job as more and more people arrived throughout the evening to join the party.

A Tree Full Of Crystal Magic From Hayabusa














How would you like a tree in your garden that bears crystals instead of fruit? Well you can buy such a tree in Second Life, another truly inspirational creation from the Hayabusa Design Team.  This tree has a wonderful range of colours in its hud, from Spring to Winter, with different hues of crystals too, so you can fit it in with any season. I put this gift from Hayabusa into my new Christmas landscape I am working on and it looks beautiful against the snowy background.  The tree is 10 prims and you can find out more at Hayabusa Design where you can browse their other wonderful trees and plants.

Remembrance Day Event At Zorro's Tavern 2017














I went over to Zorro's Tavern tonight where DJ TXBarbara Bailey was having a Remembrance event for the Veterans Day weekend.  She played a great set of hit songs and some touching military tunes too.  My thoughts are with all those soldiers who lost their lives or were injured and also to our brave Armed Forces who protect us to this day.

Beautiful Items For Sale At Dysfunctionality - And Yes, Some Gorgeous Low Prim Christmas Stuff Too!













I'm always on the look out for low prim stuff and as it's coming up to my favourite time of year, I've started looking around for Christmas decorations and bits and pieces.  By coincidence, I went on the Fifty Linden Friday hunt this week, which took me to a smashing store called Dysfunctionality, where the 50L item that day was a lovely sideboard with wooden stag figures on the top.  To my delight it was only 1 prim land impact, so I bought it.  I decided to go out shopping again tonight for some more Christmas stuff and as I looked through the destination guide in SL, I spotted the same store where I had bought the sideboard, so I went back over there for a proper look around.  I landed at the place where the Christmas decorations were for sale and the first thing I spotted was a gorgeous Christmas tree that was just 2 prims; It has a fantastic hud that changes the colour of the foliage as well as all of the items on the tree. There is a 50% discount on the tree at the moment, so it was under a 100 Lindens.  Everywhere I looked there was something I wanted, and all low prim. I did buy quite a lot of items, but the prices were excellent as well, so it's a great place to shop. The quality of the goods is amazing and the winter area is only a small section, there is furniture, garden centre stuff and all sorts, all beautifully made. I'm off now to start my decorating for Christmas. It's not quite so good this year, as I can't have snow on the ground where I have my parcel, but I'm creating a winter wonderland in the sky and I'm enjoying myself planning it all.

2017 Gunpowder Treason and Plot At Muckers With Rob's Fabulous Fireworks.














I had double the fun tonight, I watched a firework display in real life and then I watched another one in Second Life.  Yes it's Fireworks Night, or Bonfire Night, whatever you want to call it, it's the night that we remember Guy Fawkes, "Remember, Remember The Fifth Of November, Gunpowder, Treason And Plot" When Mr Fawkes was part of a gang who tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament in Britain in 1605.  Just at the moment there is so much scandal around politicians in the news that it looks like Parliament is blowing itself up! But, I digress!  lol.  Anyway poor old Guy got caught and he was tortured until he confessed, eventually coming to a very sticky end!   I've no idea why this failed plot to destroy Parliament has been celebrated all these year, but it is part of our tradition and we brave the cold and rain to have our firework displays and bonfires each November 5th.  I didn't have to go out in the cold tonight in SL though, Ed sent me a message that Rob Fenwitch was having a firework display over at the fabulous Mucker's club and I teleported over to join the gang.  Minxy was dj'ing and played some great tunes, whilst Fibi was hosting the evening for Mucker's owner Brucie. We danced and chatted until the end of the session when we went outside to see Rob's magnificent firework display. It was lovely, just like the real thing, bursts of bright colours filling the virtual skies.  I hope everyone had a brilliant Bonfire Night tonight, both in real life and in  SL!
