Happy 4th of July





Wishing our American friends across the great pond a very happy Independence Day.

On this day in 1776 the United States formally separated from Great Britain.

Thomas Jefferson, penned the Declaration of Independence and later went on to become America's 3rd President.  Nine years later, over breakfast one morning, he drew up the US Constitution, but history recalls it's principal author was actually 4th president James Madison.

Wherever you are, have a great day!

Build your own Home in London City






If you regularly visit London City and enjoy the community atmosphere, you may like the convenience of being able to build or rez your own home within a stones-throw of the centre of all the action in Second Life.

London City West - offers secluded parcels for maximum privacy

London City offers land plots where you can build or rez your own buildings and set home.  If you are not a builder, there are literally thousands of suitable houses available to purchase and rez.

Of course you might be a party person and like strangers dropping by.  You can set your parcel to public access and the world and his wife can visit.    If the world visiting is great but his wife annoys you, put her on the ban list.  Everything is configurable.

Each parcel comes with an impressive level of configurability to control your media, access and privacy.

The 'About Land' setting allows each tenant to configure:

Whitehouse Blogs: Today, love wins.






The Whitehouse blogs, "Today, gay and lesbian couples won their right to marry.  Today, love wins.

See the official Whitehouse blog here

USA Law - Same sex marriage legal in all 50 states





It is Gay Pride weekend in London and also in New York.

Just in time for Pride, the US Supreme Court has ruled that under the 14th amendment, same sex couples are to be accorded the same marital rights as opposite sex couples.

This means that Marriage equality finally becomes law in all 50 states of the USA.  Back as recent as 2009 only one state in the USA granted equality.   This act finally brings the USA, which prides itself as a forward thinking nation, in step with the human rights extended to all European citizens a decade ago.

Gay Pride in London City begins tomorrow at 9am SL / 5pm UK.
