Bremain




The EU referendum was the largest ever democratic vote in the UK, with 33 million people taking part and 17 million (52%) voting to leave the EU.


With just 9 days to go before we are due to leave the EU, this week Brexit is sounding more like Bremain.  Politicians on both sides of the house, are doing everything they can to overturn the will of the people they represent and to thwart Brexit once and for all.

You can make your voice heard by flying the flag of your choice, "Leave means Leave", or opt for the Tony Blair approach of "Stop Brexit", regardless of how the people voted!

They are available just outside the Freebie Megastore here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/102/223/24

Gateway Makeover




The Gateway is receiving a makeover as part of the "Spring refresh".  The new layout establishes the 'city mood', before new residents enter the main London City regions.

New users now have to opportunity to do a bit of freebie shopping in London streets, go charity shop shopping, visit the fair, or sail on the boating lake, whilst learning the basics of Second Life.

We hope you like the look of the new layout.

Happy St. Patrick's Day




Good morning, and how is your head?

A friend of mine once said to me, that if he woke up with a few bruises on a Sunday morning, he knew it had been a good Saturday night.    If SL bodies bruised, there would be as grid-wide shortage of witch hazel today.

We celebrated last night with The Dubliners, and boy did we have a ball.  It is not over yet, as today is St. Patrick's day itself and Substation at 12pm SL and then Worlds End on the Beach from 2pm SL will continue the celebrations!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone.. pass the aspirin.

Dubliners on Saturday



It is the St. Patrick's Day Weekend, the biggest piss-up since New Years Eve!

Get down to the shops early to make sure you get all the grog you need.  With St. Pat's being a Saturday this year, you can be sure of long queues in the Guinness isle!

Join us in London City for Irish jigs, Irish Pub Songs and Folk Songs and The Dubliners!

The Dubliners are here in concert (so they are).  Drinks will be flowing, (so they will), the fife will be playing (so it will) and we'll all be singing along to famous folk music.  If you don't know the words, the just keep supping-up until you do.

Party in The Park starts at 1pm SL (8pm UK) with the show at 2pm SL.

The Old Bull and Bush




The wartime pub in London City.

The pub has its own voice parcel, 24 hour 1940's radio stream, board games, drinks and leader board competitions.

Today we added a game of draughts (checkers) which uses proper rules, where you can take a whole series of your opponents pieces if you line them up correctly.

So keep an eye on the pub, its a bit of leisurely fun and its all come together quite nicely.

You can visit the Bull and Bush here:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/48/184/24


Some people are such bad losers
