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.

Check out the example show home here:     This complete build, including furnishings uses 171 prims, the parcel supports 244, prims leaving you enough for a car and garage or whatever else you decide to build.

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.

You might be concerned about uninvited guests, but this is no problem at all because all parcels are highly configurable and offer total privacy and security. If you decide to set your land to 'private', only you and your guests can enter your parcel.  If you configure 'see and chat' no one else can see you inside your parcel.  If you set voice to the parcel channel, no one outside your parcel can hear you!

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:
Media/Music stream  settings
Deed Objects such as tv and radio changers
Eject and Freeze Residents
Eject from Group
Control Allowed and Banned Residents list
Set Home to Here
Return deeded objects
Set privacy (see & chat with others)
Set land to public or private access.

Parcel size and Prim amounts are available in 3 flavours and rentals start from 400L per week:

28 x 28 meters with 148 prims
36 x 36 meters with 244 prims
36 x 44 meters with 327 prims

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.

Pan's People - Join in London's LGBT Pride Events

With London LGBT Pride just around the corner, next Saturday 27th June, we're looking to recreate some acts from the 70s as part of the all day event in London City.

We are seeking the chiffon clad dancers, Pan's People to dance to some high energy sounds between acts on the main stage.

If you have always fancied being a performer, now is your chance!   Pans People are needed from 9am SLT (5pm UK) onward.   Because it is a long set and we realise that not everyone will be available throughout, we are hoping to get ten residents to help us represent the five girls through the days events.

You do not need to change your avatar skin or shape but will need to dress the same as the other performers and will share in the tips.   For information please contact rubyjones in Second Life.

Authorised Linden Dollar Reseller Program Ends

Back in 2013 Linden Lab prohibited the sale buying of Linden Dollars by companies who would subsequently resell dollars, often at a rate more favourable than the official Lindex Exchange.

In June 2013 Linden Lab permitted resellers to sell Linden Dollars but not to purchase them from residents, effectively forcing the purchase of L$ to go through the Lindex Exchange.

On 15th June 2015, Linden Lab has announced the end of its Authorised Reseller program, giving 3rd party money sellers until the 1st August to sell off any L$ they have remaining.

From 1st August the Lindex will be the only authorised place to purchase Linden Dollars.

See this link for announcement by Linden Lab

Linden Lab:
We have expanded the payment options for Second Life users, and today, you can easily purchase L$ in more countries than ever before, using a credit card, PayPal, or Skrill, which supports a wide range of payment methods. We’ve found that these options support the vast majority of Second Life users, and we have therefore made the business decision to close the Authorized Linden Dollar Reseller pilot program.
We are contacting program participants directly to detail the next steps for them, and they will have approximately six weeks to sell off their L$ inventory

The great British Summer.   Cold sunny days, boiling hot rainy days.  You would never want to trade it for a stable climate would you?

In RL don't forget to pack along with your picnic, a brolly, raincoat and wellies, the Summer is finally here.

This year we have gone all tropical in Second Life and it is sand sea and surf all the way, so all you need is some beach wear and a margarita!

Red hot action at THE CROWN. (12pm SL / 8pm UK)

The reimagining of the original Crown is complete and the doors have opened!

Earlier in the year when the Crown moved from London City Victoria to London City Soho it occupied the Comptons building and more or less took on its persona, but visitors missed the spectacle of tits'n'ass, so manager Ruby Jones has gone about fixing this.

The new Crown recaptures its original intent, a place where sexy swingers, singles and those in love with the beauty of bare flesh can come and meet other like minds and party the night away.

Adding a brand new feature, the outside pool area, it the opportunity to get some sun on your skin, whilst drinking in a heady atmosphere in a chilled and relaxing environment.

The sexy music is carefully chosen to add to the experience and just like before, everyone is welcome, gay, straight or in between, it doesn't matter, just have an open mind and be tollerant.   You can relax in the pool, dance on the poles or if you are more of an exhibitionist, we're sure you will find a way to display your very best assets.

The Crown is open daily at 12pm SL (8pm UK).  Come on over and bare as much as you dare.
