Home For Christmas in London City



If you rent a land parcel and pay 4 weeks before 1st December, to avoid any unnecessary concerns that your rent will expire during the holiday season, we will extend your rental to 4th January.

With just one payment of 4 weeks, you are Home for Christmas with 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 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 someone annoys you, add them to your ban list!  Everything is configurable.

Each parcel comes with an impressive level of configuration 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.

Our Cilla to play this Saturday




There were two main acts that dominated Britain in the 1960's.   One was the Beatles, the other was Cilla.

Whilst perhaps not quite as tuneful as Dusty or Sandy, our Cilla had an appeal to those who were waiting for the next big thing to emerge from Liverpool and the Beatles fans catapulted her into super stardom.

Singing all her hits and some that weren't - Don't miss this most famous icon of the 60s on Saturday in London City.  The party starts at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the show an hour later at 1pm SL.

Party in The Park with Joe Dolan!



JOE DOLAN in London City on Saturday!

Joe Dolan was an Irish entertainer and recording artist.
He is known mainly for his flamboyant shows which include many well know standards and for his high pitched singing voice, without using falsetto, which is reminiscent of Greek singer Demis Roussos.

Whilst Joe never achieved notable chart success in America, he regularly toured the States and played a residency in Vegas.  In Ireland he is the only Irish singer to have charted in the top ten in each decade from the 1960s onwards.

Joe Dolan died in 2007, but his talents live on and whilst you may not be familiar with the singer you will certainly know the songs and enjoy Joe's rendition.

On Saturday we invite you to enjoy this remarkable entertainer at Party in The Park.

Party starts at 12pm SL (8pm  UK) and the show is an hour later at 1pm SL.

America Votes



For many, it is about choosing the lesser of the two evils. For others it is a decision whether or not to stay on the same path, or veer from it with an untested politician who promises a brighter future.

However you decide, have a great day and sincere thanks for one of the best ever reality shows.

London City Votes



We polled visitors again this week about the American Presidential Election.  These are the results from the three polls from March, June and November.

If this is at all reflective of how America votes, this could be one of the closest elections of all time with the Donald gaining significant ground on Clinton who has always been in the lead.

March
Trump 43.0%   Clinton 57.0%

June
Trump 41.6%   Clinton 58.4%

November
Trump 49.3%  Clinton 50.7%



That said.. remember when we polled you about In/Out of Europe just ahead of the big vote and only 38% thought we should leave.  On the day itself 52% voted to Leave!
