Wrap up Warm



It must be spring, it's snowing!

They say this every year, but maybe this time they are right.   The UK is bracing for what promises to be the most snowfall seen in the country in over ten years.

Just about everywhere is going to receive a good 4 to 8 inches of snow over the next 24 hours, and 8 inches is indeed something to crow about!

There will never be a better excuse to get snowed-in and play Second Life until at least the middle of next week, so keep a beady eye on the forecasts, and make sure you have plenty of Armageddon-proof food in your cupboards.

So wrap up warm, get the kettle on and login to London City, where a cup of hot Bovril awaits you.

The Money Tree



Although having money in Second Life is not essential as there are many freebies out there, it can seriously hamper your game, especially when there are so many "almost free" accessories now available, where you need from 1 to 5 Lindens to purchase them.

We are always going to recommend users to upgrade their accounts to premium and take advantage of weekly stipend payments, live chat support, a free home and 512 parcel), but it is also important to recognize that for a lot of folk, they want to be able to play 'the game' without any financial outlay.

The Money Tree in London City can help newer users to accumulate some linden dollars to pay for these "almost free" items, and playing is simple.  Just click the notes when they fall from the tree, before they disappear and you will instantly receive a linden dollar for each note you click!

Enjoy the London City Money Tree.

Premiere: The Nolans in Concert, on Saturday



The Nolan's, who originally formed in 1974 as The Nolan Sisters, are an Irish/British girl group, famous for uptempo covers of well known songs.

In their own right, they are most famous for I'm In The Mood For Dancing, which when released in 1979, topped the charts around the world, and to this day, remains one of the most famous disco songs of the era.

The sisters, Anne, Denise, Maureen, Linda and Bernie, became regular favourites, appearing on many weekly prime-time shows, including The Two Ronnies.

Family feuds, ill health and the death of Bernie, put a stop to their act in the 2000's but the band reformed again in 2009, but stopped performing again by 2014.

Enjoy this show on Saturday at 12pm SL time (8pm UK), featuring all the Nolan's at the height of their popularity, with special guest, Kim Woodburn, who recently appeared quite demented along side Coleen Nolan on multiple shows!

Be sure to write this in your diary, it is bound to happen!

The defeat of Mrs May Brexit deal by 432 to 202, might be the biggest government defeat in modern times, but we predict, good ole Mrs May will get past this piffling annoyance, and pull a rabbit out of her hat.  By this time on Friday the worlds problems will be solved!
