Premier: Emmylou Harris Concert



Emmylou Harris is an American singer and songwriter.

Back in the 60s she was spotted by Gram Parsons who recognized her special talent of introducing harmonies that the song writers had overlooked.  After Gram's untimely and bizarre death, Emmylou went solo and carved her own career.

She has recorded with Bob Dylan, John Denver, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Roy Orbison, Neil Young and most recently toured with Mark Knopfler.

In 1995 she diverged from country for a new Indy-style sound for her album "Wrecking Ball", which was panned by critics as career suicide, and yet sold more then 5 million copies.  Since then Emmylou has periodically, continued to dip her toes into this unique style of music.

She went on to win 13 Grammy's and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008.

Emmylou Harris appears for the first time ever in London City on Saturday.   The party begins at 12pm SL time (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm SL time.

Severe storms about to hit the UK



Brace yourselves, they're on their way and in great British style, the storms will arrive at "tea time".

Where else on the planet, is "tea time" a recognized time of day, except in Blighty?

The Met Office has issued Amber alerts for most of the UK for today and tomorrow, with an inch of rain and hour falling throughout this evening and tomorrow.

Severe thunderstorms are expected to disrupt power networks, so make yourself a flask of tea and some corned beef sarnies and prepare to go back in time tonight and relive the blitz.

If you would like to track the storms progress, this super site shows you all the lightening strikes in real-time.  This presupposes you have internet access and power to your house!

So, strap yourselves down and enjoy the wild ride!

Trash or Treasure?



People are always throwing things away in the litter bins in London City.   You never know quite what you will find in there.  A useful gadget or even some cash.   By walking up to the bin a random gift will be given to you.

You can visit the litter bin in Regent's Park here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/88/205/23

And the reason for this reminder?  There is a wonderful Trump Anti-Stress doll for you to shake.

With over a hundred items in the trash can, be sure to visit it regularly!

Heatwave in England



Whatever you're doing today, enjoy the weather and don't forget to drink plenty of fluids, especially lashings of Hobgoblin.

With temperatures in London expected to reach 92F, today is the hottest day so far this year.

If you think this is freak weather, think again, only last year on 1st July it was 98F at Heathrow.

However, back in 2003 temperatures reached 102F which would make today seem positively chilly. If you remember that 8 day heatwave, don't forget to wrap up warm today.

The hottest nighttime on record was back in 1990 when it was 75F, but we're going to get close to that today, with an overnight of 71F.
