Review of the Weekend



Goodness that weekend will take some getting over.

On Saturday Elle's fundraiser for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer raised over L7K to aid the charity.  The theme in London City3's park for a sock hop and you can be sure of another equally popular themed event next Saturday.   A big thank you to everyone who attended and donated.


After the Dorothy Squires concert (Video to come) Juiced was buzzing with a Teddy Bears Picnic theme night.


On Sunday during 'renovations' we said good bye to two of our classic ambience characters, Fanny and Wally, but we gave them a great send off.


Just hours later, grieving residents claimed to have spotted Fanny at Comptons dancing the night away.   We have put this down to mass hysteria.   We would never kill off characters just to bring them back in time for Halloween.   Would we?

Finally a big thank you to Sarah Tremor for sponsoring a super event on Friday night at Bar Soho donating many wonderful prizes to clubbers from her most excellent Edelfabrik clothing store which you can visit here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City3/228/108/24










We'll get the video up as soon as possible.  It's been one of those weekend where the time ran away from us.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, other than skin cancer. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer.

The chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer some time during her life is about 1 in 8. The chance of dying from breast cancer is about 1 in 36.

Breast cancer death rates have been going down. This is probably the result of finding the cancer earlier and better treatment. Right now there are more than 2.9 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.

Breast cancer also occurs in men. The American Cancer Society estimates for breast cancer in men in the United States for 2014 are:

About 2,360 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed.
About 430 men will die from breast cancer.
Breast cancer is about 100 times less common among men than among women. For men, the lifetime risk of getting breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000. The number of breast cancer cases in men relative to the population has been fairly stable over the last 30 years.
