Happy Birthday Ma'am

The Queen celebrates her 96th Birthday today.

In a new picture, issued to mark the occasion, it shows her Majesty with her two ponies on the Norfolk estate.

Prince Philip spent much of his retirement at the estate since 2017 and the Queen used to regularly visit until the Covid pandemic forced them both to move back to Windsor castle.

Buckingham Palace says it is not planning any kind of public events around her birthday, though there will be tributes from her family.

Kate Bush - Saturday

Out of the blue, at the age of 19, Kate Bush topped the UK singles chart with her debut single Wuthering Heights and was the first British woman to have a UK number one with a song she had penned herself.

She has had a further 25 top 40 hits with songs, The Man with the Child in his Eyes, Babooshka, Running Up that Hill, Wow, Don't Give Up, King of The Mountain and many more.

She had not performed on stage in nearly twenty years, but in 2015 did a brief tour for die-hard fans where tickets are changing hands in excess of £400.

Enjoy the music of Kate Bush this weekend in London City as we pay tribute to one of Britain's icons of the 70s and 80s.

The Party starts at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the Concert an hour later at 1pm SL.

How to cure anxiety - NHS 'Game Change' via Virtual World

Virtual reality therapy has successfully been used to treat NHS patients with severe anxiety and agoraphobia in a trial led by Oxford University.

The immersive technology helped them move from a “housebound existence to life back in the world outside”, according to a study published 5th April 2022, in The Lancet Psychiatry.

Social Avoidance is a huge issue which has been greatly acerbated in the past few years due to world events, but no one should ever need to feel isolated, due to a wealth of similar like-minded people, who can all connect with each other and enjoy the fun and connectivity of a virtual world.

'Second Life' by Linden Lab is the largest virtual world and will shortly be in it's 20th year.  It is fully inclusive and offers its users, called Residents, the opportunity to engage with people anywhere in the world, using Avatars that represent the persona they are or would wish to be,  build friendships, relationships, visit attractions, events, concerts, and most importantly, interact from the comfort of their own home.    

You do not need a headset and viewers support PC, Mac, Linux and some mobile devices.
