VE Day and Bank Holiday





Today is Victory in Europe Day and a public holiday in the UK.

This VE day commemorates the 75th anniversary of defeating Germany's aspiration for world dominance, for the second time in the same century.

On 8th May 1945, Prime Minister Winston Churchill announced on the radio that the second war in Europe had come to an end, following Germany's surrender the day before.

A three day event was planned from 8th to 10th of May with pageantry and regalia, but has sadly been cancelled due to Coronavirus.

There will be 2 minutes silence for the fallen at 11am UK, and Her Majesty The Queen will address the nation at 9pm UK.

We hope you will celebrate VE day with us in Second Life.  Bailey has a special event planned tonight at Lala's with patriotic music and pomp for us all to enjoy.

In this Together





And of course, a dance around the Maypole!

Happy 100th Captain Tom Moore



Captain Tom Moore is celebrating his 100th birthday at home with his family after his heroic fundraising efforts raised more than £30million for the NHS.

The World War Two veteran set out to walk 100 laps of his garden before his birthday today and set an initial target of  raising £1,000.

His fundraising efforts have since taken off and made him into a cult celebrity figure, and he has continued to walk laps of his garden and raise more money during the coronavirus pandemic.

A Battle of Britain Memorial Flight flypast of a Spitfire and a Hurricane arranged by the RAF flew over Capt Moore's home to mark his birthday, and he has been appointed as an honorary colonel.

He has received tributes from Her Majesty the Queen and the Prime Minister, as well as over 125,000 Birthday cards.  He also set a new Guinness World Record for the most amount of money ever raised by an individual doing a charity walk. 

Happy Birthday to a national hero.

Fur coat and no knickers



Imagine how shocked we were to discover a lack of ladies underwear for the Free Altamura bodies and clothing offered in London City.

Also, just imagine how we found out!   Well panic not!  Ladies no longer need to scurry around with a hand on their ha'penny fearing embarrassment from a gust of wind irreparably damaging their reputation.

The lovely people at No Shot, have made these wonderful undies especially for Altamura, complete with a colour change HUD, so your collars and cuffs can always match.  And they are available in the Freebie Megastore as a Free Gift.

Thank you No Shot for saving our dignity.
