10th Anniversary Parade/Party Bay City

The party is on at Bay City’s 10th Anniversary Parade and Party as we celebrate ten years of the best Second Life community in Second Life. Yes, I know I’m biased but not because Cafe Sheree is based here. Bay City rocks as the community spirit here is very impressive.

I quickly felt at home at Bay City.

We gathered at Bay City Municipal Park at Harwich from 12NoonSLT. Everyone was in a jovial mood as we prepared for the parade under the esteemed leadership of Bay City’s Marianne McCann whose our Not Quite the Mayor.

Then off we left. A parade of fun loving Bay Citirians who showed off their Bay Pride.

There were four parade groups. Each of us strutting our stuff. Each of us with our own Bay Pride on as we headed to Bay City Showgrounds.

What a crowd. So many happy here wearing their Bay Pride. It makes me happy that I chose Bay City for Cafe Sheree. I got a chance to wiggle with well known Second Life adventurer/blogger, Daniel Voyager. Hey may not be hopping mad but he has the hippity hop.

Lindens also attended to party with us. Yay!

Four hours of entertainment with live performers and DJ’s.

I love you, Bay City! ♥

Sansara Touring with Z-Finest Adventures

When it comes to touring the grid to see what’s what in Second Life and learn about its features, one of the hardest sells is to convince someone to pay for a tour to see and learn about Second Life.

Why would you? Why would one pay when we can read about these things from information provided by Linden Lab? Right?

This is a point of view which I have long held so when I was offered the chance to experience one such tour, I jumped at the chance to see if my thoughts could be challenged.

I stand corrected.

Charley Johnson Tour Guide_003
Departing from Abbotts-Blacktip Historical Airport

Both tours I took departed from the Abbotts-Blacktip Historical Airport where I met with my tour guide, Charley Johnson for the Beanstalk and Bay City tours.

The first tour was the Beanstalk Tour which I found extremely interesting. I learned so much on this tour like how I didn’t know I could travel to the centre of the grid from my home by air and sea. And let’s not forget the final destination of the Beanstalk Tour, the beanstalk which I did not know was the first object built in Second Life and there it stands, tall and proud, open for all to hop up its leaves to the very top. If you can make it without splattering on the ground.

The second tour with Charley Johnson was the Bay City Tour explores interesting historic sites. Important sites of historical nature include Nexus Prime with a cyber punk theme located at Gibson and Bonifacio. This was once a busy location with tall buildings, shops, sewers and more.. This was one of the busiest regions in Second Life. The reason for the demise of Nexus Prime is provided by the tour guide.

With a flight over Bay City’s attractions pointed out as we flew over in a blimp at the right speed for the view to rez and take in the beauty of Bay City, I was fascinated to learn what I didn’t know about the community where I opened my coffee house, Cafe Sheree. Seeing the marina, unused tram tracks and a final destination including a short walk to Hairy Hippo Fun Land, ending with a ride on Loller Coaster.

Walking to Hairy Hippo Fun Land

What do you need to know before you choose which tour to venture on?

Information from the Tour Guide on the Beanstalk Tour is by text while Bay City Tour is by mic. Please keep in mind that you do not need to talk. That’s your personal choice. The Tour Guide uses mic to talk throughout the Bay City Tour.

Up until now, I would never have considered paying for a tour of Second Life but Charley Johnson from Z-Finest Destinations has brought me around to saying that some tours are worth paying for and I would pay for this. I stand by my word on this by admitting that I have since gifted a single ticket to a dear friend of mine who loved exploring Second Life and learning new things.

You can purchase your ticket in Marketplace at the cost for L$250 for a single ticket or a 5 ticket package for L$1,000.

I highly recommend Z-Destination Adventures’ tours. Give it a go. It’s worth the Lindens.

Breaking News: Bunny Captured!

Police have revealed that Abby Honeyflower’s killer has been apprehended while caught hiding in bushes.

In late February this year, the dead bloodied body of Abby Honeyflower was found in bushes where she was slain by a hopping mad bunny with evidence quickly pointing to the Easter Bunny which was quickly questioned by friends of the Easter Bunny who demanded it was an impersonator who committed this crime, not the Easter Bunny.

Owner of Land of Rainbows and morning jogger Kahvy Smith addressed the media from his hut that he was very happy with the capture of the killer, “OMG OMG OMG I’m so happy the Police captured that rascally rabbit. I even wore my sexy yellow short shorts for my morning run today. I also wore my amazing bunny ears.”

Still grieving the loss of her beloved partner at the hands of the bunny, Sheree Honeyflower told a reporter over the phone from her location at hideaway at Club Purr that she was happy that her love’s attacker has been caught and that it was safe to go back out among the bluebirds and buttercups.

Criminal defence laywer, Rodger Wabbit of  Tortoise & Hare Assoc. said only that they will only respond to allegations in the Court despite claiming that his arresting Police Officer used excessive force, “Teets! BBQ teets. That’s all!”

A witness claiming to have been standing behind glass doors is reported to have said that the bunny’s solicitor had his paws crossed.

Police Constable has been praised for his bravey in catching a violent axe weilding killer bunny on his own. Owner of Cacao Eggs was so pleased that he forwarded a box of chocolate egg flavoured donuts to Constable Hayo for making society safe by removing the bunny, “This is eggthelent!”

Police Constable Hayo spoke to the media via his union representative, responding that he was just doing his duty and he wasn’t fond of carrots that much at all.

Last seen in public led away in a Police car with only his ears protruding from the partially open roof top, family of the accused bunny made it known that he was the dark bunny of the family, “We’re disappointed that he took this path instead joining in the family business. It’s not as if it was a stressful life. He only had to work during the chocolate season and meet up for annual mating bunny swap. He was always hopping mad.”

Land of Rainbows is now closed to public while bunnies are busy digging for places to hide their eggs for you to find when the Land of Rainbows Egg Hunt starts 23rd of March to the 6th of April, 2018. There are plenty of eggs to find from heaps of designers and builders for you to find and enjoy.

Wanted for Murder: The Easter Bunny

Police have revealed the shocking revelation that the Easter Bunny is wanted for the suspicion of murder after the body of Abby Honeyflower was found butchered to death, her body left under trees at Land of Rainbows.

Owner of Land of Rainbows Kahvy Smith said he was shocked that this happened at his normally peaceful parkland, “I really don’t know what to say. The last thing I expected to see while on my morning run was to find a dead body here. Why Abby of all people? I don’t think I can wear these tight short shorts while running ever again.”

Distraught, local crazy woman and Abby Honeyflower’s partner, Sheree Honeyflower spoke briefly to the media about the murder of her lover.

“Why? All Abby does is visit places to take photos. She wouldn’t hurt anyone. If anyone finds that bunny, tell him I have a hot pot waiting for him on the fire.”

Investigating Police have released security footage of the Easter Bunny in what looks like a serious case of stalking Abby Honeyflower. One photo allegedly shows the Easter Bunny carrying a weapon said to be an axe in the house where Abby Honeyflower once lived.

Police ask people not to approach the Easter Bunny on the belief that he have more than cocoa hidden on his body. Detective Fox said, “Please, whatever you do, do not approach the Easter Bunny. You never know what nasty surprises he may have waiting for you.”

“The worst of the worst evidence will remain under secrecy for the benefit of a fair trial. The photos we are releasing today have only been released to allay conspiracy theories of what really happened. It’s clearly evident that the Easter Bunny has been visiting homes and places of interest to Abby Honeyflower.”

Spokesperson of the Cult of Cacao called on the Police and public to stop this witch hunt of the Easter Bunny, claiming that the bunny didn’t do it and that they have evidence leaked from the Police investigation showing that not only did the Easter Bunny not commit this horrendous crime but someone has set the bunny up.

“How dare they accuse our esteemed leader of killing this woman!”

“The Easter Bunny is kind and loving. He would never do anything like that and I challenge the Police to prove that this is even the real Easter Bunny but a maniac in a bunny suit disguised as our beloved bunny.”

“For this reason, we are releasing photos leaked us which the Police were hiding. Photos showing that Abby Honeyflower was murdered by a lover, the Easter Bunny whose so gay that he leave rainbow paw prints everywhere he goes.”


Media sources tell us that Abby Honeyflower’s partner, Sheree Honeyflower has gone into hiding. Some say that she’s not hiding but seeking solitude away from prying media and that the Police know where she currently is staying.

Friend of the Honeyflowers, Ripper Gigglesnort requested that the media give some space, “Go fuck yourself ya mangy bastards!”

Below are images taken by parkland security footage of this grisly murder scene.

Summer, Bondi Beach Sydney

It’s January 2018. For much of the world this is a cold time of the year but for those of us on the bottom half, it is summer or wet season, depending on how close or far you are from the equator.  Now with the holiday seasons out of the way and a holiday from blogging, it’s time to get stuck into it so where is best to start the new year but somewhere I know for real…

38821422744_ecbe4727bf_z

Sydney is my city of birth so I decided to spend some time relaxing inworld at Sydney and Bondi Beach regions inworld. It has been a long time since I have visited here as it this was very new at the time.

I can’t remember what Sydney looked when it opened in Second Life but I am happy with almost all of what I see. The inclusion of iconic sites has me feeling like I am at home. The Sydney Harbour Bridge is better than I thought it would be and the Australia Square Building is a must for any inworld Sydney build. Alterations of what’s real and what are rather interesting like Circular Quay where there is a display of Australian cars, minus the British Ford Cortina. The details of Australian cars has me very impressed.

I found a lovely place to lay down and relax at Circular Quay with the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, as towers of North Sydney stand proud in the background. This Holden V8 ute was rather comfy to lay on to rest my poor feet from all the walking along Sydney streets.

Now, there are several venues to dance your feet away so I would recommend you join Sydney’s local group ‘Sydney City, Australia’ to be in the loop of what’s hot. There’s also shopping for clothing and other items.

“Welcome to one of the best groups in Second Life! We enjoy all the great things in virtual Sydney and Bondi Beach including the best events featuring original talent acts entertainment, surfing, shopping and awesome events!”

I experienced nostalgia plus at the ferry terminal which is located at Circular Quay in real world of Sydney. Blue and white transport colours is old hat now and the hydrofoil is long retired but it was awesome to see it. They cut the length of the trip between Sydney and Manly by half. I personally prefer the large ferries.

There are two regions for Sydney and Bondi Beach. Sydney does have Luna Park with the crazy clown face to walk through its mouth but it looks like a dance venue. I’m not sure how they work it but it does look posh.

Bondi Beach is set up with the iconic building at the beach. There are sunbeds to lay out on your own or with a friend. Seschmet joined me to relax at Bondi Beach. We didn’t use the water floaties but rested on one of the many sunbeds.

I do have one personal criticism of Bondi Beach and that’s the dead shark hanging on the beach. Killing sharks as a sport no longer pleases most of us and we are mostly against shark nets so I was disappointed to see a dead shark hanging for all to see like some sports trophy.

We sat outside the pizza shop which has a dine in table set up inside and this outdoor garden furniture which needs adjusting for seating and photo comfort.

Bondi Beach has beautiful big waves however you can’t rez anything to enjoy the water but you can easily relax here. This area is well spread out for people to relax without getting into each others hair. Bondi Beach has a stunning presentation so why not put your togs/cosi(swimmers) on and lay out at Bondi Beach.

Don’t forget your walking shoes to explore Sydney. There are iconic buildings to admire and take your photos of.

Day 3 Winter in Oz 17th December

It’s been one funtastic weekend with Second Pride hosting Winter in Oz to celebrate Christmas along with any holiday season you participate in and what an event it was. Whew, I’m almost full of brandied egg nog from all the fun I had.

Today’s music was across a range of genres like old style rock, night club dance music and Christmas music. The number of people at Second Pride to celebrate was impressive and I was happy to see my friend, Megan find her way to a Pride event. The bug has bitten yet another.
