    Saw this on the destinations guide and decided to check it out.

    Very glad I did too as it is a beautiful winter theme sim. Slow jazz playing on the radio as you walk around in the falling snow.

    The Sim description is: “Welcome to a new chapter of the Telrunya sims, a truly magical Winter Wonderland in its captivating and unique beauty. A gorgeous landscape where time stands still, especially made for you… to just be.

    And I totally agree. Hopefully my pics do it justice 🙂

    Comments Off on The Mill, Pale Moonlight

    Off on SL adventures today, 2 in a single go 😀

    Next on the journey is a lovely SIM called The Mill, Pale Moonlight by ShakespearesFriends: “Maxie and Shakes Mill – because it all started with a Mill and a sink.. Welcome to our house, decorated by us. Hope you like it as much as we do!”

    It is a beautifully detailed place to visit, with many pose ball blankets, cars, tables for you to grab some lovely pictures with your friends. They have the slow radio channel playing which means you are kept very relaxed while you enjoy.

    Preiddeu Annwan is a lovely sim created to be a “visual representation of a medieval Welsh poem from The Book of Taliesin, early fourteenth-century” and I personally think it is a lovely creation. If you have your media running, then you will hear a track of the poem being read and it helps make the experience a ver immersive one.

    I would very much recommend going to see it and experience the SIM.

    Back after a long wait but once again having fun exploring SL and taking photographs 🙂

    First stop on the revamp tour is Havendale Village. The Village is “Fun & magical fantasy-themed sim with homes, games, hangouts, and shopping. Family friendly and welcomes role-players to live their magical lifestyles.”

    It is a lovely looking SIM and has Rental opportunities for both residential and stores.

    I saw this on the SL loading screen and thought I would take a look -:o)

    You land in the SIM`s landing point which is a very nice little bed for you to enter your dreams (as shown in the page header image). From here you sit on the bed and are then taken to the main SIM itself.

    It  has some lovely peaceful music playing as you explore which did keep me on the SIM even after I had finished capturing pics.

    The SIM has a number of very lovely spots that you can grab pictures, both singles and couples, as well as a lovely sim to wander around. Take a picture on the bridge, on the boat in the bay, outside on the porch of the house, or in the lantern garden.

    Definitely worth a visit either alone of with your partner -:o)

    Herd of the Wind – http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Twilight%20Caye/34/12/2502

    ~*^Herd Of The Wind .^*~
    -A Place to be You-
    A public western themed sim celebrating the horse community, RP, nature, animals, and art.

    My explorations of SL landing page SIMs continue with an exploration of “Herd of the Wind”.

    The sim is apparently 100% mesh scenery and wildlife. This makes for a very nice looking SIM where you can explore and take photos. There are a number of places you can sit/lay/pose and grab some memories either on your own r with friends.

    Youl and initially in a skybox and you will need to join the group to use the Teleporter to the main SIM. The group join is free and you are added instantly. You can then use the teleporter down to the main SIM at ground level.

    It is a lovely looking SIM and with windlight settings on the right choices, you can grab some amazingly artistic pictures (though most of the below were just on a “Tropicalia and “midday1” sun settings). I think it is the 4th image in the below carousel that is the “Sailor`s Delight” setting and provides a beautiful bright picture of the barn and surrounding land.

    Beachwood Club [B-Club] – http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Beachwood/33/39/41

    Beachwood Club is the premier venue for true House Music in Second Life. We spin 24/7 with only the best LIVE DJs. We are also featured in the Second Life official guide (Showcase).

    Designed and built specifically as an antidote to the usual blue neon, contest board, sploder nightclubs which can be found throughout Second Life, Beachwood Club ushered in a new era of pure, simple, clean venues (yes, we have been copied so we must be doing something right) with professional DJs spinning ONLY live sets for the true House Music enthusiast.

    Established in May 2008 by Kitty Umarov and Utrillo Barbosa, both low-key, no-drama people who just wanted to see people enjoy themselves in Second Life and give an opportunity to listen to real DJs. Later on the club was taken over by the General Manager (now Owner) Rex Scorfield and his amazing Management Team, built up to his best, who offer only the finest entertainment to a music loving crowd no matter what time or what day.

    So, if you’re having a low day or just in search of one of Second Life’s most fun places to meet people from all over the world, make sure you honor us with your visit anytime.

    If you see either owner in the club, feel free to say hello. We hope to see you soon, till then have a nice ride through the amazing world of Second Life!

    Beachwood Club, a place to see and be seen…

    Exploring SL – Noble goes Dutch

    Noble goes Dutch  “De Vesting” – http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Isle%20of%20Noble/149/210/22

    Noble Goes Dutch is a sim built for of love of the endless possibilities and creativity in this virtual world. This time, the creators tried to create a contemporary yet authentic Dutch village with typical Dutch elements. Come will find different spots to explore and enjoy, or simply chill and hang out with friends and loved ones. There will be live music events, art and photography exhibits at Begijnhof and the De Grote Markt.

    I saw this on the SL destination list and wasn`t able to go straight away. Today I changed that and I am glad that I did.

    The SIM has been very nicely and, in my mind, accurately to a dutch country landscape. It did almost instantly remind me of when I was there, so I took that as a good sign -:o).

    Thelanding zone is beside the boats and if you go left from there, you will pass the beach area which has a number of places to relax and take in the sun. If you go right from the landing zone, or if you continue past the beach, you will get to the countryside walk round the SIM. This is the part that reminded me of wandering around the Dutch countryside and the windmill is lovely to head towards as you walk round the path.

    In the middle of the SIM is a small town and market, though a number of the houses are private so you can`t enter them.

    What made it extra nice to be there was the slow radio music stream playing as you wander. It helps make the atmosphere a very lovely one which you could spend a fair amount of time on the SIM, especially on the beach…

    Bentham Forest – Haunted Dark Fantasy Forest – http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Elven%20Mist/111/204/22

    Wander and explore this dark foreboding landscape that is Bentham Forest. Photography quests halloween spooky trees evil scary eerie fae fairy elven drow art fairytale trees fantasy mushrooms spirits horror haunted Forest popular romance

    Bentham Forest is a lovely dark SIM that has some lovely looking designs on it. You will need to have ambient sounds and sound on as there is no music playing, but the ambient background is nicely “scary” and lends well to the SIM`s feel.

    Very easy to lose your bearing so it is fun to wander round and try and work out where you are….

    The SIM is currently on the “Featured” list on the SL loading screen of the SL Viewer so it is a little bit laggy even on high spec systems, but it is definitely worth a visit and a wander 🙂

    CF University – Cystic Fibrosis University – http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/BOOMER%20ISLAND/17/73/28

    Cystic Fibrosis Education Presented By The Boomer Esiason Foundation

    Presented by the Boomer Esiason Foundation, this region aims to educate the general public about cystic fibrosis, provides valuable resources to sufferers, and is a fun place to relax and socialize with the CF community.

    My SL charities exploring continues with a SIM dedicated to Cystic Fibrosis. The CF University by The Boomer Eliason Foundation is a very lovely SIM. They have a beautiful board walk down the side of a river, a balloon ride tour of the SIM, educational buildings and a gift shop.

    One of my favourite spots was the ballroom which I assume they hold functions in from time to time.

    I spent a lot of time in the building explaining treatments, symptoms, diagnosis, etc in. Each of the boards has a notecard that explains the various parts of the information on Cystic Fibrosis. The gift shop has a number of items you can buy along with a lot of freebies for you. Off to the side, they also have a sandbox for you to go play in and build to your hearts content.

    Please do visit this SIM and give your support to this charity and visit their website for more information amd to donate online… As with most charities, they can always do with your financial support 🙂

    What Is Cystic Fibrosis?

    Cystic fibrosis is a fatal genetic disorder that affects more than 30,000 Americans. Although CF is not yet curable, the situation is not hopeless. Every day since the CF gene was discovered in 1989, the pace of CF research has greatly accelerated. Today, 40 percent of the CF population is over the age of 18. And thanks to advances in medicine and technology, these adults are enjoying an improved quality of life.

    Causes

    Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease. That means people inherit it from their parents through genes (or DNA), which also determine a lot of other characteristics, including height, hair color and eye color. Genes, found in the nucleus of all the body’s cells, control cell function by serving as the blueprint for the production of proteins.

    Symptoms

    The severity of cystic fibrosis symptoms is different from person to person. New research shows that the severity of CF symptoms is partly based on the types of CF gene mutations, or defects. Scientists have found more than 1,500 different mutations of the CF gene.

    Diagnosis

    How can you know for sure if you or your child has cystic fibrosis? If someone in your family has the disease, could you pass it down to your children?

    Treatments

    Staying healthy and maintaining optimal lung function requires people with cystic fibrosis to follow a regular treatment routine. The therapies for CF include airway clearance techniques, a variety of medications and good nutrition. If and when a person with CF develops severe lung disease, they may discuss the option of lung transplantation with their CF care team.

    Research

    Scientists and researchers are working every day to find a cure for cystic fibrosis and also to develop treatments that greatly improve the quality of life for CF patients. Each day since the cystic fibrosis gene was discovered in 1989, the pace of CF research has greatly accelerated, and scientists continue to find ways to help those who live with the disease.
