Khodovarikha

Khodovarikha – in Russian: Ходовариха – is a weather station located on the coast of the freezing Barents Sea. It consists of a land spit projecting eastwards (Latitude: 68° 57′ Longitude: 53° 45′).
You can visit this place in Second Life. Wear some warm clothes when you come here because it is very cold. We had to take little breaks to warm up. I think Greg even fell asleep. (What else is new!)

You will see some gorgeous northern lights in the sky. It looks so pretty in this cold place.

We even had Mario visit here, I guess he was looking for Luigi....lol
Why not stop by today and explore before it is gone. Khodovarikha

The Bride of Frankenstein

Since I cannot be anyone's bride I decided I will be the bride of Frankenstein. After all the real Frankenstein castle is located in Germany near my hometown.

Little is known certainly of Dippel, whose life is shrouded in mystery and legend. His interest in alchemy led him to search for the elixir vitae and the philosopher's stone, and he is said to have been interested in creating artificial life. He was also alleged to practice grave-robbing. Dippel's Oil, a concoction of bones, blood, and other bodily fluids distilled in iron tubes and other alchemical equipment, was intended as the elixir vitae but served only as a stimulant. Dippel offered his next formula, which he claimed was the true elixir of life, to the Landgrave of Hesse in exchange for Castle Frankenstein. It is said that Dippel signed his name "Frankenstein" after his place of residence.

The connection between Dippel and the Castle of Frankenstein on the Rhine near Darmstadt has led some critics to suggest Dippel as the original of Mary Shelley's Victor Frankenstein. But the paucity of material about his actual life leaves much room for doubt, and many of the traits attributed to him may post date Mary Shelley's novel. There is also considerable doubt about whether Mary Shelley could have known about Dippel's life.

Stop by the Retreat, we are getting ready for Halloween and you never know " Herr Dippel" may suddenly appear. Perhaps you see the bride of Frankenstein.

REZZ Day and the 7:31

“Anyone can love a rose, but it takes a great deal to love a leaf. It’s ordinary to love the beautiful, but it’s beautiful to love the ordinary” 

Well if that is true I may not be a rose nor a leaf. Today was my REZZ Day. A Rezz Day in Second Life is the day when you logged on for the very first time as your avatar. The day you were born into the "in world" of residents. To some, this is a big day to be celebrated big and to others just another day. Exactly like we would do it in real life. Those of you are roses may be remembered and the leaves may not get those good wishes.

I got this  "Kiss me, it's my rezz day" from a total stranger today. That was not ordinary but very cool. At least I got something. It is the little things that count.

Later that day at the Sunday set at the Basement Club we played the "Travis Train" game and for the first time, we had CANDI guessed the time exactly on the dot...yeah for 7:31. If you are wondering what the game is all about and how to win some lindens, then come by the 6-8 PM SLT set on Sundays at the Basement Club.

Greg landed in the water because of his forgetfulness

ok, I will give him another chance to redeem :)

Totally 80s Club

"A warm cozy club where 80's music reigns all the time! Chat with the DJs, staff and other fans of the 80s music in this fun club filled with dancing and other activities."

Hope to see you there:

Yes, I do play requests, so bring them with you. The Club is usually very full so squeeze yourself in, we will make room.

Fall has arrived

The Retreat has its fall colors. The yellow rapaseed (AKA as rapeseed) plant can be seen throughout the Retreat. The plant is used for canola oil and also biofuels in Europe and Canada. Very little is used in the United States, which is kind of sad when you think about it how pretty the plant is and what great uses you have for it.

I love this time of year and it reminds me of home in many ways.

You can see miles and miles the yellow flax blooming in Fall in Germany. It is a gorgeous sight.

Sweet Home Alabama!!!

This is not referred to the song or the movie...this is all about the room I created for Greg. Originally, I planned it for a guest room and then some people suggested it should be a nursery. Well, no. 
I was trying to get the color Crimson just right, but I think it does not match perfectly and Greg thought that was pretty funny.
But, hey I think it looks pretty fantastic made by a non roll-tider.

Stop by the Retreat and check it out and if you have some Alabama outfits, this would be a great place to show them off at.
Good Luck!!!

Roll tide, roll!
