Two’s Company

A couple of weeks ago I got the opportunity to collaborate with my twinny, fellow blogger and friend Divos on a presentation for the Blogger & Vlogger Network. Our subject du jour was Collaborating with Other Bloggers and during the presentation we set a bit of a challenge for the bloggers of BVN to collaborate…

Down, but not out

I’ve had a very peculiar week and weekend emotionally. Nothing particularly triggered it but I found myself feeling lower than I have in a long time with no good reason. However, once I was down it seemed like everything that happened just pushed me down deeper into my doldrum. Even Facebook had a ‘kick her…

Call me at Diner Time – Speed Edit

I finally got around to doing another speed edit vlog!!! I really enjoy doing these and had been planning for this one since I received the diner set from unKindness. Obviously, this release, at Collabor88, ties in perfectly with so many of the items available at The Vintage Fair and a few other vintage and…

There are places I remember

I’ve been a little quiet over the last few days for a number of reasons. SL going down as I was about to do some work, RL needing to drive around the country trying to find a plumbing part so my en suite bathroom would work again, and watching a lot of the news from…

Cruel, Cruel Summer

I have a super busy day, and weekend ahead so it’s not a hugely long post from me today. It’s not a cruel summer at all so far…it’s quite a blessed and happy summer…even if Facebook did try to put a spanner in the works this morning with a 2 year old memory.  It didn’t…

Sticking Your Head in the Sand

If you love clothes and shopping and hate politics you might want to skip to the ‘About the Stuff’ section today…sorry, not sorry. The title of the post is something I imagine the majority of the Tory leadership doing this morning and judging by  a few of the idiots they have rolled out on the…

Work Hard, Play Harder

Back in the 70’s, and 80’s I think, Mars used the slogan ‘a Mars a day helps you work, rest and play’ in the UK and some other countries too I believe. It’s become one of the most famous advertising slogans and is still remembered today. Several years after they stopped using it a study…

A Smile Is a Curve That Sets Everything Straight

I’m a book reader. I read every night before I go to sleep. No matter how tired I am I have to read at least a page of a book to help me unwind and replace all the muddle of other stuff in my head with a story I can get lost in.  It’s rarely…

The Age of Entitlement

As always, my blog is where I get to shoot from the hip if I choose to. This is going to be one of those straight-talking posts. Not a rant…hopefully, but my opinion on what I’m seeing more and more in Second Life. Over entitled, spoiled, whiny-ass, allegedly grown adults sucking the fun out of…

Goodbye, TaKe Heart

I’ve put off writing this post….wondering if I might change my mind, but, as the day draws nearer I’m still quite sure that this is the right thing to do. I’m going to let my sim, TaKe Heart, go.  It has been a glorious 8 months with TaKe Heart as my home, and I know…

I Know Him So Well

I joked about using this title as one of the most well known songs from the Tim Rice musical Chess while I was taking this photograph.  Tim Rice was a very well known lyricist having worked on many hit musicals with Andrew Lloyd Webber but completed Chess, a cold war themed musical play, with Benny and…

Blogging Applications – Do’s and Don’ts

Trust me, I know how it is. You see one of your favourite stores or events opening blogger applications and you want that assignment so bad! Applications close in a week but you gotta fill that form out right now! In the next 10 seconds….quickly.  Of course, there’s a while to go so you don’t…
