~ A collaboration between Isabelle & Moz! ~

Here’s Isabelle’s Blog and her video on YouTube and it’s from Harriet’s point of view 🙂

Here’s the same thing from Gabriel’s point of view:-

Yeah, well, I was trawling through Tinder when I came across this girl who looked like that reporter from the BBBC, the one I’d never stand a chance with.  Not that it was a second best thing because the Tinder babe… she made me laugh straight off, her profile was cool, she had a killer sense of humour and her appearance was a bonus so I made the connection! We decided to meet at the Equal10 Event and I ended up taking one of the new pups which was ailing a bit because the others had pushed it out of the basket, but after a few cuddles it calmed down and went to sleep.

So I TPed over to the Event and tried not to be distracted by new stuff from the likes of my namesake to mention but a few (it was Equal10’s first anniversary so there was a crapton of stuff y’know, it was very distracting), and I walked up the neon tracks to find the Junk Food vendor where we’d arranged to meet.  The first thing I saw was a Siberian tiger (not something you see everyday, right?) and by his side hanging onto a rope was the Tinder babe who was a dead ringer for the BBBC gal. She must like animals, I thought, good start.  It turned out later that the tiger was the idea of her friend James, in case I should jump on her bones right off, I mean the Tinder girl… not the tiger. I’ll have to have a word with him. Man, was I embarrassed when my date turned out to be THE Harriet of the Beeb. I mean why would she even have to use Tinder?  She must have blokes coming outta the floorboards to worship the ground she walks on.  But we chatted and got on well and she invited me to dinner but first she wanted me to play on the EXALTED gacha for a pair of PJs to match the ones she had already.

I’m game for anything – especially to do with shopping – so I did one Play and ladies and gentlemen… I won the Rare! Back to Harriet’s place where I changed in her bathroom, put the sleepy pup in the linen basket and so on to dinner. Wow, I have to say the dining plates served pizza like only Mama makes. So I had one of those, then I had a chocolate slice with crystallised orange and two coffees and after that I was anybodies, as they say!  We played on Harriet’s gaming machine which I noticed had a crapton of interesting animations not suitable for a first date.  My fingers were aching to press that section of the HUD but I did behave, kinda. And you know how rabbits bounce around, say no more, but there was even an animation for that – so lots of bouncing and gaming was done. Then we settled down for chat and cuddles which was getting molto romantico…  before the tiger decided that enough was enough even for bunnies, handed me back the pup which was STILL asleep, and the evening was over.

I really hope that when Harriet recovers from all the bouncing around, she will want another date… ladies and gentlemen we’ll have to wait and see!  Gabriel over and out 🙂

Green Fingers

with 8 comments

 

“Green fingers” is primarily an English phrase and it means if somebody has green fingers, then they’re very good at gardening and everything they touch flourishes. You can even say this in Hindi –  बाग़वानी में निपुणता – but it still means having this special ability to make the plants grow.

Second Life Home & Garden Expo 2019 #4

with 6 comments

 

The Expo is almost over for this year, it’ll run right through to Sunday April 7th and has Events on that day. It’s been a great fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, so far L$2,168,000 has been collected. With bids coming in for the Auctions and votes for the H&G Decorating contest, no doubt that total will rise.

For my final post, I thought I’d try out a vintage scene featuring an Edwardian dining room.  If you’re into historical roleplay or just love that era of design, this post will be of particular interest.

The Edwardian era ran from 1901 to 1910 and was much lighter in style than the previous Victorian era.  After the heaviness, clutter and dark colours of Victorian interiors, folks wanted something new and cheerful. Edwardian style was a breath of fresh air and featured more informal, feminine décor with the beginnings of pastel colours and floral patterns. Influences at that time were the Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts movements and Queen Anne styling. Some influential designers were Thomas Sheraton for furniture, René Lalique for glassware and Louis Comfort Tiffany for lighting.

1. Spargel & Shine on Hope 9

I’m using the downstairs section in the Mathilda Cottage. It’s a beautiful home which is quite compact at 14 by 12 metres and has an open plan ground floor with stairs to the upper floor with its tiled roof and casement windows. There’s also a porch out front. Land Impact is 142 and the Mathilda has a versatile decorator menu, so you’ll be able to change exterior and interior walls and windows to your heart’s content with a great mix of texture options. I went with lilac walls and semi-tinted windows.

Be careful where you camp!

with 9 comments

 

Be careful where you camp, especially when there’s a bunch of goat kids about! Just like us, these cute kids are partial to a bit of glamping 🙂

Goats were amongst the first animals to be tamed by man and they were being herded some nine thousand years ago. They can be taught their name and to come when called. Their life span is around that of a dog. Mother goats carry their kids for five months and they can have two to three kids per year. Kids are standing and taking their first steps within minutes of being born! Each kid has a unique call and scent, that’s how the mother recognises it from birth and not by sight. Goats are very good at climbing and have been known to climb to the tops of trees, or even dams. In their natural habitat, goats roam mountain tops and reach up as high as possible to pick out choice bits of forage around them. Like most of us, goats get depressed if they don’t have companions so are best kept in a herd. Contrary to popular opinion they are rather picky eaters. They have very sensitive lips, which they use to “mouth” things in search of clean and tasty food.

Dusk retreat

with 6 comments

 

Dusk is one of the nicest times of day to just sit and relax after a day’s work. And if you’re got a cuppa and a good book, it’s even better!

There are three stages of dusk. Civil dusk is when the geometric centre of the Sun’s disc goes 6 degrees below the horizon. The atmosphere still reflects some of the Sun’s light so the sky is bathed in reds and oranges. It’s an excellent time to take photographs of this softer, glowing sky. Nautical dusk happens when the Sun dips under the horizon by 12 degrees and it’s difficult to distinguish the sky from land or water, making it impossible for sailors to use the horizon as a navigation point. Most stars and constellations are now visible to the naked eye. Astronomical dusk is the official beginning of night time and the Sun is now 18 degrees below the horizon, however a very small portion of sunlight is still scattered across the sky so may prevent astronomers from observing some of the fainter stars and galaxies. Fascinating!
