Queen Corgi’s Kitchen

with 10 comments

 

We all know that Queen Elizabeth II keeps corgi dogs, she’s very fond of them.  When I see a corgi, I always make that connection and I picture a troupe of corgi dogs trotting along merrily by the side of the Queen as she goes for a walk.  So, here’s my fantasy about one of the Queen’s royal dogs who’s lucky enough to have her own kitchen!

Go Wild in the Country

with 5 comments

Having fun in the desert and being very lazy!

My pa was a geologist and so anything to do with Earth Science has always fascinated me.  The Camp Steelhead Hot Springs came with this explanation of the landscape and how it formed over millennia.  So interesting I included it here. Hope you enjoy it, too!

*~*~*

“The Great Basin Desert stretches from Utah into Idaho, Nevada, California, Colorado and Arizona. It is the largest desert in the U.S. covering an expanse of about 190,000 square miles. In Arizona this desert connects with the Sonoran and Mojave deserts, the only two other deserts in the U.S.

The region was once host to a large inland sea that has filled and dried up twice during our geological history leaving behind large valleys running north and south as small lakes vanished leaving behind salt crust or hard-pan. The flat area of clay, silt, or sand encrusted with salt that forms is known as a Playa. The runoff from the region is what created the Grand Canyon.

After the rock hardened and began to erode, compressed veins of salt threaded between hard sandstone, leaving behind monumental sandstone fins. These fins now exposed formed magnificent formations blended with colours formed during vastly varying times of our earth’s history. Red Sandstone, known as Navajo Sandstone was formed during an oxygen environment and therefore is red from iron oxide while yellow sandstone was formed prior when the planet was saturated with carbon dioxide.

Now exposed to the elements of wind, water and dirt, this soft rock took on amazing and unique shapes, colours and textures. Host to many national parks and once the home of the Anastasia Indians, you can reference:

• Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument
• Capitol Reef National Park
• Arches National Monument
• Canyonlands National Monument
• Glen Canyon National Recreational Area”

This is a new gacha collection exclusive for Man Cave. There are 2 Rares and 6 commons. Permissions are Modify & Transfer so the 4×4’s can be used by Adult and Kid Avatars. Drive them or use them as décor!
I was using the “Military 4×4 – Desert” – LI 19 – drive it and reverse it – it’s an SL® vehicle and great fun! You can also adjust the driving animation for position.

Little Branch

2.  Salacity, currently at The Boardwalk Event
Salacity on Marketplace
And now you know where I got the hamburgers from! Zesty’s Dairy Bar is a full-size building, highly detailed and contextually accurate, styled after a dairy bar/snack shack. It is non-functional as a building, serving only as décor or a backdrop. At only LI 5, it’s an easy way to add zest to your landscape.
Salacity – Zesty’s Dairy Bar – LI 5 – Decor piece – the original comes with a litter bin at the front which you can detach.

3. Camp Steelhead, currently at The Boardwalk Event
The Camp Steelhead Hot Springs is a composite of Designer Chelsea’s experiences having lived the region for much of her life. She combined elements indicative of the American West while capturing the feel as much as the sights.
The pack also includes textures so you can add to your ground piece, make an alternative texture Ice Chest and use a screen background!
Camp Steelhead Hot Springs Wall Rock – LI 6
Camp Steelhead Hot Springs Spire Rock – LI 6
Camp Steelhead Hot Springs Balance Rock – LI 4
Camp Steelhead Hot Springs – LI 30 – animated water

Also includes the Steelhead Ice Chest – LI 5
Steelhead Kiosk – Hot Springs – LI 1
Camp Steelhead Hot Springs Warning Sign – LI 1

What you can’t see in my picture because it’s close-up, is that the rock on the right side is a water spout, it makes a spectacular scene! I’m interested in this set for landscaping but it also has an extensive Adult animation menu which you need to check out at the Event as I have a strictly PG blog here.  Otherwise, there’s Bathe, Sit and Cuddles Menus with Adjust & Swap facilities. There’s also a Utilities Menu that controls lights, glow and environmental factors. Well worth the price!
