A few days ago, Deaflegacy wrote about a trip to Calas Galadhon Park where she had a ride on it's balloon. Since there was more to the place, she went back to look at it's Christmas Pavilion. She found the place quite nice. But there was more to the area, such as the nearby skating pond and the winter scenery.
Dainial had been a live musician in Second Life up to about two years ago, then took a hiatus. Earlier this month, he ended his break with a performance at Music Island. Klaus Bereznyak was there, and had a seat among those in the audience as he played music inspired by traditional Irish folk songs.
It's that time of year again....a week from Christmas and just so damn
tired of the saccharine sickeningly sweet yule tide pablum being spoon
fed down our throats by every media outlet in the world to make sure
they get their share of the pie. It's enough to make even the most
charitable soul scream "Bah Humbug!" So on that note, it's time for the
"Twisted Christmas" special event. This event will have numerous funny
songs and parodies from mild to wild to "Oh-Em-Eff-Gee, what were they
thinking?!" There will be adult songs, so those with sensitive ears
beware. So come on over and "stick it" to the sappy side of Xmas.

Rita Mariner, who sent us a series of articles on how to get through Subnautica, recently sent us a review of a noted game that's been out for a few years: World of Tanks. Developed by Wargaming in 2010, "WoT" as it's called for short was the company's first Massive Multiplayer Online game, and remains it's most popular one. Rita has been a longtime player of the game. But in her opinion, the game has not gotten better with age.
Christmas is getting closer. And the search for winter and holiday-themed places in Second Life continues. Gemma Cleanslate found two more, 3D Republic and Harambee. 3D Republic is a place where vendors "come together to bring you a variety of items to choose from to celebrate your holiday season." Harambee is a place that helps raise funds for schools in Kenya. So what did Gemma find in the two places?
There were a number of events that took place this weekend. Saturday December 15 had the CDS Inaugural Ball (pictured above), and the Caledon Oxbridge University Christmas party. Sunday December 16 had this month's Homes For Our Troops' fundraising concert at Veterans Isle.
When Linden Lab announced their Winter Swaginator Hunt, they also stated that "Premium members will see a very special new and exclusive gift"and it would "go with your Winter Swaginator gifts." A few days ago, they announced it was available for pickup, at least for those with Premium accounts. And what is the gift? A winter cabin.
charming home-away-from-home features a scripted door for added
security, extra textures for the exterior, and other features. If you’ve
been collecting the weekly Swaginator gifts, you’ll find this cabin in
the perfect place to decorate with those gifts or give it your own
personal flair with your unique decorative eye.
It's the final day to get gift four of the Winter Swaginator Hunt. The clue was a vague one, suggesting it was somewhere around the Winter Wonderland area accessible from Portal Park. Turns out that the gift was placed just outside Winter Wonderland's entrance, at Portal Park 1 (180,112,52).
Unpacking the gift, there are four items of furniture: a bed, a bedside table, a bedside table with books, and a table lamp.
Check the Linden Blog tomorrow for the fifth gift in the Winter Swaginator Hunt, and the last one for free players. Premium accounts get one more gift.

If anyone needs to take Flamingo Ave. East, don't bother, traffic is officially halted from the start of Mission and ends at Venetia. We're not entirely sure, but... there's been a massive..... object that's crashed into the Galleria. We're doing our best to sort it, but please, to avoid delays, simply go all the way around to Bayside Drive or Palm Drive.
Group chatter didn't reveal much. Two people stated besides the police, the FBI has gotten involved. But no one would would say a thing about what the craft was, except perhaps the person in charge of the community's Twitter page. Traffic has been halted from the start of Mission to Venetia, as authorities investigate a vehicle crash in the side of the Galleria. Expect delays. ⌿⍀⟒⌿⏃⍀⟒ ⊬⍜⎍⍀⌇⟒⌰⎐⟒⌇ #SecondLife #UFO #Second_Life
So somebody called this craft a "UFO." What the strange symbols in the tweet, or those in the tweet of this week's club events mean, or if they have anything to do with the UFO or the strange markings on the streets is unknown.
Greetings, all! The Caledon Oxbridge Universities Christmas Winter fundraiser will be on the 15 th of December!
On the 15th we will have two dances, at 1 p.m. SLT and at 7 p.m. SLT. Ms Cynthia Farshore will be our DJ at both events. We will have random prizes given out at both events. I do hope you can join us as we have 2 hours of music at each event.
More may be added as get closer to the event. Feel free to join us at our fundraiser build constructed by Star for our use. Land and prims donated by Caledonian nights.
Both the main event build and Christmas Park will have donation coins to make it easy to support Caledon Oxbridge, which exists because of public donations that pay its costs.
I have set up for you this year a small park for your enjoyment. It has the Christmas train with multiple sit poses as well as the Christmas Carousel, and along the back of the park are plenty of photo opportunities. You can sit Rudolph, kiss a snowman, stand with carolers, and many more scenes to take your picture in,
Ms Stereo Nacht has created a Christmas tree decorating contest, message her for details if interested.
Ms Cynthia Farshore is Duchess of Caledon Downs. She has set up Downs as a great place to explore. She has trails, boating, and has several builds for your enjoyment. She has included a Christmas themed build for you to explore. Here is the landmark to access it. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Caledon%20Downs/200/114/44

In the past, the Newser did a number of stories on Aero Pines Park. This park area had a number of activities, most noted for it's nature trails and horseback riding. But it also had yearly parties and festivals, in addition to it's 9/11 firemen tribute. But earlier this year, the park closed down. Recently, I had a chat with it's former owner Cindy Bolero, and she explained what happened.
The noted TIME magazine recently issued it's annual "Man of the Year"
edition, as it has for decades, the person whom it feels made the
biggest impact in news events for the past year. It's not always a man,
as women have won it. It's not always a good guy, as it's been awarded
to dictators. Sometimes it's awarded to a group of people, as it was
this year when it was awarded to a number of journalists whom have dealt with persecution, and in once case death, at the hands of authoritarian governments. Sometimes the choice stirs controversy, such as one year when it was awarded to "The Computer," and at other times when it was awarded to someone whom had obviously made the news for destruction and death.
So whom was the biggest newsmaker over the past year in Second Life? What man, woman, group of people, or even thing, made the most news here?
