Rescued

“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat.”

My great-niece recently rescued a couple horses from a kill pen, the third generation of horse rescuers in my family. Kill pen horses are usually sold for pet food because they are considered problematic, untrainable, vicious and dangerous. They usually require a level of training most people just will not invest. In time, though, they can learn to trust and be trusted. If you want to see the evidence, see my great-grand niece cleaning this rescued horse’s hooves just two weeks into training…and the foundations for a fourth generation of rescuers begins. It was thinking about them, the work they are doing, and that two other nieces are doing, that I thought I might take this month’s house from Barnesworth for Collabor88 and set up a farm. I tinted it, one of the things I love about Barnesworth homes.

It’s Getting Hot

I decided the perfect way to start my week this Monday was to take a dip in my pool. Most people might wait until Memorial Day in the states to christen the pool but I figure my pool is exempt from such provincial traditions.

I’m sporting a new bathing suit, and I can never have enough of them. This one is actually FREE if you join the Boom Clothing company VIP group – WHICH INCREDIBLY is also free to join. Aranel Ah is back in SL full force and she’s released this as a little teaser to get you come check out her goods! I suggest you do so! Continue reading

I’ve Hired Out My Cleaning

Well despite having a weak spot for fun cleaning accessories, I was reminded that I have this delightful vacuum from my friend Kitty and decided to PUT IT TO WORK today. After all, I’ve got quite a bit to get done and I can’t be worrying about sweeping. Get to work kitty! Continue reading

She turned to the sunlight and shook her yellow head, and whispered to her neighbor: “Winter is dead.”

“She turned to the sunlight And shook her yellow head, And whispered to her neighbor: "Winter is dead.”I don’t even remember when I purchased Filter Forge®, the popular third-party companion to PhotoShop® that lets you apply fancy filters to your photos. It was long ago, maybe 2008 or 2009. Anyway, I don’t even use PhotoShop anymore as my laptop has no CD/DVD drive to allow me to install it. With materials, shadows, mesh bodies, and all the other controls we have over our raw shots, there’s no real need for PhotoShop either, except for the super fancy portraits with painted hair and so on. I still use Filter Forge from time to time for the fun of it. I just open photos directly in the software. Anyway, it’s 80% off today so I thought I would play with it and let you all know that it’s deeply discounted. Please note, that is an ordinary link with no clever code that gives me some compensation for promoting their software. I just have the basic package, the cheapest one, and it has everything I need. I don’t need to do pictures bigger than 3000 by 3000, so it’s enough for me. The filter I am using today is Retro Imaging. All the filters are free, you only buy the software. Update: By the way, don’t get stressed by the discount ending today. They run a deep discount several times a year, so if you don’t do it today, you will get another chance in the next few months.

“She turned to the sunlight And shook her yellow head, And whispered to her neighbor: "Winter is dead.”I am wearing an adorable dress and jacket from Decoy. It has a color change HUD with all sorts of options in prints and solids for the dress and matching solid colors for the jacket. The prints are inspired by Collabor88’s Greenery theme and if you get the big pack, there are some exclusive very bright, bold saturated color prints as well. That was not my mood this morning when I was snapping pictures so I went for the pastels, dreamy prints, probably because it was 3 AM and I was taking pics before I went to sleep.

Fingers Crossed

“You don't have to be a big name to do big things. Shine does not require recognition.”Bento makes me happier than I thought it would. My happiness comes from things like these poses from Gingerfish that have Bento hand movements built right in. When Bento first came out, I was dubious, afraid that more complexity would strain my already struggling computer to the breaking point. I also moaned about one more thing to learn. I dawdled. I did not rush to buy bento hands immediately. I waited hoping it would all be figured out by someone else or even just go away. But it didn’t and both Slink and Maitreya released hands optimized for Bento and my computer did not fold over in a faint. So here we are. Animators are busy adapting and creating poses that capitalize on this new expressiveness and I am wondering why I was such a grouch about it. I guess I must be getting crotchety in my old SLage.

“You don't have to be a big name to do big things. Shine does not require recognition.”I kind of fell in several sorts of love with the skirt and jacket from Emery. The Stella skirt has two options with a latte stripe or a pearl stripe. The Bastet jacket has bold lapels that give it a relaxed, casual air while being very fashion conscious. They are at Collabor88 this month and a knotted tee is also sold to accompany them. I decided to go a different way, though, and chose this top from Baiastice.

“You don't have to be a big name to do big things. Shine does not require recognition.”I stopped off at Gacha Gardens and picked up some backdrops for photos from RAMA. I love that they used materials, so the sunshine sets it ablaze.  Continue reading

The Heavenly Spheres make music for us,

The Heavenly Spheres make music for us,

The Poetry of the Spheres are on display at LEA4 – a celebration of music and poetry in a pastoral setting with lovely ancient ruins. From the description of the sim:

Legend has it that the Ancient Gods of the Greeks have abandoned this realm, but evidence of their existence can be found above, in celestial spheres. These signs and symbols, both direct and abstract, are also reflected in Gustav Holst’s 1918 orchestral suite, The Planets, Op 32.

You can explore each of the seven movements, representing the corresponding planets, by teleporting from the Olympus Island up to that particular sphere:

Mars, the Bringer of War
Venus, the Bringer of Peace
Mercury, the Winged Messenger
Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity
Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age
Uranus, the Magician
Neptune, the Mystic

There you will find a music link station for the appropriate movement – click on it to open a link to the music so you can play it on your browser while you explore. Most of the symphonic movements are less than 10 minutes long, and the symphony in entire is less than 45 minutes long.
