Bento dances by Abranimations and Free Gift



Abranimations in London City now has Bento dances.
Abranimaions in London City
Abranimations has released new Bento Enabled dances.   You will need Bento hands to see all the animations, but they will also work fine on non-bento avatars (without the finger animations).


The animations are installed in a demonstration dance pad, so you can try before you buy.  Also by the exit of the store, collect your free Itchy Butt Bento animation for your AO.   Again, this works fine on non-Bento avatars, but those with Bento will see their fingers moving too!

Will he be any good?



At the weekend we posted a broad question on our voting booth, with a picture of the new President asking "Will he be any good?"

Of 145 votes, 70 said yes and 75 said no.  This is surprising in so far as every time we previously asked you who you would vote for, around 2/3rds of you chose Clinton.

This demonstrates a slight thaw in attitude towards the new administration as opinion now seems to be roughly half of you thinking he will be good and half of you thinking he will not!

Of course, it is entirely possible that the 1/3rd of you who appear to have shifted, still think Clinton would have been better, but it does demonstrate that some more people have indeed got on board with the Trump Train.

Famed Soothsayer, Madame Bailey, visits the park





The New Year got off to a flying tart today thanks to Madame Bailey and her spirits.

Multi-talented Madame Bailey was perched on her crystal ball reading fortunes for over a quarter of an hour, with some alarmingly accurate predictions, largely due to insider knowledge of her victims.


Spectators were wowed by her rare gift of the ability to laugh at other people's misfortunes. Quite a queue of punters formed, as many people observed how spooky she was.

Bailey who has long meddled with the Yakult said that today's experience left her the most fulfilled in ages, and vowed to return to do everyone else who crosses her path.  If you see Madame Bailey out and about, be sure to cross her palm with silver or the old witch will cuss you in local.
