London City 8th Birthday




It was the best Michaelmas ever at Lala's last night.  It would be as it's the first time we've ever celebrated it.  But that's besides the point!

Madame Bailey had pulled out all the stops with a deluxe buffet featuring potted meat sandwiches (with the crusts cut off), crab paste and primula cheese squirted on Ritz crackers.

The music was a sort of spiritual disco and everyone had a great time.

London City is celebrating its 8th Birthday today at 12pm SL time (8pm UK) with a brand new 2 hour concert featuring many of the most famous 70s and 80s stars of all time.

On Sunday its Bailey's Bizarre Jumble Sale (Yard Sale) where its your chance to purchase pre-loved clothing, accessories and hair, and if you missed the Michaelmas buffet last night, don't worry, there will be left-overs available at the Jumble Sale.  The sandwiches will still be fresh as a daisy as Bailey will run her steam iron over them before the gates open.

Don't forget its "Best in Bailey" at Substation on Sunday evening. Wear the items you bought at the Jumble sale.

Goodness what a busy weekend.

Refreshing the voice list



Isn't it annoying when you are chatting on SL voice and want to turn someone up or down, only to find that they are completely missing from the voice list?

What a lot of people do at that point is relog, but there is no need, with this neat little trick of refreshing the voice list, courtesy of going into voice morphing preview.

Your interface might look different but this works on all viewers.

Check out this 30 second tutorial to see how...

Bailey's Jumble Sale and Bizarre



Years ago in Second Life, Yard Sales were a popular weekend activity.  As a resident progressed through their game, they would sell off their transferable items cheaply, by re-boxing them and placing them on their land.

The guests would purchase the boxes, then use the 'take' command to place them in their inventory for their own use and pleasure.

It was great fun, terribly time consuming for the person selling the items, but a wonderful Jumble Sale atmosphere or rummaging was had by all.

So imagine how distressed we all were to hear that Madame Bailey (Bailey Saxmundham), who has donkeys years worth of old clothing, was just about to delete all her old glam hairdo's and frocks, and send them off to the great skip in the sky for all time.

We have pleaded with Madame Bailey to hold a church Bizarre at her house next weekend and to box up all her transferable tat for sale.  This is a lot of work for her and she is reluctant to do it unless many people attend.

To show your support, we invite you to contact her and pledge the 10L admission fee into Saxmundham Mansion (5L to the unwaged) next Sunday (UK day time) and come and rummage around her old undies for some great bargains.

Lemonade and Ginger cake will be available on the day.   We'll keep you posted about this event!


Trash or Treasure?



Some new wonderful items have been added to the litter bin located outside Freebie Megastore in http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/88/204/23
London City.

They include and empty disposable lighter (always handy for when someone you don't like asks for a light).

An uglies paper bag (in case your body looks better than your face) and a wearable TeePee for those nights when you are too drunk to stagger home.

Happy hunting!  and don't forget there are over 100 items to collect, and at random intervals, some cash too!  Just walk in to the litter bin and you will receive your reward!

Oktobefest Hangover



It was a sensational event at Lala's last night for Oktoberfest.  The drinks were flowing, the running buffet was finger-licking good, and Madame Bailey going round on the turntable after a few gins was the highlight of the night.




If you enjoyed Lala's last night, then next Friday is a true spectacular for you as Lala's holds a special Michaelmas Day Event with a full sit-down meal, dinner and a dance!
