This sign, a riff on the Borg’s mantra,made me laugh. I always just point out the Borg dies in the end. But I laugh because where I grew up, we competed against Fertile in sports and other competitions. More amusingly, Fertile happens to be just about 25 miles from Climax, another town we competed against. When you’re in high school, such things are hilarious and even to this day, pranksters add distance to Fertile signs to the “You are Entering Climax” sign and vice versa. By the way, whoever ordered “You are entering Climax” is my hero. That sign is gone now, replaced by the much less amusing “Climax Pop. 300” sign. Not that we weren’t without our own embarrassing names. A few miles out of town, there used to be a glorious road sign, “Bullshit Valley, Next Left” That was the name of the valley. That was the sign. When I was home this summer, I saw it has been “cleaned up” and now reads, BS Valley.… Read the rest
I have too much time at my hands this week, recovering from surgery, being home, sleeping lots and thinking about the future of my blog. Lately I am fed up with the black and whites, so I am going back to colour. How’s that for a change? Also, I want to shoot more out on the grid, and not all the time on my platform and in a way, going back to basic with little to no post processing! Now I feel like shopping for another lay out as well so lets see how that is going, no? Maybe I even get to update my blog roll….. welcome to the 21st century Graz!!

Tomorrow you have the chance to really make a difference – and feed those smiles! MichaelJ Rossini and Valeri Carissa run an event per month, the charities they support through these events are Feed a smile, Relay for Life and Making Strides. An event will be run on the 17th Feb (that’s tomorrow?) to raise money for Feed A Smile. Last month I spoke to Michael about their fund-raising, I admit I am always a little hesitant to get involved due to occurrences with other charities that didn’t sit well with me.
However, when I asked Michael about receipts and how the cash got to the charity , he gave me the above photo. Look carefully at the writing on the black board – got it? – doesn’t get much clearer than that huh?!
So how does the cash get raised? Simple really – you rock up to the event and have a GREAT time – seriously its that easy. Donation boxes are all around (these go direct to the nominated charity btw) The party is truly global, in the sense that something is happening throughout the time zones – you wont miss out I promise.…

Sorry, yet again I’m probably the LAST to know of this event and it’s all over today!
Boo Hoo, having said that the fact it’s Valentine themed is probably one of the reasons I had completely missed it but if I had known that almost all if not all stalls have gifties on them you know my cold dead unromantic heart would have been over like a shot.
So far all I’ve scored is this balloon but I had litterally just TPed in, grabbed the balloon did a quick cam around the stalls and then TPed home, pulled 2 poses, 2 snaps and 15 mins later VOILA.
Again it’s the last day and there is LOTS of stuff to grab so I just didn’t have a time to start grabbing. This maybe a Valentine themed event but I know it well as the stalls are all selling old and maybe new bargains such as 30Ld Saturdays, etc TBH not too sure on the details but again from memory lots and lots of super bargains from clothes to decor items and not forgetting all the Freebies.
Meet me there in 1,2,3…
PS I know it’s the 16th but everything is still there and often you will find these things go on for a little bit longer as people need time to pack there stuff up.…

This is a really quick post because I think that for a very limited time the group for the Ariskea is free to join and I think when I say “limited” I mean just for today. So I clicked to join and then I clicked to get this wearable and as it turns out rezzable rose.
This picture just isn’t really doing it justice, it’s beautiful, but I am in such a rush to get this out before it goes. I might try to sneak in a better picture later as it really does deserve to be shown off in all its glory. You only get 1 copy, which is also Trans so if you missed sending a gift out yesterday then this rose today will make up for that. I, of course, am keeping mine. When I get some spare time I’m going to see if I can rummage up a nice simple vase to pop it in or just have it lying around because even though it comes with a lovely pose it’s actually only 1 prim.
I’m actually logging right back in for a better look at this shop as I had spotted some landscaping items which are tempting me to spend lindens so the rose was just a really nice little treat.…
