Great news to share this week is that The American Caner Society have announced that the 2019 Strides Campaign raised a very impressive grand total of $13,633 USD (a $5,000 increase over 2018). The Strides Campaign helps all those dealing with breast cancer and helps them to search for a cure.
Congratulations to all those that participated this year who have made a positive difference in this world. There were many communities in Second Life who organised their own campaigns and who participated in the general Strides campaign. All funds raised through the 2019 Strides Campaigns in Second Life are used by the American Cancer Society to contribute to breast cancer research and breast cancer patient services.
Top Strides Campaigns that raised over $2,500 include Camping for A Cure & Bikers for BOObies.
The BCA ROCKFEST & Out Shop Cancer raised more than $1,000 each.
Strides Campaigns that raised between $500 – $1,000 include Rockin’ for the Knockers, Pink Power Fest/Strides Walk, and the Tuesday Night Dance Party.
Notable campaigns who raised between $100 – $500 include Winter Is Coming, Kaiila Mahoney & the Gorean community, FABGlibber Women’s Club, Fight Like A Girl Photo Contest, Club Cathedral Dark Desires, Sanctuary Rockers, and Roos With A Dream.

On 31st October 2019 marked my 13th Rez Day in Second Life. I still can’t believe I’ve been active for 13 years now inworld. I still believe Second Life is one of the best virtual worlds out there today and that it won’t be going away anytime soon. I will be here for many more years to come.
During the past year I’ve enjoyed Second Life even more from following the new developments on the Bellisseria continent / SSP continent, flying more around the grid (planes), greeting at BURN2 2019, attending Bay City events, watching the latest Lab Gab episodes and much more.
My blog followers count has increased during the past year from 722 to 789 which is great. As of today my blog has 686, 507 hits. I hope more will continue to follow my blog in the weeks and months ahead. Since 2006 I have uploaded 27, 995 photos (280 pages) on my Flickr stream and there are now 1.5k followers now. Thanks so much! 🙂
Here is myy first snapshot of my avatar back in early November 2006. Wow so much has changed since then right ?.
Thanks to all of you who have been part of my Second Life for the past 13 years. Here’s to many more years in Second Life. Woooot!
The Burn2 Skin Burn event takes place tomorrow on Saturday 26th October 2019 in Second Life. The first burn starts at 1pm SLT and the second burn starts at 6pm SLT.
The check in opens two hours before each burn. Everyone is welcome to participate and have fun.
The Man will be burning again but this time everyone will be in their best low lag form to see it. It’s a low lag burn!.
WHY DO WE DO THIS?
We recognise that some of us may have had difficulty seeing the Man burn last Saturday – lag is a fact of life with all the partying and the range of lag generated in the sims.
Thus, we become more radically inclusive by expending a bit of communal effort and “slimming down” to just skins and system layers, It helps reduce sim lag (BURN2 sims) and also client lag (your computer’s resources and those of avatars around you).
The location will be given out via the BurningMan 2.0 group notices tomorrow and on the Burn2 blog.
Lab Gab Episode 5 airs today from 3pm SLT/PDT over on the official Second Life YouTube channel hosted by Xiola Linden and Strawberry Linden. They will be exploring some “de-frightful spots” around Second Life and sharing top Halloween themed things with some scary stories.
Here is the full blog announcement on episode 5…
Scary movie rules state that no matter what – there must always be a sequel! Xiola and Strawberry are back this week for another chilling and thrilling episode of Lab Gab – with more frightening fun and spirited excitement!
We have some de-frightful spots to explore and need your help to make sure we survive the trials of our adventures in – The Spooky Side of Second Life Returns!
We’ll also be sharing some of our top Halloween themed things and scary stories – there’s a ghost story in there somewhere!
We might need to take a trip to a lovely autumnal experience after the bone-chilling venture – good thing there are so many scenic spots for us to lighten the mood and recover after our journey into maniacal madness.
