forgot to blog

Well I forgot my sign in and password it has been so long since I blogged. Have a new puppy now, Molly and she keeps me busy. Not as much time in world and certainly not much time to blog. Tranquil Cafe is still busy Sun-Thurs. and will be hopefully getting snow there soon.

Long time no blog

Many changes in Bri's world, she sold the sim Tranquil, she lost Coco and one of her best SL friends. She now rents space for the Cafe which is working out much cheaper, sure don't mind the tier date rolling around any more :) And she has Molly her new puppy to chase!

Brianna sold Tranquil

Well I did it, it was past time to sell the sim but is very sad to give up ownership and watch the places that I built with TLC be deleted. But it was the right thing to do will just have to move on and see where Brianna finds a new home.

Lost Coco

We lost Coco a week ago last Tuesday. Has been a very sad time and trying to adjust in RL strains my time in SL. Planning to head to SLCC next week and get back into swing of things I hope.

Canceled Montreal

Coco in RL had a bloat episode on Monday and had emergency surgery. I had planned on attending the Montreal music event this weekend but her health forced me to cancel. She came home yesterday and didnt move I just watched her breathe all day. Today she did walk a bit and ate some food. Hope things return to normal in both worlds soon.

Envy good bloggers

I do envy good bloggers, I keep this up on my screen and yet have an innate ability to ignore it. Have added five new performers to Cafe artist list this week. Hope to catch up with more info later :( if I don't forget.

Creating Summer

I started planting summer flowers in Tranquil last nite, all of a sudden I realized the poppies and daffodils were past gone! But had an interesting visitor who had met Nazz on another world and stopped by the Cafe to say hi. This virtual existance is amazing actually, thanks Nazz for another new friend and potential performer at the Cafe.

Free nite in SL

Two artists had conflict in rl tonite so I have the evening free until midnite when we have Beth's rezz day party. It should be bunches of fun and hope it generates plenty of lindens for a new puter for her.

Home again

Always good to be home again whether in rl or sl. Coco did wonders to the house while we were gone, completely destroyed the vertical blinds in the family room. But she gets away with such destruction cause she is such a sweetheart :)

Headed to Maine!

Brianna goes on vacation today for a week, up to Maine and a week of cleaning and preparing cottage for the summer. But it isn't a difficult task in a 275 sqft cottage:) Maybe I will write some musings by the Bay.

Tara Ball is on Today

I am a bit nervous, the Tara Ball is today, and is the first time I will stream live into SL. I have piddled with the song list every day but finally I decided to leave it alone last nite and just hope that everyone enjoys the lovely music. It of course is performed by recent artists but evokes the sound that I hope would have been in a music room of the period. Now I can just hope someone attends:)

Whatta Week

Well this has been a busy week, still trying to finetune the website, welcomed a new performer Peregrine Singh, and learned to stream from my computer. My greatest challenge now is to locate authentic music from the Civil War era and locate dances from the period for the Grand Opening of Tara - most likely to happen on Saturday, May 2 if everything falls into place!

Tranquil cafe website is up!

I can't believe that the website is up - thanks to Mark who did a fantastic job dealing with the arch procrastinator here we have ready for your viewing. It is almost as beautiful as Tranquil. My photoshop skills aren't quite as good as his but maybe I will figure out how he made his pictures have blurry edges, the ones I upload are just plain rectangles.

Big event today the Robert69 Little Tribute Concert, I am just getting nervous - wondering if I can do seven straight hours of meet and greet. Stop over if you get a minute, it is in the Commons and should be fun.

Tomorrow evening we are holding a quieter anniversary get together in the Cafe, Kiaranne Flanagan and Shannon Oherlihy will perform great folk songs for us to reminisce by. Don't miss it!

California Dreamin

I just made my reservations for SLCC in SF in August. It is sooo much fun to meet avatars in person and see behind the screen. Lots planned for Tranquil in April, a special Tribute to Robert69 Little who as rpbizzle on UTube has done videos of over 500 SL music events. Hope we raise bunches of lindens to honor his work.

Tara is under construction

Bri always has a project up her sleeve. She won the Tara mansion and now is hard pressed to find time and lindens to furnish it. It is huge and is sooo hard to find furniture and landscaping that are from the period (especially since SL is only like 6 years old ). The most fun though is thinking about the party I already know who I want to play for the opening Waylon and JohnnyJ - but at the rate I am building it will not be finished til this time next year.

Bri's Rez Day

Well my rez day is finally over and I can't milk it for any more presents :( But it was a great one, iz dovrcr started it with a great set, then MrMulti Writer performed a set of songs that I selected. My rl and sl friend Lauren Weyland then proceeded to roast me and that was a truly fun hour. The grand finale was Chester Cournyer's fireworks. He does the best in SL and it truly lit up my day.

Fricker's Mystical Performance

There are a few memorable moments in SL, those you know you will never forget, Fricker's performance at the opening of the Paradise Garden was one of those times. His music haunts you and some how it recalls times when we were a different people. Fricker I can't express enough my appreciation for your wonderful talent and the peace you brought to everyone in attendance Tuesday nite.

Gardens almost finished

The gardens have been very time-consuming and tedious. I also am easily distracted I think there is a special SL ADD that keeps me from spending too long on one task. My next project will be building the farm - that should also be fun, if you cant sell the land might as well try to grow some crops.

Superbowl Changes

The great American Superbowl has an impact even in SL. MrMulti has RL parties tonite so fortunately Kiaranne doesnt take it so seriously and will cover for him at 5:00 this evening! The challenge with so many musicians and schedules is I am continually changing the signs and notecards and events. Takes probably an hour of messing around for every hour of music but most of the time it is worth it.

New Project

Last week in FLA I visited the Morikami Japanese Garden and absolutely fell in love with the place. It inspired me to create a japanese garden in SL on some property that I just cant seem to rent, sell or give away. So watch it grow and hope it will be a place of peace and meditation for those in need.

Logins Disabled Again

Since last Thursday nite logins have been disabled every evening in SL. It is very frustrating to have an event scheduled and no one can attend or tp or support their performer with tips. But that is the nature of this world. Hope it clears up tonite or I will be stuck reading a book :)

Thinking about Spring

Is cold here in rl, about 4 degrees. This has me thinking how much longer we need to have winter in Tranquil. Not sure I can make it through the month of January cold in both worlds!

Things settling down a bit.

Now that the holidays and my rl birthday are over things are settling down I hope. The sim crashed twice yesterday apparently due to three threes - go figure. MrMulti performs tonite, last nite was fantastic with DaveSmall Finesmith and Luigi DiPrima celebrating my birthday.
