It’s not often I say this but I am soooooo proud of Linden Lab’s statement against the recent EO on immigration and their stand against intolerance.
LINDEN LAB STATEMENT ON TRUMP’S EXECUTIVE ORDER ON IMMIGRATION
2017-02-02 00:00:00 UTC
We at Linden Lab are extremely disappointed in and adamantly opposed to Trump’s recent executive order on immigration. We reject racism, intolerance, and xenophobia.
We are proud to include immigrants among our leadership, colleagues, and customers, as well as our families, friends, and communities. We value diversity, compassion, and understanding, and we are proud that our products enable people to come together and form meaningful connections regardless of differences in their offline lives.
Trump’s order is counter to what we value and antithetical to American ideals. We join the many voices calling on the US government to remove this restriction as quickly as possible and to refrain from imposing additional barriers that threaten opportunities for immigrants, under-represented minorities, and women.
So for all those avis asking for politics to be kept out of SL that isn’t going to happen any time soon as SL = Life and Life = Politics.
It seems too that the visa ban has been temporarily lifted following the recent court order. The President (Emperor Tiny Fists) said this about the judgement:
“The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!” Trump said on Twitter. It is unusual for a president to attack a member of the judiciary, which is an independent arm of the U.S. government.
This will no doubt be fought in the courts through to the Supreme Court. I can only hope that justice prevails sending a message to the new President that he is merely a servant of the people and not their emperor, free to do as he pleases without the usual democratic checks and balances.
We will see.
Have a happy, prosperous and successful 2017!
I have decided to close down my Kitely store as I no longer have the time to produce more products for sale. Plus the Kitely metaverse is very different to the SL one in that there is a lot more tweaking of products required before they are ready for the Kitely Marketplace and I simply don’t have enough hours in the day to do everything!
In truth I didn’t spend much time in Kitely, either in the store, building or exploring. It’s a quiet place which doesn’t seem to have grown that much since I joined a couple of years ago.
Thanks to all my Kitely customers and you can of course still find me at the following locations in Second Life:
I’ve just released a new set of suitcases on the Marketplace and in-world for just 99L. You can see the suitcases and different fabric styles at the Woodland Multi Season Cottage, Lincoln Cove and Valley Cottage.
You get three suitcase sets designed to be used as furniture decor.
They can be used as Continue reading
I have just opened a small Christmas Grotto at the in-world store, where you will be able to see the winter/Christmas version of the popular Woodland Hut.
You can also pick up whilst you’re there; Continue reading
I am British not American but still feel shocked. Elegance, sophistication, charm, wit and intelligence leaves the White House to be replaced by what? Bigotry, hatred, misogyny, greed, corruption, viciousness and self interest.
In times like this I like to think that a picture or pictures say a thousand words.
The Firenze Classical Gazebo has finally been released and it’s free for all Group Members. The gift has already been sent out to existing group members so if you’ve missed it just join/re-join the group and then head to notices to download it.

After a very busy time in RL I have managed to carve out some time to pull together the next group gift. Yay! It’s a classically designed Gazebo with a re-sizer and you will be able to change the colour accents to match your own décor. It comes with a matching assortment of planters and roses.

It was sad to hear of another pop icon passing away with Prince’s recent departure. I hope I don’t have to do any more tributes to musical icons or anyone else this year but you never know, life can be very unpredictable. First Bowie, now Prince…. Continue reading
The Atlantis Lava Beach Cottage set now comes with its own swimming pool! This has just been added to the House Only pack and will be added to the House & full decor set very soon. The plan is then to also to add it to the other cottage in the Atlantis range giving you full choice of which one to buy. You can pick one up at the store or on the Marketplace. Continue reading
Firstly an apology to all group members. I sent the Retro Radios out to everyone with inaccessible instructions, sorry about that…. But a big thanks to those community spirited members who got in touch to let me know something was badly amiss, appreciated.
MOCO Homes’ latest release, Lincoln COVE is now available to buy at the in-world store and on the Marketplace.
I will be away from Second Life for the next few days at least with no access to pick up any SL IMs or notecards. As most IMs don’t get through in any case if you do have a customer query please see below;
- If you have a question about your new home – Please take a look at the online manuals which will answer most initial queries and are translatable
- If you need a redelivery – If you bought the cottage at the store please go to one of the terminals and follow the options to request a redelivery. If you bought it on the Marketplace please contact me by email (see below for the details)
- For everything else – please send an email or use the blog contact form
I will get back to you as soon as I can and please be patient as I will also be travelling so my access to the internet may be a little intermittent!
This month’s group gift is a set of six mesh Retro Radios for you to enjoy.
They are the updated versions of the Retro Radios I made a few years back and this is what you get: Continue reading
