TodaJewle Rae and King, Corgi Pupy I purchased two corgi pups in Second Life Marketplace.  I think that is the first purchase I’ve made in three years! Since the last time I logged into Second Life, both my corgi and my best friend passed away.  The new corgis are mesh, taking up only 2 prims if standing. I can also hold them in my arms as shown here. When I do that, there is no impact on the land. Before purchasing the corgis, I had spent a couple of hours in-world just going through inventory and trying to determine what to do about my appearance. I think I’m going to have to create a new mesh avatar if I plan to do a lot of filming. I have to be cognizant of copyrights and artistic licenses. 

The big surprise came when I teleported to a premium sandbox and attempted to rez one of my resorts. I had forgotten to rez an environment first. There was no ocean or terrain for my resort to anchor to. The whole scene was quite hilarious. I’m going to have to try again the next time I log in.  

Living the Dream

September 9, 2014 ~ This morning I was reminded of one of the biggest benefits of maintaining a virtual life. We never know when we might be stricken with illness or become handicapped in such a way we are not able to physically or emotionally get out in the real world , at least not without a tremendous amount of assistance. While I was viewing a YouTube video on today’s Super Moon, this suggested video published by the Colorado Public News came up:

As you can see it depicts the use of Second Life as an educational tool as well as a therapeutic tool. Second Life can contribute to real life healing and healthy social interaction that would not otherwise be possible for some folks, ones who are often forgotten.

Zumba Dance Pack Purchase

On March 28, 2013 I purchased the Zumba Dance Pack from Henmations Slow Motion Capture Technology. My problem is that the steps must be programmed into sequences. Now that I’ve spent a few hours on this, I think it is better to buy an animation pack preloaded in a Dance HUD.
