I had a conversation with a friend while I was grid jumping some (several…) weeks ago. Maybee not all ppl know that we can talk to friends in other grids while grid jumping.
And if you have an account in OSgrid you can sometimes even get a home in some of the smaller grids keeping your avie and inventory from Osgrid. So I had just jumped from OsGrid to Metropolis when I got this Im from a friend who lives in yet another world (lets call it Xgrid):
(my friend wanted to be anonymous in this conversation).
- Friend: Hello! Turns out your name is lit up on my Friends list in “Xgrid”. Does that mean you are here? Or you are somewhere else?
- Mera.Kranfel: Im in Metropolis
- Friend: so which account are you using right now?
- Mera.Kranfel: OsGrid
- Friend: let me log my OSgrid account on
“Friend” is Online
- Mera Kranfel: Hi
- Friend: Hello!
- Mera Kranfel: so I have 2 “Mr Friend” now :D
- Friend: Think of the possibilities!
- Mera Kranfel: :}
- Friend: yeah, well you can tell that other “Friend” – i know what he’s saying about me behind my back
- Mera.Kranfel: so u are listening in on us? D:
- Friend: well..it wasn’t intentional
- Mera.Kranfel: stalking yourself? uh huuu
- Friend: sorry, lol
- Mera.Kranfel: that Is creepy indeed
- Friend: it’s very weird, lol
- Friend: i’m trying to think of what it compares to…but i can’t, lol
- Mera.Kranfel: u just invented it
- Friend: Dueling “Friend” or Stereo “Friend”
- Mera.Kranfel: u make me totally confused man :)))
- Friend: and you thought one of me was a handful :)
- Mera.Kranfel: this is how you get the ladies on their back? bah
- Mera.Kranfel: spin them around til they are totally confused
- Friend: actually i never tried it this way before
- Mera.Kranfel: hahaahah
- Mera.Kranfel: so im the first victim, what an honour
- Friend: i’m going to log this account out before other people start IMing me…cuz I’m supposed to be on XX grid,
- Friend: and i’m confusing myself now
- Mera.Kranfel: ya u do that *spanks “Friend”*
Pic: my home, obviously, but in which grid? :}

Winter has hit Midsommar inWorldz. The snow is falling constantly and the ground is already covered in white, cold, beautyful snow. When I log in and see the snow and my lamp post, I get the same feeling as when I was a kid and read “The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe“. Four kids are playing in a wardrobe and suddenly they enter another world, covered in snow and ruled by a cruel witch.
It was magic in that wardrobe, the same feeling of magic I still get in Virtual worlds. It´s my own fairytale <3

The goal for Toys for Tots is to collect christmas presents to children who has not have such a good start (mildly speaking). In such cases a christmas gift can be the most important thing in the world. And the feeling that there is people out there who cares.
From Toys for Tots homepage:
“The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted”. - http://www.toysfortots.org/Default.aspx
This year for Toys for Tots ABC will be releasing a new breed the Rocky Mountain Horse:
Toys for Tots is hosting a Breedables Fair & Expo, filled with many amazing SL creators and entertainment. It only takes 500L$ to provide a child with a toy for Christmas. This is the 5th year that the Toys for Tots organization have been active within Second Life. Toys for Tots have been providing children with toys since 1947 and have been run by the United States Marine Core since its beginnings.
The Expo sims will open at 12:00pm SLT November 20th and will close at 10:00pm SLT on November 24th.
