I, like a lot of SL merchants and residents, was taken by surprise by the changes on XStreet. I have been a supporter of SLexchange, as it was originally named, and Xstreet for a long time. Zak has had some scripts and toys he has created out there for years. When I closed Wedding Elegance, I put all of my cakes out on XStreet because it was a great place to have them if someone asked about buying one. I didn't have to keep up a store but I could tell people where to buy them. I don't market the cakes and I since there are several hundred wedding cakes and mine start with W, they don't come up on the first few pages. I do not want to pay L$10 per month per item to keep an inventory on Xstreet. I can put out a vendor on the sim or at the Figure 8 Club but it's out of place and a waste of prims.

After all the news about the changes I did some research on alternate sites and I decided to post the cakes on SLAPT.ME. We now have a SLAPT.ME terminal on Hatteras and anyone can come there to add money or manage their account. The vendor box was also easy to set up and load with my inventory. The website is easy to use. It's not as refined as some of its competitors, but I am sure as it gains in popularity it will improve.
If you are interested in signing a petition about the changes to XStreet, check out They have some great resources on the issue.

Remembering on Veteran's Day

Today is Veteran's Day here in the US. I know lots of other countries have also had days to honor their veterans. I think it is important to honor the people who make such sacrifices for their country. It takes a lot of strength of character to be willing to fight and die for your country no matter what you believe politically. Thank you to everyone who is out there fighting now for our safety and freedom. Thank you to those who have lost their lives fighting so that we can be free. Hopefully, some day we will get to the point that we do not need wars and violence to settle our differences, but until then, thank you.

Cheesecake Post?

I have been playing around with pics again. I realized that my profile pic had not been updated since - all gasp in unison - April! That's like 5 years in SL time. The other night I took a bunch of pics and today I finally had some time to start playing around.

I seem to get stuck in a rut sometimes on pics, but it keeps me amused. I like to work in black in white, but sometimes my hair is so white it over powers a black and white image. This one in muted color seems to do ok. It's a bit soft and lady like, but not to loud. Anyway I will keep playing around and see what I can fix up. Have a good week everyone.

Lazy Saturday

My alter-ego in RL has to work today, so I'm taking some time to relax here in SL. I love sitting up in the greenhouse and enjoying the calm and the sounds of the fountains. I also like the wildlife, as long as she doesn't start eating all the plants. SL is great about allowing you to use all sorts of things as furniture. Our large rabbit here, Couch, is very relaxing. I don't think an extra large bunny would work well in RL as a den sofa. Keeping it clean would be an issue because she is probably a bit large for the bath tub. I don't think rabbits like water anyway. The Bunny Chow would also get expensive. I like not having to feed the den furniture. I'm glad I can enjoy such fun furniture here in SL and not having to deal with the drawbacks from RL. Have a great week everyone!

Halloween is on its way!

We have started decorating the sim for Halloween. We are having a lot of fun and some very unique ideas have come out. You need to drop by and see what is going on. Zak, he's so creative, has figured out a way to turn all of the water in the sim blood red. (He has it for sale on Xstreet if your interested.) I have put out a nice little display at Figure 8. It is sort of a reminiscence of some mass murders in history. We are finishing up some fun and creepy displays at the mall too. Hopefully we will be finished with everything in a few days. Then we will do a really killer Halloween party on the sim. Keep your eyeballs peeled for more info! Have a great week- CJ

Love is a happy Llama!

Well, or in this case and alpacka! Zak bought me this cute gift yesterday. I love the fun and fanciful things that can be found here in SL. I am going to put him in the new greenhouse. Hopefully he won't nibble on all the plants and make a mess.

Well, this is an uncomplicated post for an uncomplicated week. Sunggles - CJ
