Double Celebrations At Zorro's Tavern for Lilac's 9th Rez Day and Rasmus's Welcome Home After Treatment For Cancer

Lilac Jetaime celebrated her 9th Rez Day at Zoro's Tavern tonight!  Wulla Correia did a brilliant job at dj'ing for the party. There was also a warm celebration for Rasmus, who was finally home after receiving treatment for cancer in real life. The usual Relay for Life charity pot at Zorro's Tavern, that club owner rob Fenwitch does such a wonderful job collecting for, was donated to Rasmus tonight, so that Rasmus could pick which charity to give the money to.  Wulla decided not to take any tips for dj'ng but for everyone to add their tips to the charity pot instead!  People are so lovely!  Halfway through the evening Rob had already collected L$6800, so I expect they did really well by the end of the night.  Lilac looked beautiful in her lilac outfit for her 9th Rez Day, she danced away the evening with her friends and it was a fantastic party at Zorro's!  Happy Rez Day Lilac and our very best wishes and love to Rasmus for a speedy recovery!

Communication Theme At Zorro's Tavern Was Great Fun

DJ Janis

The club theme was 'communication' down at Zorro's Tavern tonight and SL's  brilliant DJ, Janis Short, played all the right tunes for an amazing fun evening!  The chat proved that communication is the name of the game in Second Life, as the jokes were shared between the clubbers from around the globe, making us all laugh!  Friend Ed Follet arrived as a mail box, just right for the theme, but he had to take it off to dance those famous moves he's so good at! We had a new guest tonight too, Mattie, Mattie hadn't been to Zorro's before, (welcome Mattie!);  He's from the UK and he said how hard it was describing the humour of the British classic BBC television comedy 'Only Fools and Horses' to people from other countries. 

He's right, but I bet people can spot similar types of characters to those in the series wherever they live, working hard wheeling and dealing to earn just a few bob to avoid getting a boring regular job! I hope people in the States get a chance to see some of 'Fools and Horses' on You Tube, it's pretty timeless and is still very popular in the UK with the re-runs today.  The theme was a great idea of Janis's and we all had a lovely time!  Many thanks Janis! (My apologies to Catriona and anyone else not pictured, SL camera seemed to be playing up tonight!)

Mrs W, Of Wetherby's Fashions, Has Set Up A Charity For The People Of Venezuela - Please Give Generously

It's hard to imagine how hard life is for some people, we take so much for granted, and going to the supermarket to buy our supplies is just another chore for many of us.  Just imagine though, if you arrived at your store to find people queuing out into the street waiting to get in to the shop; Then once you actually get through the doors, the shelves are bare of the vital products, simple things that were always there to purchase in the past and are now unobtainable, flour, rice, bread, milk, even toilet tissue.  What would you do? Well the people of Venezuela are having exactly this problem, through no fault of their own, and they need our help.

Inflation in Venezuela is running at 56% and crime has escalated so much that it's now a dangerous and lawless place to live.  Second Life does play an active part in finding out about things that go on in the world through the network of people who meet there.  One such lady who is making the most of this virtual world to help the people of Venezuela is Fashion Designer  Alejandra Jumanya, known to everyone as Mrs W.  Mrs W has her own fashion empire in Second Life called Wetherby's, one of the most successful businesses in the virtual world.  Mrs W is very well known for her generosity, throughout the years she has given away (nearly every day) different designer outfits as group gifts.  I have a complete wardrobe of Mrs W's beautiful fashions in my own inventory, she is a very talented lady and her fashions are exquisite. So it's not surprising that Mrs W has turned her skills to organising an SL event for some of the people of Venezuela by setting up a charity. The donations will go to her two chosen institutions in Venezuela where people really do need help.  Mrs W has gathered some brilliant designer friends who are selling their products for this very good cause.  Anyway read below what Mrs W says:

"Thank you for your interest in this Fundraiser.  We are raising funds to buy food for these two institutions located in Barquisimeto, Venezuela:

a) Hogar Sagrado Corazon de Jesus (Geriatric)
b) Hogar de NiƱos Impedidos (Home for Handicapped and Mentally Disabled Adults).

Venezuelans are facing big challenges, with hyperinflation, a minimum salary at about $12 a month, and huge shortages of food and medicine."

You can visit the charity in-world and buy the designer goods, or simply go to the sim to donate some money to help our friends in Venezuela at

Visit Mrs W's website too, where you can also donate, or find out more about what is happening in Venezuela:  I would strongly recommend that you watch the videos on that page, especially the last one called the Extreme World - Venezuela/2011 documentary. 

Please give all that you can to help the people of Venezuela and many thanks to Mrs W and the other Fashion Designers who  are doing all they can to make people's lives better in their time of great need. Here are a list of the shops at the charity site in SL:

Sashcha 's designs
