We are having a bit of a heatwave in the UK at the moment, those real life beaches have been packed with people making the most of the sun. The warm weather puts a whole new complexion on how people feel, it lifts them and makes them happy. Well we do need lifting don't we, I guess most people are fed up with the constantly depressing news and the terrible things that seem to be happening almost daily in our lives. That's why Second Life can be place to forget all our woes and have a bit of fun as we get together on line and enjoy each other's company. Summer is definitely here in SL too, HangOut owner and dj Janis Short put on a wonderful Beach Party tonight and she supplied a brilliant set of those California dreaming songs that visualise those deep azure blue skies, sparkling oceans and golden beaches. Another lovely party at the HangOut, thanks Janis!
