Yesterday I was invited to the “Howdy Neighbor Day” of the Lionheart Estates.
This is a meetings of Lionheart Residents and of course there friends! Some time ago I did write
already a blogpost about this Event which they hold often at the Lionheart Community.
You can find the Blogpost here: Lionheart´s Howdy Neighbor Day. And you can read about the Howdy Neighbor Day on lionheartsl.com.
Much grass has grown!
Yes! When you compare both pictures above (left: new auditorium Picture/ right: old auditorium Town Hall Meeting Picture).. you notice the difference. Much grass has grown! That was the first I noticed when I arrived yesterday. Well I gave up my old Parcel on Lionheart some time ago and took a Second Life brake for a while. But I am back since four days now and this is probably the reason why the first thing I noticed was the grown grass and probably also the reason why I gave this blogpost this headline. ;) Excuse me.
Howdy Neighbor Day!
If you are Resident on the Lionheart Estates, I am pretty much sure you know about this meetings. If not, it is explained easy. The thing is that the Headline of this Event explaines it already good. Anyway it is something special I must mention again and again when I attend as it is not something usual on other Estates I´ve seen.
The Howdy Neighbor Day is an good opportunity to meet and greet your Neighbor´s. Yesterday for example we hold an Introduction of Participants. It took some time but it is still essential. Second Life can be pretty anonymous sometimes. But with these Neighbor Day´s you can become acquainted with peoples around your Parcel. So when the Neighbor´s introduced them self which was for sure optional, we got Topics to talk about. Introduction of Participants usualy starts shy but ends cheered up.
So apart from get to know each other better.. we had also differend Topics and good mood.
Thats why I think it is again a Blogpost worth.
I did enjoy this Event but one or two hours later I had to go. The Eurovision Song Contest awarding of score tooks my attention then :P
But as the Howdy Neighbor Day´s usualy are hold as long as the last one goes.. I am pretty much sure the Neighbor´s who remained had fun beyond.

I did need own land to setup a home and also to work on a new idea. Want to create some shoes and well.. maybe other clothes. But first experimenting with shoes and so.
I really didnt want to build in sandbox. So I had to search land. In the past I was happy with LionheartSL. So I found there new land and I am back now. But it is really a little parcel as I work on small stuff. I didnt want a big parcel. Maybe I make some pictures next days. I did setup all my furniture and now I feel very comfy there :) Cool that I still get a bonus because I already lived there. As I said.. I take pictures of my home some day.
Today I did publish The SL Daily Ledger .
So there you will find some top Storys about Second Life which are collected via my favorite Peoples on Twitter.
Yesterdays I went to our Estate Community meeting called “Howdy Neighbor Day” on the Lionheart Virtual Estates. If you dont know about this Event.. its an event for Lionheart Residents and there friends and an opportunity to step off our land in pursuit to greet and meet each other. Socializing is the magic word and we hold already several of these meetings.
So apart from meeting each other and talk together we also plan new things. Yesteday we talked about an idea to hold an virtual Oktoberfest Event. We had already a lot of good input but it is still in planing phase i guess. But one thing you should know.. Lionheart Events are usualy very well planed and make a lot of fun. So be prepared for the Oktoberfest soon. I will keep you informated if I hear more about it and when it will start. I imagine this event could be a blast.
So I think I will write about more details soon when I know more.
I mentioned before that Cloe is now the new Chairperson for the Chamber of Commerce. You maybe did read it here: A new Chairperson for the Chamber of Commerce.
So I think because of that, yesterday she did invite us to her Party at the “Wee Little Irish Pub“. I think you can read in the Name it was an Irish Pub. We had much to talk and did listen Music. I thought the Music sounds pretty Irish so thats why I asked Cloe if this is “Irish Style Music” and she said yea you could call it so but the Moderator is subject to call it “Celtic Rock”. For me it was new but I did enjoy the Music and indeed the little Pubs atmosphere and all the friendly Guests. I had the chance to meet peoples I already know and some of Cloe´s Friends which I didnt know before.
She also told me that she has an Irish Band in Second Life and that the “Wee Little Irish Pub” is the Place where they hold Events sometimes. I was nosy and did join the Group to be informed about Events. I think I will arrive there again then and it could be that I someday write another Blogpost about it.
I also had the chance to take a “Lionheart Times” in front of the Pub. It is a Second Life Newspaper about things that happen on the Lionheart Estates. Pretty funny writen. You defenetly should take a look and read a little bit.
Ok I had again a nice day in Second Life. Sadly I was to early tired and had to leave the Party. But it was because its another timezone here in Germany. So for me it was latenight. However I was there for a while and I really did enjoy to meet them all. I think this is all I can write about it but at least I have some cool Pictures for you, take a look:
Some days ago I wrote already about the Chamber of Commerce Election Weekend on the Lionheart Estates. The Chamber of Commerce Members and the Chairmen-Candidates came together. The Candidates introduced them self and the Members asked some Questions and got many Answers. You can read more about the Election Weekend here:
Today the Lionheart Estates announced the Election Results. For the Roundup, 21 members have participated in the Elections and 3 votes were invalid (One vote per business only..). So this means there were 18 valid votes distributed as following:
- Sookie Slafford: 6 casting of Votes
- Clover Windlow: 12 casting of Votes
This means we have a new Chairperson for the Chamber of Commerce and for this reason many congratulations goes to Clover Windlow. But for sure thanks goes to both Candidates, all Members and the Lionheart Estates as well because of this exciting Weekend we had.
You can find the original Announcement on the Lionheart Website:
When it goes to virtual real estate, its often not that easy to find the right place to rent land in second life.
Why? Well my experience is that many sim owners start there business with to low prices. I mean most of them think that they could do better business then. But what is the result often? Well those virtual real estate companys dont live very long. The bad thing is that you as a business owner need land for long time. You know you share your landmarks and so and this is why its very bad if you have even and even to rent new places because the sim owner close the doors.
And this is why i want to tell you something about a second life real estate company where i rent my land.
They are called Lionheart Virtual Real Estate and i am very happy with them.
I call the titel of this post “Lionheart Virtual Real Estate Expanding Tour” because they really do expand time by time which means that there business must be good.
What i can say because of my own experience with them. They prices of land arent low.. but also not to hight. How ever if you ask me.. Its ok if the prices are a bit higher then anywhere else. On Lionheart you can see that they live longer but not only this. Those prices give you better support and Lionheart has very good support.
I could tell you a big story about it.. there are many specials. Its great there.. time by time the peoples from Lionheart but also the peoples who rent land there meet up to talk about differend news, experiences but also about problems and so. This is great because its a good way to know who are your neighboors on the sim.
This is why i know what is importend and what not on the search for good land.
I just dont want to rent land.. no i want to be sure that if i rent, the estate need to live very long otherwise i would have to search again for new land which wouldnt be effective for my business. So better to pay a bit higher tiers but get long time land and pretty good support then renting cheap land and wonder laters why the estate company get a crash.
So a long time relation is way more effective for our business. Good support makes it professional and if you addiotionaly have the chance to meet the estate assistants, owners and for sure the tenants and your neighboors, what else could be better?
All this is why my suggestions go to Lionheart Virtual Real Estate.
They did expand often last time.. they grow and get often new sims and this is for me an indicator that they have success. And this is also a sighn that they dont close the door after you did decide to rent there.
So this is also why I decide to tell you about them.
If you looking for land you should visit there homepage.
Btw. you can gather many informations on there website. many of them are pretty helpful for your decision.
