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 .

I have new neighbors and if you know me.. well then you know that I am even nosy who are my new neighbors. Normally then I went to the new neighbor parcel to say “Hello, I am your neighbor! How do you do?”. :)
Well, this is the way how I meet peoples around my own Parcel and this is working well. In my opinion it is better to know neighbors as it can get a nice friendship sometimes. And with sometimes I do mean thats almost safe.
So when I noticed my new neighbors, I went over there and said “Hello”. They was very friendly and did welcome me. We talked abour neighborship and soon I asked whats there Project. Even if I did notice already, they told me it will be a club. They said I should come to an event if I like.
So I did.. another day I had a lot of yellow points on the Radar and I was sure they hold an Event. I went over there again and a DJ was spinning and a crowd had fun and nice talk. I did feel like I am at home, very fast.
If you think now “Oh noes.. Miyo is writing about another new Club again!”, then you are wrong. In my opinion this Club is a bit differend. I think there focus is more on “talk together”, play together” and “meet each other”. Which means we talked.. but very special was that we played a game. More precisely,… We played many rounds Trivia. Trivia is fun you know? Not that you only answer some questions if you can.. no,.. along the way you become acquainted with each other. For me it wasnt easy as the questions was in english and was focusing more on american general knowledge. But at least there was also a lot of general knowledge from all around the world. Questions about geographicals.. and many others. So I was able to answer some of these questions and even if I was right, i´ve got some L$. But I didnt care about the L$ and I think others didnt to as the bottom line is to play together and having a great time. And yes I think we had! It was fun!
OK but let me tell you some Details and where you can find the Club. The Club is called Two Worlds. After asking them what kind of music they are related to, they told me that they play a wide range and arent related to anything special. They told me they play this and that depending on the Event and I think this is ok. I really suggest to stop by one day as it seems fun to meet the peoples there.

I hope to see you there some day as I will stop by sometimes too. And I hope this article was interesting for you. :)
Mistletoe Ethaniel released the latest Lionheart Times. This is a Newspaper about Second Life, the Lionheart Estates and the Lionheart Community. You will find an Article about the coming soon Oktoberfest, Halloween and Winter Carnival in Second Life. You also will find a great Article for Merchants called “Why Customers Leave Your Shop in the first two Minutes” and much more.
So I strongly suggest to read this Newspaper:
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:
Today I went to the Lionheart Town Hall Meeting. It was funny to see all the peoples from the Lionheart Estates again. We shared some Informations and News. It was very intresting. One of our Topics was that Linden Lab is working on Screennames. This means that we soon maybe can change the Name of our Avatar which appears to others Inworld. But this doesnt mean the Accountname itselfs. Just the Name which is over our all Head. We did discuss this. Many peoples worried about this News as some peoples and me too believe this could be abused by some Peoples. Griefers could immitade Names of others and Newbies could fall into this trap. Or if you did build a big Business in Second Life, someone could describe them as you, and this could result in further Problems. If it is possible to copy others Names, its sure that there is a Reason to worry about.
But this wasnt the only Topic we had. As always we had a nice round for Asnwers, Questions and Suggestions. I made the suggestion that the Estate should have an own Sandbox for Estate Members only. It could be a nice spot to meet each other or maybe working on shared Projects. We wouldn´t have Lag like in Open-Sandboxes and Peoples with smaller Parcels could work on bigger Objects and Projects. Indeed we wouldn´t have the Problem with Griefers as it would grands access only to Peoples who live on this Estate. I noticed that many Peoples liked the Idea. They came with additional thoughts on that. At least our Estate Manager said that this is a nice Idea but he need to think about it. I think it was about the realization. Indeed it cost many Prims and many Space so the realization would also cost him more Money. But I think my suggestion arrived and lets see maybe there is still a Chance in the Future.
We had way more Topics but I cant remind them all. It was again nice to meet the Estate Manager, the Lionheart Team and all my Neighboors. After all the formal Topics we went over to usual Chat. Talked about this and that. Had fun together and so. I like it. Great to meet them all.
