    St Patrick’s HUNT in London

    St Patrick

    St Patrick spread clover leaves all over London

    The patron saint of Ireland came into London and dropped his clover leaves all over Hyde Park. Whatever are we to do to clean them all up? So someone on the London sims came up with a brilliant idea to solve the problem – ‘I know – we’ll have a clover leaf hunt!’ This is the solution to the clover littered across the park.


    The Hunt

    Shamrocks are all over London

    Clover Shamrocks scattered all over

    A St Patrick’s Day hunt is happening at Hyde Park in London – within Second Life. The daily winner gets 50L$ and on Friday, the winner gets a big bag of gold with all sorts of goodies inside it!

    The game is simple to play, you simply click a Shamrock to get a point. As St Patrick and the Leprechauns have dropped shamrocks in plain sight all over Hyde Park, you will find them on the ground by your feet. Collected  shamrocks disappear in a poof of green smoke. They re-appear in another ten minutes, when they can then be clicked again for another point. Watch out for the special #100 point# Gold Shamrocks, these are rare and difficult to find, but worth the hunt for an extra 99 points each.

    The winner of the previous hunt gets paid when each new hunt starts. As the game is reset every day or so, the person at the top of the leader board gets paid L$50 for winning that round. A new round immediately begins when the leader-board is reset. Sunbeam5 will close the hunt at 1pm SLT (UK time 8pm) and start another immediately after. Please remember that London is just 7 hours ahead of SLT this week due to the clocks being changed in the US.

    Note: There are no shamrocks in any of the homes.

    These hunts are considered practice rounds to get to know where all the shamrocks are and to plan a route around Hyde Park. The big hunt is on St Patrick’s Day when the round is played for a grand prize consisting of a big bag of gifts. Only on St Patrick’s day, at the grand finale of the competition the 3 top winners will win a whole pile of goodies as well as cash prizes. Only the top 3 winners will each get a share of the loot.


    Happy Hunting!

    Patrick’s Pot

    An Irish Top o’ the mornin’ to you!

    Pot O’ Gold at the end of the rainbow

    As Ireland is known for Pots of Gold and Leprechauns, they have also been included in the theme for St Patrick’s Day. See if you can find a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow where you can dip in and get your own gold. If you manage to catch a Leprechaun, he will grant you three wishes to gain his release. Everyone would love to find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow so hunt for it in London.

    While on the subject of pots – how about a Pota Phadraig (Patrick’s Pot)? This is the name given to a measure of whiskey drunk on Saint Patrick’s Day. Tradition dictates that a shamrock be floated on the whiskey before drinking, hence the expression, ‘drowning the shamrock’.


    A bit of History about St Patrick

    Shamrocks were used to teach about the Holy Trinity

    With Saint Patrick’s Day approaching, everyone seems to turn a wee bit Irish. Here’s a bit of history about Saint Patrick’s Day to get you in the spirit. This day is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated internationally on March 17 of each year. People remember Saint Patrick, the most recognized patron saint of Ireland, on this day and also the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. Saint Patrick’s Day became an official feast day back in the early 17th century, and today people go to church services wearing green on this date. Ireland lifts the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol during St Patrick’s Day in Ireland, so everyone eats and drinks too much as well.


    Did Patrick use a Shamrock to Teach?

    Four leaved shamrocks are lucky

    St. Patrick holds a shamrock in a stained-glass window in St. Benin’s Church, Kilbennan, County Galway, Ireland. Ledgend says that St. Patrick taught the Irish people about the Holy Trinity by showing them the shamrock (with three-leaves). This is why the shamrock has become a symbol for St Patrick’s Day. This is a legend but no one can prove that it was a fact.

     

    Whatever the truth is – a Happy St Patrick’s Day to you and wishing you the Luck o’ the Irish too!

    It is said Saint Patrick used the three leaved Shamrock to explain the concept of the Holy Trinity, (the Father, Son and Holy Spirit), to the pagan Irish during the 5th Century. Tradition wearing of the Shamrock on Saint Patrick’s Day is traced back to the early 1700’s. So why does a ‘lucky’ clover have 4 leaves begorrah?

    Woodstock in London

    London enjoyed a whole month of ‘Music through the Ages’. Woodstock was one of the main events of the month, with musicians and DJs playing Woodstock hits for everyone. This epic tribute was in honor of the event that captured the feel of the ’60s’. London honored this with an event that was every bit as ‘Woodstock’ as the original. Hyde Park was the London in Second Life venue for this event.

    Woodstock

    Hippy Tents

     


    Woodstock Festival

    Woodstock was the brainchild of four men. Micheal Lang, Artie Kornfeld, Joel Rosenman, and John Roberts. Land had already organized and promoted the largest musical event thus far on the east coast, ‘The Miami Pop Festival’. The four men had originally envisioned a small recording studio in Woodstock, New York, but the idea evolved into the large outdoor music festival it became. Known as Woodstock, the festival actually took place 43 miles away in the township of Bethel, N.Y. Exact geography placed the site at at Max Yasgur’s dairy farm, a 600 acre piece of land just outside Bethel.

    The festival took place on the weekend of August 15, through August 18, 1969. During the off-on rainy weekend, 32 acts performed live in front of a staggering, 500,000 people. It was also the subject of the documentary movie, “Woodstock” released in 1970. Rolling Stone magazine listed the event as one of the ’50 Moments that Changed the History of Rock ‘n’ Roll’.

    Bob Dylan never appeared at Woodstock and nor did Joni Mitchell, who wrote the song ‘Woodstock’ to commemorate the event.

    Creedence Clearwater Revival was a front liner and acts like Joan Baez, Santana, Jefferson Airplane, Arlo Guthrie, and Janis Joplin, followed. This line up ensured success and brought in the crowds.

    Peace and Love


    Overflow

    Although this was a Hippy extravaganza, it was really a cynical commercial deal to make the organizers mega-bucks. Tickets sold for $18, (about $200 in 2017) and were $24 for all three days – for those who showed up at the event. A whopping 186,000 were sold beforehand and  promoters estimated approximately 200,000 people showing up at the gate. Woodstock famously became ‘a free concert’ when that estimated numbers swelled to half a million! This sudden influx of people onto this small rural area wreaked havoc on the traffic system. Law Enforcement’s only choice had to greatly relax their traffic codes and let things naturally flow until it was back to a normal state.

    Festival

    Emergency Services were essential at a large festival


    Strange Facts

    The event was unbelievably peaceful and trouble free in spite of two accidental deaths – a heroin overdose and a freak accident, when a tractor ran over a festival goer sleeping in a nearby hay field. Strangely there were also two births at the event. One in a car stuck in traffic and the other at a hospital after the delivering mother was airlifted from the festival grounds.

    Woodstock was crazy and captured the spirit of the ’60s’. Max Yasgur, who owned the land, stated that “if we join them, we can turn those adversities that are the problems of America today into a hope for a brighter and more peaceful future…” I figure at the rate we’re going, we need a Woodstock every two years.

    Sun Celebrates being 5

    Last weekend was Sun’s rezday weekend. We couldn’t let this time go by without a tribute to Sun. I’m sure many of you know Sun as she has been part of the furniture for the last 5 years.

    Sun

    Sun turns 5

    She first came to us when Jason and Destiny Keegan were here and simply stayed! It’s a great privilege for me to say that I have met her in real life and found her to be the most lovely person. She’s fun and smart, but can also be a little serious when needed. However this weekend was not a time for seriousness!

    Sun

    Rezday Party with Debs and Kandee

    Trying on her new dress from an admirer, she let her seams slip and dropped into a lovely shade of bondage black. Never having seen Sun in sheer black before I was stunned at how amazing she looked.


     


    Happy Rezday

    We all love Sun so much and everyone wanted to give her a fab special day. This is my own personal tribute to her sunny nature that we all love so much.

    After 5 years you’d think she’s be fed up of us. But shes still the life and soul of the party. Come along to London and join her in the fun. You may even bring out the wicked side of her?

    Alternative Energy

    by Alexander V. Frolov

    New Energy Technologies

    Free Energy Technologies

    Our World is ready to change because the Internet made it so. Secret technologies were hidden from people many years, but now we can see the truth in videos showing many fantastic devices. All of these videos are available on the Internet with more yet to come soon. The open Internet community provides quick exchange of news and knowledge and recognizes it’s important for humanity to progress. Free energy is one way to make progress and better lifestyles for all humanity possible.

    New Energy Technologies

    Alexander’s Knightsbridge Centre

    Future Meetings

    The topic of future meetings will be free energy technologies. What do you know about alternative energy? Free energy not only comes from Sun and wind power but from many other alternatives. Today we can provide any amount of electric power or heat without fuel, Sun or wind power… It is totally free energy. Fuel is not necessary because this energy does not require it. This idea has come to the general public at last!

    New Energy Technologies

    Nanotechnologies

    This area of science is very wide. We know Tesla’s great results in this field of research. His technologies today are reproduced with modern electronics by many authors and we can see many videos about them. There are other methods, for example, special nanorelief of surface can provide direct energy conversion of environmental heat into useful work. Hydrogen molecules can dissociate and recombine with greater heat output.

    New Energy Technologies

    New Technologies

    The clean energy generator by Victor Schauberger was a real technology in 1940 and today we can reproduce it. There are many examples of magnet motors powered by permanent magnets only.

     


     

    So, we have many interesting topics to discuss with Alexander SL,  who published New Energy Technology Russian-English magazine in 2001-2005. In 2011 Alexander wrote two books about new energy technologies and new aerospace technologies. This promises to be a very interesting discussion!

    So put the date and time into your diary today.


    NOTE: Please check these facts out for yourself. We in London have not tested them and do not know if they work.
