It is important to say “Thank You” Everything that appears in front of you is all material for you to improve yourself, whether its food, people, or things. Learn to accept everything whether it is something you like or not.

In PL we learn that everything happens for a reason. It is how we accept what happens, our attitude, and the steps we take to deal with the opportunities offered, . Change begins within ourselves.

SL > Second Life is a virtual platform out of California, Linden Labs.
I was drawn to the outdoors today. we are fortunate to live where we can enjoy a huge expanse of open countryside, and the ocean. I really needed a break from the news coverage of the unrest and disrespect for human diversity. Fortunately I do have a place to escape.
The music is loud and we are rocking. Rose in the middle, Yume on the right and yours truly on the left. We are at Tango’s a club that offers a variety of music, depending on the evening and the DJs theme.If you are virtual traveller, this is your ticket to ride. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Larius%20River/21/223/15 Dj. Yume takes the stage on Wednesday evenings and Fridays 7 pm SL time.
There obviously a lot of choices in Second Life.. Silver works at Smokestack, DJing there on Mondays.. for R & R when we want time out.. we visit Tango’s.. the ambience, and friends there make for a great evening of fun.
Usually entertainment and SL news is in my other blog https://virtualnws8.ca/ yes why not… this blog is relatively new, many of you have been following me now through my adventures.. It is not unlike one of my previous ones, where I blogged, the fashion, and entertainment venues of the virtual worlds.. Music makes the world go round. Like the individuals we are.. our musical choices differ too.
With the pandemic all around us, many of us spend more time in SL these days.. While Smokestack is every kind of Blues you can imagine, Tango’s offers a variety of tunes.. and the personality DJs like to throw in themes.
No one is sitting still,Yume is just rocking out the tunes, and people keep coming. Its a great night..Please keep us in mind when you next want a night out with lots of good tunes.
Earlier in the evening I was visiting with a friend when we found out it was another friend’s birthday….. a party was happening to celebrate our friend’s birthday… (hey Nick! birthday boy guess you just get to keep celebrating) You betcha A.. we got ourselves over to the party. =^_^=
Life would be plain boring without friends! We are surrounded by negativity, it is up to us to find out own way .. round and past the environment that some would cast us in.
In SL, we are from all corners of the Universe. We gather from everywhere, and simply enjoy sharing time, good music and conversation.
Find the peace/love in you and exercise it every day.
Its the doorway to countless memories of fun times spent with family and friends. At an Address you will never forget. (taken from an old hardcover found lying around on the living room floor.)
Home is trying a green bean casserole for the first time. so strange to my ears, a question mark for my pallet.. a green bean casserole !!!! I couldn’t picture it at all. Remember I grew up with chopsticks and rice. My taste buds had nothing to compare the words to my previous experiences.
Here you go… I bought a bag of fresh green beans from Costco. They come with the ends cut off already. Fresh green beans, used almost half the bag, added 1 can Cream of mushroom soup, 1 cup Milk soy sauce (I kid you not the recipe my Google Assistant pulled out for me, called for soy sauce.
Now here is a little change I had to make, the recipe called for dried fried onions. The only place I knew to source that item was an Asian market. I could not find in Walmart or regular big grocery stores.
dash of pepper…. and bake for 30 minutes. This was a Southern green bean casserole dish…. I have to confess to eating it all. ALL. Didn’t get to the accompanying servings. just ate the green beans.
I felt so uplifted by the discovering of a new taste… I picked up the book, and primed two pages. That is how I discovered the saying – Home Sweet Home.
The everyday things you do will show when it really counts. If you have a tendency to be careless about everyday matters, you cannot expect to perform well at crucial times.

Waves hello to all, – You make my life “home” because I get to share it with you all.
How many of us still remember the old diners. My friend above, has recreated this wonderful old diner, and a pizzeria that was fun to visit the other day, while two old friends caught up on how the past month or so has affected their day to day.
This is a good time to catch up with old friends, loved ones we have not had the time to visit with … or even call. Now that some of us have a bit more time on our hands.. reaching out becomes a special moment in the day.Gets us out of our own “hum drum” and interacting and renewing friendships.
You can become more attentive with prayer. Live your life with a prayerful mind so that you an be more attentive and make the people around you that much happier

PS. For those of you who follow me and visit the virtual world of Second Life, DJ Silver takes the stage today at 2 pm. SL time. If you need a train ticket, catch me inworld.https://secondlife.com/
For members of PL, there is a virtual church location in SL.
This has been a time to reconnect with friends. No matter how strange, how weird or different they are.. they are friends.. It has been a bit of everything in my world. If anything this “illness” that has befallen the world has shown me is that there is a horrific rift, or divide.. I am hearing humans from all walks of life and the hemisphere .. wanting to point a finger.
We are all human beings, as one friend stated so simply”stupidity is rampant everywhere”
We all want the same thing. Peace and Harmony in our lives. Our families, friends safe. Why is it so difficult for us to learn to, if not agree, at least listen and try understanding another “point of view” I met with a friend the other day who was “hurting”.. we commiserated by sharing “songs”. Life is what we make of it.
Remember to feed the child in you, the young adult, the artist, writer, foodie, whatever makes you happy…. What a wonderful opportunity we have been given. Time to make new friends, catch up with family and friends, or just rediscover your own likes and dislikes. Quality Time!
There are a lot of positives out there. Smile… it feels good to smile, and it catches on real quick.
Good Morning to you all. I heard this on the radio this morning on the way to the gym. Talk about a heartache. The next song was Alan Jackson, On the other hand. He tells the story of on one hand, he loves this woman, looking into her eyes, he finds himself, their kisses are like wine. He wants to stay and be her man. However, on the other hand, is a golden wedding band… etc.
Funny I knew all the words to both of the songs I’d heard, and I could relate to it .. the music was country rock/swing… I was brought back to another time and place. Wow. Was I really there. I sure was. I’ve known heart ache, longing, but I’ve never thought of anyone I’ve known as lying cheating misleading etc.
In PL we are responsible for ourselves. When I am hurting, or feel lost and alone, I ask myself, what could I have done differently, where did I go wrong. I look at why I feel this way, and for sure, the first step is admitting to the hurt, living it.. Then move on. Of course unless you like wallowing. Then by all means =^_^=
There is always hope and there is always tomorrow.
