EMO-tions is a honey of a stop for hair.  There is a sale going on right now, there are renovations, going on, and owner Mirja Mills has put out item at 50% and other ones at a decent sales price, AND there is more.. so make our way down to her stores and take advantage of these tempting sales.

OMG the prices are amazing.. Please please please, we are hoping she will come to other grids.  SHE IS INWORLDZ but not with her complete line.

Men, the sale applies to male styles as well.

We caught up with Zen who has been holidaying abroad, to find out what she thought would be the look for the woman on the go.  She still likes the comfort and style of the Lindy Modern & Retro shoes, ( Delinda Abbott) boots worn in photo from Lindy. 
For a different look she wears the classic Felicity Shoes (Felicity Overlord)

Her dress is from the ever popular Lordiva (Java Fashion Designs) (Simone Udimo.  The owner Simone Udimo has been in business for some time, her followers are many.  Not only does she have a look that spans a multitude of fashionistas from all over the world, she keeps her line affordable.  There is a fee to join her group, but... you will recover that  many times over with the gifts she puts out for her "ladies"

Hair worn today, is from EMO-tions ... Zen was a very happy camper when we were at the site. Dedicated to her craft of looking good, she says a gal can never have enough  hairstyles.

FogBound Blues, Blue Moon Bay   guaranteed 100% Blues, good blues.  It is usually crowded, keep your scripts down


China and Q have  gotten together, Q will put out a Dinky line of clothing for China on SL at the Tiny Outpost.   this was Zen's first visit to the tiny kingdom of Sylkye Taffeta an adorable Dinky who owns and manages the Tiny Outpost.

link to Q's shop Kangaroo Fashions @ Tiny Outpost  The China Q Dinky line will be in the Kangaroo Shop.  Please take time to look around at all the wonderful and delightful shops.. If you already have a Tiny or Dinky AV, pull it out of the closet and wear it.  Remember the freedom and whimsical fun of being a Tiny, Dinky or wee one.  There is a lot to see and do.  Join the group, keep informed on the activities that a plane, ride the train. Enjoy.

You need help, you need only shout out for Sylkye or drop her an IM or note card.


Big, small everyone is welcome at Rocking the Blues the above event was also a celebration of Hawks birthday.  Hawk is the owner and designer of 


Wednesday night, is country night and you will usually find either China or Q there, since both have a strong liking for that rocking country that is played there by the one and only dj Dick Pinelli.

This was DJ Dick Pinelli at Xmas.... getting in a taste of sweet.  As if he isn't sweet enough!
Since due to technical difficuties, we are so late getting this blog out, we are going to show you some of our favourite pics from 2015.

Mr Mike String an entertainer we have yet to get over to see, he is one our to do list.  Should be on yours too. This was his lovely Xmas card this year.

The dragon from Inferno, done by the very talented Andy it is too bad that Inferno is now closed.. this dragon was a true work of art.

This lush piece of paradise is the build of Gaudin Himmel, there is so much to see, his underground fantasy world, the gardens, Victorian buildings, another must for 2016 if you have not been there yet.

 China who was going to open several shops, has decided to stay open at Spirit Nation, where she finds the ambiance more suited to her China-T line. where East meets West.

owned and operated by Squanto Thorne
􀀋China Dream and Qyhat Harbour, have opened a line of East Meets West clothing for the Dinky community.  The line  will be called China-Q and is currently in test mode. The shop will be on the wharf in Dinkyville.

The collaboration should be interesting indeed.  We attended their first initial meeting to discuss their ideas for the line.

Front and back of a pending, sport theme. that Q wants to do.  We guess only time will tell how the two personalities will work out.

Meanwhile  there are shops and homes for rent in the Dinkyville area.  For more information please contact the owner of this community Pinky Cyberstar
In closing, in the pictures of China, you were unable to see the special necklace she is always wearing now.. (gift from her one and only Jettis of course, so we will get it in here.

WE wish you all a very happy, success filled new year.  May the new year be healthy and fulfilling.

Till next time
be safe

Brand new year 2016 -Great Canadian Grid

Happy New year everyone!

You are not seeing things.  Potlatch Foggarty opened in GCG at Hot Rods Diner n Mall,  Saturday January 2.2016 at 6 pm. grid time  Potlatch is very well known in SL, he has been a known and respected entertainer there since 2008. Now, you'll find him on the GCG. He  has a new group called Potlatch People.. you can join his group and know what and where he will be.  He will be at Jen's Hot Rod Diner on Saturdays.

Potlatch is here in GCG to build Personal, Artistic, Business and Network relationships, he believes strongly that the future lies in OS Grids.  He and his partner provide streams in SL and now bring their service to GCG.
There were some great venues and parties on the GCG in December, here are some of the pictures from the events..  There are more on Flickr. visit the following link

Some of us.. just kicked back and enjoyed a quiet time, watching our friends, 
Jettis put together a swing for China to sit under the fragrant cherry blossoms..
where she could enjoy the sea air and the sound of the water cascading from a nearby water fall.

This is the start of a brand new year, and we (Great Canadian Grid) are still growing, it is a constant growth, and one that keeps the owner and his crew working at keeping we (residents) happy in our homesteads.

To this we would like to issue a gentle reminder, that many of us migrated here due to the discontent encountered living on a big over populated virtual world where "community" was not the norm.  We came and we stayed in GCG because of what we found here.

If you have been reading then notices sent out by Roddie Macchi (owner) we seem to be multiplying quickly.  With this comes certain reminders that rules are made for a reason.

The question in any growing society is how do we maintain our lifestyles, our community with the infiltration of all these unknowns, and with that influx comes the need to make room for them and what can come with "some" of the new members.

This morning there was a message about "griefing"   honestly it was a bit of a shock... Roddie explained what it is, and steps you can take to ensure it doesn't happen to you.  Please read the notices that are sent out by Roddie, there is a reason for these notices, should you not understand, or want more information, GCG has staff members who would be more then happy to help you.

Who is a staff member.. just take yourself off to the welcome area, there is a wall with staff members, their pictures and their names.

GCG is not SL and we want to keep it that way.
For us to achieve this, we all must work together, and keep the lines of communication open.  Many steps are different here, how tier is paid, how roll backs should be done, how high we can go in the sky and much more... we can not tell newcomers often enough... GCG is the greatest place, those who live here, love it.. but if you are coming to GCG, know..... we do things differently, our currency is different, how we market our products.. our preference to share when we can .i.e. put out free merchandise...  Please read the bulletins, note cards, and join our GCG groups.

DJ Nox Darkness Looks after notices and events on GCG.  Friend him, keep in touch, read his notices to find out what is happening on the grid.  Events are plenty and well advertised on the GCG, you have places to go, entertainment and music of all genres.

GCG celebrated two years, and we intend to celebrate many more.  We (residents)give/ show appreciation, and thanks, not only to the owner, Roddie, but to each other, as often as we can.  Having been in several virtual worlds, this is where we live and our home.

Land of enchanment based on the movie Avatar.  There is the main sim, a skydome, and Cassiopiea(largest space station in IW) to see.  

From Pandora, we were easily able to fly over and discover his other themes. He is also the owbner of East Coast 80's (the nite club)  check out his picks for the land marks... You will want to explore, all his other parks as well.  He is open to answering any and all of our questions.  Even explain the making of Pandora...  Bear assembled a wonderful crew of creative artists and kudos to him for acknowledging their contributions.
Next - a hidden underwater paradise!  
Where is this paradise... check creator/builder Gaudin Himmel for the land marks to his different builds.  Included is a big ballroom, that plays romantic music 24/7.. formal attire is appreciated. the floor is like a mirror you will feel like you are gliding across an endless sea.

There is a labyrinth of pathways not only above ground, but under the sea for you to explore.

Did you see the advert?

Do you know someone who needs a puppy, kitty, or polar bear this holiday season? At the Virtual Kennel Club (VKC?) we have artificially intelligent, trainable animals that can:

    ? Develop their own individual personality
    ? Learn custom commands and tricks
    ? Be petted by you and your visitors
    ? Fetch toys or other objects
    ? Greet your visitors

Come and meet them in our VKC Park at   limo to park


Each pet in the Park has a name which you can see above their head. In these instructions we'll say the pet's name is Fido, but use the pet's actual name when you give your commands.

Fido listens to any chat that begins with his name or part of his name.  Say 'Fido come' and he will come to you!  You can also just say 'fi come' and he will respond to that too.  For the remainder of the manual, I will use Fido's full name in commands, but remember you can shorten it in any command.

You tell Fido what to do by saying his name and the command you want him to do, like 'fido sit'.  Fido starts off knowing some commands, and you can teach him new ones.  Anyone can give Fido commands.

Having had one of their pets in SL we can tell you, they really are fun, entertaining, and good companions. Look at the face! It is adorable.

Welcome to the Loft Blues Club - owners Dick Pinelli and Rusty Larimore have got it all decked out for the holidays... taxi

There is a lot to see there, not only her shop but that of her pal Cherokee Bravin  (owner of Cherokee Sensations  & Bravin Homes)and the other talented designers who are marketing their items in the Welcome area.

This week while we were there, China took us on a tour of Spirit Nation, you have to watch for the wild animals that can attack in the forest areas, but aside from that.. if you are into wilderness.. you got it here.  The best person tho' to tour you around and explain what is happening is Squanto Thorne. Look him up.
