Spring is just barely on it’s way here in northern Norway, with 60 cm (2 ft) of snow over the weekend slowing down the progress to almost a complete stop. We call it thawing snow… The snow that falls at the end of April, usually on top of snow that has started melting, with the result that the melting process goes faster. 60 cm is just too much on top of the 60 cm that was already there! Soon though, I will be able to enjoy a roadside lunch like this one. Soon.
There’s still 2-3 feet of snow on the ground where I live in real life. Yes, the thaw has started but spring has definitely arrived at 1307 Bird Lane in Second Life. The blackbirds are occupying the mailbox and it’s ok because we hardly ever use it anymore anyway. The plum tree outside the wall is starting to bear fruit and the car is clean inside and outside and it looks brand new again! Ok yeah, I’m really longing for spring now.

If you’re going to live in a mansion you better have THE car to boot. 777 Motors has just the thing with the  Horizon that is out now at Men Only Monthly.

You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.

The most recent addition to the Never Totally Dead collection of replicas from le Hameau de la Reine in Versailles, France, is Le Colombier. It was used as a pigeon and poultry house, and therefore not used for human lodging. I made it into a charming countryside summer house for this picture. Check out this and the rest of the beautiful collection of Hameau de la Reine builds at the Never Totally Dead mainstore!
