#SecondLife -- Down and Out in the Big Playground

I've accumulated a lot of land in Second Life over several years. Samantha and I have a whole island, Marathon Key. In addition I have about a half-Region worth of mainland. And I can't afford to keep paying for both.

So I'm selling off vast swathes of land, including what used to be Pie Island Marina. That parcel by itself is almost a quarter-Region -- 16016 square meters. I'd prefer to sell it to someone who'd enjoy it. Otherwise I'll abandon it, and get nothing. Thing is it's in a stupendous location if you like SL boating, sailing and such. Right along a Linden water Canal. Northeast and you're up into the inland waters of Heterocera Atoll, second oldest, and prettiest, of the eight SL continents. Southwest along the canal, down through the ANWR Channel and you reach Sansara continent, the oldest mainland in Second Life, and a tremendous amount of sailing room. All from one location.

Right now, it's just a big patch of open water. But if you know Second Life, you'll see the potential there, and know water land like that ain't cheap to buy. I managed to buy it by a fluke, and I enjoyed the heck out of it for maybe a year. Just can't afford to own it anymore. (sigh)

Make me an offer.

Deadly Reservations

When a fallen angel is determined to claim Earth as his own realm, Archangel Michael has to stop him before he achieves his goal. Unable to venture to the planet caught in global warming and endless crimes, he sends his daughter, Zoe, to become a psychic detective and a hunter of fallen angels.
By day, Zoe is a lifestyle editor in a small town known as Mt. Lisle, Illinois. At night, you’ll find her deep into her agency’s investigations. If her life isn’t difficult enough with a computer filled with missing people cases, in walks Special Agent Brian Novelli informing her that she’s been recruited by the F.B.I. to hunt down a man responsible for buying small town America and murdering anyone that gets in the path of his goals. All the F.B.I. has is a name: Mathias and an artificial intelligence to assist in tracking him down.
This paranormal thriller reads like a behind-the-scenes psychic investigation in tracking Mathias and what it’s like for Zoe to work on other cases along the way. It explores telepathy, astral and physical portation, visions, angels, the use of AI’s and remote viewing.
