Batista's Restaurant and Mountain Resort - Piers Diesel Reporting

It can be hard to find a good restaurant in Second Life which offers you good service and also feels like you are experiencing fine dining. However, many of you may have heard of Batista the restaurant but not know about Batista the resort.

The owners DeAngelo Batista and Jennifer Batista were happy for me to walk around the resort and have access to areas which are private. Due to them being busy organizing 2 big parties one for 20 people and another for 50, their daughter was kind enough to show me around and  answer some of my questions.

The Jungle; a Place of Enchantment and Wonder

Begin your journey by entering through the Lion's Mouth Cave. It will prove to be one of the most relaxing, interesting, romantic sim experiences that you place your avatar’s feet upon.

There is no reality in The Jungle, only enchantment and wonder. The design was laid out with no expense or prims spared in the building of this sim. Explore and you will find yourself in awe of your surroundings.

Spotlight on SEYCHELLES ISLE- A place where Serenity, Tranquility and Prestige can be Experienced.- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

Seychelles Isle was formerly known as Irish Estates until its rebirth in September of 2013.  Created by Irishgent Resident, it has become a dream that he has made a virtual reality; a close knit sailing community where everyone knows each other and participates in one another’s events and activities.

Seychelles Isle features a collection of islands surrounded by water, coral beds and magnificent beaches created and designed by the talented Ericaanne Hastings. Together with Irishgent’s vision and her hands on approach, together they captured the essence of all that defines serenity, tranquility and Prestige.

Down and dirty Texas style with NormReynolds Genesis - Lacy Muircastle reporting ....

Let’s get down and dirty Texas style …. with NormReynolds Genesis.  Ladies for those of you who have not had the opportunity to hear this man sing, you are sadly missing out and if I were you I would make a plan to get to one of his performances asap!!  He has a voice that will melt your knickers.

Sadly for womankind he is taken by the gorgeous and equally musically talented Jade, so you will just have to perve him from the audience.

Ms. Sweethearts Pageant- Ccoursey Reporting....

Forty two women in Second Life put their best foot forward to become the next Ms. Sweethearts.  This weekend four out of the five ladies chosen through the public vote all stepped forward to compete in the Ms. Sweethearts Pageant.

 Shannon Bramlington the owner and coordinator told me each applicant had to be over thirty days old, unaffiliated with any other club in SL, and a Sweethearts group member. They had to write a small biography to give the public a glimpse of their personality and to learn about them.

Observing Memorial Day in the Real & Virtual Worlds- Silky Soulstar Reporting...

MEMORIAL DAY observances ranging from the sublime to the obviously salacious abound in Second Life; and are open to everyone from all corners of the Globe, and from every space found in our cozy little metaverse.

I’ve always found it impressive when I meet people from just about any country you can imagine, and yet they KNOW very well about my USA holidays.  Monday, May 26, 2014 is MEMORIAL DAY in the United States.  It is a day of recognition of our past and present military servicewomen and servicemen.  And it is particularly a day of remembrance for our fallen heroes, like my own Uncle and Godparent.

Although it is celebrated with a special day of observation in the U.S., I find it touching that it is also acknowledged by my global friendships.  And for that I am grateful, as well as proud.

Our Avatars exist in a metaverse, but are guided by RL people with hearts and souls.  So it is with honor, really, that I write this destination guide for the SL Enquirer about how our unique virtual world recognizes the very REAL sacrifices made by living souls, working to ultimate ends to keep peace for global citizens.

At Veterans Isle (192, 201, 23) you will find an in-world replica of the Real Life monument that reads 


   If you are looking for a great place to spend a few moments of reverence this Monday, May 26th 2014, the U.S. Military Veterans Center is a must-see destination for your teleporter.  You can also donate to the Wounded Warrior Project while you are there.

There are a host of other venues in SL well worth a visit this Memorial Day, 2014.  If no times are noted below, the event goes for the entire day.

Was your social networking account deleted because you were not a "REAL" person? Get Connected on

Many of the most popular social networking sites clearly state in their Terms of Service that you will NOT provide false information or have more than one personal account. 

Therefore, many of the avatars you see on these sites are in breach of the most common TOS guidelines. Likewise, if you disregard those TOS guidelines, you are at risk of having all the work and effort you put into building your online network erased in one regretful moment! It’s happened to many avatars from SL, and it could happen to you. 

Now there is a solution.

At, you CAN have more than one account for your alts and different grids.

When Second Life Relationships Become Real - Milae Abbot Reporting…

Relationships are complicated things, in the real world you meet someone you date them a few times, Cinema, Romantic Meal, Clubbing, Bowling and if you’re lucky it all works out and you become a steady item, a couple.

If you play your cards right you fall in love and well the rest as they say is History. Second life Relationships are quite similar except well everything happens much quicker. So what happens when the two worlds collide?

So in January 2013 I created Milae Lionheart, she was my 2nd main AV in the SL world and is now my main AV. I need to explain a little bit of background so you can understand how this unfolded.

Spotlight on ℜღŞε (scorpianrose)- Cover Artist and Relay for Life Supporter- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

ℜღŞε (scorpianrose) is a cover artist in Second Life and a Relay for Life supporter.  Music is her passion.

From a very young age her mother exposed her to various genres, playing the guitar and singing herself,  that nurtured Rose's love for singing. Rose's fondest memory is of her and her Mother singing to the guitar in their living room. Second Life gives her the ability to open up and share her passion with people from around the world.  Rose is a very shy person and suffers from a bit of stage fright. She loves the fact that Second Life gives her a chance to do what she loves in a way that brings out her confidence. The SL Enquirer sat down with Rose to learn more about her and what she does in Second Life.

Nashville Music Row: A Place to See, a Place to Hear- DoctorKaren Kanto Reporting..

Nashville Music Row is both a representation of Nashville, Tennessee and a live music venue. Nashville is, of course, home of The Grand Ole Opry music hall and mecca for country music fans and performers world-wide. 

The sim offers a guided tour carriage ride featuring Music Park, Ryman Auditorium, the Grand Ole Opry, Tootsies Orchid Lounge, The Stage, and the Bluebird Café, all rendered as closely to their RL sources as possible and accompanied by both auditory and note card information about the RL sites. Here you will find a wide menu of live performances and may even be greeted by Ms Patsy Cline (in bot form) offering you group membership and event updates.

I visited Nashville Music Row and was impressed with the build overall. Especially with how much information was available about the various sights there. Even in the middle of the night when no one was around, it was an interesting place to explore. I even found myself trying to converse with Ms Patsy Cline and ask her about the sim until I realized that she was actually a bot. :) When I brought my partner, who had been to RL Nashville several times, she said the main buildings were, in fact, very good replicas.

I had the chance to speak with Immyour Destiny, one of the builders of Nashville Music Row.

Best Formal attire for those Classy Occasions in Second Life…. By Tea Couturier.

Sometimes it can be hard to find that perfect outfit when you have an event to go to or you and your partner are heading out for a romantic night out.

Well never fear, here is a list of some lovely formal wear and where to shop for them.

SHEY - Janelle Extraordinary Gown
I love this dress. It comes with a HUD which can change the texture of the dress so that you can keep the same design but have it in different 16 colors. It is an elegant mesh gown which will look lovely for any event. There is a demo available to purchase to try before you buy it. It costs only 599L also so this is a definitely one for the closet.

Celebrating World Goth Day SL style - Lacy Muircastle reporting ....

Second Life offers everyone the opportunity to be who or what they want to be, it also offers a place in which you can belong to any group you so choose without prejudice or discrimination, basically offering those who wish to be a little different a safe haven from the harsh realities of RL.

AVIE POLL: Why Does One Log In to Second Life?- Ccoursey Reporting...

What is it you can't live without in Second Life? What makes it worth logging in day after day ?  Hmm, ever thought about it? 

 Everyone has their own reasons for logging in, whether it be to have some fun, make some extra cash on the side, or just have a bit of social interaction.  To actually enjoy and reap the benefits of Second Life I've seen time and again someone has to have a reason to log in and make the best of their Second Life, otherwise what is the point?

 I've seen too many new people log in and get bored, leaving the game and missing great experiences and opportunities Second Life has to offer.  When I first started Second Life it was my friends and photography that kept me coming back.  I may have had my hand in a few different things, but it wasn't what I was logging in for.  Times have changed things a bit, but there is still pictures and true friends with me for my journey in this virtual world.

 What do others log in for?  It isn't like we are all here for the same thing...

The Mother of Baby Products Trace Corbets- Piers Diesel Reporting...

With this past Mother’s day now behind us, the baby products industry in Second Life is still as competitive as in any business in Second Life. 

 SLE set its sights on what the parents in Second Life want and need to make sure they have a complete parenting experience and how they keep their little ones happy.

Many of us have heard  GOOCCI GOO and are aware that it is one of the leading baby brand names in Second Life but we do not know much about the creator Trace Coberts.
Trace has worked hard in building her business to what it is today and SLE thought it was time to shine our spotlight and find out a bit more about her . This interview is not only for our readers but also for her loyal customers who have supported her and have helped Trace’s business grow.

Avi Poll -- Detecting Gender Imposters in SL- Silky Soulstar Reporting…

Real life gender always seems to be a topic of hot debate, especially for those with something to hide.  But even though there are those who always say that gender just does not matter, there are times when it does without a doubt. So how do you detect the gender imposter?

First let’s send away the argument that RL gender does not matter.  Sometimes it may not, but other times it does unmistakably. Motives behind males masquerading as females can be scary enough, or even predatory in nature. Lesbian women in particular struggle with protecting their rights to congregate in a safe environment.  There is an odd and sexually-charged fascination certain men have with women in same-sex relationships.  Lesbian women need the space to fully experience and keep their relationships in a harassment-free environment.

Technology: What is the SL Go Viewer?- Jessii2009 Warrol Reporting…

If you have heard of the new SL Go viewer, then you probably have heard the negativity surrounding the launch of the project. 

The biggest gripes were the cost of the program. When SL Go was first launched, users had to purchase access via minutes. This type of pricing model was something that had not been since the early 90’s and was reminiscent of old internet dial up plans. Linden Labs and OnLive actually listened and now you can enjoy this great application for the low cost of 9.99 USD a month. So what is SL Go?

Meet Debi Palmira; Second Life’s Renowned DJ Manager- Piers Diesel Reporting...

Have you ever wanted to know what it would be like to be a music manager in Second Life?

 It can be a tough and demanding job especially when you are Debi Palmira who managers Dj’s in Second Life. I took the opportunity while she wasn’t busy to chat with her about her work and to find out a little bit about her when she isn’t busy working.

Piers: Can you tell our readers a bit about yourself?

Debi:  I am born and raised in Minnesota. Been on Second Life since Dec 2008. Music was a big part of my family's life whether it be playing an instrument (I played flute lol) to whatever was put on to listen on the stereo. So really, it's no surprise I gravitated to the music scene not long after starting SL.

Lanai celebrates 9 years in SL in style - Lacy Muircastle reporting ....

The 9th of May saw the ninth anniversary of Lanai Jarrico's rezz day into Second Life and just like the lady herself it was celebrated with great style and panache.

History of Mother's Day (May 11th): How is it observed in SL?

Today is that special day where we honor our mother’s or mum’s in my case. So how did this special day come about? The concept of Mother’s Day in the States is attributed to two different women: Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis. In 1870 Julia Ward Howe called for a special day to encourage pacifism and disarmament among women. This day was held in Boston for about 10 years. In 1907, Anna Jarvis held a private Mother’s Day celebration in memory of her mother in West Virginia. Based on this event, Anna would organize “Mother’s Day Work Clubs” to improve the stability of the area where she lived. Anna would soon launch a state wide, then a nationwide campaign to expand this concept.

Fishing in Second Life-Jessi2009 Warrol Reporting…

There are many things to do in Second Life and apparently one of those things is fishing. Yes fishing, complete with rods, fishing line, boats, and of course fish! 

A really good friend of mine, John, is a fisher in Second Life and he took the time to explain to me the various types of fishing systems from both a fisher and land owner standpoint.

We were standing in the 7Seas Area on Tribute City, which definitely did not smell “fishy”.  As John explained, “Fishing in Second Life is very similar to real life fishing, without having to actually clean the fish. There are many systems available. 7Seas, Neo Realms, Fish Hunt, Magic Fishing, and Star Fishing are the most well-known fishing systems. There is also Evo-Fishing, which I really don’t know much about”.

“Each fishing systems have their own ups and downs”, John continued. “I have fished them all. My personal favorite is Fish Hunt, but I really enjoy hosting 7Seas and Neo-Realms”. We teleported down to the main area of Tribute City, which is fishing central. I noticed buoys, vendors, and what looked like bait barrels.
