TREES FOR THE HOLIDAYS: TEX’S TREE FARM – JOSH (THOMAS1 BELLIC) REPORTING.

 



Sooo..the year 2020 will certainly go down in history as one of the more “dynamic” years we have had in some time.
  Many of us look forward to stability and tradition in an unstable World.  One of the more cherished traditions, is to decorate for the Holidays. The sights and sounds of the season abound as the rough edges in life are covered with a lovely blanket of snow.  Usually, folks wait until after Thanksgiving to begin decorating for the holidays, but this year is different.  You can already see decorations springing up all over, not only in Real Life, but in SecondLife as well, as snow-covered Sims begin to carpet the grid.

I had the very real pleasure of visiting Tex’s Tree Farm last week.  Both Tex, and his partner, Summer, were up to their elbows in boxes of Christmas Decoration as they busily decorated their Sim for the holidays.  Despite this activity, they were able to carve out enough time to graciously answer my questions about their operation.

Josh (Thomas1 Bellic):    Hi Tex, Hi Summer. Thanks for inviting us back again this Winter to tour your lovely Sim.  You guys always do a great job here, and I am sure that, along with other Christmas Traditions, a visit to Tex’s Tree Farm will soon become an annual trek for many of the grid’s more discerning residents.

So then, what is the “Tex’s Tree Farm” difference that makes your place unique among the hundreds of sims on SL?

Tex Humby:  Tex's Tree Farm is unique because we are the only tree farm that you can chop down your own tree with an axe. We have created in SL a full family experience like you would have in RL cutting down your own Christmas Tree.

 

JB:  What was your inspiring “Ahh Haaa” moment when you first realized that a “chop down your own Christmas Tree” would become a reality in SL?

TH:  We knew chopping down a tree isn't new in SL with RP Sims. But we never saw anyone cutting down a Christmas Tree; So we put our heads together and found a workable solution so that Real Life experience could be brought to SL, for SL families to be able to have that same Family tradition they experience in RL.

 



JB:  I see you have a Gift shop here also?  What might the discerning shopper find in there?

TH:  Under the Tree Christmas Shop is an extension to Tex's Tree Farm. We have 100s of Christmas Gacha from the best creators Items such as Rare Christmas Trees, food to toys. Our Gacha Toy section is one the biggest Gacha toy shops in SL. The second floor are non gacha items for your home decor. We also have our Pet adoption center filled with gacha pets waiting to be adopted this yea.  And for all those that love Harry Potter we have a Magical Menagerie with an array of beasts and magical creatures. Careful! Some do bite.

 



JB:  I think I saw a guy with a streaming hot cup of coffee and a donut.  Where can a chilled tree shopper grab a bite to eat around here?

TH:  Our Deer Ridge Cafe is where you will stop after a long hard day of cutting trees. Stop by our cafe and get a warm cup of Hot Chocolate or cider. We also have several options for meals and soups to get your energy back for more shopping or ice skating.

 

JB:  How do you two figure out the division of labor here?  Which of you does what, normally?

TH:  Summer and I have been together for 6 years in this game and from that moment we became not only partners but partners in business. We both love creating. My wife Summer builds the trees and I make sure everyone can cut them down and keep the sim running smoothly. We have a great partnership in love and in business that keeps going. Every day is a new adventure in our creativity.




JB:  Do you guys design your own trees?  Or are these obtained elsewhere and brought here?

TH:  We do design our own trees. These trees are all are one of a kind.  Each year we design new ones so there are always several more trees each year for families to come and have new options each year for their family tree.

JB:  Do you operate the tree farm year-round?  Or do you do something else with the property during the off-season?

TH:   We do not. We own several other businesses so half our year is spent with upgrades or building new sims and the other half is getting ready for the Christmas season and the trees. The tree farm ends January 10th every year. That is when we put in our samplings to get ready for the next winter season. All of our other locations on the sim are open year-round.



JB:  I see you also have a lovely residential area here as well?  Can you share something about that with our readers?

TH:  We do own several rental business and Deer Ridge Cabins and Cottages is one that we have set up for that winter season.  Deer Ridge is unique and decorated for that cozy warm winter season. And we do have residents all year as well. Those are always open 

 

JB:  Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

TH:  Come and see the vast array of trees we have to offer. All our trees have decorating options which allows you to pick and choose which decorations you would like to see on each tree. Stop by the cafe for a hot drink or a hot soup to warm you back up for more shopping at Under the Christmas Tree Shop. There is so much to do and see. Start your families Christmas tradition this year at Tex's Tree Farm. The experience is waiting for you.



There you have it, Folks. The trees for sale at Tex’s Tree Farm are beautiful (especially at midnight) and are very reasonably priced. While not actually built as a “romance sim”, taking that special someone with you to select a tree for your home or business and wander the isles at the gift shop will make for a highly memorable Date Night for you both.  By selecting and cutting down your own Christmas Tree, you can continue a family tradition (or even start a new one), AND, enjoy some shopping therapy in the process.     Accomplish two things with one trip.  Sounds like a Win-Win to me.

Be there!  Aloha

JB

The Dickens Project Opens Sunday December 1st!


Second Life – The Seanchai Library is proud to announce that the doors of The Dickens Project 2019 Edition will open December 1. What follows is a month of events including storytelling, music, dance, roleplay, and the return of the "Urchins in Dickens’ London" experience. Inspired by Charles Dickens, this region recreates the Victorian world of A Christmas Carol and other beloved tales, offering a wonderful opportunity to explore and discover.



Over 60 hours of events are planned for this year's Project. Seanchai Library has expanded the information available on its website to include: region map, calendar of events, the Urchins in London experience, the Story Path Voices audio tour, information on roleplay events, "rideables", and in-region gifts. The expanded information pages will go live on Thursday, November 28th, with access to The Dickens Project opening to all residents on Sunday, December 1st at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/The%20Dickens%20Project/125/118/22




Special Blogger/Press Previews are scheduled for November 29th from noon to 2pm, and November 30th from 2-4pm. Members of the virtual media are invited to get a closer look at The Project before it officially opens. Team Dickens creators will be on hand to answer questions, and the music stream will include music and highlight various features in the region.




"The Dickens Project has really become a community. It stopped being a strictly Seanchai Library happening several years ago," said Caledonia Skytower of Seanchai Library. This year will again feature contributions from Ce Soir Arts, Radio Riel, and Innsmouth SL.  The Community Virtual Library will be providing the Resource Center and The Dickens Library, exploring the breadth and scope of the author's work. Idle Rogue Productions and Misfit Dance & Performance Art will be staging special productions for The Project. Fantasy Faire Radio will be joining the community this year, broadcasting music from Dickens Square on December 18th, and presenting an encore performance of its radio drama "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde". These are in addition to the live story reading programs which are Seanchai Library's hallmark.  




The popular "Carol Week" will return, with a section of Dickens' novella presented live each day in a "Story Tour" to the sites on the region inspired by the story. Saturday, December 21st features Fezziwig's Ball. The week culminates in The Big Read on Sunday, December 22nd at Noon.  The Big Read is a relay-style reading involving 9-12 voices in a continuous reading of "A Christmas Carol" from start to the end of it.



"There really is so much to see and do, it's hard to describe it all," added Skytower, "You really have to check out the website and then come and experience it for yourself."

‘TIS THE SEASON: HOLIDAY TRADITIONS – JOSH (THOMAS! BELLIC) REPORTING



The car door opens and out tumbles the family, swaddled in over-sized coats, scarves and mittens.  The children race into the forest of regularly spaced trees, with muffled footsteps and the crunch of compacting new-fallen snow.  “How about this one?” a young voice shouts. “Too short.” is the reply. “Here! This is it. Whatdaya think about THIS one?” “Wellll...If it weren't for that flat spot on the side there. Keep looking.”  Then finally. “Perfect! We found it. Bring the ax.” The sounds of chopping wood, dragging the tree back to the payment stand. The kids tossing back Styrofoam cups of hot chocolate. The tree is loaded atop the car, the family piles back inside, and chalk up another success in the perennial hunt for the perfect Christmas Tree.




This relic of bygone days is now available for you to experience in Second Life. Tex's Tree Farm is a one of a kind unique experience you will only find in SL.  This is a true family role play Christmas Tree Farm where you can pick and cut down your tree and take it home with you and your family.  


Bundle up and bring the loved ones. Stop by the Deer Ridge Cafe to grab a hot chocolate while breezing through the Tree farm to pick your favorite tree. Grab an ax, pick an empty tree behind the demo tree you like then chop it down.  Once it has fallen, pay for the tree and accept into your inventory. All the trees come fully decorated with a menu that allows you to pick and choose which decoration you and your family like. Then add your own special Christmas touch with those special ornaments. Once you have picked your Christmas Tree, head on over to Under the Christmas Tree to thaw out and grab those toys and special gifts. More home decor and trees to choose from as well.


Make this a family tradition you’ll cherish for years.  Head down to Tex's Tree Farm for a family experience you will never forget.


I recently had the opportunity to visit Tex and Summer Humby at Tex’s Tree Farm as they were busy gearing up for the Holiday Season - unpacking boxes of ornaments, sharpening axes, and shoveling snow off the walkways and parking lots.  I was able to get them to slow down long enough to answer a few questions. 


Josh Bellic (JB):   Tex? Tell me a little about Tex's Tree Farm.   How many years has this been in operation?


Tex Humby (TH):  My wife and I actually meet at a Christmas sim five years ago. We have been inseparable ever since. Tex's Tree farm has been in operation for four years now. It started off with just display trees that were decorations for the Christmas shop.  I am the builder and Summer is the decorator. Last year we started to build on the idea of having an original RP where anyone could come and chop down their own tree with an ax, just like you would in RL. We perfected the concept this year. Now anyone can pick a decorated tree they like, grab an ax and physically chop it down. Once the tree has fallen, you pay for the tree and it goes into your inventory. Nothing else like it in SL 


JB:   Whatever inspired you to do this in SL? Was this process part of your own Family Tradition?


TH:  Cutting down our own Christmas tree was something we always did. Every year our family would bundle up and make our way to the farm. We would pick out the perfect tree each year and my Dad would chop it down and we would bring it home to decorate. It was one of my favorite memories as a child. Today we buy a real tree from a vendor as those long ago tree farms are almost non existent.  We wanted to bring our old family tradition back into SL.



JB:  Do you build all the tree options yourself?


TH:  We decorate each tree with a rezzer concept. Now you can not only cut your own tree down but touch to get a menu to build on that tree with the decorations you want. You have an option to choose which of those decorations on that tree you would like to rez, and leave room for your own decorations as well.   Summer comes up with such original ideas with adding more and more to each tree as the years go by. Now with the new rezzer concept she has extended those trees to include things like the candy shelf and toy sleigh. I love what she comes up with and can't wait to see each tree once she is done. 


JB:  Will Tex’s Tree Farm be operated only seasonally, or do you plan to keep it open year-round?


TH:  We are open year round for anyone wishing to visit a Christmas location throughout the year. We add new trees every year and build the farm up. Next year will have have even more and it will only get bigger as the Farm has really taken off here in SL and people contact us every year asking if we will open the Farm or if the Farm will be open as they love to come back each year with their loved ones and experience the Tree Farm.


JB:  What else would you like our readers to know about either the tree farm, or the gift shop?


TH:  We would love for everyone to know that our location has so much to offer. Tex's Tree Farm experience go hand-in-hand with the shop. We built the Deer Ridge Cafe to let everyone stop and enjoy a family lunch before heading to the Tree Farm to cut your own tree. Once you have your tree, head over to Under the Tree Christmas shop for all of your Christmas Decor needs.  The first floor is dedicated to Christmas gachas and the 2nd floor to non-gacha items. We also have Georgia's Pet Adoption Center named after our third child who loves animals. The cabin is filled with gacha animals of all kinds that you can adopt and take home. 


We also have The Magical Menagerie which is a Harry Potter Themed shop chalked full of magical creatures and all things magical. We built this for our second oldest daughter who loves the odd things of the world. 


Last but not least we do have cabin rentals that have the cozy feel of winter with our multiple scene indoor decor options. They are the best cozy little cabins and cottages in SL that is snow year round for those that enjoy the feel of winter every day of the year. 


So there you have it Folks.  As you put together your list of Christmas activities this Holiday season, be sure it starts with a visit to Tex’s Tree Farm, for a memorable experience the entire family will enjoy.

Tex's Tree Farm has a great selection of Christmas Trees

    


Picking a fresh-cut Christmas tree isn't about crossing an item off your holiday to-do list. It's about breathing in the scents of fresh cut trees, sipping hot cocoa, listening to the fire crackle, and children laughing with delight as they skate around on the frozen pond. And best of all remembering Christmases gone by. 

     But this is only the start of a delightful visit to Tex’s Christmas Tree Farm. Here you will find the freshest trees of different varieties in all of Second Life. These trees are beautiful all by themselves, But for those who like to enhance the looks, we provide you packaged in the content of the tree, a “Deco Pack” of lights and baubles of different colors and styles. We even give you an animated axe for you to cut down your own tree.

    And before you leave with your beautiful tree, Make sure stop and say hi to Santa, and give him a few ideas of what wonderful things he can put under your tree. And don't forget to stop by Under the Christmas Tree Shop for all your Christmas Decorating needs and gifts.

Santa Claus : A menace to society? - Dean Lawson reporting


 
As a Second Life reporter who is concerned with human rights in the virtual world I was stunned to discover that Santa Claus has been using slave labor to manufacture and distribute his toys. That’s right, jolly old Santa has been using unpaid elf and reindeer laborers to expand his toy emporium and not one of his “employees” has declared an income for as long as Santa’s workshop has been in business.
 

 
In fact, according to his tax return, Santa Claus declares his employees as dependants and, when asked about his business practices, Kris Kringle offered no comment.
 

 
But it gets worse. Apparently this shady sweatshop mogul has been operating in the North Pole, outside the jurisdiction of any law abiding government, while using gift giving as an excuse to invade the homes of billions of families around the world. While there have been no reports of theft, I can’t imagine anything more disturbing than the thought of someone sliding down my chimney in the middle of the night, while I’m sleeping, and creeping about in search of milk and cookies.
 

 
But the truly horrific news is that jolly Saint Nick is in reality an ill tempered rage-a-holic.
 

 
When confronted about his eating habits and the bad example he sets for children, everyones beloved Papa Noel lost his cool and slugged me in the face. Now I don’t want to be the Grinch who stole Christmas, but my conscience could not allow a man of such an intemperate disposition to travel from mall to mall where he gets his jollies by allowing little children to sit on his lap.
 

 
And so it is that Santa Claus has been charged with assault and battery. For the full story I refer you to the Christmas edition of MAGE Magazine.
