BREAKING NEWS! Lanai Jarrico Taken Down by Christmas Tree

 


12/23/2020- SLE Police Report


In a tragic turn of events at The SL Enquirer Media Center on December 23rd the beloved by some and hated by others, CEO of The SL Enquirer, Lanai Jarrico was unexpectedly laid out cold by an overly decorated Christmas Tree.  It happened early Tuesday morning as Jarrico attempted to hang one last ornament. Only time will tell how much damage was done to the tree.

According to witnesses near the scene, Miss Jarrico had a bottle of Jack Daniels in her hand. She appeared to be drunk while singing "Deck the Halls with Santa's Baaaaaa**s".  When the tree came crashing down.

Sources at SL General Hospital say, pine needle removal is underway and Lanai is expected to make a full recovery. No further comments were issued about her blood alcohol levels and drug test. However, one insider commented about a strong smell of marijuana as paramedics rushed her into the ER.

The Second Life Community can take a sigh of relief that Jarrico will survive this horrendous incident.

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

Merry Christmas from SLE & Fans 2014


MERRY CHRISTMAS 


Christmas is one of my most favorite holidays next to Valentine's Day. The showing of love from both these holidays gives me a sense of how much people in both Second Life and in the real world show they care about others. The week before Christmas is when I receive a shower of gifts and cards from friends and fans of The SL Enquirer. I'd like to share some of them with you all. 

It is great to see the creativity, time and effort put into each card and the thoughtfulness of my friends. It really brings out the Christmas Spirit.

May you all be surrounded by peace and love this Holiday Season and you ring in the new year safely.




Season's Greetings from Davvek 



Wishing you a safe and happy holiday season from Irishgent @ Seychelles Isle

Interview with a Disgruntled Elf- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…


This article is back by popular demand

Christmas is fast approaching and I wanted to interview Santa because he is this holiday’s most popular mascot. However, it seems St. Nick was upset with me and too busy trying to re-edit the naughty list. Apparently someone hacked his computer and saved a bunch of avatars from receiving lumps of coal this year.  *innocent look*


I tried to interview Mrs. Clause but she declined my offer stating that they felt I was the culprit behind the hack attack. Not having much of a choice on who else to interview, I decided to ask one of Santa’s elves who was in a barn shoveling reindeer berries into a pile and going on a verbal rampage to himself.

Interview with a Disgruntled Elf





I approached him with caution in case he had the nerve to swing that shovel at me for sneaking up on him.


Lanai: Hi there Mr. Elf, I was in the area and was wondering if I can interview you about Christmas in Second Life. Do you have some time?

Elf: Hey Lanai what are you doing here?!? First of all, my name is Jeffrey and I don’t think you should be anywhere near Santa’s house. Word around the North Pole is you got into his naughty list and did some rearranging of names.


 Last night he went on a drunken rant about how you walk around the grid like you are the queen of Second Life and snooping around doing all kinds of mischief.

Lanai: Is that so?

Jeffrey the Elf: He has been watching you for some time now and is looking for a tabloid that will interview him for a tell-all about you. From what he was saying, you have been a very naughty girl and just a heads up… he has some paparazzi shots to prove it.


Lanai: So? I’ll admit I did a couple things this year that would totally cause a riot between my FWBs, things that would make a stripper blush, cause an intervention, or make my parents cry in shame but that’s my business!  I’m grown.

Jeffrey the Elf: I have to admit that is kind of hot and I wouldn’t mind being added to your FWB list.

Lanai: oh good grief.

Jeffrey the Elf: Anyway, Santa has a special present for you since you have been so bad on top of hacking his computer. He sent me out here to round up a steaming pile just for you.

Lanai: OMG are you serious? Whatever happened to being innocent before proven guilty ? Besides that, Jolly old St. Nick was going naughty list happy on all my friends. I had to do something!

Jeffrey the Elf: Well little lady you caused some serious havoc here in the North Pole! Santa was on a budget because of his gambling and drinking problem so some avatars had to be put on the naughty list. There are not enough of us elves to make up all the presents this year.


Lanai: Why? What happened to all the elves that handled the Christmas load last year?

Jeffrey the Elf: Well *looks around* Santa is cheap. Besides that, he really sucks as a boss, treating us like sweat shop workers.  Can you believe he tried to pay us with McDonald coupons for free Sundaes and 20% off Sleigh Rides around the Clause Family Compound. To top it all off,  as a bonus, he gave us each a fruitcake! 

Aside from all that, look what he has me doing now? If I didn’t need a place to stay I would be soaking up the sun on a nude beach somewhere on the other side of the grid.

Lanai: Interesting. SO anyway Jeffrey, is there a way you can sugarcoat Santa and all the wonderful things he does for others on Christmas? I want to give my readers a pleasant Christmas article.

Jeffrey the Elf: *Sighs* Santa is one of the kindness mascots you will meet.  He’s always jolly and…

Lanai: Ok nvm. That’s enough fluff.


Jeffrey the Elf: SO Lanai, how would you like this gift delivered?





Lanai: Ummm… send it to 945 Battery Street
San Francisco, CA 94111 C/O: Linden Lab









Merry Christmas SLE Fans. 

Have a Save and Happy Holiday!










Special Thanks to Phil & Glossom Jonesford

Thank you all for your Holiday Wishes- The SL Enquirer



Momentum up until Christmas Day has been building up in both worlds. Second Life has been very active with shopping, events, parties, hunts, gift giving and card exchanges.  It is always an exciting time of year where we all seem to share in the spirit of the seasons. I'm grateful to be a part of this virtual world and feel blessed to know such a great community in Second Life.

Thank you all for the love and support throughout the years. We look forward to bringing you the latest news and events for more years to come.

Happy Holidays!
