Bay City Celebrated its Fifth Year
BAY CITY, SL (1st May, 2013) - In May of 2008 the Linden Department of Public Works unveiled its first project, the themed city area on the Second Life™ Mainland known as Bay City. Now, as Bay City turns five, its community invites everyone to join us in celebrating this milestone.
Anniversary celebrations kicked off at noon on Sunday, the 19th of May, with a parade lineup at the bandshell in Bay City - Harwich. The parade will made its way down Route 66 and concluded at the Bay City Fairgrounds in the North Channel region.
A live concert kicked off at the Fairgrounds, and featured Christov Kohnke, CelticMaidenWarrior Lancaster, and RoseDrop Rust, and including GoSpeed Racer of KONA Stream providing music leading into the event.
We had a big crowd of Second Life residents participating. Celebration goods were available at the Bay City Community Center, and there were numerous people along the route cheering on participants.
*Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab™ and home to the Bay City Alliance. The Bay City Alliance was founded in 2008 to promote the Bay City regions of Second Life™ and provide a venue for Bay City Residents and other interested parties to socialize and network. It is now the largest Bay City group, and home to most Residents of Bay City.*
A BIG thanks to all those that helped make this year’s celebration a BIG success….

Security Breach at Post
An unknown assailant wickedly vandalized the Post office last weekISH by defaming the pictures of our oh so-so very refined Post staffers. Sadly, we had to take drastic measures and totally randomly rezz security cameras around the Hyperbole Tower where the Post is now located. Don’t let this happen to you!
Editors Note: Uccie… you forgot the picture of our Patron of the pArts, Roc Plutonium… better luck next time ;D
Weather or Not?!?
-and now for my singing pleasure…..
You saw me rezzing at home
Without a stream in my heart
Clouded, without a shape of my own
You know just what I had logged for
You read my updated blog for
Someone I really could alt for
And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one I ever could make LOLz
The newbie shouted please adore me
And when I looked to the Moon it turned to gold
Breaking Breaking Breaking!!! Seriously? YES!

In the Know…
In 2008, Discover magazine calculated that, if every bit of information stored in a chip comprises 40,000 electrons, the total weight of all the information flowing across the internet – books, music, photographs, emails, orders, porn, spam – is two millionths of an ounce – about the same as a grain of sand. -http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/qi/8419186/QI-Quite-interesting-facts-about-the-Internet.html
