3 Performances One Great Night

We had a wonderful day of concerts on Saturday. 

First we had Kain Scalia singing several classic opera songs among others.  A rare treat in SL.

Then we had Carah Nitely with her fun unique style and wonderful voice is that not to be missed.

Then we had Maximillion Kleene with his excellent vocal and guitar talents.

It was a bit of a adventure though due to the lag storm near the end of Carah's concert.  Max had a bit of a problem getting into the sim, but after a few minutes he did and we sailed though the storm.  Although as you can see Max had to do a bit of 'air guitar' for a few until we sailed out of the storm. ;)

If you missed these concerts fear not we have Ceci Dover and Carah Nitely back this weekend at 1 and 2pm!

ES Styles: A Fav

If you are a follower of ES Styles you will know that this formerly  was Essential Style.  You will find a wide array of clothes for men and women.  This would be a great store to do some of that Christmas shopping.  Be sure to check it out, located in the Galaxy Mall.

Hooded Sweater Red
With the cold weather upon us this is a perfect choice for a gift or for your own wardrope.  This has become one of my favorites.

Sock Monkey Pajama Set
This is just too cute.  It even has slippers and a monkey to cuddle.  I can picture a fire in the fireplace and relaxing close in my new monkey pajama set

Essential Style Royal Passion
This is the perfect dress for dancing.  The skirt flows around you while you move to the music.  And the color is divine.

King Fisher Takes me Away

What does a Cruise Director do on her day off?  Why go fishing on my boat the King Fisher, of course.  I had alot of fun fishing and taking pics.  Especially, the pic of the King Fisher and the Galaxy gunning their engines.  Hehe.. 

Seriously the King Fisher is a great boat.  Seats 5, has a cabin with table and seats, galley  and a bed.  Some of the other features include working water lights, working spotlight, Navigational lights controlled by the 12 v DC Panel.  If you are looking for a boat you might want to take a look at this one.  I know it is one of my favorites.
Length 30 M

There Be Whales Here!

Yes the Galaxy has a new lady in our crew.  A Orca whale has joined us.  She is great fun to watch, listen to and ride.  She is located just off  the Fishing Gangway.  Stop by and say hello, I am sure she will enjoy your visit.  Hmmm now to find a xxxxxx uniform for her. ( Smiles)

In Forward just of the starboard bow (right side)  are three very frisky, fun loving dolphins.  They seem to be enjoying playing in our wake.  Take a few moments, sit in the Boiler Room, relax  and watch our threesome play.
The bikini that is being worn in these pics  can be found at  CNUK in the SS Galaxy Mall.

LL Updates and we run for cover!

Linden Lab is doing a lot of updates this week.  And you may have noticed sim crossings are particularly bad as of late.  This is one reason for the lack of races on the Galaxy currently.  While LL is now working on the issue, however it will involve some large updates this week which means wide spread issues across the grid.

I know The Galaxy has experienced more general sim performance issues in the past few days.  And we will continue doing restarts as required to help mitigate this issue, however we may still have some performance issues that can't be helped.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

On a good note you might have noticed that LL has released a User Interface update to their latest viewer.  It removes the sidebar and gives a customizable list of buttons, which can be arranged to your liking on both sides of the screen and on the bottom.  The secret is to right click on a button and select edit toolbar then a window pops up.  While that is up you can drag and drop any button to the window to get rid of it or drag one out and add it to the tool bar of your choice.

You can also arrange the current ones to the configuration you like best.  And if you right click on the tool bar there is a option to show the labels or not.  It is a vast improvement in my opinion over the old sidebar interface as each button opens a window instead of the sidebar.

LL's blog post regarding the viewer update is at

Today we take a look at CNUK :)

Formal Affair is Chic and stylish, perfect for the SL working lady.  The jacket could also be worn with a pair of jeans or black pants, with a turtleneck sweater...very versatile.

Winter Warmth is complete outfit with boots, jeans, coat, scarf and hat.  Face it the winter weather is closing in on us.  What fun to wear this and build a snowman with someone you care about.

Chic in Burberry is one of my favorite slack outfits.  With the jacket, pants and boots in the same package, you can't go wrong.   Very chic and very wow.

Dolly Red should be your next swimsuit.  It is fun, perky and sexy.  
How can you go wrong?  
And if you wear it to the Galaxy Pool , Mr Walrus will give you a hug.  (smiles)

Camo Bikini is the bikini to wear when you want to make a impression.  
It is sexy with a capital S.
