I turned on the computer to show a friend Second Life, wanting her to see all the fabulous fashion and different styles of avatar around the sims. It is one of my favourite things to do. It is my reason for being in Second Life.
I tried several place. This is basically all I could show her, apart from my avatar.
This is my Second Life now. I want the old one back.

With all the medical advancements made over the past few decades how come no-one has come up with a better idea than the “tie in the back” hospital gown? It has not evolved to any great extent, it is exactly what it once was, the description of which involves words I am not allowed to type here.
As if it was not bad enough with the cloth version, someone came up with the paper one. If that was meant to divert our frustration it failed. So now you can tell how high class, or not, your doctor’s office is, according … Read more at the source.

Having been relegated to staying off my feet, I find myself in a very uncomfortable position of having to ask for help.
After explaining to someone that I have been in agonizing pain since December 23rd and was unable to get out of the vehicle to come to their front door, they came down to see me. Their comment was, after the hug, “what’s wrong, you don’t look very cheerful.?”
