Got fencing?

Keep your livestock in and those pesky predators out with some sturdy, rustic, pole/log fencing! Each element is only 1 prim: yes, I've finally started using sculpties (always the last one in town with the new technology). Also included is a sign post so you can hang your shingle saying "open", "welcome", "keep out", or "beware the lemming". One of these days, when I get some clothes run up, I'm going to have a "grand opening", but until then, visit my little barn at Peterman's Folly.

Explaining the rash of blacked-out profile pics

Courtesy of Otenth Paderbourn, I was just made aware of this proposed nonsense. It's utter nonsense, and already I'm seeing the black avatars spreading across Facebook, Twitter, and elsewhere. Black Power!

Peterman Ltd. has a shingle!


I decided that if I was going to start selling things, I'd better get a sign/logo together. It's not set in stone, but I think this conveys the period and mood pretty well.

Spring Treelines are in!


Just finished the treelines for spring. A typical conifer/deciduous Pacific Northwest boundary forest...at least typical for my pasture, which is where these photos were taken. There are 3 different 20x20 prims to give you a grand backdrop, whether you want privacy, a theatrical scrim, or to keep people from falling off the edge of the sim. Copy/mod. Available in the greenhouse at Peterman's Folly or on XStreet.

Super Secret Society...not

There seems to be some confusion and furor over the "Second Life Secret Library" book club, started on "Goodreads" and overlapping into SL. The name is most decidedly not a declaration of exclusivity, just a mimicry of another book Goodreads book club and a connected podcast.

Frankly, I love the humor of having a "secret" club that is anything but secret. All book loving folks are welcome to join! If you can't make it to the book discussions, that's ok. There's a forum on the Goodreads site. I love seeing what other folks are reading, and I've discovered some future reads this way. It's just another, minor, social networking thing with an intellectual/amusement twist.

The ultimate joke would be if everybody in Steelhead (and related sims) were members. Yeah, big secret. I'd love that! In fact, anybody who feels left out or excluded should just get on Goodreads and join up. I'm pretty good about approving memberships quickly. The reason we don't have open enrollment is that we'd like to keep it SL-centric. If you want to call that an "agenda" then go right ahead, it's a free world.

Read on!
