NAUTILUS EMBASSY OPENS

H.E. Freddie HarringtonThe latest addition to Bellisseria's Corps Diplomatique – new ambassador for Nautilus, His Excellency Freddie Harrington – will receive the keys to his new embassy on December 22nd at 12 noon SLT.

Here's the SLURL to the embassy (take the elevator/lift!) but watch out in the BBB User Group (BBBug) for your official invitations. Formal wear is encouraged for the grand ball that will follow to celebrate the occasion. 

This is our nearest event to Christmas this year, so feel free to go full glam!


USING THE NEW BBB POST OFFICES

This holiday season I’ve been using the new post box system from the BBB. I picked up a free mailbox from the Bellisseria Post Office some weeks ago and placed it outside my Bellisserian home.

I chose the small wall-mounted version. It suits my Victorian Linden home pretty well, but there are other styles available. These past few days I’ve been using the free greetings card kit kindly supplied. The cards come with readymade Christmas textures, but you can use your own to make them more personal and reflect how you celebrate the holidays. You can also write your own message.

Just like in RL you need to find a post box to mail your gifts and cards. For me that meant a trip to the Smuggler’s Inn PO where I found a very British red post box and simple instructions for mailing goodies.

You might say “Hey I can just send my friends things over chat”. Yes it’s true but it’s nowhere near as fun as arriving home to find you have mail then collecting it by touching your mail box. The system checks all of the post offices, including those on the mainland.

Today I have a nice card from a friend for my mantelpiece.

I’m an advocate of more “immersion” in Second Life – I’m  a guy who'd rather boat, fly or drive than teleport. I think this simple, fun system adds to that.

NEW POST OFFICES OPEN IN HORIZONS AND SATORI

Two new BBB Post Offices open this week. The first is in Horizons and the second is in Satori. Both offer their own visa stamps. Their locations and images are in this week's "New Stamp Locations" section below. 


NEW STAMP LOCATIONS

You can collect visa stamps from several new locations this week, including the two new post offices mentioned above and two new LDPW locations. In addition you can visit picturesque Port Emyniad on Corsica's Campbell Coast or drop in on a new Pacific-themed lush tropical airfield in Nautilus. 

STOP PRESS: Two new seasonal event locations were added at the last moment – after the Gazette had gone to print. The first is Sense of Snow, a "rustic holiday cabin" in the Snowland of Sansara that you are welcome to visit during the holiday period until January 15th 2022. The second is Snowhaven 2021, a winter event at the Bellisseria Fairgrounds that will run from 10th to 29th December. If you're not in the holiday spirit yet, we recommend a visit to either. It will de-Scrooge you!
