cornflakes hats. Delenn showed up with her OSGird avie!! WOOT! How long since we had one of those on hgsafari? Well, actually never, because this sim didn't exist until after OSGrid went offline.
Delenn.Daines @hg.osgrid.org: I logged into os grid with this avie and hypergridded to get here, but I notice i don't have a My Suitcase folder in my inventory
Franziska.Bossi: i lost allot of things
Lucy Afarensis: Lost my underwear
Apmel Fransson: UNDERWARE LOSS RIGHT HERE!!
Wizard Gynoid: i never had any underware to lose
|Zaphod welcomes the group|
Our first stop was not a cornflakey place at all, but a really wonderful art show by Sina Souza. It is hosted on Beeblebrox sim on Dorenas-world grid. Zaphod Enoch was there to meet us.
zaphod Enoch: Welcome to the exhibition of sina souze. she wants to excuse but she can't make it in time to talk about her pics.
Apmel Fransson: what a shame..would have been nice... I never met her in open sim¨
zaphod Enoch: All works are done in secondlife and they are photos which are done in the world and not post processed, except the blue one in the corner which is a commissioned work and postprocessed with photoshop.
Serene.Jewell @grid.kitely.com:8002: These photos are magnificent. Did you say they have no post-processing on them, Zaphod?
Apmel Fransson: Nice is not a word I would use for Sina's work..but they are very good
zaphod Enoch: Each picture tells a little story about sinas life or her feelings.You can find sina's work on american fine arts in the web
|Me and Art looking at ... art.|
zaphod Enoch: Best is to get in touch with sina on Facebook or SL. There she has another two exhibits going on at the moment.

The images raise disquieting notions of entity and power, the deep shuddering inner sensations that can rise up when we peer at the interaction between avatar and owner, as worlds collide. You have another week or so to visit, the HG Address is, as always, at the end of this post.
Wizard Gynoid: where is the "like" button?
Thirza Ember: just a great sim and this was a gorgeous show
Apmel Fransson: Sina is one of my favorite artists
zaphod Enoch: happy you like it
From Beeblebrox, to Hubbub. we were invited to try to crash the sim on Craft grid.
Thanks to Billy Bradshaw, and to Licu Rau and Tao Quan for letting us come dance to Lady Gaga
|Patti looking particularly corny, while Licu leaps like a virtual antelope. Where does he get the energy?|
Before you knew it, we were off to the Cornflakes-Tribute sim on Metropolis grid. Without our NPC dance partners, much to Wizard's chagrin. The sim is owned by Wordfromthe Wise, who opened it up for Cornflakes Week, to give people a chance to see and to copy any og Corn's items they particularly like. Up until the return of OSGrid, Word's collection was one of the few still available for viewing and indeed it's probably the most complete of all. Cornflakes hats were handed out.
James.AtLLOUD: booyah! now properly attired.
Thirza Ember: HAPPY CORNFLAKES WEEK
Mal.Burns: i see white light
Wizard Gynoid: I never liked corn flakes unless it had lots of sugar and milk on it. To the point where they were soggy.
PatriciaAnne.Daviau: oh yuk lol
Sunbeam.Magic: then you must like the Soggy Bottom Boys lol
Wizard Gynoid: photo op on the sign post
James.AtLLOUD: We had cornflakes bars (like rice crispy bars) in the midwest USA
Max.Hill: joue nous une belle musique Aime
Aime.Socrates: le perroquet va chanter
Max.Hill: zy va
Wordfromthe Wise: nice having you all here .. i think cornflakes will watch us in heaven ...
Art Blue: yes I just spoke with him
Thirza Ember: wow there are so many small pieces I never noticed
|Apmel rides the fish. It's a Swedish thing.|
Serene.Jewell: "Never make eye contact while eating a banana" Good advice.
PatriciaAnne.Daviau: words to live by!
Dings Digital: I didn't know Cornflakes personally, but I have been here a lot, in OSGrid times. It always inspired me of seeing the funny side of being inworld. I guess this is often lost.
|Dings rolls out the barrel while Aime plays an intermittently invisible violin|
Wordfromthe Wise: Back in the days, Cornflakes and I where gòód friends on the osgrid. When i moved to Metropolis he wanted to move there as well and gave me his Sandbox Region to load it for him on my simulators in Metropolis.
Wordfromthe Wise: But before he started to build, he passed away. His Stepson contacted me via Facebook, and told me about his death. The only gòód thing about this is, that all his beautyful objects - and in this case - a whole Region full of Joy did not vanished when his creator left Earth and departed to (Builders) heaven
|the lovely Wordfromthe Wise|
Serene.Jewell: So glad you were able to save this, Word
Thirza Ember: next year for Cornflakes Week we'll have fancier costumes ...
Lucy Afarensis: Fun!
