It was a truly historic day on Tuesday 21st January 2009. Unless you have been stuck on Help Island with no tp facility, you cannot have failed to notice that the inauguration of the first ever black President of the United States with all the associated hopes for a nation and indeed the world that that entails, was the event of the day. Although in truth it was followed closely by the Historic Hat worn by Aretha Franklin at the same event!

As I watched the luminaries take their place on the erected podium on the Capitol Building and the huge, and I do mean huge, crowds packing the Mall, I could feel my own sense of excitement rise as, in effect, the enthusiasm of the US for the pending installation of a new and very special president was extremely infectious.
From Kent to Kenya, Beijing to Belize, Arctic to the Amazon the whole world watched with keen anticipation.
Then the moment arrived. President elect Barack Hussein Obama rose to take the Oath Of Office. Did a hush descend across the world? I fancy it did! Over the next few moments the president elect spoke with sure footed confidence, and even managed a deft sidestep when served up a nice curve ball from Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts. Then, the deed was done.
With a few hugs of congratulations the most powerful man on the planet turned to address the world.
With a speech that offered no hiding places for the tasks that face the US both domestic and foreign, that slammed those who would swim against the tide or not pull their weight, that set out his intent to ensure the US leads from the front as a force for good. A speech which offered an open palm to all but the clenched fist, and a promise of a duty of care for our precious environment. Now I felt inspired!!

There was no doubt in my mind that this man Barack Hussein Obama has the opportunity to make and change his country and indeed the world for the better. If he and his team can muster the will and strength to wrest the grip of big business and lobbyists from the levers of power this truly can be the most influential and important Presidencies in many generations. And I for one feel confident that it is within him and judging by the millions who braved a freezing morning in Washington, I was not alone. Dare we now believe?

My CONGRATULATIONS to our American cousins on the inauguration of your 44th President!! And Aretha Franklin on her Hat!!

Wow! January is almost over!!! Where does the time go? We wanted to let you know about some of the happenings at Tribe islands!


As you know, I send IM’s to remind you about rent/tier payments. Lots of you have been telling me you are not receiving the message. It seems SL likes to eat my messages! ( It must be because I flavor them with bacon! *grins* ) From NOW on, I will be sending notecards for the reminders. I will ALWAYS try to reach you when you are online because I DO love talking to all of you sexy peeps!


Also, for those of you who are unaware, TRIBE ISLANDS do sell lindens and we do not impose limitations on the amount you can buy. It’s simple and easy! All you have to do is IM me and you can pay for them by using either Pay pal or CreditCard!


Lastly, we have a new addition on one of our islands: Tribe Manor! They say a picture paints a 1000 words so instead of going on and on describing what it looks like, I asked Drift to take a picture. You may thank him for keeping me from babbling on! Our residents are welcome to use the manor for parties or weddings! If you’d like to book a free event at Tribe Manor, please contact me, Alexxa Despres, and I can check on the availability!

BIG hugs and kisses to all of you from all of us at TRIBE!

ELVIS LIVES!!!!!!!!!

Just in time for the celebration of the King's Birthday, there has been an Elvis siting here on Tribe Islands! I know that people say that he is dead, but I have my own of which is that he is NOT dead at all but very much alive....and playing the slots in Las Vegas!!!!! I saw him the other day and as he grinned at me with that ever-famous curled lipped smile! I could have sworn I heard him say, " Priscilla honey, bring me an iced-tea! " So as a tribute to one of the greats, and for a little bit of fun, I snapped a picture of this rock and roll icon. As an aside, please post YOUR fave Elvis tune. I'll get the ball rolling! Without a doubt, my favorite is Can't Help Falling in Love

Happy New Year!!!

Another year has come and gone and along with it lots of changes in both real life as well as second life. As a famous Scot once remarked…”For auld lang syne”. In 2009, I think we all hope for a year that is filled with joy and happiness not only for ourselves but for all. Let 2009 be a year where there is more compassion and consideration in the world…not just for those less well off than ourselves, but for everyone and everything!! So lets put a big smile on our faces…suck in the wonderful air…and march on into the future with a purpose to share everything good that life has to offer! (those who had a few too many over New Years are allowed to stagger). One of the VERY best things about Second Life is the ability to come together with people from all over the world, to experience the many cultures and customs and to share your own. So, for all of you, from all of us at Tribe…. here’s wishing you a year filled with hope , love and most of all, Happiness ! Happy 2009!
