USS to move to Blake Sea and Nautilus area

The United Sailing Sims announces a joint community project with Linden Lab to enhance the sailing experience throughout Second Life. Once the move of the 130 plus sim complex takes place to an area east of Nautilus City, the USS will be well positioned to expand their current activities into the 40 plus sims of the about to be formed Blake Sea(named for Sir Peter Blake, the legendary racer and marine environmentalist).

From sailboat racing, to scuba diving, to surfing, to long range cruising, the areas around Nautilus, Blake Sea, and the United Sailing Sims will provide Second Life Residents with unparalleled recreational possibilities. In addition the USS leadership will work with Linden Lab to enhance water based activities across the entire Grid.

Linden Lab states in their formal announcement that "this is the first time that we've allowed estates to connect to the Mainland in this way, and it is testimony to both the great community the USS has built up, and our desire to work with resident groups to improve the Mainland experience."

The actual move will take place in the weeks ahead.

Look for regular updates to the project in the pages of unitedsailingsims.com. The USS press contact is MarkTwain White (marktwainwhite@gmail.com). Mark will hold a town meeting at 9am on Saturday at the USS Headquaters located on the second floor of the Starboards Yacht Club http://slurl.com/secondlife/Hollywood/82/129/32

Excellent! I know the other already-existing mainland sailing groups (ours/Helvellyn included) can't wait for a chance to work directly with LL to improve sailing's quality of life.

What is Lemon Aid? And what/who do they represent?

Lemonade
In North America, it's a non-alcoholic soft drink made with lemon juice, water and sugar. In Britain, it's a non-alcoholic, lemon-flavored, fizzy drink.

Bailout Lemonade
2 1/2 oz Leopold’s Gin
1 ¾ oz Ginger Simple Syrup
½ oz Fresh Lemon Juice
Soda Water
1 Slice Cucumber
2 Sprigs of Mint
Extra Cucumber and Mint for Garnish.

I know lemonade..

In Holland that's the sticky substance (mostly red or green or so) that you put in a glass and add water too.

I would doubt any of the above mentioned ingredients are included: it is probably a chemical substance :P

Our tomatoes aren't chemical. They are just injected with a chemical substance to make them bigger and get rid of that nasty tomato taste.

Well, the late Freddy Heineken visited a convention of beer brewers. Later that evening all got together at the bar and everybody ordered a beer of his own brew.
Except for Heineken. He ordered a coca-cola.

Asked why he was not drinking Heineken he answered: "Well, as you all seem not to be drinking beer, neither will I. "

:P
