2018 Summer Editions!!

It was a love affair to be forbidden. He was the god of the sun and she was the goddess of the moon. Helios was a handsome young man crowned with the shining radiance of the Sun. He drove the chariot of the sun across the sky each day. Hecate was a highly regard goddess. She was a bit of an outsider who straddled conventional boundaries and defied definition. But… despite their differences, there was an instant powerful connection. When word of their love surfaced, their families warned them…. telling them that the future of them or their offspring was unclear. Despite the continuous pressure to end such unconventional love, they did not give up. Their love was unique and real. After numerous failed attempts by their families to break their connection, Hecate found out she was with child. Helios was beyond happy but was also worried after the warnings and uncertainty this breeding would bring. As months went by it was time for the offspring of this forbidden love to come in to the world….When the two first laid eyes on what their love had created they were at a loss for words! The talk had spread quickly of the birth of this much anticipated arrival. They were eager to see the offspring of Hecate and Helios….The forbidden lovers!

Are you eager to see the offspring also?? Then don’t miss out…

From today August 9, 2018 to Friday August 24, 2018 Amaretto will have the NEW 2018 Summer Editions out for sale… 2018 Summer Edition – Helios and 2018 Summer Edition – Hecate!!

Gorgeous Graduation Animals!

Hello Amaretto Community and welcome to a new week! Happy Monday!! Today I wanted to take a moment to talk to you about ARU, Amaretto Ranch University. ARU has many courses that are beneficial to someone just starting out in breedables and equally beneficial to the most seasoned breeders. At ARU, our main goal is to make Amaretto products understandable and enjoyable for everyone. Many people get stumped when it comes to using the racing HUD or get confused what to do when something goes wrong and they need to file a ticket. At ARU, we have the answers! ARU is offered to the community free of charge. Classes are held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9AM and 5PM, and on Saturday at 11AM. All you have to do is show up on time, submit a completed notecard after class to show attendance, and sign up on the ARU website to keep track of your course progression. Each year Amaretto has a graduation ceremony and after party for those who have completed all of the ARU courses. Now… if that wasn’t enough to make you want to attend ARU let me give you a glance at the gradation animals…

I hope these cuties give you even more incentive to come look in to the Amaretto Ranch University classes! You can find a monthly calendar showing the classes available. This calendar is update monthly. http://amarettobreedables.com/pages/ARUCalendar

Until next time… Happy breeding!

Let’s Celebrate Sisters!

Tomorrow is Sister’s Day!!

Celebrated on the first Sunday of August on an annual basis, Sister’s Day is a fun holiday in which sisters can acknowledge the bonds of love and friendship between them and celebrate the special relationship that only exists between them and their sister – or sisters, as the case may be.  And while this holiday was initially established to acknowledge the relationship between biological sisters, over the years, more and more people are celebrating “sister-like” relationships that may exist with their friends or coworkers.

While the history of Sister’s Day is currently unknown, it is interesting to note that in parts of India and Nepal there is a very similar day known as Raksha Bandhan that is celebrated in August as well. However, Raksha Bandhan celebrates the bonds between brothers and sisters, not sisters among themselves and it isn’t celebrated on the first Sunday in August.

Unfortunately, Sister’s Day isn’t recognized as a Federal or public holiday in the U.S. Which means that mail delivery and bus schedules will remain the same and no businesses or government agencies close on this day.

 

 

Different people celebrate Sister’s Day in different ways. Some people plan a whole of events that they can do with their sisters. Other people send their sister’s presents, cards or flowers. Another way to celebrate the holiday is to make a post on social media about Sister’s Day. Many sisters’s decide to have a girl’s night out. They go out dancing or out for dinner and use this holiday to make the bonds between them and their sister even stronger.

Many sorority houses use the day to celebrate the special bonds that exist between sorority sisters. They often hold sister-themed events and other celebrations that remind them how important their sisters are to them.

So get on out there & celebrate your sister or sister-like relationships, have fun and check out this gorgeous We Are Family eye!!

 

 

Until next time this is Snookie saying share some hugs with your family & Happy Breeding!!

Haven Horse Happiness!

Hello Amaretto Community and Happy Fri-YAY! I hope you are all ready for the weekend! Today I wanted to take a moment to tell you all about the Haven Horses! Amaretto Breedables offers a reward system called Horse Haven. When you send your Horse to Horse Haven you will receive a number of points based on the number of traits and age for a particular Horse. Once you have accumulated enough points, you can use these points to purchase an array of items from the Horse Haven Vendor such as Pet Food, Healing Kits and our unique Horse Haven Horses. When you breed a Horse Haven Horse (whether it is with another Horse Haven Horse or any other horse) you DO have an increased chance at receiving a random Charmed Horse. These unique horses do NOT have the ability to pass their eyes. Let’s take a look at the beauties now!

 

 

I hope you enjoy these beauties! Start thinning out your herd now and send those unwanted or unneeded horses and bundles to Horse Haven and start saving those horse cents for a stunning Haven Horse!

Until next time… Happy breeding!

Group Chat Etiquette

Happy Hump Day Fellow Breeders!

SLetiquette is an informal term for Second Life etiquette: manners and customs to help you live a happier Second Life. These should extend to all your social interactions with others within the Second Life platform. Chat room etiquette is including in an effort to help you avoid unpleasantness in a chat room. This applies to all Amaretto group chat, as well.

A list of common courtesies expected of group chat participants is found below:

  • Be civil to others. This is important in any situation, but even more so in a chat room, because only text is seen, and you can not see facial expressions or hear tones of voice.
  • Please remember that chatting online is still a form of communication with other human beings. Therefore, it is important to carry on your chat as you would if you were sitting face-to-face with the person with whom you are speaking.
  • Do not bash or belittle others. A basic rule of thumb: if you wouldn’t want someone to do it to you then you should not do it to them. Remember to be kind to one another.
  • State questions clearly in the room. Be specific in what you are looking for and provide all relevant details to your question. Give the room a chance to answer you. Patience is a virtue.
  • Don’t spam or flood the room with repeated questions, statements, or links.
  • Avoid typing in all caps. It is hard on the eyes to read and considered rude. It is the Internet equivalent to shouting. If you want to call attention to a particular word or phrase, do so in the same manner that you would in conversation.
  • Many chat rooms have a list of rules for participants. Read them carefully before entering a chat room to be sure you know what to do and what to expect of others. For example: All Amaretto groups state that they are for POSITIVE chat and support for the Amaretto community. And, that there is to be NO ADVERTISING OF ANY KIND* (including freebies, giveaways or trading). *Excluding the ~Amaretto Advertising Network~
  • Inappropriate language is not appreciated, nor tolerated. You should be able to get your point across calmly and cleanly, without resorting to vulgarity.
  • Avoid using slang or texting shortcuts that may be unfamiliar to other chat room participants. Using text that cannot be easily deciphered is like using a foreign language when you know your audience does not understand it. Since your reason for participating in a chat room is to share your views and listen to the views of others, clarity is a good goal to keep in mind.
  • If there are other chat room participants who are rude or hostile, do not engage with them. Doing so only fans the flames of anger or rudeness, and you may get burned in the process.

At Amaretto, we are a family and should treat each other accordingly!

Until next time…Happy Breeding!
