Book Excerpt: “Don't cry yet.  It is not yet time.  You mustn't, not after how hard you worked to get here and how hard you've worked to gain the trust of everyone here.” Daki mind-spoke to her as they waited for the procession to make it through the large, open gates that separated the temple grounds from the outside world. “When will be the right time? When will I be allowed to publicly grieve?  I refuse to hide my emotions from the world, from the realm.  Emotions make us stronger, not weaker.” “I will let you know the time.  I will let you know when to release.  After that, however you see fit to grieve will be acceptable.” “So much I have sacrificed for this realm.  So much for my power.  So much death and many lies and so much deceit.  I've sold my soul to become this woman.  Sometimes I wonder if it was all worth it.  But then--” “But then you remember all those who sacrificed for you to be here-- those who sacrificed their lives and who they are, just so that you could be here.  You must not let them down.  And most of all, you must be the woman your husSalinor Online Purchase Day2013-11-15 06:00:0037

ARTISTS IN THE PLUS1,959,873+Artists In The Plus is proud to bring you a very special "Concerts In The Plus!' with Guitar Legend +Preston Reed. (Banner Photo By +Ralf Hebauf ) +Preston Reed has virtually reinvented how the acoustic guitar is played. Reed practices a flamboyant self-invented style, characterized by percussive techniques and simultaneous rhythm and melody lines that dance and ricochet around each other, giving his music a level of excitement that is unparalleled among today's guitarists. Playing an array of guitars from acoustic to electric to classical Reed's vast range of explosively original music will forever change your expectation of a guitarist. First-time listeners find it impossible to believe that they're hearing just the one musician, in real time. Reed attacks the entire instrument in a never-ending search for the orchestra he knows is lurking inside. At full tilt, his fingers, thumbs, fists and hands at once suggest a drummer, keyboardist, bassist and several guitarists at work. The most impressive thing about Reed's technique, though, is that it doesn't draw attention to itself. His compositions are far from abstract virtuosic displays; even without lyrics he creates vivid, engrossing scenes. Sometimes the effect is almost onomatopoetic. Reed generates visual stimuli with every tweak of his instrument, thus augmenting his wordless compositions with an aura of the poetic. Each tune is a story in itself with a potent, cinematic atmosphere and an almost tangible thread of communication between Preston Reed and the listener. Reed's entry into this guitar odyssey was inauspicious enough, his path thereafter largely self-discovered. A few chords learned from his guitar playing father, a brief, very brief, flirtation with the ukulele, clandestine practice sessions of his favourite Beatles and Stones songs on dad's guitar .... and then a too-strict classical guitar teacher led to premature retirement. At 16, however, Reed heard Jefferson Airplane's rootsy blues offshoot, Hot Tuna. His interest was rekindled big time. Acoustic guitar heroes John Fahey and Leo Kottke were studied, their styles absorbed but not imitated, and at this point things really begin to get interesting because, at 17, Reed, by now precociously proficient, played his first live gig, supporting beat poet Allen Ginsberg at the Smithsonian Institute. Just getting on a train from his native Armonk in New York State to Washington was a cool adventure. And it was just the first of many, not least of which was the one which resulted from his signing his first deal with a major record company, MCA, through the auspices of his friend, country singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett. Determined to make the most of this opportunity, Reed pushed himself to go beyond the standard fingerpicking styles he'd perfected. The result was the beginnings of Reeds startlingly innovative style, with its percussive, two-handed fretboard attack, that you hear today and which has caused guitar luminaries such "Concerts In The Plus!"

We always have a lot of fun with that and learn more about each other, especially the newer members of the circle.Enjoy meeting the new people that you meet in this circle, and yes there are some new faces. Thanks for all of your support.Have a great week. #engagers   #engagerscircle   #engagersshowcasecircle   #sharedcircle   #sharedcircleoftheday  2014-12-06 16:49:382041402392

Asparagus

Prosciutto, Poached Eggs

I was only able to get one bunch of asparagus from the Farmers Market on Saturday. Waiting for the right moment to enjoy. They had asked, seeing that they didn't have much this week, if you would please limit your purchase to one bunch. That way more people would be able to have some. Of course, it would have been rude to do otherwise!

So very, very simple, sauteed asparagus, topped with two poached eggs and fried prosciutto. Pure heaven!

This Saturday, hopefully, I will be able to get three bunches of asparagus. Again, depending on how the asparagus grows this week. If it's a good week, the asparagus frenzy will begin!!! As it only happens once a year, I plan on enjoying it to the max!

“It’s still incredibly exciting and attractive as a prospect for farmers to sell directly to supermarkets. Everything gets purchased, they’ll buy in bulk,” he suggests. “But you’re at their mercy. It’s a self-inflicted problem, farmers aren’t just stuck, they decide to go into business and become reliant on the supermarkets. If you become reliant on just one buyer and suddenly they can get what they want cheaper, then you’re fucked.”

“The Food Assembly is a French concept created by French entrepreneurs Guilhem Chéron and Marc-David Choukroun,” explains Katie Roche, who moved from Dublin to London to join The Food Assembly team. “They saw the need for a healthier food system, one that isn’t driven by global prices, big industry, and dictated by supermarkets.”

There are currently 26 “Assemblies” in the UK, with over 700 across in France. Customers order the products they want online based on what the producer has available that week. The produce can’t come from further than 150 miles but most of what I see is much more local.

Spicy Meatball Sub

Asian Spiced Pork Meatballs, La Bianca Cheese, Shaved Asparagus, Sauteed Shiitake Mushrooms, Wholewheat Bun

Berkshire pork meatballs, I used fish sauce, garlic, fresh chili pepper, finely diced bacon and parsley to spicy up the meatballs. Baked in a 350F oven for about 40 minutes, turned over at 20 minutes.

1 lb ground pork
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 whole chili, diced (leave in the seeds and membrane if you like hot)
2 tbsp finely diced bacon
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp chopped Italian parsley
1 egg

Mix everything together, shape into meatballs (about 1 1/2 to 2 ") and bake at 350F for 20 minutes. Turn and bake for another 20 minutes until done. Adjust baking times depending on the size of your meatballs.

They are spicy and go best in the submarine sandwich.

Asian Spiced Pork Meatballs, La Bianca Cheese, Shaved Asparagus, Sauteed Shiitake Mushrooms, Wholewheat Bun

Berkshire pork meatballs, I used fish sauce, garlic, fresh chili pepper, finely diced bacon and parsley to spicy up the meatballs. Baked in a 350F oven for about 40 minutes, turned over at 20 minutes.

1 lb ground pork
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 whole chili, diced (leave in the seeds and membrane if you like hot)
2 tbsp finely diced bacon
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp chopped Italian parsley
1 egg

Mix everything together, shape into meatballs (about 1 1/2 to 2 ") and bake at 350F for 20 minutes. Turn and bake for another 20 minutes until done. Adjust baking times depending on the size of your meatballs.

They are spicy and go best in the submarine sandwich.

Trying a new cheese from The Cheesiry (farmers market) called La Bianca. Seasonal, available from late May through November. From their website: A soft, creamy, surface ripened cheese with delicate flavour of mushroom undertones. Delicious and I'll be buying more, went wonderfully well in the sub.

Shaved fresh asparagus. Just use a vegetable peeler to shave your asparagus, nibble on the leftover bits as you cook.

Sauteed shiitakes, simple.

Food coma may have happened after dinner.

Ducks and Hockey Sticks

Must be Canadian!

Watch the video.

Four ducklings trapped inside the storm sewer system in Regina were rescued by a quick thinking family who used a butterfly net attached to a hockey stick to retrieve the birds through the sewer grate.

Curried Pickerel Soup

A little immune system boost, there seems to be a flu of sorts making the rounds here. Thought a chicken stock based, spicy soup would be a good idea.

Homemade chicken stock, tumeric, roasted cumin, fresh ginger, garlic, onions, carrots, pickerel. Simple though delicious!

Omelette

Asparagus, Shallots, Blue Cheese

What do you do when you don't use enough olive oil in the pan to keep your omelette from sticking. Cover the not so nice looking spots with cheese. Yes, asparagus and blue cheese are a match made in food heaven.

A quick stop on the way back from the Farmers Market for breakfast. My days off tend to be the same as their days closed. Today, I had a few extra minutes...

Roasted Potato Salad

Mango Ribs

Just have to love leftovers, especially after a hard day's work. The ribs were easy to reheat. The roasted potato salad came together quickly.

Roasted yellow potatoes, bell peppers, bacon, chives, serrano balsamic vinaigrette. I roasted the potatoes in a little bacon fat, until crispy outside, fluffy tender inside. Tossed with bacon, red bell peppers and chives. Made a quick vinaigrette using grainy dijon mustard, bacon fat and serrano honey balsamic. The secret to a roasted potato salad is to toss the vinaigrette on while the potatoes are still hot from the oven. They soak up all of the vinaigrette giving a real flavour punch!

Mango BBQ Sauced Pork Side Ribs

Tomato/Basil Pasta, Brown Butter Asparagus

Well, the ribs kind of smothered all the other food. I was too lazy to cut them up before putting them on the plate.

I made a bbq sauce (quick style) using bravas sauce, fresh mango, Serrano honey balsamic, whirred together, based on the last hour of cooking. The ribs had been rubbed with ancho chili powder. Still using the oven as I haven't acquired a BBQ (yet).

Sauteed asparagus, drizzled with some brown butter, pasta quickly tossed with caramelized onions, fresh cherry tomatoes and fresh basil. Delicious, down home food.

Apple, Vanilla and Brown Butter Streusel Cake

Trying a new recipe from Fruitful, Four Seasons of Fresh Fruit Recipes by Brian Nicholson, Sarah Huck. Out of this world, by far the best apple cake I've ever had. Not too sweet, rich, decadent and still warm, coffee on the side. The original recipe calls for maple sugar, none in the house, substituted vanilla sugar.

I have a few apples and pears from the farmers market on Saturday. I'll be perusing this book more for ideas and recipes.

Beef Burger

Balsamic Thyme Mushrooms, Tomatoes, Applewood Smoked Cheddar, Mayo, Spicy Sprouts

Ummm, burger kick? Grass-fed beef, yes, you can taste the difference (in my humble opinion). Balsamic thyme mushrooms - saute mushrooms in olive oil until golden, add: chopped fresh thyme, balsamic and a touch of honey. Reduce the balsamic until almost dry. Marvelous!

Bison Burger

Burnt Honey Onion, Asparagus, Cambozola Blue Cheese

Score!!! The flavours are spot on with this burger, creamy blue that compliments both the asparagus and bison to a T!  Creamy, salty, the sweetness of both the asparagus and burnt honey onions, wonderful contrast!

The bison burger, simply flavoured with minced garlic, salt and pepper. No binders or fillers, pure, juicy pink, so meaty! This, I would so serve to company!

Saving for a BBQ, it's about the only thing I think could add another level to this burger combination.

Knead lightly, pat to 1/2 inch thick, cut out with 2 inch biscuit cutter or a lightly floured glass/cup.

Place on a baking sheet, about 1 inch apart. Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown.

Add the toppings of your choice.

Maple butter and a slice of bacon might have also occurred....

Asparagus Three Ways

Oven Grilled Asparagus, Dill Aioli, Smoked Salmon/Preserved Dill Lemon, Egg Yolk

Dinner/breakfast, consumed late, late last night. I kept it quite simple. Oven grilled, lightly coated with olive oil, a pinch of salt. I have yet to invest in a BBQ, hopefully before the asparagus season ends. Adore, adore bbq'ed asparagus. Each one of the accompaniments were great friends of asparagus. Yes, the yolk is raw, makes the most amazingly creamy sauce when broken open, asparagus dipped.

The simplest of flavours make the biggest bangs!

Two

Two beautiful bunches of asparagus! Still on limited buying but slowing moving up. I'll be having a very late dinner tonight as it's late shift for me. I think there will be some asparagus involved, as it's super fresh and quick!

I was talking to the lady that grows the asparagus about alternative ways to save the harvest to be enjoyed through the year. Other than pickles or relishes, she suggested soup and was kind enough to provide a recipe. She sells this soup, I'll just pick up a bag of odds and ends (bits of asparagus), a container of the frozen soup she makes (tasting/learning) and go from there.

Please listen.

Mountain View, we have a problem

Dear Google, I’m your friend. Really I am. If I weren’t, I wouldn’t take time to tell you there’s a problem. I’m not rage quitting, that’s an easy way out and unworthy of what you’ve built. I’m going to try to make this place better and if not, I’ll find someone, who’ll help me build a better place. That’s not an idle threat, because you know there are smart people with drive out there. Complacency and lack of direction make incumbents vulnerable. 

so let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late (B. Dylan) 

TL;DR
GPlus needs to change and put humans in the middle instead of compartmentalizing us neatly. Suggestions for improvement are also provided. A user group advising and providing feedback would be a good start.  Stop here or proceed at your own peril.


What do you want to be when you grow up?

My friends at Google, we know you have the smartest people, you have the best data, you’re everywhere in tech. Here we are having this discussion on GPlus, an absolutely fantastic site full of potential, but often frustrating to myself and apparently others too. I think I am beginning to understand why.  You don’t know what you want to do with GPlus; you’ve got data instead of people at the heart of the design. 

Just one man’s opinion

Clearly, what I am writing is from a very limited perspective. I lack the data you have. I lack the specialization in this field you have. I am not objective. Thus, this is admittedly only my take on things and I won’t presume to be a speaker for everyone, but I will speak clearly and earnestly with you. I want you to succeed, but if you won’t change in ways that make the experience better here for me, I will go elsewhere, because eventually someone else will offer a better experience if you do nothing. 

No free lunch

This is our implicit bargain.  You been getting my content, tracking me, selling ads using what you know about me. In return, I have been able to use GPlus and other great tools from Google (Search, Drive, Docs, Hangout/Chat, Translate, Scholar, Android, Picnik in the GPlus Photos, etc…) I think we’ve both been more or less content with this deal. I am no longer content though with the experience on GPlus, because it could and should be more.  

What you’ve done well

You’ve given us some very easy to use and powerful features on GPlus. The Hangouts on Air, while something I seldom attend, has been a great way for me to sample some musicians. Events have been great for specific, directed purposes. Hangouts / Chats have been a mixed blessing , but the fact that you offer it as part of the package has been great. You’ve built in a translate function that makes some languages that I don’t speak halfway accessible to me. It lets me follow people with quality posts in different languages. I love the photo quality and tools. Auto awesome, Auto Enhance, the Picnik toolset and the generous space have made sharing photos here easy and fun. Circles are a very good feature that rapidly became my favorite tool for dealing with the stream to ensure I saw what I wanted from people I circled and posted to whom I wanted. Let’s not forget your two-step verification, which gives additional security on the account. Blocking and reporting spam features have been tools that so far, thankfully, I have rarely had to use, but I’m glad they’re there. You deserve special credit for never going down the “Farmville” or “Mafia War” or any of those other games of similar ilk route. That’s definitely a laudable decision to not do something. Sometimes not doing something is just as important as what you do. 

I’m probably forgetting things that have become so second nature that I just take them for granted. That’s a compliment to so many things that are done well here. 


”It depends” Category

Google, you’ve got a lot of things that are a mess. Sometimes they are helpful and sometimes they are mixed blessings at best. I mentioned Hangouts above. One of the people I have followed for a long time on GPlus, who has used hangouts a lot more than I ever have or probably will, told me the other night that her Hangout turned into Chatroulette. If people want Chatroulette they go there. If people want a reasonable discourse a GPlus Hangout ought to be a good alternative. 

Communities  Yes, I get the purpose. I understand why it is good to have private discussion groups or focused forums. Communities have proliferated so much though, that I hardly go to the ones I have anymore. Despite invites I now only add a community once in a blue moon, because I just don’t have time to get to them anymore. I also think they are divisive and detrimental to engagement on GPlus. Oh, some people in communities are passionate and engage frequently and meaningfully within a community, but their voices are sorely missing in the public stream. 

Collections  Again, something I understand. I’ll get around to setting up some. I know that when I post a picture of a spider, even some of my most loyal followers get a shock. Putting spider pictures in a collection could be a good idea to deal with this. They can follow me, but opt out / suppress the spider collection. At least in theory. If someone follows 1000 people will they realistically go to that granular level, esp. over time? After all use of collections will be ongoing and dynamic, so users would have to continually update which collections to turn on or off. I’m sure Google has thought it through. My gut feeling is that collections serve the following purposes: 

1. It’s a Google version of Pinterest (simplistic, but I’m running with that for now) 

2. Google likes to have things categorized. It fits neatly into your most powerful capability: search. You guys can even search scripts and DOMs accurately. If you get people to cleanly categorize pictures and maybe even label them for you, you have another goldmine to make yourselves indispensable with. How could you resist getting users to categorize for you? 

The danger is that it’s going to put keywords and items in the center instead of people. We’re not discovering and interacting with people, we’re searching for and discovering photos associated with keywords. If we don’t know what we don’t know, how will we find something new? Won’t this lead to a progressive encapsulation or a type of filter bubble for our user experience? 

Ok. The intentions behind Collections are good, but I’m keeping an eye on this.


The Bad and sometimes Downright Ugly

November 2013 was a low-water mark for Google Plus. I believe you made an immense mistake that severely damaged the ecosystem. I liken it to an asteroid impact on Earth leaving a distinctive mark in the fossil record. GPlus was for the most part a community of people, who wanted to be on the Plus and who interacted with each other positively (my experience). Then you forced the integration of GPlus and YouTube . I know you’ve heard the complaints before and this is history, but it still echoes here. The YouTube integration marked a time when I started losing people that I enjoyed on here. They either abandoned the place or went to almost exclusively private posts. It is my subjective impression that GPlus went from exuberant adolescent to wary young adult in that period. Let me tell you GPlus that I don’t want my identity on GPlus and my identity on YouTube merged. I want to have a public and a private persona: even if you may know everything I do, I don’t necessarily want every like or dislike to be for public consumption. You overstepped there and you let the barbarians overrun Camelot. They weren’t even interesting barbarians, a better description of the horde would be cretinous trolls.

Hashtags  Please get hashtags under control. I do understand that you need some. Take a look at my attached snapshot evidence hashtaghell. When a post has a title and maybe one or two lines of text and then is followed by two pages of hashtags things are out of control. Do you really think that’s a good idea? Is that really how you want us to reach out to each other? Do you want to take SEO and the “Plus My Post” game to these extremes? 

Circle share abuse  well, you fixed that radically didn’t you? Was there no better way than to completely eliminate it? At what point did you discuss this with your users? I don’t miss circle shares that much and don’t really care. I wasn’t in that game, although I did benefit from shares and apparently was shared some hundreds of times. What bothers me is the lack of discourse with your users. There were legitimate uses for it, but you killed the whole feature. 

What’s Hot fix that too. Yes, you want a “trending” feature, I get it. Curate it How many times will a particular user with only 5000 followers get hundreds or thousands of “+1s” , a handful of comments and never respond to any commenter? Zero engagement, nada, zilch, but every day turn up on “What’s Hot”. Sure, some of those shots are good, but they’re not outclassing everyone else every day. Is that on the level? Maybe it is. Maybe it is the culture and the region. I think you’re being gamed. I damned sure am sick of seeing that. Oh yeah, I can block, but you’re letting it happen. Blocking only pretends it’s not going on. It would be an ostrich tactic.  

Speaking of gaming “What’s Hot”, apparently a couple of hashtags about bees will get you on “What’s Hot and Recommended” even if you don’t have much to say or a very good photo, while other people’s work that I have seen barely gets noticed. That’s a riddle to me too. There are probably other examples, but I think I’ve made the point that something is fishy in Denmark. 

You want users to spend their energy on hashtags and SEO? That’s what you’re going to get. We’re not all in this for money or fame. I understand businesses competing for top page ranks. Let that happen in the Search Engine Wars. Level the playing field on GPlus for normal users. Rigged games turn people off. I don’t think competitive hashtagging is where the majority of users want to wind up. 


Frustration: it’s got to be better than this

Lacking any way to get meaningful statistics inside GPlus, I’ve had to do some reading and use outside tools. Google says there are about 300 million active GPlus users in a month. Stone Temple Consulting did a study of public posts and concluded the number was close to 110 million active users. That’s a lot, but only about 0.5% of Google users. Only 6.7 million have 50 posts or more EVER on GPlus. About 3.5 million have 50 posts in the last 30 days on GPlus. 

Let’s get down to my numbers, because they’re the only ones I can speak directly to. Thanks to 3rd party tools: +CircleCount  and +NOD3x , I have some information I can use.

2171 total public posts from 20110715 to 20150513
2012 posts in statistics 
20.4 +1s per post
0.78 reshares per post
8.2 comments per post

Current numbers based on last 50 posts
20 comments per post
2 reshares per post
55 +1s per post
16992 followers

77 total engages (reshares, comments, +1s)

0.0045 Engaged Spread => 0.45 % interaction based on number of followers
(Reshares + Comments + +1s) /  Followers

0.006 Engaged Depth => .6 %
(reshares*3 + comments*2 + +1s) /  Followers

I can’t say if these are good or bad, but I do feel like I rarely reach someone new in terms of engagement. Mostly, I think, I have a loyal group of regulars (I adore you), with whom I have interaction in comments on my posts or on their posts. If I get past 150 people in a week I’m doing great. That doesn’t seem very good to me considering that I supposedly have almost 17k followers. That’s roughly 0.9% interacting with me. Is that typical? It seems pretty low to me as a layperson, but I do enjoy the interactions with the people I have come to know. I’m happy with the quality so far, but a bit mystified at such a low level of interacting versus the apparent base (17k). 


An eloquent comment by a friend

_ But it wasn't just me who changed. Google+ changed too._ The tone changed and some changes had a profound impact on personal interactions. I saw and still see, people pouring out their hearts and I wonder, do people even still see this? Have we, as in users of social media, become so jaded or is everything happening too fast? Has the neverending stream of information around us dulled our ability to see? (from a friend’s post. Not listing his name to protect him in case things go south on this post. If he wants his name in here, I’ll edit and insert it.) 


Making this place better

Sometimes you have to roll the hard six

I know that I’m opening myself up to be ripped into by lots of people, lectured by others and have still more shake their heads and say “bless his heart”. It’s ok. I don’t want to just criticize. I want changes and have ideas. I’m sure they don’t match everyone’s ideas, but unless people advance ideas on what’s wrong and what needs fixing, you, Google, are going to do what you think best in a vacuum. At least I’m not hearing about you reaching out to people like myself, so it appears to be a vacuum to me.
 

Action Plan

1. You need a user group that’s a real cross-section of your users. Ensure both women and men get to participate. Include power users (bloggers, musicians, artists, tech columnists, authors, etc.), but also regular users. Include people from different regions. Include people using different tools out of your offerings. 

2. give us a meaningful roadmap or vision for GPlus. What are you going to do to make this the best place for people to interact on the web?

3. Put in some “simple” fixes to small, but aggravating problems.

3.1 When a post is reshared and gets plusses, why not have the plusses also automatically added to the original post?

3.2 let people have better view to what happens with their posts. Who is interacting on it (limited number when you click on activity today)? If something takes off, who was the key user in that chain of events?  

3.3 if you won’t give us the tools to understand what is going on then open up the API to CircleCount, Node3x and others. Let them develop add-ons to make our experience better. Open it ALL up to them. 

3.4 Give me a way to check my circles. Who is still active? Who abandoned in 2013? Let me clean out my circles without a tedious search one by one. Sure, I would like people to come back, but if they’ve been gone a year or more, I’d like to see it and make space for people, who will interact with me.

3.5 Take hashtags out of the main post. Put them in another section, i.e. a post has a text section, it has an optional “labels” or “hashtag” section, it has a link/photo/video sharing option.

3.6 Curate “What’s Hot” better. Even better than that, get people on GPlus, who actually find good quality postings and put them in a recommended/curated listing. If you’re doing that today, it isn’t living up to my expectations.

3.7 Why don’t you want to be the place for people to come to discuss topics? Why shouldn’t GPlus, built by some of the brightest people of our era, running on and within one of the most capable global companies, be a place that attracts avante garde and intellectual interaction? You ought to want to make this the place to be on the internet. I’m not asking you to be a Facebook killer. Don’t be Facebook, Pinterest, MySpace or the Matrix. Bring bright minds together. Make it easy and rewarding to mix and mingle. You can dominate this space in a way no one else does.

3.8 If you can’t figure out how to make 3.7 happen then find your top contributors of original content (music, art, photos, blogs, regular posts) and make them an offer as a highlighted contributor. At least figure out something to make it rewarding for them instead of leaving them to be worn down by the parade of spammers and trolls. Make sure there is support for them to handle the engagement volume. Some of you remember Dede King? Someone like Dede would be great. Sure she polarized, but we need spice not oatmeal. 

3.9 The “Discover” feature is lame. Those aren’t people interacting with us. Maybe some are news sources, but I don’t need GPlus for that. Famous people, who don’t interact and don’t do their own comments are boring to me. The only one I’ve run across, who was good at that was Jerry Ryan. Fix it. Rotate people in. Use your own statistics to show people, who really interact and let the cream rise to the top. Use your curators to find quality content, not just names. 


4. Dr. Zaius, get your stinking algorithms off me 

Google, you mean well, but these algorithm changes are killing interactions. We users do notice when engagement drops off. It’s not a ghost town, but sometimes things drop off suddenly for a week or two, usually around new feature introductions. If it were just me then I would look for a reason in my posts or the quality of my work. I’ve had enough people tell me they notice something too, that I don’t think it’s me. It’s you Google. You surprise us and you’re not transparent.
What I think is wrong: you’re doing Big Data and assume like likes like. I’m sure there’s statistics for it. I’m sure it’s more comfortable that way, but some of the more interesting people aren’t like me. I also have Circle Management. I know who I want to see out of the people I already know. Why do you keep changing relevance algorithms and pulling us apart? I feel like the bread pudding in the expanding universe analogy where galaxies are raisins and growing further apart. 

I want control over what I see in my existing circles without your algorithms deciding to give me less of Jane Doe and more of John Smith. I also want to be able to discover people from something like the old “incoming stream”. Right now my main way to discover new people is from interaction with new people, who plus/comment on my posts or a GPlus friend’s posts. I grow slowly, organically and have richer interactions, but I don’t know what I’m missing out there. How can I get new stuff in my stream and avoid a “filter bubble” and slow, but sure stagnation? 


Wrapping Up

Google, I care about GPlus. You’ve let me meet wonderful people from all over the world, who I never would have met any other way. I’ve learned from others and I’ve grown in unexpected ways. It has been a great ride. I think you have more to offer, but I also think you’re complacent, distant from your users and lacking clearly communicated direction. You may have it all internally. I know you have extremely sharp, driven people and wouldn’t rule out anything you want to accomplish. You need to remember users though. GPlus may be a great layer on top of other services, but make it something people also continue enjoying to connect with other people. 

Thank you for the good years! I hope you have more to come, but don’t take it for granted. Others may do it better if you won’t put users back in the center. No one stays on top forever. As users we have to adapt to change. As a provider you need to change and adapt to opportunities and threats too. If you make this a place people love (net promoter scores anyone?) GPlus will master all the changes. 

We need very strong ears to hear ourselves judged frankly, and because there are few who can endure frank criticism without being stung by it, those who venture to criticize us perform a remarkable act of friendship, for to undertake to wound or offend a man for his own good is to have a healthy love for him. (Montaigne)

Thanks for listening. I came as a friend.

Asparagus

Prosciutto, Poached Eggs

I was only able to get one bunch of asparagus from the Farmers Market on Saturday. Waiting for the right moment to enjoy. They had asked, seeing that they didn't have much this week, if you would please limit your purchase to one bunch. That way more people would be able to have some. Of course, it would have been rude to do otherwise!

So very, very simple, sauteed asparagus, topped with two poached eggs and fried prosciutto. Pure heaven!

This Saturday, hopefully, I will be able to get three bunches of asparagus. Again, depending on how the asparagus grows this week. If it's a good week, the asparagus frenzy will begin!!! As it only happens once a year, I plan on enjoying it to the max!

Spicy Middle Eastern Wrap

Aleppo Pepper Chicken, Bell Pepper, Preserved Lemon Baba Ganoush, Mizuna, Chives

I roasted off a couple of the eggplants today. Turned them into Baba Ganoush with a twist. Preserved lemon for a tart, salty bite. I used some smoked paprika to kick up the smoky flavour as oven roasting eggplants doesn't give them the smoky flavour essential to a really good baba ganoush. Garlic, tahini, some olive oil to smooth and blend everything together.

A quick saute of the chicken breast, which I first sprinkled aleppo pepper on and let marinate for a half an hour. Sliced bell peppers added when the chicken was almost finished cooking. I like my bell peppers hot through but not mushy. All wrapped up in a warm pita. Delish!

Re-Potting

I enjoy watching plants grow from tiny little sprouts. I had picked up a variety of smaller plants about six weeks ago. They've been merrily growing larger and were in need of a jump up in pot size. I spent a portion of my day moving them into larger accommodations. These three reside in front of a sunny southern window. Spiders are known for cleaning toxins from the air.

Curried Chickpeas

Basmati Rice, Barberries, Green Onions

Flavoured with fresh dill and parsley, lemon and olive oil. Vegetarian night just because. This will become a huge favourite for those nights you actually remembered to take some chicken out to thaw but it didn't thaw as planned.

Curried Chickpeas

1 to 1 1/2 cups chickpeas
1 - 2 tbsp curry powder (bought or homemade)
3 cups cooked basmati rice
1/2 - 3/4 cup finely chopped green onions
1 - 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh dill (personal like)
2 - 4 tbsp chopped Italian parsley (personal like)
1/2 cup barberries (or more to taste)
Fresh lemon juice as needed, I use about 1 - 2 lemons. I start with the juice from one lemon, taste and add more if I find the salad needs more. This is where personal taste is so important.

Salt & pepper, to taste

Heat some olive oil in a saute pan, add the chickpeas and curry powder, saute for about 5 - 10 minutes, adding more olive oil and curry powder as needed or wanted. Gently mix all the ingredients together. Dress with lemon juice and olive oil, mix again. Taste, adjust your seasonings to what you like.

This salad is great served room temperature or cold.

Indian Spice Lamb Ribs

Mixed Vegetable Salad

Lamb ribs totally rock! Inexpensive, they cook up quickly, take just about any spicing. I cooked these lamb ribs in the oven as I have yet to acquire a BBQ (on the list). A simple salad of bell peppers, avocado, cucumbers, tomatoes, chives, dill, olive oil and balsamic. Food doesn't have to be complicated to be delicious.

Dill Pickles

They had some smaller sized cucumbers at the farmers market. Trying some experimentation with fridge pickles. They are not water bathed and will be going into the fridge for the next while to pickle. If they turn out, great, if there are issues they will become Dill Pickle Soup. I'm hoping they turn out well. Getting some practice in before the season hits full force. I'm not certain I have my ratio's correct, everything is written down and will be expanded upon.

I really could use a second fridge, hahahaha!
