Scott Jarvie427,265*POST YOUR GOOGLE+ ALBUM OF PICTURES* It's been very very popular event in the past and I'm finally doing it again tonight. _This time it will be more organized, more heads up than usual and even a live event._ *SHARE AN ALBUM/GALLERY LINK* It's simple and easy but a lot of work and very fun for all. You simply share an album here and I'll be going through every single one of the albums. Then I will +1 the pictures in the album that I'm really drawn to. *BENEFIT* Well it's simply if you'd love to know which pictures I like most.  I always loved knowing which pictures people really love of mine because it helps me have an eye for which pictures are best received. It's a huge part of becoming a better photographer in my opinion. _*To be able to put out great art is first to know what great art looks like*_ *ON AIR* This will be something new... I'm going to go through all the albums Live, Online as an On-Air hangout. I'll talk a little bit about what I'm doing. If the show goes well I'll keep it for later viewing on YouTube... if the recording isn't great I won't. *SPECIAL GUEST* Because I want to have an outloud conversation about what and why I'm doing things  I will have my good friend and great photographer @109486822103622036238 on the show to facilitate the discussion. She will also visit a lot of these albums and +1 pictures as well. We ask that everyone add her to a circle ... not just because she's awesome (though that's reason enough) but so that if any of these albums are by mistake limited access she will have access. *DIRECTIONS* 1. Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery 2. Put a title or description of what we'll see in the album 3.  *IMPORTANT* If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and perhaps your profile in a recorded Youtube video. 4. Make sure the album is Public access 5. Add @100962871525684315897  @109486822103622036238 to your circles 6. Return the favor. Take some of the other people's albums and +1 some of your favorites. *IMPORTANT* It bears repeating: _If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and your profile (maybe) in a recorded Youtube video._ Do not post a link if you are not ok with lots of people visiting that link in addition to us and are not ok with it being on video as well.Share your Album- A Jarvie PlusOne Critique Experience2012-09-12 05:30:00143

Off to Berlin with a running start. Messed up the alarm clock. Woke up too late. Caught the train by a hair. Forgot all my lenses, my battery charger, my tripod and my eyeliner. Board restaurant is broken.

But we have sandwiches.

The objective is to make sure the client loves the final image. Don't change too much... don't change too little. I don't photograph models, I photograph normal people. But everyone deserves a bit of glam. :)

So absolutely amazing. It's like eating fluffy yellow clouds. Mix a box of angel food cake with a box of instant lemon pudding, 1 cup of water and 1 cup of plain yogurt. Bake as per boxed instructions. Yum!

A dedicated egg cooker... it's one of those purchases that makes me go, "Why didn't I buy one sooner?"

All these years of agonizing wait in the kitchen for the eggs to be ready, or exploding eggs scraped from the ceiling, or eggs cooked to dust... done and gone.

Adobe, your new Acrobat Professional SUCKS. You're trying to make everything easier, but instead, everything is much harder. Extra clicks galore. I do like how you let me edit PDFs now, but the UI needs some serious, SERIOUS work.

Question about Google Calendar and Sunrise...
So, I'm subscribed to a whole bunch of calendars (mostly of Thomas's school), but there is a ton of stuff that isn't interesting to me. How do I get rid of it? Or, if there is no way to delete things from a followed calendar, can I move things from followed calendars into my own calendar and then uncheck the followed calendar?

Usually, Apple's keynote jokes are kinda lame. This intro video was surprisingly really, REALLY good. An Apple/Birdman kina spoof, great acting, great script. Watch the first 4.5 minutes (on the bottom of the article).

Ok, quick update in case you didn't watch the Keynote at WWDC this morning:

Multitasking is coming to iOS... but the good stuff is only coming to the newest iPad Air
iTunes is coming to Android
The Apple Watch will get a Time Travel function.
Apple Music is a subscription service that costs $ 14.99 a month for up to six family members, letting each family member build their own personalized library.
The new version of OS will be "El Capitan" and the new notes app is going to be serious competition with Evernote.

Her name was Bocca di Rosa 
and she thought that nothing, she thought that nothing, 
Her name was Bocca di Rosa 
and she thought that nothing was better than love.

When her train pulled into Sant'Ilario 
by the time she had stepped to the ground, 
the welcoming crowd, at a glance, saw it wasn't 
the Church that had sent her to town.

There are some who make love for a living, 
others have nothing better to do. 
Bocca di Rosa, she wasn't like either: 
love was her passion through and through.

But a life in the service of passion 
often will lead you from bed to bed 
without first finding out of your lover 
whether his heart's free or whether he's wed.

And so, from one day to another,

Her name was Bocca di Rosa 
and she thought that nothing, she thought that nothing, 
Her name was Bocca di Rosa 
and she thought that nothing was better than love.

When her train pulled into Sant'Ilario 
by the time she had stepped to the ground, 
the welcoming crowd, at a glance, saw it wasn't 
the Church that had sent her to town.

There are some who make love for a living, 
others have nothing better to do. 
Bocca di Rosa, she wasn't like either: 
love was her passion through and through.

But a life in the service of passion 
often will lead you from bed to bed 
without first finding out of your lover 
whether his heart's free or whether he's wed.

And so, from one day to another, 
Bocca di Rosa found herself prey 
to the menacing wrath of those bitches 
whose bones she had taken away.

But a village's meddling gossips 
great initiative hardly display, 
so up to this point their revenge had been merely 
to hurl a few insults her way.

Now you know how folks like to advise you – 
in words Jesus himself might have said – 
you know how folks like to advise you 
once they're too old to paint the town red.

Thus an elderly unmarried woman, 
whose heart now within her was ice, 
felt required to offer these villagers 
the benefit of her advice.

And approaching the cuckolded wives, 
she addressed them in words shrewd and wise: 
"We can bring the love thief to her knees 
if we call on the proper authorities."

So they went to speak to the Police Chief, 
and letting all niceties drop, 
said "this baggage has too many customers - 
even more than the local co-op."

So the Chief sent around four Gendarmes, 
wearing their plumes, wearing their plumes, 
and the Chief sent around four Gendarmes, 
wearing their plumes and their firearms.

Now your average cop's never too happy 
to show up for work; but he's vain; 
so dressed in their finest regalia 
they put Bocca on the first train.

All the villagers came to the station, 
from Police Chief to Sacrestan, 
all the villagers came to the station, 
with red eyes and hats in hand,

to say farewell to one who, though briefly, 
with nothing to hide, with nothing to hide, 
to say farewell to one who, though briefly, 
had brought love to the countryside.

There was a yellow banner 
and on it, written in blue 
it said, "Goodbye Bocca di Rosa. When you leave us, 
Spring takes its leave of us too."

News of such strange goings on didn't need 
to be published in print to get round; 
and in no more than just a few minutes they'd heard 
all the details in the next town.

So though many had bid her farewell when she left, 
there were even more at the next station, 
throwing kisses and flowers at Bocca di Rosa 
and trying to make reservations.

Even the parish priest who enjoyed, 
between saying Mass and Confession, 
the ephemeral pleasures of beauty, decided 
he wanted her in his procession.

So in front of them all went the Virgin 
and Bocca di Rosa followed in train, 
and the priest took the two of them out for a walk 
love sacred and love profane.

I registered for Evernote in 2008, but somehow I never found it to be something I could use for myself. Over the years, I kept hearing about it over and over, but I always just used other services. A couple of weeks ago, for some weird reason, I looked into Evernote again and only two days later I was hooked and forked over the fee for a year's subscription. And now I don't even know what I would do without it. 

I'm still fond of Workflowy and Pocket, but Evernote just has everything the other two have. And then some. Is it the perfect app? No. I don't think it exists. But for now, I moved my paperless world over to Evernote. And if you want to give them a try, here's a referral code:

Life in prison, that's a long time for a 29-year-old.
Kids, before doing something stupid, think about it twice. Possibly more than that. And then, after careful consideration, don't do it.

One month in... 
and I still love it. 

It's been about a month, and I'm still wearing my Apple Watch every day. The novelty has worn off, no doubt, but the usefulness remains: I am more active, more connected, and less dependent on my smartphone.

To better understand why the Watch is useful to me, maybe I should give you some background on how I interact with my smartphone. Basically, it is in my purse during the day, and on the charger on my desk during the night. I never wear it in my pockets, and that is probably the reason why I am always missing phone calls. Well, no more. My wrist now "rings", and messages are a quick glance, a quick touch on the reply button, and my activities resume.

To better understand why the Watch is useful to me, maybe I should give you some background on how I interact with my smartphone. Basically, it is in my purse during the day, and on the charger on my desk during the night. I never wear it in my pockets, and that is probably the reason why I am always missing phone calls. Well, no more. My wrist now "rings", and messages are a quick glance, a quick touch on the reply button, and my activities resume.

Speaking of activities: those three rings are really working for me - or rather, I work for them. I'm almost obsessed about getting my daily movement, standing and exercise minutes in. And now, with the addition of the Waterminder app, I added a 4th ring which is water consumption (which I really, REALLY have to take more seriously).

So there you have it. I'm still wearing it, I'm still liking it, I'm still super happy I have it. Could I live without? Most certainly. But do I think my life has gotten better with it? Absolutely.

In the end, I won't recommend the Apple Watch to anyone without first asking them about their habits. Chances are the watch will not be useful to a lot of people. People who wear their phones in their pockets, for example. The phone has a step counter, a buzzer for messages, and all that jazz. Or people who don't care to stay connected, and are glad that they miss calls and messages (yes, people like these actually exist). For those, a simply activity bracelet/step counter would work just fine. For me and my habits, the Apple Watch now has officially achieved "where have you been all my life?" status. ___

For a small photography studio like mine, I need to keep the overhead down to a minimum. However, I did like the idea of appointment booking. So I looked into all the options, and I found that +SetMore Appointments works really well for my purposes. 
I have installed buttons on my website so the clients can book appointments straight from there via a java applet, or I can book appointments for them directly on the web app. That means, they get an automatic email confirmation of the appointment, and a reminder email one day prior to the big day. 
I'm very pleased with the system, and it has a great mobile companion app. It's slick, works really well, and it's free. What's not to like?

Ok, I need some book recommendation for this summer. But not just ANY. I would like recommendations for books about hauntings, demonic possessions, crime novels who aren't a long series of books (they have to have a beginning, a middle, and an end), about monsters and other weird mysteries. I'm not about slashers, zombies, guts and gore. And if you can spare me romance, I'd be grateful. 

So if you have read a book about these subjects recently and you care to share, please let me know.
