Gailen Mapes62,493Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  S - 11 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-04-11 11:01:421997411CC G+

Stuart Dyckhoff25,692February EngagersIt's time to share the circle of those of you that have engaged with me this past month. The number is way down on January but then so has my sharing - mostly due to the weather. All in all, the end result is not surprisingAdding these people to your circles is your choice but I can confirm that everyone in this circle is an engager. What do I mean by engager?Simply that you have left a comment, even if only one word, on one of my posts throughout the past month. And the only way to get in next months is to engage with me. However .... one word comments or simple statements will not keep you in my circles. This is a temporary circle for the specific month and after this post it will be deleted. So far a couple of you have been added to a permanent place in my circles because you have gone above and beyond simple comments and for that I thank you again.Irrespective of your level of engagement I do truly appreciate each and every comment anyone makes. It is this interaction that drives any social media site. Without it, we may as well not be here.So, thank you, diolch, grazi, merci, etc.2014-03-01 20:55:054829110CC G+

Stuart Dyckhoff25,367January EngagersEveryone in this circle has directly engaged with at least one of my posts this past month. This share is my way of saying thank you again for having done so.The only way to get in my monthly engagers circle is to comment on at least one of my posts. A +1 won't do it and it doesn't matter whether I follow you back or not because for at least that month I will follow you if you comment. If you aren't normally in my circles then it's up to you to show me why you ought to remain. That could be by even more regular interaction with me or by sharing your own stuff that makes me want to engage back.Irrespective I do truly appreciate each and every comment folks make as it's this interaction that drives any social media site. Without it, we may as well not be here. Thank you, Diolch, Grazi.2014-01-31 06:53:00811517CC G+

Charles Lupica66,743          Top 1000 most followed active        photographers sharing content on G+                  Circle One: J to ZThis  is the second of two circles,  The first was shaerd on 16 May here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/103236949470535942612/posts/FPsHj9E2QEo.  The circles have been divided alphabetically to help give more exposure to people with fewer followers and shared at different times to help keep down the stream saturation. Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated. It has been two weeks since I announced my intent to update my circle of the 500 most followed photographers on G+.  I decided to do things a bit differently this time and so I'll share the top 1000.   To build the circles and the list I enlisted the aid of  +Bill Wood +Gemma Costa +Jen Baptist +Katy Houlne and +Margaret Tompkins   They built circles and vetted profiles.  My starting point for this was a list of 2000 names generously provided to me by +CircleCount. I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050113386127CC G+
Stephanie Calahan842FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 2 of 4My goal was to crowdsource a list of Fabulous Woman on G+ that are Actively posting and Engaging on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and #Gratitude, I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1311 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone PUBLIC.  I hope you will share it far and wide too.  #Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  Groups 1-4 do not indicate any specific preference to any woman.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.Fabulous Women on G+ Part 1 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/Srvv4xzeuYmWhat You Can Do Now------------------------------------* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name. I've labeled mine "Fabulous Women on G+".  (You won't be able to see the circle on mobile or ipad -- you must be on a desktop or laptop.)  See other G+ quirks below.* Once you've added it, I recommend visiting the stream for this circle and browsing through it to see what you find interesting, encouraging, and enlightening. Then, share some love by commenting, +1ing or sharing the posts of your sisters!* Please note, this is a very diverse group of women.  You're likely to see some people in these circles who will see, understand, or experience things differently than you.  They may or may not share your similar interests.  With that in mind, a few suggestions:     -- If you disagree with someone's views, you can very easily remove them from your circle.     -- Please post public vs to these circles directly.  Each of us has separate preferences on notifications and we want to lift one another up, not bog down notifications.  I hope you all see some increased activity, make some new and inspired connections, and lift one another up as we share each other's brilliance.#fabwomenonG+ #womenongplus #womenonline #womenongoogleplus #women #activeusers #activedirectory #activeengagers #fabfems #googleplusengagers #femalesongoogleplus #female 2013-05-09 17:30:57362381135CC G+

Carter Gibson858,262A circle of change makersGoogle+ has existed for almost two years now. In that time we've enjoyed each other's company, laughed, shared, argued, and supported each other. Most amazing though is what some people have been able to do. The people in this circle have impressed by going way above and beyond, using the network to accomplish something amazing. From new bloggers to new artists, I recommend being connected to every single one of these fanstastic people.I'm sure I forgot lots of people! Who would you add?2013-03-16 19:00:034659742CC G+

Who else stayed up to watch the lunar eclipse? ~ It was a gorgeous clear night sky here, even if it was a freezing 10 F degrees. +NASA  has a lovely description of the red color: "All the sunsets on the earth projected onto the face of the moon."  This was a quick pick out of the 245 frames I shot with my little Canon, hand-held. Other than the crop, it's #sooc . Good night, I'm off to catch 40 winks. :)  Gazing up at the splendor of the night sky and pondering the unfathomable vastness of the universe is a profound experience. I will dream of the stars.

"When I see your heavens, the works of your fingers,
The moon and the stars that you have prepared,
What is mortal man that you keep him in mind,
And a son of man that you take care of him?" - Psalms 8:3

What's my "secret?"
I've had people asking me what I'm doing for my "extreme weight loss." (eyeroll) First of all, there is no "extreme" about it. I'm maintaining an average loss of 2 pounds per week, which is accepted as a reasonable and maintainable rate. Second, there is no "secret." But I'll briefly outline my fitness program for those who care to know:

1. I'm measuring and tracking all of my food and workouts daily, and on a weekly basis I am staying within my calorie range. It takes me about 5 - 10 minutes a day to do the tracking. I am using the free online tracker from +SparkPeople, which I have found to be really user-friendly. I did purchase their Spark tracker to monitor my workouts, and it automatically adjusts my calorie intake allowance to match my activity each day. The tracker also automatically... more »

REFLECTIONS OF SPRING ~ +Steve Shackles knows I've been feeling the winter dragging on a bit. We still have feet of snow in the yard, and everything is white or brown. I'm ready to see some color! So last night he brought me a bouquet of beautiful red tulips. I have them sitting right next to my computer where I can see them as I work. It's amazing what a bit of springtime will do for the winter-worn soul! :)

I can dress up and I can dress down, but for this mountain girl, fashion doesn't get much better than blue jeans, leather, and turquoise. Especially now that the muffin top is almost gone so I can wear tucked in blouses again instead of over-sized tunics. :)

Another great article about body image and health. I was probably born with cellulite on my thighs, and especially in high school, I was so self-conscious about my "saddle bags." The truth is, even at a size 5, I had cellulite. The statistics read that 90% of women are "plagued" by cellulite. I call that marketing BS to sell products that don't work and that we don't need.  If I'm strong and fit with lumpy thighs, so what!

Spring time must bring out the scammers in full force.
I just had this attempted on my cell phone.  When I entered the number into Google, it came up as linked to this scam. 

2014-03-31 20:49:30 (2 comments, 3 reshares, 7 +1s)

Phishing scam using Google Drive (notice sent from local BBB)
You receive an email notice that someone shared a Google Doc with you, which can be accessed by clicking on a link. If you click through, you are taken to an exact copy of the Google login page. 

The look-alike login form prompts you to enter your Google username and password. The data is sent to the scammer's server, but you are redirected to a real Google Doc. This means you are probably unaware anything even happened.

The scammers are using an actual Google Drive account to host the scam file, which lends a legitimizing Google.com URL to their con. Inputting your email and password into the fake form gives scammers access to your Google Drive, Gmail and any personal information stored within.

Tips for protecting your Google account:

1. Look for a phishing alert.  Gmaila... more »

Honestly? or Honestly ... This has been eating a hole in my brain. So which is it?  The context of the song would seem to indicate that the first way is correct. But the musical phrasing of the song makes it sound like the second way is what is being said.  (Sara Bareilles "Brave")

"But I wonder what would happen if you say what you wanna say, and let the words fall out honestly; I wanna see you be brave with what you want to say ...."

When summer gets here, I am going to need a couple of dresses in my new fit size. I did some looking online, and all I have to say is that there sure are a lot of butt-ugly clothes out there. Main choice categories: teen whore, dumpy matron, or throw-back hippie. 

I did find a few styles that I like, I put them on a Pinterest board:

While we had a few snow-free days in Summit County, one of our customers asked us to clear a driveway for them located north of Black Hawk. The driveway is 3/4 mile long, completely unmarked, and the snow was 3 to 6 feet deep.

"Breakfast salad" for lunch - about 400 calories ~ It's a cold snowy day, so I was wanting something a little comfort food-ish for lunch. This combined nice bacon & eggs breakfast food with salad, it was yummy. :)

2 cups romaine & spinach
1 cup sliced carrots
3 slices turkey bacon, crumbled
2 hard-boiled eggs
1 stick of low-fat string cheese, cubed
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard spread, warmed up & drizzled over the top

PLACES I WANT TO SEE: Fly Geyser ~ So this place actually exists in the middle of nowhere in the northwest corner of Nevada. It is a geothermal formation caused by well drilling in the '60s. The rainbow colors are from thermophilic algae. It is on private property and fenced off from access, but apparently it is visible from the road. The photos are amazing, it looks like an imaginary fairyland.

Ugh! ~ I was getting some work photos off of +Steve Shackles' phone and came across a picture he had snapped of Mom when she was in the hospital. I've been a crying wreck. I miss her so much it takes my breath away. I had a friend who lost her dad 15 years ago tell me that her experience was it never hurts any less, just gradually not as often. I think that's a good way to express it. There is no "getting over" losing someone, just adjusting to a new reality.

Wait .... what? 
I know of school libraries where children have to show the librarian a card with their reading level on it before they can check out books. I know of kids excited about books being told, “No! That’s not at your level. You can’t check it out. You can’t read it.”

What actually sustains us, what is fundamentally beautiful, is compassion - for yourself and for those around you ... Get to the deeper business of being beautiful inside; there is no shade in that beauty." ~ Lupita Nyong

WEEK 9 WEIGH-IN AND MEASUREMENTS ~ and a gold star for me! :)
Total pounds lost: 25 (halfway to my May 1 goal, total 55 more to go)
Inches lost: 4.5 off waist, 4 off hips, 1.5 off thighs, 3.5 of back fat
BMI: lowered by 4.1 - still in the "obese" category, but just barely!
Body shape: I am now in the "pear shape" category, lower disease risk, instead of "apple shape" where I started. That means lots of unhealthy belly fat lost.
Resting heart rate: 59, down from 67
