Lady Fran W8,662✰ *Embrace your inner rainbow* ✰ Late last year Melbourne hosted the Colour Run. It's now been announced that we'll be at it again in March 2015.  *Tickets on sale NOW!* Become a VIP and you can score a sweet deal!  www.thecolorrun.com.au/#vip   _No actual running required!_ Bring the kids. Bring the whole family! Don't bring the dog though. Please feel free to share the event. Note: this is not an ideal venue for photography. As much as you dearly want to capture the colour and fun, the dust is the natural to your expensive gear. You also don't really want to be carrying heavy gear for the walk. Bring a cheap point and shoot, bring your phone, whack everything in zip-lock bags and just have fun!Colour Run - Melbourne2015-03-01 08:00:004

Preheat oven to 350 degrees 1 c granulated sugar (brown sugar also works well in this recipe) 1/2 cup brown rice flour 1/4 cup cornstarch 2 T sweet rice flour 1/2 cup cocoa powder 3/4 tsp baking soda 3/4 tsp baking powder (I use double acting) 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp xantham gum whisk all dry ingredients together in a large bowl, then add wet ingredients 1 egg, lightly beaten 1/2 cup non-dairy milk (use anything except coconut milk -- it will change the texture of your cakes) 1/4 cup vegetable oil 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 1/2 cup hot coffee Portion into a standard muffin tin, filling each well no more than 1/2 full.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely before icing. Ganache: Place 1 package Enjoy Life chocolate chips (283 grams) in a medium bowl.  Heat 200 grams coconut milk (1/2 tin) to a boil, either in the microwave or on the stovetop.  When just boiling, pour over the chocolate chips, cover and let stand for 10 minutes.  After 10 minutes, whisk the ganache together until it is smooth and glossy.  Let cool at room temperature for about 15-30 minutes if you are going to use it as a glaze. OR for 60-90 minutes if you are going to whip it and use as a frosting. Fill a piping bag with the ganache and pipe onto your cupcakes!!! .... now go and share one with someone you love :)Valentines Chocolate Cakelets (Gluten-free and Dairy-free!)2013-02-12 02:00:0027

Rant ahead

Finding appropriate creative commons music for videos is worse than looking for a needle in a haystack! At least you know what the needle looks like!

For example: Probably some amazing artists on SoundCloud ... but you wouldn't know because they are never tagged appropriately and you have to have some idea of what it might be called to even start the search.
Or, you randomly pick based on a filter in ccMixter only to find that none of it is what you want. UGGHHH.

I hope that Australia's editing has been opened or at least improved.
It has been that we had no access to it at all. And then, if you submitted an edit but made a mistake, there was no way to update it before it was reviewed or approved.

Citizens of the world, lend us your local knowledge. Starting this week, people in all 248 countries/territories around the globe can submit edits and add new places to +Google Maps → goo.gl/mX6r92___I hope that Australia's editing has been opened or at least improved.

While I like the premise of this, they would be better bringing back shared locations in Google Maps.

This allowed me to share my location with loved ones so they could always see where I am (if I chose it) and didn't require yet another app.

Via +Moritz Tolxdorff 

An emoji is worth a thousand words

Google Photos puts your memories at your ☝tips and lets you 🔍 and find your photos instantly. But sometimes, you're 🔍 ing  in a hurry: while boarding the 🚋 , carrying lots of 🛍 , or trying to find a perfect photo to match your joke's 👊line. When it’s crunch 🕰 , 🔍 ing with a full word just doesn't ✂ it. That's why we're introducing: #SearchWithEmojis. 

Whether you're looking for pics of your pet dog (🐶) or your hot dog (🌭). Your 🚲  rides under the 🌞 or the 🌟s you gazed under the 🌙. The 🐚 you found at the 🏖 or you favorite 🍐 of 👟s…

Finding your pics is a ☮️ of 🎂. 

📸🔎😋,
Google Photos___hahaha! All the emojis!

For anyone confused about the difference between sharing or moving a post to a collection.

Moving vs Resharing a Post
Tips for the new Google+

A question I get a lot is, "What's the difference between moving a post to a Collection and resharing it to a Collection?"

Moving a post
You can move only your public posts into a Collection. This does not notify followers of the post, nor does it show up in their stream. Also, the original post date stays intact!

Resharing a post
Unlike moving, you can reshare anyone's public post into a Collection. Resharing a post into a Collection will notify your followers and allow you to add another caption or title.

Heads up: Resharing your own posts is great for adding more text to a post, but it can add extra clutter. For adding multiple posts over to a Collection, moving is the best way!

Note: If you aren't able to reshare what someone else posted, they have turned resharing off.

New toy to play with!

Today we’re making the Nik Collection available to everyone, for free.

Photo enthusiasts all over the world use the Nik Collection to get the best out of their images every day. As we continue to focus our long-term investments in building incredible photo editing tools for mobile, including Google Photos and Snapseed, we’ve decided to make the Nik Collection desktop suite available for free, so that now anyone can use it.

The Nik Collection is comprised of seven desktop plug-ins that provide a powerful range of photo editing capabilities -- from filter applications that improve color correction, to retouching and creative effects, to image sharpening that brings out all the hidden details, to the ability to make adjustments to the color and tonality of images.

Starting March 24, 2016, the latest Nik Collection will be freely available to download: Analog Efex Pro, Color Efex Pro, Silver Efex Pro, Viveza, HDR Efex Pro, Sharpener Pro and Dfine. If you purchased the Nik Collection in 2016, you will receive a full refund, which we’ll automatically issue back to you in the coming days.

We’re excited to bring the powerful photo editing tools once only used by professionals to even more people now. ___New toy to play with!

We are deeply saddened and appalled by the bombings in Brussels today, and by the recent violence in Turkey. Our thoughts are with the victims of these attacks, and their families.

To help people stay informed and connected with loved ones, we’re offering free calls via Hangouts, Hangouts Dialer or Google Voice to Belgium and Turkey. You can now make free calls to people on Belgium’s biggest mobile carriers—Lycamobile, Mobistar, Proximus, and Telenet—and to all landlines in Turkey.

Android → https://goo.gl/75u3GM
iOS → https://goo.gl/FDOfq

Additionally, for people in and around Brussels, we have been publishing Google Now cards with transit updates and a direct link to the Government Crisis Centre, and have added those resources on Google for related searches.

I remember when I worked in the gaming industry that partners who bought the game for their child/ren didn't care about the rating. Even if we told them about what was in the game (such as GTA).
At least with the plain covers it might draw their attention to why it is different packaging... One hopes.
