Queenpld Pam Dabney7,540Happy New Years - Happy 2014 ~   Circle sharing instructions: google.com/+/learnmore/sharing   ~Good Day please read,My choice for the first circle of the year is saved here at +queenpld early since the page first began. This circle is filled with Photographers. We encourage you to give their work credit when you share. It would be nice if everyone re-shared to make our G+ plus a very pretty place to be.  Our 2014 Circle Group is in progress.  I have suggestions, because I am still building the team circle. I tried, but I am not a part of the other team. I have a few considerate people who add me +Pam Dabney     and my pages to their circles.  I have many people still in my circles. I asked for mutual sharing here.    2014 Circle Group Suggested Guidelines:** Plus one here,     ** add yourself from here if you are not included,   ** share public from here,     ** & you will be added to a future share from here.    #queenpld2014circlegroup  I realize the page +queenpld   and Community  is small.  We only have a little over 7000 Followers since September, 2013. With you and your circle sharing friends we could grow! Everyone in this circle came here to me for circle sharing. I am sharing you and now it is time for you to share yourself. Thanks and have a great day.  +Pam Dabney 2014-01-02 04:40:1338759837

Thomas Hawk6,156,0612,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 4 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Thus far, I've shared last name A-Da, Da-Ho, Ho-Mi.  Today's , part 4 of 5, today, represents Mi-Sh.  I'll share the last remaining circle tomorrow.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for part 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OCPart 3-5:  http://goo.gl/lyVn6f*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-04 15:53:284916170106

paula contreras2,511The BestBeen on G+ for about a year now and have met some of the most amazing people.  Photographers, Story Tellers, and now some of them friends.Well I don't usually do this, in fact other than sharing a single person at a time, I have never shared a circle.  High time I did and just wanted especially those just starting out on G+ to have a glimpse of some of the best.The best you say, yes the best.My circle count consists mostly of photographers and I am pretty picky about who I circle, but there are a couple of people in this list who are just awesome and appreciate photography so much that you will definitely get shared a lot if nothing else.  These people are also the ones that interact on G+ the most, so if you want content in your stream, than here ya go.So take a look, take the whole circle or just peruse through and find your best peopleShow less2013-06-10 20:31:3220057319

yesterday I was bored.. so I took out my trusty magnifying  glass and camera went out in the back yard to see what I could find.
found some pretty interesting things really...
this is not the best capture.. but wanted to show you the magnifying glass I use.. its a fun  way to get up close and personal.. one could use three hands most times though. its  like a dance.. you move in and you move out.. and that is what its all about.. "smile"..
have a great Tuesday...

people ripping off the old is just not right..

Customer Complaint :: Discover My Mobility, Planet Mobility, Detroit Michigan

I am beyond frustrated. HOW can people, and a company be so terrible to such vulnerable people?

Quick background:

In April 2014, my dad had a stroke. He lost the ability to move the right side of his body, from the neck down. These past few months have been incredibly difficult, as he works his ass off to regain independence. He lives alone, he can't drive and he can't work right now. He's a Vietnam vet, a Harley driver, an athlete, a dad, a grandpa, a friend, a sibling and an incredibly strong person. He's had mixed diagnoses regarding his long term prognosis but, as of right now, he's learning to walk WITHOUT his cane and still working on getting that arm to 'go'. He's made AMAZING progress so far; driving is his next step to independence.

Current Day Story:

SO...my dad ordered a foot pedal from the company, Discover My Mobility. The idea behind the foot pedal is to is to make it so his left foot can push the accelerator and he can drive again. First, he was sent a link to install shady software onto his computer, to get the tracking number of his product; he never received any invoice or receipt. After calling them, several days after the order was placed--they confirmed his foot pedal would arrive within two days. It did and his credit card was charged. The foot pedal arrived missing pieces, the instructions, and not as pictured. (They don't accept returns on products that are missing pieces or instructions. Go figure.) So, I emailed them. They never responded. So, I called. They told me that the foot pedal doesn't come with the base plate anymore and they weren't sure why it didn't contain instructions. The sales rep, Mary, told me she would mail them right out, as well as email them to me. I received a PDF version of the instructions, and a week and a half later--the physical copy showed up in the mail. (The FIRST thing she asked during that conversation is if I wanted to return the product. They mail refund checks monthly, minus a 20 percent restocking fee. She never asked who the client was, or his address--in fact, I had to remind her to ask for my address during the call. It was ODD.) 

Now that we have the instructions--they don't match the equipment, at all. (See photo below. This company believes they are the same though.) At this moment, we are stuck with a 300 dollar piece of metal, and they get all the money. I am working to deal with this but they won't even respond to me. My dad is out the money and set back in his independence. 

I have done some digging into the company and found that this company was spawned from a company called Planet Mobility. Their owner, Michael Woods, was jailed in 2012 for defrauding consumers in this EXACT regard. His primary consumer? The sick, the elderly and the disabled. I am attaching links to articles about him below. I am also attaching links to the Planet Mobility Website AND the new, Discover My Mobility website so you can, clearly, see that they are the same. (I can't find that Michael is involved in the new 'business'. You can, definitely, see that the sites are ridiculously similar. There's, obviously, a connection--even their phone number is the same.)

HERE'S WHY I'M PUTTING THIS OUT THERE...Discover My Mobility is a 'newer' company and they don't have the complaints out there like their parent company, Planet Mobility. They pay a lot for advertising on Google and Amazon, so they come up quickly when folks are looking for equipment like this. Getting this out there, having you share it, me sharing it several times (sorry in advance  ), will help pull THIS story, the REAL story of who they are in search results. I can't even stomach the thought of someone else getting ripped off like this. It's not fair, or right. I'm tech-savvy--this isn't difficult for me; most of their victims are NOT and they prey on that fact. Discover My Mobility WILL get busted, again, which will kill their search results--but, until then...there's this.

If you have ANY thoughts as to what we can do next--please let me know. I've got this, emails out to the company and I've contacted local reporters who worked on their story last time.

If you feel compelled to share this, even just for a little, please do.

Thanks for listening to this vent and thank you, in advance, for your help.

 I look at the sky so blue, sun shining so bright
Spreading heat and happiness with its blinding light
Long blades of grass swaying in the gentle breeze
Dancing in rhythm with so much ease
Look up at the trees hearing the singing of the birds
Happily chirping singing at ease without words
Sitting here holding my knees to my chest
Watching and hearing nature at it s best
I ponder how Nature could get it so right
When we have let Natures lessons get so out of sight
We hold our anger, let our happiness slip away
Making our survival a struggle each and every day
We have forgotten the little things that mean so much
Like the laughter, the freedom, and someone's loving touch
If only I could make people stop, watch and listen to Natures tale
We could all sit back happily and our world would not be so frail

In each others existence in harmony we could all survive
I'm sure like the sun, wind, tree, and birds our lives we could revive
If only we let nature take its course in each and every one of us each day and night
As I sit and ponder how Nature got it so right and we lost all sight.

for years now I have managed to save said tree.. but I fear I am running out of reasons or excuses that either my better half or my son will tolerate .. you see .. one has to bend when walking in my back yard in order not to be clonked upon ones head with a branch..  at any given time... and as the fruit  falls to the ground...its a mess to rake up..  ( in truth this fake fruit really is a mess to clean up )but as I said earlier. . the birds have a feast with it.. and what in the world is wrong with bending anyway ? I ask you..___

This is the Event for our June Self Portrait Challenge: Summer! Use your self portraiture powers this month to show us a very "Summery" photo - what is that? Well, that's up to you to interpret, so get creative. :)

Here is where you enter your ONE Self Portrait with a "Summer!" theme. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST June 30th, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. (The dates on the Event are truncated, but you can submit a photo anytime, all month long.) Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified.

Inspiration
Moderators of the Art of Self Portraiture Community are not eligible to win, but we'll be putting our photos into the Event in the hopes that you'll be inspired. If you have questions or need help, please pop into the Community http://goo.gl/M7XTQ and ask away! We have categories for questions and discussion and are happy to help with anything.

Good Morning!

I saw this beauty on a walk last week at Duke Gardens in Durham NC. Which happens to be one of my favorite lunch time spots. I really like roaming around the grounds and seeing what's new since the last time I was out. I am seldom disappointed.

Have a great day!

Cheers,
Wade

Poem by Paul Holmes, UK
Safely nestled
Like a crystal ball
On a baize surface,
It gleams, invitingly.

Sunlight catches its surface
And it winks back at me
As if to say:

“Study me closer
For a little while
And you won’t
Be disappointed.”
