Jeff Smith61,427Welcome to The Selfie Sunday Project for April 5, 2015 We are back! First thing you may notice is "Selfy" has become "Selfie", just a change to keep up with the more recognized spelling of selfie. A general theme for this week is *New Beginnings* , it's Spring and Selfie Sunday has returned so it seems to fit. If you can't stick to the theme no worries either, since we are freshly back and running any selfie you take is fine.  Please read this post for the guidelines and FAQ for Selfie Sunday. http://goo.gl/SKnkZ8 Your photo can be taken from Mar. 30/15 before the event up until 8:00 AM EDT Monday Apr. 6/15. Older photos posted will be removed from the event. Please only post one photo to the event and that photo should ideally be taken the weekend or the week prior to the event.

Olav Folland40,362So, my employer owns a cabin in the Truckee area, and believe it or not in the twelve-ish years I've never actually used it.  What better way to kick it off with a photowalk in the mountains?   I can't promise snow, but it's the shoulder season so either way it shouldn't be very crowded.  It also doesn't look like the Kings fire will affect the area so there should be plenty of scenery along the way. We can accommodate 15 people, maybe 20 if folks are willing to bring their sleeping bags.   Lodging in the cabin is *free*, and there are also hotels in the area for those that would rather have more creature comforts.   Either way, it should be an awesome time.  I'm not super familiar with the Donner/Truckee area to be honest, but we're researching and also hoping to crowdsource some venues as well. I'm generally inviting my "North Bay Photowalks" circle, but feel free to invite anyone else as well.  Cabin space is first come, first served however. edit:  This is timed to coincide with the full moon (which is on Thursday) so not so good for star trails, but fun for night-time landscapesLet's go to the Mountains!2014-11-07 12:00:005

Megan McGuire2,732Get excited for the  G+ 2 year anniversary photowalk!. For the Sacramento photo walk we are starting outside of the Railroad museum located in Old Sac. We will work our way around this charming old west styled area for a for a couple of hours. Then we will most likely grab some refreshments around lunch time and discuss as a group if we would like to go into the  RR museum, head toward the capitol where we can shoot both inside and out, explore some more of old Sac, or decide we're too tired to go on.  Please send this along to anyone else you think would be interested.  Pack sunblock and water, it's going to be a hot one Saturday!G+ 2 Year Anniversary Photowalk Sacramento2013-06-29 19:00:009

Managed to get the first coat of paint on the bathroom walls today.  Go me for actually getting something done!  I might even get the second coat on this evening, but I'm not holding my breath :P

If you're interested, the color is this: http://www.valsparpaint.com/en/explore-colors/painter/color-selector.html?colors=VR021D but it's a shade or two darker, at least from how it looks on my monitor.

I got mad decorating skills, yo.

A looooong time ago, a bunch of us photography geeks held "smackdowns", a weekly event pitting two photographers mano y mano with a surprise theme.  Contestants and themes would be posted on Sunday, and 3-5 photos would be posted on Friday (I'd move this to Saturday) along with a bunch of light-hearted trash talk for the amusement of the masses.  The photos would be juried by three anonymous judges based on both technical and artistic skills (i.e., sometimes creativity beat technical merit), and the results posted by one of the managers along with some choice quotes from the jury.

Anyway, I've been thinking about bringing this back, but it's not something I can do myself.  I'd like to gauge how much interest there is, and if there are a couple of people out there with better organisational skills than I have to help me out.

This album was my first - the theme was "light" (or something like that) and includes both entries, and the almost-rans I considered.___

Since I have a little (rare) free time this weekend, I'm starting to put some collections together.  First up: food stuff.  I've gone back about six months, and may go further as time permits.

I started putting together a food collection, and came across this.  I figure it's worth a re-share, even if some of the nuances are hard to explain.

I can't even begin to say how awesome this is.

Two ginormous grilled fajitas:
Rotisserie tri-tip with a tequila marinade, and a medley of onions, peppers, and tomatoes roasted on the grill while the meat was resting.

Apparently, I'm to make this again, though next time I'll get 6" tortillas, rather than use what I have laying about.

I'm probably making way too much food, but I've been marinating a tri-tip in tequila for a couple of hours, and I'm either going to have some seriously awesome fajitas, or we're going to be making Emergency Pasta for dinner.

I was talking to my mom the other day, and it made me realize that my rice cooker turns 35 this year, making it older than some of my friends.

My parents bought it in late 1979/early 1980 when we moved to the Philippines.

So, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (the Boston Marathon bomber) was handed the death sentence yesterday.  Truth is, it really doesn't mean anything other than a "title".

While I believe that there are things one can do that are so heinous that one forfeits their right to ever walk among humans (and an argument could be made that their acts show they aren't human), I've come to oppose the death penalty, because it's a freaking joke, and a waste of money.

I'd have to look up some more Federal stats, but there are currently ~70 people on Federal death row.  Since 1998 when the the penalty was reinstituted, there have been three executions: Tim McVeigh, Juan Garza, and Louis Jones.  So, the chances of Tsarnaev ever actually getting executed are currently about 4.2%

In CA it's even worse.  Since 1978 (when the death penalty was reinstituted here) there have been 13 executions.  The last one was in 2006, and the average time on death row for each one executed is 17.5 years.  To maintain the current death row population of ~700, California spends about $184M, or $242,000 per year on each inmate above what it costs to house an inmate in the general population (universally put at about $47K).  (On a side note, the ACLU's death row numbers are far lower, but seem to be housing & security, excluding additional court/appeals costs)

So yeah, basically we're wasting a lot of money on nothing.  Whether or not you agree with the death penalty, a national discussion needs to be had on what it means, when (or if) it's applied, and if it's going to be applied, what constitutes an appeal, and what just ties up the courts in frivolities.

Caution: Humorous Gore

As far as I can tell, this was put out by the German Forklift Association (or something like that).  It starts out a bit slow, but develops into this awesome crescendo at the end.

I bored mom on her Mother's Day call, so dad and I started talking, and we both want to pick up our project again, which is finding homes for computers where the recipients can't afford computers.
It's been on hiatus so far this year due to time and budget, but last year we found homes for about 15 boxes, mostly laptops. No, seriously.
So, we're talking about picking it up again. My SIL knows a bunch of people in OK where even a $300 PC is way out of their budget, and here I'd love to help a local friend get some tech in the hands of some of the kids at her school.
Basically, if you've got some old, useful, kit that you or your company is dumping, I'll pay shipping to get them here if need be. Desktops, monitors, and especially laptops are most appreciated.

The only basic requirements are that they're Vista+ and can be upgraded to 10, and capable of running LibreOffice and Chrome. Basically, let kids do their homework and upload it to the internet as the current trend seems to be.
PM me
I'm really serious about this. If you can donate shipping, that would be awesome, if you can't, I'll cover it as I'm able.
Caveat: this ain't a 501(c) thing. This is me and my dad trying to help people out of our own pockets. If this instead inspires you to do your own thing, We'd appreciate knowing about that too, just for encouragement.
And seriously, I'm not asking for money for any of this. I don't really want money since that makes things complicated. I will accept most parts(especially monitors!), and would appreciate help with moving things across the country. At the end of the day, I'm just asking for your serviceable retired computers so we can get them in the hands of people that need them. That's all.___

If you have a standard gas range, here's a simpler mod that will make your stir-fry life infinitely easier.

If you don't have a gas range, ask.  Maybe I can still help.

If you have a standard gas stove, here's how to hack the flame ring you got with it for maximum effectiveness.

If you don't have a standard gas stove, hit me up in the comments, and I may be able to give you ideas.  My credentials are that I got a 45-minute education from a Chinese guy that does nothing but sell woks.

Defined and refined my tomato curry recipe from a little while back.  This one is equally nom with chicken, or as  vegetarian (which is saying something from my carnivore butt).

Share and enjoy!  All the recipes on this website are my creations, free, because I can :)

Dayum.  That's all I can say, really.  There are a scant few contemporary singers whose voices are just simply weightless, and carry you along.  She may well have replaced Sarah Brightman as my second-favorite voice (after my ex).

Padilla's back-story is equally amazing, but I don't want to interfere with the music, so I just say that's a quick Google search away.

Admittedly, I'd never heard of +VALUES.COM but I just saw one of their TV spots, so I just have to say how awesome they are. 

They're neither religious, nor political.  They don't want your money.  They just want you to take their messages to heart, and pass them on. (edit:  Artists donate songs and talent, TV stations donate air time)

That's it.  Watch their PSAs, and think about how you can be a better person, and if it inspires you, share it to inspire others.

This particular one is relevant to all us social media denizens.  Our on-line relationships are awesome, and we get to have friends across the country, and around the world.  But, that can make it easy to forget to stop and listen to the people sitting next to you - friends, spouses, kids, etc.  Just look up, and listen sometimes.

edit: got handed this on Friday afternoon.  It's all conceptual but I have to think about how I'm actually going to do the design work at the same time.  Brain is rather cooked, so no Selfy Sunday for me this week.

I worked with this guy, Charlie Butten, for a couple of years back in the late 90's at an intercom company, and he was a freaking God amongst analog engineers.  I think he was one of the founding fathers of the place and they mostly paid him for his brain - there was more than one occasion where we quite literally woke him up to ask a question - which he'd think about for five seconds or so and give you an answer.  And he was right 100% of the time, and his answer would exceed any expectations that you would hope for from the circuit.  That company still sells one of the intercom boxes I did the layout and mechanicals for, because the noise floor is -80db (basically no matter what's going on, you can be understood over the intercom without any distortion).

Eleventy trips to the hardware store later, and replacing everything that doesn't actually involve cutting a hole in the wall, the Office has a shiny, refurbished, and working sink again.  Still need to update the electricals, and paint the trim, but at least it's a functional bathroom again.  That's all I'm doing this weekend though - last trip to the hardware store one of the guys said "welcome back!" :P

sigh after all that, and a ton of elbow grease, I can't finish installing the sink  because I have the wrong hoses.  But, what's one more trip to the hardware store between friends, right?

At least I got the bit where I had to shut off the water to the house done when no one was here.

If you're interested, the color is this: http://www.valsparpaint.com/en/explore-colors/painter/color-selector.html?colors=VR021D but it's a shade or two darker, at least from how it looks on my monitor.

Youtube ProTip:

If you want to queue a YouTube clip to a specific point, add "&t=1m5s" or whatever to the end of the URL, where "1m" is the number of minutes, and "5s" is the number of seconds.  Thus, "&t=1m5s" (without the quotes) starts the clip one minute, five seconds in.

Want to push my buttons?

Tell me that people shouldn't do self-exams for early cancer detection.  

Ladies, check yourself out, once a month about one week after the start of your period.

Gents, pick a day and check out your nads.  Check your your moobs too, because guys can get breast cancer too, but no one checks.

All y'all, if something seems funky, tell your doc.  That saved my wife's life, and it could save yours.  Plus, finding something before you're symptomatic is infinitely better than waiting - waiting may well be too late.

And yeah, I don't fucking care what the NIH says.  Yes, it can mean stress and false-positives.  On the other hand, self-exams almost certainly saved my wife's life, and I know she has several friends where doing so would have made treatment so much easier.

Woohoo!  Three more copies of the Journal have gone to good homes this month :)

If you don't know what I'm talking about, I put together a daily journal for Kat to track her fibro, and other symptoms last year, and I liked it so much I thought I'd put it out there for other people to use.

It's a six-month journal, with daily entries for stuff like diet, exercise, meds, pain levels, etc. intended as a tool you can take in to show your doctor (and monitor yourself).  

If you have one pretty-please leave an honest review on Amazon.  That not only gives me warm fuzzies, but it also makes it easier for people to find.
