Georges Pauly14,521Thomas HawkShared publicly  -  30 Aug 2013 2500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 2 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.  Yesterday I shared last name A-Da.  This one , part 2 of 5, today, represents Da-Ho.  I'll share the remaining three next week.  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 parts 3, 4 and 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/17ujpn*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.2013-09-01 19:56:06482204CC G+

Stephanie Calahan513FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 1 of 4My goal was to crowd-source a list of women on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and , I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1310 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone (this is shared public too).If you're getting a notification about this it's because you've been identified as a Fabulous Woman on G+ that is Actively posting and Engaging here.  See the bottom of this message for the original post where names were collected.I thought you would want to know that you have been identified as someone the G+ community should connect with!  I don't send out notifications unless there is 100% warranted.#Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.What 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+".* 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 to 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 our brilliance.Original Post: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/HHzp7g9aW9t2013-05-08 19:56:31324401632CC G+

They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 circles. Share!

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 #handpickedcircles   #sharedcircles #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle2013-03-03 09:34:25319013CC G+

Thanks for the memories; it’s been a great year. Add-Engage-Enjoy & Share#Centurions2012-10-31 14:46:22101113935CC G+
Sean Cowen25,503The "I'm Putting You On The Spot" CircleSo -- I put this post out back in March and made everyone work hard at thinking about this. Some superstars did make the list and some of the popular folks; but I decided not to do any censorship of the recommendations. It wasn't strictly adhering to the rules - but I have a soft spot for the rule breakers sometimes. ha! This is one amazing list and the vast majority of people here are either under-circled, or new to G+, or just haven't had champions to put their names forward much. [Some people may be superstars now as the G+ world moves fast! -ed.]This was the original question posed...Can you tell me the names of two people who you feel have not been recognized enough on G+ yet? Two people who may not be a part of any "in-crowd," and who very few people may know about - but people nevertheless who you think are way beyond cool and have the most incredible things to say?I've never shared a circle before on Google+. I've given some recommendations here and there - but now I want to see what you think - and I want to create my FIRST EVER post-driven circle. So --- I know how hard this is, and I'm asking a difficult question.CAN YOU GIVE ME TWO NAMES (and only two names)?Original Post: https://plus.google.com/103333429938529668020/posts/4Z8sMpuQ5ej2012-09-16 18:30:3722948329CC G+
Nina Pelletier11,765I have been requested to share my writers circle many times over the last year, but I never felt right doing it. After 2 emails I received yesterday asking so kindly that I share it yet again, I figured it's time to do so.I have over 500 writers in my writers circle because, hey, that's why I'm here right? But sadly only 500 of them can be shared at once. So you won't get all of the wonderful writerly people I have met on this lovely world we call Google+, but here are 500 of them.  Enjoy and share.If I've missed any writers, please feel free to add them in the comments below.Thank you to this awesome community of literary quirkiness and genius. ♥  #writershelpingwriters   #writers  2012-09-12 15:13:0750121411CC G+

Gene Bowker39,058How to have a better stream - Part One #StreamCircle  Someone recently mentioned to me about how they couldn't seem to find good photography in their stream.Well.. here is my way to help that.These are active photographers who have a variety of styles and cover everything from point-and-shooters to some of the top pro's on G+.  I've been through each one's stream and they all can offer you something to make your stream better. Say howdy to them and see if your stream is not a more visual place.Like the circle.. feel free to share it and help share some great photographers.I'll share the 2nd 1/2 of this circle in the next few days.2012-08-13 23:27:51351946663CC G+

Fabio Bucchieri29,201Hawkea's Friends v1this circle (that is the first I have ever shared and also the last so dont worry) includes all the wonderful people that have been contributing so far to +Hawkea's friends  and +Hawkea's Charity Book projects. If you want to know more about it just click here: https://plus.google.com/b/100519235758823334026/100519235758823334026/aboutThis is an extraordinary bunch of great people/photographers that I commend without reservations to anyone.From time to time I will be updating this circle with the new gorgeous people that have decided to participate in the meantime.You do NOT need to do anything to be kept in this circle (so no need to share, plus, comment, etc. unless of course you want to, that it is always nice :) ).If you have been participating in the projects above (by meaning of image contributions, serious reshares, constructive comments, etc.) and I have missed you and you want to be included, just drop me a PM or a comment here.2012-07-10 09:48:089816311CC G+
Jeff Sullivan131,363Daily Photography Themes on G+: Curators Circle v1.0Daily photo themes can be a great way to share your best work, or to find creative work by others for enjoyment and inspiration.Lists of the daily themes, with notes on any participation details, are maintained by the following people:+Eric Leslie - http://ericleslie.com/guides/daily-photography-themes-googleplus/+Kol Tregaskes - http://bit.ly/kolgplusphotodailyhashtags+Ray Bilcliff - http://www.trueportraits.com/daily-photo-themes.htmJust Include the theme like today's #SelflessSunday in the text of your post, and others can find it in searches and you can enter that tag in the search box at the top of the page to find photos by other contributors.  However, that only works if many people using a theme are looking at (and commenting on) each others' posts.  On G+, like in so many areas in life, you get what you give.I've created two circles: one containing theme pages and this one containing theme curators.  Theme curators are among the most active photographers (or photography lovers) on G+, but if they're actively curating their theme, visiting most or all posts and interacting with many (comments, +1s, shares), they're also among the busiest, especially as the G+ community grows.  Keep your expectations of them reasonable and you won't be disappointed.  The golden rule, karma, "what goes around comes around"... take responsibility and be the interaction you want to see.  As people come to recognize your comments and posts, you'll get to know people and develop circles of community members to interact with on G+.This is intended to be a comprehensive, inclusive circle, so if I've missed a theme curator please let me know, thanks!2012-07-08 15:27:4433222730CC G+

I mean, you've seen circles for "Most interactive photographers", The Kick Ass Photographers", "The Inspirational Photographers", "The best Nature and Wildlife Photographers", and the list goes on.This post contains a list and a circle. The circle contains the 500 most followed photographers with less than 60'000 followers.  The list is a list of photographers that have more than 60'000 followers.  Most people on the list have over 1 million followers because they are on the G+ list of suggested users (commonly referred to as the SUL).  But who are the most followed ? Here is an updated version of a circle  I shared a few months back. I have tried to find all of the top photographers and add them to this circle. Obviously the last 50 places probably change daily so this is the list as I checked it before sharing. The number of followers needed to be on the list has changed a lot over the last 4 months.  Back in February you needed  13'117 followers, in mid-June that number is around 17'200. Why is this circle of interest ? Well, because it wasn't chosen by me or any other individual. It was chosen by the G+ community. Some of the people in the circle are great photographers, some are great at being interactive, some are just plain good at marketing themselves, and many have a combination of the above. But, in the end, the G+ community has chosen them as the top 550 photographers to follow.• Why is xxxx not on the list ?  Photographers that haven't been active on G+ for more than 6 weeks weren't included.  Several photographers that only post sporadically and generally less than one post a month aren't included• If you find someone on the list that you don't really think is a photographer, send me an email and / or a private post and I'll look into removing them or leave a comment below.• If you know of someone that I missed that has more than 17'200 followers, let me know and I'll add them to the list for next time.• You could call this the User's Choice Award circle because people on G+ have chosen to follow the people in this list and circle. Why share this circle ? Photographers were among the first people to embrace G+. Over the last few months I have seen photographers add significant numbers of followers and fall in over all standings. Wordy people and celebrities are overtaking photographers. +Trey Ratcliff +Thomas Hawk and +Lisa Bettany are the only photographer2012-06-14 13:42:29500244215241CC G+
Thomas Hawk2,473,6682,000 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+Part 2 of 4 (Ev-La)Part 1 of 4 (A-Ev) here:  http://goo.gl/Z333gThis is the fourth time since joining G+ almost a year ago that I'm sharing my photographers circle.  I shared it with 500 photographers, 1,000 photographers, 1,500 photographers and now 2,000 photographers.  I have to break my circle up into four 500 photographer circles as that is the G+ limit.  Each day this week (Mon.- Thurs.) I'll share a different circle.  Today is the second circle and includes photographers with the last name's Ev-La. A few notes about these circles.  I always get hated on when I share them by people.  Inevitably if I include 2,000 people, I will leave 50,000 people out.  This is not intentional or personal.  This circle is not "the best" photographers on G+ or in the world.  It doesn't mean if you are not in my circle that you are not a "quality" photographer.  This list is simply photographers that I've stumbled across for whatever reason over the past year and have chosen to follow their work.  In some cases I've gotten to know the photographers in this circle personally -- through photowalks and trips, hangouts, in real life, etc.  Many of these people are or have become my friends.  Most of the photographers in my circle though I don't even know.  They are just people whose work I admire and want to consume -- I hope many are future friends.  :)I use some objective criteria with this circle but I use a lot of subjective criteria too.  This is, afterall, my own personal circle that I look at and +1 from every single day.  My aesthetic taste and personal preferences may be very, very different than yours.  This is ok.  Art is subjective.  That said, here a breakdown of my own preferences and biases that influence who I add into my circle.1.  I like people who are active on G+.  If you haven't posted one of your photos in the last month you probably are not in this circle.  I use a script to uncircle inactive people regularly.2.  I like photographers who mostly post their own photographs.  I dislike clutter and "dumb stuff" in my photographers circle.  Excessive reshares, circle shares, memes, gifs, youtube videos, posts not about photography, web links, etc. make me uncircle or move people to a different circle.  I also like photographers who regulate how much of their photography they post to their stream.  I don't want to see 50 shots in a row of someone's vacation.  I think about 5 photos max a day feels about right to me.3.  *Controversial* I dislike signatures and watermarks.  You will find photographers in my circle that use them.  It's just a bias, not a hard and fast rule.  I mostly want this stream to be as watermark/signature free as possible.  I totally understand and respect your reasons and decision for using watermarks/signatures.  I hope you equally respect my decision to not want to consume photos mared up with them.  Please don't turn this into a discussion about watermarks/sigs, I've spent the last 10 years thinking heavily about this issue.  It's just a personal preference and bias.4.  I like people who are active, positive, helpful, enthusiastic G+ community members.  I dislike people who are rude, mean, complainers, trolls, harrasers, etc.  If you say mean things to people, about people, about their art or their work I don't want to follow you.  I'm fine with debate and disagreement.  It should just be done respectfully -- there's a huge difference between respectful disagreement and rude behavior.  Not only will you not be in this circle if you are rude, I'll probably block you too.  I want to surround myself with positive uplifting people. 5.  I like people who directly post their work here on 2012-06-05 16:20:03500152107307CC G+

Shay Dougan1,567A couple of days ago I told people I wanted to create a Quality Not Quantity circle. This would ideally consist of G+'ers who don't necessarily post every hour or every day, but who do post things that are interesting, fun, thought provoking, etc. They don't feel the need to flood the stream just because they can, they post when they have something worthy of sharing. The response from everybody was great! Thank you to all who contributed!As I said in my original comment, I don't think you have to put 30 messages up a day to be considered an active, engaging person on G+. Just be part of the community when you can make it here, and have fun. Isn't that what this is supposed to be about? Community? I'm excited about all the new people (to me) who have been suggested to this circle. I can't wait to get to know them and see what they give me to think about. I invite you to share this circle of Quality as recommended by G+'ers. As always, I recommend that you check out their profiles and their posts to see if they fit what you enjoy reading and seeing. Let's get to know some people we might not have come across otherwise. :)2012-03-23 21:27:25230381531CC G+

"How is the birdhouse coming along, Charlie Brown?"

"Well, I'm a lousy carpenter, I can't nail straight and I always split in the wood...
I'm nervous, I lack confidence, I'm stupid, I have poor taste and absolutely no sense of design... So all things considered, it's coming along okay!"
~Charles M. Schulz

It has been a wonderful time posting birdhouses with +lynn langmade . It was one thing we had in common. Then, after the last birdhouse, we found out that +Cheryl Cooper also loved birdhouses. So tonight, we all three are posting our birdhouses.

Please visit their pages now if you have a moment.
Birdhouse love to you both... :)

You know how to find me...

I've always told my friends here on G+ if you need me, tag me and I'll come running, if I don't miss the notification.

However, tonight I just wanted to share with you my thoughts:

Have you ever had a day where you had it all planned out, then in just a few moments everything changes?

Today, I simply asked for help. By the end of this day I can truly say I laughed, cried, gave love and received loved.

It was a day full of experiences that I call living life to the fullest!!

I hope that your day was filled with joy and love!

Many thanks to you and A little reminder

A reshare of a photo back in January... I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has added me lately. I have not been on G+ as much as I would like to be. Honestly... work and life seem to have me moving quite quickly. But I appreciate all the friends I have made and hope to post more recent images again soon. Originally this was for #FromtheCarTuesday curated by +J. Rae Chipera .

Remember... never let the storms of life hold your attention because they soon will pass!

Don't forget that YOU make a difference

We all make a difference no matter where we are!!!
(Reread that line three times if necessary!!)

These last three days I was reminded that no matter what each day holds I make a difference. I've listened to authors and speakers from everywhere imaginable. In addition to that, I got to use a tablet that I hadn't seen yet and Google Chrome Book. I could write here for quite some time about which authors and presenters made a difference to me. Perhaps some night I will. However, I also saw many tired and frustrated people as well.
(It wasn't all a bed of roses.)

But beyond that, I was able to give of myself so many times the last few days. It was a realization that I am always giving and sometimes must slow down. Each time I slowed down to visit with someone I could listen to or laugh with, I was... more »

Looking at the share what's new box..

I could share so much but honestly I'm rested this morning
I'm about to run necessary errands and just rest as much as possible today. I'll be gone to a conference for a few days so I will see everyone upon my return whenever that is. I truly love Google+ but now it's about back to my real world. I know you understand.

If I've missed you these last few weeks, it isn't that I don't care or think of you. It's just how it is.

Hopefully I'll have some wonderful thoughts and images to share upon my return. Google on!!

Good afternoon/evening/morning G+:
I have a problem and am looking for help.
Like many others, I have been unemployed for 1 1/2 years now and have been actively seeking a JOB (average of 5 to 10 resumes sent out daily). I am running out of benefits and will have no income within the month.
I am not looking for nor do I want sympathy, just gainful employment.
Here are some of my qualifications:

Employee management
Budgeting and financial analysis
Point-of-Sale solutions
Food service regulations
Marketing and event planning
Inventory management
Personnel training and mentorship
Labor cost analysis
I am willing to relocate almost anyplace
All I want is the chance to work again.
I am sending this out public, so as to reach as many people possible who may have a job or who may know someone that does.... more »

G+ Missouri Photo Walk

Mr. +Don Spenner, Co-Chair of the Missouri Photo Walk,
with photography equipment in hand! Rain and wind kept
some of the walkers away. Photography was moved
indoors on several occasions, but all attending had a
incredible time with lots of silly laughs! #MPWC

Smile...

Change is inevitable
Things have changed all day long
I was tipped off by an unnamed source that G+ changed today.
I'm just smiling now and wondering what will they think of next?
It's like there a whole team of them working together!! :)

Hope you are having a wonderful day/night!!

Blessings to all

Easter Sunday means a lot to me for many reasons.

I had a very wise Grandmother that taught me not to debate religion or politics. So, I will not. :)

I am thankful to be able to share in this special time here with you all!
I truly hope your Easter has been lovely!

I have been blessed by meeting Monique and Sonja. They have brought laughter and smiles and we have enjoyed this theme since people began sharing their Easter images.

We will continue to watch for any more Easter images!

It has been a pleasure co curating #EverythingEaster with +Monique Yates and +Sonja Miller Williams .

Always...

Whether I'm here or not
I haven't forgotten all the wonderful people I have met here

This one bloom is dedicated to all the friends that have encouraged me in spite of my absence.

Many thanks and have a lovely day!

Letting it go...

Let me just start by saying I don't remember having a rougher month than March in quite a long time. I don't want to talk about it. I am not dwelling on it because it was March, it's in the past. I am going forward and thankful it is the first day of April!

Keep on keeping on!

~April Hugs to all!

Positive

I'm positively sure I missed several days on google+ again except random plusses when I caught them.

I'm positively sure I have worked on my circles and still miss people. (I promised I wouldn't talk about circles anymore so you never saw this)

I'm positively sure that I'm an allerholic (yes, they're bad this year for me and it hurts to look at the screen for too long)

I'm positively sure that when I feel better I'm going to enjoy seeing what people have been posting.

I'm positive that isn't going to happen tonight!!!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful St. Patrick's Day Eve!

When I was a little girl mom used to call me "Miss Why" because I was very curious about everything and I always asked her why this and why that. Now that I'm older my husband calls me "Madame J'ai oublié" (Mrs forgetful).

When I watched Finding Nemo I immediately identified myself with the character Darcy Dory and I was so excited to "find" her at the London Aquarium and I had to take a picture. I guess she liked me as much as I liked her. :)

"short" protein food posts

Nuts & Seeds
Protein Content: Nuts, 3 to 7 g per 1/3-cup serving, depending on the type (peanuts and pine nuts have the most); Seeds, 2 to 5 g per 1/3-cup serving, depending on type

Why You Should Eat More: Almonds, walnuts, pecans, pistachios, cashews, and pine nuts are all good vegetarian protein sources. "Try a sprinkle of chopped nuts on everything from oatmeal to yogurt to salad, and nut-based dressings are healthy and delicious," says Blatner. On the seed side, Blatner recommends pumpkin, sesame, and sunflower. "I particularly like seed butter, such as sunflower seed butter, on toast with an apple for breakfast," she says.


Beans & Lentils
Protein Content: beans, 12 to 14 g per cup cooked; lentils, 18 g per cup cooked

True friends stand the test of time

+Torre Conklin is a best friend I've had since I was 7 years old. She is vivacious, caring, and one of the most precious people in my life. She is returning to see me tomorrow and bringing both her children with her. Spencer had just finished his wrestling match and was starting to feel my camera presence. But he endured for his mother and I for one last shot. I thank them both. I have been thankful for a delightful friend like her on so many occasions.. (As she figures G+ out a bit more, you'll see her on your pages and see what I'm talking about.)

I could have cropped out the water bottle, cord, etc., but I think it shows just how dedicated a mother is. She is a strong, caring parent, has raised two fine children, and meets their needs seven days a week.

Share, +1, and comment if you vote yes to an ability to report harassment.

Women, are you tired of reading weird harassing comments on your posts? Think that the internet is a jerk factory, where if you block one another pops up? Do you wish that the community discouraged harassment? Then you need a harassment reporting tool (not available on all networks).
Men, are you sick of losing women to Pinterest and Facebook? Wish they had a safe place to post publicly? Then you need a harassment reporting tool (not available on Google Plus).
Anyone, do you wish that you could do something more than blocking when a bully or a creep posts something that promotes discrimination, bigotry, racism, hatred, or harassment toward you or others? Then you need a harassment reporting tool (if you want one on your social network you are going to have to fight for... more »

POWER FRIDAY

Okay sugar dumplins .... if anyone knows me well enough on here, you know I love pictures of power lines and power towers. While they're man-made and so unnatural, I find a certain mystique and elegance about them. We rely on them to light up our world! With that said, I noticed there was no theme anywhere for these electrifying structures. I've been mulling over this idea for a few weeks now to just start a hash tag and see if anyone else wanted to jump in. I know +Jakob Nilsson would be interested as well as +Jason Kowing and +April Gamel.

There have been numerous folks in my stream who have posted these beauties but I do not remember everyone. Sorry! So starting as soon as I post this and continuing each Friday, whoever wants to participate please post your own picture of power lines that day. Any and all kinds are welcome. I am... more »

As I was strolling in Parc de Belleville to get some fresh air away from the computer, I remembered +Rainer M. Ritz's #BenchSaturday , a daily theme I had not contributed to yet and thought it would be a great place to start. So, here it is, my entry for the #creative366project is half a bench ;)

Just being honest...

I believe I have missed out on 99.8% of what has happened on Google these last two weeks. I caught news, worked and made it to a handful of pages and rarely got to watch the stream or any stream.

If you have circled me lately, thank you. I don't post here every day, but if I'm feeling it and must post I may post three things in one day. (If you have circled me and I have missed it when you did, sorry.)

I have two shares and a post I'll do tonight, but now I must run.

Anything new that I missed that I must see or know about? I'm counting on you to fill me in on what has happened, should you choose to accept this mission. :P

As you know, you tag me and I'll be there as long as my notifications work. I missed one this week that I was informed of late last night. Don't you just love how your google... more »

In 3, 2, and 1

"How is the birdhouse coming along, Charlie Brown?"

"Well, I'm a lousy carpenter, I can't nail straight and I always split in the wood...
I'm nervous, I lack confidence, I'm stupid, I have poor taste and absolutely no sense of design... So all things considered, it's coming along okay!"
~Charles M. Schulz

It has been a wonderful time posting birdhouses with +lynn langmade . It was one thing we had in common. Then, after the last birdhouse, we found out that +Cheryl Cooper also loved birdhouses. So tonight, we all three are posting our birdhouses.

Please visit their pages now if you have a moment.
Birdhouse love to you both... :)

So there are just too many reasons I have to post this tonight. I won't begin to
explain them all because it is late....

Let me just say... it was so tempting I couldn't say no!

What do you think?

Perhaps it is just an old item to you, but I think it could be used for a selfy, don't you +Jordan Oram ? Your wonderful selfy had me wanting to post this for you. I took it at least a week ago, but just made some time tonight.

+Jan Jensen has been so great to post snow pictures for me since I can't seem to get enough around here, so thanks to him as well.

Sometimes I wonder...

I will submit for #fromthecartuesday for +J. Rae Chipera , in case she wants this one for next week. :)

Then, for today, which is +#Window Wednesday I'll submit this window I took while in the passenger seat. Thanks for curating this +Simon Kitcher +Cheryl Cooper +Jason Kowing +Jules Hunter and Martin OBER, which I realize I need to meet. Hello +Martin OBER ... just added you to my circles and it is going to be a pleasure meeting you.

Thanks to all the curators!!
