UK floods
I used the image above as many around the world know this as a beautiful windows desktop background, but Llanrwst here in North Wales, and many other parts of UK are in severe flood. :(

I am lucky, Dolgellau flood defences are doing their job so far.

Struggling with my Samsung S6 camera, but i think this came out ok.
Shame the photos I actually need often look poor, badly lit and even grainy.
Must make the effort to get to grips with manual settings.

Do you get paid holiday/vacation time?
I know it is time for a holiday when I finish the day with an ever growing "stuff I couldn't get done" list.

The heart is willing, the mind is absent, the legs are achy! (But less than 7 weeks until I get 10 days off, hurrah!)

It is something we Brits take for granted.
How much time off do YOU get?

I mainly use my statutory 28 days as a week off in spring, a week off in autumn, the rest I use one day at a time for appointments, activities with the kids, and Dental appointments :D

Living here I can treat a restday as holiday.
:)

In school we learned of Marie Curie, but there were so many more...

" Female scientists have contributed to some of science’s biggest breakthroughs, from unraveling the structure of DNA, to discovering fission, to mapping the ocean floor.

So why don’t we know their names?
This week on Science Friday, we’re celebrating science’s unsung heroines. We’ll hear about Maria Sibylla Merian, the 17th century “mother of entomology,” whose watercolors documented insect metamorphosis. We’ll also learn about Marie Tharp, whose maps of the ocean floor paved the way for continental drift theory. Plus, meet the women programmers of the ENIAC, the first all-electronic, multipurpose computer."___In school we learned of Marie Curie, but there were so many more...

Easiest way to sort/purge circles?
I have been on G+ since the start (Well week two!), so in four years a lot of people have come and gone.
I have been unable to add anyone for about 6 months and sorting through everyone is tiresome, especially as my browser crashes when I try to at least try to remove the nameless blue heads that have deleted their profiles.

Other than circlescope what do you recommend?

I would probably be looking to remove anyone who hasn't posted for over 12 months.
(I know some who never post publicly so I will have to remember to keep them in!)

Sorry, tech press. Google+ is alive and well.

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/Z6sQ6w )

A chorus of tech journalists this week is saying that Google is phasing out its social network, Google+.

Where did they get this juicy nugget of information? Well, they made it up. And I'll tell you why.

But first, let's look at what the press is saying and compare that with reality:

I have a love/hate relationship with these things.
Love when they go right, hate when they they don't.

Coffee, Alcohol (Whiskey in this case), sugar, topped with cream.

Should schools dictate hairstyles? Does/did yours?
I think I just lost a discussion with my soon to be 8 year old about his hair.
He wants a mohican, I have said no, and the hairdresser also told him he has to wait until he is 16. When I explained schools have these rules as when he is an adult he will have to be smart and tidy, his response was "EXACTLY! childhood is for enjoying who you are!"
Can't really argue with that!

When I was a child, any child with "extreme" haircut, was put in solitary confinement until their hair conformed to the norm.

I admittedly take my surroundings for granted occasionally. Hard to imagine so many people have never seen the sea, a mountain or even the night sky!

This great list reminded us about how lucky we are to be in Dolgellau, and what we may sometimes take for granted, can be breathtaking to visitors.
(Including two guests who had never been outside of London before so had never seen the night sky in all its glory!)
So here it is:

Old photos make me sad.
My grandfather Richard Parker. Turned 16 in 1939 and off he went to war.
Luckily he came home safely, and though sadly he died when I was 15, I have very fond memories of him in my childhood.
Makes me sad to think that once my generation is gone, the photo will have little meaning to people.
I've got photos here of family, of early 1900's that no living relatives seem to recognise. :( 
In the next generation I guess it will be all digital?

Little animals carved into the pew ends.
St Mark's church Brithdir. Wales.
Sadly the church is no longer used for services but is open for visitors, it is a lovely peaceful spot.

Surprised to see visitors from USA, Canada, South Africa and Australia have found it!

That's my duty done.
I've cast my vote and also tried to teach the kids about our voting system.
Surprised to see how many strong opinions the kids had about politics even at age 6,8 and 10.

Does your child REALLY understand stranger danger?
Scary to think about but every parent needs to watch this, and remind their children that "baddies" can appear friendly and "helpful" or in need.

I live in a rural area where everyone knew eachother, but as a kid 30 years ago we were taught to scream, bite, kick if anyone tried to grab us.
But even back then it was the same tactics used by abductors, the favourite still seems to be "come pet my puppy" or "I'm sad, come help me find my puppy" kids seem to forget what they've been taught since they were toddlers.

Anyway, I'm rambling now, just watch. Please.

Remember when your mother would bake a cake, and you were allowed to lick the beaters?

Goes through me to think of it now, how did I never get food poisoning?

I admit I had no idea how much effort goes into a cup of coffee!

Got your cup of morning Joe?

Good. Now sit down and watch this, because I think it'll make you appreciate just how much work goes into making a cup of coffee. 

I'm considering giving home-grown coffee a go when we've moved to the states. Yes, I know that the altitude and weather isn't ideal. But just for fun. Because, I'm the kind of person who likes to know what goes into making or building something. ___I admit I had no idea how much effort goes into a cup of coffee!

Do you use believe it gives you another view of the world?

From the article:
"The results suggest that a second language can play an important unconscious role in framing perception, the authors conclude online this month in Psychological Science. “By having another language, you have an alternative vision of the world,”

I've lost count how many times I've heard British "ex-pats" on visits home complain about how many "immigrants" there are in "their" country.
The mind boggles.
Is it the same where you are or is it a British thing?

In your opinion is Google Plus suitable for giveaways and can you suggest suitable prizes?
Or are they seen as "spamming"
There seems to be minimal local presence on here. So is it a waste of time?
Out of my 30,000 followers, only 20 or so are "local".
Suggestions on the original post if possible please.

What would you like to see as a prize in our G+ giveaways?

Gallon of Beer?
Trooper T Shirts and other merchandise?
Meal for two?
A free nights stay?

We currently have a meal for two prize draw running for our Facebook http://www.Facebook.com/royalshiphotel
And twitter @Royalshipll40
But we are aware most of our G+ fans are further afield so postable prizes and nights stay are most likely!
