Andrew Clifton-Brown (ACB)14,414So, photowalks mean different things to different people.  For me they are an opportunity to meet new people.  I don't really make an effort to snap anything on a photowalk because I am just too busy gassing to people on the whole!  We'll meet at London Bridge overground station outside the M & S there. So, if you fancy a meander and a chat, we'll probably end up at the bar in London Bridge somewhere after a few hours, and hopefully get a few tables, quaff some beer and fast food and chat for a few hours before rolling off home.UK Photowalk Project - London Bridge Walk2014-05-31 13:00:009

Jo Lane4,049Did you not mark your calendars? Shame, shame. Last year +Scott Cramer dared me to sit under my desk at work and share a picture; I did, he reshared and viral chaos ensued ;P It was so much fun that we decided to make it an annual event, so get under your desk (or kitchen table or coffee table), take a pic and post it on G+ with the ridiculously long hashtag #InternationalTakeAPictureUnderYourDeskDay ! And, mind your noggin. Last year some companies even got their whole office involved; along with kids and pets - sitting under your desk is for everyone ;P It's Friday. You aren't really working anyway.

I began my work life in England where I had 30 days leave a year plus personal days plus bank holidays. People planned their holidays months in advance and paid for them throughout the year and went away to lovely places. For the first several years we had a bar in our canteen. Until American business practices shut it down and we had to toddle off to the pub which was far more dangerous and involved crossing a major intersection. Heh.

When you left for holiday no one pitched a fit or acted like the world might come to a halt. The philosophy was that if you died they'd figure it out and why should holidays be any different. 

When I got my first job in the US and they told me I'd have 10 days holiday, I laughed. I honestly thought they were joking.

"We HAVE to teach our daughters that they are not beholden to men like this. That they don't have to marry a man their father deems 'acceptable' and then stay married to that man long, long after he proved himself UNACCEPTABLE," Kirkland said. But it was the final line in that post that has inspired memes, hashtags, and hundreds and thousands of likes: "As for my girls, I'll raise them to think they breathe fire."

I began my work life in England where I had 30 days leave a year plus personal days plus bank holidays. People planned their holidays months in advance and paid for them throughout the year and went away to lovely places. For the first several years we had a bar in our canteen. Until American business practices shut it down and we had to toddle off to the pub which was far more dangerous and involved crossing a major intersection. Heh.

When you left for holiday no one pitched a fit or acted like the world might come to a halt. The philosophy was that if you died they'd figure it out and why should holidays be any different. 

When I got my first job in the US and they told me I'd have 10 days holiday, I laughed. I honestly thought they were joking.

I've been seeing these two cakes all week and I wanted to share something with you. I know both of these bakers. The cake on the left was created by +Shawna McGreevy of McGreevy Cakes. She's a super sweet woman who often shares/sells cake tutorials. People have been asking her all week about this other cake which appeared on Cake Wrecks. Shawna had this to say:

"I'm being asked by... everyone, what I think about the recent posts/articles about my Elsa cake and another baker's Elsa cake being compared. (And if you don't know what I'm talking about, you're better off. :) ) So, I'm going to tell you what I think, though you may not love it, and then be done.

I know, guys, that no one means any harm, here. It's just that... well... this is what I think- I think someone tried. I think someone had the guts to go for it... even when, I'm sure, they didn't know if they could pull it off. They took the chance anyway and put themselves out there. And maybe it didn't come out they way they were hoping, but it's their WORK. 

I look at it this way... what if it was done by one of my kiddos, or someone in my family who I love dearly? What if they really wanted to try this out, and were scared to, but decided to do it anyway, knowing they had to start somewhere? Would I be ashamed? Not in a million years. 

'Cause at the end of the day, they took a risk, and instead of hiding in their safe little comfy box, they stepped out of it for a second and gave it a go. And THAT'S what I think this life is all about.
I've had epic fails. LOTS of them. Am I hoping they're never put in the spotlight for all of the world to laugh at? Yes. So am I loving that my photo (which clearly has it's own serious faults) is being used as a comparison to someone's who decided to step out there and give it a shot? Naw. Not really.

Again, not wanting to be harsh here guys... just wanting to keep it real. <3 "

There is something else you should know. In response to Shawna's lovely note, the baker of the cake on the right responded with this:

"Thank you so much for this post ,as you most know I am the baker of the other cake . The cake was made for Icing smiles ,for a really sick little girl. Yes I know the cake looks a HOT MESS ...... BUT here is the back story ...I had just lost my grandmother I had been with my Mom all day comforting her ,I came back to work on the cake I HAD 2 hours to get it done and delivered ,I was so upset I remember asking for prayer on Facebook to get it done. As I leave to deliver the cake it started raining cat's and dog's as I was taking the cake out of the truck the top of the box blows back and the cake get soaking wet . So the photo that was posted was after I had wiped her face with a paper towel . Yes I've seen all the really mean comments ,some even posted by some of my so called cake friends that know it's my cake . At the end of the day ,I DIDN'T let that sick baby down l gave it all I had to give ,so make fun all me all you guy's want if that is what you need to do to feel good about yourself. I posted the photo of the cake because that is what icing smiles ask you to do . Sometimes I find being in the cake world like being In high school, most of you hide behind your computer's being bullies and you wonder why your kids are out of control. I have alot more going on in my life then cake ,my big sister was just diagnosed with breast cancer 3 days ago so the mean cake post really not a priority in my life right now . Thank you to the ones that do understand that is cake was made with all I had that day ."

She wasn't paid for the cake. It was something done from the heart for a sick child at a very low point in the baker's life.

Nuff said.___

What I love about Ann's tutorials is how she breaks things down into easily manageable segments. I think she provides a great starting place for newly budding cake artists.

I'm playing in a WordFued tournament and today I had the opportunity to play all my letters for a bingo.

Me: The word is clitoris but hey, a bingo is a bingo.
Chip: Good thing you're a woman or you'd never have found it.

Bada bing, bada boom!

I know some of you enjoy seeing the process of making gravity defying or just fun cakes so I thought I'd start a new collection with some of my finds.

As mentioned in the comments to the video...

Now AIDS is the SECOND worst thing to happen to Freddie Mercury.

Warning: It's difficult to unhear.
