Andrew Clifton-Brown (ACB)14,284So, 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 Lane4,005Did 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.

Manspreading, it's an international thing. I got with a middle seat on the last leg of our journey to Italy. I was seated next to a tall guy who just could not keep his legs on his side. Luckily there was an empty seat in the row ahead, next to +Capin Chip so eventually I just move. We had a late lunch/early breakfast and crashed early from travel fatigue. We shall explore Rome today. We are just a stones throw from the Spanish Steps. The weather is lovely and our hotel is beautiful. Breakfast on the roof in a few hours.

I shared some in progress pics recently of the figures that went on this cake. Here are a couple pics of the process. First I work with the client to decide on a basic design. Once the design is approved we moved forward with making the cake. We may vary a few minor details along the way, such as the design of the teapot which had to fit on a 5" topsy turvy cake so it had to be scaled down a bit. I'm pretty happy with the way this turned out and the client was quite thrilled.

As most of you know I've been bitching about t-shirt companies like
+Teefury (why the hell won't they pop up in a list anymore Google) and +Qwertee for the past year and a half or more. Specifically because they were trying to pass off Junior tees as women's sizes. Can you imagine them getting away with trying to sell boy's shirts to men? They got away with it in large part due to women not saying anything because the tees not fitting made us feel fat and dipped into our self esteem issues.

Although I loved the tshirt designs I decided I'd had enough and wrote to several of my favorite companies and told them flat out that I was mad as hell and I wasn't going to take it any more. I encouraged my friends to also write to them and invited them to boycott them with me until they did something about.

One time when my nephew, Elvis, was 3 or 4 he was acting up at the dinner table and finally my brother got fed up with him, picked him up and carried him toward the bedroom. Elvis got very upset and started yelling, "You just don't....you just don't take a kid away from dinner!" He was so appalled and adamant in his stance that my brother began to think maybe the kid was right, maybe you shouldn't deny a kid his dinner. Eventually the boy calmed down and was allowed back at the dinner table but the whole episode was hilarious.

Love you always, Elvis. Miss you terribly. <3

+Capin Chip bought me another pretty ring yesterday at Ponte Vecchio. Today we climbed to the top of the Leaning Tower which was a bit more challenging than the last time I walked up it many years ago. I'm sure Chip will make a much more detailed post soon!

Here are some pics of our Tuscan Wine tour yesterday with a stop along the way at Monteriggioni which is a walled city/fort that was erected to protect the city of Siena from the Romans. The wine tour was amazing. We sampled ten wines plus truffle oil and a gorgeous aged basalmic.

We made it to Florence and went straight to the Il Volo concert that evening. It was a lot of fun and we had great seats. Yesterday we went to the Galleria dell'Academia to see the David. It's not the first time I've seen him but it was just as awe-inspiring. We wandered through a street market, ventured into a huge meat and cheese market and had more fabulous food.

Today we are going on a Tuscan wine tour with a private car. My father is giddy!

Yesterday my friend Cristina gifted us with a guided tour of Rome. We got to take in a lot of history, had a wonderful lunch and last night we had a lovely variety of tiramisu from Pompi which is well known for their delicious tiramisu. We had banana chocolate, hazelnut, classic and strawberry as well as pistachio. I really loved the strawberry.

Today we are headed for Firenze and tonight we see Il Volo in concert at the Nelson Mandela Center.

We had a great day in Rome. We spent the morning wandering through the Coliseum and the afternoon wandering through Castel Sant'Angelo. Tomorrow a friend has set us up for the day with her friend who is a tour guide!

Manspreading, it's an international thing. I got with a middle seat on the last leg of our journey to Italy. I was seated next to a tall guy who just could not keep his legs on his side. Luckily there was an empty seat in the row ahead, next to +Capin Chip so eventually I just move. We had a late lunch/early breakfast and crashed early from travel fatigue. We shall explore Rome today. We are just a stones throw from the Spanish Steps. The weather is lovely and our hotel is beautiful. Breakfast on the roof in a few hours.
