Jack C Crawford83,338Here's a modest 300 person circle for those that are new and want to get a jumpstart here on Google+  AND, I did add myself, because I wear Google Glass and the circle looks cooler with it.  lolRequested by my good friend and circle member +Islegrooves Sherrie 2014-01-17 23:40:32300442443CC G+

Theres a little something here for everyone. Theres a few OGplussers here that have been on G+ since way way way way way back in the pioneer days of 2011 then theres plenty of new people, awesome people post tons of cool stuff like really really really killer places to eat, drink and be festive all over Southern California.

Dan Soto56,122Long Overdue Circle ShareFirst, and foremost, this is not a scientific endeavor.  Most of these were chosen by the "relevance" factor that Google uses but I would not have included them if they weren't relevant to me.  The others were hand picked from the rest of the people I'm following that are either;a) interesting to meb) loyal engagers on my postsc) friendsEither way, you can't go wrong with this circle.Add it now to spice up your streamNote: Many of you already have many of these people in your circles already.  Add it it anyway as there might be a few that you don't have.Also, there is to be no "butthurt" over not being included in this circle.  I'm the only one allowed to that :)ENJOY!2013-01-18 00:46:3115036922CC G+

Jane Ellen0Name this circle what you want, but I pulled people from across the board, and pond.  If you're new to G+ or bored with your stream you'll find some G+ heavyweights here, and some folks that I feel lucky enough to have discovered. Well, they liven up my day anyway.  I have hung out with the majority of most in this circle.  They are artists, scientists, writers, singers, social media experts, teachers, IT people, and I don't even know what all else.  But they are engagers.  And they all have their own sense of self.  They post what they like in their own stream.  Which is how I approach mine.  If you like it, you engage and you keep reading.  If you don't, you uncircle and move on to someone who is more suitable to your tastes.  If there is one common thread to all of them, I tend to err on the side of sarcasm.  Keep that in mind.  Happy reading.2012-08-28 17:47:441019412CC G+
Jack C Crawford33,668Top 500 Profiles of people who always have something beautiful to say.  (Well, not always ...)  There are two buckets in this circle.  Those who interact with me all the time ... and those who I follow just because I think they are amazing.You can't miss by adding these folks.  Worst case, if any of them misbehave, you can uncircle, ignore, block, report, etc.  Gosh, that sounds really harsh ... I really doubt any of these wonderful people will require such action.Just add them.  Most of them are truly amazing ... ;-)2012-08-06 04:35:125011074477CC G+
Robert „Big Daddy“ Mosko1,841I don't normally share circles.  However I was planning to share this circle tomorrow for #circlesharefriday  .  I will not be available tomorrow, but this is a good thing for me.This circle is highly diverse in views and humor.  It is full of wonderful people who share and engage.  I hope this circle will enhance your G+ experience as much as it does mine.2012-06-21 20:21:462431205CC G+

Sebastian Hiernaux1,505Ever since a popular G member added me to a circle he later shared I have seen my followers grow 100x ... so I'm now doing the same thing.Yesterday I read an article that indicated that G+ gets really interested when your followers reach around 300 ... so I want to help other people enjoy this network as much as I do by sharing and hoping you add them to your circles.This circle I am sharing is full of funny and interesting people... its my "personal favorites" circle.Hope you find it useful...2012-06-05 16:00:01362516CC G+
Kevin Medeiros3,101Yeah yeah, this is a huge circle to share. These guys and girls are a bunch of geeks. Geeks of what type you might ask? Well, of all sorts..you'll just have to find out. I've gone through and weeded out some of the inactive users myself in order to stay under the 500 person limit. These guys make up a big portion of my stream and never fail to keep me informed about awesome shit.You may also be asking why I didn't sort them out into sub-geek categories? The answer to that is because I'm not your damn secretary :-)Just check'em out :)2012-05-26 19:20:2947711714CC G+
Chad LaFarge9,931Top 50 Most Relevant, and Why You Don't Need All of ThemFor whatever reason (obvious for many, not-so-obvious for others), Google has determined that these are the most "relevant" people in my circles. Undoubtedly it factors in interactions and shared circl...istas (?!?).These are among the people from whom I look forward to hearing and seeing in my stream daily.Do yourself a favor and screen them in a new circle rather than adding them to a circle that already has your important engagers.I say this because I don't want you to be stuck with people from whom I like to hear in case you happen to learn that I have terrible taste in content. Add the circle independent of any other, and go look at the posts from its members. Remove those that don't post content that you find compelling.Do this with any shared circle you add.Your stream can only be as amazing as you allow it be through your efforts and exercising your judgement, not simply accepting someone else's shared circle blindly.I hope this is helpful.2012-04-19 04:45:2350501CC G+
Lee Smallwood8,954Want to share the 2nd of 2 circles of Engaging People here on G+ I love their content, the way the engage and I recommend you step and say Hello to them :)Have a great weekend all :)2012-04-13 17:23:5433731622CC G+
Scot Duke2,583Share My Circle The Best of G+It's time again to help out the Newbies to G+ by giving them a leg up on finding the people in G+ who are interactive, responsive and down right COOL!I hear there are a few million more here since my last so I am sure they are probably sitting there scratching their head with a look of confusion on what is going on. I remember when I got here, that was my thoughts. Wish there had been someone then sharing quality Circles.So here is my Inter-circle of real live people. If you are not in this circle here might be why.To be placed in my most cherished circle of friends you have had to: -Be someone I know personally-Have at least made one comment made to any of my posts, -Have a nice headshot photo,-Have a full profile-Make a number of original posts-Understand how social networking works.Sounds simple doesn't it! Well it is and how you should look to building your own circle. Here is your start. If your current circles are not producing the interaction you are looking for you might need to flush them and start over with this one.Warning: If you load this circle into your account to start spamming these people I can only warn you these people are well trained at using the Block for Spam button. Plus, there are a few people from G+ hidden in this circle who are very proud of their creation and I have actually witnessed them removing Knuckleheads like a bouncer at a bar.Have fun socializing..it will pay off ten times more than just gawking or becoming a Knucklehead.2012-03-20 12:07:3131326715CC G+
Rehan Ahmad8,835Best Engagers on Google✚having less than 4k followers; chosen by communityI had no idea to discover such wonderful folks in such huge numbers who are worth getting attention and exposure to the community on G+. Here is link to the original post on which people proposed their best Engagers: https://plus.google.com/u/0/101130656339668533532/posts/f7ou4Hrtp9FWe want to spread the message of equality and friendship, we want to make this space wonderful for everyone. Best Thing about this circle is that it does not contain any of the influencers, but each influencer taken deep interest in making it happen. So have fun with circling all new amazing Plussers and rock your stream.People who should be included but are not included unfortunately +Susan McIntire +carolann O'Connell +Andrey Vlasoff My Apologies: If I have no included the people you had proposed in this circle because their followers were more than 4k limit.

Dan Leveille23,227Google+ Users the Community Couldn't Live WithoutA Community-Curated CircleWith suggestions from hundreds of people, these are the Google+ users who the Google+ community "couldn't live without." Their content, personality, and overall presence on Google+ provides irreplaceable value to other members of the community.Two days ago, I asked the question: "Who are 3 Google+ users you couldn't live without?" After hundreds of comments came in, here's the Circle that everyone created!Original post: goo.gl/P4D8HFull details: Every [valid] suggestion was added to this Circle. Suggestions made on reshares of the original post were included unless the post was not share publicly. When people suggested more than three members, I chose the first three who were not already included in the Circle. Self-nominations were not included unless another user recommended that person. Pages were not included unless they represented a single person (for example, celebrities). I may do a Page version soon!#circleshare #circles #publiccircles2012-02-26 01:19:07305565373CC G+

Billy Wilson30,060Interactive People on G+: Part OneYesterday I asked people who they thought was the most interactive person they have found on G+ and I got a lot of responses. Since people from many different communities responded I ended up with a sampling of people from across a lot of the G+ world. Since there was interest in having a circle created of the people nominated in my threads I made this circle. I'm still working through all of the nominations and will have another circle ready once I'm done working through my threads. You can still nominate people on this post: https://plus.google.com/105706178492556563330/posts/bTjXGJcRNcK The original post hit the 500 comment maximum.

Virtual Brain Trust Cooperative440Virtual Brain Trust Cooperative Circle. This is being posted mostly as a thank you to the people who have followed our new Google+ page. In the brief time since we set this up, more than 400 people have added it to their circles and are following our posts. Clearly something we are doing has inspired, or at least intrigued, a good number of people here. We really appreciate this vote of confidence and will continue to explore ways we can use a bit of the extra brain power we all have to help each other. These projects will be announced on the VBT Google+ page, so be sure to add that to your circles if you have not yet done so, and also on the network we are building at http://VirtualBrainTrust.org. Some of our more advanced projects will be lauhched on that site, so please consider adding a profile there if your interest is more than casual. It is possible this may be one of the last times we are able to share this circle - we are getting close to Google's 500 member limit and shared circles have limited utility for what we are doing anyway. Still, there are some great people to follow here, They all believe in the spirit of cooperation and have offered to at least consider using a bit of their extra brainpower - their skills, intelligence and creativity to help other people. If you are looking for people who are both smart and considerate, this is a great place to start.2011-12-09 16:58:254291798CC G+

A Very Special Birthday for Me

As we can all testify, social media can be a blessing and a curse.  One of the inevitable outcomes of putting yourself "out there" on social media is that you will attract the occasional troll (or ogre), and you have to deal with people that are emboldened to share far more than anyone should in any setting!

However, one of the benefits is that you get to interact with some really great, thoughtful, and intelligent people who you look forward to seeing posts from or interacting with on their posts.  In addition, since most of us share our birthdate in our profiles, we are greeted by an avalanche of birthday wishes in our stream.

This birthday is a special one for me because it is one that was not clear I would have back in March of this year.  Many of you know the story, but I had a heart attack causing full cardiac arrest. I... more »

A Very Special Birthday for Me

As we can all testify, social media can be a blessing and a curse.  One of the inevitable outcomes of putting yourself "out there" on social media is that you will attract the occasional troll (or ogre), and you have to deal with people that are emboldened to share far more than anyone should in any setting!

This birthday is a special one for me because it is one that was not clear I would have back in March of this year.  Many of you know the story, but I had a heart attack causing full cardiac arrest.  I was in a coma (induced) for a week and took another week to recover in the hospital before coming home.  I was NOT ready to stop having birthdays at 47!

So - this is a very welcome birthday.  No grumbling about "another year closer to 50" or "I am old".  There is no complaining allowed because the alternative is not having any more birthdays to spend with my family and not waking up to a social media stream of well-wishes.  50 or 150 - I will take the former over the latter right now!

Thank you to all who have sent me birthday wishes today and who may send them later in the day.  I will try to respond to all of them individually, but I wanted to let you know that I am thankful for all of you!___

Good to hear some sense spoken about the Ferguson case.  Rather than let emotion rule the day, look at the facts and don't assume anything at this point.  Everyone seems ready to convict the cop right now...whatever happened to actually letting the facts play out?

I was shocked to see Michael Brown's mother on TV this morning respond to the question of how can we get peace in the streets of Ferguson?  Her answer was "justice", but just what is her definition of that?

Little League World Series

Every year I love even more watching these kids play and just watching the joy with which they play. I love MLB (most of all my #Dodgers), but the money and the fame can get in the way of the fact that one gets to play a kid's game FOR A JOB.

The kids are playing purely because they love the game and they have a blast - win or lose. I love watching them dance in the dugout, grin when they make a good play, and celebrate a dinger to center. It brings back memories of the fun I had playing Little League and the pride I had watching my boys play when they were younger.

If you have a little time this weekend, watch a few innings of these kids working hard and having fun!

The Gene Simmons Makeup Tutorial

As a follow-up to my post about KISS on Monday, I heard today that Gene Simmons participated in a makeup tutorial with his daughter Sophie for Cosmopolitan.  He actually does the makeup himself on tour and he sat down with his daughter and showed all the steps using his daughter as the model.  I thought it was cool for Dad to share the 40-years worth of tips and tricks he has acquired!

Come join us over on the Deep Tracks community where we talk about cool stuff like Gene Simmons spitting blood and fire!

A Monday KISS

For some reason, I have been hearing KISS pop up on my playlist and on my radio more often.  They were one of the first rock concerts I ever went to in the 70s - I was a huge fan.  From the point I bought KISS Alive (and then Alive II), I was focused on seeing them live just to see the theatrics of their show.  I wanted to see flashpots, explosions, the flying drum riser, and Gene Simmons spitting blood and fire!  I got the chance in Phoenix, AZ in 1979 - and it was everything I ever wanted it to be.

KISS has never been accused of being deep songwriters or having intricate musical interludes, but they knew how to pump out great straightforward rock anthems.

I dug into my old KISS album collection looking for a good album track that was not necessarily played on the radio that much.  Their 1977 album Love Gun had a lot of good tracks and one of my favorites was Christine Sixteen.  The subject matter may be a little sketchy these days, but hey...KISS was always a little sketchy!

Enjoy this live version of Christine Sixteen from KISS!___Come join us over on the Deep Tracks community where we talk about cool stuff like Gene Simmons spitting blood and fire!

Carbeque Today

Apparently, people saw this guy texting.  He blew the light at our building entrance, lost control when he hit the brakes and crashed into a light pole on the sidewalk.  He got out, but right after the car caught on fire.  A pretty uncomfortable conversation is coming up with his insurance company...but I am glad he is OK.

A Diversion to....KANSAS

Maybe it is a guilty pleasure...but I am a fan of Kansas.  While they always kind of existed as the bastard stepchild of prog rock in the 70's, they obviously has some big radio hits, albeit that they have been overplayed and therefore almost become parodies of classic rock playlists (much like the far too overplayed Stairway to Heaven).  However, I still enjoy me some Point of No Return and Carry on Wayward Son and I am not afraid to admit it....

I was listening to their first live album called Two For The Show in the car this morning and I was reminded of a great track off of their very first album.  Kansas actually had some amazing non-radio hits that really flexed their musical chops, showed off their prog tendencies, and highlighted some great songwriting on the part of Kerry Livgren and company.  Journey from Mariabronn became a staple ofthe... more »

Fleeting sense of control...

At work, I have days where I go home and think "I have so much to do I don't even know where to begin!".  Then there are the days when I feel that I have a handle on every task and every project.  Today is one of those days, but I know it is fleeting.

How do you handle those days where it seems your list is growing exponentially and you feel buried?

The best statement in +The Matt Walsh Blog response to a very nasty letter..

This is what I hate about progressivism.  It's such a dry, gray, joyless thing.  It leaves no room for anyone to have an actual identity of their own, it doesn't illuminate.  It doesn't encourage open expression.  It simply turns the lights off and tells everyone to shut up and play along.

Like others here, I genuinely like +George Takei  and I think he is funny.  However, he is WAY off the mark on this statement.  It is factually and objectively incorrect and he should be called out for it as he chose to use his bully pulpit of celebrity to spout off on the topic.  An organization does not have to be a church to hold religious beliefs.  There are hospitals (they are corporations or owned by corporations) that will not perform abortions as it violates their religious beliefs.  The Hobby Lobby issue is really no different.  Just because a particular birth control method is legal does not mean that a private entity like Hobby Lobby should be forced by law to pay for its use.

About That Stupid George Takei Meme
Preston does a great job of providing all of the detailed information that I'm too lazy to write. Great overview of the rights involved in this SCOTUS case, and a refresher course about the rule (not law, HHS rule) about abortifacient coverage that was never in the bill as passed by Congress, would never have passed Congress, and made this entire thing an Obama created offense, for which he got smacked down.

Absolutely a great quote. Good intentions from the government scare the hell out of me. Reagan said it well... "The scariest words in the English language are 'We're from the government - we're here to help.'"

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of power. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."

The expected hyper-ventilated response from the Left.  What they fail to grasp is that this does not prevent anyone from buying anything they want - it just says that their employer doesn't have to pay for it.  Some health plans cover mental health issues - some do not.  Some cover orthodontia - some do not.  Hobby Lobby never paid for this in the past and now the Left acts as if something has been taken away.

Just another example of the trend towards extremist eradication in the discussion of diet and nutrition.  Elimination of gluten from your diet - unless you are in the small percentage of the population that suffers from Celiac's disease - is at best foolish and expensive and at worst nutritionally harmful.  A balanced diet is the key to nutrition.  It is time to smack down this foolishness...
