I am honored for you being my friends, so this is my homage to you, but in my unmeasurable vanity I wanted you to know :) #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  As usual, this circle will do a tremendous good to your stream, so it is recommended to be added, especially by non-members and newcomers. If I'm not the best possible host, please forgive me.2014-07-16 11:00:0848420084168CC G+

Dylan Cuffy10,308#WhatLiesAground Well...you've been waiting for days, so I'll give it to you now.Welcome to the final edition of what I now dub the Fab 500! Time to say hello (and happy Easter) to this bunch of fine folks. Eleven here, not the usual ten, because someone's account went bye-bye without a word:• +Louie Baur, +Empire Avenue stalwart; ask for him whenever you want aerial views of your car dealership• +Alexander Moschella, a furry who also thrives on +Fiverr• +Juan Reyes (poet hailing from Texas; not that +Juan Reyes, our last milestone man. Thanks, +A Long!)• +Karen Woodward (yet another lit geek; thanks, +Sarah Brown!)• +Philippe TREBAUL (circled through an Empire mission)• +Domenico Mallimo (who had another milestone of his own—15,000 followers—the other day)• +Chris Voss (who recently gave FB users a compelling reason to switch to G+ or elsewhere)• +Kenneth Burchett (follower #10,000 of mine; also, a spot in my Marigot Magic dedication)• +Ray Hamlet (Dominica's second-best on G+)• +Angie Person (another Caribbean user, this time from Aruba; thanks, 2014-04-20 21:55:195001012CC G+
Dylan Cuffy9,742#WhatLiesAground  (originally posted March 29)Ten more followers till this Fab circle is done.

Mz Maau10,204I rarely share circles, and I regret to inform, this is not the promised #CircleDirk , rather, it's a circle I've been semi-maintaining since last spring, when it was created for +Pierce Arner to jump-start his Plus experience.Today, I'm resharing the current version on behalf of +Søren Dalsgaard Brath, who, like Pierce, is looking for new content for his stream.I figure he and I probably have a chunk of overlap, so I've added a few extras he might not yet know about.Some notes about the curation of this circle:I've tried to set aside those who have not posted recently, and I've tried to only include those who post publicly, or to extended circles.  I may have missed a few, and if you're in this circle and would like to be permanently removed, please let me know.This is not the final version, as I'm not sure such a thing is possible.This circle DOES come with a warning:You will, most likely, NOT enjoy everyone in this circle.  I, like many, have eclectic tastes, and I'm still a bit gun-shy after seeing some of the explosions from last year's crossing of the streams, so PLEASE, edit this circle to your liking with that in mind.If I ping you, you're in the circle.  There is no expectation or requirement to add this circle, it's merely a courtesy ping.  Again, if you would like to be removed from any future circle shares, please let me know.And yes, I promise, I'm still working on the #CircleDirk .Also note:  This is NOT an indication of who I like best, though some are included in this circle.  It is simply meant to be a sample of the diversity I follow.#PinkAndFluffyPersonsOfQuestionableRepute2013-06-22 16:38:09164143576CC G+

Joyce Donahue12,332+Jason Elizondo I hear you are wondering why Google+ --- Here are the top 500 relevant people in my Catholics and Friends circle. Good discussions happen with some of these folks.  Add it and it will add only those you don't already have.  I "live" here too, by the way. All day, all night.  Have 4500+ in my circles, over 12,000 have me in circles. Lots of interaction, made some good friends. Lots of people with shared interests.  I post "public" mostly , but for sensitive topics, only to Catholics and those who are sympathetic, because I got tired of arguing with atheists and haters. I have had occasional small opportunities to do a little "closet evangelization," too.  Enjoy!2013-03-27 00:48:375001107CC G+

Not to be completely insensitive to this whole bullying "crisis," but when I grew up in the 1970's I took it for granted that it was a part of childhood.  Big kids would make fun of me and push me around constantly because of my stature, my strange first name, my shabby clothing, etc.  While I would like to say that I stopped that by being smarter and funnier than them, the biggest factor in stopping it was throwing a wicked punch.  There was no running home to your parents and crying about it back then.  If you did, you would most likely get slapped and instructed to toughen up.

Why is this now such a problem when it has been going on since human civilization?

This is my tin table and I would like to know where I might obtain a Maple Leafs player as you can see in the picture I have a cardboard and duct tape Leaf.  Also I would like to replace the nets and seek advice on leveling the "ice" where the board is sagging.  Also missing are the goal lights.  Those would be great to have but not really an immediate concern of mine.  Dating the game would be of interest to me as well.  It was made by Eagle Toys LTD.  I am guessing that it is from the 1950's.

That thing that extends out from the stands is the puck dropper.  I was confused when trying to assemble it.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated prompt response into the resolution of this matter.

Look what I found in the trash yesterday.  It is an antique tin rod hockey game.  To date it, there were six teams in the NHL...  Why would someone throw this out?  River Forest, IL people be rich.  It is the Leafs vs. the Habs. and made by Eagle Toys, Ltd. from Montreal.

First it was this title.  Then it was Ten Little Indians.  Then it was finally And Then There Were None.  It really is a great book despite the unfortunate titles it had.   It has nothing to do with blacks or Indians.  The original title came from an old British nursery rhyme.

Android advice sought
So the battery drained completely on this phone and we get this now.  I guess she could not be bothered to either write down the password or commit it to memory.  The only solutions I found involved resetting it which wipes the memory.  Does anyone have any ideas that do not involve wiping the phone?

Thanks.

I got in a good zinger at my uncle tonight.  The Kennedy Expressway was completely jammed up going SE.  Natch I said, "Uncle Albert do you think you can drive a little faster?  Did you realize that you are on an expressway?  There is nothing express about the speeds you are driving."

Of course he was not amused one bit.  Still better than the Eisenhower Expy.

What is the purpose of a crawl space?  The new place has one instead of a basement and for the life of me I cannot discern the purpose of it.  There is nothing down there other than bugs and concrete dust.  Sure, I could store stuff down there.  Stuff that I might as well throw out because if I put something in the crawl space that means that I have no intention of ever retrieving it again.

One of my best "memories" is waking up in a hospital.  Bolting up I felt excruciating pain.  I must have vocalized the pain because soon a doctor and a nurse were by the bed.

"Where am I?"

Doctor:  "Just relax.  Is your name Geoffrey?"

"Yes.  Why am I here?"

"What year is it?"

"1993.  Stop asking me questions and tell me why I am here."

I was way off base with "1993."  I later found out that I was in a bus accident, severely concussed, had three broken ribs, and a broken femur.  When I found out/remembered that I was actually in India and not an American hospital with an Indian doctor I was shocked.  Eventually everything came back to me about the wreck.

+Kat H one of the toughest sells I had to do at the food pantry was pushing mangoes on  people.

"Mango?  What the heck is that?"

"It is a tasty fruit grown in SE Asia.  It is good.  Your kids will like it."

"What can I have instead of the mangoes?"

"Nothing.  Really.  Try the mangoes.  They are good and nutritious.  I am sure that your kids will like them.  Give them a chance."

Sometimes I convinced them to take the mangoes, sometimes I did not.  Meanwhile I was thinking that it would be nice if someone would offer me free mangoes.

Part of the volunteer job was going to local grocery stores and collecting food from them that they were throwing out.  You would be amazed at the amount of food that grocery stores throw out.

And some people tried to game the charity by doubling up onthe food.  ... more »

Can these people be more difficult to deal with?  Is that possible?  The lady wanted cable TV.  What comes with our internet service is "basic" which means fewer channels than you can get with an antenna and in standard definition.  So I went to the numerous Comcast sites to see what I could get and at what price.  None of their sites would tell me that basic information.  And really, do they need multiple sites?  To boot it was next to impossible to log onto  their sites.

Plan B:  I called them up, chose the appropriate item on the menu and got another menu.  "To speak with a representative" seemed like the correct choice so I selected that.  And it bounced back to the main menu.  Finally I got through to someone by selecting "Change an appointment" (I had no appointment).  After he explained that I had the wrong department he transferred me to thecorrect one.... more »

Is this really what people think burglars look like?  Here is the story.  When I left for work today I grabbed the wrong set of keys, locking myself out.  When I got back I contemplated what to do.  My first thought was to go in the attached garage, close it, and pick the dead bolt to the house.  That would take me about 45 seconds--  one minute tops.  Then I realized that the windows are completely insecure and went to the windows as they do not even lock.  So I went to the knee high one, raised the screen, raised the window and greeted my dogs.

Why, no.  I did not tell the lady how completely easy it is to break into the house.  Why would I worry her?  We basically live in Mayberry despite being 100 yards away from that big, bad city Chicago that has caught international attention for crime.  There is zero crime here.  It is rather boring I say.

I bought tickets for my father's birthday to see this movie.  He really liked the musical that I bought him tickets for a few years ago.  He could not stop talking about it which drove me crazy.  I kept thinking, "Guy, shut up about the musical.  Why do you think I have any interest in this?"

So I bought him tickets for the movie version which every reviewer says sucks donkey ass (well, not their words, but they panned it).

Fort Fantastico is rapidly turning into a day care center.  Friday I had four strange kids running about so I confronted the lady:

"Who are these kids and why are they here?"

"They are **'s friends and they are here because they needed somewhere to go after summer camp."

"I assume that this arrangement does not involve monetary compensation."

"Every good deed is rewarded in kind."

"Stop feeding them the food that I want to eat!  Have their parents send food to us instead."

"Stop taking in stray dogs!"

"That is different.  The dogs have no pack.  The kids are from wealthy families."

Oh, the suburban troubles...

SURVEY
What is your most hated street where you live?

For me it is the Eisenhower Expressway.  I used to take it all the time when I lived in Oak Park.  Last Tuesday I took it again and quickly remembered why I loathe the road and went into aggressive driving mode.  It is just so jacked up with traffic and idiots from west side.  Any car with an Indiana licence plate it is safe to assume that the car is stolen and the driver is high on crack.  Give them room.  Anyone else deny room by tailgating.  It is a stressful experience.  The Dan Ryan Expressway is my second worst road around Chicago.  What is yours?

Problem solved!  I have a poop bucket for the backyard for my five dogs.  For some reason said bucket attracts swarms of flies.  It is sort of like the saying, "flies on shit."  The solution is to spray the poop once it is in the bucket with insecticide.  No, not that namby pamby useless organic crap.  I use the hard stuff, nerve gas made by Black Flag.  Any flies that go in there are greeted with instant death.

Then there was the one time that I left the bucket out where it could get rained on.  That was just a disgusting mess causing me to vomit.  Never again, never again.

This is the most f'd up tollway exit in Chicago which annoys me because I have to use it to get off of 294 north at Touhy constantly.  Let me explain what those signs mean.  The left one means that if you have an I-Pass and do not wish to exit on Touhy continue on at 80 MPH.  The right sign means if you do not have an I-Pass or wish to exit on Touhy go to these lanes.

Here is the problem.  They kindly set up an I-Pass lane for those of us with an I-Pass that wish to exit on Touhy.  But they put it on the far left lane of the about six lane toll plaza. The exit is immediately after the plaza and on the right.  That means we have to cut across many lanes of traffic immediately to make the exit.  That is not fun when most of the other traffic that did not go through the no slow down I-Pass lanes are semi tractors and out of town yokels who know not what they are doing.

Does anyone know what the heck is going on with my legs?  Yesterday I could barely walk and doing such things as getting up and down from a chair or going up and down stairs was really painful.  The scary part was that I had little control over my legs and often feared toppling over.  It is not a joint issue, but seems to be a muscular issue.  The best way that I can describe it is that it feels the same way if you have ever been in really, really cold weather and you feel your muscles start to freeze.

It was better today and seemed to be concentrated on my thigh muscles.

My Life in a short song:  
There once was a man and his name was Fantastico.
He wed a gal named Teresa.
They had a child and soon Teresa split.

She split.  Teresa split.
She abandoned her kid and left town.

So Geof raised the child as best as he could.
He taught responsibility and told her to forget about her mother.

Forget about your mom!  She is no mom.
Forget about your mom.
That's no mom.

Geof found a lady who adored The Little One.
She did not care about Geof's baggage.

Now she has a mom.
She has a real mom.
This one will not leave us until the end.

More fun childhood memories.

When I was about 10 years old living in the north woods of Wisconsin my cousin was staying with me for the summer.  Not content with the vast array of legal fireworks that Wisconsin offers, my father drove us up to the Indian reservation and bought stuff that was not even legal on the rez--  bombs mostly, stuff that if caught with today you would go to prison for being a terrorist.  So my cousin and I set one off in the middle of the cul-de-sac that I lived at and created a big crater in the street.  Well, that wasn't cool.  So we figured it would be more subtle to set one off on water.  Conveniently I had a pool.  So we built this make-shift raft out of aluminum foil and tied two of them together.  Well, the raft kind of drifted to a side of the pool and caused that side to collapse.  It was one of those steel semi-underground pools.  My father wasirate, bu... more »

Successful Bribery of a Policeman

"You know that the speed limit here is 35 MPH, right?  How fast do you think you were going?"

"I don't know.  Maybe 50."

"50 is pretty brazen for being half a block from my office, the police department.  What is the big hurry?"

"I guess that I'm just really hungry and wanted a gyro."

"Oh, you are on your way to ** * then.  That's where I go for gyros.  I haven't had one in years."

"Come on then.  I'll buy you one."

It was hours later that I realized that I bribed a cop with a gyro.  It just seemed like such a natural friendly conversation.  We both like gyros.  Let's go get gyros.

This is one of the better thrillers that I have read recently.  It is circa 1963-1965 by the famous writer below.  The twists at the end are spectacular.

But the reason why I am posting is that I feel that I am being unfair to independent authors.  You see, my M.O. is to read that I probably will like, and then follow it up with  some unknown author.  Do you see the problem?  I am coming off of a great book and going to something that could use some polishing up and at the very least editing.  While I try to be somewhat gentle with my reviews, I do think it is unfair to review a book straight off of reading a great book.

Not to be completely insensitive to this whole bullying "crisis," but when I grew up in the 1970's I took it for granted that it was a part of childhood.  Big kids would make fun of me and push me around constantly because of my stature, my strange first name, my shabby clothing, etc.  While I would like to say that I stopped that by being smarter and funnier than them, the biggest factor in stopping it was throwing a wicked punch.  There was no running home to your parents and crying about it back then.  If you did, you would most likely get slapped and instructed to toughen up.

Why is this now such a problem when it has been going on since human civilization?

Well, this is better than the 1.5-5 Mbps speeds I had been getting lately.  So I have that going for me.  A Comcast technician came out this morning to check the situation.  Of course when he was here everything was swell and I was getting 38 down.  I felt bad about having to come out just to tell me everything was good and told him that.  I explained that while it is good today, tomorrow it could be unusable.

After I said that when I called yesterday to complain the down speed miraculously jumped from 3.5 Mbps to 30 the technician was quick to point the finger at Comcast, saying, "It's for sure on their end.  I do not know what they are doing.  All you can do is keep calling them up and complaining."

While I am really unsure on why anyone would want to see this musical, it is getting favorable reviews.  It is the story of Sting's (the front man from the British band The Police) childhood in England in a ship building city.  It features really awful dirge like music.  People seem to like it though.  To each his or her own I say.

And another thing.  It opened in Chicago.  I find that offensive.  It is like they are testing out the musical here for us rubes to see if it works before going to New York.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a large smart phone?  It is not because of my eyesight.  It is because I have very wide fingers.  Every attempt at using a touch screen phone in the past resulted in my index finger mashing on three buttons at once.  Completely unusable.  And no, I am not fat, I just have very wide hands and feet.  And yes, I am a Hobbit.

One of my employers is really putting the screws on me to replace my good ol' flip phone so that he can pester me wherever I am.  "What the heck is so urgent that it cannot wait 20 minutes" I say.

The link is to Verizon large phones as they have the best coverage in Chicago and I have an account with them.

Thanks for your helpful advice!
