    Happy 4th of July!

    All who celebrate:

    One flag, one land, one heart, one hand, One Nation evermore! 
    ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes

    America is much more than a geographical fact. It is a political and moral fact — the first community in which men set out in principle to institutionalize freedom, responsible government, and human equality. 
    ~ Adlai Stevenson

    In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved. 
    ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

    Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.
    ~ Thomas Paine

    Top 9 Comments made by commentators at the 2004 Olympics

    Here are the top nine comments made by NBC sports commentators  during the Summer Olympics that they would like to take back:

    1. Weightlifting commentator: "This is Gregoriava from Bulgaria. I saw
    her snatch this morning during her warm up and it was amazing."

    2. Dressage commentator: "This is really a lovely horse and I speak
    from personal experience since I once mounted her mother."

    3. Paul Hamm, Gymnast: "I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother
    and father."

    4. Boxing Analyst: "Sure there have been injuries, and even some deaths
    in boxing, but none of them really that serious."

    5. Softball announcer: "If history repeats itself, I should think we
    can expect the same thing again."

    6. Basketball analyst: "He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn't
    like it. In fact you can see it all over their faces."

    7. At the rowing medal ceremony: "Ah, isn't that nice, the wife of the
    IOC president is hugging the cox of the British crew."

    8. Soccer commentator: "Julian Dicks is everywhere. It's like they've
    got eleven Dicks on the field."

    9. Tennis commentator: "One of the reasons Andy is playing so well is
    that, before the final round, his wife takes out his balls and kisses
    them... Oh my God, what have I just said?"

    Here are more excellent accidental jokes from sports commentators:

    Did you ever stop and wonder...
    Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?

    Why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?

    Why toasters always have a setting so high that could burn the toast to a horrible crisp which no decent human being would eat?

    Why there a light in the fridge and not in the freezer?

    Why you don't ever see the headline: "Psychic Wins Lottery"?

    Why "abbreviated" is such a long word?

    Why Doctors call what they do "practice"?

    Why you have to click on "Start" to stop 'Windows'?

    Why lemon juice is made with artificial flavor, while dishwashing liquid is made with real lemons?

    Why there isn't mouse flavoured cat food?

    Different uses of Google+

    There are so many individual uses to this Circleverse of ours:
    Someone may be looking at the platform through professionalism and marketing, others are just having fun and being social.

    No-one is telling you how to use it:
    However, when well-meaning people give advice on different aspects in how you could use Google+, please respect their suggestions. That's what they are: Suggestions and examples.  Especially for those of you who'd like to grow your circles base.

    If you don't agree, that's fine. But please refrain from berating the poster and others who might welcome those tips.
    Some people might find the advice suited to their situation and needs.

    No one is forcing anyone to do anything on G+ against their will, so pass on if the advice is not for you.

    The true story behind this shark photo

    When this photograph was first published in Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife and later in Paris Match and the Daily Mail (London) it resulted in a flurry of e-mails, phone calls and letters from around the world asking if the image was a fake. The image became the most talked about of shark photograph ever.

    The photograph is real, no photoshop, no digital manipulation, no nothing, in fact it was shot on slide film Fuji Provia 100 using a Nikon F5 Camera and 17-35 mm lens. For those conspiracy fans who still doubt its authenticity please read how I took the photograph...

    Happy Independence Day USA!

    Fourth of July Night

    The little boat at anchor in black water sat murmuring to the tall black sky
    A white sky bomb fizzed on a black line.
    A rocket hissed it's red signature into the west.
    Now a shower of Chinese fire alphabets,
    A cry of flower pots broken in flames,
    A long curve to a purple spray, three violet balloons---
    Drips of seaweed tangled in gold, shimmering symbols of mixed numbers,
    Tremulous arrangements of cream gold folds of a bride's wedding gown---
    A few sky bombs spoke their pieces, then velvet dark.
    The little boat at anchor in black water sat murmuring to the tall black sky.

    Blogger users: Don't change any settings on Google created albums!

    Just leave the album be.  You can upload photos to the album and even copy photos from your Google+ albums.  You can also use images from all your other G+ albums on your +Blogger  blog.

    Blogger backs up all the photos used in the blog, they are housed on Google+. The album is visible on G+ only to the Google+ account owner.

    Deleting the album deletes also the images from your blog.
    Even changing the privacy setting of the album cuts the link to your blog and the images.  Making the album Public should remedy the problem if you have made changes.

    The Google+ album has the same name as your blog.

    - My CB is light -> does not ruin the handbag
    - My CB fires up in seconds
    - My CB shuts down when I close the lid.
    - My CB battery lasts for at least 7 hours
    - My CB is the Interwebz

    When I'm at home...

    - My CB is in the bedroom for night-time reading
    - My CB is in the kitchen for recipes
    - My CB is in the toilet... ???  Hey!
    - My CB is in my son's room

    The origins of punctuation marks we use in everyday life:

    Question Mark ?
    Origin: When early scholars wrote in Latin, they would place the word questio – meaning “question” – at the end of a sentence to indicate a query. To conserve valuable space, writing it was soon shortened to qo, which caused another problem – readers might mistake it for the ending of a word. So they squashed the letters into a symbol: a lowercased q on top of an o. Over time the o shrank to a dot and the q to a squiggle, giving us our current question mark.

    Exclamation Point !
    Origin: Like the question mark, the exclamation point was invented by stacking letters. The mark comes from the Latin word io, meaning “exclamation of joy.” Written vertically, with the i above the o, it forms the exclamation point we use today.

    Equal Sign =
    Origin: Invented by Welsh mathematician Robert Recorde in 1557, with this rationale: “I will settle as I doe often in woorke use, a paire of paralleles, or Gmowe [i.e., twin] lines of one length, thus : , bicause noe 2 thynges, can be more equalle.” His equal signs were about five times as long as the current ones, and it took more than a century for his sign to be accepted over its rival: a strange curly symbol invented by Descartes.

    Ampersand &
    Origin: This symbol is stylized et, Latin for “and.” Although it was invented by the Roman scribe Marcus Tullius Tiro in the first century B.C., it didn’t get its strange name until centuries later. In the early 1800s, schoolchildren learned this symbol as the 27th letter of the alphabet: X, Y, Z, &. But the symbol had no name. So, they ended their ABCs with “and, per se, and” meaning “&, which means ‘and.’” This phrase was slurred into one garbled word that eventually caught on with everyone: ampersand.

    Octothorpe #
    Origin: The odd name for this ancient sign for numbering derives from thorpe, the Old Norse word for a village or farm that is often seen in British placenames. The symbol was originally used in mapmaking, representing a village surrounded by eight fields, so it was named the octothorp.

    This comes from a book named "Uncle John's Supremely Satisfying Bathroom Reader" http://www.neatorama.com/2007/07/09/the-origin-of-everyday-punctuation-marks/

    "The Quitter"

    Fate handed the quitter a bump, and he dropped;
    The road seemed too rough to go, so he stopped.
    He thought of his hurt, and there came to his mind
    The easier path he was leaving behind.

    Oh, it's all much too hard, said the quitter right then;
    I'll stop where I am and not try it again.
    He sat by the road and he made up his tale
    To tell when men asked why he happened to fail.

    A thousand excuses flew up to his tongue,
    And these on the thread of his story he strung,
    But the truth of the matter he didn't admit;
    He never once said, I was frightened and quit.

    Whenever the quitter sits down by the road
    And drops from the struggle to lighten his load,
    He can always recall to his own peace of mind
    A string of excuses for falling behind;

    But somehow or other he can't think of one
    Good reason for battling and going right on.
    Oh, when the bump comes and fate hands you a jar,
    Don't baby yourself, boy, whoever you are;

    Don't pity yourself and talk over your woes;
    Don't think up excuses for dodging the blows.
    But stick to the battle and see the thing through.
    And don't be a quitter, whatever you do.

    Today is the #worldoceansday  so remember to wear blue!

    From Bill Mott:

    "World Oceans Day provides a unique opportunity once a year to honor our world’s ocean that connects us all, and this weekend you can join with people in communities around the world to mark the day in a special way.
     After all, no matter where we live­­—from California to Kansas to the Carolinas, and from Australia to Austria to Argentina­­­­—we all depend on a healthy ocean for our survival and each one of us can contribute to resolving the issues facing our ocean, including ocean acidification, plastics pollution, and overfishing.

    On and around June 8, people around the globe will come together to celebrate this year’s World Oceans Day theme:

    “Together we have the power to protect the ocean.”

    This growing global event serves as a rallying point for raising awareness and promoting personal and community action in fun and positive ways, leading to a more aware, engaged, and sustainable society, and a healthier ocean. Hundreds of events are planned this year to help individuals be part of the solution for our ocean by supporting clean energy choices, trash-free coasts and beaches, sustainable seafood, and more.

    Our late cat Pasha: (APR 2013)
    Pics I have missed taken by my husband...

    I was driving my 86-year-old mom today past the cemetery where she has a plot booked.
    She's been a bit under the weather and started talking about how nice it would be just to rest in the grave.

    I wanted to cheer her up and suggested that the ashes of Pasha (her favorite cat!) could be put in the grave with her and then he'd wake her up by meowing...

    She was immediately thrilled and uplifted! We spent the drive speculating how Pasha would wake her and interact, purring, bringing her ghostly moles...
    It made my mom laugh out loud and cheered her up!

    Even in death, my darling Pasha, you are a comfort and a joy.

    Thank you.  I miss you so much.

    PS: I wonder if half your ashes will do for my mom as I want the rest... So that I won't feel lonely.

    My computer has Spartans...

    "Customer: “Hi, my son says that I have Spartans on my laptop and I should bring it to you guys.”

    Tech Support: “…Ma’am? Spartans?”

    Customer: “Yes, I called my son at school and told him that screens keep popping up all the time, and he said that I have Spartans.”

    Me: “Oh! You mean Trojans! That’s a possibility; let me run this analyzer on your laptop real quick and we’ll see what’s going on.”

    Customer: “Young man, my son is in college and he says it has Spartans. You just stand here in a little uniform and make minimum wage. I think my son knows what he is talking about.”

    Tech Support: “You’re right ma’am. I was hoping to run a diagnostic and find out that it wasn’t Spartans, but just by looking at the login screen, I can tell that you probably have about 300 of the little guys running around.”

    Customer: “300?! Is that bad?”

    Tech Support: “It’s horrible. They cram themselves into a bottleneck and kill wave after wave of data, until there is a wall of dead programs blocking any more traffic through your computer.”

    Customer: “Oh, that just figures. I’m going to go buy a new computer.”

    Tech Support: “Ok, ma’am, I think that would be best.”

    A feather duster worm emerges from its tube in this ultra-macro sequence. The timing is adjusted for the animation: the actual sequence took a minute. I speeded up the beginning and the end, leaving the middle at about actual speed.

    Musings on successful presence and Google+ topics:

    The people you circle, what are you looking for there?

    A person, certain topics or all things interesting?

    This is the first platform where I've seen people think that "I post about the topics that interest ME" and not about stuff that they think might interest someone else or their readership. Google+ is honest in that way, especially when folks realize that they can just be themselves and that there are scores of others who think likewise.  An audience for everyone.

    It's not often that the commercially grown roses bought in supermarkets manage to survive the Finnish winter, but this one did. :-)

    I planted it last summer and now it's full of blooms and buds.

    Must've done something right or this rose has lots of spunk -
    I forgot to cover it last autumn...

    100 ways to be Happy: Part 7


    40) Accept that you can’t be happy all the time. Focus on being content and the true happiness will be all that much sweeter.

    41) Try to see from others’ perspectives. Much of our unhappiness comes from our frustration with other people not understanding us. Try to imagine how they see the world and the frustration will ease.

    42) Let the little things go. There’s no sense in wasting your energy and inhibiting your happiness by worrying about things you can’t change.

    43) Make the decision to be happy. Happiness is an attitude, not a physical state.

    44) Don’t take things personally. So often, anger and frustration directed at us is a result of someone else’s misplaced stress. Recognize that it’s not necessarily about you and you’ll remain calmer and happier.
