    Pina Colada Ice Pops Healthy Recipe
    I am on a mission to find ice cream and popsicles that I can eat and still maintain a low sugar/low calorie diet. These popsicles only have 117 calories and are made with coconut milk. I plan on making these as well as blueberry and strawberry ones too. Found the recipe at allrecipes.com and http://therealityofskinny.tumblr.com/foodrecipes, wooohoooo!


    Blend and freeze the following ingredients (don’t forget the sticks!): (Makes 6 servings)

    1 can pineapple chunks, in juice
    1 banana
    1 can coconut milk
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    Calories: 117 per pop :)

    Stereographic Projection Photography
    I am not a professional photographer in the least but I sure can appreciate a unique image when I see one. This was taken over 30 hours and is hundreds of images stitched together. Greek photographer Chris Kotsiopoloulos captured it and I sit amazed and mystified!

    Totally Freaking Amazing Video of Art, Video, and Music called "I Paint" by Thijme Termaat!
    Not sure how I haven't seen this before but the more the video evolved the more my jaw kept hitting the floor. His paintings are wonderful but the addition of the video editing and music takes this experience to an entirely other dimension. Great way to end the evening for me!

    If you have joined Google+ in the past few days you may be unaware of some keyboard shortcuts you can use, especially if you want to use BOLD TEXT, use ITALIC TEXT, or use LINED OUT TEXT. Here is a tip sheet shared by +Simon Laustsen that has those and more tips on it.

    Creamy, Blackberry Frozen Yogurt altering the recipe?
    I am totally intrigued by this frozen yogurt recipe....blackberry. Looks yummy, but I am wondering what I might substitute for the sweetened condensed milk to save on calories but not taste. Coconut Milk maybe? Here is the link to the recipe, any ideas?

    One of the first things I learned about Google+ when I joined a few months back was how friendly people are here. When I had a question, I could ask for help to Google+, the Google+ Managers, or in my stream, and help was there. As our circles grew, many of us wanted a way to help our own followers and friends coming on board so this group was formed for just that reason.
    We are NOT Google employees, just an UNOFFICIAL of active users here who are willing and eager to share tips, answer questions, and seek out answers for new users. It is not necessary to follow all of us, unless you choose to. We share tips sometimes one at a time, other times in groups like +Serge K. Keller 's and +Paul Spoerry posts here, but primarily we share topics that interest us along with volunteering to help new members. If you are an active user and want to join our team, read over this post to understand who/what we are and contact me. If you are simply new to Google+, welcome, we are here to be one source, out of many, of help to you.

    Welcome New Members to Google+
    Good Morning, or Evening, depending on your time zone. As I watched my stream flow by I was hesitant to post a status right now because I didn't want it to really get lost in the flow. Then, I realized that many new members don't have streams that move quickly, so here is a shout out to all of you. Welcome to Google+! For me, this network is by far the best social network I have ever used. I learn, share, and have developed friendships with people from all walks of life, and look forward to connecting with you.

    If you feel lost at first, don't worry. I still do at times, but there are people who are eager to help. When I have a question about how Google+ works I usually first throw it out in my stream. This gives me instant feedback. If the answer isn't clear to my circles though, I will go to Google+ Help which is in the right hand corner of the black toolbar, and it looks like a little wheel. There is also a group of us, not Google employees, just users who really love Google+, that are willing to help out with new users any way we can. Our About Pages have links to tips, suggested users you can follow that will engage newbies, and lots of other ideas which can help make your experience here successful from day one.

    http://www.group.as/+new+to+google+plus+-+let+us+help

    I have found that the more I interact here, the better my experience. I follow many, but follow wisely. I share original content, but I also share content from others that I find interesting. I comment, debate, and engage with those I meet here, which is key for me. Over the past three months there have been tons of tip sheets, articles on how to use Google+, and threads about this product. Now that search is active, I am sure you will be able to pull up some of those same things if you choose to. Google+ does have a few rules, like no nudity and such, but overall, it is a very welcoming, open place.

    If you are new to Google+ please take some time to let me and your circles know that. If you have questions, ask. I look forward to sharing with you.

    Join the New To Google+? Team

    For some of us, we love Google+ a great deal and are anxious to see it succeed. We have sent out invites, only to find that our friends, family, and co-workers join but don’t find their first experience here successful and leave after the first day. I want them to enjoy Google+ with me and am actively trying to make their first visit here one that shows the brilliance of G+. Although Google has in place many help features, we believe that there are steps we can take as a user base to help those new members feel at home from day one as well. We also realize that the Google+ Community Managers are pretty swamped and can't always engage in one on one conversations to answer questions, (although +Natalie Villalobos does a pretty sweet job!) That is where we, the users can help.

    Here is how you can help:

    1. Join the New To Google+? Team on http://www.group.as/+new+to+google+plus+-+let+us+help and add your profile number to our group.
    By joining you are committing to these things:
    a. Fill out your Profile About Page with a section labeled “New To Google? Let Us Help.”
    b. Leave a link to our group.as page so that new members who join or visit your page
    will be able to add some of us from day one and get help finding their way around.
    c. List at least 5 people you follow that you have asked to help welcome newbies.
    (Those 5 don’t have to be a member of this group, just five friends who will help you
    welcome others. )
    d. Occasionally create posts with this header, New To Google? Let Us Help!
    Post one short, helpful tip at a time with a possible link to more info.
    e. Actively engage with the new members by posting publicly along with your private posts.
    f. Don’t join this group for personal gain. Please, no spammers, sales, or folks simply trying to raise follower counts. This
    group is a service group of volunteers, to promote Google+ and help new users. It isn’t about popularity.
    g. Share the link to your profile page with any new member you invite and post it occasionally to let new followers know
    you are a New to Google+ Team Member and want to help.
    h. Be knowledgeable about how Google+ works, know the Googlers who are developers and community managers, and
    know where to send folks who ask, "How do I find people who have the same interests as I do?"

    Can’t Join The Group But Want To Help?

    1. If you don’t feel you are knowledgeable enough about the ins and outs of how Google+ works but still want to join in to help
    new members, consider doing the steps above but change it up, “New to Google+? These Folks Can Help” and give a link
    to our group.
    2. You can always create posts on your own, as you become more familiar with how G+ works simply by using the phrase in
    your post and sharing a tip at a time. By sharing the link to your profile you not only help new members see why a thorough
    Profile is so important, but it helps your new invites feel they have a connection here from the start.
    3. Form your own welcoming committee for your new invites and place links to their profiles on your About Page. You can
    also participate in The Public Circles Project by +Jarek Klimek at this link:
    https://plus.google.com/111873853137122484021/posts/PtKotY6hLGg

    The beauty in this project is simple. We, who actively use Google+, can spread the word and throw out the welcome mat for new users by changing our About Pages, Sharing Links to Them, Sharing G+Tips in our Posts, and Being Open to Answer Questions About Google+ for our own followers. Will you join me?

    Please remember, there are lots and lots of lists circulating which are helpful for some but our group is not to raise your follower counts. Please join and contribute if you want to help make Google+ more user friendly to new members. If you do join, Message me that you are joining please so I can add you to my circle of helpers If you share this posts, PLEASE, disable comment sharing so I can keep up here, thanks!

    Join the New To Google+? Team

    For some of us, we love Google+ a great deal and are anxious to see it succeed. We have sent out invites, only to find that our friends, family, and co-workers join but don’t find their first experience here successful and leave after the first day. I want them to enjoy Google+ with me and am actively trying to make their first visit here one that shows the brilliance of G+. Although Google has in place many help features, we believe that there are steps we can take as a user base to help those new members feel at home from day one as well. We also realize that the Google+ Community Managers are pretty swamped and can't always engage in one on one conversations to answer questions, (although +Natalie Villalobos does a pretty sweet job!) That is where we, the users can help.

    Here is how you can help:

    1. Join the New To Google+? Team on http://www.group.as/+new+to+google+plus+-+let+us+help and add your profile number to our group.
    By joining you are committing to these things:
    a. Fill out your Profile About Page with a section labeled “New To Google? Let Us Help.”
    b. Leave a link to our group.as page so that new members who join or visit your page
    will be able to add some of us from day one and get help finding their way around.
    c. List at least 5 people you follow that you have asked to help welcome newbies.
    (Those 5 don’t have to be a member of this group, just five friends who will help you
    welcome others. )
    d. Occasionally create posts with this header, New To Google? Let Us Help!
    Post one short, helpful tip at a time with a possible link to more info.
    e. Actively engage with the new members by posting publicly along with your private posts.
    f. Don’t join this group for personal gain. Please, no spammers, sales, or folks simply trying to raise follower counts. This
    group is a service group of volunteers, to promote Google+ and help new users. It isn’t about popularity.

    Celebrating My Born Day
    Wow! Totally blessed birthday today! I'll say this for FB, they are one up on Google+ for helping share the love on a birthday day. As much as I hate to get older, I totally felt surrounded by much love and friendship, for that I am blessed. My best friend baked me the best birthday cake ever, two loaves of homemade sourdough bread. It's gifts like these, made at home with simple ingredients, that mean the most to me. I carved our a hole and we lit a candle, such a fun way to celebrate my "born day." Just now coming up for air and I see I missed the roll out of brand pages and lots of juicy fun stuff here. After Friday, which is the day we celebrate our First Anniversary for our gallery, Art(ology), I will come up for air and be able to hang out in the Googlesphere. I have missed YOU, the conversation, the friendship, and so grateful that this social network is still my favorite place to call home. Peace friends, be blessed and loved tonight!

    My students and I read the book, "The Dot' a few weeks back and each one created their own version of the most spectacular dot. With almost 250 of them, we decided to gift our principal with a bouquet of flowers on her birthday. I think they turned out swell!
