Even for a long time Nokia user (calls and SMS only) like me, the UX is intuitive, clicking stuff usually finds the answer I'm looking for and if I'm too "blonde" in some parts, there's the excellent Help Center from Google.
https://support.google.com/nexus/?hl=en#topic=3415518

Not to mention the Help Forum for more technical stuff and troubleshooting. Just browsing the Q&A teaches me more about the techie side. :-)

Sad goodbyes to my long time friend: We had a nice night talking, eating and singing a few songs in karaoke.

Le sigh, however we were in bed in the hotel already at 8.30 PM...
:D
What a wild night!

Now in the train on my way to Jyväskylä again.

- An animated explanation of some fundamental questions prior to the referendum on Scottish independence on Thursday.

Where is Scotland, what is Scotland and what does it mean to be Scottish?
And what is the history of Scotland's relationship with England?

But the real question is, will Scotland be better off as an independent country?

My son (17) got up at 5 AM today and shot 1129 photos in 4 hours from a hill.  He rode his bicycle first 10 kilometers, then up a winding dirt road to the hilltop with the D700, tripod and stuff.
The result is a 50-second timelapse. :-)

I take my hat off...  Who says teenagers are lazy?

Sophie Hannah, author of the new Hercule Poirot mystery The Monogram Murders, shares how she channeled one of literature's greats, and one of literature's great characters.  

"Since it was announced last September that I would be writing a new Hercule Poirot novel, I have read many accounts of what I intend to do to the poor Belgian detective that bear no resemblance to the truth.
Am I going to ‘resurrect’ him – from the dead, as the word implies? Absolutely not.

Agatha Christie killed him in Curtain, and that’s that; he can’t and shouldn’t be brought back to life. Am I going to ‘revive’ him, then? Well, no. Insofar as he’s dead, he can’t be revived, and as a fictional character, he is still going strong: eternally popular, world famous, and in no need of revival..."

Happy Birthday, Agatha Christie, born 15 September 1890, died 12 January 1976

From the article:

15 Agatha Christie Quotes

- Very few of us are what we seem.

- There was a moment when I changed from an amateur to a professional. I assumed the burden of a profession, which is to write even when you don’t want to, don’t much like what you’re writing, and aren’t writing particularly well.

- Imagination is a good servant, and a bad master.

- Crime is terribly revealing. Try and vary your methods as you will, your tastes, your habits, your attitude of mind, and your soul is revealed by your actions.

- I specialize in murders of quiet, domestic interest. 

- I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.

- The best time to plan a book is while you’re doing the dishes.

- I’ve always believed in writing without a collaborator, because where two people are writing the same book, each believes he gets all the worry and only half the royalties.

- An archaeologist is the best husband a woman can have. The older she gets the more interested he is in her.

- Where large sums of money are concerned, it is advisable to trust nobody.

- A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.

- Every murderer is probably somebody’s old friend.

- I don’t think necessity is the mother of invention — invention, in my opinion, arises directly from idleness, possibly also from laziness. To save oneself trouble.

- One is left with the horrible feeling now that war settles nothing; that to win a war is as disastrous as to lose one.

- An appreciative listener is always stimulating.


Agatha Christie was a British crime writer of novels, short stories, and plays. She is best remembered for her 66 detective novels featuring Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple.
Christie is the best-selling novelist of all time. Her novels have sold roughly four billion copies.

A.  By name or topic: Go to the Photos tab from the left pop-up menu, search for a word in the Photos search

B.  By date: Place your mouse over the blue date button top right and choose the month.  I also searched for 14 June 2013 in the Photos search and got photos I had shared that day.

C. Find a photo you have posted in the Google+ search: Go to the G+ search. Type the word, sentence or hashtag you have used in the post and click on "Search Google+".  

Then when you get the result, click on "More" and choose "From you". Choose "Most recent" and you should see your own posts.


- The search may bring up photos which are not relevant but with my searches around 90% are correct. :-)

Looks like this has changed a bit: Now we don't get the notification in the actual "Google+ notifications" part of +Mr. Jingles the bell but rather under the "Everything else".

See the screenshots for clarification.

"Everyone should know by now that the U.S. needs to adopt policies to restrain its profligate energy use.
Per capita, we use the most of any country except Iceland.
And no, it’s not just because we’re richer: Adjusted for GDP, we still use more than everyone except for Australia, Canada, and a few frigid countries in northern Europe."

I was just in a Hangout with +Dolidh Young and a bunch of other nice people:  We were talking about childbirth and the difficulties connected.

It was just a question of minutes  before I would've lost my baby:
I thank the doctor who had the presence of mind to order me to have an emergency cesarean section though nothing seemed to be amiss.  But the baby's heart stopped just before they got him out.

I have been enjoying my youngest ever since! Took this pic of him as he shares my interests. :D


Do go to hospital for getting a baby: You never know...

People who don't travel cannot have a global view, all they see is what's in front of them.

Those people cannot accept new things because all they know is where they live.
