Really nice views at Great Meadows

I get too may posts from TED every day. How do I stop getting the posts, the volume of posts obscures everything else.

Hi +Alan Bragg you can create a new circle and move Ted in to it, you can then control the volume of posts or turn them off completely.

Once your circle has been created, go to the home stream and select the circle from along the top of the screen where you will find settings for that circle.

I've been practicing taking pictures of flying birds with my new Olympus camera SP-100EE which has a "red-dot" focusing mechanism. Most of these pictures were taken at full x50 zoom and the birds often distant (1000-1500').

My current obsession.
OpenStreetMap has changed the way we use and think about maps. It gathered a huge community of dedicated contributors. It help organisations around the world to add a spatial layer to their activities. It allowed to save thousands of lives during humanitarian crises. Due to these and many other reasons we have partnered with Mapbox

Dick Golembeski and I repaired the uprooted stairway to the restrooms at Great Meadows Concord Unit today. We added two new steps to help those with bad knees. Steps were made from patio blocks donated by my neighbors Bill and Marie Ryder and lumber from the piggery barn.
