A sad day:( One of the world's funniest men. I grew up watching The Young Ones, and nearly everything else he touched.

Farewell, Captain FlashHeart.

4 Days in Singapore (day 1)
This was going to be my #fivedayquest but 'Scoot Air' got us into Singapore five hours late... Pretty impressive for a 6hr flight, really! We got into the hotel at 5am to the only room left in the building... Two single beds on a smoking floor. They couldn't explain what happened to our booking for a double non smoking, but there was no point arguing. Actually, I had no idea you could still smoke indoors in Singapore... I think everyone must come here to smoke. We crashed out for a couple of hours, then spent the day walking the city.

Other than the airline & Grand Smoke Hotel, we're loving it here! Lots of photos of course, but this is my winner: Flea interacting with installation art. We loved the walk around Fort Canning. It is such a lovely, friendly, clean & green city. And so far, no rain! Loving the heat & humidity:) Now, off to discover some local cuisine for dinner at Clarke Quay!

Wordpress CMS page load issue #Help
These two images are results from showing the cause of horrendous page load / speed issues I'm currently having on the site. ANY help would be wonderful; i'm at the limit of my knowledge.

» The admin.ajax.php issue (image 2) I have traced to what is known as a "heartbeat" - the CMS sending a little message to itself to stay in touch with who is logged in, editing things and generally tinkering. I have turned that off entirely as described here: - and I have seen no improvement.

» The custom-css issue (image 1) ··· I'm completely stumped.

» WooCommerce - many threads report this as being an issue following a recent update; all say the simplest fix is to turn off the system generated email sent when there is a customer order. I get maybe one order a month through the site, so i doubt it's that, but i've turned it of anyway. No noticeable improvement:)

If you know a Wordpress guru, drag them in here would you?

I notice you aren't using any sort of compression on your site. No gzip compression enabled. There are plugins and htaccess tips to enable it but should give you performance increase.

I don't remember enabling it on my Wordpress sites suggesting ZEND on my server that I installed long ago is doing it on my behalf.

Perth - do you recognise these people? Share to your Perth circles.
Self explanatory. Stupid people make like pretty easy.

If you want to find a delightful High Tea in Perth, here's a place you can try. Just don't use the loo! The best thing about the day is the lovely photos of Flea I managed to get :)

Another brave little droid earmarked for a cold, desolate end of days after bravely venturing where no man may go. RIP little buddy. Enjoy your last months.

Singapore Day 2 the breath-taking Gardens by the Bay - definitely not to be missed. This slow moving snail train in the Cloud Forest caught my eye. A truly gorgeous day; I'm loving the weather. We got caught in a storm on the way back which cooled things down nicely. Tomorrow: shopping day! +Yoon-Mi Kim

Hey! Happy Birthday +Lacerant Plainer !!! have a wonderful day my friend :)

Birthday Boy & the Reluctant Rover

A very happy birthday to +Lacerant Plainer - from a secret admirer... and me!

» I received an email this week about Dr. Lacerant; a wonderful, gnarly old scientist who celebrates his birthday today. I’m told that many moons ago he had a dog, a dog he sent it up into space in a rocket made entirely out discarded tin cans. The rather ingenious (if haphazard) nature of his design meant that the pup actually made it to Mars (which it may well have colonised – Curiosity will reveal all in time) before the good Dr. Lacerant realised he had no way to extract information back from his venture. A few of Rover‘s brief barks, excited yips and mournful yowls were all he could decipher over the short wave.

It’s a wonder with this kind of willful carelessness and lack of forethought that dear old Dr. Lacerant has made it to this day in one piece; yet here he is, on the dark side of yet another annual milestone. I am but one among many lucky enough to call him a friend, and from all of us:

Happy Birthday, Lacerant!

I don't think I have a more hardcore fan than +Jessica Marie - check this out!

#tattoo   #scribblegraph  
I have a few lovely, very supportive fans who have been around forever - but +Jessica Marie has seriously gone next level. Check out her tattoo of this very early #scribblecrush  request (inlcudes links to the original post from way back in August 2012). The tattoo artist has done an amazing job to clean this up enough and make it look as good!

Pro Love Tip #117: Bacon Toothpaste. 

We've had a smashing day old chap; what with High Tea in the foot hills & much frivolity abounding. Oh, and all you chaps looking for a bit of a snog today, here's Pro Love Tip #117: Bacon Toothpaste. It gets my personal seal of approval. Lip smacking good.

(Twitter) · we're having a silly-fun evening. We'll post or tweet  photos of the High Tea a little later - Tweet us silly pics!
