Google Photos Suggestions & Feedback  - 
 
Sure would be very nice to be have the ability to order the albums in any sequence one wishes. This would be especially helpful for photos that do not have any exif information on them.
I uploaded some EDITED IN PHOTOSHOP pictures from last June 2014 and they simply were added as per the date I uploaded them, May 30th, 2015. Its easy to change the title to add a date there, but it would be nice to be able to order the albums anyway one wishes.
I know its the competition, but Flickr allows this seamlessly, with no issues....Google Photos is better, but lets get this date thing sorted out.

So many fabulous things to see and do in Italy and eating is definitely a tourist attraction all on its own. 
If Mario says its good, I'd go!

On my mobile app, iOS 8.3, its easy to create STORIES of any group of photos...very nice. However, on the desktop, under collections, it only lets you create ALBUMS.....is that the case for everyone?
If so, it would be nice to be able to create stories there as well.

a lot of the assistant features are not currently available for desktop, it is currently unclear whether these features will be added to desktop at some future date.

Descent

On the way down, it appears the High Roller pod is riding the Las Vegas monorail. I didn't notice this the first time I rode.
Gorgeous at blue hour!! (Dang reflections!)

Update June, 2015. Still as amazing as ever and still the best fish and chips on the planet! The place for fish and chips in Toronto. The chowder is also very good and they just might have the best onion rings in the free world.

Solid St Louis! This location is super busy, especially on Sports nights. Tuesday wing nights are crazy. Great spot for pub grub in North York.

The Neapolitan pizza may not be the best in Toronto, but it's not the worst either. I'd put somewhere in the middle of the 12 places in the city that specialize in This type of pie. This place is really nice inside, with great people who own it. Service is fine and prices for menu items more than fair. Where costs might be somewhat high is for wine and beer. $9.00 for a pint of Moretti is a little on the steep side. Having said that, they do have a very extensive wine list. Overall, it's a spot well worth visiting, and we'd come again.

Went for the first time last night, and I have to say we were very impressed for a local pub. Chalkers has above average pub grub, fair pricing and a really great vibe. A great spot to come watch the game, or hang out with friends over a few pints from the good selection of on tap beers. We were there for a music event, so the place was very busy, but with its size, it never felt crowded. A return visit is definitely in the cards.

Fabulous Neapolitan pizza and just as fabulous pasta and other great Italian food. In addition, Motorino is beautiful inside with great atmosphere. A must visit.

Kind of quirky, inside and out, but decent food reasonably priced. This is mostly an all-you-can-eat place with some a la cart menu items. The tick your own menu is extensive...service is friendly...but the main reason to go is to see the building itself, and the quirky interior layout. This most definitely did not start as a Japanese Sushi House! Kind of fun!

Noisy, fun, awesome beer and great Munich style food! What else needs to be said! Just perfect for Las Vegas.
