Désolé a te dire mon avis parce que j'ai beaucoup de problème surtout dans ma famille et aussi a propos de ma santé . Je n'ai pas d'envie de discuter avec 43 personnes ou plus parce que j'ai n'ai pas le souffle de faire le chat avec ces gents .

Amicalement merci

Dancing Man Found

There are days where I fall head over heals in love with the Internet again and again-- This is one of them. In case you haven't been following events as they unfolded, this is roughly what happened:

A pretty heavy set man was dancing and enjoying the music, when a group of mean spirited kids took his picture while staring and laughing at him-- They proceeded to post the before (dancing happily) and after he noticed (totally crushed spirits) photos on 4chan.
A wonderful group of ladies noticed this when it was posted on imgurl, and decided to throw this man a huge dance party -- all 1700+ of them-- because everyone should be able to enjoy dancing without being worried about being shamed for who they are.

They send out their SOS to help identify and contact this man, and after 24 hours they managed to make contact and invite him -- and he accepted!

Now a huge dance party with hundreds of lovely women and tunes provided by Moby and Pharrell Williams who volunteered their time to help make this the bestest and most memorable party ever for this man, is well under way to happening as soon as he can fly over to LA.
The internet like everyone else has it's good and dark days-- this is definitely one of the very, very good ones!
Cassandra Fairbanks details how she and thousands of women in an online group decided to throw a party for a man who was bullied on the Internet.

Awesome and very uplifting. That kindness was shared with so many and started by individuals who set out to do the direct opposite! Thanks for sharing.

“It is not the technology itself that profoundly impacts our lives, but the culture shaped and fostered by the technology”, said Chris Chabot in his opening speech at How to Web Conference 2014."

I absolutely loved speaking at the How to Web conference and meeting everyone there -- check out the video

Oxford University Museum of Natural History

Speculation has it that the first scholars were roaming around in Oxford as early as 1096. In the many centuries since the deep musings, groundbreaking research and endless streams of rebellious, (presumably, nay hopefully) intelligent young students coming up with new nefarious ways act out have imbued it's very essence.

So it shouldn't be surprising that when my mom came to visit, Oxford had it's own day dedicated to it, and ended up being one of her favorite things of the trip -- especially this wonderful museum.

Do you ever feel your life is dominated by screens? 

Playing with Swift in Xcode (with Agent Carter in the background, lovely new series) it dawned on me I had a lot of pixels around me

The view from my apartment gets crazier every year it seems. Today the start of the British Academy Film Awards' red carpet starts right in front of my door.

Does make doing groceries a bit trickier than normal and I can forget about ordering pizza.

Venice #6

Hear my song, Violetta
Hear my song beneath the Moon
Come to me in my gondola
Waiting on the old lagoon

Serenade across the water
Can you hear it soft and low
A tale of love and lovers
Singing long ago

Hear my song, in my gondola
Waiting on the old lagoon

There's this popular meme going around for a while now, and it got me thinking about if this could work at all.

As a starting point I looked into the estimated # of cell towers In london, which is about 23k cell towers, for a population of 8m people. Say that for WiFi you'd need double the # (after all the signal range is shorter), London would need ~50k theoretical WiFi trees.

After a bit more research I found that on average, a single leafy tree creates enough oxygen per year for 2 human beings / year -- using the estimated 50k WiFi trees, that would create enough oxygen for 100k people, which unfortunately is a tiny, tiny # compared to size of London's population.

So I think forests is still where it's at as far as oxygen production goes .. (and I wish we'd stop cutting those rainforests down)

Wonderful ambiance and a great sense of occasion. The setting almost reminds one of a mad men restaurant, the steaks are absolutely lovely and the way they sear the outside of it makes them stand apart. Lots of sides and drinks to chose from and none of them disappoints. One of my favorite steak places London. Full stop.

This is one of the two Brindisa's in London, with the other one being in Borough Market. Both of them offer an exquisite atmosphere, delightful food and delicacies, good service and a selection of really wonderful spanish wines. There are many Tapas places around that are merely Tapas restaurants because it sounds fashionable - and there are few that are the real deal, this little gem is very much in the latter category.

These people are absolutely fantastic. The vets are some of the best ones in town and they have specialists visiting on set days as well - so they offer a very high level of all types of care. The store next door that they also own has all the top-notch petfood that I was looking for, super helpful advice on how to make my kitties be less stressed during their big move from San Francisco to London, and the service is once again really friendly and great. There's no way I would go anywhere else for my vet

Tuxedo Express is slightly pricier compared to some of the other dry cleaners around, but their service is impeccable and the quality of work is very high - so when getting your shirts taken care of to perfection is important, this is the place to go.

File this one under pleasant and delightful surprise. When you hear market you might think cheap fruits and veggies and the occasional second hand item, but this place is nothing like it: It's a treasure trove of artesian and exquisite foods that you'd be hard pressed to find anywhere else in London. And I'm talking some of the best chocolates here, or aged-to-perfection iberico ham, the list of delicacies just goes on and on. If you want to treat your self to an amazing experience and come home with a bag filled with some of the most amazing delights, this is the place to shop

The short of it is that this is a lovely place to eat when you're in the neighborhood. The food is quite good - not stunning mind you, though it's very hard to find stunning in a touristy mass-production kind of place, but with that being said it's very good for the location. Prices are decent, and the service is absolutely lovely. And as they say: Location, location, location - this is right around the corner of a dozen great theaters making this a great place to go for some pre-show delights.
