So the 3 largest states in the USA are really not that big. Russia is about double the size of Australia. India is quite tiny compared to China, which is still only 1/4 of Africa. https://s3.amazonaws.com/thetruesize.com/mockup.html#aboutModal #world   #geography   #travel   #maps

Something to ponder for my next London visit
 
As the closest hotel to Buckingham Palace, a summer stay at The Goring is not complete without a visit to the London residence of Her Majesty The Queen. With our overnight stay offer, guests will receive a pair of tickets to explore the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace at any time of day during the admission period - an exclusive privilege for Goring guests! This tourist treat is available for stays between 1st August to 27th September 2015, subject to ticket availability. Book your tickets at: http://buff.ly/1gwYouh (Image © Royal.gov.uk)

interesting bit with +Android M, when I put Lolipop into silent mode I could still use the bluetooth audio but with M it goes quiet too. 

So in the past I would listen to my bluetooth music without getting bothered by other notifications.

tired of how often 5.1 & 5.1.1 was crashing I've moved to M. Hoping my primary apps work. 

Nice how the restores now puts my icons back as I like them.

Introduction

I enjoy helping people/organisations learn to help themselves. Whether that's with better communication, consolidating data for easy quick access, or simply providing tools for them to prosper faster.

I've managed projects from the initial concept to the finished implementation on three continents. I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty, whether crawling through sub flooring or digging deep into contract negotiations.

My passions are competing in sports, traveling, photography, advanced technology, and educating myself & others.

Local seafood & creperie at the top of the port. Upstairs provides a more formal (than downstairs) setting with a good panoramic of the port. For dinner, seafood was delicious & crepes were sublime. Service was more attentive than most.
