I've set up a Google+ page for my dad's Walk to Defeat ALS team.  He was diagnosed about 1 1/2 years ago.  I invite you to follow this page to get updates on his progress in general and our team, in particular.
 
Ben's Buddies is currently the #2 fundraising team for the 2015 walk at $258. It's early, but never too early to register for this year's walk and start fundraising in support of Ben Self, a retired DCFD Firefighter.

Currently, we only have 4 team members. Even if you can't walk with us on November 1, you can register as a "Virtual Walker" and help us raise money. Just click the Sign Up link at the top of the Ben's Buddies Facebook page or click this link to JOIN US: http://tinyurl.com/bensbuddies2015

May will be ALS Awareness month! Join up now and you'll be able to take advantage of the additional attention this will generate to get an early jump start on your fundraising.

For people battling ALS, time is not a luxury to waste. With an average life expectancy of 2-5 years following diagnosis, there is clear urgency to optimize care and find effective treatments for those affected by the disease. That's why we need to do everything we can to help The ALS Association DC/MD/VA Chapter fulfill its mission to stop ALS in its tracks. Please support my Walk to Defeat ALS® team today every dollar brings us steps closer to...

Good overview from io9 of the various Star Trek webseries.
You probably already knew this, if you're a Star Trek fan. But it's really true. YouTube is just bursting with original Star Trek content lately, from damn near spot-on recreations of the Original Series to continuations of the TNG/DS9/Voyager era. This is the golden age of Star Trek web productions.

He's dead, Jim. Sad day. Rest in peace, Leonard Nimoy.

Have you heard about the guy, Jesse Carey, listening to non-stop +Nickelback for a full week to raise money for +charity: water to build wells in Africa. So far over $28,000 has been raised that will provide clean water for 946 people. Jesse is a key member of the +RELEVANT Podcast and a big reason why it is the funniest thing I listen to each week and one of my favorite podcast. Here is the discussion from this week's show - recorded when he was just 3 days into the challenge. Check it out and DONATE to charity: Water and share.

I could see the photos part being separated out.  I don't want all my pictures on Plus.  If it was still something separate like Picasa, that would make more sense.
