Who knows, as a separate product we might actually see a new Photos API eventually ;)
 
Just wanted to confirm that the rumors are true -- I’m excited to be running Google’s Photos and Streams products!  It’s important to me that these changes are properly understood to be positive improvements to both our products and how they reach users.

Today we finished putting up the rose arches and prepared a bed next to it for mini kiwis, akebia and strawberries.

We also put up the snail fence around our vegetable patch.

Here's a thought that's been bothering me:

Was +Stella V originally supposed to be trained as one of the Endgame players of one of the lines? Until Wayland took her out of the equation by killing her parents and raising her himself. What could be his motives behind that if this were the case?

What do you think +Greg Jordan?

I've thought Stella was always meant to be a player in Endgame and after today's solution with Angela wanting Robyn to keep Sophia's identity a secret that made me think it even more. If the father is the link to Endgame then if it was known that Stella had a younger sister, they, whomever they may be, could of come after her, so keeping there link a secret makes sense.
As for the alien thing I've wonder about that as well. The video' Dream' Stella did when she describes things like feelings of floating, seeing stars, flying through space, definitely made me think of some kind of abduction, even though it may have been about when Pinstrip took her, just seems like this was about something else. She also mentioned her Mum having her hand on a lever of a slot machine which made me think of Wayland. So I think it will be fascinating to see how this all plays out.

Someone gotta sort this out. "Live Streaming is not available in your country due to rights issues." I'm so f*** tired of it.

This is a very cool tool. And that find duplicates is a very useful function, but this very function will help them to largely increase the value of their adresses. Helping me helps them.

Before the rain decided that we shouldn't work too much today, we got some things done:

Transferred the mini kiwis to their new location, prepared the bed for our white and red currants and planted the two we already had, planted another gooseberry and rearranged the raspberries so we have one spot with summer raspberries and one with autumn raspberries.

With the weather getting nicer again we were able to get quite a bit done in the garden today, and planning to do more during the weekend.

1) Planted our new cherry tree that arrived yesterday. Rainier, yellow cherries that we first tasted in San Francisco. Best cherries ever but you can't get them here anywhere, we only get the normal red kind.

2) Planted a new gooseberry.

3) Started putting up the rose arches for our kiwis. Two done, two to go. Before that we needed to relocate a hydrangea bush and the bird house to make room for the arches.

I picked up my seed potatoes 2 weeks ago they are in my dining room sprouting. My plan is to plant them out in a few weeks.

Trying to create a rough timeline of events, since it's easy to lose track, and easier to see how things are related that way.

E.g. I noticed that on May 23rd, 1992, instead of being on her flight home after meeting with Pramik (as suggested by one information), Karen Maddox is found dead, quite a distance away from both the UT Austin and the airport (as seen in another newspaper snippet). So what was she doing all the way out there (that is if she was still alive at that point)?

Still missing some bits and pieces so feel free to let me know about important dates I missed, or wrong information I have in there.

Here are the mottos as shown during the event in Vegas:

Aksumite: Will conquers all.
Cahokian: To believe something is impossible is to make it so.
Donghu: Warriors by birth. Nomads by right. Wild by nature.
Harappan: Let the Gods wonder at the Works of Man.
Koori: Eyes may be the doorway to the soul, but dreams are the doorway to eternity.
La Tène: Nature never deceives us; it is we who deceive ourselves.
Minoan: SeaKings
Mu: Roots in the Ocean. Head in the Stars.
Nabatean: Open hand, Closed fist.
Olmec: Through blood we rise.
Shang: Strength in unity, wisdom in legacy, truth in victory.
Sumerian: Limitless.

Did anyone (maybe +JoJo Stratton) get the Nabatean one? Thanks +Petra Wenz 

Also added those mottos to https://scary-experiments.appspot.com/ancient-societies/

Hope you don't mind me chiming in about La Tene.

When I found ours I thought that it perfectly encapsulated La Tene and Ancient Societies/Endgame. Like JoJo said, it's all on perspective

Nature never deceives us; it is we who deceive ourselves.

The motto obviously talks about nature and deception, two very important things to La Tène and the Truth. For me, it represents how nature is naturally (no pun intended) pure and uncorrupted. Nature is something that is always true and good, unless corrupted by humans. This quote reminds us that we are the deceivers and corrupters, and that nature is an important force in finding the Truth.

I find ours to be more of a motto - something that should guide us in the fight/journey towards the Truth and something that should remind us of what it important.

Motto:
a short sentence or phrase chosen as encapsulating the beliefs or ideals guiding an individual, family, or institution.

Sorry that this is probably really long but I thought it should be explained as even some members of our line questioned it as well :)
