My friend +Norman Allin who lives in Thailand tells us about today's festival:

Loy Krathong Festival, November

"For me the highlight of the year is the Loy Krathong festival. This is perhaps the most charming of all of Thailand’s festivals and it takes place on the full moon evening in November.

‘Loy’ means to float, and a ‘krathong’ is a basket made from banana stem and leaves and is decorated with flowers, a candle and three incense sticks. During the evening, local people will go to their local canals, rivers or the sea to float their krathongs which they believe will bring them good luck in asking for forgiveness from the Goddess of Waters for the abuse she has suffered over the past year.

People usually make a wish at the same time and some people believe that if the candle remains burning until the krathong is out of sight then their wish will come true. Lovers often float a krathong together.
Northern Thailand has a different type of krathong, a hot air balloon called a ‘Khom Loy’, and these are now often found all over the country. The sight of thousands of khom loys rising into the sky and a river or the sea filled with flickering candles is truly magical. Firework displays and ‘Nong Noppamas’ beauty contests are also held.

The festival is celebrated nationwide. Traditionally Sukhothai is the one place to try to see the festival, where the historical park is packed with local visitors, and where there is a lovely Sound And Light Performance. In Chiang Mai the festival is called Yi Peng, and it’s a lovely location to witness the festivities.
In Bangkok it’s maybe easier to see the festival by a local canal rather than down by Chao Phaya River. Recently I have gone to Pattaya to see the festival. The beaches are even more packed than during the daytime, there is a wonderful celebratory atmosphere, the seas are full of people floating their krathongs, and if it’s not too windy, lots of candles bobbing in the sea make for the most beautiful sight. Add the starry skies above, with the majestic sight of thousands of khom loys rising into the sky with fireworks… and yes, it’s sheer magic!

One mistake visitors often do is to attend the Loy Krathong party or dinner that their hotel arranges, where they will float krathongs in the hotel pool…. And they think that’s it!

Get out, go out to the canal, the lake, the river or the sea where the local people themselves are celebrating and see what they do, this is the real magic and spirit of the festival. Things will start as dusk falls and go on until well after midnight!

You must also pay attention on this particular night in buying your krathong and ensuring it is made from all natural materials. It should be banana stems and leaves and flowers. Foam is an absolute no no!

Loy Krathong is a lunar festival, and the date changes every year, and falls on the night of the full moon in November. In 2015 it will be celebrated on 25th November."

Understanding the new Google+ by +Mike Elgan

"Google is  slowly rolling out a completely revamped Google+ for both desktop browsers and mobile apps.

On the old Google+, everything was a search result. For example, viewing your "Family" circle was just a search result saying: "Show me all posts by people on this list in reverse chronological order." Actual searches (as in using the search box) were indistinguishable in concept from any other view. Everything you did in Google+ was a stream resulting from either a manual or an automated search.

Later, Google added Communities and Collections. Communities are like Reddit. A user creates a place to talk about a specific -- often very specific -- topic. Anyone who joins that community can post on that topic, and each Community can have multiple moderators.

Collections are like Pinterest: Each user says "Here are the categories of interests I have," and followers can follow any or all of them as you would boards on Pinterest.

Four aspects of Google+ have been successful. First, its cloud-based photo management and editing tools were a big hit. Google spun those out as Google Photos, which is now social-network-agnostic and very popular.

Second, Google's video Hangouts were great. The company spun out the Hangouts product as a separate offering and now even enables people to use Hangouts without a Google password. Hangouts is less successful as a messaging platform overall, but its multi-user video chat feature is still the best experience available.

Finally, Communities and Collections were also successes, and they are now the central focus of the new Google+, while Circles are de-emphasized..."

Updated: How to find your Blogger blog images in Picasa Web Albums (they aren't accessible in Google Photos!)

Google+ Photo Albums are no longer accessible. That means Picasa Web Albums ( is the only place to access your Blogger blog albums.

Be aware that if you try to open Google+ Photos you will be redirected to the new Google Photos ( where Blogger blog albums are not accessible.

Note that Picasa Web Albums ( has some limitations:

* Picasa Web Albums only display up to 1000 images in an album, even though albums can contain up to 2000 images.

If your Blogger blog album seems to be missing the most recently uploaded images, that could be the reason why. Check to see whether the album has more than 1000 images.

* Picasa Web Albums does not offer a way to recover deleted images

If you delete images in Picasa Web Albums (or anywhere else) that display on your Blogger blog, they will disappear from your blog. 

Hopefully Google will implement a "trash" option to recover deleted images, but at this time there isn't any way to recover them.

(Note: Google Photos does have a "Trash" page but that is only available for images accessible through Google Photos - that does not include Blogger blog images or Hangouts images)

* If you set your Blogger blog album to be visible to only yourself in Picasa Web Albums, you'll need to make it Public to restore images to your blog.

Learn more:
Note: Google+ Photos will be retired starting July 29, 2015. You will still be able to find your Blogger albums in Picasa Web Albums after that date (as of 11/19/15 Google+ Photos links redirect to Google Photos). Picasa We...

Cross-country – Skiing with Feeling

"Cross-country skiing is somewhat of a national sport in Finland. It is suitable for everybody and extremely good for the body and mind, with beautiful winter scenery serving as an inspiring backdrop.

Cross-country skiing is part of Finnish culture, and nearly every Finn learns it right after taking their first steps. Decades ago, it was an important means of transport in the winter, and skiing across forests and lakes on the way to work or school was commonplace. In smaller communities, kids still ski to school when there’s snow on the ground.

Even today, cross-country is accessible all over Finland. All municipalities, from the Helsinki metropolitan area to the remote villages of Nuorgam and Kilpisjärvi in Northern Lapland maintain a network of skiing tracks, many of them lit.

Finland’s most comprehensive network of tracks, a staggering 330 kilometres, circles the Ylläs ski resort and is accessible within a couple of minutes’ walk from all accommodation. In Helsinki, tracks around the metropolitan area are accessible by local transport..."

About me in Finnish:

Tervetuloa Plussan puolelle kaikki suomalaiset!

Suomi -yhteisö kaikille meille, mukaan vain!

Yritykseni Gplussa sai siivet toukokuussa 2012.
Tarvitsetko Social media community manageria hoitamaan some-kenttää?

Mistä on kyse, Jaana Nyström?

Kuinka minusta tuli kouluttaja sekä yhteisömanageri:

Ryhdyin yrittäjäksi "vanhoilla päivillä" eli viisikymppisenä ja vaihdoin kertaheitolla ihan eri alalle kuin missä olin viettänyt viimeiset 23 vuotta -> matkailu.

Kiinnostuin sosiaalisesta mediasta varsinkin pienyrittäjien näkökulmasta: Ryhdyin miettimään jo omankin yritykseni kannalta kuinka olisi mahdollista saada some-näkyvyyttä ihan ilman mainosbudjettia tai rahankäyttöä. Valtavasti opiskeltavaa on edelleen, homma muuttuu melkein joka päivä: Uutta tulee mutta jotkut parhaat pysyvät.

Olen erikoistunut Google+ -alustaan: En edes sano some-alustaan koska minulle Plussa on työkalu.
Olen Suomen seuratuin Nobody - Plussan puolella.

2015 Helsingin Sanomat teki ison jutun minusta:
