A View of Athens From the Acropolis
I know, I know... while you are all working hard I'm gallivanting around the world. But hey! At least I'm sharing the pictures! :-) So here's a panorama I took of the City of Athens from atop the Acropolis.

Just think of the good news. You didn't have to climb all those steps to get to the top to see the view! I brought it right to you.

Barcelona's Arc de Triomf
Just thought I'd share one more shot of the Arc de Triomf, this time in the day right after a shower. If you didn't see my night time shot of it the other day, here it is:

The Arc looks really interesting day or night, so I'd say it's a worthwhile stop when visiting Barcelona.

The Path to the Parthenon
I know this is a really simple little photo, but last night I went walking around the city streets of Athens, then took this little path up to the Parthenon. There's something quite different about knowing you're doing the same thing people have been doing for thousands of years in the same place!

Americans certainly aren't used to this because our country is just way too young. So I captured the moment just as a reminder of what it felt like.

If you're wondering, this was shot in complete darkness. The Canon 1DX combined with the L series 16-35mm lens is amazing. The capture was at something like ISO 25,600 and even the original wasn't too bad! But then I obviously did quite a bit of manipulation in Photoshop just to pretty it up and make it look the way I wanted to remember it.  :-)

Lee B. Strickland      John Pozadzides   thanks so much for sharing this.    My second husband and I lived in Sicily for 2 years.  I felt that way.  We lived in Sigonella,  not very far from Mt.Etna.  Made lots of trips the to watch the lava flow.    We toured as many places as we could and I was always in awe because I did not pay attention to history that much in school.   But it was really treasured when my husband would tell me  where,  when and why of each place.    We made a few trips to Naples.  Tom had to go there for 6 month checkups,  Hodgskins disease,  and we went to   Pompeii.  Walked all over,   the cart ruts in the streets were amazing.   The art work (covered up) would make an old sailor blush.   You could see the remains of people that died when Vesuvius erupted.    Horses and dogs also.   The mosaics were beautiful.  We stopped at a gift shop there and an elderly man was making  Cameos,  out of shells.   Similar to the Conch shell in Florida.  We bought 3.  I gave one to my Mom but have never done anything with the others.   On the same trip we went to the Isle of Capri.  Beautiful.   Thanks for bringing back a lot of memories.

Now THIS is a Gyro!
One of the best things about visiting Greece is the food! And if you think you know what a gyro tastes like - think again!

A real Gyro comes on a thick, soft pita that actually tastes and feels like bread. Not cardboard. The meat has to be expertly carved from the spit, and topped with French fries (potatoes).

This one comes from the Smile Greek restaurant in downtown Athens right by the Parthenon. And yes, it did indeed make me smile!

Who's hungry?

Gyros and souvlakis are 2 of the most copied sandwiches in the world, at least in my experience, and very few who can do it right.

CastAR - Interview with Jeri Ellsworth

CastAR's demo video is out, showing off some of the capabilities of the system. I had the chance to conduct a short email interview with +Jeri Ellsworth, co-creator of CastAR, for +Geek Beat.

Credit is like air. Everybody gets some. Till they see your credit score,. Then no matter how much credit you deserve, you won't get it till they feel vindicated. They only see numbers, not masterpieces.

Overlooking the Flea Market at Monastiraki
Monastiraki has been the center of Athenian commerce for thousands of years, at the foot steps of the Acropolis.

You'll find a curious mix of the ancient and new with ruins, shops and street vendors all fighting for your attention.

I snapped this photo from the roof of the A for Athens Hotel, on their outdoor coffee bar.

Well, I finally got some +McDonald's​ for real in Barcelona! Chicken nuggets and fries for breakfast! +Amber Mac​ did not approve... but she didn't have to eat it because there were plenty of choices. :-)

Going to Barcelona and eating at McDonald's is like not going anywhere and eating at McDonald's. There where no other options?

Thank you for an amazing body of work, Mr. Nimoy.
 
Bendable screens, strange lights in the asteroid belt, an easier way to find flights, and a tribute to Leonard Nimoy.

My View From the Stage!
Huge props to the entire team that helped +Amber Mac and I pull off the +Samsung Mobile LIVE stream. Here's our view from the stage with just SOME of the special crew members who made us look great!

Thanks to everyone who tuned in for all or part of the coverage. I hope you had as much fun as we did launching the #GalaxyS6 !

And yes, this panorama was shot on the new S6. It really is a remarkable piece of engineering. You won't have long to wait until you can get your hands on one...

Stopped in after seeing a listing online to take a look at a couple of vehicles. The selection was quite good, especially appreciated the fact that all of the vehicles were indoors (Texas heat), and enjoyed working with Joe. He was thoughtful, honest, and efficient. We ended up purchasing a used Land Rover, and we're really enjoying the vehicle. I'd recommend the dealership, and also working with Joe, to anyone.

In addition to being a lousy, low class club where the music doesn't match the Paris theme, this outdoor venue BLASTS music with what must be thousands of watts. It's deafening nearby and so loud that one employee at Bally's told me it goes right up their hotel and disturbs customers even at the top floors! "I can't tell you how many complaints we've had! And Metro has been called so many times, but it's like it's falling on deaf ears," she said. If you're a lowlife douchebag whose goal is to live like a real life Jersy Shore member, this club is for you! Otherwise boycott it and spread the news about their ruinous reputation.

Mike and his team are extremely professional, timely, and did a fantastic job for us. We went through an exhaustive selection process before choosing him for our fence, landscaping AND driveway. We're very pleased with the quality of all the work.
