Has this year been windier than normal? A popular question, answered here... #c4news
One of the most frequent questions that I have been asked this year is: has it been a windy year? You may be surprised at the answer!

Kind of reassuring actually.. :-)
"When we launched Google+, we set out to help people discover, share and connect across Google like they do in real life. While we got certain things right, we made a few choices that, in hindsight, we’ve needed to rethink. So over the next few months, we’re going to be making some important changes. Here’s more about what you can expect:

A more focused Google+ experience
Google+ is quickly becoming a place where people engage around their shared interests, with the content and people who inspire them. In line with that focus, we’re continuing to add new features likeGoogle+ Collections, where you can share and enjoy posts organized by the topics you care about. At the same time, we’ll also move some features that aren’t essential to an interest-based social experience out of Google+. For example, many elements of Google+ Photos have been moved into the new Google Photos app, and we’re well underway putting location sharing into Hangouts and other apps, where it really belongs. We think changes like these will lead to a more focused, more useful, more engaging Google+.

Using Google without a Google+ profile
People have told us that accessing all of their Google stuff with one account makes life a whole lot easier. But we’ve also heard that it doesn’t make sense for your Google+ profile to be your identity in all the other Google products you use.

So in the coming months, a Google Account will be all you’ll need to share content, communicate with contacts, create a YouTube channel and more, all across Google. YouTube will be one of the first products to make this change, and you can learn more on their blog. As always, your underlying Google Account won’t be searchable or followable, unlike public Google+ profiles. And for people who already created Google+ profiles but don’t plan to use Google+ itself, we’ll offer better options for managing and removing those public profiles.

You’ll see these changes roll out in stages over several months. While they won’t happen overnight, they’re right for Google’s users—both the people who are on Google+ every single day, and the people who aren’t.

Wow, if this works.. wow!

Do you ever find yourself trying to avoid long lines or wondering when is the best time to go grocery shopping, pick up coffee or hit the gym (hint: avoid Monday after work)? You’re in luck!

Now, you can avoid the wait and see the busiest times of the week at millions of places and businesses around the world directly from Google Search. For example, just search for "Blue Bottle Williamsburg", tap on the title and see how busy it gets throughout the day. Enjoy your extra time!

One of the strangest things about going on the London Eye is being fooled by the bending of the Thames and seeing things in places that surprise you.
Here we see Battersea Power Station behind The Palace of Westminster.

"Other seasons just do their three months or whatever, but I’m way deeper than that.

“You think you know what I’m going to do and then – rain.

“I like to play with people’s preconceptions of what a season is.”

Summer added that it might throw in another couple of sunny days amid the rain ‘to keep everyone on their toes’."
SUMMER has decided to end suddenly for artistic reasons, it has confirmed.

Food: I'm not a Thai food fan but was reluctantly dragged to The Lemon Tree, it turned out very well! The food was excellent, veggie versions of all dishes available (and cheaper, which is fair and refreshing) and incredibly cheap for central London (about £6 for dinner)! Lovely service too. Drink: A nice selection of 'real' beers, if you can't decide then you can take their 3 1/3 pints of different ale offer. I'd been past this place many times but won't ignore it anymore!

It might seem a little strange to review a place like this, and to give it 5 stars, but I was seriously impressed when visiting to take my Driving Theory Test. Very well organised and the security is so tight! Tighter than any airport I've been through; lockers for all belongings, you can't take anything into the testing rooms (not even water/chewing gum) for fear of cheating. You're assigned a testing terminal in a room watched over by an employee; there's no cheating done here for sure! At the terminal you're given a hand wipe and even earplugs if the sound of other people is a distraction. I actually loved it and the sanitised, secure environment helped me focus on the test (which I passed nicely)!

Not a restaurant and as a café, has no inside seating. Just a shop.

Woo! Rock! ...in Surrey! Whilst this place might be 'authentic', serving up something those into rock/metal/whatever might like, it's hardly a nice place, but hey.. that makes it more real. The dirt is real here, yeah man. I've been here for gigs and comedy shows in their backroom and well, the entertainment could have been anyone, but I was still happy to go home on all occasions. It's pretty grimy and cramped (keep it real) but what really gets me is that this place (principally a place that serves drinks to punters) has awful bogs that stink, look like they've never been cleaned and don't have soap. It's very rock and roll and should you enjoy the idea of a sweaty, dirty night soaking up other sweat and possibly other fluids, this is the place for you! Real... but take hand sanitiser with you.

Badly, badly dated in every aspect. Akin to the Overlook Hotel from The Shining, even the staff seem to come from the 60s. The box seats aren't much of an advantage, in fact the rear row of seats provide a poor view.

Pro: Surprisingly good breakfast, swimming pool is nice, having children's fun park in the hotel grounds is convenient and good fun, a nice way to end each day. Bad: Room was not ready on arrival (old wet towels, hair in bathroom, beds without sheets, no bin, ashtray on terrace full) took many requests (3/4) to fix. No WiFi for entire stay. Toilet smell when using swimming pool. Electrocution from bathroom plug located next to light switch! Often no hot water on old fashioned shower. Air conditioning often stopped working. Due to outside entertainment in park, often noisy until midnight.

An unusual place to review perhaps, but my grandmother is here and whilst being in a home isn't 'nice', this place... is. Not her first home I'm able to compare to the previous homes she's been in and this one is vastly superior. There room, space for the 'guests' to move through the wide corridors to the main lounge room and also a garden (all of this on the ground floor) for them to visit should the weather be ok. The main thing that makes me rate this place highly is the staff. Compared to the poor attention I've seen given out previously, here the staff are like angels. They're great with visitors and most importantly with the residents, treating them fairly, not as patients but as real people who simply require assistance. I've been there at visiting times and also meal times when I've seen that all the staff there treat all the residents as individuals even under very trying circumstances. A thank you to them.
