This is kind of amazing on so many levels. 
I'm sad that Stephen Colbert never had a chance to put one on his shelf on The Daily Show.

Went to Fort DeSoto's North Beach about 4:30 this afternoon. 

I visited the fort, which was interesting, but not terribly so, since it was mostly active around the Spanish American war in 1898 - though the site was initially scouted by Robert E. Lee (yes, THAT Robert E. Lee) in 1849. I found it to be quite modern by "St. Augustine" standards. It had a "dynamo room" where they generated electricity, and the crew of the gigantic 12" mortars were given firing orders by telephone...
I guess that's what 200 years of progress gets ya. =)

After that, I went to North Beach, which has won several awards for being America's Most Beautiful Beach. I can see why. The sand there is...slightly coarser than talcum powder, and it's so smooth it feels silky in your fingers. 

And I made a friend! 

Look for a video coming up early next week at http://www.YarrVee.com

Crossed over the Skyway Bridge linking St Petersburg back to the mainland this morning. It was shockingly beautiful. 

Expect video of it to catch up in a few days on YarrVee.com

My brothers drive that bridge every day. I've only been on it a handful of times. It is a gorgeous view.

Introduction
CIRCLE MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES
This works REALLY well if your circles are a disheveled mess!

Create 5 new empty circles. called:
Regulars
+1ers
Commenters
Post Share
Everyone


First:
Dump everyone from all your circles into "Everyone".

This may take two passes, as you may bump against the 'daily circling limit' that Google has, if you have a lot of people already circled.

Go ahead and keep people in your various specialty circles if you like, but YOU WON'T BE READING THOSE CIRCLES ANYMORE.

Why? 
People in those circles are real human beings and post all kinds of stuff, cat macros, macro photography, circle management strategies, etc. that are completely unrelated to the circle you've put them in...

Again - your specialty circles are now for POSTING, not READING.

Now that you have everyone in Everyone...
As people interact with you, add them to the circle that matches how they interacted.
Did someone +1 your post, your comment, or your comment on someone else's posts? Put them in +1ers. 
Same with commenting on your posts, and/or resharing them - put them in the proper circle right from the notification pane.

When you discover someone who has been added to 4 of the 5 new circles - i.e. they have check marks for Everyone, +1ers, Commenters, and Post Shared, add them to Regulars.

The side effect of organizing this way is that the level of consistent interaction I have with people has gone WAY WAY up. because I'm interacting more frequently with people who interact with me more frequently. There isn't really a case where someone who is +1ing my posts regularly is getting lost in the shuffle - it just takes one +1 to get dropped into the +1 Circle - and then when I read the +1 Circle, I'm likely to +1 your post, because I KNOW you've already done the same with me... Same with sharing, and commenting... 
And of course, it makes figuring out who your 'regulars' are dead simple.

* Everyone who circles me gets circled, and they go into Everyone, so when I run out of content in the other 4 circles of people who have interacted with me, there's a secondary stream of content where I can be the one giving the first +1, Comment on, Reshare, etc. "Give and Get Give" as the mangled paraphrase goes.

* Periodically remove everyone from the Everyone circle and leave only the people in special interest circles and the 'interaction' circles. If you've had me circled for a while, but haven't found a single thing I post to be worth a +1, and you haven't posted content interesting enough for me to drop you into a specialty circle (Gaming, Science, Ukulele, Motorcycles, etc.) where I think you belong, then you're outta here, bub.

And I'm never at a loss for people to hang out with. =)

On Tuesday, February 3, 2015, Wade and Wade did an incredible job at a VERY reasonable price installing a Blue Ox tow kit on the front end of my 2014 MINI Cooper S Clubman. I told them I'd be back in the area in a couple weeks (to pick up my FL plates) and I'd probably have more business for them. Little did I know... ***The following morning***, as I was getting ready to leave Starke KOA for Wildwood, FL, the starter on my coach gave out. They were "on the list" for places that I could have my coach towed to, and they were on the case! The repair was done quickly, and I was on the road to my destination with only a 4 hour delay. Had the repair been more major, Wade and Wade did everything they could to make sure that I was taken care of - they were even talking about getting me a spare key for the gate, so I could stay in the coach instead of a hotel at night, and wouldn't be stuck inside the coach from close to open. I cannot recommend this Father/Son Dynamic Duo enough.

tl;dr AVOID. ORDERS MISSING 1+ ITEMS EVERY TIME. I sometimes succumb to the urge to go to this Taco Bell because it's "the close one", and the one on 104th Avenue always has a super long line. I regret my decision. Every. Single. Time. They can never get the order right. Never. I can count on my fingers the number of times I have been happy with what I got, and didn't "overpay" by a couple of bucks. I wouldn't mind so much if it were wrong, but it's always one or two items *missing* (this time, 2 Caramel Apple Empanadas), never enough to go get in the car and go back (because, seriously, it's two bucks), but always enough to go, "Oh, fer cryin' out loud". The Taco Bell on 104th Avenue has a long line basically always...and I suspect that the lesson learned here is why.

The *one and only* criticism I have is that the restaurant could lose the radio playing up front. It's that station that's been meant for 14 year old girls for decades. It would have been Duran Duran in 1983, Janet Jackson in 1987, Biggie Smalls in 1997, and today it's One Direction.Great if you're 14. Not so much if you're not.Everything else is top notch. EDIT: 11/20/12 - Went back for dinner tonight. The music was "Classic Rock, Performed on a Casio Keyboard, with Cowbell Percussion" Hilarity Embodied.

They don't have my favorite Chiles Rellenos in the world - but then again, I can't get my favorite chilles rellenos delivered - so...I'm sold! I've also had the carne asada tacos and carne asada torta. Both are phenomenal. The decor is sparse, as you would expect to find in a little shoestring budget hole in the wall restaurant. They totally deserve your business. You'll be delighted!
