Thanks +UPRISE Media :o) You're right - dry copy is much simpler to write but doesn't have nearly the same effect that story-telling does.

Tip 8/50: Learn The Various Google+ Keyboard Shortcuts
Did you know you can streamline your Google Plus experience with these nifty short cuts?...

Note: These short cuts also work in Gmail!

To bring up the list of short cuts (usually a letter or character on the keyboard) simply press the '?' key. It may take a little while to memorise and master these, but doing so will make your G+ experience even more enjoyable and efficient!

A few highlights include:
j = next post
k = previous post
o = expand/collapse current post
n = next comment on current post
p = previous comment on current post
r = comment on current post
/ = search
? = open short cuts 

Thanks to Brian at +hongkiatcom Weblog for this one. See the original article here:

Content Marketing  - 
I've been using image search by copyright license on Bing - good to see Google have made their filter available, too.
Are using images found on Google in your posts? You NEED to read this.

Hi, having a good picture double's a post's visibility, there's no doubt about it. And people often search for images on Google and include it with their post content. Which is so wrong.

What are you saying, images that are found on Google are public anyway. Well, a picture's public visibility doesn't mean it can be re-used or edited. That can be considered as stealing images and may get you into trouble.

Here's a better way to use Google search to find images by knowing your usage rights:

I will not say this is a reliable way of finding images and I'm not doing it. But I'm sure many people are using Google image search to find pictures for their posts. Filtering your search by usage rights is definitely much better than using whatever you find on Google.

Personally, I don't think Bing Webmaster Tools get enough credit and I have noticed that users reaching sites through Bing search engines has been increasing.

Majorly expensive. My husband had his watch battery replaced 6 months ago for £25. Getting it done in a local shop today cost £9.

We've had a beautiful farmhouse kitchen table from Old Forge as well as a reclaimed timber bookcase (and we've just ordered another). Quality workmanship, decent prices and very nice people - I highly recommend.

Dan and his team did a great job renovating our very old, wonky windows. Being a very old house, nothing was easy but they kept at it and nothing was too much trouble. They were also very tidy and good value for money. Would definitely use again.

They saved my Macbook - quickly, no hassle and at a very fair price. Couldn't have asked for more.

On a visit to this cinema about a year ago I, along with a couple of Aussie gals had to leave this cinema because there was a RAT scratching around a few rows in front of us. We reported the incident to the front desk who might as well have shrugged their shoulders - they weren't going to be doing anything about it. Then, despite two complaint emails I heard absolutely nothing - no apology, no promise to clean the place up, no refund of my ticket. I'll never be going back, which is a shame, because as another reviewer says, it tends to show less mainstream films a while after they've left the other cinemas.
