My Collections; Revised
in my rebirth of G+ I am trying to take advantage of Collections more, hoping (I heard a rumor) they will hit iOS soon
 
I went through and changed all my collections up to better reflect what I share and want to read about. This post is to share with you what they are, how to find them, how to unsubscribe from them if you are not interested in a topic/interest, and how to make sure you don't miss anything if you really like a topic I have in my collections. Again, this is a work in progress, and I will try to update you as changes are made, collections are added/deleted, etc... (also if you have a requested collection you think I missed, please leave a comment to let me know)
 
Eats and Libations
 
Link: https://goo.gl/QkxlDJ
 
Yes, I love food and drink, sometimes I will just post what I am eating/drinking, sometimes I will share recipes, I am hoping to even create some fun videos with me making and consuming my fav's. I will also share cool places I visit to eat/drink and maybe even some related articles. Again, you can unfollow this collection at the link if you wish, you can also click on the notification bell in the menu of the collection and make sure you don't miss one post by turning them on. 
 
Sports
 
Link: https://goo.gl/e3aS8K
 
I love sports, not every sport, but I love most of them. This collection will be where I try to put my sports posts. Sports I generally follow include (but are not limited to) NFL, NASCAR, PGA Golf, NCAA Football and Basketball, Tennis, extreme sports, Olympics, and others. Again, you can unfollow this collection at the link if you wish, you can also click on the notification bell in the menu of the collection and make sure you don't miss one post by turning them on.
 
Productivity
 
Link: https://goo.gl/e48vK3
 
I am big on constantly trying to find ways to be more productive. As a business owner and entrepreneur, it is important to get as much done as I can, and be productive during my workday. Here is where I will post about that, articles from other sources, as well as my own techniques and findings. Again, you can unfollow this collection at the link if you wish, you can also click on the notification bell in the menu of the collection and make sure you don't miss one post by turning them on.
 
Health and Fitness
 
Link: https://goo.gl/hzTPX3
 
By no means am I any sort of trainer, fitness expert, or anything of the sorts. I am, however, trying to get in better shape. At 44yrs old at the time of writing this, I am more conscientious of my health and am striving to be healthier by eating better and exercising. This is where my posts about that will sit. Again, you can unfollow this collection at the link if you wish, you can also click on the notification bell in the menu of the collection and make sure you don't miss one post by turning them on.
 
Photography
 
Link: https://goo.gl/WZoxLV
 
I used to actually do more photography, and I still carry my Nikon D3200 around with me in my truck, it's just a little dusty :-) Hoping this collection will renew my interest, and maybe yours as well. Again, you can unfollow this collection at the link if you wish, you can also click on the notification bell in the menu of the collection and make sure you don't miss one post by turning them on.
 
My Homes
 
Link: https://goo.gl/mwjJ3U
 
As a home builder, I love to talk about what is going on with my homes. This is where you can find everything I will post about them, this could be my most active collection. From videos, pics, articles, and more. This is the dutchbuiltnc.com collection. Again, you can unfollow this collection at the link if you wish, you can also click on the notification bell in the menu of the collection and make sure you don't miss one post by turning them on. (You really should turn notifications on for this on ;-)
 
Housing
 
Link: https://goo.gl/k01FqP
 
This collection will house (pun intended) all the things I find interesting about my industry. That could include trends, news, images, etc related to everything that impacts housing/homes. Again, you can unfollow this collection at the link if you wish, you can also click on the notification bell in the menu of the collection and make sure you don't miss one post by turning them on. 

So, there you have it. A couple of these don't have anything in them yet, others I have been using a little. My goal is to use them more to segregate my content into places you, the user, can find common interests and remove uncommon interests. Please let me know if you have any feedback, and I will update as needed.

So, what you're suggesting is that I need to actually motivate in the mornings? Before coffee??? I don't know. I just don't know if I'm up to it. I'm getting tired just thinking about it so I'm going to stop. Maybe I'll go to bed now, I'm exhausted. ;)

Score! Love my local bottle shop! I also grabbed a 6 pack of Carolina Brewing Pale Ale tall boys for only $6.

That Sexual Chocolate Imperial Stout gets a consistent 91+ score on Beer Advocate, and it wasn't cheap, so am looking forward to the right moment to crack it.

Beer, drink it!

Yeah, I kinda doubt that one!
There's no shortage of cauliflower dishes on Los Angeles restaurant menus. Perhaps you've had the cauliflower and raisins at Otium, or the porridge of cauliflower and millet at Odys & Penelope on La Brea Avenue. Or maybe you've had the cauliflower tacos at Colonia Tacos in Whittier.

Who needs a little extra Drive space?
 
Want a little extra Google Drive space?

Last year at this time Google offered us all an extra 2GB of Google Drive storage just for running a quick Security Checkup on your Google Account.

Well, Google is running the offer again this year. You can get another 2GB of free Drive space just for running the checkup. The Drive storage is good for the life of your account, unlike our 100GB Chromebook offer. 

You can access the checkup here, it took me about 60 seconds from start to finish.

Go check it out!

We had reservations for 6:45 after getting married earlier in the day. We arrived about an hour early and sat at the bar for a few cocktails, the staff was unbelievably hospitable, and the bartender made some wonderful bourbon recommendations. We were seated promptly at 6:45, she ordered a roasted filet (medium) I ordered a grilled NY Strip (medium rare) and we shared an order of the gratin potatoes and mixed mushroom. Everything was perfect, and maybe the best steak I have ever had. Oh, and the bread with the crunchy salted crust! WOW.

I play at this course 1-2 times a month, it has truly come a long way in the last decade. GPS on ALL golf carts, NEVER cart path only, and the best hot dogs ever at the clubhouse!. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, and the course is well kept. My favorite course this side of town.

Always nice rooms, comfortable beds, and friendly staff. I do wish they would leave a couple of regular glasses in the rooms, the dixie cups only last one drink before they are leaking from the bottom. Do that and you get 5 stars.

For the most part had a good stay, need fridge in room for late night cocktails and snacks though! They tried to double charge me for valet parking but removed it when I brought it up. Overall good stay, great location walking distance to everything downtown have to offer!
