+Larry Fournillier there seems to be some problem, When I went to update my profile to 
David "Trinidaddy" (hon)  Stickney I got this

The nickname you've chosen appears to violate the Google+ Names Policy.

I guess I'll need some form or official certificate and one of those nifty checkmarks next to my name.. 

Oh, and where can I get Trinidaddy gear? I mean aside from shaving my head, is there some way to let the ladies know I'm an Honorary Trinidaddy? :) Or is putting TriniDaddy Creamy Sauce on everything I cook enough?

#khanacademy    #talentsearch  
This is the BEST idea I have seen in 2015 - it totally sums up my whole philosophy. I just love the wording at: and will post it here as I truly belive this is what videos should be about.. it reads..
Hi .. We’re on the hunt for brilliant explainers, captivating storytellers, and those who illuminate the complex, as if by magic.
  From May 18-June 21, we’re seeking video submissions from anyone and everyone with a passion for learning and a knack for making challenging concepts seem simple. If you love helping others understand the world, send us two of your videos!
  Winners will be featured on the Khan Academy website and flown to California to collaborate with and learn from the Khan Academy and YouTube teams.
 We like videos that demonstrate real passion for the material, cover the concepts deeply and rigorously, and feel conversational—as if your kind, insightful friend is clearly explaining a complicated concept to you at your kitchen table.
  If that sounds like you, we’d love to check out two of your videos. If that sounds like someone else you know, share this with them on Facebook, or forward them this email.
  Help us find the world’s greatest explainers. Together, we can amplify their voices and reach learners everywhere.

Onward, Elizabeth and the Khan Academy content team

How to Make a Story Sphere Part 1

With +Mike Downes's assistance and guidance, I've been diving deeper into creating good Photospheres.   I'm doing this to essentially  tell and share my island-life and culture story through a different medium.  I know it would be easier to use video,  but I feel with this technology, the viewer can be immersed into the space and have fun. :)
Recently Google Creative and +Grumpy Sailor Creative teamed up and added some 'spice' to #photospheres .  You can now embed audio to a photosphere image, I see this as a  huge benefit for all types of story-tellers and teachers.

In this video, +Mike Downes did an awesome job taking us through the steps in creating an educational Story Sphere.

This wonderful Beta product from the creative minds of +Grumpy Sailor Creative and  Google Creative - Australia, have taken #phtospheres  to the next level - audio can now be added to a photo-sphere!  This is game-changing and #awesomesauce !! 

My partner in 'photo-sphere' crime,, +Mike Downes, has created a fun and informative Story Sphere entitled The Field.  Follow the link to his blog or his check G+ Collections ( and experience the next iteration of photospheres.  Exciting times are definitely ahead! :)

#photosphereswithaudio   #audio  
t's no secret I'm a fan of the #photosphere, so when I hear Grumpy Sailor teamed up with Google Creative again - a dream come true.

On this page, you'll find some resources to get you started to view your first Story Sphere and understand what goes into the Making too.

Adding Street View to Trinidad and Tobago

Currently there are no Street Views on the islands of Trinidad and Tobago.  So, with the help of #photosphere  expert, +Mike Downes, I've embarked on a little project to create some Street Views, using #photospheres , of the places I frequent and add them to Google Maps.

Check out this #StreetView  of Bon Espoire Rd., Mayaro - Private entrance to the Gazebo.  This location is where I often go to unwind with family and friends.  Also follow this link to a recent party we had at the Gazebo -

Chief Evangelist of authentic Caribbean cuisine and culture.  My Google Plus mission is simple, I want to: educate, entertain and engage my followers.

I'm extremely easy-going and have an insatiable appetite for knowledge.  I also have a burning passion for cooking and because of it, I currently own and operate a small private catering business - Island Cuisine in Trinidad & Tobago. With the help of Google +'s premiere feature, Hangouts On Air(HOA), I'm able to spread my food knowledge and teach the rest of the world how to cook Caribbean cuisine.  

Watch my HOA show Learning How To Cook Caribbean with Larry Fournillier where I present cooking with a twist.  I have also embarked on a new cooking HOA, Food Stories, where there is a story behind each dish.   This is the premise of my Caribbean cooking show: Imagine me, in Trinidad, sitting in front of my computer and giving detailed cooking instructions to regular home-cooks who are thousands of miles away - definitely a novel approach in helping them create tasty Caribbean dishes. You can catch all of my LIVE, past shows and get all of the temptingly delicious recipes here: 

On November 5th, 2013,  I launched my Helpouts listings teaching individuals to cook tasty Caribbean cuisine.  Helpouts are one-on-one LIVE sessions where you invite me into your kitchen and I give you step by step instructions on cooking delicious Caribbean dishes.  Come and visit my LIVE Caribbean Cookbook Helpouts listings where I will teach you, great Caribbean cooking.
