This is my Gold Plussers 3 Circle

This circle contains people who have Plussed my posts within the last few weeks.

They are all great people, and without a doubt, if you add them, you will have an even better Google plus experience as they plus, share and comment on your own posts.

Please plus, add and publicly share the circle so that everyone will benefit

If you are in the circle, then well done! You have reached the first level. To get to the next level and become a Team Elite Engager (and this also applies to people who aren't in this circle), there are two simple steps:

1. +1 this post
2. share this post

My Team Elite Engager Circles are shared regularly by the top Google Plus circle sharers (my Team Elite Engegers Red Edition got 348), and are typically reviewed and reshared weekly, so do yourselves a big favour and become one of the Elite!

I don't wish to offend anyone on the internet, so if you would like to be removed from my shared circles, please send me a private message and I won't share your profile in the future. The only way being shared will affect you is that you will get notifications that people have added you. You are under no obligation to add them back to your circles. If you don't add them back, they will most likely remove you from their circles after some time.

Many people are hesitant to deal with their hearing loss, because they feel that hearing aids are bulky and unsightly. However, for several years we have been able to offer "invisible in the canal", or "iic" hearing aids, and our selected manufacturers continue to strive to make them smaller and smaller. These iic hearing aids are smaller than the previously available "completely in the canal" or "CIC" models. At London Hearing Aids, we offer the finest selection of Invisible Hearing Aids from Oticon, Starkey, Phonak, Unitron, Siemens and ReSound, namely the Oticon iic, Starkey Soundlens, Phonak nano, Unitron micro, Siemens iMini and ReSound Verso iic. You can find out more about them here: http://www.londonhearingaids.co.uk/Invisible/invisible-hearing-aids-call-0203-397-9787-nano-iic-micro-soundlens.html

I couldn't weight to try my new batch of Ale!

It won't be fully flavored for another 2-3 weeks, but I had to try it on its weigh to the keg.
Lighten up, they're a little funny :)
.... on a scale of one to ten?

Great new Gmail-Google+ integration: smartphone photos show up in Gmail!

You know those Auto-Backup photos that move from your smartphone to Google+? Well now they're a click away in Gmail, too. The effect is that the pictures you take with your phone are just "there" when you want to email them to people. Nice!!

Not sure if bad spelling or bad typing.
Either way, it's my new favorite sign.

Driving home yesterday, I was compelled to go back and take a picture.

Do 'Total Views' really tell us anything?
I have over one million views, but almost 300,000 of them are from this one post!

Most of my posts get 1000-3000 views, but this one went crazy.  What can you truly learn from looking at the total views?
 
A little bit of genius found on top of our office coffee maker!

This is my TEAM ELITE ENGAGERS CIRCLE SHOCKING PINK EDITION

As it has been some time since I posted a #teamelite circle, my   #teamelite circles have a colour theme this time, so they are named Shocking Pink and Electric Blue. You'll notice there are only two of them this time, as I am now making sure everyone has added me before I share them.

*     #teamelite  members - see nearer the end for instructions for the next stage!     #eliteinnercircle *

I have had so many great     #teamelite  engagers that I need two whole circles - why are they     #teamelite  engagers, as opposed to normal engagers? These are the ones who have shared my shared circles - you have close to 1,400 circle sharers here for you to add across these three circles. You should add people in these circles, because they are active engagers and will brighten up your Google Plus experience. I'm not sure you could handle all that Google Plus engagement, so think twice before you do so!

My     #teamelite  circles are extensively shared by the top circle sharers on Google Plus, so naturally, membership of     #teamelite  is very exclusive and there is a lot of demand to get in.

To get in, and to ensure you stay in     #teamelite  you need to do the following:

1. Add me to your circles, if you haven't done so already
2. +1 this circle
3. Publicly share this circle to public, your circles and extended circles.
4. If possible, leave a comment on this circle so I know you have done the three steps above (I say "if possible" as my circle comments more often than not hit the 500 comment limit).

BE THE BEST OF THE BEST:
To get into my     #eliteinnercircle  you need to share my Shocking Pink and Electric Blue     #teamelite  circles, as well as my current   #eliteinnercircle circle. You can find them here:

Starkey Halo Made For iPhone Hearing Aids - Starkey Halo is due to launch on 31st March, and I'm very excited to get my hands on a pair of these high tech gadgets. What makes them special, apart from being able to correct nearly any hearing loss, is that they can pair directly with an iPhone 5 or newer and listen to music, hear YouTube videos, have a Facetime conversation, even take phone calls, with the sound going directly into the hearing aids.

Unless you have used this kind of technology before you're probably thinking it's no big deal - after all, you've been able to get bluetooth headsets for years, but until now you used to need an intermediate wireless device worn as a necklace or lapel clip to translate between Bluetooth and each manufacturer's own proprietary wireless protocol. As well as extra bulk, these would be one more gadget you'd have to remember to charge. The Made For iPhone protocol and hardware does away with all that as it's already built in to the hearing aids. Pretty neat, huh?

EXCELLENT! Everyone is friendly AND knowledgeable! Very convenient to campus and they validate parking for the garage so no trouble driving in. I was so impressed the first time I used them I went back for this year’s exam. They have very modern equipment and are as “paperless” as possible. (There was initial paperwork). I absolutely recommend them to anyone!

This is the place you have been looking for! Relaxed, not too many of the younger students. A lot of regulars (of all ages) call this place home. Plenty of flat screens with many of the sports packages, including NFL! Great beer garden out back. In addition to specials and happy hour, they have... HAPPY MINUTES! 3-3:15pm EVERY DAY! , a selection of the cheaper beers are $1 for a 10(or 12?) oz glass. One at a time, limit 3. Lonestar, Shiner bock, Dos Equis, Blue Moon, and a few others.
