Yes, this is what I do when I see a dog that looks like Benjy...
His name is Goco. He doesn't really care what I say, but he is darn cute.

Thanks +Richard Wooding

This Chrome add-on could come in useful: http://projectnaptha.com/

Project Naptha automatically applies state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms on every image you see while browsing the web. The result is a seamless and intuitive experience, where you can highlight as well as copy and paste and even edit and translate the text formerly trapped within an image.

Another meme-making tools +martin shervington 
What would you say if we told you that it's possible to copy, translate, edit and even erase the text inside any image you find on the internet? Well,

It just seems to me that the images would suffer with all these watermarks :(

This is great. I love the map connection in the beginning.  Showed the kids this afternoon for a little geography and history lesson.  Then checked out some of our favorite places on the map!

+martin shervington I can't go super hot (I'm a wimp) but I do love it. I used to eat it at least 3x a week when I worked at a place that had curry right next door!

The Risks and Rewards of Humour (yes, with 'u') in Business!
Join me, and a gathering of a few good folks to chat about when/where/what and how to use humour in business, and probably in life too.
Let's face it. We've all been there when we tell that joke, do that thing, just because it was there to be done. But is it always a good idea?
Well, this is a fantastic group to explore the topic...
You'll see +Tim Washer say something funny about "Wales not being a real country"(he does stand-up), +Brian Carter say that we can take over the world with bacon loving cats (he does stand-up too), +Andrea Vahl brings characters and improv into social (so expect some improv!).
And what about me? Well, I'll be your host, your amateur comedy compare and guide for the show. (I do stand up, but am funnier lying down).
Hope to see you all then!

This Hangout On Air is hosted by martin shervington. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Morning all!
I've got a busy morning of meetings, hangouts and podcasts.
Feeling rather chipper (hence the bright colours); surf's up too :D
Have an excellent day one and all.

Hangouts - new look on the page!
Thanks +Ronnie Bincer 
 
New look for Hangouts Page - added info and links to mobile app
The Desktop version of Google Plus now sports a new updated info panel and links to Mobile Hangout Apps.
Choose Hangouts from the left side dropdown menu and you'll see the new updated look for the Hangouts page. 

You can still Start a Hangout on Air (HOA) right from the first screen via the Blue Button, but you may need to slide down a bit to get to it. The link to get to the Hangouts page directly is https://plus.google.com/u/0/hangouts

Hangouts are the Magical Communication Tool offered by Google+ for video meetings, they can be private or public. If public, then they are commonly broadcast live as HOA and automagically recorded as videos on YouTube when you're done. 

The other version of Hangouts start up from that little green quote thing in the upper right of the page, but only for Profile accounts, not available for Page accounts. Those are little text/chat meeting rooms called Hangout Message Boxes (HMB). They can easily turn into a private Hangout Video Call with the click of a button among those invited into that HMB.

Loved this place. Very cool bar, with super friendly bar and waiting staff. I especially liked the bar girl who looked like a pixie; cute and with some awesomely entertaining facial expressions. Can I say that on a Google Local review? Yes, yes I can. Anyway, this place has some style, good music and the clientele were lovely too. And it is dog friendly outside. Recommended. p.s. if the beautiful lady working behind the bar would like to give in touch then drop me an email to...ok, that would be a bit much, but yes I really should have asked you name and I hope you don't mind your me making your likeness to a pixie. You are especially adorable when you bite your lower lip after you talk. Really should stop this review now as it is getting a little gushing. Ok, I'm gone :)

The best fish tacos so far! I went with the grilled Mahi-Mahi with the spicy sauce (the one in the fridge). Love this place.

The best Indian restaurant in Bristol. I have eaten there...um...100 times+ over 12 years. The staff are so helpful and the food is so darn tasty. I tend to ask for "no oil" and they always make sure I am happy. What else is there to say? Just give it a go!
