Well, it has been a really busy couple of weeks; and I want to thank you all. There are so many cool things happening, including the new commoogle extension for Chrome, the Academy (the Acatemy - yes, that one too), and general community fun and frolics.
So, be safe, stay well. And thanks for being around :)

This is wild! Why did I ever have to complete 6 years of music school to be able to play an instrument? I should have saved the money to buy these gloves instead.  :-)

Here's my hangup with Google plus.
I go to the general news stream, find things that interest me or make me laugh or make me think, and I'll either +1 it or share it or comment on it. The moment I move on, I neither know nor care who posted it. If you asked me their name five seconds later, I'd be at a total loss.
I think I don't have the brain for G+.

How to find the 'social number' of a Google+ Page.
Useful tip as this disappeared from being shown on Pages 'within Google+' when the view count appeared...
Thanks +Eric Enge, h/t +Martin Holmes 
Sweet Tip! Get the Google+ Social Proof Number of Any G+ Page
Quick, easy way to view a Page's total +1's

We got this from +Dejan SEO's amazing "Comprehensive Study of Google Plus Content and Brand Visibility* (see it at

When Google+ introduced view counts two weeks ago, they took away the visible total +1 count that used to appear in the cover image of brand Pages. That number was a useful "social proof" number, as it represented a sum of all the brands followers, +1's (on posts and on it's site), members in owned communities, and others.

The number still exists though, and is displayed on the official Google+ Badge on a brand's website, if they display it. But as +Dan Petrovic pointed out, you can use Google's Google+ Badge Tool to quickly get the number for any page on G+:

1. Go to the Google+ Badge Tool:
2. Change Google+ User to "other"
3. Enter the page's URL

The page's total +1 number will appear in the preview image for the badge.

If you found this tip useful, please reshare. Thanks!

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 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!
