+Mark Hanson thank you! I'm very impressed with how much of this sort of detail the phone camera can capture!

This Google Now thing is way cool.

because I'm on holiday in Wales, it's offering me English to Welsh translation.

It feels like I've got a quiet unobtrusive valet on my phone. A kind of Jeeves.

(yes, I know it can only do this because I'm giving the goog access to all sorts of information. I trust them with it not because I think they're saints, but because it's in their best interests to keep our data safe.)

+Lionel D it's not there yet tho. But, if/when they combine Assistant with Now, it will be quite formidable

Oooooh, the possibilities...

if you're into mobile photography, why not join in


Life doesn't always go as planned. Things break down, fall apart, crack and stop working. The story does end there though. That's where we pick up the camera and make something new of it.

Please be sure to share only one theme image per day, and shared to the Theme Category. Don't forget to check out what others have contributed. Get creative, as some themes will have more than one way to be interpreted.

Feel free to share the weekly theme post with others to spread the word!

Capture your world. Share your artistry.

So today I decided to check out a café that looked nice.

I didn't know my mocha and chocolate brownie would come with a lecture on the environmental implications of using paper napkins...


(and the brownie wasn't all that great either.)

I probably would've left a note saying, "I can compost the paper napkin, you know. Or maybe you want to use cloth napkins and take on the costs of cleaning them?" along with the tip...

Random question for native English speakers

When you talk about a maths problem, is there a term you use for referring to the thing you need to find out? Or do you just say "the x"?

For example, say you're told that a train leaves London at 3pm and how fast it's going, and another leaves some other place etc etc - there's all these bits of information you're given, and then you have to work out, say, when the two trains will meet - is there a general term for that?

Yours, someone who knows English but didn't learn maths in English (and in Hebrew we have a word for this thing, so I'm wondering what it's called in English)

It depends on the context but general we ask for the solution, variable, or unknown understanding the x or y is what we are talking about. If we have more than one, we might us x variable or y variable.

"Humphrey has lost his sense of right and wrong. You've still got one. You just don't use it much."

beautiful moment in Yes Minister, when he moans to his wife, saying: I've become as bad as Sir Humphrey...

Being real on social media since 2007
Shalom. greetings. aloha. hi. nice of you to pop round. put your feet up. coffee? there's biscuits in that tin over there, help yourself.

Who am I?

My name is Meirav. I'm human. My penguin's name is Quentin. I enjoy meeting fellow humans online. I like good intelligent discussion, as well as a good healthy dose of frivolity. I'm fascinated by human nature. I love words and languages. I'm bilingual - grew up in Israel speaking both Hebrew and English. I write. I blog. I have a tendency to speak my mind, sometimes a bit bluntly. (That means if I pay you a compliment, you can know it's for real.) I'm married. I live in England. I'm Jewish. I'm a fallible and imperfect follower of Jesus. I like cats, though currently I don't have any pets. I love chocolate. I'm an introvert, which means I need lots of solitude and quiet and time to hear myself think, and I don't do well in crowds and/or noise, which is part of why I find online social media so valuable. I love reading. I don't currently own a TV. I have a strong aversion to order and structure, and a deep need for a certain level of chaos in my environment. I am annoyingly pedantic and tend to take words very literally. I like buying pretty stationery. I like purple, and pink. and I like randomly listing stuff :)

I keep rewriting the bit about photography here, because it's been evolving so much. I started out (in 2010) just pointing at things and snapping, but this whole thing grew on me and now I'd say I am someone who uses a camera (and sometimes also software) to create visual art.

I'm not a pro in any sense of the word. I'm a self-taught amateur with a simple point & shoot camera (and a mobile phone). But I get a huge kick out of taking shots of stuff that I see and sharing some of them with the rest of the world. I'm fascinated by shapes and textures and colours, and I love chopping a random rectangle out of the world around me and presenting just that bit, without context - it's the aesthetics I'm into, not the documentary value. Sometimes I mess around with a photo and turn it into an image that is not attempting to be realistic. Digital photo editing tools allow me to take a piece of photography and use it as art material. One of my friends said that what I do is painting without paint. I like that.


If I've added you, that could be because you said something intelligent in a comment somewhere/your posts look interesting/your profile looks like you might be fun to get to know/I think I know you from somewhere/someone I respect recommended you/a whole load of other reasons. It doesn't mean I expect you to add me back, nor does it mean I necessarily want to be your bestest friend forever and ever. If you want to add me and read my posts, that's cool! Most of my posts are public, and comments are very welcome (as long as they're on topic and courteous, obviously). If you interact with me on my posts, I might get to discover what a fab person you are and add you back. (Though it's perfectly ok to just read quietly and not say anything, if that's what you're comfortable with.) (Also: if you need to respond privately, see this post.)

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I look forward to getting to know you more.

p.s. I don't do video or voice Hangouts. I much prefer typing to people than doing that face-to-face live conversation thing where you have to think up answers on the spot and you can't edit and rephrase or delete that totally stupid rash comment - it's bad enough having to do that offline, I don't come to G+ for more of the same. I'm a socially awkward penguin. That's just the way it is.

Yes, I have a wall. Yes, you can write on it.
