for anyone still baffled by the new Collections feature - this is short and to the point.

Mace Moneta originally shared to Technology:
 
Just a quick note on collections, for those that haven't played around with them yet. There are two primary functions that you'll find useful:

1. You can unfollow a collection while still following a person. For example, this post is in my 'Technology' collection, as you can see from the blue header at the top. If you're not interested in these posts, just click on the title of the collection (Technology in this case), and you will see all posts in the collection. You'll also see a button that says 'FOLLOWING' - click it to unfollow. You'll still see all other posts by that person, just not those posted in that collection.

2. You can follow ONLY a collection, without seeing any other posts by that person. For example, if you're only interested in someone's cat posts, you can unfollow the person, and follow their cat collection. You can see a person's collections on the 'Collections' tab of their profile page.

Green grass makes me comfortable. It's worthy of peeking through. :)

filed under: creatures I saw today but didn't manage to capture well enough with my camera. these cows kept moooooving...

it was really interesting - I'd never seen highland cows before, didn't even know what they were at first.

other creatures that moved too fast/hid too well behind trees etc but it was fun to see anyway: deer, horses, robins on a tree.

the burger was yummy, but why do they think it's a good idea to serve food on paper that soaks up the sauce and ends up a gooey mush?

bring back normal plates, I say. (yes, I'm a middle aged fuddy duddy.)

(husband's food came on a normal plate, though his peas were served in this mini colander thingie. but mine came on this paper-covered wooden chopping board, with the chips* in a tin. hrmph.) (delicious though.)

*reminder for US folk: chips in the UK are not what you guys call chips. they're a bit like fries, only they're real and thick and ooh, I love chips...

anyway, my burger was yummy. so was my dessert, but I was too busy eating it to take pics.

I don't usually make that much mess :-P

That looks suspiciously like a Hall and Woodhouse meal - they've recently gone over to the wooden board and tin can method of serving their burger and chips.

A small dish with a single packaged creamer in it asked me for a close up last weekend. I'm like, sure, who am I to judge? and snapped the picture.

Introduction
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 networking 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 to create visual art.

In terms of the technical side, I'm a pretty clueless beginner with a simple point & shoot camera. 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.)

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

p.s. I don't do 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.

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