This post builds on two recent posts: Social Video using webRTC and Blab.im live video and chat for the Police.

Blab.im have declared they will do Public not Private where Appear.in have said they do Private not Public - this could easily be a match made in heaven (heaven of course being the cloud).

my tip, never share/post/upload a photo to plus.google.com as you will never see it at photos.google.com again .. I would upload that photo to photos.google.com or https://drive.google.com or even https://picasaweb.google.com ..  btw yes i know no scret photo stuff at google is ongoing,, but when you are looking to share a photo, say to a blab chat and you are looking in 3 separate places, just time delay & frustrating ..

a month ago we have a post by google called everything in it's right place and now today we see, for me anyway, the severing of google+ -- youtube comments .. a real bummer for me -- not sure i will have the energy to cross post the many thoughts i have on youtube videos to repost at google+ .. In the last four years I've made over 24,000 posts at g+ however I can only really see myself posting at my post and at youtube from now on ..
 .. my legacy blog is Mike Downes Media www.whatsinkenilworth.com (made by blogger, and powered by the One Google login that posers all ..)

On a four mile walk across London yesterday, Somerset House was my highlight. When you step through those three arches, you enter a quiet hidden world of tranquillity. The courtyard has little chairs where people sat alone read a paper book, just brilliant.

Be careful with online prices (at Tesco Direct) compare to instore prices on larger items ie a TV. We had issues which ended up with a price haggle, thankfully Duty Manager agreed with us in the end, and gave us the Online Price.

On passing by the yard, I was totally impressed by the display of freshly cut timber posts. The smell was excellent too. Here are a few photos, I would certainly loot at more uses to these posts, sure as a fence, but from what I've seen they deserve to be hung on the wall as an art exhibit :)

Fantastic visit here today for a christening. Lovely to see such a friendly and welcoming Revd. The Church Hall adjoins the Church with such excellent facilities, see the photos..

Benefit have moved to a brand new Head Office in the Marconi Building (former New Street Works), I've attached a comp slip with the new address. It was lovely to see some of the radio memorabilia on display - so important as from 1912 this was the first ever purpose built radio factory. Visitors to Benefit Cosmetics should be aware 'Marconi Building' is also another the name of one of the local Anglia Ruskin University faculties, so make sure you arrive at New Street :)
