thank you very much for mentioning me again, you always think about me, and I appreciate our friendship very much Abhish!! I can't deny I would love to have it, I actually put a similar one on my amazon wish list less than a week ago. I have a sony cybershot, and I feel very fortunate to have this as it was a gift from my husband three years ago now. +Mike Shaw
I would love to have it, but honestly, I feel I would not do it justice. I wouldn't even know how to operate it, or what the buttons were for. I think perhaps someone who is donating more time, like the gentleman above with children, or someone the others mentioned would certainly know how to use it better than I and thus be able to create some true art with it. I also think +abhishek chamaria
is being modest, and I'm sure he would love to have this himself, so I would like to nominate him. Do you know he edits all his images on his camera? I didn't until I recommended some software to him. I can agonize over a small burn for an hour, as to the affect it has on the viewer, and he does all his editing in two minutes on a camera::::::::::::;shaking my head:::::::::::::: if only I had such confidence.
Your question about G+ though, has inspired me to write. So I'm going to write on another posting about that, if anyone wants to read it on my blog in a few days they can. It will be a unique story that I can guarantee.
The most importantly the reason why I am posting here since as abhish stated, I have been neglecting g+ lately, not because I didn't want to be here but rather I've had some big projects, and I found out 2 weeks ago I'm moving away from my island soon. I love my island, it's been home to me for the last 7 years. Anacortes is my home, and Roche Harbor is my favorite day out. (ref: "http://www.anacortes.org
) As I said we've lived here seven years, longer than anywhere in my whole adult life, considering I'm 50 now, I think that's saying allot.
G+ is more than "how" it changed my life. G+ is where I come when I need to make sense of the world. It's where I come for stimulating honest conversations, fun times and virtual snowball fights!! G+ hasn't just changed my life, it's changed the worlds life. Google has changed the WORLDS Life More than iPAD, more than MS, More than ANY other company In the World. ( I'm not going to count IBM during the holocaust because well, I'm just not, and they certainly don't deserve any recognition)
In the mean time I would like to say that Google has change the world in ways we only dreamed of the internet doing, And I mean dreamed of.. we would all sit around having coffee and would dream of how this or that wold change the internet and where that would lead. We dreamed of a day just like today when we could not only talk, but see the person who was standing in a room, much like our own, half a world away from us. The global ramifications are staggering. And for one like myself who enjoys numbers, I can honestly say they are immeasurable.
But Google is providing the medium, it's the people on Google+ that make Google+. I've had to work on Facebook for a while, and I can say even though I've met some nice people there, People with intellect are there only to work, and therefore promoting themselves or someone/thing else all the time, there is always a 'competitive' feel to it.. Here on google+ people are so much more about "just enjoying life" they are not about promoting themselves, they are not in a constant state of competition. It's calm here, peaceful here.
I've wondering and thought long and hard about why this is, why there is such a difference between Facebook and Google+?! One conclusion I've drawn from the empirical evidence, is the lack of advertising here. That perhaps this constant bombardment of advertising subconsciously affects individuals moving them into a state of heightened awareness when lends itself to overaggressive behavior.
My other conclusions which I have no evidence for is just that G+ are nicer, more educated people, more "global" people, that just want to have a little fun and goodness in their lives.
Personally I don't really care which of my hypothesis are correct, I just want to be able to spend more time on google+!! :) lol, almost done with these projects. I've been saying that for three months now.
Thank you again, so very much +abhishek chamaria
for always thinking to include me!!
