Oh my... It took me 17 years...
Who would have thought that this becomes true after so many years. It shakes my plans upside down but it's worth it. Finally.
Next step: Finding the perfect job for next year.

Sorry +John Elstone for getting the distance between us 😂

#HelloUSA #DreamsComeTrue thanks +The White House

+Oren Elbaz Your perspective is deliberately negative and because you overlooked essential elements in terms of pricing. The cost of pollution in coal and nuclear are not factored into the production costs.
PV systems usually have the advantage to be where the power is needed; on roofs of houses and farm buildings. So often account for the net costs incurred in central supply.
There have been great advances in photovoltaics. The net final prices are constantly increasing and are in Germany at just 30 cents per kWp. Who has a solar roof and a battery, as announced here, is on the safe side.

>>::||Circle Management||::<<

First Up Before I begin. Let me just say. Glad to have you all on board! And that there is no right way of managing your circles. Just Your Way

You must choose a method that suits you and your personality.

Also these are methods I've learnt from others on Google+. Some of which I can not for the life of me remember who I saw it from. If anyone knows please let me know So I can amend my post to acknowledge them and their ideas on circle management.

The Method I have chosen is not of my own creation and thought process, but it's similar to how I've set up my Labels in Gmail.
This way Circle Management was shown to me by +Ahmed Zeeshan,  he in turn was shown this by another early adopter of +Google+. And to me, it just made sense.
https://plus.google.com/+AhmedZeeshan/posts/iu72BpJPtfd
+Ahmed Zeeshan has since moved on from this method, and I haven't chased up which method he now uses in any great detail.
https://plus.google.com/u/0/+AhmedZeeshan/posts/JVcEXV7bhRb

Methods

Big Circles

One way of organising your circles is this. And is probably the most simplistic Circle Management Methodology.

Advantages: being that it is easy to set up and easy to sort people and pages into one of two categories.

Disadvantage: Everyone in the share circle sees everything you post. You have no way of sharing posts with people interested in certain things such as Doctor Who, Cats or Knitting for instance. It's not easy to remember for most people who likes what.

The How

Create two circles.

Put everyone whom you want to see your posts in Circle one, The Share with circle.
And the put everyone whose posts you want to see and read in the other circle, The Read circle.
You're Done!

Big Circles, Little Circles

This way is similar to the above method, but allows you to target your audience better.

Advantages: Fairly Simple, allows you to define who you share certain posts with. Family and friends etc.

Disadvantages: Not too many as far as I can see. It all depends on how OCD you get with your little circles.

The How


Create two circles,
Put everyone whom you want to see your posts in Circle one, The Share with circle.
And the put everyone whose posts you want to see and read in the other circle, The Read circle.
Create a few smaller circles, Family, Friends, Work. Frienemies
Put appropriate people into correct circles.
You're Done!


OCD Circles

This is how I manage my circles. It works for me, and maybe it will work for you. Or not.

Advantages: Share things with the right people.

Disadvantages: Initial set up takes up a lot of time and patience.

The How

For this method I've provided a template of how I set mine up.
And it goes a little something like this.

1. Bookmarks (no one goes in this)
1.1 Probationary (New People you're not sure which circle to put in)
1.2 Can See About Info (people you trust to see your about info)
1.2.1 All About Info(Can see all your about page)
1.3 Can See Photos (People you trust to see your photos)
1.4 Can Chat With Me (People that hangout with me without having to send a request)
1.5 Locations (Can see my City Location) 
1.5.1 PinPoint (Can see my PinPoint Location)
1.6 Shown On Profile (People Who get shown as people I follow)

2. Family (all family and relations go in this circle)
2.1 Immediate(only my dad and brother are in here so far)
2.2 Close(all close Relations in here)
2.2.1 uncles & aunties
2.2.2 cousins
2.2.3 nephews & nieces
2.3 Distant (all distant relations in here)
2.3.1 uncles & aunties
2.3.2 second cousins
2.3.3 nephews & nieces
2.4 family friends(you can put this here or under friends)

3. Friends (all friends go here)
3.1 close friends (all close friends in here, "The Inner Circle")
3.1.1 guys 
3.1.2 girls
3.2 regular (all other friends in here)
3.2.1 guys
3.2.2 girls
3.3 school (all school friends here)
3.3.1 elementary/primary school
3.3.1.1 School 1(if you attended more than one school add sub circles with the school)
3.3.1.2 School 2
3.3.2 high school (all high school friends)
3.3.2.1 High School 1
3.3.2.2 High School 2
3.3.3 tertiary education (all college/uni friends)
3.3.3.1 Tertiary School 1
3.3.3.2 Tertiary School 2
3.4 Via others (friends you know through others) 

4. Work colleagues (all work friends here)
4.1 company one
4.2 company two
4.3 company three

5. Acquaintances (People you know but not all that close with.)

6.6.6. Frienemies (people who share interesting things but you are not particularly fond of)

7. Following (all people you don't know but share things that interest you)
7.1 artists
7.2 architects
7.3 anime & comics
7.4 comedians
7.5 actors & actresses
7.6 googlers (people that work at google)
7. Well you all get the idea!!

8. Pages (all pages that you follow)
8.1 sub divide by subject or interest topic like the following circle


This is how I manage my circles.
Yes it is VERY OCD, but it works for me.

I hope you can take something out of this post and use it to help you.

Hope to see you around in the Stream!

Shut up and take my money - Not really because of BF but about all the possibilities you could take use of with this system. Love the idea from our Austrian neighbours.

I want it freaking now (that, and a PC to handle the 90hz 1080p requirements of the Occulus on current gen games on at least medium settings).  What is the approximately release date?

Besuchten dieses Restaurant fuer einen Geburtstag mit einem Tisch von 12 Personen, also durchaus Potential fuer ein gutes Geschaeft und Mund-zu-Mund Propaganda. Leider hier nicht Willkommen: - Tintenfisch-Streifen roh - überladener Tisch 1 Stunde lang nicht abgeräumt - Getränke nach dreimaligem Bestellen nicht erhalten - Rip-Eye Steak 1,5cm dicke als Argentinisches Rumpsteak verkauft Gastronom meinte ein hoeherwertiges Produkte wuerde der Kunde ja nicht bezahlen wollen.

Die Galeria Kaufhof. Ein Urgestein des Handels in Offenbach welches Karstadt ueberlebte. Nun von der Atmosphäre her macht es hier wirklich nicht viel Spaß. Der Laden sieht eher wie ein größerer Ramschladen aus nur mit höheren Preisen. Hier muss unbedingt was gemacht werden. Renovierung ist Pflicht! Die Auswahl ist zwar recht groß aber das sind die Preise teils auch... Einige Berater sind wohl eher widerwillig dort oder unterhalten sich lieber mit den Kollegen. Ich versuche es den Laden zu vermeiden. Sorry.

Hat immer fuer einen geoeffnet! Gerade nach einer wilden Nacht in Frankfurt ist hier ein kurzer Abstecher immer Willkommen. Typisch McDonalds daher nix besonders anzumerken oder gar zu beschweren.

Leon Garcias... War ich Anfangs ein wenig verwundert als ich diesen Laden in Offenbach hab entstehen sehen, bin ich nun nach all den Jahren immer noch von überzeugt. Er taugt was. Das Essen war zu 90% immer super und das Personal freundlich. Jede Küche hat mal gute und schlechte Tage aber selbst die schlechten Tage macht das Personal und die Atmosphäre wieder wett. Reservieren waere am Wochenende angebracht!

Hier macht etwas gehobeneres brunchen Spaß! Der Preis ist zwar ein wenig hoeher aber die Zutaten und Speisen sind erstklassig. Im Sommer lohnt es sich draussen zu sitzen und der Live Musik zu lauschen. Personal ist sehr freundlich! Erinnerung: Hotel und nicht Eck-Kneipe!
