This is the reason I invested in AA.

+Michael Ellis Go and have a look. I have a Google Apps domain, and there setting is there for me.
I do agree that most of the new settings and options not being available for the paying customers is a major pain.

I'm frightened and hopeful at the same time.   Nothing is more important to me than Google Contacts.   I hope they don't screw this up.

Had a great time at Headquarters today. Now it's time to get away from all of this snow!

Jeff Dunham - So do you like being in D.C.? 
Achmed the Dead Terrorist - I think some idiots must live here. 
Jeff Dunham - Why? 
Achmed the Dead Terrorist - For example, The Washington Monument. 
Jeff Dunham - Yes? 
Achmed the Dead Terrorist - It looks nothing like the guy. It looks more like a tribute to Bill Clinton.

That is easy to do.

I cannot wait until I'm back there. My wife went out with me in July and fell in love with it.

Room with a view.

Our last morning in San Francisco couldn't have been more beautiful. We're spending it enjoying a few more sights and tastes before we leave.

Introduction
You've probably never heard of me, and that's okay. In fact, that's what Google+ is all about. Unlike traditional social media, Google+ is based on the interest graph. Here you're free to connect with people that share the same interests and passions as you.

What I Post About: If you're looking to figure out what circles to include me in, here are a few things that I often post about:

- Travel
- Technology
- Food & Drink
- Google Glass
- Google+ Hangouts

I don't ever post about one certain thing, and I always try to create a conversation around my posts. I encourage everyone interested to join the conversation in the comments. It's a great way to meet new people that share your passion.

My Blog:

PeterGMcDermott.com - I am also available to write guest posts, just send me a message through my profile or ping me in a private post to let me know what you're looking for.

My Google+ Communities:

Community Moderators - This is a grassroots community of moderators that come together to share the experience and expertise in effort to help each other build stronger communities.

Blogging for Beginners - A community for new and intermediate bloggers to learn more about blogging.

Nashville+ - Your source for everything you need to know about Nashville, Tennessee. This community shares information about businesses, events, food, jobs, music, technology and more! If you're just visiting, or here to stay, Nashville+ is your source for everything Nashville.

If you're looking for the directory of my most prominent posts, I've moved them to my blog. You can find them here: How to Do Almost Anything on Google+. The post is a bit dated though, as a lot of the Google+ user interface has changed and evolved over time.

How to Use Google+: http://epublishunum.com/making-killer-google-plus-profiles/ - A great resource by my good friend Evo Terra.

Have we met? I like to keep track of everyone that I've met in person to ensure I keep them in my circles. If you'd like to tell me how we met, please do on the comments of this post: http://goo.gl/WLxr8A

So-So Experience Tonight with Great Recovery Normally, I would give this place 4 stars. Only not 5 because I think the beer is too expensive. $7 a pint is pushing it. Tonight the service was subpar. Our waiter offered us dessert before we had our pizza. Twenty minutes later we're still waiting. It's my wife's 30th birthday. This is embarrassing for me. I hope it's embarrassing for him. Update: Manager apologized, bought us a pie and a pair of cocktails and the server made up. Everything turned out great! As they say, all's well that ends well.

Esparza's is a Grapevine staple. Located right off of Main Street, Esparza's offers a wide variety of Mexican and Tex Mex dishes along with a full bar. There is patio seating outside which is a great way to enjoy the cooler months in Texas. Drinks here can get expensive, with most margaritas between $10-$15. With just a few drinks and standard fare, you can quickly rack up the tab. Also, the inside dining room by the bar is very noisy. Pro: right across the street from an EV charging station Con: the local birds tend to frequent the patio outside, looking for stray tortilla strips

This place sucks. For starters, the menu has over 50 entree options, including a $14.99 hot dog. How they are able to keep all of the exotic ingredients fresh and in supply to fuel this menu is beyond me. I ordered the brisket. A Texas staple. It had to have been the safe choice. Instead, I was brought what looked like sliced roast beef covered in spicy barbecue sauce and jalapeño slices. The meat was just "warm" and the barbecue sauce tasted like your generic grocery store variety. The beans were under seasoned and the Cole slaw was overly spicy. The best part? My fiancé was lucky enough to find a rotten potato in her French fries. We feel bad for the server who was kind, patient and took great care of us. Edit: upon informing the server of the rotten potato, we were informed that they come out of a frozen bag. SMH

An Enhanced Soul Food Experience Having moved to Texas from Tennessee, I was disappointed in the lack of true southern cooking options. In search of something new, my fiance and I decided to give this place a shot after leaving the Galleria and we are glad we did. The menu is a "modern/gourmet" take on soul food favorites like chicken and waffles and shrimp and grits. I had the shrimp, fish and grits with jalapeño grits, red eye gravy and an egg over easy. To sop up the extra gravy, I ordered some cornbread. The food was absolutely delicious and my soul will leave renewed.

El Ranchito combines delicious traditional cuisine with quirky decor and lively music, sure to make it a fun family experience for everyone. In my opinion, this is one of Dallas' best kept secrets.
