A little something fun I threw together on my #iPhone at an #Easter egg hunt this morning.

Saw a wild turkey today while playing #Ingress. Had to leave the game to snap a photo. By then, the turkey was gone. Too bad the game has no camera feature (that I can find, anyway). #Noob

Captions and transcripts are frequently overlooked but are the most important SEO source documentation you can have on your YouTube video. Search engine "AI" isn't quite there yet as far as being able to correctly determine semantic context from a video (which it sees as a series of images and an audio stream). Add those captions and transcripts!
4 Simple tips for making your YouTube videos SEO friendly and how these videos can improve your website’s rankings & brand awareness.

I'm always conflicted when it comes to using background images and video in content strips on a website. On the one hand, it's very "noisy" when presenting text on top of it. On the other hand, it really does grab one's attention and draws you into the page. Clients seem to really love it, too, because it's part of the trend they see happening on lots of other sites.
Color plays a significant role in web design. Color science can subconsciously alter your viewers' minds to increase conversion rates with subtle color cues.

I've tried tons of free website hosting services, both out of curiosity and when helping my clients. Trust me when I tell you that you get what you pay for. Pay a few dollars a month, even for the discount hosting, and you'll get more value from that than from "free" hosting.
Free hosting is not a good practice for a legitimate business website. Learn why you should NOT use free web hosting & how to find a better alternative.

#Ingress  Noob question: What is the story behind stuff coming out of portals when they're hacked? Are the aliens sending them through? Are they spontaneously generated technology (a la Transformers)?

The stuff is called xm and it is explained as the medium in which creative thought, shared memories etc exist. I.e. The ikashik (sp?) Field. The shapers live in this realm and use the portals as a way to influence our world and collect copies of interesting people to interact with. Check YouTube for older audio media

I usually have to take my dog to the vet and have him sedated to get his claws clipper but The Paw Shop has some kind of mystical power that makes it easy!

"Urgent" care is not what you'll receive at this GuideWell location. That's because, when I was there in the late afternoon, they had only one doctor for more than 20 rooms. I was there a total of 2 hours, most of it sitting in the examination room. Total time with the doctor was _maybe_ 15 minutes. Intake was a joke as well as the receptionist had me fill out someone else's paperwork. I was the one who had to catch the error when the nurse called me by the wrong name when taking my vitals. BIG error there that could have injured me (or that other guy) if given the wrong care. The staff were extremely unprofessional and didn't seem to know what they were doing half the time. When I asked not to be billed for such terrible service, I was told "Well, you did get to see a doctor, so we will be charging you for the service." The next day I called to dispute the charge and got someone halfway friendly who apologized and said she would ensure I wasn't billed. But, as I expected, today the charge appeared on my credit card. That person is out of the office and now I have to wait until she returns to straighten this all out. My reason for visiting was less painful than this experience. Not worth the trouble!

Showed up a few minutes after closing time. The guy inside just shook his head when I showed him the equipment I was trying to return. Guess it was too much trouble to walk over and open the door and take the equipment. Guess it'll be cheaper for all of us to have them pick up the equipment at my house.

Nicer rooms than usual, at least on first glance. The room smelled like a high school locker room. We temporarily fixed that by spraying deodorant around the room. There are no screens in the windows and, like another complaint from 11 months ago, the AC is STILL broken. We're roasting, with the window open, and hoping bugs don't come in. But, hey, it has a gas fireplace...not that this would be of any use to us. Might help the folks who stay here in the winter and the central heating isn't working properly. Really, really, really bad WiFi. I need reliable WiFi to run my business from the road and I choose Motel 6 to keep lodging costs down. I guess I get what I pay for. I barely open a web page and it stops connecting. This is a complaint I've had with ALL Motel 6 connections. It's 2015. Please fix this.

The owner was very helpful in showing me how to wash a comforter. I wish there were more places to sit, though.

I called the phone number but it didn't provide an option to talk to a person. Just gave me a message about open/close hours. I wanted to ask a question about some shoes, but I guess I have to actually walk in the doors.
