Under that cold exterior...

"If you're willing to take the journey, brave the cold and forge a path, there's no telling the beauty you may discover just below the surface."

Well, okay, I might have had a clue what was underneath. +Rhonda Britton​ created a beautiful painted rug on the back patio this last summer! We got a light accumulation of snow yesterday and I stepped out to make a little design for her before we left for work. I enjoy creating with images and words, so this came together this morning whilst procrastinating getting out from under the covers. I took the picture on my cell phone, edited with Snapseed, and then thought Prisma added a little visual pop. I love that modern technology, for all it's distraction, also provides an easy way for anyone to create and share what's in their head. There was a time, not that long ago, when most of us could only envision, but had neither the time, tools, or talent to translate what was in our mind's eye to the physical world.

Unreadable Web

I've been watching this trend, albeit with less ability to read about it clearly. ;-)

Thanks +Brian Fields​!
It's not your eyes. . .
I thought my eyesight was beginning to go. It turns out, I’m suffering from design.

LEGO Klingon Warship

Amazing build.

Thanks +Jason Wiley​ and +Craig Froehle​!

h/t +Robin Mason
It was a project eight years in the making—well, technically nine now. One LEGO fan has built his own Star Trek Klingon Bird of Prey using about 25,000 blocks, based on a virtual blueprint he started all the way back in 2008.

Letting Go of the Need to Please

Ah yes, resentment is a definite red flag. Good article.

Thanks +J. Hancock​ and +Tiny Buddha​!
“Nice is sweet and accommodating and agreeable. Nice is polite. But nice does not describe what we believe in. It does not indicate where our boundaries are. When I think of people I admire the most, some genuinely fantastic human beings come to mind. But in all honesty, most of them are not particularly ‘nice’ people. They have character and integrity. They are compassionate and kind. But that is not the same thing as nice. Compassion and kindness requires courage and boundaries. Niceness does not.” ~Sarah Powers
Being "nice" can lead to resentment. We need to be authentic, set boundaries, and risk disapproval in order to respect ourselves and meet our own needs.

Long, but worth the watch. Not entirely because of the topic - which in itself is a wonderful explanation of true patriotism - but because of the thought out and personal way it is delivered. This is the type of speech that can help start to wake someone up from their mass media induced coma.

Thanks +Joseph Fischer​!
Real Patriotism explained. Looking at it in a way which might make you consider wanting someone else's land or resources like cheating on the land you have, your county. Love it, don't try to change it, use it for good and be good to it.

Absolutely awesome! I remember some of the first comic books I collected were with Uncle Scrooge, so I'm especially excited!

Pop culture nut. Geek. Eclectic tastes. I follow people who post things that I find new and unique, tweak my funny-bone, make me think, or stimulate conversation. I try to post the same way.

Disclaimer post about me. Posted a while back but still stands.

Below is a list (almost certainly incomplete) of some favorite times here on the plus. Posts are fleeting things and so are so many conversations and happenings with wonderful people whom I would never know if it were not for G+. These links are all community centered and most certainly inspired by and created for my family/friends and cohorts here.

April 2015 - Engaged!

Ongoing - International Take a Picture Under Your Desk Day
The first International Event with the absurdly long hashtag! #InternationalTakeAPictureUnderYourDeskDay is celebrated on the second Friday of November.Celebrated 2012, 2013, and, because life took some turns, 2014 was missed. Watch out 2015 because we will be back! This started with a conversation and challenge to the wonderful Miss +Jo Lane, who was the first under the desk and the spearhead to the phenomenon. Search on the hash-tag for many many pics of G+ peeps.
2015-Mar - Musical Snowman Challenge
It was time for a 3rd big challenge with my brother. While still cold out and snow on the ground, we decided to turn someone into a living snowman. What better way than turning to our G+ friends to join in the fun. Spoiler: I finally won one! Warning: Keith in a swimsuit (buried in snow).

2014-Dec - Halfdan Coming to America Daily Drawing Challenge
In honor of +Halfdan Reschat's first visit to America I drew a series of silly cartoons every day before his arrival.

2013-Sep - Low Budget Scene Reenactment
A video of television and movie scene reenactments. All scenes were taken from suggestions made by G+ peeps! We did the scene reenactments with whatever we had on-hand, no budget, and first takes.Collaboration and fun with, and inspired by, the G+ community.

2013-Aug - Impromptu Rubber Banded Watermelon Hot Potato Roulette Challenge
Not really an "offical" Cramer Brothers challenge so I never really counted it as a win. However, after 490 rubber bands strapped around a watermelon and NOT having it explode in my lap, it did feel pretty good. ;-)
2012-Sep - 10 Minute Hero (or Villain) Call to Action
The idea was to take whatever you have laying about the house in 10 minutes and create a superhero costume, snap a pic, and post it. This was a great bunch of fun that quite a few G+ peeps participated in. More credit and info at the link.

2012-Apr - Star Wars Costume Contest
My second G+ based contest and my second loss. All contest-related links provided, but for a quicker read, check out the original contest post at the top, then skip down to the 04/14/12 punishment link at the bottom. For a really good look at the "should have won" C3PO costume, watch the video on the second to last link.
2012-Feb - Shared Circle Challenge
See me in all my "glory." On 2/25/12, I became the first to experience The Death of a Thousand Condiments after losing a Google+ contest with +Keith Cramer.

Shared Stuff on Google Docs can be found here:

I like to play around with PhotoShop and punking fellow plussers. I use the hash-tag #GplusUserMashup for these. There is also an album I try to keep updated in my photos.

I stayed in college as long as I could until life and student loans caught up with me. Went into the tech field for a large corporation. Moved from there to a small marketing firm. Moved on from there to self employment doing tech, web, and anything else of a legal nature to turn a buck. I currently remain self employed with my brother and another kindred soul, looking for the niche that not only keeps us interested, but pays for life and leisure, and allows us to never wear real pants.
