So why does the onus most often seem to fall on the man to put the seat down? Why can the default position be up, and anyone that needs it down simply puts it down prior to sitting?

What would you bring?

Many of us have that 'go-to' dish that we tend to rely on when going to or hosting a dinner with friends and/or family. Others tend to try out new things, knowing that the people that care about us will forgive us if we serve up a dud every once in a while. What's your style?

If we were having a potluck dinner, what would bring? 

(inspired by a comment I made on one of +Jen R​'s posts)

I've got a few go to's depending on the group etc. Pumpkin soup, potato salad (contains bacon), this throw together Mexican chicken bake thing I do that has never had a recipe or exact method. And for desert Banoffee Pie.

Ohh and red wine. Always red wine.

Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

+Lady Deidre HurlsWaterballoonsLikeAPro the short answer is, no.

The longer answer is 'it depends'. When we create a collection, we have the option to have it 'opt in' or 'opt out'. The default is opt out meaning your followers will automatically see what you post to the collection and would need to specifically chose to unfollow its content.

Mom and I. Today.

I know that not everyone has the privilege of being able to spend this day with their mother. Circumstances, choices, and the finite nature of life do not always afford us that. So for as long as I'm able to, I intend to tell and show this wonderful woman that I love her. Especially on a day like today.

If you're a mother, either by genetics or by deed, I wish you a happy day.

I really shouldn't be allowed to social media in the morning ...

I made this comment on +Shaun McLane​​​'s Question of the Day post this morning, wherein he asked, "If you could tell G+ to shut the hell up about one thing forever, what would it be?". And since #caturday had already been taken, I kinda .... well ... lost it. I blame the lack of coffee. :-/

US politics!! This is a global platform and many of us outside your borders -- and yes, there are billions of us -- don't give a flying fuck about the axe to grind du jour you have with <insert name of the candidate you hate here>.

Quit deluding yourselves and shut the fuck up already with the polarized hatred of each other. Left or right, they (the politicians) don't give a shit about you and haven't for years; they're playing you against each other and have been for years. The majority of the rest of us think you've all lost your collective minds. Get your shit together or stfu!!

Post caffeine intake .... I apologize for the harshness of my remarks (though not the underlying sentiment). That said, I really hope my politically active US friends take advantage of the new Collections feature in G+ and post their memes and concerns and politicking to a collection that I can then 'unfollow' . I really do like seeing their other posts in my stream but the politics just drives me crazy.

This is a great resource to help get you started with Collections.

As an FYI ... if you are a regular participant in #caturday, I would seriously encourage you to share your cat posts to an applicable public collection that I can then unfollow. Consider it a gift to your cat loving, and cat not loving, followers.

This could be the greatest boost to #anticaturday ever!!

What Collections Are (Not)

Google+ now has a new feature, obviously, called Collections. But what are they and what can you do with them? This post is designed to give some inspiration and tips as to how to use Collections.

First off, collections are not the Google+ variation on Pinterest or Flipboard. More on what they are will adequately dispel the idea that these are any similar to Pinterest of Flipboard, so we can leave it at that.

Following

There are two sides to the collections feature, collecting and following. I'll deal with collecting last, as following is briefer. As far as following is concerned, collections will simply open up the door to more nuanced ways to follow/unfollow people. Initially, everyone now starts off following all the collections of everyone else. That's where we have been in the past. We already have:

- Follow everything from someone. 

- Follow nothing from someone. 

- View topic specific communities to get just that kind of content. 

Collections however give us a layer of nuance that is going to change much of how we interact on Google+, as individuals and as brands. What we get (follow wise) with collections:

- Follow everything from someone and get notifications from a specific collection. (Each collection has a notification setting, in case we want to get notified when that person shares into that specific collection. The notification only happens if new content is shared directly to the collection, and not if pre-existing posts are moved to a collection.)

- Follow everything from someone except what they put in a specific collection. (This is especially great if you enjoy most of a person's content, but don't want to see their selfy/cat/gif/food collection. Luckily for you, they put those things in a collection, just in case you wish to unfollow it.)

- Follow only a collection or two of someone, but don't follow them! (Let's say that person doesn't put their cat posts in a collection. But you really love that photography collection they have. Simply unfollow them from your circle but continue to follow that particular collection of their content. The long term result is, if you post mixed content, it pays to use collections for different topics. If you don't nuance how you post, people can't nuance how they follow.)

- The option then is to have notifications on or off for some of all of these collections, whether you follow the person/page or not.

Again, this is a nuanced kind of following.

Inspiration

But let's move on to collecting, because you'll likely want to make your own. Again, if you don't nuance how you share by using collections, people can't nuance how they follow you. With collections, you can build up multiple audiences, both for brand and profiles.

- Make an album of similar posts. Here is my Start Coding with JavaScript collection, in which you can find a couple posts dedicated to that page: https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/0hySX (by placing these in a specific collection, people can unfollow just this one while still follow me, or do the reverse and follow this one but not follow me or any of my other collections).

- Make a to-read list: make a private collection only visible to you. Share your favorite posts from others into it. Weeks later, when the posts are really far down your profile, you can access them quickly from the collections tab in your profile.

- Make a family album that only people in your family circle can see. Sharing into that collection means sharing only to them, and also gives them easy access to all other posts in that collection.

- Make a spammy post collection. Hang on to followers. As a convenience, post all your cat .gif, food posts and super-diamond-engagement circle share posts into a collection so that people don't unfollow you but instead unfollow just that group of posts. Please do so now. It is a convenience.

- Make a songlist by sharing your SoundCloud songs.

- Make collections to target audiences. Communities have categories for patrons to more easily navigatenavigate and interact on the basis of topics. We do this as well using hashtags. Now, pages and profiles themselves can allow for more topic based interaction.

- Make a collection of all your reshares to highlight others, easily accessible from the collection tab on your profile.

Ways of Viewing Collections

Think of collections this way. Labels are to Gmail emails what circles are to Google+ profiles. Each email and each profile can be in multiple labels or circles, respectively. We aren't talking multiple copies.

Collections, on the other hand, are to posts what albums are to images. Images on Google+ can't be in more than one album, and post can only (currently) be in one collection. To put something in a collection, it has to be a post. A collection is an album of posts.

Think of it as a personal hashtag. If you hashtag a post, clicking on that hashtag will take you to all posts by all people using that tag. However, collections are like a hashtag that, when you click on it, only takes you to that "tag" by that one person.

This allows you to aggregate, collect, organize, categorize your posts.

There are many many other ways to use the feature. It is a major change in how we interact.

Introduction
I am a son. I am a brother. I am a father. I am a friend.

I am the father of two strong and dynamic young women, just now emerging from childhood. Just over a decade ago, I decided to be a stay-at-home dad. They were 2 and 4 when I started, 4 and 6 when I finished, and it was the most fulfilling two years of my life.

Outside of a short stint in the southern US when I was 19, I've lived my entire life, born and raised, in Canada.

Want to know more? Go here.

If you want to follow me, thank you. Also, please know this ...
  • I share a mix of public and limited posts which represents selected snapshots into my life and the things I find interesting.
  • I'm not likely to spam your stream as I don't tend to post more than a few times a day, though there are times when I go on sabbatical and won't post for days on end.
  • I do not post NSFW content publicly, if at all.
  • If you comment inappropriately on my posts (judged solely at my discretion), I will not hesitate to call you on it or delete your comment without explanation.
If you want me to follow you, know this ...
  • I will take a look at your Profile and your Posts before deciding to do so.
  • I follow a fairly diverse group of people and pages spanning travel, technology, social media, general interest, and selected NSFW.
  • I will engage and comment on your posts when I find them interesting. When I do, it will be in a respectful and on-topic manner (though usually with a tendency toward sarcastic and off-beat humor). 
I will not follow you if you post ...
  • too frequently.
  • commercially motivated content.
  • mostly reshares of other people's content.
  • in a language that I do not understand.

Excellent spot for either a night out with friends, a wind-down after work, or a couple of pints with your team-mates after working up a sweat. Staff are friendly, though they tend to be very busy so park your impatience at the door and kick-back and enjoy the atmosphere and the din of the crowd. Lots of TVs to keep you entertained and a small patio when the days are hot and sunny.
