How do I block people from adding events to my google calendar?

Thanks, appreciate the help.  I did try that, it works on my primary calendar but for some reason the proposed meeting came through on a shared calendar. Will try to adjust it again.

I haven't done any new paintings for awhile now, working on clearing out my studio and my head to make room for creativity. In the meantime, just added a bunch of older small original paintings to my Etsy store http://www.etsy.com/shop/Feltypants

I just helped fund projects in 4 different countries through http://www.kiva.org/. Microfinance is a great way to reach out and improve lives around the world.
Make a loan to an entrepreneur across the globe for as little as $25. Kiva is the world's first online lending platform connecting online lenders to entrepreneurs across the globe.

+Jon Evans I admire what Kiva does but hadn't managed to pledge before, I'm rooting for my borrowers and hope the loans help their quality of life.

Just watched Steal This Movie, about Abbie and Anita Hoffman. Seemed appropriate in this time of renewed activism (and inspiring).

Last weekend we went to Lodi and saw the Sandhill cranes, quite a magnificent sight. They're about 5 feet tall and have the most graceful takeoff, and they honk noisily as they prepare to land. It's also an interesting collaborative management project, the farmers flood their fields to make roosting sites for the cranes who winter here from Oregon. Googling for an image to attach here, I found the following article about visiting the area (use zip 95050 if the popup appears).

I'd been trying to see them for years, but we kept going to a spot near the central valley that they no longer visit (not enough water) It was thrilling to finally see them.

I've taken it upon myself to come up with more user-friendly branding for the Occupy movements. I suggest they rebrand as the Parity Party. Rolls right off the tongue, eh?

Parity Now!

Dear web content, social media, e-commerce and other fledgling e-companies, and Amazon:

If I value your service, I prefer to pay a subscription fee than be served up advertising in any form, including email. My most precious commodity is my time and I'll go to great lengths to protect it. If I don't value you service, I simply won't use it. And I'm not alone.

Same thing applies to lousy UI design, I'd rather pay for a more efficient experience than navigate around what you think I ought to see.

Love,

Lisa
