The last seven and a bit years of G+ have been hugely enjoyable. My stream is a constant source of delight and I'd very much like that enjoyment to continue after the impending death of G+. With that in mind, here are a few links to my presence on other social media networks. Feel free to find me, and I'll do the same. Also, please suggest any other networks that you might recommend. At least two people in my stream had the skills and drive to create and host two of the networks listed below (pluspora and youme).
My profile picture is (for now) the same on all networks. I took this profile photo on the Rome metro years ago. A man trapped between closing doors, it's definitely appropriate for G+ :-).

I had a recent and amusing exchange with Nicodin Bogdan, late of this parish, on the relative merits of umbrellas vs. hoodies. The umbrella wins on just about all metrics šŸ˜Ž

A hearty good morning to you all on G+. Spring is in the air on my small part of the world.

My heart going boom boom boom...
Heart by Fritz Kahn (1888-1968), known for his illustrations which pioneered infographics. I found an awesome animation of his 1926 Human Machine (Man as an Industrial Palace) on vimeo. Kahn was truly a genius, and many people have never heard of him. Here's a link to the animation https://vimeo.com/6505158

Apparently, the linguistic sounds of F and V are new. Who knew? Not me šŸ¤”. I've been using F for as long as I can recall šŸ˜‰

I don't know about wordless. I can hear music from this cat and it's got a swing :-)
Woodcut relief print by Frans Masereel (1889ā€“1972). Masereel is considered by many to be the creator of the wordless novel.

My guess is that almost any person older than about 3 years old would feel at least some flicker of recognition at the mood expressed in this etching.

When it comes to spending money on myself, I'm invariably tight. I've also been in a wild state of disbelief that in 2019 I still have to use ADSL to connect online. Thanks +Orange France , you really know how to treat a guy - top speed: 5Mbps, usual speed 2 Mbps. Recently, the LTE network has been up and down like the proverbial whore's undergarments whilst Orange plumb in some new bits of infrastructure. I also get a monthly LTE allowance in my package that I never use. Yesterday, quite by accident, I discovered that the top floor of my house now gets up to 50Mbps via LTE. That was hastily followed by the assembly of old laptop, old phone, all plumbed in to the public end of my network. And, hey presto, 5Mbps jumps to 44 Mbps. I may have to spend an extra 4 euros a month for slightly larger LTE allowance but for a 10x speed boost - and even as tight as I am - that will be money well spent.
