Welcome to the 42 SF Challenge!  I've been searching out sources for SF content and posting little short articles to the blog at <a href="http://42sciencefictionchallenge.blogspot.com/">42sciencefictionchallenge.blogspot.com</a>.  I'd love for you to suggest any others that you come across.  That will help the participants sample a variety of SF.
Image copyright Paris Franz As any science-fiction fan will know, 42 is a significant number. I aim to take part in the 42 Science Fiction Challenge in 2015, in which I review 42 science-fiction related items - books, movies,...

Lisa's free printables are so much fun to incorporate into Christmas crafts and journal pages.

OK - If I'm going to make G+ work for me I need a couple of things. (They might even already exist, but If so, I don't know how to get to them.)

1 - I need to be able top post a status via a text message from my cell phone (SMS)
2 - It would be REALLY cool if my Twitter updates would relay to here so I wouldn't have to send the same update to two places.

And I must say that one of the best things about G+ is that there aren't any games which post updates and clutter up real communication. I hope that stays the same.

I'd really like to have a collapsed view of posts instead of seeing all the comments in line.

Suddenly this morning I'm seeing a collapsed view with "108" earlier comments. Yesterday I was seeing long stacks of individual comments.

Did anyone notice that the "SHARE" option on the Google toolbar for Firefox does NOT offer G+ as an option? I can share on Facebook or Twitter, Delicious, Blogger, Livejournal, or even via e-mail -- but G+ isn't listed as an option!

G+ integration is missing in a few things so it might take a while to permeate through to all the tools and sites where the established social sites already have strong presence.

I'm trying to come up with something devastingly witty or incredibly insightful to post. So far I got nothing.

Did you hear? Lots of freebies -- books as well as a couple of Kindle Fires. Starts on 1 February, but you can enter the drawing now.

So will North Dakota become the 50th state to join the Union?
North Dakotans will vote on whether the state needs to "clarify" its status after a local history buff discovered a flaw in its constitution that has created a state of confusion.

Seen on Facebook (I can't figure out how to forward it over there): Salary of the US President... $400,000. Salary of retired US Presidents... $180,000. Salary of House/Senate... $174,000. Salary of Speaker of house... $223,500.... Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders... $193,400.......... Average US Salary... $33,000 to $77,000. HELLO! I think we found where the cuts should be made! If you agree repost

Exactly why I asked you. It seems to be gaining more favor amongst my middle class friends. I haven't studied it but it just seemed too simple.

Just bought a Blackberry Torch - So far I've learned how to send a text message, make a phone call, check my e-mail, and check Facebook. This is an intimidating device!

I've not looked at the newer Blackberries -- I really disliked the feel of the touch screen on the Bold (so I have a Droid); But I played with the Blackberry tablet a couple of weeks ago. Even if you have a smart phone it takes a while to change from iPhone to Droid to BB -- all somewhat different.

OK, I know how to post a status, but how do I send a message to someone on G+?

There's a (tiny) "share" input field at the upper right of the black G+ navigation bar...
