This is the first I've heard of this. I hope we'll be able to hear of its progress.

I just bought a C720, and I like it. But can anyone tell if/how I can download Google Play Music Manger, and/or is there another way to upload music to my Google Play Music library? GP Music Help doesn't help; unless I don't know what to ask. Thanks,

You can't upload to Google Play Music from Android either.  I don't know why Google is taking too long to fix this.  Note that Google Play Music uploads from Linux but somehow forgets Android and ChromeOS.

Is this ("we took a firm line.") the Royal "We"? I'd bet it is. ~~ That was an exhausting outing, but you guys always manage to find the stars; but then, you seem to make lemonade from lemons. I wonder at your energy. ~~ Glad to hear that Martin acquiesced; his gain and enjoyment.

FYI
 
+Alex Flynn 's ongoing story is truly remarkable. Of course, not everyone would be able to respond to a PD diagnosis this way - he was already an active and highly trained athlete. Anyone wanting to read his inspiring full story can find it here in the Mirror newspaper of Jan 29th:

http://www.mirror.co.uk/lifestyle/health/alex-flynn-raced-6214-miles-3091167#ixzz2rtokgSrZ

I few excerpts from the article that impressed me:

“I hope I have proved that being diagnosed with a condition like Parkinson’s isn’t the end of your life.”

Alex set himself a mission to raise £1million for Parkinson’s research. His first challenge would be to run, cycle, climb and kayak 10 million metres – all in competitive races.

And he is still very much still at it:

Not content with his 10 million metre challenge, Alex now plans to row 2,100 nautical miles across the Pacific Ocean from Monterey Bay in California to Honolulu in Hawaii in June this year, setting three world records in the process.

To sponsor him and donate money for Parkinson’s research, go to:

Hat tip to +Greg Bufithis  for bringing this story to my attention.

What a great reflection; and so many elements. Sometimes it seems that those dark and dreary days are meant for recovery reflections; as the melancholy gives us pause for review.  And then, somehow, perhaps a raindrop, brings us to move our body and pump that refreshed oxygen to once again lighten our step; cut wood maybe. ~ My own consideration of DBS (or even medication) has me an adherent of MJF's view. But then, this condition seems to effect us so individually that the choice of direction can only be individual. ~ The limitation the PD causes does indeed bring us to new perspectives on what's necessary, what's important. And gray days are good for those reflections. ~ Thanks for sharing your opportunity.

I also want to add that in my support group I can't really say that any two have the same problem. So it does affect individually the symptoms and the only thing in common is the disease.

This is a good idea +Marc Cortese .  I'm going to take the liberty to share it to the Parkinson Cafe community, and hope that's ok.

Thank you +Paul D Lefebvre - I'm just getting started but I think I have a good idea about what level of complexity to target.

Phew! First, let me say again, Fiona, you do write a nice letter. You write kindly and clearly in your circumspect; all for whom you have lessons will appreciate that. And amongst your lessons, I am always glad for, is to be optimistic and committed. You are both indeed, and on many fronts.  ~~ My best to +Martin Purchase , and to both of you, a Happy Valentine's Day and Anniversary.

This morning was gray as the sky dumped another 4 t0 6 inches of fresh snow. When the sun began to shine at noon, that was time to move the snow. And now the temps are going down again, but at least there's no snow in the five-day forecast.

Yet another heavy snow day. As I anticipate clearing the snow later from my driveway between the garage and the street, I wonder if I'll be able to lift to the top and over the mounds that have already accumulated. Yesterday we went to a funeral as the weather here climbed out of the deep-freeze, and as we drove home in sunny temps of 24 degrees, I commented on what a nice day it was. Perspective! ~~ Well, anyway, since I like reading and being engaged with the computer, a snow day such as today gives me legit cover. And I know too that I'll get all the air-changing exercise I need with the shovels that stand at the ready outside  the backdoor.

It was good to hear you enjoy your Burns Night out Fiona. As I have not fathomed poetry, I only assumed you were referring to Robert Burns, and confirmed that with a Google/Wikipedia search (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burns_supper). Cheers. Life can indeed be good if we make it so. ~ Its clear that you are a close-knit family, and linked closely to a supportive community; no small credit to you. ~ Please give my regards to +Martin Purchase ; he's a good son to his father. ~~ Two of our children, a son and a daughter, (themselves both parents) have submitted themselves to the tattoo artists as well. Here's cheers to Catriona that she wears her's proudly. Till next time, ...
