I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life." I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

MemoryPins - My First Post Google Project, I wanted to share this with everyone now that the site is ready to be used.

You can check it out at:

URL: www.memorypins.org

Last April, my sister’s close friend Rachel was killed in a car accident - she was 25. It was shocking and devastating in equal measure. It struck me that there was very little that can be done or said under such circumstances to help rationalise or ease your own, or anyone else’s grief. 

Such a wasteful and tragic event has a wide reaching impact, especially when someone was as well regarded and well liked as Rachel. It became clear how many people she had touched, and how many friends she left behind, as the pictures, posts and comments poured onto the Facebook memorial page that had been set up in her memory.

The idea for MemoryPins came from this time - the project started in April last year, as a way of trying to take personal action after such a sad event.

The site is designed to give everyone a place to remember loved ones, and to make charity donations in their name to a cause that was close to their heart.

It allows you to create online pinboards, that can be contributed to by anyone, in the memory of that person, and to make charity donations to a cause in their name. 

MemoryPins was created with the intention of offering a long lasting, unique and meaningful memorial of those we have lost, that can be accessed and viewed from anywhere. Of course we hope to help lots of charities also.

I hope that the site goes some way to help people through these difficult times, and that over time we can continue to develop the existing project into a real support system. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the wonderful, and extremely patient development team at Active DD, especially Mariam Moustafa, Sherif Raslan and Nehad Hegazy, without whom I would never have launched this project.

MASSIVE HUGE FAT WIN FOR GOOGLE+!!!

So impressed with the new interface - especially the Photos!! I uploaded all of my camera photos to docs a while ago, thinking that one day I might o through them, now I can access all of my pics, from my phone, from Google Docs, from my uploads, all in one place!!

Thank you Google :) 

P.S. For anyone who's feeling skeptical, no I don't work at Google anymore, so this isn't for promotion, this is genuine delight!

Here is the Google+ Page for MemoryPins.org too, which will be updated regularly with grief support resources and information about the charities being supported on MemoryPins.
MemoryPins is an online space to remember loved ones that have passed away.

I do like a good bridge picture, this has got to be one of the best I've seen
 
Here's one I took about a month ago in Sydney, Australia. It's shot from underneath the Sydney Harbor Bridge, which was built in 1932. For a time, it was the world's widest long span bridge. And until 1967 it was Sydney's tallest structure. :-)
