I've got a question... got my notice for the 9.5 update but when I run the updater it says it requires 9.0 Premium or greater to run. I've checked my current install which is 9.0.2 Premium, anyone have a solution to this problem?

Sorry about that -- we got out of sync with the updater (and ran into a little bit of trouble). Hopefully everyone is all set and updated.

Dear Tiger,
  Take the rest of the year off and call Butch or Hank when you're feeling better. The Foley swing will be the end of your career in the long run, I think.

A DEA Agent stopped at a ranch in Texas and talked to an old rancher. He told the rancher, "I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs." The rancher said, "okay, but don't go into that field over there...", as he pointed out the location. The DEA Agent verbally exploded and said, "look mister, I have the authority of the federal government with me!" Reaching into his rear back pocket, the arrogant officer removed his badge and proudly displayed it to the rancher. "See this badge?! This badge means I can go wherever I want... On any land! No questions asked, no answers given! Do you understand old man?!"

The rancher kindly nodded, apologized, and went about his chores. Moments later the rancher heard loud screams, he looked up and saw the DEA agent running for his life, being chased by the ranchers big Santa Gertrudis Bull...... With every step the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it was likely that he'd sure enough get gored before he reached safety. The officer was clearly terrified. The old rancher threw down his tools, ran as fast as he could to the fence, and yelled at the top of his lungs......


This story made us laugh. SHARE it with your friends if it made you laugh as well!

Along The Meguro River || Tokyo 

I’m excited to say that +Naomi Locardi and I have just arrived in Kyoto Japan to kick off five weeks of chasing the blooming cherry blossoms. :)

This will be our second Sakura season and I’m 100% confident that it will be far from the last. With every visit we seem to fall deeper in love with the wonderful Japanese culture, the fascinating cities, and the gorgeous countryside. I’m really looking forward to being back! 

Last year—on my short visit to Tokyo—I was fortunate to get the chance to spend a few hours wandering along the Meguro river, crossing all the little bridges, and searching for an area to set up my camera. With so many beautiful spots, it wasn't easy to choose but I eventually settled on the one you see here. 

As I stood there, the wind kicked up, producing strong gusts that caused thousands of cherry blossom petals to rain down all around me. Consequently, the wind also made photography more difficult with the fading light. Let’s just say that it was a frustratingly beautiful problem to have. ;)

Great letter

Alan Simpson, the Senator from Wyoming calls senior citizens the Greediest Generation as he compared "Social Security " to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats.
Here's a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS in Montana .... I think she is a little ticked off! She also tells it like it is!
"Hey Alan, let's get a few things straight!!!
1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole (tit) for FIFTY YEARS.

2. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 years old. I am now 63).

3. My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of zero losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would make Bernie Madoff proud.
4. Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and "your ilk" pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age, 67. NOW, you and your "shill commission" are proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN.

5. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from Day One, and now "you morons" propose to change the rules of the game. Why? Because "you idiots" mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to steal our money from Medicare to pay the bills.

6. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again. Why? Because you "incompetent bastards" spent our money so profligately that you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off YOUR debt.
To add insult to injury, you label us "greedy" for calling "bullshit" to your incompetence.
Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions for YOU:

1. How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?

2. At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career,
and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?

3. How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?

4. What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare benefits are you proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal,
or as usual, have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?
It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called Congress who are the "greedy" ones.
It is you and your fellow nutcase thieves who have bankrupted America
and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers.

And for what? Votes and your job and retirement security at our expense, you lunk-headed, leech.
That's right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your pathetic, political careers.
You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.

And you can take that to the bank, you miserable son of a bitch.
P.S. And stop calling Social Security benefits "entitlements". WHAT AN INSULT!!!! 
I have been paying in to the SS system for 48 years.
“It's my money”-give it back to me the way the system was designed
and stop patting yourself on the back like you are being generous by doling out these monthly checks” ..

EVERYONE!! If you agree with what a Montana citizen, Patty Myers says, please PASS IT ON!!!!

Dear Google+
   Why has this started defaulting to the 2 column layout every time I refresh my browser. I want single pane view and it aggravates the hell out of me to have to spend the time to get back the way I want it. Really I appreciate your trying to improve the service but you're going about it the wrong way.

Question, I've been trying to revive a laptop my wife uses. Tried 12.04 and up but I get a screen saying recursive failure needs reboot on every version. Anyone got suggestions on what the problem might be? Thanks for your help.

My response to a Democrat survey I received recently....

I would advise anyone against supporting the Democrat party at this time. The party has evolved into an arm of the Communist party since I registered as a Democrat in 1972. The leadership is committed to creating dependence on federal programs and controlling the populace at every level. I believe in small government at the federal level, reduced spending, fiscal responsibility and personal responsibility. If we continue sending Democrats to Congress and the White House, the future of this country is bleak at best, non existent at worst.Economic chaos is rapidly approaching and the Democrat party's response is to continue spending like no day of reckoning exists.Having said that I have no more faith in the Republicans at the moment. I appears that I'm a man without a party!

When we limit the actions that our Federal government is allowed to do, limit congress from passing any law that does not include every single citizen from being under the law.  Get back to States rights and realize that not everything must be equal, which it isn't anyway, regardless of all the laws passed.  Then perhaps we may have a chance of recovery.
