Good Ol' American +H.I.R.L. Fun Starring +Halfdan Reschat and many other Plussers...

+Scott Cramer +Keith Cramer +Kyla Myers +Sandy B and many udders!

Two Weeks Summer Vacation in the US
Yesterday afternoon I arrived home after spending two amazing weeks in the US, hanging out with several friends who I all have gotten to know through Google+. Since Google+ was so kind as to create a Google+ Story of my trip, I am sharing a modified version of that instead of making a normal photo album like I did for my December trip: 

First, I want to say thank you to +Scott Cramer, +Keith Cramer, +Lori Cramer, +Kyla Myers, and +Capin Chris for having me. Your hospitality and company was greatly appreciated - and you made sure I had an amazing time.

Next, I also want to say thank you to the rest of the bunch I got to hang out with (or meet) during my trip:
+Sandy B, +Kimberly Chapman (+kids), +Brittany Samples, +Charles Samples, +Maddie Cramer, +Charlie Cramer, +Kristi Fahlsing, +Christy Pemberton (+monsters), +Christie Stephens (+kid), +Thomas Stephens, +Jayme Hancock, +Tiffao 티파니, +Blaine Hall, +Sean Cowen, +Andrea Rocha, +Glenn Meisner, +Deb Meisner, +Jessica Stamets, +Luke Stamets, and several other people who I am not sure are on Google+.

Thank you all.

Lastly: Miley Cyrus - Party In The U.S.A.

Are you READY for some football Google+ers? GET YOUR GRILL ON!

It's Sunday and just after kickoff on the +NFL's Week 11 which might mean beer, chips and some other excellent +foodporn picture opportunities while watching your team toss the pigskin
<#bacon anyone?>  down the field!

"Hey, did I hear +mention of some FOOD?!"

People have used G+ to hangout and eventually meet (or +H.I.R.L.)
in many cities from #nychirl   #sxswhirl   #dchirl  all the way to #denverhirl !

Chef +Larry Fournillier (Hosts Cooking Shows using Hangouts such as Kids In The Kitchen S01E02 - Organic Pancakes) flew in from his home in Trinidad to share his culinary secrets with other G+ers including :

 +Thai One On with Stacy's +Stacy Frazer & +Lucius Nite

PA's +Be Chego  plus a bunch more with some joining via Live Video AND even a few sponsors supplying food and drink!     

This event took place while people were tailgating nearby waiting on the 1st game of the season between +Denver Broncos and +Baltimore Ravens!

Watch your fellow G+ Community enjoy the smells of AWESOME! 
We have a feeling there's a lot more good stuff to come, we can
almost taste it!
