Bogan 21st

We celebrated one of my nephews’ 21st birthday this weekend with a Bogan themed party. I Was a cashed up Bogan with a hi-vis shirt and AC-DC singlet underneath. Suzanne was my pregnant wife complete with cripmed hair and a packet of fags under her neon yellow bra strap.

 

Kids, five years apart

These two shots were take five years apart on top of the whaling boat at Whale World in Albany. I didn’t realise that the first image was such low resolution. Five years later, my phone has 10x the resolution.

Embedding Google Plus posts

Google+ introduced a couple of new features on Monday, including a new tool that allows bloggers and content creators to embed public Google+ posts on other sites.

Users who wish to highlight a Google+ post within a news story or on a personal blog can do so by clicking the “Embed post” tab from the drop down menu in the post’s upper righthand corner. Users can then copy and paste the available line of code to embed the post, including text and photos.

This is great, since I spend most of my time now on Google+ rather than on Facebook or tending my mostly neglected blog. Hey, it’s paying it’s way so it’s been a bit of a set/forget thing. But now I can post once on Google and then drag it over here.
