The Mayor is having a fundraiser at the Swan Club, but he is running unopposed. My wife is going with two of her friends, she is making it a girls night out.
Twitter has added an Operators Lounge user account as a group for fellow workers that do what I do as an EVS operator to follow and tweet what ever is relevant in our industry and or simply to post pictures from fellow operators. Problems here lie in not a lot of operators know how to tweet with effectiveness, many don't care to, no less follow a group. Many use Facebook as a tweet zone. Facebooking timely to a current show they would be watching or responding to a breaking news event. This really is more of Twitter's share of the social media, to be timely with hashtags that people and groups to cull and observe. It is much more difficult to gather data from Facebook than to track data from twitter with the constraints of hashtags. The other issue I have with Operators Lounge is EVS in the Medical field is completely different than EVS in the entertainment field.
I follow Heidi Klum as a subscriber on Facebook, these are Photo's from what she would call a Blast from the Past. It's interesting to see where she is working and who she is meeting, she always seems to be very active. The comments she receives to her postings are sometimes in the 1000's sometimes they are merely 80 or so. It is fun to look up some of the words posted because obviously some of her followers speak several languages. The translate button in Blogger is wonderful to use when you stumble across a site that you find interesting from someones comment and you stalk away at who was that and they seem interesting.
One of the early discoveries I made with Google was if you type simply the word Define and any other word, you could get a dictionary response gathered for you. With Kindle if you highlighted a word in someones story that you didn't quite understand, the definition appeared at the bottom of the page, you could also gather this information permanently on your Kindle in the Notes and Highlights section. It keeps several Bookmarks as well like folding the corner of a page to go back and reread a section if you needed to.
I will be starting an 8 day project with CNBC and Food Network in a few days regarding small business.
The projects I am currently working on are a Fairy Tale concerning Honeybees, a Bear, a Wolf and the Wind.
I am also working on an adaptation for screen of a blind child singing prodigy that is kidnapped by the Circus who is rescued by a Hobo that she friend-ed while in the woods near her home.
The biggest project I am adapting is several books combined written by the same author and about the Author, whom was known as a prominent French Diplomat.
I have an oil painting that was begun I need to complete, and I have to clean the Garage, repair the roof when the weather gets warm. Welcome a French Student into our home for two weeks.
Hurricane Sandy was bad, but it prompted the idea for a second fairy tail concerning Gnomes.
We faired well concerning how many did not do so well, we had a generator for Day One, I bought it the Sunday before the storm hit and picked it up the Monday Morning at 7AM the day of the storm.
