Well, maybe

I sat out much of the last Doctor Who series, but may give it a whirl in August.

The official “Doctor Who” trailer is … promising | ***Dave Does the Blog
Sure, there’s plenty of razzle-dazzle, but the fundamental theme of the new Doctor — who am I, am I a good person, what kind of messes have I left behind me — sound like a great direction for the character.

There's still time to donate to the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure! Last day to donate is 08JUL (Tuesday).  Thank you…

I've raised 1052.00 and got over the hump on my goal of 1000.00USD, but still happy to raise more funds to help Stop Diabetes.

Here's my Chicagoland Tour de Cure page, which is linked off of the www.ridewithginny.com page.

If you're in the UK, please consider signing this Change.org petition, and write your MP.

The current income requirement for British citizens to bring their non-EU spouses to the UK is £18,600. According to the BBC, 'the Migration Observatory estimates 51% of working people in Wales do not earn enough to meet the new requirements.' Across the UK, that figure is 47%. Britons earning minimum wage should have the right to a family. (Read more at link)

Am I The Last Person To Discover Google+’s Enhanced Photos Feature? Now with MOAR LOLPeacocks

I was cleaning out mail from some of my Gmail.com accounts and realized that even deleting almost all of the unwanted mail still left 11G of stuff stored in there. At some point, I must have enabled the photo backup feature and WHOA. It had EVERYTHING on my iPhone, everything in Picasa.

If you take a lot of pictures of a Christmas tree from the same angle, you get an animated, twinkly Tannenbaum (with people dancing around it if they’re decorating). It’s actually kind of a pretty effect – Christmas Eve 2013, singing Silent Night with guitar accompaniment, you get the lit candles sparkling, too.

There’s some settings to figure out to stop the jittering, it’s much smoother “as is” if this were uploaded to a public album on Google Photos. This way, the angels on the Angel Tree look sorta fidgety.

If you take a lot of pictures of something, like the multiple head shots we took for the infamous 3D Head birthday gift prank, you get animated… heads.

And no, I’m not going there. But the Inadvertent LOLwhale albums from many years’ worth of whale-watching cruises were entertaining (I have a lot to work with there).

If you take a lot of pictures of an animal, like a peacock at a nature reserve on Oahu’s North Shore, you get this:

BEAUTIFULPEACOCK

I made it more bettah with lots of diva attitude.

So while playing around with that and laughing at the LOLwhales and whatnot, I figured out that the funny captions on animated GIFs have to be on each layer, not just on a transparency over the top, or you get this manic blinktag effect.

That’s all for now! I’m now the last person on the Internets who learned a stupidly easy way to make animated GIFs.

I need your help and encouragement – I signed up for the Chicagoland Tour de Cure…

I need your help and encouragement – I signed up for the Chicagoland Tour de Cure to raise funds to fight diabetes, and raise awareness too.

I'm riding 35 miles, and I'm behind in my training! I rode 17 miles last Saturday, and it really hurt. Will you challenge me to get on the bike? Will you help me get my butt in gear? I need to ride at least 25 miles comfortably this weekend to be able to finish the ride easily in June.

My husband +David Gibbs is the captain of Team Red Chicago, help me make him proud.

I'm going to raise my goal to $1000, already halfway there. Just need your support – any amount is great, any words of encouragement even better!
