Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2015 Live Stream (Official) SIX Appeal

Pin It


Samsung just announced its new Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, its 2015 flagship smartphones. The S6 and S6 Edge have a completely redesigned look and feel and have ditched the cheap plastic for premium metal and glass. They look and feel great, if a bit familiar. Check them out in the photos below and judge for yourself. - The Verge

Samsung Mobile Twitter feed is on fire.

It’s easy to see where Samsung took its inspiration for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge: the design is strikingly similar to the iPhone 6 in many places, and the features that Samsung did focus its efforts on are all things the iPhone has had for years. Look at the S6 from certain angles and you’d immediately think it’s an iPhone. Put your thumb on the home key and the phone unlocks almost instantly, just like an iPhone. Even the camera mount protrudes out from the rear of the phone, preventing the S6 from lying flat on a table, just like an iPhone 6. (The flat S6 looks like the lovechild of an iPhone 4 and an iPhone 6, while the S6 Edge is a little more distinctive.) Samsung has be known to copy Apple’s design before, which led to record sales and record-breaking lawsuits. It’s hard to say if the Galaxy S6 will bring about any lawsuits, but the similarities between it and the iPhone 6 are undeniable. - The Verge

Lemon Blueberry Whipped Cream Cake Gluten Free

I ask my Daughter. "What are your plans for today honey?" 
She replies. "Cake."

















It was a baking team effort.
We drew inspiration from this recipe.
To die for.
Seriously.

Farewell to Canadian Winter Wink Wink Nudge Nudge

Pin It

This is my friend Connie's farmhouse.
Isn't it so delightful!




I fell madly in love with this pastel blue barn.
Some farmer's wife with style decided upon this
I am sure.


Winter in Canada is so beautiful and fresh
but the danger side of this beauty is the beast.
#nofun



As my friend Darlene commented
"and not an iPhone in sight"
when she saw my photograph of
these Mennonite school children
skating in Ontario




The snowbanks are pretty f-ing tall.





I love weathered barn wood.
Gimme Gimme



Even though the hydro towers alter
the landscape
they still offer artistic beauty.

I'm over on Instagram having fun.
Wanna follow me?

Have a good day.
Stay warm Canada.
I still love you.

P.S.
I am working on a new
series of robust abstract
works on paper!
Stay tuned!

Wild Advice For Writers Starting Out From Cheryl Strayed

Pin It


This is an excerpt from the most incredible interview with Cheryl Strayed.

If you don't read The Great Discontent, I would recco you do. Stellar.

(Be sure to click here to read the entire interview.)

Here is Cheryl's answer to Tina's question:

"If you could give a piece of advice to a young writer starting out, what would you say?
Hmm…okay, well…
Just give it to us straight, Cheryl.
(laughing) Write like a motherfucker would have to be my first bit of advice. What that means to me is that—as I say in the column—you really, really have to be a warrior and a motherfucker. And you have to be resilient and faithful. You can’t be a wimp. You can’t stand around bitching about how hard it is and how indignant you are that no one appreciates your work, about how no one will publish you, or how people at parties make you feel stupid, about how you’re really not only a waitress or whatever job you’ve taken, about how your parents don’t understand you, or any of the stuff I bitched about plenty myself. I don’t say this from a place of condemnation, but rather allegiance. You really have to buck the fuck up, do the work, and know that you’re probably going to have to do more work than you imagined you’d have to do to get to the place that you imagined as successful. And when you get there, you’ll see that “successful” feels less successful than you thought it would. Success in writing is about keeping the faith over a long, long stretch of time. This isn’t something you just do a little bit and then get a reward at the end of—it’s a life’s work.
I believe in that voice I trusted all along the way. I believe in writing as a calling. If you truly feel that calling in you, then listen to it and respect it, but don’t expect that anything is going to be given to you—you have to get it. That’s true of any art form; any artist will tell you that."
