CapeCod Beer (Factory Tour)

8 05 2016

It’s really is about the Beer!”

We had the opportunity to visit CapeCod and stopped into the CapeCod Beer Brewery.

CapeCod Beer is about Beer. Its about brewing the best beer possible, on CapeCod, for people who love CapeCod. Its about having fun, and following Todd’s calling (and passion) to brew beer professionally. Its about sharing that experience with those we meet along the way that feel the same way about beer as we do.





Cape Cod Chips (Factory Tour)

8 05 2016

We had the opportunity to visit Cape Cod and take the Cape Cod Potato Chip Factory Tour. It was very interesting.

Cape Cod Potato Chips began as the dream of two small business owners. They imagined a small operation where they could produce and sell the potato chips they had cooked in their kitchen for years. On July 4, 1980 that dream became a reality when they set up shop in a small store front in Hyannis. The big crunch of the kettle cooked chips soon became a local favorite. News of the chips quickly spread as tourist sampled the chips and took bags home to share. The business soon grew out of the store-front and a worldwide love affair with our natural snacks began.

If your in the Cape Cod area stop by and take the tour.

Boston Marathon Snapchat (re-purposed)

8 05 2016

This was recorded on my Snapchat account and re-purposed so that it would live on…

Today we into Boston to watch the Boston Marathon. We had a great spot as the runners approached the final turn onto Boylston Street and head to the finish line.
The weather was sunny with temperature in the 60 deg. F range.
Spectators were 4 to 5 deep on the sidewalks in some areas.
To pull off an event like Boston does it takes a lot of planning and a great team. Nice job Boston!
Today’s marathon was the 120th running and 50 years for the women.
The spectators go very loud as the first wheel chair athletes rounded to corner and the volume of chairs continued to grow as the runner approached.
We saw some great support of encouragement from some runners as others were having a difficult time. There was what looked like a team of 3 men (or 3 friends) that must have run the first 26 miles together. As they approached the final 0.2 tenths of a mile and before the turned that famous corner to the finish. They all shook hands and pats on the back, and then one of these men turned up the heat as he found his final kick to the finish. Must have been good friend. There were many acts of kindness along the 26.2 miles. I’m sure of it. Great work by all of the runners today at every level. As well as to the Boston Marathon teams of volunteer that helped to make this a successful event. I am very proud to say I’m from Boston.

Meet My New Friend Karolien Soete, Artist…

8 05 2016

From around the world I meet karolien soete today who supersized me beyond belief…

Meet my new friend karolien soete from Belgium who I meet today in a Blab live interactive video space. We started talking and sharing things we enjoy and what we do. Come to find out the Karolien is an artist. Some of my favorite people. I love the creativity and joy she brings with her everywhere she goes.

My dad was an artist and my youngest son is doing some amazing things with art and technology as a Snapchat artist and story teller. So you know my interest runs deep.

Back to Karolien, “From an early age, when still in grammar school, she knew that she wanted to be an artist,” Karolien works today as an artist and I would encourage you all to follow her Karolien and her work (see links below). From The Talking Walls Project (A life-size animation) painted directly on a wall of the company or the location is key for verbal contribution of the employees or citizens and is essential to its creation… You can learn more here:http://ksoete.com/about-2.html

Karolien is a BizzBuzz award winner 2014 and has many other credits to her amazing career.

After our very interesting conversation this morning I received this note from Karolien. It reads; Hey Bruce, I made a quick life sketch of you just now. You can share if you like, I made it with pleasure, enjoyed our talk a lot!

I have always said I have some of the greatest friends in the world and Karolien Soete in no exception. She is indeed my newest best friend.

Thank you very much Karolien for such a great supersize. You are AMAZING!!!

Below are links to her social presents and information about Karolien and her art.

Blab Now Has Screen Share

8 05 2016

Here’s two screenshots from my Blab screen share beta-test adventure with Barb Tomlin this afternoon. We recorded a Blab as a test to see if the screen share is recorded. If this is possible Blab becomes a game changer.

In figure 1 example above I did a screen share into a wide screen window.

In figure 2 example above I did a screen share into a quad window. Barb, who I made a co-host also did a screen share into a second quad window. This quad sharing also works if your co-host is not in the video window but is in the live chat as a co-host.

The sharing and presentation possibilities are now endless. This new feature opens all kinds of new and exciting ideas!

Here’s how it works:

When you are the host you will see a guest seat link like this one in figure #3.

Figure #3 Guest seat with drop in’s and screen sharing

This is the window where the following is possible:

A.) A guest can join your Blab.

B.) You can drop in an on line link to a YouTube video for example.

C.) You can click the purple button to screen share.

NOTE: The first time you click this button Blab will help walk you through the process of adding the Chrome extension that allows the screen share to function. This all happens with just a few clicks. Supper easy…

Once this is done you will see a Blab Sharing Screen like the Figure 4 below.

 
Figure #4 — Select the screen you wan to share

Click on the screen you want to share and that’s it!

This gives you as the host, full control of the screen share. For example, you can start and stop a YouTube video for talking points or change what is on the screen like photos in your on line photo album as you click through them.

You should also know that this is a screen share. not an audio share and the audio is not shared. It is up to you or your guest to to provide the commentary for the screen share presentation. Also, when you screen share, it screen share’s in a wide screen format.

Advance tip: To share in a small box, or quad box, click and hold the purple button. After that, the process is the same.

Have fun and be creative!!!

I hope this post and testing we did helps you get started.
