+Google Translate's feeble attempt to translate the SMS that came in when we put the Vodafone Greece SIM card in Janice's phone. That doesn't fill me with confidence that GT will be of any use on this trip. #itsgreektome

Paid at +CVS/pharmacy on Lincoln Ave. in Willow Glen last night using +Google Wallet. Amazingly: (1) it worked on first try without a hitch, (2) the cashier took no notice of it. #SignsOfTheApocalypse

Thanks to Daniel Treadwell’s plugin I’m finally able to import my Google+ posts from the past 2+ years. It’s not perfect: some posts are missing and I’m working out the bugs.
