8-3-2014: It's been about 4 months since I updated my home page. I have been focusing on doing astrology and social network marketing for the San Francisco Astrological Society. I think the last thing I did was to convert the SFAS website from html to WordPress. That was a new thing to do and I'm rather proud of it. It's been tweaked some by the new web master since April.

Now that Jupiter has gone into Leo and the worse of the Grand Cardinal Cross is about over (Spring of 2015 is the last gasp of it) I feel motivated to work with polymer clay, sew a bit, and blog a bit.

First things first, update my home page and what better way than to share the interview with Christopher Renstrom, the photo of the wonderful dinner that Esther Lau hosted for Christopher Renstrom and some of the astrologer volunteers from SFAS and NCGR-SF, and the new animated gif for the "Metaphysical Detective Agency" by Kristen Weiss. You have just got to read her books. She's a local writer and we should support our local artists.

8-2-2014: Esther Lau's dinner in honor of Christopher Renstrom who writes the daily horoscopes for the San Francisco Chronicle and SFGate.com: here's the panoramic view of 10 out of the 12 "astrological disciples" while Steve Pincus and Mary Gow handle the cam.

From L-R: Ian Waisler (President of the San Francisco Astrological Society/SFAS), Joe Kaminsky (VP of the National Council for Geocosmic Research/NCGR San Francisco Bay Area Chapter), Barry Perlman (Astrobarry), guest of honor Christopher Renstrom visiting from Salt Lake City, Utah to deliver lectures here in the Bay Area, which he just did this Saturday for NCGR San Francisco Bay Area Chapter  and earlier in the week for SFAS), our generous hostess Ms. Esther Lau of Empress Investments International LLC, Linea Van Vorn (Linea Astrologer) and her husband Allan, Blesilda (Recording Secretary, NCGR-SF), Aude Guerin (Executive Secretary, NCGR-SF), and Ms. Nora Jean Stone (Publicity Director, SFAS). Manning the camera were Steve Pincus and Mary Gow (President and Publicity Director, respectively, of NCGR-SF).

How to access GOOGLE HANGOUTS

Posted as a note on my Facebook wall

What one needs:

Gmail account

Sign up for Google+

Download the app. Works on all devices. You download "Hangouts" from Google Play, iTunes App Store, or for your computer from the link below.

http://www.google.com/hangouts/

It is free.

You don't need a webcam. One can invite someone to a Google Hangout by typing in the person's phone number. The call is free within the United States. So no, you do not need a webcam to be part of a Google Hangout. In order to participate in a Google Hangout one does need to jump through the Google Hoops: Gmail, Google+, download the app. 

I'm going to rope in some friends to test out Google Hangout. I already use Chrome, have gmail accounts (for two YouTube channels) so all I had to do was download the app, easy enough to do. 

10 people can be in one call.

You can create a "circle" in Google+ just family, friends who share similar hobbies like polymer clay or astrology, business or pleasure. 

Unfortunately Google Hangouts cannot be schedule ahead of time. Someone needs to start a hangout and then invite people to the hangout, that can be done via Google+ circle, a phone number, or email address, if you've filled out the "about" page with Google+. I'd use the personal email address or phone numbers and not share the url through a Yahoo Group because there has been delays with posts showing up in Yahoo Groups. 

Recording the Google Hangout is in conjunction with YouTube and public live streaming. Not something you want for a business meeting. But what if you wanted to record the business meeting to be shared privately? 

Here is an article about audio recording of the Google Hangout with a third party programs. 

http://www.lockergnome.com/media/2012/01/20/record-google-hangout/

Here are some current YouTube tutorials for Google Hangouts.

The search string was "Google Hangout Tutorials 2013"

I found them helpful.

Nadya Melton, covers a lot of information and even though her accent makes you think "Jersey Shores" she's really from Russia via Indiana. She shows us around Google Hangouts and how to live broadcast and embed a live broadcast in a blog post. Something that some of you might want to experiment with for your personal professional practice. Just a thought there.
