Photo: Greenville County Museum of art

Took a ride into town on Thursday and ended up at the County library. In the last 8 years, I may have only visited it twice. I renewed my card and paid a small fine. I also made a promise to myself to visit at least once a month it really is a wonderful resource.

While I was exploring the area around the Library I took a few photos, this one is of a sculpture adjacent to the Greenville County Museum of art is the best shot of the day so I thought I would share it here.

Hedy Lamarr’s 101st Birthday Google Doodle is great!

We stand on the shoulders of giants, Hedy Lamarr wouldn’t have come to my attention if it hadn’t been for today’s Google Doodle.

Hedy had a glamorous film career both in Europe and America that spanned  the late 1920s to the 1950s.

During WWII Hedy and composer George Antheil, developed spread spectrum and frequency hopping technology the principles of which are part of Wi-Fi, CDMA and Bluetooth technology! Read about Hedy at Wikipedia.

End to a great weekend

Another great weekend comes to an end I hope everyone got down to the Fall for Greenville event. I spent Friday volunteering, got to meet tons of great people. Steveo from JackAss ran by, no one was chasing him so I guess he was just in a rush. Handed out hundreds of maps.

After my shift I took a bunch of great photos of the event.

Fall for Greenville 2015 – you can still help :-)

Did you know that it takes more than 2000 Volunteer workers to make this weekend happen?! The more of us local citizens that pitch a few hours in means more $$ go to an awesome cause!

It’s not to late to volunteer walk up to the volunteer check in at the Greenville News Plaza, 305 S Main St, across from the Peace Center. Fill in the waiver then grab a t-shirt and be a wonderful Greenville local ;-).

New design: BeforeSite.com

Just pushed up a new look for the BeforeSite WordPress plugin e-commerce website.

If you’re not familiar with BeforeSite, this is where I sell plugins that integrate and extend my free Easy Sign Up plugin.

The Easy Sign Up plugin just passed 100 000 downloads and to celebrate I am offering a 15% discount on all the extra’s at BeforeSite.com use coupon 100K!

Fell free to tell me what you think about the design in the comments, for more information on what I used to create the website have a look at the portfolio page.

Cheers!

Sunday fun: WPBnB Logo

Working on a new project called wpBnB, eventually this will be a website resource for folks who run a Bed and Breakfast.

The main focus of the website will be around using WordPress for the BnB’s website, but there will be a lot of good articles and tips to giving value to anyone in the Bed and Breakfast industry.

Well, that’s the idea!

For the logo, I started thinking about the humble pineapple. A symbol of welcome and hospitality.

During early Colonial days in the United States, families would set a fresh pineapple… This symbolized the utmost in welcome and hospitality to the visitor.

Symbolism of the Pineapple

The more I worked the logo the more it looked like the classic Lucky Strike logo.
