Obviously we can't all just travel the world and hang out with other steemians whenever we want to, but what if we pretended... What if we could have a virtual hangout, where any steemian who desired to could have the opportunity to hang out with @papa-pepper, one on one, for a bit?
Honestly, I'd rather enjoy hanging out with just about any of you. I think that it would be interesting and that just hanging out would be a lot of fun. When I got the chance to hang out with @giftedgaia, @winstonwolfe, and @stellabelle for the Steemit Talk Podcast it was a very interesting and entertaining time.
Many in America are perhaps most familiar with the Sai because of Rafael from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I too grew up watching the TMNT team and, although my favorite Ninja Turtle was Michelangelo, you’ve got to admit, Rafael knew how to handle his weapons.
Since @papa-pepper is not a violent man, I have little use for weapons. If certain weapons like knives, guns, or Sai have other things that I can use them for though, you may find me carrying one. Many years ago I found out that a Sai makes for a very handy garden tool.
Because of how solid they are, Sai can take some abuse. Very often in gardening you must get seeds, cuttings, or rhizomes deep into the earth, and often the earth may not exactly be easy to work with. Most recently in my propagating efforts and when I received a bunch of Hops rhizomes from my brother, I ha
I loved speaking with this amazing dude. Of course, his work tells the story of his consciousness level, but it's great to hear, from a master, the simple principle that our free-will choices in each and every moment create our experiences.
Recently, @papa-pepper received a personal invitation from @lexikon082 to enter his STEEMIT BEARD COMPETITION. That was an offer that I could not refuse.
Since the logo above was the one created, I thought that I would have a go at recreating it. After all, despite the fact that @papa-pepper is a 36 year old man, he still cannot grow a “real beard.” Perhaps when I get older.
This was my attempt at recreating the steemit logo goate
@Papa-Pepper posted an invitation I had to try, so with help from family members I got to hang out with him tech style.

This post covers the first steps of creating my game in unity, namely setting up the unity project and creating the scene and background for the game. This follows on from part 1, where I set out the goals for the project.
To create the space background I made 3 large transparent images with white dots of different sizes for the stars. This gave me enough to layer them over a large area without obvious repetition of patterns.
To give the background a bit more character I downloaded some images from the Hubble site. Their copyright notice seems to allow usage of their images but I will confirm this before the game is actually released. The images I used are linked below.
With some help from a designer friend I made some minor colour corrections to the images in order for them to blend well with th
Along with other things, that means that Round 2 can now begin and we have a winner of 50 STEEM! With the rising price of STEEM, 50 STEEM is a pretty good amount... but who won it?
Once again, I had a great amount of clever, interesting, and strange photos to pick from, but, in the end I had to make my choice. I thought that this one would lend itself to some artwork for this round and then to some memes for the next round. We will see how you all do!
For Round 2, the winner will receive 25 STEEM, though I have been known to hand out additional bonuses as well!
Honestly, when I recently made a second post and called it “The Opportunistic Gardener” just like my Free Asparagus Seeds post from so many months ago, I really had no intention of actually making a series out of it. I just wanted to link a post from many months ago so that newer steemians could check out a great older post from @papa-pepper.
It seems, though, that my life is taking an opportunistic gardener turn for the better though, and new blessings continually present themselves to me to take advantage of.
When we moved to Arkansas, there was an orchard near

My favorite animal - and this was my first attempt of painting one.
Watercolors are still just trial and error for me, so much harder than copic markers. But it's fun, and I know I will get better in time. In retrospect, the painting may have looked better without the eyes, I can't really decide. Or maybe if I had added a nose as well. What do you guys think? I will probably redo a version of this motive in a couple of months ^_^
The painting is for sale, DM me an offer if you are interested :)
My wife, @silviabeneforti, and I have created a new Steemit account: @makersunited. The goal of this account is to develope the artists/makers/creatives community on Steemit and to bring new people in it.
It's a first step in promoting the creative content creators on Steemit. What will come next? Well, I hope a shop and a frontpage to help artists, writers, crafters to use the Steem constallation (that at the moment has just some very geek and tech stars) and to earn from it.
Creative contents will be needed more and more, in the future. Well, at least this is what everyone predict.
(Perhaps I should have posted this project as a idea proposal, according to the new protocol for pr
A friend showed me a cool picture he had taken, so I decided to fuck it up with some crazy digital edits. Links to the apps I used will be at the bottom. I did this all on my iPhone 7.
Hi fellow Steemians!
I already posted my three entries for this week's SPC. As so often it is hard to decide which photos get shortlisted.
So here are my surplus photos I did not post as entries for the challenge, but I still consider them worth sharing with you.
With love and gratitude, Natalia
After Penelope had taken a nap, she sat down with Georgie and the other woman, Hayden, in a cozy living room to be told
Now, Georgie began, settling on a sofa that faced Penelope and Hayden in their respective armchairs.
Have you read Beowulf? Penelope shook her head.
Do you know the story of the Odyssey?
Hayden broke in,
Georgie nodded at Hayden and continued.
Think about the creatures in stories like Harry Potter. Basilisks, dragons, hippogriffs. Where do you think those ideas came from?
Just people's imaginations I guess. But then Penelope thou

Came across this quote and I've loved it since! Also my current favourite poet.
I am amazed this photo was taken with an iPhone! Apple did well with the

More beautiful words, here!
Hey people, we had a show in Zagreb a month back. Someone from the crowd took the video and it's the first recorded instance of our song
Janko. It is actually an old folk song about nature, mountains and the grass growing. We just wrote a different set of lyrics. Now it's about Janko, a junkie shooting dope.
