Let's play a game, to help some of the newcomers make connections: name subjects and topics that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same.

Every couple of months I like to share with new people or people on new instances how to add timelines into feeds:

Roll your own: https://[federated.instance]/@[userid].atom

Could be worth trying if your favourite accounts are 8-16hrs away, or if you detect spotty synchronization issues between instances.

IRS: dead hilarity 

hahaha dig this, USans!

USPS Informed Delivery email says the IRS sent a letter to my dead husband to the mailbox we have in the US. Our mail isn't being kept by the post office because there's no place for it, the US govt rules 30 min walking in open air is riskier than 5 hrs in passenger jet so even though I'm vaccinated I can't pick it up.
I called the IRS to see what I could do and I was directed to a VMB w/msg stating extremely high volume of calls, try again later.

It looks like RSVPs are requisite for listening, but as I know music lovers are on my instance and followers list:

Today at 7pm EDT, or 23h00 UTC, hosts the singular live recording (Seattle) of John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme", the event will be on YouTube

WBGO's Nate Chinen will be joined by saxophonist Branford Marsalis and harpist Brandee Younger in a live conversation about this recently unearthed live recording.


To where shall i retire tonight?

I ❀️ that several of my penfriends and online friends read classic horror and weird fiction this time of year. I spotted Algernon Blackwood, Marjorie Bowen, Aleister Crowley. I'm sampling three anthologies (Ray Bradbury tribute, Weird Fiction, and Haunted Nights about Oct 31). Way to get into the...
...of things

is it my lack of awareness of useful and simple scripts and applications, or is it the truth that for scheduling tasks with multiple occurrences per day, a physical planner is best?

I thought we sent the husband off a year ago. The reality that I am looking online for soul cakes recipes from his centuries-gone ancestral area, and listening to "Fool's Paradise - Brett Somers Memorial Playlist" archived stream from demonstrates he still haunts our living room

Seelenwoche: October 30th-November 8th
Bavaria and other Catholic areas in Germany, and in Austria

the recipe for homemade β€žSoulbreadβ€œ/Buns.
From the Middle Ages to the 19th Century, the Soulbreads traditionally were baked for the poor only at All Souls Day, 2 Nov. The so-called β€žSoul Breadsβ€œ were then given to children in the Freiburg area. They received the β€žSoul Breadsβ€œ from their godfathers. The custom has fallen into oblivion in the meantime, you can get the souls almost all year round.

I'm streaming some weird videos I found on the Microsoft Zune media player I got for free a few years back.

death notice 

Russ Kick, author and activist researcher, died at age 52

Russ was on my list of seven living famous people I'd invite to dinner.

Skeptical by nature and mistrustful of authority, he also produced guides and books that punctured myths: β€œ50 Things You’re Not Supposed to Know” (2003) and β€œYou Are Being Lied To” (2001), updated in 2009 as β€œYou Are Still Being Lied To.”

What's the weirdest thing you've heard someone sleeptalk?
This morning I was awakened by "Make your phone shut up" from my son. My phone was dormant and thus silent all night

A good thing about the last twelve months, my insurance premium, in addition to several refunds received, is down to $1350 CAD. Last year it was $1832, year before $3000 (US spouse driver, 30 years driving experience)

Made my first dinner for two this millennium
an organic Pollo Oreganata con Limone, with super easy Salata Pomodoro and mashed spuds. Son brought Dairy Queen Banana Splits home.

Spanish version of "The Monster Mash" - Los Straitjackets - "Que Monstruos Son"

oh golly my bestie in the Atlantic remembered my husband died a year ago and offered to watch a film "with" me. Her film connoisseurship and history knowledge surpass mine so I am scrambling!
