It’s far easier to continue believing lies than accept that you’ve been lied to & are still being lied to. Irrational fear & cognitive dissonance are powerful forces. But courage & love conquer all. Step back, pause, open your heart & mind: think critically. Humanity will prevail. -- Dr. Kulvinder Kaur

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.

Last week I saw a bright distant celestial body in the east of the night sky. I wonder if it was Jupiter

Another breakthrough: taught the child how to prepare for Mother, the pourover way. He intuited the best mug to use, a proud moment.

I expect to lose a lot of money at home soon. "wow, a quarter fell out of the dryer."
"If it has my name on it, it's mine!"
"Oh alright, Charles."

the US Presidents all face left on metal coins, except for Lincoln on the penny and some recent mintings of Jefferson nickels
The British Commonwealth profile alternates with each monarch. Queen Elizabeth faces right, " Georgius VI" as is printed on my Shilling faces left. "CAROLUS III" (Charles III in my nation) will face left too. My $2 coins will be " Charlie Two-nas"

If GST monies go toward fruit snacks at MP offices, then yes, I did. I paid no income taxes because I earned no income.

I never knew a visit to the Member of Parliament's office could be so fun, productive, and fruitful. Literally. We were exhorted to help ourselves to fruit snacks.

My dream from the day before prompted me to check my account. $0.26 USD. Whoop whoop off to Vegas

Dreamed I had to report two deaths on two consecutive days. The second time the dispatcher was bored, with long silences, as if I were pranking him. I worried that he might suspect me of causing the deaths. Decedents were in early 50s, and laid out on the floor, from nonviolent and bloodless causes.
Non sequitur in dream: drove past a large tree-shaped brown sign promoting ' YARN CÌTY' on top, and below in smaller print: 'No evergreens in Arizona!'

I just found out about

Publishing blog content with scp and ssh. I love the simplicity of it!

I know I am a lonely widow because I solve 70% of the tech problems here. That cliche of teens helping the fuddyduddy luddite parent who happens to be female? NOT APPLICABLE

This is likely anathema for the majority of readers, but have you ceased use of a tech device, e.g. an entertainment streaming or recording device, because it took too much of your time and energy?

_The Way of Qigong_ by Kenneth S. Cohen. Trying some postures a d exercises I learn I do not stand properly,cannot balance, and if my attention lasts for more than three minutes it is a proud moment. All this time on the planet and now unlearning poor habits.

I wrote three letters today, bring my total to six for the week. I accomplish more now that I am taking an administrative break from what seems like nonstop geocaching this summer.
I even shopped in a supermarket yesterday. Sure is great to smile and be smiled at, especially when one has been holed up for two years.

The pleasure of making stock 

I love the gelatinous texture of cooled bone stock. It signals that glycine and collagen goodness have been leeched successfully from the bones and my soups and sauces will taste superb.
