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.

No one asked but I thought I'd share how my reading went last night. Bader's Marx Bros on stage bio: densely detailed, Jerry Seinfeld collected a lot of early family photos.
Midnight at Bright Ideas... enh, bordering into chicklit.
I'll Sell You a Dog... snappy-funny and most engrossing of the three.
I have the latest Flavia de Luce mystery today and that's all I need/want, now that I've had my ice cream with homemade strawberry sauce.

I feel most domestic not when I'm scrubbing at stubborn stains and grime, but when I'm making bone stock. I love bone stock when it's cooled enough to develop a gelatinous texture. Noticeable difference from commercial processed products too, when used in sauces and gravies.

Now playing: Takashi Kokubo (ๅฐไน…ไฟ้š†) - The Day I Saw The Rainbow (่™นใ‚’่ฆ‹ใŸๆ—ฅ) ๏ฝž Elegant Harp ๏ฝž (1993) [Full Album]

i will be writing for @RhizomatixBlog over the coming while. this, entitled A Violently Typical Example of Hacking, is an exploratory piece meant to help me towards crafting an article defining hacking. it is not part of the publication, but may be of interest to some!

What is wrong with my son's generation is that they have no 21st century Frank Zappa to serve them genius musical political commentary.

Also, virtual hug to person who participated in my poll:

I just listened to Hiroshi Yoshimura Soundscape 1 surround (1986) and am eager to receive recommendations for uplifting yet unintrusive instrumentals.

We missed the live on account of maternity celebrations and commemorations, but I asked my boy for our own secret word and he came up with the word I suggested last week.

i don't benefit financially for sharing this with my fellow olds, who now are at the age to use the we learned of in the mid 1990s -- taking Alpha-GPC coincides with a spate of 'aha' moments in puzzle-solving.

Old person's simple pleasures: entering a supermarket for Mother's Day items and ten seconds later the favourite song ever plays through the store's speakers, one gets everything one came for and doesn't have to wait in line to check out... on a Saturday afternoon.

Also, we donated our cat paraphernalia: dishes, beds, scratching mat at a cat adoption compound. We toured the facilities open to adopters and visited the FIV ward and 'Leuky land' (Feline Leukemia). So long since we had youngish cats! At some point we will have cats again, but after 35 years, I'm up for a break.

I picked up three "The Shadow" paperbacks at $1 each in a small town's used bookstore. It was a small bookstore but had one of the largest inventories of " novels. I have all of them in electronic format but turning the pages while I read in bed is more satisfying.

My sister named her new kitten "Yuzu." Yes, I've had a yuzu drink, at an airport. I like it.
