Acquiring summer squash at the Christ Church farmer's market

Does anyone know what happened to ? It was a website that helped you find the accounts of people you follow on .

Was it intentionally shut down as a bad idea? Or is it down due to technical difficulties or neglect?

I'm currently considering the minimalist Freeform Universal RPG, since that is what my friend who inspired this idea is using.

This may look like a lovely community #garden, but don't be fooled: everything in this photo is actually just mosquitoes.

Can anyone suggest a good tabletop system for a realistic setting in the near future, e.g. 2030s USA? Bonus points if it de-emphasizes combat and has good support for conflict resolution.

If you have to choose one, which is better for the : buying , or buying (using reusable containers)? For some reason, many nuts etc. are frequently not available in organic forms in bulk bins, only in conventional forms.

Another impossible consumer choice that we could deal better with at a societal level.

If anyone has suggestions (besides Spotify) for sharing playlists containing songs I don't own, I'm all ears!

Are there any good for my non-technical who barely understand computers + the internet and will probably struggle to understand the fediverse? Something heavily moderated, ideally with some hand-holding for old people?

I mean, I could try to run a Mastodon server just for my family, but I'd rather not if I can avoid it.

Fountain pens may not be ideal for writing checks. I find that I don't press hard enough with my fountain pen to leave a mark on the carbon paper in my checkbook.

Checks are a significant percentage of my handwriting at the moment, so that's rather disappointing! Guess I'll just have to find more excuses to handwrite stuff. #meta, gab 

First, power went out on my street because a telephone pole caught on fire. Firefighters stood around for a while staring at the flaming pole, just like everyone else on the block. Eventually the fire went out, although I didn't see whether the firefighters had anything to do with that.

Then just as the power was restored, a tornado warning started blaring out from my phone, and the sky opened up.

Just another day in Philly.

Google, politics 

Extremely annoyed because I twisted my ankle today, which is forcing me to scrap all of my plans for the day.

I was in a hurry because I was running late, so I wasn't careful getting on my bicycle and fell over. This is a useful reminder that hurrying too much can be counterproductive!

One very bad thing about scientific papers being behind paywalls is that (competing) pseudoscience isn’t behind paywalls, so it’s easier to find misinformation online than to find facts.

What I really need is a whiteboard on a stick. I can't make a new sign for every protest, there are too many terrible things happening every day.
