so, I guess I am going to toss my name into the ring here. Not having a vehicle is no longer feasible for the care of myself and my disabled girlfriend. Trying to get a van, but at this point, anything will do. Thank you all!

Just a regular reminder that "punishable by fine" means "legal for rich people."

"Orkney was once utterly dependent on power that was produced by burning coal and gas on the Scottish mainland and then transmitted through an undersea cable. Today the islands are so festooned with wind turbines, they cannot find enough uses for the emission-free power they create on their own.

Community-owned wind turbines generate power for local villages; islanders drive nonpolluting cars that run on electricity; devices that can turn the energy of the waves and the tides into electricity are being tested in the islands’ waters and seabed; and – in the near future – car and passenger ferries here will be fuelled not by diesel but by hydrogen, created from water that has been electrolysed using power from Orkney’s wind, wave and tide generators."

Not having spoons to communicate, network, plan, share, and navigate on a generalized regular basis?
That's fine, and says nothing about you as a person.

dry shampoo! especially good for the spoonies and depressed folks (like me)

mix together baking soda and cornstarch (idk, like probably 50/50). take an old make up brush and put it on your hair and brush out.

you can also add in some cocoa powder to make it a little less glaring white

super easy - coconut oil chocolate!

basically, using a ratio of 1:1:0.5 for coconut oil, cocoa, and honey / maple syrup you can make tasty chocolate! you can also add more honey / syrup if you like it really sweet, but w that ratio its pretty much ideal for me!

its fun if you have fancy ice cube trays to put them in those to have different shapes, but if you don't you can just put it in any small pan and just cut it up after to whatever size you like!

- 2/3 cup coconut oil
- 2/3 cup cocoa
- 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
- lil splash of vanilla
- pinch of salt

heat up the oil until it's fully melted and then stir in the rest of the ingredients until it's all fully incorporated.

i usually do the honey / syrup last because if it has too much time it'll settle to the bottom.

then, pour it a) into your ice cube trays b) onto a parchment lined baking sheet or c) into some muffin liners on a baking sheet and put it in your freezer to cool! keep 'em thin and it shouldnt be long!
