While I was away, my mushrooms flourished, and at least one of my courgettes turned into a marrow.

Pic of the day, 2019, Mt Granier, "Clouds and Cliffs"

Yesterday I went on a hike with a friend, and we went high enough that we spent most of the hike inside the clouds.
I was quiet surreal, and more than a bit magical.
It was also the first time I hiked a trail with over 1100 m elevation gain!
(is that the right way to say it? any hiking bilingual peep around? 1100m de dénivelé positif cumulé...)

I don't really believe in robots that will be hell bent on destroying humanity when they gain sentience. Like have you ever really watched a human? We pack bond with inanimate objects. We give names to everything from our phones, to cars, to coffee pots, and satellites. We say thank you to things for doing their jobs. We actively mourn having to get rid of unusable tech. I mean scientists taught the Mars Rover to sing Happy birthday to itself and bought a cake to celebrate with it, so.. like..

Let's be perfectly clear what happened in MS: Koch Foods proactively decided to break the law in order to make more money and hired undocumented immigrants. When workers fought for back wages, Koch Foods called ICE leaving their workers' children without parents. twitter.com/sensiablue/status/

Kinda pointless to say this since no newbie will see it before doing it but:

Mastodon.art is not that large: if you come in and dump every bit of your back catalog, you will overwhelm the local timeline. At best, folks will only give your last post or two a look. At worst, folks will mute you. (If you're lucky, we'll remember to unmute you later). Pace yourself.

A very very small Pride event in town this year. Bought some rainbow shoelaces in aid of Stonewall charity and got some UNISON leaflets for my son who is looking for a job atm, but didn't stay long. A much smaller affair than last year, sadly.

Here's today's birb - another of everyone's favourite trash corvid and fancy boy, the black billed magpie

There are just too many plums to give away. Even the bloke who said "I'll have as many as you've got!" decided that 7lb was enough.

So we went through the 'shall we make jam, or stew them and freeze the pulp?' thing and have decided that clearly it's time to make plum wine.

I must have another 10lb of plums in the fridge, and the tree is not even half done, so we'll probably end up with enough wine for a year, and/or enough for presents. (Providing it turns out okay, of course.)

I've added a couple new headers to my Increasingly Less-Brief Guide to Mastodon in the last few days, to address some questions I've seen from new users:

* Why should I add a caption to my picture?
* Why can't I search for a specific word or phrase?
* Why can't I quote someone's toot, like a quote-tweet?
* Weird, my server doesn't have a bunch of these features.

I've also changed the list of phone apps I recommend after some useful feedback.

While I'm at it, I'm going to make one more thread of posts, and that's about how you can support :mastoart:•ART.

As many of you know, to accommodate our recent influx of new users I had to purchase a server upgrade to handle the extra weight.

Our instance is fully hosted and managed by @mastohost, who does such a fantastic job keeping us updated and running smoothly!

But it also costs money every month, and we rely on the support of our users to keep going.

Cool. Finished the filing of the link dumping ground on wiki.sunbeam.city/doku.php?id=link_dumping_ground
There's some great stuff on here.
