If you’re in the UK and you want to help the 1,000+ arrestees from the London #ExtinctionRebellion protests, I hear the best place to donate is Green and Black Cross.

See greenandblackcross.org/get-inv for direct debit instructions, or email gbclegal@riseup.net for a one-off donation.

When I look for travel tips for LGBTQIA+ travelers, the only info I get is: here's all the clubs that gay men like.

No, that's not what I want! I want to know what cafes queer women hang at, what spa would be trans friendly, what gallaries can I find work by queer people, what business may have queer owners or employees.

Anyway, where should a pan trans gal hit up in Madrid? Where would I most likely be able to make a friend?

Heat your house with a water brake windmill

"For the off-grid system, directly coupling a mechanical windmill to a mechanical heat pump is the cheapest option, while the combination of a wind turbine and an electric boiler is the most expensive one. All other technologies are in between. Taking into account both investment and operational costs, small-scale heat generating windmills with mechanical heat pumps are equally expensive or cheaper than conventional gas boilers when assuming the typical performance of a small windmill (which produces – over a period of one year – 12% to 22% of its maximum energy output)."

Interesting idea for discreetly helping propagate plants and flowers in neglected urban areas...

Today I saw a TV commercial from BP oil of a little kid throwing a banana peel into the garbage. "We're working on technologies to turn it into jet fuel!" the disembodied voice said.

*That's so stupid*, I think. Compostable waste doesn't go in the trash, it goes in the yard waste, or into the compost pile.

If your community or city doesn't have a recycling and #compost program, it should.

I should have put a or tag on that request for information about how to get hold of useful shade-loving native UK plants, shouldn't I? Consider it done this time.

I'm thinking I let it rest for a few weeks to let the soil get some air. Meanwhile I source some plants. Anyone know where to get some useful, shade loving, preferably native plants that don't cost the earth?

Basically I emptied the compost bin to get the soil. Much of which had been undisturbed in there for years and felt like clay. It's probably poisonous, but what the heck.
