Pink, white, yellow too
But violets are violet
And violet’s not blue

We’re announcing a call to action against Trump’s declaration of emergency status for the border wall’s funding. February 18th is the day, let’s get to work.

really need a "how to work remotely when you are prone to depression and executive dysfunction" article

You know, upon finding out that St. Valentine is also the patron saint of bees and beekeepers, I kinda want Valentine's day to be Bee Day from now on. Buying local honey and honey treats, propagating bee-favored plants, cute bee and comb-shaped gifts... :blobaww:

It's that time again! Allow your shoulders to drop. Let your jaw loosen.
