This is the first book from the library on #ADHD where I could literally open the book and put practical use straight to work.
Written by a professional organizer who sometimes works with ADHD clients, this book is geared towards efficiency above all else, and breaks topics down by rooms or specific tasks in rooms. It's good for house-wide issues or attacking areas where stuff is piled up.
I will be attempting a variety of these suggestions over the next few days.
As the admins drift off to slumber, and the local is eerily silent, we shall relax and murmur to each other of hopes and dreams.
Welcome, sunbeam, to #NightCrew
@checkervest there's literally nothing homeowners hate about homeless people that wouldn't be solved by giving them a home.
They leave trash around! Yeah they lack garbage pickup. Give them a home
They are always ranting and raving. Me too, but I have four walls so nobody sees. Give them a house
They're dirty. They don't have a room dedicated to getting clean. Give them a home
New moderators; SBC meta
Hey y'all, so @alyaza, @RadioAngel and @DissidentKitty have all expressed interest in becoming mods on here. We've used a few different processes for adding moderators, this time around I'm just going to give them the access in software immediately after posting this. I do this because of reasons I stated in this thread: https://sunbeam.city/@puffinus_puffinus/103687599588440648
On February 19, 1942, FDR signed Executive Order 9066, which forced over 120,000 US citizens of Japanese ancestry into concentration camps, where they stayed until 1946.
The Japanese-American community observes today as a #DayOfRemembrance

A bit on the blunt side as far as pruning goes, but having my #PearTree make fruit that it drops over the fence into the neighbors yard will be stopped by my sawing off the end of several branches. I had to thin so much of that fruit anyway, I don't mind that part of the tree will produce less while it recovers and grows some new spurs.
call to action, democratic civil engagement
Hey #pdx and #oregon peeps, there's a bill in the state legislature, HB 4126, that would legislate enhanced sentencing for anyone who covered their face in the commission of a crime--including protests that the police arbitrarily define as "riots".
This is a pretty open attempt to curtail the rights of masked #antifascist protesters, with the added "bonus" of making facial recognition and surveillance easier for the police.
PopMob has the deets over on Facebook, but might be worth calling your state senator and voicing your opposition.
@cosine those interacting with adults need to know that they are all adults, and those interacting with accounts that could be minors should be informed that they are underaged. So, hopefully, there is no accidental boundary crossing.
Like, for example, my choice not to interact with underaged users. I need to know, even generally, how old the other user is before I interact so I know what parameters to work with. And if a minor interacts with an account, and it gets personal, the minor may chose a different reaction based on the age of the user.
