Just received my new e-reader, and so far it looks really nice. Text looks sharper than on my previous one, menus seem a bit more intuitive, it’s waterproof, and best of all: with this one I’m not stuck with Amazon, which I find a not very ethical company. Looking forward to many hours of reading!

Thanks Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿- we had a great time! 👋

Last Thursday, at Westray - Orkney, and I’m still smiling.

(Huge thanks to Westraak tours, who made it a great day for us!) you have your own cathedral?!

screen shot of profile I want to report 

Could someone help me to report this profile? I’m blocking it now, but reporting seems like something that can’t be done while on mobile - or st least, I haven’t found it yet

People might also not know Mastodon is not the only type of social media sites that interact here.

There is also:

@pixelfed (Like Instagram)

Peertube (Like YouTube)

(You can see how they look in the pictures in the order that they are mentioned)

You can find more decentralized social media platforms at

Hmmm how do I report a spam account on Mastodon? 🤔

Corylus avellana contorta seems to be ailing. There are new buds on it but the leaves are droopy. I think it's getting plenty of water and it's had new soil recently. Any ideas?

@whakkee to help pets cool down, you can wet, twist and freeze a washcloth, and the animals can lick and chew on it and enjoy the cold and moisture but it's soft on teeth. And reuseable. Once it thaws, you rewet it and freeze it again.

@whakkee I put a wet cool tea towel over my greyhound to cool him down.

I also give him and my other dog ice cubes to crunch up—but it’s important to watch the size as they could damage teeth on big cubes.

With this heat, I put out water for cats who can’t or won’t go inside - my cat’s can (but like it outside), but some other cats may not be able to. Probably the hedgehog who lives in our backyard also drinks from it and maybe birds or insects.

Also when I saw the mailman, I opened the door, offered him a glass of water and filled up his water bottle.

Not saying this to brag, but hoping others do the same. Also: if you have more ideas on how to help people and animals, I’d love to hear them.

The Netherlands has hit a new record of 40.4C. Can we just stop now and go back to more sensible temperatures? Kthxbye

Also: no, the answer is not that we all buy A/Cs, as some people say, because given the amount of energy they use, that only increases the problem.

global warming much? 😩🥵🌞🔥

(And where I live houses don’t commonly have a/c. Given the amount of energy an a/c uses, I think they should only be used in e.g. medical institutions and preferably in combination with solar panels)
