Nice to read a little book review / journal entry I wrote a year ago and it holds up. :)

"God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater" by Kurt Vonnegut

Holy crap! A fox! He didn't seem to want to eat our Food Not Bombs leftovers, but he happily peed near the pile to go on record with the deer, raccoons, (woodchuck?) and possum who love to eat it.

Turns out @mentalina is a genius. Our 7 month old puppy (house horse) goes into his kennel for "quiet time" with his treat puzzle thing he has to manipulate to get treats. You've heard of escape rooms and their puzzles. Huey has a no escape room(tm). :)

American healthcare. 2021.

GP: huh, you should see a dermatologist about this mole. Here's a referral.
Derm: yup, we're gonna remove this mole. It'll take 5 minutes. Done.
Lab: Not cancer, you're fine.
Hospital network: You owe us $738
Insurance: No problem, here's $45.
Me: shuffling paperwork between ~4 corporations, sending $693.

Me: Continually stunned Americans don't vote for universal healthcare.

I refreshed my podcast list. I'm always curious about what other people are listening to, so if you'd be willing to share your OPML files, I'd appreciate it. :)

OK, that's just way too cute. My friend made a huge cardboard rocket ship for his 3 year old to sit in complete with steering wheel and jet thrusters and buttons that turn lights on and off (via Raspberry Pi). No pics for you, I guess, because posting photos of kids feels creepy.

wow, at 6:30 check out that pizza making robot obsoleting my favorite high school job (Pizza Hut)

Apologies to any vision impaired followers I have, I keep trying to do better about annotating photos I post.

Our poor dog doesn't have anything to chew on so he was chewing the wooden endtable. 🙄

I'm struggling to find meaning in his passing. And in the work that we do. We help 25-45 people each week. I feel good about that. I wish we could do more. I wish we could find a way to live in a society where what we do isn't needed. Like all my jobs, I'm trying to find ways to make those jobs unnecessary. Suggestions welcome.
Thank you all. For making this world a little bit kinder than you found it. Every week. ❤

While he has accounts in a few social media platforms, he had not been active on any of them for several years.
I will miss Tim. With me, he was always gentle and kind and anxious to help Food Not Bombs. Sometimes he tried to help too much. More than his medical conditions would allow.

Steph and I have been volunteering with Food Not Bombs for ~6 years. Of all of our patrons, I was most involved with my friend Tim. Tim passed away on Thursday in his apartment, apparently from some combination of his many long-standing medical problems. His wife decided there would be no funeral or memorial service. I wasn't able to find any obituary or notice of any kind online. 1/
