Some people say that cows are bad for the environment.
All they do is eat plants and fart.
Kinda like vegans.

So funny.
Damm climate.
CBC's daily hourly report on climate change.
I'm posting this from Traditional lands of the British Empire & the current Lands of The Dominion of Canada.
I also give thanks for this ethos richness bestowed on us via British Colonialism.

Insane!

Also, there is white ash falling in downtown Kelowna right now, September 17, 11 am. No sooner had I put a navy blue t-shirt down on a table it was getting covered. We're scrambling right now to get stuff out from the open that we don't want ash in. :-X :swear:
As WW3 develops, no one is going to be dissing the "preppers." What have you done?

My British friend makes great needlepoint canvases, partnered with a Brit wool store. So sad to see the nice weather go.. happy to start the latest one she sent. I have a hard time just sitting without doing something.
Of course you wanna see it, right?

I have no problem doing nothing, all I have to do is retreat into my head. Thinking, reading, processing, considering. I can't listen to a podcast and clean because as soon as it gets really interesting my brain goes "Hang on, need to pay attention so we'll stop all the background functions" =_=

You need something like this https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/7497102 ... i-have-the (and it's on sale!). Although, it needs to be bigger with "don't test me" added on the bottom . . .

I do them when and if I am watching TV or a movie. As for books it's an addiction. Oh, I don't need to spend much times with my thoughts, that happens about 3am

Me too, on occasion. As I take my ipad to bed with me, listening to a soft voice reading prior to falling asleep, should I awake at 3 am I turn it on again, using the timer to 30 min, I always drift off again, voices and scenes from the past dispelled, thou must do list waits until morning.
Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice. There’s a certain point at which ignorance becomes malice, at which there is simply no way to become THAT ignorant except deliberately and maliciously.
