Pinned toot

In yr honor, 💌 ✉️
I am sending you ladies an ad. Might be useful to you or families or coworkers. Non FB social media but also streaming entertainment service, email security alerts, emergency broadcast channels during incidents, video conferencing & phone calls, file sharing.

The social media & parts of that are free, but the other things (all of them & whatever else the host creates) cost pro subscription 5/month. Seems a bargain to me.

It felt really good to go Pro.

Roughly a coffee a month, to support a social media forum which
*doesn't sell my data,
*doesn't sell my screen to advertisers, manipulators, & propagandists,
*doesn't platform trolls to chew up my peace of mind or the possibility of practicing & enjoying civility.

Thank you, CounterSocial, for this opportunity to support something I can respect.

The pandemic is NOT over. It appears to be far from over. And it can kill, cause life long health problems still.

Be catty.

I like this textbook as a good introduction to Buddhism.

I have not viewed this yet, but I greatly respect the source:

:) I am no longer entirely a secularist, though I have great respect for that approach.

Yes, so many things suck. It's all unfair, & stupid, & destroying our biosphere & politics & driving us bonkers with pain, fear, anger.

Nonetheless, it is possible to make choices about our verbal & mental & physical behavior. It is possible to be helped & to help each other, by building up the good & better in our lives.

This sort of thing also happens during 2020.

Don't miss it. :) Maybe nourish it.

For those wondering: Masks are $20 for the first (includes shipping in the US) and additional are $15 each. I use high quality quilting cotton and muslin along with fabric yarn ties rather than elastic. I have the following fabrics available plus solid black, solid medium gray and medium blue. I do donate a mask for each one sold so if you need a mask but can’t afford one, please reach out. I’ll keep making and donating as long as I have supplies! I now offer a child size for ages 4-8 as well.

That was such an agreeable meal, I am having it again. Oatmeal suits and soothes distress.

i think it's time for oatmeal. Maybe with walnuts & cardamon, and a bit of dark brown sugar.

@th3j35t3r I notice the pdf user manual is out of date on latest PRO features.

I cannot volunteer but maybe someone already has it on list?

Making Roast Pork and Shrimp Pho w/ Star Anise tonight for the first time.

Any suggestions from the COSO Cooks out there?

Much appreciated. 🙏

Good night, CoSo.

@0x56 lol

You have a few duplicates. I had one I added several times before I noticed the option to toggle Match Entire Word (or Phrase)

What Filters do you most use, to reduce stress from time to time? (CoSo Filters eliminate content from your feed, & can always be edited.)

Please comment if you'd like to share (so that more posts will so tagged)

Other comments also welcome of course.

Don't let your kids use these hand sanitizers. They absorb through the skin and metabolize into formaldehyde. (Adults probably shouldn't use them either)

List to follow this toot

and good morning to the dog people; I do not want to neglect you.
