I was checking my profile for other reasons and noticed that I'm hovering just 15 followers shy of 20,000. Eeeek! 😱 Yes, I know it *says* "20K" but Mastodon started rounding up to that weeks ago. 🤷♀️
First, I'm humbled that so many people follow me to get a curated feed of the Fediverse. Thank you! 🥰
Second, being OCD, I'm kinda annoyed that I'm not quite at that big round number. 🤣
So, do a sick-at-home lady a favor and see if you can improve her mental health. Love you all, Lisa. 💖
My mom works at The Schulz museum, they had a very big day for the 50th anniversary of the special. I asked her about Woodstock eating turkey. They don’t talk about it but she just sent me this.
Another classic, incisive post from @mmasnick Re: Elon’s supposed thermonuclear lawsuit against Media Matters:
“So… within the span of about 2 to 3 pages we are told that Elon Musk and exTwitter are passionate supporters of free speech that allow “all viewpoints” to be shared and that Musk is filing this lawsuit to force Media Matters to take down speech that he admits is absolutely true, but where he doesn’t like how they portrayed things.”

I know the odds are low, but the fediverse has come through for me in amazing and unexpected ways before.
For those who don't know me, I'm a 29-year-old support engineer and FOSS enthusiast, who is currently in kidney failure.

Except when your foreign neighbour Keith received eight counterfeit beige sleighs from feisty caffeinated weightlifters.
Today we drove to Bellevue, MI to witness the annual fall migration of thousands of Sandhill Cranes. Turn on your sound to listen to their calls, which can be heard up to 2.5 miles away.
These magnificent #birds nearly disappeared a century ago due to overhunting, but populations rebounded & are now stable in MI.
Sandhill Cranes are among the oldest living birds on Earth with a wingspan of up to 6 ft. Aldo Leopold described them as "nobility, won in the march of eons."
