#Seattle - I'm officially confirmed to lead an edible weeds workshop on Feb 8 at the Meadowbrook Community Center. Even in the middle of winter there are lots of nutritious wild greens; I'll show you a few that are safe and delicious for beginning foragers.
This is part of the Sustainable NE Seattle Hands-On Skills Fair, a full day of free workshops on practical skills for community resilience and lower-impact living. Trying to find a non-FB link for it, but for now:
Free PrEP for the Uninsured
This has been in the works for awhile, but we finally have details.
“Uninsured Americans can now apply for free PrEP drugs through the federal government.”
“HHS announced the details of applying for free PrEP drugs Tuesday. It has set up a new website, GetYourPrEP.com, and it will take applications there or at a toll-free phone number, (855) 447-8410. To qualify, a person must test negative for HIV, have a valid prescription for the medications, and not have prescription drug coverage.”

This weekend I’m taking a weaving class, and even though some of what draws me to weaving is its similarity to the data processing I do for a living, I’m excited about the contrast of making something I can touch, on a purely mechanical machine with which I have to do something for each row instead of just setting up a loop.
And pleased to balance out the stereotypical male bonding I’ll be doing the next day, when my father in law is going to attempt to teach me some golf.
so i've been interested by people doing internet office hours and was considering holding office hours for bike maintenance/commuting advice? is this a thing folks would be into?
(it's probably not the best season in the northern hemisphere for this, especially seeing the drop-off in attendance at the local bike co-op, but maybe a good time to try out the logistics and see if it's a thing)
I feel like I'm doing a lot of catching up with myself this week. One part of that is photo editing, and here are some cute ones from my first official birdwatching trip, back in May: https://www.flickr.com/photos/eldan/albums/72157712053803773

My personal favorite shot is this subway mice showdown!
"More than anyone, black voters know that white America has no tolerance for radical reform, which is why we often defer to candidates who demonstrate that they might be able to win elections. As the Grand Old Party increasingly demonstrates its allegiance to white supremacy, for us, a tap water-temperature Democrat is still better than a store-brand Republican…
@douginamug @GwenfarsGarden There's also evidence to suggest that there's a form of survivorship bias at work: you're more likely to vote right if you're well-off; you're also more likely to survive into old age if you're well-off.
