Oh by the way my old friend needs someone to take over her puppet business. No joke. If you would like to make a decent living traveling the world doing puppet shows for people, hit me up. I'll connect you. She built up the business with her husband starting in 1979. They're ready to retire.

Climate change, optimism Show more
Romer, one of this year's Nobel laureates, wrote about optimism towards climate change:
“Complacent optimism is the feeling of a child waiting for presents. Conditional optimism is the feeling of a child who is thinking about building a treehouse. ‘If I get some wood and nails and persuade some other kids to help do the work, we can end up with something really cool.'”
I've been trying to plan a little UK co-op hitchhiking tour, better start this week!
Will start in Glasgow and slowly make my way down south. Looking for sofas/floors to sleep on and co-ops to visit of any kind, but especially digital-y/software ones...
Would like to talk about saving food (esp. with https://karrot.world), web hosting, platform co-ops, volunteers, grassroots, open source, CoTech, social.coop, etc...
Should start in the next couple of days. Lemme know if I should swing by!
Something I said got swallowed by a CW so I'm going to say it openly: If you consider yourself politically left, you cannot just pronounce dark times ahead. You have to give people hope and something to fight for. If you're simply gloom and doom, they will not fight. They will lay down and die. Give them a reason to battle. And they definitely fucking will.
Today's plan ... Show more
Involves heading into the next big town for lunch and supplies, watering ALL the plants, usual cat duties, cooking mackerel, some roast veg and a big vat of soup. And I am hoping to make a headstart on next week's work.
My Sunday in a few words: food, plants, more food, cat.
But first, coffee ☕️
Totally confusing my cat by doing things in the wrong order. 🙀
I'm sure I'll pay for this later, oh well.
