In my village, 13 people voted for the green, ecological list. 13 people! That's enough for a banquet table at the Sleeping Beauty Castle.

Question from France: Where is #DrWho when you really need him?

What a night of a catastrophe in France ... 🥶

@cohanf Horrible wins for the far-rights, in my region up to 50%. The far-right leader howls for new elections and our President is so crazy that he announces the dissolution of the National Assembly that very night. He calls new elections too early (30 June), no time for campaigning (probably so as not to disrupt the Olympics.) We are all in a bit of a state of shock. The fascists drink champagne.

Deutschland und Frankreich stellen die meisten Abgeordneten des EU-Parlaments. In De sind die Grünen erschreckend abgesackt. Nach Schätzungen der letzten Woche geht es in Frankreich darum, ob sie es überhaupt ins Parlament schaffen. Düstere Zeiten für Klimaschutz. https://www.theguardian.com/world/live/2024/jun/09/eu-europe-elections-2024-results-news-updates-live-latest?filterKeyEvents=false&page=with:block-6665e0718f083af419fdeff5#block-6665e0718f083af419fdeff5

Deutsche Zack-Zack-Ordnung gewohnt, fühlt es sich für mich komisch an, wenn ich in Frankreich bei der geheimen Wahl die Stimmzettel der Parteien von einem Tisch nehmen muss, an dem ich alle Wahlhelfer*innen kenne und die mich: "Was die wohl jetzt nimmt!?"

Also eine Auswahl der schlimmsten Extremisten aller gegensätzlichen Seiten genommen und nonchalant unauffällig, was ich wirklich wähle. Die Extremisten mit Wohlbehagen in der Kabine in den Papierkorb geknüllt.

A friend who works at the polling station told me about the turnout in France, which is a tragedy (45.26% but 2 points plus than last time). And as my progressive colleagues said: I hope you have some schnapps at home for the results in the evening. It's frightening in several countries ... https://www.theguardian.com/world/live/2024/jun/09/eu-europe-elections-2024-results-news-updates-live-latest (I read the Guardian, they have the surveys earlier than French media.)

Internet hilft: In Frankreich haben wir strenge Vorschriften zu Wahlen. Ab einem bestimmten Zeitpunkt dürfen Parteien nicht mehr beworben werden, bis zu einem bestimmten Zeitpunkt keine Umfrageergebnisse zu Resultaten veröffentlicht werden. Das gilt auch für privat, in Social media. Wer angezeigt wird, zahlt dicke Strafen.
Ein Grund, warum wir heute abend recht früh an ausländischen Medien hängen: die dürfen das! Fr. Accounts reden dann drüber, als sei es ein Gerücht, so bleibt's legal. 😎

My favourite trees: the old village lime trees between the church and our museum. They are humming with bees now - and later we sell the delicious lime tree honey with it's scent of early summer.

Lime tree flowers and buds.
A look above me into the lime tree. It's full of flowerd.

The #EuropeanParliament is the only directly elected transnational assembly in the world. Almost 350 mio people are voting for the 720 members in the second-largest democratic election in the world.
Right-wing extremists are threatening our democratic achievements. Vote, so that their votes are not the only ones! Only democracy can bring us to reforms for even more democracy. Don't let the far-right climate deniers delete our lives, our planet!

Today I was as guest in our heritage centre. We hosted the Clothing Swap Club "Pomme Fripes" https://www.facebook.com/DNAlsace/videos/1370049143886906/
You bring 6 pieces and can take until 6, so I found a summer dress and 3 shirts in a gaudy jungle design (never had these colours before). 😂

It was a pleasure to experience the organiser's enthusiasm. She charmingly inspires people to take a more sustainable approach to fashion. Shopping at her pop-up events is pure fun!

Earlier in the museum, I gave our #geese fresh water. It's hot and the animals drink a lot. I've never experienced that before: they thanked me with gestures and words! 🥰 Breed: Elsässer #Gans http://www.zooenc.eu/de/elsasser-gans/

Staff swap: The colleague who holds the children's workshop with me in the museum next week (my premiere with children) only speaks French (the one originally planned is trilingual). What to do if I don't find the words?
We found the solution: "Look, in the Petit Robert, the word definitions are also only in French." https://dictionnaire.lerobert.com/

I have to prepare some vocabulary like byssum, tailor birds or silk worms. 😁

Meine Wahlkarte für die Europawahl war immer noch nicht im Briefkasten. 😴 Ich brauche sie nicht unbedingt zum Wählen, weil die Wählerinnen-Listen den Ämtern digital vorliegen.
Aber ich hab sie mir jetzt ausgedruckt, weil darin steht, wo genau das Wahlbüro liegt. Nicht, dass man das in diesem Kuhkaff nicht auch ohne Adresse finden würde. Einfach fürs Gefühl. 😁
Jede Stimme gegen Extremist

Last minute poster for our cultural heritage centre. Today we are hosting Pomme Fripe, a #secondHand swap ring. You bring 6 items of #clothing and can take just as many with you. It occurred to me that this could be exactly my target audience for #VisibleMending!

Unfortunately, I often hear people say: ‘You're ahead of your time’. That's how backward this area is sometimes! #FastFashion is a big problem, often people laugh about me because I repair clothes. 🙄 Too many would never do it.

59 years ago today, Griswold v. Connecticut guaranteed the right to birth control.

Justice Thomas says the Supreme Court should "reconsider" that ruling.

And this week, 38 GOP senators voted against the Right to Contraception Act.

Republicans are coming for birth control.

@rbreich They are coming for fighting against women. It's pure fascist domination.

In the Clarion-Clipperton Zone of the Pacific Ocean between Mexico and Hawaii, marine scientists have discovered animals humanity has never seen before: creatures who live very different lives, in the permanent darkness of the abyssopelagic.

@ScienceDesk A fascinating link, thank you! This Barbie sea pig! 🤩

Humans have this arrogance of perceiving everything unknown to them as ‘alien’. Yet there are more non-human creatures crawling around in our bellies than humans on earth (8.1 billion only): The human microbiota consists of the 10-100 trillion symbiotic microbial cells harbored by each person. The aliens are us.😉

I would like to show them : What do you know that / or ‘cut fabrics’? Spontaneously I can think of: , , (silkworms), leaf-cutter

edit: Thanks a million for your wonderful inspirations! It will not only be great for children but also for a later summer podcast episode! I am so amazed by all these skills in the animal kingdom.

Thanks to all your inspirations, I found tent caterpillars, here some photos/videos: https://facultyweb.cortland.edu/fitzgerald/Shelter%20Building.html

All these animals are so fascinating that I'm sure humans learned spinning and weaving from watching nature.
