The cat on the left is a larger brown/black striped mackerel tabby with clear green eyes and a bright white chest and feet. The smaller cat on the right is dark grey with shining green eyes and a diamond-shaped patch of white fur on her chest. Meet Henry and Diamond.

Three good things for today, 4/13/2024:

  1. Finished and filed my taxes, and will be getting a refund! 💰

  2. Found another teeny tiny seedling sprouting in my flower garden. 🌱

  3. Surprised and delighted to discover that my day lily from last year seems to have survived the winter (with no help from me) and appears to be coming back to life! ☀️

Did you use a colander to see or take pics of the eclipse? I know we laugh at it, but I seriously enjoy seeing others’ colander pics. In such a divided time, at least we all have colanders in common! Anyone remember Hands Across America? This is like that, but with colanders 🤣 Please post your pics and use the hashtag (and maybe ?). Here’s mine, from :

So I just went for my physical, and it's wrapping up, I'm waiting for my dr. to come back. Suddenly, he comes in all excited, grabs my arm says, come here! We go out to the patio outside his office, he hands me the Special Eclipse 3-D Glasses Thingies, and says, put these on, it'll be black til you look up!

And it was, til I looked up and saw my very first eclipse.

Yes, I have a very cool dr. who I've gone to for decades.

So, I'm curious about exactly how much of Fedi is blocking threads.

Boost for reach please. So the poll gets good info.

PS. This isn't a debate post or anything. Just want info if you're willing to share. Thanks!

@BeAware Are you meaning this to be a poll of individual account-level users, or instance-level admin? Or both?

“Ethics”😂

’s Lawyers Told the Court That No One Would Give Him a Bond. Then He Got a Lifeline, but They Didn’t Tell the Judges.🤨

An appeals court reduced Trump’s bond by more than 60% after his attorneys claimed it was a “practical impossibility” to pay the full amount. Their failure to disclose a proposal from a billionaire financier may have violated ethics rules” https://www.propublica.org/article/trump-bond-disclosure-appeals-court-hankey

@GottaLaff Hoo boy. The plot thickens…

I know all this shadiness sucks, but I’m actually comforted that these details are coming out so fast, rather than five years from now in someone’s exclusive book. That’s gotta mean something!

Might be wrong here, but seems like this may be a bigger deal than a clerical error as is being widely reported:

Rejected and ‘returned for correction’: Docs for Trump’s $175M bond get bounced >>> https://lawandcrime.com/high-profile/rejected-and-returned-for-correction-docs-for-trumps-175m-bond-get-bounced/

It may be that the bond company didn't report their financials because they have insufficient collateral to secure a bond of this magnitude. In which case the bond is no good, Trump doesn't have a bond, and he is out of time.

Let's see how this gets resolved...

tiamat271,
@tiamat271@mastodon.online avatar

@mastodonmigration @GottaLaff I’m still a bit confused though. I understand that the initially filing was rejected because it lacked required information, James is challenging the validity of the bond itself, and non-involved lawyers reviewing the publicly-available information say it doesn’t satisfy the terms. But has the court actually/officially rejected it on these grounds yet? Or are we still just speculating/hoping that it will be?

UNMC's "The Transmission" today is all about HPAI H5N1.

I have seen this phrase before:
"The risk to the general public remains low, but..."

@ai6yr Not sure if you can see this (from threads), but seems like a decent realistic perspective about the current situation.

I have no idea if this will be bad or not, but the people insisting it’s nbd because“there’s no evidence it’s transmissible from human to human” obviously don’t realize how most viruses get started. We are stupider than we were in 2019.

Off I go for awhile. We drive home to California from BC today… first stop: Portland, OR.

We’re moving here permanently in May.

I’ll post news when I can. It gets boring in the car, so I’m happy to do that, but the connection often goes out, so…

So far, it appears you can be a "Feng shui" expert by making up whatever dang thing you want and writing it down. Also, they believe in ghosts.

@whoosh @mlanger @ai6yr I appreciate Ben’s posts, even the bad news ones. I think it helps me have a more realistic awareness of my own risk factors, and understanding and preparing for those risk factors help me feel safer. Also, Ben’s mix of good/bad news posts serves as an example of balance for me: be aware of danger and try not to die, but also make DIY soaps and be a friend to bees! Trying to emulate by finding my own balance. 👍

Oh, one more thing... for those of you following the saga:

Leaky roof fixed! Trumpy Roof Guy did a good job, sez I reluctantly, but I'm awfully glad he did. Glad to be done with him.

Our favorite contractor is up next, ASAP, to fix the damage in the wall/ceiling.

Now if only the house would sell...

@GottaLaff Good morning, Laffy! This is NOT urgent, just when or if you have the time (or just ignore, no worries!).

Can you share who you follow on threads? I’d like to follow some accounts now that they’ve federated, but it’s hard to figure out who’s there. Are there any that you follow and would recommend?

tiamat271,
@tiamat271@mastodon.online avatar

@GottaLaff I’m not on threads so I wasn’t sure I could see your profile without an account. Let’s find out!

tiamat271,
@tiamat271@mastodon.online avatar

@GottaLaff Yeah I can’t see your followers/following without a threads account :(

@tiamat271@mastodon.online avatar

@GottaLaff Unfortunately threads is a no-go for me, so I’m waiting for threads people to turn on their fediverse sharing settings so I can follow them from mastodon. Top of my list is Angry Staffer (🤞), but I’m not sure who else is there. If you hear of any other important threads accounts that have enabled sharing to fediverse, could you please let us know?

This day. Already.

Another 🇨🇦 house we wanted to see, already sold. Then take the damn listing down. That's happened 2x in 2 days.

Roofer supposed to fix leak at our Calif. home for sale this wkend. Supposed to pour🌧️ so he'd have to cancel, we;d have to put hold on house; coming today to see if he can do it. Sigh. Did I mention we discovered he's a major Trumpy? We noticed 2 stickers on his truck. I wanted to fire him but can't rt now

Can't sign in to Threads from Mac (not really a bad thing)

@Danetteb @GottaLaff I found out my accountant is a trumper when I visited his office in person for the first time a few years ago (he had paraphernalia on display). I’ve been doing my own taxes ever since.
