Did this really happen? It’s almost as if the arc of the moral universe does bend toward justice.


Former President George W. Bush: “The decision of one man to launch a wholly unjustified and brutal invasion of Iraq. I mean of Ukraine.”

It wasn't just the Death Star destroyed at the end of Return of the Jedi. Most of Endor's forest was cut by loggers.

Inspired by the people learning Welsh on Duolingo, I returned to it to learn Spanish.

Hello toot friends, I bring #antiLawn memes.
I'm hoping to radicalise you all against the boring monoculture lawn and turn you into biodiversity defenders.

@Ogl77 That sounds interesting. I'm slowly working through Spanish, and my plan was to move to Portuguese next for work. But I'll be interested to see how you get on.

@Ogl77 How does Duolingo tackle the writing? Is it pinyin?

Gair y Dydd: mis y gog – hen enw ar fis Mai (neu fis Ebrill).

Word of the Day: mis y gog – an old name for April or May (literally, 'the month of the cuckoo').

Gadawais y baddon adar ar camera trwy'r dydd heddiw. Mae dipyn bach o ddŵr yn gallu gwneud lot o wahaniaeth.

I left the camera on the bird bath through the day today. A small amount of water can make a lot of difference.

I sometimes do landscapes, here's Pen-y-fan in the Brecon Beacons, which a Welsh friend told me was the best photo he'd ever seen of this beautiful place. Photographed from the back garden of another friend's cottage on a lovely visit several years ago.

@AngharadHafod @CSRDay It was hung along the High street, along with Dragon, when I lived in Knighton.

One or two accounts regularly posting things that don't interest you is manageable, but the more you add, the easier it is to lose the signal in the noise. With no algorithm working to keep you addicted, it's easy to let your Home timeline get overrun. Follow freely, but also be ready to unfollow for basic quality of life reasons. The Federated timeline can be overwhelming, but your Home timeline shouldn't be. You have to tend it like a garden, and a little pruning goes a long way. #feditips

Related to my last post, if you want to know the Welsh name of a bird or plant, is a handy source.

Not sure why it's not got an SSL certificate to make it https://...

Went for a hike with a group of friends yesterday. Didn't see a lot of insects, but a nice patch of these common toothwort, Lathraea squamaria.
They are parasites of other plants, and hence don't need any photosynthetic organs. Only flower, no leaf ! #plants #nature #botany
