Lola doesn't like tea but wants a "Tea" party with her uncle and plushies. So they have juice and cookies.
Waffle wants to join too.

I decided to try a bigger format and some new pencils, so this one ate up six weeks of my life 😂 Barn Owl, colored pencil on smooth bristol, 12"x12".

There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal. - Toni Morrison

The Owl of Wisdom! This piece was originally painted with india ink, coffee, and watercolor! Then they're printed with silver foil! They're available for purchase here!

Day 13 cave painting stitch along -  Large Female Rhinoceros.

Overall hoop design by Erica Zubris, based on the cave in Chauvet, France. Each drawing traced from cave art photos.​​​​​​

This is Batson Creek, near Salcombe. Painted last year in September using watercolour and gouache. The structure on the opposite bank is a lime kiln.

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain


Patients shouldn't have to be tactical about how they present their symptoms to physicians.

i read a thing recently that blew my mind a little.
went something like:

people can imagine time travel to the past and one little act making massive differences in the timeline

but in their present they think even the greatest effort they can put in will not make any difference to the future

"women were encouraged to see the economic gains of affluent females as a positive sign for all women"

I would like to (dis)prove something my transphobic father said.
#transgender people, did you choose a name that’s a diminutive of or sounds like your deadname?
Preferably boost for a larger sample size.

Another quick question for people who speak and write in languages other than English: Do you get upset when people use translation software to reply to your posts if they are not native speakers/writers? Why or why not?

If y'all could boost this post so that I can get more responses from people who speak/write English and at least one other language, that would be great! #CommunityDevelopment

You are all a great influence on me.

food recall (Jif peanut butter, salmonella contamination)

"The J. M. Smucker Co. is recalling select Jif® peanut butter products sold in the U.S. due to potential Salmonella contamination. Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain."

They include a long list of affected product UPC codes, as well as a lot code range of 1274425 – 2140425. Lot codes are printed alongside the best-used-by date.

Dieses Bild habe ich für MrsButterd's (Instagram) dtiys challenge gemalt und mag es noch recht gerne, obwohl es schon etwas älter ist.
Ich habe das Speedpaint dazu auch auf YouTube hochgeladen, schaut da gerne mal vorbei.
In Zukunft ist da auch noch mehr Content geplant :))
