This was from about a week ago on a pretty cold day. It's warmed up in the last week and today there are many more small patches of open water along the edge and in some of the cracks in the ice.

There's a quickly moving grassroots effort to get Minnesotans to follow Michigan's lead and vote "uncommitted" in Tuesday's primary. Biden must hear that we need a #CeasefireNOW

Please help spread and share the message. RSVP to show the numbers.

I know it looks like an old #iceFishing shelter, and it still is, sort of. But I havent set it on a #Minnesota lake for 12 years, not since my son with #autism reimagined it into a private club house where he could set the rules and do what he wanted. And then, he converted it into his workshop where he built high powered nerf guns. And then into a chicken coop that produced more eggs than we could give away to neighbors. And then into a woodshed because he loved bon fires. It is still filled with perfectly dry logs he harvested and hand sawed.

I didnt always encourage his ever changing interests, but he didnt need me to. If he was interested enough in a project, he made it happen.

Raising an #autistic kid with relentless energy was hard, but really rewarding. But I still have a lot of cleaning up to do.

Check out the above article! Exciting changes in zoning and building codes are on the horizon!
Particularly interested in the single staircase one - I watched an urban development YouTube video about this issue and it really seems like it will play a big role in making more of the smaller, affordable apartment buildings that are great for cities.

It is my sincere belief that you can’t get sambal in the U.S. that tastes anything like sambal in Malaysia and Indonesia (unless you go to specific markets to buy brands from those countries). However, the tomato lao gan ma tastes almost exactly like a good sambal matah

(If you try to make any Malaysian dish with the Huy Fong sambal, you will be very disappointed)

@skinnylatte. We have great success with a few home made Sambal fermentations. The Kirsten Shockey cookbook of Fiery Ferments has the recipes if homemade is your cup of tea. We have no travel experience to be a proper judge of the cuisine. , , , , .

folks, watch out for slippery conditions on concrete. I went to bring in my garbage and recycling bins and my feet slid on the ground as I pulled up on them to wheel them inside. The snow landed on the concrete, melted, and is now refreezing as fresh snow falls on top of the wet ice layer.

86% of #Indigenous people in America live outside reservations, often in cities like #Denver, #Seattle and #Portland, where they resettled following the Relocation Act (hi 👋 ).

Indigenous people comprise 2.6% of America’s population, but in 2023, they accounted for 3.9% of those experiencing homelessness. And the #housing inequity is worse in Western cities.

But building affordable housing for Natives is tricky.

Dairy Workers Often Endure Substandard Conditions. The Doesn’t Protect Them.

The attorney general exposed conditions at one dairy where workers lacked heat and plumbing and dealt with mold in their .

Housing like this is common on farms, since dairy workers are excluded from many protections.

A recurring need for people is cell phones.

Our camp alumni (that we're still connected to, that's a big qualification) is ok right now, but the need comes up again and again.

Sourcing, repair, paying for service and especially not overpaying for service.

For us in a lot of help can probably be done by people not even in

Anyone have some skills or contacts?

On The Winter Shore

I stumbled across this lighting, at this angle, on this particular house this evening.

I very much like it.
