I had to schedule an appointment with a neurologist, and I can't tell you how incredibly relieved I am to see that the doctor is a young woman.

@APBBlue My primary care physician with a large hospital system put in a referral for me to see a neurologist, and 18 months later I finally have an appointment in July. The neurology department froze appointments for all new patients because so many of their physicians quit. I had to wait for them to hire more. Our medical "system" is not a well-functioning system.

I like how my bowl turned out. Even though the glazing went super wonky, I like the mottled effect. Sometimes mistakes turn out pretty well!

Straight out of Midland, Michigan, USA--just when you think you've heard it all. In the news: "Woman found living inside a Michigan grocery store sign".

Quote from article: "A woman in Midland had a novel approach to living rent-free: post up in a sign above a grocery store and turn it into a makeshift apartment."

My husband and I just adopted this sweet girl from Michigan Humane. She is a very large lap dog and cuddlebug, and a crazy ball of energy. Unfortunately, she has heartworm and will need some powerful treatment that requires that her heart rate stay low for about 3 months. No walks longer than 5 minutes. No chasing squirrels in the backyard. Good luck to us!! (photo attached)

I'm thrilled that the native wildflower seeds I threw into my backyard garden three years ago are finally producing Columbine flowers. Yippee!!

(Last year they got eaten before flowering.)

  1. Got home yesterday after more than 24 hrs of travel between Dharamshala, India and Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA.

  2. Ate great Indian food.

  3. A highlight was visiting the Dalai Lama's temple located adjacent to where we were staying in McLeod Ganj. We were fortunate to witness the hauntingly beautiful Tibetan Buddhist monks' throat singing. Their deep vibrations get you right in the heart and kishkes (Yiddish for "guts"). (Video attached, turn sound up.)

    @rooster Ugh, I remember those awful times with my kids! The girls kept re-infesting one another with their relentless hugging other lice-infested kids at school. It seemed to go on forever. Just thinking about it makes my head itchy.

    What is a little white lie you were told as a child, that you believed for too long?

    I was way too old when I figured out a human couldn't actually get sucked down a drain or flushed down a toliet. I used to cling to my little brothers, and pull them out of the bath any time my Mum would pull to plug.

    @RickiTarr "If you step on a crack, you'll break your mother's back." Although I never really believed it, til this day I still try to avoid stepping on cracks in the sidewalk. Seems like tempting fate. However, my mother died a year ago, so maybe it's safe to step on the cracks.

    Ben Barres was a trailblazing transgender neurobiologist who promoted equity & diversity.

    His pioneering research on glial cells changed science & he became the 1st person admitted into the National Academies of Science.

    Barres was a strong advocate for women, early career scientists & the + community at a time when few people openly discussed gender identity. https://www.forbes.com/sites/matthewherper/2017/12/28/mourning-ben-barres-the-transgender-scientist-who-changed-neuroscience/

    Excerpt from his autobiography: https://stanmed.stanford.edu/ben-barres-autobiography-transgender-scientist/

    @nancylwayne@mastodon.social avatar

    @Sheril One of the most striking examples of the impact of gender bias is from a story that Dr. Barres told in the journal Nature: “Shortly after I changed sex, a faculty member was heard to say “Ben Barres gave a great seminar today, but then his work is much better than his sister’s.” There was no sister. Ben and “the sister” were the same person. Gender bias would have made it much more difficult to be a respected scientist when Ben was formally known as Barbara.

    My latest blog, “A True Story of Sexual Harassment and Bullying, Part 5: Loyalty, At What Cost?” is the fifth of a six-part interview series with a woman lawyer who endured years of first being sexually harassed and then bullied by the manipulative and abusive man she reports to.

    In this installment, Anna needs to decide what is more important—her loyalty to the nonprofit organization she helped develop, or her mental and physical well-being.

    First scans of Silbersalz arrived. It's motion picture film (really, it's Kodak Vision3 in different packaging) developed in ECN-2. It is impressive how fine the grain is. But their lab processing time is much slower than I expected.

    @skaly Sorry to hear about you being overwhelmed.

    I'm doing pretty well; thank you for asking.

    Any day that I can spend time in the pottery studio is a good day--even when things don't go according to plan. I spent a couple of hours this morning glazing some pots. The photo attached shows one of them. The rough spots usually smooth over in the kiln firing.

    nancylwayne,
    @nancylwayne@mastodon.social avatar

    @skaly Thanks! It might look like crap once it's fired. Crossing my fingers that the kiln gods are kind to my little pot.

    @skaly And my little covered pot came out of the kiln today--and I like how it turned out!
