Ice from three stories up fell on my head today. (Thank you toque for cushioning the blow.)

A half block later, snow almost got me.

Then snow dumped from a downtown highrise on the sidewalk in front of me.

Is the universe telling me to drop this class in writing a literature review?

Just set up monthly donations to @conservancy to provide more stable funding for a really important non-profit.

Oh and Karen and Bradley recently resurrected the Free-as-in-Freedom oggcast (faif.us/)!

Finally getting around to changing some of my traditionally year-end nonprofit donations into monthly support recurrences.

3 benefits:
