There are few things more heartbreaking than a kid upset by her runny nose but even more upset by taking medicine that will get rid of it.
I foolishly signed up to lead one of the teams for the chili cook-off that my kids’ school puts on every year. I’m going to use mole poblano as the base — but I’m undecided about the protein. Pork? Chicken? Turkey?

Dear Mastodon client app makers:
I’d love a Mastodon client that can show combined timelines (aka unified inbox). Even more if the client could also show timelines from Twitter (could even be read only?). Perhaps RSS support.

I love accessibility, bread, CSS, dead languages, inclusive design, literature, & type.
