Got a new brain bucket! My old one was pushing six or seven years now (wasn't keeping track... 😳) and the internal webbing-to-tension-crown bits finally fell apart.

This was the most visually boring offering they had in stock in my size at Sweet Pete's (on Bloor) - Bontrager Solstice. Pretty comfortable so far! Good ventilation.

The average temperature has risen ever so slightly so of course now she thinks she's a liquid.

This presentation on "Emacs for Writers" - youtube.com/watch?v=FtieBc3Kpt - is about a non-programmer using Emacs to write a book. Uses many fancy features in org-mode, which makes me want to really learn to use it.

my sixty something mother put rainbow patches on her and my father's luggage When going on a cruise

not one per bag

no

one per side

cause they could find them easier

she said they met so many nice people when she has the rainbow on her luggage

won't listen to my father when he frumpy grumpy tells her what his fox and news friends told him about the rainbow

So

They travel with rainbows on all their luggage and meet all the nicest people
