  1. Spent most of today putting Mom’s affairs in order and cleaning the house (especially the kitchen and associated dished). Still coming to terms with this. The HME guy came to the house today to pick up the hospital bed, oxygen concentrator, 5 x portable oxygen bottles and bottle carrier. Also picked up Cagney’s ashes from Sunrise Veterinary Clinic. Made my car payment on line at around 11 PM.

  1. Spent most of today putting Mom’s affairs in order and cleaning the house (especially the kitchen and associated dished). HME was supposed to come to the house today to pick up the hospital bed, oxygen concentrator, 5 x portable oxygen bottles and bottle carrier. Now that’s pushed back to tomorrow. Still coming to terms with this.

    Suspicious male pedestrian on Georgetown NW

    About twenty minutes ago, there was a guy trying to open my front door, ringing the doorbell, etc. When I answered the door, he asked for a “Cindy.” I replied “No Cindy here.” He said “My bad” and appeared to leave the area.

    Not only legal to intentionally spread it, but subsidize those who get it, as they do in San Francisco East (Santa Fe, New Mexico).

    I would prefer that Lockdown Lujan put a plastic bag over her head instead of goofing around with that mask. The bag will keep in any virus droplets, as well as the eeeee-vil, toxic carbon dioxide that she keeps exhaling.

    Lockdown Lujan (Michelle Lujan Grisham) can probably top Whitmer where inanity and insanity are concerned.

    1. Skimming through the Proboards just now was the first time I’ve read any message board in years.

    2. Haven’t used Discord yet, though I’m on a few other networking services (Diaspora*, Friendica, Spreely, etc.).

    3. This Facebook group is one of the better ones that I’ve come across, and I’ve been on Facebook since 2008.

    NOTE: I’ve never actually played the game with others. I just get a kick out of reading the books and playing out scenarios in my head on occasion.

    IF Fuckerberg actually does end up incarcerated, it will most likely be at some Club Fed place, with its own golf course, among other amenities.

    Shades of 2016, when Hillary Clinton cheered the imminent “demise” of the coal mining industry.

    How is President Hillary doing these days?

    “E” would be the letter, and the word it completes constitutes a felony under the New Mexico Statutes Annotated.

The WrapFacebook Will Remove Content Organizing Protests Against Stay-at-Home Orders, Zuckerberg Says by Sean Burch

Consider Diaspora*, Flote, Friendica, Gab, Liberty.Me, MeWe, Minds, Pocketnet, or Spreely as possible alternatives to Facebook and Twitter.

http://diasp.org/people/797c4c40d5020132c71100259069449e

Diaspora* doesn’t have pages or groups, and it helps if you can read German, French and Spanish, but there is some interesting stuff there.

https://flote.app/mikewb1971

https://nerdica.net/profile/mike

Friendica is similar to Diaspora, along with the posts in Russian and Japanese.

https://gab.ai/mikewb1971

Gab is a less-censored version of Twitter.

https://liberty.me/members/mikewb1971/

https://mewe.com/i/mikewb11971

MeWe lets you create groups at no charge, but charges you per month for pages. Also, they don’t let you share links for anything there (including your own stuff) outside of MeWe.

http://minds.com/mikewb1971

On top of this, Facebook won’t let you post links to any content on Minds, hence the above URL.

https://pocketnet.app/mikewb1971

https://spreely.com/mikewb1971

Spreely offers the same sort of stuff as Facebook (pages, groups, video channels), but doesn’t seem to do the same sort of arbitrary lefty-biased shadow-banning that we’ve seen on Facebook.

Thus, I’m slowly duplicating my Facebook pages and groups on Spreely, in advance of a mass migration.

Also, while Facebook will allow you to post links to Spreely, the FB system labels it as “403 Forbidden.”

https://youme.social/profile/2220

YouMe seems to be a new outfit. Like MeWe, they don’t seem to let you share links of what you post outside their system.
