That was quick. It didn't even last a year (not counting the closed beta period). Not that I'm particularly surprised, because I signed up last summer when you could join, but then ended up almost never using the site.

Also, despite having an account, I did not even get an email from them about this. Though I think I may have disabled even import site update messages when I clicked "unsubscribe" back in April on the mails I got back to back about free plushies and pizza parties or some such crap, even though I had been fairly sure in my account creation that I didn't want promo messages.

But frankly the way site messaging was handled there was one of the problems that made the site unusable for me. Even now when I log in I do not see any closing message prominently in my notice box, just a whole bunch of "recommended for you" stuff. I had to click on the Imzy group to see their announcement from May 24th, and only learned about it now by accident after seeing talk elsewhere.

Apparently the final closing date is June 23rd. But I don't have any content there, so I'm not bothered.

Here's the plan: every Friday, let's recommend some people and/or communities to follow on Dreamwidth. That's it. No complicated rules, no "pass this on to 7.328 friends or your cat will die". Just introduce us to some new things to read.

These were in a second hand shop in Seattle. They are so beautiful - and were so inexpensive - I could not pass them by. My best guess is - volumes 2, 3 and 5 of the Annotated Complete Works of Nogami ? ... but I can't find any further information. Anyone know enough Japanese to decipher what these might be? Or what the stamp on the colophon page means?

Is there some sort of big current wank/kerfuffle going on right now that I've been totally oblivious to? Somehow I never notice these things even if I'm in a fandom at the time they are happening.

I've seen vague references while browsing my network reading list, but as is usual for me I couldn't connect it to anything. They could maybe be referring to the YOI wank that was even featured in this week's OTW newsletter. (A wank I incidentally also missed happening on Tumblr, but then I'm not into YOI though it appears on my dash from time to time because I'm into Check Please! and there is overlap in fans.)

But I'm not sure. I always miss these things.

So we went on a road trip through the interior of BC. I think this might have been the best road trip we've ever done together. Amazing scenery, perfect weather, interesting people along the way. More pictures on my flickr stream (if you go there, be aware there is NSFW / adult content in the stream a little further down).

Places we stayed or stopped: Merritt, Kamloops, Revelstoke, Golden, Banff, Radium Hot Springs, Fernie, Nelson, Argenta, Vernon, Burton, Hope. All interesting in their own way. Next time I'd specifically like to see Osoyoos, Castlegar, Trail, and spend more time in Radium Hot Springs. There is a southern route that comes very near the border in several places that would accomplish that. Perhaps in September.

I don't have a GPS attachment on my camera (apparently they are available for a mere $400) but I was able to track down most of the places we stopped along the highway simply by using Google satellite images and relating them to landmarks in the photos. That sort of amazed me.

How is your garden going so far? Is it looking great? Is the weather fighting you or working with you?

The final show will be streamed at 7PM Sunday on YouTube and Facebook. Details are at https://www.ringling.com/

We're driving down for one of Sunday's earlier shows because returning from Nassau Coliseum after the last show means a long drive back home through the night.

There are still tickets available for shows today and tomorrow, if you want to catch them before they close forever.

Saw the radiation oncologist this morning. (Two hour drive to NoVA, whee.) More info when I get home and have a keyboard instead of phone, but: I adore him, he's given me tons to research, he's willing to schedule me now but also says it's not house on fire urgent since it's not proceeding quickly enough to be an urgent situation (but he didn't downplay it either) and did I mention I adore him?

I feel very much better now that I know I have him, and will feel even better after seeing Mom's guy on the 30th.

Report from a late summer garden (in the southern hemisphere):

Harvest and planting for winter.

My area in Australia is mild enough that cool-weather leafy greens do pretty well over winter, so long as you protect them from frost.

I know most of you equatorially-north folks are just getting into planting times for your gardens - what do you plan to grow this year (and how's that coming along), and is there anything new you're going to try this growing season?

Speaking for myself, I'm trying to grow: cabbage, cauliflower, bok-choy, raab broccoli (I've never had luck with regular broccoli), rocket, brussel sprouts, onions (both the ones you use the leaf stalk and the ones you store the bulb), carrots, parsnips, sugarbeet, and the usual run of beetroot (which I have finally worked out how to cook: bake in individual wrappings of foil, and then after 40 mins, put a dob of butter on top and bake for another 40 mins).
