April, 2022. Decided it was time to put myself out there. Resurrected my OKCupid profile. Learned that to respond to messages now you need to give them your cell phone. Don't have and don't want a cell phone. Just copied my profile here and stopped looking there. Click to see how I left it. Most of the content is six years old, but the biggest changes have been updated. Did most of the updates during the time at home alone because of COVID-19.
July 15th, 2022. Had a lot to do with this months bike party. Did the whole thing including test rides and route planning committee work. Worked out good for 600ish riders.
August 4th, 2022. I'm reading "The Girl's Guide to Off Grid Living", a memoir by Amanda Kovattana. Fascinating read about how being a Thai-American to begin with guided her into becoming a sustainability activist and something of a performance artist style writer.

April 24th, 2022. The garden is flowering nicely now.
May 20th, 2022. Didn't do much of bike party, but I did do something.

August 1st, 2022: My most recent power bill. See the big spike? That's the evening I cooked a pot of plum jam from the crop of plums I picked at Mary Ann Blackwell's place. She has a great Santa Rosa plum tree.
Those quarters were in my pocket when I looked at that bill. Looks like an exploited factory worker (She's been at that loom 24/7 since 2019.) conferring with a sitting duck.
