In the past I greatly narrowed my focus of work outside the virtual world. Thinking that might be a proper course of action extended to the internet as well. Hard to imagine being totally disconnected, but mostly so is a thought to be considered.

as vezes entro na internet só para procurar coisas e/ou pesquisar... não olho nada  em relação a tudo que é outra coisa :-)
So you can concentrate, but do you really have to furrow your brow so deeply?

Picked my #BulletJournal back up after several days of letting it slide.
Great time with all of children and their families today. Most pleasant. A bit of quiet just now is welcome.

Soup Kitchen Lines Swell on Eve of Election in Sputtering Brazil - BloombergQuint
If nothing is done, the country’s budget will burst next year (see chart above), breaking a constitutional spending freeze, according to finance ministry projections. At stake is the future of the second-largest economy in the Americas and the creditworthiness of $950 billion in federal government debt.

Like most countries, Brazil hasn’t done a great job balancing its budget, but the recent crisis has exposed perilous structural problems that lock it into ever more spending and larger deficits. With more than 90 percent of all budget items mandated by law, the government has almost no room to maneuver on spending.

The article's opening leans toward the sensational, but the economy is in a bind, and the next president may not have the motivation to fix it. Politicians love to spend money that's not theirs (none of it is). Money is power, and the more money that flows into government coffers, the more powerful government grows.

outro fantasminha dando like aqui ?
Pois é, precisamos chamar os ghostbusters, né?
So why do I have this urge of late to start every post with the word "so"? #weird
So I'm on a power surge without realizing it. Cool.
At least you don't use "like" and "you know" multiple times per sentence.

But it's like, you know, entendeu, really.

Sorry, nothing personal but couldn't resist this one.
I like it, a lot.
Good meet tonight, good number in the group, our last time to meet with this group for several weeks.
Data importante de hoje. Torne-o mais importante ainda.

The Missus has started making biscuits again with almond milk. And lately making gravy with said milk. This lactose-intolerant human is happy. #food
I've never tried to use almond milk for cooking. Do the finished products have a notable difference in texture or flavor?
Sometimes, probably depending on the amount of milk a recipe calls for, you might get a slight taste. But I don't notice it in the biscuits or gravy. The wife makes the milk from the almonds. She used to do it by hand and blender. Our son bought her an almond milk machine, and that strains the meat of the almonds out even finer.
Anybody tinkered with #FedWiki? I've not read much on it, but it seems like anybody can tinker with anybody's text, is that it? That doesn't appeal to me ... Then dat files are like that, right? Anybody can clone them and modify. Stuff over my head. #wondering #mysteries
Tenho visto às vezes. Tenho uma conta velha na diaspora que fica recebendo emails de curtidas.
Eu tinha lido uma parte daquela discussão. Triste que a gente tem que lidar com tais coisas.
Two big moments yesterday, and I'm often getting to bed after midnight these days, which I don't like. But it was a good day overall, even if I did miss my workout. Late start today, for me, but my to-do list doesn't seem big. What am I missing? With big trip coming up next week, must be more to do that I have down. #life
George Orwell's Six Rules for Writing Clear and Tight Prose | Open Culture

(i) Never use a metaphor, simile, or other figure of speech which you are used to seeing in print.
(ii) Never use a long word where a short one will do.
(iii) If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out.
(iv) Never use the passive where you can use the active.
(v) Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word, or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent.
(vi) Break any of these rules sooner than say anything outright barbarous.

Powerful phrases
These phrases come from today’s Plow New Ground devotional by Ed. M., about Abraham offering his son Isaac in Gen. 22. [God] wanted an understanding of who He is more than He wanted burnt offerings, Hosea 6:6. Faith is trusting God to provide what He promised. We admire [Abraham’s] faith without trying to copy his […]

Dipped my toe into the waters of another area of open-source social media. Most of the people there must be high on something. Either that or the Apocalipse has arrived.
That was my impression also.
They say the bees are also dying. Must be the end times upon us. ;-)
Good day today, fairly productive, especially this morning, much of my to-do list done. There's stuff that didn't get crossed off, but I'm good with that. Three of the big items were accomplished. This was my first weekday to work from the new home office. Now, do I go work out tonight, or not? #work #life
