Pretty much my point, too.

Facebook is only a tool that will be obsolete someday. Hubzilla is a wonderful set of tools that has potential to assist the church even more. A tool cannot be the church of course.

To quote Charlemagne: “To have another language is to possess a second soul.” He might have added that to teach another language is to implant a second soul.

Of course, the very business of reconciling these two souls at any serious level requires considerable mental agility. It compels us to be precise, to confront meaning, to think rationally and creatively and never to be satisfied until we’ve hit the equivalent word, or – which also happens – until we’ve recognised that there isn’t one, so hunt for a phrase or circumlocution that does the job.

10 life imperatives | Fellowship Room
Stay grounded in the goodness and power of God, and grateful for his blessing. You know: “God is great, God is good, and we thank him for our food.”
Don’t say, do, or buy anything stupid. Three things to stay zipped up: your mouth, your pants, and your purse.

Hope we are not hijacking Randal's thread here. His post good too. ;-)

Not at all. You're welcome to be a part of the exchange. I've been unwell lately, so I've not been around much. Thanks!

On my new microblog, a link to today’s memory verse, Heb 13.18. This verse reminds me of a number of truths.

WP may be the way to go after all for a microblog on randal.us, considering YT's limited abilities and the options of software that exist out there. Creators of Known don't respond at all to feedback. Must want money before helping. If the right WP theme will just appear ...

Cold and rainy this morning. List is long of things to do. Weigh-in today put me at lowest ever in years. Even my new jeans are a tad loose.

Daily Comfort : June 11
It is not merely our own life which is affected by our conduct; we are so tied up in bundles that others are made or unmade, by our making or unmaking of ourselves. We are under the most sacred obligations to live worthily, so that we hurt not–but bless those coming after us.

The title of the book of devotionals written for Hillary Clinton, Strong for a Moment Like This, sounds a lot like Mordechai's word to Esther:
"In fact, if you don’t speak up at this very important time, relief and rescue will appear for the Jews from another place, but you and your family will die. But who knows? Maybe it was for a moment like this that you came to be part of the royal family" Esther 4.14 CEB.

The CEB was a version in which the UMC participated, and its publisher, Abingdon Press, distributes it, and may well be the version used in the devotional book, since both are published by Abingdon. (I've not seen it, obviously.)

So now we have Hillary channeling Esther?

(Idea came to me reading this.)

The bread/bakery store down the street is called Padaria Tentação II. It's the second one with this name. "Tentação" is temptation. I suppose they want to tempt you with their goods. Not so appealing a name, however, for whom temptation is something to be avoided.

So on the Known software documentation there's no information telling how to connect to social media, only a pitch to subscribe to Convoy, their paid service, apparently, to let you hook up with your social media accounts and not worry further.

I understand and appreciate the service, but if you're going to open-source the software, at least tell me how to go the unpaid route on my own.

Otherwise, it seems to be working well. So how important is this to me? Other than giving me the feeling of being #peeved?

How about a homemade taco salad mix for supper? It smells good ...

(So is this considered cultural appropriation now? I'll ponder it while enjoying the dish.)

Sim, antigamente eu usava, mas queria simplificar ao máximo possível. Resolvi dispensar com as categorias.

Successfully installed #Known software at randal.us. Might even keep it. Wish #Hubzilla were that easy. I'd prefer it. If somebody out there were hosting/maintaining, I might even be able to dredge up a bit of dough.
