WHOA! Apparently somebody put up a cell tower since we were camped here last! The cell signal is WAY faster than at home! WHEEEEEEE!!!

A busy day yesterday, just because I could :). Lots of keyboard (music) time and lots of cooking - things I love to do when I can! Not much keyboard (laptop) time, which is how it goes on such days right? A good Monday!

This holiday season, if you're going to buy friends and family presents, consider skipping Amazon and supporting some of your friendly, independent fedi artists instead!

Grab a beautiful calendar from @sylvia_ritter , a sublime in drawing print from @lila_bliblu an absurdist cult membership from @onan or one of thousands of great pieces of art from tags like #fediart or #mastoart.

Artists (of all descriptions) please post links to where people can buy your stuff in a reply!

Please boost!

#GospelToday (Mk 10:35-45)
Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him and said to him, "Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you."

He replied, "What do you wish [me] to do for you?"

They answered him, "Grant that in your glory we may sit one at your right and the other at your left."

Jesus said to them, "You do not know what you are asking. Can you drink the cup that I drink or be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?"

They said to him, "We can." Jesus said to them, "The cup that I drink, you will drink, and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized; but to sit at my right or at my left is not mine to give but is for those for whom it has been prepared."

When the ten heard this, they became indignant at James and John.

Jesus summoned them and said to them, "You know that those who are recognized as rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones make their authority over them felt. But it shall not be so among you. Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant; whoever wishes to be first among you will be the slave of all. For the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many."

There are 2 company's that enjoy keeping an eye on you and your home/property from the sky and street, Google and Apple.

Same for apple maps basically.

Its a safety thing also to do it.

Takes few days for the request to happen.

Aaaaand it is the 17th! I went to sleep at 10:30 last night - about 4-5 hours before my usual time - and was awake before dawn. As it started to get light outside there were a BUNCH (more than our usual 5) of deer eating in the yard. One looked so big in the pre-dawn light that I thought it was a horse! But it isn't, now that I can make out the shapes a little better. And I learned that binoculars don't help when it's that dark outside :). A new day, I think I'll be at my keyboard playing some worship music shortly, Pete just went over to junior (the travel trailer that, when we're not traveling, he uses as his ham shack - N8HIS) to join the morning coffee net that he participates in every morning. I love new days!

I obsess about how I used to be, before my stroke on Oct. 16, 2008, and grieve for that person I was before. I don't like how it left me...just can't stop thinking and comparing and hating it.
