My son helped me de-carpet the kitchen and basement at the new house instead of sportsing (though EMU's game came on, later).

Sounds like that was a good decision.

We're having a small porch party at the new house tomorrow (Fri) afternoon: 1035 Washtenaw

We'll have some snacks and drinks there, and hang out on the porch. Probably anytime after 3 'til 7-8 or so.

If you're driving, probably need to park on the next street south and cut through the church parking lot.

There'll be other events, but if you can swing by tomorrow, it'd be great to see you

It's amazing how many of America's problems could be solved by paying people a fair wage for fair work.

Which is why we don't do it.

it smells really lovely- a sweet, spicy forest floor smell.

Went and got some actual samples for new flooring for the kitchen. Neither of us expected to arrive at these, but this might be very good

Seems like someone in Japan is rolling out a fleet of bots. I got one here and one on another instance.

"Here’s an idea: When a party wins more votes, but fewer seats, it triggers an automatic nonpartisan remapping."
