We to check out The Great Tapestry of #Scotland. Some real talent and creativity along with a bit of history. Great fun to misinterpret the images and make your own stories.
Posted 1 photo: One of three new vegan recipes books purchases today and the one I’m most excited about.. “The Scottish Vegan Cookbook” by Jackie Jones.. very much looking forward to trying many of the recipes.
Obviously challenging to sell #vegan pies here in the Borders. I'm not even sure I like scotch pies. Just bought them on principal.
«How to Build a Low-tech Solar Panel?
George Cove, a forgotten solar power pioneer, may have built a highly efficient photovoltaic panel 40 years before Bell Labs engineers invented silicon cells. If proven to work, his design could lead to less complex and more sustainable solar panels.»
Made a couple of upgrades this week: a new saddle and handlebar grips.
The saddle is wayyy more comfortable than the stock saddle I was riding previously. No more daily punishment for my sit bones.
Riser bars still feel uncomfortable on longer rides; not enough hand positions for my liking. I'll probably switch to drops in the coming months.
I love riding my bicycle.
wow thanks to tvtropes i just learned mr. rogers is the reason recording TV on like a DVR or VCR or whatever isn't illegal
"In a case that made it all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1984, the TV and movie industries sued manufactures of VCRs on the grounds that recording their programming was copyright infringement. Enter Fred Rogers, who testified on behalf of home recording, saying he didn't mind if people recorded his shows and that it was a very good thing for families to be able to watch programs together whenever they wanted to, rather than being controlled by an arbitrary network. The court specifically cited his testimony in their decision. So in other words if you like not being tied down to Appointment Television, you can thank Mr. Rogers."
I have one of the most advanced prosthetic arms in the world — and I hate it

#OtD 14 Sep 1911 1,000s of schoolchildren in Dundee, Scotland walked out of lessons demanding more holidays and less corporal punishment. Marching armed with sticks and stones, they pulled other children out and attacked schools which were still open. https://libcom.org/history/childrens-strikes-1911
Zero effort lettuce faring better than expected.
Bought from the supermarket, ate all the leaves, clumsily buried the roots of what was left, did nothing.
I thought they’d all die but might as well give them a go because they’d just get thrown out anyway.
But so far all except one, which got pulled up by a bird or cat, are alive and growing.
