So, do I pull weeds in the garden or grab my bicycle, ride in the cooler morning air and then test drive my new kayak on this beautiful creek? Now that I’ve put it into a sentence, surely seems obvious what the answer will be. Pics later and they won’t be of garden weeds...

On this day 61 years ago (July 5th 1958) the world welcomed one of the most talented and inspiring cartoonists the world has ever known. Happy Birthday Bill Watterson! 🎉🐯👦🏼 t.co/jQLmNm1JCY

This is my as a lanky teen who has since grown into his ears and filled out splendidly. The scratchy, insistent voice hasn't changed, though.

'The end of the Birnbeck Tea Garden'

Several tons of scalpings have been deposited against the end wall of the burned-out Tea Garden building. You walk over these stones now as part of the footpath down to the shoreline - which I'm stood on.
In the middle of the photo you can clearly see the tidal front on it's way into Clevedon Bay and the mud-flat it is covering.
📷 👍 😎

Earth is lucky. Not all planets have a moon to keep them company as they travel through space! Think about that while enjoying tonight’s #supermoon, the last one until 2020: blogs.nasa.gov/Watch_the_Skies

Other than quick flying Cardinals and Blue Jays, these fungi were the most colorful on the first day of Spring along my favorite bike trail.

Mastodon.host

What sets mastodon.host appart?

As a general instance, we are not centered on a specific theme, or a specific language. Everyone is welcome as long as they follow the few rules we have.

We always run the latest stable version of Mastodon, providing you a stock experience, with the following modifications:

  • 2048 character limit (not 500).
  • 512 character limits for the account's bio (not 160).
  • full column width (not fixed size).
  • more search results (20 instead of 5 per type of search).
  • Audio upload (not limited to videos only).
  • full text search of statuses (not restricted to searching tags and users).
  • trending tags are displayed on the main UI ( and a more complete view is available here)
  • boosts and replies are shown in the timelines (more complete view for everyone).
  • Your mastodon.host account is also a XMPP account (Federated Instant Messaging, take a look online to find a client and use your mastodon.host username and password to configure it, you can also use our online web client). Woohoo! two services in one!
  • We also have a very good view of the federation (our federated timeline gives you a more broad view of the Mastodon network than a 'normal' instance, there's a lot to read in a lot of languages).
  • We also host a Peertube instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • In the same vein, we host a Funkwhale instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • If you want to be on a more quiet, moderated instance, or use another AP implementation, we host a Pleroma instance for the convenience. This is the same fediverse as with Mastodon, but with a different default UI and way more optimized backend. Try and see which one you prefer !
  • Now if you want a different UI, the stock mastodon one does not please you, you can check Pinafore.
  • We do also host for the convenience a video Conference server ( Jitsi Meet )
  • We have a mastodon relay for other instances to bootstrap their timelines: https://relay.mastodon.host

Although we are a medium+ sized instance, we'd like to keep the feeling that you are at home and safe here.
