Any recommendations for non-profits to donate hair? Male, some gray. I see most places start accepting at 8-12 inches. I'm at 8-ish. I don't mind going to the scalp if that gets more hair. Right now I'm leaning towards "hair we share"

Day 4 #NightOwlFitness extra late edition... 

Day 2 of Foundation workout. These arm exercises looked easy but now my arms are sore and I feel foolishly weak.

Well Day 3 of is now Day 1 of Foundations. Starting small so I'm doing level 1. Join along if you are interested. I got this plan from Darebee. There is also an even easier one called Foundation Lite if you need. darebee.com/programs/foundatio

You know your parent brain needs more sleep when it's creating mashups of the theme song "I'm Grown" from GROWN•ish and Elmo's World.

A United Methodist Lament 

Today is a sad day to be a United Methodist. But however sad it is for me I know it is and has been worse for the LGBTQIA community. I'm sorry that I have not done more to make the UMC not just a safe place but a place that fully embraces who you are. Forgive me.

I'm going melt my face in some Chocolate Trinity ice cream.

UM anxiety 

Any UM people getting a little anxiety about this weekend?

Anyone using the Monk Manual? I'm only on the first week. I'm enjoying it but I'm having a hard time doing it for weekends or days off. That time is valuable so I know its just as beneficial if not more so since its I probably waste the most time.

Man I cannot keep up with Twitter and Mastodon. Great conversations happening on both!

church life/death Rant 

Feeling defeated. Although there is a plan in place for some of the support programs to continue in diminished capacity it means the pastor who has fostered this church to be a servant first may have to leave. I feel terrible for their family and the community of people who work and support this church (including myself) finding a place as active, encouraging and open to all people.

church life/death Rant 

Our property is a small but 100% debt free but aging so it has some costs. It's rare to find a church focused outward & with such heart for the immediate community. The people who come are similar to the people I find here and it hurts for many of them see such a good example of what church should look like die because we haven't done the typical church thing (focus on Sunday, worship, sanctuary, expensive kids programs, giving campaign for new buildings.)

church life/death Rant 

In the spirit of being real and vulnerable we just found out our church has about 14 months left if things continue as they are. We live in a low income area of Orlando. It's a church 100% focused on and committed to the community it's planted in: open food garden, food pantry, open pot luck, immigration support, homeless support and public school computer lab, at cost winter and summer camps for working parents.

@brettdh I know. I’m dead about it. Just bawling. I can NOT believe we did this!!!

Anyone have enviromentially safe ideas and tips for getting rid of paints and chemicals?

Best product ever made. I regret nothing. I've owned for over 6 years still looks and works new and if it died immediately following this toot I'd buy it again full price before my tears we're dry. Where my tea drinkers at?

Anyone figure out how to get mastalab to push notifications? And everytime I refresh the home timeline it's always 40 notifications. Is that a hard limit?
