I was in bed with Beloved yesterday, both of us on laptops, he doing Important Actual Writer Stuff and me selecting fic challenges for next month and looking at Tweetdeck. He glanced over at my Tweetdeck and commented:

Him: You follow a lot of dogs.
Me: It leavens the stress of politics twitter if every third tweet is a doggy tweet.
Him: You could make a doggy list, then when it gets really stressful you could look at a feed that's entirely dogs?
Me, sotto voce: Why the hell didn't I think of that?

Anyway, as a result of that conversation I hereby present:

Jennie's list of wholesome doggy twitter accounts.

It is quite sighthound-heavy right now because that's kind of my jam, but do feel free to suggest additions to it :)

Some people have digestive issues when they exercise. This study reveals that dietary changes can relieve that. It also suggests why some energy gels cause cramps: they often contain disaccharides and monosaccharides.

If you have not yet seen the show, I highly recommend not spoiling yourself. It's not just that there's twists, it's that the entire show is a process of discovery.

This week, Sarah and Amanda are talking about the book clubs, crafting classes, and reader gatherings Amanda is coordinating, running, or attending, and how much she is enjoying all of them. She has advice for anyone who might be thinking of joining an existing group, or starting their own romance reading group, too! We take a brief detour into discussing mental health, the changing symptoms of depression, and antidepressant medication, and then move on to reader email! Emily is looking for books that inspire self-care, and Kristen is looking for tips on organizing her TBR. And of course, we talk about what we’re reading and enjoying, too.

How do you organize your TBR? What books inspire you to be more kind, gentle, and caring of your fine self? Got a book club or reader gathering to recommend? We’d love to hear from you!

Summoned to Thirteenth Grave

Today’s podcast transcript is sponsored by Summoned to Thirteenth Grave by Darynda Jones. If you like JR Ward or Jeaniene Frost, you’ll love this paranormal romp that tickles not only the funny bone but other parts a little farther down as well.

Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper Extraordinaire, is back after a century of exile. She is hurt. She is angry. And she is out for revenge.

But a century on one plane isn’t quite the same as it is on others, and she comes back to find a furious husband (who can still melt the polar ice caps with a single glance), a world in chaos, and an expanding hell dimension that is taking over our own plane of existence. She has three days to stop an apocalypse (that she may have accidentally started) and to soothe the savage beast that is her blisteringly hot soulmate.

Don’t miss the last book in the series that RT Book Reviews calls “…wickedly funny with true chilling danger…”

Summoned to Thirteenth Grave by Darynda Jones is on sale now wherever books are sold. Find out more at daryndajones.com.

How Flooding Hurts Businesses

 Climate change means more frequent floods, which make it impossible to for customers to reach stores on some days -- and the frequency of those days is going up, which runs down the profit.

Thank you for the Panettone!

One of my lovely fans sent us a panettone.  This is Italian fruitcake: light, sweet bread with bits of real dried fruit, not the candied crud.  :D  It is quite tasty.  We've been slicing it up for desserts.

Hello! this is my first post on this account. I remade my dreamwidth because I couldn't change the username without paying. I usually post fanfiction and stuff but I'm kind of a general artist who isn't really particularly skilled at anything, so.

Here's a wip.

It's of ZEX from Star Control 2

I love space and sci-fi stuff. Especially star trek and (this is sad) star wars.  Also love Lotr!

Anyways if you're curious about any of my fanfic go here. You'll probably notice how much I love DS9 and garashir I also have a DA here- not much is really posted on it yet. You can also find me on twitter @ratnewt. Aaaaand if you really need to contact me somehow, I'm on reddit too, the acc is called "tricksterratgod" I'm not really active there but I do have the app on my phone because I have a close friend who is.

You can call me Ezri or Rat. You can also call me by anything else if you've known me to go by any other name- except for my dead name. 

How, dear captain?
