I finally have some time to clean out my inbox. I've made my way back to about mid-February of this year, and I'm struck by how I'm much more likely to delete things now which before I would have tucked away in folders.

If Boris is going to be Prime Minister, I may just give the UK a miss for a while.

I can't, but the thought has occurred. Maybe I can sit in Ireland and throw letters across the sea to the family there...I'm sure that will suffice...

If they are Anew, are those thoughts really random?

I would like to meet family in some mutually convenient location. Dublin and Madrid come to mind. It won't be long before Scotland is independent after Boris takes up residence in #10, so Edinburgh will be an option too.

Good question--meaning, I don't know the answer.

Why should you expect to get any milk from nuts?

An interesting tweet recently was one of the hard parts of being vegan was milking the almonds every morning because the teats were so small.

How often do you get notification from Uber about your Uber code? I know it happens every time someone or somebot tries to register with my phone number. Now it is just about every day. Sometimes twice a day. It's on the annoying side.

My reading of any CHE articles has definitely declined since I stopped going to the old forums.

I wonder how the publication is doing.

If you think that is difficult, try to get the oat milk from those oats...

Since it's only been a week, they are probably OK for now.

So that we'll have it later when someone updates their page (if they ever do):

Hello! Does anyone have any suggestions?
So, I tried to straighten everything out and guess what I got for it.  No, really, just guess!

Always wash your hands after using the facilities.

Don't eat the yellow snow.

Check carefully on that left turn in Albuquerque.

I saw a post in my emails that took me aback for a moment. The heading was "Restore Patience and Fortitude."

I first thought it was paradigmatic of something larger in society....then I realized what it referred to.

If you're on the NYPLibrary email list, we're currently being asked to donate to support the library's sculpted lions' repairs.

   https://donate.nypl.org/give/241659/#!/donation/checkout?amount=50&preset1=200&preset2=100&preset3=50&preset4=25&utm_source=eNewsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_content=Friends_20190728_RR_P3&utm_campaign=FRS&c_src=FRQ20RR_QECP3

Their names (which I'd never known) are, indeed Patience and Fortitude...(much more nuanced than "Art" and "Science," which our flanking figures represent).

The campaign, called "Restore the Roar," is still running.

Very random, I know.
