I spouted something in bad taste this morning. It’s been deleted.

I’ve learned so much from this group and realize there’s so much more to be gotten.

I screwed up. Acknowledging, apologizing and learning from it.

Very good advice right here.

For anyone who mainly reads spouts instead of spouting, my first spout was a photo of broccoli and now I run a banned book club, so take the leap if you want to and who knows where it will lead.

Why are only 2128 people following The Salt Lake Tribune? They are one of the most active outlets on Spoutible. Show them some love for sticking with us for all these months.
The Salt Lake Tribune @sltrib
100 years of Utah movie history is being commemorated by an exhibition with the theme “Utah. America’s Film Set.” The exhibit will run through Dec. 31 on the fourth floor of the Utah Capitol in Salt Lake City. #FilmUtah

“Icky Thump” / The White Stripes

White Americans, what?
Nothing better to do
Why don’t you kick yourself out
You’re an immigrant, too
Who’s using who?
What should we do?
Well, you can’t be a pimp
And a prostitute, too

For years, I had a mostly female staff while managing very technical and regulated departments.

I’d get a question that I’d already heard discussed. My reply often would be “what did Becky tell you?” or “did you already ask Lisa this question?”

It always pissed me off and the asker was told that.

Honest Answer: whatever is handy

I’ve used business cards, paper clips, receipts, butter knife, a staple, a dollar, a playing card…whatever.

I only need it to mark where I’m at.

I read a news article.
I thought ‘who is that?’ and went to Wikipedia
Read the located page
Clicked on a name within the page
Read that page and clicked on another page
And so on
Had to backtrack a bit to remember what I’d originally searched.

The Wikipedia rabbit hole is deep.

To the best of my knowledge, I’ve never committed plagiarism on anything that mattered.

Irrelevant stuff? Probably.
Sixth Grade ‘report’ on fish. Oh hell yes. Word-for-word straight from Funk & Wagnall.

Don't make me go down the rabbit hole of plagiarism police. I'm retired and should be done with that.

Read first, absorb what’s being said and then ponder whether to reply. In that order.

I share more here than I did over there.

I can scroll past something if it bugs me.

I can try to grow as a person about how I view things.

And have many good laughs at the funny stuff.
Timara (she/her) @timara
We're less than a month away from Spoutible's first birthday. If you've been here since the beginning, how have you grown?

Spoutible isn't just here to build community.

I've learned more and laughed more. How about you?

I am of an age/at a place in life/tired of other people’s shit and am perfectly OK and quite happy with No Drama (real / manufactured / imagined) on a daily basis.
Christopher Bouzy @cbouzy
There are people who want the drama of Twitter, Threads, and Bluesky, but claim they hate trolls. When they say we don't have engagement or it's boring, what they really mean is we don't have the toxic drama. Personally, I like being able to share my thoughts without being called a derogatory name.

I’ve seen them full of cookies and then quickly emptied.

They made wonderful stash containers in my youth.

I wanted to get a new guitar.
Daughter needed a washer & dryer.

The compromise is that I get to name the washer Les Paul and the dryer is named Telecaster w/Maple Fretboard.

She saw Bill Haley & The Comets.

She loved Elvis and cried when he passed.

She let us listen to her British Invasion albums when we were little kids. The Beatles, Dave Clark Five, Herman’s Hermits and so much more.
