The first documented sex between two male humpback whales is just the latest challenge to our presumptions about sexuality

My children Violet & (baby) Arthur & feathered friends at Twin Lakes State Beach, 2/95. The water's really the Pacific Ocean, but Schwan #Lake is right behind us, & its twin "lake" the Santa Cruz Small Craft Harbor a short walk 2 the right. Many beach parties here over the years.

As in @foxtrax1 's quoted spout, here you get your "I Voted" sticker with your mail-in ballot. I haven't put this year's on anything (other than Oswald) yet, but as seen in the 3rd photo, from 2022, I had added that sticker to my "VOTAR" button, & wear an enamel "I Voted" pin my partner gave me.

Do y’all have pictures of your “I voted” sticker? Quote spout here! I remember once when I was working a polling station, we ran out of English, they were either English or Spanish then. Boy were people mad!! Now that we all get mail ballots they come with the ballot.

Sitting-in-their-air-conditioned-room/lives Florida Republican lawmakers try to push through an outdoor-workers-and-extreme-heat version of Texas Lt. Gov Patrick's early-pandemic statements re that COVID-vulnerable older Americans should be happy to sacrifice themselves to boost the economy.

MAGA/GQP Has a idea they are testing driving in Florida. Make slavery great again

Florida workers would not be able to count on shade breaks or water on hot days under a state proposal to block cities and counties from requiring these life saving heat stress protections.

#LegoWednesday I made this #Lego Pirate Island cake back in 1993 for my daughter Violet's fifth birthday party. The ocean is crumpled aluminum foil sprinkled with blue sugar crystals, and there's a narrow cove/passage all the way through/between the lower/outer cake layers.

Photo one: Back in 2010 when I took this picture of my son & friends I had captioned it "Arthur tries to make a #stern face for the camera as three people sit on his lap".

Foto zwei: Ich habe diesen #Stern Stuhlbezug vor drei Jahren aus einer alten Jacke gemacht.

I didn't do the neatest #weave job on this peach pie's lattice top crust back on 6/29/2013, but yeah, still delicious.🥰🍑🥧 Usually I make pies with a plain, crumb, or no top crust, but I've done a few lattice, even using berry juice to color alternating strips.

Nice to get this Vox article in my Spoutible news feed this morning, after seeing this (introduced as "If I'm gonna die on a train, it's gonna be a Soul Train!") musical number in a Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur episode I saw with my daughter last night: https://www.youtube.com/wa...

Today's lessons make a 3100-day-streak of using #Duolingo to help me #learn Spanish. I also started a community college Spanish 2 class 1/29, which is helpful for making more sense of some grammar issues that just weren't clicking for me in Duolingo's more immersive environment.

6/5/2012 - My ex-NASA neighbor holds his binoculars on top of his head to project an image of the transit of Venus onto a piece of paper, which unfortunately isn't very visible in this photo, but the #waste & recycling & greenwaste bins along the side of the house definitely are.

#FlowersOnFriday or should it be #FoodAndFlowersOnFriday or #FlowersAndFoodOnFriday … and for that matter I had made and photographed this #SpoutibleBakes hot apple-cinnamon-cranberry tiara cake on this last Monday, and the flowers are from the previous Wednesday, which was Valentine's Day. 🥰🍎💐

10/7/20, my 1st time voting by mail! I sent the County Clerk my concerns re what signature source/vintage they'd be matching mine against, & got a reassuring reply including that they'd contact me with any questions, & could #cure (that's what it's called) my signature if needed.

During my early-pandemic early-morning walks I photographed among other things all the kinds of graduate-celebrating signs I saw. The main thing I know about Mission #Hill (besides where it is) is that when two young people I knew were students there they called it "Prison Hill".

I just saw that it's John Lewis's birthday, so here's a second DPT dose from me today, revisiting the 5/6/22 dedication celebration for UCSC's John R. Lewis College to see/hear LaTosha Brown give the tail end of her keynote speech & #sing a bit of "Keep Your Eyes on the Prize".❤️

#LegoWednesday My children Arthur & Violet play with the "Fright Knights Castle" they built out of Lego, wooden blocks, & Brio train tracks, 12/8/1997. This castle stayed up in the living room like this for a month & a half. Fright Knights was a 1997-1998 Lego supernatural medieval castle theme.

Even their readers who aren't the biggest Biden fans agree that age isn't the point here. It'd be nice if the NYT would run something like this (& take it to heart) instead of kissing up to Tr*mpers in diners & acting like Tr*mp is a normal candidate rather than a huge threat to democracy etc.

Occasionally I photograph things outside on top of a #mirror (that I otherwise use to serve bread), to make it look like they're floating in air. Here we see a bracelet I made with WordPress buttons on top of a backyard sunflower, & my #IReadBannedBooks bracelet before it broke.

Yay! In addition to the national and state contests on the ballot, I have multiple friends (who are also excellent candidates) running for local offices. Some I was very happy to be able to vote for, but others are running in neighboring districts, so I could donate and wear buttons but not vote.

It’s the fury ignited when “know your place” is met with “This IS my place.”

The rage of mediocrity when faced with excellence.

The pearl clutching when dignity refuses to truck with nonsense.

Not everyone will understand this but let me say, Fani Willis vividly displays the awesome and scary ‘potential’ that sparks at the core of racism against blacks.

It is our ‘potential’ that others have often feared and sought to oppress. She is an equal among those who see themselves as kings.

Happy #ValentinesDay ! Or, my local community college is having a "Love Day" celebration, & I saw at least one "Heart Day" item at CVS on Saturday. Here's the hot-out-of-the-oven lemon-raspberry tart I just #SpoutibleBakes , which somehow looks a lot like the lemon-cranberry tart I made 2/14/2023.🥰

Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to remind everyone that a vote is not a valentine, you aren’t confessing your love for the candidate. It’s a chess move for the world you want to live in.

I got my daughter Violet this sailboats (with an occasional red #anchor between them) bedspread when she was around 4 & very into the Swallows and Amazons books. Here she is with her little brother Arthur (& a 6'-long plush orca/killer whale behind them) in late '94 or early '95.

Sheesh, so I got the cutting-a-pool-noodle-with-a-knife ad multiple times, but now things are getting even weirder … I suppose the next one will be like this plus with the noodle and the sprayer ejaculating on each other as the water boils and the finger twitches.
