What is the current maximum video / movie upload file size for Spoutible?
I just did a screen capture of an 8 min news story with family member and AL IVF, and I need a target file size before I start trying to compress/upload it.
@Cbouzy announced higher file size but I can't find the number.

making and mailing postcards to voters is the best.
I hope some of these cards are preserved and put on display someday in the American History Museum to document what grassroots action did to preserve America’s democracy during th MAGA scourge.

The recent #PostcardsToVoters campaign I worked on had an easy-to-write message to Dems in #CA27 (Let’s flip blue!)

bc Life is Life-ing I had to return addresses. I gave back 1 of 3 lists I’d ordered. While writing on list 2 in hospital lobby, got a text “already reassigned”—it’s a group effort!☺️

It's not enough that I'm dealing w/ 2 brothers w/ two serious diagnoses, then find out my cousinling is caught up in the Alabama IVF maelstrom.
Nope, more is required from righteous people on Spoutible who reply with demands that I disclose cousinling's voting history & intentions

My cousin's daughter is caught in AL IVF maelstrom; she's speaking out. (There's also a Scripps News interview)

“I don't think legislators & lawmakers need to be making medical decisions for women and hopeful families. My message to the people who have let this happen is: you are not a doctor.”

Oof. I am in the unhappy position of needing to get up to speed on the notion of "admitted insurance co" and "non-admitted insurance co"

Anyone in California have recent experience getting homeowner's insurance for condo/townhouse? I need in-state leads, admittedly.

Had a long talk Yday w friend of many decades, she told me that in midst of my family caretaking I need to go to some place where I can set aside the “what do I need to do next” set of acts and thoughts about long ToDo list…and just be, to make time space to Feel My Own Feelings About It All.

Finally caught up with all the snail mail that arrived while I was near hospital-land w one of my sibs.
When there are four open seats—
US Congress #CA31
CA state assembly #AD41 ,
CA state senate #SD25 ,
oh, and US Senate #CASen
the direct mail volume is huge— 1+ inch over 2 weeks #CaliforniaPrimary

I harvested my lunch! #gardening
When you say to yourself in December, I want to eat (even) more salads— how do you make that lifestyle change? Sow seeds. This is not instant change but lasting change.

Cut and come again harvesting to cut outer leaves of lettuces is now becoming my go-to method.

And if you have time to help with the get out the vote effort in Florida, #PostcardsToVoters has a rolling effort to remind voters when their option to vote by mail needs to be re-requested. Yep. Re-requested. You read that correctly. Voter suppression is real in Florida.

I know no one really care because Florida is just a punchline you're relatives relocate to but we have an exceptional candidate for US Senate running against a lifelong criminal (Rick Scott). If you care about the country, you should consider supporting her in any way you can.

and most likely the largest to a medical school. The fortune came from her late husband, David Gottesman, known as Sandy, who was a protégé of Warren Buffett and had made an early investment in Berkshire Hathaway, the conglomerate Mr. Buffett built.

The 93-year-old widow of a Wall Street financier has donated $1 billion to a Bronx medical school, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, with instructions that the gift be used to cover tuition for all students going forward.

Ruth Gottesman widow of a top Warren Buffett investor, has donated $1 billion to Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx. It will cover tuition for all future students. The gift is the largest ever to a US medical school.

Get you to TikTok and search for

Albert Einstein medical school

I’m stunned and gladdened and amazed and so glad for the students there now and for the future students of that institution.

Respect, Dr. Ruth Gottesman, respect!

#DailyPictureTheme
Got a partial collection of wrist bands from the hospital where oldest bro is— a different color each day.
This is #WorryCrafting : do I try to #weave them or do something else? (The stickers w my face are stuck in my calendar)
Do I keep up this wristband craft farce or toss em?

Same thing today, Monday.
Compose and post a heavy update, then send it out in email to extended family, feel a sense of relief even as I know that a heavy burden is being absorbed. And shared.

Seriously, either one of these emails — Friday's or today's — would be heavy enough alone. But the combo!
Susan A. Kitchens @susan
oh, that moment after sending an email to extended family bringing them up to date on 1 of 2 sibling’s medical situation.

Me? I feel relief. They? When they get the email, they will feel the burden.

Will be refamiliarizing myself with CaringBridge next.

These are long days, long days.

#DailyPictureTheme The last 2 weeks, I increased walking amount when I went to be at a family house to help out, incl walk the dogs.
New thing I #learn from this— It doesn't take many days of higher pace count for me to feel more capable of walking uphill in the San Gabriel Foothills. Just 10 days!
