One of our neighborhood woodpeckers came to visit this morning. We've seen it once or twice this year, but this was the first time we've seen it stop to eat.

Donations needed to help the poor cat we had living on our patio. She was sick when she showed up at our house a few months ago, and seems to have only gotten worse. We found a rescue to take her, and they are exhausting a lot of their funds trying to make sure she is brought back to good health. Please help if you are so inclined.

I can't help but wonder when the Starbucks app thinks water would be "in season".

This seems like a weird coincidence. I assume I missed something in the news about spreading gossip? /cc @waldoj @Meyerweb

I want to wish everyone that celebrates it a very merry Christmas. Hope you have a wonderful year.

Thanks to whomever is my community secret elf. I'm definitely going to put these heat-resistant gloves to good use when cooking.

I still don't quite understand why my church has the TARDIS on the altar, but I'm okay with it (yes, I'm aware it's not really the TARDIS, but it sure does look like it from a distance).

Stolen from Facebook. It appears that it was originally created by an artist named Adam Hastings.

I heard a rumour that the latest version of allows you to follow hashtags from directly within the app, now, but I haven't figured out how to do that yet. As soon as I do, will be the first one I follow.

And, since I used the hashtag, I'll add a cute photo of Mama Sox getting her belly rubbed.

Nemo is very pleased with himself after knocking over the small Christmas tree yet again.

We have acquired an extra outdoor cat, and are looking for someone to take it off our hands. It's very friendly (almost aggressively so), and needs someone to love it and care for it.

It's a very pretty tuxedo cat. With as affectionate as it is, we assume it must have been someone's pet at some point, but they must have abandoned it a while ago.

If you're interested, let us know. We've contacted a few rescues, but they're all over capacity (or they've shuttered).

If you drive a car that uses gasoline, and you have a Sheetz anywhere near you, you should fill up with E88 this week. It's on sale for $1.999/gallon until Nov. 28.

What a terrible way to word a poll question. They don't tell you what "the alternative" is. Is it "Republicans gaining a strong majority" or "Democrats holding a slim majority"?
