I've added a donation link to the Ariane homepage. We're comfortable with what we have so don't donate if you can't afford to, but if you can and use Ariane frequently it'll help justify the amount of time I spend developing it: cash.app/%C2%A3oppenlab

Had a few donations recently for Ariane and Öppen output in general - if it was anyone here on fedi thank you very much, money is always helpful of course but it's the act more than the amount means a lot to me.

Your important reminder of the day:

She _should_ be okay for a while yet, vets given us some anti-inflammatory meds, we'll see if she bounces back. Unfortunately we know from experience how quickly old dogs go downhill when they do go. Anyway, we've had some tail wags...

There's something incredibly... wonderful about writing a person an email after you've read their gemlog which you randomly stumbled over. And if they answer and you actually end up having a real conversation. This. This is peak internet.

Here she is in happier times when her partner in crime was still with us

She's got a bit more life now, maybe not ready for the urn just yet. Something's up with a couple of her paws so she might just be avoiding putting any weight on them. Vets booked later on tonight.

Give your dogs a hug. Wilma's not moved off the couch since last night and is looking very old.

The Rollright Stones again, this was the best photo I got

The whole places reeks of privilege, you can see it in how they dress, the cars they drive, you overhear people talking in the towns - the accent is thick with entitlement. So yeah, superficially beautiful, but inhabited by people who probably inherited their money from the slave trade and the empire.

We're visiting the other in-laws this weekend who live in Stratford-on-Avon, the buildings here are lovely, they escaped getting levelled in WW2 and the climate means they age really slowly, there's thatched roofed cottages everywhere. Up north with the hills it's wet, everything rots and falls apart much more quickly and Manchester and surrounding areas got hit hard in the blitz.

The Rollright stones, Oxfordshire & Warwickshire border, also known as 'The King's Men', the stones are very weathered oolitic limestone and would have looked very different when originally erected.
