Hivemind assistance?Kansas resources needed

Hivemind assistance?Kansas resources needed

Hiya GT, something crossed my Twitter timeline last night, which made me think of y’all, and wonder if any of you awesome folks know of any supports in Kansas for trans women who are dealing with a series of MH and physical-world difficulties.

The woman in need of assistance is in the process of applying for disability, but currently unemployed, having issues accessing her needed meds (Kansas...

Debunking the "Ilhan Omar's district is a Hotbed of terrorism recruitment!!!" narrative

Debunking the "Ilhan Omar's district is a Hotbed of terrorism recruitment!!!" narrative

I know there was talk since shortly after Ilhan was elected, but there seems to be an onslaught lately—from multiple corners—of folks latching on to a narrative that Rep Omar’s congressional district (#MN05) being some sort of “Hotbed of Terrorism Recruitment!!!” With very little attribution/ perhaps a fleeting mention of “a report from her local newspaper”(the Star Tribune, or “The STrib”,...

Blizzard/Miracle Treat Day at DQ

Blizzard/Miracle Treat Day at DQ

Hiya GT!

For those of you who like DQ, and like Blizzards, but need a good reason to go get one—TODAY IS YOUR DAY!

Today is “Miracle Treat Day,” which means that $1.00 from each Blizzard sold goes to Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) hospitals.

For us here in MN, that means the local DQ’s are raising money for Gilette Children’s Hospital over in St. Paul. The hospitals other states’ DQs are...

In line with the Etiquette post:What advice do you wish you could make universally known?

Violet’s etiquette post made me think of some advice I *wish* I could just tell every single parent of preschoolers everywhere.

So in the spirit of unsolicited, but truly USEFUL advice, what is something YOU wish you could made widely/universally known, GT?

Which thing(s) perhaps make you absolutely batty, because you see the same thing happening over & over again, and too many folks simply...

MOAR DIVERSE COURTS!!! (at least here in MN today--wootwoot!)

MOAR DIVERSE COURTS!!! (at least here in MN today--wootwoot!)

Some of you ‘round here already know that I both like, AND voted for Mark Dayton as governor of MN—both times he ran (and I voted for him when he was running for senate, too).

Dude IS a bit (more than bit?) of a goofball, and he has a REALLY difficult time giving a good speech most of the time. But, he does “him”, and he’s always been pretty upfront & honest about things—ESPECIALLY for a...

Hivemind medication question

Hivemind medication question

Hi all, I have a medication question for anyone who’s taken Adderall or Adderall XR

I’m on it right now, for my ADHD (10mg, I think the lowest dose possible), and lately have been having—for me—LOTS of difficulty getting to sleep.

Has anyone else taken Adderall/Adderall XR, and had similar issues with not being able to get to sleep and/or being just “spacey” concentration-wise & unable to focus...

Hiya GT!

It’s been a while since we celebrated some good stuff, so what’cha got?

Big things, small ones, itty-bitty teeny-tiny ones, bring ‘em, and let’s celebrate some good!

If you want to share many things, that’s cool, or just one, that’s cool too.

You do you, and celebrate good, however *you* want to celebrate it!

Kavanaugh Judicial committee hearings

Kavanaugh Judicial committee hearings

Anyone else listening/watching?

The first hour+ has been an absolute zoo.

So much unprecedented stuff going on, and a hearing unlike anything I’ve EVER heard for a USSC seat.

This is NOT normal, and it’s extremely worrisome, as someone who’s geek enough to have listened to quite a few Judicial Committee hearings:

Rancorous, partisan start for Kavanaugh high court hearing
