Lots of face-to-face workshops this week. The stupid thing that ate a lot of time this week was a strict setting on Maria DB which we thought was fixed but for some reason didn’t stick (evaporating fixes are the worst because you think that thing is done and not something to look at again).

Some of the shots are from walking from our building to the medical campus down Broad Street. That is always full of interesting things and people. A big chunk came from going to Field Day of the Past which is something like a carnival mixed with a historical site crossed with a swap meet. It brings any number of societal issues to the forefront via giant flags. I hate being at carnivals but like taking pictures at them.I also contain other contradictions. Stop hassling me. The insect macros are courtesy of some succulent that brings all the bees to the yard.That’s right. It’s better than yours. (I like that she’s a chef now.)
