The scene I've seen in a long time.
And notice, there's not a single cat there.

This is/was my [personal blog]( I'm sharing this link because it will disapear soon because, acording to the host service they are updating their servers to a a new system image, which is incompatible with the version of Python (3.8), and Django (?) I used to write it.
I have no time, nor desire to update it, because [mcBlog was built to]( "make it a good choice for a school class or a university department, for example. One blog administrator can easily create as many independent accounts as needed. Posts are saved as drafts before being published, which gives their authors (pupils, lecturers, others) the opportunity to ask the blog admin (teacher, professor, other) to review them before publishing". (As you may have noticed if you opened the link above, the posts are backed up on rentry.)
However, it didn't catch the interest of those who decide, i.e. they decided for a paid service instead of a [free account]( (I hope, and wish open source is not dying.)
If/when I get the spare time to create another blog I will use Julia's frameworks [Franklin]( or [Toolips](

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck is published #OTD in 1937.

The novella has been banned from various US public and school libraries or curricula for allegedly "promoting euthanasia", "condoning racial slurs", being "anti-business", containing profanity, and generally containing "vulgar," "offensive language," and containing racial stereotypes, as well as the negative impact of these stereotypes on students. Many of the bans and restrictions have been lifted. via @wikipedia
