Pinned toot

Christmas is over, time to prepare for Spring. I’ve got some hyacinths of unknown colours.

Good morning Fedi :blobcoffee:
I’ve heard you like history. Here is the reading for today: bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lond

Microsoft released Editor from Microsoft365 (aka Office) as an add-on to the browser.

I think the Office version works great and is an amazing help at work for someone like me who writes professional documents such as tenders, contracts etc. in non-native language. I’ll be testing the extension tomorrow.

I don’t usually talk about politics here but here we go.

I haven’t done political tests in few years and was interested how my views changed. I’ve answered questions in a very pragmatic way: how I think things work or should work now and here, not how it would work in an ideal world.

I’m quite surprised with today’s results to be honest. I’m not sure if I moved to the right or the centre of our political and social scene has moved to the left leaving me where I am. Maybe I’m just getting older. :ablobthinkingeyes:

Marketing done right. Next time in London, I must get a photo on this commemorative bench for “Afterlife”. It’s located in Queens Park.

Czytałem gorącą debatę panów @copyme , @kmic i @rogatywieszcz na temat języka i doszedłem do wniosku, że chyba na starość zostałem językowym anarchistą. Jakie reguły by nie były, ludzie będą gadać jak im wygodniej. Najważniejsze, aby informacja była czytelna i zrozumiała. ✌🏻

An interesting fact: Citroën logo (the double chevron) is based on the design of metal gears which André Citroën saw in Cegielski factory in Poznań in 1900.

I need to buy a car in near future (I tried to avoid having one, but in my place there is no infrastructure for bikes and public transport almost doesn’t exist).
I’m looking to lease a small electric car. I was doing my research and fell in love with Citroën AMI :ablobaww:

“For millennia, people slept in two shifts – once in the evening, and once in the morning. But why? And how did the habit disappear?”

I’m going to listen to a podcast and probably will fall asleep.

I’ve found a series “The history of gay sex” which is quite interesting. The episodes about history of pornography were good and now I’ll listen about gays in Nazi ranks and sex in the Third Reich.

Food after workout: my own recipe for Mexican-style chicken with veggies and pyzy (type od steamed dumplings).

PS
Waiting for some Poles to tell me that’s not pyzy. 🤣

I’ve done some rowing today. I didn’t have access to a rower for over a year, so I’m not in form at all. My favourite endurance training.

I’ve done some a pyramid intervals which I set to concentrate on pace and rate (not speed or distance). It feels good! :ablobcaramelldansen:
