☀️ beat the heat ☀️

💧 drink lots of water (and not too much alcohol)
💧 stay in the shade
💧 close your sun-facing curtains
💧 eat cold food & drinks
💧 ice bucket for your feet
💧 ice in pets' water
💧 look after each other

you can always come into the café to have some food, a cold mocktail, or just to sit and cool off. no need to spend any money!

Another post in my Toilets of series. This one is good. Want a urinal, go left. I haven't have the balls to go right yet. That's a pun.

We used to know how to find stuff on the internet without search (back when search sucked). Then, Google came and made search good. The finding-it-for-ourselves muscles atrophied. Now, Google sucks, selling our results to the highest bidder and giving the rest to SEOs. It's time to learn to find the good stuff ourselves again.

Some impressive spray paint art at today - plus next weekend (25th and 26th) they are hosting an art car boot sale that I'm gonna check out.

If you are pondering on whether to host your own mailserver: please do! I have been running a couple - hosting others as well, and it has been a bliss. Google has the biggest share of MXes - lets break that monopoly and reclaim our inbox :flan_hacker:

Also, feel free to contact me if you wish for help and/or guidance :flan_laugh:
