Notes for today:

Freecycle works really well.

Alternating stacks of work with sorting stacks of clutter results in skimming blogs and websites. Stop that.

Asking a question in a mailing list is surprisingly harder than asking the same question at a party.

The new season of Doctor Who is, indeed, excellent. (note from yesterday)

Freecycle works really well, even if you live on an island?

I would say *especially* if you live on an island, or any other isolated or remote community.

For one thing, there isn't a flood of posts to wade through. For another, people are pretty good about describing objects accurately and reliably coming by to pick them up - while it's not literally true that everyone knows everyone else, it's easy to see that word gets around if problems come up.

I was on the Seattle freecycle list for a while, helping someone else pass on gardening excess. We were not successful, and I signed off as soon as I could.
