Spaces & Places

Welcome to the Wednesday Coffee Hour here on Street Prophets. This is an open thread where we can talk about what’s going on in our worlds.

Everyone is welcome to discuss all topics of conversation and to post photos.

Pull up a seat and share!

Fewer poor cancer patients referred for drug trials.

"Asperger's disorder" is being dropped. And abnormally bad and frequent temper tantrums will be given a scientific-sounding diagnosis called DMDD.

A new Jamaican Butterfly species has been discovered.

Did you know that the Old Farmer's Almanac long-range weather forecasts are traditionally 80 percent–accurate? Here is a prediction: The temperatures will be much colder this winter from the East Coast westward to a line from the Dakotas to Texas.

After reading their highlighted predictions, I really think there may be something to this global warming-climate change thing.

Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.

Recently I attended a Kossak event in the Portland, Oregon area where I met Street Prophets Group Member Mortifyd:

Portland Meet Up 049

Mortifyd and I strolled around the neigborhood and took some photos. We discovered that we have many things in common. We both love old Craftsman style homes, older neighborhoods, classic cars and trucks!

Hope that you enjoyed the photos!

We are hoping to schedule more events in Oregon and would love to meet you all.

The next event will most likely be in January after the holidays.

So, how are you?

How's the weather?

Ready for the holidays?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
