...this is an open thread. Nothing is off topic.
The SFKossacks gathered in Berkeley to meet BeadLady who drove 50 miles to hand-off the Daily Kos Quilt Quild's hand crafted creation to me. The DK Quilt Guild held an online auction this spring to benefit Okiciyap, a food bank on the Cheyenne River reservation in South Dakota. The DK Quilt Guild raised over $11,000 for Okiciyap. The winning bid team of the quilt decided to give the quilt to Okiciyap and dedicate it to the founder, Georgia Little Shield, who suddenly passed last year. I'm going to fly that quilt to South Dakota and deliver it to the Okiciyap Food Pantry during their annual powwow next week. The quilt is really beautiful and we all got to hold it in our hands.

If you click on the thumbnails you will see a description of all the people in the photo:
side pocket brought massive tomato bounty from his garden. I said, "We need some Kossacks with these two sacks of tomatoes." And so Glen the Plumber and side pocket posed with them. We all took home a big bunch of tomatoes!

Let's build communities!
Every region needs a meatspace community like SFKossacks.
We take care of each other in real life.
I urge YOU to take the lead and organize one in your region.
Please tell us about it if you do and we're here for advice.
THINK GLOBALLY, ACT LOCALLY
