@chrislatray @daily_montanan Truly, truly sucks. 😠 @amandafortini spot on. @KBabstock They remind me of my Ottawa childhood. An apple peel in a bag of brown sugar prevents it from going rock hard. @KBabstock Peanut butter? @HubbardJeff This is such a great film. Saw it a while ago and it has stayed with me. @HubbardJeff Truly so. Unfathomable. And the fallout will be seen and felt for a long time to come. @HubbardJeff In a ghoulish way, looking at the UK might cheer you up? It’s horrendous here. 😢 @graciepeng @quiarahudes @WmCollinsBooks @EmmaPidsley @HarperInsider @IndieThinking That’s lovely.

@sonjayelich1 Oh, my. Those ears! 🐇Today’s walk. Keddlestone Street, E2. #ivy #graffiti #streetart #eastlondon #BethnalGreen https://t.co/BnXP9dra4Z @_pjfinn Depth of field. Literally. @jr_carpenter I think we owe it to the spirit of synchronicity to mention birds in our respective classes! 🕊🦅🦜🦆🦢 @jr_carpenter We are teaching on the same day, but on different continents. No chickadees here, but I may mention blue tits and parakeets. @calflyn I am so glad to have come upon your book. Will order it now. Looks so good! @BoMandeville @calflyn That looks wonderful. @drewgum @shelfabsorption Oh, man. That’s beautiful.

@AndreaMurphy12 Gorgeous. @AndreaMurphy12 Yes! These particular samples of 'everyday' are very fresh. @jadeAfitton @emmarault Especially in East London. It’s relentless. @jadeAfitton Sadly, yes.
