For my current set of tips, I've decided to use the one I wrote based on how to make your hometown more like Bluehill in Terramagne-America. I took a close look at the town's positive features with an eye toward replicating them here with local resources.

* Survival resources. While the aim is for everyone to have a job, even in T-America is doesn't always work out that way. So they have a generous assortment of social services, some governmental, but most nonprofit or religious. Those places work together and try to create a network robust enough to catch people when they fall. They even have a public bathhouse. Pick any charity you like and support it, or find an unmet need and start something new. Giveboxes are barely harder to start than Little Free Libraries, and a good step up if you already have LFLs.

 I saw a northern flicker in the forest garden near the hopper feeder today.  :D

This poem came out of the September 3, 2019 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by discussions with [personal profile] dialecticdreamer and [personal profile] we_are_spc. It also fills the "mixed media" square in my 9-1-19 card for the Arts and Crafts Festival Bingo. This poem has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Finn Family thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

Warning: Do not read with mouth full.

Today was mild and partly sunny.  I went out twice, planting 5 narcissus bulbs each time.  I saw several cardinals at the birdfeeders.  In the evening, it sprinkled rain briefly, just enough to dampen the ground.
