If you could live in any ideal solarpunk living arrangement, what would it be?

In this episode, @arielkroon talks to Hermina Joldersma, professor emerita at University of Calgary, about alternative housing arrangements, focusing on co-housing. They discuss not only Hermina’s experiences living in different types of housing, but the mindset necessary to co-housing and communal life, and the way that community often has to be intentionally created.

In 1826, David Thompson's clerk, Finan McDonald, left the Columbia in the outgoing Fall Express, and spent his winter at #Edmonton House. For one or two years afterward, the outgoing express men searched for a boat or canoe he had abandoned somewhere along the Athabasca River. They found it eventually, and for twenty years after the place was known as McDonald's Cache. #ABHistory #HistoricJourney #Blogpost

heyo #edmonton peeps. #boostOK

super silly question. what sort of lockers do City rec centres have? I'm assuming I have to bring my own lock? or is it the type of lock that needs a loonie?

so far I've only been able to find out that they have lockers, but not what I need to bring to be able to use them.

#fitness #exercise #yeg

Screengrab of an web page on Change Rooms and Washrooms at rec centres.

« Finish eating and drinking before you enter the change room. Please use the garbage bins provided.
« No glass containers are allowed in the change rooms.
« Remove shoes before entering the change rooms.
« No spitting.
« Physical exercise can create body odour that can be offensive to others. Similarly, excessive amounts of scented hygiene products, perfumes or colognes can trigger allergies in other patrons. Please be considerate of other users when practicing your personal hygiene.
[this part highlighted] Protect your belongings by securing them in a locker. Small lockers are available in the lobby of facilities for your wallet, keys, or jewellery. We recommend that you do not bring any valuables into the facility.
« Please turn off and store cell phones, PDAs, cameras, and other recording devices when using change rooms or washrooms. Taking pictures within change rooms or washrooms is against the law.

Robyn Takes The Train

hi I am, but needed more characters for this one 😁

finally took the new train (the
#ValleyLine in #Edmonton) from end to end.

Here are my observations (the good ones first):
+ we didn't have to wait long for a train. operation seemed very efficient, no incidents or delays.
+ the ride itself feels good. very smooth.
+ I like the interior of the trains. bright and colourful. felt almost like a regional train / Strassenbahn in Germany.
+ tapping on and off with the ARC card worked well.
+ I love that you can see your card balance and transaction history at the ARC machines

Here's what could have gone better:
- the electronic sign boards / arrival boards / whatever those are called were broken at every single stop. seriously. every last one. this thing has been in service for a week, how is this already not working...? and I swear I've seen those on before??
- THE DOOR BEEPS ARE WAY TOO LOUD oh my god. like many others have pointed out, these NEED to be dialled down!! I didn't have my noise cancelling earbuds with me and immediately regretted that. (or wait is that one of those hostile things so people don't sleep on the train? what if I want to take a nap
- would love it if the ARC terminals showed you your balance when you tap o or off (but can see privacy concerns etc with that, so not sure if this has legs). my main concern is, will it notify me if I am running low?
- like others have said, it feels odd to have to wait a couple seconds to tap your card after the next person - it felt like it had to clear the screen first...?
- uhm why is there literally no signage on track level at Churchill for where to go for the new train? or that the Valley Line even exists? we did spot signage on the concourse level, but... seems like a no-brainer to put this at track level as well, especially for tourists, newcomers, etc!?
- [nothing to do with the new train] OF COURSE the escalators were down at Churchill. some things legit just never change

anyways I love that we have this option now, years ago when I was looking for a new apartment I
almost moved to Bonnie Doon, but didn't since it was too far out of the way in terms of my workplace and social life. now this would be no problem with the swanky new train right there!!

#yegtransit #yeg

the escalators at Churchill cordoned off with yellow ETS barricades because of course they're not working. some things never change

A #yegquest update. Big big props to @jfmezei - who despite not living in Edmonton at all, was the first person to post his #yegquest answers! Since I can't quote-toot (one feature, I confess, that I do miss) I will shortly reboost an assortment of his quest answers. I hope that will inspire you those of you who ARE in Edmonton on this glorious weekend to get out there in person and post photos of your own! #yeg #Edmonton #valleyLine

Headed out to #yegquest? Bragging rights to the first person who posts all six correct answers with matching photos. But don't despair. You have until Friday at midnight to finish posting your answers! But mostly, I hope this will be an inspiration to people to get out to explore their city and to enjoy the new Valley Line. (All clues are easy walking distance from Valley Line stations. But not inside the stations, so if you'd rather bike or walk or drive, that works too. #yeg #Edmonton

Why did the chicken cross the road?
Here that answer’s an easy one.
A road without cars is much more fun.
If you’re a hen, or so I’m told.

(Even though she can’t take flight.)

Of pointy glass with mythic powers.

A strath is a valley, broad and wide.

#yegquest #yeg #Edmonton #ValleyLine #yegarts

A chicken, you know, isn’t built for flight.
But in this spot, even Henday finds height.
Up in the air, where her wings won’t reach.
And back in time, with lessons to teach.
Once, this city was linked by rail.
Now we’re back to the future. So let’s not fail.
#yegquest #yeg #Edmonton #ValleyLine #yegheritage #yeghistory #EdmontonTransit

A world of wisdom you’ll find inside.
Where cultures combine and words collide.
Whether this is your start or this is your end.

Henday the free range #yegchick has left a half dozen clues along the length of Valley Line, connecting the #yegdt with Mill Woods. Figure out where Henday has been, take a photo in the same place, and post it here with the #yegquest hashtag. #yeg #Edmonton #Mastoversary #ValleyLine

It's YEGQUEST DAY! At noon MST, I'll drop a half-dozen clues for you to solve. Figure out where Henday was, take a photo in the same spot, tag it #yegquest and have a marvelous time, exploring our new Valley Line South LRT route. (All the clues are easy walking distance from Valley Line stops - but you don't need a ticket, if you'd rather travel by bike, car, or foot.)

The good news? Today, Albertans can start registering for the new COVID 19 vaccine, the one designed to fight the latest variant. Vaccines are available Oct. 16. The perplexing news? So far as I can tell from the website, only 10 pharmacies in all #Edmonton that are providing the vaccine. Surely I'm misreading this?

Heyyy #runners of Mastodon. quick (silly?) question. #BoostOK

I've got this
#Garmin #Forerunner 35 that I use for my runs. As you can see, one of our cats got ahold of the strap and chomped down on it. Like, a lot. It looks like this in several places, such that it's very nearly coming apart.

So I purchased a new strap -- and it turns out the screwdriver included in the set doesn't fit, so I can't get the screws out to replace the strap. We don't have a screwdriver this small with that star-shaped head at home.

What's my best course of action here?
Buy a set of precision screwdrivers?
Go to a jeweller, since they may have the tools available - Screwdriver-as-a-Service kind of thing?

I've already tried a running store that sells Garmin products, they weren't able to help.
😢 I don't want to replace the watch yet - it's not the fanciest, but still working great.
