Well it looks like my new time sucker is #midjourney AI.
I asked it for images of #theforks in #winnipeg on a sunny fall day, and this is what I got.
One of those rare days when Houston TX & Winnipeg MB are at the same temperature. #winnipeg #wpgweather
It would be nice if the brain trust on Broadway could do this here, too. #winnipeg

Anyone else fearing it's going to be an indoor summer as wildfires take hold? Awful out there today in #Winnipeg 😞
While it’s nice that we managed to get out of the hazy skies this morning, we should enjoy it while it lasts! Going to get _very_ smokey once the cold front passes mid-day. Likely see visibilities under 1 mile in smoke. If you have sensitivities to air quality, plan to be indoors this afternoon! #Winnipeg #smoke #mbwx
I love this photo. 30K protesters went on strike for 6 weeks, representing nearly 20% of the city’s population. Other cities sometimes rock too! #winnipeg
The City of Winnipeg is working very hard to hide the truth about the claimed benefits of the proposed widening of Route 90.
Many of the claims run counter to general modern road design concepts, but even the city's own data contradicts the claims.
This post does a great job breaking the mythical claims down

Nice long walks in warm weather means revisiting street art. This has been around for a few years, I think, and is done by press.on.wpg (found on other social media but apparently not here) who puts birds all over public spaces, as well as positive messages. #Winnipeg #StreetArt

Today in Labor History May 15, 1919: Workers in Winnipeg, Canada, initiated a huge general strike involving 30,000 workers. The strike lasted until June 26th, when the Winnipeg Labor Council declared the strike over. During the strike, the Mounted Police tried repeatedly to violently suppress the workers. The workers called for a six-hour workday and a five-day work week. During the strike, virtually the entire workforce halted work. Even the local cops voted for the strike. However, the strike committee asked the cops and utility workers to stay on the job to help keep basic services functioning. They set up a huge public kitchen which served food to hundreds of people each day. The Winnipeg “Free Press” called the strikers bohunks, aliens and anarchists. The called in the Royal Mounted Police and arrested dozens of people, charging some with seditious conspiracy. On Bloody Saturday, June 21, the Mounties fired into the crowd, killing one and wounding thirty others. In May and June, General Strikes broke out in 30 other Canadian cities.

Hey #winnipeg comic peeps, Chip Zdarsky is signing 11am–2pm today at 204Comics. Go and get your Chip fix.
This could be the Winnipeg Guy's best work yet.
Subject: The case for widening Kenaston. Not only is the post itself excellent, but the linked video and slide deck from Ken Walker (presenter to City Council) is just so good. Ken is my new hero!
Just a reminder that my hometown newspaper, the #Winnipeg Free Press, is on Mastodon at https://journa.host/@winnipegfreepress. #Manitoba 🇨🇦
Hear me out. Hockey is a winter sport. It shouldn't be played in June. How hockey season should be determined is you have an ice rink set up just north of Winnipeg. You fill it with water. When it freezes, hockey season starts. When it melts, hockey season is officially over.
Jane's Walks take place next weekend. I've been on several of the walks in Winnipeg and they have all been fun, engaging, and educational. Here's the info for a few Canadian cities (I'm sure there are events in many other cities too):

Jeff Browaty would probably call my brother a "special interest group" because he drives a sedan. He seems to think people like me, who walk and think the world would be a better place if more people chose to do that over taking a car, are a danger to society.
I feel like I should take the snow tires off today
I grew up here and its not august yet so anything can happen
Meanwhile, #Winnipeg #Manitoba is going back to the worst days of the 20th century with this plan to allow cars to whip through its signature intersection, Portage and Main, at even greater speeds.
Winnipeggers (yes, that's what we call ourselves), please take the time to fill out the City's survey on the future of Portage and Main. Letting human beings cross the streets is still a no-go (because of course) but there are other ways to improve it. I filled it out with some restrained colour commentary on why designs should make pedestrians more visible and engaged with the corner so that drivers know we're there and that it's equally ours. #Winnipeg #urbanism https://engage.winnipeg.ca/portageandmain
Winnipeggers can now be 100% confident that Spring has sprung.
Tried out Fire and Spice tacos and was pleasantly surprised that on Tuesdays they’re buy three get the fourth free. So of course I got five.
Really good birria, solid broth, fabulous pickled onions. Pineapple and jalapeño salsa was perfection.

Been jamming this album all day. It’s from a #Winnipeg group called “Locator” (previously known as “Louser”).
I know there's only, like four Winnipeggers who follow me here, but holy shit is this huge and awesome and long overdue. I am so excited about this!
A quest for knowledge is an important factor in staying young when you're retired so I was excited to discover that Winnipeg is famous for the Fat Boy Burger. Not sure how this important fact didn't come to my attention earlier during business trips to the Peg. Obviously I was not exposed to the city's full spectrum of culture. I wonder if there is a faithful version local to me here in Caledon Ontario?

VIA Rail's Churchill train was 16 miles out of downtown #Winnipeg and kicking up snow this afternoon. #trains #photography #viarail
In stories about #Ottawa's canal, the 'longest skating rink in the world' and I think about what a jerk move it was for #Winnipeg to go plow a strip of their river, longer than ours just to steal the title.
I mean really – let us have that.
So now we carefully say "largest" instead, since ours isn't truck-wide strip up the middle of a river but rather a wide surface between stone walls.
I lived in Winnipeg, have family there, and like it, but it just seems like a bit of an a*hole move.
Ice sculptures at Upper Fort Garry (with jig music playing) in #Winnipeg. The posts and signs are in ice as well, but it looks like yesterday's mild weather may have melted them a bit. There are snow sculptures around downtown too, and likely some in St. Boniface as well. I hope to take a walk in the neighbourhood when #FestivalDuVoyageur is on, though I might not have the time to visit it myself.
I wish we'd do this in #Winnipeg.
Denver: "Denver’s e-bike rebate program was so popular that the September round of the rebate program was claimed in nine minutes of its opening. By the end of 2022, more than 4,700 e-bike rebates were issued with nearly half going to low-income residents. And by all accounts, it’s been successful in its goal of reducing driving. In a survey, 71 percent of those who rode e-bikes said it helped them cut down on their car usage."
Bobby Hull, a Hall-of-Fame hockey player, just died. His son is also in the Hall-of-Fame. 🏒
A rare thing for a parent/child to both achieve greatness like this.
Can you think of any other examples like this? Does NOT have to be in sports. 🤔
Highly recommend taking your 12-week-old to walk through #Winnipeg “Lights at the Zoo”, even if it’s -20 outside. It’ll blow her tiny mind

@KevinMarks In #Winnipeg, we'd call this "par for the course".
There have been at least four First Nations women in #Winnipeg killed by serial killer Jeremy Skibicki and their bodies could’ve been dumped in a landfill but authorities decided not to search because it would not be feasible. Why isn’t this bigger news?
My Manitobah Mukluks arrived today and they are GLORIOUS!! My 15 year old mukluks finally fell apart last winter (from a Manitoba creator, but not Manitobah Mukluks). Now that I’m in Alberta I have to order from a store, for the first time. But they did not disappoint. Now I think I need to upgrade my mitts and moccasins🤣.

I like this #introduction tradition, so here goes!
I'm a Master's student studying #computerscience at the University of Manitoba in #Winnipeg in the #HCI lab. Currently, I'm studying the use of #nudges in #banking systems designed for informal #caregivers of older adults (#aging).
I try to stay super active, playing #ultimate #frisbee and #hockey, #triathlon training, and #hiking. When confined inside I spend my time playing and listening to all sorts of #music and playing #boardgames.
i've waffled about what to say by way of and #introduction for ... well for as long as i've been here.
i'm melanie, and i'm a #poet and a former academic.
i'm working on two book-length #poetry manuscripts: one considers mental illness and the call to survive as well as the cost of survival; the other is somewhat more sprawling and is about the estrangement of two sisters, leaving the place you grow up (and staying there), family trauma and the way private traumas ripple out beyond their original confines.
otherwise, i'm always noodling around with #essays and #fiction and unattached #poems.
i write a monthly #poetry column for the Winnipeg Free Press and try to keep on top what's being published in #Canada. sometimes i interview writers about their books for Prairie Books Now.
when i post, i'm mostly talking about #writing, #poems, #trauma, #MentalIllness, #reading, my #cat, and #Winnipeg.
I am very happy to announce that my hometown #newspaper, The Winnipeg Free Press, is now on Mastodon! You can find them at "@ email@example.com" (*without* the space in between!).

I’m not great at introductions or distillations of self, but I’m grateful to be here and feel weirdly relieved to be on a platform that resists virality and personal branding.
Winnipeg is home.
I’m interested in theories and ideas, music and sounds. I’m mostly compelled by things I didn’t know could be things.
I love words, sentences, and paragraphs, but I’m intensely ambivalent about the struggle of reading and writing.
I’m a UX designer at a university and a former editor/bike mechanic.
I’d be very glad to connect with self-identified weirdos.
