This morning at the old Emily Griffith Opportunity School in #Denver . She opened this trade school in 1916 in what was then a condemned building with the intent of serving “all who wished to learn”. The school has since expanded and now has multiple campuses. But this building has been boarded up for years while the city and developers figure out what to do with a historic building sitting on a prime location in downtown. Unfortunately, opportunity in Denver is not booming for all.

I didn't know...it's horrible here...it's not gentrification yet, more Rusting Timber Town with a College overlay @alysonsee (Hz)
  
People being priced out of Denver? Maybe Greely’s time has finally come.
  
After checking out zillow, I take it back. Greeley looks overpriced and seems to have a lot of foreclosures.
  
Found on the sidewalk on the walk to work. Usually, it’s just discarded socks and food containers along the way. #denver #photo

First snow

We had our first snow of the season. The ground is still too warm for it to stick. Here was my view tonight in Colorado Springs as the snow fog lifted.

Every time I sniffle, Suki swings her head around and gives me a startled, worried stare. I don’t know for sure but her level of concern suggests that she expects I will explode on inhale.

My #cat_I_miss, Paciorek used to meow with disapproval after every our sniffle.
  
@splendorsolis@diasp.org That’s funny. I wonder what they are thinking. Maybe instead of worry, it’s disapproval, and they think we just have bad manners. :)

I think it's very possible. :)

He loves his wubbie. So, of course, he brought it to share the sunny spot with him.

<3 Zoya loves to get new stuffed animals so our apartment looks like we have little child :)
Morning

  
Twenty minutes before my alarm went off, before the sun came up even, this guy climbed up the bed towards me, stood on my chest and sneezed 3 times in my face. So, no real point in sleeping after that. Once I was back in bed with a big cup of tea, he climbed onto my lap, faced me, and started doing the urka gurka. Bless him for giving me enough warning to transfer him off the bed and to a more suitable place to toss his cookies. He’s a very good boy, and now seems completely unphased and sure that I will share my peanut butter on toast.

Photo beautiful as always <3
  
Thanks, @splendorsolis@diasp.org ! Always a pleasure to see you out here.
Snuggle practice

  
Suki understands: You’ve had a long week, and it’s hard to settle down. But when you are ready, she is here to show you how relaxing and snuggling is done properly.

Runs errands with dogs

  
Miss Roo was good company on my errand run this morning. She got to go into the post office, the bank, and the dry cleaners. She is very calm, loves the adventure, and is content in my arms when we go inside places.

Napping

  
The poodles beat me to the napping spot.

Friends-only photos

  
So, here’s why my non-Hubzilla friends are not seeing the photos in my friends-only posts: The text in a post gets included in what is pushed out to other pods, but photos are attachments and only the link to them is sent. So, when a post appears in a feed, the browser has to go back to the original pod to pull the photo. Hubzilla implements privacy protections on all photos/uploads—in particular, the OpenWebAuth protocol (aka magic-auth). If your account isn’t associated with an OpenWebAuth profile, Hubzilla can’t authenticate you. Diaspora doesn’t implement OpenWebAuth; and Friendica implements a fork of the protocol that is not compatible with Hubzilla’s. The reason my friends were able to see photos in my friends-only posts from my D* account is that Diaspora implements no privacy protections whatsoever. (Even if a user uploaded the photo in the context of a friends-only post, anyone anywhere on the internet can still see that photo if they have its URL.)

Although it’s a pain in the patootie that my non-Hubzilla friends can’t see my photos, I’d rather have that than everyone else being able to see them too.

In other news, it is a beautiful day in my backyard. The Mountain Ash is heavy with berries. The sky is clear, the breeze is cool, and the sounds of grilling vegetables and tortillas being made by hand are coming over the fence. Basically, it is a perfect afternoon. And I may well end up napping on the porch soon.

Tagging folks I think might be interested in this explanation

Many thanks to @M. Dent and @Mike Macgirvin for taking the time to explain it to me.

That's what I figured. I think Friendica is working on this authentication for the next release, but I guess it's different enough now (I'm on RC) that it still won't communicate.
Goodnight, friends.

  
I found out why photos in friends-only posts aren’t visible to friends on other networks. It’s a fairly simply explanation, and I promise to share what I learned once my eyelids are not drooping. In the meantime, please enjoy tonight’s rooftop sunset.

Interested to know what caused that sharing issue.
Still summer

  
On September 1, it was like a switch was flipped: The daytime temperatures dropped and the nighttime temperatures dropped even further. And abruptly on Monday, the switch flipped back. We had to turn the air conditioning back on and I returned to carrying my parasol for walks to/from work in 90+ degree heat (32+ celsius). I’m wishing for sweater weather.

Gorgeous photo btw!
  
Thanks, @Sunyata!

@Mark I hope you get some perfect autumn days for hiking. I've only been to the UK once, and it is forever 17C and partly cloudy in my mind.
 from Friendica
You were lucky if it was only partly cloudy :) That climate suits me just fine - I'm not good with the heat. So long as it's dry and not so warm that it's uncomfortable, I'm happy.
Blue blue blue

  
One of the things I love about Colorado is the intense shade of blue that is the sky. I feel like I could fall into it and never stop falling into blue.

Anti-gravity!
  
The remorseless face of a dog who ate something she shouldn’t have. On the upside, if Crayola calls, I have some suggestions for new names for vibrant shades of green.
