@robertwgehl @Cyborgneticz I have found Zotero invaluable for cataloguing new sources. Haven’t tried importing stuff I already have. But it’s great for going to a website and importing things directly in with metadata and all (of course it depends on the journal or other site having good metadata).

My son at a climate rally in downtown Vancouver today, being stark but realistic.

Back home in Vancouver after 2 days on the far east coast of Canada in Newfoundland. I liked St. John’s a lot. Someday would like to see more of the island! View from Signal Hill.

False advertising, St John’s, Newfoundland. No chips were in sight.
