Today I went and got my first manicure in more than a decade. I‘m a nail biter and have been my whole life. I spent the month of July, my birth month, trying to stop with the end goal being a fancy polish colour. I hate dirty nails so summer and gardening is a hot mess time to give oneself this challenge ( did you know soaking in polident gives you white nails? It saved me!) there will be many books and manicure shots henceforth 🤣🤣

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Love it!! 💅 when I was younger I bit my nails and I don‘t remember how I stopped, but somehow I did 🙌🏻 2mo
Cortg Congrats! I‘m not a biter, but I hate any length so I‘m always cutting them super short. I love the blue! Enjoy 😊 2mo
AmyG Perfect color for summer! 2mo

mcctrish @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Covid has certainly helped in my case 🤣🤣 2mo
mcctrish @Cortg I totally hear you about the length and truthfully I used to hate how polish felt on my nails ( not my toes for some reason) I am not sold on keeping them this long and I‘m not sure I can afford to maintain this professional elegance either 🤣🤣 (edited) 2mo
mcctrish @AmyG whatever it‘s real name is 🤷🏻‍♀️ I‘m calling it swimming pool blue 🤣🤣 2mo
LeahBergen They look great! And I‘ve never heard of that Polident trick. 😮 2mo
mcctrish @LeahBergen my manicure person said she learned that in school, a lot of times the older ladies just wanted nail care, not polish but your nails yellow with age. So they‘d soak with polident #themoreyouknow (edited) 2mo
LeahBergen That‘s good to know as I get into my own “older ladies” years. 😆 2mo
mcctrish @LeahBergen I‘ve done it twice this month ( cooking and gardening and I don‘t know what else made a few of my nails disgusting ) 2mo
Tamra I had no idea! They look fabulous! 2mo
Cathythoughts Nails look great. Thanks for the tip 👍🏻😁 2mo
mcctrish @Tamra it‘s a game changer 👏🏻👏🏻 and thank you 2mo
mcctrish @Cathythoughts thank you so much and you are welcome, a little soak while you read maybe ? 2mo

This was fascinating and more than I expected
Full disclosure I needed an audio book while I waited for a hold to come and I liked the cover. I‘d like this in poster form to remind me to maximize my breathing potential.
Fun fact: if you feel a panic attack coming on or are with someone who is do not take or say “take deep breaths” hold you breath instead. #themoreyouknow

Another amazing book by Atul Gawande!!! We can always strive to be better. Through our medical history we have often thought that we had the best medicine, the best technic, the best treatment, and then along comes someone else who shows us a Better way. I hope I never get so stuck in my ways that I refuse to believe a Better way is possible. #AtulGawande #Nurselife #Better #themoreyouknow #putyourprideaside

The Know-Nothing Party: A Sketch | Humphrey Joseph Desmond
post image

A very interesting article about the rise and fall of the Know Nothing Party in the 19th century and its lessons for the modern Republican Party. #TheMoreYouKnow #HistoricalContext

https://apple.news/AS1QVEVJ8Q9-i5Hs6i5s5Ug

That-Bookish-Hiker Very interesting! I first heard about them after watching Dickinson on Apple+ which follows Emily Dickinsons life loosely and her father is running for senate and he mentions them. At first I thought it was made up but nope. Thanks for sharing! 2y
KathyWheeler The first time I heard about this party, I thought it was a joke, but no. 2y
Lcsmcat Thanks for sharing this. I learned about the Know Nothing Party in high school history, but only as a failed presidential bid. I didn‘t know that they had gotten people into state legislatures or the House. 2y

Today I Learned that the term "redneck" actually came from a 1920s coal worker's rebellion, and now songs like "Red Neck Woman" seem gross.

I was really pleasantly surprised by the bipartisan and diverse selection of speeches in this collection. Personal favourites of mine include speeches by Sojourner Truth, Marie Colvin, Julia Gillard, Kavita Krishnan, Michelle Obama, and Jacinda Ardern. She Speaks is a quick but powerful read, and hopefully a sign of more such collections to come. Full review here: https://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/new-releases/

TrishB My daughter has a pillow which has the words of the Julia Gillard speech on. She starts many sentences with ‘I will not be lectured‘! 2y
Freespirit Julia Gillard‘s speech was powerful.. really admire her 2y
Chrissyreadit I‘m so glad you posted this. I did not know about Julia Gillard and had to go watch her speech and read her background. #reasonsilovelitsy #themoreyouknow 2y

Poems and Fragments | Sappho Sappho
post image

Today‘s author spotlight: Sappho! She is a poet from Greece‘s Archaic period (750-490 BC). She hailed from Lesbos and was exiled to Sicily at one point. She was extremely prolific, esteemed, and influential, writing over 10,000 lines of poetry, mostly lost, and named “The Tenth Muse” and “The Poetess”. The words sapphic and lesbian come from her and her island in regards to her well-known romantic love for women. #AuthorPotpourri #TheMoreYouKnow

Gina WoW thank you for the bit of knowledge♡ 2y

Today‘s spotlight is on Kōbō Abe, pen name of Kimifusa Abe! He‘s often been compared to Franz Kafka and Alberto Moravia for his surreal and nightmarish takes on contemporary society. He was born in Tokyo in 1924 and died there in 1993 at 68. His childhood was spent in Manchuria. He was deeply into the arts, and married an artist & fellow playwright. He was expelled from the Japanese Communist Party. #AuthorPotpourri #TheMoreYouKnow
