 Has only taken me three days to get around to my second Ulog. I’ve started to write this a few times and each time I found myself distracted by something else.

Reminds me of that prayer “dear lord please help me to — OOOh Look at the bird! — be more focused”. Best of intentions, execution can be a bit off.

So the other night the blockchain came to a crashing halt. Well, maybe not crashing but it did what it was supposed to do in that it encountered a transaction it didn’t know how to deal with and it just brought everything to a halt. That safeguarded all of our data and our wallets.

Within hours the devs had a fix and the witnesses went without sleep getting the fix applied and the system back up and running. It’s great to know that dedication is there to keeping things running. Nice work folks.

The price of Steem has shown signs of recovery the last few days. If you check out the other cryptos and in particular Bitcoin, they also are showing signs of rallying from the bear market that has been happening the last several weeks.

The Rambling Radio station has been coming together over the last couple of weeks. In addition to @artemisnorth’s Creatives Coffee Hour and Pimp Your Post Thursday, two more shows have been added to the lineup. The Curation Corner hosted by @artemisnorth and I debuted this past Tuesday. Yesterday @crazybgadventure did a trial run of his show The Steem Adventure.

There is another show which just needs to decide on their time slot and yet anther the host is mulling over options on. So, could be interesting times ahead.

Speaking of new shows, @snook has debuted her new podcast “Pants Are Optional”. If the first episode is any indication, this is going to be a fun series and one we’ll be waiting for each episode of it. I hope she’s going to consider entering the in @comedyopenmic.

 I see that Banfield has decided to disable his witness and move on to something else. Can’t say I’m sorry to see him go. Never saw him as someone who was an asset to this community.

There are some amazing people on this platform. There really is. They range from the people who are really good people I consider to be a friend to people who do amazing things for the platform.

Sadly, like most communities, there is a dark underbelly. People with questionable morals to say the least and those who are criminal in their behaviour. Recently one individual who I’ve experienced and been aware of his misogynistic behaviour for some time has been revealed to not only confine his disgusting behaviour to adult women, he also terrorizes young teen women.

Guys like that have no place on this platform. They get away with their behaviour because they are not named. People talk about them but rarely publicly name them. It’s way past time for you to leave @walden.

The heat wave which arrived with Canada has continued. Still under an extreme heat warning which means that people like me with potential breathing issues need to limit their time out in the weather.

I will need to go out on Friday for a few hours but hopefully the air is working at the branch. We have a dinner on and I’ll be working the door. The forecast is not indicating any relief from the heat in the near future.

In closing I’m going to shameless swipe (temporarily) @bluefinstudio’s tagline he uses on his posts. It seems so fitting with the comments I just made about people on this platform:
