I haven’t posted any stories here on Progressive Dreamers in quite a while… It does look like CD is having technical issues again - so I’ll start posting again tonight or tomorrow morning if that continues. I fell recently and landed on broken glass which cut up my right hand pretty bad (20 stitches) - so I can’t type and do other work very efficiently.

No copyright issues as CD is nice to publish them with a Creative Commons license so when post one of their stories, I just acknowledge where the article came from and they are fine with it.


I know how you feel D. I fell and broke my wrist end november. In plaster for 6 weeks. It was a nightmare. Still is. Good luck.

Oh my goodness I’m sorry for your injury. I didn’t mean to give you extra work! Thanks for what you’re doing.

No problem. I wonder if CD has problems with hackers - the latest problem with the blank comment sections getting generated looks pretty weird to happen by anything they’d do by accident.

Hackers or not, looks like CD is restricting comments again - today 29th feb.
Did you get your stitches out?

I only skimmed CD today and hadn’t noticed that. Was there a particular story that didn’t have comments? Or all of them?

Thanks for asking about my hand. Stitches are out but I still don’t have good use of my right thumb (can’t use a fork or knife with my right hand or use a hammer or brush my teeth with my right hand for example) - pretty frustrating overall - but it is getting better and the doctor says I should be fine in a few weeks.

It’s the latest top articles. 4 or 5. Within the last 30 minutes.

I am 6 weeks out of my plastercast and still having physiotherapy. I know how it feels to not be able to brush teeth/use knife/etc. But my writing with my left hand is impeccable. :rofl:

As the harried customer said to the staff at the upholstery shop: “I hope you recover quickly!”

(My left-handed writing looks like crap - but no one reads it except me so I can manage for now.)

Hi - Yes - David thought a good first book for discussion would be “How Fascism Works” by Jason Stanley. We discussed format a bit and thought that doing a zoom meeting might work better for having a nice discussion and to limit this first try to just six people so we can get it working well. Also I suggested giving people a month to get and read the book. Still interested?

I haven’t got zoom or anything like it. I don’t have a computer. And as i said the books must be able to read online. (Not kindle. Don’t have that either) I am deprived of many things computerwise.

Hmmm - I can certainly arrange to have the book shipped to you if it’s not available at your local library. Do you have a tablet like an iPad or are you just working from a phone? - zoom certainly works on tablets. Participation from a phone is also fine - though you wouldn’t see the other people (it would just feel like a conference call).
