In The Age of Purple
Yolo County, CA, US

[Another (very small) flower from my grandfather's garden.] But if you may lend your philosophical ear for a moment, let's consider an interesting aspect of flowers together. We (humans) go through life thinking about our appearance, beauty and age on a day by day basis, year by year and decade by decade. We have better days and decades, and worse days and decades. Flowers (and plants in general) bloom rapidly but typically do so from one end to another (or one flower to another on a larger plant) and expose their entire aging process at once. The smallest pods on the bottom of this flower are older than the ones at the top; they stand tall and show their entire aging process at once as if they exist in all their ages at once.

Joplin - and very good open source note taking and to-do application alternative to Evernote

This app ticks many of the boxes for most people who want something independent of Evernote:
* Can sync to OneNote, Dropbox, NextCloud, or another WebDAV network drive
* End-to-End encryption can be enabled (if for example, you are syncing outside of your own hosted storage)
* Can import from an Evernote file
* Can attach images or files to notes
* Support for extra features such as math notation and checkboxes
* Can create a tickable todo list
* Uses commonly used Github-flavoured Markdown editing
* Can create multiple notebooks and sub-notebooks
* Can tag notes
* Mobile app can save geolocation as well
* Has clients for LInux, MacOS, Windows (including portable version for USB stick), Android and iOS
* Can work from a terminal too
* Sort notes by multiple criteria - title, updated time, etc
* Support for alarms (notifications) in mobile and desktop applications
* Can work in offline mode
* Supports multiple languages (15 currently)

Yes, it won't do everything that Evernote does but this does give you maximum freedom as well as security (along with convenience). It is free and open source too so no suddenly finding Evernote has sold up and you have nowhere to put your notes.

Just take note if you want to use NextCloud read the instructions first about creating the extra folder and use the WebDAV settings. Joplin does not create the sub-folder automatically for you although it does do so with OneDrive and Dropbox.

10 days before reaching Pluto, a New Horizons glitch causes a computer reset. You now have to send the rendezvous instructions again and get it right. This is what the team had to do to do it. Excerpt from Alan Stern's book on New Horizons. "On the Saturday afternoon of July 4, 2015, NASA’s New Horizons Pluto mission leader Alan Stern was in his office near the project Mission Control Center, working, when his cell phone rang. He was aware of the Independence Day holiday but was much more focused on the fact that the date was “Pluto flyby minus 10 days.” New Horizons, the spacecraft mission that had been the central focus of his career for 14 years, was now just 10 days from its targeted encounter with the most distant planet ever explored.
[...]
Glancing at his ringing phone, Alan was surprised to see the caller was Glen Fountain, the longtime project manager of New Horizons. He felt a chill because he knew that Glen was taking time off for the holiday, at his nearby home, before the final, all-out intensity of the upcoming flyby. Why would Glen be calling now?

Alan picked up the phone. “Glen, what’s up?”
“We’ve lost contact with the spacecraft.”
Alan replied, “I’ll meet you in the MOC; see you in five minutes.” Alan hung up his phone and sat down at his desk for a few seconds, stunned, shaking his head in disbelief. Unintentional loss of contact with Earth should never happen to any spacecraft. It had never before happened to New Horizons over the entire nine-year flight from Earth to Pluto. How could this be happening now, just 10 days out from Pluto?
[...]
As more telemetry came back from the bird, they learned that all of the command files for the flyby that had been uploaded to the main computer had been erased when the spacecraft rebooted to the backup computer. This meant that the Core flyby sequence sent that morning would have to be reloaded. But worse, numerous supporting files needed to run the Core sequence, some of which had been loaded as far back as December, would also need to be sent again. Alice recalls, “We had never recovered from this kind of anomaly before. The question was, could we do it in time to start the flyby sequence, scheduled to begin on July 7?”
[...]

President Donald J Trump has written to this:

If the FBI or DOJ was infiltrating a campaign for the benefit of another campaign, that is a really big deal. Only the release or review of documents that the House Intelligence Committee (also, Senate Judiciary) is asking for can give the conclusive answers. Drain the Swamp!
