A Woman Learning Some Grappling Skills

I had several dreams that I woke up remembering but I kept going back to sleep without recording them, I just let them fade away without trying to continue remembering them, and so now I can only barely remember part of one of the dreams that was not even my last dream.


All that I can remember of this dream is that a woman was trying to learn some grappling skills, and another woman was teaching her inside a building and outside of it.


Anders Norén To Design Twenty Twenty Default Theme Shipping In WordPress 5.3

Recently Sarah Gooding reported some good news at the WordPress Tavern about the upcoming Twenty Twenty default WordPress theme to be released in WordPress 5.3 in a post called Anders Norén To Design Twenty Twenty Default Theme Shipping In WordPress 5.3.

This is great news, Anders Norén has made some good free themes that I would be using today if they had some of the newer features and some options that I need in a theme, and so I am more hopeful that he will make a usable default WordPress theme.


Automattic Acquires Tumblr Plans To Rebuild The Backend Powered By WordPress

Recently WordPress Tavern had a post about Automattic acquiring Tumblr called: Automattic Acquires Tumblr Plans To Rebuild The Backend Powered By WordPress.

I was not expecting that at all, I am not sure if this was a good idea or not to acquire a dying brand, but I am curious to see what happens.

Automattic owns WordPress and et cetera, Tumblr was one of its competitors, and so this should be interesting regardless of whether it fails or not.

The end,
