Well, we are moving into Autumn in the northern hemisphere. The days have been bright but much cooler. I am getting rich pickings from the garden: the tomatoes are doing well after a slow start and I had my first potatoes yesterday - so delicious, I had them for dinner and tea!
(Source) I went to visit the gardens at Lamport Hall, a Grade 1 stately pile about half an hour's drive from where I live. I went with my sewing group and we posed for a photograph on the steps of the porch.
Lamport Hall is a hidden gem in Northamptonshire boasting wonderful gardens, stunning architecture, [and] an impressive art and furniture collection. The Hall is Grade I listed and is of great architectural importance, showcasing work by John Webb and Smith of Warwick. From 1560 to 1976, the Hall was home to the Isham family, one of the oldest families in Northamptonshire. As a result, the collections have remained virtually untouched throughout the centuries providing a captivating snapshot of life in a country house. Come and see the treasures collected by Sir Thomas Isham on his Grand Tour as a newly inherited teenage Baronet, witness the architectural changes made by two feisty wives in the 19th century, and meet Lampy, the first and only surviving garden gnome to be imported from Germany in the 1800s.

Imagine the dusting!
The gardens were beautiful, though, I enjoyed sketching and taking pictures for an hour before we went to a nearby pub for a meal - also very nice. A lovely evening! What have you been up to?
ListNerds is doing well for SPinvest, boosting the earnings this week.

Now then, would anyone be interested in a @susie-saver School of ListNerds - like School of Rock only without Jack Black? I was thinking maybe a post a week introducing ListNerds, taking it step by step, for maybe six weeks? (I haven't worked it all out yet). There would be giveaways for taking part each week, probably CTP (although I'm open to other suggestions) as that would be the most useful token for new starters on List Nerds.
Let me know what you think in the comments.
EDS Mini Miner (EDSMM)
There's about 10,000 EDSMMs left now, excellent news for regular savers, plenty of time to build your stash. Savers are looking at a current income of 28% APY - how about that? (Remember that income will change over time: @eddie-earner has given some simulations about that so you can plan your future income against your budget).
You can also buy your EDSMMs directly from the @eddie-earner account, saving you the 1% fees to deposit and withdraw from Hive-Engine. We have tried to set up recurring payments but in a test we found the code wasn't able to pick up repeat payments - we'll keep working to find a way round that. Meanwhile, you can still do one-off purchases by transferring HIVE to @eddie-earner.
There are 480 chances to win in the lottery every 24 hours with just 1 HIVE.
- Read about it in this post.
- Buy EDSMMs or buy directly from your HIVE wallet.
- REMEMBER TO STAKE YOUR EDSMM TOKENS TO START MINING!
Saturday Savers Club is going to be giving away EDSMMs from now until the end of the year. These are sponsored by @shanibeer. Each For your chance to win, take part in each of the contests as they come up in the Saturday Savers Post.
Last week, the challenge was to tell us your favourite Hive-engine token. We had eight people taking part, and @metzli over on #leothreads. All together, nine people took part and the tokens named were:
- ALIVE - "because I learned a lot about Hive through the community"
- SPI - "a nice dividend"
- EDSMM - "I bought 800" (does that count? 🤔 😁)
- LOLZ - "tips, delegating, FUN airdrop"
- LEO - "lots of development"
- WORKERBEE - "supports Hive-Engine"
- BRO - "upvotes, dividends, liquid"
There was also lots of support for EDS 😍 and SPI on leothreads.
Everyone went in the Wheel of Names and we have a winner: @myothuzar Yay! Check your wallet!
Do you know all these tokens? Are any new to you? Do you agree with people's choices?
THIS WEEK'S CONTEST
Well, it's Hive Power Up Day this week: Thursday 1 September 2022. Leave links to your Hive Power Up post in the comments for a chance to win an EDSMM. You can also leave links to your regular savings post (or a review) if you power up everything all the time so there's no opportunity to take part in Hive Power Up Day.
Whichever post you decide to do, tell us any thoughts about your savings plans for between now and the end of the year. I'm going to be doing a no-buy month in September to whittle down all my stores. Anyone is welcome to join me ... or perhaps you have other savings plans?
The small print: What do you think about a savings quiz for the end of the year? Prizes, of course 😉

- The SPI family motto is Get Rich Slowly. This covers EDS and EDSM, the home tokens for the Saturday Savers Club, as well as SPI, LBI and CL. The bottom line is that we are looking for well-researched options which bring a steady income. Good options will have an identifiable and easily accessible team (with emphasis on more than one person involved), a clear plan and use case for the token, and transparency and accountability through regular reporting.
- Individual members are free (of course they are) to publish guides to tokens under their own account - and any number of members can do that.
