All Over the Map: A Cartographic Odyssey

In other words, even California's #1 A-rated “gun laws” arent enough and we need more… (Everytown/Facebook) USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “When we do get an ID on the perp, look for all his social media to go on lockdown beforehand or soon thereafter, meaning we will be dependent on what the ‘authorities’ share with the [media] for all information,” I wrote on the WarOnGuns blog yesterday in an updating post on the Borderline Bar and Grill murders.It’s a common reaction whenever someone commits a hei...

Poppies ~ Mary Oliver

The loss of the gardeners of the Heligan estate in Cornwall during the First World War, and the garden's subsequent dereliction is a story that is well-known here in the West Country. Resurrected and restored some years ago, the gardens are now a very popular tourist attraction and this field of poppies was sown in commemoration of the lives that were lost. I thought long and hard about a poem for today, a hundred years since the cessation of hostilities, so many war poems to choose from, oft...

The new iPad Pro 2018 model and Marvin 3.0

I'm curious to hear from anyone who has purchased the new iPad Pro 12 inch model and explain whether Marvin 3.0 scales correctly on this monster because this is the only deal breaker for my decision to purchase this new iPad. If Marvin 3.0 doesn't scale correctly on this then my answer to buying the newest iPad Pro is to pass. Any answer to this question would be greatly appreciated.

My Little Pizza Released for Delivery

Kidrobot has released  My Little Pizza - an Italian pizza by the name of Paolo. Paolo’s mother and father named him this because he was tiny but had a big heart. For example, Paolo once rescued a goat from the evil Pineapple Pizza Gang. Paolo never really liked shoes because no matter how small the size was, it was too big for Paolo’s feet. He also just discovered he liked the taste of pizza and his favorite flavor was himself. Everyone loves his cheesy jokes. Along with their dad (Scott), Ly...

N96 cannot scribble any more

Hello, Out of the blue I cannot scribble on PDF documents any more. This is the first time I'm having this problem with my N96ML. Interestingly, I can still draw lines, triangles and rectangles but I cannot use the pencil or brush options. I can erase the scribbles that I had written before this fault developed. Also, the pencil does work in the Note app in the sense that it is possible to draw but the drawings are not saved. They also disappear when I attempt to change the line thickness. Ho...

Mystery and Crime Kabel, Walther: Harald Harst (022) - Das Armband der Lady M. V1.0 [German] 10.11.2018

Das Armband der Lady Melville. Mein Zimmer bei Frau Torstensen — ich war mittags eingezogen — lag neben dem Balkonzimmer, war nur einfenstrig und besaß eine Verbindungstür nach rechts hin, die durch den Kleiderschrank verstellt war. Wenn ich mein Fenster öffnete, mich hinauslehnte und nach rechts griff, konnte ich bequem das Balkongitter erfassen. Wir hatten das alles genau berechnet, bevor wir bei Frau Torstensen mieteten. — Harald Harst lag sehr viel daran, gerade des geheimnisvollen Busley Z...

Nach einigen gleichgültigen Bemerkungen über das Herbstwetter und zwei Tassen Kaffee, reichte er mir die Zeitung, ohne hineingesehen zu haben, und sagte: »Ich wundere mich, daß Inspektor Brodersen noch nicht hier ist. Die Kriminalpolizei wird doch fraglos schon gemerkt ...

8-Bit Super Mario pixel art Christmas wreath

My niece recently found her stash of Perler Beads and asked me if I wanted to help her make something with them. I knew immediately that I wanted to do some retro pixel art with the original 8-bit Super Mario Brothers game characters. With Christmas coming up soon, we decided that making a Super Mario wreath decoration would be the perfect project for us. To start out, I painstakingly created the sprite patterns we would need for all the 8-bit Mario characters. I made pixel art patterns for ...
