When Is The Gardening Season Over?

I was complaining about our first snowfall on Facebook four days ago. A friend teased me, “Well, you are the cold climate gardener.” Oh, yes, I am a cold climate gardener and–I trust–a hardy soul. But this is the time of year when my heart says “Time to snuggle around the fire!” and my brain says “You still need to dig up the glads, empty all the pots, cut back the peonies, and”–well, you get the picture. The transition from “good fall” to “bad fall” is always tough. Seemingly overnight, wha...

APA Study Shows Irresponsible Media Coverage Doubles Mass Shootings

Don Lemon CNN U.S.A. -( Ammoland.com )- A paper presented to the American Psychological Association found the number of mass killings, rampage killings or “mass shootings”, may be doubled by irresponsible media aggrandizement of mass killers. The desire for fame was found to be one of the main motivators of these rampage killers. From apa.org:“Unfortunately, we find that a cross-cutting trait among many profiles of mass shooters is desire for fame,” she said. This quest for fame among mass s...

Non-series book sorts with series books

I have a small number of books in my Calibre library that sort oddly. I sort by Published, then Series, then Author, so that it will display by author in publication order with series books at the end. But with these books, they sort as if they are in a series that has no name...i.e., between the non-series books and the series books. I've tried to find any trace of an old series in the meta-data, but nothing seems to work...no matter what I do, the books are "stuck" among the series books. ...

For the Love (and sometimes not) of Borage

I’ve been growing borage (Borago officinalis) for almost as long as I’ve been a gardener, but when I look back, I can’t recall why I started growing it in the first place. Borage is an unpleasantly prickly if not painful plant. It grows scraggly and too tall in my well-cared-for soil and relies on neighbouring …

"When his book came out last year, I saluted Flake for doing something politically contraindicated and Rubicon-crossing, establishing himself..."

"... as the first Republican senator to call President Trump the domestic and international menace that he is. I applauded him for describing the president’s tweets as 'all noise and no signal' and for daring to charge his administration with Orwellian doublespeak, 'dividing us along fissures of truth and falsity and keeping us in a kind of low-level dread.' I said that Flake’s book had rhetorical power. But looking back on it, it didn’t. Jeff Flake’s book couldn’t even convince Jeff Flake. As o...

Content How to format .mobi files to send to Kindle

How can I format the .mobi books I send to my Kindle so Amazon recognizes the the author field should be sorted LN FN even if the field shows FN LN. Amazon takes the author name literally and sorts it FN LN on the devices. Its as if the author field isn't an actual name and just another title. Either I send the file formatted with a comma (LN,_FN underscore is only shown here to indicate the space between the comma and the FN) and the author sort is right, but then the file shows up in Conten...

three quick questions

1. How can I add books to Calibre and have the author field show exactly as it is in the file metadata? I have about 1000 .mobi files I converted last year to upload to my Kindle account, but some were formatted FN LN and others LN, FN and I wanted to re-edit them to all the same style. Also, does having a space between the "," and the LN (FN, LN) make a difference? I have a couple that don't have that extra space and importing them shows the comma. 2. Is there a way of changing the author...

Leave the leaves? I think not.  by  Elizabeth Licata

Left here, these leaves are a nuisance now that will be just as much of a nuisance in the spring. It’s the bad gardening advice that will not die. Why? Because it sounds so great, so freeing, so right. What? I don’t have to rake anymore? I can leave the leaves that fell all over my lawn and flower beds exactly where they are? What’s wrong with that? That’s awesome! Actually, this is fine forest management advice. On the forest floor, leaves drop and gradually decay, the operative word being g...

The free Eat More Plants! cookbook

By Leo Babauta A couple months ago, one of my favorite cookbook authors/bloggers (Jules Clancy of Stone Soup) came to me and asked in her Australian accent, “G’day Leo, how would you like to collaborate on a free vegan cookbook? I promise it won’t have Fosters or vegemoit in it, mate!” OK, she didn’t say exactly that, but that’s how I imagine it would have gone if she’d said it in person and not over email. Either way, I said yes. Or more like, “Hell yes!” Jules went through all the trouble o...
