February News

I haven’t had any finished pieces in a while but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working. I have spent so much time cutting and more cutting. I have cut out girls, lady pillow dolls, kitties, dogs, owls, and I can’t remember what else! Finally I am moving forward to sewing and finishing. First up, lady pillow dolls. And then I’m excited to make some dogs in removable clothing. The main event that I am planning and working for is the Smithsonian Craft Show, April 24 – 28. I am so excited to ...

Heckler & Koch’s Forgotten Rifle of the 80s – The G41

When we think of Heckler & Koch in the 1980s we think of the famous G11, the iconic HK MP5 and the stylish P7 pistol. One rifle we don’t tend to think of is the G41, a 5.56x45mm chambered rifle designed to meet NATO’s new requirements. HK hoped the new rifle would be a hit with NATO […] Read More … The post Heckler & Koch’s Forgotten Rifle of the 80s – The G41 appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Colorado Runner Kills Mountain Lion with Bare Hands in Self-Defense

Colorado Runner Kills Mountain Lion with Bare Hands in Self-Defense Colorado -(Ammoland.com)- Big cats are dangerous predators. They usually attack from ambush, without warning, often from behind. That happened to a runner in Colorado. But the runner was not listening to music on earbuds or headphones. He heard something. He started to turn around. He saw the lion launching itself at him. Here is the initial report from Colorado Parks and Wildlife. From state.co.us: LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. – Co...

Edicts Pushed by Opportunists have no Bearing on Shooting that Motivated Indiana Mom

Hoosier daddy, or in this case, nanny state? Indiana gun-grabbers pile up non-sequiturs to demand infringements against the “law-abiding” instead of addressing the violence “progressive” policies make inevitable.

Does This Hack Work With Mac TextEdit?

Hey Folks, I came across a post that gives instructions on how to change the Kindle's default font sizes -- link here: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...2&postcount=19 -- when I tried it using my Mac's built in text editor, TextEdit, it did not work.

Prepared for Anything

[B]Prepared For Anything (Almost)[/B] Bret W. Friend The midafternoon sun warmed the ground in the blasted land, the desolate area which had once been known as Oregon. It was an old name, a reference from a long destroyed world. Broken, dead snags stuck out of the volcanic ash, stark reminders of the lush forest that had once grown there. Other remnants of the forest were merely indistinguishable mounds, long ago buried. The stark gray stretched on endlessly in all directions, broken only by o...

'Zucked: Waking up to the Facebook Catastrophe,' by Roger McNamee [BOOKS]

I can't stop reading my just-out-today hardcover copy of Roger McNamee's new book, 'Zucked: Waking up to the Facebook Catastrophe.' I pre-ordered 'Zucked' last week on my phone when I was out for coffee with my friend Mike Backes (buy his book!), who was so enthralled with it he couldn't put his pre-release copy down, and he carried it with him that day. I stopped what I was doing when the Amazon delivery guy handed it to me a few hours ago. I'm a couple hundred pages in to 'Zucked' now. I get i...

Smart Lawns

Few things in gardening are as polarizing as opinions about lawns. On the one hand, the position of the mainstream turf and landscaping industry is to continue America’s enormous investment in chemical-based, industrially maintained turf, with no consideration for the environmental costs.  Chemlawn forever! On the other is what is popular with horticulturists and environmentalists––that lawns are an unsupportable anachronism and they must be wiped from the landscape, to be replaced by meadows, g...

For the birds

When the snow gets this high, it’s hard to maintain the 4-foot rule. Many people I know find all kinds of reasons not to feed birds in winter. The most common are: The food attracts rats. Indeed, when I was shopping for feeders recently, a garden center employee told me that it was illegal to feed birds in Buffalo. So many weird things about that statement—but, first of all, why is this store selling illegal feeders? As I discovered, there is a bylaw concerning bird feeders: they must be fou...

I think so

Gun control is aimed at shooters. And Sebastian is right here: Pick off the most enthusiastic, and youll be rid of your deplorable gun culture in a generation. This could be where a culture war will pop off. They’re trying to wipe out a culture that shoots. That culture doesn’t like being told what to do. And that’s not good. Take someone shooting.

Well There Now

I know, I know. I absolutely remember what I said about knitting with grey this time of year just a few days ago, but surely, the rule (that I made) can be broken by me at any moment I see fit, and surely, surely, it was not intended for spectacularly perfect little skeins of yarn like this. That’s the little Jacob from two posts ago – spun up in entirety, into five gorgeous little skeins that are exactly as I imagined them. (If a little plumper than I intended, after their baths.) Each is a tw...

If I remove a book from my Kobo Aura One, will my annotations be spared?

If I remove a book from my Kobo Aura One, will my annotations be indefinitely spared, so that if I download the book onto my Kobo, they'll still be there? I tried quickly deleting a book and downloading it again, and at least then, the annotations were there, but is there a limit to how long or how many of them they get spared?
