Fill Your Hands with Mud

  Mary Oliver is my comfort this gray winter. I have been reading and rereading her poem “Rice”since her death last month. I don’t want you just to sit down at the table. I don’t want you just to eat, and be content. I want you to walk out into the fields where the water is shining, and the rice has risen. I want you to stand there, far from the white tablecloth. I want you to fill your hands with mud, like a blessing.  I am not ready to fill my hands with cold mud. My alarm clock does not go ...

Kindle 90C6 no KUAL and should I update?

Hello! I got a Kindle 90C6 (KT2/Basic) from a thrift shop today running firmware 5.9.6.1. I followed this guide https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=267541 But KUAL does not show up when placed in the documents folder. Should I try again with this guide after a factory reset? https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/5_x_Jailbreak And after I get all this done, should I let it update with the newest FW? EDIT: running ;log mrpi in the search bar shows the "Hush little baby..." message, so my JB ...

Rebel on the Canal

Got lunch up in Broad Ripple proper today. I'd had a hankering for cheese enchiladas, but La Piedad is closed until Monday while they redo the flooring in the place. I fell back on Public Greens, where I had their delicious buttermilk-dredged fried chicken tenders and curried cauliflower salad.The rain still hadn't resumed after I'd finished eating, so I strolled down the Monon toward the canal. River House, a big "mixed use" development overlooking where the canal comes off the White River, ha...

POTD: Using a Horse as a Shooting Rest

I ran across this photo some time ago in a book, the title of which I cannot recall. The caption notes that the image is of a cavalry trooper armed with a Martini-Henry, taken in 1895, using his horse as a shooting rest. What’s remarkable to me is that the horse is so calm and […] Read More … The post POTD: Using a Horse as a Shooting Rest appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Is That Pro-Gun Quote Too Good to be True?

Opinion Sarah Brady, she never said that. United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- When we discussed how our support for the Second Amendment comes across, one of the items mentioned was the importance of maintaining your credibility. There are far too many in the media who seek to help in the cause of those who would take our freedoms away that would eagerly leap to paint us as liars or worse, thus depriving us of a key advantage, we have over the likes of Schumer, Feinstein, Bloomberg, and their i...

Before Wallis - Edward VIII's Other Women ~ Rachel Trethewey

First things first, I must now confess to a complete blank on the lineage of the House of Windsor. What a disgrace. Well, the early days of the House of Windsor that is, created in 1917 to break with any prior associations with Germany... but who exactly were the brothers and sisters, the children of King George V and Queen Mary? I've sorted it out now but I can't believe I had never really paid attention and understood the place of Dukes of Gloucester and Kent in the grand Windsor scheme o...

Kepub format questions

I've been hearing a few things about the Kobo .kepub format but cannot find a lot of information on it. * What features or capabilities, if any, do you get from .kepub on a Kobo device, that you wouldn't get from a Calibre-generated .epub file? * How do you 'convert' a liberated .epub file to the .kepub format? I don't see options for this in Calibre.

The Hard Task of Decluttering Books

The following is a guest post about the hard task of decluttering books from regular contributor, Kristin at The Gold Project . Over the past couple of years, I have been in nonstop decluttering mode. If I think about getting rid of something for too long, then out it goes. But, until recently, every time I moved to my book collection, my motivation stopped. In the back of my head I had the mindset that I am creating a library and I should keep every book I have read. But, the problem w...

Kindle DX screen. Can you connect to other models of Kindle motherboard?

I was wondering if it was possible to successfully connect the larger Kindle DX screen to the motherboard of any another Kindle model (e.g. K4NT) so that i could use the larger screen in a display project. I would like a jailbroken Kindle to be able to use any (possibly third party) bigger than 6" e-ink display. I am aware that some of the Kindle models have the chip that drives the screen mounted on the ribbon cable but i am not sure whether any of the cables would be a physical fit and i a...

How to Locate a Lost iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch With Siri

Misplacing an iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch can be infuriating, especially if you’re sure it’s around here somewhere, but just can’t put your hands on it. If you have Find my iPhone/iPad/Apple Watch active, ask Siri to find it for you. You’re probably already aware that you can find an iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch by using the Find my iPhone app, but there’s an altogether cooler, more friction-free way of doing it. Asking Siri to “find my iPhone” or other device is a quick way to do exactly that...
