Background Checks Stop Nothing

So, a dude with a previous conviction for a violent felony managed to pass a background check for an Illinois Firearm Owner ID card, and managed to pass a NICS check to purchase a handgun, and it wasn't until they ran his prints when he was applying for an Illinois toter's permit that the previous conviction turned up.So they denied him the permit and sent him a letter asking him to pretty please hand the gun over.Instead, he took the gun to his job and shot up the meeting where they were firing...

Minimalist Bedroom: A Teen’s DIY Story

My 13-year-old daughter wanted to design her own minimalist bedroom, and she knew exactly what she wanted. She asked for paint – charcoal and white, and a new night table. She invited a couple friends over for a painting slumber party, and arranged to get a new queen sized bed from a neighbor who was […] The post Minimalist Bedroom: A Teen’s DIY Story appeared first on Your home, only better..

7 Daily Habits for an Organized Home with Free Printable Habit Trackers

Hello, I hope you all are having a great weekend. I’ve written many times about how my organized life is a direct result of daily habits. I have a bit of a squirrel mentality so I’m prone to getting easily distracted. Plus I tend to be on the lazy side. So I have learned over the years that what works for me is implementing daily habitual routines to keep me on track. Basically once these habits are in place I don’t really have to think about them anymore or be worried that I’ll get distracted...

How to read fiction to build a startup

“The book itself is a curious artefact, not showy in its technology but complex and extremely efficient: a really neat little device, compact, often very pleasant to look at and handle, that can last decades, even centuries. It doesn’t have to be plugged in, activated, or performed by a machine; all it needs is light, a human eye, and a human mind. It is not one of a kind, and it is not ephemeral. It lasts. It is reliable. If a book told you something when you were 15, it will tell it to you aga...

Tools Reasons/Benefits to Jailbreak a Kindle in 2019

Hi, I own a Kindle Voyage I decided to jailbreak years ago, and at the end I realize that I barely used any advantages of this jailbreak. I'm about to receive a new PW4, and I'm debating the idea of jailbreaking it, just in case. But at the same time, why would I bother, when at the end I find that the Kindles firmwares are getting better / including functionalities that would probably require a jailbreak before (I'm thinking of customs fonts). So I'm curious to know the reasons people have...

Boox Note utility/workaround application

I'm considering creating an application specifically for Boox Note, Max and perhaps Likebook Mimas with the purpose of working around some of the shortcomings/bugs in the software of these devices that Onyx is slow or indifferent about addressing. This would be a background application (with limited or no interaction with the built-in software) mostly only automating various tasks that you set up. What kind of problems do you have that could be fixed with a system like this? The thing I am not l...

Growing The Earliest Blooms: The Challenge Continues

I n my quest to extend the gardening season by growing very early and very late blooming plants, I have begun growing “spring”-blooming* witch hazels. In 2017 I planted ‘Ripe Corn,’ ‘Orange Encore,’ and ‘Birgit’–all Hamamelis x intermedia (hybrids of H. japonica crossed with H. mollis). Only ‘Birgit’ is alive; the other two were eaten during the winter. Last year I planted ‘Pallida,’ ‘Diane,’ and H. vernalis. The vernal witch hazel, as H. vernalis is called, is native to southeastern United St...
