Keep Your friends Close, Keep Your Anemones Closer

I have a sentimental weakness for my children, and I spoiled them. I’m talking about my two masculine children, Tom and Fredo. And I had high hopes they would share my love and talent for athletics. Few plants looked as good whether planted as a single specimen or as an unruly mob as the fall blooming anemones. Buds are almost as lovely as the blooms. We moved to a bigger house in 1995 when they were seven and nine and needed some lawn for all the baseball, football, and soccer I expec...

To Permit Murder When One Could Have Prevented It Is Morally Wrong

On my various travels, I crossed paths with this quote. “…to permit murder when one could have prevented it is morally wrong. To allow a rape when one could have hindered it is an evil. To watch an act of cruelty to children without trying to intervene is morally inexcusable. In brief, not resisting evil is an evil of omission, and an evil of omission can be just as evil as an evil of commission. Any man who refuses to protect his wife and children against a violent intruder fails them morally” ...

Help with Master Flee Versions

E.T.A. Hoffmann's last book, so far as I can tell, was Master Flea. The first version was written in 1820, and contained satirical criticisms (based on a character named Karrpanti) on the German authorities for their actions after the Napoleonic wars. In order to avoid threats of imprisonment he withdrew this material from the published version of Master Flea.. This edited version is available in Project Gutenberg and the MobileRead library. I would very much like to produce the full original v...

The Stakes in 2020

The Stakes in 2020 United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- The 2020 presidential election may turn out to be one of the most momentous for the Second Amendment in history. The 2000 and 2004 elections mattered, as President George W. Bush brought in Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justice Samuel Alito, who provided two of the five votes in the Heller and McDonald cases. The 2016 election saved those cases – and President Donald Trump has brought in two more pro-Second Amendment justices. Now...

Multiple Questions

I've been using Calibre for a while but I'm moving machines and I feel like I knew how to do this before or meant to learn but can't remember so if I sound like an idiot I really do apologize in advance. I have a few questions, I don't really know python but I feel like I'm fairly capable of following instructions if that's needed. And if it's already answered somewhere I'd appreciate a point in the right direction because I've been searching for over an hour and can't find the answers to any o...

Kindle Fires $45 "and up," at Amazon.

It looks as though no one has mentioned this, yet. Amazon is offering Kindle Fire tablets for $49.99 "and up." I'll let Amazon's website do the rest of the talking. CORRECTION & ADDENDA: The email message that I received, about this offer, said that the Fire 7 is "starting at $49.99;" the comparison chart on the webpage that I cited above says "starting at" $49.99. However, the banner ad, on the aforementioned webpage, shows $39.99 for the Fire 7, with the $49.99 price marked through. Other Fire...

Inside the Creative Mind Behind Sharps Bros. – Interview with John Sharps

John Sharps U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- A couple of years back I was surfing the internet while sitting in the gun store, I owned at the time, and I saw something that blew my mind. It was the “Jack” by a company called Sharps Bros. The design was so aesthetically pleasing that I needed to find out more about the company, so I started rapidly search them out. It turns out this wasn't their only design. Sharps Bros. has other designs as well such as the “Hellbreaker” which is based on the P-40 Wa...

How to See All the Apps You’ve Purchased From the Mac App Store

The Mac App Store is in the midst of a revival, with Apple focusing on both it and the apps within it much more since the release of macOS Mojave in 2018. Want to use it more? Here’s how to find all your apps. It’s easy to forget that the Mac App Store has been around for a good while now, as few people took advantage of it for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it was just an awful app to use, and secondly, developers either never sold their apps via the Mac App Store, or removed them after conclud...
