New Mexico turns to People to Overturn Anti-Second Amendment Law

New Mexico Take Action U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- New Mexico Second Amendment supporters are doing more than passing Second Amendment sanctuary resolutions. The New Mexico Republicans are leading a movement to repeal the offending law using the power of the people. New Mexico has a provision in its Constitution, rather similar to that in Switzerland. If the legislature passes a law offensive to the people, they can demand a referendum be held. If the law is not approved of in the referendum, the...

Evergreens in Stock Now – Just BUY Them

I stopped by my favorite independent garden center yesterday to see what’s in stock and honestly, just to be among beautiful plants – green ones – and I wasn’t disappointed. The shrub department looked ready for spring already, and truckloads are still arriving as I type. (I may go back this weekend to see what the truck from conifer specialist Iseli Nursery in Oregon delivers; I visited once and was duly wow’ed.) Seeing nurseries and gardens in mid-March, just before they erupt with color, ma...

Yesterday’s Scandal, Today’s Mandate: Antis Embraces Operation Choke Point as Policy

Opinion U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- On Tuesday, U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) unabashedly embraced the tactics behind one of the most shameful policies of the Obama era, openly using the guise of her federal authority to berate and not so subtly threaten a bank for lawfully serving businesses that don’t reflect her political views. While the media did their best to protect Barack Obama and his administration from any hint of scandal, two gun related issues man...

Review | All the Walls of Belfast by Sarah J. Carlson

I have had a string of lovely successes with contemporaries lately. I wonder, sometimes, about the phases we go through, both in reading and in life in general and whether or not (or where) they align. I'm not always able to see the patterns amid the daily vicissitudes, but I wonder about them often. Several months ago, I saw the cover for Sarah J. Carlson's debut novel  and thought I might have died and gone direct to heaven. The title alone is my favorite of the year, hands down. I don't eve...

How to Reopen Closed Tabs and Windows in Safari on a Mac

Did you just close a Safari tab or window? No problem—you can get it back. Like all modern web browsers, Apple’s Safari for Mac can reopen a closed tab or window—as long as you weren’t browsing privately. Tabbed browsing is perhaps the best thing to come to the internet since Keyboard Cat, and if you’re anything like us you probably have more tabs open than you can ever remember looking at. That unfortunately sometimes leads to what we like to call “The Purge”—a cleanup of tabs that invariably ...

Docking issue

For the past few days the editor seems to have odd docking behaviour. I used to have File Preview and Saved searches share the same docking area, both visible at the same time. Now they overlay each other and have tabs to switch the view. I find this very awkward and can't seem to correct it. Have I done something silly and can I correct it? TIA
