Bernie Mayhem ~ VIDEO

Political Humor USA –-(Ammoland.com)- Bernie Mayhem. No matter what the haters and socialists throw at him President Trump keeps on coming back and winning. Are you sick of winning yet? “It’s funny, sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is, that people are lining up for food. That is a good thing! In other countries people don’t line up for food: the rich get the food and the poor starve to death.” ~ Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) Did you enjoy this funny video? Sign up f...

The First Blooms of 2019

D esperate times call for desperate measures. And who is more desperate than the cold climate gardener who’s been inundated with social media images of spring flowers blooming in warmer climates? Thank goodness my “desperate measures” are already in place. I’ve been planting early blooming bulbs where the snow melts first for several years. And every time the snow starts to melt, I check all those places for signs of emerging sprouts. Yes, I check during every thaw, even the January and Febr...

As Seen On TFB: The Best Of Week 11, 2019

Good evening TFB fans. Hopefully you all had a chance to get out on the range and do some shooting this weekend. As winter passes through the rear view mirror here in the northern hemisphere, warmer weather should help us get back behind the sights (or glass) and dust off our skill sets. Looking ahead […] Read More … The post As Seen On TFB: The Best Of Week 11, 2019 appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

What are your adjacent business opportunities?

More often than not, the best growth and disruption opportunities can be found in some of the most unexpected places. We get so hung up studying our direct competitors that we completely lose sight of a potential marketplace newcomer who isn't just out to protect the status quo. I find it's best to look beyond your obvious competitors and consider what's going on in adjacent markets. I recently had an opportunity to do just that and it resulted in me advocating and leading the due diligence for ...

Legendary surf rock guitarist Dick Dale, RIP

Dick Dale, the "King of the Surf Guitar," has died at age 81. RIP, maestro. Dale's pioneering sound was inspired by his Lebanese uncle who played the oud and taught him the tarabaki, a goblet-shaped drum. His 1961 instrumental "Let's Go Trippin'," recorded with his band The Del-Tones, sparked the surf rock genre that spawned the Beach Boys. From The Guardian: Born Richard Anthony Monsour in May 1937, Dale developed his distinctive sound by adding to instrumental rock influences from his Mi...

Regenerate Covers

Hi, I appear to have lost over 3/4 of my eBook covers from Calibre. Any new books I add I get a cover. I realise that I can probably download a cover for each book individually but is there a way of regenerating the missing covers as a batch automated process? Thanks as always, jB :cool:

Weekend Reading

It’s officially spring break for me and I’m spending this week in Hawaii with Matt and the kids. We’re vacationing on the Big Island and it’s the one Hawaiian island I haven’t explored so I’m excited to get out and about! I’ll be sharing on Insta of course, and please email or message me if you have a favorite spot here, I’d love to know! I’m not sure I’ll have much time for blogging this week, but being on this island might inspire something related to tropical style! Stay tuned! Meanwhile, her...

‘Captain Marvel’ Favorite Goose the Cat Gets the Purrfect Funko POP Figures

Captain Marvel is only in its second weekend at the box office (which added considerably more cash to the movie’s haul), but it’s already a certified hit. Even though Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn are the stars, there’s one breakout character that fans can’t get enough of, and they’re not human. It’s Goose the cat, and the little feline is getting a pair of new Funko POP figures that fans of Captain Marvel are going to love. But if you want to see them, beware of spoilers. ...

K5 Backing Kindle Touch up before upgrading firmware

Because of lack of suggestions to fix Kindle Touch slowdown, I decided to upgrade firmware to the latest official Amazon version. First I'll upgrade from 5.1.2 to 5.3.2.1. If this doesn't help, I'll upgrade further to 5.3.7.3. I'd like to have an option to downgrade back to 5.1.2 if the upgrade causes more issues than it solves. How can I back up my Kindle?

Kindle deactivation by Amazon. Can i still use it?

How boring was life in the British Empire?

Boredom is a pervasive problem. Teenagers suffer from it. Workers are afflicted by it. Psychologists research it. Academic conferences are devoted to it. There is even evidence that you can die of it. And while there are those who claim that boredom can foster creativity, many people would rather give themselves an electric shock than be bored.The word itself was not used until the mid-nineteenth century (in Charles Dickens’ Bleak House). The feeling, however, saw increased expression beginning ...

Glo Kobo Glo N613 - Faulty battery symptoms and battery retrofit/replacement

Hello all, I have been a kobo glo user for about 5 years and have been happy with it. So recently I bought a second hand kobo glo for my wife on ebay, which according the dishonest seller was "working perfectly". Once I received the item I charged it for a few hours and began the syncing or updating to the latest firmware. I first tried updating it using wireless, however, whether it was connected to power or not, it would soon freeze, say at 10% of downloading, and would not turn back on unl...

Boyue Likebook Mimas (T103D) 10.3': Two Problems

Hello! Received my Likebook yesterday. Two issues. First, the thing is reading the time settings 12 hours off. As such, it being now 09:23, it's reading 21:23. In 12 hours, it will show 21:23, when it will be actually 09:23. Wifi is connected. I see no settings dealing with the clock. Second, dealing with the Apps. When I select Apps at the Home position, all that comes up is a list of the wifi scans. Yesterday I was able to find a list of the 11 apps available, but the process of arri...

Correct format for author name in metadata

Hi, I belong to a volunteer group who produces ebooks from public domain material and have done thousands. We have been using Calibre to convert to different formats. My question is to do with metadata. We have found that a number of volunteers are adding metadata for creator (the original author) in the format "firstname lastname" and a number in the format "lastname, firstname". And then some will be an organisation. We have realised that we don't actually know which is correct and works be...

8 legged Rolling Stool by Wendy Andreu

The 8 Legged Stools on Wheels are made following the idea of absurd complexity. The function of the object is emphasized by over exaggerating its features. The 8 legs bring a certain heaviness to the piece that needs to be carried by wheels. The sculptural stools are carefully handcrafted in steel, and patinated following two types of hues: Black Shaded color way and Decay color way. Weny Andreu was born in 1990 in Oloron-Ste-Marie, France. She graduated Cum Laude from Design Academy Eindhov...

Alternative to Calibre Companion (non WIFI-based)?

Hello everyone =) I've used Calibre Companion on my smartphone for a while now and it is a really great app. I love that it shows all the custumn columns and it really helps me to keep track if/when I read a book. Sadly with our buggy WIFI at home the wireless connection with calibre often fails or gets disconnected shortly after the booklist began loading. Sometimes it 'only' takes a few tries to get the metadata synced or new books on my phone, sometimes it won't work even then and I can on...
