Picnic Ready

I’m meeting my best friend from college on Thursday, we’re headed to Napa for a picnic and to soak up some sunshine since spring as finally arrived. Relaxing with wine and good conversation is just about the best thing in life and I’m looking forward to catching up with her, we haven’t seen each other in over a year. Picnics on a warm day also make for a great date! Grab your sweetheart, pack a few edibles, and head into the great outdoors for some sunshine and laughter. Are you picnic ready? ...

Swalwell Agenda Goes Beyond a Ban

Anti-gun California Congressman Eric Swalwell has launched a presidential campaign with gun control as a central theme. (Screen snip, YouTube, The Late Show) California/United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- We’ve discussed Eric Swalwell before, but it’s worth taking another look, given that the Congressman from California announced he’s running for President on Stephen Colbert’s show. He picked a friendly venue to make that announcement, but he’s now going further than that. Swalwell is most notor...

Feature request?

I'm not sure where else to post this. Please move it elsewhere if it doesn't belong here. @Koval, can you make a generate cover from existing files? There are instances where I update an epub, azw3, mobi, etc (which have new covers) and I want the new metadata to update the cover from the new file. Also, can you add a "View" button in the "Edit Metadata" window. I guess this will be useful for when I add multiple files and want to see how they are before I commit the changes. Or rather, can you ...

Stevie Wonder’s Call for Laws after Nipsey Hussle Murder Shows He’s Blind on Guns

What “stronger laws” demanded by Stevie Wonder would have prevented Nipsy Hussle's murder?

POTD: Czech Side-by-side Shotgun

Stop scaring the gardeners

These are among the perennials I am enjoying now. You can bet I am cutting away old stalks and raking away debris so I can see them. It’s not that there isn’t plenty to feel bad about these days. Occurrences like yesterday’s horrific fire at Notre Dame cast such a dark pall that it’s easy to be tempted into end-times gloom and despair. Which is all the more reason that we need to find hope and happiness in the small miracles of nature that we find in our gardens. We need to feel enthusiastic ...

Unmatch books from device

I know you can correctly match books on a device to the Calibre library manually but is it possible to simply un match a book? Also, are there any tweaks available for book matching aside from simply title/author (e.g. mobi-asin, etc)?

But your caliber sucks

Word: We can get that terminal performance of a 9mm projectile pretty much up on par with that of a .40, up on par with that of a .45. Dont get sidetracked by the caliber. Buy the best projectile you possibly can and shoot the caliber that you are good with. And then the thing that overrides all of them, it has to work. Its got to be reliable.

Other Fiction Pasqué, Ernst: Drei Gesellen V.1 [German] 16.04.2019

Ernst Heinrich Anton Pasqué (* 3. September 1821 in Köln; † 20. März 1892 in Alsbach an der Bergstraße) war ein deutscher Opernsänger (Bariton), Opernregisseur, Theaterleiter, Schriftsteller und Librettist (aus Wikipedia).

Bill to Allow School Districts & Teachers to Protect Children Moves to Senate

Argyle Independent School District Armed Staff Signs U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- An Oklahoma bill to allow school boards to more easily protect their schools against armed attack is another step closer to passage.  Several schools in Oklahoma already do so.

There were 72 votes for the bill, 25 against, and 4 excused. Oklahoma Senator David Bullard...

Get Back to Comfort

Ludovica and Roberto Palomba have teamed up with Poltrona Frau once again for the Get Back Sofa. This beautiful Beatles-inspired piece is stylish yet sedate. Sporting classical lines, expert tailoring, and the highest quality of materials, Get Back relishes in encouraging you to “Get Back to Where You Once Belonged,” which I assume is the cozy confines of a restful living room. A suspended frame and cast aluminum feet convey lightness, while up top the impression is all comfort...
