Versatile Daybeds in Every Style

I’m making use of my old home office as a study/guestroom and I’m adding a daybed under the window. In these circumstances I prefer daybeds that look less like beds and more like structured sofas, ones that can be layered with a few pillows during the day but made up as a bed whenever necessary. There are so many options and so many styles to choose from! I’m looking for something simple like this first one with very clean lines but I thought why not share all the ones I found with you!

Custom Font Issue

After spending hours looking for a condensed font with round a's and g's (the ones that look like balloons with sticks or strings), I settled on Futura Condensed. Fortunately, the zip folder contained the regular, italic, bold and italic bold versions. I unzipped, then put the individual font styles into the font folder on the kindle, as per normal. However, all the styles show when I'm choosing a font when using the reader. This isn't normal; usually only the main font name shows. I think this...

Under Red Flag laws your “due process” won't come for weeks or months after they have already confiscated all your firearms...

"The city's part of the deal will be paid for with an extension of the "innkeeper's tax," a few more pennies on the dollars that pay for hotel rooms. 'Cos what're visitors going to do if room rates go up, use some online service that presently doesn't pay that tax...? Oh, that's right, they might just do that. Better yet, local news sources are claiming "it won't cost taxpayers a dime;" taxpayers who vote in Marion County, that is."Bobbi notes the bizarre language created by trying to find a ...
