A Frame Cabin Tours

Who dreams of a cabin in the woods? (Me, raising hand.) I’ve spent a few vacations in an A frame cabin in Lake Tahoe, so this style of cabin has always appealed to me. A frame cabins were extremely popular from the 1950s to the 1970s as vacation getaways that allowed informal entertaining and an easygoing lifestyle. The A frame’s basic design made it more economical to build. It has a distinctive peaked roof that stretches from the rafters to the ground and horizontal cross beams that stabilize ...

Democrat Feeding Frenzy on Guns Gives GOP Chance to Quell Self-Created Doubts

Trying to simplify my work flow (confused about the heading/language again)

I'm tired of having to tweak all this minutia, so when Turtle91 suggested an epub template, I was like, Yeah, I'm in. So I set it up and when I need to (like adding the "AboutTheAuthor" html, which is always the same) add something I'll just copy and paste what I have between and into the template, which is Sigil's defaults. Is that good enough? Because a while back I went through the heading and changed all the language stuff. Adding this: instead of this: Putting an ebook togethe...

Avalow wants to be your gardening coach

What’s the opposite of a green thumb? Whatever it is, I have that. My house and yard are full of succulents not because they’re trendy, but because anything else I try to plant dies within a month. When I turn to Google to figure out why my zucchini plant randomly turned white and fell over (did I over water it? Under water it? Plant it on the wrong side of my house? Look at it the wrong way too many times?), I fall into a rabbit hole of forum posts with a million different answers, get overwhel...

This Day in History: Savage 99 is Patented

The Savage Model 99 was available in a variety of different calibers and configurations. (Rock Island Auction Co) U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- On October 3, 1899, Arthur Savage received US patent number 63,4034 for a firearm that would become known as the Savage Model 99. I’d be willing to bet that Mr. Savage was relieved when the patent was finally approved, since he had originally filed it almost a year and a half earlier on April 21, 1897. With the Model 99, Savage had improved on his previous...

Bela Lamps by Doshi Levien for Kettal

When Doshi Levien designed Bela ropes, an outdoor material for Kettal, the designer had a hunch that the handwoven material could be applied to other products. This was back in 2017. Now, two years later, Levien has created a line of lamps for the outdoor furnishings company using the same materials. Called Bela Lamps, the range of table and floor lamps was designed to be both colorful and versatile. A handle makes it possible to hang the lamp, or it can be set on a flat surface. ...

H5 link got into each chapter of TOC somehow

I just found this: Code: at the end of each of my chapters of an ebook of mine. Fortunately, nothing shows up on the Kindle. I went to the TOC and all the H5s are there, as well as the H2s for my chapter headings. Any idea how the H5s got in there? And so just go through the TOC and delete all the H5s? Or should I just leave them since they're not showing up on the Kindle? Thanks. Attached Thumbnails
