Interchangeable Charming Choker

I was wanting a necklace to help me keep track of a key to a “treasure” box, made it but then I realized it might not need something to hold the key yet but I had the choker and charms to help dazzle it up. So here we are! I’m also happy because I saw a video of one of my favorite YouTube series (something scary) at the time and it mentioned in the episode “killer threads” a choker/necklace with a clover on it! I didn’t realize it until the clover charm was dangling from the choker! I’m so thri...

Where are images stored in Calibre?

Hello all, I'm working on an ebook in Word/DOCX, then converting to epub format with Calibre, and it's working really really well, with the exception of the images. Even though I have disabled Word's "Image Size and Quality" processing, it is still messing with the images, visibly degrading them.

TTS possible on jailbroken Oasis?

My old Kindle Touch has a neat, easy to access, text to speech feature. I'd like it to allow manual page turns, but other than that, its pretty great. My Kindle Oasis "VoiceView" feature, on the other hand, is virtually unusable by comparison. Is it possible to get the "Turn on text to speech" feature on my Kindle Oasis? I understand I'd have to jailbreak my kindle, if its remotely possible at all. Thanks in advance.

Big Boys

For all the times when Huck would pounce on Rannie, hoping she would play, and Bobbi and I would muse to each other that what Huck needed was a young and spry tom who was just eager to play all the time, Holden's arrival has taken some getting used to.I'll be sitting here at my desk in the office and hearing the thumps and bangs of two big tomcats rasslin' around in the hallway......and when I stand up with a spray bottle in my hand and lean into the hall to see what's up and what sort of fight ...
