Pencil Box To Jewelry Box!

I made this out of a pencil box I found At work that was completely ruined. I mean the keys were missing, the lining was torn and the netting that you keep your pencils in was completely destroyed. So I took it home unlocked it, (It helped that I had a key from the same kind of box I already owned) and I made it into this jewelry box! I’m still trying to decide how I want to decorate the top but I live the end result so far. I’m so proud of myself [Author: Kinhime Dragon]

Horror Stoker, Bram: The Lair of the White Worm (1911); v1; 9 April 2020

Bram Stoker's last book, inspired by the Brampton Worm legend. This is the 1911 first edition, which contained 6 colour illustrations by occult artist Pamela Colman Smith (1878-1951). As Smith's work is not yet in L+70 PD, her illustrations have been omitted. The story takes place in 1860, with some weird goings-on at the Caswell estate, known as Castra Regis. There is someone trying to revive mesmerism to influence young women; livestock and at least one child have vanished mysteriously. Adam ...

Download older version of Calibre

Hi, in the last version of Calibre viewer the variables used by a html file are "shared" with all the other html files in the ebook. This causes a lot of trouble in EPUB3 books. Is there a way to download the previous version of Calibre viewer? What is the last one version before this new viewer? Thank you Fabrizio

Kindle plugin for InDesign CC

Does anyone know of a Kindle plugin for InDesign CC? Calibre cannot handle my conversions from epub (because of embedded fonts) and the old Kindle plugin for InDesign CS6 doesn't work on CC versions. I have tried other converters, by the way, but none of them are even as good as Calibre.

Rifle Sling Positions: Low and High Carry

The purpose of carry positions is to have your gun readily accessible, but the scenario prevents direct use. This means you are not in a position to point your weapon at a known threat or place a threat could present itself from, without first moving to a better position. An example would be in a […] Read More … The post Rifle Sling Positions: Low and High Carry appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Bibliocrack Review | Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater

I haven't wanted to talk about this. With anyone. But I think I probably need to. That like Georgina, I need to use my words to break the curse. I think that like Sam, I need to believe in my cure. So I'm going to talk about it here, and maybe you can help. Since pandemic type things got real in my neck of the woods, I haven't been able to read. I haven't been able to reread.

Education Quote of the Day

Seen at Instapundit by Robert E. Wright of the American Institute for Economic Research:As I recently argued elsewhere, America’s educational system has not prepared us for the government power grab because it does not create enough Emersonian independent thinkers or, frankly, even adult thinkers. Due to the extreme Left bias of higher education, many of America’s college graduates remain intellectually infantilized to the point that they can do little more than Tweet ignorant hate at any idea t...
