Richard Simmons Shout 8-inch Phunny Plush

Gary!!! Gary!!! Apparently, Kidrobot is the lone entity able to track down the ever-elusive Richard Simmons, as they have released the new Richard Simmons Shout 8-inch Phunny Plush . Unfortunately, it doesn't have a sound chip in there  to give you some of his inspirational catch phrases. But he is wearing those iconic short shorts and one of his glittery tank tops. You can currently pick on up for yourself for $11.99.

Automotif CXCIII...

My friend Michael sold his crossover SUV and got a sweet-looking Mustang EcoBoost with a six-speed manual. It's got Hurst shifter and he's been playing with the Roush catalog, too, I think. It seems amazing that the DOHC 2.3L four cylinder with a hairdryer bolted to the exhaust puts out almost a hundred horsepower more than the old pushrod 5.0, but it does. In Car and Driver's road test of the '94 GT back when it was new, the 215bhp SN95 put down a 6.1 second 0-60, and the same magazine wrung...

Thanks for the application. Just sharing experience. I am unable to open any MOBI files thus far using portable calibre. I will use the "Oxford Dictionary of English - Copy.mobi" for my example.

[Kindle Fire] How to send EPUBS

I am putting this questions in this thread as I do not know how to start a new one. I have an older model of a Kindle Fire - not sure what version but it works great. I have the Aldiko app on it. My problem is this - I want to send epub versions of my books as Aldiko can read them, but Calibre keeps wanting to convert them to either azw3, mobi or pdf. How do I get Calibre to send them as epubs??

Gave up on Oasis2 and got Kindle front LED

I got my Oasis2 back in January of 2018 and never really liked it. I didn't like the shape, and the way it was hard to hold. I believe part of that was due to me being a lefty. I also didn't like the battery life it never got anywhere close to the battery like I am use to. Amazon last week offered the Kindle for $59 and also a chance for me to do a trade in. I got $75 for my Oasis and I spend $80 and I got the Kindle without aids, and I also got a cover for the Kindle for a little over $5, and...

People stuck at home turned to gardening, and tomatoes and turnips are top sellers

By JOHN RABY In the year of the new coronavirus, when new gardeners came out in droves to try growing their own vegetables, tomatoes were still king. And in a twist, the respect-seeking turnip actually turned some heads. Seed companies taking stock of what went well and what came out of the woodwork proclaimed the tomato as their top seller this year. Specifically, at Burpee, the Bodacious Tomato was the best-selling vegetable seed. The company calls the large, disease-resistant but pricey hybri...
