Automotif CXCIV...

'62-'65 Austin-Healey Sprite Mark II I was sitting at my table in front of 20 Tap when this car stopped at the light, northbound on College. I scooped up my camera and left all my stuff sitting on the table to get a bit further south, hoping to get a clear photo. The driver saw me on the sidewalk with my camera and nudged his kid, pointing at me as the light turned green. The kid waved, smiling, and I waved back as I one-handed the camera, remembering riding around the neighborhood with my ...

Too shy to dance

When I was an adolescent I envied the great ballerinos among the kids on the block, and pretended I had other things to do at parties — like having a conversation. But in fact I was terrified of looking ridiculous, and because of that I would not risk a single step. Until one day a […]

Location in book and page numbers

Hello all Here's something that has me completely fluthered: I have two Kindles - an Oasis 2 and a Paperwhite 4. I keep the Oasis for home use and - due to it's smaller size - the Paperwhite often gets carried around in my pocket. I have recently discovered that whilst I prefer books to display page numbers some of my books will only show the location in the book, but - and here's the rub these are the same titles, imported directly to the eReaders from Calibre, often within a minute or two o...

Stop the "preparing book for first read" notice?

My kid would really like to not see the 'preparing book for first read' notice. I've poked the preferences, tried using the portable viewer, and done other things, such as look at the human readable config files, but I don't see a way to either tell Calibre not to show it, or get rid of it myself. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks

New install for old user need to know "must have" plugins

Hi all. I think this is where I should be. I had not upgraded my calibre for a couple of years because my desktop is not functioning. Got fed up and finally installed it on my amd laptop although it is a pain to be down to 8 gig ram. My problem? I have not kept up for almost 2 years on the plugins and I used a lot of them regularly. I would like to have a "Must Have" list of plugins for a user who has a library of over 300,000 "books" (we could also say books and documents). I used to clean u...

CAGE OF BONES horror collection 99 Cents!

https://www.amazon.com/Cage-Bones-Ot.../dp/B00EAOU7Z0 Cage of Bones was my first book, released in hardcover in 2000 by Delirium Books, and featured 20 stories of horror, the macabre and even a touch of sci-fi. Most of these stories were previously published in a variety of magazines and anthologies in the 1990s. It includes one of my most popular stories – "Pumpkin Head" – as well as one of my more extreme – "The Mouth" – and one of my favorite pieces to read aloud at live events –"Bloodros...

A Blue Merman for November

I am planning to work on tattooed people for a while- probably up to the New Year. I have a lot already dyed and sewed up so now I get to focus on the fun part! First up is some Mermen. His very light hair didn’t show up very well in the photos. Here is a view from the other side. Kelp on his chest and arms and a sea glass button. I picked a very dark variegated thread to embroider onto the rick rack- it plays on the dark red-purple and black of the fins.. ...

Fbreader ios vs android tap zones

I'm trying to use fbreader on an android tablet. Am I missing something tap zones can only be configured in ios? Android only allows page forward in EITHER left OR right. Is that corrected in the $version? I don't want to buy the pro version unless I can tap both left and right for page forward.

Meopta Optika5 – Long Range Performance Without the Price

The Meopta Optika5 offers a great balance of performance and affordability. IMG Meopta U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- There are lots of good riflescopes on the market these days. Asian optics-makers have literally flooded the market with them; however, our preference still rests with either American-made or European made scopes because of their superior glass. With that bit of bias out of the way, the question now is how to truly test a new scope for functionality. The answer for us was simple… give ...

Hudson H9, A Failure On Multiple Fronts – Review

Hudson H9, A Failure On Multiple Fronts U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- I want to be upfront before we dive into the Hudson H9 review. The Hudson H9 captured my attention to the point that I overlooked the fact that it wasn't ideal for any practical, competition, or even defensive use. Normally my purchases are reasonably pragmatic, but I ignored logic and bought one of these 9mm disappointments like many others. Disclaimer: I never received a gun from Hudson for testing but purchased the pistol for ...

Can't bookmark over page borders

Hi I'm just getting frustrated about the bookmark experience on Kobo Libra H20 (4.25.x) and hope anyone can guide me to a better experience. I can bookmark at ease any sentence in a book while I do not go over page boundaries. The specific problems are: 1. invisible marks: whenever I mark a sentence up to the end of a page, the marked part is no longer highlighted as such. Still the pop-up menu confirms that the marking has been done. And the notebook does the same. But why can't I see it? Attac...

Finding autumn…and art: A Letter to The Midwest

Dear Scott, Thanks for your letter of 16 November.  A good and thoughtful letter, which had me laughing.  I wish you two lived closer so I could have a dose of that humor around our dinner table.  I believe the table is six foot from one end to the other, so if you and Michele took one end and Mike and I took the other, and we threw the vol au vents back and forth after a quick spritz of Clorox, we’d still be following guidelines. We’d be happy for the company. My favorite part of autumn – frien...
