Books: BIG Christmas Books

Deisgners are familiar with garden elements like ha-ha and folly, and they know the difference between an arbor and a pergola. As for styles, most of us can picture a tropical garden, a prairie garden, a Japanese garden and the like. But, in The Garden: Elements and Styles (Phaidon Press,... [Author: Jane Berger]

Garden Art: The Tempo in Tucson

My travels in Tucson yielded much to share when time permits.  For now, I'll tempt readers with two exceptional streetside vignettes that I photographed just down the street from the centrally located Arizona Inn. These artworks pointed to the generosity of local home owners. In sharing such creative artworks, they've  enhanced the surroundings for all who pass by.  I certainly wouldn't have guessed that taking a short stroll in the neighborhood would prove so gratifying. Perhaps you'll...

Seriously Stormy: Thornless Flowering Quince

Early Spring Bloomers... My garden boasts new blooming shrubs this Spring, in shades of scarlet and orange. Photo: Courtesy Proven Winners The shrubs are thornless varieties of Double Take flowering quince and they're proving to be an excellent addition to Alice's Garden.   Some time in May last year the plant shipment arrived, sent to me  by Proven Winners to trial.   I planted an "Orange Storm' in the enclosed front patio area and another in the main garden outside the fre...

Cybercrunk...

The gun reviewing gig ain't all Langdon Berettas and Wilson 1911s... " So we were playing poker in the Gentleman Loser when some street samurai figured he didn't like the way I was dealing... " It's silly and impractical and there are literally hundreds of better choices for personal protection, but a stubby little stainless derringer in 9x19mm has an oddball cyberpunk-esque appeal to it. .

Big manga reader- Which one do you recommend?

I’m looking to get a new e-reader, but am having some trouble choosing between one of the Onyx e-readers (probably the Nova2), Pocketbook Inkpad 3, or either the Kobo Libra H20 or the Kobo Forma. Whew. I have a couple of things I’m looking for, maybe you can read through them and help me decide? 1. Most of my collection is manga, so a larger screen size is important- over 7” would be fantastic. 2. I have my ebooks stored on a media server/NAS (I think I have that right, I’m not the one who ...

Trump, Jr. Head of NRA? ‘Fake News’ Says President’s Son…But Oh, the Uproar!

Donald Trump, Jr.–shown here at an NRA convention–has dismissed reports he is interested in becoming the associations new CEO. (Dave Workman photo) U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- A report at Business Insider asserting that Donald Trump Jr. “might weigh a run to take over as the head of the National Rifle Association as a way to stay involved in politics,” was dismissed as “fake news” by the younger Trump in a tweet, but it still set off a firestorm as other online news sources picked up the initial...

Screen inversion / Night mode

Just curious if anyone has managed to get this working on later Onyx devices running Android 9 or 10? I downloaded the hidden settings shortcut from the Play store, and used that to get into the accessibility settings on my Note2. In there is a 'Colour inversion' mode, which on my normal Android tablet will invert the screen when switched (same as night mode on the Kobo/Kindle). On the Onyx it does make the screen flicker when switched but then reverts to normal. (Strangely after I experimente...

Download Metadata - V4.x OK but NOT V5.x

When my Kobo could not connect to Calibre V4.23, I belatedly upgraded within the last week to Calibre V5.5 (and then 5.6) and the most recent plug-ins. HOWEVER, I am finding that the "download metadata" feature (available when right-click on multiple ePubs that are missing metadata) does not seem to work under V5.x. I can see the metadata when looking at "view log" but when I look at "review downloaded metadata" none of the information is shown and no update is made to the displayed metadata...

I also bought myself a kindle for Xmas. First one. I see all of her library in my list which is a pain because I really don’t wa...
