Newbie terrarium advice: Leave it to the experts

Johanna Dominguez of Put a Plant on It, planted this terrarium for me, my second. Happy new year! I’m celebrating by embracing a new terrarium. I’m somewhat confident because I have one already that I’ve kept going for more than a dozen years. I say somewhat because I personally did not plant either of the large terrariums now in the house, one a Victorian cloche on a pedestal (shown below) and the other, the new one, a large globe (shown with its creator, Johanna Dominguez, above). Though I’...

Future Imperfect, Tense

Let's see if it works...

Behold the "Diesel Leica", so called because of its bulk, Brutalist styling, and baroque mechanicals. It's the camera that almost bankrupted Leitz! I have it loaded with Ilford XP2, an ISO 400 black & white film that's developed using the C-41 color process. This means I can have it done on-site at Roberts downtown. Or, I guess, if you didn't mind not getting your negatives back, you could drop it off at a CVS or Walgreens. Of course, getting the negatives back is kinda the whole point of sho...

Return of the Room Divider

I read an article the other day that stated the one design style everyone was saying goodbye to was open concept living spaces, where the kitchen, dining, and living are all one. A major impact of the pandemic is the need for private or semiprivate spaces in shared homes where people can retreat for solitude. When our public schools closed and all the learning went online, my teenage son needed privacy for his classes, so I hung curtains in the open doorway of the downstairs study so he could at...

TFB Review: Apex Tactical Action Enhancement Trigger for Springfield Hellcat

The Springfield Armory Hellcat has been a supremely popular pistol ever since its introduction into the world less than 2 years ago – and for good reasons. It is the world’s highest capacity, micro-compact on the market for people who want a smaller gun for carry, but do not want to sacrifice their round-count to […] Read More … The post TFB Review: Apex Tactical Action Enhancement Trigger for Springfield Hellcat appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Pleasings...

'Relentlessly Optimistic of Devon Here', let's focus on good things shall we. Do you know whenever I look at this picture I can still feel that little owlet's plumpness and its heart beating, and the softness of those downy feathers. Our barn owl is still in residence and has taken to perching on the summerhouse verandah where we have a delightful spattered sea of white guano and heaps of pellets. I hope you are all keeping chins up and looking upwards too There's a big sky to be seen out th...

Kindle, Calibre, 94yo, 1000 miles apart

Hello, We use Calibre and have worked to get most of our library in digital format (in either ePub or mobi and obviously, either can be converted to the other format). I primarily use my iPad to read and I'm a tech geek. Here is my situation. My 94-year-old mother-in-law lived over 1K miles away in an assisted living retirement apartment complex. Due to crazy high spiking CV19, they are back in full lockdown (which obviously makes sense). But she's struggling. She can't see anyone, she has no...

Using Onyx Book primarily as an e-reading device

Having become extremely frustrated with a Kobo that seems to be gradually deteriorating, I have to consider some other device. The Boox line seems very full-featured albeit at noticeably higher prices. So far the Boox reviews I've seen spend a lot of time on the sketching and note-taking features, the pen, the UI, sundry bells and whistles, and so forth. I have yet to find a review that focuses mostly (or only) on the nuts-’n’-bolts of using a Boox device as an e-reader. If there's someone her...

Kamala's Way: A new biography explores how Harris played Trump's game, using confidence and unapologetic ambition to grab the spotlight

"Kamala Harris comes to play every day," said Oregon senator Ron Wyden. Carolyn Kaster/AP Photos The following is an exclusive excerpt from Kamala's Way, a new biography by Dan Morain. In it, he explores how the first female VP "rose above the din" in Washington, where her unapologetic ambition and focus made her a star. "She cooks. She shares recipes. She invites senators over for small dinners. She wears Chuck Taylors. She has an interesting family. She loves basketball," is how one Sena...

Rep. Boebert Condemns Violence and Highlights Democrat Hypocrisy

Rep. Boebert Condemns Violence and Highlights Democrat Hypocrisy WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (CO-03) released the following statement: “We should take Democrats at their word when they say never let a crisis go to waste. Their hypocrisy is on full display with talks of impeachment, censure, and other ways to punish Republicans for false accusations of inciting the type of violence they have so frequently and transparently supported in the past,” said Congresswomen Lauren Boe...

Can I run both 4.23 and 5.x on Mac?

I've held off updating my Calibre installation from 4.23 to 5.x for plugin reasons. Mostly, I read epubs in KOReader on a Kobo device, so I don't need the KePub features, don't have an enormous library by MobileRead standards. I'm not a heavy user, though I like using the editor to clean up CSS and I edit metadata for most everything that passes through it. Those things, I realize, are not that affected by the Python 3 upgrade. I'm using it on a Mac. I gather that the portable version is Window...

Keep Buying Guns And Ammo, Wherever You Find Them

Opinion by Alan J Chwick & Joanne D Eisen Keep Buying Guns And Ammo, Wherever You Find Them USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- The US Congress and Vice-President Pence, on January 6, 2021, willfully, almost joyfully, permitted the theft of our country by socialists. The great majority of elected officials, the Main Street Media, the Judicial Branch, the President’s assistants and confidants – all caved without shame to the thieves.
