Satellite View

Noodling around the satellite view in Google Maps for interesting driving routes to and from the general Philadelphia area, I detoured the camera south for an aerial look at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds just across the state line.There on the grounds of the proving grounds is Phillips Army Airfield, which has an interesting little boneyard in its southwest corner. There are a bunch of A-7's, C-12's, U-8's, all manner of helicopters, a lonely C-123, various other stuff, and...hello...what's this...

Back to the garden

Set for a small daytime NYE gathering Is there anyone else whose tolerance for frigid temps has risen significantly this winter? In the cold climate zones of the US, people are finding ways to get out of the house safely, either with the family unit or even with others. For me, that doesn’t mean indoor restaurant dining or shopping. It does mean taking advantage of the winter beauty found in nearby nature preserves and parks. I wrote about that recently.  And then there is the opportunity for...

After 6.1 upgrade page numbers off

A book that was 577 pages in firmware 5.19.1055 is now 989 pages in firmware 6.1.900. The 577 is the ePub page numbering that shows up across eReaders. Is there way to make the HD3 (with 6.1.x firmware) display the right number? I'm using built-in numbering, not the page per screen setting. If not I'll have to revert to 5.19.832. I like consistency.

A Year at Brandywine Cottage: Book Review

I t’s the middle of January, and I’m hungry for spring. Spring won’t come for another couple of months in my climate, so I whet my appetite with inspirational gardening books. One of my favorites is The Layered Garden (aff. link) by David Culp. I reviewed that book seven years ago and it’s still one of my all-time favorites. I re-read it at least once a year, and often more frequently, for the gorgeous photographs and the exuberant love of gardening that comes through in the writing. What...

Rate of Airline Passengers Caught With Firearms Doubles in 2020

Rate of Airline Passengers Caught With Firearms Doubles in 2020 Washington, D.C. –-(Ammoland.com)- Airlines have been hit hard with a steep drop in passengers, with Americans traveling less than they have in years due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. With fewer people in the country flying, you would think guns confiscated at airports would be at an all-time low rate, but that isn’t the case. According to a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) press release, the agency found firearms at doub...

Excuse-Making for Pfleger Illustrates Gulf Between Media and Normal People

Adding requests to calibre?

Hi, I'm trying to convert cal2ky3 plugin to python3, because it's awesome and the author hasn't been active for a while.

Rhode Island: First Anti-Gun Bill Of 2021 Session Introduced

Rhode Island introduces their first anti-gun ban of the year. IMG NRA-ILA U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Ocean State gun owners have grown accustomed to battling against a wave of gun control each session, and it appears the COVID pandemic is not going to alter that trend in 2021. Senate Bill 73 was recently introduced by Senate President Dominick Ruggerio, and this bill would prohibit concealed carry at K-12 schools and create yet another “gun-free zone.”  These artificial boundaries do nothing exce...

"Telling Didion that 'having a pretty place to work is important to a man,' Nancy Reagan fills an apothecary jar with hard candies for his desk..."

"... carpets the floors of the State Capitol 'in a pleasing shade of green,' Didion writes. (What green carpet, Didion’s deadpan delivery invites us to ask, has ever been 'pleasing'?) Didion’s understated tone registers the nuances obscured by the quotidian: the stiff neutrality between mother and son ('The Skipper’s arrival is, I have been told, the pivotal point of Nancy Reagan’s day'), Nancy’s preference for little choreographies... As [Didion] puts it in her 1976 essay 'Why I Write': 'I writ...

How to zoom

Hello ! I've been searching for hours how I could zoom when I read a pdf or any image based book. I feel stupid because I don't see any answer on that on the web, so I guess everyone has found the way ^^; Still, this reader is clearly awesome, but considering I read a lot of pdf depicting tiny things ( like knitting schemes ), it would help a lot if I could find a way to zoom. Thanks in advance !
