Three More White House Garden Stories Already

Continuing our reporting on garden-related news about the First Family, something new has turned up about gardens the Bidens may have created or cared.  Bidens Added Family Heritage Garden at the Naval Observatory  Thanks to a story in Huffington Post, we get to see a garden the Bidens established there! The story is full of great photos of the home, too. The porch is to die for. This is the same VP quarters that VP Harris and her husband will be moving into after some renovations are complet...

how to view/filter library by series/series index

My Nova Pro is awesome but has one long-standing deficiency (for me): in the library view I can't view, filter or sort my books by series: I often want to read books in the same series, in a particular order, but can't always remember which title comes before the next: unfortunately I haven't found any way to configure the library viewer to show my this (series + series index) information or to interact with it. Short of installing another e-reader that has its own built-in library view, is the...

Series numbering: removing the 0 padding?

When putting 1.5 in a series index column, it automatically adds a zero to make it 1.50. Is there a way to make that stop? Doesn't seem to be anything in Tweaks. :thanks:

Browning Hi-Power: The Pistol That Served Nazis, FBI, SAS and Muammar Gaddafi

When you were a kid, did you ever dream about going back in time and fighting the nasty villains with modern weapons? Some AR-15s at the Alamo would surely change the situation. Even a crate of Springfield 1903s would really help to win the Revolutionary War. But in reality, when someone creates a firearm that […] Read More … The post Browning Hi-Power: The Pistol That Served Nazis, FBI, SAS and Muammar Gaddafi appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Wheelgun Wednesday: When is the 500 S&W Magnum Appropriate?

For this week on Wheelgun Wednesday, let’s jump down the rabbit hole of the .500 S&W Magnum cartridge. For most gun owners, it is the living personification of a meme. Simply, a huge flippin’ round that most people don’t know what to do with. For the longest time, the .44 Magnum was the greatest round […] Read More … The post Wheelgun Wednesday: When is the 500 S&W Magnum Appropriate? appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Column to keep track of Kindle Collections Manually

I have a lot of Kindle Collections in Amazon. I am able to create an importable list of the collection names and the book counts, and if I am feeling really ambitious, I can create a list of each book in each collection. I currently have a Kindle Collections text column shown in the browser, but now I want to add the book counts for the collections. Since this is going to be manually entered or entered using the import list I want to figure out which is the best way to do this. Any suggestio...

Gun Bans and Prior Restraints Being Sold as ‘Progress’ in Nevada

That none of this will even make a dent is not the issue, because it’s not about public safety. It’s about the elites enhancing their power, tightening their grip, and denying our rights. (Center for American Progress/Facebook) U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- The Center for American Progress presented “6 Policies to Reduce Gun Violence in Nevada” on Wednesday. Replete with footnotes to make it appear to be a serious study, it unsurprisingly shows itself to be another piece of Astroturf propaganda c...

Sorting seems to be off

Hi, I'm using calibre for a while now. But while looking for a book today I noticed something off with the sorting. I noticed it today, but the books involed where I noticed the problem are already in calibre for month, so the problem might be there longer. I have a book series named "The Hitman's guide" with 4 books (1, 2, 2.1, 3). I usually have my books sorted by title -> series -> authors. But Book #3 of the series is not sorted after book 2.1.

Required Reading: “Simplicity at Home,” by Fog Linen Founder Yumiko Sekine

Yumiko Sekine, founder of Fog Linen Work, the Tokyo-based home goods brand, is on a quest to revive the art of simplicity and craft. She’s long been a Remodelista favorite (we’ve featured her work in our three books and we all own tea towels, line-coated trays, baskets, and more from her line), so we were intrigued to learn that she’s compiled her minimalist but soulful approach to living in a new book, Simplicity at Home, from Chronicle Books. Ten years ago, Sekine’s first line included just se...

What I Learned Writing a Trilogy

In October 2016, I began writing Arlo Finch in the Valley of Fire. It’s about a kid who moves to the mountains of Colorado, where he joins the Rangers. Modeled on the scouts of my youth, Rangers can do some kinda magic things because the forest outside their town is kinda magic. Arlo Finch sold to Roaring Brook/Macmillan as a trilogy, with Valley of Fire debuting in February 2018 and Lake of the Moon the following year. It has spawned thirteen translations published around the world. I’ve toure...

Gun Control’s Unholy Union With Hollywood Is Too Rich

By Larry Keane Hollywood gun control IMG: iStock-1145895508 U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Gun control groups are recruiting Hollywood elites to sell the reasons why more gun control is necessary. Never mind these same Tinseltowners live within gated, secure neighborhoods and often pay for private security details whenever they feel like it. They haven’t learned the lessons that nothing is more off-putting than Hollywood hypocrisy, so they’re going for a sequel. The Giffords gun control group is p...

"We don't negotiate with hobbyists!"

It's a clever little ad, and I LOL'ed. The big deal about the camera they're hyping is that it's packing essentially the same sensor as the eye-bleedingly expensive GFX100 at sixty percent of the price. Medium format sensors are, these days, where Full Frame ones were about fifteen years ago. After all, the EOS 1Ds Mark II, when it came out back in 2004, stickered for eight grand. Canon's first enthusiast/prosumer full-frame body, the 5D, was nearly $3500 in late 2005.  There's a reason tha...
