Beef Tea Subscription

There's a brand of dehydrated cuppa soup they sell at the Fresh Market around the corner which has a "Vietnamese Beef Phở" flavor that is just delicious. I mean, as phở-qua-phở, it's just mediocre, but the broth? Yum! I could sip that umami beef tea from a quart thermos on a cold winter afternoon. Best of all, I discovered that Amazon will deliver it by the eight-pack. You can even subscribe!  (Beef Tea Subscription is the name of my next band, by the way.) . [Author: Tam]

TFB Review: Schmidt & Bender 1.5-8x42mm STRATOS Hunting Rifle Scope

I would never really have considered the Schmidt & Bender 1.5-8×40 STRATOS, but as I was reviewing the Pulsar Krypton FXG50 thermal front attachment I was in need of a rifle scope with low-to-medium magnification, at least 42 mm exit pupil (for the Pulsar adapters to fit) and a reticle suitable for hunting. Schmidt & […] Read More … The post TFB Review: Schmidt & Bender 1.5-8x42mm STRATOS Hunting Rifle Scope appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

They're Not Confessing. They're Bragging.

I am on record as saying that the Left was shocked by their loss in 2016 to Donald Trump.  They were so certain of Hillary's inevitability that they didn't bother to turn on the fraud machine.  It was in the bag.  The World's Most Qualified Woman against a reality-TV orangutan.  As Roger Kimball put it in a recent Quote of the Day: The central fact to appreciate about Donald Trump is that he was elected without the permission, and over the incredulous objections, of the woke oligarchy that g...

Continuing Gun Voter Betrayals, Rubio Adds Blacklists to Red Flags

I say take him up on it. (Marco Rubio/Facebook) U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Senator Marco Rubio introduces bill to suspend gun rights of anyone who has ever been ‘investigated’ for domestic terrorism,”  The Unz Review reported Sunday. “The Senate bill, named the Terror Intelligence Improvement Act, was reentered last week in hopes of exploiting the hysteria surrounding the January 6th Capitol protests.

5.10.1 - viewer problem

Tried the Calibre e-viewer & cannot get a good "view". This is with the 64-bit 5.10.1; have never tried to read a book with Calibre. The problem is that the book is selected, the cover shows up then pressing the up button, the cover picture shrinks to very small then the rest of the book pages are also the same size like a postage stamp. Pressing the down button/arrow just goes to the previous page; no expansion. I usually read with my tablets. Oh, the "book" tried is a manga in epub file f...

Why David Bowie’s songs inspire Louis Chude-Sokei’s memoir ‘Floating in a Most Peculiar Way’

Louis Chude-Sokei has described himself as half-Nigerian, half-Jamaican and half-African American. “Bad math, but absolutely accurate,” he says Chude-Sokei, 53, has spent years struggling with his own sense of identity. Raised in Los Angeles, he traces his roots both to Jamaica, where his mother was born and where he spent a chunk of his childhood, and to his father’s homeland of Nigeria.  “I spent so many years trying to be a member of certain kinds of identities but failing or being rejecte...

Her story sounds like the script of a feature film. A young country girl narrowly escapes Vietnam after the fall of Saigon, leaving behind her family, her best friend and all she knows.

She is taken in by an American grad student named Kathy, and while the two couldn’t be more different in background and personality, they end up founding a successful restaurant and raising a child together. “Mango an...
