Friday Night Lights: Full Power Laser Showdown – MAWL-DA vs NGAL vs RAIDX vs LA5 UHP

Lasers make aiming easier with night vision however there is more to lasers than a fancy cat toy. Multi-Function Aiming Lasers (MFAL) have an illuminator. Most civilian rated MFALs have anemic illuminators for the sake of them being eye-safe. Only the MAWL-C1+ and DBAL-D2 have a decent enough illuminator to light up the darkness. But […] Read More … The post Friday Night Lights: Full Power Laser Showdown – MAWL-DA vs NGAL vs RAIDX vs LA5 UHP appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

These two books are guiding my vegetable garden

I am growing a 100% containerized garden! I moved to a new home last year. My old one sucked for growing things beyond tomatoes and weed. I grew an amazing bounty of tomatoes and strawberries, last spring. Weed, while still legal, seems to be an invitation to thievery here. — Read the rest

My New Fave Winter Bloomer

T he purpose of houseplants (in winter) is to ameliorate the effects of cabin fever. The best houseplants for this purpose grow fast enough that you can see changes from day to day, and they also bloom–strengthening the illusion that actual gardening is taking place. Flowering bulbs are well-suited to the task–the tender ones that tolerate our artificially heated homes and the hardy ones that can be tricked into blooming early. This winter I grew Madeiran Squill (Scilla madeirensis) for the...

Literary Wind, Sand and Stars by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

'Recipient of the Grand Prix of the Académie Française, Wind, Sand and Stars captures the grandeur, danger, and isolation of flight. Its exciting account of air adventure, combined with lyrical prose and the spirit of a philosopher, makes it one of the most popular works ever written about flying.' There are two phases of discussion. The first begins immediately and may contain conversations about anything pre-completion of the selection including reading progress, section thoughts, outside inf...

Different epub books are showing different font sizes

Not sure if this is the correct forum but thought it may be because of how an epub was designed and could perhaps be corrected via editing. I use Moonreader which has a global font size which can be set to a particular value. If I am reading a book and the fontsize is just right and then load another book more often than not I have to readjust the fontsize to get it where I want again. I use the same font for all books that I read. I am assuming that what is causing the change in font size is ...

Torres Lighting Collection for Landscape Forms

The Torres Lighting collection for Landscape Forms walks a delicate balance between disappearing into the surrounding landscape and making quite an impression.

LEGO Boba Fett's helmet with cool stand

Burris 4.5-14x 42mm Droptine Riflescope – Review

The Burris 4.5-14x 42mm Droptine Scope is a nice economical big game scope but it also works fine on an airgun. U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- I recently was testing a Umarex .22 cal. Origin airgun. I haven’t used a Burris since I left Colorado 22 years ago, so I thought I’d try a Burris scope on it. Of course when I’m hunting with a .22 cal. airgun I’m hunting small game that has a small kill zone. Due to this, I like a 4.5-14x scope. After checking out the Burris line-up I noticed that they had a...
