Review | To Sir Phillip, With Love by Julia Quinn

The first book to make it onto my best books I've read so far this year list was actually a surprise. Thanks to Bridgerton's massive success, Julia Quinn's name is everywhere these days. And I'm chuffed about the whole thing. That said, my Quinn reading up to this point has been sporadic at best. And I'd only read two novels in the actual Bridgerton series. So I decided to rectify that at the beginning of the year by starting with Eloise's story (the fifth in the series) because she is my u...

Plowing has happened.

We got enough snow at once for the city to activate the small army of contractors to clear the side streets. (Indy DPW only does the major streets, which means unless there's a big snowfall, we have to slip'n'slide our way to 54th Street or College Avenue before we get to cleared pavement.) Yesterday around lunch there was a Suburban with a plow blade clearing the street in front of Roseholme Cottage. The same neighbor with the snowthrower from the other day went out and did the walks on both ...

Presenting to Garden Groups Virtually ~ the good, the bad, and the pandemic possibilities ~

Guest Post by C.L. Fornari In April of 2020 my speaking business had to suddenly shift from in-person talks to virtual presentations. Zoom became my new best friend. Some groups and audiences were quick to embrace this means of staying in touch, while others were slower to admit that if any gatherings and talks were going to happen, it needed to be online or not at all. Now, almost a full year and over 100 presentations later, I’m here to record some rants and raves about how this is working for...

NRA Shows their Petticoats, and the US Trustee Objects to Brewer

NRA Shows their Petticoats, and the US Trustee Objects to Brewer, istock U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- The judge in the NRA’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy case, has set March 9th, 2021, as the date for hearing most of the early motions. That’s the day when we should find out whether the judge is going to throw the case out altogether or allow it to continue. The first item on the agenda for that hearing is supposed to be NRA Board Member, Phil Journey’s motion to have an Examiner appointed to investigate...

Clara HD Overdrive/Kobo feature updates?

I just noticed the other day that I could return books on my Kobo Clara HD from all the libraries connected to my Libby app (I’m running the most recent firmware). Until recently, only the main library linked to the Kobo store would allow me to return ebooks from my Kobo. I’d have to open the Libby app to return or renew books from the other libraries. It’s been this way for years, so I’m excited about the new development. For you people plugged into the details, when did this change occur, and...

Looking like this will be the year...

Good news on the Constitutional Carry front here in Indiana:"House Bill 1369 did make progress this week. It passed out of the Public Policy Committee in the House and was approved by the Ways & Means Committee. Now it heads to a vote on the floor of the House this week, where it’s expected to pass and move over to the Senate."Funny how it easily greased through a Bosma-less House. I thought he was a conservative Republican and a friend of the Second Amendment? . [Author: Tam]

I lost the Calibre app and the download is not working

. Calibre is suddenly gone from my laptop, and I think when I ran a scan of my PC using an app called Restoro, it deleted Calibre. I tried downloading Calibre again, but when I go to launch the newly installed Calibre app, I only see options to Change, Repair or Remove. Where is the download file? I think it may have been removed by the utility app Restoro. Each time I started Calibre, Restoro would ask if I wanted to stop Calibre from starting. I don't know why

Right to left

I was wondering if there was a plug-in for Calibre viewer that make it so that the page layout is right to left. The reason for why I'm asking is because I read manga and they page layout is right to left instead of left to right.

Clara HD Very rapid battery drain PLUS time changing?

Hello all - I've seen a few threads about rapid battery drain on the Clara HD, but I've experienced a problem of late I can't figure out. Some days, the charge will go from about 95% to 9% in a matter of hours. But on top of that, when there has been this extreme rapid drop in battery life, I'll see that the time is off by few hours. Yes, I have a sleep cover. I can confirm that it is asleep (the light is off) and the WiFi is off as well. The book I'm reading a small EPUB (converted to KE...

Difference between log.debug, log.info, log.warn log.error

I want to learn python so I decided to write something challenging. In order to implement a new source object (noosfere) under calibre 5.11, I have used heavily the log.info()... Then, I have discovered that log.error existed... but I could not see any difference in the log file... I traced the log back to logging.py. I failed to understand really what to expect when invoking log.debug or log.info or log.error I have the feeling that some differences should exist, I would expect something like...

Give Me an S

Serpentine. Seductive. Salubrious. Tom Dixon’s iconic S Chair inhabits the very soul of the letter. In one sweeping, swooping gesture Dixon establishes it as a daring feat of industrial design and an audacious expression of sitting. We know this much: the designer conceived S Chair back in the 80s. But his recollections of its generation are a bit hazy: ”honestly, the only memory I have is of drawing a small doodle of a chicken on the back of a napkin and thinking that I could make a ch...
