This is a cloud at which I could cheerfully yell...

"Which is all preface to a larger issue – the digital age’s fetish for large aperture lenses. Like most fetishes, it can’t be justified rationally. It makes no sense. In the digital age, when hyper ISO is a reality (10,000 ISO being common), there simply is no need for them. None, other than to pimp the one-trick pony that is ‘bokeh,’ which, to my eyes, is the single worst visual affectation brought about by digital capture. Suffice it to say that, as a general rule, the more you rely on bokeh t...

Stewed in its own juices.

Bobbi has blogged up her recipe from last night's dinner, which was truly delicious. I bought the fish sauce she mentioned when I was searching for garum, on one of my ancient Rome jags. It's enhanced several recipes lately with its yummy umami goodness. . [Author: Tam]

Hello everyone, around 2015-2016 I was going through hard times and struggling with depression; not to make this story long, I was at the lowest point of my life.

Both books were beautifully writte...

Below The Radar – LEAD Act

Below The Radar – LEAD Act United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- Attacks on our right to keep and bear arms don’t just take the form of gun bans or universal background checks. If anything, anti-Second Amendment extremists have always been scheming to find ways to make it harder to exercise our rights, and some of them are quite diabolical in the way many Second Amendment supporters do not see them coming. One such bill is HR 405, the LEAD Act, introduced by Ted Lieu, a congressman from California...

InkPad H3 - Power button light pulsating

Hello, for some reason I do not understand starting from tonight the power button light has started pulsating and - being always on - it is fast discharging the reader. I tried shutting it down and turning it on again to no avail. I looked around for some way to do a soft reset, but I could only find links to factory reset, which I would not like to do as I could lose all my collections (maybe ?). Any help, please ? Thanks in advance Bruno

What to know about planters and flowerpots for your plants

When it comes to buying pots for your plants, you have to think like Goldilocks. The container you choose should be just the right size. “You don’t want to oversize the pot for the plant,” said Lou Coy of Boyle Heights shop Latinx With Plants. “People say that when you repot a plant you should put it in a really big pot so that it will encourage it to grow. That’s actually not true, I find. If you put it in a pot that’s too large, it’s going to take longer to drain and dry out, and you risk drow...

California Model: Soft on Violent Firearm Crimes, Hard on Gun-Owners

California has a long history of screwing over legal gun-owners. IMG NRA-ILA U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- A frustrating aspect of the modern gun control movement is its seeming abandonment of reason. The same anti-gun politicians that attack the rights of law-abiding gun owners will advocate for more lenient treatment of those who misuse firearms to commit violent crimes. Consider California’s Assembly Bill 1509, which would alter the state’s scheme of sentence enhancements for serious crimes commi...
