Six Pack Interview with Erik Norlander on the Uno Synth Pro

Dr Seuss's legacy of kindness has only been bolstered by his estate's decision

We make changes to children’s books all the time. It’s important to ask: does the cultural value of this book outweigh the potential harm?Children’s literature sits at an awkward crossroads, where it is expected to be art, education and moral instruction. Children’s books are designed to teach our kids to read, to teach them about the world, about themselves and their bodies, about how to be kind, about society’s morals and values. This is true of all children’s literature, but it is particularl...

We Need to Kill Democrats’ New Gun Control, Not Make it More Palatable

by Michael Hammond We Need to Kill Democrats’ New Gun Control, Not Make it More Palatable, iStock-847506336 Washington, DC – -(AmmoLand.com)- We’ve been there before: Far-Leftist Democrats try to foist extreme unconstitutional gun control that was actually drafted in the offices of gun-hating lobbyists. But, rather than call out this legislative garbage for what it is, Republicans have sometimes foolishly thought they could “clean it up.” The result is always the same:  Every tiny concessio...

Stopping by...Checking in...

I must confess, sitting in front of a computer for hours has been the hardest thing to accomplish these last few weeks, but I’m still here and I did want to stop by and check in with you all.  Having had to sort out and clear Bookhound’s family council home from 350 miles away,( following the death of his dad at New Year) the experience has spurred us on to Sort Out the Loft and Clear Out Cupboards here. It’s become our mission for this latest siege, and that sees us knee deep in stuff that we ...

Imposing Massachusetts Gun Laws on Rest of Country Relies on Selective Deception

This politically powerful Massachusetts violence monopolist intends to force his disarmament demands on you by diktat, ordering agents of the state destroy you if you don’t obey. (Senator Edward J. Markey/Facebook) U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “As Massachusetts shows, strong gun-safety laws work,” a Thursday Boston Globe editorial by columnist Scot Lehigh claims. “Other states should follow suit.” Evidently two “reports” from sources we are supposed to accept as unbiased, the Centers for Disease...

Moving Out of a Smart Home

Before selling our home last year, a realtor told us our home would qualify as a smart home because of all the technology installed. “Smart” additions included Lutron Caseta light switches in our basement to turn off lights by voice command or app, an Echobee thermostat for remote temperature control, and an app-based video camera for the driveway so we knew when package deliveries arrived. We also used Google Echo Dots around the house to set alarms, ask silly questions, and broadcast messages ...

Likebook Alita -- are there known issues with this device?

So I've been comparing the Alita and Onyx Boox Note 2 or 3. The SD Card and lower price is tempting in the Alita. However.... in this forum I'm reading a lot of transfer issues, sd card issues, and general garbled page issues. At what would end up being near $600 landed for me, that's a lot for a buggy unit. Is the Alita a "known" issue device, compared to the Boox Note devices? Trying to find a reliable 10" e-ink device to use as an MS Word / gDoc + keyboard writer. Thanks

How Desert Quail Hunts Spur New Upland Passion

Desert quail hunting opens up a world of opportunities. IMG Brandon Butler U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- I’ve been flirting with upland bird hunting most of my life. As a teenager, I had a Weimaraner named Remington. Together, we’d shoot pheasants busted from fencerows in the agricultural lands of northern Indiana. There wasn’t a lot of skill to it, but I grew to love the flush, and I loved that bird dog. Recently, I ventured to Arizona for a desert quail hunt. There are three species of quail to pu...
