Instant Gratification Is No Match for the Garden

Gardening is inherently an act of faith in the future. In certain times, perhaps even a defiant acknowledgement that there will even be a future. And if not a future for the gardeners themselves, then at least a mark upon the earth for others who might admire whatever parts might persist. Plant a perennial, any perennial, and even the Usain Bolts of these plants will probably take at least three years to reach their full potential. A redbud, call it ten years. An oak, minimum of fifty. An actual...

Because I can't resist a dumb joke...

I ran both battery packs for the D1X through the full "refresh" cycle on the charger and took it down to the canal in Broad Ripple proper yesterday morning.It's pretty cool that it still runs like a top, since digital cameras are a lot more ephemeral by nature than a purely mechanical old film camera. The D1X debuted twenty years ago with serial number 5100000, and the serial on mine is just inside the first five hundred made, so it's probably seen some stuff in its day.The old 80-400mm f/4.5-5...

Automatically load 'template' into Comments field?

Hello, folks :) I've been searching and reading posts for a few hours, now, and can't seem to find what I'm looking for (probably just not using the correct terminology...). I want to add a 'template' to the Comments field of each new book I catalogue, containing some HTML code to display alternate/back covers, special characters (—…), etc., and a formatted 'About the Author' section. Is there anywhere in Calibre to enter this so it's automatically picked up and added, instead of me having to...

The Uncommon Yet Influential AR-180 – My Favorite Armalite

*PICTOMANIA* Drawing/Word Game

The Evolution of SWATing and Red Flag Laws ~ VIDEO

Dan Wos, Author of – Good Gun Bad Guy USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Not only do gun owners have to deal with unreasonable attacks on the 2nd Amendment; the anger that some anti-gunners hold toward gun owners becomes a problem as well. Along with an irrational fear of guns, anti-gun politicians and media have been successful in cultivating a hatred toward gun owners by encouraging people to believe that gun owners are recklessly and intentionally putting people in danger. “We have federal regulations...

Remember That Time ATF Raided Polymer80: No Product Taken, No Cease & Desist Order

BBS Kit from Polymer80 advertising cropped and scaled by Dean Weingarten U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- At about 5:00 to 5:30 a.m. back on the 10th of December 2020, the ATF raided the corporate headquarters of Polymer80, located in Dayton, Nevada.
