Client Remodel: Christina & John’s Kitchen

In late 2019, my client Christina wrote to me and asked if I could help her update her dated 1990s oak kitchen and we set an appointment to meet her in her home. I shared with her all of my ideas for how to modernize her space, she hired me as her design consultant, and we got to work. Christina loves to entertain and plays host during the holidays so she wanted a space where she could spend time with her family but also invite guests over for celebrations large and small. We discussed every det...

Required Reading: ‘Every Room Should Sing,’ by Designer-of-the-Moment Beata Heuman

Remodelista editor Fan Winston discovered Swedish-born, London-based interior designer Beata Heuman a while back (see: A Rising Star’s Spirited London Home: ‘Every Room Should Sing!’), and we all became obsessed (see Margot’s post A Colorful Small-Space in London). Heuman founded her studio in 2013 after working for renegade, over-the-top London designer Nicky Haslam for nine years (she says he taught her to “not give a jot about what anyone thinks”). Her rise has been swift; she’s designed inte...

Colt Buntline by Master Engraver Howard Dove – VIDEO

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Colt’s Single Action Army (SAA) revolver is one of the most well-known guns of all time. Known colloquially as the Peacemaker, this revolver and the Winchester 1873 lever-action rifle are often regarded as the “Guns that Won the West.” Many people often attribute the saying, “God made man, but Sam Colt made them equal” to be a reference to the SAA, but Sam had been dead for more than a decade before the gun was introduced. While the overall design of the gun has staye...

Kindle Oasis 3 or Kobo Libra H2O at the same price

Hello everyone! I'm looking a new ereader to replace my old Kindle basic 4. And after lot of researching, I was on the verge of buying a used Kobo Libra H2O. But now I have find a Kindle Oasis 3 (2019), also used, for almost the same price that the Kobo (around 150€). So my question is pretty straightforward: do you prefer the Kobo Libra H2O or the Kindle Oasis 3 if the price is not an issue? I have read a lot of forum and blog posts about this topic, but most of them compare the Kobo with t...

Speaking With Former SEAL Team 6 Member About “Surviving Mann”

U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Don Mann lived an exciting life. He joined the Navy as a Corpsman before trying out for the Navy SEALS. Mann went through BUDS and loved it. While in the SEALS, he learned about a new team on the SEALS led by Richard Marcinko. Mann decided he needed to push himself to join this very elite team of operators. This unit became known as SEAL Team Six and later renamed the Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU). After Mann left the military, he missed pushing him...

Below The Radar – Firearms Safety Act

Below The Radar – Firearms Safety Act, Gun-Safe-iStock-1031564278-C5Media United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- These days, the phrase “gun safety” has become something that makes Second Amendment supporters clench their teeth in frustration, mostly because anti-Second Amendment extremists have co-opted the phrase in order to inflict injustice on tens of millions of Americans for crimes and acts of madness they didn’t commit. Not only that, the hijacking of “gun safety” has obscured real efforts t...

Latest paperwhite's screen vs. voyage's screen

For those who have had both the latest paperwhite, whatever generation that is, and the voyage, is the PW's screen now as good as the voyage's? I think the answer used to be "not quite" because the voyage's lighting is more even and the screen is just a little bit clearer. The text feels closer to the screen somehow. But maybe that has changed? (I know that even the first gen oasis's screen wasn't quite as good as the voyage's and had a more noticeable gradient because it was horizontal and y...

Search for blank or empty comments

:blink: Hello, I recently imported a large number of books that have incomplete metadata. I would like to filter/sort these books and do a few bulk "Download Metadata". Is there a way to search for empty comments fields? I tried making a custom column for comments, hoping I could sort and push empty field to teh top or bottom, but that did not work. Thanks for the awesome tool, and the helpful forum!
