Keeping social distance: the story of the word “aloof” and a few tidbits

It is amazing how many words like aloof exist in English. Even for “fear” we have two a-formations: afraid, which supplanted the archaic afeard, and aghast. Aback, aboard, ashore, asunder—a small dictionary can be filled with them (but alas and alack do not belong here). The model is productive: consider aflutter and aglitter. One feature unites those words: they cannot be used attributively. Indeed, an asunder man and an astride rider do not exist. The prefix a- in such words usually goes back ...

Why gardening during safer at home guidelines can be a healthy activity

For gardeners, at least, the coronavirus crisis offers opportunities like never before. To stay healthy, we are admonished not to leave home except for essential purposes. Of course, we are still free to garden to our heart’s content and with all the extra time at our disposal we may finally embark upon long-delayed garden projects. And gardening itself is a great form of exercise which, as such, can only help to bolster our immune systems. Moreover, if you believe in the body-mind connection, y...

I Thought Georgia Was A Free State? Time for Constitutional Carry

Opinion I Thought Georgia Was A Free State? Time for Constitutional Carry Georgia – -(AmmoLand.com)- While all of us follow federal recommendations and hunker down in our abodes, the usual suspects are taking advantage of the national health emergency to strip the second amendment rights of citizens.

Pencil Box To Jewelry Box!

I made this out of a pencil box I found At work that was completely ruined. I mean the keys were missing, the lining was torn and the netting that you keep your pencils in was completely destroyed. So I took it home unlocked it, (It helped that I had a key from the same kind of box I already owned) and I made it into this jewelry box! I’m still trying to decide how I want to decorate the top but I live the end result so far. I’m so proud of myself [Author: Kinhime Dragon]

The city will survive coronavirus

In a recent essay, New York Times architecture critic Michael Kimmelman asked “Can City Life Survive Coronavirus?” It seems an apt question in this extraordinary time of mandated retreat from public life.  City streets and spaces normally teeming with people are nearly deserted now, evoking scenes from a Terry Gilliam film.  In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 we have shut down the sites where the rituals of daily urban life unfold, “third places” like cafes and bars and community center...

The BOG Great Divide Tripod offers shooters a portable, affordable stable rifle rest. U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Over the past twenty-five years, we have probably purchased more tripods than most.

Collectors Corner - Incredible Diorama Collection by A Limited Number Of Wives Customs

I've been looking at a lot of Transformers collections lately, but this one really stands out from the rest with not just putting toys on the shelf, but going to the extra effort of creating an array of dioramas based on well known Generation 1 scenes to display toy in. That's precisely what "A Limited Number Of Wives Customs" have done with the creation of a very smartly designed multy-leveled island situated in the middle of the collection room for easy access.
