Is Iran in Our Gun Sights Now?

By Pat Buchanan Is Iran in Our Gun Sights Now? Patrick J .Buchanan USA –  -(Ammoland.com)-  “Iran must be free. The dictatorship must be destroyed.

On the Market: The Historic Filbert Cottages in San Francisco’s Russian Hill

San Francisco’s Filbert Cottages were built in 1907 to house survivors of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. The builder, William Bush, could never have imagined his modest emergency structures would be for sale at around $4 million apiece one century later. Over the years, the Filbert Cottages—at 1338 Filbert St. in the city’s Russian Hill—have served as apartment housing and even a design school, but by 2000 they had fallen into complete disrepair. A controversial development proposal around t...

How the New ‘Star Wars’ Novels Connect to ‘The Last Jedi’

When Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012, an edict came down from on high: every Star Wars-related product that the company produced moving forward would be canonical, from coloring books to video games to comics and beyond. We already saw how some of the books influenced the script for The Force Awakens, but now we know how a whole new set of Star Wars novels will connect to the events of Rian Johnson‘s upcoming movie Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Entertainment Weekly has an exhaustive breakdown ...

Attention, or how to organize the mind

Sometimes our mind is a mess. Thoughts and experiences pile up, and our mind flips from one thing to another: I need to buy milk, I have an important meeting tomorrow, and, no, the bills have still not been paid;  it’s my friends birthday, the face of that person reminds me of someone I met in college, and the advertisement blaring from the loudspeakers  tells me that a new shampoo will change my life. When our mind is such a mess, our life easily becomes a mess too. We forget to write the memo ...

Buffalo’s first green roof, ten years later by Elizabeth Licata

The roof now Buffalo is not landscape architecture central. Aside from a large Olmsted park system (that’s been adulterated in spots), I find many WNY public landscapes uninspired. Private gardens are the thing here; almost 500 of them will be open to the public next week. However, I do have a favorite local landscape architect. I’ve written before about Joy Kuebler’s forward-thinking public and private garden designs. We worked together on an unusual Show House exterior landscape in 2009, but,...

Forget Ant Colonies. Here's a Desktop Termite Habitat

It might be tough for me to sell you an inch-thick cross-section of Douglas Fir for $125. But if I encased it in acrylic and placed a live colony of termites in there, maybe you'd give it a second look. That's the hope of the folks behind the Termitat, a desktop termite habitat that's a twist on the ho-hum ant colony. Twenty of these little bastards will go to town on that Doug Fir, spending three years or more munching it into their new nest while you watch. All you have to do is add water e...

In order to make the best use of limited time and budget... Where should he go... Where is off-the-beaten-track lesser-known New York.. What shouldn't he miss... Any photography or other exhibitions... He says all suggestions gratefully received and thank you.     [Author: dovegreyreader...
