My Future MMJ Plantation

I haven’t received my Red Card yet but have started planning my “grow room”: our library! It was previously destined to be in my bedroom but the long hours of the grow lights would be a problem. 😉 This may be changed after the plants begin to mature; some marijuana is not pleasant smelling! One variety of Sativia is called “Skunk” for a reason! Some varieties are actually pleasant smelling; I hope my supplier can provide cuttings of those.

I am commandeering this desk.

This has become a place to dump stuff! All I have to do is clean it off! Lol. The books are all keepers and all our library shelves are full to overflowing! This lead to working on yet another project: Donna’s horse books. She is donating them to the school library so, if I could box them up, I could have that shelf space!

Other stuff on here include a weather station I never got up, the office organizer, and other office stuff. This was originally planned as work area. No one has ever worked there!

As I work on this, I keep feeling “Tom Sawyered”! Good thing I am motivated. Lol.

Kindle Books

I just downloaded some books into my Kindle. And it is all John Scalzi’s fault! I was checking out his recommendation of Stephen Boyett’s new novel, Mortality Bridge. That one went on my wish list (because Stephen, or his publisher, doesn’t have Kindle versions). Then I ended up in the Kindle store!

I bought four new books! But actually paid money for only one! While Amazon is good at making recommendations, somehow the free books don’t show up on that list! So I now have Stretch (a Harlequin novel), Red Coyote Weekend (a mystery), CRY UNCLE (a probably pitiful mystery/romance), and Mama Does Time (a mystery in the style of Carl Hiaasen). The last one was the paid for one with great recommendations.

Earlier I had “bought” The Prince by Machiavelli (in English). The free list changes constantly since it is a “top 100” list.

Another discovery: Kindles only read PDF imports as I have mentioned. It will not read any text documents. 😦 Amazon knew what it was doing!

Kindle Update

I have read more books since I got this gadget than in the previous several weeks! It is easy to read on; I had to force myself to finish Fuzzy Nation in hardbound.

But I have found one problem. While it easily accepts PDFs, those cannot be resized to fit the screen and be read comfortably. With books, enlarging text causes it to wrap but with a PDF, it is fixed at whatever size it was created.
