The Second Day Of TFB Christmas: Targets

Unfitness to plead law and the fallacy of a fair trial

Cognitive disability is not well accommodated in criminal justice systems. Yet, people with cognitive disability are overrepresented in these systems. Unfitness to plead law is one legal mechanism that is purported to assist when a person with cognitive disability is charged with a crime. The aim of such laws is claimed to be to prevent an individual with cognitive disability to have to engage in a trial process. It has been said that unfitness to plead law exists in an effort to ensure the righ...

The Buck Abyss Fillet Knife Review

Buck Abyss Fillet Knife USA -(Ammoland.com)- Buck Knives has a new fish fillet knife which I can’t wait to test out. Yes, I know, all of the guides and real fishermen use an electric fillet knife now (and have for 30 years.).Dad wouldn’t let us fillet fish when we were growing up. He said it wasted too much meat. He also made us scale them with a spoon. Does anyone still do all of this? If so, don’t make your kids do it because you’re eccentric!Hillary Clinton would have a kid be able to sue t...

Selling the Broom

A re-post -- Christmas prep has a stranglehold on me just now. Some years ago, John was talking with a local store owner -- a man who also owned a great deal of property in the little community around the store. The store had belonged to his daddy before him, the man said, and it was due to his daddy's good business sense that the family was so well off. And he did it all by selling a broom. It was during the Depression, when it was common practice for a farmer to buy on credit and settl...

This 6-year-old made $11 million on YouTube in one year

Meet Ryan, age 6. He's the host of Ryan ToysReview on YouTube. He earned $11 million in revenue in twelve months. From the Washington Post: What has grown into a viral phenomenon began with a simple, unremarkable 15-minute video about a Lego Duplo train set. When his family started recording and posting the videos in March 2015, the 3-year-old barely had any views let alone reviews, according to a profile of Ryan in Verge. In his first video, he simply opened a Lego box, set up the blocks...

Cheers

The sun sets today at 4:15 pm.  December does not have nearly enough daylight hours for a sun lover like myself.  Usually, the heights of the holiday season offset the increasingly dark days of December; but, sometimes, we all need a little extra something to get us through.  Personally, I’ve been trying to soak up as much sun as I can on bright days.  It helps that we have several beautiful greenhouses here at Blithewold.  Not only do we have the privilege of working in a humid, sunny environme...

Easy Paper Holiday Garland : Holly

For this version, I wanted an easy, modern Christmas decoration. I chose classic Christmas colors, but feel free to experiment! You can dress this up or down to fit your own Christmas décor. This garland would look great in metallic scrapbook papers and satin ribbon, or even kraft paper and twine. It looks lovely draped across windows and doorways or around a Christmas tree. With a few clothespins, it can also serve as a hanger for Christmas cards. This project should be suitable for children...

Ken Follett "Enchants" Us With Another Book in the Kingsbridge Series

It's a brick. You know the sort of book I'm referring to. And, as much as we love to read, when one of these doorstops hits our desks with a palpable ca-thunk, it can sometimes elicit a groan. Not so when it comes to a new novel by Ken Follett, however, and A Column of Fire is no exception. Continuing the Kingsbridge series which began with The Pillars of the Earth, Follett's latest historical epic addresses themes that are still very relevant today. Erin Kodicek: A Column of Fire is about relig...

The Common Errors Of Pheasant Hunting

By Edgar Castillo Pheasant Hunting USA -(Ammoland.com)- Looking out over the cut milo field, we could see pheasants milling about for food. Mother Nature had laid out a new white canvas overnight.The fresh snow and the sparse cover made the pheasants look like tiny black checkmarks on a recently graded piece of paper. Little did we know that in the field, just like errors on a quiz, mistakes would cost us, cost us birds in our game vests.The long-tails scooted in and out from under a thin cov...
