Yesterday I had a book in Calibre that I wanted to upload to my Kindle but Calibre did not recognize the device. I spent a lot of time looking for what caused that and how to fix it. Finally decided to do a Kindle restart and that seems to have fixed the problem. I haven't tried to do another upload yet but I do see the Calibre now recognizes the Kindle.

I am having a similar problem with my Chromebook and Garmin watch. I have not been able to find a fix for that other than use my Toshiba which works just fine.

I haven't had anything to say about the weather for the fast few days. It has been WONDERFUL! Starting 18 March the past three days high has been in the 70s and the morning lows in the 40s. Morning walks done with flannel shirt and wool shirt jacket, afternoon walks in a t-shirt. How long can this last?
leftpic Round the Fire Stories is a volume collecting 17 short stories first published in 1908 by Smith, Elder & Co. (UK), and the same year by McClure (US). As Conan Doyle wrote in his preface, this volume include stories concerned with the grotesque and with the terrible. - From the Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

I did not find the stories to be all that grotesque or terrible. There were 5-6 of them that were repeat reads from some previous collection of his short stories. I recognized that I had read them before only after getting started reading and continued because they were good stories. In my opinion all of them are better than those that feature Sherlock Holmes.
