No worries Blues Bro, you are not the only one to miss out on things due to it only being on FB. I've lived happily for 40+ years without that crap, I'll happily live the rest of my life without that crap. Facebook is cancer.

Nice!
If I wasn't a broke MO state employee, I would have donated some myself. :(

EDIT: Also, let me state that my above statement isn't me looking for sympathy. I'm actually in a good spot to make decent mid-MO money in a few years, and this is in IT, and with me not having a degree at all. I plan on making donations once I'm past the paycheck-to-paycheck life. Blues for Kids is one of them. ;)

I'm not a big fan of Allen but, he did play his ass off the first period. The dude may not be overly consistent, but give credit where it's due. We'd be losing by quite a bit if it wasn't for Allen's first period play at least...

I had a book that kept pulling the wrong cover on my kindle no matter what cover I set it to in Calibre. Ended up being an incorrect ASIN set in the metadata IDs section.

Find the version of the book you want the cover of on Amazon and grab the ASIN from there. Use that ASIN in the metadata for the book in Calibre. Hopefully, that will point your kindle in the right direction when deciding on what cover to use.
