The "Peanuts" strip was always one of my favorites and the man behind its whimsical content is the reason why. He was a positive and caring man and the strip was an amazing extension of his talent and impressive integrity.
Published in 1985 by T.F.H. Publications, Inc., this breed book dedicated to the Chow Chow, covers all aspects of breed care and ownership. The photos are prolific and should prove of great interest to the breed fancier who welcomes seeing and owning photos of past champions in his dog's pedigree.
This is a handy little 3 volume desk set that defines more than just words; it also includes people and places of note. The only drawback to it is that publication was in 1982; so much has happened since which seriously dates it. The other side of the coin is that there is a possibility that some of the facts in it have been dropped from newer tomes of this kind. Definitely a curiosity to lovers of older books.
While I think the concept of dancing with cats is intriguing, I have to admit that the text brought out some very odd ideas from "cat dancers" shown in this book. That said, I feel I should add that the photographs were great fun to sift through!
My mother died almost exactly thirty-one years ago, and in a small red leather notebook she left behind that my sister gave to me last year was a note: "Dubliners - James Joyce."
A few months ago I was able to secure a copy of the book and began to read. It was a rough go, wading through dated phrasing and Irish expressions I didn't understand. I struggled.
The book, having lain on my bedside table for a few weeks, beckoned me to continue. Little by little I began to get into the flow of Joyce's writing and descriptions of Dublin life. I became fascinated with the characters he wrote of and worried and rejoiced right along with them.
A wonderful book for sure! And I say a silent thank you to my mother for introducing me to the writings of an amazing author.
Another action-packed and humorous chapter in the continuing saga of Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter. Evanovich's style pulls you into the story quickly and before you know it, you are spit back out and craving more. I love this series!
Evergreens are more than a standing tree; this book explores many varieties that may surprise you! Profusely illustrated with color photos, this 1971 publication let's you explore the possibilities, like the Weeping Colorado Blue Spruce and St. John's Wort, to name but a few.
An interesting commentary about the pluses in drinking red wine.
"More than 1.5 million Americans will have a heart attack this year; 500,000 of them will die. Now you can learn the pleasurable no-deprivation secrets that can help you avoid being a coronary statistic and live longer in the process."
The author, Lewis Perdue, has written 13 books and has worked as an investigative reporter for more than 20 years.
Flagg writes a story about a small town with a homey little cafe where everyone likes to hang out to eat some great tomatoes and barbeque. You could say it is a story about a place that artist Norman Rockwell might have painted - as American as apple pie. Or is it? Strange things are happening!
Loved the movie with Jessica Tandy and Kathy Bates. The book moves slower, but has a lush and rich narrative. It also has a recipe index for some good down home cooking.
