Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is a tale of fifteenth-century Englandtroubled timestimes of medieval knights, mayhem, war, and of friendship, honor, and determination. England has a weak king who has ruled too long. Powerful magnates seek to rob the king of his wealth, of his authority, and of his majesty. It is a time of deceit and double-dealing, of theft and violence, of murder and war. Into these times come William Wulfgar Howard, the bastard son of a wayward knight, and John Hugh Fitzalan, high-born aristocrat. In the halls and tilting yards of Arundel Castle, they quickly become friends. Together they strive to become young gentlemen, skilled warriors, and chivalrous esquires. Thrust into war when barely a dozen years old, they find high adventure, rich spoils, and much more. Stepping into the waning years of the Hundred Years War, they must quickly absorb the skills of professional warriors and fight battles on land and sea, struggling to save a lost cause. Along the way, they find that a quick blade is sometimes as valuable as a quick wit, and that friendship is worth more than wealth.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: On Black Thursday, March 19, 2015, Kathy was hit with the unimaginable, that she had inoperable pancreatic cancer. She asked how much time she had left, and was told 4 months, maybe 6. She cried, she cursed, and she cried some more. After a few days, she pulled herself together, and decided to fight, and fight hard, if that's what it would take to beat the horrible invader that was threatening her life. This is Kathy's story, a story of what it takes to try and beat the unbeatable. And what does it take? Caring, skilled doctors; great medical institutions; the willingness to try new paths; family support that pulled itself around her and gave crutches to lean on and shoulders to cry on; friends, close and distant, who pulled together, prayed and established prayer groups and said masses and novenas, who sent care packages and cards and flowers and gifts and a healing blanket ... but it took more, it took a strong, stubborn, determined woman who would not go down without a fight. And it took five miracles.

Download or read book Tales of a New York Yankee written by Louis Richard Baumgaertner and published by Trafford Publishing. This book was released on 2017-03-02 with total page 326 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Lou Baumgaertner was born and bred in New York City, and although he also lived amongst the Border States, and even in the South, he was a New York Yankee to his dying day. Part of that, of course, could be attributed to his being a die-hard fan of the best baseball team in the world, the New York Yankees. But being a New York Yankee also meant so much more New Yorkers tend to be different from those who live in other regions, and frequently are easily recognized by others as either being different, or more precisely as being from New York. Sometimes that recognition is not accompanied by a warm feeling of acceptance. But we New Yorkers know we are different. We have our own accent although those who live in New York City might argue its all the others who have accents we speak perfectly normally. Because we live in a Big City, we talk fast, we seem brusque, and we sometimes appear to lack patience with others. We dont mean to be rude, but the demands of surviving in a Big City (almost any Big City) require a no-nonsense attitude to life to avoid being run over by those around us. But once you get to know us, were pretty nice people. We New Yorkers are proud of ourselves, and of our city, and we have a right to be. It may not be the Capital of the Country, but many New Yorkers often think of it as such to a true New Yorker, there is only one New York City! And New York City is the Business and Cultural Capital of the Country! This ubiquitous sentiment is why New Yorkers are so often accused of not playing well with the other kids on the block. And New Yorkers are definitely Yankees. No one should argue with that point. We live well above the Mason-Dixon Line. We fought for the North during the Civil War. And although there are others who can rightly and proudly also proclaim themselves as being Yankees, these other Northerners dont also happen to have the best baseball team in the world residing in their city, now do they? And so, by way of example, lets take a look at one particular New York Yankee. Lou Baumgaertner was a War Baby, born in the Bronx during the First World War. He spent his childhood in the Bronx and Corona during the Roaring Twenties, and began to mature in Corona and Manhattan during the Great Depression. He worked in Manhattan for years, but eventually got an opportunity for a new career in radio-communications in Louisville, KY. He tried to avoid induction into the military as World War II geared up, but eventually found that no one who could hold a rifle and shoot straight was going to miss the opportunity to serve his Uncle Sam. Like so many of his generation, the Second World War finished the maturing process, and put a fine polish on the person he had become. Here then are his adventures, in New York City, during World War II, and amongst the Border States, during the 20th Century.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Second in the series, Royal Interlude is the sequel to Troubled Times. Will Howard and Hugh Fitzalan, although yearning to return to their beloved Arundel Castle in Southern England, still find themselves embroiled in the trouble and chaos of war-torn France during the waning years of the Hundred Years War. While they continue to advance their skills as young warriors and esquires, and often find themselves in real combat battling the French, their Homeland struggles for a solution to endless war -- Victory or Peace? One potential solution, perhaps, is for the young and eligible Henry VI of England to wed a suitable French Princess. Charles VII has eligible daughters. But will the canny King of France allow Henry to wed one? And at what price? While plots and intrigues ensue at the highest levels of both realms, Will and Hugh find themselves tasked with discovering the secret of arguably the most powerful man in England, Sir William de la Pole, fourth Earl of Suffolk. King's Steward, and the King's best friend, confidant, and chief negotiator, Suffolk struggles to hang on to the reins of power in a teetering world. What is he willing to sacrifice for King and Realm? His own power, position, or wealth? Amidst the pomp and pageantry of royal marriage negotiations, betrothels, and weddings, Will and Hugh uncover greed, corruption, and self-interest. But will they also find treason?

This book was released on 2015-11-23 with total page 268 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Life and Times of a Baby Boomer will make you laugh, but it should also make you angry. Part memoir, part philosophical musing, and part political-economy this book describes how The Baby Boomer generation experienced a life previously unknown by workers at any time before in history. It will take you on a journey through the Golden Age of Britain from 1945 to the neo-liberal economic catastrophe of the twenty first century as seen through the eyes of a Baby Boomer. Beginning with the origin of a Post War Consensus that couldn't be destroyed by those on the political right, it tells of the fracturing of that consensus and how Capital only needed to wait for an opportunity in order to reverse all the gains that workers had achieved post 1945. The book weaves humour and sadness in the life of a baby boomer in changing times, and along the way explores the flaws in neo-liberal economics.

This book was released on 2013-05-01 with total page 122 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Some deep alternative current has begun flowing out of the spiritual adventures and identity struggles of recent generations. Of course, we didn't create the conditions or questions of this new age; we got caught in them. The ground shifted, the old gods departed, the economic and political utopias crumbled, and the traditional answers were washed away. We didn't leave home; home left us. How did a nice Jewish boy from Nebraska become a Buddhist in California? Join Wes "Scoop" Nisker as he takes us on a hilarious, wild ride from West to East and back again in his quest for true self and enlightenment. Combining the best elements of memoir and social commentary, Nisker uses his own story to illuminate the Baby Boomers' roots of spiritual hunger in postwar America. His journey begins in middle America (Nebraska to be exact) in the middle of the twentieth century, travels through the heyday of the Beats and the Hippies, the birth of the modern environmental movement, and winds up in the current epicenter of Buddhism in the West—California. Full of colorful and immediately recognizable figures of art, religion, and popular culture—from Alfred E. Newman to Allen Ginsberg—The Big Bang, the Buddha, and the Baby Boom is a guided tour of both the outer and inner move-ments that have culminated in the growing culture of Western Buddhism—a lasting, vivid picture of how the Baby Boom generation came to be identified with spiritual seeking, how they went about the search, what they have found and created, and what their true legacy is.

Download or read book A Baby Boomer s Story written by Gary Dixon and published by Dog Ear Publishing. This book was released on 2011-11 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book is about an era in our country when American children received more freedom than any other time in American history. After the Vietnam War ended, some American Baby Boomers totally abused this freedom. This book contains many stories about some of those Baby Boomers who were taking full advantage of these times, with no regret or regard of the consequences. Many of the stories you will read about are unethical, immoral, and sometimes disturbing. This book is about a Baby Boomers life, and many of the unique people and events which occurred through these times. You will also read about certain subjects such as sex, drugs, and rock and roll, which were the trademarks of that era. The Baby Boomers not only broke all the rules which took generations to establish: They set new trends and guidelines for many generations to come. They also created a whole new way of life for the American child. Originally from the suburbs of Detroit Michigan, Gary Dixon managed to escape the magnetism of the big city life. He now calls Clearwater Florida his home. From a family of nine children, his family could definitely be considered a Baby Boomer family. With the Baby Boom era in full force, there were not too many places in America to elude the temptations of recreational drug use, and the casual sex scene. Since the Baby Boomers created this new kind of lifestyle, almost every young person in America became a part of it. Gary Dixon and many of his friends not only became a part it, they took it to a whole new level. Living through this era, his life became very unique and eccentric, and he developed many stories along the way. He would like to share these stories with anyone interested, or any other Baby Boomers who grew up through these times.

Book excerpt: Canadian baby boomers now range in age from their mid-40s to mid-60s. This confident and rebellious generation has broken new ground at every stage of life; late middle-age and retirement will be no different. Most boomers are healthier than their grandparents could have hoped to be at the same age. Some have made the pursuit of physical, mental, and spiritual health an all-consuming occupation. They're having a great time and intend to experience the next 30 years not as a decline into infirmity, but as the satisfying second half of their adult lives. Stayin' Alive will look into the future and speculate what the aging of the boomers will mean for public policy, consumer marketing, the world of work, investment, philanthropy, tourism, retirement living (here and abroad), health care, and the rituals associated with death.
