The best baseball novel of the season - ANY season. No fans are more perpetually disappointed than those of the Chicago Cubs-a team that has not won a World Series since 1908. And chief among the forlorn is Jack Frost. From his assigned seat in the cafeteria at the Bide Awhile Rest Home, Jack reads the sports pages every day and checks out the standings. In the middle of June, the Cubs are already thirteen and a half games out. Last place again-or rather, still. Into this sea of depression drops one Clarence Beazely, a new resident at the home and a baseball fan. But Beazely is not your everyday fan, nor is he your everyday rest home resident. He has extraordinary powers, and in a very friendly way he offers Jack a tantalizing deal. Of course it comes at a cost, but if the price seems a little steep, does it really matter as long as the Cubs might have a chance to be... WORLD CHAMPIONS? "Mort makes a fascinating read out of every subject he takes up." The Associated Press. "If onetest of [Mort's] skill is to keep the reader turning pages after he guesses the ending, the acid test is to get a reader hooked even though he knows what happens before he opens the book.

We live in a time when an inductive study that couples scholarly research and life application is not just desired but necessary. As women we live out our theology as wives, mothers, daughters and sisters and so we must think through our spirituality both thoughtfully and purposefully. ------- The questions really lead the reader to a deeper understanding and appropriation of the passage. --Tremper Longman III, Biblical Scholar & Author Free At Last was more thought-provoking than the other Ladies Bible studies that I've done over the years. --Cheryl (student) "Wonderful material…works well within the scope of a small group." --Linda (student) "The scholarship and the practicality of this study was a good balance.

What is it like to live on an island without a bridge? For some, the commute over Narragansett Bay by ferry is a daily reunion with island neighbors. For others of us, piloting a small boat challenges our skills and surprises us with unexpected adventure. Separation from daily life on the mainland breeds a unique culture. Here on Prudence Island we have our own lingo and our island ways. Our language is sprinkled with references to wind direction, temperature, tides and time. We savor night walks on the beach, a run on a dirt road, and stopping to talk to a turtle. Kids and adults build relationships, unique friendships that leap barriers that ordinarily separate us from those who might become our friends. Home at Last emanates from Prudence Island an island without a bridge the place where we live.

Life at the End of the Rod: Tales of a Fisherman is the lifelong journey of Robert Veltidi as he grows into a man. The outdoors was an important part of his upbringing, and he transported that love of the outdoors into his way of life. This book begins with his earliest recollection of fishing, takes us through a time of self-discovery and exploration, then to a rebirth of his love of fishing. Then the author leaps back into fishing as a means of relaxation and camaraderie between him and his father and brothers. Later on, after the death of his father, his son joins the group, along with a host of friends of all the Veltidi boys. Each story is the tale of one time that the author feels either fishing has affected his life or that he affected somebody elses life by fishing. My Fishing Beginnings is the authors first recollections of his fishing life. It introduces you to the boy that he was and later the man he would become. Like the prologue, My Fishing Beginnings, gives you the background information about the people in the rest of the stories. The Home Pond is a tribute to the authors grandparents. They played a huge role in his early childhood. Although the story takes place on one brief day, it depicts life in a rural area in the early 1950s. Huck Grows Up takes place over two summers and tells of the fishing adventures of the author when he was first given his independence and allowed to go out fishing and into town on his own. It was a turning point in his life when childhood dreams change and his life takes a new direction. The Norma K is the authors first experience into ocean fishing. Its interesting because the story is divided into three sub-chapters: The Norma K, The Norma K II, and The Norman K III. All three were party boats out of Point Pleasant, New Jersey, that the author fished on in various times in his life, first with his father, then with his wife, and finally with his son. All three experiences were surprisingly similar in some ways and subtlety different in others. The Norma K is the last story of the author as a child and it finishes up with him as an adult. The remaining stories depict the author as an adult or as near to one as he can be while still having as much fun as he can while fishing. My Turn is the first story the author ever wrote. It came after the death of his father, and it was part of the grieving process the author went through. The story tells of the changing of the guard when the son becomes the leader, and mentor, and fulfills one of his fathers lifelong dreams with surprising results. Fixing a Roof is a whimsical tale of grown men deciding to play hooky for the day and go fishing. This is where you meet Alan, the authors brother, and are introduced to one of Alans friends. Lake Ontario is an ongoing process; it started in 1987 when the authors father died and chronicled the first eight years of an ongoing trip that continues even to today. In this tale you become more acquainted with Doug, the authors son, and he becomes a vital part of the rest of the saga. New Jersey Trout is the exploration into new waters and the discovery of a whole new fishery. Along the way, the author meets new friends and bonds closely with his son. Tiger Muskies is the start of something new; the author has stepped up and bought a bigger boat. The small lake fishing and wading by the edge of the streams has been replaced by fishing for trophy sport fish. It is also the second story written by the author. Thoughts on Retirement is a reflective essay that was written one afternoon in August when the author was sitting down in his shed by the lake and was a little scared of what the future would bring. For the first time in fifty years the author was free of any obligations. Shark Fishing at Montau

The nation didn't know it, but 1960 would change American film forever, and the revolution would occur nowhere near a Hollywood set. With the opening of the New Yorker Theater, a cinema located at the heart of Manhattan's Upper West Side, cutting-edge films from around the world were screened for an eager audience, including the city's most influential producers, directors, critics, and writers. Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese, Susan Sontag, Andrew Sarris, and Pauline Kael, among many others, would make the New Yorker their home, trusting in the owners' impeccable taste and incorporating much of what they viewed into their work. In this irresistible memoir, Toby Talbot, co-owner and proud "matron" of the New Yorker Theater, reveals the story behind Manhattan's wild and wonderful affair with art-house film. With her husband Dan, Talbot showcased a range of eclectic films, introducing French New Wave and New German cinema, along with other groundbreaking genres and styles. As Vietnam protests and the struggle for civil rights raged outside, the Talbots also took the lead in distributing political films, such as Bernard Bertolucci's Before the Revolution, and documentaries, such as Shoah and Point of Order. Talbot enhances her stories with selections from the New Yorker's essential archives, including program notes by Jack Kerouac, Jules Feiffer, Peter Bogdanovich, Jonas Mekas, Jack Gelber, and Harold Humes. These artifacts testify to the deeply engaged and collaborative spirit behind each showing, and they illuminate the myriad and often entertaining aspects of theater operation. All in all, Talbot's tales capture the highs and lows of a thrilling era in filmmaking.

It was around 3rd grade when Tamalas sister, Jordan, her cousin, Autumn, and she used to write and sing songs. They used to say they were going to become a band some day. Well, that didnt happen but they did write their own song lyrics. After Tamala and her sister moved away from their cousin, she continued writing-song lyrics, poems, quotes, thoughts and questions on just about everything. She wrote things based on her perception of her own life and others lives and well as her day-dreaming thoughts. Everything in the book was written by her at some point between 3rd grade and now. She is still writing and will probably continue for a long time, so expect another book to come out a few years from now!
