Granny always has just the thing for a nasty cold or a grazed knee. Her pantry is not only packed with tasty treats for hungry grandchildren, but also just the right ingredient to soothe an angry rash or calm an upset tummy. Expensive medicines can do the trick, but often we use them once or twice and then they stay at the back of a cupboard, gathering dust. Granny's Natural Remedies is a treasure trove of effective alternative treatments for everything from bee stings to burns and headaches to hiccups, using only the contents of the average kitchen or garden. If you don't know your aloe from your elbow, follow Granny's advice and discover the wonderful healing properties of everyday ingredients such as nutmeg, honey and garlic, and learn how to take care of your family using safe and cost-effective traditional cures ... just like Granny.

Granny is a part of me and a part of many others who lived in the Deep South some 50 years ago or more. Her ancestors were of Scottish & English Descent. She is "overindulged" with superstitions and folktales. This book is a compilation of 'sayings' and tales I have heard over the years. Most of them actually came from my Mother and my Grandmother; and are now being retold through Granny. Many of these sayings are commonly known, but may vary with their phrases or even their meanings.

Longlisted for the 2014 National Book Award From the winner of the Pulitzer Prize: a powerful, engrossing new novel—the life and times of a remarkable family over three transformative decades in America. On their farm in Denby, Iowa, Rosanna and Walter Langdon abide by time-honored values that they pass on to their five wildly different children: from Frank, the handsome, willful first born, and Joe, whose love of animals and the land sustains him, to Claire, who earns a special place in her father’s heart. Each chapter in Some Luck covers a single year, beginning in 1920, as American soldiers like Walter return home from World War I, and going up through the early 1950s, with the country on the cusp of enormous social and economic change. As the Langdons branch out from Iowa to both coasts of America, the personal and the historical merge seamlessly: one moment electricity is just beginning to power the farm, and the next a son is volunteering to fight the Nazis; later still, a girl you’d seen growing up now has a little girl of her own, and you discover that your laughter and your admiration for all these lives are mixing with tears. Some Luck delivers on everything we look for in a work of fiction. Taking us through cycles of births and deaths, passions and betrayals, among characters we come to know inside and out, it is a tour de force that stands wholly on its own. But it is also the first part of a dazzling epic trilogy—a literary adventure that will span a century in America: an astonishing feat of storytelling by a beloved writer at the height of her powers. From the Hardcover edition.

Lessons in Forging Happy Relationships and True Love... Lola is confused, and right about to give up on love. Up until now, it has served very little purpose in her life, she reasons; well except that every guy whom she gave a chance to, was skillful at breaking her heart. Before she finally decides to give up on this fairy-tale like concept of love, she decides to write to Granny. If there's anyone she knows who has given love a shot, and who was still happily married, it was her grandmother. What does she know, that Lola doesn't? You don't get more in-depth information than this, a heart-felt written note from a grandmother to her favorite granddaughter. It's so intimate yet direct- almost to the point where you're jealous of Lola. But here's the thing: we all can be Lola! We are all little girls, screaming and longing to be heard; although covered up in pretty clothes and airing a sassy gait. We have been heartbroken or crushed, and many of us open our hearts only partly to those who come our way. You might have even made peace with the fact that you would never find love again. What if you discover that true love can be yours, and you can find Mr. Right? In this brilliantly written book, you are given a choice: come face-to-face with your fears and your tears, finally bring out all of the dirty laundry in the form of toxic emotions with which you currently battle, with the aim of dismantling them; or stay as you are, completely unchanged, unyielding and unrepentant in the face of the possibility of mature, dependable love. What would be your choice? I hope you choose to deal with your fears, battles and deep-seated issues. And Nana is here all along, guiding you, just like Lola, on this ride to forever. Are you ready to find your soulmate, your Mr. Right, your dream man and be happy with him? The next chapter of YOUR life is about to begin. Buy the book and just use these relationships tips and dating secrets in practice. I wish you good luck!
