Was It Really Like That

A semi-trailer load of watermelons had just arrived from a Queensland grower and a chain gang was being organised ... He was shaped like an apple, was very likeable and very much like the Falstaffian figure I have previously mentioned.

This book gives a startling account of many aspects of the author's life and an insight into the life of a peasant family, who migrated to Australia in the mid 1950's, leaving everything behind to face an uncertain future in a strange and unfamiliar country on the far side of the world. There were no guarantees of rich rewards or promises of an easier life, just a sincere hope for a chance at a new start, especially for their children. There was anticipation and there was fear, but it was their hope and aspirations which sustained them and gave them courage. The experience was a daunting one for any migrant of those times, but the contributions made to Australian life must not go unnoticed. The changes were many, as were the trials and tribulations. This book also gives a `potted' insight into the author's early childhood and adulthood; his memoirs, a record of events of which he has a reasonably intimate knowledge being based upon personal observations and events. Gino also remembers all the good and fun times, and he portrays these beautifully and graphically through the many characters you will encounter in this book. He brings them to life and engages the reader, simply by the humour and by the special qualities that each one of these characters magnifies and how all of these experiences impacted on his own life. To some extent it's an autobiography of how all this impacted on him from boyhood and beyond shaping his life in ways he could not have imagined. A reflection on simpler times, coupled with the advances of technology, give an interesting and, perhaps, timely reminder of where we have been, where we are, and what could lie ahead for all of us at different stages of our own lives. The numerous old photos, cleverly scattered throughout this book, bring to life some of the realities of the times.

Intimate behind-the-scenes recollections of Ronald Reagan by those who knew him during his early political career in California—photos included! People often wonder: “What was Reagan like privately?” “How did he treat his children?” “How did he handle pressure?” “How did he handle danger?” “How did he treat his staff?” “How did he handle difficult, almost impossible to deal with, legislators?” This book collects reminiscences from those who were there, working in a wide variety of positions, recounting how the former actor, governor of California, and future president of the United States used humor to disarm his most ardent critics and tenacious opponents. In this book, you’ll discover observations about the close bond between Ronald and Nancy Reagan; the gentlemanly character of the governor who “never equated disagreement with disloyalty;” the way Reagan thrived on being underestimated; the untold story behind the secret plan hatched by former Air Force Secretary Thomas C. Reed and a handful of dedicated insiders to launch Reagan’s unequivocal, arguably first campaign for President of the United States in 1968; and much more.

Does God Really Like Me

On the outside, it is the boss who is ruthless and the female employee who is beautiful, fascinating and a bit distracted, a bit resigned to what life still has to offer. Deep down inside, instead, they hide two hurricanes – or rather, two big hearts always in search of something different... perhaps deep down – in search of themselves. Milena is the young assistant to the feared Richard Bredson, one of the top tycoons in Italy. There blossoms between them an office romance, an extraordinary attraction at the edge of any human reason, which devours them until they are left stripped of any prejudice and at the same time helps them to rediscover their self-esteem and courage and to finally rediscover themselves like they would never have believed possible. Through this fantastic, marvellous, sudden Love, Richard and Milena simply rediscover themselves. To no longer lose themselves. Because love is also a voyage... marvellous, when made with the right person.“His sweet mouth searches for mine, I moan in surprise, I cling to him tightly opening myself up like a flower, now I’m ready to give him all the purity and sweetness that I have kept for years in search of the right person. I have never kissed anyone under the Autumn rain...try it, it’s very beautiful. – Mr. Bredson, the cold one – I whisper with my tongue glued to his, I have discovered that it is my new favourite taste, I could spend hours just enjoying it. Oh, my God, so much emotion! If it wasn’t for the rain that is refreshing my body and soul I would burst into thousands of pieces with joy, bathing the universe with all the colours of love... Richard kisses me and kisses me as if he can’t stop... our mouths that have only recently become acquainted take up again the dance interrupted by my absurd fears. We bite each other with our teeth and with our lips, we lick the saliva and drops of slightly salty water that flood our faces, we kiss each other on our cheeks, our eyelids, our foreheads, our chins, our tongues and our teeth.We are one, one being of light, desire, love and above all – infinite, unexpressed need for love...”

For many, God is a distant, frightening entity. God may be personal, but they would not think of him as having a personality, much less an enjoyable, friendly, relatable personality. Author S. J. Hill has spent years studying, and more importantly experiencing this topic. He has counseled many people, young and old, whose ideas about God left them frightened and hopeless. He has also experience the presence and love of a wonderful heavenly father who has a fascinating personality. The result is his book What’s God Really Like?: Unique Insights into His Fascinating Personality. What if God can laugh and dance? What if the One True God is affectionate rather than angry, beautiful rather than mean and ugly, deliberately weak instead of a cosmic bully? S. J. Hill pulls back one veil after another, allowing you to see God as few authors have ever described. This God is actually joyful and beautiful beyond anything you’ve possibly ever imagined. This book is a powerful tool for personal study. As you read, you will be ushered out of the hog pen of prodigal living and personal striving and into the healing arms of a Father who wants to dance with His sons and daughters. It is also a powerful tool for teaching and ministry. The way we think of God will impact our experience and our ability to live a fulfilling Christian life. The way a teacher thinks and teaches about God can be either helpful or very destructive to those he or she teaches. Imagine what could happen in our churches if we gave witness to a God such as this. Whether you’re reading it for yourself or using it in teaching, What’s God Really Like? will change your perception of God and it will change you!

And Adam would never end up in a fist fight with Lita's boyfriend. Nope, never. Adam and Lita might never agree on what happened, but in this hilarious story from Pete Hautman, they manage to give the world a little more insight into what boys and girls are really looking for.
