Beasts Of Britain is a book by Andy McGrath, a Cryptozoology 'enthusiast' who has spent over 25 years of researching and obsessing about the unknown creatures living right under our noses here on this tiny island in the North Atlantic. From a wildlife point of view, the accepted fauna of The British Isles were discovered and catalogued in their finite and immovable state in the 19th century. Nothing has really been added to this list or considered worthy since and the continual reports of Water Monsters, Bigfoot, Mystery Big Cats and U.F.C's (Unidentified Flying Cryptids) are largely ignored or used as newspaper fillers to entertain us. Andy's focus is on current research and sightings, pictures, videos and eyewitness accounts of the many cryptids of the British Isles. Although vast advancements in science and technology have brought great discoveries in other lesser known parts of the world, our island lies largely underexplored and overlooked. At night, outside of the busy cities ...

The first pieces in this short collection have not been published before and were originally written for a fly-tying magazine. The author was invited to write them, having sent the editor a speculative letter - he does that a lot - but then heard nothing more. That happens a lot too. Not with The Angling Times, though, which commissioned the Bad Angler columns. A few of them are included here - the rest are collected in The Complete Bad Angler.
There follows an extract from Year of the Spider, which documents a year's fly fishing on the River Tees in the North-East of England using spider patterns from TE Pritt's 19th Century classic, Yorkshire Trout Flies.
The collection finishes with a recipe from Cooking for Dads - a book written at the behest of a publisher just before the worldwide financial crash pushed promises between gentlemen onto the back burner and then turned off the gas.

In January 1886, Evan Lewis used his dreaded stranglehold on Sorakichi Matsada. According to several newspapers, Lewis attempted to "strangle Sorakichi to death". The reaction was so strong, Lewis' pet move was banned in the rematch a month later. What Lewis did to Sorakichi Matsada in the return match would cement his reputation as a vicious submission expert.
Lewis continued wrestling for 13 more years including a two-year run as American Heavyweight Wrestling Champion. Lewis never really escaped the shadow of his actions in the Sorakichi Matsada matches becoming wrestling's first real villain. Lewis' reputation was not enhanced by his out of the ring actions.
This book will take you through a detailed account of Lewis' career inside and outside the ring. The reader can decide for themselves if Lewis' reputation was deserved or not.

They call it "The Greatest Sport on Earth" for a reason.
It just took me 26 years to figure out why.
If you live long enough, life will throw you to your back.
And when it does, you're much better off if you've wrestled.
You learn later in life how vital the disciplines of wrestling are, especially against a seemingly insurmountable opponent in a disease or illness.
Twenty-six years ago, my goal and mission in life was to win a New York State Wrestling Championship.
I committed myself to a lifestyle and made the sacrifices.
I put in the time. I had the hunger, the desire, and the determination, but I came up short.
For many years after I graduated it seemed like I got nothing out of my six years of total dedication to the sport; that the trade-off of what I gave and what I got in return to this sport was way out of whack.
I hated wrestling for it.
Until I had adversity in my life.
And slowly but surely, I started realizing how much the sport of wrestling has given ...

Football recruiting is big business for not only the colleges but for the players as well. While the value of a football scholarship varies based on factors like school and in-state versus out-of-state tuitions, you can be assured that it is worth anywhere from $80K to $200K. When you factor in "projected earnings" for players who would not have gotten an education without football, you could be looking at a value that easily exceeds one million dollars.
So what does it take to get that scholarship? What is it that those coaches are looking at when they go through their evaluations to decide whether you are worthy of not only playing for their program, but are worth the value of what they are going to be giving you in terms of education?
Coach Jim Baxter is a nationally published football recruiting analyst with more two decades of experience in the business of evaluating talent. The network of coaches who call on him for his evaluations and/or opinions on players is large and ...

So what do we parents usually do?
We neglect them, repress them, or neurotically try that one of our kids redeems us. The added value of this book relies on the friendly and colloquial language used by Hernan to share his experiences as a tennis player and father, and to pass on his wealth of knowledge, which was hardly gained through multiple frustrations.
His illustration of the fact that although it is hard for us to accept it, passion cannot be transferred, and as a consequence; if the fire of passion doesn't burn inside you, it cannot be taught.
Hernan does a great job laying out that you cannot force somebody to desire what he/she doesn't desire because you can just love what you don't love in a heartbeat.
Being a parent is a very hard task as well as it is being a son/daughter.
Even though the most common psychologic phenomenon is that kids feel identified with their parents, in many cases it is the parents who feel identified with the kids and aspire for them what they ...

Our deer camp, Camp Abahati, started in 1965. Since then we are in our 51st year of hunting the same piece of ground. Not many deer camps can lay claim to that, and two of the three original hunters are still hunting there. The group has grown over these 51 years to include two more Camp Elders - including yours truly - and their offspring, which now numbers 15 children and grandchildren.
There are stories that will excite you. Stories that will make you laugh. Stories that will make you shake your head and think, "did they REALLY do that?"
If you are a deer hunter, I know you will enjoy reading this tale. If you aren't a deer hunter, the stories of family and friends make for some great reading. It's not about the killing; it's about the hunting, the friendship, and the camaraderie.

Chelsea's steady, multi-trophy-winning ascent to football's summit has been well documented. In the modern Blues era, relegation is something that happens to other clubs, while a defeat to bitter London rivals Tottenham Hotspur is as rare an occurrence as a total eclipse of the sun. But life wasn't always quite so carefree at Stamford Bridge.
19 April 1975, Spurs beat Chelsea 2-0 at White Hart Lane -- all but preserving their own top-flight status, while effectively condemning the Blues to Division Two. Managing Chelsea for the first time that day was 35-year old Eddie McCreadie who'd already achieved cult hero status at the Bridge as an integral part of the swashbuckling kings of the King's Road Blues side that lit up the game in the mid-late '60s and early '70s.
Set against a gloomy backdrop of economic recession, trouble on the terraces, and a football club on the verge of bankruptcy, Eddie Mac, Eddie Mac forensically details how McCreadie placed his faith in young players and ...
