Product Description for the Book Emma's Birthday - Learning to Be Gracious
Clarence Thomas once said that "good manners will open doors that the best education cannot". These words speak volumes, as in today's diverse and ever-changing society we as individuals are evaluated not only based on what we know, but on how we regard the feelings of others.
As parents we tend to more focus on our child's academic /physical skill set, and in turn neglect very important emotionally based skills. These skills will not only improve your child's ability to foster long lasting relationships with their peers, but will enable them to see the world from an angle which inevitably forges your child into a moral upstanding adult.
Lessons for life are usually taught using the most simple of occurrences within the human experience, and this book focuses on how your child should react when receiving a gift they do not appreciate.
"Emma's Birthday - Learning to Be Gracious" is entertaining, easy to ...

THE DEADLY FLING. A riveting dark story that will keep you in... suspense.
No one is born a killer. A baby doesn't enter into the world with a killer's instinct or a thirst for blood. Something happens in one's life that creates the canvas that a killer's mind is built upon. We often focus on what a person has done rather than questioning the motive or the reason. There is no justification for murder. There is never a good enough excuse to deliberately take a person's life. Hurt people will often hurt others and the person committing the crime can often be a victim of the same offense. The short stories you will read are written from many different perspectives and are all pieces of a bigger story. There will be stories of friendship, love, pain, addiction, revenge, regret and forgiveness. The first story begins with the murder of a 17-year-old boy with a promising future. Who killed the kid? Why was he murdered? There is never a good reason for crime, but there is always a reason. Prison is not only occupied by criminals. There are many innocent men and ...

Finding God in Everyday life is a book of stories about the small events in the writer's own life that have brought her closer to God. What is everyday life? It's the TV we watch and the books we read - it's the checkbook that won't balance and the car that won't start. It's getting up and the morning and going to bed at night and all the things that lie between.
St. Teresa of Avila wrote in her classic "Interior Castle" that God dwells in the center of our self. Finding God in everyday life is about finding God in our own true selves.
Too often we think of holiness as something lofty and distant. We gaze up at the Mountain where Jesus is teaching the beatitudes and forget it is up to us to bring that teaching down from the mountain, into our everyday life. Our holiness, or lack of it, lies in those small everyday things that make up our life. They are the ordinary events that comprise what St. Therese of Lisieux describes as her 'little way'.

A spiritual journey through the five stages of grief.
Tiny speck of hope
peeking through my window
tell me what you seek
there is nothing for you here
maybe you should leave.
I am just an ounce of emptiness
fading behind this dark
stay away from me

O' my foolish child
how do you not know?
You are the light I come for
and yet you have no clue
this spark you see in me
is a reflection of you.

The entitled Las Vegas Golden Knights got the best players ever in any NHL draft; they are a supremely cocky, hard-working and resilient bunch with a huge chip on its collective shoulder. Perhaps the NHL teams that Vegas "raped" in the expansion draft should play the Knights with an equally big chip on their own collective shoulders.
Heading into their first season, the Golden Knights were listed as 500 to 1 long shots to win the Stanley Cup and as a result, sports books in Las Vegas were due to take quite a hit had they pulled off the win. Director of trading Nick Bogdanovich said, "the estimates I heard around town of $5 or $6 million losses sounded about right," adding that it was the biggest liability he'd seen since William Hill U.S. was formed.
As the Golden Knights progressed through the season and proved to be a veritable force in the league, odds makers had to find creative ways to hedge against the potential of a Stanley Cup win. Some sports books offered a "field" bet ...

The Mayflower was an English ship that famously transported the first English Puritans, known today as the Pilgrims, from Plymouth, England to the New World in 1620. There were 102 passengers, and the crew is estimated to have been about 30, but the exact number is unknown. This voyage has become a cultural icon in the history of the United States, with its story of death and survival in the harsh New England winter environment. The culmination of the voyage was the signing of the Mayflower Compact, an event which established a rudimentary form of democracy, with each member contributing to the welfare of the community.

I am a ghost writer.
After heart valve replacement surgery in August of 2004, I suffered a small stroke and slipped into a coma. I died from surgical complications on October 5, 2004, in Westwood, California at the age of 82.
In life, I wore a rumpled suit with one hand perpetually loosening my trademark red necktie. I took the stage as a hapless, self-deprecating Everyman slapped around by life and searching in vain for acceptance.
After seeing the Francis Ford Coppola movie The Godfather in 1972, I came up with a new angle that would reshape my routine. All I heard was the word "respect." I thought to myself: It sounds like a funny image -- a guy who gets no respect.
In 1995, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences rejected my application for membership. A letter from Roddy McDowall of the actors branch explained that I had failed to execute enough of the kinds of roles that allow a performer to demonstrate the mastery of his craft. It was the ultimate rejection, but I ...
