Summary

A pediatrician shares accounts of the humorous and heartwarming things his young patients have said to him over the course of his career. 
 
“Hey, doctor, I want to tell you something!” 
 
For fifty-four years, kids have shared with pediatrician Arnold Tanis stories, questions, and bold pronouncements about their childhood worlds. In between treating them, the good doctor wrote down what many of them said. Three generations of patients offer memorable and downright funny observations and opinions about all sorts of things: shots, school, their brothers and sisters, growing up, and even Dr. Tanis himself and whether he can sing as well as he thinks he does. The parents also chime in, both to complain about all their kids put them through and to celebrate how well they eventually turn out. 
 
A tireless, lifelong advocate of child safety, Dr. Tanis’s impact on his patients and their families spans decades. This book is a testament to his career and a memorable glimpse of the warm and sometimes crazy world of a singing pediatrician.

    One Hundred Years of Exile: In Search of My Father’s Russia is the story of one woman’s journey through 100 years of history to find peace with her father.Tania Romanov Amochaev and her father were both exiled from their homelands as infants; both knew life in refugee camps. Their shared fate does not lead to mutual understanding.The family’s immigration to San Francisco heralded a promising new future—but while Tania just wanted to be an American, her father could not trust that this was his final asylum. His fears and his resistance to assimilation leave Tania with deep resentment toward him and her Russian heritage.Decades later, his unexpected death exposes Tania’s open wounds and a host of unanswered questions about her father and his story.A serendipitous meeting with a last surviving member of the Russian royal family, followed by a baffling error that miraculously connects her with unknown relatives, catapults Tania on a quest for answers in her father’s homeland.Tania’s story proves inseparable from Russia’s, featuring Cossacks who fled revolution, a family who survived Stalin, and a family of royal exiles, culminating in a meeting between princess and peasant.One Hundred Years of Exile is a moving story of how revisiting the past can bring not only forgiveness and redemption, but something far more powerful as well.

    In recent years, travel has become increasingly more popular. Instead of buying expensive jewelry, the latest car or designer goods, people are now opting to buy new experiences. Whether you are just out of education, just got married, have a young family or are in retirement, everyone wants to travel. 
    However, travel can be expensive. In recent years, the fares for flights have increased dramatically. The days of flying for rock-bottom prices have sadly gone. 
    Or so we thought. 
    There are numerous ways that you can fly for reduced fares or for free, providing you know the right places to go and the right techniques to use. There are certain websites you can go to that offer highly reduced fares and even airline error fares, giving you the opportunity to fly for the cheapest prices imaginable. 
    One minute you’re sitting behind a screen, the next you’re lounging by the pool in some exotic location with a cocktail in hand, laughing to yourself when the person next door to you says they’ve spent thousands, while you’ve spent only a fraction of that price. 
    It does not need to be expensive to fly. You can travel from city to city, from country to country, for low prices if you know what you are doing. There are certain days of the week when it’s cheaper to fly, certain airlines are known for offering reduced prices, and there are websites that cater to budget airlines. 
    From this audiobook, you will discover how to fly around the world for ridiculously small amounts of money, and even for free.

    This ghost guide explores pubs and taverns from Rhode Island to Maine that serve up spirits of all kinds—includes photos!   The taverns of colonial New England were gathering places for Revolutionary Patriots, nerve centers for spreading vital news and sanctuaries for outlawed organizations. Perhaps inevitably, certain pubs bore witness to ghastly deeds and sorrowful tragedies. Some of them became tinged with the aura of the supernatural.   Through firsthand interviews with dozens of pub owners and employees, author Roxie J. Zwicker has discovered tales of hauntings in which bartenders have their drinks mysteriously upended, waitresses find dining room objects scattered about bizarrely and other staff and patrons catch sudden glimpses of ghostly figures. Haunted Pubs of New England reveals the spine-tingling lore lurking within New England's oldest taverns.
