    The Dictionary of Posh -...

    The Dictionary of Posh serves as an essential guide to the (ab)use of many English words by the decidedly up-market and the resultant — and endangered — language they speak: Posh.
    
    Hugh Kellett hilariously captures the spirit and nuances of those who speak Posh and, allied with Oliver Preston's brilliantly accurate cartoons, this book is the key to understanding and interpreting this language ?— literally with tongue-in-cheek.
    
    Hidden within normal English is a separate language still spoken by those born with silver spoons in their mouths. It's called Posh. A word of English can be spelt the same but mean something completely different in Posh. If you say the word 'Mention' in English, people will understand 'Remark upon'; but in Posh this means a large house. Say 'Ace' and speakers of Posh will think you are referring to a cold thing one's butler puts in one's G&T.

    “A destination book filled with tales of intrigue and eccentricity . . . [about] a distinct strain of hot tamales born deep in the Mississippi Delta.” —Eat Y’all 
     
    Several theories surround the traditional Delta tamale. Some trace it back to Mexican and Italian immigrants, while others say the Delta version of the hand-held meal is a spin on the old African American food called “cush.” One thing not disputed is the popularity. From hot tamale legends Joe Pope, Shine Thornton and the Scott family to current chefs, the traditions and the secret recipes live on. Writer and historian Anne Martin showcases the stories behind the traditional Delta hot tamale, as well as the countless variations of the delicacy found within the region. 
     
    “Author Anne Martin explains in her new book about the Mississippi Delta’s own version of hot tamales and why they have remained a staple of Delta cuisine for generations . . . Even if you’ve never tasted ‘the Delta’s favorite food,’ Martin’s book will have you running for the nearest hot tamale stand.” —Today in Mississippi 
     
     
     
    “Delta Hot Tamales: History, Stories & Recipes is not a traditional cookbook by any means. The book uses local food as a lens to explore the rich culture and history of an often misunderstood area in an often misunderstood state.” —Eat Y’all 
     
    “Serves up a historical record and a thorough look at the current status of this distinctive culinary treat.” —Clarion Ledger

    With his no-holds-barred delivery and unique worldview, Paul Mooney continues to stir anger, generate laughter, and provoke thought while attempting to tear down racial and social barriers through his juicy memoir about his years writing comedy with the likes of Richard Pryor, Redd Foxx, the Wayans' Brothers, and Dave Chappelle.For more than forty years—whether writing for Richard Pryor and Saturday Night Live or performing stand-up to sold-out crowds around the country—Paul Mooney has been provocative, incisive, and absolutely hilarious. His comedy has always been indisputably real and raw, reflecting race issues in America, and this fascinating, fearless new memoir continues that unapologetically candid tradition. While other stars soared only to crash and burn, Paul Mooney has stayed chiefly behind the scenes, and he’s got a lifetime of stories to show for it. As head writer for The Richard Pryor Show, he helped tear down racial barriers and change the course of comedy. He helped Robin Williams and Sarah Bernhard break into show business. He paved the way for superstars like Eddie Murphy. Few have witnessed as much comedy history as Mooney; even fewer could recount it with such riotous honesty and depth of insight. He reveals the truth about his celebrated partnership with the brilliant, self-destructive Richard Pryor, from their first meeting to the very last joke, and reflects on some of his most notorious moments. Decades ago, Paul Mooney set out not just make audiences laugh but to make them think. Black Is the New White is his blisteringly funny, no-holds-barred memoir of how he continues to succeed wildly at both.

    Life is sometimes a never-ending haze of mundane, meaningless activities for many of us. It makes sense why our bodies are complaining by getting sick so frequently and why our mental health is deteriorating. 
      
     Let's focus on the Japanese instead. There is another key to their long lives besides only their traditional, healthful food. 
      
     You can use it even though that secret is deeply ingrained in Japanese culture. 
      
     Ikigai - The common translation of this difficult Japanese concept is ""a reason for being"". You won't have to worry about finding inspiration or overcoming ennui once you've discovered your Ikigai. You simply do what you enjoy doing, and since you are such a skilled professional, other people really pay you a LOT OF MONEY for it! 
      
     In this book, you will: 
      
     Understand how finding your Ikigai will make you happy and rich. 
     Learn how to achieve flow, a state of focused productivity. 
     Cope with life's challenges like a Japanese philosopher. 
     Become strong and resilient because you'll never lose sight of your purpose. 
     Use your newly-found potential to transform your life. 
      
     Finding your Ikigai can be challenging and often painful, especially when you realize how many years you've wasted by not living out your genuine purpose. It's never too late to start, though, and it's totally worth the effort!"
