Summary

Life is ripe with good times and plenty of beer when Mrs. Feeley welcomes her new friend, the musical Miss Tinkham, to share her San Diego home and junkyard, Noah’s Ark. It’s not long before the gourmet culinarian Mrs. Rasmussen moves in, too, and the three elderly ladies bask in their joie de vivre. But the party is cut short when they discover the property taxes have been pocketed by a swindling lawyer. The three wisecracking women must use their collective smarts to raise the money before they lose their home—and maybe fit in a trip to Tijuana if they can earn a little extra.   With this first book of Mary Lasswell’s to feature the “Arkies,” you’ll be hard pressed to not grin along with the charm of Lasswell’s characters. Go back to the ’40s in this authentic piece of Americana and see how the story of your new three favorite ladies begins.

    From Casablanca to The Hustler, from Moby Dick to How I Made $1,000,000 Playing Poker, these widely varied musings address the entire range of human emotion—the highs of excitement of the “juice” down to the depths of despair of losing. Covered here are gaming’s universality and history, superstition and luck, players and places, and also every game, from the lowliest back-alley crap shoot to the highest-stakes poker contest and everything in between.You’ll find quotable phrases from luminaries like Plato and Tom Wolfe, along with the hard-scrabble advice of Minnesota Fats and Nick the Greek, and humor and pith from the likes of Woody Allen, Charles Bukowski, David Mamet, Groucho Marx, Hunter S. Thompson, and many, many more!

    Since 2004 in the UK, the Centre of Applied Animal Ethology (COAPE) has been developing EMRA™, a revolutionary and highly successful way of treating behaviour problems in companion animals. EMRA™ is based on emotional assessment of the individual dog or cat rather than the quasi-diagnoses of behaviour problems of old that have often lead to standardised and unnecessarily complicated approaches to treatment. EMRA™ is a practical, easy to use, yet powerful approach that assists the therapist in identifying key emotional aspects of a problem behaviour and the factors reinforcing it, and defines how best to approach precise treatment. It is a kind and effective holistic method that enables the therapist to develop bespoke treatment plans for all common pet behaviour problems, and helps unravel and treat more complex and bizarre challenges far more effectively.  Simply by placing how the pet feels at the heart of the treatment, the EMRA™ approach can take the pet, owner and behaviourist on a journey that is always enlightening and often fun and surprising on the pathway to improved behaviour and relationships.

    Penguins hate zombies. They also hate serpents, bad haircuts, sock monkeys, leprechauns, Halloween, oil rigs, vampire penguins, and mermaids. They really hate clowns, but they really like capes, balloons, and free vacations. This quirky collection reveals the discriminating tastes of these adorable flightless Antarctic birds who encounter odd foes (snow sharks, beavers, cowboys, samurai...), but still manage to enjoy the little things in life. With wit, humor, and the occasional alien invasion, Greg Stones's paintings capture the playfully absurd life of penguins.
