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.

    The seahorse is an amazing fish that is a wonderful aquarium inhabitant despite the fact that they are not as easy to care for as most fish. There are approximately 52 species to delight the aquarist and they can be kept on their own or with other fish and certain invertebrates. 
    This book will introduce you to these fish by looking at the different species, discussing their appearance and biology, typical seahorse behaviour, their feeding requirements, one-of-a-kind reproductive cycle and other things that make these fish unique. 
    It will also tell you what you need to know in order to decide whether or not this is the pet for you and, if it is, how to select your seahorse, what you need to buy before you bring it home, and how to take proper care of it and keep it happy and healthy. 
    The serious hobbyist must know what these fish need with regards to their environment. All the necessary equipment and water and other parameters are examined as the quality of the water and the general environment has a crucial bearing on the health and happiness of seahorses. 
    The seahorse is unfortunately susceptible to a number of different types of bacterial, parasitic and fungal infections and infestations. Anyone who is serious about having a marine tank generally and seahorses specifically needs to know what to look for and how to deal with common ailments. 
    This book also contains helpful information on their reproductive behaviour, gestation, birth and on caring for the fry for those who are interested in breeding or find themselves the proud foster parent of babies that were not expected! 
    Other areas of discussion are the fish and invertebrates that the seahorse gets on with and hints and tips to make your life easier as you select your seahorse and afterwards.

    Have you heard the one about the lesbian pixie called Tinker Bull, who takes on a shipload of Roman Catholic pirates without the help of her old friend Peter Plan, who has become an investment banker?  Or the one about the Crocodazzi, an insatiable investigative journalist who happens to be a crocodile? The punch lines are all in the story called "T-Bull and the Lost Men"--a fun house mirror masquerading as a book.
    
    Of course it's more than just punch lines: there's its educational slant, too!  Like discovering how certain pirates can be natural capitalists, and how organic pixie dust is made.  Best of all, you learn how Tinker Bull's restless, gutsy temperament spurs her companions to risk their grim, tepid comforts for the barest chance of realizing their hearts' desires.
    
    It is satire that cuts close to the skull-and-crossbones of organized religion, capitalism, academia, and the media.

    Fly-by-the-seat-of-her-pants mom Jennifer Magnuson knew her spoiled suburban brood needed a wake-up call—she just couldn’t find the time to fit one in. But when her husband was offered a position in India, she saw it for what it was: the perfect opportunity for her family to unplug from their over-scheduled and pampered lives in Nashville and gain some much-needed perspective. What she didn’t realize was how much their time in India would transform her as well.
    
    A combination of Eat, Pray, Love and Modern Family, with a dash of Chelsea Handler thrown in for good measure, Peanut Butter and Naan is Magnuson’s hilarious look at the chaos of parenting against a backdrop of malaria, extreme poverty, and no conveniences of any kind—and her story of rediscovering herself and revitalizing her connection with those she loves the most. In India, after years of parenting under a cloud of anxiety, Magnuson found a renewed sense of adventure and fearlessness (a discovery that was totally worth the many months of hiding anti-malarial medication in her kids’ morning oatmeal), and started to become the mother she’d always hoped to be. Hers is a story about motherhood that will not only make you laugh and nod with recognition—it will inspire you to fall in love with your own family all over again.
