Summary

Kindhearted and loudmouthed Mrs. Feeley, Mrs. Rasmussen, and Miss Tinkham have only just set out on their long-awaited cross-country drive to the West Coast when the trouble begins. It’s bad enough that they wind up in a seedy, truck stop nightclub, but then it’s raided by the police! Thankfully, Chief Connolly can tell they’re decent folks and lets them off easy, but he needs a favor in return. He wants them to take a passenger on their trip; a dangerous passenger they’ll need to outwit before making it home.   Mary Lasswell is firing on all cylinders again in this madcap, slapstick, high-spirited adventure—the fourth to star Mrs. Feeley and friends.

    A definitive, full-color book to help bring the style of Nantucket Island into your home.There is something essentially charming about a simple cottage surrounded by a fence covered with roses. More than 1,200 of these houses can be found on Nantucket Island. Nowhere in this country are there more charming and diverse cottages featuring small pocket gardens and window boxes than on Nantucket.To a large extent, the character of the island is reflective of these little early homes. They were originally built by and for island residents at a time when islanders didn’t require, didn’t desire, or couldn’t afford anything larger.Living small, as typified by cottage living, has become the responsible, chic, innovative, and practical wave of the immediate future. Many homeowners are rethinking their needs in regard to space, opting for more quality and less quantity of space. They know that a house is more than square footage, and a small home is one that can be infused with special details and designed to accommodate the lifestyle of its occupants. Neither size nor volume has anything to do with style and comfort.The homes and gardens featured in Nantucket Cottages and Gardens reflect classic design elements that have been embraced in the past and continue to survive in the present. Throughout this book, the cottages of Nantucket will inspire those who are building new, renovating, or decorating a small home. When the quantity of space is pared down, more money can be spent on the things that give a house character, such as built-ins, weathered wood furniture, unique art pieces, and handmade textiles, to name a few.

    A century ago, outsiders saw China as a place where nothing ever changes. Today the country has become one of the most dynamic regions on earth. In Oracle Bones, Peter Hessler explores the human side of China's transformation, viewing modern-day China and its growing links to the Western world through the lives of a handful of ordinary people. In a narrative that gracefully moves between the ancient and the present, the East and the West, Hessler captures the soul of a country that is undergoing a momentous change before our eyes.

    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.
