In My Own Words:
Hokey as it may sound, because it has been so over used (and in dingbat fashion), I hope for world peace, one person and one day at a time. If we could all go back to our childhood thinking, let go of our egos and our need to control, and breath in peace and breathe out love, we would be healthier and a whole lot happier. Why the negativity? Why the competition? Sure, you have to function in t… Read more

Alien Legacy by John C. Macidull
Alien Legacy by John C. Macidull
5.0 out of 5 stars "Intelligent Fiction", Oct. 28 2012
While this 144 page adventure references alien spacecraft, it is NOT a sci-fi "the aliens have landed and are going to get you". It is a fictional adventure, hard-to-put-down espionage thriller. It is obviously well-researched and is strongly supported by the author's own experience as an aeronautical and aerospace engineer, international and domestic aircraft accident investigator, and so on. (His bio is in the back of the book and is very impressive.) I call it "intelligent fiction" because the book not only entertains you, and holds your interest throughout, but it talks about intelligent things as it teaches you high-level facts about flying an airplane. This book is soooo well… Read more
Gabby, Gods Little Angel by Sheila Walsh
Gabby, Gods Little Angel by Sheila Walsh
This is a delightful hardcover, 32-page, 2011 book for the young child. It is approximately 9 X 11" and is well illustrated and colorful. The pictures are adorable.

Gabby is a guardian angel in training. She looks to be around age 3 to 5 in Earth years :). Her bright yellow dress matches her bright yellow hair and cute yellow sandals.

Gabby's first assignment is to watch over Sophie, a cute little redhead, about 6 years old. Today, Sophie gets to ride her pony, Glitter, for the first time. Gabby travels with Sophie to make sure everything is A-OK.

This book is the first in a series and sends the message "God loves you so much that He sends His angels… Read more

This is an audio book-on-CD adaptation of Ivan Turgenev's "Mumu," written in 1854. It is read in English, by Max Bollinger. The CD runs for about 1 hour, 11 minutes.

The story begins with a lonely, aging widow who owns a large estate outside of Moscow. The estate is loaded with servants of every kind, for every task. Even a doctor is on staff and living on the estate. Our story revolves mainly around Gerasim, a deaf mute serf (servant), and the widow's need to be satisfied. Through no choice of his own, Gerasim is removed from his life of plowing the fields and is brought to the estate to be a porter, and to primarily tend the courtyard.

Gerasim is a straight and… Read more
