One of the most painfully riveting books of our time. A first hand account of the greatest mass murder in history as told by the active and passive participants in genocide. What is different about this book is that it contains carefully compiled letters, journal entries and voluminous correspondence that prove beyond doubt that more members of the German population than ever before admitted to, knew about the Holocaust while it was happening.

Lots of Laughter: Praise for the Good Old Days is a reflection of the Antigua culture and customs that enveloped Valerie Knowles Combie as she grew up in the small village of Cedar Grove. From a young age Valerie and her friends learned to treat all adults with the same respect they showed their own parents, because it wasn't just your parents who raised you, it was the village. The culture of loving your neighbor as if they were your own family, working hard, and being involved in your church is what life was all about for the people Valerie knew growing up as a child, and it is what defines her as an individual today. Encompassing everything from the process of building houses to old family recipes, Valerie delves into her memory bank to give the reader a vivid picture of the day-to-day life and culture of the Antigua she once knew. Lots of Laughter proves to be insightful and heartwarming for anyone who has ever had a longing for the good old days.

It was the Great Depression-a difficult time for most Americans and seemingly even more so for a poor Methodist preacher, his wife, and their seven children. But for Johnny it was a time of discovery and childhood adventure far removed from the woes of the world. His family had very little, So the depression meant little to them. What they lacked monetarily was surpassed by their solidarity, hard work, and creativity. In the Proving Ground: Memories of the Good Old Days, Dr. John Lawrence recounts his idyllic childhood memories of growing up in rural Alabama and Florida. These charming stories show the world from an innocent and untarnished perspective, a bygone era where children were free to roam and explore the countryside, where their imagination was the best form of entertainment, and where the great outdoors-God's entire world, As they knew it-was both a playpen and a proving ground. Journey back in time with Dr. John Lawrence, and discover countless reasons why these years are fondly remembered as 'the good old days.'

In 1999, I flew from Fort Lauderdale, FL, to Japan for $28.39 round-trip. Previously, a round-trip from Fort Lauderdale to Turkey cost me $17 and change. On the Turkish flight, a computer glitch wiped out my documentation shortly after I landed in Frankfurt, Germany. To compensate, Delta Air Lines upgraded me to BusinessElite class, featuring free champagne and choice of filet mignon or salmon steak served on a cozy table set with sparkling crystal and the finest silver and china. Most of my caviar lifestyle on a tuna budget has been based on United States Social Security and Bahamas National Insurance payments, having worked many years in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. What’s the catch? Basically, it was playing the discount-fare and frequent-flier game to the Nth degree, N as in nothing, in many cases. My best free junkets in senior-friendly skies came via Delta Air Lines frequent flier mileage. My Delta SkyMiles were tallied by such senior-citizen bargains as a Fort Lauderdale- Hawai’i round-trip ticket for as little as $440. That alone added some 10,000 FF miles to my account. Signing for a Delta SkyMiles credit card netted 10,000 miles; a switch to MCI telephone service scored another 5,000 or so. An MCI WorldCom/SkyMiles long-distance card is good for five 10 HAROLD FLAGG miles per dollar spent. There is at least one case where a “motormouth” literally talked his way into a free trip! Investors can rack up major mileage via Delta

Back in the Good Old Days life revolved around the kitchen table- not the television. There we brought the fresh vegetables from the garden for cleaning and canning. There we folded hands and gave thanks for the good things the Lord had provided. There we shared bread and time with one another. This look back into the kitchen of yesteryear is sure to warm you just like the old wood cook stove.

Jerry App’s farm stories open the barn door to understanding life in the country. “Even with the all the hard work, we had more time (perhaps we took more time) to enjoy what was all around us: nights filled with starlight, days with clear blue skies and puffy clouds. Wonderful smells everywhere—fresh mown hay, wildflowers, and apple blossoms. Interesting sounds—the rumble of distant thunder, an owl calling in the woods, a flock of Canada geese winging over in the fall.” In this paperback edition of a beloved Jerry Apps classic, the rural historian tells stories from his childhood days on a small central Wisconsin dairy farm in the 1930s and 1950s. From a January morning memory of pancakes piled high after chores, to a June day spent learning to ride a pony named Ginger, Jerry moves through the turn of the seasons and teaches gentle lessons about life on the farm. With recipes associated with each month and a new introduction exclusive to this 2nd edition, Living a Country Year celebrates the rhythms of rural life with warmth and humor.
