Patrick Aldermann, an accountant with a company that makes toilets, is passionate about his roses, which he prunes ruthly, 'deadheading' any blossoms a minute past their prime so as to make space for the younger blooms. Not much of a gardener, Dalziel views Patrick as a strong contender for the title of Most Boring Man in Yorkshire. Pascoe, though, has noticed that senior executives at the toilet company 'gentlemen, you might say, just a minute past their prime' have an unlucky habit of dying. And when they do, it's all but inevitably Patrick who, like a lucky young bloom, is poised to take their place.
Meet just a few of the animals and people who have been a part of SOAR, the Southport/Oak Island Animal Rescue. You'll meet Captain Jack, a dog that was shot and left to die before being rescued by one of our volunteers; Sadie, a dog found in horrible living conditions with a broken, use leg and covered by fire ants; and Saint, an unwanted dog who became a best friend and service dog to a paralyzed young man. You will also read about a tragedy that occurred when pit bulls gained access to our property and cattery. These stories will give you a glimpse of life, and death, inside a small country animal shelter.
Teachers have a challenging and often difficult job. They need inspiration. Christian inspiration! You're God's Gift to Teachers provides biblical encouragement to teachers. Uniquely, this book is targeted directly at teacher issues, with passages organized in 50 topics from A-Z. While the focus is on the bible verse, the author writes a specific context for teachers for each passage. This helps the reader have a greater understanding of the application, and therefore appeals to not only the "strong Christian" but also the newer Christian or even someone simply "interested" in a Christian perspective.
Topics include Caring, Confidence, Empathy, Faith, Generosity, Helping Hand, Integrity, Laughter, Leadership, Perception, Priorities, Service, Teamwork and many more. A recurring theme is that God has given you the gift of being a teacher. While the teacher is finding encouragement through the passages, they are also to "pay it forward" to their students. A passage on Love from Romans 12:9 states "Don't just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good." Author Marder adds "Loving a student really means never giving up on them and constantly expressing hope. Show them you value the difference between right and wrong, something they can hold onto for their whole life." The topic on Positive Thinking from Philippians 4:8 states "And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise." Marder notes, "So now you know - it's not the self help gurus of the 20th century that came up with the power of positive thinking! In fact, Paul speaks to the issue 2000 years ago. In this letter directed to the Christian church in Philippi, it is noteworthy that he is providing this encouragement from jail (on trumped up charges)! The days for teachers are often long and challenging and it would be easy to get down. Keep you mind on the good things in life to keep your spirits up." There are over 170 pages of topics, and teachers have a place to jot notes, thoughts or prayers, that may be prompted by the reading, about or for students or others. This makes this quality hardback book both a workbook and a resource book for now and the future.

Following her wildly popular memoir trilogy, Marlayna now shares ons learned in six months traveling through fourteen countries.
Readers will find hope in this true story that teaches the wisdom of creating and receiving miracles on a journey of self-discovery by saying “Yes.” Marlayna had been a single parent for fifteen years when she felt she had nothing left of herself to give. Drained and empty, she writes, "I'd reached a point in my life where something had to give, and it could no longer be me." In Forty-Something Phoenix, she discovers how passion can arise unexpectedly from the ashes of one life to craft another. This memoir redefines the love story; illustrating how self-acceptance and self-love can be renewed when exploring the disparities, similarities, histories, loves and losses in other cultures. “Reading a Marlayna Glynn Brown memoir is like watching a high speed train picking up speed, as it careens towards a collision with an oncoming train. In this case, the heroine (Marlayna) jumps to safety seconds before the inevitable collision. It's nearly impossible to stop watching. Marlayna's personality is a fascinating mixture of vulnerability, sincerity, optimism, self reflection, sexiness, and humbleness. She is the ultimate underdog. She picks herself up and dusts herself off after another of a series of failed romances and friendships. I would highly recommend reading her prior memoirs. It will assist in putting her latest in the proper perspective.” John L.
