Frédérique ferma les yeux. Elle trouvait que le ton de Jules ressemblait davantage à du mépris qu'à de la pitié. Une fois de plus, le choix avait été fait de laisser mourir certains pour en privilégier d'autres. N'était-ce pas ce que Jules avait reproché au Président lors de leur fuite de l'Heptapole? Ça ne les dérangeait plus, désormais? Jules profita du silence de Frédérique pour lui enlever définitivement tout espoir de réintégrer l'Unicapitale déguisée en garçon.

Stories that will break your funny bone and keep you in stitches...and you won't have to go to the ER! Humor/satire about the dumb things that guys will sometimes do...you know, those decisions that usually start with a trip to the liquor store and end with a trip to the ER.
Or to the police station. And almost always to the doghouse.
These are "The fish was THIS BIG" stories that are sorta-kinda mostly true. You know those videos where men do things like balance a ladder on a stair railing, use a handcart in place of a spare tire, or light firecrackers and launch them at each others' crotches? Well, this is a compilation of stories such as those where some man somewhere has a moment of sheer stupidity and asks his friends to hold his beer while he tries to kill himself. So if you like to hear those "chill 'round the fire pit, guzzlin' six packs and spittin' tobacco at the flames" kind of stories, this book is for you. DISCLAIMER--Now, because we're dealing with good ol' boys who are common sense challenged and grew up watching Evel Knievel performing jaw-dropping gravity-defying stunts, I have to make the standard cover-our-butts-so-we-don't-get-sued statement: MEN--If you really think you should try some of the stunts in this book, you probably ought to consider finding a sensible woman to marry. Seriously. Or call yo mama before you hand over that beer, dude. WOMEN--If you are a sensible gal who is considering getting into a relationship with a man who has ever said, "Here, hold my beer" just before he tried any similar stunts to those in this book, you may want to call your mama and get some good advice. Or maybe just go out with the girls for a glass or three of wine and meet someone inclined to life and limb endangerment. Otherwise, count on knowing 911 operators on a first-name basis and spending a lifetime sipping burned coffee out of cardboard cups, while squirming on hard plastic chairs next to sneezing snot-nosed kids and watching ridiculous talk shows in the ER waiting room. You. Have. Been. Warned.
Nelly och Valle är på cykelsemester. Deras lärare från Monsterakademin, LENA-SLEVA, har tipsat dem om att slå läger nära en nedlagd skola. Lägerplatsen ser idyllisk ut, men på natten tränger höga skrik ut från den gamla skolan. Uppskrämda smyger de dit och möts av en märklig syn: ett gammalt spöke försöker rytande få tre sjövilda gastar att lära sig läsa och räkna. Han berättar uppgivet att detta är hans sista uppdrag innan han kan få frid. Nelly och Valle inser att de måste hjälpa honom, och spöket låter dem tacksamt ta över undervisningen. De börjar med att låta gastarna vara med och bestämma, därefter använder de sina "tre L" ovanligt listigt ...
Every six minutes a handful of parish members (often no more than a half dozen) bully, intimidate, threaten and blackmail successful pastors into resigning their ministries. The wounds they inflict on these pastors and their families remain with them for the balance of their lives. Congregational leaders that stand with the pastors are often attacked and left wounded from the same trauma. This is a book of healing. It is written for senior pastors, music ministers, lay professionals and lay leaders that are suffering with the wounds of a sheep attack. The author examines the depth of the pain that the antagonists are able to inflict. He brings forth the damaging effects of Chronic Stress, Emotional Memories, Burnout and Post Traumatic Stress Injury. Based on the experiences of over 200 clergy of virtually every branch of Christianity and Jewish Rabbis he describes the methods they have utilized to heal and move forward with their lives. This is the third book in the series on "sheep attacks" by The Reverend Doctor Dennis Maynard.
The others are: "When Sheep Attack" and "Preventing A Sheep Attack."
Focussed on their careers, Sally Lancing, the daughter of a Pakistani immigrant and English mother, and John Sommers, the much-loved son of adoptive parents, are equally committed to a child-free future. Then a surprise pregnancy – and doubts about the paternity – hurls them both into new, but separate, lives. Devastated by the loss of her job, her partner, and her home, Sally and her baby son embark on a journey to Pakistan to meet her father’s distant family. Once there, Sally’s eyes are opened to a world that challenges her deepest beliefs. Meanwhile, John hides his vulnerability behind increasing success as a restaurateur. But the baby has rattled skeletons, and, unable to avoid his past, he too embarks on a journey – to find his birth parents. As their horizons broaden and their views are challenged, the child, Sammy, is an innocent but enduring link. Thicker Than Soup is a story of love, loss and discovery that explores the concepts of morality and independence as Sally and John attempt to build separate futures.
Until, that is, providence stirs life’s mixing bowl once more, and Sammy is again the crucial ingredient. Thicker Than Soup is a moving tale of relationships set against a backdrop of both Thatcher’s Britain and a beautifully evoked Pakistan. Inspired by The Ginger Tree by Oswald Wynd, the novel explores the serious issues of cultural integration and diversity as well as adoption, and also, the devastating shock of HIV.
