Did you ever hear the joke about the doctor, accountant, and lawyer going in a bar to discuss their estate plans? The reason you ve never heard the joke is because people don t discuss their wills, trusts and legacies. Until now. Becoming One of the Grateful Dead: Where there s a will, there s a way shares a baker s dozen of stories about how people give away their dough. Think Chicken Soup for the Fate of One s Soul, children, money, possessions and hopes for the future. This book is for people who believe that the state they live in will not make better choices about what happens to their worldly good and children than they will. After every story, there is a section for fundraisers and a section for donors. Why fundraisers? Two reasons: A planned gift is approximately two hundred times an annual gift and according to Giving USA, 5% of all donations are from corporations, 9% from planned gifts. Bottom line: Dead people give more than corporations, yet who do nonprofits approach? The most over-fished pond: corporations Weisman believes that whether you are uber rich or drive for Uber, you can make a difference in this life and the next. Hence the lessons learned section for donors. The people range from the great granddaughter of a slave who works as a cleaning lady to a multi-millionaire oil man. Some of the stories are Oscar Wilde-witty, some are poignant, and some are laugh out loud funny. Almost everyone who has read this book has made changes to their estate plan. It is a fresh look at what you can do now to leave a legacy that makes you proud.
Let’s face it: no one ever knows what sort of present to get their dad, whether it’s his birthday, Chanukah, Christmas, Father’s Day, or even just a little nudge to remind him you care. And you’ll probably just get him a book anyway. So what to do?
Well the one solution to this perennial problem is here. This Is the Book You Give Your Dad is the fitting purchase for Dad, no matter the occasion. This paper-over-board little illustrated gift book is brimming with wit and wisdom—just like dad!—including how to give a toast for any occasion and a quick history of the polo shirt and the periodic table of beer and even ideal lawn mowing patterns. There’s even a customizable dedication page where you can add a personal touch. While the advice, tips, and how-to’s in the book range from practical to humorous the information is sure to please Dad’s aesthetic taste.
Before the inspired nonsense of Monty Python, David Letterman and the Far Side, there were Droodles. With a few squiggles in a simple square, these clever drawings created absurd scenes like “Ship arriving too late to save a drowning witch” (used by Frank Zappa as an album cover), “Octopus signaling for a left turn” and “Clam with buck teeth.” And they were all the creation of one brilliant and unpredictable man: Roger Price.
At the height of their popularity in the mid-1950s, fans enjoyed the Droodles TV show, a Droodles daily newspaper column, Droodles magazine features, Droodles cocktail napkins, even Droodles in ads for Lucky Strike cigarettes. Like hula hoops, drive-in movies and UFOs, Droodles were one of the biggest fads of the 1950s.
Now Droodles make their triumphant return to delight a new generation that can use some laughs. The Ultimate Droodles Compendium includes every one of Roger Price’s 352 most famous Droodles in delightful new full-quality reproductions, with Price’s inspired text and quirky footnotes. There’s more: a Roger Price/Droodles reminiscence by beloved media critic Leonard Maltin, a full history of Roger Price and Droodles by Emmy-winning writer Fritz Holznagel, and comments from comedy legend Carl Reiner, Boing Boing’s Mark Frauenfelder and Carla Sinclair, and others.
Our culture makes it so that even the most organized and efficient among us feels the pressure of the ticking clock and the possibility and regret of missing out. Modern life has evolved in a way that sets us up for stress, pressure, and overload. New norms and attitudes tap into deeply-wired psychological impulses that make it harder than ever to take control of your time. Many of us also have innate personality traits that make the struggle even worse.
No wonder time can become a tyrant that leaves us chronically stressed and discontented. Unlock an approach to life that bestselling author Valorie Burton calls “living timelessly.” You will come to understand
1) the gradual changes that have led us to a place where having too much to do and too little time to do it is the norm,
2) the vision for what it could look like if you were free from the stress of time and how to blast through the obstacles to those possibilities, and
3) the practical steps to choosing the meaningful over the urgent so that your life is unhurried yet purposeful and reflects the values and impact that are unique to you.
The world Annette Hines knew exploded when her infant daughter Elizabeth was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease–a degenerative, life-limiting illness. Annette’s joy quickly turned to apprehension and she knew nothing would ever be the same again.
Butterflies and Second Chances is the inspiring true story of a mother’s special needs journey, and her struggle to secure the best possible life for her child in the face of bureaucratic resistance and marital crisis. It is a story of sacrifice, dedication, and the life-altering adjustments a special needs parent has to make when confronted with the unthinkable. But most of all, it’s about love and an extraordinary mother-daughter relationship that flourished without words in the darkest shadows of adversity.

Famed pigeon G.I. Joe, who saved an Italian village and British troops by flying 20 miles in 20 minutes to carry a message to Allied forces;
Chips, a German Shepherd trained as a sentry who attacked an Italian machine gun team, sustaining powder burns and saving his handler’s life;
Bing, a paradog who jumped out of a plane on D-Day, landed in a tree, and once on the ground helped his handlers locate the enemy.A heartwarming and sometimes even hilarious history of bonafide heroes of feather and fur,War Animals is a World War II story you’ve never read before.

The Efilu archeologist, Vit Na, is a misfit among her crew. En route to Fitu, their planet of origin, the Efilu research vessel, ReQam’s important jobs have been assigned to specialists, scientists and soldiers. Were it not for her intimate relationship with High Commander Tur, her Synesprit, she would not have been on this expedition at all. The ship’s complement arrives to a world they never expected, a world no longer their own.
When the invincible ReQam is crippled by the new inhabitants, Tur’s crew is stranded thousands of light years from home. As far as anyone knew, all Fitu’s abandon, indigenous life forms perished 65 million years ago along with The Keepers, followers of the ancient mystic, Dragon. Due to her petite size, for she is nearly as small as the biped mammals they contend with, Vit Na is conscripted as in infiltrator, and deployed among the hostile mammals who have evolved to resemble the Efilu.
It soon becomes clear that the vital resource for which Tur’s seeks was intentionally tainted to draw the Efilu back of this strange world. Vit Na finds herself uniquely prepared to serve as desperately needed advocate to the crafty mammals who filled that vacant, Efilu niche and are now in jeopardy. Who would have guessed that a daughter of noble house Kemit would be destined to defend vermin, long believed extinct after the Efilu Exodus from a world now called Earth?
