It's much more than just waxing talk. Each chapter represents a different hat worn by Caren on any given day as a hair removal specialist. The Bikini Waxer -- The Love Doctor -- The Bearded Lady -- The Belle of the Balls, no subject is off limits. From topics that start on the table, Caren gives a personal touch of humor and humility from her own life experiences. She is blunt and no nonsense and she's not afraid to express herself. A trait which keeps her clients coming back time and time again. Not only funny but sincere and uplifting, this book will leave any female reader with a sense of womanly pride and dynamism."As a woman who knows women, I have found that no issue is too big or too small to discuss. We are passionate conversationalists regardless of the subject matter. Whatever the issue may be from finding a new wrinkle or a gray hair to buying a new outfit, dating a jerk, getting a divorce or not knowing what color to paint the damn powder room, it's all important to us - at least for the time it's on the table. Some women look to me for answers. I can only tell them what I would do in certain situations but it's important to tread lightly with some subjects. After all, despite what some may think, I don't have all the answers. Who on this planet does?" ~ Caren A. SteinStrong language and graphic content. Proceed with caution. Not for the faint hearted. 2012-09-18 204 584792

Trout Fishing For Bodies (Book 2) (Bob Roosevelt Mystery Series Book 2) Trout Fishing For Bodies (Book 2) (Bob Roosevelt Mystery Series Book 2) 4.8 stars / 8 reviews BOOK 2TROUT FISHING FOR BODIESpoor little trout fish – bring on the butter and skillet, but please, developers, leave the river alone.“Roosevelt, please,” my Guardian Angel pleaded, putting his hands together like he was praying. “Let me warn you one more time. I don’t feel good about this. I have no doubt trout fishing is going to cause you nothing but grief.”For a brief moment I hesitated, my Guardian Angel pleading was completely out of character, but warning or no warning I am going trout fishing.My Guardian Angel followed behind me shaking his head and muttering. The only words I could pick out were ‘stupid’ and ‘brain dead’.At the head of the trail that runs beside the stream I stopped. Beside the trail were four freshly cut pine boughs stacked on top of each other – each about three feet long. Seeing them puzzled me and for an instant made me feel paranoid.“It is really getting bad when tree branches start bothering you,” my Guardian Angel said. “You old hippies didn’t inhale pine needles did you?”I have had paranoid attacks in my life, but this one is ridiculous.I came around a small bend in the river and there was a pool over ten feet wide and twenty feet long. The water was so deep I couldn’t see the bottom of the stream. A thick stand of red alders grew on the far side of the pool. There was no way there wasn’t a trout waiting anxiously for my wooly worm in the deep swirling water. A skittish water spider darted away from me as I cast my wooly worm. My Guardian Angel leaned back against a tree with a worried look on his face – either that or he had an attack of gas.Cast after cast invaded the pool with no trout. I decided to add weight to my line to sink the wooly worm deeper into the water. I attached two small lead split shot to the leader and plunked the wooly worm back into the water. It hadn’t drifted more than two feet when suddenly my line stopped. I pulled back with enough force I could have set the hook in a shark’s jaw. The rod bowed fiercely, but there was no thrashing on the end of the line, disappointedly, only the steady pull of a snag. I don’t think fried snag would taste good unless I was a vegetarian and into soggy tree bark. Although, in some places, soggy tree bark might cost $18.95 for a lunch special – especially if the soggy tree bark was soaked in high mountain, sparkling, stream water, and served by a girl who didn’t shave her legs or under her armpits.“Cut the line and let’s get out of here,” my Guardian Angel yelled and took several quick steps back toward camp.For some reason, the cheap fly that had been made in India was important to me, and instead of breaking the line, I put my hand around the snag and pulled with all my might. If I could get the snag up and out of the water, I could see what I would have to do to get my fly. The first thing I saw coming out of the gloom of the water sent shivers down my spine. It was not a tree limb, but a hand, a woman’s hand, with long slim fingers, painted red nails, a diamond ring, and a gold and diamond tennis bracelet. The naked body bobbed inches below the surface as I held onto the arm, my wooly worm was embedded in the crook of her left elbow. The face, opened eyed, gazed vacantly at me in bewilderment, as the long blond hair curled around her head like golden seaweed. I know the lady did not drown. There was a small hole in her temple – the type caused by a bullet.“Oh Roosevelt,” my Guardian Angel moaned, burying his face in his hands. “I tried to warn you. But no, will you ever listen to me, what am I, just another pretty face?” 2012-01-03 201 97907
The Land-Grant The Land-Grant 4.6 stars / 8 reviews B. J. Edwards' controversial and scathing satire of higher education, The Land-Grant, recounts the comical adventures of Dr. Hulden Harrison, a mildly neurotic and helplessly cynical professor of electrical engineering at a large, public, state university, as he battles the institutional bureaucracy, the Athletic Department, unscrupulous colleagues, and, ultimately, himself. His busy academic life suits him well, until he stumbles into the low-level administrative position of Associate Department Head, initiating a rapidly accelerating downward spiral of cynicism as he becomes embroiled in one mind-numbing task after another. Ultimately, he winds up chairing a committee charged with the construction of a new science and engineering building, which ultimately results in his stumbling onto a mystery involving an alleged misappropriation funds, pointing in the direction of the upper echelons of university administration. The Land-Grant is a crash-course in university life, as seen through the eyes of an idealistic dreamer turned chronic cynic by ten years of university hypocrisy. If you have ever wanted to know what really goes on behind the noble facade at a major, land-grant university, this is the book to read. It will leave you laughing... and crying. 2011-06-24 418 686510
Locked In Locked In 4.8 stars / 6 reviews Homeless after a messy break-up, Bobby Williams takes a second job as caretaker to an estate but his boss has some strange stipulations- a ten o’clock curfew, intensive surveillance, and most importantly: ignore strange sounds coming from the cellar. Living in a mansion has its perks, but the novelty wears off when his role as maid, landscaper, and repairman overrun his personal life. He works harder still to keep the suicidal fish alive, and his friends have taken to calling him “bitch boy.” To keep Bobby from quitting his boss lightens his workload, and things are going well until a bad accident lands him in a walking cast. Early one morning he hears crying from within the off- limits room and suspects the mansion may be haunted. He tries to uncover the past, but soon realizes it's best not to ask too many questions. Bobby looks forward to his last day as caretaker and taking his life off pause when his boss calls—luring him to the forbidden room to retrieve keys to a convertible. In his excitement he drops the security code but he enters without problem. His lucky day turns to nightmare when he finds the keys destroyed, the door locks behind him, and he cannot remember the code to his freedom. After that first night Bobby realizes he is not alone. Who keeps adding new drawings to the sketchbook, and who has been trying to help him escape? Is he trapped with some unseen phantom? Will he make it out alive? 2013-09-05 260 151288

Creative Minecraft Furniture Ideas Plus Minecraft Tips, Tricks and Hints Creative Minecraft Furniture Ideas Plus Minecraft Tips, Tricks and Hints 4.0 stars / 2 reviews INTRODUCTION:Over the years, people have invented ways of keeping themselves busy-away from the usual activities aimed generating income to earn a living. For kids, something has to be available to keep them away from mischief. Well, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy as they say. That is why humans always seek some time off work to relax their minds and put aside their usual day to day business. It is in this spirit that many games have been invented, not only for kids who need a little pleasure away from school, but for adults as well.One of the games that has been coined is the Minecraft. Originally created by a Swedish programmer known as Markus Notch Person, this game was later developed by Mojang who also published it. The first release of the PC was on May the 17th of 2009, which came in an alpha development version. The full release was published on November 18th 2011, after a series of gradual updates. The Android version was released earlier on in October 7th, while the iOS version came in November 17th. The game was released on May 9th 2012 on Xbox 360 as an Xbox Live Arcade game that was co-developed by 4J studios. Well, all these versions get up-dated periodically.The game has received five awards from the 2011 Game Development Conference and awarded the Innovation Award. It also got the Best Downloadable Game Award and the Best Debut Game Award from Game Development Choice Awards. Other achievements include hen considering a game for both the kids and adults, Minecraft may just be one among the choices. After having the information about it, it will be easier to make informed decision.MinecraftOkay, so you’ve heard a little bit about it, maybe a lot, but what is it? Minecraft is a game that looks like it’s straight out of the 90’s, with chunky 16 bit graphics and the music to go along with it. The majority of this simple game is sandbox, first person survival, but it has other elements to it as well (these will be explained later). It has been very successful, not just for an indie game, but as a major title too, with total revenue estimated at around $240 million in 2012, and who knows what it has made since then! Since 2011, when the full Minecraft version was released, all types of gamers have flocked to get their hands on it with its compatibility with all generations. It has been made to have minimal violence and when that time does come it has very manageable graphics for all gamers. The mechanics are very easy pick up as the main actions players will be partaking in are simply picking up and putting down cubes. This can sound rudimentary to the nave, but in this case, your imagination is really the limit. There are hundreds of different types of blocks to create your dream structures with and depending on which mode you play; they can all available to you at the click, press or touch of a button. Minecraft, due to its popularity, now sells a myriad of merch to go along with the game. There are t-shirts, mugs, posters (one of which I have), masks and most recently there has been a Minecraft Lego released! 2014-03-14 60

The Movie Flight and Accountability The Movie Flight and Accountability 0 stars / 0 reviews In Robert Zemeckis latest movie with Denzel Washington as Captain Whip Whitaker we get to see how easy it is to take flight from oneself and one’s trouble, (McCormick), addictions, and lack of confidence or courage and still be able to pull of some death defying acts of bravery. After watching the movie airplane pilots may be wondering what kind of tricks it would take to do such a thing; that is, it possible to roll such a large airplane. (Moody) We intend to look at some of the scenes to find out how Paramount pulled off this turbulent ride for its viewers. Furthermore, one can always ask, just how the editor looked at all that information going on in Capt. Whitaker's brain when it all happened and cut to the different shots of the airplane, cockpit and all the activity going on in the cabin. (Dimond) It takes a master editor to pull all this information and make a meaningful sequence. 2013-12-26 14

Bob Shelley's Original Great Canadian Joke Book Bob Shelley's Original Great Canadian Joke Book 0 stars / 0 reviews INTRODUCTION There’s Something Funny Going On Here! When these jokes were first published as The Great Canadian Joke Book in 1975, it was the first collection of the funniest jokes, quips, gags, and anecdotes about Canada and Canadians ever published and it became a best seller. It is guaranteed to produce smiles, grins, chuckles, and belly laughs. This is the humour Canadians have been trading with each other since the country was first settled. In this anthology, you’ll find jokes and humorous stories about some of Canada’s most prominent citizens ...Prime Ministers, hockey greats, show business personalities . . . and some less prominent, but no less important Canadians, like you and your neighbours and friends. There’s something to tickle your funny bone whether you’re reading about Liberals, farmers, fishermen, strikes, Yankees, Halifax, bilingualism, the Klondike, Confederation, or the Mounties. Whoever it is, whatever it is, wherever it is, if it’s Canadian and it’s worth a laugh, you’ll find it in this book. Among the expressions of encouragement I received as I set out to compile Canadian humour was a suggestion that, Canada didn’t have a sense of humor and that when I gathered all the jokes together, I should submit it as a short paragraph or two in the local newspaper. No sense of humour? Any country that can produce the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, and comedy superstars Jim Carrey, Leslie Nielson (“Naked Gun”), Lorne Michaels (creator/Producer of “Saturday Night Live), “Red Green” (aka Steve Smith), Martin Short, Dan Akroyd, Shaun Majumder, John Candy, Phil Hartman, Joe Flaherty, Dave Foley, Mike MacDonald, Norm Macdonald, Howie Mandel, Rick Mercer, Rick Moranis, Mike Myers, Leslie Nielsen, Catherine O'Hara, Russell Peters, Michael J. Fox, Andr-Philippe Gagnon, Luba Goy, Rick Green, Ron James,Caroline Rhea,Seth Rogen, Mort Sahl, Sandra Shamas, William Shatner, David Steinberg, Sugar Sammy, Dave Thomas, Scott Thompson (“ The Kids in the Hall”), Mary Walsh, Harland Williams, Will Arnett, Samantha Bee, Bowser and Blue, Dave Broadfoot, Brent Butt (TV’s hilarious “Corner Gas”), Johnny Wayne and Frank Schuster (who appeared on Ed Sullivan’s Variety Show more times than any other artists), Tommy Chong, John Wing, Jr. Stephen Leacock, Mordecai Richler, Rich Little, Beatrice Lillie, Silent Comedy star Ben Blue, Director Mack Sennett (“The Keystone Kops”) (whew!) can hardly be considered devoid of a sense of humour! Here are the jokes that have remained popular throughout Canada over the years, told by Canadian about Canadians. Because if there is one thing about Canadians that everyone can really appreciate is their ability to laugh at themselves Enjoy! 2013-09-17 145 1777823

The Final Testament: The Second Coming of Christ The Final Testament: The Second Coming of Christ 0 stars / 0 reviews Two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ came and changed the world. In a time when hatred and revenge ruled, Jesus shook things up by preaching a message of love and forgiveness. What if Jesus were to return to our world today? What would he have to say about life in the twenty-first century? Would he be proud of the legacy his first disciples left behind with all the churches bearing his name?In The Final Testament: The Second Coming of Christ, author J.M. Lord takes an imaginative and provocative look at how Jesus would act if he were to return to our world today. Through this easy to read and often humorous story, readers follow Jesus' journey through life in the twenty-first century from his initial struggles in gaining credibility and acceptance to his battles with some of the less honorable forces ruling the world."The Final Testament is the ultimate tribute to the legacy of Jesus Christ. Jesus is one of those people who sparked controversy in his time just as much as or perhaps even more than other historical figures. J.M. Lord stays true to that through his irreverent portrayal of Jesus as a young rebellious rascal at heart." - E.W."The Final Testament is an excellent resource for readers who have an interest or adeptness in exploring Jesus and society in our world today." - R.R."Why did Jesus cross the road? To sit down on a bench to read The Final Testament! It was so captivating that I had to sit down and read it all in one sitting. - B.H. 2013-11-24 94 346827

Kanarenvögel (German Edition) Kanarenvögel (German Edition) 0 stars / 0 reviews Kanarenvgel – kurze Episoden ber ausgeflippte und ziemlich schrullige, aber sympathische Auswanderertypen. Die „Bodega verde“ ist ein beliebter Treffpunkt fr all jene Figuren die ein glckliches Schicksal an den Rand Europas und auf die Sdwestseite dieser Insel verschlagen hat. Nicht das es Asoziale wren, die hier ihre neue Bleibe gefunden haben. Beileibe nicht. Wenigstens die meisten von ihnen nicht. Aber, und das kann ich mit Fug und Recht sagen, sie wren alle nicht mehr in der Lage auf Dauer auf dem Zivilisation gestressten Festland zu leben. Und die meisten dieser Kanarenvgel wollen das auch gar nicht. Sie sind alle ein bisschen gaga. Es sind eben Randfiguren am Rande Europas. Dann sind da selbstverstndlich noch die Einheimischen. Auch sie kommen gern in die Bodega. Und natrlich Touristen. Doch jener Zeitgenosse, einer dieser insularen Kanarenvgel, der schon seit mehr als fnfundzwanzig Jahren an diesem Ort den lieben Gott einen guten Mann sein lsst, watschelt ebenfalls ein oder zwei mal in der Woche zur „Bodega verde“. 2012-10-14 58 1431936
