For too many of us the weekend has become just another overcrowded couple of days dominated by duties, traffic jams, hassle and expense as we dash from supermarket to superstore catching up with the week's chores. But it doesn't have to be this way. Elspeth Thompson's original and inspiring book shows us how we can reclaim the weekend by re-charging our batteries and relationships through enjoying the simple pleasures in life. From watching the sunset and the stars, making marmalade and writing proper letters to borrowing a dog, going to dance classes and using the internet creatively, she reminds us of the fun and satisfaction to be had from creative, social and relaxing pursuits. The Wonderful Weekend Book is packed with ideas that will help restore the balance in our lives, reconnect us to the seasons, and - quite literally - not cost the earth.

More than half a million parents confront the empty nest for the first time each year. It is one of the most challenging phases of parenting, often creating feelings of loss, lack of purpose and crisis of identity which can lead to depression. Yet it receives little recognition. And contrary to popular opinion it doesn't only affect women who've put their careers on hold: working mothers and fathers suffer too. Equally, it can be a period of liberation and discovery of new challenges, when marriages long overstressed by childcare can be rejuvenated. The Empty Nest includes case studies documenting a wide range of experiences of parents living through an empty nest; expert comment and advice; plenty of practical ideas, inspiration and tips. This encouraging, empowering books helps you to focus on the positive as well as how to handle the changing relationship with your children to ensure a fulfilling and good relationship going forward, an area of parenting often ignored.

If Abner Musser hadn’t run out of sons, his neighbors say, The Buck would have been as big as Pittsburgh in another 10 years. This area in Southern Lancaster County reminds me more and more of the region just east of Lancaster. I suppose the words that condense this thought could be: Bird-In-Hand gained, Paradise lost. Quote from Robert Risk: “Death does not end all-it begins everything.” If Ma Garner heard a ruckus outside her house at night she raised her bedroom window, shot once, then opened fire with an arsenal of words that may have stung worse than the shotgun pellets. The resourceful human mind has developed to strive for the betterment of mankind, yet the human spirit has evidently never abandoned the cave. At Woodstock there were numerous drug busts, at our gathering all drugs were handed out before the meal.
