For anyone who wants to make fewer (not less) grammar mistakes, a lively, effective, and witty guide to all the ins and outs of the English language, reminiscent of the New York Times bestseller Eats, Shoots & Leaves. Our language is changing, literary levels are declining, and our grasp of grammar is at a crisis point. From commas to colons, apostrophes to adverbs, there are countless ways we can make mistakes when writing or speaking. But do not despair! Great Britain’s most popular grammar guru has created the ultimate modern manual for English speakers on both sides of the Atlantic. In this brilliantly funny and accessible guide to proper punctuation and so much more, Gyles Brandreth explores the linguistic horrors of our times, tells us what we’ve been doing wrong and shows us how, in the future, we can get it right every time. Covering everything from dangling participles to transitive verbs, from age-old conundrums like “lay” vs. “lie,” to the confounding influences of social media on our everyday language, Have You Eaten Grandma? is an endlessly useful and entertaining resource for all.

Grandma’s Guide to Healthy Eating on a Budget - Healthy Old-Time and Traditional Recipes From All Over The World Table of Contents Introduction Old-Style Eating Versus New Style Eating Tips For Healthy Food Serving Harvest Stew Fish With Tomato Spinach salad Traditional Salad Recipe Beef in Ginger Spiced Chicken Wings Mixed Vegetables Garlic Prawns Duck in Orange Sauce Beef Casserole Fried Fish Tandoori Chicken Okra in Tomato Sauce Kofta Curry Sukiyaki Managing Your Tomato Harvest Traditional Onion Bread Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction We are at the beginning of a new era in food. If grandma had the financial resources, she made sure that her table was stocked with lots and lots of food, starting with soup, meat, vegetables, fruit and sweetmeats. A more frugal grandma would look at the limited ingredients in her garden, and in her kitchen and use her creativity to make a delicious meal as often as she could to feed her hungry brood. Cooking was an art, in olden days, especially when traditional cooks knew all about the effect of different foods on your body and system. In Korea and in many parts of the East, including China, the Royal family had special cooks who were half doctors themselves. They knew all about the internal system of each and every member of the royal family, and used special ingredients and cooking methods in order to keep their systems working properly and in a healthy manner. That is when the art of cooking was at its zenith; cooking to keep healthy and eating nutritious food.
Grandma took a trip back to her childhood home in 1954. She took copious notes and photos on her travels, so she could revisit her adventure time and time again. Years later, I found the journal and felt as if I were traveling alongside her.

The time has come when your darkest hour meets with the light of day. You no longer have to live behind the mask of destiny killers, the pain, the abuse, or the brokenness of your past. Before you were formed in your mothers womb, God knew you; before you were born, God sanctified you and set you apart (Jer. 1:5). You were born to be a great woman in the kingdom of God. The assignment of destiny killers is to make you believe success is not a part of Gods plan. In order to live a true, fulfilled life in Christ, you must deal with your inner hurt, shame, and pain of your past. You have been stuck in life, bound by your past; God says its time to be free. For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope (Jer. 29:11). Dont allow what you see in a moment to affect your promise for tomorrow. Remember, its just a moment in time. Dont allow the enemy of your soul to rob you of your inheritance and blessings in God; your darkest hour is your greatest ministry. Dont allow the pain of your past to keep you from having healthy relationships with other women. Nothing can stop the plan of God once your darkest moment meets with destiny.

If you have recently spent any amount of time with a group of children, you are aware of the behavior crisis we are experiencing in America?s youth. Disrespect, manipulation, rudeness, defiance, and entitlement are characteristics all too common in today?s children. I believe it is time for parents to have a basic, tried-and-true, step-by-step behavior plan?not more research, parental manipulation, and quick-fix approaches. While I do not know how to fix this very serious behavior crisis, I do have some ideas regarding the prevention of the behaviors using a parent-controlled approach?starting the day Mom gave birth! I am not a professional writer, but I am a mother, grandmother, and teacher, and I think an advice book written from this perspective would be unique and appreciated. This is a quick read with a clear, positive message. There are no generalizations or theories?just a simple, parent-controlled plan that is gentle and positive. The purpose of this book is to help parents raise happy, polite, and well-adjusted children. In Grandma?s Two Cents, I focus on three basic training issues?sleeping, eating, and potty training?to teach a fun, healthy approach that will establish lifelong good habits. This basic training is a framework to build future positive healthy behaviors in all areas of a child?s life.
