Rebuilding her farm – a must to regain her life Avoiding cowboys and love - a must to keep her focus Seeing Cade Champion again - not part of the plan. IF Savannah Morgan had learned one thing in her short 26 years it was that she would NEVER fall in love with a cowboy again. Not. Ever. A man named Cade Champion had taught her that painful lesson. Having spent six months nursing a broken heart and learning to manage her farm alone, Savannah was thrilled with the idea of a change of scenery when her best friend offered a free trip to California’s wine country. Combining wine tasting and the chance to write an article about a beautiful ranch looked like a perfect trip - especially once Savannah meets the handsome and cultured Alexander Kingsley. With an invitation to stay at the Kingsley Estate Winery for a month and the dashing ‘Zander’ to show her around, Savannah’s heart is sure to be on the mend. Yet, on her first visit to the nearby ranch, fate intervenes in the form of the tall, roguishly sexy Cade Champion. Reeling from all-too-familiar emotions, Savannah immediately plans to ignore him, but when Cade is hired by Zander’s aunt to rebuild the Pedrocelli Ranch show cattle program, Savannah realizes they are going to be neighbors and she struggles to keep her wits. As the late summer turns to fall, Savannah tries to keep things professional with Cade. But, through a series of ridiculous events, she finds herself dating Zander and yet working alongside Cade AND bunking with him at the ranch! In spite of her best intentions, she is effectively dating one man and living with another! Despite her refusal to accept his apologies, Cade makes his intentions to win Savannah’s heart perfectly clear. Yet Zander - with his courtesy, class, culture, and love of wine makes him oh-so-appealing, leaving Savannah to sort out exactly what to do. Ultimately, she has to get back to Indiana to manage her own cow herd, yet she’s left with a tough choice before she goes - which man does she love?
When you're a showman, sometimes it is hard to decide exactly which breed is your favorite! Sarah began showing Brahman cattle, but wants to expand her horizons and add a second breed of cattle to her show string. In this book, read how Sarah and her family travel to Indiana to buy a Shorthorn heifer, named Star. Star is different than any other calf Sarah has ever shown! Learn how Sarah and her family prepare for the great Fort Worth Stock Show with "Star" the Shorthorn heifer!
The book of Hebrews appeared during a critical time in the history of the early church. The destruction of Jerusalem was impending and many of the believers believed the end of the world was near. However, Paul warned the church against entertaining a false hope, for he knew they were misguided with their beliefs. It was a critical time—the apostles were passing away, and soon the church would be left alone. It was in this hour of perplexity that the book of Hebrews appeared with needed light and comfort. The people needed a clear conception of the work Christ was doing for them in the courts above, and this book explained the delay in His return, and restored their wavering faith. The conditions and problems which the church then had to meet are not unlike those facing the church today. While the early church was living at the time of the fulfillment of the first part of Christ’s prophecy—the destruction of the city of Jerusalem and the temple, we are living at the time of the fulfillment of the second part of the prophecy—the coming of the Lord Jesus in the clouds of heaven. As there was misconceptions of Christ’s work in the sanctuary then, so there are those now who likewise err. There is as much need today of a thorough study of the Scriptures as there was then, and more so. The book of Hebrews was a great factor in stabilizing the apostolic church in the crisis hour before the fall of Jerusalem, and it is hoped that a discussion of the mighty themes of the book of Hebrews will be of some help to the church of God today. All need to have their eyes fastened on our great High Priest and the work He is doing in the sanctuary above. And may it be the blessed privilege of many with “boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh.” (Heb. 10:19, 20.) This was the prayer and hope of the author of Hebrews, and this also is the hope of the author of this volume.

Example in this ebook Under the heading of ‘The Varieties of English Speech’ an article of mine appeared in The Quarterly Review of July, 1907. The favourable reception accorded to it at the time prompted me to embark forthwith on a larger work dealing with the same subject. Many books both scientific and popular have been written concerning dialect speech and lore, but nearly all of them are special investigations of some particular dialect. I have taken a bolder flight than this. I have not given a detailed account of any one dialect, but I have surveyed them all, and have gathered words, phrases, names, superstitions, and popular customs, here and there, wherever I found something that appealed to me, and that I felt would appeal to others as well as myself. It was impossible to make any one category exhaustive, for such was the mass of material open to me for selection, I might say I was ‘fairly betwattled and baffounded’. The only thing to be done was to make my selections fairly representative of the whole. My aim in dealing with the linguistic side of my subject has been to show that rules for pronunciation and syntax are not the monopoly of educated people who have been taught to preach as well as practise them. Dialect-speaking people obey sound-laws and grammatical rules even more faithfully than we do, because theirs is a natural and unconscious obedience. Some writers of literary English seem to enjoy flinging jibes at dialect on the assumption that any deviation from the standard speech must be due to ignorance, if not to vulgarity besides. Since I wrote the last chapter of this book, I read in a criticism of Stanley Houghton’s Play Trust the People, this sentence describing the Lancashire ‘father an old mill-hand and the homely mother to match’: ‘They are both drawn, you feel, to the life, and talk with ease, not to say gusto, that curious lingo which seems to an outsider mainly distinguished by its contemptuous neglect of the definite article’, The Times, Friday, Feb. 7, 1913. Now the definite article in north-west Lancashire is t, in the south-west and south t, or th, and in mid and south-east Lancashire th. When this t stands before a consonant, and more especially before a dental such as t, d, it is not by any means easy for the uninitiated to detect the difference in sound between the simple word and the same word preceded by the article, between, for example, table and t table, or dog and t dog. But this is not ‘contemptuous neglect’ on the part of the Lancastrian! It would be nearer the mark to say that the Lancashire dialect is characterized by its retention of a form of the definite article very difficult to pronounce in certain combinations. Further, I have endeavoured to show by means of numerous illustrations, how full the dialects are of words and phrases remarkable not only for their force and clearness, but often also for their subtle beauty, that satisfying beauty of the thing exactly fitted to its purpose. I have also drawn up lists showing the numbers of old words and phrases once common in English literature, still existing in the dialects. Occasionally writers of modern verse seek to restore some of the words of this type to their former position in literary English, thereby causing the reviewer to stumble dreadfully, though he thinketh he standeth. I quote the following from a literary periodical dated May 2, 1913: ‘He debates if he shall make “a nest within a reedy brake”, or, failing this delectable situation, offers himself a quaint alternative, Or I shall see with quiet eye, The dappled paddock loping by. We had always supposed in our ignorance that “paddock” was a term applied to green fields or pastures. How Mr. ... could have seen a paddock “lope” we do not know, and perhaps it would not be kind to ask him to explain.’ To be continue in this ebook

Why is Dave Kehr "one of the best writers on film the country has produced"? Jonathan Rosenbaum, his highly regarded successor as movie critic at the "Chicago Reader" from 1987 through 2008, has a good answer in his Foreword to this volume: "For the range of films and filmmakers treated, the analytical tools employed, and the intellectual confidence and lucidity of his arguments, Kehr's prose really has no parallels." In this "sequel" to "When Movies Mattered" (published in 2011), Kehr deploys those gifts in 50 brilliant pieces, ranging from a thoughtful discussion of the sobering Holocaust documentary "Shoah" to an irresistible celebration of the raucous American comedy "Used Cars." Although that first book featured pieces only from the "Reader," this volume also contains essays from "Chicago" magazine, where Kehr's column on movies appeared from August 1979 through September 1986 (his work in the "Reader" appeared from late 1974 through late summer in 1986). As with "When Movies Mattered," most of this material (and all of it from "Chicago" magazine) has not been reprinted or available online since its original publication. Readers will now have the opportunity to know more of what Rosenbaum calls "a body of work that . . . strikes me as being the most remarkable extended stretch of auteurist [director centered] criticism in American journalism." Although Kehr ended his career as a critic toward the end of 2013 when he stopped writing his weekly DVD column for the "New York Times" to become an adjunct curator in the film department of the Museum of Modern Art, his reputation will be further enhanced by this second collection of his outstanding work--definitely must reading for cinephiles.

When ten-year-old Dinah Kirkham saw her father leave their Manchester home in the middle of the night, she basked when he would be back. "Soon," he replied. But he never came back. On that night in 1829, John Kirkham laid the foundation of his daughter's certainty that the only person Dinah could ever really trust was herself. From that day forward, Dinah worked to support her family, remaining devoted to their welfare even in the face of despair and grinding poverty. Then one day she heard a new message, a new purpose ignited in her heart, and new life opened up before her.
