Uncovering the day-­to-­day routines and activities of a family with seven children should be interesting in any age, but when it covers Depression years to World War II, it?­s especially revealing. The narrative throughout is in rhyme, and the author is dealing mostly with first-­hand experiences so she brings the common and not-­so-­common aspects of the Sanders family into bold relief. How to celebrate Christmas when there is virtually no money for gifts; how the father attempts to discourage the chicken-­thief; how to keep food on the table when the bread-­winner has trouble collecting for the household products he has sold door-­to-­door; and the isolation experienced when TB forces the mother to live for a year in a sanitarium out of town. The richness of the details in this narrative demonstrates the storehouse of memories possessed by Ms. Barnes as well as the insights gained from being a first-­hand protagonist in this family?­s struggle. The six children who grew to maturity had . . .

Hi Folks, One day while I was out grazing near a stream in New England I came across a little girl who was trying to express her views about life to her dad. Now don?­t get the wrong idea! I?­m not one of those nosey mooses. However sometimes I must admit I do get a bit curious, besides it all sounded quite interesting. So I did what any wise old moose would do. I poked my antlers out, flicked my ear up and tuned in.   As I was listening, the little girl told her father that this would be the first of several walks they would need to take. She felt fairly confident that he would be able to learn, what she referred to as? The Seven Living Truths.   As she turned to walk away, the little girl had one more thing to say. ?­Now remember dad, Lesson number one = All Are One.?   I don?­t know when they will be coming back, but I will certainly keep my antlers out. Now I really must go see what all the noise is about over at the new raven?­s nest.   See ya along the rocky trails. Love, Aunty . . .

The title of this guide book was thought up by a group of friends who were lamenting the sad fact of the poorly educated male in the romance department.  Even at the sophisticated age of 50+ most men are clueless in how to successfully court and woo a woman.­We discussed all the commonsense things men could do to make themselves more appealing.  On the bottom of the list was sex.  Because sex would not even be on the agenda if the man was boorish in behavior.  However, if he was thoughtful, kind, attentive and unselfish, the direction of the relationship would be a completely different story.­Therefore the goal of this book is to make both men and women happy, and to enjoy sex as the frosting on the cake in a meaningful relationship.
