Download or read book A Dog in the Manger and Other Christmas Stories written by Jim Simons and published by Rowman & Littlefield. This book was released on 2014-11-20 with total page 181 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An immaculate blanket of snowfall, the blessing of an unexpected gift, the miracle of a Heavenly Child—surprises are ingrained into the very nature of the Christmas tradition. Yet, when the overwhelming spirit of the holiday season collides with the chance conflicts of everyday life, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep the true meaning of Christmas in sight. A Dog in the Manger and Other Christmas Stories is a collection of tales that capture the chaos of the yuletide while also portraying the power of Christmas to shepherd souls of all kinds—young, old, hopeful, lost, content, confused—to confront and redefine faith in the face of spiritual adversity. Sure to inspire reflection and retelling, these stories celebrate the miracles of everyday life, showing that strangers can become angels, foes can become good Samaritans, and neighborhoods can become communities of faith. Even the most chaotic incidents bring people closer to themselves, their families, their communities, and to God during the Christmas season.

Download or read book The Other End of the Leash written by Patricia McConnell, Ph.D. and published by Ballantine Books. This book was released on 2009-02-19 with total page 289 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Learn to communicate with your dog—using their language “Good reading for dog lovers and an immensely useful manual for dog owners.”—The Washington Post An Applied Animal Behaviorist and dog trainer with more than twenty years’ experience, Dr. Patricia McConnell reveals a revolutionary new perspective on our relationship with dogs—sharing insights on how “man’s best friend” might interpret our behavior, as well as essential advice on how to interact with our four-legged friends in ways that bring out the best in them. After all, humans and dogs are two entirely different species, each shaped by its individual evolutionary heritage. Quite simply, humans are primates and dogs are canids (as are wolves, coyotes, and foxes). Since we each speak a different native tongue, a lot gets lost in the translation. This marvelous guide demonstrates how even the slightest changes in our voices and in the ways we stand can help dogs understand what we want. Inside you will discover: • How you can get your dog to come when called by acting less like a primate and more like a dog • Why the advice to “get dominance” over your dog can cause problems • Why “rough and tumble primate play” can lead to trouble—and how to play with your dog in ways that are fun and keep him out of mischief • How dogs and humans share personality types—and why most dogs want to live with benevolent leaders rather than “alpha wanna-bes!” Fascinating, insightful, and compelling, The Other End of the Leash is a book that strives to help you connect with your dog in a completely new way—so as to enrich that most rewarding of relationships.

After 10 years as a reporter/editor, Mitzi served as director of a World Vision-sponsored program in Jefferson County, OH and continued freelance writing. She and her husband, Eric, reside in Steubenville, OH with their two sons, Kyle and Carson, dog Bubba and hamster, Spot Jr. They attend Wintersville United Methodist Church.

  • Publisher : Bloomsbury Publishing
  • Release : 2015-10-22
  • ISBN : 1783194014
  • Pages : 156 pages

Download or read book The Dog in The Manger written by Lope De Vega and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2015-10-22 with total page 156 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Spanish Golden Age celebrated one of the most dynamic, energetic and stylish periods of world drama which exploded onto the stages of Madrid at the turn of the seventeenth century. It was a decisive period in world drama, similar to the periods of great national drama which occurred in seventeenth century London and fifth century Athens. The Spanish Golden Age was big business – professional, commercial theatre with plays touring all over Spain and Europe The Royal Shakespeare Company’s 2004 Spanish Golden Age Season presented plays from this era, the work of some of Spain’s greatest playwrights. Rarely seen in the theatre, and now in translations by leading contemporary writers, the plays in this season dramatised our fascination with the themes of seduction, honour and revenge. In The Dog in the Manger, Diana, Countess of Belfor, a beautiful and headstrong young woman, is beset by aristocratic suitors urging marriage but refuses them all. One-night she discovers her handsome young secretary seducing her favourite lady in waiting and is consumed with jealousy. A heartbreaking love triangle is forged and so begins a tale of forbidden love, envy and passion. The Dog in the Manger is a painful and hilarious comedy for anyone who has ever fallen in love with someone they shouldn’t have.

Download or read book Garde Manger written by Chuck Hughes and published by Harper Collins. This book was released on 2012-05-01 with total page 219 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Chuck Hughes is the star of Chuck’s Day Off, a Food Network Canada and Cooking Channel (U.S.) show featuring the charismatic chef cooking for friends and family on his day off at one of his Montreal restaurants, Garde-Manger. Fabulously energetic, fun and a skilled chef, Chuck definitely has star quality and “splash factor.” His star is on the rise in the U.S.: Chuck’s Week Off and Chuck’s Eat the Street, along with Chuckmas (Chuck’s Christmas special) are all popular shows on the Cooking Channel; he took down Bobby Flay in Iron Chef competition, and he was one of the participants in The Next Iron Chef in 2012. Garde Manger features recipes from his restaurant and his show that are down-to-earth but festive, and never fussy. What’s wonderful about the book is the energy the design brings—it matches Chuck’s own style and approach to both cooking and life. One can only assume this is the first of many cookbooks from Chuck Hughes. The French edition of Garde Manger won a silver medal at Taste Canada (The Food Writing Awards) in 2012.
