These days, the entertainment media has transformed rehab into a very chic and routine chapter of everyday life for the career of stars. They have helped to turn rehab into a much bigger industry.

Giving up the alcohol was the easy part of the decision to get sober. The more severe challenge came from dealing with the health care system AFTER I gave up the alcohol.Normally, not having health insurance is the factor that drags people down again and again. You have to be very wealthy to get help with addiction rehabilitation, or it has to be court ordered. Either way, it is an industry and it exists to make money.

My rude awakening was finding out that even with excellent health insurance it does not guarantee getting any form of health care!

In a strange twist of fate, she is chosen, “by God,” to become the mother of his son, the next Madonna in the second coming of Christ.

The Second Virgin Birth is such a book. It explores new ideas and concepts that could affect us all, and would affect us all, if events in the book ever come to pass. This book is a must read, a must discuss, and a must argue over. Prepare yourself to lose old friends and gain new ones.

Description

“I am a survivor of domestic abuse. I am sharing the intimate details of my life to raise awareness of this terrible crime and prove there is life after abuse – and it can be a life of safety, hope and happiness”

–Malaika Cohen

Smaching the chains of domestic abuse

Victims often stay in abusive relationships out of fear,habit or low self-esteem. It’s never easy to get out but the choice is yours.
Make a decision. Reclaim your life – you deserve it and so do your children.

Beginning against the backdrop of oppressive communism in East Germany, SHACKLES charts one woman’s amazing story to walk free from thirty four years of violence. The chains can be smashed and the battle can be won.

” Shackles” is a ‘must read’ book for anyone seeking to understand the devastating and de-humanising consequences of domestic abuse. An incredibly detailed, personal and revealing testament of the daily, weekly and monthly toll of systematic domestic abuse both physical and psychological, with its associated control freakery, and involvement of a whole extended family, it reveals the human toll of a sustained , 34 year long, abuse.
It charts the whole story, and of the struggle to protect her children, and eventually to escape from the hellish relationship and to rebuild their scarred lives.
It is a powerfull chronicle of resilience, of highs and lows, and ultimately of the triumph of good over supreme adversity .
I commend it for its insight and confidence for a better future.

General Practitioner
West Sussex County Councillor
& Chairman of Domestic Abuse Working Party, West Sussex

This witty and fun-loving book is mostly for writers and artisans not yet fully supporting themselves through writing or artistry, although if you are, there’ll be plenty here for you, too. What Walt covers is mainly for prospects, for wannabes—no disrespect intended. You want an audience for your work, you want to be paid, and you want your pay to exceed your expenses. And until then, you want to minimize your taxes on your other income by deducting your losses.
Ben Franklin said, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” You won‘t live forever and you won‘t escape taxation. It‘s as simple as that. However, you might as well have some fun trying to escape death and taxes. Writers and artisans often find a way to exploit death in their creations. I urge you to find a way to exploit the tax laws to your advantage.
It’s crazy. Your granddaughter asks if Sleeping Beauty had a trust to avoid “death taxes”. You mention “like-kind exchange” to your grandson and he knows you’re not talking about the transformation of Clark Kent into Superman. He wants to see the properties. Where are you in all of this?

For over twenty years, Cammy Coleman dreamt of visiting the beautiful island of St. Gabriel. Filled with history and tradition, it’s surrounded by the brilliant northern waters of Lake Brigade. Charming old buildings line its main street, and grand homes, cottages, gardens, and woods complete the picture-perfect landscape. Life has never allowed Cammy to make the trip to St. Gabe, but she’s been content to be a homemaker, mother, and wife to her husband of twenty-five years, tucking away her dreams for someday.

But when the husband she adores suddenly asks for a divorce, not only is she devastated, but the last thing she wants to do is leave the safety and solitude of her home. Her well-meaning friends, however, have something else in mind. Hoping to distract her from her grief, they convince Cammy to go with them on a weeklong retreat to St. Gabriel. Cammy grudgingly agrees, but she soon finds herself immediately drawn to the island and an abandoned lodge in a way that opens up the possibilities of a new life, new loves, and finding her way home.

Warm and inviting, My Way Home is a touching, entertaining, and emotionally-powerful story that speaks to the inner strength within us all.

Libertas

  • ISBN-13: 978-1906836078
  • Product Dimensions: 8.8 x 6 x 0.6 inches
  • Price: $12.99

Description

Set in southern Spain in the First Century BC, Libertas introduces the people who live in the idyllic mountain community of Munda and the ancient Kemeletoi people who thrive in the surrounding countryside.

But the world is ruled by Rome, whose generals have a score to settle – Julius Caesar has force-marched eight crack legions from Italy to subdue the sons of Pompey, and two huge armies will clash in the wide upland valley that stretches before Munda. The final, savage battle of a remorseless struggle for world dominance. A battle that will leave 30,000 dead and a community devastated.

But there’s an unlikely hero who refuses to give in to the despair and horror of war, who believes his family can be rescued from slavery, who refuses to accept that Roman cruelty and greed has changed his beloved Munda for ever.

It’s a story of bravery, love, invention and hope.

“Alistair Forrest’s Libertas is a fast-moving tale of fortitude, survival and eventual retribution told against the background of Rome’s bloody civil war. Forrest vividly recreates the epic battle that gave Caesar the prize he sought so avidly.” – Douglas Jackson, author of Caligula

“Forrest has the gift of the true story teller – the ability to engage his readers’ interest from the very first sentence.” – Sir Patrick Cormack FSA, MP
