Kiss Chronicles

by Virginia M. Sanders

When I turned 30 without getting my first kiss — yes, you read that right. Read over it again if you need to. Anyway, when I turned 30, I decided I had to take action and get a first kiss to be remembered. So I devised a method to get my first kiss in a way that would be guaranteed to make it meaningful: I would auction off my first kiss for charity. In this quirky memoir, I share details from my life, exploring exactly how it was that I came to a kissless crossroads at age 30, and I tell all about the exciting and challenging experiences I faced as I developed the Kiss Chronicles project. Note: This ebook is free, but the story invites readers to make an optional donation to a cancer-related charity. Full details inside....

Marconi: His life with images

by Barbara Valotti

Marconi travelled across the Atlantic more than eighty times, he made two world tours and visited dozens of countries, but what he did above all was to connect far distant places by his wireless systems of communication. At twenty Marconi settled in London, at forty-five he chose to live on a yacht, and at fifty-three he settled in Rome. Yet, he never forgot his roots or the places where his invention took shape: Bologna and the Porrettana, Pontecchio and Villa Griffone. When he was awarded the Nobel Prize at the age of thirty-five, he was already one of the most famous men in the world. Marconi’s biography is rich in drama and detail. In this reference guide we provide a brief chronology of his life in text and image, which invites you, the reader, to get closer to Marconi and his human...

A Soldier’s Tale: Albert Money at the Battle of Aubers Ridge, May, 1915

by David Tuffley

I present this first hand account by my maternal grandfather, Private Albert Money , of the King’s Royal Rifles. The cover photo was taken November 1917 after spending several hospitalised years in France, Britain, and Australia, recuperating from his wounds, hence the Australian, not British Army uniform. Albert was born around 1885, a younger son of a Northamptonshire farming family in England. With no prospects of inheriting the farm, Albert joined the King’s Royal Rifles Corps around 1905 when he was still a boy of 16. Thus he became a professional peace-time soldier in a Regiment known for its overseas activities. The King’s Royal Rifles had been raised in the American colonies in 1756 as the 62nd Regiment. Their reason to exist was to defend the British colonies against French...

They were always there, from day one of opening my facebook account, which is probably a good thing for all of us to keep in mind. Just keep hitting the “older posts” command at the bottom of the page as you scroll down, and eventually you reach the origins of your facebook life. If we could just conduct a similar process for life on earth, we’d solve the mystery of how life began. But as far as an individual life is concerned, mysteries will always abound regarding purpose and conduct: What am I doing here? And am I doing it well?

How is it that even when he was facing court proceedings for tax evasion so many people were still seriously tipping him to be the next England manager?

The 1950's: A Time To Grow

by Jon Peasey

The 1950's ushered in a tremendous time of change as Australia emerged from the post World War 2 years and began rebuilding for the future. As the decade rolled on, outer western Sydney gradually changed from its rural setting and steadily became urbanised. Some very early recollections of my childhood and then a description of my home town Smithfield sets the mood for the rich variety of events that unfold; as I grew from early childhood into my teenage years. 'The 1950's - A Time To Grow' is based on recollections of incidents in my life; growing up in Smithfield, in what was then a rural area in outer western Sydney, Australia. The Smithfield of today is vastly different to the Smithfield of the 1950's. All the events depicted in these memoirs certainly added spice and variety to my chi...

Are Not My People Worthy: the Story of Matthew 25: Ministries

by Wendell Mettey

In a world filled with terror, strife and hopelessness, we seek validation that it is possible to make a difference. Through prayer, faith and unremitting effort, Wendell Mettey proves that when ordinary people do extraordinary things, it is possible to change the world. “Are Not My People Worthy” chronicles the growth of Matthew 25: Ministries from a small suitcase ministry to an international humanitarian relief organization shipping aid to the poorest of the poor worldwide. The story of Matthew 25: Ministries is the story of one man’s unquenchable vision and faith and the many individuals and groups who contributed their time, energy and donations to enable that vision to become a reality. The 128 page story told in 23 simple, compelling chapters, takes the reader on an amazing jo...

Rumor Has It: A 2000 Year Brainstorm 2007-2009

by Mike Hicks

In this first installment I begin postulating the idea of a brain-centered universe. If you think of creation as a design by God, you have to consider the logistics behind it. One is his motive which likely is curiosity. From there one could suggest the most efficient design would center on the most complicated facet of our existence, the human brain. I suggest sometime around the Kennedy assassination the Intelligence community seized power of the government, and military. Which is more likely to you? A bullet that defies physics or a well orchestrated coup d’etat. I was told on my father’s death bed that he never progressed past Major in the Air Force, “because he wouldn’t do something illegal” by my mother. He also had told me he knew members of the Warren Commission. Seinfeld...

Teach Me Love

by Manie van der Westhuizen

A recording of my personal life experience with my Savior, Jesus Christ. I do not promote any religious organization, nor do I have any attention to claim this book as a religious work of art. It was my biggest privilege in life to utilize my time to read the Bible from Genesis Chapter 1 verse 1 to the end Revelation Chapter 22 verse 21. Thereafter I closed the Bible, took the hand of my Redeemer and walked with him. To hold and obey his commands is the essentialia of Life. I am honored to know that my life was extended to date with more than fifteen years. Three Coronary Bypass Operations during these fifteen years were all for the good and worth it for granting me the opportunity to write this book. JUST FOR YOU....

Bare Naked Wayne

by Wayne Schmidt

A tell-all self-portrait of a private man, chronicling the author's quest for truth, love, and purpose in life. Stories include: "Growing Up with Jesus;" "God Sends Maggots;" "Thank God for LSD;" "Tom Washington Shit in My Hat;" "I Burn Miss Utah at the Stake;" "Saving the Great Lakes;" "I Wore Abbie Hoffman's Coat;" "Fake Fred, Secret Salaries, and Rat-tailed Maggots;" his sordid tale of life as the sixth husband of a white witch; and vignettes of rabble-rousing in the '70s and '80s. His chronicles are frank, sometimes raw or vulgar, and occasionally embarrassing. .") All are true, the author swears, insofar as it's possible to tell the bare naked truth about yourself. Here, then, is the life of Wayne -- sometime environmentalist and one-time land developer, Jesus freak and atheist, hipp...

Not at home and away

by J.M. Harper

This story is not just a story of love; it’s a story about abandonment and indifference in the end. This is a story about how someone can build an illusion and after some time, wake someone up and this person is realizing that all what happened in another country, in another continent for love very far away from home was almost like a dream without possibility to find footsteps in the back in order to understand questions or to find reasons for the present situation, especially for the one who decided to travel to reach each other. It feels like being alone suddenly and literally in a forest full of memories inside, full of pictures, full of stuff collected about that trip, where to put all that? Is a big question that the author is trying to figure out in order to move on, but love it...

Cancer: A Message Of Hope

Dear Friend: Re: "Let's Save Six" I believe that we are put on this earth to help each other and to pass on to the next generations the lessons we have learned. Of the things that surprised me most in recent years through the presentation to thousands of people of my autobiography, "No Such Thing as Impossible" is the scourge that is causing to the humanity, without distinction or country, race or age a "silent killer", the prostate cancer. No man should die of prostate cancer if it is detected on time and the right action is taken. I am a six years prostate cancer survivor and the lessons I learned throughout my treatment and recovery need to be passed on....why? In the time it takes you to have dinner six men will die in USA needlessly from this silent killer and twenty eight are going t...

Keiko-san's Story: An Account of the Minamata Tragedy

by Eustacia Tan

Four years ago, I came back from Japan full of ideas. But due to my short-term memory and general inertia, most ideas fizzled out, save one - to type out Keiko-san's story. Let's have a little flashback: at the time of the trip, most of us were concerned mainly with anime, JPop and the typical teenage stuff. But we grew serious at times. Once at the Nagasaki Peace Memorial, and the other, at the Minamata Disease Municipal Museum. When I got back, I was full of starry, albeit vague, ambitions about making a difference in the lives of the sufferers. But the most I got was to circulate the story I typed/transcribed among our small group. Nothing concrete came out of it. But now, four years later, thanks to the power of Smashwords, I managed to get the story out. Yup, the story is basically wh...

The Woman who Rewrote History

by Claire Lloyd

Luisa Isabel María del Carmen Cristina Rosalía Joaquina Álvarez de Toledo y Maura, Isabel to her friends, was the 21st Duchess of Medina-Sidonia, one of the oldest aristocratic families in Spain. She became known as the Red Duchess because of her political convictions, for which she was imprisoned under the Franco regime. A prolific writer and a controversial historian, she inherited one of the largest private historical archives in Europe, and dedicated her life to its organisation and preservation. Controversial to the end, on her deathbed she married her female companion and secretary to ensure that the archive would remain intact in the ducal palace at Sanlúcar de Barrameda and not be divided amongst her children.

Steal This Hero: An Abbie Hoffman Love Song In Two Verses, One Chorus and a Coda

by Jack Preston King

A funny and deeply moving memoir of the author's finding Abbie Hoffman's "Steal This Book" while a pre-teen growing up in a Midwest small town at the end of the Nixon era, and of his disappointing "coming of age" as a full-fledged Abbie-loving cultural revolutionary "Yippie" during a '70s-'80s that had long ago traded "The Revolution" for the hedonistic, "Shut up and dance!" ethic of Disco-mania. [Begin Excerpt] "Mom," I boldly offered one evening, "Listen to what they're saying over there. They're right. America is the Great Satan. We've trashed the Third World for two hundred years. It's about time they trashed us back." Stunned silence. Burning cheeks. "Jesus, Mom," I continued. "Just look at the situation over there." I was rolling now, no time to think. I'd shocked my way onto center ...

Juan-les-Pins Whitechapel Paris

by Margaret Turner

This book is free until summer 2013. If there’s one place and time that marks the beginning of the modern Riviera summer holiday, it is Juan les Pins, on the Cote d’Azur, in the 1930s. This is where sunbathing and waterskiing were invented, where beach, sea and sun came together to create the archetypal Mediterranean summer. To grow up as an English girl – at home in two cultures – in the centre of this beautiful and extraordinary place, at such a dramatic time, made for a fascinating and unusual childhood. Shattered suddenly by evacuation to England in 1940, to work as a nurse in the London Hospital in Whitechapel during the war. Then a return to France, and the British Embassy in Paris, with all the privations, challenges and opportunities of the post-war years. This autobiograph...

As an environmental sciences researcher at the University of Toronto and a consultant living and working worldwide it became clearly evident that the “real life” belongs to our 6 billion co-inhabitants elsewhere. This monograph provides brief often amusing and emotive, glimpses into the reality we seldom yet see. The book is structured by country and begins with surprising past, local incidents. China, South Africa and Brazil are among the several counties glimpsed from abroad....

Chalk Pits & Cherry Stones

by Jean Hendy-Harris

A story of a working class childhood spent in a uniquely at odds with itself region of the Thames where customs of urban living clashed awkwardly with rural traditions. Jean was just one of hundreds of children who swarmed the narrow back streets of once attractive waterside villages long sacrificed to the shadow and ugliness of relentless nineteenth century brick and cement production. The unruly poor growing up in the environs of Gravesend and Northfleet were accustomed to deprivation and once the first flurry of fear receded they became just as accustomed to air raids and the omnipresent threat of sudden and total obliteration. They learned early to treat the hitches and glitches of life with realistic optimism. Even with the war safely behind them, circumstances dictated that life offe...
