TALKING ROCK Legs, a thirty-something single mother, has had enough of entitled rich men using her for their own purposes. To match her hot body, she creates a confident, in-charge alter ego determined to turn the tables and exploit them. She desires a life of wealth and power and when she meets Charlie Webb, a timid lawyer who is the nephew of a member of the Georgia State Senate, she realizes that 'high life' may finally be within her grasp. Her plan is to use his lack of confidence, his connections, and his ambition to make him a Senator and then marry him. To accomplish this goal, she uses her knowledge of a serial killer who operated in Georgia, Jim Coleman, who killed wealthy fathers and their sons with such skill that the murders were considered suicides. By targeting a random family first, to set the scene and to test Charlie's abilities and commitment, she then moves on to his uncle, the person she needs to eliminate in order to have Charlie appointed to fill his vacant Senate seat. Legs tips off Bill Dean, a prominent newspaper reporter, to ensure all suspicion is placed exactly where she wants it - on Jim Coleman. While the Georgia Bureau of Investigation follows the evidence on a wild goose chase, Legs and Charlie are on the fast track toward making all of their dreams come true.
Presents guidelines and advice for planning and implementing a proper and efficient wedding, focusing on practical logistics and tricky situations including ceremony protocol, reception mangement, and financial responsibilities.
Based on the true account of Jason Lightfoot, who worked in the behind the scenes intelligence gathering for the past twenty-six years. Jason takes you through his training, and overseas operations in the first part of his career. When the nineteen Islamic terrorists hijacked and flew those four commercial passenger jets into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and crashed the fourth one into a Pennsylvania field, killing three thousand innocent people, his world changes. Jason has his own methods of interrogating, finding and eliminating the mujahideen that are located on American, Mexican, and Canadian soil. Jasons home base is one of the most secure facilities in the United States. Everything Jason needs is at his disposal, and he uses it all to his advantage over the hidden terrorists cells located in the United States. Whether you agree with Jasons methods or not, his results cant be argued. Jason has been involved in the most secretive operations against extremists and terrorism, abroad and on American soil. He has assumed numerous identities in his lengthy career, and is fluent in six languages. At 56, he has endured the most extreme training available and maintains a strenuous training regime daily. He continues traveling overseas and in the USA. Jason lives in Las Vegas and works out of an unknown location in the Nevada desert.
Once described as “a place where God and man went fifty-fifty to produce perfection,” Rock Springs Park remained a landmark along the Lincoln Highway in Chester until 1970. In its heyday, this panhandle playground captivated 20,000 visitors daily with attractions including the World’s Greatest Scenic Railway, the Cyclone Roller Coaster, and a hand-carved 1927 Dentzel Carousel. Images of America: Rock Springs Park features over 200 rarely seen images and portrays the lifespan of the park from its history as Native American hunting grounds to its development as a local trolley park and full-fledged amusement park. The park hosted business and community picnic excursions and countless celebrity entertainers. Performer Bobby Vinton remembers the era of dances at the park as “a very romantic time . . . almost like something in the movies. There was the carousel, the guys in white shoes and girls that were all dressed up with their crinoline skirts.”
Trevor Riggs has already had a dream of a lifetime that not many get to do. Stand up on that stage and sing to those out in the audience screaming his name. But times had changed. You can’t stop growing older... Michelle looked at this man that she had met the day before. Alone except for family; no security around. She had remembered that he had retired from that circus of Rock and Roll a few years earlier. Trev stirred his tea. "Well, just FYI, that's just one part. That part now days is little and circumstantial. There's a lot more... to me than just that one part. I'm bones, organs, and flesh... I'm as human as anyone else. I possess no super powers- no more wearing spandex!” They laughed. “People tend to not see that. That's why it's so hard to meet anybody. They get hung up so bad on that one part." His thoughts suddenly drifted. “I remember back on how magical it was. If I had it to do over, I wouldn't change a thing.” He hesitated, “I want them to love me, for me, not for who I used to be.” Will Trevor get back to the normalcy he longs for?
Thruway Diaries Summary In Thruway Diaries, the Cadillac, that Black American symbol of achievement and success, having made it, provides no immunity to Big T and his family as they travel from Chicago to his native Mississippi in the early sixties and find themselves the target of police officers hell bent on making sure they know their place. It is even more unfortunate for Big T and his family that they are making the trip only a few years after Rosa Parks has refused to give up her seat to a white man on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, sparking a bus boycott that fuels the Civil Rights Movement. Even a car representing success can be seen as an affront to the status quo. God forbid one should display an ounce of visible pride, which could easily be interpreted as an act of defiance, an action that could land the unwary in a shallow grave. There are other places to vacationNew York and Chicagoto show off the Cadillac, as Big T knows and hears in no uncertain terms from his children. But home is where the heart is and millions of African Americans returned home each year to visit family and display their new found status. Some, like my Uncle Albert and Uncle John Dew, escaped Mississippi under the cover of darkness to avoid the penury system that held blacks in a state of economic servitude that was little better than slavery. So returning home in a modern car, sometimes a Cadillac as my Uncle Albert did, displaying the latest fashions, was an act of liberation, of financial independence, if not outright defiance. But Big T learns a harsh lesson that compels him to put his Cadillac on the blocks. Family comes first. Big Ts wife, Naomi, while willing to share in her husbands wishes to see his Mother, harbors a disturbing secret of her own from her days as a maid in a white household when the white master still took advantage of young black women without fear of being charged with sexual abuse. She has fled to Chicago to escape in the arms of Big T. Her experience leaves her on an emotional edge that is soothed only by the comfort of family, the distance from her native home and her hope for the future of her family. But what happens almost forty years later when a retired Big T pulls his Cadillac off the blocks and travels with his family to the Southeast, this time through Pennsylvania, Washington, D. C., and to Virginia? There are three generations instead of two in his Cadillac setting out to enjoy that dream vacation that includes a visit to the Washington, D. C. Vietnam Veterans Memorial to see a family member and to walk his granddaughter down the aisle. They could not be happier and they are very comfortable. The Cadillac Eldorado, after all, has been modernized and updated by grandson Tyrone, known also as Little T, himself an automotive design student at a prestigious Midwestern university. The past, the present, and the future are represented in Big Ts Cadillac. As with the typical family, they are not perfect, there is laughter and joking, stories from the past and some tension between mother and son about relationships, in this case an interracial one. But for Big T and Naomi, the golden years have been good to them. Naomi has hand stitched her granddaughters wedding dress. The dream wedding that she never had will be lived through her granddaughter as she walks down the aisle in the perfect dress, one that is without blemish. The wholesome family of law-abiding, God-fearing Americans heading on a vacation in their modernized Cadillac is driving into a very different world than the early sixties. It is world at the mercy of America's War on Drugs into which they are driving. In the security of their home and local community in which Big T travels, it mattered little to them that the United States Supreme Court has validated stop and frisk by police; that the Court has further ruled that any traffic offense committed by a driver, no matter how minor, is a legitimate legal basis
A comprehensive introduction to the inner workings of rock music, The Foundations of Rock goes back to the heart of the music itself from the time of its birth through the end of classic rock. Walter Everett expertly takes readers through all aspects of the music and its lyrics, leading fans and listeners to new insights and new ways to develop their own interpretations of the aural landscapes of their lives. Written with style, Everett does not depend on musical notation nor professional jargon, but rather combines text with nearly 300 newly written audio examples (performed on the companion website) and more than 100 expertly chosen photographs, to offer a rich text-and-web experience that brings new meanings to songs that have dominated music for a half-century. Through careful illustration, frequently citing the most familiar and pertinent examples from throughout the 1955-1970 period, The Foundations of Rock covers the nature and use of all musical instruments and vocal qualities; reveals the many different ways that phrases and sections of songs can be combined; discusses the materials and patterns in melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic invention; explains the many important ways that producers and engineers add to the artistry; and finally suggests paths for combining an understanding of all of these elements with interpretations of a song's lyrics. This is all done in thorough detail, and always with an ear towards the possible meanings such techniques convey in a music that has had a profound impact upon our world. In doing so, Everett helps readers create new depths of understanding and appreciation. Hundreds of memorable hit songs are referred to in order to illustrate every individual point, while twenty-five diverse classics of the period have been chosen for very close hearing from multiple perspectives. The reader will come away with a much deeper appreciation of the music of the Beatles and the Stones, the Supremes and the Temptations, the Dead and Janis, Elvis and Buddy Holly, the Beach Boys and the Rascals.
