50 and Fabulous


50 and Fabulous


$4.49


Some women dread the approach of their fiftieth birthdays, fearing it?s goodbye to good times and good looks. Others barely notice the transition; they know how to welcome each age for its particular blessings. These are the women Jaki Scarcello calls? Women of the Harvest women who aren?t trying to turn back the clock, but reaping the fruits of a life well lived, recognising and receiving the real gifts this stage of life brings. Women for whom? fifty plus? doesn?t mean less, but more. Drawing on her own experience, as well as exhaustive research into other women?s stories?a series of interviews conducted in five countries?Scarcello shows with wisdom and wit how changing our attitude toward ageing can bring about a? virtuous cycle? of rejuvenation. Women who know this embrace the years after 50 with a spirit of optimism and energy that is truly liberating. They understand that in maturity a woman has the potential for genuine elegance, a beauty more than skin-deep that sparkles confidently and generously from the eyes, and a whole new brand of personal sexiness. On a deeper level, they possess a secret power and joy, which radiates outward into the world and illuminates everyone around them. These women who blossom in their 50s know that their time of life is a time of grace, and that it?s richer and more ripe with possibility now than at any other time in our history. Through their stories there runs a common thread of spiritual transformation’the harvest of a good life when it starts to divest itself of youth’s superficial anxieties. In the space that opens up beyond 50, experience and potential form a perfect fusion: this is the most fertile ground a woman ever knows.

But their paths after that point differ considerably. Damon’s strength, living a steady life, intersects Jack’s fault, living life too fully. Damon’s road allows him to think he has life’s best. Jack’s leads him through mental anguish and ethical dilemmas. When Jack leans on Damon for help against a dread disease, Life shows Damon that his stability and moral code lack life’s passion and that his frivolous friend has the secret of robust living.

Beneath the Raptor’s Wing


$4.99


At the start of the twenty-first century, unconditional war swept across the Earth. A war that engulfed the great and the small, the rich and the poor, giving no quarter. Each side strove for unconditional victory, and as battle built upon battle, the living began to envy the dead. Chastised by the cataclysm that they had unleashed, the governments of Earth came together. Humanity vowed to put an end to war and to strive for the betterment of every living creature. A united Earth created Starfleet, an interstellar agency whose mission was to explore the cosmos, to come in peace for all mankind. It was a na?ve wish that was battered by interstellar realities, yet man persists in the belief that peace is the way. Banding together with other powers to form a Coalition of Planets, humanity hopes that the strength each can offer the other will allow for peaceful exploration. However, the rise of the Coalition strikes dread within the Romulan Star Empire. They feel its growing reach will cut them off from what is rightfully theirs. The Romulans know that the alliance is fragile, that the correct strategy could turn allies into foes. Perfecting a way of remotely controlling Coalition ships and using them as weapons against one another, the Romulans hope to drive a wedge of suspicion and mistrust between these new allies. One Starfleet captain uncovers this insidious plot: Jonathan Archer of the Enterprise. Determined not to lose what they have gained, outmanned and outgunned, the captains of Starfleet stand tall, vowing to defend every inch of Coalition space until the tide begins to turn. The Romulans now plan to strike at what they see as the heart of their problem. With nothing left to lose, the Romulan Star Empire engages in all-out war against humanity, determined once and for all to stop the human menace from spreading across the galaxy.

Borax, 30 C


Borax, 30 C


$5.14


Boiron – Borax 30 C – 80 Pellets Borax is the biborate of soda. As a medicine, it won its first laurels in the nursery, where it has long been used in the treatment of sore nipples and children’s sore mouth. Like all popular remedies, it has been greatly abused. Homeopathy has rescued it from the nursery and now offers it to the profession as a medicine of great value, telling when it may and when it may not be used. Underlying this sore mouth, which seems to be the keynote for the use of Borax, is a system or constitution which will permit of the sore mouth, that is, an illy-nourished system. Thus the infant becomes pale or of an earthy hue, its flesh grows soft and flabby; it cries a great deal when it nurses, screams out during sleep and awakens clinging to its mother as if frightened by a dream. The child is excessively nervous, so much so, that the slightest noise, the mere rustling of paper, or a distant heavy noise, will arouse and frighten it. This nervous excitability qualifies the pains. For instance, in the earache, you will find that each paroxysm of pain causes the child to start nervously. This earache is accompanied by soreness, swelling and heat of the ear, just as you find in BELLADONNA, PULSATILLA and CHAMOMILLA. There is a mucous or muco-purulent otorrhoea. Borax is distinguished from these similar remedies by this character of the nervousness, this starting with the pain or with slight noises, by the paleness of the face and above all by another well-proved symptom, the child dreads a downward motion. Thus if the little one is soundly asleep in its mother’s arms and she makes the attempt to lay it down in its crib, it gives a start and awakens. If she attempts to carry it down stairs, it will cling to her as if afraid of falling. This must not be confounded with the excitability of other medicines as Chamomilla and Belladonna. It is not the motion that awakens the child. The child will not awaken if it is moved without any downward motion.

After many years of living in the United Kingdom, Seeger found that she had stopped singing many of the traditional banjo tunes that she had included in her repertoire for years. In looking for a reconnection to American music, she discovered the contemporary topical song which she sings on this album.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban


Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban


$23.42


A brilliant new story featuring Harry and his friends, sequel to the award-winning Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Harry Potter is a very unusual boy. He can’t wait to get back to school after the summer holidays! But that’s not the only unusual thing about Harry; Harry’s school is Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and Harry is a wizard! When Harry, along with his best friends, Ron and Hermione, go back for their third year at Hogwarts, the atmosphere is tense. There’s an escaped mass murderer on the loose, and the sinister prison guards of the Azkaban have been called in to guard the school. Such a marriage of good writing, inventiveness, and sheer child-appeal has not been seen since Roald Dahl, perhaps even since Tolkien, Lewis, and Ransome. J.K. Rowling has woken a whole generation to reading. The Times Publishers Weekly: Rowling proves that she has plenty of tricks left up her sleeve in this third Harry Potter adventure, set once again at the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. Right before the start of term, a supremely dangerous criminal breaks out of a supposedly impregnable wizards’ prison; it will come as no surprise to Potter fans that the villain, a henchman of Harry’s old enemy Lord Voldemort, appears to have targeted Harry. In many ways this installment seems to serve a transitional role in the seven-volume series: while many of the adventures are breathlessly relayed, they appear to be laying groundwork for even more exciting adventures to come. The beauty here lies in the genius of Rowling’s plotting. Seemingly minor details established in books one and two unfold to take on unforeseen significance, and the finale, while not airtight in its internal logic, is utterly thrilling.B>From the PublisherFor twelve long years, the dread fortress of Azkaban held an infamous prisoner named Sirius
