Here and There - by Ruth L. Weiss Hohberg - $15

Humans have been traveling since time immemorial for different reasons. Curiosity to learn “what’s out there,” necessity, a hope for a better life, have been leading factors. Travel has brought about cross-pollination to civilizations; systems of governance, commerce, ways of doing things have evolved in response to the new brought in from somewhere else. Pleasure and educational travel are most likely more recent additions to reasons for looking beyond the immediate horizon. For much of her personal experience, Ruth Hohberg traveled with her husband Robert. There was always someone to take counsel with if in doubt about the direction to take in an airport or in a city, and someone to advise on a course of action if one of them didn’t feel up to par. Since becoming a widow and traveling solo, everything has changed. Not only does Ruth have to make directional and other on-the-spot decisions without help, but unless she meets like-minded folks in the tour group, there isn’t anyone with whom to share her impressions, leaving her to her own devices. On the surface, it’s not a big issue. Many single travelers enjoy the independence solitude provides and prefer not to be accompanied on their wanderings or interrupted in their thoughts. For Ruth, a friendly and fairly outgoing sort, the mutuality of sharing the awe-inspiring moment is important. The tours captured in this collection were taken both solo and in the company of her "travel buddies.” Join Ruth on her excursions across America. It just may inspire an “Ah, yes, I remember,” a different take on the same place, or “I’d like to go there.” Whichever it is, it will be a voyage of discovery that no one can ever take away from you.

Moments and Memories - by Ruth L. Weiss Hohberg - $15

I share this selection of remembered experiences with the intent to amuse and, with any luck, to offer support in thorny life passages toward “the light at the end of the tunnel.” As unique as we are, we have startling similarities; we all need to be appreciated, to love and be loved, to help, and to care. At rare moments, we make a connection and understand one another deeply. Those times are memorable and amazing parts of our human experience.

The View from Jerusalem - translatedby Ruth L. Weiss Hohberg - $12.99

Beyond an Album - by Bob Kiang - $9.95

This is a Dad’s intimate account of watching his daughter grow up. These short essays chronicle her development - mostly in her formative years - from Battle with Cheerios when she was seven months old, to her jubilant celebration of her acceptance to a university when she reached age 18. Undoubtedly, many of the episodes, such as her first step, her first words, her fist swim competition, are familiar experiences of most parents, but the contemporaneous and vivid descriptions will surely resonate with many of the parents, and particularly, the grandparents.

Bits of S & T - by Bob Kiang - $9.99

From the Author: As an engineer, I have always been interested in Science and Technology. Towards the latter part of my career, I found myself drawn to a variety of science-related topics. For instance, my interest in cosmology got a boost after I read Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time; and my interest in DNA started with a chapter on Genetics in my daughter’s high school textbook. These diverse fields are quite removed from my own field of expertise, which is aerospace engineering. My engineering background meant I was able to probe deeper into a subject, beyond what one normally reads in news reports. As I read more on each of those topics, I realized that I would likely to forget many of the details I had learned a few years down the road. That was when I started writing these short notes with the intention of preserving my own memory. From time to time, when I shared some of my writings with a few close friends of mine, they encouraged me to consolidate these notes into a book. Since the topics covered herein spread over a wide spectrum, I had a hard time coming up with a title for the book. Eventually, I settled on the present title: Bits of S&T – Science and Technology. The word “Bits” is actually quite appropriate. When I embark on the study of a specific subject, I search the internet for relevant information, be it news reports, popular science articles, government publications, or even scientific journal articles, then try to fit the bits and pieces together to enable myself a better understanding of the subject. I am hoping the reader will reap similar benefits. The book is not meant for a reader to read from cover to cover. Each note is essentially independent of the others. Treat it as a magazine and pick whatever strikes your fancy.

MIND According to Logos - by A. Irving Rosenberg - $14

In 1980, Irv Rosenberg made his first contact with Wanda Sue Parrott, and they have been corresponding ever since. Irv says: “I owe Wanda my gratitude for having introduced me to her Dialogues with Logos that continued over the years. Information from ‘Logos’ has expanded and enriched my experience and knowledge in the fields of psychology, physics, and the metaphysical realms. Many others, such as Eileen Garrett and Jane Roberts, first had to go into a self-hypnotic trance and lose consciousness in order to allow a higher entity to speak through them, while they themselves were unaware of what was going on. In Wanda's case, she is completely alert while engaging in mental conversation with her Logos entity. She proposes intelligent questions and meaningful responses to the information Logos provides, so particular answers to questions that I, Irving, have submitted, are given an intelligent and often remarkable response.”

“Logos” says, “you and I are closer than you realize. I am like a being behind a door and you are like a being before the door. I am within, in communion with the Deep. You are outside, and cut off from communion with the Deep... "You may rest on this, and we shall proceed with discussion of particulars when you are again ready to knock, and the door will be opened, ask and you will receive, and as I have spoken to you, so may each seeker of light so receive when the child approaches the father (masculine) within and listens to the Voice, The Logos. "Many are called but few are chosen, for the simplest truth is: few choose to ask. Belabor yourself not with guilt and doubt, but rejoice, for you took the step. You knocked. Now, rest. Our body has work to be done."

Diarma – by Michael Staley - $15

On the surface, Alexander Christos is a seemingly upwardly mobile young professional rapidly approaching middle age. But scratch beneath the surface and what is exposed is a soul that is emotionally, mentally, and spiritually burnt to a crisp. He’s done. And he wants out… all the way out. But then, in the very process of fashioning his own demise, something intervenes. That “Something” is about to breathe new life – and death – into him. Lured to the Island of Diarma, Christos believes it a near-Utopian advanced living state. But it proves to be no Utopia at all; rather, an arena that employs a methodology that is at once brutal, merciless, and magnificent. In the spirit of John Fowles’ The Magus, Michael Staley’s Diarma will take you on a trip that will stretch the bounds of your imagination. In the process, it lays out a very interesting and feasible blueprint for mankind’s “Next Step.” Reality… is a Place, a state of mind in which you live, thrive, and grow…

Loki and Simba – by Michael Staley - $15

Everything is the result of Cause and Effect. The Cause: In the early 1900s, a man is accused of murdering another man for killing a wolf. The accused man responds, "No, I did not murder a man who was about to kill a wolf, I killed a man who was about to murder a wolf... an entire family of them." The heinous climax of the ensuing trial sets the stage for The Effect manifesting itself some eighty years later in horrendously grisly murders throughout the Northeast. A parapsychologist and a cop, with the help of a handwritten log dating back to the time of the infamous trial, painstakingly unravel the mystery and in the process come to fully comprehend that "when you dance with the devil, you don't get to lead."

Banking on Murder – by R. M. Zurkan - $15

Dina, a bank manager for the largest bank on Long Island, New York, has been murdered. Her murderer remains at large. Dina's elder sister is certain that Dina knew her murderer; she applies for a job in the same bank so she can meet the people Dina knew and try to figure out which of them killed her. Dina hinted that something illegal was going on at the bank. Her sister now wishes she had listened more closely but, as Dina disapproved of her life style and her marriages, she mostly tuned her out. Now, too late, she knows that her sister was right. Suspects abound – the customers: a dentist who brings in diamonds to use as collateral, stones that turn out to be fake; his battered wife; a woman from his past who bore him a son he never knew; and the bank employees – the bank manager who has a crush on the sexy credit officer; his neurotic wife; a teller with a guilty secret; a guard with a hidden past. Dina’s sister sets a trap and risks getting caught in it herself. The motive is money, an employee conspiring with a customer in an unholy scheme to swindle the elderly out of their homes. When Dina found out about it, someone decided she had to be stopped.

The Boondoggler’s Bible - by Wanda Sue Parrott - $14

Fighting “city hall” is no fun. If you’ve ever had a legal encounter with a government agency—be it city, county, state or federal—you know how frustrating bureaucratic red tape can be. You can’t change city hall, whether you are trying to do business with it or are employed by it, but you can change your attitude. A positive attitude can stave off broken relationships, premature stroke or even death due to unnecessary agency-induced frustration. This little book is the result of my own survival technique, and I hope it helps you win against city hall in your own case. This is a general overall look at standard operating delay tactics known as boondoggles, so you must creatively adapt your own approach to fit your own problems and situation. Boondoggles are not confined to city hall. Such stall-and-delay techniques are operable on all levels of society, including in one’s personal family life. They are summarized by the old advice given by experts on etiquette about answering ticklish questions: Don’t say yes; don’t say no; say maybe—and then never give a final answer. Or, to put it more bluntly: Keep them waiting until they go broke, give up, move on, lose interest, or die. Whether you win money is not the point; coming out of your ordeal with a sense of humor, good will and health are paramount. So, since there’s a strong chance you, too, are the victim of boondoggling, or will be in the future, let’s get started. Enjoy the challenge. It could save your sanity and life, just as it did mine. The secret is to practice this old adage: If you can’t fight them, join them. In other words, learn as much as you can about the Boondoggle Game and then use that knowledge to your own advantage. To be or not to be a Boondoggler? That is the question!

This fun book by Wanda Sue Parrott just might help you win your fight with City Hall!

Tribute to the "Unknown Namesake," an unidentified elderly Native American woman captured on photo-film in 1910 by photographer Edward S. Curtis (1868-1952).

While her name remains a mystery to us, we identify with her through the Great Spirit that unites all and honor her as an individual and as a representative of a lost way of life. Thus, the goal of this work is preservation of Native American customs, beliefs, teachings, languages and other facts through the poetry, song lyrics, fiction, and non-fiction contained herein. Additionally, the 2010 White Buffalo Native American Poet Laureate Winner Dr. Carl B. Reed and two White Buffalo Calf Award winners, Barbara Youngblood Carr and Dr. Charles A.

Guruji’s Secret Love Sound – by Wanda Sue Parrott - $14

Visiting my 89-year old uncle in his nursing home was never pleasant, but it was outright tragic one day when he literally floated down the hall in a happy daze. He had been given a pill known as a “mood elevator” to counter his depression. He was dangerously “high.” I was saddened, knowing the trend once kicked off by the counter-culture of the late 1960s and 1970s—getting high on drugs—had finally become so legal that even the elderly could be victims. I realized how lucky I was. An ancient guru from India taught me to remain harmoniously balanced by abstaining from drugs. All I needed was his prescription: air both inhaled and exhaled as he breathed to live a healthy, very looooooooong life. And so, I knew it was time to share his secret so others may also reap the benefits of his splendid wisdom. Thus, this booklet is shared with you in the spirit of freedom.

She read the poem at literary conventions, in libraries, and on street corners.

Set in the heart of lands which temporarily housed various  Native  American  tribes  as they were pushed west during the land expansion of the early 1800s, this updated version of the book reveals for the first time how seven male Native Americans from different tribes appeared in spirit form and helped Wanda Sue Parrott build and win her matter.

This is a public-service pot boiler in which the antagonist is the home site where Cherokee Indians may have camped during the federally mandated relocation (genocide) of 1838-39, when the Trail of Tears passed through Missouri en route to the so-called "Nations" in Oklahoma. The appearance of an Unknown Indian poet's spirit, and Wanda Sue's revelation she had a Chickasaw ancestor, make this poetry book a living literary marker along the historic route on which Wanda Sue Parrott is known literally and literarily as "The Last Indian on The Trail of Tears." Her active one-woman stand against city hall, which began in August 2000, ended with acquisition of her house by the City of Springfield on February 2, 2009.

Limited copies may be available to order from the author by contacting Wanda at amykitchenerfdn@hotmail.com. Price includes shipping and handling. Please allow two weeks for delivery after confirmed receipt of order.

Blessings by Divine Design - by Barbara Quin - $14

We are designed, or programmed, to express the Body of Spirit; the impulses and drives that move us to want certain things are our signals or signs of the physical counterpart to the spiritual component.

There is a Divine purpose in wanting physical things and wanting to enjoy this physical life. That’s why we’re here – but our experiences become so much more rewarding and revealing when we understand we are Spirit: Being and that every time we experience something on a physical level, it is God or Source that experiences it, so naturally God/Source will want to have the best experiences possible in order to enjoy Its existence. After all, who doesn’t want a more Divine and Wonderful Life?

Utilizing the Art of Visionization through the techniques of Mental Mapping, you can create the life of your dreams and fulfill the Divine Law of Spirit Expression!

Will it be enough to change her outlook on life and love forever? Will she be strong enough to face the truth about her own opinions and beliefs about love? Can she get past the hurt of the past and find her way to embrace love available to her now and in the future?
