Great New Books
King of Kings by Wilbur Smith
An epic story of love, betrayal, courage and war that brings together two of Wilbur Smith's greatest families in this long-awaited sequel to his worldwide bestseller, The Triumph of the Sun.
The A List by J A Jance
More than ten years after the abrupt end of her high-profile broadcasting career, Ali Reynolds has made a good life for herself in her hometown of Sedona, Arizona. Years may have passed, but Dr. Edward Gilchrist has not forgotten those responsible for his downfall--certainly not Ali Reynolds, who exposed his dirty deeds to the world. Life without parole won't stop him from getting his revenge. Tattooed on his arm are the initials of those who put him behind bars, and he won't stop until every person on that Annihilation List is dead.
American Moonshot by Douglas Brinkley
A look back at the days when American presidents and politicians believed in and promoted science--days when there was a world to win, along with the heavens. Douglas has mastered a great deal of the facts and lore surrounding the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo projects that landed American astronauts on the moon 50 years ago. As his account unfolds, two themes emerge. One is that fiscal conservatives, exemplified by President Dwight Eisenhower, were reluctant to fuel the emerging military-industrial complex, affording John F. Kennedy a campaign issue that revolved around the "missile gap" between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. Terrific for space-race enthusiasts, and students of Cold War politics.
The Matriarch by Susan Page
The recently deceased wife of President George H. W. Bush and mother of President George W. Bush exemplifies an old-school style of feminine strength and influence in this warmhearted biography. Bush (1925-2018) is possibly the last First Lady to have had no career. She was a sometimes controversial icon of postwar wifely devotion, gamely uprooting herself from her affluent New England home to a chancy new life in Texas and being a full-time (and occasionally depressed) mom to six children. Bush admirers will enjoy Page's vivid depiction of her as an appealing, down-to-earth, sharp-tongued figure who held her own in a man's world.
Sleep. It’s as elusive as leprechaun gold, and twice as valuable. The number of health conditions linked to poor or inadequate sleep is almost endless, with obesity, diabetes and heart disease topping the list. But sleep ought to be something we can control—just get to bed early and sleep the night away, right? So how come you’re so tired? The answer may surprise you. If you are not able to fall asleep, are waking up during the night or are just plain not feeling refreshed in the morning, see if one of these factors is souring your sweet dreams: BLUE LIGHT INSOMNIA-turn off electronics an hour or so before bed because these devices emit a blue light that suppresses melatonin, a sleep inducing hormone; MENOPAUSAL INSOMINA- declining estrogen can prompt disturbances in the middle of the night. Research indicates that about a quarter of menopausal women have sleep problems severe enough to impact their ability to function during the day. To be continued…
Stingy Schobel Says
There are two myths about wine- that any good wine will benefit from aging and that it costs a bundle to store it so that it ages properly. Most wine today-about 90%-won’t benefit from aging. It is best drunk within a year or two of bottling. But even if you’re storing wine for a few weeks or months, you can ruin it. To avoid that don’t store it in the kitchen and keep it away from windows as heat ruins wine. Also keep it still as vibration over time can spoil the wine.
What did the guy at the party say when he realized there was nothing left to dip his chip in? “ I’ve hit guac bottom.”
