After returning from the Middle East, Johnny Edwards buys an old BMW and restores it at his mechanics garage in Del Mar, California. They get the idea for a road trip to the Historic Races in Monterey. Even though his friend backs out Johnny makes the drive through the back roads and highways of Central California to quiet Monterey. However, Monterey is anything but quiet this time of the year and is a gear-heads dream. He meets up with the locals and stays at the neighborhood campground. Tasting the local fare he meets up with some winemakers out in Carmel Valley and redirects his race attention to that of making some great red wine. A prominent Carmel Valley winemaker teaches him the old fashioned traditional methods of harvesting, crushing and bottling wines. This is a once in a lifetime adventure that only a wine enthusiast could appreciate.
Keeping Up with Today's Wines is a handy journal for recording your wine tasting experiences. The increasing choices and variety of wine with clever and sometimes similar names can made it hard to keep track of the delights and disappointments found when dining, at wine bars, and in stores. You can list and score 100 wines as well as note wineries, wine bars, and wine festivals you have or want to visit. Suggestions for use include designating one journal for a favorite winery that offers a large variety of wine and to keep separate journals for wineries visited and sampling done, and for wine festivals attended. Its size makes it easy to keep with you and store in your backpack, purse, or glovebox. A great gift for the wine lover in your life.
The Judeo-Christian bible begins with a description/ of the universe God has created. In the center of that universe is a tree laden with the gifts man needs. Man is made from the very being by God and charged with protecting that tree - the tree of life, of good and evil. Man abuses that trust. God does not punish man. Man is forced to live with the consequences of that mistrust. Much of the rest of the Old Testament describes the result of that mistrust: wars, murder, struggles, misuse of the land. Even then God does not abandon man. From a thunder filled mountain God attempts to reestablish man's trust in God. Man again abuses that trust. God sends prophets to help restore that trust. Some are ignored, some killed. God does not quit. Again through a tree God attempts to breach man's mistrust. This book will not look at the consequences of man's mistrust. It will concentrate on the poetic images the Bible uses to describe God's attempt to help us be aware of that trust. This history is told in a series of poems. I hope many will have experienced these thoughts. Even if no one even reads these thoughts, writing this book has given me a greater appreciation of the Bible and how so many of the individual books are so interrelated. I hope you enjoy the book and it helps give you a greater appreciation of the unity of the Bible. I hope it helps all human beings recognize our common unity and helps restore a sense of God's trust in all of us. I hope it will spark a sense that each of us needs to in some way make the presence of God real. The final part of the book has a series of questions young persons might be asking about the messages of scripture. These are questions adults may have asked when they were children, questions that might be helpful if we asked them as adults
This rate book is brought back into print because it tells the story of alchemy in such simple terms that most all can understand. The cryptic language and symbolism commonly found in alchemy is laid bare so we can comprehend exactly what was meant and what was happening during the pursuit of the alchemical elixir. The premise of the book is to show that the science of alchemy reveals the one law operating within the human spirit and in our quest for immortality. Cockren insists that there is a Divine Plan, and by exploring and experimenting with alchemy, we will find ourselves on the path that will lead us to it. This book must be read in full, so the "complete picture" is shown, and the reader will then see how it all connects. Different parts of the world are covered, as well as different periods of history. There is also a physical alchemy, relating to medicine, that is covered besides the spiritual. Excellent material exists in this small book on the great men of alchemy like St. Germain, Nicholas Flamel, Basil Valentine, and Paracelsus. The book concludes by reprinting two of the world's most important Hermetic alchemical texts -- The Golden Tracate of Hermes and The Book of the Revelation of Hermes.
