Polly is juggling the care of her wheelchair-bound mother, her pet-sitting business and the sale of the family home. On top of that she finds herself having to deal with an arrogant but really sexy realtor, and Christmas is coming! None of that seems important, though, when she finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation and must find the real killer before an innocent homeless man and his dog are wrongly convicted. Nothing much happens in the small town of Mallowapple, Maine, but with the Christmas holidays coming it's a busy time for Polly Parrett and her pet-sitting crew. Temperatures are plummeting, snow is falling
The bush animals are fed up with Dingo Dog's bullying so they hatch a storming idea to teach him a lesson. It is retold with a twist by storyteller, poet and anthologist Andrew Fusek Peters. Tales from around the world provide an insight into cultures other than our own.
The young Inuit child Moshi longs for a pet dog like the one owned by her friend Jessica. Moshi's father explains that the puppies that Nuna, their missing sled dog, is expecting are work dogs not playthings. While out walking, Moshi and Jessica are surprised by a sudden whiteout. Nuna finds the children and leads them to shelter in a small shed, where the dog is keeping her puppies. While the girls huddle with the pups, Nuna runs off, soon returning with rescuers. Praised by her father for thinking "like an Inuk" to survive the snow, Moshi happily chooses a pup--deciding she would rather have a sled dog than a pet.
Some conferences produce proceedings, others an inspiration to labor, which finally leads to a published work. Such has been the case with regard to this volume. In 1984, the Center for Ethics, Medicine, and Public Issues held a conference with the title 'When are Competent Patients Incompetent?' with the support of the Texas Committee for the Humanities, a state-based program of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Assistance was provided by both Baylor College of Medicine and the Institute of Religion. This conference evoked a con- siderable interest in examining further the moral status of competency determinations in the clinical setting. This interest is realized in this volume, which now affords us an opportunity to thank all those individ- uals who made the conference possible, only some of whom are acknowledged in this Preface. In particular, we wish to express our gratitude to Baruch A. Brody, Rebecca Dresser, the Honorable Jerome Jones, H. Steven Moffic, Margery W. Shaw, Eleanor Tinsley, and Albert Van HeIden. The volume took its shape through the labors of Earl Shelp and Mary Ann Gardell Cutter, who inspired the further evolution of the papers presented at the conference and attracted contributions from individuals who had not attended. Earl Shelp and Mary Ann Gardell Cutter have produced a volume following extensive reflection and dialogue; they were ably assisted in the final preparation of the manu- script by Thomas J. Bole III and George Khushf, to whom special thanks are due.
It is not terrorists Americans should be concerned with going forward in the 21st Century, it is the Republican Party.....The party has been taken over by extremists-radicals-persons devoid of common decency....such as Ted Cruz, the Koch bros., John Boehner, Paul Ryan, et al....Who have gone to war against women, children, our seniors, our environment, the poor, our grandchildren, ad nauseam ....and who want to roll civilization back to the 8th Century, BC....For instance, they want American women barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen, i.e., persons without rights...just look at what they say and vote on.....They want to prevent women from having contraceptives-so the government can force women to have children--and if they get pregnant, even if they are raped, or if this puts their life in peril, radical Republicans all across America have voted to shut down our clinics-in their attack on women's rights! To state in a few words the Republicans, today, are NOT DECENT PEOPLE, it is impossible to call oneself a Christian, and not follow his teachings.....and IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO BE A CHRISTIAN, AND VOTE REPUBLICAN [on Amazon] in short...decent people do not act the way they do.....
