Including stories from paradise and hard-won lessons in seamanship,Taleisin's Tales reflects back to the first miles Lin and Larry Pardey gained together on the second boat they built lovingly with teak carvel planking over sawn black locust frames. The book includes details from outfitting, provisioning, and final detailing during the early months Lin and Larry spent getting to know their new bluewater cruiser, as well as moments of melancholy as they let go of attachments to their first trusty boat, Seraffyn. The story takes the listener through those initial cautious 1000 coastal miles between California and the Sea of Cortez, discussing everything from sail handling to dinghy racing to the relative luxuries of bicycles and a custom-built sitztub. It reveals surprising and pleasant engagements with other sailors and locals along the Baja Peninsula. Then it launches the listener across the Pacific, sailing with the Pardeys on Taleisin's first offshore leg to French Polynesia, through the Cook Islands and Tonga, and on to New Zealand, where they eventually made their new home. If there is a lesson to be gained from listening to Taleisin's Tales, it's that slowing the pace and taking each day as it comes brings unexpected moments of clarity and joy. And that sailing across an ocean on a small boat is not easy but, with the right partner and attitude, can be beautifully rewarding.

Just getting started with product research and sourcing? Stuck trying to find ideas or find that "perfect" winning product? Want to find good selling products that others are ignoring? Interested in wholesale or private label products? If you answered yes, then this book is for you. If you are an experienced seller or are looking to do arbitrage, this book will have less value as I don't discuss sourcing by arbitrage. I don't do arbitrage, so I don't teach it. This book is written for the new or struggling seller wanting to source wholesale or private label products. What you will learn: Basic steps for finding top-selling products How to generate product ideas and look for trends How to validate demand Tips for finding suppliers Analyzing data to help you pick a product It took me five months of research before I pulled the trigger on my first products to sell on Amazon. Five months and countless hours. I have pages of notes with product ideas in many different categories. Some were wholesale products, others were ideas for my own products. I had some money set aside to buy inventory. But I couldn't commit. I was looking for...not necessarily the perfect product, but, well yeah, the perfect product. Fear of choosing "wrong" was holding me back. I knew that product selection was key to success so I needed to choose right. Another part of the problem was I had bigger ideas - I wanted to create a brand and I had some ideas as to what sorts of products I would carry. But those ideas required more capital than I was willing to invest for my first product. As a result, I put so much pressure on myself to dream big and think towards the future that I did nothing!

Change Your Words, Change Your World There are hundreds of books, workshops, and classes that teach us how to communicate effectively with others, but very few of us pay attention to how we speak to ourselves. Best-selling author and communication expert Cynthia Kane believes this is a travesty, and she is sounding the alarm! Kane writes that there in is an unreported epidemic of negative self-talk in our culture today. Many of us speak to ourselves in demeaning and hurtful ways, using language we would never use with anyone else. To make matters worse, we often don't even realize when we are doing this, as these old mental tapes play in repeating loops without our awareness. In Talk to Yourself Like a Buddhist, certified mindfulness and meditation instructor Cynthia Kane introduces the Middle Path of Self-Communication, which consists of five mindful tools - Listen, Explore, Question, Release, and Balance - all of which are grounded in Buddhist principles. This audiobook will show you how to: Identify your negative self-talk and explore the underlying self-judgments that produce it Release the judgments that are poisoning your self-communication Practice a system of balanced internal communication based on truth and compassion When we speak to ourselves negatively, we set a tone for our day and our interactions with others in the world. Talk to Yourself Like a Buddhist can teach you how to turn off the enemy in your mind - and create a new relationship with yourself and the world around you - simply by noticing, investigating, and changing the words you use to speak to yourself.

If you're wondering how to stop the desire to constantly eat junk food. If you want to know if Intuitive eating will help you eat better, and recover your target weight, and physical energy, keep reading. Intuitive eating is also known as mindful eating, which incorporates mindful meditation and the act of being instead of doing. Being in the moment is a state of mind where you are present and aware of your feelings, thoughts, and surroundings. Its letting go of all the stress, worries, and restrictions we are bombarded with in daily life. This is a practice you may be familiar with if you practice yoga and meditation. In this practice, we become more aware of how our bodies feel and react to different poses and postures. Scanning is a way to observe and note any sensations or areas in our body that we wish to pay more attention to or nurture more: This may be a stretched muscle or an injury that we want to heal. Through this process that takes us within, into our minds to explore ourselves, becoming more self-aware so that we can make better decisions in our daily lives that are best for us. The principles of mindful meditation are similar to how you approach intuitive eating, taking that moment to listen and observe your own bodys needs and feelings, as part of deciding how and when to eat. As you indulge in a meal, youll notice how your body and emotions react, by enjoying the taste, the sensation of satisfying your hunger and the emotions associated with eating. The goal is to allow your body and mind guide you through those decisions, without guilt or haste, so that you get the best out of every meal. After a lifetime of being told what to eat, what not to eat, and when to eat, we are so adapted to the restriction that it may seem impossible to adjust our thinking to a more intuitive concept. When we connect with our body, mind, food, and nature around us, we tune into our bodys responses and change more acutely. This will happen internally, as we experience certain sensations and feelings when we eat certain foods and experiences. Well achieve more control over how we feel, and with a more balanced approach to food, there will be less fluctuation with weight changes (loss or gain) and better health as a result. As your weight stabilizes, youll feel less likely to binge eat or jump on a new diet with an extreme way of eating. With this new balanced approach to eating, your relationship with food will improve and become less antagonistic. It will be less about what you cannot have and more about simply enjoying what you eat and feeling less anxious overall. The level of anxiety we experience when trying to follow a diet wreaks havoc on our mind and body, keeping us in a perpetual state of stress and categorizing our way of eating and exercise with a limited view of complete wellness. This guide will focus on the following: Intuitive Eating and Mindful Eating Benefits of Mindful Eating The Side-effect of Mindless Eating Difference between Emotional and Physical Hunger The Cycle of Emotional Eating What are the Ramifications of Emotional Eating? How to Succeed at Intuitive Eating and Avoid Common Mistakes And more! Intuitive eating is a powerful antidote to the nonstop diet messages out there, and this complete guide is everything you need to heal your relationship with food and yourself. Its amazing to see the transformation as people move from food fear to food freedom.

Learn about the opinions of Dinesh D'Souza regarding the legacy and future of America in a fraction of the time it takes to listen to the actual book! In chapter one, Dinesh D'Souza outlines the basic contention of his book which is that America is committing suicide, not by inadvertence or neglect, but by deliberate policy. The villains who have conspired to make national suicide a policy are progressives of whom Barack Obama is the most powerful spokesman and executive. The progressives, who, according to D'Souza, are engineering America's destruction, believe that doing so is the pathway to a better world. The basic progressive argument for that is that America's power and wealth have been built on slavery and theft. The argument asserts that the early settlers stole the land from Native Americans and later from France and Mexico. They enslaved Africans to work it. American capitalism is institutionalized theft because it deprives the workers of a fair share of the profits. America's foreign policy is based on theft of resources. (It is in the Middle East to steal the oil.) Justice and a better world all around demand guilt and atonement: restoration and reparations for that theft and a complete change in behavior. Extreme progressives hope for America to cease to exist. More moderate progressives, of whom Obama is one, envision America's reconstruction in a better form. Here is a preview of what you'll learn when you download your copy today: General overview and summary of America: Imagine a World without Her How America is considered the land of freedom by different groups The reason why America is believed to be losing ground to China Learn how to build a better America by understanding popular opinions

In the tradition of A Year in Provence, Lin Pardey - renowned for her sailing narratives - takes you on a voyage of the heart, sharing her and her husband Larry's remarkable tale of homesteading with equal parts candor and humor. Internationally known for their sailing adventures, in 1980 - fresh from an 11-year journey where they forged the early years of their marriage on high seas and in exotic locales - Lin and Larry Pardey came to California looking for a good spot to build a boat, test Lin's skills as a writer, and taste the apparent security life ashore could offer. Nestled in a rocky outcropping of sparsely populated dirt roads 60 miles from the sea and 50 miles from Los Angeles, Bull Canyon would seem an unlikely place for boat-building. Yet when Lin and Larry set eyes on the abandoned stone cottage at the top of a rutted dusty lane, it was love at first sight. The house was certainly a fixer-upper, but there was plenty of room to build the boat which would become their soon-to-be-famed Lyle Hess designed cutter Taleisin. This remarkable book tells the tale charmingly and engagingly - as only Lin Pardey can.

Today, its not just people suffering from health disorders who pursue the keto approach, but even healthy people with diet concerns also make use of this diet. The most challenging aspect of this diet plan is desiring baked goods and desserts while restricting carb intake. We all know that all desserts and baked goods are composed of sugars, flours, and other high-carb ingredients. In order to enjoy those same flavors, we need keto-friendly substitutes. This audiobook not only provides an all-inclusive guide to find such substitutes but also brings you the best recipes to make good use of in everyday life. Keto bread is great. It's a fact. However, from what Ive seen, its not much of a big deal in the keto industry now.

With our keto-friendly bread recipes, each one of them is made up of less than 10 grams of carbs, ensuring that you stay in ketosis. Keto bread can be enjoyed with a huge variety of toppings and used as a side dish and even as an appetite-suppressing snack!

Are you looking for a cookbook with dozens of delicious dishes that at the same time allow you to keep your body weight under control? A ketogenic diet is distinctive from all the other health-oriented diets for several reasons. Firstly, it fully restricts the consumption of carbohydrates in the diet. It points out carbs as enemies of good health and active metabolism. Not only it restricts the intake but also set a standard formula to limit the number of carbohydrates taken per meal. The diet is not only restrictive in essence, but also suggestive. It promotes the use of good quality fats in food products. If it restricts carbs for one reason, it provides a rather healthy alternative. The ketogenic diet works progressively to reveal its results and effects on human health. It does not restrict the overall consumption of food and its amount per meal, but it focuses on the prohibition of certain macronutrients like carbohydrates. It guarantees not only physical fitness but also an improved mental condition. Ketogenic diet prescribes several alternatives to high-carb food. Due to excess research in this field and increased demand, the food industry has been able to produce keto friendly products. Ingredients for keto foods are easy to find, they are only five or less, and the recipes are easy to make. You don't have to stress yourself any longer, all in the name of losing weight. The awesome part of all these is that keto friendly diets are tasteful to the taste buds. You don't have to sacrifice your love for sweet things on the altar of eating healthily.

Have you decided to start a healthier lifestyle but the call of junk food is stronger than your good intentions? Do you keep looking in the mirror and see a body you don't want to have? Let's be honest, who of us, at least once in a lifetime, has never been fascinated by a warm sandwich with meat, cheese and tasty sauces? And who, after having eaten it, looked in the mirror and didn't feel guilty for having done so? Today's society is bombarding us with junk food made from meat, protein and fats of animal origin, and you can't imagine how dangerous this could be for you. What they want to keep hidden, but which has now been amply demonstrated by important studies, is that omnivorous food is harmful to humans. Instead, in veganism, any form of food that is obtained from an animal, including their flesh or their milk, or a non-plant living thing, is off-limits. Veganism has closely been tied to human health, and it's a large part of why people are going vegan. The ethical boundaries around eating other living beings are a sore point for most other vegans, but the health benefits are not to be overlooked. In this book, I will introduce you to what you can't find anywhere else. With a simple, critical, and comprehensive approach, you will fully understand the great benefits you can have in terms of personal well-being and weight loss by gradually adopting a vegan diet. Here are some of the chapters covered in this guide: What is keto diet and how does it work? The health benefits of following keto diet. What is veganism and the benefits of following it. How is it like combining keto and vegan diets. The foods to eat and those to avoid. Best vegan keto supplements. Weight loss and keto lifestyle. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle while on keto vegan diet. And so much more... The opportunity you have to start losing weight right away with a keto-vegan diet is truly amazing, so much so that this type of diet is now widely regarded by nutritionists as "the new era of nutrition".

A tale of adventures, as Lin and Larry Pardey continue their voyaging on board their self-built 24'4" cutter. They cross the exotic sea that spawned Homer's tales of Ulysses' Odyssey, then sail through the strife torn Red Sea and across the typhoon tossed waters of the Bay of Bengal. In this book, fourth of the Seraffyn series, the Pardeys have reached a turning point in their lives - halfway around the world, eight years into a meandering voyage. Their routes had always been determined by the need to find the work to support their cruising life-style or the desire to see an island spoken of by some favorite writer. Now they have to decide whether to continue eastward, or turn back westward and complete the circle with a return to the place they once called home.

Wouldn't it be nice to chat with anybody without having to come up with things to say? One of the nicest ladies I ever met was a school teacher. I was chatting with her on a film set once because we were using her daughter in a commercial. This lady was (and I repeat) one of the nicest people I have ever met. I think we chatted for about 30 minutes and then I never saw her again. Thirty minutes. I seriously thought that I could trust this lady with all my deepest darkest secrets. That I could call her up one day and ask her to go for coffee and shed say yes. How could this lady make such an impression on me in such a short amount of time? Well, she had mastered the two keys you need to be a perfect small talker. These two things are revealed in my book and once you know them, everything gets so much easier. My name is Lana and I am a relationship and self-care blogger. Before I started a blog, I was a seriously introverted university student trying to get through film school without having to small-talk with my classmates at lunch. Little did I know back then, the film industry is all about networking and creating relationships with people you barely know. Once I started actually working in film, I was forced into learning how to small talk and how to get along with people. I was able to do this by observing others and stealing their techniques. People like that lovely high school teacher became my role models, I needed to do what they were doing. After years of observation, I realized that all master small-talkers have a few things in common but the biggest things are the two keys that were shown to me so elegantly by that school teacher. Once I had mastered those, no small talk conversation was a nightmare anymore. In fact, I started to enjoy them. My book will show you: The two keys you need to master small talk, and neither of them involve conversation starters How to shift your perspective on small talk so that it takes the pressure off The reason why small talk is not about entertaining others but is actually for you The difference between a good conversation starter and a bad one Small talk for people with social anxiety Small talk for introverts Small talk for dating, making friends, and networking How to improve your self esteem How to help in building confidence How to never fear the dreaded small talk conversation ever again!

"Even though women were not supposed to be on the front lines, on the front lines we were. Women were not supposed to be interned either, but it happened to us. People should know what we endured. People should know what we can endure." Lt. Col. Madeline Ullom. More than 100 US Army and Navy nurses were stationed in Guam and the Philippines at the beginning of World War II. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, five navy nurses on Guam became the first American military women of World War II to be taken prisoner by the Japanese. More than 70 army nurses survived five months of combat conditions in the jungles of Bataan and Corregidor before being captured, only to endure more than three years in prison camps. When freedom came, the US military ordered the nurses to sign agreements with the government not to discuss their horrific experiences. Evelyn Monahan and Rosemary Neidel-Greenlee have conducted numerous interviews with survivors and scoured archives for letters, diaries, and journals to uncover the heroism and sacrifices of these brave women. The book is published by University Press of Kentucky.

The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right | Summary Book Preview: Over nine chapters, Gawande makes a detailed and persuasive argument for the use of checklists, not only in surgery, but also in other fields where their use is not as widespread, such as aviation and construction, which have made checklists mandatory. As a consequence of his interest in implementing checklists during surgery, the World Health Organization put Gawande in charge of a team which investigated a trial of surgical checklists over eight countries. This trial showed to most people their great worth, to the extent that over 2,000 hospitals globally, including 10% of US hospitals, have introduced them. This is a summary and analysis of the book, and not the original book This book contains: Summary of the entire book Chapter-by-chapter breakdown Analysis of the listening experience

The New Rich: Get rich without working yourself to death The secrets of earning and accumulating money big time while enjoying the world with family! You can be rich, a millionaire, depending on how you handle things. But even without the millions and billions (maybe that's too far off for you, although you're going to get there), your life will never be the same if you earn, say, $50,000 or $100,000 or even more a month. That's enough money to let you have all the fun, family time, and feasts anytime, anywhere. Unfortunately, not many are doing as well as others - people who believed and acted upon their convictions. You will realize that a simple mind shift could spell the difference. And that's the way to start for you to get rich. Say goodbye to a life of uncertainty. Spend a few minutes perusing this material designed to help you fulfill your dreams, be the person you have always wanted, and start living a life of happiness. I will show secrets to having this life that you deserve. You have no idea how to start? Your problem is not lack of opportunities or lack of resources. The real culprit is your inability to know the how and the when, and taking the first step. If you're clueless, don't worry; I will walk you through this process of experiencing financial success. If you have already started making some strides, I will help you achieve even more. Listen on and see how you can make a difference in your life and be financially successful. The Pythagoreans, according to Dr. Isaac Watts, had a very sacred rule in life. It was their practice to evaluate all the day's activities or events before going to sleep. The evaluation was not done only once or twice but thrice. The reason, of course, is obvious - they wanted to ascertain how they fared in all their affairs, what was done wrong and what was accomplished right.

WASP of the Ferry Command is the story of the women ferry pilots who flew more than nine million miles in 72 different aircraft - 115,000 pilot hours - for the Ferrying Division, Air Transport Command, during World War II. In the spring of 1942, Col. William H. Tunner lacked sufficient male pilots to move vital trainer aircraft from the factory to the training fields. Nancy Love found 28 experienced women pilots who could do the job. They, along with graduates of the armys flight training school for women - established by Jacqueline Cochran - performed this duty until fall 1943, when manufacture of trainers ceased. In December 1943 the women ferry pilots went back to school to learn to fly high-performance WWII fighters, known as pursuits. By January 1944 they began delivering high -erformance P-51s, 47s, and 39s. Prior to D-day and beyond, P-51s were crucial to the air war over Germany. They had the range to escort B-17s and B-24s from England to Berlin and back on bombing raids that ultimately brought down the German Reich. Getting those pursuits to the docks in New Jersey for shipment abroad became these womens primary job. Ultimately, more than 100 WASP pursuit pilots were engaged in this vital movement of aircraft. The book is published by University of North Texas Press. The audiobook will be published by University Press Audiobooks. A compelling account of the unorthodox women who brilliantly helped sustain the vital flow of military aircraft around the country at the height of World War II. (Dorothy Cochrane, curator of the National Air and Space Museum) A thorough, well-researched record of the derring-do and grit of these women in trying wartime conditions. (History.net)
