In Council Bluffs, Iowa she was a beloved, talented quarter horse. But when Cotton Candy Sally arrived in New York City, they started calling her a nasty, sour nag. The girls at Bernadette's riding school were afraid of her, and after bucking off her riders right onto the pavement, Sally started spending more and more time alone, with her head tethered to her stall. Couldn't anyone find a way to tame her? Twelve-year-old Kara fell in love with Sally and was determined to fix things. But her father had recently died, and her mother had no money to buy the spirited mare. Worse yet, Bernadette started talking about sending her "down the road" because she wasn't earning her keep. Where would she end up and what would happen to Kara, who finally found a way to be happy in the wake of her father's death? "Belove's attention to detail...is superb" -- Kirkus Reviews
Do you want to start a new hobby and save some money in the process? Have you ever considered creating your own homemade laundry detergent? Have you ever wondered why your grocery bills are always going higher every year, despite you cutting down on the products that you buy? Do you know that the laundry detergents and the soaps that you buy are increasing your monthly grocery bills like anything? In this day and age, it is all about saving money in whichever way it is possible. Saving just a few tens of dollars every year can turn out to be a huge saving after a few years. Some of the most expensive grocery items are laundry detergents and soaps. It is not just expensive, but most of the laundry detergents that are available in the market are made using harsh chemicals which will not just damage and spoil the clothes but might also irritate your skin. If you are worried and horrified seeing this amount of money that you spend every month on your laundry detergents, then you can easily get rid of this problem by preparing your own homemade laundry detergents. The biggest advantage about preparing home based laundry detergents is that they will just cost you in pennies and you will finally save a lot of dollars on your yearly grocery bills. Also, the homemade laundry detergents are natural with no added harsh chemicals and hence they are clothes friendly.
This is a simple, easy-to-read guide designed for first-time homebuyers (but anyone's welcome to it). This guide is written from the mortgage angle, as this is generally the most complicated and overwhelming aspect of purchasing a home. There is so much information out there, this guide takes the insanity out of financing a home, and puts everything in understandable terms. Revised in late 2013 because of ever-changing lending rules and regulations.
Yoga is so popular. And everyone claims to know what "real" yoga is? Religion? Exercise? Business? Spirituality? How do we navigate the tensions between yoga and consumerism? As yogis we want to let go of attachments, as consumers we want hot designer exercise clothing. But these things are not as contradictory as they seem. Buying Dharma is about the way modern postural yoga helps us live with the contradictions between our rhetoric and our actions. Jordan Shapiro takes a look at Yoga from a depth psychological perspective. He offers a brutally honest and sometimes funny account of yoga in the United States. Ultimately he concludes that yoga's contradictions are what make it such an effective spiritual practice for the 21st century.
