Now we've lived together in contentment, more or less, for nigh on twenty year. Like turtle doves. - In prison, I mean, for fuck's sake, the chances of that. PJ and Christy: sworn enemies destined to share one small room for twenty years. As the two men recall the joys and torments of life outside - the childhood excursions, a deadly brawl, past loves and summer dresses - slowly they uncover the tragic events that have lead them to their cell in Montjoy. A play that explores our capacity to commit the deadliest of crimes but also our capacity for survival, reconciliation and love, ON BLUEBERRY HILL by Sebastian Barry (twice winner of the Costa Book of the Year) premiered in a Fishamble production at the Pavilion Theatre as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival and at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris in October 2017.

It’s peak tourist season in Oriole Point, Michigan—the blueberry buckle of the fruit belt. Nothing draws the crowds quite like their annual carnival. And nothing turns it sour faster than murder . . . The Blueberry Blow Out festival has begun and it’s time for Marlee Jacob, owner of The Berry Basket, to shine. Unfortunately it’s also bringing out the worst in her fiancé Ryan Zeller. Ryan’s rivalry with Porter Gale, owner of Blueberry Hill Farm, spills over into a very public and very ugly fight. And after they compete in the pie-eating contest and a raucous tug of war, their orchard blood feud takes a deadly turn . . . The death of the king of Blueberry Hill is a shock but not too surprising—he was a diabetic whose last pig out meal was deliciously fatal. But when authorities discover that someone tampered with Porter’s insulin, a tragic accident is looking like murder—and Ryan is the key ingredient. Now Marlee’s investigation to clear his name is taking her deep into the Gale family secrets, and she’s being shadowed every step of the way by a killer whose sweet revenge is just beginning . . . Includes Berry Recipes!

"A truly inspiring story, in gorgeous prose, about one family's journey into blueberry farming. Delicious reading." —Naomi Wolf, author of The End of America The Blueberry Years is a mouth-watering and delightful memoir based on Jim Minick's trials and tribulations as an organic blueberry farmer. This story of one couple and one farm shows how our country's appetite for cheap food affects how that food is grown, who does or does not grow it, and what happens to the land. But this memoir also calls attention to the fragile nature of our global food system and our nation's ambivalence about what we eat and where it comes from. Readers of Michael Polland and Barbara Kingsolver will savor the tale of Jim's farm and the exploration of larger issues facing agriculture in the United States—like the rise of organic farming, the plight of small farmers, and the loneliness common in rural America. Ultimately, The Blueberry Years tells the story of a place shaped by a young couple's dream, and how that dream ripened into one of the mid-Atlantic's first certified-organic, pick-your-own blueberry farms.

Am 20. September 1946 druckt eine New-Yorker Zeitschrift Albert Einsteins Satz: »Während wir Russlands Geheimnissen und die Russen unseren Geheimnissen misstrauen, gehen wir zusammen dem Untergang entgegen.« Am 1. September 1983 schießt Major Wassilij Kasmin nachts über der Insel Sachalin einen Jumbo der südkoreanischen Fluglinie KAL ab. Die sowjetische Luftabwehr glaubt, ein amerikanisches Spionageflugzeug dringe bei ihr ein, doch Unbeteiligte finden den Tod. Vorgriff auf die Katastrophe eines Krieges aus Versehen? Ein doppeltes Rätsel zumindest: Irrtum der einen und mysteriöser Irrflug der anderen Seite! Wolfgang Schreyer spürt den Ursachen nach, er schildert auch Folgen, sieht die Schockwirkung des Falls auf Menschen in Kalifornien und anderswo. Dazu hat er die Schauplätze des Romans besucht; man schmeckt das Fluidum von Los Angeles, San Francisco und Las Vegas, die Luft von Florida oder New York, hört das Knistern im Cockpit einer Boeing 747 nahe dem Polarkreis. Wie ein Film rollt die Handlung ab, dramatisch, grandios, bis zum bitteren Ende. Dem Autor geht es nicht um Schuldzuweisung, sondern um Erkenntnis: um Einsicht in Psycho-Mechanismen, Denkweisen und jene harten Fakten, die es uns erschweren, eine Welt ohne Kernwaffen, ja dermaleinst ohne Militär zu schaffen. »Unter dem Zwang, Gewinn zu machen«, sagt US-Präsident Eisenhower 1959 voraus, »werden mächtige Lobbys auftreten und immer größere Rüstungsausgaben fordern; das Netz der Sonderinteressen wächst von Tag zu Tag.« Der Roman zeigt auch das. Ein Konzern der US-Rüstungsindustrie ringt ums Überleben. Schreyer führt den Titanenkampf vor, den Griff nach der Macht und das menschliche Streben nach Glück, Geld, Liebe, Karriere - in der Verkettung von allem mit jedem. Der spannende Roman erschien erstmals 1989 im Mitteldeutschen Verlag Halle – Leipzig.

Frank Gahler, der von allen, wahrscheinlich der Berliner Maulfäule wegen, seit frühester Kindheit immer nur GALA genannt wird, stand genau genommen schon mit 5 Jahren auf den Brettern, die seine Welt werden sollten. Immer hat unser Singezahn im Chor gesunden und mit 8 sogar - auf Anraten umnebelter Musikpädagogen- Geige zu lernen angefangen – GEIGE! Na das Ding flog sehr schnell in die Ecke! Dann kam die Gitarre – jaaa, dis war schon besser. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, irische Folklore (!), Folkrock, Lindenberg, Pink Floyd und vor allem Led Zeppelin bildeten den Soundtrack für all die Bilder, die im Kopf eines aufmüpfigen Jungmenschen herumschwirren. Eines Tages klaute er seinem Freund Peter eine Hohner Blues Harp – naja, und als er anfing dieses kleine Instrument zu beherrschen ließ ihn der Blues nicht mehr los. 1976 gründete er mit Freunden MONOKEL. Diese Band sollte nun nach sehr kurzer Zeit zu einem derartigen Underground Publikumsmagneten werden, dass auf der einen Seite die Staatsmacht Angst demonstrierte und auf der anderen Seite der Grundstein zu einem legendären Ruf gelegt wurde. Völkerwanderungsähnliche Zustände begleiteten diese Band und MONOKEL Veranstaltungen gerieten zu schwer kontrollierbaren Happenings größten Ausmaßes. GALA nahm 1982 das Angebot von Georgi Gogow und Gisbert Piatkowski (City) an, um ne gemeinsame Band zu gründen – „NO 55“. Feine Sache das! Tourneen durch ganz Europa (Ost und West), TV Präsenz dass sich die Balken bogen und mehrere Plattenproduktionen vermittelten den Eindruck größten Erfolgs. In dieser Zeit entwickelte GALA ein unnachahmliches Gespür für Kompositionen und Texte, dass ihm das Leben nicht immer leichtmacht. Leider gab es zwischen GALA und dem Bandmanagement zu viele politisch unterschiedliche Auffassungen, so dass es eines Tages knallte und Gala ausstieg. In dieser Größenordnung kann man allerdings nicht einfach aussteigen. Man sollte einen anderen Beruf ergreifen oder das Land verlassen. Zur Umschulung hatte GALA keine Lust. Umsiedlung nach Westberlin! Zum Glück zerbröselte kurz danach die Mauer, der Grund fürs Fortgehen war dahin, GALA ging wieder in den Osten. Nachdem nun zwischenzeitlich ein Soloprojekt mit der Stuttgarter Firma Intercort um den Produzenten Mick Jackson eher mäßigen Erfolg zeigte, stieß Gala wieder zu MONOKEL. „Wir saufen wieder zusammen, also könn wa ooch wieder zusammen musizieren.“ Seit 2011 wieder auf Tour mit seinem eigenen Projekt „GALAS TOUR(ette)“.

Winding north through Pittsford, Otter Creek has powered the lumber, grain, and marble mills essential to this region since 1770. Chittenden lies east of Pittsford, on the west flank of the Green Mountains, where iron and manganese deposits supplied Pittsford’s iron industry. To the south, Pittsford and Proctor share deep marble formations that support the economies of both towns. The first settlers were farmers drawn to the valley’s fertile soil and mountain forests. They were joined by lumber barons, lawyers, merchants, and artists. European and French Canadian immigrants soon followed and farmed, built the railroad, or quarried and carved marble. Closely linked by the industries that helped build them, these communities have evolved into today’s thriving hometowns of workers in Rutland.

The federal government wastes your tax dollars worse than a drunken sailor on shore leave. The 1984 Grace Commission uncovered that the Department of Defense spent $640 for a toilet seat and $436 for a hammer. Twenty years later things weren't much better. In 2004, Congress spent a record-breaking $22.9 billion dollars of your money on 10,656 of their pork-barrel projects. The war on terror has a lot to do with the record $413 billion in deficit spending, but it's also the result of pork over the last 18 years the likes of: - $50 million for an indoor rain forest in Iowa - $102 million to study screwworms which were long ago eradicated from American soil - $273,000 to combat goth culture in Missouri - $2.2 million to renovate the North Pole (Lucky for Santa!) - $50,000 for a tattoo removal program in California - $1 million for ornamental fish research Funny in some instances and jaw-droppingly stupid and wasteful in others, The Pig Book proves one thing about Capitol Hill: pork is king!

A revealing account of Led Zepplin's 1975 North American tour including all- new interviews with-and insider information about-the band, from the bestselling author of Hammer of the Gods. As a young music journalist in 1975, Stephen Davis got the opportunity of a lifetime: an invitation to cover the sold-out 1975 North American tour of Led Zeppelin, the biggest and most secretive rock band in the world, for a national magazine. He received a backstage pass, was granted interviews with band members, and even got a prized seat on the band's luxurious tour jet, The Starship. While on duty, he chronicled the Zeppelin tour in three notebooks, but after writing his article in 1975 he misplaced them. After three decades of searching, in 2005 he finally found the notebooks, on the covers of which he had scribbled the words "LZ-'75," and unearthed an amazing amount of new information from the tour including: • Lost interviews with canny vocalist Robert Plant and the brilliant guitarist Jimmy Page • Information on the rock icon who moonlighted as a heroin dealer • Revelations about the identity of the lover about whom Robert Plant sings in "What Is and What Should Never Be" and "Black Country Woman" • A detailed chronicle of each performance from a musical perspective, and a vivid account of the band members' extravagant, and often troubled, lives on tour Tied together by Davis's entertaining narrative, and including more than forty never-before-published photographs, LZ-'75 is an unprecedented and comprehensive personal portrait of the greatest (and most notoriously press-shy) rock band in history at its apex.
