A Great Cookbook. Thoughts to Live By, and Two Great Traveler's Adventures

To purchase any of the books, click on the at the end of the book description. You'll be taken to Amazon.com with the book highlighted. Simply click on the, "Add to cart" button and then proceed to, "Check-out". You can use your AMAZON account if you have one or if you don't, you'll be able to create one.

Even if you don't know how to boil water and really don't care, you'll still read the book cover to cover just for the clever humor and who knows, maybe you'll end up becoming a good cook as well. "Honest John" was known as a great, great cook - always trying new and exciting recipes, as well as inventing his own. Give that man a scotch, show him the kitchen and magic would happen.

One year at Christmas, I decided I wanted to write down thoughts that were important to me to give to my four wonderful children, Jim, Mike, Andy and Kelly. They are the light of my life and I thought if I could teach them anything that might help them in their life, if it could help them in just a little way, it would make me happy. I'm hoping that it might help you also.

Travels in Italy and France - but don't look for museums and churches This is more about food, drink and "speriences"! A down home look at Italy and France.

A trip to Bogata, Columbia and finding a great country with fabulous people in it, as well as finding out why it's no wonder why they're all so slim - do they ever eat? Great, great time!
