North of Hollywood: An Actor’s Stumbling Baby Steps Toward Kindness and Peace

by Rick Lenz

Dysfunction, addiction, courage and hope: A Hollywood story with a happy ending

The hardest part of a glamorous life, of any life, is to find your feet and stay standing.

North of Hollywood dips under the surface of showbiz and the usual celebrity encounters to unreel the story of a dysfunctional young actor who becomes successful beyond his wildest dreams.

When Rick Lenz is plucked out of Broadway as the only member of the original cast of “Cactus Flower” to star in its film version, he finds himself opposite gilded screen names like Ingrid Bergman, Walter Matthau and Goldie Hawn. The film’s smashing success finds a new star in Lenz and leads him to a smorgasbord of television and film roles acting opposite Peter Sellers, Jackie Gleason, John Wayne, and many more.

Somewhere within this bewildering sweep of success, Lenz’s life flies apart. His third child is born. His second marriage ends. He makes a handful of lunatic career decisions and he finds himself standing alone and naked on the stage of a tiny theater. At that moment, Lenz’s life has dropped out of frame into a helpless freefall.

Written with piercing honesty, North of Hollywood unwinds as a psychological cliffhanger, but between the tragedy and comedy the reel dips even deeper into a love story. When Lenz discovers astonishing courage and compassion in a woman named Linda, he begins to find the strength to face his life’s biggest plot twists yet: the fallout of his personal and professional fiascoes, his sister’s battle with cancer, and his daughter’s life-and-death struggle with addiction.

As one critic puts it, “If you want to believe happy endings are possible in real life, even when real life is show business, take a look at North of Hollywood.”

See why this touching, bittersweet remembrance resonates with readers and critics.

A time-travel noir that slips between the shimmering worlds of modern and mid-century Los Angeles.

Vegetable Gardening Design: A Step-by-step Guide How to Plan a Vegetable Garden

by Lorena Slater

Vegetable Gardening Design – A Step-by-step Guide How to Plan a Vegetable Garden

Here is a preview:
When it comes to growing your own food, it pays to plan ahead of time about how you want to set up your own garden. Poor planning can result in poor plant growth, and you may end up with no vegetables at all, or at the very most, stunted, tasteless food. Before you plant the first seed, there are several steps that you need to complete, and only by planning ahead can you make all parts of your garden work together to improve its overall vitality. Vegetable gardening design can make all the difference between a complete failure and a rousing success at harvest time.

From Blueprints to Growth
Vegetable gardening design encompasses everything from the size of the garden to how long it will take to pick the vegetables as they ripen. First, you need to decide about what size garden you are prepared to take care of, as this will decide how healthy the plants are when it finally comes time to pick them. A good rule of thumb is to grow a garden within the means of what you are willing to take care of as a smaller but well cared for garden is much more rewarding than a larger, neglected garden. As such, deciding the size of the garden is the first step of vegetable gardening design.

Organic Gardening for Beginners: What Should You Do if Youâ??re Beginner

by Lorena Slater

Organic Gardening for Beginners – What Should You Do if You’re Beginner

Here is a preview:
If you would like to extend the amount of time you spend on the planet Earth by at least 33%, start growing and eating your own organic food. By growing your own organic food you have ultimate control over what you are putting in to your own body. Pesticides that cause cancer are avoided when you eat what you grow organically.

What Is Organic Gardening? – For Beginners
When you garden organically, you only use materials from living things; synthetic fertilizers and pesticides are not used on your plants. Manure and compost, made from kitchen scraps and yard waste, are used as fertilizer for your garden.
Natural pesticides can be made and used to effectively prevent and treat weeds and pests. Organic gardening does require a little more time, but overall the results are worth it.

Organic Gardening For Beginners – Choose An Area For Your Garden
When choosing an area for your garden, you want to figure out the maximum sun areas on your property, and the areas most protected from the wind. You will also consider your water source location, since your plants are going to be watered every day.

The Gratitude Project: Making the Decision to be Grateful

by Christine Frame-Martin

The Gratitude Project: Making the Decision to be Grateful

YES, it IS a choice! In The Gratitude Project Christine Frame-Martin teaches us that each day we have a choice to be happy and grateful or not. She shows us through her own experiences what it means to practice daily gratitude and make it a life-long habit. While this book was being written Christine went through some interesting challenges, which are woven into the pages of this book. Through her stories, Christine shows us it is possible to choose gratitude even through the challenges. And beyond that she teaches us, by giving us lessons and tools, how to actually start adding gratitude into our own lives. Chapter by chapter she will teach the reader how to make positive changes in their life that will ultimately, the hope is, have ripple effects to change much more than just their life, but the lives of others.

This book will teach you how to implement gratitude in your life and show you what it can do for your life; as well as the life of those you love. By virtue of practicing kindness you will ultimately affect even the lives of strangers.
The Gratitude Project is for any of us that have wanted to be more positive, more grateful, more forgiving or kinder. If these are characteristics, that until now, seem to have eluded you, then this book is for you!

“Gratitude is simple and the way I feel about it is like thisâ?¦â?¦ if you don’t feel it at first express gratitude anyway! The feeling will follow. The emotions will come. And then the magic will happen! Just do it! ” ~ Christine Frame-Martin

After she began her research she came to realize there was a purpose to this desire she had to learn gratitude. The purpose was to share it with others. But first she had to experience it.
