As a movie actress Lucille Ball was, in her own words, “queen of the B-pluses.” But on the small screen she was a superstar–arguably the funniest and most enduring in the history of TV. In this exemplary biography, Stefan Kanfer explores the roots of Lucy’s genius and places it in the context of her conflicted and sometimes bitter personal life. Ball of Fire gives us Lucy in all her contradictions. Here is the beauty who became a master of knock-down slapstick; the control freak whose comic alter ego thrived on chaos, the worshipful TV housewife whose real marriage ended in public disaster. Here, too, is an intimate view of the dawn of television and of the America that embraced it. Charming, informative, touching. and laugh-out-loud funny, this is the book Lucy’s fans have been waiting for.

When my two girls were little and we would go to bed at night I would read books that I bought to them. Then I would tell them my story. This went on a while, then soon when I would start to read the books I had bought to them they would say, Daddy! We want to hear your story, not the one out of the book. I said Oh! I had stories of my own, and that was the ones they wanted to hear. I told them numbers of times to them. And they wanted to here them over and over and I told them over and over. Until they got big and one day my girls said Dad, why don't you put your books in writing? So boys and girls get to hear them. So here they are, first The Millpond Bridge and the Ball of Fire. This story was wrote about a very bad man who drank whiskey and smoked and he would never buy his kids hardly nothing, and it is also about me helping my family make it when times was hard and believe me they were. I believe this book will help every boy and girl out there live a good clean life. God bless them all.

John Montague, best known as a poet, is also a gifted prose writer.A Ball of Firecollects all of his short stories, together with the erotic novellaThe Lost Notebook(which he hoped to have banned, but which ended up winning a major literary prize).In the shorter stories, fromThe Road Ahead, which comments poignantly on the loss of established landmarks, to the title story, in which a series of chance encounters helps unlock a painter s creativity, he casts a cool yet sympathetic eye over his environment, both in Ireland and farther afield.The longer works -The Lost Notebooks(about the incendiary relationship between a troubled American girl and a young Irish man in Florence),Death of a Chieftain(a daringly ambitious story set in Mexico) andThe Three Last Things(a moving meditation on love and death) - stand as pillars within the book.Montague's clear prose is shot through with hard-won insights into his fellow human beings, and the various burdens, physical and emotional, under which they labour. And of course through it all runs the theme of the importance of love, in its many forms.

windup, and fired his first pitch. Fire he did! A trail of flame streaked behind the

The action heats up for Zeus and his fellow Olympians in this blazing Heroes in Training tale. Phew, it’s hot! Under the titan Hyperion’s rule, the sun is burning even brighter than normal and scorching everything in northern Greece—including the villagers! The Olympians are forced to play a sizzling “game” of Dodge the Sunbursts as Hyperion hurls giant fireballs that could fry them to pieces! Armed with some clues, Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades set out to figure out why in the world Hyperion has been making things so hot. They also need to rescue Hera, who is still missing. Battling the extreme heat—and some fantastical and scary creatures, courtesy of their old foe Cronus—the boys are off on another epic adventure…and Zeus is one step closer to discovering his destiny.

The monotheistic religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam have severely limited the portrayal of the divine as feminine. But in Hinduism "God" very often means "Goddess." This extraordinary collection explores twelve different Hindu goddesses, all of whom are in some way related to Devi, the Great Goddess. They range from the liquid goddess-energy of the River Ganges to the possessing, entrancing heat of Bhagavati and Seranvali. They are local, like Vindhyavasini, and global, like Kali; ancient, like Saranyu, and modern, like "Mother India." The collection combines analysis of texts with intensive fieldwork, allowing the reader to see how goddesses are worshiped in everyday life. In these compelling essays, the divine feminine in Hinduism is revealed as never before--fascinating, contradictory, powerful.

Oh, one more thing. Admiral Sam wants to know, if you need back-up. Great! The more, the merrier. A minute later, Sam appeared next to Debbie, clad in his long cloak and wide brimmed hat and asked, When does the fun, begin? Debbie instantly snapped to attention and saluted. Hold on there, cadet. Dont go military, on me. Relax, were in the field. Calistus explained, We have to stop, about two dozen men and two gun boats, before sunup. Su should be sending a large tank of flammable solvent, through a portal, any moment now. But, I havent seen any guards as of yet. A horizontal portal opened twenty, feet above the water and a large metal tank slipped through unnoticed, and hovered just above the water to close to their position. Calistus sighed and said, I cant ignite it there, itll fry us all. I'm on it, whispered Debbie, eager to show off, for the admiral. As she dove in the water and pushed the container into position. Just then, a pirate poked his head out of one of the gun ships, spotted something moving and hollered, Whos there? And began to fire at the tank of flammable solvent, igniting it into a ball of fire. That swiftly spread over the water turning, the inlet into a river of fire. Debbie quickly dove underwater, to avoid getting hit. But she was struck in the side, before she could react. She struggled desperately to stay afloat, and managed to make it to shore, where she collapsed. Calistus hollered, Sam, lets try and get them in a crossfire! In minutes, the camp was swarming with pirates, firing at anything that moved. After a ten-minute gun battle, the pirates strapped Debbies limp body, to a tree and the leader hollered, Drop your weapons and surrender, or the woman dies! Sam, theyve got Debbie! Hold your fire! The two men approached the pirates, with their hands and guns over their heads, Sam whispered, Protective shields on, weapons on stun, once we reach Debbie, we position ourselves in front of her, to protect her, then, we let 'em have it. As they reached Debbie, the men quickly spun around, Calistus hollered, as he leveled his rifle at the pirates, I think its you, who should surrender! Laughter suddenly broke out, amongst the crowd, mocking Calistuss bold statement. Sam shouted, Fire! Blasts of energy streaked through the night rapidly finding their marks as bullets ricocheted off their shields. Once silence reined, Calistus glanced at Sam and inquired, What's wrong? I was hoping for a knockdown, drag out, gun fight. Instead, all we got, was a bunch of wimps! Whatever, Sam. Why dont you round them up, before they come to, while I take care of Debbie. Carefully untying her and lying her on the ground, Calistus contacted Moon Base One, Su, I need you here and fast, cadet Debbies been injured. Seconds later, Su appeared, then, hollered, as she dove for the ground, firing her pistol Look out! A blast of energy struck the would-be assassin, liquefying his body into a yellow-brown ooze, which swiftly seeped into the sand. Su quickly returned, with Debbie. Sam bellowed A little help, here, if you dont mind! Having the prisoners tied up, Sam surveyed the pirates and commented What a motley crew they are. Do you think well get any information, out of 'em, Cal? Nope! None of them, look like, they have the brains to come up with a strategy, as complex as this. Deb did mention about Norm, who tried to waste her. Hes probably their contact. How are we going to locate one person, in this jungle? questioned a frustrated Sam. Sam, youre slipping in your old age. Deb mentioned that she was washed up on the beach after the ship was destroyed. That should be on the other side of the island. Calistus contacted Su and inquired, Can you contact the nearest coast guard, and inform them about the bunch of pirates, we have tied up. Then, see if you can bounce a signal off one of Earths satelli

Our solar system would fall apart without the sun. Its gravity is what keeps planets and other celestial bodies moving in orbit. The sun also plays a big role in Earth's weather, climate, and seasons. We wouldn't know of this if we hadn't spent a lot of time over hundreds of years studying the sun. Your young explorers will head to the yellow dwarf star that is our sun with satellites, probes, and through high-powered telescopes. They'll discover what the amazing information missions to and around the sun have taught NASA and space scientists around the world.
