Ned Beale and the Quest for El Dorado

            President Ulysses S. Grant had a limited understanding of, and minimal interest in, the complex, seemingly perpetual, turmoil that was the Balkans. He was more apt to fret over Indian "trouble" in the Black Hills than to waste energy trying to comprehend the Herzegovinian Rebellion or the diplomatic moves of The League of Three Emperors. It was part of his job, though. To get his head around it he needed someone who was bright, trustworthy and reliable to go to Europe, observe the mess first hand and then articulate in plain English an explanation of the situation that he could make sense of....

SORROWS , PAINS AND SMILES OF MY MOTHER

SORROWS , PAINS AND SMILES OF MY MOTHER   by Ivan Petryshyn“I will pray every day for you, till my eyes can see and I can breathe. You sleep at another place, but I love you, and my tears will be the moments of your life, and my memory will be your life in me. I will be dedicating to you all my actions, words, articles and poems”.There is very little I can express in words: God knows everything, all the reasons and the causes, all the actions and the depth of my love for her… who became a sparkling star of the Universe. I owe her so much that all the days that I will be living should be dedicated to her or in the name of her.I.

Buying A Miracle

THIS is a small story.When Annie was six, her mother gave birth to a boy.   Ever since the baby was brought home from the hospital, there wasn't a day without crying from the baby.

Instantly, the baby stopped crying  with teary eyes that kept staring at Annie.What was wrong with the baby ? Just then, Annie overheard her parents talking in the next room. Although..

Money Is Not All In Life, God Is All In All!

What place does money have in your life? Does it dictate your peace, joy and how you walk in love? God desires that you prosper but not at the expense of His relationship with you and the work He has for you. Money is not everything; it is God who is all in all.Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life (1 Timothy 6:17-19, NKJV).People do.

Elections ’16: Crazy Horse for President

“It is a good day to die” might become the battle cry of some American voters in the upcoming presidential campaign. Middle-class Americans have something in common with native indians’ plight of long ago. Crazy Horse might nod in approval. Perhaps in his own vengeful wit, swirling upon the prairie winds calling, ‘What goes around, one day comes back around.’ I was at the Duck Creek Cafe’ the other day and guess who I ran into, Martin Cross, long time governor of our state. In tow was my buddy presidential candidate Miss Josephine Calder visiting the old homestead before off again on the campaign trail. The Cafe’ was full like.

Do You Really Need an Editor for Your Novel or Non-Fiction Book?

You’ve probably read or heard that you should have your manuscript edited. Do you agree or disagree with that statement?I’ll get to the editing part in a moment. There’s something else to cover first. Something you really need to know, especially if you’re a novice author. You see, it’s the best of times and the worst of times for authors, especially first-timers. The worst is that the traditional publishing industry has been topsy-turvy for a while, and it’s going to be that way until the dust settles, however long that may take and whatever form it takes. It’s the best of times because self-publishing is available for anyone, and, agents...
