Increasingly, many of you, my former readers—from Ticonderoga to Saratoga Springs, west into the Adirondacks and east into Vermont—have told me how much you enjoyed my columns thank you!

So, with that in mind, my daughter Julia and I are selecting a good number of Over My Shoulder columns to create a book of them. Julia is serving as my Editor and we plan to have it out by mid-autumn of this year. We need your help! There are more than Over My Shoulder columns! My Editor and I discussed grouping the columns by topic. Well, dear Editor had a brilliant suggestion: ask my readers! And so, I am. Could you help us decide on topics to print? Do you have a particular column or series of columns that you liked and want to see reprinted?

So, the topics were broad-ranging and never-ending. And no, I have not lived since the Revolutionary War. I wrote on histories of our towns and cities ; tourism; sports; famous, not-so-famous, and not-at-all-famous people; holiday memories; and more.

The earliest photographs date from with one of his first images of the lake and go through to the mids. The paper reproduces the look and feel of the albumen paper on which Stoddard printed his photographs. The book divides the lake into five regions, the final region ending where the waters of Lake George join Lake Champlain at Fort Ticonderoga.

Daniel Way. Richard C. He was born in Wilton, NY, in In , he began photographing professsionally, taking his earliest iamges in and around Glens Falls. He started photographing Lake George in Also by , Stoddard was writing very readable, humorous and popular guidebooks for Lake George and the Adirondacks, reminiscent in humor and pithiness to Mark Twain. Only two years later he was producing excellent maps for those regions.

Some were later adopted as official maps by the State of New York and became standards over the decades to come. The National Gallery of Art placed his photographic compositions on a parallel with those of Hudson River School painters. Stoddard was a household name by the s.

An ardent conservationist, he greatly influenced the New York State Legislature, with lantern slides of his Adirondack photographs, to create the Adirondack Park in While he went on to photograph throughout the United States, Europe and the Middle East, he repeatedly returned to Lake George, which he photographed until shortly before he died in Glens Falls in So there you have a brief introduction to S.

Daniel Way , Dr. The 20th Century American humorist Frank Sullivan is beginning to enjoy a much-deserved revival in the 21st Century! Even after we moved from Saratoga, my mother corresponded with Frank and stayed in touch with him until he died in For our family, then, simultaneously thinking of Frank Sullivan as both a dear friend and a great author was very easy. He was educated in Saratoga—meaning then that he not only attended schools there, but also worked at the track, where he received a liberal expansion of his scholarly education.

As a boy of 10 he worked as a pump boy in the betting ring at the race track. On one occasion he served a glass of water to Lillian Russell, the actress, who tipped him 50 cents and said to him:. He went on to Cornell University, graduated in , and then returned to the Spa City to write full time for The Saratogian. Drafted into the US Army in , he served as a Lieutenant. Very significantly, in he also began a long association with The New Yorker magazine, newly created by Harold Ross. Harold Ross, not coincidentally, was the founder and editor of The New Yorker.

For example, there was his dear friend and drinking companion Monty Wooley—Yale professor, Broadway producer and actor, and Hollywood movie star. And there were many more friends from every walk of life. That was the gift he had. In all things, Frank was a Saratogian at heart. In his newspaper, The World , went out of business and, deeply affected, Frank moved from New York City back to Saratoga Springs, where he bought his second and last house on Lincoln Avenue. I should note that there are differences among sources as to the date he returned to live full time in Saratoga Springs.

I chose the year that Alden Whitman had reported in his obituary of Frank. Of course, business dictated that Frank still went to Manhattan. But Frank deserves a full examination of his work, and a good biography of his life. For Frank Sullivan was a renowned writer who walked among, and had lunch with, the giants of his day.

Meanwhile, may I ask a favor? Yes, I am repeating myself! Please help us make this a smash hit! Here are the details:. Two performances: pm and pm. Mike Maino.

Pizza and wings to be served. Thank you! And please come to our show! American Pharoah. With this world-wide American Pharoah mania, all eyes are on Saratoga Springs—and on its infamous gambling history. Thanks, Heather! Heather Kovar. Travers, the first president of the then Saratoga Racing Association. The first Triple Crown was won in While twelve horses have won the Triple Crown, only one of them has ever won the Travers Stakes—Whirlaway in !

His trainer called him dumb, stupid and crazy. Arcaro rode Whirlaway to his Belmont victory for his Triple Crown victory. Whirlaway was now slated to run in the Travers on August 16, , when tragedy struck! The racing world was in a state of frenzy. Piping Rock Casino. In the Spa City, the casinos and other businesses were finally enjoying a financial revival after the Great Depression and this race was symbolic of that revival. What would happen now? Never mind that most of the world was already at war, with the US was aiding the beleaguered British in their fight against the Third Reich and the Empire of Japan.

And Pearl Harbor was days away. No, what was vital was the Travers! As the horses broke from gate, Whirlaway sprung to action—well, almost. Up to the mile post, before he made his move, he looked as if bound to make history repeat. As far out as the 16th pole the race was over; he was almost four lengths ahead at the finish, and Fairymant had two and a half on Lord Kitchener. Chicago sportsman who found there are more ways of raising dough than with the baking powder he manufactures. Wright was presented with the gold cup by Samuel D. Bull, president of the Saratoga Association.

And since that day 74 years ago no Triple Crown winner has ever won the Travers Stakes. In fact, Whirlaway is the only Triple Crown winner ever to have won the Travers! Damon Runyon. The Ox Factor. But, oh my, what a mere 20 months has done! And all of this has resulted in ever-increasing tensions between the US and China.

Just a few days ago, the Obama administration warned China about its covert agents operating in the US. So, to read The Ox Factor now is to believe that by China has surreptitiously wormed its way into the US military cyber systems. By America has placed its heaviest reliance upon those cyber systems and unmanned warfare, because of shrinking budgets.

And then China shuts both down. With that done, one million Chinese troops invade the US, totally surprising the US command structure and rapidly moving to seize not just western states, but Gulf States as well. Duvall has, to this lay reader, extensive knowledge of military weaponry and command structures, all controlled by a Chinese supercomputer. The action is fast, taking place over a six week period. It reminds me of several authors, Tom Clancy among them.

Blackmail and extortion have a juicy part to play in the plot. And American moles are present in the Chinese commend structure.


It would be understandable for someone reading this review to assume the scenario is far-fetched, but once this reader gave into to the fast paced action, a la Clancy, and ignored the occasional two-dimensional minor characters, the ride was a thriller. China threatens worse than a mere invasion if she does not publicly surrender. The character of President Rutledge is good. So she is at once hosting Family Feud and jockeying with the Department of Defense. These and other conflicts go on as subplots of and fuel for the drama.

Author Richard Duvall, who very sadly passed away as his book was coming out, provides us with many surprises. Duvall obviously deeply respects the Chinese people, but underlying the entire novel is a common truth forgotten by some today: China is a dictatorship that has skillfully, and ironically, fostered rapid capitalistic growth under a communist government. Marx, Engels and Mao must be spinning in their graves. Using his rich life experience, he makes observations on paradoxes of American politics through his characters. He lets some of them engage in a bit of polemics, which can seem a bit much at times.

One such occurs in Montana, where a very conservative father and his very liberal daughter heatedly argue over the militias and other ultra-right organizations that portray themselves as saviors of America. An abrupt end to that argument comes as the father stops to say hello to his friend Nestor Ruiz, a young Latino man sporting gang tattoos, who has just entered the room. And that brings us back to the character for which the book is named, the genius computer hacker Ox. Get your copy now — and keep watching the news! Posted in Tecno thriller. Piping Rock ablaze.

My mother had a little ornament that she placed on the Christmas tree each year, a tiny cotton Santa that she said she had placed on her tree from the time she was a little girl. The little Santa was, truthfully, in sad shape for its years of wear.

Why, no one knew. Not even Mom. As I grew older, with each Christmas I came to look forward to that Santa being placed gently on a high bough, nestled securely to prevent shrieking children, or cats, from knocking it to the floor. It was a good feeling. The tiny Santa moved a lot over the years. It sagged and it drooped and it faded. Yet it survived, tying each new Christmas into the ones that had passed. The last time my mother put the Santa on her tree was in Ticonderoga in Shortly thereafter, she was diagnosed with cancer and on her next Christmas, which was to be her last, she decided she and my father would come to our homes instead.

At Christmas, , my mother was gone and, again, the little cotton Santa stayed packed away. For that Christmas and the next two, my father would not decorate the house nor have a tree. The Christmas person in the King family was Mom and the Christmas person was gone. About two and a half years after my mother died, Dad told us he was selling our family home in Ticonderoga.

Reviewer's Choice

It was too big and too full of memories. The rest he would sell. For weeks upon weeks we helped him sort through the remains of a lifetime, as much a reward as a burden. As I had before, I looked through acres of boxes of Christmas decorations. As before, I could not, amidst them all, find the tiny Santa. Oddly, I think that while he knew that was true, in a way he never resigned himself to his own wisdom. Things had, indeed, changed. For my wife, Sara, and I, that Christmas of in Glens Falls was, with my daughter being six, filled with expectations of Santa.

It was also an oddly empty Christmas. My daughter sighed a big sigh! I rummaged through them, looking at the bubble lights and other things from my childhood Christmas trees. And then, I found it. Lost, but never really lost. Tenderly, I placed it on a high bough. And there it will go again this year, as we celebrate our Christmas and the memories that a special decoration carry with it.

My presentation will include a book reading and book signing.

The presentation is open to the public and free of charge. From here she embarks, not only literary, to a journey that hopefully will deliver her to her goals and as well to self-discovery. Nile is a strong character, but always human. She has flaws like pride, stubborn and too obsessed with battles. She has never imagined a life outside of war ships, never thought about families and romance. She will soon find out she has her own power inside and only mastering it she can learn to control it.

Nile and Domenic should not get involved, at all! Domenic is her superior on the Aurora, she will be his downfall. And at times during the story, I really felt he did not. Because Nile was all alone, fighting her own problems, be those simply imposing herself as a team leader or fighting her own demons. The way their connection was built was amazing at least!

The writing was to my liking as well. Though I have to admit the action builds a bit difficult and at some point I was waiting for something explosive to happen. And it did, but at the end of the story. It does have a major cliffhanger. The narration was absolutely fantastic. Kaitlin Bellamy does a great job at making the distinction between different nationalities.

She uses different accents and her voice acting is great as well! I loved her interpretation for this book immensely!

All in all, I loved it very much. The tour is being sponsored by Alex Lidell. Adventures thru Wonderland. Kasia Burlakoff. Turning Another Page. What Is That Book About.

Spunky N Sassy. My World…in Words and Pages. Pregnant, Barefoot, in the Kitchen. I have so many books for October and for at least half of them I have very high expectations! To be honest, the list looked way better in my mind, with fewer books. There is no chance I can finish all of them, especially since the month is almost over and I can tell you I am only one third down. Still, I am quite optimistic. And while most of you are probably reading books with a Halloween theme or more appropriate for this celebration, I have a month of Romance reads.

Nothing new in this department! As usual, I hope to achieve as much as possible. Leave a comment below with the books you still have to read for this month or links to your TBR. Till my next post, happy reading! Another month has passed, almost two at this point. I am again late with my wrap up and TBR. I have been so focused and so busy with all my activities and I want to be involved as much as possible in my blogging activity.

However, there are times when life outside of pages gets in the way and plans go a little South. So I think when September is concerned, I did it almost. So here are the results, with links where the reviews are up. So 12 books in total out of my 17 planed, not counting the extras. I know I could have done better, but in the last week I got kind of lazy or tired and I did not read much.

I was also excited for the release of book 3. I must say it has been a long time since I have enjoyed a series as much. Well, at least I am trying to improve my game, trying to become more organized. Title : Screwed. A career as a stripper seems a promising solution, but when that ends badly, a desperate Sharon capitalizes on that most basic of needs—sex—by matching up college coeds with faculty clientele. Her job description takes a dramatic uptick when Connor Shaw arrives and wants her as his own—for a very good price, of course.

She takes the plunge, body and soul, because this man is gorgeous, ridiculously wealthy, and the sex is out of this world. Check it on Goodreads and Amazon. I kind of enjoyed my time reading this book, it kept me all through the end which is good, because lately I found that being very difficult. I am wondering though how many readers will judge our main character beyond her relationship with Connor, beyond the hot scenes. From writing perspective, I have no complains whatsoever.

They just did not sound well to my ears. But again, this has nothing to do with the writing quality. Looking at the characters, I was afraid that once the relationship between the two starts, all the other problems will get lost between the hot scenes. Even if the connection between Sharon and Connor felt a little forced, what happens between them will really set you on fire. But there is also something else that need to be discussed after reading this book — which is girl turning to stripping or sexual favors for money.

The book raises awareness and as well some questions when it comes to that. There is also a story behind any of us and, as they say, you cannot judge a book by its cover. However, I would have liked more depth to this theme. It would have taken my rating closer to the 5 stars. All in all, this was not a bad read at all.

I enjoyed it very much, even though I wanted and expected more. The scenes are well created, we have enough background about the characters and it is not at all easy to read or follow. Final rating is 4 stars. Hope you like it too! Leave a comment below if you have read or want to read it. I am interested to know your thoughts about the theme in this book as well. I have the honor and pleasure to share with you this really amazing news!

I have already started reading one of the books and I have the review coming up soon. As you know, I am dedicated to this type of books because what is life without love? J And I am planning to go through as much of them as possible, preferably all, as all are interesting and check out the covers!!

Will has believed in love at first sight since the day he first laid eyes on Mina Harper five years ago. There was only one problem: She was happily married. Mina believes her days of true love are behind her. Could Mina be ready to lay the past to rest and finally admit that what she really wants for Christmas—and forever—is Will?

Author Bio:. Emma Douglas would love to live in a world where professional napping was a thing. But until then, she thinks writing books is a pretty awesome alternative. When not writing about imaginary people, she can be found reading, doing something crafty, binge-watching TV, playing her latest song crush on repeat, or singing badly in her car. She lives in Melbourne, Australia in a tiny house stuffed full of books, too many craft supplies and two cats who take up more space than you would expect.

From the moment he strode through the iron gate and into the offices of Two Love Lane on a crisp December day, it was obvious that Deacon Banks was something different. And unlike the usual client at the elegant matchmaking agency, he had no interest in finding a woman to marry—just a few no-strings dates while he was in town. But can the hopelessly romantic Southern belle stop trying to fix him up and just let Cupid do his work on her own heart? Tis the season to fall in love!

Kevin MacAlea, Mac to his friends, is the local high school history teacher and baseball coach. His young bride abandoned him and his son just before Christmas and has never come back. It has left his son bitter about Christmas which is hard for Mac who loves the magic of the season. When a catastrophe forces The Book Bea to close before the end of the year, everyone in the small town is feeling the loss.

While Sydney is already off-balance by the bad news, her ex-husband breaks a promise to their daughter that sends Ray Anne running away.
