Cammie Breyer needs a big glass of cabernet—her restaurant failed and her chef boyfriend left for a hotter kitchen. Just when she thinks she’s hit rock bottom, her Aunt Ginger calls with a surprise. She’s bought a vineyard—in Delaware. At Ginger’s command, Cammie returns to Black Dog Bay, the seaside town where she spent her childhood summers with her aunt and her cousin, Kat.

Once Upon The Water is a series of adventures that take you fishing along with the author from Canada to Mexico with numerous stops closer to Mike Yurk’s home in the upper Mid West. But the adventures are more than travels to faraway places and catching fish. They are memories shared with friends and family that make them. There are recollections of fishing over the years with a cousin, taking Mike’s 82 year old mother fishing, a tribute to the grandfather who taught Mike how to fish, and reminiscences of his father while fishing his father’s favorite trout stream. Adventures with his son and sons-in-law illustrate the special relationships formed and crazy antics occurring while fishing together. A lazy day of fishing on a hot summer day with Mike’s wife evoke the joys of when the living is easy. There are fishing tales from Alabama in an email from England and a testimonial to a buddy who travels from Germany to fish in America. Join Mike and long time friends as they fish when it is twenty below zero on a winter day in northern Minnesota, a trip when they catch walleyes from a remote lake in Canada and on another adventure where they fish for smallmouth bass that are as big as footballs. Old bonds are rekindled with family and friends during an annual gathering where the champagne and memories flow. An old and new friend fish together in Key West and a new fishing buddy is found due to a chance encounter on the way to Mexico. Fishing is an adventure not because of where you are or what you catch but because of the people who share it with you. It all starts once upon the water.

When Dani Springer's teenage son decides to move to the East Coast to live with his father, she pulls up stakes and heads for the Berkshires to open a Bed and Breakfast, and wait for him to come to his senses. She finds the perfect New England Colonial with a magnificent English-style cottage garden. The only catch is that the house comes with the eighty-three year old owner, who will only sell the house if she can continue living in the guesthouse, rent free. At first, the arrangement seems simple enough, but nothing about the relationship between Dani and Clarissa Hamilton is simple because, long ago, the house became the most important part of Clarissa's life. Now that it is being turned into a business, she is not amused and finds ways to sabotage Dani's efforts to get The Maples up and running. The battle between the women is sometimes funny, sometimes painful. The wild card in the mix is Evan Murray, the landscape architect who is reworking the cottage garden. The threads of Clarissa's, Evan's, and Dani's lives become entangled as Evan and Clarissa come to terms with a past they didn't know they shared.

Not quite four months after the Western Region's election of October 10, 1965, did the localized mayhem in that Region find its way furiously into the center of the nation on January 15, 1966! It was like a whirl-wind of nothing but anarchy and lawlessness. The serious aftermath of the marred and rigged election was that it acted as the last straw that broke the Carmel's back, providing immediate reason for the army to overthrow the government of Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe. Anarchy ensued; a counter coup led to the death of Major-General Ironsi. Callous barbarous massacre of thousands of easterners in the North followed. With their lives in jeopardy, easterners fled for safety to eastern region; refugee crisis followed. To guarantee their safety, easterners seceded from Nigeria and on May 30th 1967, formed an independent and sovereign nation of the Republic of Biafra. Determined to bring Easterners back, on July 6, 1967 Nigeria invaded Biafra; waged a gruesome thirty-month-civil war against Biafra. Nigeria blockaded Biafra on land, sea and air, to prevent food from entering Biafra. A malnutrition disease, Kwashiorkor that caused the deaths of thousands of Biafrans, followed. Nigeria bombed Biafran civilians, killing thousands. On January 12, 1970 the war ended leaving more than three million people dead in a war that was totally avoidable!

Her ex-husband has a new wife, a new baby, and a look of pity for Maeve that's absolutely infuriating.

And now, her cousin Sean Donovan has been found dead, sitting in his car in a public park in quiet Farringville, New York, shot through the head. There was never much love lost between Maeve and Sean and she's not exactly devastated by his death, but suddenly the police are poking around asking the family questions. It's just one more hassle Maeve doesn't have time for, until she realizes that her father, whose memory and judgment are unreliable at best, is a suspect in the murder. Maeve is determined to clear his name, but is she prepared to cope with the dark memories and long-hidden secrets that doing so might dredge up? Maggie Barbieri will mesmerize readers with Once Upon a Lie, a gripping novel about family, justice, and the choices we make that define who we are.

What is it all about? What is wine made from? What is in it? What are we drinking? One substance makes up 80 percent of every single bottle of wine. Can you guess what that 80 percent is? It is not grapes. It is not sugar. Its water! In fact, all manufactured beverages are in the neighborhood of 80 percent water. This is one of the very basics: that wine uses water as a carrier as the base. Of course, we too are made up of 75 percent 80 percent water! Let us clarify; wine makers do not add water to the wine they make to reach 80 percent. This is simply the natural proportion of water in wine. Choose a single grape, and that grape is 75 percent to 85 percent water. Therefore, that is where it begins. Theres no water added; it just comes naturally with the grape. The nature of water itself is another whole story, but it is true that water is colorless and odorless. It can be in three states: liquid, gas, and solid. The atom of water is so unique and is one of the strongest of the atoms. It takes so much energy to be able to break it apart. Water is life itself, and water is the first and the most basic aspect of wine.
