The Renewable Energy Handbook
Written by William H. Kemp
TJ 808.3 .K44 2005
If you’re looking to learn a thing or two about self-reliance or environmentally responsible living then check out The Renewable Energy Handbook. This book is full of current information, facts, and statistics as well as practical real world advice to set you on the fast track to building a financially and ecologically sustainable residence.
Though he may not speak of them, the memories still dwell inside Jacob Jankowski's ninety-something-year-old mind. Memories of himself as a young man, tossed by fate onto a rickety train that was home to the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. Memories of a world filled with freaks and clowns, with wonder and pain and anger and passion; a world with its own narrow, irrational rules, its own way of life, and its own way of death. The world of the circus: to Jacob it was both salvation and a living hell. This book is filled with both romance and adventure. Great read.

This set of 12 dvds will help you keep your resolution to get in or stay in better physical shape. This is an extreme workout program, so it’s not for the faint of heart. But if you’re willing to try it, it will challenge you and will definitely improve your fitness level. Some of my favorites are: #11 Cardio-X, for those days when you have a shorter amount of time to work out; #6 Kenpo- kicks, punches, etc. for endurance, coordination and balance; and #8 Core synergistics- to build and support multiple muscle groups while conditioning your body. There are also workouts that target various parts of the body (back & biceps, shoulders & arms, etc). Get Fit!!!
If, for some reason you find yourself over by the periodicals, check out this one. Boasted as “one of America’s finest environmental magazine” by the Boston Globe, it has well written articles and great pictures.
