It was once called 'the humour of despair'! Thousands of men worked at the 'Liverpool Docks', stretching for seven miles from the 'Gladstone Dock' to the 'Herculaneum'. Dockers endured many long, poorly-paid, and soul-destroying hours, in what were often dreadful working conditions, but their humour helped them through. This book brings to life the 'fantastic characters', their terrific sense of humour, and wonderful expressions peculiar to themselves, in a collection of true stories that took place on the Liverpool Docks during the 1960s. The book will enlighten, enthrall, and educate, but most of all entertain, and leave you with a greater understanding of a part of Liverpool's history that has gone forever. More information about the book: The book is based on co-author tony's memories of being a young Liverpool docker during the early 1960s. it is packed full of the 'Liverpool Dockers' humour', funny true stories; dockers' nicknames; phraseology; working practices and enlightening facts; in fact, it's a social document enveloped in humour! There isn't a book quite like it anywhere. Where would you find a book that comprises page after page of real life humour that took place almost 50 years ago, at a line of docks stretching for seven miles in what was one of the world's premier ports? Well we can say for certain that you won't find it anywhere other than in our book. For such stories to work, you would have to have lived it...which Tony did. The book is an opening to a world that has now gone forever. It is the only access that people will have into the working lives of fantastically funny real life characters who worked at the Liverpool docks.

We are all spread too thin, taking on more than we can handle, trying to do so much—almost as if we are afraid that if we were to take a moment of rest, we might discover that all our busyness is covering up an essential lack in our lives. But God never meant for us to be so busy. God desires for us to have rest and peace. Brady Boyd shows you how to live a life that embraces stillness and solitude, so you can find the peace that God wants for you.

Imagination is a word that is widely used by marketing practitioners but rarely examined by marketing academics. This neglect is largely due to the imagination's 'artistic' connotations, which run counter to the 'scientific' mindset that dominates marketing scholarship. Of late, however, an artistic 'turn' has taken place in marketing research, and this topical study argues that the mantle of imagination has now passed on from the artist to the marketer. It contends, moreover, that the tools and techniques of artistic appreciation can be successfully applied to all manner of marketplace phenomena. Key features include: * the treatment of artistic artefacts as a source of marketing understanding * a detailed discussion surrounding the argument that marketers should adopt more imaginative modes of academic expression * an analysis of the kind of art that marketing is, and the place of imagination in marketing's artistic palette. This book provokes a new way of thinking about marketing, and will prove invaluable to marketing academics, researchers and practitioners.

For Heaven's Sake

Written in the first person, this sparkling story traces a young man's physical and spiritual journey through the harsh realities of a dubious college career, crippled marriage and bankrupt lifestyle. Meet Jane, the looming nemesis of a wife who constantly keeps poverty knocking at the door with her credit-card addiction and compulsive lifestyle. The problem is compounded by her husband's inability to adapt to the political regimen of life in a theological seminary and his constant struggle to make ends meet. Whether conducting a funeral service, taking part in field trips or simply trying to accommodate archaic classroom concepts, the author takes his hero through the curriculum with an authority and candor that can only be the result of meticulous research and firsthand experience. Add to this a hatred of hypocrisy and a smoldering rage at the modern-day pharisaic and one has a free-for-all that has rarely been this honestly described. Hard-hitting and leaving little to the imagination, the author has some surprising revelations for all those interested in what goes on behind a ministerial public front. For Heaven's Sake encompasses hilarious scenes both in and out of the pulpit, and is a compelling read. After obtaining a degree in Theology, John Allen pastored a church, teaching subjects as diverse as textual interpretation, end-times theology and public speaking. He has published a number of helpful manuals, a commentary on Revelation and two novels.>/p>
