When a young woman disappears while walking along a local country road, the sleepy little town of Mesa Grande is plunged into chaos. Mystery buff Lake Anderson, vigorous in her sixties, thinks she may have a lead in the case, but a vicious attacker could end her sleuthing career before it can begin. Lake is perturbed when she hears of the disappearance of Sandra Molina. Having once lived in the same neighborhood as the Molinas, she can't imagine something so dangerous happening in her community. But that isn't the last of the crimes. When Lake and her friend Claire are attacked while working at Village Stationers, Lake can't help but wonder if it's somehow connected to Sandra's disappearance. Meanwhile, an eccentric customer is making both women uneasy, and rumors begin flying around Mesa Grande. Why is the owner of the antique shop acting so strangely? And why has no one seen his brother for years? Another ominous encounter at the annual Strawberry Festival becomes the first step in revealing a diabolical crime and horrifying cover-up. Join Lake and her friends in California's Central Coast area for this cozy mystery featuring a couple of close calls-and one very clever culprit.

Ever Towards Silence

Author: Francis Knoll
Publisher: Lulu Press, Inc
ISBN: 9781483432410
Release Date: 2015-06-26
Genre: Poetry

In this new collection of poetry, author Francis Knoll examines our world of appearances and inevitable death, considering its many contradictions and failings with a will to extract meaningful existence. Featuring colorful imagery that focuses on the natural world, these poems approach the problems and frailty of human life with a sense of destiny and higher purpose. Knoll explores time, mortality, and emotion, looking deeply at the inner attitudes needed to transform or circumvent our difficulties while moving toward a wordless state of being—an inner silence—and a separate spiritual existence. These verses invite you to consider your place in time and delve into the mysteries of life. Flame Flame eternal without substance From matter to aether Holding, writhing, wanting all, Consuming, breathing, but neither Dying nor living and all, all powerful; Yet delicate as the petals of ancient flowers Dug up from graves to be seen now And at this very hour.

Webster s Unabridged Dictionary 1913

Noah Webster (1758–1843), the author of the readers and spelling books that dominated the American market at the time, spent decades of research in compiling his dictionaries. His first dictionary, A Compendious Dictionary of the English Language, appeared in 1806. In it, he popularized features that would become a hallmark of American English spelling (center rather than centre, honor rather than honour, program rather than programme, etc.) and included technical terms from the arts and sciences rather than confining his dictionary to literary words. Webster was a proponent of English spelling reform for reasons both philological and nationalistic. In A Companion to the American Revolution (2008), John Algeo notes: "it is often assumed that characteristically American spellings were invented by Noah Webster. He was very influential in popularizing certain spellings in America, but he did not originate them. Rather he chose already existing options such as center, color and check on such grounds as simplicity, analogy or etymology". In William Shakespeare's first folios, for example, spellings such as center and color are the most common. He spent the next two decades working to expand his dictionary. This is the compilation of the Webster's Unabridged Dictionary from 1913. It contains 111,716 words and has 1,557,155 cross-references. The reason for the high number of cross-references is that each word within a given definition is further linked to its own definition in this ebook, Websters Unabridged Dictionary 1913, if such a definition exists.
