A melancholy single dad struggling to raise his son while slaving through the night shift in a Dallas convenience store becomes infatuated with a repeat group of customers. Dressed outlandishly, they buy water and novelty candy to take with them to underground parties. It's an aspect of life the forlorn clerk has never experienced, and he finds himself genuinely jealous of the partiers. Late one night, one of the revelers asks the clerk to go out with them to a party at the famous Old Red courthouse. When he agrees, it becomes a night of trepidation, excitement, adventure, and sex. It’s a night he will never, ever forget!
From author B.Gage comes the first release in the new 'Changing Seasons' collection. Angie Webber—Leaving Mistysprings, is both reminiscent and adventurous. Set in the early 1900’s, a young lady, born and raised in a quaint, rural community dreams of finishing her schooling in the prestigious 'Teacher Training Academy' in the most famous city in the world.
Will it remain a dream or can she make it a living reality? Travel the path with Angie, from the familiar boarders of her home to the hustle and bustle of New York City. Time will tell if the different opportunities presented have the power to alter her course for better or for worse. Amidst it all, will she be able to holdfast to her faith or will it take a back seat to life in the fast lane?
QUINN IS BACK and pushing the limits on it all -- suspense, sex, love, gut-wrenching emotions -- with a fiery intense conclusion to his and Lexi's story. The more Alexis runs, the harder Quinn fights for her. It's an undeniable truth; bad things happen to good people, and Lexi is not impervious to the realities of the life she left behind. Keeping Lexi safe at all cost, Quinn remains unwavering in his duties, constantly putting his life on the line, time and time again. Two tortured souls are pushed to the edges of their sanity and their love will be put to the test. Tempers flare, emotions burst, and love flickers, but after the ultimate explosion, can forgiveness be found amongst the rubble? Alexis needs Quinn more than ever...and Quinn must decide if Lexi is truly his fate or if their romance was never meant to survive beyond his mission.
One thing is for certain: neither Quinn nor Alexis will be the same after surfacing from the mountain trails.
Now that they've survived the wild, can they survive each other?
For Rachel and Matt, moving to Derbyshire is a step into the unknown. When the fog comes down and the countryside disappears they think nothing of it. But when their father disappears too, they realize there's more to the fog than meets the eye.
Who can they trust to help them?
نبذة المؤلف: حياة الرايس كاتبة تملك فكراً فلسفياً متقدا، كما تملك قلماً أدبياً راقياً متنوعاً متعدد الاختصاصات. تطل علينا من خلال نوافذ متعددة الألوان والأشكال الأدبية والفكرية. كأديبة، وكباحثة، صاحبة رأى وموقف ... وكما عوتنا دائما حياة الرايس بالجديد فإنها فى هذا العمل الإبداعي أرادت أن تسترجع من عمق التاريخ ومن رائحة الأساطير القديمة "عشتار" إلهة الحب والخصب، لتعيش فى الزمن الحاضر بروح وعبق الماضى. امرأة متجددة تفيض أنوثة وقوة.. بداخلها كل كوامن ونوازع الضعف البشرى، والسلطة الإلهية.. وهكذا لا يمكننا التعامل مع النص المسرحي الذى بين أيدينا كعمل فنى قائم بذاته ومنفصل عن شخصية حياة الرايس.. المرأة، الإنسانة، الكاتبة والمناضلة التى عرفت كيف تنزل قضية المرأة ضمن قضايا المجتمع، بعيدا عن محاربة الرجل، بل شريكاً له سواء من خلال كتاباتها، أو من خلال نضالها.
Go to http: //cosmumps.org for a download of just the examples of the book. This book serves as an explanation of Cache ObjectScript and the MUMPS programming language. It is designed as both a comprehensive learning guide and a technical reference manual. This is useful to programmers of any level, whether you are new to the language or an experienced developer looking for more information on Cache Objects. The book starts with Basic Concepts whilst introducing simple MUMPS commands.
It then progresses on to System-Supplied Functions. Two full chapters are devoted to the discussion of the MUMPS Global Structure, the heart of Cache/MUMPS. Pattern Matching, Comparison Operators, File Processing as well as Testing and Debugging with Error Processing come next. More advanced subjects are introduced with Procedures, Structured, and Robust Code. Before moving on to Objects, Date Processing is thoroughly discussed. Starting with Chapter 21 Object Technology is introduced; Object subjects such as Classes, Properties, (Instance and Class) Methods, Data types, (List and Array) Collections and Relationships are incorporated. In addition, Embedded and Dynamic SQL is included for every Object Data Structure. The discussion of Object Technology is concluded with a table of Object Calls and finally the last chapter ends Good Programming Concepts." Taking over 12 years to write, over 500 pages and over 700 code examples make it the perfect desk-top reference, the last Cache ObjectScript and MUMPS book you will ever need. Paul Bradney (Futurecode Ltd.) writes: "I've been a programmer for almost 30 years now and I'm finding your book very intuitive in learning about Cache, in both the new stuff which I'm a bumbling amateur at and even learning features about stuff I thought I already knew. " Ed de Moel (Author 'M[UMPS] by Example'): "In short, with the little I have read so far, I would recommend this book for both new students of the language, and for people who are moving from a non-Cache implementation to Cache, as well as for people who are starting to use the object extensions in Cache." From "Richard F. Walters (Author 'M Programming, A comprehensive Guide'): . . . I highly recommend it for Cache users." Rob Tweed of (M/Gateway Developments Ltd.) writes: "This book is most timely. MUMPS, for many years the ugly-duckling of the database world, is having something of a renaissance, driven by several factors . . . There are a lot of MUMPS applications in the commercial world, quietly performing their day-to-day responsibilities in a reliable and scalable way, and the above factors mean they aren't going away soon. On the contrary, enlightened developers are realising that there are new and exciting ways now available for extending the capabilities and reach of these "legacy" applications. Modern, web-based MUMPS applications are capable of being at the very leading edge in terms of their functionality, UI design, performance, and scalability: it is a very exciting time to be a MUMPS developer. All of this means two things: (1) we urgently need a new generation of MUMPS developers to take over the support, maintenance and extension of those applications; (2) there's a lot of work available for young developers who are willing to learn about MUMPS. Mike's book is a new and modern guide for anyone wanting to find out about this fascinating language and database to which I've been hopely addicted to since the early 1980s and for which I've been an unrelenting advocate. It gently guides the student through the basics and provides a comprehensive coverage of the advanced aspects of the language. Importantly, it also covers the extensions of the technology that is specific to Cache. I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn MUMPS, or anyone wishing to provide guidance to new staff that needs to get up to speed with MUMPS. Soli Deo Gloria"
