"It's an entertaining story that will play at your heartstrings. An easy, light read about an old and emotionally-broken introverted Jew, a lonely nine-year-old son of a racist bigot, and the salvation found through their forced friendship. It may make you laugh and cry -maybe at the same time." Robert S. -Montreal, Canada Once an amusing extrovert with a reputation as a prankster, Mr. Rosen is entering his senior years as a stoic, thirty-year converted introvert who hates change, has little to no interest in people and is more than content to have his wife sit in the navigator's seat of his life. Since becoming a practising introvert, there have been almost no changes in his life, and for the few that there were, his wife had walked him through them, including the recent move to a much smaller home in a lower/middle-class neighbourhood where he lives directly next door to a racist whose nine-year-old son addresses him as Mr. Jew. Mr. Rosen had seen the move coming, and he is very much aware of the enormous change to come sometime in the, hopefully, far off future; though, he refuses to give it any attention. That change will come on slowly and painfully and will eventually force him to chart his own life's route. This heartwarming and feel-good novel offers a roller-coaster ride of emotion as Mr. Rosen's habitual world begins to implode while on a collision course with the chaotic world of an innocent child, its troubled mother and vengeful father. **Five Stars** "I cried -only to have a smile brought to my face before the tears even dried." Carol H.F. *Warning* The novel contains a section of strong language and involves story elements of death, alcoholism, and domestic violence. Not recommended for those under the age of fourteen. ABOUT THE SERIES The first of the four stand-alone novels in the evocative and not-so-nuclear family saga series called Herring Cove Road where a small group of troubled individuals, dealing with their own personal issues, accidentally come together to form a family unit, and then while struggling to maintain it, are forced to deal with its dark results, such as: racism, death, murder, suicide and much more. Taking place primarily in the 70's, with believable characters and mostly situated in several areas of Halifax, Nova Scotia, the series chronicles the actions (and their results) of an old and introverted Jewish man, a struggling mother, her naive and lonely son, and a boy streetwise beyond his years. 1) On Herring Cove Road: Mr. Jew and the Goy Boy 2) Still on Herring Cove Road: Hickory, Dickory, Death 3) Off Herring Cove Road: The Problem Being Blue 4) Before Herring Cove Road: Ruth Goldman and the Nincompoop (A Love Story)

** "More than just another mystery. This one grabs you by the heart" -Review by Karen Laird of Under the Shade Tree Blog.** The first murder of a child raised eyebrows, the second raised alarms. Ten-year old Dewey is moving, and he couldn't be more excited; though, he's alone in his enthusiasm. Lisa, his mother, and recently retired Avriel, his next door neighbour and best buddy, don't share his excitement regarding the move from the bungalow in a middle class neighbourhood to a dirty basement level apartment in the lower-class neighbourhood at the edge of Halifax's city limits where two murders have recently occurred. This sometimes lighthearted and at other times intense novel follows Dewey as he befriends a streetwise boy and a boy who only talks through whispers, learns the pros and cons of friendship and is stalked by a killer preying on children. *Warning* The novel contains speckles of strong language and involves disturbing story elements.

ABOUT THE SERIES The third of the four stand-alone novels in the evocative and not-so-nuclear family saga series Herring Cove Road, where a small group of troubled individuals, dealing with their own personal issues, accidentally come together to form a family unit, and then while struggling to maintain it, are forced to deal with its dark results, such as: racism, death, murder, suicide and much more. Taking place primarily in the 70's, with believable characters and mostly situated in several areas of Halifax, Nova Scotia, the series chronicles the actions (and their results) of an old and introverted Jewish man, a struggling mother, her naive and lonely son, and a boy streetwise beyond his years. Be warned, each of the novels in this touching series offers an emotional rollercoaster ride from its beginning to its surprising and, perhaps, shocking ending. Volume 1: On Herring Cove Road: Mr. Jew and the Goy Boy Volume 2: Still on Herring Cove Road: Hickory, Dickory, Death Volume 3: Off Herring Cove Road: The Problem Being Blue **Coming October 31, 2014** Volume 4: Before Herring Cove Road: A Love Story **Coming April 1, 2016** ABOUT THIS NOVEL With Blue's father in prison for selling marijuana and his mother estranged for over the last seven years, Blue is doing well, all considering. As the second addition to the not-so-nuclear Dixon family of Lisa, her ten-year-old son, Dwight, and the retired, Jewish introvert, Av, Blue finds himself living in a much better area of Halifax, Nova Scotia, going to a much better school and for the first time, actually applying himself academically as he struggles to fit in. All that's soon threatened when Blue's estranged mother returns to take him away, and around the the same time, he's harassed and threatened by his father's affiliation with the very dangerous, local biker gang to whom his father owes money. This third volume in the Herring Cove Road family saga follows Blue and his surrogate family as they're forced to deal with the quickly escalating problems that threaten both the family unit and its members. Warning: This third novel in the Herring Cove Road series includes violence and coarse language and involves situations of murder and suicide.

Micrographia is a historic book by Robert Hooke, detailing the then thirty-year-old Hooke's observations through various lenses. Published in September 1665, the first major publication of the Royal Society, it was the first scientific best-seller, inspiring a wide public interest in the new science of microscopy. It is also notable for coining the biological term cell. Observations: Hooke most famously describes a fly's eye and a plant cell (where he coined that term because plant cells, which are walled, reminded him of a monk's quarters). Known for its spectacular copperplate engravings of the miniature world, particularly its fold-out plates of insects, the text itself reinforces the tremendous power of the new microscope. The plates of insects fold out to be larger than the large folio itself, the engraving of the louse in particular folding out to four times the size of the book. Although the book is best known for demonstrating the power of the microscope, Micrographia also describes distant planetary bodies, the wave theory of light, the organic origin of fossils, and various other philosophical and scientific interests of its author. Publication: Published under the aegis of The Royal Society, the popularity of the book helped further the society's image and mission of being "the" scientifically progressive organization of London. Micrographia also focused attention on the miniature world, capturing the public's imagination in a radically new way. This impact is illustrated by Samuel Pepys' reaction upon completing the tome: "the most ingenious book that I ever read in my life." Hooke also selected several objects of human origin; among these objects were the jagged edge of a honed razor and the point of a needle, seeming blunt under the microscope. His goal may well have been as a way to contrast the flawed products of mankind with the perfection of nature (and hence, in the spirit of the times, of biblical creation). About Author: Robert Hooke (1635 – 1703) was an English natural philosopher, architect and polymath. His adult life comprised three distinct periods: as a scientific inquirer lacking money; achieving great wealth and standing through his reputation for hard work and scrupulous honesty following the great fire of 1666, but eventually becoming ill and party to jealous intellectual disputes. These issues may have contributed to his relative historical obscurity. He was at one time simultaneously the curator of experiments of the Royal Society and a member of its council, Gresham Professor of Geometry and a Surveyor to the City of London after the Great Fire of London, in which capacity he appears to have performed more than half of all the surveys after the fire. He was also an important architect of his time – though few of his buildings now survive and some of those are generally misattributed – and was instrumental in devising a set of planning controls for London whose influence remains today. Allan Chapman has characterised him as "England's Leonardo". Robert Gunther's Early Science in Oxford, a history of science in Oxford during the Protectorate, Restoration and Age of Enlightenment, devotes five of its fourteen volumes to Hooke. Hooke studied at Wadham College during the Protectorate where he became one of a tightly knit group of ardent Royalists led by John Wilkins. Here he was employed as an assistant to Thomas Willis and to Robert Boyle, for whom he built the vacuum pumps used in Boyle's gas law experiments. He built some of the earliest Gregorian telescopes and observed the rotations of Mars and Jupiter. In 1665 he inspired the use of microscopes for scientific exploration with his book, Micrographia. Based on his microscopic observations of fossils, Hooke was an early proponent of biological evolution. He investigated the phenomenon of refraction, deducing the wave theory of light, and was the first to suggest that matter expands when heated and that air is made of small particles separated by relatively large distances. He performed pioneering work in the field of surveying and map-making and was involved in the work, though his plan for London on a grid system was rejected in favour of rebuilding along the existing routes. He also came near to an experimental proof that gravity follows an inverse square law, and hypothesised that such a relation governs the motions of the planets, an idea which was subsequently developed by Newton.

In 2009, adult adoptee Sam Tallerico underwent a search for his birth mother. In the process, he was led to believe that his biological father was the actor/singer Bobby Darin. This book asks the following questions: When did the author find out he was adopted? How does an adult adoptee go about learning the identities of his biological parents if the records are sealed? What rights, if any, do adult adoptees have when it comes to viewing these files? What led the author to believe that he was the son of Bobby Darin? Did the author do a DNA test? Was his birth mother able to verify his paternal parentage? Does he have any siblings? How have Bobby Darin's family and friends addressed this news? What's been the reaction from the deceased singer's fans? Why don't any current biographies (at press time), either online or in print, acknowledge the author's connection to Bobby Darin? Finally, just what drove the author to pen this memoir? And what does he hope to gain as a result of its publication?
