The collective consciousness of World War II revolved around the virtues of bravery, sacrifice, and commitment. Members of the Greatest Generation toed political and social lines in hopes of winning the war. They fell into lockstep, not asking many questions and breaking few social and sexual mores. Or did they? In fact, World War II, like all wars, was an era of sexual experimentation and a general loosening of morals. During this time of conflicting emotions and messages, of great sacrifice, and of discovery, some groups, especially women, experienced a relaxing of bonds that had kept them in check. "Thanks for the Memories: Love, Sex, and World War II" is the true story of how that generation responded to the fervor of war and how those passions changed their livesand the relationships between the sexesforever. But this book is more than that. As Jane Mersky Leder writes, "Thanks for the Memories" opens the hearts and memories of a generation that is dying, by one estimate, at the rate of more than 1,000 a day. It not only exposes the Greatest Generation s sexual and romantic escapades, it underscores how those four war years revolutionized relationships (including those between gays) and helped set the stage for the second wave of the women s liberation movement. Many who never thought their stories mattered, Leder writes, now feel the pull of limited time, and the importance of leaving an accurate account for their children and grandchildren of what it was like to be a young man or young woman during World War II. This is their collective story. "

If you're anything like me - you either have, or would like to have, a love affair with cigars. Whether you are a cigar connoisseur or just getting started you know that a great cigar can mark a memory for life. Just like certain aromas or a special song on the radio will trigger a look back, fond or otherwise, the right cigar at the right time will forever be a placeholder in your mind. I'm not talking about the cigars you might smoke every day. No - I'm talking about the ones you save for, the ones you savor, the ones you may only be able to afford once in a lifetime. Like a fine bottle of wine for a special occasion - an excellent cigar celebrates the milestones in one's life. Just before my 50th birthday I decided that I would celebrate the year by smoking each of the top 25 cigars on the 2013 Cigar Aficionado's list. This book is a review of those cigars and a few other gems I discovered on my journey. Each smoke marks the story of a special place, person or event. Draw deep and enjoy.

Home at last together to our la Jolla, CA oceanfront apartment where we can sleep tonight to the sound of the surf pounding against our front deck. In early January, Debbie and I were invited for a weekend at Sands Resort in Las Vegas by my father and mother. As we walked in Debbie asked, is that your mother over there in a crowd of people, I said, "Yes, how did you know." "She looks like you" was her reply. My mom Alberta Roach loved to entertain guests at her home in New Jersey and immediately welcomed Debbie into the Roach family. The two of them were inseperable the entire weekend. Alberta would become Debbie's new mother as they both had the same sense of humor and desire to perfect the art of entertaining. Dad and I watched play-off football while the two women enjoyed each others company. Alberta and Debbie became friends for life. It was a sad day for both of us when they imploded the Sands Resort in Las Vegas, because we all had fond memories of Debbie's first meeting with my parents and her being so warmly welcomed into the Roach family. Back in La Jolla Debbie let my son Michael know that she would cook him anything he wanted at least once a week, so every Friday night Mike was there for dinner, which further sharpened Debbie's culinary skills. A giant of a man moved in next door, his name is Duncan Edwards and is a good friend to this day. Duncan was the tight end for the Pittsburgh Steelers right up to the year of the start of the Pittsburgh dynasty. Duncan could smell Debbie's cooking and often invited himself to dinner. During these years Duncan became construction superintendent of Barona Casino, one of San Diego's first casinos. Debbie and I saw the birth of San Diego's Indian Casino Industry with intimate detail through our pal Duncan. Duncan, like my son also became a regular invitee to Debbie's experimental cooking. Debbie and I had season tickets to the San Diego Opera, San Diego Chargers and San Diego Padres and occasional tickets to San Diego Symphony, so between her cooking and all this activity she was a very busy lady. After two years of ocean front living Debbie starting getting ear infections, the doctor claimed it was common for people living too close to the ocean, so we moved to a four bedroom home near the top of Mt. Soledad in La Jolla. From ocean front to mountain top with a much larger kitchen and huge deck with a hot tub overlooking the Pacific. Lots of room for Debbie to entertain guests. My daughter Patty and her husband Sam visited from Vermont as did, my mom and Dad from their Florida home, Debbie's brothers and sister from Vermont and my sister and niece from Naples Florida were the early visitors. Debbie's best friend and confidant was Suzanne Benoit wife of garlicky Gary who owned a Pak Mail two blocks from where we lived. The four of us had a routine for pizza and beer at Pacific Beach weekly. Gary and Suzanne eventually sold their business and moved back to Ontario, Canada. The cast of characters, that is our good friends who encouraged and contributed to this book also those that Debbie and I would like to say "Thanks for the Memories" Our four bedroom home attracted a multitude of guests, Debbie's old boss Nan Patrick, many of Debbie's loyal customers from the fashion business, her closest Vermont pal Jean Bluto who stayed a week. Debbie like Alberta became known as the great entertainer and she loved this new role and enjoyed every minute of it. My mom and dad eventually moved to Boynton Beach Florida and visited us often in La Jolla, CA. Alberta turned over many of her hor d' oeuvres and appetizer recipes to Debbie on a set of 3 x 5 cards she made especially for Debbie. In Vermont and our many trips to nearby Montreal, Debbie was exposed to the French Canadian influence that gave her so many of the French and Canadian recipes in this book. Now living in Southern California we both aquired a taste for Mexican food so a new challenge was before us. Friends like Richard and Shirley Lopez, Adriana Rodriguez, and Joe Vasquez spent time in Debbie's kitchen showing her the various techniques of Mexican cooking. Eventually Debbie could hold her own in preparing Mexican cuisine. Richard Lopez took pride in saying: "If my salsa doesn't make you cry, it is no good," Kathie Derby lives in Tampa, FL and met Debbie on one of our trips to Las Vegas. Kathie is so proud of her Italian heritage that she contributed not only Italian recipes but some of her Italian humor to this book as well. When it comes to exotic recopies, Debbie was lucky to have a La Jolla restaurant owner visit us often and teach her the use of the many spices. Meera eventually left La Jolla to take care of her ailing mother in India. Meera is such a dear friend that we visited her on our last trip to India in 2007 where she asked: "What can I make you?' "Meera's eggs, like you taught me in my own kitchen,' Debbie replied. Meera laughed and once again..., prepared this wonderful champagne brunch. My only experience with vegetarian recipes was with Pat Penoyer who would cook separate meat meals for me and tofu recepies for herself until my son Michael married Lori Colt who contributed many vegetarian recipes to this book. Debbie always reciprocated with vegetarian cooking when she was aware of a vegetarian guest. Still others made contributions, Cecilia Clauss from Squim, Washington, Marlene Pollock from Montreal, Canada, Ted Labbe from Maine, Cathy Johnson from Vermont and so many others. Special mention of Stella Frenette nearing her 100 birthday this year and her daughter Jacqueline Travis for their contributions as well as Micheline Tremblay near Cicutumi, Canada. The surprise came one day in our third year when Debbie announced to me: "Out of the Kitchen, this is my territory, I have earned it." "Yes, you have," I said. "Congratulations!" "Should I help with the dishes?" "No, never! The Kitchen is my territory" "I love you Debbie." "I know it, I love you too, Go back to painting or writing screenplays and books, I now have my own art form." And so it was, Debbie became an accomplished artist in her own right. We dedicated our lives to each other and I sure benefited from her fantastic cooking and tender love. As recently as October 2010 our conversations would go like this; after breakfast each morning Debbie would approach me while I am writing and say the following: "What would like for lunch?" "I don't know." "How about for dinner?" "Ha! I can't even decide lunch and you are asking me about dinner?" So I would give her a hug and a kiss, stop writing and go into the living room with her to relax. "For lunch why don't you surprise me and for dinner let's either go to a restaurant out or pick something from your cookbook." "I'd rather cook, you take me out too much, I like just the two of us at home." "How about Steak au Poivre?" I asked. "You always say that, you just had that two days ago." "What's in the freezer?" "Just about everything, beef, chicken, lamb, fish and those baseball sized meat balls you like so much." "Just about everything, beef, chicken, lamb, fish and those baseball sized meat balls you like so much." "Great, just like they serve at that great Italian restaurant Rao's in Las Vegas and in the Bronx, New York. Sure lets do it, Spaghetti and meat balls, real basic but a delicious favorite." "Do you want antipasto, garlic bread and Chianti wine. "Sure! Give me a hug, I love you so much!"
