This book is about trips you can do if you have had a stroke. Most of the trips are about an hour long and are on the flat. There are some trips however that are inside so that you can go for a walk out of the wind and rain. Two of the walks involve transport. One is on the TSS Earnslaw in Queenstown and the other is on the Otago Excursion train which goes up the Taieri Gorge - or at least it used to. Now that Covid 19 has struck the train has been cancelled. A feature of the book is the huge number of photographs that you can view. The book is available as a paperback but because of the huge number of photographs it is also available on your phone - to keep the cost down. A book that features journeys in Otago is fine if you live in Otago, but is of little use if you live outside of Otago. The last chapter of the book however is about how to create journeys where you live using the book as a guide.

The book is an autobiography of my life and covers it all from day one, with my unexpected and untimely arrival, to my finish now and all that went on between in my days before school, my days at school, my time in the British Army and the time in the Kent Fire and Rescue Service and the Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service. I have put into the book things that I think people will find amusing, and also interesting and informative, and lastly of all the things that I think could make people cry. The book is not entirely about things that happed to me during my time while in the Fire Service. I have also taken part in other events that have gone on outside the working environment and having kept a diary during these events which has enabled me to write an accurate and hopefully amusing account of these times. Obviously I have not tried to be amusing or funny when someone has been injured or killed as I think this would not be right or proper. I hope you enjoy reading my book as much as I did when writing it.

'Wonderfully intense and honest - a poignant manual of how to grow hope against the odds.' Chris Packham, TV presenter and author of Fingers in the Sparkle Jar Finding herself in a new home in Brighton, Kate Bradbury sets about transforming her decked, barren backyard into a beautiful wildlife garden. She documents the unbuttoning of the earth and the rebirth of the garden, the rewilding of a tiny urban space. On her own she unscrews, saws and hammers the decking away, she clears the builders' rubble and rubbish beneath it, and she digs and enriches the soil, gradually planting it up with plants she knows will attract wildlife. She erects bird boxes and bee hotels, hangs feeders and grows nectar- and pollen-rich plants, and slowly brings life back to the garden. But while she's doing this Kate's neighbours continue to pave and deck their gardens locking them away, the wildlife she tries to save is further threatened, and she feels she's fighting an uphill battle. Is there any point in gardening for wildlife when everyone else is drowning the land in poison and cement? Sadly, events take Kate away from her garden, and she finds herself back home in Birmingham where she grew up, travelling the roads she used to race down on her bike in the eighties, thinking of the gardens and wildlife she loved, witnessing more land lost beneath paving stones. If the dead could return, what would they say about the land we have taken, the ancient routes we have carved up, the wildlife we have lost?

But there are also a whole lot of interesting things that you can learn about. When you find something interesting, like dinosaurs, you never know where it might lead. In case you haven't met me, my name is Courtney Case. I live in Australia. That’s in the Southern Hemisphere between the Pacific and Indian Oceans.

I’ve got my best friend and trusty sidekick, Laura, to take notes, and my cat, Maggie. Together, we form the Courtney Case Detective Agency – No Case Too Small.

This book is intended to make any reader, firstly laugh, then in no particular order, flinch, be jealous, feel sick, feel sorry, angry and disgusted or just plain sad. This is the original story of nobodies, but the type of people a lot of people can relate to, to some degree. Events are sometimes in random order, due to the author's sometimes random memory. The main dilemma in writing a 'warts n' all' book, is, whilst it's fine to do so if you are famous, on the other hand, when even your wife can barely remember who you are, it's a bit different! Basically, who gives a shit? But going with the old clich 'Everyone has a book in them' here's mine. It is a book of many contrasts, wild and excessive and funny to some, but at some points it is balanced out with the tales of the complete opposite, about family, heartbreak and loss, and has some pretty morbid moments I must admit, but this is generally about the knowledge that you gain in this life, I can't say I have learned completely yet, who does? But I'm getting there, and if I don't, who really gives a toss anyway? I didn't invent Penicillin, or The Wheel, or even American Idol, I'm just a regular guy in some respects. There is a great quote out there which that wholeheartedly sums up my philosophy towards life, 'Live as if you'll die tomorrow. Dream as if you'll live forever.' There is also a historical element to some of the recollections, relating to people and places, just to try to make me look a bit more clever if possible, well I need something! As for writing about real life, as a musician formerly, I now understand when a band says you have your have the first part of your life to write your first album, it's the same with writing about real life, all your own experiences are exhausted after that. As anyone who knows me, I'm one of the worst liars in the universe, imagination I'm crap at, I do prefer real life. So I won't be forging a career in Fiction anytime soon. Anyway, it's all academic, I'll probably get banned from writing books ever again, if anybody ever reads this. Names have been changed to protect the slightly guilty, the guilty, and the really guilty, I hope I've not dropped anyone in this too much. There are certain stories which I cannot and will not write about, too sensitive for some people I know, and are frankly a bit too harsh for this book, and that's saying something.

There is for all of us a profound Moment of Truth that lies in wait—a moment that transfixes our attention and forces us to confront the essential question in life: Who am I? For Chip St. Clair that moment came when he learned that the man he called “Dad” was an impostor—a child killer who had been on the run for nearly three decades. After turning his father in on a cold January night in 1998, St. Clair embarked on a quest for his true identity, a journey that began when he opened a nondescript black trunk: Inside he found his birth certificate—typed over and forged. His “date of birth”? The same day his father had killed a child five years earlier. Along with that, more “answers” that spawned more questions: photographs of young children he didn’t know; locks of hair; a jewelry box full of baby teeth; and records of tens of thousands of dollars in loans taken out by his parents in his name. While forensic tests and DNA proved the answer to the most important question—was he the biological son of a convicted child killer?—the rest of the mysteries may never be solved. What St. Clair discovered as he tried to unravel the swath of lies his “parents” had woven across at least seven states is something that all of us can learn from: Oftentimes the answers we seek are within us and the only path to fulfillment is to make peace with the unknown. His eventual epiphany, which took place in a butterfly garden, freed him to leave his haunted past behind and to construct a future full of light and hope. Most important, he learned that our fate, our path in life, is not determined by demons of the past or by DNA, but the power of our own free will and what we hold in our hearts.

Though many of us suspect that there is more to the physical world than meets the eye, reading diviner Joe Cassidy's story, simply called The Diviner, is still both amazing and inspiring - an experience akin to reading Lorna Byrne's biography Angels in my Hair. Joe Cassidy connects with what lies beneath the surface. He knows a side of life that is at once familiar, mysterious and powerful. In his work he sees the terrible consequences of curses placed on houses, or of ancient sacred sites destroyed. He has a unique insight into the torments caused to the living by trapped spirits and natural phenomena that stress the landscape. In The Diviner, Joe explains the ancient art he practices. He describes how he discovered his gift and why he resisted it for many years, suffering the consequences in stress and ill-health. Over a decade ago he realised he had to accept his destiny and despite having a young family, he began working as a diviner. Since then has worked on over five thousand cases. Joe does not advertise but somehow people find him. Everyone from housewives and lorry drivers, to lawyers and record company executives, turns up at his door. What they each sense is that Joe's timeless insights can help with a problem that appears insoluble. The Diviner is a story of listening, divining and healing that throws a light on a side of life that is both ancient and still very much part of modern life. And it is a fascinating and uplifting story of a life less ordinary. Joe Cassidy lives with his wife and family in Co. Kildare and is in his fifties. His daughter is the author, Laura Jane Cassidy. He has been practicing as a diviner for the past ten years.
