"Wine," Benjamin Franklin wrote, "is proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy." The late Patrick Baude added that wine writing is not really "about wine as such" but rather "the good life to which wine might be a tool." In this wide-ranging collection, the much-loved professor at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law reflects on wine, spirits, beer and their relationship to that good life. As he explores how wine fits with local food, changing seasons and even his own family dynamics, he pairs Bloomington's rich cuisine and culture with timeless wisdom and universal truths. Drawing heavily on his writings for Bloom Magazine--with revised and expanded material and tributes from family and colleagues--the voice of Professor Baude, who passed away in 2011, lives on here.
A collection of quotes, anecdotes, and malaprops from one of baseball’s wisest and wittiest personalities. New York Times–bestselling author Phil Pepe takes readers along on Yogi Berra’s journey from St. Louis to New York’s Yankee Stadium, including all the stops along the way—from his days as a tack-puller in a women’s shoe factory, to a pre-game tribute in St. Louis, when he coined the phrase, “I want to thank all those that made this night necessary,” to his induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Pepe explores Yogi Berra as a boy, player, hero, coach, manager, husband, father, and jokester, including all of the “Yogi-isms,” in an absorbing treatment that is simultaneously comical, thoughtful, and biographical. Famous Yogi-isms: - About a popular restaurant: “Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded.” - On Little League Baseball: “I think it’s wonderful. It keeps the kids out of the house.” - On why the Yankees lost the 1960 World Series: “We made too many wrong mistakes.”
Besides being on of the most treasured writers in American history, Mark Twain was also one of the most quotable. With witticisms about the enigmas of life, importance of education, delights (and annoyances) of travel, absurdity of politics, double standards of society, joys of love, ludicrousness of aging, and much more, this comprehensive compendium contains more than 500 quotations ...
Ey up, it's not only footie, pints and pies that are better up north - the humour also takes some beating. Whether it's comics like Peter Kay, Les Dawson and Victoria Wood, telly shows like Corrie and Open All Hours, or writers like Alan Bennett and Keith Waterhouse, the funniest and best-loved invariably hail from the land of perpetual drizzle (another thing they do better). This grand collection of northern wit is packed with these favourites and more. Likely lads and lippy lasses cast a wry eye on subjects close to the heart of every northerner, including - brass, grub, graft, courting, cricket, tittle-tattle and t'weather - adding up to a feast of northern hilarity.
Based on South Africa’s beloved comic strip, this special volume features Madam & Eve's favorite grandmother, Mother Anderson, as she shares her thoughts on surviving life’s twists and turns with a little help from her old friend, gin and tonic. Cantankerous yet warm and witty, Mother Anderson is depicted watching television and fighting with both Eve, her daughter’s maid, and the mielie lady—who frequently wakes the combative granny from her naps while selling ears of corn on the street. Entertaining and politically aware, this book provides a cynical and lighthearted perspective on life in South Africa.
