Grammar Land By M. L. Nesbitt
Paperback: $9.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
In this charming 1877 book of grammar instruction for children, we are introduced to the nine parts of speech and learn about the rules that govern them in Grammar-Land. "Judge Grammar is far... More > mightier than any Fairy Queen, for he rules over real kings and queens down here in Matter-of-fact-land. Our kings and queens have all to obey Judge Grammar’s laws, or else they would talk what is called bad grammar; and then, even their own subjects would laugh at them, and would say: “Poor things! They are funny fellows, these nine Parts-of-Speech. You will find out by-and-by which you like best amongst them all. There is rich Mr. Noun, and his useful friend Pronoun; little ragged Article, and talkative Adjective; busy Dr. Verb, and Adverb; perky Preposition, convenient Conjunction, and that tiresome Interjection, the oddest of them all." Free audio recordings are available from Librivox and there are worksheets available to print from homeschooling mothers on the internet (google "grammar land worksheets")< Less

Paperback: $11.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
This is the story of a woman born to money and privilege, who rejected the upper class values of her parents while still a child. The book’s title refers to the difficulty of changing... More > things… like piles of leaves, once kicked, return to their original state. Caperton’s life has been filled with both amazing and deplorable people, charming and not so charming animals, frightening and joyous events. She has always been active in progressive causes, once pulling an outrageous stunt to talk with Mario Cuomo about an environmental issue. She was active in the anti-war movement and lived close to New York when the twin towers went down. Caperton’s life has not been all kicking leaves. She has touched the lives of many people who will remain changed by her humor, generosity, and spirit. She has written prose, poetry, and memoir. As her mother lived until almost 106, we can anticipate much more writing from Caperton in the future.< Less

This is my blog, written for myself and for those around me, so that they (and I) can make some sense of what’s going on in my life and my mind since the cancer diagnosis on 22nd Feb 2011.

More > camps while her father eked out a living as best he could. Later in life, she began chronicling those experiences and so many others in poetry, pouring heart and soul onto simple pages of notebook paper.
