My marvy Luuurve God boyfriend has got the full Humpty Dumpty with me for accidentally twisting with Dave the Laugh. Which is not actually my fault. I cannot be expected to control my body parts, they pop out unexpectedly and so on. For instance my lips do ad-hoc puckering up every time Dave the Laugh comes near them, I don*t know why.

1500 California Place Names: Their Origins and Meaning William Bright This is the new "pocket" version of the classic CALIFORNIA PLACE NAMES, first published by California in 1949. Erwin G.Gudde's monumental work, which went through several editions during its author's lifetime, has now been released in an expanded and updated edition by William Bright. The abridged version, originally called 1000 CALIFORNIA PLACE NAMES, has grown to a dynamic 1500 CALIFORNIA PLACE NAMES in Bright's hands. Those who have used and enjoyed 1000 CALIFORNIA PLACE NAMES through the decades will be glad to know that 1500 CALIFORNIA PLACE NAMES is not only bigger but better. This handbook focuses on two sorts of names: those that are well-known as destinations or geographical features of the state, such as La Jolla, Tahoe, and Alcatraz, and those that demand attention because of their problematic origins, whether Spanish like Bodega and Chamisal or Native American like Aguanga and Siskiyou. Names of the major Indian tribes of California are included, since some of them have been directly adapted as place names and others have been the source of a variety of names. Bright incorporates his own recent research and that of other linguists and local historians, giving us a much deeper appreciation of the tangled ancestry many California names embody. Featuring phonetic pronunciations for all the Golden State's tongue-twisting names, this is in effect a brand new book, indispensable to California residents and visitors alike.

A Breath of Snow and Ashes Diana Gabaldon This is the sixth novel in the bestselling novel in the bestselling outlander series. The long fuse of rebellion has already been lit. It's 1772, the Royal Colony of North Carolina, and the governor calls upon Jamie Fraser to unite the back country and preserve the colony for King and Crown. One minor problem: Jamie Fraser's wife, Claire, is a time-traveller, as are his daughter and son-in-law. And Jamie knows that three years hence, the shot heard round the world will be fired, and the end of it all will be independence - with those loyal to the King either dead or in exile. Beyond present danger, though, looms the threat of a tiny clipping from the Wilmington Gazette, dated 1776, which reports the destruction of the house on Fraser's Ridge and the death by fire of James Fraser and all his family. For once, Jamie Fraser hopes the time-travellers in his family are wrong about the future. But only time will tell.
