As you guys know, I never wanted a fish tank. All I wanted was to take my cheap garage sale find and play with it a bit. The plants on top were supposed to be fed by the fish that pooped  in the little tank below. I quickly ditched the plants, and went on to obsess over the fish, trying everything I could to make him happy. One new tank, a heater, toys, and a bag of enrichment beads later, he still wasn’t happy for longer than a day. Yesterday I went out and bought him four little friends. Two tiny fish and two teenie tiny shrimp. That sounds like a lot for one little tank, but I’m not kidding when I say they are all teenie tiny. I wasn’t sure if they would be friends or food. Right now they are all friends. PHEW! Slim Shady tries to catch the shrimp, but they are way to fast for him. Slim also seems pretty happy swimming with the other fish. The only thing I think I am missing is a plant. Today I will go back to the pet shop and get him a little plant to hang out in. That should do it. That should make him completely happy. I hope.

The grand opening of Anna McBride’s seaside ice cream shop is anything but sweet.

After the tragic death of her Irish twin sister, Bella, Anna needed a radical change. So, she closed her counseling practice in Boston to embark on a new adventure as an ice cream shop owner.

Now all she wants is to settle into her new town, attempt to turn her black thumb green, and build her ice cream shop into a community hub that hosts quality entertainment and group gatherings – just like Bella had often fantasized about doing before her fateful boating accident.

And what better location than Seagull Cove, the small Massachusetts coastal town where Anna and Bella created their best memories?

But when Anna finds her first musical guest, and Seagull Cove’s most famous son, murdered in the alley behind her shop, her grand opening ends on a sour note.

Anna must find the killer, or her ice cream shop will become more famous for its crimes than its banana splits. If only she could convince Joe Wiggins, her favorite new customer and a retired P.I., to assist her… But retired life is treating him too well.

To further complicate Anna’s life, Joe thinks he saw Bella peering into Anna’s ice cream shop from across the street. Bella’s body was never found. Could she still be alive?

If you love small New England seaside towns, loveable characters, captivating mysteries, and ice cream parlors, you’ll love the Seaside Ice Cream Shop Mysteries.

Eden to Evil: NEW Updated Edition: Exposing the Truth of Our Origins and Creation
by Gerry Burney
5.0 Stars (3 Reviews)
Genre: Religion & Spirituality

FREE for a limited time

In the original edition of Eden to Evil, Gerry Burney explains the difference between the two biblical creation accounts, “Eden” creation and the “7-day” creation. They diverge in so many ways that many believe both cannot be true. Did God make a mistake-and how do we fit into the two accounts?

But if the two accounts were not a mistake, then God must have given us a riddle that only those who search for truth will uncover. Burney deciphers the riddle to show how the answer helps us understand the Bible and how we view ourselves. Are we sinner or saints?

In his new updated edition, Burney builds on the original, clarifying why a third of the angels rejected God’s authority, thus exposing how early civilizations so easily accepted Satan the serpent.

Now we can finally understand why we experience suffering and tragedy in God’s “very good” creation and why we need a Savior.

Marco Polo: A Life from Beginning to End (Biographies of Explorers)
by Hourly History
4.3 Stars (263 Reviews)
Genre: History | Biographies & Memoirs

FREE for a limited time

Discover the remarkable life of Marco Polo…

Marco Polo, a Venetian merchant, was a great explorer of far and unfamiliar lands. He traveled the world in order to find things that no one else had seen — but what did he really discover? The stories that he told upon his return to his homeland of the Republic of Venice were so unusual that his fellow compatriots often had a hard time believing him. When he described things such as paper money, gun powder, and coal, these were still so far out of the daily routine of the west that they seemed utterly bizarre to his contemporaries.

But even now that Marco Polo’s discoveries are less exotic and more commonplace, do we truly understand what it was that he uncovered? This book will delve deep into the life and legend of Marco Polo.

Discover a plethora of topics such as

• On the Silk Road

• Coming of Age in a Faraway Land

• At the Court of Kublai Khan

• Stuck in Asia

• The Return Trip

• The Last Will and Testament of Marco Polo

• And much more!
