'From the moment I crossed the mountain I fell in love. With the place, which was more beautiful than any place I'd ever seen. With the people I met there. And with a way of looking at life that was deeper, richer and wiser than any I'd known before. When I left I dreamt of clouds on the mountain. I kept going back.' We all lead very busy lives and sometimes it's hard to find the time to be the people we want to be. Twelve years ago Felicity Hayes-McCoy left the hectic pace of the city and returned to Ireland to make a new life in a remarkable house on the stunning Dingle peninsula. Beautifully written, this is a life-affirming tale of rediscovering lost values and being reminded of the things that really matter.
Beautifully nostalgic Adelaide stories - originally published in Byrne's hugely popular Boomer column in the Adelaide Advertiser - now available in one bumper book. Remember `Futuro'? The `flying-saucer' building on Melbourne Street, North Adelaide in the 1970s and'80s? Or Don Dervan who brought the American dream to Adelaide with a `car hop' service when awaitresses would rollerskate to your car, take your order and return later with a tray which was thenattached to, and rested on the driver's side window? Did you recite the Oath of Allegiance to Queenand Country? Salute the Union Jack and march to the strains of `Rule Britannia'? Take a gloriouslysentimental trip down memory lane with Bob Byrne as he shows us - through his Boomer articles andimages - the Adelaide of yesteryear that we still dearly love.
Tumshie is the Halloween story of a dad and son making old fashioned Halloween lanterns and a costume together. The story is set today in Scotland, and it's inspired by how a Scottish Halloween used to be celebrated. Back when Halloween meant 'guising' (today that is trick or treating) and 'dooking for apples' (bobbing for apples) and carving out a tumshie (Scots for turnip) was a rite of passage for Scottish children who needed the strength of an ox and the stubbornness of a donkey.
