The purpose of this handbook is to offer a disruptive manner of looking at business through imagery and music.I am a very visual person and several studies have shown that we think in images.This inspired me to take a new look at the way we approach life, freedom, work and developing a business plan.Recognizing that time is a very precious commodity, I have deliberately adopted a straight-to-the-point approach.To be an entrepreneur is to break free, to live your passion, to be your own boss.

Der einzigartige Jahrgangscava von 1996 wurde aus 80% Xarel.lo und 20% Chardonnay vinifiziert. Xarel.lo reifte über 10 Monate im Barrique. EIn Cava mit großer Komplexität und sehr breiter Aromapalette. Robert Parker's WineAdvocat lobt mit 97 Punkten: 'The 1996 Segona Plenitud · 20 Años De Crianzae is another unique and limited sparkling Cava from Recaredo. It's a blend of 80% Xarello and 20% Chardonnay that they produced for the change of the millennium and their 75th anniversary. The Xarello was aged in barrique for ten months, and the Chardonnay fermented and was kept in stainless steel. It has a very smoky nose, with plenty of yeasts, bread dough and toast, combining the notes from the barrel and the long aging in bottle in contact with the lees. It has lots of complexity of aromas and flavors, with a touch of mushroom that made me think of a Roquefort cheese. It's very tasty, different, with great complexity and youth. The bubbles are so integrated that they make it nicely textured. It's a white wine with just a spark. It's a game of acidity and bitterness, as they never play with sweetness, and it's what makes their Cavas unique. This is really complex and unique, even within their wines. The complexity and freshness make it really one of the best sparkling wines I have tasted from Spain. It was disgorged in February 2018, 240 months after it was put in bottle. They plan to release some 200 bottles as an oenothèque.' (Luis Gutiérrez, April 2018)

Then... he started some serious mowing or re-arranging. He wanted to feel and hear something unaffected. Maybe something saying: this isn't therapy! He sought to massage the nudity of creepiness, to tame the smoothness or roughness of validity, to uncloak and understand life`s insanity. What I witnessed in the shops and other entities was cynical. You and your friends, you midwifed the eloping of cash too! We know that you and your cohorts have a horrible tendency of disappearing into the arms of Osiphatheleni. Are their arms alluring, affectionate and warm? Do they moan, "Currency caress me, Cash cushion me?" Do the police see you weave your way into those illicit arms? Do not for a minute tell me some folks are not beneficiaries. Currency, I think you are digging your financial grave. That surrogate flirtation with Osiphatheleni is despicable!
"I am here and I have hours to wait before I may take possession of this holiday flat for a simple fortnight's pleasure. The journey behind me collapses into the hinterland of my mind, rolled up as the past takes possession, penning it into its cavity and alcove. The capital seems a long way off. I think of the oval frosted glass and the sound of my neighbour's radio and the silence of the dawn and the work that has to be done in the unfolding unpredictability of the setting. I need to think carefully and to compose myself and imagine that the holidays are here and that everything is alright.But everything is not alright." (Jonathan Wood)

Iconic singer, songwriter, musician, actress and philanthropist Dolly Parton released her studio album Blue Smoke in 2014. Blue Smoke reflects the character of the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee where Dolly Parton grew up, and the tone to an extent harks back to the rootsy, back-to-basics albums she put out at the turn of the 21st century. The majority of the songs are Dolly's own, but she has also recorded versions of Bon Jovi's Lay Your Hands on Me and Bob Dylan's Don't Think Twice It's All Right to round out the collection. Special guests on the album are Willie Nelson and Kenny Rogers.

She is a guide, mentor and friend. And in these dark days of division and isolationism, she encourages us all to stretch out a hand.'A powerful insight into the life of nurses' The Times, Books of the Year'A remarkable book about life and death and so brilliantly written it makes you hold your breath' Ruby Wax
Meaningful pastoral actions, according to Donald Capps, are "actions that leave their mark, have unintended consequences, disclose a world, and are always open to reinterpretation." So, in the midst of suffering, pastoral ministers have to continue engaging in meaningful positive actions without worrying about their effects or consequences. Their actions will leave marks in the afflicted, transcend their intentions and world and will always be open to new interpretations. In a sense, what becomes of a meaningful pastoral action is a mystery which goes beyond the expectations of the minister. I think I have now, by God's help, discharged my obligation in writing this [book]. Let those who think I have said too little, or those who think I have said too much, forgive me, and let those who think I have said just enough give thanks, not to me, but rather join me in giving thanks to God. Amen. (Saint Augustine)
