Greasy Mad Stuff - Albert B. Feldstein

Some of the early days works from the 1950's. They look at The Price is All Right, poetry, going into space, grandstand football, before and after ads, teen thoughts, prison, household repairs, and painting by numbers. Don Martin is here with his silliness.


I always enjoy MAD paperbacks. I like the variety. Some of this was a little hard to read because it was so small. I am amazed at how timely it remains after 60 and 70 years. Classics never go out of style.

Christianity and Neo-Platonism

by Nataša Pantović

Just got hold of an eBook from the Maltese collection of antiques, Theology, from Albertus, Magnus, Saint, 11930-1280, Dominicans, Venice (Italy), Ripelin, Hugh, ca.1205 - ca.1270, Landino, Cristoforo, 1424-1504.

Compendium Theologicae Veritatis Manuscript 1 Malta Public Library Albertus Magnus Saint


Compendium Theologicae Veritatis Manuscript 1 Malta Public Library Albertus Magnus Saint

In the Middle Ages, this book was considered to be the most widespread manual of Christian theology.

It was distributed, studied, researched, passed from a convent to the other as a Christian thought. Let me tell you why! The work is divided into seven parts treating different theological aspects of the Catholic faith from the Aristotle perspective! I am not joking! It was the famous Aristotle 380 BC, that Saint Albert paraphrased. So it was a real treat to see how deep Aristotle philosophy is engraved in the Christian thought!

Within the scientific observations of different types of atoms at similar energy levels, the states with the similar behaviour patterns are called: solid, liquid, gas, and plasma. The Ancient Greek system of Aristotle, a student of Plato attending the Plato’s Academy found in 387 BC in Athens, better known as the teacher, advisor, consultant of Alexander the Great who was the first one to travel to Egypt.

Aristotle was appointed as the head of the royal academy of Macedon Kingdom. During Aristotle's time (384–322 BC) in the Macedonian court, he gave lessons not only to Alexander, but also to two other future kings: Ptolemy and Cassander. During the reign of the Argead king Philip II (359–336 BC), for a moment in history Macedonia subdued mainland Greece and Thrace. His son Alexander the Great travelled to North Africa and far East and has died in Babylon  in 323 BC in the city he planned to establish as his capital. Alexander's legacy includes the Greco-Buddhism, and the presence of Greek speakers in Persian lands. 

Plato's own most profound philosophical influences are Socrates and Pythagoras.

Plato and Pythagoras shared a mystical approach to the soul probably influenced by Orphism.



Albertus Magnus, Saint Albert the Great

Albertus Magnus, also known as Saint Albert the Great or Albert of Cologne, was a German Catholic Dominican friar that during the 13th Century studied Aristotle and Plato and has written philosophical studies synthesising the work of the philosophers of Ancient Greek into the Christian doctrine.

Life of Albert the Great

Albert studded at the Italian University of Padua and was a lector at Cologne. Was sent to the University of Paris to complete his theological education and that was the time when he completed his major work. One of his students was believe it or not, St. Thomas Aquinas.

He died in 1280 and was buried in Cologne. In 1931 Pope Pius XI declared Albert a saint.

He paraphrased most of the works of Aristotle. He adopted the Aristotelian philosophical scientific program to prepare a unified theory of medieval Christian intellectual culture. Albert had a strong bias in favor of what we call today “Neo-Platonism”.

Together with his student Thomas Aquinas he supported this “natural philosophy” as a Christian philosophical vision.

He wrote commentaries on the Bible, commentaries on all the known works of Aristotle, Albertus undertook as he states “to make intelligible to the Latins” all the branches of natural science, ethics, metaphysics.

Why Online Tobacco Outlets Have the Spotlight

When looking to buy tobacco products and accessories, most smoking enthusiasts go with online vendors. These retailers have quickly replaced their local counterparts despite being relatively new to the smoking industry. What do these stores bring to the table for smokers? 

Here's a write-up highlighting why the spotlight is currently on online tobacco outlets. 


Customers have access to an extensive range of premium tobacco products and options on online outlets. You can buy Prince Albert in a can, order for Good Stuff in a bag, or get your tobacco in pouches. Your purchase is based on what you desire and not what's available to a large extent.

It's challenging to find local stores stock up on a brand's flavor lineup, as many of these vendors often field only one variant. Fans of blends such as Menthol, Menthol Smooth, and Smooth will have to settle for originals buying from the neighborhood retailer. Such restrictions are absent from online stores, as catering to a larger audience, they offer an extensive range of premium tobacco flavors and brands. 

Time Savers

Visiting a local store and searching for your products all take up a significant part of your time. There's also a chance that you might not find the brand at the first or second retailer. In an e-commerce store, you wouldn't have to leave your home or spend time lookingfor a brand. 

With your smartphone or computer, you can access a top e-commerce vendor such as Smokers Outlet Online and place an order in no time. These websites also have search functionality features to help you find your products faster. 

Smokers don't have to spend time visiting multiple shops in search of different tobacco products. Most online outlets offer a one-stop solution to all your smoking needs. You can buy premium tobacco brands such as OHM Pipe Tobacco or accessories such as Zig Zag Rolling Paper.

Discounts and Low Prices

Discounts and low prices make online outlets the go-to vendors for seasoned smokers. Here, they can get outstanding deals and save more money while enjoying their favorite hobby. Check here to get more information about discounts on premium products.

Online retailers also get in on the festive spirit during public and holiday celebrations. They offer promotions where smokers can get free shipping, gifts, price slashes, and more.

Hazel Wood
The Hazel Wood - Melissa Albert,James Fouhey,Rebecca Soler

Once upon a time, Althea Prosperine wrote a small collection of dark fairy tales, Tales From the Hinterland. The book has long been out of print, and it is very difficult to find any copies of it. Althea has a cult following, and her living as a recluse in a remote Upstate New York estate called the Hazel Wood only adds to her mystique for die-hard fans.

Alice Prosperine does not know her grandmother Althea. Alice and her mother Ella have always moved from place to place, always escaping "bad luck" that seemed to follow them everywhere. The nomadic existence ends only when Ella receives a letter informing her that Althea has died. This, according to Ella, means they are "free" and can stop moving. They settle in Brooklyn.

Then.... Something happens. The something involves the "bad luck." And Alice does something she never thought she'd do--teaming up with an Althea Prosperine fan and launching into an adventure she never wanted.

This book is the July selection for the "Forever YA" book club that I belong to, and I'm so glad it is. Because I would probably not have found my way to this book on my own, and I really enjoyed it. This book leaves me contemplating the power of stories and the meaning of world-building. I am definitely interested in the sequel.

[The audio version comes with a bonus novella called "The Boy Who Didn't Come Home," from the same universe. The Kindle version includes two stories from Tales From the Hinterland.]

Conventionally Yours - Annabeth Albert

Conrad is in it to win it.  He and a few other gamers are given the chance to get to a convention full of players who enjoy the same game.  His reasons for wanting to win are his own.  The attraction he suddenty feels for another gamer shocks him.  Will he be brave and share some of himself?


Alden has always been the one not good enough.  Finally he has a chance to prove he is good at something.  Something for himself.  He puts it all out there for someone who only gives him glimpses of himself.  He too, has his reasons to want to win.  Can they compromise somehow?


These characters were brilliant in their own right.  Both bringing so much to the story it almost blinded me.  I loved the friendships gained, and the journey itself.  Each of the students seemed to have so much to them.  I am eagerly awaiting the next book in this series.  I give this a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
