“Rogers made history.” —Sports Illustrated Robbie Rogers knows better than most that keeping secrets can crush you. But for much of his life Robbie lived in paralyzing fear that sharing his big secret would cost him the love of his family and his career as a professional soccer player. So he never told anyone what was destroying his soul, both on and off the field. While the world around Robbie was changing with breathtaking speed, he knew that for a gay man playing a professional team sport it might as well be 1958. He could be a professional soccer player. Or he could be an out gay man. He couldn’t do both. Then last year, at the age of twenty-five and after nearly stepping away from a brilliant career—one that included an NCAA Championship, winning the MLS Cup, and competing in the Olympics—he chose to tell the truth. But instead of facing the rejection he feared, he was embraced—by his family, by his teammates, and his fans. In Coming Out to Play, Robbie takes readers on his incredible journey from terrified teenager to a trailblazing out and proud professional soccer player for the L.A. Galaxy, who has embraced his new identity as a role model and champion for those still struggling with the secrets that keep them from living their dreams. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Ever wondered what it was like for a child before the advent of modern technology? Way before instant messaging, phones, the internet and the ever so great TV we have nowadays? Did the kids of yesterday race home to play on the computer or check out a known social networking site? Did they text message each other to let them know where to meet up? They spoke to each other; they used their imagination and played. They made use of the school holidays, knowing that around the corner adulthood was looming. A weekend was for the sole purpose of a bike ride. Read the book for a funny take on yesterday, mixed with some tips on the activities and games of way back when.

Among the many histories of fighting men and women in World War II, little has been written about the thousands of homosexuals who found themselves fighting two wars--one for their country, the other for their own survival as targets of a military policy that sought their discharge as "undesirables." To write this long overdue chapter of American history, Allan Bérubé spent ten years interviewing gay and lesbian veterans, unearthed hundreds of wartime letters between gay GIs, and obtained thousands of pages of newly declassified government documents. While some gay and lesbian soldiers collapsed under the fear of being arrested, interrogated, discharged, and publicly humiliated, many drew strength from deep wartime friendships. Relying on their own secret culture of slang, body language, and "camp" to find each other and build spontaneous communities, they learned, both on and off the battlefield, to be proud of their contribution and of who they were.--From publisher description.

ALL NET PROCEEDS FROM THE SALE OF THIS BOOK ARE DONATED TO THE NATIONAL MS SOCIETY. Check out Bundy singing one of his songs to his Granddaughter at her Bat Mitzvah http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_CQCy7f1Xw PLAY ON WORDS is another term for pun. Pun is the humorous use of a word or phrase so as to emphasize or suggest its diff erent meanings or applications. Play can mean a dramatic composition or piece; a performance, as on the stage; exercise or activity for amusement or recreation; fun or jest, as opposed to seriousness (Dictionary.com). This book is full of humor, puns, and lots of fun. H. Bundy Shaw loved words. He loved the diff erent uses, the different meanings, and the different pronunciations of words. Bundy also loved to play the piano, sing, and make people smile. Most of all, he loved his family, friends, and extended family. This book is a sixty-year history of Bundys writing, beginning with poems he wrote during World War II, through his career with Playtex, his retirement in southern Florida until his death in 2002. He wrote lyrics for skits at the Playtex Annual Meeting, which included Trouble in Midriff City about the new Long Line Living Bra. He wrote lyrics and poems for anniversaries, weddings, birthdays, and bar and bat mitzvahs. Encompassed in them was a complete biography of the person or people he was honoring. He also wrote a musical, Our Fair Couple, which is a spoof of My Fair Lady. Bundy never earned any money from his lyrics and writing, so all the profits from the sale of this book will be donated to the National MS Society in his memory. It is my hope that these writings will bring enjoyment to you.

Egypt exemplifies everything we want to run from: The chains of depression because I'm not good enough, the prison of sin and addictions because I have made bad choices, the self fulfilling prophecies, because of the degrading words that have been spoken over me. Yes in Egypt there was hopelessness and despair and there seemed to be no way out. Then came Moses and he felt like he had nothing to offer. Yet God used him and the treasures that were hidden in him to set the entire nation of Israel free. Follow me through these pages and let's discover the treasures that are hidden in you. Treasures that can enhance your life and the lives of those you meet along life's highway.We will tap into the attitudes that make us pleasing to God. We will follow the map to becoming the person that only God knows we can become. The map not only directs us through attitudes of the heart and a spiritual walk with the Father but gives hints for enhancing our outward beauty with ideas for fashion, hair, and make-up. Did you get to play dress up as a little girl, twirling around in mom's high heel shoes and looking forward to the day when you could dress like the movie stars and even paint your face with blue eye shadow and red lipstick? If you did, let's reminisce together, waking up that little fairy princess that lives in each of us, and together we will give our image a new boost. If you didn't get to play dress up as a little girl well it is not too late. Hop in buckle up and away we go. We're leaving Egypt and what a joy ride this will be as we search out The New Me!
