(Much easier for clean up.) It wasn’t till he joined a writers group that he decided to put his stories together for a book. His stories are about romance, adventure, history, and a war. They are sad and poignant and funny. They are about how people meet and how they fall in love. We have civilians, we have soldiers, we have young and old. Zygier was born before WWII in Poland (Poproszę kanapkę Kielbasa) and when the Nazis invaded, he and his parents escaped into Russia (Borsht pozhalusta?) From there, we were sent to an intriguing little country called Tajikistan. (Iltimos bitta choy?)

Albert Zygier lives in New York City (Bagels and lox.) with Ellen, his wife of 56 years, a daughter Roni, and granddaughter Annie who one day will be a Broadway Star.

I woke up to the sound of the dawn. The cuckoos on the Singapore Cherry tree were singing their dawn song, with intermittent guttural cries from the Drongos. The crows in my neighbor’s backyard were noisier today than they usually were. I was excited. So excited, it seemed like the birds were sharing my excitement. I had a secret that I had been keeping for many days. I just couldn’t keep it in any longer. My friends, who knew that there was something going on in my life, had given me an ultimatum. Tell, or else! Well, it was high time I shared my secret with them. It was time for me to make a decision.

The past quarter-century has seen a number of biographies and anthologies on women travelers but to date there has been little comprehensive reference work done on the travelers themselves. Some of the women were eccentric, many were very adventurous, some were in search of a different world... British women make up the largest portion of the book's focus--these particular adventurers being backed in many cases by family money, scientific inquiry, and the ready availability of the British seafaring tradition. Entries include the woman's family background, her educational history, and a summary of her world travels, with in many cases evocative extracts from their writings (many are literary gems).
Written to help men know the truth about what Jesus said in Matthew 5:28, this book proves that Jesus did not say it is a sin to look at women.

Will set men free from false guilt and the bondage of thinking God is against them for being the sexual beings He created them to be. Examines and defines what the Bible teaches concerning what is a sin, and shows that lust is not a sin. Totally based on Scripture.
