Once I was a Teenager: Growing up in the 50s and 60s in Australia and beyond

by Jonquil Graham

Remember those long-ago days of fatty Sunday roasts, junket, climbing mulberry trees, hula hoops, mini-skirts, surfing and rock ‘n’ roll? The advice your mother gave you to ‘Wear clean knickers in case you’re in a car accident.’ Her threats of ‘Wait until your father gets home’ or her warning, ‘No nice man will marry you if you eat with your mouth open.’

When the Strathern family moved to the coastal Sydney suburb of Collaroy,the neighbours feared the family of five and their dog in underpants would lower the tone on Pittwater Road.

Whether they did or not is for you to decide as Jonquil Graham takes you on a return journey to childhood and teenage years that included sea voyages, modelling assignments, making a movie, Contiki trips, doing t...

Lockhart Memories: Growing Up in Small Town Texas in the 1940s and 50s

by Jim Stedman

Have you ever watched one of those old 1950s TV shows, like Leave It to Beaver, and wondered what growing up then would have been like? This was a time when most kids lived with two parents, often mom stayed home, before drugs, before quick and easy divorce, literally the last generation raised under those conditions. Well, this book will tell you what it was like, at least what it was like in small town Texas. This collection of memories and stories started as a project dreamed up by Wayne Scott and Jim Stedman with the aim of collecting the recollections of our peers about growing up during the 1940s and 50s. We sent out the call via email lists of classmates, asking for stories and memories about various themes: grade school, high school, sports, life in the country, places, entertainme...

I Am No One

by Samantha Peters

This is the life story of a little girl who lived in a tar-paper covered house in the woods. After experiencing her mother’s death at the early age of 9, and with her father sinking deeper and deeper into depression and the bottle, this naïve little girl had to navigate the complicated world ahead of her. So naïve and trusting she stumbled many times, but she had three things that brought her through and those were her faith in God, love for her children and sheer determination.

Conspiracy Theory 101: A Researcher's Starting Point

by Ava Fails

Have you ever asked yourself "What's really going on?" after watching a news story? Maybe you have wondered, "What is the government REALLY doing?"
Perhaps you've caught a slip of something an "official" shouldn't have said and wanted to know the other side of the story.

Sometimes those theories become fact when whistleblowers talk or years later when the documents are declassified.

Conspiracy Theory 101 explores common conspiracy theories starting out with the JFK assassination and September 11th. (and more...see Table of Content below) Then it shows you theories that became fact like MK ...

The Story: Of the Greatest Person that Ever Lived

by Mars Malo

Kindergarten is in session and the name-less protagonist is assigned to begin a private journal as a class project. After the school year is over, out of habit, the journal entries continue until years later when the main character begins to seriously question why they had continued to write long after the assignment had ended. Was it ever a real decision or were they just mindlessly following what they were to do all these year? Why do we even have this need to follow and seek guidance from a higher authority anyway? Who better to answer these questions than the person living the life in question. It's time to stop believing things out of habit and for the sake of belief itself and time to start seeking the uncomfortable but honest answers about the reality of life. Throughout the next 5 ...

Black Widow : The True Story of Griselda Blanco

Drugs, violence, and bloodshed are three words that one can use to describe one of the most notable female drug traffickers and killers in history.

She had killed more people than one can imagine and she had sold more cocaine than one could even dream....

Life, the Yurt and Everything

It was a simple plan. Straightforward. Not foolproof mind you, but what good idea doesn’t allow for unforeseen circumstances?Maybe we could have guessed that among selling our house in Toronto, moving to another province, building a yurt and starting a new career a couple of things were bound to go awry. Fate did not disappoint.Up until the yurt went missing somewhere between British Columbia and Ontario we were only a week behind schedule. Not bad considering I’d never built my own house before, much less a round, canvas one in rural New Brunswick.Despite the upheaval, the strain of building a structure outside of local codes and sensibilities, we found a way to survive. The fact this new beginning would tax our relationships with family and friends was inevitable. But just as t...

The Girl From Scorpions Pass: Surviving the Massacre at Scorpions Pass Was Only the Beginning

by Miri Furstenberg

As night over the desert, a little girl sits by a bullet riddled bus too frightened to cry. The violated body of her mother lies a few yards away. Her father, the bus driver, sits slumped over the wheel; his blood has mingled with that of twelve dead passengers. She can’t see her older brother. In a few hours an army patrol stumbles onto the scene of what the morning newspapers will call The Massacre at Scorpion’s Pass. The little girl was Miri Furstenberg and sixty years would have to pass before she found the courage to write about what happened that day. Miri and the State of Israel were both born in 1948, and her story is laced together with evocative scenes from the country’s own ‘biography.’ From Tel Aviv in the austere 1950’s, to the relative comfort of a kibbutz, helpi...
