One person's trash is another's treasure! In his newly revised classic, All the Best Rubbish, Ivor NoËl Hume traces the fascinating history of collecting from its recorded beginnings and describes the remarkable detective work that goes into establishing the probable facts about uncovered and often underappreciated treasures. Now expanded with hints, tips, and helpful information about antique-hunting online, All the Best Rubbish is the ideal book for the antiquarian or amateur, the historian or professional collector—for anyone who knows that there's no such thing as "just junk." NoËl Hume, former head of the Department of Archaeology for Colonial Williamsburg, has pursued bottles, pottery, clocks, and coins through junk shops, street markets, attics, and cellars on two continents. He's unearthed the most fascinating—and valuable—rubbish from the most unlikely places: the shores of the Thames in London; the lagoons of the Caribbean; the bottom of Martha Washington's well. Hume knows everything that's worth knowing about collecting—why we do it, what we can find, where we can find it, and what we can learn from it.

Plastic bottles, cardboard boxes, aluminium cans... we all get through a lot of rubbish, but do you really know what happens after you put it in the bin? Are you even sure which bin it goes in? Recycling has never been more important – but it has also never been more complicated. Where do you put bottle lids? Why can't black plastic be recycled? What do you do with labels? The Rubbish Book answers all these questions and many more, providing you with all the information you need to become a true recycling expert, so you can help protect the planet with confidence. Written by an award-winning sustainability expert, it includes an A–Z of household items and whether they can be recycled; an in-depth look at the collection and sorting processes; a break-down of what the recycling symbols on our packaging actually mean; and an insight into the future of recycling and the new materials that will change the way we look at rubbish for ever.

Helping Children with Low Self-Esteem is a guidebook to help children who: don't like themselves or feel there is something fundamentally wrong with them have been deeply shamed have received too much criticism or haven't been encouraged enough let people treat them badly because they feel they don't deserve better do not accept praise or appreciation because they feel they don't deserve it feel defeated by life, fundamentally unimportant, unwanted or unlovable bully because they think they are worthless or think they are worthless because they are bullied and, feel they don't belong or do not seek friends because they think no-one would want to be their friend. Ruby and the Rubbish Bin is a story for children with low self-esteem. Ruby hates herself so much that she often feels more like a piece of rubbish than a little girl. Sometimes Ruby feels so miserable that she wants to sleep and sleep and never wake up again. Then Ruby meets Dot and, over time, Dot helps Ruby to move from self-hate to self-respect. After a very important dream, and help from Dot, Ruby finds her voice and her anger, and stands up to the bullies. She makes new friends and knows what it's like to feel happy for the first time in her life.

It is from the discards of former civilizations that archaeologists have reconstructed most of what we know about the past, and it is through their examination of today's garbage that William Rathje and Cullen Murphy inform us of our present. Rubbish! is their witty and erudite investigation into all aspects of the phenomenon of garbage. Rathje and Murphy show what the study of garbage tells us about a population's demographics and buying habits. Along the way, they dispel the common myths about our "garbage crisis"—about fast-food packaging and disposable diapers, about biodegradable garbage and the acceleration of the average family's garbage output. They also suggest methods for dealing with the garbage we do have.

During your lifetime you will be meeting a lot of people in your extended journey and travels. The quickest and easiest way to make a favorable impression is to possess a quick, tactful and ready wit or possess a good sense of clean humor. A few examples may help. When discussing children, you can say, I gave my son a Spiderman costume as a gift and he said that he was Spiderman. I told him that he wasnt Spiderman, but I did not know how to get him off of the wall. Or, state trooper recruit to personnel manager: What kind of pay can I expect? Reply, I dont like to brag, but on this job you can write your own ticket. Or, a young lady dating a mortician said, Sometimes I dont think he knows that Im alive. Or, Doctor, when will I know something after my operation? Doctor Smoothy, That depends on what you knew before your operation. Or, two bees drank too much dandelion wine; they were not drunk but both of them had a buzz. Or, a different chicken joke based on that age old question, why did the chicken cross the road? Answer: She wanted to beat up a chicken who called her a dumb cluck. For now, enough is enough. If you want more humor of a similar questionable nature buy Jokes 102.
