Danial Thames spends his free hours loitering in the public library. There he tries to glean some semblance of the life he finds described in books from his encounters with staff and patrons. Finding a scrap of writing on the library floor, he is inspired to litter fragments of his own random prose into the pages of various books. After many months, he discovers a notebook in which his writing has been copied down. Discovering that the collector is a talented writer, Danial Thames attempts to develop a friendship but finds himself jealous of the freedom the writer has to accept or desert him.
From their gigs in tiny church halls to multimillion-selling albums--"The Dark Side" "of the Moon," "Wish You Were Here," and the rock opera "The Wall"--and elaborate stadium shows, this tome celebrates legendary rock band Pink Floyd. Lavishly illustrated with previously unpublished photographs and rare graphic memorabilia, including posters, advertisements, handbills, and tickets from every era of the band's remarkable history, this survey provides a comprehensive overview of the group, its members, and the times. In addition to a biographical account of the band's collective and individual careers--from their pre-Floyd times in the early 1960s to the present day and their music's evolution from psychedelic and space rock to progressive rock genres--this definitive reference presents a meticulously researched chronological listing of every Pink Floyd and solo concert with set lists, radio and television appearances, and a UK and U.S. discography.

As we all know, weather radar came into existence during the Second World War when aircraft detection radars had their vision limited by echoes from rain bearing clouds. What was often considered to be of nuisance value by the air force personnel trying to locate enemy aircraft was seen as an opportunity by the weather men. Thus adversity in one field was converted into an opportunity in another. Since then weather radar has found myriad applications with the increased sophistication of technology and processing systems. It has now become an indispensable tool for the operational forecasters, cloud physicists and atmospheric scientists. The current generation radar is but a distant echo of the radars of the 1940s. As a result, its operation and maintenance have become very complex, like the technology it uses. Therefore, there is a definite requirement of focussing our special attention not only on the science of radar meteorology but also on its operational aspects. The present book, as pointed out by the author, attempts to fill this gap. The author has presented the subject with a balanced blend of science, technology and practice. The canvas is indeed very broad. Starting with the history of weather radar development the book goes on to discuss in a lucid style the physics of the atmosphere related to radar observation, radar technology, echo interpretation, different applications and finally attempts to look into the future to indicate potential new opportunities in this field.
WIND ECHOES. Like the falling leaf, speaks to all manner of men. In Spring, lifes spark became a flame. Then Summer winds fanned fire into an all-consuming inferno. The Autumn glows bravely on, spasmodically fed by fallen leaf and broken twig. And Now, midst deciduous starkness, a gloomy ember simmers its hissing last, beneath falling snow. Listen to the wind echoes. Feel my touch.
The overwhelming rush of everyday life makes it easy for us to lose our sense of purpose and hope. Various stories in Echoes of His Voice give inspiration on how be sensitive to our Gods voice and walk in His purpose every day.
These are the words that filled my soul and flowed from the tip of the pen that I held tightly. These words form the poems on various topics printed in the pages of this book, Echoes from the Bayou. These poems are about topics ranging from the most mundane to the most ethereal. It is fitting that this book begins with the poem “The Rain” and concludes with “ The poem “God’s Abiding Love” I must admit, they inspired me and lifted my spirit especially during my recuperation from colon cancer. In the following pages are the expressions of a retired teacher who trying to reinvent herself through Christ Jesus in a world that she vaguely knew. Dispersed between the poems, “The Rain” and “God’s Abiding Love” are poems such as “Life,” “In My Despair,” “The Masses,” and “ Remembering Dad.” The writing of these poems were very therapeutic in helping to dispel many doubts and fears that often overwhelmed me during trying times in my life. Writing about experiences that once brought me grief now gives me joy because I now know the God of all comfort brought me through many distressful situations. The most devastating was the grief of losing the strongest and most caring person that I knew. That person was my beloved father. Now my conviction to my faith in Jesus Christ, my Savior is stronger than ever, for I truly know he loves unconditionally and will never leave His children alone. Through Him I know I can be all that He says I can be. Therefore, I must toil on until my work for Him is done. With His permission granted, I shall be all that He wants me to be. Thank you, Lord, for giving me the vision to write these poems.
