Sayings To Live Your Life By Kindle Edition
by Gregg Southgate
Metaphors, aphorisms, idioms, figures of speech, and adages are all similar concepts in modern language. They all impart some sort of implied meaning that extends beyond the words they consist of. Even if the individual words are understood, an unfamiliar saying may trigger a puzzled expression and a need for explanation. But once clarified, these phrases are accepted and used regularly to the extent that they have been universally adopted.
Sayings to Live Your Life By is an examination of the odd world of the metaphor and its various counterparts for curious readers with a knack for linguistics. What are the raw meanings behind these sayings? How did they originate? How have they become a part of common speech? These questions are addressed for the commonly used phrases collected here.
Gregg Arthur Southgate breaks down selected examples in an effort to find their meaning and purpose. While often nonsensical on the surface, metaphorical statements are used to help analyse difficult situations, provide a degree of simplicity in challenging decisions, and allow communication of events and circumstances. Their connection to intangible and complicated subjects such as philosophy and morality is vital, offering a way to put the indescribable into words.
Crock-Pot Express Cookbook: Easy, Delicious, and Healthy Recipes for Your Crock-Pot Express Multi-Cooker Kindle Edition
by Janet Cole
Crock-Pot has been the leading brand in slow cookers for decades, and now it’s getting into the pressure cooker game. Pressure cooking has a lot of benefits, including faster cooking times and more preserved nutrients, but who wants to buy yet another appliance? The Multi-Cooker combines both pressure cooking and slow cooking into one tool you’ll immediately fall in love with.
In this cookbook you’ll learn all the essentials, including how the Multi-Cooker works, what the programs do, and how to keep it well maintained. Since safety is always important when it comes to cooking, you’ll also get tips on how to properly use both functions, and troubleshoot common problems like undercooked or burned food.
Once you’ve read through the basics, it’s time to get to the fun part: the recipes. Divided into chapters like “Breakfast,” “Poultry,” “Sides + Snacks,” “Vegan,” and “Desserts,” you’ll learn how to cook on both the slow cooker and pressure cooker functions. Here’s just a taste of what you’ll find inside the book:
- Bacon ‘n Egg Bake
- Orange-Iced Cinnamon Rolls
- Dijon Turkey Breast with Gravy
- Chicken ‘n Dumplings
- Garlic Lamb Shanks
- Sesame-Ginger Short Ribs

Whether you want to cook a meal low and slow overnight, or whip up a healthy, filling breakfast in under 30 minutes, this is the cookbook for you. All the ingredients are easy to find in stores, and any unique ones that might be new to you are fully-explained. I hope this book gives you new ideas on how to prepare old favorites, and inspires you to try some new dishes, as well!
