Starting out as lead vocalist and guitar player for Ralph Stanley´s first group after the death of his brother Carter Stanley in 1966, Larry Sparks continues to be one of the most respected figures in Bluegrass music with a career that now spans over 50 years. He is known for his fine voice, his unique bluesy style of guitar picking and his uncanny knack for finding great material. On this new recording that marks a significant milestone in Larry s career, he is joined by as number of wonderful artists who are all keystone members of the Bluegrass community: Alison Krauss, Bobby Osborne, Jesse McReynolds, Curly Seckler, Judy Marshall and of course Dr. Ralph Stanley himself. A previously unissued live recording of Larry and Bill Monroe singing ´´In the Pines´´ is also a feature. It´s a fitting tribute to one of the true greats of Bluegrass music!

This book has a simple design which makes it easy to photocopy or scan. You won´t find any branding, cartoons, or excessive decoration on the pages. It also contains a small section on how to best implement conversation questions in your class, in which I share what I have learned through trial and error and hundreds of classroom hours. This is a book by a teacher for teachers. As an English language teacher I have found that using conversation questions in the classroom is one of the best ways to get students talking. I believe that students should be given as much opportunity as possible to produce English and so I use these questions in my own classroom to foster lively discussions. I found conversation questions to be so successful in the classroom that I decided to create a resource for my fellow teachers. I sincerely hope you enjoy this book and I believe that it will provide you with lots of value in the years to come.

Refire! Don´t Retire asks readers the all-important question: As you approach the remainder of your life, what are you going to do to make it joyful and meaningful? Ken Blanchard and Morton Shaevitz point out that too many people see their later years as a time to endure rather than as an exciting opportunity. Both research and common sense confirm that people who embrace these years with gusto - rather than withdrawing or waiting for things to happen - consistently make the rest of their lives the best of their lives. In the trademark Ken Blanchard style, the authors tell the compelling story of Larry and Janice Sparks, who discover how to see each day as an opportunity to enhance their relationships, stimulate their minds, revitalize their bodies, and grow spiritually. As they learn to refire and open up to new experiences, Larry and Janice rekindle passion in every area of their lives. Listeners will find humor, practical information, and profound wisdom in Refire! Don´t Retire. Best of all, they will be inspired to make all the years ahead truly worth living. 1. Language: English.
