Books Info:

Old Mill Stream free pdf Old Mill Stream is an entertaining, humorous autobiography of the author's life, with a twist, side-stepping into a variety of subjects affecting the lives of everyone on our planet. Born on a mid-western dairy farm, initially site of a water-powered flour mill as its primary enterprise, he used this unusual setting as a beginning of nonstop adventures and experiences at home and foreign travel later in adult life. In elementary and high schools, his ball playing took on a kind of ''Shoeless Jackson'' aura, and similar student body hero workship in win, win boxing matches. Adulthood brought many childhood dreams into reality, including adventures half-way around the world, higher education in engineering, psychology, and journalism fields, sailing on 13 owned boats (many involving more adventures), deep interest in classical music as a listener, student, and cataloger. Also, substantial involvement in real estate investment and management, and involvement for many years in publicity and advertising as an agency manager and owner. A serious environmental advocate and practioner in pre and post retirement years, personally recycling everything possible around the home and agitating for similar modes of environmental compliance in all areas of governance. Always alert to finding more productive, efficient ways of doing things, and working at procedures for more healthful living, the flow of inventions and processes to accomplish them has continued unabated, from boyhood to present. Some useful, interesting examples: a super compact Portable Bidet for travelers, CSS device for do-it-yourself applying cobble stone finish on your driveways and walks, mechanized sheet rock lifter for one-man ceiling work, ear wax flusher, a blizzard helmet, boat engine winterizer, mechanized shucker of garden peas etc. Easy to read, there's something for everyone in this book.
