""It's an immense night out there, wheeling and windy. The lights on the street and in the houses against the black wetness, little unilluminating glints that might be painted on it. The town seems huddled together, cowering on a high tiny perch, afraid to move lest it topple into the wind."" The town is Horizon, the setting of Sinclair Ross' brilliant classic study of life in the Depression era. Hailed by critics as one of Canada's great novels, "As For Me and My House" takes the form of a journal. The unnamed diarist, one of the most PDF complex and arresting characters in contemporary fiction, explores the bittersweet nature of human relationships, of the unspoken bonds that tie people together, and the undercurrents of feeling that often tear them apart. Her chronicle creates an intense atmosphere, rich with observed detail and natural imagery. "As For Me and My House" is a landmark work. It is essential reading for anyone who seeks to understand the scope and power of the Canadian novel. "From the Paperback edition."

AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE.

Toronto, McClelland and Stewart, 1989. 221pp, paper, $5.95. ISBN 0-7710-9997-5. (New Canadian Library series). CIP

Grades 12 and up/Ages 17 and up
Reviewed by Elinor Kelly

Volume 17 Number 3
1989 May

First published in 1941, Sinclair Ross' first novel has been reprinted in the "New Canadian Library" series. Ross was born in Saskatchewan in 1908 and grew up there and worked in small-town banks. His feeling for life on the prairies during the Depression permeates his writing.

As for Me and My House takes the form of a diary kept by the wife of a preacher just arrived at a new charge in a small prairie town. This device is brilliantly sustained to the end. Under the wide sky in the dust and the wind, we feel the bitter despair of narrow lives, the longing for something more� an escape on a horse, by art or In music�and we feel the complexities of human relationships, the forces that tear people apart and bring them together.

There is no doubt that this book is a Canadian classic of the Great Depression. Also because of the depiction of church life, it is a very popular text for study in theological school circles. It is good to have it available in paperback for readers of Canadian literature.

Топик Home - АНГЛИЙСКИЙ в полном порядке

When I think about my housing conditions, I come to the conclusion, that it doesn’t really matter whether my house is large or small, whether it is of a modern or old design — it always remains the place I am most concerned about. I am sure that it’s not the size of the place where you live that matters but the way you feel about it. And if everything is all right in your household then it becomes the place you want to stay at as long as possible and where you always want to return to. I quite agree with the proverb «East or West home is best». When I travel on long distances it’s always a great joy and pleasure for me to be back home again. When my curiosity for new places and sights is satisfied I turn my thoughts towards home. So besides the delight of travelling, I have the warmest feeling of returning home.

Now it’s time for me to say a few words about what my home is like. Frankly speaking, it doesn’t suit the idea of a modern-looking comfortable flat and it leaves much to be desired as far as its space is concerned because five of us share a rather small two-room flat. But the bright side of it is that though it’s small and not very comfortable, it is situated close to the city centre. So you can easily get to any place you want fairly quickly as well as to the places of interest which are within a short reach.

I must admit that our housing conditions are poor by all standards. As I have already said it is a two-room flat, but in fact in its size it’s not much larger than a one-room flat, because the rooms are not separate and small. We feel the shortage of space especially when all of us get together in the evening, when my father returns from work, and my brother and I are back from school. It’s in the evening when everybody needs a rest and a kind of privacy after a busy day, we start solving the problem of dividing our tiny flat into small private areas.

My father feels tired after a hard day’s work and he wants to have a rest in peace. His usual way of relaxing is watching TV. My mother has to do a lot of housework like cooking and washing. The children, my brother who is seven and my sister who is four, get most restless and active just at the time I have to do my homework. Finally I find a shelter in the kitchen, the quietest, the warmest and most comfortable place in our flat. It is comparatively large and looks like a typical modern kitchen you can see in many other homes. It is the most popular and favourite place with us.

I think we’ve got all the modern conveniences and facilities of a modern city resident. There is a minimum of furniture we need, a rug on the floor and some pictures on the walls. I can’t describe my room as I haven’t got one for myself.

Despite the advantages that I’ve mentioned of living in the city centre, I think our flat has more disadvantages. I mean its very limited space, bad layout of the whole flat, and practically a very small hall. Of course, we are looking forward to improving our housing conditions and moving into a large flat or a house. But for the time being these are only sweet dreams. Our father promises they will one day become a reality.

To begin with I should say that I like my home. Of course, when we are talking about one’s home, we as well mean the kind of housing a person has got. Some people think that one’s home is as much a reflection of his personality, as the clothes he wears, the food he eats, the friends he spends his time with. I agree that many homes reflect the ways of life and habits of their owners.

In my view, to live comfortably doesn’t mean to live in luxury in a detached house, which contains all modern conveniences and appliances, which is well-furnished and nicely decorated. Certainly it’s essential to have modern facilities like central heating, running water, all kinds of electric appliances, which make our life easier, more enjoyable and pleasant. But I’m convinced that all these things are not so important as the relaxing friendly atmosphere at home. But not in the least I would like to deny good housing conditions which are very important for creating a good quality of life.

So I’d like to tell you a few words about my housing conditions. I live in a three-room flat of a five-storeyed block of flats. The design of the building is rather old, because it was built long ago.

My house has a very pleasant and convenient location, because there is an underground station fairly close to it. It takes only a few minutes to get to the city centre.

Our flat is on the ground floor. That’s why we haven’t got a balcony, it’s a disadvantage of course. My parents were very happy, when we moved into this flat ten years ago. The flat looked very spacious to them at that time. But now, as I have grown up, they think it’s not as large as it used to be though there’s enough space for the three of us.

The flat consists of a living-room, my parents’ room and my room. Of course, there’s a kitchen and a bathroom, a hall and a lavatory. What is no less important is its good layout. All the rooms are separate. We have all modern conveniences such as central heating, electricity, gas, cold and hot running water and a telephone.

I think our flat is nicely furnished. There are no luxury things in it but all the rooms look cosy and attractive.

Our living-room is the largest in the flat. The windows of the living-room face the avenue. This room looks very nice, because the curtains on the windows match the wallpaper and the furniture. By the wall you can see a sideboard, in the comer there is a TVset. In the opposite comer there is a sofa, two arm-chairs and a small table. On the floor we have a thick carpet. All this makes the room cosy.

The parents’ bedroom and my room are practically of the same size. The parents’ bedroom has two beds with bed-side tables and a wardrobe. My mum likes flowers, and there are several flower pots on the bedroom window sills.

It’s really wonderful to have a room for yourself. I think it means that I’ve got some independence and privacy. My room is just across the hall on the’right. It is quite big and spacious. It contains almost everything I need. The writing-table and two chairs are placed near the window. There are several bookshelves on the walls. I use my room as a study, where I do my homework. That’s why all these things are essential for my work. I have an armchair and a little table with a a computer opposite my bed. The piano is on the right, I used to play it some years ago. My friends often come to my place and we like to get together in my room. They say that they would also like to have such a big and nice room as mine.

Our kitchen is fairly large. There is a gas-stove and a table, two refrigerators and a cupboard in it. The kitchen serves us as a dining-room too. But when we receive guests or have our family celebrations, we have our meals in the living-room.

There is a saying «Men make houses, women make homes». It’s true about our family. My father tries to renovate the flat from time to time. But mum wants to make it cosier and more attractive. All of us do our best to keep the flat clean and tidy.

I really like my flat, because it’s cosy and comfortable. Everything in my home is dear and precious to me. All small things and old toys remind me of my childhood. Many pleasant and happy moments of my life are connected with my home. All modern conveniences are not so important for me as the friendly climate in our family. The house starts to be home when it is warmed by the people who live in it, doesn’t it?

Types of houses

Types of houses

The most common types of houses in England are as follows:

Bungalow

Although people often think Bungalows and Cottages are the same, they’re actually not, although some may appear the same. Bungalows are low profiles types of housing, as are a lot of cottages, but the distinction comes between the style, history and the pricetag. Generally, bungalows are a lot cheaper than Cottages. A bungalow is essentially a subset of the set Cottage. The word “bungalow” originates from the Indian word bangla, which in the 19th century referred to houses built in a Bengali style. Bungalows were created when British colonial administrators adapted the classic Indian style low roofs and porches built around them. They can either be detached or semi-detached. They’re very popular in America, where they have all kinds of styles; each distinct style is often related to particular states.

Cottage

Thick walls, small windows, structural pillars, low ceilings and most distinctly a thatched roof typically characterize cottages. Cottage’s were originally located in rural or semi-rural locations, although a lot of cottages have since been developed in cities. Originally, in the middle ages, cottages housed agricultural workers and their families. The term cottage denoted the dwelling of a cotter- peasants. However, that stereotype has since been washed away, as the traditonal cottage look is now sort after, making them an expensive purchase. Cottages are houses that usually come with one and half storeys. The top floor is much smaller than the ground floor, as the pillars used to hold up the structure takes up a lot of the living space. The thick, dark, classic timber pillars are usually what characterises a cottage. They’re a huge focal point of the property, as they’re located throughout the property, on display to give a classic ‘village’ look. Like with bungalows, the structuring of cottages vary from country to country.

Detached

A detached house is a single standing property that doesn’t share any walls with any other structure. Due to the isolation of the property, they’re usually more “private” and generally more expensive than any other type of house.

End of Terrace

An end of terrace house is a house situated at the end of a terrace (the definition of a “terrace” house is below). Like a semi-detached house, only one side of the house shares a common wall, while the other is detached.

Flat

A flat is a living area that is self-contained with in only part of a building. Usually, a flat is situated in a building that is split up into multiple living areas for different residents.

Semi-detached

A semi-detached house is a pair of houses joined together by a common wall. One side of each house shares a common wall, while the other is detached.

Terrace

A terrace house is a house that is situated in a long row of houses. They all usually look the same- pretty much identical structurally. Both sides of each house in the row share common walls with a neighbouring house, with the exception with the houses at each end of the terrace.

Me Me Me TV

By Me Me Me on November 6, 2014

This is Pastor James David Manning of the ATLAH World Missionary Church in Harlem. If the previous twelve words haven’t given it away, he is a crazy.

His specialist subject of crazy is homosexual men, which is kinda crazy because we’re crazy about them too! Well, not all of them, we do have some decorum.

Anyway anygay… there we were going about our daily tip-top business, flicking through the aisles in the John Lewis Food Hall, throwing shade at Princess Beatrice as she walked past our office again without even so much as a handout – and if anyone knows about casting shade it’s the Princess! – spitting at anyone with an M&Ms World bag, the usual. Then all of a sudden – out of nowhere! – we got a press release from Pastor JDM hisself, wherein he made some startling revelations about Starbucks. You know, the coffee giant. The following, incidentally, has been edited because, well, there’s a litre of vodka with our name all over it and litres don’t drink themselves! Rude!

‘Starbucks is a place where these types (gay men) frequent and a lot of body fluids are exchanged there.

‘The thing that I was not aware of is… what Starbucks was doing, is they were taking specimens of male semen, and they were putting it in the blends of their lattes.

‘It’s the absolute truth. They’re using male semen, and putting it into the blends of coffees that they sell. My suspicion is that they’re getting their semen from sodomites. Semen flavours up the coffee, and makes you think you’re having a good time.’

First of all, isn’t all semen male? We were too busy fingering Julie Joyce with a Fab lolly during biology lessons.

Secondly, Pastor J, just how gagging are you for cock?

In conclusion, a cardigan with a lapel?

As for Me and My House by Walter Wangerin Jr

As for Me and My House

Most books on marriage offer ten easy steps and twenty-five proven principles for achieving marital bliss. But Walter Wangerin side-steps such easy answers and offers us instead an intimate portrait of his own courtship and thirty-two year marriage--and a pastoral view of married life that inspires readers to view their own marriages with new honesty and hope. Wangerin's six tasks of marriage encourages couples to better understand and happily live out the vows they made, giving them tools to nurture and maintain a strong marital relationship. In his endorsement, Philip Yancey accurately describes this book as an enduring classic and a book of wisdom, beauty, compassion, and piercing honesty.
