Athletico Mince by John Blake Publishing
Product Description
In the first book inspired by their wildly popular podcast, Bob Mortimer and Andy Dawson have tried their hardest to produce an authoritative guide to the past, present, and future world of football. But, as in the podcast, they tend to get a bit side-tracked. As well as bringing you some (fairly) genuine football facts ’n’ stats, Bob and Andy get waylaid with speculation about the lifestyle of baked bean-loving, yellow snake-owning former England boss Steve McClaren. There’s also input from the Secret Soccer Superstar—a former player who lifts the lid on what it’s really like to be a top, top pro. In keeping with the occasional non-football vibe of the podcast, there’s also lifestyle hacks, domestic appliance tips, and meat advice, as well as Bob and Andy’s fact-files on each other and a definitive guide to lifting up celebrities. In summary, it’s a bit of a mess. BUT, it’s a beautiful, glorious, hilarious mess . . . and if you’re not reduced to at least one convulsion while reading it, Bob and Andy are going to be very disappointed with you indeed. In fact, they might come round to your house and force you to KISS THE ALDERMAN!
Product Description
ONE MAN leading ONE FAMILY across ONE NATION with ONE ARM sharing ONE MESSAGE Life is a journey… Hope and Courage Across America set out with a simple message. Our hope is in Christ and the courage is in us to use that hope to face the mountains in front of us. Along the way, Bob and his family not only share the message…they learn it. “I pedaled my handcycle away from the dock and toward Lady Liberty. We stopped at the base of the statue. We had made it. Our bikes had carried us over Snoqualmie Pass and the struggle of that first mountain and through the snowstorms and rattlesnakes of Montana. We raced ahead of dogs crossing the prairies of North Dakota and lingered on the Amish farms of the Midwest. We rolled up and down the hills of Pennsylvania and finally through the city streets of New York. Hope and Courage Across America could pedal no further.” Hope and Courage Across America tells the story of one family’s journey from Gig Harbor, Washington to the Statue of Liberty on bicycles. Along the way, Bob Mortimer revisitss the other roads of his life that brought him through losing three limbs to becoming truly whole...the journey never ends.

A Road of Legend —US-1 in Maryland

Stretching from Key West, the southernmost point in the country to the Canadian border at the St. John River in Fort Kent, Maine, US-1 connects the East Coast. In the South it links together important cities from Miami to Jacksonville, Florida. Columbia, South Carolina. It also links historic and haunted cities like St. Augustine, Florida. Aiken and Camden, South Carolina. Petersburg, Fredericksburg, and Alexandria, Virginia before it solemnly passes The Pentagon, with Arlington National Cemetery beyond it, before crossing the Potomac into Washington. As US-1 dips south out of Pennsylvania into the countryside of Maryland it enters Cecil County, the domain of the Pig Woman. According to local folklorist, Ed Okonowicz, the Pig Woman stalks the northern counties of the state as well as the marshes of the Eastern Shore, though the primary setting is usually in Cecil County. Okonowicz’s version of the tale begins near the town of North East where a farmhouse caught fire in the 19 century. The lady of the house was horribly burned in the fire and witnesses watched her flee into the nearby woods. She usually confronts drivers near a certain old bridge and causes cars to stall. The drivers see the specter of the Pig Woman who scratches and beats on the car. Terrified drivers who flee their vehicles are never seen again, though those who stay in their cars are left with horrible memories and odd scratches and dents on their vehicles. Only five miles from the Pennsylvania border, this area was rife with activity when the Underground Railroad was in operation before the Civil War. Slaves seeking freedom in Pennsylvania would ply the river at night looking for red lanterns on the riverbanks that marked the safe houses. Slave catchers also used red lanterns to capture contraband slaves only a scant few miles from freedom in order to return them to their owners. On the western side of the river, one of the tributaries offering up its waters to the Susquehanna is named for a ghost, it’s called Peddler’s Run. As the legend states, in 1763 a poor peddler on the Dublin-Stafford Road (now MD-440) was found decapitated near John Bryarley’s Mill on Rocky Run. Locals buried the body near the creek where it was discovered. Not long after the peddler’s burial, his specter was seen walking along the creek without his head. Presuming it to be that of the now legendary peddler, the skull was buried with the traveler’s remains. The peddler’s spirit was not seen again, though his name still graces the creek.

Chapters: Bob Mortimer, David Prowse, Don Burrows, Fred Gardiner, H. T. Webster, Ian Murray (footballer), Kathleen Turner, Kelly Skidmore, Lee Hurst, Maeve Binchy, Mary Byrne (singer), Nicola Miles-Wildin, Rain Perry. Excerpt: Maeve Binchy Snell (28 May 1940 - 30 July 2012), known as Maeve Binchy, was an Irish novelist, playwright, short story writer, columnist, and speaker best known for her humorous take on small-town life in Ireland, her descriptive characters, her interest in human nature and her often clever surprise endings. Her novels, which were translated into 37 languages, sold more than 40 million copies worldwide, and her death, announced by Vincent Browne on Irish television late on 30 July 2012, was mourned as the passing of Ireland's best-loved and most recognisable writer. Her books have outsold those of other Irish writers such as Oscar Wilde, James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, W. B. Yeats, Seamus Heaney, Edna O'Brien and Roddy Doyle. She cracked the U.S. market, featuring on The New York Times bestseller list and in Oprah's Book Club. Recognised for her "total absence of malice" and generosity to other writers, she finished ahead of Jane Austen, Charles Dickens and Stephen King in a 2000 poll for World Book Day. Binchy was born on 28 May 1940 in Dalkey, County Dublin (modern-day Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown), Ireland, the eldest child of four. Her siblings include one brother William Binchy, Regius Professor of Laws at Trinity College, Dublin, and two sisters: Renie (who predeceased Binchy) and Joan Ryan. Her uncle was the historian D. A. Binchy (1899-1989). Educated at the Holy Child Convent in Killiney and University College Dublin (where she earned a bachelor's degree in history), she worked as a teacher of French, Latin, and history at various girls' schools, then a journalist at The Irish Times, and later...
