Heartwarming, entertaining, mindboggling and inspiring, this memoir is bound to move the reader in more ways than one. Within a few years of making an unexpected discovery, a family of four, all of whom were born and raised in Iceland, became U.S. citizens. Veteran author, Gudjon Bergmann, tells his family's incredible story. His narration leads the reader through a number of events that seem closer to fiction than fact, challenging ideas about fate and destiny, while also disclosing the mundane challenges of moving from Reykjavik to Austin."You Can't Have the Green Card" is a unique saga that stretches all the way back to the U.S. occupation of Iceland in World War II. It tells of a love that seemed destined to last, the seductive charm of America, a long awaited family reunion, the cultural acclimation process, and how a number of serendipitous events can truly change lives. In addition, the story chronicles an inimitable version of the much debated U.S. immigration process. While naturalized citizens may draw parallels and see their lives mirrored to some degree, the story is mainly for people who enjoy reveling in the mysterious synchronicities of life.
This sketchbook includes 50 scorecards with room to record a visual memento of your rounds of golf. Each hole has designated space in which to draw the hole and key features, including room to draw a close-up of the greenside region. Use arrows to draw each stroke, noting any penalties with words. Write the club next to each stroke, too. This serves as an informative way to save record scores, make detailed notes for compiling stats, seeing whether you miss more greens to the left or right, recalling what club you used to make a hole-in-one, or making a yardage guide book with prior club selection and the breaks of previous putts. It is also a good companion to The Golf Stats Log Book and The End-of-Round Golf Diary. The cover is cool, too.

On this blue planet, long before pterodactyls took to the skies and tyrannosaurs prowled the continents, tiny green organisms populated the ancient oceans. Fossil and phylogenetic evidence suggests that chlorophyll, the green pigment responsible for coloring these organisms, has been in existence for some 85% of Earth's long historythat is, for roughly 3.5 billion years. InHow the Earth Turned Green, Joseph E. Armstrong traces the history of these verdant organisms, which many would call plants, from their ancient beginnings to the diversity of green life that inhabits the Earth today.
