It´s Christmas and the Ladies of Letters are busy stuffing homemade turkey sausages, adding hot pepper to their mulled wine and giving each other totally unsuitable Christmas presents. Vera has just returned from a festive trip to the Holy Land, where she has purchased Mary Mother of Jesus Jam and realised that the only universal religion is shopping. Then she and her family face homelessness when a heartless bank buys up The Bothy for redevelopment. Irene, meanwhile, is inundated with family visiting for the Festive Season and is annoyed that Vera seems too caught up in her own concerns to consider hers. But Irene has to hold back on her grievances when Vera´s daughter, Karen, finds a lump - not as Vera originally thought, in her Nigella-style Christmas gravy - but in her breast. As family descend on them both, pressure mounts and Christmas chaos inevitably ensues in this 11th series of the radio comedy. Prunella Scales and Anne Reid star in this fractious festive series of the popular BBC Radio 4 comedy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Prunella Scales, Patricia Routledge.

Team Knox´s two star players, Jet and Maura, have found their rhythm in the NFL, where their life revolves around the four seasons: pre-, regular-, post-, and off-. To increase their home field advantage, Maura decides to retire while she´s at the top of her job counseling game. It´s time to pursue her true calling… as soon as she figures out what that is. Jet´s no help, either. He´s so busy negotiating a new contract, breaking in some like-new body parts, and proving all of his critics wrong that he doesn´t have time to brainstorm vocations with Maura. Why can´t she find a favorite charity and spend her days shopping and redecorating the house, like a ´´normal´´ NFL wife? He has records to break and autographs to sign. Maura may be uncertain about what her next play is, but she knows what is it isn´t: motherhood. Unfortunately, nobody gave a copy of the ´´Maura Knox Family Planning Playbook´´ to her mother-in-law, who wants another grandchild more than Jet wants that statement-making contract or another Super Bowl ring. With so many competing interests, someone´s going to walk away disappointed. Who will rise victorious, and who will limp to the locker room to play another day? In real life, not everyone gets a trophy.

Note: This is an unofficial summary and analysis of The Handmaid´s Tale by Margaret Atwood. This summary and analysis is not endorsed by or affiliated with Margaret Atwood. Here´s a free excerpt from the book: The narrator of the book is an unnamed woman throughout the length of the novel. In the start of the book, the narrator is kept inside a high school´s gymnasium (The Rachel and Leah Center, informally known as The Red Center) and several other females are also there. Aunt Elizabeth and Aunt Sara serve as guards and discipline them. While these two utilize cattle prods to intimidate, other guards possess guns. The women have to stay in the gym except for the walks they are allowed to take twice a day. The school´s field is shielded by barbed wire and male guards known as Angels. The women are forbidden from talking among themselves and exchange names via lip-reading. Subsequently, the narrator is inside a room that is white and scarcely furnished. The room does not contain anything that can be utilized as a weapon. As she hears a bell, the narrator changes into red attire engulfing her entire frame. A shade covers her face. She descends the stairs with her shopping basket. The narrator enters the kitchen and receives some tokens from Rita, the cook. Rita is a ´Martha´ and dressed in green. The name of the cleaner is Cora. The narrator wants to have conversations with the two like they do with each other but the Marthas are not supposed to have conversations with her kind. She remembers Luke. Rita orders the narrator to go to the market. If you want to know more, download and start listening now - even if it´s 3 a.m.!

The author guides us through every corner of this fascinating region, where they have spent much of their time over many years. Gaudi´s Sagrada Familia in Barcelona is one of the most unusual churches in the world, with its melting sand-castle appearance and odd, bubble-shaped spires. Catalonia´s Costa Brava provides stunning views, as the Mediterranean waves clash with the jagged coastline. The stretch of small resort cities along the Costa Brava, which means the Rugged Coast, feels like a world caressed by the heavens. Stand above the rocks and look down to the sweeping coastline, the sea stretching endlessly. Relax at a seaside bar, sipping cocktails. Hike the trails leading from the shore to the hills above. Unlike the tourist-swarmed French Riviera, the Costa Brava is intimate. It´s like discovering a well-guarded secret. There are several busy resort cities, but there are also many quiet and isolated beaches. Some of the prime beach cities include Roses, L´Escala and Blanes. Mountain-climbing destinations, ski resorts, spa villages, Gallo-Roman ruins and prehistoric cave paintings are abundant in the region. Catelonia is marked by breathtaking cliffs, expanses of beaches, and the thriving, hip seaside city of Barcelona. In the Navarre region, men taunt large, dangerous animals for Pamplona´s annual Running of the Bulls. Andorra is its own little world, and not just because it´s a 290-square-mile independent principality (a fifth the size of Rhode Island). Nestled atop some of the highest peaks of the Pyrenees, the principality is filled with amazing architecture, surreal panoramic views, and some of Europe´s finest skiing resorts. Andorra attracts tourists for its duty-free shopping alone. Because many visitors are French and Spanish residents seeking bargains, there is a very authentic European flair to a vacation here. 1.
