The Grab Bag #2: Fantasy Fashions: Selective Shopping & Hand Me Down: Kris Kreme
Coupon-clipping Mrs. Frugalicious gets more than she bargained for. After Mr. Frank ´´Finance´´ Michaels loses the family’s financial nest egg in a Ponzi scheme, his wife Maddie does whatever she can to help keep up the appearance that everything is financially fine. When she starts a bargain hunter’s blog under the alias Mrs. Frugalicious, her website becomes a viral hit with a growing ´´frugarmy´´ of budget advice seekers. While Maddie is researching ´´frugasm´´-worthy deals on holiday shopping for teens, Eternally 21 store manager Laila DeSimone mistakenly accuses her of shoplifting. Then her day goes from bad to worse when Laila expires on the floor. Since Laila was a universally disliked manager, the murder suspect list is longer than Maddie’s bargain spreadsheet. But when evidence points to Maddie as the prime suspect, she must track down the real culprit. Can she uncover the truth before police throw away her get-out-of-jail-free coupon for good? Includes bargain shopping tips & techniques. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tavia Gilbert. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/011868de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.

Shirley Pitts, the eldest of six children, was born upside down on November 24, 1934. Her ´´career´´ began by thieving bread off doorsteps and coal from coal carts. Her father´s bungled attempts at black marketeering and her dipsomaniac mother´s inadequacies made Shirley resolve to be not only a first-class thief but also the best mother her six children could wish for. Before she died Shirley told her story to Lorraine - the story of a generous, brave, and beautiful woman with a huge sense of fun and a love of life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Annie Aldinton.

This week on Car Talk, Judith´s trip home for the holidays got a little more interesting when the transfer case in her Mazda exploded, sending flames into the car, and melting her brake pedal. Happily, Judith escaped injury, but she´s calling in the Car Talk forensics team to try to figure out what happened. Meanwhile down in Alabama, June is using her Jeep to off-road--over the speed bumps in the parking lot at work. Is she doing more damage to the car, or her teeth? Also, on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Victoria went car shopping for her three sons, and career shopping for herself. All this, a puzzler from the high-speed chase series, and lots more on this week´s encore edition. [Broadcast Date: January 2, 2010] 1. Language: English.

Northern Ireland´s capital, Belfast, nestles in a semicircle of hills, where the River Lagan enters Belfast Lough. About a third of the population of Northern Ireland live here. The Titanic was built here and the dock where that was done has been preserved, along with the cranes and equipment used. Even the offices where the ship was designed remain as they were. Then there is County Antrim, which is beautiful. Its coast is dotted with beaches and rocky inlets. Inland there are nine glens, which descend to the sea. In addition to wonderful scenery, with forests, rivers and waterfalls, the landscape is dominated by spectacular ruins of fortresses built by Gaelic chieftains and Norman invaders. The area called Cityside includes at its core the only intact medieval walled city in Ireland or the British Isles. Facing it is the Waterside area. Saint Columba founded a monastery here in 546. Take a walk along the walls of the medieval city. Criss-crossed by mountains, moorland and inland waters, the Sperrins has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. What makes it so wonderful is that it is so peaceful. Tyrone is the largest county in the North yet has the smallest population. There are also nature trails and forest parks to explore. From the 18th to the last century, a huge number of its people left to seek new lives in North America and there are many places closely associated with them - ancestral family homes of US Presidents and other prominent figures, such as the Mellons, who founded Pittsburgh, Davy Crockett, President Woodrow Wilson and Ulysses S. Grant. Next comes County Down, where St. Patrick settled. He landed on the shore of Strangford Lough in 442 AD and is believed to be buried at Downpatrick. All of the hotels and places to eat are detailed as well, plus the hikes, walking tours, bike trips, boat tours and more. Entertainment, shopping, how to get around, sightseeing and more are described as well. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicholas Patrella.

I´m the fat Puerto Rican - Polish girl who doesn´t feel like she belongs in her skin, or anywhere else for that matter. I´ve always been too much and yet not enough. Sugar Legowski-Gracia wasn´t always fat, but fat is what she is now at age seventeen. Not as fat as her mama, who is so big she hasn´t gotten out of bed in months. Not as heavy as her brother, Skunk, who has more meanness in him than fat, which is saying something. But she´s large enough to be the object of ridicule wherever she is: at the grocery store, walking down the street, at school. Sugar´s life is dictated by taking care of Mama in their run-down home - cooking, shopping, and, well, eating. A lot of eating, which Sugar hates as much as she loves. When Sugar meets Even (not Evan - his nearly illiterate father misspelled his name on the birth certificate), she has the new experience of someone seeing her and not her body. As their unlikely friendship builds, Sugar allows herself to think about the future for the first time, a future not weighed down by her body or her mother. Soon Sugar will have to decide whether to become the girl that Even helps her see within herself or to sink into the darkness of the skin-deep role her family and her life have created for her. 1.
