By way of introducing my listeners to a special world, often known only to the orthodox Chassidic Jewish community, I have selected to share my experiences as an eight-year-old American boy. I am the third of nine children, the oldest boy and named after my deeply Chassidic great-grandfather, Eliyahu. It was thought that in order for me to give honor to his name I should be exposed to the lifestyle he and his family lived. As a young child I was moved from a modern American orthodox home to my grandparents' home located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York. There I met a new type of Jew, Hungarian Jews, refugees from Europe. Many had their children born in "displaced person camps." They had just arrived with their families to New York after a hard-earned escape from the Russian suppression of Hungary in 1957. While living with my grandparents, called Upa and Uma, I learned how to live and dress in a Chassidic lifestyle. I learned to love my teacher, called Rebbe, and my classmates. In the 1950s, almost all of my classmates were children of the infamous Auschwitz deportees from Hungary. Most teachers had branded tattooed numbers on their arm, physical reminders of inhuman cruelties. I remember visiting a family with my Uma, and being told by the mother, "How lucky you are yingela, sonny-boy, that you have a father, a mother, a brother, a sister, uncles, aunts, and even grandparents. The only thing I have left from Germany is this!" She shoved her arm with the blue numbers in front of me. Other times, my Jewish teacher, a survivor of the camps, would cry in class, thinking of the suffering he and his family had experienced. Many of the school children were from second marriages. Either their father's or mother's first spouse had been killed. It wasn't uncommon for children to have half brothers and sisters who were 10 or 15 years older than they. 1. Language: English.

Connie Bischoff, Photographer: I was born and raised in the small town of Rocanville Saskatchewan. It was there I attended school Kindergarten to Grade 12. Uncle Romeo Lemieux was the French teacher at the school and I one of his students. Soon after graduation I moved to Saskatoon and then Edmonton, Alberta. It was here I met my very loving and handsome husband Murray Bischoff. We married and were blessed with two beautiful precious daughters Shaelyn and Nevada. We were on top of the world raising our girls and enjoying life as it unfolded beneath our feet. I was very fortunate to be able to stay at home for 9 years with the girls. I was ecstatic and elated when the girls were old enough to allow me to spread my wings once again into the working world! I landed a part time job and was soon recruited from that to one I thought I could only dream about-- finishing carpentry! I come from a long line of carpenters and wood workers and it is in my blood! As a little girl and growing up I always admired these skills in both my grandfathers Omer Lemieux and Louis Feist, my father Ken Lemieux, and many of my uncles! I poured my heart and soul into this job, took great pride and thoroughly knew I could do this for the rest of my life or so I thought. It was then my life, indeed, our family's life would face a dramatic turn of events! A work related injury took us all on a wild roller coaster and many horrific turn of events! I suffered nerve damage after a torn ulnar nerve in my left elbow. It soon developed into a rare neurological chronic pain disease, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome otherwise known as C.R.P.S or R.S.D! Our lives were all put to a test through the next ten years and almost ended tragically with the loss of my life 6 years ago! It was here a miracle occurred! God, my grandpa Omer in Heaven and Guardian Angel Uncle Romeo through prayer held my hand and led me back to Earth! It is here I want to say an added thank you to my very devoted team of medical professionals, family, friends and God's intervention of a miracle, as well as Friesen Press for the four years of patience while I sorted through my medical challenges and understanding of this horrific most painful and extremely challenging disease! In the first two years Uncle Romeo and I accidentally stumbled upon a dream-- the dream which you are holding in your hands now! Our dream was abruptly put on hold 8 years ago while the racetrack of survival almost ended in disaster! In January 2014 I was finally able to muster enough strength mentally and physically to complete 'the project' as we had called it from the beginning now titled 'Right sideUpside Down'. I hope you all enjoy 'the project' of two Artists that converged and combined 'his' writing interpretations and 'her' artistic photographer's interpretation between the covers of 'Right sideUpside Down'! I walk viewers to the edge of sorrow then dance one's mind to simple joy, love and faith. I transport the viewer to sit on the 'fence' of society, religion and everyday life! Dare one speak their opinions and inner truths of the Artist's interpretations!~~~PAUSE~~~I wait, I watch and then wait some more!~~~DETOUR AHEAD~~~An unannounced 'JOURNEY' to shake hands with the 'BRIGHT LIGHT'~~~RETURNING~~~To once again carry one's imagination within to daring and misunderstood and mysterious worlds! AMEN!puddincups...just me...the best that I can be...A.K.A Connie Bischoff...

Published after Charlotte Bronte's death in 1855, The Professor is unique in that it was the first book Bronte wrote, and the only one narrated by a male character, the scholarly William Crimsworth. William, orphaned at a young age, rejects the life of a clergyman his uncles choose for him and sets out on his own, eventually becoming a teacher at an all-girls school in Belgium. Once established there, he finds himself falling for a talented student, Frances, but their budding romance is threatened by petty jealousies. The final novel published by any of the famous Bronte sisters, The Professor was based partly on Charlotte's own experiences teaching in Belgium.

This work is about the genius named both Miguel de Villanueva and Michael Servetus - polymath, first european to describe Pulmonary circulation, defender of Tolerance, theologian and the only individual in history burnt at a stake by both Catholics and Protestants. There was not a single document about him before 1531, when he was already living in Basel (Germany). This book provides the first documents of Michael Servetus in Spain (13 new documents), and with these and other new documentation it attempts to reconstruct his youth and childhood years, in order to understand how his unique mind and personality were forged. The book is divided in two independent parts: The central part of the book is the most important, for it has the very documents of Servetus, indisputably. It starts by studying the marriage and family Serveto-Conesa who lived in Villanueva de Sigena, where Michael Servetus lived. The book corrects many errors concerning the genealogy of the wife's family, the number of children they had (not 2 but 7), their in-laws, their uncles, aunts and cousins, friends and business partners. It goes on to describe Michael Servetus's primary education in the nearby village of Sariñena, and his teacher at that Studium. The next chapter deals with the issue of Juan Quintana, Confessor of the Emperor and Michael Servetus's supposed mentor, and reveals this previously unknown cleric's family and origin. Preparing the ground for the main chapters, it studies the figure of master Gaspar Lax, who will become the High Master of Zaragoza Studium Generale of Arts. This primitive University of Zaragoza is deeply studied with many new documents, describing its mechanisms, appointments, hierarchy, privileges, salaries, taught subjects, rooms, and title acquisitions, and pays special attention to the figure of the four Masters of Arts, who were similar to professors in Arts. After having prepared the reader, the new documents of Servetus are presented, and the chapter deals course by course from 1520/1521 to 1526/1527 with the life at this University, its teachers, pupils and events. And it is at this moment when one can see for the first time Michael Servetus's life and evolution from student to one of the four Masters of Arts in the University. In this last section, the book's special focus is Michael Servetus's reason to have to leave Spain: he had a serious brawl with his relative Gaspar Lax, High Master, Vice chancellor and Rector of the University, a very influential man in the academic world, and this turned the Sigena family and the Spanish Universities against Michael Servetus, and so he had to leave to Toulouse's University. The last chapter of this central part the book studies erasmism in Zaragoza, -for Servetus was an erasmian- and reveals two unknown circles of erasmians in this city. The beginning and the end of the book - the other part - defend the notion that Michael Servetus alias Revés is actually a child we documented that was born in the proximity of the Tudela town in 1506, with a genital defect, son of Jewish converso parents to the De Villanueva name, and that he was later adopted by the family of Villanueva de Sigena, when his real parents were pursued by the Inquisition in 1515. In order to do that, all the leads shared by both individuals are presented for readers to judge by themselves, from same age, same genital defect, same defenders, same family name, common contacts in both areas, common connections with Lyon printer Gaspar Trechsel, and others.
