Introduction

Thank you for acquiring this book. It is the hope of the author that with this gardening guide, readers will be equipped with the necessary knowledge and information to establish and manage a courtyard mushroom plot. Truth be told, not everyone you will meet, will appreciate the value of mushrooms the way you do. Also, this isn't just because of ignorance; the truth is that most people do not know or have not yet heard of the countless benefits of mushrooms‐ For example; do you know that there are certain species of mushrooms that can produce dyes?

Being a fungus, not all mushrooms are edible; furthermore, the different species of mushrooms that are edible also produce different effects in the human body after consumption. Nowadays mushrooms are utilized extensively by chefs all over the world when preparing cuisines or dishes. Mushrooms are also becoming a commodity of interest in most groceries as well as supermarkets and farmer's markets.

Poisonous and toxic varieties of mushrooms have been discussed in order to educate the reader on the dangers that they pose if eaten. Moreover, those with psychoactive properties have also been discussed. In view of the last statement, please note that some jurisdictions do not allow the cultivation of certain mushroom species, so if you are interested in growing a particular species, make sure that you verify with the local administration.

Lastly, this mushroom farming guide has been written to enlighten both the readers who just seek for information as well as those who actually want to practice mushroom farming. It has been written in a casual yet decent manner in order to keep the reader entertained as well as informed. 
Enjoy!

Introduction

May we get the jobs of our dreams. Away from slave driver boss. Away from tiresome clients. Away from deadly deadlines. Very very impressive pay packet. Four-day work week. Vacations for two months every year. Medical insurance, retirement bonus, 200% salary increase every Christmas…
Lead me to such a job! But alas, this is a pipe dream.

If you are an employer or a boss, this book is not for you because you know everything about interviewing future employees! You have been involved in a large number of interviews during your career as being the boss and throwing your weight around. This book is for all of those people, who are looking for their dream jobs, and still do not manage to make the grade.

This book is of course written by a person who has been on the right side of the interviewing table, a number of times, so of course I can tell you all about the sort of questions asked to you by your employer, and what they expect from you. Sometimes you have to read the body language of the employer to see whether he is going of taking an interview just because he has to do so because he has already chosen the right candidate – his wife’s cousin’s brother-in-law’s nephew – to be inducted in the firm right then.

And of course, at the very beginning of my career, I had to go through a large number of interviews, so I can tell you about how best to ace your interview, each time, every time.

Introduction

One is going to wonder why a book needed to be written on business etiquette, especially if you are already working, and you know the rules and regulations, which are followed by every employee in your particular organization. But this is a reminder that there are some tips and techniques, of business etiquette, which we overlook, because possibly we did not know about them, and also possibly because a newer management did not think of implementing these particular business etiquette tips in our working environment, taking into view the 21st century business atmosphere.

These business etiquette tips are as effective today, as they were when they were implemented in factories, offices, and other work stations, more than 80 years ago and not only are they practical, but they also have plenty of good common sense and horse sense used in their making.

So it does not matter whether you are an employer or an employee. This book is useful for everyone who has taken up a job sometime or somewhere during his lifetime, and wondered about proper etiquette, which nowadays may come under the very un-flexible heading of “rules which have to be followed By All the Employees, Strictly.”
A happy enterprise is one, where flexibility of rules except in matters of discipline and the professional working of the employees on a daily day to day basis is relax somewhat according to circumstances, situations, or taking into view a particular scenario at a particular moment in the day to day working of a normal working day at the office.

You are going to say that many of these etiquette ideas are outdated, especially when you are not following them in your own particular business environment, or possibly country, for the past couple of generations. But taking all these points in a global context, you need to understand that there are plenty of places all over the world where office codes of behavior and etiquette are still followed in a manner which you would deem old-fashioned and old-school. Naturally, some tips are based on manners, which come under the heading of social etiquette. Others have been modified in keeping with the business environment of today, globally.

Also, you may say why I have added a large number of my own experiences, most of them rather funny, but then this is going to introduce you to another working culture, far different from the one in your own city, town or country. So you may enjoy the experiences and feel amused at them. Also, all of them are hundred percent true, so these things can happen and often do happen, especially in the life and interesting times of yours truly.

Introduction


When we were kids at school, and were living in a land, where we were taught crafts at school, as part of the educational curriculum, under the term of socially useful productive work, I remember some parents getting rather indignant, because their children were being taught how to work in leather! 


Being a rather socially backward area, steeped in old tradition and also the traditional working professions fit for different people of different ethnicities and castes, these supposedly highborn families would not allow their children to work on anything, which included touching any material made out of pigskin, calfskin, and hide. These items were considered to be touched only by the lowest of the low, the untouchables. 


They were the cobblers, who made things in leather, and people, supposedly of the highest caste never wore items made out of these natural products. That is why their shoes were always made out of wood and no way would they use leather belts, purses, bags, ornaments, jackets, or any other things which other people could wear with impunity.


Believe it or not, this system worked in the East, for millenniums, but luckily, today we are fortunate because we are not so old-fashioned and also, we do not believe in such outmoded traditions, and that is why we can enjoy one of the most enjoyable of all activities, working with leather and making your own accessories, which otherwise, would set you back hundreds of dollars, if you went and bought them off the shelves.


Believe me, if you are under the impression that working with leather is very difficult, it is definitely not so. If you have pushed a needle and thread, through a piece of fabric, you can consider leather to be just another fabric. It may be a bit harder to work on, but if the thread has been asked with ordinary candle wax, and your needle is sharp, there is absolutely no problem in stitching leather, and absolutely no limits to the things you can make out of leather. People have been doing so for millenniums, from jewelry to pouches to bags, to moccasins and shoes, to anything you want to make, which is going to be long-lasting and a thing to treasure.

So let us assemble our equipment first. There are plenty of leather making kits, on the Internet, but with their totally absurd prices of up to $225, surely, surely you are not going to waste all your money on buying such a case or kit, unless of course you want to become a traditional leather worker, and intend to sell the things you make?


Leather is normally made from the skin of animals. The whole skin is sold, and the portion of the back is stronger and thicker than the one at the edges. That is why, when you begin cutting shapes in leather, you would want to look at the thickness beforehand. The easiest to work with are leathers obtained from goats and sheep.


Sheepskin leather – this is of course the cheapest, because it is so easily available, and that is why many people do plenty of embroidery work upon so that it looks more expensive.

Introduction

When I was studying at the local management college, more than 3 decades ago, one of our professors told us students, “You may become senior ranking managers, as you get promoted to higher ranks in your jobs, but if you do not know how to write an impressive, businesslike, and thoroughly professional business letter, you are going to go nowhere on the ladder to the top.”

Many of us coughed rather sheepishly, because according to us, we were already managers in our minds’ eye, and we had a secretary to take our dictation, shorthand, and rightly business letter for us. 

Naturally, we woke up to reality soon after, when we began to work on our different jobs, and often we had to take care of the correspondence ourselves. Some of the letters were too confidential to be handed over to the office typing pool. This was way back in the late eighties and early nineties, when letters were still written by hand, and sent by mail. 

We did not know that within the next 15 years, the whole world would be tied up with an electronic network, and correspondence would be done by tapping on a keyboard on a desktop screen.

Also, this book is not restricted to letter writing to people in your own country or area. In this millennial world today, your job is to expand your horizons and that is why, this book is going to tell you all about writing letters in a global context. Also, you are going to be told something about cultures and traditions, and business environments of other lands and people, which may look strange to you, but that is the way business writing has been done for millenniums, according to their culture, standard of literacy, and society.

Many people who are not quite well versed with office etiquette are under the impression that letter writing is something not very important because after all, you are messaging your clients, or you have one stereotyped format, which you send out as acknowledgment for every email sent to your company, with a paragraph telling the client that he is going to be contacted by somebody in the next 12 – 24 hours, and thank you for getting in touch with us. The mail, of course, has a do not reply address on top.

You may think that this is a pretty nifty and modern way of tracking your correspondence, but in many parts of the world, where business dealings and environments are still pretty old-fashioned, a well-written letter is quite impressive, especially when the receiver makes his first impression on your correspondence, especially when it is a first-time letter to his company. I remember, way back in 87, when I was at university, in a comparatively small town, and went to the market, to buy some handmade traditional shoes, for which that particular town was famous all over the country. They did not speaking English, there.

Introduction

Christmas is a coming, as well as Hanukkah, and as it is the time and season of goodwill and Peace unto All, and blessings upon one and all, you would want to give plenty of gifts to your near and dear ones. 

For many of us, who are so busy in the rat race of day to day living, for them, giving gifts equals to going to the nearest store, and buying lots and lots of things, which they can afford or they cannot afford, while ticking the names off the future receivers, from their lists.
Some are lucky enough to tell their secretaries, all right, Ms, or Mrs. XYZ, could you do my Christmas shopping the next time you go around the stores? A majority of men. I have noticed, under this category because seriously speaking, I have not found any man of my acquaintance who really enjoy spending lots and lots of time, shopping, especially in hectic crowds. They just enter a shop, look around, look at the crowds, go to the nearest shelf, pick up whatever is present on that shelf, and get out as fast as they can. And I am not joking!

On the other hand, teenagers, ladies, and children love to spend lots and lots of time just browsing through shops, looking for best bargains, haggling over prices, – this is a necessary part of the shopping ritual in many parts of the world, even today – and asking the people around them, whether this item or that item is a better buy, especially when one is buying accessories!

But in this book, I am going to teach you how to make gifts, right at home. And the joy of adding another skill to your repertoire of skills is going to make you feel warm, throughout the holiday season.

It is November now, and you have a whole month, to make these amazing gifts, right at home. I am going to give you tips and techniques as well as points, which you are going to implement, especially when you say to yourself, why did not I think of this before.

Some of these projects include a little bit of cookery including baking and making chocolates. You may also want to know how to make beauty products, full of natural ingredients. And perhaps you may want to keep these gifts for yourself because they look so good, smell so good, and best of all, taste so good.

So enjoy the holiday season, and know that it is much blessed to give than to receive! Also, enjoy this book, because it has been made with lots of mirth, good cheer, and fun. The gifts that you are going to make, were demonstrated by my more experienced friends, while I took photos, and occasionally lend a helping hand so that I could say truly, with hand on heart, hey, I made them – when actually it is, I helped in their making – and others were my own projects, where I used to stop midway, in the process to take a snap. That is why, if you think this book to be more like a DIY project book with the instructions given like they do in wiki – how at least that is going to show you where you are going right, especially in the step-by-step instructions!
So cheers!
