Formally a weekly column, Funny Side Up was so well received it was put into anthology form, and is still running by demand in reprints. The book, a great morning read with coffee, can be read at coffee break or hectic periods during stressful days. There is a strong chance you will read it through 'til the end in one sitting, because you can not get enough of this belly-laugh, page-turner. The stories, as quoted by the famous author and humorist Richard Armour, are "timely, but not timeless, and close to universal experiences, out-doing the many tired elements around today." You will insist Al had been lurking around your house for his material. Funny Side Up is a book you can leave on your coffee table and not be ashamed to have your kids or visitors read. Al Squitieri, father of ten, is a writer more than one editor called "the male Erma Bombeck." Read him and laugh yourself silly.

Aging is a serious business that combines memory lapses with cholesterol counts and fixed incomes. In Funny Side Up, a former columnist for the Mobile Press Register shares a collection of unabashed, unapologetic short stories that provide an amusing glimpse into the whirlwind life and opinions of a typical senior citizen living in the twenty-first century. Through exaggerated satire, Varnado offers a variety of tales with a potpourri of characters and events that detail the yearly visit of a cigar-smoking guardian angel whose unrealistic optimism drives him insane; a wifes heroic campaign against the machinations of the banking industry; and an encounter with Rasputin Bloodworthy, car dealer extraordinaire. All this combined with an investigation into the political correctness of Santa Claus, a cholesterholic who has a sudden urge for a candy bar, and three stooges who want nothing more than to cap the BP oil spill makes for an unforgettable look into the bizarre entities that accompany the cockamamie journey into senior citizenship. Funny Side Up mixes nostalgia with a giant dose of humor as a senior citizen shares a hilarious tales of learning to survive in a modern world.

The Calmanifesto of Happiness 'One of the kindest people I have ever met - a beautiful dancer and a beautiful person' Kevin Clifton 'Be good, be kind, be more like Susan Calman' Kirstie Allsopp 'Be kind to yourself - read this book, keep it on your bedside table or on your Kindle - even Kindle has the word kind in it' Sandi Toksvig 'Full of wisdom and humour, with the soft underbelly of the profound' Fi Glover 'It's a warm, funny and delightful book that is sure to cheer even the grumpiest curmudgeon in your life' Woman and Home Susan Calman's enthusiasm at being on Strictly Come Dancing was an inspiration to all of us. Cheer Up Love, Susan's first book, had a clear aim: to help people understand depression. Sunny Side Up has a similarly clear path: to persuade people to be kinder to each other and spread more joy. These are extremely difficult and confusing times - people are cross and shouty. It's exhausting! But more than anything, people like Susan, people who don't hate other people, are apologising for the way that they think. Susan wants to make sure that they don't. She wants them to know that it's ok to love people and that kindness is something wonderful and brilliant. Above all, she wants them to bring on the joy. So the mission is simple. To get the nation to join her in not being negative. To bring back joy, kindness and community, to find that joy in the little things in life and defeat the hate and fear. Susan is a one-woman army of hope and joy, and she's ready to lead the nation in a different direction.

Behind the white walls of the pueblos of southern Spain you will find more drama and passion than you could ever imagine. All human life is here, in all its varieties — as British journalist David Baird and his Dutch wife found out when they settled in an Andalusian village, seeking "the simple life". Sunny Side Up may read like fiction, but it’s all fact. It’s the Spain that Hemingway never saw and never wrote about.
They went up one side and then down the other. After a couple of trips, she spotted David standing in a doorway looking at her. He was very upset when she told him she just wanted him to take her and her friend in the bar so they could ...

Looking for those sunny side up eggs in life? It doesn’t always pan out that way. Life is similar to eggs in that it can turn out so differently, depending on preparation. This story is about Elaine, her husband Richard, their daughter Mira, granddaughter Leslie and their egg-like situations. Elaine’s life is runny, sometimes totally scrambled, and at times cracked, like a hardboiled egg. Richard’s life is an omelet; it doesn’t matter what is put into it, he remains clueless. Mira was on a continuous hunt for the easy over, soft life. Once out of her shell she finally discovered life can be sunny side up. Leslie turns from poached softly, to overcooked, hard as rubber. This story starts out with Mira’s birth but pushes back time to look at the tragic life of her mother, Elaine, and the sad moments of her father Richard.
