The latest book in the Positively For Kids series is Have Heart - the autobiography of David Eckstien, the shortstop for the Anaheim Angels. In David Eckstein's book, the pint-sized shortstop of the Angels talks about beating the odds to make it to the Major Leagues.

This book has several great stories, life lessons and special photos of David Eckstein's early days on the baseball field.

    More than anything. She's amazing and so gorgeous. I liked her before the movie, though. I liked her when she played in The Secret Life of The American Teenager. Plus she's going to be in the movie 'The Fault In Our Stars'.

But you have the United States Government to thank for that and the law it created.Because that is why our users are suffering. Because of the law that is in place. We wish it didn't have to be that way, trust me. It is awful see words blocked that shouldn't.But we follow the law and always will. Thanks for not locking this thread. It's appreciated.  Nice underline on the word "actual".  I've tried being positive and friendly and have given suggestions this way.  Doesn't work.  I just get ignored and deleted.  Being negative seems to work better so that's what I've been doing.  Oh, and calling me an attention seeker is a smart way to get out of answering my complaints about the P&R section.
