“..Michael Ende (www.michaelende.de) was born in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, in 1929. After attending drama school from 1948 to 1950, he worked variously as an actor, a writer of sketches and plays, a director of the Volkstheater in Munich, and a film critic for the Bavarian broadcasting company. His first novel for children, Jim Knopf and Lukas the Engine Driver, was published in Germany in 1960 to great popular and critical acclaim, and both radio and televsion series based on the Jim Knopf books were soon produced. In 1973 he published another award-winning children’s novel, Momo. When The Neverending Story was first published in Germany in 1979 it immediately became the number-one bestseller arnd remained in that position for three years. It has since been published in many different languages all over the world, including Japanese, and has enchanted readers in each country in which it has appeared…”

‘..I have a first edition already but I wanted a copy to gift to my niece. My biggest concern was whether the copy offered here had the red and green ink of the original I read so long ago. Trust me, it makes a difference. That is why I am here to confirm that the hardcover copy ordered from Amazon (not sure about other sellers) is indeed in color, with the full page chapter illustrations to boot…”

BOOK VS. FLICK: THE NEVERENDING STORY .syfy.com/
“…Despite its undisputed success and his initial excitement about the plans for the film, Ende ultimately grew to despise the adaptation, calling to cease production before filming had ended. The filmmakers did not, and he sued them. Ende lost the case, and was deeply embittered towards director Wolfgang Peterson and the studio that released The Neverending Story. Still, were the two versions really all that different? I read the book recently to compare.

Another “Street Sign”- Homeless Guy Story: What can we do to help them?

I live in an area in St. Paul where there is always some guy holding-up a sign or just standing there for a “handout’. I always feel convicted or “bad” when I passed them in my “comfortable” Toyota Corolla driving by. I was in the cities for a week vacation in the end of August (see month’s highlights) and I decided I wanted to something about this before I head back to Morris (we never see any people standing on the corners “begging” for a “helping hand”). I loaded my backpack with extra water bottles and had some food that I can give away in my trunk of my car. Well, as I was doing some errands before heading off on I-94 west to Morris, I did see a “homeless” guy. I then drove to the right side of the road and parked it with my “flashers” on. As I got out of my car, I see a police car coming my way. I didn’t worry as I felt I had some good intentions and thought I was legally parked. Well, I crossed the street to the “homeless guy”. I approached him with a bag of bread rolls and a “fresh” bottle of water. I then introduced myself and explained why I stopped. I told him as a Christian, I wanted to help him. I told him the quick saying “You give a man a fish and it’ll last a day, but if I teach you how to fish-it’ll last a lifetime”. I then pointed to my bread and water, which I told him this will last for a meal or a day. I then gave him a Bible tract (Mana-Bread is the Word…), which I explained to him that this will help you for a life-time. I was worried about parked car on the side of the road, so I told him I have to go and encouraged him by saying God loves him. His name was Ernest. As I went into my car, I noticed him looking back at me with peace and I drove off praying for Ernest as I headed down the entry ramp going west on I-94.

Man Offers To Buy Homeless Man Coffee, But Helps Change His Life Instead… Stefan Armitage viralthread.com
“…Adam’s story begins just like many of our mornings do; on his usual run to the nearby Starbucks for a cup of coffee. However, outside the store, something had always played on Adam’s mind, and after weeks of regularly swallowing his guilt, Adam decided to act…..

“…Adam’s words express his anger at the system; “We’ve all heard someone say ‘why don’t they just get a job?’ or ‘they’re lazy.’ I saw firsthand how the “system” is set up to fail people like Tarec. There is no way he would have been able to do any of this without my help. Just like there are many things in my life I have needed someone to help me overcome an obstacle. We all need a little help.”….
Tech sales rep lands homeless man a job at Safeway Updated:Feb 02 2017 08:07PM PST ktvu.com
“…”I didn’t have somewhere I could rest my head at night, where I could clean up and smell properly, represent myself on the job. From there it went back down,” he said.

The lesson August says he learned: Sometimes it takes more than a job to get out of homelessness.

He has set up a Gofundme page to raise money so Tarec can get an apartment, then perhaps a job.

“If you don’t have a home it is build anything on top of that,” August said.

“I am very optimistic to see something change in my situation,” said Tarec.

And his friend still believes in him…”

“..He still lives in a tent next to highway 101 in Marin City. The rain has made life even tougher for Tarec. He still spends most of his days alone or hanging out at Starbucks. The employees and customers treat him well. It’s hard not to. The warmth in this guy’s heart is palpable.

As for the job. Safeway did indeed offer Tarec a job and we celebrated that news with ice cream. I thought we had a happy ending and a new beginning for Tarec. I was wrong. I failed and I truly apologize if anyone feels misled. With that said, TOGETHER we have an opportunity to write a happy ending and give Tarec a new shot at life.

In retrospect, I didn’t fully understand the impossible nature of having and keeping a job with no place to call home. In an effort to find Tarec a home, I visited Homeward Bound and met with their executive director, Mary Kay Sweeney, a real life angel. She taught me “a healthy home is the foundation for a prosperous life”.

We’ve come full circle.

Tarec is still homeless and jobless, but not hopeless. And because of YOU neither am I. I can’t emphasize this enough. The thousands of comments and messages I have received over the past few months has inspired me to finish what I started. Change a man’s life. Now with thousands of my closest friends, we can accomplish that together.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your kindness and support.

In Silicon Valley, a hub of computer and technology companies, some people are even turning to cars, vans and RVs for housing.
