    Build Stronger Muscles Bundle, 2 in 1 Bundle: Muscle for Life and Starting StrengthIf you’re like many people, you have a hard time building muscle. You’ve tried every supplement and muscle-building workout routine that promised big, fast gains, but you’re still just as scrawny as the day you decided to start building muscle. There are a few reasons why it’s so hard to build muscle. The first thing that most people do wrong is approach it with the wrong mindset. To put things shortly, in order to build muscle like you want, you need to create a muscle-building lifestyle and really get your head in the game. At that point, muscle-building becomes something more than what you do when you go to the gym. Another misconception is that in order to build muscle and bulk up, the only thing they need to do is lift weights and that's it. If you only lift weights, chances are you would not be getting the results you were looking for. There is so much more involved in bodybuilding than lifting weights. You have to consider nutrition, supplementation, training and a whole lifestyle change.This bundle will teach you about all the essentials in order for you to build muscle mass and keep it that way. Once you have all the information you need, it would help you create a comprehensive plan you can execute. This 2 in 1 bundle includes the following audiobooks:1.

    “Inside, you’ll find hamburger and sausage gravies, seafood Wellington, even a section on how to can bacon . . . [Moore] knows what she’s talking about.” —Vice, “A Beginner’s Guide to Doomsday Prepper Cookbooks” 
     
    In a survival situation, fictional or real, there are certain components that are necessary to consider that will insure getting to the other side. 
     
    Regardless of the disaster, one must have food, water and shelter in order to live. Taking that just a bit further, you must have food and a means to cook it, water and a means to make it potable, and shelter and a means of heating it. 
     
    Deborah D. Moore has been a Prepper for most of her life, long before the term was popular. She believes in being prepared to winter in during the long cold months that the Upper Peninsula of Michigan has to endure. An entire room in her small house is devoted to food and supply storage. She has a well for water, plus a filtration system in the event she has to use creek or rain water. Since her house is small it’s easy to heat with the wood cook stove that at the same time gives her a means of cooking and baking. 
     
    Author Deborah D. Moore will take you on a fun, step by step journey to recreate the same meals she makes every day using only what she has stored in her pantry.

    The story of the Potomac is the story of America—take a historic hike with this fascinating guide.   The great Potomac River begins in the Alleghenies and flows 383 miles through some of America's most historic lands before emptying into the Chesapeake Bay. The course of the river drove the development of the region and the path of a young republic. Maryland's first Catholic settlers came to its banks in 1634 and George Washington helped settle the new capital on its shores. During the Civil War the river divided North and South, and it witnessed John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry and the bloody Battle of Antietam.    In this book, Garrett Peck leads readers on a journey down the Potomac, from its first fount at Fairfax Stone in West Virginia to its mouth at Point Lookout in Maryland. Combining history with recreation, Peck has written an indispensible guide to the nation's river.

    The second of two volumes covering the history of tramcar operation in Glasgow. The book narrates the story of the city’s impressive network from the immediate post-war years, when the system was regarded as one of the most secure in the country, through the 1950s, when a change of policy initially saw a limited conversion policy instituted before complete abandonment was adopted, to the early 1960s when the final services were operated. This volume focuses on locations in the northern half of the city including City Centre, Clydebank, Keppochhill Road and University.

    I have had the idea of writing a book for a while now, and the beauty of the Internet is that anyone can put their work out there - websites, workout videos, books - freely without having to navigate through the traditional gatekeepers of self-expression. The most important part of putting this out is your response; I know I can get a lot better at this writing thing, and your critiques will be my first step in doing so. What you are about to hear is my story as a basketball player - only as it pertains to basketball - from the time I began playing the game up to and through my college years. It is to be hoped that you find it interesting, insightful, descriptive, and entertaining. If so, you should tell me. If you don't, I want to know about that too, and why. Speak your mind. Enjoy. #WOYG
