    When tanks, the newly invented British weapon, were used for the first time in a mass attack on November 20 1917, they not only achieved one of the most remarkable successes of the First World War but set the pattern for the future of mechanized warfare.  For the first time in three years of bloody trench warfare, epitomized by the slaughter at Passchendaele which was then reaching its climax, tanks brought about a breakthrough of the massive German defense system of the Hindenburg Line, followed up by British infantry and cavalry divisions.  They were supported for the first time by low flying fighter aircraft of the Royal Flying Corps.  The initial victory at Cambrai brought cheering crowds into the streets of London and the ringing of church bells in celebration.  In seemed possible that the success might bring about the final defeat of Germany.  But the British High Command failed to exploit the success.  Generals who still dreamt of massive cavalry charges had not had much faith in this strange new weapon that had been brought to them  funded initially by the Royal Navy at the behest of Winston Churchill who was then First Lord of the Admiralty and did see its value.  The High Command did not really believe the breakthrough was possible and tragically miscalculated the necessary steps to follow it up.  Within days the Germans counterattacked and regained much of the ground that the British had won.  What could have been the final victory was delayed for another year.

    Growing Season: The Ultimate Guide on Green Agriculture, Learn About Organic and Sustainable Agriculture and the Benefits of Growing Your Own FoodRegrettably, your tasty burger and perfectly salted fries might be part of a bigger and much bigger damaging effect on the environment. It causes water pollution, air pollution, dead areas, and industrial food production consumes so much power. You've heard it time and again: purchase locally. Here's why: purchasing local cuts back on something known as "food miles," or how far your food has been transported. The berries you purchase at the market might have been air-freighted from Chile, which implies those yummy treats have a huge carbon footprint. On average, produce in the U.S. travels anyplace from 1,300 to 2,000 miles from the farm to the market. Organic farming aims to downplay environmental impact with techniques like crop rotation, compost, biological instead of chemical pest control, and green instead of synthetic fertilizers. If crops are rotated, there's no need for additives. This audiobook will discuss green agriculture and organic farming and going green. This audiobook will discuss the following topics:- What Does Going Green With Food Mean- What Is Sustainable Agriculture- What Is Organic Agriculture- The Difference Between “Natural” Foods And “Organic” Foods- The Benefits Of Growing Your Own Food- Planning An Environmentally Friendly Garden- Finding “Green” Farmers In Your Area- Final Tips- And many more!If you eat organic, don't simply picture the healthy food you're placing in your body, picture the sound ecosystems which raised that food, the workers who are safer from chemicals, the land, water, and air that's getting protected, and the wildlife that's being allowed to prosper.

    The first two memoirs in the New York Times–bestselling series from an English veterinarian—and the basis for the Masterpiece series on PBS.  All Creatures Great and Small: In the rolling dales of Yorkshire—a simple, rural region of Northern England—a young veterinarian from Sunderland joins a new practice. A stranger in an unfamiliar land, James Herriot must quickly learn the odd dialect and humorous ways of the locals, master outdated equipment, and do his best to mend, treat, and heal pets and livestock alike.  All Things Bright and Beautiful: After his first day on the job, Herriot’s mentor warns him that the life of a country veterinarian is full of small triumphs and big disasters, but that he’d never be bored. From night visits to drafty barns during freezing Northern England winters to the beautiful vitality of rural life in the summertime to the colorful menagerie of animals—and their owners—that pass through his office, Herriot experiences new challenges and joys every day. In these pages, Herriot trains under his eccentric boss in a rustic English village, courts the woman that becomes his wife, and meets the people he would come to write about for a lifetime.   This witty and heartwarming collection, based on the author’s own experiences, became an international success, winning over animal lovers everywhere. Perhaps better than any other writer, Herriot reveals the ties that bind us to the creatures in our lives.  Praise for All Creatures Great and Small:   “One of the funniest and most likeable books around.” —The Atlantic   “Refreshingly original . . . Hilarious, touching, athletic and warming . . . Dr. Herriot’s characters . . . rival any from British fiction.” ―Los Angeles Times

    Everyone has a legitimate desire to have a better life.  Having a better life could mean different things to different people.  What a man considers to be a better life may be different from what a woman considers to be a better.  Also, what a young person considers a better life would be different from what an older person considers a better life.  For a young person in their 20s, better life could mean having many materials things (car, house, clothes, money, etc.) which they believe would make them happy.
    
    For older people, a 'better life" for  them would be living their dream with lots of passion, lots of laughter and love, which of course brings happiness to them. Not a material thing in sight! Even though our definition of what a better life is can change over the years, the steps we take to how we can attain that "better life" doesn't really change. As Elbert Hubbard said, a sculptor creates the beautiful statue through a process of chipping away the parts of the marble that are not needed. This process of elimination is what we need to take on board as we try to eliminate those things that we do which prevent us from attaining a "better life for ourselves".
    
    No matter your age or gender, and whatever "better life" means to you, you can attain that legitimate desire by chipping away those parts of your life that are not needed.  Also, if you do want to create change in your life, get clear on the definition of what a better life is for YOU. This will help you identify the key things that you need to STOP DOING so that you can have a better life.
