There’s nothing quite like a relationship with an aged pet—a dog or cat who has been at our side for years, forming an ineffable bond. Pampered pets, however, are a rarity among animals who have been domesticated. Farm animals, for example, are usually slaughtered before their first birthday. We never stop to think about it, but the typical images we see of cows, chickens, pigs, and the like are of young animals. What would we see if they were allowed to grow old? Isa Leshko shows us, brilliantly, with this collection of portraits. To create these portraits, she spent hours with her subjects, gaining their trust and putting them at ease. The resulting images reveal the unique personality of each animal. It’s impossible to look away from the animals in these images as they unforgettably meet our gaze, simultaneously calm and challenging. In these photographs we see the cumulative effects of the hardships of industrialized farm life, but also the healing that time can bring, and the dignity that can emerge when farm animals are allowed to age on their own terms. Each portrait is accompanied by a brief biographical note about its subject, and the book is rounded out with essays that explore the history of animal photography, the place of beauty in activist art, and much more. Open this book to any page. Meet Teresa, a thirteen-year-old Yorkshire Pig, or Melvin, an eleven-year-old Angora Goat, or Tom, a seven-year-old Broad Breasted White Turkey. You’ll never forget them.

FEEL WELL, FEEL FIT - WHATEVER YOUR AGE! Why do so many of us believe that growing older means we must accept a gradual loss of health and wellbeing? In this ground-breaking new book, respected health practitioner Anne-Lise Miller shows why we don't need to accept that ageing and worsening health go hand-in-hand. Minor ailments such as 'brain fog', feeling tired, headaches, sleeplessness, constipation, aching joints, weight gain and low libido are common symptoms that many of us consider inevitable as we grow older. But if allowed to continue they can lead to more serious problems such as diabetes, dementia, heart disease and cancer. Anne-Lise Miller is a nutritionist and complementary health therapist of 30 years' experience. She challenges the myth that we must accept the 'symptoms of age' and explains precisely how we can take control of our own good health. This book is the result of her hundreds of clients begging her to write a book about her systemic approach to health. STAY YOUNG, VIBRANT & HEALTHY In this book Anne-Lise Miller: -Challenges the belief that health wanes with age. -Explores how our emotions affect our health and wellbeing. -Demonstrates how taking control of our health brings extraordinary rewards. -Gives detailed plans and juice recipes for detoxing your liver, kidneys and gall bladder. -Provides recipes and juice combinations for healthy heart, prostate, and brain, plus foods to improve memory, and to relieve symptoms of the menopause "This book is a tour de force; a rich blend of ancient wisdom and modern science."

Intimate confessions and spit-your-dentures-out hilarious commentary – this is observational comedy at its best. How to Grow Old is a stupid title, because the answer is obvious: Don’t Die. Provided you don’t die, you are growing old. Don’t come to this book under any illusions. It isn’t going to tell you how to stay alive any longer. It won’t help you understand the aging process from a sociological and anthropological perspective, and I’m not sure how much practical advice you’re going to get. However, if you happen to want to know what a white, heterosexual, middle-aged man thinks of getting old – from the struggle to stay fit, keep hold of your friends or stay relevant, to why I’m better at doing a dump now than at any time in my life – this book could very well be exactly what you have been looking for. You might even find it a bit funny.

In this warm, sensitive, fact-filled book, Paul Tournier deals specifically with many aspects of aging: society's attitude towards the elderly; second careers; the quality of life; financial difficulties; boredom; health; loneliness; and facing death. He believes we must all learn to grow old, and that the process is most successfully accomplished when we prepare and plan for it throughout life. Tournier offers a variety of suggestions to help make growing old not an end but a new beginning, filled with purpose and hope. He suggests ways to remain active and to use leisure to its best advantage without letting it become a tyrant. He also provides insights on taking up new interests, such as becoming involved with young people and new ideas, and learning to pray, to meditate, to acquire wisdom, and to draw increasing strength and inspiration from the reality of divine presence and power.

The arrival, one sunny morning, of pale green wall-to-wall carpeting for the living room is the crowning jewel in Karen Whitney's long-anticipated transformation of her house into a beautiful home, renovated to the exacting standards of her own impeccable taste. The banal finality of this event triggers an introspective voyage through the events of her life and how she became who she is: wife of business executive Rick, citizen of the suburb of Rowanwood, mother to two accomplished daughters in university. Before Betty Friedan coined the term feminine mystique, The Torontonians told a classic feminist story of suburban ennui and existential self-discovery, tracing a detailed portrait of femininity in the 1950s through the eyes of its perceptive and thoughtful heroine. The book is also a unique contemporary meditation on community and social ties from a time when Canada's major cities were just beginning to spread out into suburban sprawl.

With more than 2,500 illustrations, this is a do-it-yourselfer’s dream and a treasure trove of traditional information. It includes an overview of wood and how to choose the right type for specific projects, along with detailed descriptions of both common and unusual hand tools, with tips for their use. (Where else can you learn about the “Donkey’s-ear Shooting Block,” a screw vice, a grinding gouge, various handsaws, and augers?) Most importantly, there’s a wealth of knowledge on crafting almost anything using only hand tools: tables, desks, gates, a revolving bookcase, a linen chest, greenhouses, porches, birdhouses, and so much more. Useful for both amateurs and master craftsmen, this might be the most thorough guide to traditional woodworking available.

First published in 1969 and out of print for more than twenty-five years, The Long-Legged House was Wendell Berry's first collection of essays, the inaugural work introducing many of the central issues that have occupied him over the course of his career. Three essays at the heart of this volume The Rise, The Long-Legged House, and A Native Hill are essays of homecoming and memoir, as the writer finds his home place, his native ground, his place on earth. As he later wrote, €œWhat I stand for is what I stand on, and here we see him beginning the acts of rediscovery and resettling.

This book offers a new and compendious account of important verbal patterns in present-day English. Serving as a central source of data, it updates and refines earlier research contributing to the syntactic and semantic description of English. Rudanko establishes an original framework, and systematically analyzes patterns of complementation using the tool of case grammar. The examination of Control, or EQUI, is a common theme and an important problem for transformationalists, and English syntacticians will value Rudanko's work on infinitive complements.
