Elephant Company: The Inspiring Story of an Unlikely Hero and the Animals Who He

The Inspiring Story of an Unlikely Hero and the Animals Who Helped Him Save Lives in World War II

 

One of the BEST books ever! It's about a young Englishman who goes to Africa to work with elephants in the teak wood industry. It's really enlightening on that topic. Then World War II happens. He is now married and continues to be in the service for WWII. This inside information on the important role that elephants played in the victory of WWII in Africa is amazing.

This is a very, very nice movie starring Hugh Grant. Hugh Grant is maturing and aging very gracefully and is still a pleasure to listen to and watch. I enjoyed this DVD and I think you will too.

A brilliant and funny story of a small fishing village on an island that needs to "recruit or procure" a new doctor for the residents. So they locate a Big City doctor who they talk into taking the position. The story of how he relates to such extreme living and practicing medicine there is great. The scenery is gorgeous.

Minding the Manor

The Memoir of a 1930s English Kitchen Maid

 

This is a really interesting book, kind of like Downton Abbey, only all real. A fun read full of facts of the household "goings-on," the staff or help, and the family from the author's memories of life as a young kitchen maid (or scullery maid) in 1930s England. It includes Mollie's rise to become a cook. The book also describes the lovely villages and area in England and contains lots of insight of life in pre-WWII England. The lady who wrote this book was in her 90s and she is brilliant!
