Walesby Forest is situated just north of Nottingham. Encompassing 250 acres of woodlands, the site sits on the ancient edge of the historic Sherwood Forest, with a river and a cave said to be the hiding place of Robin Hood. Feeling a strong sense of moral duty to capture some of Walesby Forest’s history, Andrew Luczko was keen to mark this historic landmark with something that would benefit the site both now and for future generations. He wrote Seventy-Five Years of ‘Being Prepared’: A History of Walesby Forest, Nottinghamshire 1938-2013 in an effort to record key events, decisions, changes and personalities that have moulded this beautiful, unspoiled piece of North Nottinghamshire over the last 75 years. Luczko was captivated by Walesby Forest at the age of 10, when he visited the site for the first time, and he hopes that this book will go on to inspire many others who encounter the fantastic setting with its forest, meandering river and stunning lake. His book highlights the many challenges the area has faced over the years, including financial difficulties, WWII bombs, fires, flooding, closure due to the national Foot & Mouth epidemic and a Right to Roam challenge. Probaby the greatest surprise is an unexpected link to a potential source of Shakespeare’s work, in the form of Sir Francis Bacon. The book is also an opportunity to share what has been achieved under the 75-year ownership of the forest by the City of Nottingham Scouts. It has been no easy task and continues to create problems and challenges that you might expect from a 250-acre facility with a wide choice of accommodation, buildings and activities. Seventy-Five Years of ‘Being Prepared’ adopts a chronological order and gives an insight into the issues that have been faced since the site was sold as part of the sell-off by the Rufford Abbey Estate in 1938. It comes right up to date with the current projects of 2013 and hopes for the future. It makes a great read for any former visitor of the site, those interested in Robin Hood and local history and any skeptics of the origination of Shakespeare’s works.

Being Prepared, From Cub Scout to Leader is the biography of Adrian Coles through his life in Scouting from the first moment he joined Cub Scouts to present day as a Cub Leader about to become Scout Leader.
Most people spend more time each day preparing to go to bed then they do preparing for the final act of their lives which is death. We spend more time figuring out the answers to questions that will be posed by a teacher or boss than we do to the Supreme Judge who will ask for an account of our lives. We spend more time worrying and planning for the “what ifs” in life than we do over the assured events that will happen upon our departure from this life. What would happen if we were to spend half the time used preparing for this temporal life to prepare for eternal life? This book invites you to prepare for the greatest adventure of all.

Useful for both veterinarians and pet owners alike, Home-Prepared Dog and Cat Diets, Second Edition is a unique handbook written by an expert in the field providing an introduction to the nutritional management of dogs and cats with easy-to-use recipes for home-prepared diets. Clarification: Calcium Carbonate We’ve had some questions from readers regarding the use of the term “calcium carbonate,” which is listed as an ingredient in a number of the diets found in this book, and therefore wanted to clarify what is meant by this ingredient. Baking soda comes in two forms: sodium bicarbonate and calcium carbonate. The sodium bicarbonate version is widely available as “baking soda” and is commonly used in baking, but none of the recipes in this book use it as an ingredient. The calcium carbonate version of baking soda is sometimes sold as “baking soda substitute” and sometimes referred to as simply “baking soda.” To avoid confusing sodium bicarbonate and calcium carbonate, any time the calcium carbonate type of baking soda has been used in a diet in this book, the ingredient includes the specific term “calcium carbonate.” There are several manufacturers of calcium carbonate baking soda; for example, Amazon carries the Ener-G Foods product baking soda substitute. Calcium carbonate can also be sold for garden use, which is non-food-grade, so to avoid the use of the garden product in foods, the term “baking soda” was used in this book instead to indicate that readers should be sure to select a food-appropriate ingredient.
