1. ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY
8th September 1796
THE BATTLE OF BASSANO
The French Revolutionary Army under Napoleon defeated an Austrian army attempting to relieve the French siege of Mantua, Italy. The relief attempt consequently failed. However the retreating Austrians fled into Mantua itself, swelling its garrison. This did not save the town, which finally fell to the French in the following February.

3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Even in loving families, there is occasionally a spat! Last night's, though brief, was very upsetting for everybody, coming out of the blue and over trivial matters.
With things thankfully patched up before bed, I was left pondering the lessons to be learned. I have concluded that I need to be more conscious of my weaknesses in even loving company, particularly in overreacting to what others say and do.
Mindfulness, it turns out is for me an essential continual activity vital in protecting me (and others!) from myself. No matter who I'm with or where I am, that calming blanket of self-awareness needs to be there. I will learn and move on.
4. TODAY'S QUESTION FOR YOU

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
We are only just beginning to harness the capabilities of dogs. Some dogs can smell dead bodies under water, where termites are hiding, and natural gas buried under 40 feet of dirt. They can even detect cancer that is too small to be detected by a doctor and can find lung cancer by sniffing a person’s breath.
9. ZEN WISDOM
Everything begins with the resolve to take the first step. From that action, wisdom arises and change begins. Without action, nothing changes.
