We introduce the Hamiltonian to describe narrow band electrons. The physics of driving forces towards ferromagnetism is re-examined. Using different approximations it has been shown that the magnetic moments created by inter-site interaction and inter-site kinetic correlation decrease quickly with temperature. As a result of these interactions and the realistic density of states the Curie temperatures calculated after fitting magnetic moments to their low temperature values are realistic. In the past the Curie temperatures calculated using only the on-site interaction were much higher than the experimental temperatures.
