And so several nights a week, with ever-faithful Sergeant Doakes in my rearview mirror, I would stop over at Rita's house after work, play with Cody and Astor, and sit with Rita after the kids were in bed.

Full disclosure: all of my books are the same distance away from me in a bookshelf, lol, so I just grabbed a random one!

In the Middle Ages cardinals and bishops were not only leaders within the church, they were closely involved in the affairs of state: many had been statesmen themselves and had obtained their positions by royal favour.

St Thomas of Hereford was on the sofa by my side, I'm reading it at the moment.

The relation (2.28) expresses mathematically a number of important principles concerning systems that can be described on this form.

page 23 sentence 8
