'Evenings in' with your girlfriend are fun, but sometimes it's nice to sit in front of the fire and just watch the flames together.

" Reunions ? " queried the old Major General looking slightly apoplexed and  knowing that he was the last one alive of any group to which he had ever held  membership or been attached.

Helpful people, if they ever have time to think about it, will tell you they're just made that way and it's not a conscious choice.

Choice veal cutlets topped with a dollop of tomato sauce, Bocconcini cheese drizzled with basil olive oil dressing and finished with a white wine sauce sounds like my choice from the main menu, and a tasty one too.

Together again, for the first time in sixty years, the twins were amazed to find they still dressed alike.
