" Nothing contributes so much to tranquilize the mind as a steady purpose — a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye. "
--Mary Shelley

Walked to bus stop to meet my grandson David and walked him home.

Dug trench to bury new phone line my father-in-law, Larry, was kind enough to string the wire for and connect.

Claudius: No one? Not even you? "...Herod eventually betrays Claudius.
