"Alfred, Lord Tennyson is considered the most representative poet of the Victorian Age in England, and many of his works characterize the conflict between the Christian faith and the beginnings of the scientific revolution. The death of his sister's fiancé, Arthur Henry Hallam, at the age of 22 plunged Tennyson into profound shock and a lifelong struggle between faith and doubt. "Ring Out, Wild Bells," generally considered a New Year's hymn, is taken from the 106th Canto of In Memoriam, Tennyson's monumental elegy to Hallam that was published in 1850, the same year that he was appointed Poet Laureate."

From www.ajokeaday.com - 12/29/20:
|It was my first night caring for an elderly
patient. When he grew sleepy, I wheeled his chair as close to the bed as
possible and, using the techniques I’d learned in school, grasped him in
a bear hug to lift him onto the bed. But I couldn’t clear the top of the
mattress. So I grabbed him again, summoned all my might, and hoisted him
onto the bed.
When the night shift nurse arrived, I recounted what had happened. “Funny,” she said, looking puzzled. “Usually I just ask him to get in bed, and he does.”.
