Well, it was off to the dentist this morning, or more correctly the hygenist. An hour in the chair and my smile is all sparkly white again. It's still not my favourite place to spend time, but at least it's painless.
Past Ruined Ilion Helen Lives
Past ruined Ilion Helen lives,
Alcestis rises from the shades;
Verse calls them forth; 'tis verse that gives
Immortal youth to mortal maids.
Soon shall Oblivion's deepening veil
Hide all the peopled hills you see,
The gay, the proud, while lovers hail
These many summers you and me.
Walter Savage Landor
1775 - 1864
