3. To soothe, to comfort.
4. Winston Churchill.
5. Isabella of Arragon and Ferdinand of Castille. Castille was very small, but had the most people and was the most fertile land. Arragon was most of Spain, but was barren and hardly any people lived there. By marrying, they united all of Spain. They were very ambitious.
6. All Saints Day!!!
7. Superregnum
8. C# D and G#
9. Josephine.
10.One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them. One ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them. (Lord of the Rings).
In the Hobbit, Bilbo and Golem are telling each other riddles in the dark. If Bilbo wins, Golem shows him the way out. If Golem wins, he gets to eat Bilbo. After several different (and very tricky) riddles, Bilbo can't think of another one and says, What have I got in my pocket?
He has, of course, got the ring of power that he found on the edge of the lake the Golem lives on.

Puzzle books, for example word finds and crossword puzzles, go a long way at passing time quickly.
Photos from the milestone birthday or anniversary, photos from the special trip, or even a collection of childhood photos are all great examples.
It shouldn't be any different from the gifts for fathers day.
