365:92[i]Hans Christian Andersen (Danish: [?han?s ?k?æsdjan ??n?sn?]; often referred to in Scandinavia as H. C. Andersen; April 2, 1805 – August 4, 1875) was a Danish author and poet. Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels, and poems, Andersen is best remembered for his fairy tales. Andersen’s popularity is not limited to children; his stories—called eventyr, or “fairy-tales”—express themes that transcend age and nationality[/i]

These red shoes, are my favourite trainers. They may look a little shabby now as I am not an enthusiastic user of polish and duster but they are essentially as good as new. I’ve been wearing them for over 20 years. When I bought them I thought them highly expensive but I now realise their worth.

If you don’t get today’s connection, shame on you. I have no intention of labouring the point… but wasn’t Moira Shearer [i]divine[/i]? Of course, [i]she[/i] never danced in shoes like these!
