No, the Diet of Worms isn't the latest weight-loss fad.

Unbelievably, the rain to-day is even worse than a few days ago.

I wanted to take a photo of the swollen river, but, I didn't dare take the 'phone out of my pocket.

Otto von Habsburg's full name was:

Franz Joseph Otto Robert Maria Anton Karl Max Heinrich Sixtus Xaver Felix Renatus Ludwig Gaetan Pius Ignatius von Habsburg.

WIP model!
