A second collection of rhyming verses, with no copyright restrictions, produced especially for use in card making. The verses, a mixture of light-hearted and serious, range in length from 4 lines to 16 lines. A couple of the verses are religious. The rest are not. The verses are written in British English and cover the following subjects: Birthday - General; Birthday - Teasing/Not-So-Young; Birthday - Themes/Hobbies (dog lover, cat lover, football, tennis, golf, knitting, handicrafts, gardening, travel, new car, cooking, shopping, shoes, fashion, handbags, Ebay, Amazon, music, phone); Birthday - Age (18th, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th, 70th, 80th, 90th, 100th); Birthday - Sorry it's Late; Family - Birthday/Father's Day/Mother's Day; Good Luck/Congratulations (general good luck and congratulations, plus driving test and new babies); Appreciation - Thank You/Special People (including thank you for being there/for gift/for kindness/for friendliness and you're an inspiration); Changing Times (leaving, moving house, welcome new neighbour, new situation, retirement); Thinking Of You (keeping in touch, in pain, get well soon, sympathy, sudden bereavement, a prayer for healing, bad patch, painful anniversary, death of a pet); Wedding Anniversary (general and specific); Special Days (wedding, Valentine, special occasion, welcome back, Easter, Christmas, New Year).
Christmas is the most famous holiday of the year, and the word itself evokes images of Santa Claus, Christmas trees, lights, the baby Jesus, and, of course, presents. Instantly, well known Christmas carols ring in your ears, or maybe you even picture nutcrackers or Scrooge and Tiny Tim. Christmas has been popular for centuries, and it only continues to get more popular today, with Christmas season extending months in advance of December 25. And though much has been written of Christmas, its exact origins are still mysterious. Historians are unsure what date Jesus was born on, or whether Christmas Day coincides with previous pagan holidays. Regardless, Christmas is always the perfect time for holiday cheer, and reading classic Christmas stories like A Christmas Carol or Twas the Night before Christmas.
It was Christmas Eve and a Saturday night when Mrs. Larrabee, the Beulah minister's wife, opened the door of the study where her husband was deep in the revision of his next day's sermon, and thrust in her comely head framed in a knitted rigolette. "Luther, I'm going to run down to Letty's. We think the twins are going to have measles; it's the only thing they haven't had, and Letty's spirits are not up to concert pitch. You look like a blessed old prophet to-night, my dear! What's the text?"

This book covers the main mathematical and numerical models in computational electrocardiology, ranging from microscopic membrane models of cardiac ionic channels to macroscopic bidomain, monodomain, eikonal models and cardiac source representations. These advanced multiscale and nonlinear models describe the cardiac bioelectrical activity from the cell level to the body surface and are employed in both the direct and inverse problems of electrocardiology. The book also covers advanced numerical techniques needed to efficiently carry out large-scale cardiac simulations, including time and space discretizations, decoupling and operator splitting techniques, parallel finite element solvers. These techniques are employed in 3D cardiac simulations illustrating the excitation mechanisms, the anisotropic effects on excitation and repolarization wavefronts, the morphology of electrograms in normal and pathological tissue and some reentry phenomena. The overall aim of the book is to present rigorously the mathematical and numerical foundations of computational electrocardiology, illustrating the current research developments in this fast-growing field lying at the intersection of mathematical physiology, bioengineering and computational biomedicine. This book is addressed to graduate student and researchers in the field of applied mathematics, scientific computing, bioengineering, electrophysiology and cardiology.
