1. Books that end with cliff hangers -- I've just finished reading the last available book in George RR Martin's Song of Ice and Fire. One character is in prison, another has been blinded, another is about the be hanged, a fourth has found his love turned to hate, another is wondering exactly who betrayed her -- her father knows, but won't tell her.
2. A home made biscuit that tastes faintly of lemons.
3. A miracle must have happened -- there is a walking stick lying in the middle of the park.
