Bored with Myself

Today I learned the word "rejection" was first used in 1415 (MCDXV). Here's what else happened that year: Several reformers of the Catholic church were burned at the stake for heresy. Henry IV died, and Henry V took over as King of England and invaded France.  Also Cecily Neville, mother of Edward IV and Richard III of England was born.  If you watch and enjoy (as I have) the excellent BBS/Starz miniseries The White Queen based on Philippa Gregory's wildly successful historical series (The Cousins' War: The White Queen, The Red Queen, The Kingmakers Daughter) you might find this interesting. Otherwise, you may go about your business and ignore this post.
