632 AD is the year in which Islam prophet Muhammad died on Monday, 8 June, in Medina, at the age of 63, in the house of his wife Aisha. A few months after his farewell pilgrimage to Mecca, Muhammad fell ill and suffered for several days with a fever, head pain, and weakness.

In AD 634, Oswald of Northumbria defeats Cadwallon ap Cadfan of Gwynedd in the Battle of Heavenfield and reunites Northumbria.

A.D. 635.  This year King Cynegils was baptized by Bishop Birinus at Dorchester; and Oswald, king of the Northumbrians, was his sponsor, (who supplied him with helmet, sword and shield all in team colours and a nice T shirt with the sponser's logo on it!!)

At 6:36 this evening was I listening to 'Cabin Pressure'(which I used to love) ......... I have to say I was disappointed :hmm:  but thanks for mentioning it.

It is only when you form your question precisely and accurately that you receive the true answer.

637
means “always and forever”, because there’re 6 letters in “always”, 3 in “and” and 7 in “forever”.
The Internet told me so, but it didn’t tell me why something has to be always and forever, like you can do something forever but not always? I mean, it’s possible, you have to use bathroom for as long as you live, which is the same as forever if we are mortal beings, but not always... hopefully.
Anyway...

638: the number of minutes I've spent pondering Helen's last statement.

Haven't heard it yet, but I suspect it's winding down... I do like Bleak Expectations too but think that lost its way a bit.

639 is a hostel in London.

641st Tank Destroyer Battalion was established December 18, 1941 at Ft Lewis, WA, from personnel of the 41st Infantry Division. Originally a Light Towed Battalion, they shipped from New York, port of embarkation on Mar. 4, 1942 and arrived in Australia (via the Panama Canal) on Apr. 9, 1942.  Arrived New Guinea on Jan. 21, 1943.  Entered combat on May, 1944 and was redesignated as 98th Chemical Battalion (Motorized) on Jun. 24, 1944. Apparently Japanese had by 1944 no tanks to be destroyed by this battalion :)

There are Kegel exercises for men too and if a man does them every day for

days, he can not only lay an egg but he can also crack it and separate the yolk from the white without any need to use his hands while doing it.

A.D. 644.  This year died at Rochester, on the tenth of October, Paulinus, who was first Archbishop at York, and afterwards atRochester.  He was bishop nineteen  winters, two months, and one and twenty days.  This year the son of Oswy's uncle (Oswin), the son of Osric, assumed the government of Deira, and reigned seven winters.

Poor old Paulinus!
