Learn English with Bob the Canadian channel


Welcome to this free English class about words that go together. I've noticed that some English words just naturally go together. There are times when I use one English word, and there is another word I just automatically use right away as well. Some words just occur together sometimes. In this English lesson I will help you learn some of these word pairs that English speakers often use together. After this free English class I'm sure that you'll be able to use these words in your next conversation. In this free English class you'll learn word pairs like: cup and saucer, nuts and bolts, peanut butter and jam (or jelly), soap and water, bed and breakfast, hammer and nails, coffee and a donut, macaroni and cheese, lock and key, jeans and a t-shirt, cream and sugar, problems and solutions and many more! I hope you enjoy this English lesson about word pairs! Have a great day!

00:00
Well hello and welcome to this English lesson where we're
00:04
going to talk about English words that just nicely go
00:07
together. In the English language we sometimes will say
00:11
one word and then there's another word that just
00:13
naturally goes along with it. These aren't co-locations.
00:17
That's not what this lesson's about. This lesson is about
00:20
things like hammer and nails or coffee and a donut. That's a
00:24
very North American thing to say. But these are words that
00:28
when I'm Speaking English when I say one word I almost always
00:33
naturally in the same conversation use the other word
00:36
at the same time. So I think you'll enjoy this you'll enjoy
00:40
seeing how these words go together. And something
00:43
interesting Jen and I noticed as we were brainstorming these
00:47
words. We usually say them most of these in the order I will
00:52
give them to you. If an English speaker says these two words in
00:55
the opposite order it sounds funny when I say it doesn't
00:59
really sound like natural English. So I'll try to make
01:02
sure I highlight that as I go through as well. But once again
01:06
welcome to this English lesson where we're going to talk about
01:10
words that go together. Things that when we speak English
01:14
these things just naturally go together in the same sentence.
01:18
Hammer and nails. So when we talk about building things.
01:22
Often when we build something out of wood we need a hammer.
01:25
But in order to attach two pieces of wood together we need
01:29
a nail. And you use the hammer to hit the nail. You might have
01:33
heard the phrase to hit the nail on the head. That means
01:36
that you know literally when you swing a hammer you hit the
01:40
nail right on the head but it also means that you got
01:42
something completely right or you guessed something
01:45
correctly. But when you say the word hammer it's almost natural
01:49
to say hammer and nails. I'm going to go get some a hammer
01:52
and some nails in order to hammer these two boards
01:56
together or to nail these two boards together. So you can see
01:59
in the picture this person is holding up a hammer and they
02:02
are holding a a nail. Two things that naturally go
02:06
together when you're speaking English. Um when you buy
02:09
furniture from IKEA you don't need a hammer and nails to put
02:12
it together. It's kind of nice. But when you build something
02:15
yourself you sometimes need a hammer and nails in order to
02:19
put things together. Family and friends. So we often use these
02:25
two words together when we're talking about the people you
02:29
know. Someone will say is it going to be a large party? No
02:33
just family and friends. Is it going to be a big event. No I'm
02:38
just inviting family and some friends. Um sometimes too when
02:42
you start a business your first customers will probably be
02:46
family and friends. Uh if you let's say you bought a little
02:49
cart and you are going to sell food as a street vendor. Your
02:53
first customers might be family and friends. They might know
02:56
that you're starting a business and they might come to buy some
03:00
of your food. So family and friends simply refers to all
03:03
the people who you're related to and all of the people you
03:07
are friends with. And we often use these two words together.
03:10
You know oh invite your family and friends. It'll be fun.
03:12
Invite everyone you know. Invite your family and friends.
03:17
Coffee and donut. So again this is very North American. I think
03:21
the British equivalent might be tea and crumpets. I'm not sure.
03:25
Don't quote me on that. I'm very North American when I
03:29
speak English. But let's see here. Coffee and donuts is
03:33
something that I do like having at the same time. I don't drink
03:37
coffee anymore but when I was a coffee drinker it was always
03:41
tempting to have coffee and a donut. Um sometimes at work
03:45
someone has a birthday and they buy everyone coffee and donuts.
03:49
So again North American. I think in different parts of the
03:53
world there are other drinks and foods that go together as
03:57
snacks. But here in Canada and certainly in the United States
04:01
as well coffee and donuts seem to go together. That's why we
04:06
have coffee shops and donut shops. So when we want coffee
04:09
and a donut we can just pop in and get one. Thunder and
04:13
lightning. So thunder and lightning again is something
04:17
that goes together. Tonight we might have a storm and there
04:20
will be lots of thunder and lightning. Um we don't off say
04:23
lightning and thunder. It's kind of weird how a lot of
04:27
these have kind of a natural order. You know there was a
04:30
huge storm last night. There was lots of thunder and
04:32
lightning. I could say there was lots of lightning and
04:35
thunder. But it doesn't roll off my tongue the same way. So
04:39
again something that happens during a storm. Lightning is
04:42
certainly the bright flash of electrical energy that comes
04:46
down and thunder is the boom bada boom bada boom noise that
04:49
you hear afterwards. Problem and solutions. So problems and
04:55
solutions. It's nice when these two go together. When you have
04:59
a problem it's nice to have a solution. So again a problem is
05:03
something that you need to figure out like how are we
05:06
going to get to work if we don't have a vehicle today. So
05:11
that was a problem that we had because our van is in the
05:14
garage. But the solution is that my school is closed today.
05:19
So I don't have to go to my school. I'll talk more about
05:21
that later. So it's always nice when you have problems no sorry
05:27
it's not nice to have problems. It's always nice to have
05:29
solutions when you have problems. It's not nice to have
05:33
problems although it is part of life isn't it? Cup and saucer.
05:38
So this is something I don't do. Let me make this a little
05:42
bigger. Um when I have a cup of tea I don't put a saucer
05:46
underneath. I usually just grab a mug or a cup and I put my tea
05:49
in it and I just put the cup right on the table. And when we
05:53
visit parents they often will have a cup and saucer. So
05:57
they'll have something to put the cup on. I think depending
06:01
on how fancy you are when you drink your tea or coffee. Uh
06:05
you might or might not put a saucer underneath. Kind of to
06:10
protect the table that you're putting the cup on. Nuts and
06:15
bolts. So if you put two pieces of wood together you can use
06:18
nails. If you put two pieces of metal together you can use nuts
06:22
and bolts. The bolt is the longer thing with the thread.
06:26
The nut is the smaller thing that you can put onto the bolt.
06:31
So sometimes I guess even with wood. If you drill a hole
06:35
through two pieces of metal. Or if you drill a hole through two
06:38
pieces of wood you can put a bolt through and then you can
06:41
turn a nut onto the end. You can screw a nut onto the end.
06:45
Two different verbs there. But nuts and bolts definitely go
06:48
together for sure. So this is an interesting one depending on
06:54
where you are from in Canada or the United States. You might
06:59
like peanut butter and jam sandwiches or you might like
07:02
peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. We never say jam
07:06
and peanut butter. We never say jelly and peanut butter. It's
07:09
always peanut butter and jam or peanut butter and jelly. Now
07:13
jam and jelly are very similar. Jam is made from fruit. Jelly
07:18
is made from more of the juice from the fruit but they are
07:21
both you know semi semi solid. That's not a nice way to
07:25
describe food. It's a spreadable fruit. A sweet
07:29
spreadable fruit concoction that you can put on a sandwich.
07:34
But it tastes really good with peanut butter. In fact this
07:38
phrase is so common. Peanut butter and jam. Peanut butter
07:41
and jelly that we just call them PB and J. Um I'm going to
07:44
have a few PB and J sandwiches for lunch. Um so definitely
07:47
something that I think is yummy. I say peanut butter and
07:51
jam. And again we don't ever reverse it. Um could I have a
07:55
jam and peanut butter sandwich? Just sounds really weird to my
08:00
years. Pen and paper. So pen and paper naturally go
08:05
together. Even in our world of printers and photocopiers and
08:10
all that kind of stuff. We still sometimes need pen and
08:14
paper. Um sometimes I'll say to Jen hey let's make a grocery
08:17
list. I'll grab I'll grab a pen and some paper. Um or I'll grab
08:21
pen and paper will sit down and we'll write down what we need
08:24
to buy at the grocery store. Um still a pretty standard thing
08:29
to grab a pen and paper when you need to make a list. When
08:32
you need to kind of write down a few things so that you don't
08:36
forget them. Yet today when I brought my van to the garage I
08:40
grabbed a pen and paper and I wrote down oil change takes
08:44
snow tires off so I used pen and paper to make a list of the
08:48
work that needed to be done on my van. Soap and water we've
08:52
heard this one a lot over the last two and then over two
08:56
years soap and water is a good way to wash up or to wash your
09:01
hands. Um when you have water it doesn't quite clean your
09:05
hands all the way. But when you use soap and water it cleans
09:08
your hands really well. So we often will have signs now that
09:12
say please wash your hands with soap and water. Um please wash
09:16
your hands frequently with soap and water. Um a very common
09:20
thing right now in the world. Um still asking people to stay
09:24
about two metres apart and still asking people to wash
09:28
their hands with soap and water frequently as they go through
09:32
the day. Track and field. So we had an Olympics recently not
09:38
the Winter Olympics by the way. But the one before that in the
09:41
summer and there are events that take place that are called
09:44
track and field when you run the 100 meter dash It's called
09:48
a track event. When you do something like shot put it's a
09:51
field event. But track and field is something that
09:54
naturally goes together. The reason I thought about this one
09:57
is one of my children was at a track and field meet the other
10:01
day. So they are on a track and field team and they went to a
10:04
track and field meet. Which is when a whole bunch of schools
10:08
get together. And compete in track events and field events.
10:13
But these two words very often go together in English. Track
10:16
and field. Rest and relaxation. They say that in order to be
10:22
healthy and in order to be happy you should have a good
10:27
the proper amount of rest and relaxation. Um rest is of
10:33
course things like taking a nap just laying down and looking at
10:37
clouds I'm usually just thinking rest is taking a nap.
10:41
Relaxation is maybe reading a book or doing something where
10:45
you don't need to spend a lot of energy. We've actually short
10:49
this phrase. It's so common in English that we just call it R
10:52
and R. Um sometimes you need some rest and relaxation. You
10:55
need a little bit of R and R. But again rest would be
10:58
anything where you're having a nap. Uh or just doing nothing.
11:02
Just kind of sitting and watching boats go by on a lake
11:07
would be considered rest and relaxation. Um and relaxation I
11:12
guess watching boats go by is both isn't it? You're sitting
11:15
and resting. Let's say it this way. Rest is when you're laying
11:19
down either having a nap or just laying down or sitting
11:22
down. You're not walking or running or And relaxation is
11:26
anything that makes you feel at peace. Bird watching, reading a
11:32
book, all of those kinds of things. Lock and key. So when
11:37
you lock something you usually have a key there's usually a
11:41
lock and we even have the phrase it's under lock and key.
11:45
So you could say where is the where is the suitcase with the
11:49
million dollars in it. And then on the TV show if someone said
11:53
that they might say oh it's back at my house under lock and
11:56
key. It means that it's somewhere where there's a lock
11:59
and they used a key to lock the lock. So when something is
12:03
under lock and key it means it's locked. And the words lock
12:06
and key quite often are seen together in English. I saw this
12:13
one earlier in the chat. Someone mentioned bed and
12:16
breakfast. So a bed and breakfast is actually a place.
12:20
A bed and breakfast is a house where the people who live there
12:25
will rent out bedrooms the bed part for you to sleep in and
12:30
every morning they will give you breakfast. So you obviously
12:33
pay money to go to a bed and breakfast. But if Jen and I
12:37
went on a trip we could decide to in a hotel or we could stay
12:42
out of bed and breakfast. When you stay out of bed and
12:45
breakfast they give you a bedroom. There's a bed. When
12:47
you get up in the morning you go to the kitchen or dining
12:50
area and they feed you breakfast. So bed and breakfast
12:54
is an actual type of business over here. Uh in Canada and in
13:00
the United States and I'm sure in many parts of the world and
13:03
it might just have a slightly different name. Research and
13:08
development. This is something that companies that businesses
13:12
that organizations do in order to become better. They want to
13:18
become smarter. They want to know more things. They want to
13:22
do things in a more efficient way. So they will do research.
13:26
When you do research you might study another organization or
13:30
business that does the same thing as you. You might analyze
13:34
how your production works. You might look at how people spend
13:39
their time at work. You're doing research. You're
13:42
collecting data. And then development is when you take
13:45
that research and you decide to do something in a new way or to
13:51
do something new with your business. So businesses and
13:54
organizations are often doing research and development. We
13:58
even do this as teachers. We have special meetings called R
14:02
and D which stands for research and development. Where we look
14:05
at new ways to teach and we develop ways or plan on using
14:09
those new ways in our classroom. Macaroni and cheese.
14:15
This is I think very North American. I know originally
14:20
this is probably an Italian dish but what we eat in North
14:24
America is doesn't resemble that as much anymore. Macaroni
14:28
and cheese would be small noodles. Small pasta noodles.
14:33
They're usually curved. We call them elbow macaroni cooked and
14:38
then mixed with cheese. It is a very common dish in North
14:43
America. It comes in a box. Again if you are Italian and
14:47
you haven't ever had mac and cheese or macaroni and cheese
14:52
in North America. You might be shocked. It's not the
14:55
healthiest way. It's not the healthiest way to eat it. Uh
14:59
sorry it's not the healthiest recipe. But mac and cheese is
15:04
the short form. And it's so popular from one company called
15:09
that calls it craft dinner that we also call it KD. Um but yes
15:14
it's basically little elbow macaroni's noodles. Elbow pasta
15:18
mixed with cheese. And again It's called macaroni and
15:22
cheese. The short form is mac and cheese. And we do not call
15:25
it cheese and macaroni. That just sounds funny. If we are
15:29
making this for our kids we usually say do you guys want
15:32
macaroni and cheese tonight? Or do you want mac and cheese? We
15:35
I don't think I've ever in my life said do you want cheese
15:38
and macaroni tonight? That doesn't sound normal at all.
15:44
Needle and thread. So we also when we have to fix something
15:47
we might need to use needle and thread. So when you have a hole
15:51
in your clothes you might say oh I'm going to need needle and
15:54
thread. I'm going to need a needle and thread to fix this.
15:57
Do you know where the needle and thread is. So in our house
16:00
I've sewn buttons back on. So when you do that you need a
16:04
needle and thread. But when something has a hole in it I'm
16:07
usually not the one to fix it. Usually someone else in the
16:11
house with more skills will do that. But needle and thread is
16:16
a very common word pair to see in English. Socks and shoes.
16:23
This is an interesting one. Because we're often telling our
16:26
kids that they need to wear socks and shoes when they go to
16:29
school. Uh sometimes kids just want to wear shoes with no
16:33
socks. But I think I'm pretty sure our schools have a rule
16:37
that you need to wear socks and shoes. Um socks and shoes it's
16:40
another thing where if someone's going somewhere
16:43
you're usually like do you got your socks and shoes? Do you
16:46
have socks and shoes? Uh do you have clean clothes? Do you have
16:49
socks and shoes? It's a common thing to go together. Again a
16:52
sock is something you put on your foot. It's just made out
16:56
of fabric and then a shoe of course is what you wear on a
17:00
daily basis. Table and chairs. So table and chairs I'm not
17:06
sure why. You almost always refer to table and chairs
17:10
together when you're talking about it. Like oh our kitchen
17:14
we want to replace the table and chairs. Or we're going to
17:17
buy table and chairs to put outside on the patio or on the
17:20
deck. Uh oh you have a nice set of table a nice table and chair
17:25
set. It's very very cool. It's made out of wood or something
17:28
like that. But often people will say yeah we just need to
17:32
move a few things. Uh we got all of the we moved in the
17:36
beds. We in the furniture. Uh we just have to move in the
17:39
table and chairs yet for the kitchen. Um often these two
17:42
things go together in English. Fish and chips. I think I saw
17:49
this one in the chat too. I think someone was guessing a
17:53
lot of these are food related. Well not a lot about half of
17:57
them. But fish and chips definitely are often said
18:01
together in English. When you go to a certain kind of
18:05
restaurant if you order fish you might order fish and chips.
18:09
Chips in this case are actually what we call French fries. But
18:14
in some parts of the world they would call those chips. It's
18:17
fried potatoes. Fish and chips is deep fried in oil. So they
18:22
have very hot oil and they butter the fish. They put like
18:27
some flour, egg and flour on the outside or another mixture
18:31
and then they'll put it into the hot oil. And the French
18:34
fries or chips are also put into the oil. Uh and so you get
18:38
what's called fish and chips. Again in Canada we call this
18:43
fish and chips. If you ordered the chip part separately you
18:49
would probably just call them French fries. I know in the UK
18:52
they call those chips sometimes but here chips are actually
18:56
potato chips that come in a bag. I think in Britain they
18:59
call them crisps. But these would be fish and chips if
19:02
you're in a fish and chips restaurant. But if you were
19:05
somewhere else and there was no fish we would call them French
19:08
fries. I I hope that made sense to you. Uh two flavours that go
19:14
together are sweet and sour. When we Chinese food we often
19:19
will order sweet and sour chicken or sweet and sour pork.
19:22
It is delicious. It's a a really cool flavour combination
19:27
because you have the kind of the sourness of things like
19:31
pineapple and other things in there. But the sweetness of you
19:36
know the sauce usually has a little bit of sugar or brown
19:39
sugar in it. Not sure of the details. Please don't get angry
19:42
if I'm describing sweet and sour wrong. But it's certainly
19:45
a mixture of different ingredients that have a sour
19:50
taste with ingredients that are very very sweet and it just
19:53
makes it super super tasty. It's one of my favorite things
19:57
to eat. Uh sweet and sour pork, sweet and sour chicken are
20:00
super super yummy. And then I thought it was funny yesterday
20:06
because as I was making this lesson we were talking about
20:11
whether is it you know pizza and wings or is it beer and
20:16
pizza or pizza and beer like we were trying to figure out
20:19
what's the most common and I and Jen was like it's pizza and
20:22
wings. Like do you want to get pizza and wings? And so then we
20:26
went out to get pizza and the place we went to. This is from
20:30
yesterday. The front sign actually said twice the deal
20:34
pizza and wings. So pizza and wings are two common types of
20:40
fast food in North America. Obviously pizza is a big round
20:43
thing with cheese and tomato sauce and pepperoni and other
20:46
things and wings are actually chicken wings. They're really
20:49
small pieces of chicken and usually they're they have a
20:53
really yummy sauce on them. So it's very common for people in
20:58
North America. If you have a party and you're watching like
21:02
a basketball game or a football game. You might order pizza and
21:06
wings. That's a very common thing to order to have
21:09
delivered to your house if you're having a small party.
21:13
Chips and salsa. Again this is very North American. Again this
21:17
is a North American lesson. When I was a kid we didn't eat
21:21
chips and salsa. It was not common. But over the last 40
21:26
years in North America. Eating tortilla chips with salsa.
21:31
Either like a red salsa or a green salsa has become very
21:35
very common. Any party I go to if I goes to someone's house to
21:41
watch a football game. If I have if we have a party at
21:45
school for someone's birthday there is a high likelihood that
21:48
there will be chips and salsa there. It is delicious. Um the
21:52
salsa can be mild, medium or hot. There's different levels
21:56
of spiciness or heat. But chips and salsa are definitely a very
22:00
common thing. In fact if you go somewhere and they order pizza
22:05
and wings you've probably already been eating chips and
22:08
salsa before that. So in North America we have to thank our
22:12
friends in Mexico for creating I'm sure it's Very Americanized
22:16
now but chips and salsa thank you for that gift. Um my
22:21
friends way down to the south in North America. Now I'm sure
22:24
people from other parts of the world will claim they invented
22:27
it. And maybe I don't even know who invented it. But it's
22:31
yummy. You should try it. Milk and cookies. Again I think a
22:36
very I'm going to say a very North American thing but maybe
22:40
not. People often when they have a chocolate chip cookie
22:43
they like to have a glass of milk with it. For some reason
22:48
chocolate chip cookies in particular taste really really
22:52
good when you have them with milk. Um you can also eat Oreo
22:57
cookies with milk but milk and cookies is a very common thing
23:01
that goes together when you're having a snack. Um I like milk
23:06
and cookies but I don't know if you knew this. I can't actually
23:09
drink milk. It makes me sick. So I drink almond milk with my
23:13
cookies. So if someone makes fresh cookies in our house I
23:17
sometimes will have almond milk and cookies. But milk and
23:20
cookies definitely Law and order. When you live in a
23:26
country you want it to be a safe place. You want to be able
23:30
to go about your day without being afraid of criminals or
23:34
crime or bad things happening to you. So you want to make
23:37
sure there's law and order. I don't know why we put these two
23:41
together. Law would refer to the fact that there are
23:44
different rules in society for how you're allowed to behave.
23:49
You can't just take something without paying for it. There's
23:52
a law against that. And order means that when you go
23:56
somewhere you can expect things to happen in a normal polite
23:59
way. Um people aren't going to speed. There's going to be the
24:03
laws are going to create a certain kind of behavior which
24:07
is orderly. So it's nice to live somewhere where there's
24:11
law and order. Burger and fries. This is another I think
24:16
very North American thing. Um and I have to go back and talk
24:20
about in the chat someone said that chips and salsa is
24:24
originally from South America. So maybe the Chips and the
24:27
chips and salsa have been slowly coming up north for many
24:31
many years. Um but that was from Diana. She says chips and
24:36
salsa are originally from South America and other Latino
24:39
countries. So anyways thank you. They're yummy. Wherever
24:42
they're from. Uh we also in North America. We eat a lot of
24:46
burgers and fries. It's pretty common when you're going to
24:49
have a burger to have fries with it or French fries.
24:52
Especially if you're buying it from a restaurant. If you order
24:56
a hammer in a restaurant it most likely comes with fries.
25:00
When you go to McDonald's or a fast food restaurant you would
25:04
need to order it separately but often people will say you know
25:07
I'll have a cheeseburger and with fries. Cheeseburger and a
25:11
small fry or something like that. Definitely they go
25:15
together quite often. Over here in North America and I'm sure
25:19
this is spreading to other parts of the world as well. I
25:24
like to have fries when I have a burger. Cream and sugar So
25:28
when you drink coffee in particular you will most likely
25:32
put cream and sugar in it if that's how you like to have it.
25:36
Remember we talked about in Canada a double double is when
25:39
you have two like you put twice as much cream in and two scoops
25:44
of sugar into your coffee. If you order a coffee in Canada
25:47
and order a double double it has two creams and two sugars
25:50
in it. Um but super yummy when you have cream and sugar in
25:54
your coffee. Now if you drink tea you might put milk and
25:57
sugar in. But definitely when you have coffee if you are
26:01
looking to add something to it cream is a very common thing to
26:05
put in as well as sugar. If you are going to rest and relax. If
26:13
you need some rest and relaxation like we talked about
26:15
earlier. You will most likely do it wearing jeans and a
26:19
T-shirt. These two words very often go together when people
26:23
talk about after work or the weekend. Oh I can't wait to get
26:28
home from work and just change into some jeans and a T-shirt
26:30
and sit around on the couch. Or I love working from home
26:34
because I can just wear jeans and a T-shirt. So again a
26:37
T-shirt Is a white shirt. I don't often wear them in my
26:41
videos. Sorry it doesn't have to be white. A T-shirt is a
26:44
very simple shirt. There's a hole for your head and a hole
26:47
for each arm and short sleeves. This man is wearing a T-shirt.
26:50
And jeans are blue pants made out of what's called denim. But
26:55
definitely if you are going to relax you will most likely take
27:00
off your formal work attire. If you're wearing a suit or you're
27:05
wearing a dress or a skirt or some sort of common work
27:10
clothes when you get home you probably will change into jeans
27:13
and a T-shirt if that's what you like to wear to relax. Fun
27:19
and games. So we often will say that there's going to be a lot
27:23
of fun and games somewhere. Um so when you go especially to a
27:27
fair or a festival you could say oh there's just lots of fun
27:30
and games. So there's fun things to do and there might
27:33
even be games to play. There's a lot of fun and games. Horse
27:39
and rider go together. Um lot of times lot of times. A lot of
27:44
times around here there are certain trails where you can
27:47
ride your horse and there will be signs that say something
27:51
like horse and rider must be aware of pedestrians at all
27:56
times or horse and rider crossing those kinds of things.
27:59
So when you talk about horses you almost always talk about
28:03
the rider that goes with it. And then the last one here I
28:07
have three things. Sun, moon and stars. The things that you
28:11
see in the sky that are guess further away than clouds. Cos
28:16
there's clouds as well. But you will also often say oh I bought
28:19
a nice bracelet and has the sun moon and stars on it. Or I like
28:23
looking at the sky. I love the sun moon and stars. I love
28:26
watching the sunrise or the sunset. I like walking at night
28:30
and seeing the moon and stars. But definitely when you're
28:33
talking about the things that are in the night sky and the
28:37
daytime sky we often will say the sun moon and stars at the
28:41
same time.
