Your wedding should be a fantastic day, but there is a lot to organise. Planning your big day means keeping track and deciding on all the little details that make up the big picture. One of the many things to sort out are wedding invitations, once the basics such as date and venue have been sorted. You can design your own cards or choose among pre-set designs, making sure everyone else knows about your big day.

This is accomplished using genetic markers that are passed from parents to their children that can remain unchanged over many generations.

Support for everyone involved

community support

Very often illnesses and diseases don’t only effect the patient. Cancer, such as mesothelioma, is one such that also affects the family and friends of the person affected.

I like to think, for the most part anyway, that society has started to grow up and adopt a live and let live attitude to most things. However, this story of abduction and forced marriage once again proves me wrong. (more…)

While the gender gap in the workplace is often commented on, the gap at school goes the other way, with the girls performing better.

engagement ring

The choice of engagement rings is a very personal one for every couple.
