Boning a leg of Lamb may look a bit daunting but if you go slowly it isn't that difficult. This is a great way to cook a whole leg of lamb. If you have a barbecue it will taste even better. Green beans are perfect with the Lamb and the addition of the anchovies make it very tasty. Have a great weekend!

Vogue has announced it will be sending educational videos to 1,000 schools across the UK, in an attempt to show young, influential schoolgirls models don't come pre-polished.

Despite the long standing argument as to the validity and the justification of the Monarchy and its continued existence, there is no denying the fact that such practice of power cannot simply be abolished. For one, the Monarchy is part of a long historical tradition.

Mark S. Whiteley | Posted 02.11.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Mark S. Whiteley

We have always been taught that varicose veins are caused by the valves in the veins failing, allowing blood to fall the one wrong way down the vein... causing varicose veins and worse.

G20 Global Speak Out: Love Russia, Hate Homophobia

Cameron says he's against a boycott of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia but he hasn't said what he'll do instead. We are asking the Prime Minster to raise Russia's homophobic repression at the G20 summit. We want him to publicly urge President Putin to repeal the "gay propaganda law" - which bans the "promotion" of homosexuality - and to prosecute the violent homophobes who are terrorising LGBT people in Russia. It is hoped that the 3 September protest will also ramp up pressure on the International Olympic Committee to insist that Russia gives cast-iron assurances that LGBT competitors, spectators and members of the Russian public - and their straight allies - will not be victimised

Though few will not wish they could earn more, the reality is that money is not as important as the satisfaction that comes from a feeling of being in control.
