manners

The custom of pouring wine right up the top of the glass is something only modern (high street) restaurants do. For a moment last night the dining table of Downton looked like Pizza Express.
Downton Abbey waltzed back on to our screen last night, to the gratitude of the nation. It will come as no surprise that this is one of my favourite shows, not just because of the drama and characters but also the etiquette, customs and clearly defined class structure that was present at the time.
There should be a cut off point for women to stop wearing bikinis as it's tacky and indecent when they get to a certain age.
I've been DJing for a number of years mostly in London and sometimes across the country. I meet a number of interesting characters and it's also at times made me gather a large amount of hate I have for mankind. Why? Because I'm convinced that people congregated in one space in a small room make up for what is the opinion of the general public personified.
Wimbledon is one of the only sporting tournaments to enforce a strict dress code on players. When former champion Rafael Nadal first played in the competition in 2005 he was famous for tight fitting colourful tops, but Wimbledon regulators suggested that he switch to white equivalents instead.
The celebrations from the Jubilee weekend are still fresh in our minds and will live on in our memories and affections for years to come. Buckingham Palace and the Royal Household put on a jolly good show for not just the British public but for the wider world to show that we Brits know how to celebrate in style.
The Diamond Jubilee weekend is here; people up and down the land will be celebrating and gathering with friends and family. You may be opting to take part in the 'Big Lunch' on the Sunday, or throw a tea party or picnic on the Bank Holiday Monday. But another option would be to throw your own garden party.
A factor that distinguishes the doers from the non-doers is their level of etiquette. Depending on how a client decides to conduct themselves, be that on a business or personal note, can determine the outcome of a coaching assignment.
The relationship between young people and the police in London has once again been in the spotlight this weekend.
An iPad will never replace mum or dad reading a book before bedtime. McDonalds never as yummy as a home cooked dinner. Being told off is better than being ignored. Kids deserve more and parents need to step up and be counted. It is time to get back to the basics of what it means to be a mum or a dad.
