Photo is linked to these early days of November when we think of all our loved ones who have died.
Some might say the tradition of remembering those who have died is morbid or strange. It is none of these and is simply a beautiful normal and healthy ritual of remembering with love our nearest and dearest. It is quite simply our way of saying we haven’t forgotten you. It is our way of saying you will always be remembered with love.

Significance of Today
Today is World Sandwich Day. It is about appreciating the simplicity of a good sandwich. There is certainly something special about your favourite bits and pieces piled high between two slices of delicious bread.
There is actually a place in England called Sandwich. It was here that John Montagu became the fourth Earl of this particular little English town. John was a well-known lover of card games. It is said that he originally ordered his meat to be delivered to him between two slices of bread so that he would not get his grease laden fingers on the card, nor require a fork to eat. And so we have the word sandwich today.
