Isn't this beautiful?
A pair of human skeletons lie in an eternal embrace at an Neolithic archaeological dig site near Mantova, Italy, in this photo released February 6, 2007. Archaeologists in northern Italy believe the couple was buried 5,000-6,000 years ago, their arms still wrapped around each other in a hug that has lasted millennia.
I also find it very interesting that in death it seems that most people lie in the fetal position, almost the same way we are born.
This picture elicits many emotions ... from sad to romantic, sweet, beautiful and loving. It shows that love in life and death is beautiful and eternal.

Believe it or not, Bridal / Wedding Gloves are still very much in fashion. If you are looking for gloves, we found a great collection on Amazon.com.
For the History of the Opera Glove (which is quite interesting) Click here. A small blurb to wet your taste buds is here:
The opera glove has been recognized for well over a century as one of the foremost symbols of feminine elegance and sensuality. The very sight of a kidskin, suede, satin or lame glove embracing the hand and arm of a woman sends a powerful conscious and subconscious signal that the wearer is a woman of style, elegance, passion, power and sexuality. Ever since over-the-elbow gloves were first widely worn by women during the Regency and Napoleonic era at the beginning of the 19th century, and especially since "The Divine Sarah", Sarah Bernhardt, introduced the mousquetaire to America in the 1870s, the opera glove, on the arms of beautiful women, has been reducing male viewers to puddles of mush.
