Does your front door colour speak the truth about you?  What does it say to visitors and passers-by about the person/s living behind it?  UK 'researchers' have discovered that the colour you choose for your front door often conveys the type of person you are.

For instance, the researchers have found that a red door person is normally the most extroverted and has a relaxed attitude to life.

In Scotland, a red door often signifies that the property is paid off and the owners are mortgage-free which sort of ties in with a 'relaxed attitude to life'.

Black cats are the hardest to rehome and this is the case in the UK and America alike.  Through no fault of their own, black cats are overlooked time and time again, as most people tend to choose 'prettier' coloured cats.  Even black kittens are left until last for adoption, while their more colourful siblings are chosen first.

The outlook for a black, adult cat in rescue is therefore very bleak and some spend many months in rescue...sometimes even years...waiting for someone to see past their colour.

Otto Sanhuber & Dolly Oesterreich  carried on a bizarre love affair for 10 years. 

Around 1913 Dolly, the wife of a wealthy textile manufacturer, met and became friendly with 17 year old Otto. It's said that Otto reminded Dolly of her late son who was of a similar age to Otto when he died.

Dolly enjoyed having the company of the young Otto - he comforted her during her bereavement and, despite the age difference, the two eventually fell in love and began a clandestine affair... meeting at local boarding houses and, when possible, at Dolly's home.
