From Reuters LONDON (Reuters) - Teacher Dave Barclay flew thousands of miles across the Atlantic to Wales to attend his friend's wedding, only to discover he was a year early. Barclay, 34, was told about the wedding earlier in the year and assumed it was to take place in 2007.

"I am a year early -- yeah, my mates are loving it, aren't they," he told BBC Radio Wales. The groom, Dave Best, had emailed his friend at the start of the year. Tango’s Take
All in al;, it was a pretty good first date. From Reuters By Grant McCool HO CHI MINH CITY (Reuters) - A young woman lives with her boyfriend but hides it from her family, girls write blogs about love and relationships and couples seeking privacy cuddle in public parks at nightfall. A "quiet" sexual revolution is unfolding in Vietnam, an intensely family-oriented society that holds strong traditions of women being married by their mid-20s and having children. Huyen, a 30-year-old public relations executive, came to work in Ho Chi Minh City two years ago from Hanoi. After first staying with an aunt, she secretly moved into her boyfriend's apartment. "I didn't tell my aunt," she said. "It is quite popular to move in together. Besides, Saigon is big and many couples who have moved together from other provinces live together."
Finally. Now that that Chaz Sheen is engaged to Brooke Mueller, he can get all of those wild ways behind him. He bought her a nice engagement ring (rumored price tag: $500,000, or roughly one and a half episodes of Two And A Half Men) and now they’re on their way. The two have been dating for about a year and maybe she’s a nice counterbalance, not being part of the whole entertainment ‘biz.’ She’s also not a call girl (that we know of). So all systems appear to be go. We’ve got a good feeling about this one. As long as Charlie can keep his gig on Two And A Half Men where he can exercise the ‘old Charlie’ a little. We’ll. All. Be. All. Right. No word on whether or not Denise Richards is going to one-up Sheen by marrying someone even less famous and more stable. Her accountant has his fingers crossed.
From Associated Press By D'Arcy Doran LONDON - Female genital mutilation, commonly associated with parts of Africa and the Middle East, is becoming a growing problem in Britain despite efforts to stamp it out. London's Metropolitan Police, Britain's largest police force, hopes a campaign beginning on Wednesday will highlight that the practice is a crime here. To make their point, police are offering a $40,000 reward for information leading to Britain's first prosecution for female genital mutilation, Detective Chief Superintendent Alastair Jeffrey said. In Britain, the problem mostly involves first-generation immigrants from Africa and the Middle East. Police say they don't have comprehensive statistics about the number of victims. But midwife Comfort Momoh, who specializes in treating them at London hospitals and clinics and who works with police, told the news conference she treats 400 to 500 victims every year. Tango’s Take
