A catalog of Edwardian kisses
Although these "typical kisses" are from 1905, they
are all instantly recognizable today. From "the
stolen nursery kiss" (left) to the "slobby 'Uncle
Podger' kiss", they are evocative of situations we
have all experienced or witnessed at some time or

Get digging for an avalanche of traffic
Theoretically, if you sign up here and get a few people to sign up under you, your website could soon be receiving more than a million visitors a month. (Not sure I have the bandwidth to cope with that!) "We have very high signup conversion rate," the site claims. "For every 100 visitors who come to this page, we have more than 10 signups."
