Or can little suggestions make a big difference?

The Queen and the Duke of Edingburgh are flying to Malta to celebrate their 60th anniversary..60 years is a long time and indicates a strong relationship..so what are the secrets to a long marriage?

Are you able to tell your friend the absolute truth even if he/she looks older? Tired? Is drinking too much? Is honesty really the best policy?

We hear their opinions on climate change, global obesity, genetics..Do scientists now rule the world? How much of influence do they have on our lives?
