Long-lost love

Here is the story that we heard about in class the other day:

How long-lost love letter led to couple marrying after 16 years apart


A couple have married after they were reunited when a long-lost love letter sent ten years ago was found unopened behind a fireplace.

Steve Smith and Carmen Ruiz-Perez, both 42, walked down the aisle on Friday following a separation of 16 years.

The pair fell in love and got engaged in their 20s after Carmen moved to England as a foreign student.

Hi Graham!

I've read this post...

When a photon, fundamental particle, is changed, a second photon, immediately, is changed although there was distance between both and without its have absolutely physic connection each other. This is called quantum entanglement, it means that alteration of a subatomic particle has effect on another particle witch are connected between both, although they are apart million of light years.

The identical twins feel the same. The most excellent and lamentable tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare shows that two human beings have to be united by life and death.

Hi Graham, I think that Carmen and Steve have always been united, in spite of everything. The live of them is always connected despite they are apart physically.

Greetings. José.

I am neglecting José. A whole week has passed and I still haven't got round to replying to him.

I didn't realize you were an old romantic at heart, José. Do you write love poems? :D

Love is in the air. Maybe in small particles like photons...
