Additionally, build positive all of your vendors have liability insurance. If they do not and the worst happens, you will be on the hook for any costs incurred.

Ideally you require the services of a Personal Portfolio Manager, who is conversant with offshore Personal Portfolio Bonds. If possible choose a firm who can offer this service. A QROPS transfer is not just about transferring your pension to an offshore jurisdiction. Once invested your money needs to work hard to increase its value, to be able to provide your income in retirement. Make sure that the firm you chose is capable of undertaking this important part of the job. Only chose a firm who specialises in QROPS pension transfers, with advice being given by G60 or equivalent qualified advisors. Also make sure that they are fully conversant with international investment.

Bones are a popular method of oral care for dogs because they satisfy Caesar’s insatiable need to chew things. Chewing raw meat bones strengthens their gums, clean the teeth and aids digestion. Not only that – Caesar is a carnivore, so chewing a raw meat bone is instinctual for him. Larger bones are best if you go with this option.

Not only Byron’s works contrived to produce the modern image of the vampire in relation to the Male Seducer archetype, but also some odd events in his life and the life of those surrounding him exercised a decisive influence. A critical study bundled with an anthology of vampire tales (Conde de Siruela, 2001) attributes to the short story The Vampire (1819) by John William Polidori the fixation of the “classical images of the literary vampire as a villanious, cold and enigmatic aristocrat; but, above all, perverse and fascinating for women”. Mario Praz, in the same line, also states that Byron was “largely responsible for the vogue of vampirism”. Polidori was the unfortunate doctor and personal assistant of Lord Byron who died half-crazy at 25. The idea for the tale published in 1819 came from the famous meetings at Villa Diodati on June 1816 between Byron, Percy Shelley, Mary Shelley and Polidori, in what was probably the most influential gathering for fantastic fiction in the history of modern literature. In order to pass the stormy and ether-fuelled nights, they agreed to write each one a ghost story. Mary Shelley (who was then 17 years old) got during these nights the idea of what later became Frankenstein and Polidori wrote the tale The Vampire that he would publish three years later. The story appeared in the New Monthly Magazine falsely attributed by the editor to Lord Byron (taking advantages of the aura of Satanism that surrounded the poet in the popular view to promote the sales of the magazine). A misguided Goethe hailed the story as the best that Lord Byron had ever written. The tale was, actually, a covert portrait of Lord Byron disguised as the vampire Lord Ruthven, a cruel gambler and killer of innocent girls. Polidori had introduced in the story fragments from an autobiographical and revengeful novel called Glenarvon written by Caroline Lamb, an ex-lover of Byron. The Lord´s reaction was a threat to the editor and the denouncing of a commercial imposture with his name. Eventually Stoker´s Dracula (1897) blended, according to Siruela (2001), this tradition derived from Polidori´s Lord Ruthven with some old romano-hungarian tales of wandering dead and enchanted castles, fixating thus the modern images of the vampire.
