Let me tell you about my extended family.

Religion, we have Catholic, C of E, atheists, agnostics, Pagan, Wiccan, Spiritualist, Jehovah's Witness and Jedi represented, we discuss our views, we never fall out about them.

Ethnicity, we have Irish, English, French African, Polish, Welsh and Scandinavian.

Sexuality, we have Gay, Straight, not sure yet and Transvestite.

Health, we have Bi-polar, Depression, Childhood Cancer, Adult Cancer, Post Traumatic Stress, Dementia and Diverticulitis.

We also have a mix of Left and Right Handed.
