Happy birthday to William Shakespeare, who is believed to have been born on or around this day in 1564. We've brought a few works out of the vault for the occasion, but we do wonder what he would have thought of our ca. 1893 copy of "The Family Shakspeare [sic], " edited by Thomas Bowdler, "in which nothing is added to the original text, but those words and expressions are omitted which cannot with propriety be read in a family."

Factors to Consider Before Applying for a Loan

A loan of any amount is never to be taken for granted. The fact remains that you will have to pay it back with interest. With an economy that is not stable, it is becoming impossible to do without a loan. Experts at Instant Lolly, a 24 month loans provider based in the United Kingdom argues that if you must apply for one, there are some things that you should know first. Do ample research on the things to consider before applying for a loan. This will make it easier to know what to do and what to avoid at all costs.
