They missed off scaramouching.

A lady I know played the part. Hope you and LP are trundling through parenthood.

We are up to our eyeballs in being grandparents. The trip to the (next to) Wobbledom houses are seriously tedious.

The ruddy GPS keeps wanting us to trundle through all sorts.

We just ignore it and hit the A3 westbound.

I'm so glad I do not live in London anymore. Breath of fresh air up here.

Plus the value of bits and pieces has rocketed in Norfolk.

Cash for the grand-kiddiwinks. The poor people trying to buy first time is impossible without help.

Hope you can bung a bit of stuff to your own.

Go on. Have bit of a punt. Visit our lovely Town.

What.

Holy sweet jesus, please tell me thats been taken down?

It's since been ground into dust.


His family did it pretty much immediately after the allegations first arose; guess they found the allegations completely believable!

Just read the text. I know who they are. If they have no wish to come here, that's understandable.

Try and no conversion for you. Work that out.

Try plugging 'Raynes Park' into your GPS next time rather then Wimbledon Village, you might get closer to your sponging kiddiwinks.

Always fancied those Tibetan Buddhist jobbies, where your corpse is left in the mountains to be picked clean by vultures.

When I said that to TCMB (11 years younger & considerably healthier, so she'll have the job one day), she said "that's disgusting!"

"But, darling, it won't be me, just a vessel that's no longe-"

"fudge that, Benthos - once I'm free of you, the last thing I'll want to do is drag your virulent carcass half way round the world and then all the way up a mountain. The nearest skip, if I had my way!"

My mother says she wants her ashes scattered in Aegean sea. I always tell that I'll just drop them in the Thames on the basis that they'll get there eventually.

I did a a recce of our cemetery recently. You have just described most of the content.

Many include a quotation from the bible. I know, for sure, that the interred were of no faith whatsoever, but they lie in consecrated ground.

There is a word for that.

And what may that be?

How permanent is a headstone anyway though? 100 years? 150? There are graveyards with old headstones around with no inscription, eventually they get moved.

Tree is a nice idea though, environmentally speaking. :)

My brother's wife is an expert on headstones, particularly in East Anglia.

Tree is appropriate for me, but there is a vowel missing.

I like that. A lot. I’m a pagan (no particular creed or pigeonhole) so I’m fundamentally attached to the notions of renewal and the cycle of life. I have a similar idea for my own recycling. Respect. :thumbup:

However, if my friends and loved ones were to ignore my wishes and place some sort of memorial, they have made it clear they will include the text “Life’s too short to drink bad wine.” I have threatened haunting, but, tbf, I can see where they are coming from.

I can't decide to go simple or ballistic on a monument of a gravestone in gold font. Probably the latter.

Simple. "Worms, I fcuking hate worms".

Ballistic. "He was born with all. Good looks, a great physique, a 14" thick shaft, a supreme athlete. Men wanted to be him, women wanted to be with him. A phenomenal IQ, led this self-made man to become a billionaire philanthropist. A playboy too - he humped more hot women with his 14" thick shaft, of every colour, on every continent, than should be permissible. He had a 14" thick shaft".

I'm no gardener, but I'm pretty sure my folks use wood ash as a fertilizer. I'm not sure if that differs in pH to human ash.

Globby, any weeds sprouting through your patio??
