Condolences Big Dog. She may have done it tough but am sure she had much good life experiences, including the great care she received from you.

Hard times BD. Sounds like she was lucky to have your support at the end, but hopefully she would (with her great attitude) have had many others in her corner.

So tomorrow the Chief Crook is likely to fire the Money Man who refuses to tell the money repositories to deal with some banindian mates of his.

The result will be that exchanges rates will plummet and the stock exchange will crash. I know this as the same thing happened 15 months ago when he pulled the same move.

This means my pension will be farked in the A again.

Thanks Furri. There were about seventy people at the funeral which is an indication of how much she was liked in the local community.

Big Dog, people like your friend rarely make the news (or our celeb death thread). Yet such people have deep roots in their local community and are sorely missed on their passing.

A guy I know died last week after a long and horrendous illness. The country town where he lived has an old burial tradition. 

It begins with the towns folk meeting at the deceased's home where they can view the body should they wish. The coffin is then moved to a hearse and a procession follows to the cemetery (via a Church is optional, depending on whether the deceased was a subscriber). If the house is close to the cemetery, those who can walk the distance. Following the burial, the town's folk return to the home for a wake.

It is all a bit like New Orleans. I can almost hear the old Neville Brothers version of "Will the Circle be Unbroken". 

I cannot make the funeral but will hum a few bars of the tune.


(Here is a link to the song. In the final stanza, reference is made to the burial of Chief Jolly. 'Chief Jolly ' - George Landry, was a muso, chief of an Indian Mardis Gras tribe in New Orleans and an uncle of and inspiration to the Neville Bros.)

So the prick pulled the plug at midnight. ZAR has already lost 5% of its value.

It has not been a good week for retirement planning in taipanland. The market has dropped all over the place.
