Latest post of the previous page:

Yes, we've had more than our fair share of it so far, but I wouldn't say it has disrupted us much at all. The wife tried pushing the stroller through it once. I had a hole in my boot the day it started arriving. Nothing too serious.

Just spent a month in India. Of the places I went, I think Gokarna was most idyllic.
Woulb be back there like a shot, but can't reconcile the carbon damage with my conscience.

I agree, India is a great place, as long as someone else is paying.

I'm not what you would call "well travelled" But Mosside Manchester springs to mind.

Play games, write essays, hopefully soon be able to speak essays to my computer, statistical stuff, listen to music, watch films, read/watch the news, brows the internet, read scientific papers and articles, boggle my mind at the stupid things people think and do and probably a few other things I've forgotten.

Having my son at the age of 18 - it really helped to focus me on the important things in life. My parents also inspired me when I realised how great they actually were. Despite any mistakes they made, they genuinely always did what they did because they thought it was for the best and out of love. Their example has definitely helped me with raising mine.

Reading up on the ethics of stem cell research, researching Glycation biochemistry and hopefully relaxing at some point.

Where have you been which you would most like to go back to?

Having always took our holidays in either the Western Isles or the Outer Hebrides, and now living in Shetland, I can't think of anywhere I'd like to go back to.
So I'll pass it on, sorry.

1965 (aged 14) on a very small fishing boat, in a very rough sea, crossing from the Isle of Man to whitehaven (having been stuck there for 6 days.)

As an altar-boy, aged 11, I was at a requiem, standing next to the coffin, facing the congregation, when I suddenly remembered a joke and started to smile.
And the widow smiled back at me!

How would I know?



Do you think your funeral (if there is one) is something you should have any say about and do you think it will present any problems for anyone?

Yes one should have a say in their own funeral, if only because it will simplify matters for the bereaved. Know what is wanted makes the difficult decisions about how to dispose of the body much easier to deal with. None of my family are particularly religious and they all came to my humanist wedding (and enjoyed it), so I see no problems with having a humanist service and everyone enjoying it. I just hope that there won't be room to accommodate everyone who turns up to say goodbye!

Which leads me on to:

Who would you want at your funeral?

With apologies for being pedantic to a fellow pedant, but Humanists do ceremonies. We are in service to no-one :happyclappy:

Who would I want? Anyone who liked me. And I would hope for a well written and delivered ceremony to give anyone who turned up out of politeness an understanding and - if necessary, grudging - respect of the woman I was, the choices I made, and the life I led.


What choice/s have you made that have changed the path of your life?
