Life Ain’t Always Beautiful

Charles Cowling

Here’s an unusually well-written blog: THE MY WIFE HAS CANCER BLOG. Had. She died on 29 March, and its author will shortly be wrapping it up.

It’s a very good, if sometimes difficult, read. And there’s an interesting post on funeral costs. We’d find it hard to do anything like that so cheaply in this country, where direct cremation has yet to catch on – and a memorial service instead of a funeral.

There’s a touching little slide show put together by a friend of the author, whom he describes as a ‘computer genius’. It doesn’t take a genius, of course. He could have used Animoto. And if he’d really wanted one created by a genius he’d have gone to Louise at Sentiment.

WARNING! This blog may disappear without warning at any time. Don’t worry! It’s because Blogger is discontinuing its server (or somesuch). It will transmigrate to WordPress and be resurrected as something altogether user-friendlier. Service will be suspended for no more than a few days.

    what a beautiful blog that was. I have to set aside some time now to go back through and read the older posts.

    WordPress has a pretty good spam filter. No need for those annoying word verification things when leaving comments. Charles, your book must be due out soon, too – good luck with that!

    Charles, I also use WordPress for my various sites – works fine and there are far more optional features you can add.

    Is someone doing the transfer for you?
