    Lol---as usual no money but there are a slew of back issues of 2000 AD and Judge Dredd Megazines would love to get my hands on. I'm still the biggest collector I know in USA for owning originals going all way back to their first year..

    Well, the £ is still falling at the moment, so if there's anything you want to buy from us now might be a good time.

    What about Bernie Sanders?
    Sanders appears to have given up. I never thought much of him, but he wasn't as bad as Hillary, and he polled better against Trump than Hillary does. But he has a lot of solid support that might support him, if he decided on an independent run, even though it's too late to get on some ballots. I would favor him making the independent run just because it would stir the mess some more.

    I have never been all that interested in politics much preferring the military lifestyle of accountability-depending who you knew so maybe it wasn't that much different. The country seems so divided these days with so many causes there is simply no pleasing anyone. I'm at the age where it's easy not to care-I won't be around when social security goes broke and I feel NO guilt over collecting my share--it was worked for. Personally I find Hilary a cold fish but she's in a shark tank all her political life so I cut her some slack but I also believe she has never had to wonder where the next meal might be coming from next week. To me Trump is all about glory and ego and frankly I never have bene able to take him seriously so a bit alarmed he has gotten this far but the signs seem to be there that people are getting less and less entertained by him so maybe we'll dodge a bullet. Never took Sanders seriously at all and the media seems to go out of their way to portray him as a spoiled child wanting to paly stickball HIS way or nothing. Purely personal gut reactions no need to argue any of this from my point of view. But beginning to think the old story of The Lady or The Tiger could be a parable of our times.

    Blue, it's been an incredibly long time since I last checked in on you. You're one of the good memories I have of the site which has changed so much that I come back more for nostalgia of a more innocent time then anything else. To be honest I was pleased you're still here and posting--I'll never catch up now on the blog count. Further pleased your Mother and you still together. I was surprised by the development in your country and to be truly honest didn't have a clue of the implications. Further truth my real concern was whether 2000 AD and Judge Dredd Megazine would suffer as I get them imported to me here in USA. With no attempt at an authoritative knowledgeable opinion in the worst of times somehow money gets moved around until it settles down--wait and see. As to crying well I was never pretty my entire life and tears come from time to time-usually romantic comedies when true love wins out. I have avoided Finding Nemo for years and adding Finding Dory to the list as well. The Grumpy Dinosaur has an image to maintain.

    We call those Cajun blackened marshmallows, Blue.

    I made some cookies. Triple chocolate. Slightly plastic tasting and a little burnt marshmallows. I feel better now.

    This is the excellent foppery of the world, that,
    when we are sick in fortune,--often the surfeit
    of our own behavior,--we make guilty of our
    disasters the sun, the moon, and the stars: as
    if we were villains by necessity; fools by
    heavenly compulsion; knaves, thieves, and
    treachers, by spherical predominance; drunkards,
    liars, and adulterers, by an enforced obedience of
    planetary influence; and all that we are evil in,
    by a divine thrusting on: an admirable evasion
    of whoremaster man, to lay his goatish
    disposition to the charge of a star! My
    father compounded with my mother under the
    dragon's tail; and my nativity was under Ursa
    major; so that it follows, I am rough and
    lecherous. Tut, I should have been that I am,
    had the maidenliest star in the firmament
    twinkled on my bastardizing.

    Encasing in plastic would either be short term, or it qwwould require extreme embalming, because the bacteria in the body would tend to rot it anyway. I understand that cyanide will kill all of the bacteria, so that might be used in embalming.

    Cremation burns off all of the carbon, so making diamonds would not be possible. But the lime (calcium oxide) created in burning the bones could be used in making concrete.

    How about encasing the dead in clear plastic (recycled of course) like they did the robot in the 50's version of "The Day the Earth Stood Still". I guess we'd be up to our eyeballs in such all too soon though. I do like the idea of turning one's cremains into diamonds, though that must be so expensive.

    Enjoyed this blog topic.

    So glad you explained the spelling. It's bothered me for years.
