My family can plant the ashes wherever they want, in the garden, in the ocean, wherever, though I think I'd prefer the ocean if they wouldn't cause pollution, ha ha! The ocean is polluted enough as it is.

Well, two years with The Story of Civilization taught me that the participants in this vital discussion group move right on even if the Discussion Leader is gone for a couple of days. So of course I wasn't surprised that you continued with much gusto. And they weren't just mundane postings either. Your remarks were all filled with profound thoughts and opinions -- as usual indicating that we all "come from different places" in our views. For example, what to Mal is an original Sin "ad campaign" is the solid truth to others. Each to our own and we listen to others with respect.
My head is filled with lots of psychological jargon and I am glad to get back to using "simple" words -- sometimes with greater meaning. An aside with some human interest. We had two days of workshops going all day long. Last night I finally got up to my hotel room at 10 p. I am not a TV watcher but to unwind I got a bottle of Sprite out of the machine in the hallway and settled down on the bed to watch some "garbage", mainly ads, while I sipped most of the Sprite. Then I shut off the TV, turned out the lights and went to sleep.
About two hours later I opened my eyes and was wide awake. I expected to go right back to sleep but I didn't. Finally after trying without luck to get back to sleep, I turned the TV on again. It didn't put me to sleep. This really blew my mind as I have no trouble sleeping. After a while, I put on a movie and with no trouble at all watched the entire movie, including all the commercials. This went on and on and finally, the movie over, I turned out the lights after checking the time just out of curiosity. It was a.

I then slept for two hours and then got up for an 8 a. I shared all this with a friend, having no idea why I couldn't get to sleep. I am ordinarily an excellent sleeper. At noon time I repacked my overnight bag, threw away the empty bottle of Sprite -- and lo and behold!! The puzzle was solved. I had been loading myself up with caffeine! That was the first Mountain Dew I had ever drunk as I was aware of its high caffeine content. And it will be the last. Last night I had two hour sleep. I expect to go to bed soon and sleep late tomorrow. But not before I move us on to Durant's next section.

Hopefully without too many mistakes. The Greek Conquest B. But rumors were about that he was planning, if Carthage, won, to conquer all Greece with Carthage's aid. The victory of Zama had hardly been won when the Senate, which never forgave an injury, began to plot revenge upon Macedon.
Rome, the Senate felt, could never be secure with so strong a power at her back across a narrow sea. When the Senate moved for war, the Aswembly demurred, and a tribune accused the patricians of seeking to divert attention from domestic ills. In B. Quinctius Flaminius sailed against Macedon. It has an almost contemporary ring to it, I believe, and shows again that there is indeed nothing new under the sun. Propoments of war seem unable to understand those who would try other methods for solving problems.
Opponents of war understand war mongers well enought, but it isn't returned. What is unfair, thoughtless, and cruel is the personal contempt that supporters of war hold and voice for those with peaceful views. That, at least is the case currently. I would think it was the same way back in B. As I said before in another discussion - facts here reinforce what I am learning- that history repeats itself ad infinitum. When will we ever learn? Your recent posts have made me think about my own death and about disposal of the body.
Is that something I should be concerned with?
Is it rather for the living to decide whether I should be buried or cremated? If cremated, what does one do with the ashes? Do my children wish to visit my ashes at some burial site or in some crematorium or perhaps they may each take a third of the ashes and store them in a jar on the mantel. Perhaps the ashes should be scattered to the winds or dropped in the ocean, but that leaves the children with out a place they can visit to renew our relationship. Should the body be kept about for three days or be immediately covered up and disposed of?
My children are the ones affected. Do they need my corpse around to aid in grieving, to help them get used to the idea that I am gone, that they are alone? I don't want to leave them to the mercy of some undertaker and I don't want them spending money needlessly. Perhaps, I should talk to them about the subject but they don't want to think about it. I may soon force it on them, because I think it's an important and complex issue. Justin research has shown that viewing the body is in fact closure whether it be by an adult or a child.
I personally found it so when my husband died and so did my children who were aged at the time. My nieces and nephews aged also saw the body and were not at all traumatised they have attended family funerals at an early age. My adopted children never saw the body of their natural mother as their legal guardians at the time would not allow it. My adopted daughter told me that for years until she was about 13 she was convinced we all lied to her and daily expected her mother to come back for her.
At the hospice where my husband died my two daughters helped the nurse to wash and lay out the body. They said they felt glad to help with this last bit of caring for their father. My husband discussed his entire funeral service with our pastor and what he wanted done with his remains with me.
He was cremated and his ashes are in a special container under a rose bush in our front garden. If I ever move the ashes can be retrieved and moved to another resting place. Quinctius Flamininus was a youth of thiry, one of that liberal Hellenizing circle which was gathering about the Scipios in Rome. After some careful maneuvering he met Philip at Cynoscephalae and overwhelmed him Then he surprised all the Mediterranean nations, and perhaps Rome, by restoring the chastened Philip to a bankrupt and weakened throne, and offering freedom to all Greece.
In the herald of Flamininus announced to a vast assemblage at the Isthmian games that Greece was to be free from Rome, from Macedon, from tribute, even from garrisons. So great a cheer rose from the multitude, says Plutarch, that crows flying over the stadium fell dead.
When a cynical world questioned the sincerity of the Roman general, he answered by withdrawing his army to Italy. What's going on here? He was part of a "liberal Hellenizing circle.
