Let’s start with the full moon. If you haven’t stepped out to take a look, do so.
It’s Technology Week in the garden, and while the tomb of St. Paul recently went on display for public viewing, we were reminded of the inventors working to create video tombstones so that YOU can leave YOUR legacy. Patents are pending on a couple of projects, and developers envision you being able to stroll through the cemetery with a remote, or access the dead from your desktop.
The Cassity brothers from Missouri have already started experimenting with this concept at the Hollywood cemetery, Forever Fernwood. Charlie Chaplin, Rudolph Valentino are there, and Dee Dee and Johnny Ramone both chose it as their final resting place. Johnnyâ€™s not there yetâ€”his wife is still holding on to his ashesâ€”but his monument, a statue of himself playing the guitar, is a siren call for a certain kind of customer, one who imagines the afterlife as like a really long night at CBGB.
The Cassity boys were the inspiration behind the hit HBO series Six Feet Under. Speaking of HBO, Rome is must see TV in the garden, and we just hope they don’t cancel the series, I’ve read the production costs for this show are astronomical.
Rushed post today, we are getting a break in the weather and must make “hey” while the sun shines.
Today’s tip: Inspire someone.
