I imagine that public executions were meant to have the same effect.  At least on paper, anyway... ;-)

These signs are great!
Freedom of speech and political protest are some of the greatest traditions in the United States, but sometimes they can get a little serious. What better way to lighten the mood than these clever, funny, and just plain weird signs? Down with them! Image...

I went to the ICCFA conference's Exhibit Hall in San Antonio today. Was at first surprised to see a chocolate vendor. Then I thought more. Why yes, all memorials should have chocolate!

These are pretty good cat hiding places.
Because every day is #caturday
Get a good laugh at these sneaky ninja cats that have mastered the ancient art of ninjutsu.

I like this hospice story
After spending hours at the bedside of my precious Grandma Daisy, I stepped out of her room to make a brief telephone call. At that moment, Grandma Daisy died. When I began working in hospice, I witnessed similar experiences....

Introduction

Lizzy is a passionate advocate for hospice and end-of-life issues and has presented her research and experiences with death and dying at national and international grief conferences.  

Via fundraising from a successful Kickstarter campaign, Lizzy was the host of the very first death cafe in the United States in Columbus, Ohio. She has now hosted more than twenty events in her city and has provided guidance to dozens of other facilitators on how to host the death cafe events.  Lizzy's Death Cafe work has been featured by a variety of media outlets including New York TimesUSA Today, Huffington Post and on public radio.

She is an active member of the Association for Death Education and Counseling (ADEC) and a contributing author at Opentohope.com.  She recently authored a book about her hospice experiences titled, Somewhere In Between:  The Hokey Pokey, Chocolate Cake and The Shared Death Experience.  She is obsessed with the #magicageof91 and has been collecting stories for 4 years (It's worth a Google).  She openly admits that she believes in spirit communication and has been blogging about synchronicities and signs from the universe for over seven years at www.followthesigns.blogspot.com.  Lizzy lives in Central Ohio with her husband and two cats.

Lizzy Miles changes her mind frequently about her career identity, but has always held true to her enthusiasm for written and oral storytelling. She has two masters degrees but still can't spell well.  She has been published in a wide variety of formats including: award-winning Hallmark cards, academic journal articles, and retail training manuals.  

She recently published The Downside of Dream Jobs: Video Game Tester, The Downside of Dream Jobs: Sportscaster, and The Downside of Dream Jobs: Upset Recovery Flight Instructor  These are the first three Kindle Single in a series of interviews with subjects who have dream jobs.

Sooo... that's my formal profile but I don't really think it adds a lot of dimension.  I am also into new technology, trend watching, social networking, postcards, greeting cards (basically correspondence), photography, travel (someplace new every time except for Vegas which is a regular trip).  I am a military brat and lived half my childhood overseas.  I don't eat vegetables and I play poker.  Do you feel like you know me better now?

Good luck picking a circle for me.  Perhaps 'positive people'?

Favorite quotes:

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty & well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out and proclaiming, 'Wow, what a ride!'"  - (unknown)

"Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome."   - Isaac Asimov

"Plan for this world as if you expect to live forever; but plan for the hereafter as if you expect to die tomorrow." - Gabirol, Ibn

"Everyone wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die." - Joe Louis

“I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather... Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.” - Will Shriner

"To die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly. Death of one's own free choice, death at the proper time, with a clear head and with joyfulness, consummated in the midst of children and witnesses: so that an actual leave-taking is possible while he who is leaving is still there. "- Friedrich Nietzsche, Expeditions of an Untimely Man

"According to most studies, people's number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you're better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.” - Jerry Seinfeld

"Ignore death up to the last moment; then, when it can't be ignored any longer, have yourself squirted full of morphia and shuffle off in a coma. Thoroughly sensible, humane and scientific, eh?"  - Huxley, Aldous

“Judge not, lest ye be judged judgmental” - Florence King

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.” - Albert Einstein

"Does Jesus like chocolate?" – a patient/friend of mine

“Deep inside of us we all know there is someone we were meant to be.” – David Kessler

“If life is a school, loss is a major part of the curriculum.” – Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

“Our main motivation for living is our will to find meaning in life.” - Victor Frankel

"I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing." - Agatha Christie

"Forgive all who have offended you, not for them, but for yourself" - Harriet Uts Nelson

"What doesn't kill you makes for good stand up"  – me
