Very interesting read and packed full of facts and stories from the past. Wondering what to invest in during the recession. How about Death ? Seems like it's always been profitable since man first got it organised. Certainly pleased some of the older customs and practices have been 'cleaned up' and reading what folks got away with in days gone by is quite amazing. Recommended reading for those who have ever wandered around an old grave yard and wondered why and how some of the monuments and mausoleums were installed. Obviously those slick salesmen were around in those days too.
