Why not put a Beehive?

A graveyard and field of beehives sometimes look disturbingly similar. Would it be a stupid idea to combine the two? Perhaps just the hive stand would be a headstone.
Assuming a hive were maintained it would ensure someone visited your grave, and they're probably coming with flowers too.

Do bee suits come in black?

Might protect against grave robbing too.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Mine tombstone should say light-heartedly read:

Here lies John Clayton, who we would have buried face up "as he requested in his will" - but we couldn't find his face, the idiot was cremated!

I don't want a tombstone, I want an oak tree planted right over my forehead, and my body encased in a pine box ready to return to the earth and nourish the tree.  Wink

I will probably donate my body to a body farm

http://www.deathsacre.com/

My mother is donating her's to some science research. She has scoliosis. She is about 6 to 7 inches shorter that she would be if her back was straight. The Doctors wonder how she manages not to have problems as all her organs are compacted into a smaller area than normal. She said when they get done with what ever they might do, they will cremate her and I would have to pay $250 to get her ashes. I asked her why would I want to do that? We look at death a bit different than most people.

I'm actually in care of a 1/2 pint mason jar of my Fathers ashes. It is his wish that they be scattered at the Grand Canyon or Las Vegas (Hopefully both) and when we retire and take that monster motorcoach of ours www.beemaster.com/bus.html and head South and around North with one huge SEE THE MAJOR ATTRACTIONS, like Ronald Reagan Presidential Museum (Tour an Ex-Air Force One plane), Mount Rushmorre and maybe Devil's Tower while we are there Smiley

But everything Americans should want to see of the US of A. I sure hope to see ALL HER BEAUTIES while I'm still safe behind the wheel of a 38ft Bus. I don't wan't to be doing that AFTER 70 the latest, never to drive the big bus again.

By then, we may have founds the PLACE WE WANT TO LIVE OUR LIVES OUT and that is a big part of our US tour Smiley
