I HAVE recently retired and as a viewer I am now exposed to the daytime television adverts. I find that there a lot of organisations out there who want to bury or cremate me, at a "good price". As I sit in front of the telly, I wonder "what is this about"? Last week I received an email from one of these "terminal solution companies" and I sent this reply (not verbatim): “Thanks for your message and your generous time-dependent discount, but I have not yet decided when I would like to be dead, so I will speak to you nearer the time.”

The deceased are lucky that they do not have to endure the incessant TV adverts.
