"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body but rather skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming 'Woohooo what a ride, I wanna go round again!!!'"

Irish Joke

An elderly Irishman lay dying in his bed. While suffering the agonies of impending death he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favourite scones wafting up the stairs.He gathered his remaining strength and lifted himself from the bed…Leaning against the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom, and with even greater effort, gripping the banister with both hands, he crawled downstairs.
With labored breath he leaned against the door frame, gazing into the kitchen. Were it not for death’s agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven, for here, spread out upon waxed paper on the kitchen table, were dozens of his favorite scones.
Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of heroic love from his devoted Irish wife of sixty years, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man? Mustering one great final effort, he threw himself towards the table, landing on his knees in a rumpled posture. His lips parted, he could almost taste the scone before it was in his mouth, seemingly bringing him back to life.
His aged and withered hand trembled on its way to the nearest scone at the edge of the table, when his beloved wife suddenly smacked his hand with a spatula.
“Get off!!” she said, “they’re for the funeral!!”

ICE Numbers

In case of emergency (ICE) is a system that was conceived in the mid 2000s that enables those at accident scenes -  paramedics, firefighters, and police as well as hospital personnel, to contact next of kin to obtain important medical or support information. 

Unfortunately these days for security purposes, many mobile phone owners now lock their mobiles, requiring a pin number to access the device. In response to this problem, many device manufacturers have provided a system to show some text while the mobile is 'locked'. The owner of the phone can specify their "In Case of Emergency" contact and also a "Lost and Found" contact.

Please speak to your service providers for more information but whatever you do, put an ICE number into your phone now!
