I'm still waiting for Spring. It's still cold and raining here. Some warm weather will go a long way to making me feel so much better.

And now for something a little different. You can live eternally through song, literally. Your ashes can be pressed into albums.

“Rest in Vinyl” – A Company Will Press Your Ashes into a Working Vinyl Album

David Bowie released Ashes to Ashes on vinyl in 1980. Though the Thin White Duke was ahead of his time, even he couldn’t have foreseen how prophetic the release was… a radical way of treasuring departed loved ones is proof of this.

Should someone be musically inclined, or just want to be remembered in style, then there’s a quirky option which ensures their remains are not only seen but heard.

If you have the money you can press your ashes into a vinyl record, at the rate of a teaspoonful per disc. The company providing this offbeat service is And Vinyly. It was formed in the Noughties by music producer Jason Leach from Scarborough, England.

A combination of family accidents involving “cremains”, a sense of his own advancing years (he’s middle-aged) and his mother working in a funeral home helped Leach come to the conclusion that vinyl was the answer.

“It was not intended to be a business,” he told the BBC in 2017. “It was the result of having a bit of fun with what at the time felt like a shocking and disconcerting inevitability.”

As the name suggests, And Vinyly takes a light-hearted approach to the Grim Reaper. Their slogan is “Live on from beyond the groove!”

I had no idea he had so much confidence in me, but if it's OK, he can back off a little bit.

I was sitting in the doctor's office today and this feisty little old lady came in and sat down beside me. I was feeling bad because my treatments aren't working. She started talking to me and before I knew it I was smiling and laughing. Bless her little heart. She turned my day around. Pass it on, make someone smile today.

I had asked a question the other day about work issues with cancer. I am OK right now but feel like the writing is on the wall for me. Miss much more work and I'm a goner. I've been looking at the averages and numbers for people that go back to work. There are a lot of people that lose their jobs. Cancer doesn't just take your body or body parts, it gets your job, your life, your finances, it affects everything.

Luke Perry helps to spread the word about getting checked, colonoscopy, by using his spotlight to share his childhood friend's story.
