I don't want to sound morbid, but I guess my genealogical research at Find A Grave.com has got me thinking about tombstones.

Anyway, if I get the chance to choose my own cemetery monument, it will be one of the Celtic crosses made by the folks at High Cross Monument Company:

These seem especially appropriate for R-L21 guys.

I guess I ought to add that I don't get any money from High Cross Monument Company. I am not selling tombstones and crosses on commission!

I just figured there are a lot of guys here who are as into their Celtic heritage as I am and might like this information.

I haven't thought about the kind of grave stone I might want....but i have thought about including my dna information with my name and such.

But after my R-L159.2 turn-over I guess nothing is written in stone ;)

taken to Avalon on boat to return again will do me!

One thing I think about gravestones.  The more humble they are the more touching they are.  Ostentatious doesnt work IMO.  On the one and only time in America I visited Arlington and I was struck when our tour took us to the Kennedy plot how much more touching Bobby Kennedy's simple plain white wooden cross at the foot of the slope was compared to JFK's massive complex above.

There is a really simple ground level grave slab of the politician John Smith on the Scottish island of Iona in the ancient burial ground of he Gaelic kings.  He died prematurely in the 1990s before he would almost certainly have become Prime Minister. I

There is a really simple ground level grave slab of the politician John Brown on the Scottish island of Iona in the ancient burial ground of he Gaelic kings.  He died prematurely in the 1990s before he would almost certainly have become Prime Minister.

A sad moment, I often wonder how different things may have been otherwise.

Yes he seemed to be a good guy.

Politicians today almost all make me sick as they mainly career politicians with no experience of the real world, straight from a posh school, straight to an ivory tower, straight from there to being political researchers or barristors and the population are brain washed and vote for these people!  I seriously think they should have quotas meaning a certain percentage of MPs are ordinary folk from the real world.  Maybe it should be like jury service and a random sample of citizens should be made MPs for a year each, maybe making up a quarter of the seats and inject the real world back into politics!!

One other Celtic method would be becoming a bog body so archaeologists can dig you back up in 2000 years!  They found yet another one just a couple of months back.

I would still like to have the Celtic cross, but if I don't buy one for myself ahead of time, it probably won't happen.

Otherwise, I want to arrange for a round barrow and burial with some mead-filled beakers.

Its definate less messy than the Megalithic way of sky burial followed by stacking your dry bones with the ancestors.

I am working on filling myself up with mead (among other alcoholic beverages) before I go in the barrow with the beakers. :-)
