you see what i was saying the masses will not like it

 

I have already posted a rant about funerals ....which i have a total disdain for ......not that we should not respect the  dead ......but where do you draw the line .........of  excess...... and total grief ....

All the way back as far as i can remember  ....i saw funerals parading down our street as a kid......that.s way back...the hearse ......and people following .........it has  changed with time ....money ....and of course its a nice .....and i mean  .......nice healthy business .......you never see a poor  undertaker .......i personally think death is  over rated on a scale that abysmal and down right shameful ......

But in throes of grief .....people only care about an amazing send off ....... for  a person that's well already gone !!!!!!!.......what you do is  really fucking pointless .....because when the  dead person goes to the gates of heaven .......  or hell....... or  where ever it is .......a 5 thousand dollar coffin is not going to get them in faster .......

Yes i am sad the queen is dead .....i am sad  at my parents died .....but they know  in their  ......spirit /soul /being .....you done your best .....in life  ...they just  had to leave....not theirs ........or your fault it  happens .......we are  all going to get the  big .......goodbye !/sinara/auf wheidersein/chow/au revoir/tara love/see ya!/ ......so after all said and done  ....people are conditioned  to buy things for dead peopel  ....i mean who else is it for .........

My point is  ...there are many...... many ...... starving children dying of hunger every single day in USA........ and all these death trinkets.........to dead people .......who cannot  hold /play/use/put them/keep them/sell them again ........

Would it not be nice to use her majestys passing to solve .......or even maybe save ......some children's lives ....after all these kids might be alive because of the queens passing ...that to me would make sense ....of course we do not want that .......human beings do not like sense...... they love to be brainwashed ........and told what to do ....if only a few had that idea?  .....the rest of the sheep might follow! ........but that's  way..... way..... way ......too simple 

People are leaving too many Paddington Bears and marmalade sandwiches as tributes to the Queen

People visiting London to pay tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II have been urged to stop laying Paddington Bear dolls and marmalade sandwiches down in designated memorial sites.

Thousands have traveled to royal residences Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, and Balmoral Castle to pay their respects since the death of Queen Elizabeth II last week, with mourners laying flowers, toys, and balloons down in homage to the monarch.

Alongside the growing collections of bouquets and cards, numerous stuffed Paddington Bears peer out at passersby, while hoards of marmalade sandwiches—the fictional character’s favorite snack—have also been nestled among the tributes.

The gifts are a sentimental nod to a sketch that aired earlier this year, in which the Queen hosted Paddington Bear for tea as part of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

However, the Royal Parks charity—which manages 5,000 acres of royal parkland across London—is pleading with members of the public to stop adding teddy bears, sandwiches, and other nonbiodegradable gifts to the tributes.

“We would prefer visitors not bring non-floral objects/artefacts such as teddy bears or balloons,” the Royal Parks said in guidance issued to the public in the wake of the Queen’s death. “Visitors are asked not to leave artefacts in any other areas of the parks.”

The organization added: “In the interests of sustainability, we ask visitors to only lay organic or compostable material. The public will be asked to remove all wrapping from floral tributes and place these in the bins provided. Removing the wrapping will aid the longevity of the flowers and will assist in subsequent composting which will start between one week and a fortnight after the date of the funeral.”

It said cards and labels would be accepted, and would be periodically removed by its staff and contractors, while candles would be extinguished if they were laid among the gifts.

Flower shops around Buckingham Palace have sold out of roses and lilies as crowds travel to pay their respects to Queen Elizabeth II.

A constant stream of thousands of people placed flowers, cards and stuffed animals at venues from Balmoral to Buckingham Palace as the country pays tribute to the late Queen.

Mourners have left tributes including teddy bears, Corgi soft toys, balloons, knitted versions of the late monarch and her friend Paddington Bear and, in one case, a marmalade sandwich, which was left at Balmoral in Scotland.

A message on the ziplock bag read: “A marmalade sandwich for your journey ma’am”.

Sunflowers have been one of the most common tributes left at Buckingham Palace, Windsor and Balmoral.

People could be seen pausing to bend down and read messages that have been left among the piles of blooms laid by trees and railings, many reading: “We will miss you” and “Thank you for your service”.

While some customers bought a stem for £10, others spent up to £100 on bouquets for the Queen.

The manager of a souvenir shop near Buckingham Palace said the number of customers buying memorabilia doubled overnight following the Queen's death.

Cool Britannia's manager, Ismial Ibrahim, described suppliers working overtime and scores of people coming through the shop each day.

"Since that evening, we have had a huge flow of people. The footfall has gone really high and since then people have started asking about anything to do with the Queen," Ibrahim said.

Over the weekend there has been a rush from people around the world to buy souvenirs — from mugs to dolls, newspapers, coins, jewellery and even teabags — as manufacturers phase out items with the Queen’s likeness to make room for ones of her son King Charles III.

Cool Britannia has already ordered King Charles III merchandise, which should arrive later this week, although sellers do not expect these to be as popular.
