You see some strange things in the waste and recycling business. While doing some research into composting methods for Premier Waste Management I came across a new method of disposal for human remains.

Son No. 2 has been home from Uni for the weekend. With a big blue plastic Ikea bag full of washing and some even bigger news...
A COUPLE of students of mine were going home recently when they were pulled over by the boys in blue.
The excuse (not that they need one) by the police was that the car they were travelling in was not registered as being from that area.
