13-year-old Jimmy Page — yes, THAT Jimmy Page — plays skiffle on 1957 BBC talent show

Videre est credere.

He appeared on the show "All Your Own," hosted by Huw Wheldon, and played "Mama Don't Want To Skiffle Anymore" and "Cottonfield."

i-Memorial — "Do not leave unprepared"

56410-1

Catchy, what?

i-Memorial's full page ad in Friday's Wall Street Journal was headlined "Build your immortality — life is worth it."

Below, it said "Say what you have to say. Do not leave unprepared. Let i-Memorial become the fully secure guardian of your lifetime, the best place to leave the trace of your passage on Earth."

A bit different from the usual full page ads in the Wall Street Journal, what?

I like that phrase, "Leave the trace of your passage on Earth."

Though as time passes I suspect your trace — whether left in i-Memorial's cloud or on some holographic display that will come on the market circa 2020 — will be of diminishing interest to anyone other than those who ring up the annual charge to keep your cloud presence alive.
