Japanese Wind Chime

Chime

 Reminds me of a famous poem: 

¬†“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend’s or of thine own were. Any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee…”
John Donne

Office Undead

Live from the Coroner’s Office: WARNING! Zombies have started marching out towards the offices. These terrible, crispy, decaying undead seek out fresh human heads for consumption to end the eternal pain of having to work between Christmas and New Years.

All humans on leave between Christmas and New Years are advised to stay home with all doors and windows bolted. Do not answer any calls from zombies regarding work, it is likely to be a trap to entice you to the office. Any unfortunate soul not having enough leave to cover 3 days is advised to take sick leave / freign death.
