Default .... crematory smokestack?

Google: "Ash accusations prompt lawsuit" Laconia Citizen for the May 24 article and photograph by Bea Lewis.

If you look at the photograph, the crematory smokestack does seem to be too low in relation to its slightly uphill neighbor, the Motorcycle Museum.

What do you think?

I think it should be easy to prove, just have the museum collect some of the "fallout" and send it for analysis... QED.

Default ..... up in smoke?

With that good exposure to passers-by on Rt-3, a taller smokestack could be a good spot to promote the business. You ever see some of the old NH smokestack mills like a paper mill or a tannery which have a smokestack with the name painted in vertical letters going down the stack?

A crematory business could have some fun with a vertical smokestack sign like "Here today - Gone Tomorrow" ...... or ...... "Highway to Heaven" ..... or ...... "Don't Drink n Drive" ..... or "Live Free or Die!"


Seems like its a problem looking for a taller exhaust chimney?

Default Can you extract DNA from ashes?

I found myself asking if DNA could be extracted from ashes to determine if the ashes were from human remains..... here's what I found out doing some basic research. It looks like the gentleman who owns the motorcycle museum could submit a sample to this lab and get pretty solid results. Prices for this type of test start at $350.00

"Because no two funeral homes or crematoriums are the same, the only way to know if DNA is present in cremated remains is to test them in a laboratory that specializes in and uses the latest technology in forensic DNA testing. The majority of the cremated remains sent to us typically will have fragmented bone and/or teeth that can be tested for trace amounts of DNA. Finding DNA in these cremated remains is contingent upon many different factors. The age of the equipment used, how the remains have been stored, how long ago the cremation was done, and the amount of remaining bone fragments are just some of the factors. No funeral home or crematorium have the same incinerator and do not cremate a body the same way."

You know testing ashes for dna probably has something to do with a trial court, but if you just look at the low height of the chimney in relation to its slightly uphill neighbor, the Motorcycle Museum, the chimney seems too low....... it's easy to see.

The bone or tooth fragments mentioned above may be present in cremated remains removed from the crematory chamber, but I doubt they'd be present in any ashes collected from the roof of an adjacent building. It's unlikely fragments would go up the chimney.

Default ..... who gets the gold?

For the best funny name ..... giving the 'Big Lake Bake' a round of applause!:


And, reading about tooth fragments present in the ashes makes me wonder what happens to any gold dental crowns or gold dental bridges? Who gets the gold ..... the family or the funeral biz?
