I for one am well tired of this nonsense about putting on a LJ "when it gets rough". It's a load of bollox. Far too many people drown beside their boats in calm water. As someone who has had to search seabeds and coastlines for a stinking crab riddled corpse, I can attest to the fact that getting a body bag for a "closed coffin" funeral is a price that no family should have to pay for someone's danger buzz.
