Haven't had a KFC since Col Sanders stopped shaving, so can't say I'm heartbroken.  Only chain fast "food" franchise in my town is Subway, and that struggles against locals making sandwiches out of actual bread and stuff.

KFC is the only fast food I ever really liked, and I haven't had any for donkey's years. My daughter says that I am delusional in claiming that they used to serve little pots of mashed potatoes. She says they never did and have always  serve fries.

I'm not surprised they broke with DSL. I saw a documentary about DSL just the other day which showed their performance and systems to be abysmal.

Yeah, it's now a fact we will have to learn to live with. The law will become active in 2020.

Fair enough Rosie, I just didn't want to discuss family members, it would get a bit personal.

Like I say, think we just plain old disagree on this one.

Sigh...I was not asking you to discuss dead family members, but to realise that people have different sensibilities and should not be forced to submit to such legal demands if they really don't want to.

I'm not discussing dead family members with you, all I'll say is I'm sorry for your loss.

Okay so I was going to let this go, but.......

"The issue is about government invading our private lives." Is it possible to interfere with someone's life when they aren't actually alive? It feels almost oxymoronic.

"I read some years ago that Florida (or was it Texas?) had no shortage of organs after training doctors how to effectively  ask patients and their families to donate." This would appear to suggest that most people, or certainly an increased number would agree to organ donation when armed with all the facts, so why not put those facts out there beforehand and if people still object they can opt out. This seems like a good solution to me.

The forcing of a decision by government is an intrusion into our lives. Many people don't even want to make a will, let alone decide on donation. Several members of my own family died intestate because they did not want to consider making a will. Perhaps they should have been forced by government...

I would love to know what they could actually do with mine  animated laugh

I'm sure you would be useful, YM, even if it's just your skin or cornea.  Shocked

Personally, I always find after thinking I haven't had a KFC in a while, that when I do I'm underwhelmed.
