The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

"SOF" Womb to Tomb


Lesson Seventeen

Students of Flaunt in Lesson Seventeen in our book we go into details about milestones in your life. The all important occasions such as Baptisms, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, Debutante Balls, Weddings and alas Funeral arrangements.

As you can well imagine there are many fine points to take into consideration when planning any of these affairs. But we will leave all of this information for the book.

Why are we bringing up this Lesson? Well, we just found out something that is totally amazing and who knows may even catch on here. We can hear you now, "What, what, tell us!" O.K. calm down.

You can now forget the idea of keeping your relatives' ashes in urns. No we do not jest!! Those ashes can be turned into gem-like beads and placed in a dish. Stop that! We can see that look on your face. Now just be a little opened minded.

The South Koreans have come up with a unique way of keeping their relatives close by. As we said, be opened minded. You take your beloved decease's ashes to a company who then has them ground into a finer powder, which is then reheated and shaped into beads. No you do not wear them! Who asked that question? Go to the back of the classroom and hang you head for a minute!

The color and density of the beads vary from person to person but we understand the range of colors is from coral to topaz or gray and black. These can then be displayed at a mausoleum or kept at home and displayed there.

We quote from an article by Jung-Yoon Choi, from Icheon, South Korea: Jeon Gyeong-suk is one of the happy people who has done this. We quote Ms. Gyeong-suk, "I was so moved by how beautiful they were. The pearly blue color calmed me."

Only thing we don't like is they call them Death Beads. We think maybe Eternity Beads might be better.

Just saying,

Alexandra and Cate
