This is an anecdote and doesn't prove a thing, but I can't help sharing: My grandmother was murdered by the guy who cut her grass!

No, really, I'm not joking. No one will ever be 100% sure, but she died suddenly under quite suspicious circumstances: the younger man who gardened for her (and who had insinuated himself into her good graces to the tune of several loans and gifts) found her sprawled out on her floor. Phone records show a call from my grandmother's house to the UK (where the gardener's girlfriend lived) right around the time he supposedly found her and called an ambulance.

I posted this story on the SDMB a number of years ago, so doubters can verify I'm not making the story up for this thread.

Sorry for the tangent. Carry on.

If I waited for memory to serve, I'd starve.
