    So nice to meet you both on the Morbid Anatomy trip… I hope to see you again and hear about the things you are doing in your research. Until then be well! Nicole

    Hello- I found you! I wanted to say how nice it was to meet you both on the Morbid Anatomy trip, you seem like such genuine, interesting people. I will check in periodically and listen to your podcast in hopes that you have some updates on your research that I can learn from vicariously. 😉 Good luck and hope to see you in NY sometime! -Nicole (Furi)

    I am writing a paper on the culture of food and death, your site has been a great place to find some sources. Thanks! Do you have any other favorites?

  5. annsimeoli – I am SO pleased the site has been useful for you. As I’m sure you know, sources for this kind of research are hard to find and are few and far between. The only other blog I can enthusiastically recommend that does have some food/death related content is Afternoon Tease. You can get there by looking at the right hand column – it is listed at the top of the Blogroll section. Just click on the link and you are there.
    Best wishes to you.
