Death Café Lille
Feb 28 was Lille's 1st death cafe. It was posted on meetup. 25 people registered, 7 attended, the most important item discussed being the refusal of the French govt to authorize euthanasia, the right to die in dignity. People can't understand why Belgium has it but not France.

A solution is to move to New Zealand where there's a club of seniors that builds its own coffins: cheap underground furniture. Read Michelle Innis' March 1 2017 NYT article.
