Hi all and Niven. Years ago I too used to get quite a lot of window
suicides, that was when we had clean windows. Now that my dear one is no
longer living no-one chases me about the windows anymore and they have a
beaut coat of dust and rain marks; after all, there's only me looking out
and no-one looking in, so who cares? Voila, no more suicides, no more
dramas, and next door's cat stays hungry.
Universal remedy - divest yourselves of picky partners, easy. Why live with
the hassle?, give yourself some peace.
