The Ups and Downs of Being Dead

Fifty-seven year old Robert Malone is the CEO of a successful clothing store chain and married to a former model. When his doctor tells him he is dying of cancer, he refuses to go quietly. Instead of death, Robert chooses cryonics. He knows it’s a long shot. His frozen body will be stored in liquid nitrogen for the next seventy-five years, and then he’ll wake up in the future. Maybe. If technology figures out a way to bring him back.
He’s willing to take that gamble.
What he doesn’t realize is that he won’t lie in some dreamless state all that time. His soul is very much awake, and free to move about, just like the others who were frozen before him.
He discovers that he can ride in the cockpit with the pilots, but he can’t turn the page of a magazine. He can sit in the oval office with the president, but he can’t prevent a child from dashing in front of a car. He can’t work, or eat, or sleep. These obstacles make it difficult to fall in love, and virtually impossible to reconcile with the living.
Over the next several decades, Robert Malone will have plenty of time to learn The Ups and Downs of Being Dead.

Widely known as the crown jewel of St. Augustine wedding venues, the Lightner Museum wedding venue is more than an iconic treasure, it is an iconic place located in an iconic section of St Augustine, the oldest city in the United States.

You will not find a more exquisite location to get married in Florida.  That’s why the Lightner Museum, formerly opened in 1888 as the grand Hotel Alcazar and a place where culture meets history, is one of the most celebrated wedding venues in St Augustine, Florida.
