THE ADVOCATE 473
VOL. 78 PART 3 MAY 2020
In Doe v. Doe, 2010 NY Slip Op 20310 (29 Misc. 3d 483), the Queen’s County
Supreme Court considered “whether a court should vacate a final decree of
divorce solely on the grounds that the parties have allegedly reconciled or
are in the process of attempting a reconciliation”. The court noted that “the
famous writer Cervantes (1547–1616), known fully as Miguel de Cervantes
Saavedra, author of the famous Don Quixote, once stated: ‘The worst reconciliation
is better than the best divorce.’” After careful analysis, however, the
court determined that it could not assist: it noted it “congratulates the plaintiff
and the defendant on their professed reconciliation, but reminds them
that the role of the court ended last year when it issued a final decree of
divorce. The remedy for these former litigants is to make new vows and a
fresh start by remarrying, in their discretion.”
With whole fleets of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft still grounded on the tarmacs of
their owner airlines, one is driven to wonder what airlines are the safest. Well
we know that. There are three major airlines that have never killed a passenger.
They are: Qantas, Hawaiian Airlines and Finnair. Qantas is consistently
at the head of the list of airlines with the least number of major incidents.

Many travellers heading to and from the Kootenays will be familiar with
Osoyoos’ windmill, set alongside Highway 3. It is now part of an amusement
park and used to be the site of a Dutch gift shop and bakery.

One of the principles of business economy is that you should always own
what appreciates in value and rent what depreciates. That being so, it
comes as a surprise that nobody has thought to rent baby clothes. Well, a
shop has opened in London, England that is doing just that. It rents the
clothes to the parents, who return them when they have been outgrown.
The shop washes them, mends them and rents them out again to the next
baby. No more hand-me-downs.
