Ask someone how deep a grave is. The answer they give you is 6. WRONG! The modern grave is only 4 feet deep. Why? Caskets used to be made of wood instead of the modern means. …You were basically burying a wooden bubble that, after it decomposed, would collapse. Burying it 6 feet from the sod (top layer of soil where most of the grassroots are) would ensure that it wouldn't create a sink spot on the ground. The way people are buried today has much improved.\n.
\nThe body first goes into an expensive casket that is usually very pretty. Typically made with wood or steel, but very polished and made to look nice for the funeral. You can buy cheap caskets, but base prices start around $800 and can go up well past $4000. After this, the casket is placed in a concrete box with a flat lid. Some box & vault companies offer a "vault" where the lining of the lid has the same type of tar used to place windshields in cars. This stuff is very sticky and never dries. It seals the concrete and is very hard to break through for an excavation. This concrete box ensures that it will not sink and thus means it does not need to be buried as deep. A typical grave is 4 feet deep, 8 feet long, and 3 feet wide.\n.
\nTo start, we need to remove the sod. Sod is tough and holds together pretty well so we need to lift that up first. Think of it as cutting brownies out of a pan. You start by using a shovel that has a flat blade and cut the sod outlining your grave as well as straight down the middle. You then cut across every 11 inches. You will now see that you have 16 pieces of sod. I usually arrange my grave digging like so:\n.
|***********| \n|*Grave*|***********| 3 Sheets of plywood \n|*******|___________| for the sod and dirt \n|*******|***********| \n|*******|___________| \n|*******|***********| \n|*******|***********| \n|_______|___________| \n.
\nI then pry up the sod with the shovel and shave off a little on the bottom to make them flat. Remember, the thinner they are, the lighter they are, but I would keep at least 5-6 inches. I think start to place them in a semi-circle around in sets of two as they are coming out of the grave 2-across. I then can start to dig. Now, you much remember that you are placing something back into the ground so we have to compensate for the displacement. I've found that we can dispose of the top 2 feet of dirt and then shovel the rest in the middle of the semi-circle to fill in the grave after the casket and box have been lowered. Just digging the dirt is usually done with a spade. Keep at LEAST a wheelbarrow of dirt from the top 2 feet as you may need it in case you run out. Always have extra dirt on hand. There you go, the grave is dug, but definitely not done. If I open a grave a day before hand, I usually place 2-3 sheets of plywood over the whole so some idiot doesn't fall in and then cover both the hole and the dirt with a pinned down tarp.\n.
\nThe mortuary that helps setup for the casket where I live have artificial grass rugs to place over all the dirt so it still looks nice for the funeral. After the service is done, everyone has gone, and I get my check, I can start to fill in the grave. Filling in is pretty easy. Try to stand in the grave and use a square-nosed shovel to scoop the dirt and pull it towards you. After you get close to filling it, you want to have the dirt 3-4 inches from the top of the grave. Try to compact the dirt with your boots. We now want to start placing the sod back on. The way I have done it is filling it in so the sod is sticking up a couple inches, placing 1-2 sheets of my crappy plywood on top, and then pushing the sod down by driving over the grave a couple times with my 1-ton dump truck. Done correctly, the grave should be mildly flat. The grass is matted after using the ply wood so I usually use a blower to fluff the grass and blow away any excess dirt. Then, arrange the flowers everybody left and you're done! (MORE)

Male Warthog showing warts and tusks Warthogs (Phacochoerus africanus) get their English name from the large wart-like protuberances on their faces, which are also a way of telling male from female. Males have two prominent pairs of "warts" - a large one beneath each eye and one on each cheek, while females have only a much smaller pair beneath the eyes. These warts and their upper tusks distinguish warthogs from their relations, the bushpigs (Potamochoerus larvatus); a warthog's upper tushes are adapted canine teeth whch grow throughout its life. However, although the upper tusks look impressive, it is the shorter lower tusks honed to razor sharp edges by rubbing against the upper ones, which are the real weapons. Warthogs also differ markedly in their behaviour from bushpigs, partly because of their different habitats. Warthogs are generally animals of the savannah; bushpigs favour dense bush and forest. Warthogs are strictly diurnal while bushpigs are largely nocturnal; this may be because warthogs would be very vulnerable to predators in open savannah at night. Bushpigs are more genuinely omnivorous; warthogs are predominantly eaters of grass and grass roots, although they will readily eat sedges, herbs and fruit. They are of course pigs, however, and will eat pretty much anything if they have to; there are authenticated reports of them eating carrion and killing and eating snakes, although this is probably not typical behaviour. A colleague of mine was once asked by overseas tourists what warthogs hunt; he replied - correctly - that they don't, but was also unwise enough to make fun of the suggestion. Inevitably, later on the same game drive they came across warthogs feeding off a carcass, and his clients thereafter regarded him with great scepticism. Warthogs prefer to eat short grasses and especially those growing in damp places, which are more succulent. As the season wears on and grass is in short supply, they spend most of the day rooting for rhizomes (grass roots) using the hard cartilaginous disc on the end of their noses. They kneel down to do this and consequently are able to root in hard, sun-baked ground much more effectively than bushpigs, and develop large callouses on their front "knees" as a result. Female warthog on its knees preparing to dig out grass roots, Kruger National Park The warthogs' well-known habit of running with their tail stuck straight up in the air is also probably an adaptation to their grassland environment; in the rainy season, when the grass is long, it enables families or groups to see and follow each other. The basic unit of warthog social life is the matriarchal group (groups are called sounders) comprising one or occasionally more adult females and their young. Offspring, especially females, may stay with their mother for up to 27 months, but usually the previous year's young will leave to form yearling groups when the mother farrows again. Later, the males may form bachelor groups, but when they reach full maturity they are generally solitary, although a male may live temporarily with a group containing a female in oestrous. Unlike bushpigs, which live in permanent groups comprising a male and his harem, warthogs are joyously promiscuous and have no permanent ties. Warthogs are not territorial, but do have home ranges, frequently overlapping those of other groups. Within the home range they will have a number of burrows and will move from one to another. These are usually dug by aardvarks and then adapted by warthogs. They may also use erosion gullies. Their holes are very important to them: because their sparse hair is virtually no use as insulation and they have almost no sub-cutaneous fat, warthogs are very vulnerable to extremes of temperature and in cold weather remain huddled in their holes for warmth. Warthog peering from its burrow, Mashatu Game Reserve, Botswana They are also a refuge from predators: the mother, or the male if one is with the group, usually backs into the burrow and sleeps facing the entrance. When running for cover, the young warthogs dive head-first down the hole; the parent does a fast hand-brake turn at the last moment and slides in facing outwards. This is not much help against lions, which dig them out when desperate, but they can repel most other predators and the warthogs usually sit tight until they have gone. It is nevertheless not a good idea to stand peering down a warthog hole; it might be one that believes that attack is the best form of defence. (MORE)
