How can I listen to live Ashes cricket radio commentary in the US? During the first leg of the series played in England, I listened to Test Match Special via the "British Radios" app but all I get now when I choose the BBC Radio 5 link is a message telling me that "this part of the program is unavailable due to rights restrictions." I cannot access the ABC through the Grandstand website. Clicking on the live commentary link gets me ads for Grandstand but no Jim Maxwell. The link on the Cricket Australia site is dead. Google hasn't helped me. I'd rather listen on my iPhone or iPad (ios7) but I'll resort to a laptop if needed. Is there a free solution I've overlooked? Is there a paid option I haven't found? If it turns out that I can't listen to broadcasts can someone please explain why?

FictionFilter! I can't believe I'm asking this, but.. here goes: What could you put in an urn that would be mistaken for the ashes of a loved one? Oh god, that looks even worse now that I've actually typed it! Luckily, it's only for a story I'm writing. [more inside]

Would someone tell me, please, the origin and meaning of the phrase "ashes in your mouth"? I've googled like mad and only come up with song lyrics.

Is anyone aware of any regulations regarding the transportation of the ashes of a deceased person from the US into Canada?
