Purdy - was my Cats name!

Which is what we Irish (Northern/Southern!) sometimes refer to for potatoes.

Also it was Joanna Lumleys character in the Advengers and a hair cut at one time!

Samsara:

In most Indian philosophical traditions, including the Hindu, Buddhist, Sikhism and Jain systems, an ongoing cycle of birth, death, and rebirth is assumed as a fact of nature. These systems differ widely, however, in the terminology with which they describe the process and in the metaphysics they use in interpreting it. Most of these traditions, in their evolved forms, regard Saṃsāra negatively, as a fallen condition which is to be escaped.

Actually, it's just the name of the perfume I wear
