    Boxing Clever?

    Somewhat puzzling that the article refers to his "untimely passing". He was 87

    World War II Veterans

    Daniel Ivin (wiki), Croatian writer, politician and human rights activist, dead at 89. Child soldier during World War II and he was the youngest name on the List of notable surviving veterans of World War II on Wiki. Ivin was born in 1932. The youngest names on there now are 8 individuals born in 1930... meaning that there are no notable WWII vets under 90 now?

    Read Any Good Books Lately?

    Yes, I entirely agree with you, @Bibliogryphon. I have a weakness for Stephen R. Lawhead. When I was very young, I read The Empyrion Saga ("The Search for Fierra" and "The Siege of Dome"), who had a big impact on me. We agree on something.

    Igor Kirillov, USSR Central Television news anchor who read the death announcements of Soviet leaders Brezhnev, Andropov and Chernenko is still alive and will be 89 later this year. This was the one for Chernenko.

    Read Any Good Books Lately?

    Currently reading 'Reilly - Ace of Spies' by Andrew Cook. Bit stodgy in places, but does a good job of undermining the legend (as told by the lying, murdering, thieving subject himself).

    Read Any Good Books Lately?

    Just done a bit of Research I have been thinking about for a while. With the demise of Sir Terry Pratchett and Terrance Dicks I was trying to work out which living authors I have read most books by. A lot of these are genre writers and not many of them will bother us here in the near future. 1. Stephen Lawhead (28) 2. Justin Richards (18) 3. Stephen R. Donaldson (15) 4. Roger Macbride Allen (12) 5. Stephen Cole (11) 6. David A McIntee (10) =. Kate Orman (10) =. Gareth Roberts (10) 9. Christopher Bulis (9) =. Paul Cornell (9) =. Steve Lyons (9) =. John Peel (9) 13. Ben Aaronovitch (8) =. Trevor Baxendale (8) =. Paul Leonard (8) =. Larry Niven (8) =. Gary Russell (8)

    Sister Wendys' Odyssey

    As a follower of Sister Catherine on Twitter (left-footedness never leaves a boy), she did write a piece for her blog a few weeks back that suggested she was coming to the end of her story.

    The English Language

    I’m almost disappointed they didn’t use one of my favourites, ‘mispronounciation’.

    Always a fan of Pass Notes in the Guardian. One that was probly pacifically designed to push the nucular button of @Toast @time @The Quim Reaper (and indeed myself) today. https://www.theguardian.com/science/2021/jun/23/annoying-mispronunciations-do-they-make-you-go-nucular-probly
