  2. The 3rd Crowdsourced Deathlist (2018 edition)

    Oh drat it would have been a third hit for the crowdsourced deathlist if we had collectively voted to have kept Nanette Fabray on the list

  10. Hollywood Survivors

    Fabray was a Vaudeville performer too. Diana Serra Cary is the only Vaudeville survivor now I think.
  11. Derby Dead Pool 2018

    You might also add the apocryphal fact that I was Ruth Negga's first crush...
  12. Hollywood Survivors

    Never had a June Foray like DeathImpends, or a Mary Wilson like msc. But the trio of Rose Marie, Nanette Fabray, and Bill Macy came pretty close. 2 out of 3 dead now.
  13. Dead Architects

    'the area' presumably being 'Sheffield'.
  14. Derby Dead Pool 2018

    Guilty as charged although I'm sure Vic & Bob made that gag as well...
  15. Hollywood Survivors

    That's a shame. She was good.
  16. Hollywood Survivors

    Picked her in every Hartlepool Deadly Pool I've participated in... alas, always down low.
  17. The Hare's Death Pool

    No No, Nanette, you were supposed to go later in the year. Fabray is a unique hit on this pool, just an hour or so before the updated leaderboard.
  18. That's Entertainment!

    For completeness, Nanette Fabray has died aged 97: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/23/obituaries/nanette-fabray-star-of-tv-and-stage-comedies-dies-at-97.html

    I understand the joke, however not being an 8 year old, I have higher wit to pleasure myself with.

    John Quincy Adams gained total independence and freedom on this day 170 years ago, aged 80.
  22. The Deathlist Cup 2018

    Right, for some reason I've gone all optimistic and sent my March team to msc. It's all terribly exciting down at the Thistle Wanderers United pitch, the only failures are the ability of each team to score and the floodlights.
  23. The Weather

    Not often you see a yellow warning telling you "Some rural communities could become cut off. Power cuts may also occur and other services, such as mobile phones may be affected". That's an Amber/Red warning in waiting and will be upgraded later in the weekend early into next week. Only reason it's only yellow is because of how far away the event is in weather terms (on the edge of high confidence). Also fully expected snow and ice warnings to be released for over areas by Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday based on current chart output, the usual "subject to change" caveat applies. The government has issued a Level 3 Cold Weather Alert for NHS and other care organisations, government bodies to expect extremely high demand on there services and major effect to provision. The highest level is Level 4 - Cold Weather Alert which would only be used in a state of National Emergency. Weather seen next week has the potential in some areas to be significantly disruptive for a Level 4 alert to be released, however that is unlikely. https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/cold-weather-alert/#?tab=coldWeatherAlert Your mileage may vary with snow amounts, but there is potential for blizzards from this set up into the latter part of next week. Keep an eye on your local forecast and top your heating meter up - even without snow it will be very very cold for the UK full stop - never mind this time of year.
  24. Dead Drummers

    Pete May, long term drummer for Cliff Richard and who was briefly in Manfred Mann's Earth Band, has died, according to Sir Cliff himself.

    Nolans were an answer on Mastermind tonight. She's doomed (I tell ye, doomed).
