    Nigel Kneale & Judith Kerr

    Her last book was published in 2017 and she was still giving interviews and going to functions so I was lulled into a false sense of security. The only thing I had her picked in was my Generations team. Massive miss for my DDP theme team.

    Nigel Kneale & Judith Kerr

    Terrible news. Judith Kerr was one of the greatest kids writers of all time, imo.

    I liked Nan Winton as a pick, sort of classy pick that elevates the DDP imho.

    20th Century Americans Sitcoms

    Tonight on ABC, there was a live-action recreation of All In The Family and The Jeffersons, featuring Woody Harrelson as Archie, Jamie Foxx as George Jefferson, Wanda Sykes as Weezie, and Will Ferrell as Tom Willis, among others. It was followed by a short documentary on the impact of these shows on American culture. At the end, Marla Gibbs and Norman Lear made special appearances. They both looked quite good for their advanced ages.

    Derby Dead Pool 2019

    Nan Winton is my first ever unique hit (she's on my theme team). I didn't realize she'd gone, so thanks to whoever did. I'm sorry she's dead, but I'm glad I chose her for more than just having got the points - I didn't know who she was until I researched my theme team last December, and now she gets a write-up. I'm pleased she's getting the attention. Funny thing is, I almost didn't include her, because I wasn't sure if she was still alive. She was the only one on my team I couldn't verify as still living, and I was considering dropping her from my team next year for that reason......

    The Chequered Flag

    Got badly burnt, lived, racing again within 6 week, then won the title a year later. What more can you say? Good unique for the Kid. Had a feeling he was on limited time but was thinking more 2021-ish.
