    An excuse to bring out the possibly apocryphal story about his mum. When CdeG retired, a British journalist asked Mme de Gaulle what she was most looking forward to in retirement. She replied, "A penis". Her husband leaned across and said, "I think, chérie, zat ze English pronounce it 'appiness."

When taking into account Chris Duncan's death his Bonus points had put Grim in the lead after Genesis P-Orridge's death in March. And Grim was on pace to win the game almost all of April until the last 48 hours. The April 29 Goldberg hit had given DeathImpends the lead and what looked like the win.................and then Sam Lloyd dies in the last hours few hours and due to other players having him in higher spots on their team DI goes from 1st to 4th on the very last day and a game which hade 3 different leaders on the last 3 days. Tip of the cap to JoeyRuss for a 3rd straight top 3 finish Tip of the cap to Death Impends who was 1 day away from a 4th straight win Tip of the cap to GUN who was an Ed Genson QO coming in or Goldberg living 2 days longer from winning. 2nd runner up finish,both within 50 points from the title.Wouldn't bet against you eventually breaking through and winning Congrats to Clorox Bleachman on winning Always an impessive player,it will be hard for anyone to top this achievment of winning a year long long pool not just in the last days but last hours. Thanks for playing everyone

    To put this in perspective, someone born on the day that this topic was created can now possess a driver's license and work a job part-time. Shouldn't have too long to wait indeed.

    My two aunts and uncle (deceased) on VE day (mum wasn't born until the 50's). My youngest aunt was born in 1941 I think and so my grandmother was allowed to evacuate with her kids to the country due to her daughter being so young. Anyone else have any images from VE Day?

    Happy 94th birthday! Couldn't find any specific news about his health but a lot of comments on actuell themes, so he seems to be fit and healthy, I guess.

    MMMDP Form Guide #8 Mary Portas Yes she's only 60 on 28th May and she's not knowingly ill either but bear with me. Firstly this is the Maryport Midsummer Madness Dead Pool so she has a name that is made for victory. But much more convincing are the following facts:- Her mother died when she was 16. Her father died when she was 18. She got married to a man in 1990 - that marriage died in 2003. She got commissioned to do a report into the future of the British High Street in 2011 - that high street is now in it's death throes. She married a woman in 2014 - that marriage died when they separated in 2019. Her hair is dyed. Dying and Mary Portas seem almost inseparable.

    Well, we are just six men from the end. Here is a quick update on the remaining strongmen: 1)Hyun Soong-jong (1919): Reportedly in failing health ahead of his 100th birthday last year. Has been steadily declining since the death of his wife in 2014. 2)Josip Manolic (1920): Among the lot he has the best health. Apparently no issuues and very frequent appaearance. Widowed in 2003, remarried a woman 30 years his junior in 2016. 3)Kim Yong-ju (1920, 1922): The youngest of the lot, born in August 1922, despite what Western sources say. Lost his post as VP of the Presidium in April 2019 and reportedly is not in the best health, has not appeared in public for more than a year. Suffering from cardiac illness, he received major heart surgery in Hungary in th 70s. Never married or had children. 4)Mustafa Ben Halim (1921): Widowed in 2016, lost a daughter in 2018 (Sherine Ben Halim Jafar, the cookbook writer). Very secluded these days, health unknown, but was decent enough till last year. Living in Dubai. 5)Francisco Morales Bermudez (1921): Widowed in 1998, remarried in 1999. Reportedly very frail, he got a life sentence in Italy last year. Still, was well enough to write and present a volume of memories. 6)Luis Echeverria (1922): Widowed in 1999, has an incredible history of health issues, going from massive buildup of fluid in the brain to recurrent pneumonia which regularly sent him in ICU around 2018. Now seems to be relatively well. When will it finish? Who's the strongest link? Only time will tell.
