    Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter just became the longest-married presidential couple, more than 75 years and counting. https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/18/politics/jimmy-rosalynn-carter-longest-married-presidential-couple-trnd/index.html

    No of course it is totally genuine. He was competing with Kirk Douglas and Vera Lynn on yesterday's episode but he was the only one to manage to actually kick the bucket. The other two had a few swings at it but couldn't get the leverage from their wheelchairs to get a good contact. They also showed a special repeat show from September 17th where Leah Bracknell surprised everybody by beating Jacques Chirac and Ginger Baker after a slow motion action replay because in real time it looked like both Chirac and Baker had kicked the bucket before her.

    Please kindly put or shut up. I'm back. My game will be updated - probably tomorrow or the day after depending on a few factors. Yes that would my game, that I am committed to running when I'm around. The infrequency of updates as been slower recently admittedly due to a) an ongoing medical issue and b) being banned (not a medical issue, a being a see you next Tuesday issue, but frankly anyone who's entered this after 5 years of me being on the forum knows it's liable to prolonged interludes due to me being a see you next Tuesday. I'm more suprised that anyone is suprised that it is the case that I have unsuprisingly been requested to vacate them room for interludes during the course of this game). The game is not to be resuscitated as it did not die, it merely went on holiday. Normal service (think South Western trains not Japanese bullet) will resume with my reappearance.

    Sad though inevitable news, though she well to survive as long as she did. She was one of the very few actors I never met on Emmerdale, mainly because most of her filming was done on location at the Harewood set, but she was by all accounts a lovely person and I never heard anyone say a bad word about her. Indeed, she was a favourite of quite a lot of the staff as despite being, certainly for a time, probably the most famous and best-known character in the soap, she never let it go to her head and there were no airs and graces with other actors, staff or fans, with whom she was particularly generous with her time. I'm not a fan of the hippy-dippy new age stuff but if it gave her hope and positivity after such a grim prognosis then I'm glad it helped her live out her remaining time with contemplative happiness, gratitude of life and peace of mind. RIP

    Jimmy Carter is someone who is going to be in good spirits even on his deathbed.

    Since Charles Lane died in July 2007 the number 4 slot on the Death List has been a very safe place to be, at least for the next twelve months, with not a single hit. Prince Phil currently keeping the sequence going. For a place so high up on the list that is quite surprising however it is not the safest place to find yourself. That would be at number 32 where no-one has died whilst holding the slot since Lionel Hampton on 30th August 2002. This year (and last year) Valery Giscard D'Estaing has responsibility of keeping the sequence going.
