    Your shocking spelling of Caesar led me to puzzle as to what the years would have been called at the time of his reign as obviously BC and AD must be a later change as no one recognised Christ as Christ when he was born. The answer is he became Caesar in AUC 727 and would therefore have died in AUC 767. AUC stands for Ab Urbe Condita which means 'From the founding of the city', the city being Rome obviously. If the name of the years had not been changed we would now be in AUD 2773 and would never have had to worry unnecessarily about the Millennium Bug 20 years ago. So thanks - if you had spelled it Caesar correctly I would never have pondered and would remain ignorant.

    Never heard of her. But, to be truthful, I've never heard of James Whale either.

    It was audio only due to his age. He did sound a bit slurry throughout, which I guess is expected for a 95 year old that had brain surgery a mere year ago:

    Tonight will probably be Jimmy Carters last ever speech to a Democrat c onvention. I hope he makes the most of it, and compares his quiet decency and respect for democratic principles to Donald Trumps chaotic crooked presidency.It could be a powerful moment, if it's clear this could be Carters last major speech. At the end of this week i expect Joe Biden to extend his lead in the polls to 15-20 %. Even Trump supporters must now be abandoning him as they see the mess he's made of corona virus !

    She was known to be fecked before New Year - "planning funeral now", lots of talk that didn't suggest Stage 1 - hence her appearance on 89 DDP teams that year.

    Jokes aside, if the People's Princess Jade Goody (heh) didn't make the list, someone much less famous and much less dying wont. Nor has the presumably fairly healthy Rula Lenska, who I mention just because her name popped into my head there and I thought "there's a name I've not heard in a while".

    Permanently banning someone for a sending a few PMs containing a bit of verbally typed abuse appears to be a bit completely over the fucking top? Surely not just me who views it that way?

    Sadly it seems that Jimmy Carter might be approaching the end of his long and amazing life.His non appearance at John Lewis funeral is the biggest sign yet that his condition is very poor.

    16 years ago this week Jimmy Carter gave one of the keynote speeches at the 2004 Democrat Convention .It was a few weeks short of his 80th birthday and he mentioned it saying 'if I make it'. Well he made it and then some! Who would have thought he'd still be here 4 conventions later! If he were to die just before the election would it give the Democrats a boost ?

    Used her final energy to save child Both sad and incredible if true - so close to exhaustion that you are about to drown but still got the strength to lift your child into a boat but absolutely no more to save yourself.
