    Just a bit of appreciation for the alleged "snowflake generation" who were hit completely suddenly, same as the rest of us true, but we had bad things Thatcher happen so were not so surprised and better equipped for it. I'm absolutely amazed and encouraged by their resilience so far and the younger members here are to be applauded for their utter courage if you ask me. They really have shown so much bravery in the face of this utter shitstorm. My daughter had an entire pregnancy and birth without her mother (or any support) due to restrictions. I don't know when I will be ever able to hold the wee girl, but my loss is nothing measured against hers without her mother. I think we're totally forgetting the sacrifices made by young people. I see them though, and thank fuck. Their sense and maturity really gives me hope. Unless that's just elite DLers?

    By that I think SC means he knows how to copy and paste large chunks from articles, and he wants credit for this. A big boy sticker for you.

    I disappoint myself. Still look on the bright side eh? Whilst I still have the ability to act like I'm seven years old, I've not sunk to the depths of crying publicly every time somebody I half heard of dies, or posting about all the things I've not taken part in. So there's hope, there's always hope.

    Not really sure where to put this, but thought it was worth dumping on DL somewhere as there are a few "oh yeah, him/her" or "never heard of them before but they'd get a QO for sure" types on this... Here are the oldest living people with profile entries on the prestigious website Who's Who. In other words, anybody who is anybody in British "high society", plus a few global figures who have had some kind of official link with the UK at the same level. I've linked Wiki pages for those who have them: Alexander Henry Hermann b. 1917 / Diplomat Francis Jackson CBE b. 1917 / Organist and Master of the Music, York Minster, 1946–1982 Karl-Günther von Hase b. 1917 / German Ambassador to the UK, 1970–1977 Dame Frances Campbell-Preston b. 1918 / Lady-in-waiting to the Queen Mother, 1965–2002 Sir Lloyd Geering CBE b. 1918 / New Zealand theologian His Honour John David Hayman BEM b. 1918 / Circuit judge Prof. Brenda Milner b. 1918 / Neuropsychologist / 2021 DDP unique pick Joyce Reynolds b. 1918 / Classicist / 2021 DDP unique pick Stanley James Clayton b. 1919 / Town Clerk of the City of London, 1974–1982 Emmanuel Evans-Anfom b. 1919 / Commissioner for Education and Culture in Ghana, 1978–1988 9th Viscount Falmouth b. 1919 / Hereditary peer and landowner, Member of the House of Lords, 1962–1999 Captain Alwyne Farquharson MC b. 1919 / Chief of Clan Farquharson and Scotland's oldest clan chief Prof. James Lovelock CBE b. 1919 / Independent scientist known for coining the Gaia hypothesis / 2021 DDP pick Sir Humphrey Moon, 7th Baronet b. 1919 / Aristocrat Leslie Reid b. 1919 / Diplomat William Good Robinson b. 1919 / Deputy Secretary, Department of the Civil Service, Northern Ireland, 1978–1980 Victor Ross b. 1919 / Chairman of Reader's Digest, 1978–1984 George Girdwood Stewart MC b. 1919 / Decorated veteran and Cairngorms conservationist Diana Armfield b. 1920 / Artist / 2021 DDP unique pick Colin Hinton Curtis b. 1920 / Chairman of the Metropolitan Public Abattoir Board, 1971–1981 John Cruickshank VC b. 1920 / Last living VC recipient from World War II / 2021 DDP pick Prof. James Dannatt b. 1920 / Architect Sir Patrick Duffy b. 1920 / MP, 1963–1966, 1970–1992 Edmond H.

    RIP. Has anyone checked on CoffinLodger? He'll be weeping uncontrollably whilst watching the Sound of Music and tucking into a big tub of Ben and Jerry's no doubt.
