    Alex Higgins (And Snooker)

    Manuel Francisco, South African amateur Snooker and Billiards Champ, reportedly dead: We are more familiar with his brother Silvino Francisco of course.
  7. Matt Hancock, when discussing "post-viral COVID fatigue syndrome" i.e. damage to the lungs after COVID infection, he said this: "...this is a really serious problem for a minority of people who've had COVID, thankfully not me...." Well, there you are.

    Dynasty, Hmm. William Shelby should be better known, he wrote The Whispers "And The Beat Goes On" which is right up there with my top choons! According to this he's William B Shelby: https://secondhandsongs.com/artist/12925 and other sources indicate he's out of Los Angeles, CA. Still alive in December last year according to this Instagram post (Shelby's on the left): https://www.instagram.com/p/B6RLYD2JCag/?igshid=d2z9r2uywvr

    The Drifters. This interview from 2017 with Clyde Brown indicates he joined The Cleveland Singers in 1965 after singing in his church choir until the age of 18 - that's going to put him c.1946/47. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iOLTi1j7qI Apparently currently based in Cincinatti (might even be from there originally?) and still working last year: https://www.citybeat.com/music/spill-it/blog/21091540/cincinnati-folk-music-mike-oberst-of-the-tillers-celebrates-new-solo-album-release-this-weekend

    Trump hardly mentioned COVID at Mount Rushmore, but turns out his son's girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle has tested positive. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/jul/04/kimberly-guilfoyle-donald-trump-jrs-girlfriend-tests-positive-for-covid-19

    The Deathlist Poker Tournament 2020

    Remember when there were nine planets? Then Doctor Who thought it would smart to call a story The Tenth Planet? Now there's a whole generation of kids giggling, going well, where's the story about the missing ninth planet?! GAWD! Anyway, I digress. Earl Cameron has popped his clogs. Promoted into theoldlady's main team to replace the late Tim Brooks, she hits an A and gains 5 additional points. He remained on current leader Yorkshire Banker's subs bench. He draws Q Diamonds for 12 Points added. Leaderboard updated.

    Deathlist Dreaming

    Better if he was King Louis in honour of Mountbatten. Given what he was up to with Camilla when Diana was alive, he'd truly be the King Of The Swingers!

    British Science Fiction Series

    When the broadsheets were banging on about how good The Pallisers was compared with today's original dramas, you would think so. I'll bet when Susan Hampshire goes, there'll be obits quicker than a teenager's orgasm while watching Pornhub.

    The controversy surrounding Corey Hill spurred me to open a topic. UFC announced his death but the missus swears he's alive. http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/mma-cagewriter/corey-hill-s-wife-denies-ufc-report-that-her-husband-has-denied-022023494.html
