  5. 2018 Names for 2018

    I was going to do an ice hockey theme team as is for the DDP, and I managed to find a Facebook list of oldest ex-NHL players, so it helped with both that and this one Some of them are rather obscure as far as playing time in the league goes, but that's why they're here and not in the DDP list Deathray's free to clarify, of course, but given the fact that he was okay with non-English obits, I'm sure proper obits in local papers should be okay as well!

    My theme team Ice Dancing is showing under the name I Hope You Had The Time of Your Life. Surprised at the number of drop 40 picks I have in my main team, though I'm happy to see Elias and Vervroot made the list!

    Link's still working fine for me? Also, local obit: https://www.baytoday.ca/local-news/nhls-oldest-ex-player-dies-in-mattawa-817355

    Oldest living former NHLer Chick Webster has died: http://www.martynfh.com/book-of-memories/3240867/Webster-John-Robert-Chick/service-details.php No obit yet that I can find, either local or international. This should make Jim Conacher the new oldest living former NHLer at 96.

    My first hit - Mendeniyet Shahberdiyeva - got points from a translated obit. You should be fine
  11. Rumours

    My opinion on whether Harry's Charles' son aside, just want to point out that even if he was illegitimate, he'd still get Spencer genes from Diana. It's Windsor genes that're in question, so he could very well have gotten the red hair from his mum even if Charlie isn't his dad.
  12. 2018 Names for 2018

    @Deathray said all obits regardless of language were good, as long as they were a legit newspaper obit or summat, so if you can get something from a local paper of something, you should be good to go!

    http://thehill.com/homenews/media/368166-steve-bannon-stepping-down-from-breitbart?__twitter_impression=true Bannon 'steps down' from Brietbart, now without a job. Chances of suicide watch? I say 50/50 - either that or he finds some new nut to back in the elections in an attempt to win back some credibility with the right wing. I hear Joe Arapio is standing for Senate election in Arizona...

    Some mentioned in the past pages the Alan Deakin was a hit for them. No QO yet, but thought I'd mention it just in case Spade wants to add List of the Lost people to his first update as well. Jim Anderton - Reuters obit
  15. Ideas and Possibilities for 2019

    US Rep. Elijah Cummings has been hospitalised for the second time in a week after previously being hospitalised for a 'bacterial infection' and undergoing a 'minor procedure.' Wouldn't think much of it if it weren't for the fact that his wife dropped out of the Maryland governor's race for personal reasons a couple of hours before this was announced - have to imagine it's serious enough if she's dropping out despite the election not being for a couple months.
