    Derby Dead Pool 2020

    Aye, hopeful of a credible finish though my joker - Tom Smith - has been a disappointment to many people, vast tonnage of DDP points riding on him. Outside chance one of my list of the lost - Belso - might yet score in the manner of Jim Russell who netted DDP points long after his death when BBC Sport posted a list of significant motorsport figures who died in the year.

    Derby Dead Pool 2020

    Shameless self-interest motivates me to put this on a plate so... Kerslake Q/O: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-8750815/Ozzy-Osbourne-Uriah-Heep-drummer-Lee-Kerslake-dies-73-battle-prostate-cancer.html

    Hartlepool Deadlypool 2020

    Aye, hangin' in there despite being down to nine players with Belso lacking a q/o (though Jim Russell went ages without one then got a mention in the BBC round up of dead motorsport figures for the year - Belso may yet deliver in that dept) For the masses addicted to nowt other than watching this exciting competition my current survivors on whom maintaining my lead now rests are Gulpilil, centenarian former international cricketer Eileen Ash and James (dad of Charlotte) Church

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2021

    Chuck Feeney earned a fortune from a duty free shopping empire he co-founded but his disdain for money meant that for years he wore at $10 watch, only ever owned one pair of shoes and was prone to arriving at important meetings with his paperwork in a carrier bag. Newsworthy now because he's succeeded in giving away £6 billion - much of it in bequests to education. All the reports suggest the 89 year old is acting now because he ain't well. Thought, I'd - like - park a mugshot here. Obit chances fairly good since he's likely boosted them mightily with this philanthropic gesture.

    The Happy Birthday Thread

    To be fair to Twiggy she is looking good into her seventies - obitable but unlikely to be troubling those in search of safe picks for a while

    Derby Dead Pool 2020

    87 years reduces her total but at first glance on the DDP site looks mike more than 70 teams one way or another have RBG.

    The Happy Birthday Thread

    Pete Murray - 95 today If he got one more broadcast on Radio Two he smash Desmond Carrington's record of the oldest codger on the wheels of steel. Anyone know how he's doing?

    Donald J Trump

    I get the horrible feeling he'll close the gap, lose and still try hanging on claiming the greatest something or other against him at which point civil unrest will kick off for a bit

    Donald J Trump

    Oh aye and... Another allegation of sexual assault - she chose to come forward now because "it makes me sick" and "I just feel like I don't want to be quiet anymore" and "this is our president, this is the kind of thing he does and it's unacceptable." That said, the likes of The Guardian are piling this stuff up during the election campaign, eh? https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/sep/17/donald-trump-accused-of-sexual-assault-by-former-model-amy-dorris?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Other&fbclid=IwAR1rTW1L_7IqcAoZSmlVJRlXOWCUNA-XTNSPW4dwK5VbmyimNmvXqxj3SUo

    Donald J Trump

    Risked ABC (basically Democrat friendly) news and turned in a performance so bad those in his own party who oppose him basically turned the whole show into an anti-Trump ad https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/sep/16/trump-tv-town-hall-coronavirus-race-abc-news?fbclid=IwAR11CRDoEVRaFmkmlJrKLo1T0htL7udFOAWHVuJFOx_pyqIqx-HqCgAXzE0

    UK Singles Chart

    So, Medicine Head Both of those two still alive and John Fiddler maintains the name and records/performs under it However, the final hit single is the band as a five piece incl. the now deceased George Ford (bass) and Roger Saunders (lead guitar) both of whom I'm fairly sure were mentioned hereabouts on death. Ford for sure because he was also in Cockney Rebel. Drummer in the five piece hit making Medicine Head was Rob Townsend, newly freed at the time by the disbanded Family and eventually to join the Blues Band which - I'm fairly sure - is where he still thumps the tubs
