    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    Sylvia Plath's son? He was Ted Hughes' son too of course. I almost forgot that.
  2. What did I sound like?

    1. Lord Fellatio Nelson

      Lord Fellatio Nelson

      Without an accent, a bit like the voice over for Master Chef.

      I suspect, however, you have a slight Scouse twang to your voice!! :D

    2. Handrejka


      Well Scousers wouldn't think so, but it's definitely there when I recite the days of the week. It's not possible for me to say Tuesday without giving away my origins. Most of the time it's just generic northern.

    Carry On Dying

    It was an odd episode all round I thought. Have Tony Hawkes and Paul Merton fallen out, they seems oddly snappy with each other. I know that's part of the game but it didn't seem like it was good humoured the way in normally does.

    Carry On Dying

    She was also in The Smashing Bird I used to know with the recently deceased Sheila Steafel.
  5. I was in Cologne too. I wonder if we've met.

      Really? When did you live there? I lived in Cologne up to 1997, afterwards in Düsseldorf. Do you speak German?

    2. Handrejka


      I was in Cologne from 2000 - 2002. It's a lovely city, I'd move there again if I had the choice. I actually have an MA in German Translation though my everyday spoken German is a little rusty now.

    9/11 anniversary.

    I was living in Germany at the time working as a teacher. As it was near the start of a new school year one of the teachers was having a get together at hers . I went to hers to help out and was greeted by 'I've just heard some shocking news' My first though was that she had some terrible gossip about one of the teachers, my next though was that Bush had been assassinated. I couldn't really process the news when she turned the television on. The get together went ahead and, as awful as this sounds, we enjoyed ourselves and although we discussed the events and how terrible they were they were not the only thing we talked about. I don't think we really realised how awful the whole thing was until the next few days.

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2020

    Gulpilil will obit on the strength of Walkabout alone I'll wager. I'll admit I've never heard of Palau.

    Deathlist Dreaming

    Yes it is a bit.

    Deathlist Dreaming

    Last night I dreamt that one of the Barbi Twins had died, think it was Sia, and that Barry Cryer also died and there was uproar because the BBC news lead with Sia's death over Barry's. On the news story of Barry's death they showed a bit of a show thought to be lost which was a bit like Punchlines but for obituaries. I also dreamt that when I got to work someone had shat on my computer.

    Famous farmers and agricultural people

    Does Simon Groom still have his farm in Derbyshire? He missed the 60th anniversary of Blue Peter last year prompting speculation about his health.

    The Poseidon Adventure Cast

    That's sad news. The Poseidon Adventure is another of favourites. She was also in this which inspired a Carpenters song and I have to confess that was the first thing I thought of. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0617035/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_71

    I think @Toast and @Lord Fellatio Nelson have answered that. Richard Bradford was bloody gorgeous in his younger days and it gives me something nice to look at while I'm bored/infuriated at work.

    Confused was my reaction too Toast. This is image on the mug. https://www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&id=BDEEA063547429B11689BCF9FDBFD40BAE8730E2&thid=OIP.DI-mLDSzyPEUyoUV33K6twHaJA&mediaurl=https%3A%2F%2Fs-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com%2F236x%2F83%2F08%2F23%2F830823292cac179c2db93b1c8315fe4b.jpg&exph=248&expw=204&q=Richard+Bradford+Man+in+a+Suitcase&selectedindex=7&ajaxhist=0&vt=0&eim=1,2,6

    Changed mine again, this time to the late Richard Bradford. I have a similar image of him on my work mug and two colleagues, independently , have asked me if it was Donald Trump on there. I can't see any resemblance at all. What do you reckon?

    Do You Actually Research?

    Well pointless Celebrities has started again so my research extends to 'hmm how is Melvyn Hayes looking?' Edit - Actually he's not looking too bad.
