    It's almost certainly the hair and my fondness for retro fashions. David Cassidy is another one I get told I look like, but I can see where they are coming from with that one.

    I've been told I look like Richard Beckinsale which makes me think I would have made a better looking man than I do woman.

    Bands at The Great Gig in the Sky

    That same year all of Brazilian satirical rock band Mamonas Assassinas were killed in an aeroplane crash. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mamonas_Assassinas Wasn't there a French disco band who were all killed in a house fire or did I dream that?

    I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue Radio 4

    Me too. I also thought he would outlive Richard O'Sullivan, his co-star in Me and My Girl.

    I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue Radio 4

    So sad. He was one of those I thought would go on forever.

    Tom Lehrer

    You frightened me when I saw this until I remember it's his birthday. Always liked this quote of his .'' It is sobering to consider that when Mozart was my age he had already been dead for a year.”

    Boris Johnson

    Well he'd be another dead blond for Elton to sing about.

    Notable Coronavirus Victims

    Whoever wrote this listverse list has an interesting take on notable. Terrence McNally is the only one I had heard of. https://listverse.com/2020/04/01/top-10-notable-people-who-have-died-of-coronavirus/
  15. The bank I work for is being quite shitty too, nothing new there really, but we have had a case of the virus on our floor, also another colleague has just lost his granddad to it, we were told initially to go to the contingency site bit problematic for me as I don't drive and colleagues are not allowed to provide lifts due to social distancing, I don't want to get a taxi for same reason and busses are full of germs at the best of times, but at least the building is not contaminated. We then get told that we should go to our usual site so we are working in a contaminated building. No option to work at home. We are not being provided with hand sanitiser. We don't know who the colleague is so no idea how much social interaction we might have had with them already. They think they can keep moral going by buying us the odd smoothie or bacon barm. Well that likely didn't make much sense but I always waffle when I'm angry.

    Derby Dead Pool 2020

    Maybe I've missed it but I don't think Andree Melly has had a write up yet has she?

    What are you doing to kill the boredom.

    I still have to go into work as I'm a key worker, not one of the worthy NHS sort but front line financial workers are considered key. I have to carry a letter round with me at all times in case I'm questioned by the police. So it's all more or less business as usual for me, expect I have to think about sorting my own lunch out now and not relying on coffee shops.

    Also he was inspired to write Alma after reading her- Alma Mahler's- obituary. He would fit in here, I'm sure.

    The third cast member of Scrooge to die in just over a month, after Frances Cuka and Michael Medwin.

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    Still no confirmed cases on The Isle Of Man but it's only a matter of time. It has not prevented all the panic buying though.

    And Geoffrey Hayes and Bill Maynard.
  24. Ok, let's try. Not as formal as the previous photos but I think it looks quite fun. Back row from left unknown, Great Great Aunt Clara, unknown front row Great Aunt Evelyn {there is a small possibility she is still alive}, Great Uncle James. Evelyn was born in 1923 and emigrated to Canada in the 50s. I have never met her. We do know she was still with us a decade ago as she was in touch with another family member but after that we don't know. That side of the family tend to be quite long living so maybe. Got mixed u with who was who. It's the lady in the middle who is my great-great aunt Clara. She died in 1932 we can probably date the photograph to around 1930. I'm not sure who the ladies flanking her are probably her daughters.
