    Things To Do While Waiting For Death

    Get up early to watch this Luckily it didn't zap my electrics.

    Death In The Family

    Sorry to hear that, drol. That sort of death is kind to the person who dies, but so much harder for those left behind.

    Fort William Football Club

    I just get "access denied" when I try to view it.

    Fort William Football Club

    There's probably one in here Or you could consider something like this
  5. Spooky, I just watched a film that his daughter was in. ETA Just read the BBC obit which says he "was married to Bridget, also an actor". Awkward.

    Last of the Summer Wine

    Are the quote marks around the word hospice his or yours?

    Opera

    I've been there. Me: I went to the Royal Opera House last night. Posh Lady In The Village: Oh, how lovely! What did you hear? Me: The Pet Shop Boys.

    Nature In Your Backyard

    Dog caught a wood mouse outside this week. Shame. I caught a house mouse inside this week. (Well, the trap I set did.) Bit sad but had to be done.

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2020

    Physically frail? Yeah, insists the former box-office beast, after battling various health issues: diabetes, leukemia (remission), a bad heart, a bum shoulder, sepsis. Six months ago, friends called his famed costar Ali MacGraw to warn her: This might be it. It wasn’t it. My guess is the sepsis, because that can be very sudden and very serious. I know two people who have been struck down by sepsis. One is a very fit indomitable chap in his 80s who bounced back. Quick admission to hospital (he passed out in the doctor's surgery) and immediate treatment seems to be the key. The other guy is much younger and has not been so lucky, he's recovered but been debilitated for months.

    The Hartlepool Deadlypool

    This was my doomed effort. 1. Marieke Vervoort 2. Charlotte Rae 3. Trevor Peacock 4. Jean-Louis Trintignant 5. Little Richard 6. Barbara Bush 7. George H.W. Bush 8. Freddie Starr 9. Jet Black 10. Ginger Baker subs Princess Elisabeth of Denmark June Brown (I think in future I should make more effort to pick people who might actually die.)

    The EU Referendum Hokey Cokey

    I imagine he means that Leave voters trusted that it would be competently organised.

    I Miss Badegg

    This place is much less entertaining in his absence.
  13. We can be whatever we want to be nowadays, so they tell me. I might have decided to be one of these transgender individuals.

    (Return Of) The Celebrity Split List

    "They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy."
  15. Speaking as a woman, I hate that sort of attitude. We've already had a woman trying to sort it all out, and that didn't go very well.

    The B B C

    It might be a regional thing. Although years ago I worked for Ladbrokes and the branches were always referred to as shops.

    Internet Celebrities

    I was responding to "everyone needs to know what a evil cunt she is". As for checking out the thread, any thread on here may harbour a hilarious or intriguing story.

    I don't actually need to know anything about any of these nonentities.

    Holiday Thread

    God, no, me either. The original 'Barbados' was far more up my street

    No confusion. I knew what he meant. I just took the opportunity to enquire about a word usage that has long puzzled me.

    Nature In Your Backyard

    When applied to a racehorse trainer, the 'yard' means the entire premises, and by extension the business. For example: " Michael Bell has been training in the historic yard of Fitzroy House, Newmarket for 30 years." https://michaelbellracing.com "We are constantly looking forward and focused on ensuring the future success of the yard." http://www.paulnichollsracing.com

    Nature In Your Backyard

    Strange. The nearest thing to me that is called a "yard" contains a lot of stables with racehorses in them. Is that kind of set-up called a yard in the US of A?

    Death Songs

    Perhaps I've missed something, but I can't see a topic collecting all those gruesome pop songs featuring death. To start the ball rolling, here's murderer R. Dean Taylor on the run in 1970 (and probably not surviving the hail of gunfire at the end).

    That's how I pictured it.
