    For sure. The racing community is tight-knit and news would get out, even if there's no funeral.

    Ah, OK - as I guessed, it wasn't on public roads.

    A link to your source would be good, since that's an old picture. Similar to a photo in this article from January.

    Yeah, it might not be "announced" but it certainly won't go unmentioned.
  5. You really couldn't make this up. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-wiltshire-47952295 'A senior judge has revealed he was excused from jury service, because he was due to preside over the case in question. Keith Cutler, the resident judge of Winchester and Salisbury, said he was surprised when he got the call up. But his reason for not doing his duty was initially rejected when he contacted the Jury Central Summoning Bureau directly to explain. ................... He told a jury: "I was selected for jury service here at Salisbury Crown Court for a trial starting 23 April. "I told the Jury Central Summoning Bureau that I thought I would be inappropriate seeing I happened to be the judge and knew all the papers. "They wrote back to me, they picked up on the fact I was the judge but said 'your appeal for refusal has been rejected but you could apply to the resident judge' but I told them "I am the resident judge".

    Elton John

    I don't know, but it has just struck me that if Elton was still married to a woman it would be "Sir Elton and Lady John", but as a bloke David is still just Mr Furnish. And husbands of Dames get the same treatment - no honorific title for them. They should all start a #metoo protest.

    Read Any Good Books Lately?

    Speaking of which, 'Bodies' is available on BBC iplayer, both series. If you've never seen it, it's a drama from about 15 years ago, written by Jed Mercurio (Line Of Duty, Bodyguard). He used to be a doctor, so .... Not for the faint-hearted.

    Oh, I dunno, I quite like that.

    That must be the Aaron Ramsey hit, no?

    The EU Referendum Hokey Cokey

    It's never struck me until now, but "Brexit" sounds just like a fart. The above version being one of those lingering drawn-out ones.

    Journalists

    A nice article about Bill Heine and the Headington Shark https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2019/apr/07/it-went-in-beautifully-as-the-postman-was-passing-the-story-of-the-headington-shark-bill-heine

    Journalists

    Very sad to read that, I enjoy Sarah's reviews and she is always willing to engage with readers. She seems like a lovely genuine person. Had no idea she'd had two stillborn babies in two years - how dreadful.

    Death Anniversary Thread

    Always sad to see someone trying so hard to be "edgy".

    Bill is a hit for me, but I am very sad about it.

    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    Bill Heine could go in various topics, eg, Journalists or Presenters. He doesn't belong in this one.

    Come back Guy Fawkes, and have another go.

    Of course! That accounts for it being a slow year so far .... Expect a deluge of death from late May onward

    The 4th Crowdsource Deathlist (2019 edition)

    The wrong people are dying. Mark Hollis. Keith Flint. Ranking Roger.

    Ask A Deathlister

    That I doubt. He was a very persistent bidder and the selling price was well over £200. Selling those items individually would be unlikely to recoup the cost. There's something there that he desperately wanted.

    Ask A Deathlister

    1. Only if the deal was done off ebay, which I wouldn't propose anyway. I would want to do it through ebay for my own protection. 2. Yeah, I'm hoping he only wanted one of the pieces and not the one I want! That's what I would have done with the rest if I'd won.
  21. " The catfish has been "relocated" to a fully enclosed lake with help from the Catfish Conservation Group." Think that's like "gone to live on a farm"?

    Ask A Deathlister

    I thought of doing that, but judging by the reactions to my innocent question (eg " Even attempting to do this could get you suspended") I'm not sure if I could trust the seller not to be a similar arsewipe. I'd better leave it. I might find one yet for less money. It's the kind of thing that might be found on a junk stall for 20p because people wouldn't know it was collectable and rare.
