    The Chequered Flag

    There's been very little practice due to the weather so far. All of today's and yesterday's sessions were cancelled.

    The Chequered Flag

    Expect more updates on this thread over the next couple of weeks, as the Isle Of Man TT races start this evening with the first practice sessions.

    Thoughts and opinions on the death list 2019

    A message-board I occasionally visit has a long running thread that's ideal for dead pooling - it's essentially mentions anyone in a particular field of interest who has major health issues. I've managed to pick up quite a few dead pooling hints from that site over the years, although many of the mentions were of people highly unlikely to receive an obit over here. Last year that thread stuttered to a halt, with no updates for several months. It turns out that the most regular poster to that thread had died suddenly, and no-one else was taking it over.

    I did some work at the financial wing of Reuters some years ago - I wouldn't trust them at all!

    The Guardian aren't running the story either. I suspect that they're both awaiting confirmation from a verified source before running the story.

    And now dead, apparently, via several posts on Twitter.

    Derby Dead Pool 2019

    I’m currently in a pub, and my potential joker pick for next year’s DDP is in here as well. He’s a road racing motorcyclist, with one big win last year. I suspect it’s a farewell drinks do before the NW200 which begins next week.

    Take a look at this awful rubbish, from almost 40 years ago.

    R Dean Taylor

    In the US he was signed to Motown's rock subsidiary label, Rare Earth, and which also had the US rights to some UK acts such as Pretty Things. Due to delays in getting that imprint set up in the UK, his releases here initially appeared on Tamla Motown until these trademark issues could be sorted.

    Thought I'd heard it before - the article is from 2008!

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2020

    Thinking about this a bit more, he's only been absent from the show since sometime in January, and although there's five episodes a week most weeks, they most likely film around that number of episodes a day. He may have only missed a couple of weeks of filming, so it could be nothing more than a bad cold.
