    20 /20

    Yes, no problem. Duplicate picks are not allowed in this little game, e.g. Jackie Stallone and Prince Philip are both in my team this round. And I guess that Vera Lynn is born in 1917, not 1920.

    Yes, but he left us all alone and didn't show up for ages. So we took over! And yeah, I only will take part up to the end of the year. But maybe other players will stay - so welcome @Yvonne

    Hopefully not. Personally I don't need new ABBA-songs. And I don't want them to disassemble themselves and their iconic status to be scratched.

    Marianne Faithfull

    Oh no, not my Marianne! But of course, with all her health problems, she is a risk patient! I keep my fingers crossed that she gets through.
  9. Unfortunately that's often the case with the international press and the obituaries for the Germans...especially for the so called qualifying obituaries which are accepted for many death pools.
