    Olivia Newton-John

    Happy 71st Birthday, Lovely Livvy! I couldn't find any news about her actual health, which wasn't posted here last month. It seems she's still fine: "I'm doing really well and I'm really healthy. It was a challenging year because I broke my sacrum and I had to learn to walk again and everything. But I am strong and I am back and I'm feeling good and loving every minute." https://www.hellomagazine.com/celebrities/2019090977482/olivia-newton-john-suprise-evening-oprah-gayle-king/

    27. Stirling Moss

    Let's wait and see, first of all he's getting 90 today! This article says, that Moss was not well enough to be present for the 90th birthday celebration at last weekend’s Goodwood Revival : https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/motor-racing/formula1/f1-lewis-hamilton-sir-stirling-moss-90-enzo-ferrari-juan-manuel-fangio-a9107131.html
  17. German designer Luigi Colani has died at age 91. https://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2019/09/16/world/europe/ap-eu-germany-obit-colani.html My father was an architecture and design student in the 1970s, and he had contact with Colani during that time. As a student, he had no money but a pregnant girlfriend, and so Colani gave my father a stroller designed by him. The stroller must have looked like that, but the frame was red and the folding roof orange, I think. Unfortunately, I have no access to my personal children's photos.

    September 11th

    On 11.09.2001 I was shopping in Cologne with my best friend. We were in a CD department when suddenly a lot of people were staring at the monitors, on which a skyscraper - not immediately recognizable for us - was burning. We could not associate the event at all, went later to a cafe where we learned everything. When I got home, my partner was cooking for us and had not heard of anything. Then we sat in front of the TV for 2 or 3 days and skipped our classes in the university.
