    Richard O'Sullivan

    Obviously I would not wish to be accused of "nudging" an individual thread . It's just that I feel that there are two threads that are simply sacred. The Special One (whose name needs to be whispered in awe...oh how I miss her) .....and of course Richard.....

    Checkmate

    Coach of Nigel Short in the past...so surely will get an obit . Ive spent the last week or so researching my favorite sport . I may well finally lose my DDP Theme cherry in 2022.....but Kavalek was well off the radar to be honest...

    Glenda Jackson

    If anyone hasn't yet checked out "Elizabeth is Missing " (available on BBC iPlayer) , this is a wonderful insight into Alzheimers . 2020 BAFTA gong assured for Glenda. Now I know she was acting.....and she is "only" 83....but she gives such a convincing performance that you have to wonder...? Anyway...a few players pick her every year.....and it may well be worth keeping an eye out when she collects the gong on Feb 2nd ?

    Im not saying he wasn't an awesome star....but did he not fall on hard times? Does anyone think he has millions stashed away in bank accounts?

    Sobriety thread

    well...Im still drinking a lot. Slightly more important to me than posting here in fact.I take delivery of alcohol at least three times a week. Yesterday a mixed beer case from a local Brewery that delivers. However , somewhat surprisingly I have noticed that buying from Scotland is the way forward. Three days ago gin and beer from the Isle of Skye...and I have a 57% bottle coming from the Orkneys later this week . I have 10 bottles of wine and ten food items as part of a deal from Northern Italy also later this week . I need to watch out for that one for obvious reasons. ALL these are free delivery. I spend HOURS trying to find places that offer free delivery....its great fun !

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    Not sure all healthy fairly fit non smoking people who are catching this need ventilators though ? For them its just a bad case of man-flu..... We need to protect the ones who REALLY need help to breath .

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    I agree. Easy for you to say though "Grim up North" . I find it not so grim here up North currently....few infections , and fingers crossed there will be minimal deaths in Yorkshire(where I am) . Its pretty grim though for Londoners....

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    of course we still get it...but UK society has "flattened the curve" . So instead of 20000 deaths in UK...we might only get say 18000....cos there are a few more ICU beds and ventilators available for those of us that catch it in say late April. When EVERYONE gets it at the same time....its bad news.

    Cricket Thread. Only Mad Dogs And Englishmen

    Amongst Eileen's many and varied achievements was passing her driving test at 105 . She may be slightly older than most of us...but not much chance of her demise in the near future (assuming she washes her hands on a regular basis )
