Hagemeister's death is a surprise, the guy was quite active and seemed to be very healthy.

 

Since this is probably the only place I can talk about MOH and Victoria Cross recipients I can give you quite a few updates on them which I have wanted to do for a while.

 

For WW2 and Korea Woody Williams is as active as ever and is no way going to die any time soon, Hiroshi Miyamura seems to be doing okay, no updates on Duane Dewey and Bob Simanek for a long time now. Won't be surprised at all if Woody manages to outlive the Korean War recipients entirely.

 

For the Vietnam MOH recipients. Gary Wetzel has been wheelchair bound since a motorcycle accident, Gary Beikirch has pancreatic cancer, Roger Donlon has Parkinson's disease, Kenneth Stumpf is quite frail and appears to wheelchair bound as well. There have also been no updates on quite a few of them (especially Herda and Lemon). On the other hand a good majority of them are very healthy and active and are not going to die anytime soon.

 

For Victoria Cross recipients. Cannot find any updates on Cruickshank since his 100th birthday. Limbu and Payne are quite healthy from recent updates.

Limbu in 2020?

Payne in 2020. Payne looks healthier, but Limbu can still talk well and for hours.

Here's Cruickshank, I'm not sure if the picture is from 2020 (probably not) but this was on RAF's facebook on a post about his 100th birthday.

Nice pictures of the VC recipients.  Here is the most recent picture of WW2's last surviving MOH recipient, Woody Williams.

So, are him and Lisa Shaw just the warm up act for Bashir's ticker giving up the ghost - I have a hunch the former blagger in chief of BBC hacks is currently under a little stress!

I was surprised to find that I hadn't ever picked him for the "....good night from him" DDP team; he fitted all of the qualifying criteria for selection - named Ron & alive. Ah well. c'est la vie/mort.

Oh dear... well, of course, every single vaccine death will be mentioned in the press. You don't read about the millions, and soon to be billions that are fine.

Still, you can't help everyone. It's a shitty situation, but what can you do.. people also die in traffic, and we still have cars.

The vaccine deaths really seem to be picking up the steam . William Shakespeare, (first man to take it) Lisa Shaw ( no doubt the character assassination of her family is incoming) and Tony Lyman dies of a 'short illness' same thing that was reported about Lisa Shaw when her death was first announced.

 

Anyway if the vaccines weren't safe we'd hear about people dying from it after they've taken it and the Hospitals would be filling up with vaccine injured people. :sherlock:

50% of emergancy room visits are vaccine related so say some random person on twitter. 

 

Sadly its an inevitablity that the vaccines are going to kill some people but lets not push misinformation like this please.

Thoughtful of Lisa Shaw, mind, gifting a scoop to her colleagues the second she pegged out!

Lorina Kamburova, Bulgarian actress has died aged 30 from pneumonia. Didn't get far in her career but some more famous movie appearances include Leatherface (2017) where she is crushed to death by a large engine block, Day of the Dead: Bloodline where she is bitten to death, Nightworld (2017) where she is stabbed and later shot and Doom: Annihilation (2019).

Alastair Hanton, the man who essentially invented the British system of Direct Debit, dead at 94

 

 

Thus killing the standing order and taking away control from the customer.  

I am sick of big companies announcing to me that they are going to increase my payments without consulting me first.

Now that most people use online banking, it would be easy to adjust the amount of a standing order.
