Ooh how weird - I put him on a shortlist today & was going to put him on my DDP team, then decided at the last minute that he was healthy enough (or was in an interview 6 months ago in the Luton News) and put another English ex-manager in instead.

 

Shows how much I know about deciding who's healthy or not! :lol:

I very nearly did die suddenly this weekend after getting caught out in freezing weather on a Welsh mountain top. Anywhere but Wales.

 

And whats wrong with Wales? Where were you, Snowdon?

The actor & comedian Anton Rodgers has died, aged 74. Bit of a surprise, this one!

 

Rodgers starred in May to December & Fresh Fields, but had a long & successful stage career & popped up in numerous films, including Scrooge and a wonderful turn in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, which I watched on DVD only last week.

 

Most recently, he was seen in Longford as Willie Whitelaw. Obit here. :lol:

 

Oh Blimey! He reached December 31st then.....

There's a commercial for the Jarvik artificial heart? Or are you talking about the commercial Jarvik does for SPAM?

Drag-racing legend Art Arfons has died and was a unique pick of 2 Farts and a Splash on the CPDP.

 

Sad news, I think he was the chap who took an engine out of a jet aeroplane and built a car around it, or something like that.

 

Outlived by his brother Walt Afons- who at 90 is ten years older - he too pioneered jet powered cars. I'd say it's pretty remarkable they both reached old age, considering what they were pioneering.

That's interesting. That was originally the name of a well known highly prescribed statin drug for cholesterol.

He bought the engine in a scrap yard and fixed it himself, he also survived what has to be the fastest ever car crash at over 600 MPH!

Sheer luck, if the car had rolled once more he was dead. It would have made Richard Hammond's crash look a bit tame!

Thanks for sharing this with the group. I guess that's the kind of relationship where you never have to say sorry.

When they're in a coma, you don't have the awkward moment where you say "did the earth move for you"

Was it a photo of her in a coma that you were looking at?

Mexican trumpeter Jose Luis Aquino has been found murdered.

He is believed to be the 3rd Mexican musician to be killed within the space of a week.

 

Why they couldn't do something productive and kill of Pete Doherty and Amy Winehouse is beyond me
