I didn't realise the members of Bogart Co. were that old! Or was he older than the rest of them? Sad news anyway - my sister had a Finnish penpal and I remember them sending a couple of tapes, amongst them Bogart Co., which was probably the best out of them.

A legend and probably if not the first, one of the first Finnish competitive bodybuilders. Started it during the 1950s, top bodybuilder in Sweden, Finland and Norway since 1960 until the 1980s. He won 46 titles during his career including Mr. Europe twice and knew Arnold Schwarzenegger after being his roommate in the 70s. 

Was in great health until his death as when he retired from bodybuilding around 1987 he started working as a physiotherapist.

Most of his giant medal collection will be on display in a museum according to his iltalehti obituary.

Has "periods of awakeness during the day" and tries to communicate through signs.

Out of ICU after being there for nearly three months.

It was also announced that Fernández will continue to use a breathing aid device. “Don Vicente remains stable. He is more alert and cooperative in his rehabilitation therapy. His breathing remains weak which is why he need the intermittent use of breathing aids.”

Italian actor and model Rossano Rubicondi has died age 49. He is also the fourth husband of Ivana  Trump. The tweet is apparently incorrect in saying ex husband because their divorce wasn't finalised according to other media reports.

Hmm... Trump's eskimo brother then. Isn't that kind of family/fringe, too?

Edit: Ah yes, it's posted there, too.

Have you muted poor Arghton?

No, but some people (no names, no pack-drill) don't mention the name of the deceased in their posts, thus, the search function doesn't find it. 

 

This has been mentioned previously (or :clivedunn:, if you like)
