I've become asthmatic which isn't great for making bangers at about 3 degrees C. And for standing at market in the chilly willy sparrow fart hours. Too many Senior Service coming back to bite me on the rear.
In the South of France and fancy a banger?

RIP Nelson Mandela.


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

RIP Nelson Mandela.

 

Given its own thread, and rightly so.

Futtocks seems to know a lot about when people pass away...

 

Are you the Grim Reaper?

 

:unsure:

 

 



I have the radio on at work - normally the World Service or Radio 5 - so these things get announced pretty promptly as breaking news. And I'm the grim reaper.

Sad sad news. 

 

Joan Fontaine has passed away too.

Apparently Peter O'Toole had two birth certificates.

 

One suggested he was born in Connemara in Ireland; the other that he had been born in Leeds on a later date.

 

Both birth certificates were completely legal documents, and he could have legitimately used either.

He may well have been born in Ireland, and had his birth registered in Leeds to prevent any repercussions with regards to the Irish Free State movement.

Joan Fontaine. As was going to mention to my manager about Peter O'Toole and there are not many left from the "golden age" of films I was going to mention that Olivia de Havilland and Joan Fontaine (sisters too) were still going. Alas only Olivia now..... 95 Fontaine was great age.

Good riddance.

Inappropriate IMO. He wasn't a tyrant or mass murderer, just a small time crook who did a runner from jail. Whilst I don't agree with glorifying criminals or making them out to be loveable rogues, I don't think it is worthy of such comment. I bet if it was bedlam breakout making such remarks over someone you respected you would be up in arms, so if you can't say anything nice on an obituary thread, don't.

 

nb I am not a RB fan or anything like that.


No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand
