I am friendly with a bloke who loves the music of John Prine. Lent me a CD once. He's not the sort to be on the internet, retired and I don't have his phone number.  I suspect he won't know about this until the pubs re-open.

Ron Girvin, another or our own. For a long time he was a major figure in the organisation of amature rugby leage in the north west.

Linda Tripp, Monica Lewinsky's "friend" who exposed the affair with Clinton. In deference to the "not speaking ill of the dead" rule, that's all I shall say.

6 minutes ago, RL does what Sky says said:

Although was she ever bothered about not having much sleep while in a bed. 😉

Don't think she's done much more with her youth than the rest of us. She just did it with someone who, if discovered, would result in international notoriety.... and it came to pass.

Had she engaged in the same activity with my mate Dave from Ponty, nobody would have heard of her.

She sounded a well grounded interesting lass when I heard her speak. A likeable soul.

You could always use the time afforded by the lockdown to write to her, giving his contact details.

Strangely I was reading a book about the history of touring car racing yesterday and the foreward was by Murray Walker, a really nice bloke by the way, and I was thinking that he's reached a fair old age, then further into the book it mentioned Stirling Moss and I couldn't recall for definate whether he had passed away. That's that question answered unfortunately.

He came close about 10 years ago, after a three-storey fall down a lift shaft.

This is really sad; part of my childhood with I'm sorry, I'll read that again and The Goodies, then part of the rest of my life with I'm sorry, I haven't a Clue.

One of those famous people for who you feel a genuine sense of loss at their passing. My heart just sank when I just saw this on Twitter.

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!

Was made the scapegoat by the press - not deserved - for the 1970 World Cup England defeat by West Germany when he had to desputise at the last moment for goalkeeper Gordon Banks.
