    Jerry Lewis. Aged 91.

    Think I am like a lot of people, liked him when I was a kid, but found him incredibly annoying and unfunny in adulthood.

    The French absolutely loved him though didn't they.

    I saw an obituary in the local newspaper a while ago. It said something like "Theodore Smith has died age 72, will anyone who knew him or anything about him please contact the newspaper". I thought that was very sad, no-one could be found to write his eulogy.

    I would how long Mel Brooks has left. He's now 91.

    Hope I'm not tempting fate.

    Can't stand C & W music, but I didn't mind Don Williams. I never knew he'd passed away though.

    Weird to think there's people on here we talk to every day for years and then one day we'll just disappear and nobody will know whats happened.

    Don't worry. You will know when I have gone. You will be lying in your bed unable to sleep because I shall be singing 'Go for it, go for it City' in hushed tones all night

    Whatever happened to the suggestion of a 'meet up' that somebody made a couple of years ago? Or was it made in jest?

    I wonder who would be most unlike their online persona in real life?

    I'm sure we all have a picture in our minds of each poster's appearance.

    Like, I'm sure some people on here picture me as this......

    Timmy-Mallett.jpg

    When in reality some have told that I look a bit like this.....

    Think of the Wealdstone raider and he's pretty much my doppelganger, by look and nature.

    That's not much good then with all the heart attacks you keep having.

    Maybe a bit of Stairway to Heaven would prevent you getting there so quickly.

    I do wonder at times Otis with your wide ranging and numerous views whether you have taken on the persona of your avatars, Alf Garnett?
