No, it's after the next one goes things may get interesting, they actually start getting younger and more quarrelsome.

The BBC News page today had these headlines to click onto ....
Read
1: Greece Syriza election win - reaction
2: Greek singer Demis Roussos dies aged 68
Personally, I think that's an over-reaction.
Not advocating mass-murder as an entirely positive experience, of course, but it had its moments.

From down under:
Vale
Colleen McCullough - author.
and
Kel Nagle - golfer.

I have not as yet read any of McCullough's works but she was lauded as the Queen of the Quill by those who have.

Kel Nagle was a legend in his lifetime, even when he was playing. As a teenager I kept a scrap book of newspaper clippings relating to Kel and to Peter Thompson as I admired both of them greatly.

All in all a sad day. :(

Farewell Miss Marple (Geraldine McEwan) - wonder if it was natural causes? - guess we'll never know now. RIP.
