I agree ST, what people forget Jim bowen was a good comedian before bullseye. and i think hes the last one that was living from the old itv series the comedians?

Also apart from his revolutionary theories, Steven Hawkins was also very funny too.

In a strange way, today has been a happy reminder of what a diverse and varied culture we have and we should never take that for granted.

Jim Bowen was no genius and Stephen Hawking no game show host. But I was very sad to hear about both of them. They both contributed to our World in thier own ways.

Professor Steven Hawking - R.I.P. Genius.

Jim Bowen - R.I.P. - Stay out of the black and into the red, nothing in this game for 2 in a bed. Who doesn't mind a bit of Bully.

R,I.P. to both.

Charles Lazarus, founder of the Toys R Us stores, has died, along with the brand he created it would sadly seem.

If his surname is anything to go by we may not have seen the last of him!

He lived in Sapcote so was a common figure around Hinckley and Leicester.
My 1st house was in Burbage and Bill was a common site in our village.
Had a few pints with him on a few dinner times in the Anchor and cross keys.
Think is daughter lived in Burbage.

Not a personality - but our Chocolate Lab passed away yesterday- the day before her 14th birthday.

Very much part of the family and sadly missed.

Very sorry to hear about your dog, however never having been a dog owner, it took me a moment or two to figure out what a Chocolate Lab was. :oops:
