Homero Gomez Gonzalez, 50, you may not know the name, but appears to have died in very suspicious circumstances.

If any of you have ever seen the films where the mass migrations of millions of Monarch butterflies gather in Mexican forests to winter, you will understand his significance.

Kirk Douglas, at 103 good innings and a legendary super actor - oh and he was Michael's Dad, condolences to the Douglas Family.

Cheers to you for all those super films you were in Mr D.

Kirk Douglas' demise gives me a good excuse to find the DVD of "The Final Countdown" and enjoy the dog fight between the Zeros and the VF-84 Tomcats.

Saw them a number of times during the years and always good live...the first album "Entertainment" still gets played on a regular basis and the 2011 album "Content" was a good 'un,the last one with original vocalist Jon King.

So sad to hear the news about Caroline Flack, another Young life taken from us - R.I.P. Caroline Flack. Wasn't a fan of Love Island but remember her on Childrens TV and Strictly - which she won of course.

I enjoyed her interviews on This Morning, Jonathan Ross and Xtra Factor (when I used to watch it) never watched Love Island.

Didn't really know who she was, never watched anything that she was in, nevertheless, as you say, very sad to hear of her loss. I believe that she took her own life, which perhaps is particularly tragic?
