I couldn’t believe how devastated I was when I learned that she wasn’t really married to (that twat) Terry.

RIP.

I’ve just seen that Ray Sawyer of Dr Hook has died.

It was on the cover of the Rolling Stone.

Dean Ford, lead singer with Marmalade has passed away aged 72. Marmalade were the first band i ever saw live, in 1967 at Margate Dreamland Ballroom. They were a great live act in the sixties with a big reputation, Hendrix in particular rated them very highly, they toured with him. I saw them a couple more times before they became the first Scottish band to have a No 1 single with their poppy cover of the Beatles song Ob La Di Ob La Da. which in no way reflected just what a good band they were. Sadly they were never the same after that. Reflections Of My Life is probably their greatest legacy, written by Dean.RIP.

Fwiw, when I saw this headline I thought “that’s a pity. We don’t have many dwarf actors.”

Hugh McIlvanney, legendary sports journo, has popped it.


#1153

Everyone probably owes this man a debt of gratitude (some on here more than others…).

Not everyone can make such a positive mark on the world in their lifetime.

True Dat.

Think it was a Quack on Sky News back in the run up to NYE in Dec 1999 who explained what a hangover was and how Brufen was the cure.

(Basically Alcohol is a diuretic, that causes the liquid barrier between your brain and skull to decline, alcohol then causes the brain to swell so it starts hitting your skull. Hence anti-inflamatory stops that happening).
Now where did I pack them?

My Liver does however hate Dr Adams

Unfortunately, due to duodenal ulcers when I was younger, I am not allowed to take anti-inflammatory.


#1156

Caused by anti-inflammatories?


#1157

Caused by bosses like you and @CB-Saint


#1158

Ulcers caused by stress are an urban myth. They’re either caused by bacteria or anti-inflammatory drugs. I’ve told HR any other reason is malingering.

Both easily fixed so get back to work.
