I've read his books since tbe mid '80s.    Just finished a very recent autobiographical collection of stories about his life.  
Really shocked, I had no idea that it would be so soon and was under the i pression that the drugs he took were keepung the end at bay for many years to come. 

Wherever  you are Sir Pratchett -  thank you for your wonderful books and I hope that you got a personal service from Death, as you said he's a very nice chap really. 


A priest once told me that 'Small Gods' is the best book on religion  he'd ever read.

Blessed age, considering that OAP was "invented" shortly after WW2 for people 65 years of age.
Having worked all their lives, often since childhood, they were allowed to spend the last year of their expected life to sit before the house on a bench in the sun and smoke a pipe for a year - and be happy :-)

Nowadays some, especially those of the type of "civil servant" retire at 50 and live to be a 100 ...

ETA My Maman will be 98 soon and is living on OAP, but she doesn't smoke ;-)

Val Doonican - one of the few people whose shows I could watch with my mother without her blowing a fuse.

I remember the anecdote he told about how, when his two daughters were very young, they knew a song about a girl called Susie (I think) and the things she did. Most of it was tame but there was a line about "leaving her underwear in her boyfriend's car". This caused a bit of surprise at the dinner table and they were asked why they thought she might have done that.

The reply was that perhaps she was changing for her ballet lesson - the innocence of children, bless 'em!

Another anecdote involving my then lack of knowledge about Irish names.

I remember reading an article about how, sadly, Val and his wife's first daughter died aged six months. Her name was Siobhan. I knew that S and I could be pronounced as SH so I thought the name was SHOBBAN.

It wasn't until many years later that I realised it's SHIVORN!

I remember learning "Paddy McGinty's Goat" for a concert at primary school.
And I can still sing it all the way through! Razz

Bless you Val, you keep right on wearing your jumpers and swinging on your rocker with the angels. flower

My first serious interest in music was in the 60s with the Liverpool sound - Cilla, The Beatles, Gerry & the Pacemakers, so many to mention.  Cilla seemed to be part of everyone's home and family as she was on the TV non stop in those days, I loved her records, but unfortunately her speaking voice grated on my nerves.  It got more irritating as the years went by, she seemed a lovely lady though in spite of her terrible (false) Scouse accent.  It was very sad when Bobby died, he was the love of her life and he died way too young.

I've just heard an interview with Barbara Windsor on BBC News, she said she saw Cilla recently and she didn't look very well.  Perhaps poor Cilla knew she didn't have much time left and went to Spain to die in peace away from so many prying eyes.  I've deleted that last sentence as I've just remembered that Barbara Windsor said something about Cilla rehearsing for a new show somewhere, so obviously her death must have been totally unexpected to everyone she knew.

From The Mirror website

"8:09 pm
New information has come in about what happened to Cilla Black

According to a report coming out of Spain, the emergency services were called to Cilla Black’s house around 6pm on Saturday evening but a judge tasked with a routine probe into her death did not authorise the removal of her body until about 1.30am on Sunday morning.

It is not know why there was a delay."
