The former England football manager Graham "Do I not like that" Taylor has died.

The parody/spoof film Mike Bassett: England Manager was based on GT's reign.

I watched The Alan Clark Diaries with John Hurt as AC.

Not a bad series.

Some good moments in it (because they were based on real events).

(Alan Clark was a former Conservative MP who died in 1999.)

Terence Harvey who played The Butler in the CD-I Cluedo mysteries died on the 7th of September, 2017.

I hope others are able to update his meagre Wikipedia page.

A horrific accident down my way cost the life of four children, aged 4, 4, 6 and 8. An 11-year-old and the group leader were severely injured.

The group of kids were taken from their daycare centre to school at around 8:30 in a Stint, a type of Segway with a large box in front, designed to transport up to 10 children at cycling pace. Somehow the cart ended on the railroad tracks and was hit by a train.

R.I.P. author Mary Higgins Clark.

From CNN (https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/31/us/mary- ... index.html):
Mary Higgins Clark, the bestselling "Queen of Suspense" who wrote dozens of suspense novels sold worldwide, has died.

Clark's publisher, Simon & Schuster, confirmed her death in a tweet Friday night.

"She passed away peacefully this evening at the age of 92 surrounded by family and friends," the publisher said.

Clark's writing career spanned decades, and included bestselling suspense titles such as "Loves Music, Loves to Dance" and "A Stranger Is Watching."
