Chef Anthony Bourdain found dead aged 61

Oh no ! I will surely starve.

That's not old. I wonder why.
Hanging, mostly.   :'(

Indeed.

Kate Spade a couple of days before him, by similar causes (Lizzie will no doubt know who she was)

Danny Kirwin, today, former guitarist of Fleetwood Mac.

Kate Spade was completely unknown to me, but Danny Kirwan certainly was. Saw him play once. I often wondered what happened to him after Fleetwood Mac. . . . Oh Well

Leslie Grantham at 71. Not somebody with his colourful history, including murdering a taxi driver in Germany, that I liked. But RIP anyway.

I suppose they'll always at least run the risk of suffering such tragedies whilst they[and others]as a family continue in road racing.They all know the risks[wives included]involved especially in road racing[as opposed to short circuit track racing-although of course that isn't risk free either]and sadly that risk takes a life.As a family the Dunlops are more likely to suffer due to sheer numbers of them involved.But at least they went doing what they loved to do which I don't think can be a bad thing.

William Dunlops partner has posted a tribute and a thankyou to his fans on his website. Be warned, it will bring a tear to the driest eye.

Old school retirement...

I will be retiring at at least 67... With the current odds, I won't need a pension :-X

Putin has just changed the Russian state retirement age to 65. Apparently(from memory) 69% of their men die before 65. I met up with a friend in England. He is 68 and his aim is to make 85. He isn't a smoker and gave up drinking yonks ago. Sobering target.
