A talented performer who spent her retirement helping animals in distress, rather than being just another media tart "celebrity"!

From the sublime to the ridiculous...

Nikki Lauda, almost certainly the best driver of his time. I have to confess that, like many Brit fans in 1976, we were so desperate for James Hunt to win the World Championship that we tended to underplay Lauda's heroism in returning to the cockpit so soon after his horrific German GP crash. But absolutely no-one was upset or surprised when he became World Champion the following year.

When finding out that he was never recorded as starting the German Grand Prix in which he crashed - only the restart after the crash was recorded in the official statistics - he promptly asked that in that case what had happened to his ear.....

And the ridiculous?  Tardar Sauce, age 7, the internet phenomenon known as Grumpy Cat. Got a mention on the BBC and across the National Press, something not many cats can claim!

Welcome to the forum, PeterEm.  Smiley

Nikki Lauda...Great shame.....(Matt) Judith Kerr....Sadly....Don't remember her, at all....'Grumpy cat'...That wasn't very old for a cat....But I've seen his (?) image on numerous occasions.

The dog is a peasant. The cat is a gentleman.

I remember Judith Kerr's "Mog the Forgetful Cat" series and also "The Tiger Who Came To Tea" with great affection from my days of doing bedtime stories for the kids.

Lost far too many....But the dogs we've lost have hurt a lot more.

When I read the “Tiger who came to tea” to my daughter it always seemed a bit... sinister? The Tiger ransacks the house looking for food and I was never certain it wasn’t going to eat the mother and daughter left in the house.

It was only a few years ago that I discovered Judith Kerr was brought up in the Netherlands in WW2. The Tiger represents the Gestapo! Now I find it a really clever but sinister read.

She always maintained that the tiger was just a tiger.

For music fans of 60s pyschedelia just found out Roky Erickson has passed on Sad The 13th Floor Elevators were class and some of his solo stuff was mighty impressive as well.

Blake's 7 was a great series that I loved to watch. A sad loss but a great legacy.
