First they were spewing guff about David Bowie. Then they were vomiting platitudes about George Michael. Now they're rabbiting on and on about Richard Adams.

Debbie Reynolds RIP - seems her daughter's death was one worry about her too much to bear, so sad when a child goes before a parent. It is not the way it's meant to be.

Watched her on Christmas Day I think it was in Singing in the Rain dancing that brilliant number "Good Morning" with Gene Kelly and Donald O'Connor, and was telling my son and daughter how she was saying in a documentary I watched some time ago that the director made them do it over and over again, so much that her feet started to bleed.

Fabulous - enjoy.....................

He reached a good age, but still sad to hear about Richard Adams dying. Watership Down is not only brilliant but just about the most harrowing thing I've ever read. But in a good way.
