  1. I've also learnt more about him from a programme I've been watching today. I knew a little about his childhood from something I'd previously read, and there was a programme on a few weeks ago about his mother Princess Alice I found interesting. She was born deaf and learnt to lip read in a few languages, but she suffered with a mental illness in adult life, and Philip as a child was separated from her for a few years and sent to live with various relatives when she was forcibly admitted to a sanatorium. Later in life she became a nun, but before then during the Nazi period, she had risked arrest by hiding some Jewish people in her home. In Israel she is among those on 'The Righteous Amongst the Nations' list of honours.
  2. RIP Prince Philip. Sad news, but not a great shock knowing how ill he was. GIad to hear there are tribute programmes on TV paying him respect.
  3. I've always liked most of Elton John's music. This is my favourite.
  4. Yes I'll be watching it, and judging by the publicity its been receiving, so will a lot of other people.
  5. Laurel & Hardy dancing Despacito.
  6. Belated Birthday Greetings Cressida. Many Happy Returns. Glad you enjoyed the day. 🌹
  7. Sounds even better with beautiful images.
  8. Sharing the nice tributes. Such a lovely man, humble and generous but with so much to be proud of. RIP Sir Tom.
  9. I wonder why my reply double posted? tried to correct. Hoping a Mod will fix it if possible.
  10. Eric Burden was a good singer. I also like the sound of Alan Price playing the organ music, I think that too probably contributed to the song's appeal and influence.
  11. Heard today that Hilton Valentine from the Animals has died RIP. He was the one who composed House of the Rising Sun and played the famous guitar riff. The song which was a great success at the time of release, here and in the USA, is now regarded as a great classic.
  12. No need to apologise to me, I didn't care for her much either before I watched the programme.
  13. It was Pattricia I've got nothing but praise for Katie Price after seeing it. The close relationship she and Harvey share is clearly genuine. She's clearly a strong and caring mother, and the programme helped draw attention to the similar problems other parents are experiencing in that situation which hopefully will do some good.
  14. Finally, on the subject of the Inauguration I'd just like to mention Amanda Gorman the poet who delivered this uplifting contribution. https://www-bbc-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.bbc.com/news/amp/entertainment-arts-55738564?amp_js_v=a6&amp_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQHKAFQArABIA%3D%3D#aoh=16112312115722&referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bbc.com%2Fnews%2Fentertainment-arts-55738564 When I heard it I thought it was really moving, so much so that I decided iI wanted hear it again and save it.
