At the Gold Coast Hospital.  Long term illness.  Poor girl.  Way too young.

Bred to be a Champion...

Grant Kenny x Lisa Curry

Both GI winners.

What happened?


Anorexia, seemingly. Heartbreaking business. A psychological disorder. Though I recall an aunt of mine, who was stick thin all her life, dying at 84, and I was shocked when the death certificate gave the cause of death as "Anorexia". I had seen her not that long before she died, at home, and she seemed no thinner than she had always been.

My cousins daughter's went through this. Countless therapies, and countless relapses.

Sad.

One of the founders of Australian rock band Skyhooks, guitarist Peter Starkie, has died aged 72.

His brother Bob Starkie, also a member of the band, said Mr Starkie died "in one of those stupid ladder accidents".

Men over 60 should not get on ladders - the stats are shocking. Now interestingly, it's always older men who are having ladders injuries/deaths. I've never heard of it happening to a woman. Is that because senior women have better balance, or are more careful, or are smart enough to get a man to do it?Wink

Very sad, and indeed true. 

Talking about performers, I remember that Col Joye had a serious fall from a ladder some years ago.  But did recover, to a degree of disappointment from most in the entertainment industry of his time.

Indeed.  Though Molly's recovery was far better received.

I reckon its because most women dont "do" ladders.  They just leave it to the macho men to climb them, and then fall off.  LOL 
Yeah, what did Col do ???

Bush fires are not good in OZ or US...

Supreme Justices would rather be at the opera!

Ginsburg explained why she had fallen asleep during the State of the Union address just a few weeks before. She had vowed not to have wine with dinner that night: "Just sparkling water, stay away from the wine. But in the end, the dinner was so delicious it needed wine to accompany it."

Scalia quipped, "That's the first intelligent thing you've done."

Among other things, the two bonded over their love of opera.

I'd rather Supreme Justices were at the Opera rather than fighting fires as well.
