It was over a month back, but another great literary talent left us in July.

I really enjoyed his work.
Billy Bathgate was my favorite, I think. Kind of a modern rework of Melville's Billy Budd.
Ragtime was also terrific, and the film based on that work is on my top 20 list.

I note today's news article:
Fans have long suspected that Forsyth, 77, acclaimed for his highly realistic spy novels, may have been involved with British Intelligence.

He told the BBC it started when he was asked to send information from the Biafran War in Nigeria.

He said he was approached by an intelligence officer who asked him to "tell us what's going on" during the civil war, which lasted from 1967 to 1970.

UK X Factor starts again !

Aug 30, 2015 - 5:42 AM - by G#Gill
G#Gill's Avatar
Well yet another series starts and the judges have changed.........................................
Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, radio 1's Nick Grimshaw (don't know him !) replaces Louis Walsh (I quite liked him !), Rita Ora replaces Mel B (ex Spice Girl). We'll see how they get on.

So far there have been one or two absolutely naff singers (mostly tone deaf !), but a few promising young singers. I feel there is hope for the program if the standard is kept... [Read More]

It's Bank Holiday time again innit !

G#Gill's Avatar
As usual (well almost) the Bank Holiday Monday n the UK is imminent, so the weather, true to form, is expected to be cooler and damper. All those poor sods caught in holiday traffic snarl-ups will have to probably suffer rain while they queue, then cooler temps on the beaches when they arrive, hours later than intended. Then have to struggle in more traffic snarl-ups on their return home. Deep joy ! There is no way that I will ever venture out on a holiday or a day trip on a Bank... [Read More]

Does anyone recognize this white symbol? It's the only distinguishing feature I could find. I am on a hunt for an exact replacement to a missing ball in a set. Forever indebted to anyone who has a clue. The ball measures about 4.25" diameter.

People at church excluding and avoiding me on church trip

Aug 24, 2015 - 4:46 PM - by jashley
I am so upset, I went on this church trip and it seemed like the whole time I was there people were trying to avoid me and exclude me. They moved when I would sit next to them or they would choose other spots over the one next to me. They also took pictures and tried to move their heads to block me out of the picture and when I saw a picture on FB of a group of people sitting eating lunch and I had been cut off except for my hand. Like they cut me out of the picture. Also I was in a room one... [Read More]

Hi

I don't typically post these kinds of things on forums but I am in desperate need of help. I am even considering seeing a shrink for advice because I am having such a difficult time with a friend of mine.

I have been friends with this girl for about 11 years now so we were VERY close friends. She considers me one of her best friends. Over the recent years we have slowly come a part because my husband and I don't mesh at all with her future husband hes just not a... [Read More]
