    Happy new year all.

    So far so good - sitting with a coffee watching Bridge on the River Kwai.

    I don't think 2016 was any worse than other years to be honest .

    Was discussing that with Lisa while out on the dog walk. As an example, one of the 80s groups on Facebook that I follow has created and maintained a collage of all celebrities lost during 2016.

    The picture makes it looks like so many, yet really, is it any different than last year or the years before?

    Same for family and friend tragedies, politics and world health/war/natural disasters.

    I'm not sure so I'm on the fence about 2016 being good/bad/indifferent but I definitely wish you all the best for 2017 and whatever it might bring!

    Worldwide more than 150 'celebs' shed their mortal coil..
    I don't recall another year, in the last 50, that so many popped off. Especially household names..
    Expecting things to get worse, though, not better.

    As many have said, it's the start of the end. Many people who became famous at the dawn of the television revolution in the 60s are now reaching that age
