Good guess, he was only 72


Really? It seems he should be older...but Ringo is about the same age.

No wonder she was a country & western singer,her life sounds like a bad soap opera.Jeez man,drama all over da place! Gotta feel for the 7 yr old.That's gotta be tough on the kid.The 9-month old shouldn't remember much of anything.A blessing in a way. :cry:

PJ sounds upset over da pope abdicating his throne.Is he afraid he'll be just plain Jim again? Not that there's anything wrong with that,just ask ol' just plain.......ah,um,what's his name,eh? (rythmes with bug,slug,plug,hug,lug,fug,nug,pug,and ugh,but not poodle,also sounds like the past-tense of dig) :mrgreen:

I worked with her in 2000 at Churchill Downs. Chatted with her briefly. She was polite, cordial, and nervous. She sang the national anthem.

Otfried Preußler (or Preussler, if u prefer), german writer of books for children. His best-known works are The Robber Hotzenplotz and The Satanic Mill (Krabat). Grew up with Robber Hotzenplotz and didn't even know, that Preussler was still alive until i heard about his dead. Hotzenplotz is a real bad guy, he stole the coffee grinder from the grandmother.

Sunday, February 24th. Blown away by coevad in a homicidal fit of petulant frenzy. One whole day of immortal bullshit flushed down the cosmic crapper. Are you proud of yourself, Dave?

That's the final resting place for bullshit anyway, eh Mr. Wilson? I'm sure that tank will never run dry, though.

Dan Toler is dead.

Dan Toler, a southern rock guitar great who was part of the Allman Brothers Band family, has died near his hometown of Sarasota, Fla. He was 65.
A note on his official Facebook page reads, “It is with great regret and sadness that our dear friend and loved one, Dan Toler, passed away peacefully in his sleep last night. Future service to be announced. Please keep Debbie and the family in your prayers. We would also ask at this time that you would respect the family’s privacy. The Toler family thanks you for all your love and support.” Many fans have taken to his Facebook page and Twitter to express their condolences.

In 2011, Toler was diagnosed amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as “Lou Gehrig’s disease.” Since then, many benefits were held to help pay for his medical bills and to raise awareness of the disease, which affects the central nervous system and makes it difficult for the muscles to receive messages from the brain.
