Lot of things from the 70s should be piled in a heap & burnt - like the brown laminex rubbish that is my kitchen! And the orange and brown floral wallpaper, most of which I have peeled off the walls - you can cover a multitude of sins with a kitchen dresser!

Most definitely! My real estate agent, when giving a valuation, said "If it's workable, don't replace the kitchen, because whoever buys the house (it's not for sale![yet!]) will rip it out & put their own in." Which is sound advice, I think. I can live with the kitchen as is for now - I just don't 'look' at it when I'm in it!
Brown laminex and orange and brown wall paper - not to mention Mission Brown on the outside woodwork - to the bonfire with them!!

I 'worked' with Fenella Fielding in the late 90's.

The new 'Film 4' channel had just started on Sky/Cable and they were doing a season of 'Vampire' related movies.
They asked Jake West (director of 'Razor Blade Smile', 'Doghouse', etc.) to film a number of introductory shorts.
Being part of the 'Vampyre Society/London Vampyre Group' I was asked by Jake to be one of those interviewed on film for these shorts.

I spent a day at the old St Pancras Chambers (Kings Cross Station) with other vampire fans, authors as well as Ingrid Pitt and Fenella. At the time the buiding was closed to the public awaiting a redevelopment that never happened. It's a hotel now.

During the long breaks between shots Fenella and Ingrid cornered me to discuss life, the universe and the problems with water retention. They regaled me with tales of terrible film shoots and were less than discreet about the behaviour of other actors....but all in a very nice way.

It was a lovely day. A fond memory.

I've still got the video Jake gave me and I really must get it uploaded to YouTube or something.

Stan Lee: Marvel Comics co-creator dies aged 95


Quote
American writer and Marvel Comics co-creator Stan Lee has died at the age of 95.

Lee and Jack Kirby founded the company in 1961, beginning with The Fantastic Four and going on to create titles such as Spider-Man and The Incredible Hulk.

Lee's wife, Joan, died in 2017 - also aged 95 - but he is survived by his daughter, JC Lee.

Speaking to website TMZ, JC said her father was "the greatest, most decent man".

The legendary comic book author died at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Monday after a medical emergency, according to Variety magazine.

In recent years, Lee had periodically suffered from illnesses, including a bout of pneumonia, US media reported.
