The man born McKinley Morganfield, in Rolling Fork, Mississippi ...

Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015 Review:
For those people of my generation who grew up in the 1970s, 2015 has been a sad year. So many ‘weel-kent’ faces from that era have passed away this year. The likes of Patrick Macnee – John Steed of The Avengers – Irish singer Val Doonican ...

Resolved Question: Name famous people most
Helmut Schmidt just died. He was 96. I thought he was dead already. Figured he would have died years ago.
Henry Kissinger is still alive (he's 92). Kirk Douglas is still alive, he's 98.
Name other famous people that are still alive that you think most people would think are dead. I found a site on my own...but I like everyone's answers so far....

Resolved Question: Nervous about work
Hi, now this really will sound absurd but I am a big worrier (even about tiny things!)..
Basically my workplace is undergoing a rennovation, knocking down the old store and building a larger one behind it. It is closed to the public but workers still have to make up hours - for me it's this week starting tomorrow. I haven't been in since January so have no idea what stage the store is at; my worry is where to go tomorrow morning. There is a front entrance to the car park but I don't even know if this is open? I get a lift from my dad, and I can't ring to ask anyone as I'm one of the earliest in.
Any advice to help settle my stupid worry would be great!
