To answer my own question about Hinch, I actually got off my backside and actually followed one of the links from the rubbish Wiki page. Here is some better info:

http://www.news.com....86335-2,00.html



"My condition at the moment is manageable long term as far as I know."

"There's a growth on my liver. It's a cancerous growth. It's the size of a 5c piece," the new teetotaller said.

"I don't know if it's benign or malignant. It's just sitting there, and as long as it sits there I'm all right.


HOWEVER:

For the rest of his life, Hinch faces a timetable of hospital visits and CAT scans every five or six weeks

AND:

"I think my immune system is s..t at the moment. Anything that's going around I can get it.

"I asked what I can do if my immune system is down and they said eat well, exercise, nothing much you can do."

***************

So presumably

1. His growth is benign and just sitting there at the moment;
2. His immune system is a little better

Otherwise, would you say that he would be dead by now??? :unsure:

Why don't you join for flip's sake!

What are you scared of?


Are you Iain? And did you move to Austrailia?
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

To answer your questions:

1. No. I have been called many things in my life, but "Ian" isn't one of them! ;)
2. I have always lived in Australia.


A few more leads:


Brian Harradine 1935. Politician; once held balance of power in the Senate. Suffered a series of minor strokes a few years ago.

Bill Collins 1934. "Mr Movies", film buff. Getting a bit old and doddery.

Judith Durham 1943, (born Judith Cock) member of sickly-sweet 1960s folk band, The Seekers (who outsold the Beatles at one stage). Suffered a very bad car accident some years ago, then her husband died of motor neurone disease and then she picked up a stalker who has an obsession with sending her doormats through the mail, for unknown reasons. :blink:

http://en.wikipedia....i/Judith_Durham

It was her former personal assistant who was stalking her, so perhaps butter-wouldn't-melt-in-her-mouth Judith was treating her like a doormat! :P

Here is Judith's equally sickly-sweet official page:

http://www.judithdurham.com/

I think I am going to be sick after reading that! :sicktherm:

Other Australians you could add to the list of potentials:

Alf Howard, sole remaining member of Mawson's Antarctic trip in 1920s. He's over 100.
Sir Marcus Loane, former Archbishop of Sydney, aged about 96
Greg Page, Wiggle with health issues
Doug Anthony, former Deputy PM
Lady Sonia McMahon, had a recent tumble
Brian Burke, former WA Premier (or am I just hopeful putting him on this list)
Kel Nagle, golfer in late 80s
Sara Douglass, author

How's Rowena Wallace these days? Every couple of years she seems to have a bout of bad health.

Another for you is Patsy King (Erica Davidson in Prisoner Cell Block H) - apparently born in 1929 so getting on a bit. Despite my sister having her on her DDP team I'm not sure she'll get a UK obit to be honest. We'll see in time I suppose.

And speaking of former Prisoner actresses, is Mary Ward still alive? She played Mum in PCBH and Dee Morrell in Sons And Daughters. She trained as an actress before WW2 so must be pushing 90 now.

Divinyls singer Christina Amphlett is worth watching out for too; has battled alcoholism and is suffering from MS.

Coincidentally I was thinking about Mary Ward myself the other day. There doesn't seem to be a date of death for her, but she doesn't seem to have worked for eight years either, so it could go either way.

Okay then, add...

Anthony Mundine, 1975. Boxer, ex-rugby league player and all-round asshat. (No known health issues except a glass jaw, which unfortunately, isn't likely to be terminal.)

Thanks for all of those suggestions, people!


Yes, I was thinking of Mundine but added Lionel Rose instead. Mundine is definitely an "asshat."


Didn't know Amphlett had MS... Result of "touching herself" too often? I thought that only caused blindness and hairy palms... :sicktherm:


I also had no idea that any of Mawson expedition team were still alive. That is quite amazing. Obviously, the good clean air and a bit of bracing cold down in the Antarctic is good for longevity!


Walking through shops just now saw surfer Mark Occhilupo on the cover of some magazine. Apparently he is recovering from serious drug addiction.


Philip Newell, former Anglican Bishop of Hobart, is another who is starting to get on a bit. His son, also an Anglican priest and prominent university professopr, recently committed suicide (he had suffered from chronic disablities all of his life and was wheelchair-bound.)


Sarah Douglass was only born in 1957, according to her wiki page... Any reason why she may drop?


Cheers.

Bloody huge list but I expect it will start thinning out quickly at the top end... :sicktherm:


Nearly all of them are really well-known celebs in Australia, so any deaths would receive a lot of media coverage here. UK obits would be the challenge.

That's all from me. Please keep the list up to date, as it shrinks down over time!


Cheers.

I heard something of ill health for Sara Douglass before Christmas but cannot remember what is wrong. Philip Newell is not so old. Didn't realise his son suicided, though I knew he died.

I haven't watched Neighbours since I was about 10, so don't know modern cast members. Vivean Gray (Mrs Mangel), Ian Smith (Harold Bishop), Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan are all on the list. Not sure if Imbruglia was a cast member for a while???


I'd never heard of Sir Charles Mackerras. Thanks for telling me about him.


By the way, since Australia's oldest man is top of the list, here is the oldest woman:

http://en.wikipedia...._Beatrice_Riley


The old girl was born in 1896... I always find it a little strange and eerie to think that there are people who were born during Queen Vic's reign still alive amongst us in the 21st Century!!! :sicktherm:

From above: "Bud Tingwell (92) - Brilliant Australian Actor, but getting on a bit though."

He's only 86. Spring chicken.



G'Day all.

Just replying to the accusation the Bud Tingwell is only 86. I Have a link here that claims his year of birth is 1917.
Why are you calling me "Spring Chicken"?

Also we MUST include Rose Porteous-Hancock (61) - Australia's answer to Anna Nicole-Smith but no-where near as attractive as Smith was. She NEEDS to be included on the list as she appears to be ill and the list would be incomplete without her anyway. :sicktherm:
BS' BC - 2009 = 4.
BS' BC - 2010 = 7.
BS' BC - 2011 = 8.
BS' BC - 2012 = 12.
BS' BC - 2013 = 12.
BS' BC - 2014 = 8

The Tasmanian mass murderer was Martin Bryant. Not worth mentioning - I was hesitant to put Ivan Milat on the list, as their type don't deserve the publicity. Bryant wasn't into bestiality, as far as I am aware.



No idea what your second sentence means. Please improve spelling, grammar and punctuation next time. However, if you think I am just being a "name dropper", no, that is not the case at all. The list is excessive, I will admit, but they are all famous Aussies. Part A is mainly old ones and in, Part B, well, wild guesses are what make Death List more fun.

The list will be more manageable once a few of the oldies drop off. I am leaving it in the hands of the regular posters here, not guests like you and I.

To Body Snatcher, thanks for past suggestions! "Rose Hancock = Anna Nicole Smith" made me laugh. It is probably very true.


Anyway, that is all from me, as I have said twice already. This time I really do mean it. I have a trip to go on over Easter and I will refrain from posting in the future. I am just going to sit back and see who dies...


Hope this list leaves you all with a really good start with regards to potential Aussie deaths.


Cheers.
