Of course if Moore makes it through the year then I'll have to accept all of the praise!

Old age and sudden and dramatic deterioration in health seems to cover it. Patrick Moore has just published his autobiography and in it he says that he feels as though he hasn't got long to live and that his body is "shutting down". He now cannot walk without the aid of two sticks and has even written and recorded his own speech, to be played back at his funeral wake. He has set aside a lump sum in his will to cover the costs of the bash. He says his decline in health has been rapid and he does not expect to be here much longer. It sounds like heart failure.

Frank Carson - Couldn't go on Get Me Outta Here due to health probs - not sure what the probs were, can anyone enlighten me?
Michael Barrymore - This bloke has got to be on the edge - only plastic spoons at dinner these days I reckon.
Patrick Moore - If he pulls his trousers up any higher it could be strangulation by belt. Why do old men pull their trews up past their nipples?
Alex Ferguson - unless he packs in Man. Utd. He hasn't looked well for a few years now.

You never know though - the old duffer could go and do something daft, like stop breathing!

I've become somewhat obsessed by this. A friend has come up with a name for this trousers - nipsters as oppose to hipsters.

The omens aren't good, and Marlon might not be your biggest miss ...
Now if only they could find new presenters to take his place who don't seem to have had a charisma bypass. God, they're awful ... remind me of some of post grads at uni.
[The exception being tonight's Prof. Zarnecki, who was one of my lecturers at uni !]
Dodo deado, Dodi deado, Di deado, Dando deado ... Surely Dido's looking dodgy ?
Despite the high cost of living, it still seems popular.

Yes it is a rare event for him to miss it.
I saw him at the theatre last year and he announced that this year 2004 would be his farewell tour.
But as yet there are no dates confirmed.
I hope he carries on for a long time yet. You just dont see characters like him these days.
