Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

Too Much

My neighbour is wonderful. We've lived next door to one another for well over 30 years. When her husband was alive, he was always doing work for me - building fences, pointing walls, plumbing in sinks - but he developed diabetes, which led to an infected sore, which led to an amputation from which he never fully recovered. This was a few years ago now, and finally she has decided to sell her house and move closer to her younger daughter. She doesn't have the best of health herself, and the house sale, which has been dragging on for months, had been very stressful for her. Finally she has a moving date - next Friday. But her elder daughter's husband was taken ill last week and admitted to hospital with septicaemia. As well as several operations, he was put into a drug-induced coma and put on life support in intensive care. He didn't make it. At age 53, with a six-year-old son, he died on Thursday night. I cannot imagine how they will all cope. It's just too cruel.

Who Knew?

I'm sure we all recognise Linus Roache, the last ADA in Law and Order before it was killed off. But I think my British readers might be surprised to learn who his dad is:
Yes, folks, it's William Roache, Coronation Street's Ken Barlow since the show first aired in 1960.

Linus appeared as the original Peter Barlow in the show back in 1975. Last year he reappeared as a completely different character after Peter's role had been re-established using a different actor. In December last year the character was killed off in a live episode involving a disaster striking the street.

Linus' mother is the actress Anna Cropper, who is one of those people of whom you say, oh yes, I recognise her. What's she been in?

So there you have it, interesting but useless fact of the day. And if some of you already knew this -I wish you'd told me before!

Alpha Dog. So glad to see the real alpha male nail this bastard.

This time it's Identity Crisis.

Still got the hair, but the beard's turned to my favourite - stubble!

Season 8 in the Proper Order 2

Number 2 = Folie a Deux. Where we witness the sudden transformation of Goren's hair and beard from this:

To this:

And I thought back again, but I don't appear to have the pictures to prove it.
