Thanks KC 👍😊

In England Diana Rigg is best remembered for the 60s tv series The Avengers and for being the only Bond girl to become a Bond wife..but she had a long and varied career ..
She won a Tony award for her Medea on Broadway among many other awards including an Emmy for Rebecca.
I saw her in a production of Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf here in London .. magnificent actress..

Oh, I'd seen some mention that she'd been in a Bond movie but didn't know it was that one!

 " Sean Connery, Who Embodied James Bond and More, Dies at 90 " !!   :'(

 https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/31/movies/sean-connery-dead.html

 To legions of fans who have watched a parade of actors play Agent 007, none played the part as magnetically or as indelibly as Mr. Connery.

 

 Goodbye, MR.Bond!! Rest in peace ...  :'(

Thanks for posting, Higashimori! It's nice to hear from you.

R.I.P., Sean Connery. Matt has started a dedicated "Sean Connery Appreciation Thread" for anyone who'd like to talk about their favorite Connery film appearances. You'll find it here:

Although I watched it intermittently over many years, I liked "Jeopardy" and Alex Trebek. It's the end of an era. The best game show hosts are now both gone, Regis Philbin and Alex Trebek. RIP

This one is especially for Gant:

Viola Smith, 'Fastest Girl Drummer in the World,' Dies at 107

Quote
Viola Smith, who played a giant 12-piece drum kit and was billed as the ?fastest girl drummer in the world? ? and who wrote a widely read essay during World War II advocating for big bands to hire female musicians in place of the male ones who had been drafted ? died on Oct. 21 at her home in Costa Mesa, Calif. She was 107. ...

Ms. Smith, who hailed from a little town in Wisconsin, grew up playing in a jazz band with her seven sisters. Her entrepreneurial father had conceived of the group, the Schmitz Sisters Orchestra, and they performed at state fairs and toured the vaudeville circuit. After most of her sisters left the band, Ms. Smith started another all-female outfit, the Coquettes, which rose to modest national fame in the late 1930s.

Ms. Smith became the first female star of jazz drumming. She performed at President Harry S. Truman?s inauguration gala, and she worked with Ella Fitzgerald and Chick Webb. Her showcase tune was a jazzy arabesque called ?Snake Charmer,? in which she exhibited her virtuosity in a flashy solo.


Viola Smith in 1948. When people called her the ?female Gene Krupa,? she corrected them: Krupa, she said, was the male Viola Smith.Credit...Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

R.I.P., Viola! But with a little drumming now and then, to break up all those harp glissandos! ;)

Argentine football player Diego Armando Maradona just passed away. The ones that enjoy football certainly know him. My father was an admirer, great player. He had a huge rivalry with Pele, an also famous brasilian player. Only 60 years old. Sad what unhealthy lifestyle can do.
Rip, Maradona.

Here is a link to an obituary for Maradona:

https://www.espn.com/soccer/argentina-arg/story/4244900/argentina-legend-maradona-dies-at-60

Apparently, Argentina will observe three days of national mourning for the football great! We didn't do that in the US even for Kobe Bryant (who was an admirer, according to the ESPN obit).
