I don't have any answers, but not having any answers does not do well by anybody :(.
I have some of the answers, but they are not good ones, no matter how you look at them. ( No I will not post them. ) :(

Wow, he played Mr. House in Fallout: NV--never knew that! And his Odo was fantastic, that goes without saying. RIP.

I remember him from those botany programmes in the 70s/80s, more childhood gone.

The guy was an absolute legend for children born in a certain era. His enthusiasm and ability to not just convey it, but impart it to the listener - grabbing their interest and holding them on the subject - was brilliant. How many other kids would watch programs with interest about plants and creepy crawlies? Just a shame he wasn't on our screens for the past 20 odd years :(

I'm sure I remember the *real* David Bellamy actually coming on when Lenny Henry was doing that impression, similarly to how they did with Trevor McDonald in that video.

Unusual one for this thread but Qasem Soleimani - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-50979463

I suspect that this will have ramifications.

Neil Peart aged 67, Drummer and lyricist for Rush for 45 years has passed away after a three and a half year fight with brain Cancer. Kind of explains why the quit touring.

R.I.P. Neil
I'm not saying he is a Russian asset, I'm saying he sat on his asset when he was supposed to be confronting Putin.
He will not be re-elected. Without a wall, he will only be remembered as a small cartoon figure who briefly inflamed and amused the rabble.
