I'm sorry for your loss, Selkie, sending hugs your way!

And to you too, Tina! You're a tough one, you, you're not easily beaten! ;) I'm sure it'll be better soon!

Condolences to the Family Selkie.




I'm sad today coz I just found out that William Windom has died, aged 88. He played Doctor Hazlitt in Murder She Wrote.

Apparently he played mad Commodore Decker on the classic “The Doomsday Machine” episode of the original Star Trek TV series. In recent years, he reprised that role for the online Star Trek New Voyages: Phase II series.

BBC:

A body has been found by emergency services searching for a four-year-old boy who went missing after falling into the sea in Somerset.

Dylan Cecil fell from the jetty at Burnham-on-Sea on Sunday evening, prompting a large search operation.

Avon and Somerset Police said the body was discovered near the town's yacht club at about 12:30 BST.

Dylan's parents, from Northamptonshire, have been told. Formal identification has yet to be carried out.

Dylan's family, from Kettering, had been staying in Burnham with his grandparents.

He had wanted to get a closer look at the sea when he slipped off the side of the jetty and disappeared beneath the water.

His parents desperately tried to rescue him, but were unable to reach their son and had to be pulled from the water by passers-by.

Earlier this week, his mother Rachel McCollum said: "I jumped in straight after him, what more could I do? I knew as soon as I jumped in I wasn't getting him back.

"He was literally not even a metre away from me and he was jumping and slipped basically and I watched him fall in.

Rachel McCollum, mother of Rachel McCollum jumped in after him

"It was a whirlpool. It dragged me, I could feel myself being pulled under."

Speaking of her son, she added that he was "the most gorgeous boy, perfect in every single way".

A search involving the coastguard, police and helicopters was mounted to rescue Dylan but the operation was called off on Monday.

However, volunteers continued to look for him.

A specialist rescue team using sonar equipment and an underwater robot failed to find his body on Wednesday.

The water off Burnham-on-Sea has one of the highest tidal rise and fall ranges in the world, and the shoreline is notorious for its mudflats.

Sedgemoor District Council said it was satisfied all its procedures were followed correctly and that there were many warning signs.

The council said it was carrying out an internal review "to establish all relevant information".

Wow, he seemed pretty old when he was in that episode. For me, his was the best guest star appearance by anyone on the old show. One of his classic bits of Acting is when he's getting relieved of command by Spock for being too Ahab-esque. Something like:

Spock: I am relieving you of command.
Decker: I don't recognize your authority.
Spock: You can bring it up with Starfleet later.
Decker: You're bluffing.
Spock: Vulcans never bluff.
Decker: No, I don't suppose they do.

Well, not actually today, but I'm still sad about it...
Artúr, one of my granny's dogs died yesterday :cry: We don't really know what happened. According to my granny, he was his normal self that morning, eating and everything, and then the afternoon she went outside and he wasn't moving and the other dogs were all there with him and looking and stuff... I mean, it wasn't even that he was old, he was...well, something like 3 or 4 years old!
He just kind of joined the family. He was a stray dog and he was hanging around a lot at our house - at that time, there were a lot of workers there doing something on the house, can't remember what (it's a Petrocelli kind of house, never really ready...) and they gave him food I guess, so he just kept on being there. He was just a puppy back then, shy and frightened of everything, but soo cute and good-hearted! So we decided to keep him and brought him over to my granny and it wasn't easy for him to fit in, since he was "foreign" and the other three dogs are all black and he was kind of a reddish-brown, but then it all went quite well, and he turned out to be the most vivid, enthousiastic, happy dog there ever was! I know you're not supposed to have favorites when it comes to pets, but he was kind of mine... Can't believe he's gone :cry:
My granny buried him in the garden, she said the other dogs were there behind her, like some kind of funeral crowd (also because they're all black)...
All the time I have to think of the movie All dogs go to Heaven, which was a movie we quite often watched with my dad when I was little, and I didn't like it because it was so sad, but it was also a very beautiful movie, and although I'm not religious and don't really believe there's things like Heaven and Hell (although I do believe that there's some place everyone goes after they die), I do hope that Artúr is now in some happy place playing with other dogs or something...

There definitely is such a place as Doggie Heaven - after all Dog is God spelt backwards so there must be! :angelic-innocent:

Sorry to hear about that, mC. Dogs can be such good friends.
