The Seekers may not be your thing but they were the first Australian group to have success internationally.

The actually knocked the Beatles and the Stones off the top of the charts in both the UK and USA with “ Georgie Girl “.

I saw them live once on their 50th anniversary tour , sounded just like the did in their 20’s.

He was 73.

“Rudi suffered fatal injuries after an accident near Stilbaai between Cape Town and Gqeberha,” said the family spokesperson, who requested anonymity.

Britain’s longest-serving monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, has died, Buckingham Palace has announced.

Her death was announced at 6.30pm London time (3.30am AEST), prompting a wave of public mourning and triggering the immediate ascension of Prince Charles as King.

God bless her and her service
 
In for the long haul.

Not a famous person but my Aunty Noelie gets laid to rest this afternoon. She was 90, a cracker of a person, generous, gregarious, caring beyond most others.
I feel very badly for my cousins in this time of covid. The funeral has taken two weeks to be scheduled, such is the delay. Worse though, she was already dying when her aged care place was invaded by covid. She tested positive a couple of days before she died and my poor cousins had to maintain their thirteen hour daily vigil, holding her hand, in full PPE.
They got the call to come quickly early in the morning but had to take a covid test before they could see her and she died while they were being tested.
Then the funeral people said that because she had covid, they wouldn't dress her for the coffin or apply makeup. So no open casket for immediate family. This despite the fact that her pacemaker had to be removed for cremation.
It'll be a huge funeral, so much was she loved by so many.
RIP Aunty Noelie

You and your family have my condolences. Loss is difficult. My mother in law is 94 and I expect when her time comes it will rock the foundations of our large family.
