    There's never a good time to lose someone, but I find that right now it's especially difficult in so many ways. You have my most sincere condolences, Walther.

    Today it's twenty years since the horrible terror attacks in the US. The fates of the innocent people murdered that day, the survivors, their lives ones and the brave first responders are still on our minds today. The terrorist attacks that day changed our world, from airport check-ins to the Iraq war. The number of people around the world who has lost their lives as a direct result of the war om terror is calculated to be somewhere from about 900 000 to almost a million. Without drawing a conclusion here on the war on terror we can say most of those people weren't terrorists, only indirect victims of the terrible events that day. Rest in peace.

    It was 20 years ago yet I remember every single moment of that day vividly, from a friend phoning me to say that an aircraft had just crashed in New York, to the silence that afternoon when practically no one was left downtown and the skies were clear. It's incredible to me to realise that no one under 25 years of age was even alive or remembers that day.

    I remember that day vividly as well. I was getting dressed for work and turned on the radio to see what was going on in the world, completely oblivious that anything was going on. At the time, only the first plane had hit and the discussion was more focused on whether it was an accident or an attack. Then, the second plane hit and that question got answered immediately. I was pretty much numb for the rest of the day.

    RIP Sir Clive Sinclair, computer pioneer. I doubt that there are many in my age bracket, at least in the UK, who haven't possessed at least one of his gadgets.

    RIP to Norm MacDonald. 61 from cancer.

    Very, very funny man. Bizarre sense of humor but really really funny if you were dialed in on his wavelength.

    Jane Powell, star of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, has died aged 92.

    As she was so good in that I'm surprised she wasn't in more films, but she was a trouper it seems and carried on performing into her 80s.
