Man Newsletter, Friday 16 March 2018
back (and fresh) in stock, a new special offer, our Top Five
bestsellers... and your free bonus giveaway!
I can't believe it's
Easter in a fortnight's time. OK, I know it's early this year, but
nevertheless where has the time gone? (Maybe it's an age thing?)
Anyway, the fact that it is Easter in two weeks means that the next
edition of this newsletter will be postponed for a week, so it won't be
published until Friday
6 April. I do
hope you won't suffer from newsletter withdrawal symptoms...
Also between now and
then, we spring forward into British / European Summer Time in the early
Sunday 25 March
- so don't forget to put your clocks on by one hour, last thing on the
Saturday night or first thing on that Sunday morning...
Now, on a more sombre note,
here's our usual
fortnightly look at those
celebrities who've passed away since the last edition
of this newsletter. Sadly, we've
had to say goodbye to British record-breaker Sir Roger Bannister (88),
the first man to run the mile in under 4 minutes, back in 1954,
visionary British physicist Professor
Stephen Hawking (76), probably the world's best-known
actor David Ogden Stiers (75), best-known for his
portrayal of the snobbish and pompous Major Charles Emerson Winchester III in
the TV-series "M*A*S*H",
British inventor Trevor Baylis
(80), whose BayGen clockwork radio was a huge success, especially in
countries, British broadcaster and presenter Jim
Bowen (80), of "Bullseye"
fame, and - last but by no means least - British comedy
legend Sir Ken Dodd (90)...
RIP, one and all...
OK, to cheer
us up after all that bad news, what could be better than a little bit of
he is, doing one of my favourite routines, with Dicky Mint... ENJOY!
Right, let's get back to
business. Here are the brief edited highlights of the more
noteworthy dates from around the world during the next three weeks... with (as always) my apologies for any errors or omissions...
