As the original thread got lost in the cyberattack, I hope it's OK to start a new one: Tom Wolfe. The Electric Koolaid Acid Test was a fascinating look at the end of the sixties from one who was there, and I think Bonfire of the Vanities and A Man in Full deserve to be regarded as two of the great American novels of the turn of the millennium - a US Dickens, no less.

Did not realise that. Amazed no-one has already mentioned this World Cup winning English hero's demise before now....

Sadly, Martin Peters,Nobby Stiles and Jimmy Greaves are 3 members of that squad who are all suffering with this too....

Apollo 12 Astronaut Alan Bean who was the 4th man to walk on the moon, commanded the second SkyLab mission and became a renowned artist, has died at 86.
[www.space.com]

I had the pleasure of meeting Alan Bean at an inspiring lecture he gave in the UK in 2013 where he talked about his missions and illustrated his account with his paintings.

From the distance of half a century the Apollo program can seem like a remote historical event. Hearing the human stories of this great series of achievements firsthand from people who were part of the team that made it happen brings it closer and links us to it.

RIP Alan Bean.

Sad to hear and what a lot he achieved in his lifetime.

I was only 6 in 1969 and my primary school teacher had two kittens that she wanted to find a home for. They were brothers and were named Apollo and Splashdown after the events of the space journey. My Mum took on Splashdown and what a lovely cat he was. I can still see him sprawled out in the sunshine!

Oh, very sorry to hear that - only knew him as a customer but he made Chener everything a proper bookshop should be, instead of a coffee and souvenir stand with a few books attached. RIP.

Oh how sad to hear this news, especially in the 40th year of business and he was due to retire this year. We have lost part of the local community and a poster here on EDF.

I hope details of the funeral will be made available so those who which to pay their respects maybe able to.

Can't believe I've just read that John Kennedy from Chener books has died. Really devastated, he was a great guy. Thoroughly enjoyed talking to him when I popped in. Will be very sadly missed.

I was away for a while I am so sad to hear about John at Chener Books. He was SO knowledgeable and posted a lot on here about local history. He was lovely and funny and friendly and sometimes even gave me free old maps! That's so sad. I would have loved to have attended his funeral if I had been here.

His funeral was private, I believe. I understand that the family didn't want John's sad death generally known until after the funeral had taken place.

There was talk of a memorial service of some kind, but I don't know whether that is still planned.
