As soon as you said Wally Cleaver his image popped into my mind. It's funny to me how many actors (many of whom I liked watching) that I only know by the names of their characters. And there are only a few rock bands that I know all the member's names. I'm good with insect scientific names, but have to look up the English names for all but common and local species.
Thanks for posting all these. It's nice to mark the passing of people who touched our culture, especially through art and science.

quoteIn May 2017, it was announced that Newton-John's breast cancer had returned and metastasized to her lower back. Her back pains had initially been misdiagnosed as sciatica.
Newton-John subsequently revealed this was actually her third bout with breast cancer, as she had privately battled a recurrence of the disease in 2013 in addition to her initial 1992 fight. With the 2017 recurrence the cancer had spread to her bones and progressed to stage IV.
Newton-John experienced a great deal of pain from the metastatic bone lesions and had openly spoken of using cannabis oil to ease her pain. She was an advocate for the use of medical cannabis. Her daughter Chloe owns a cannabis farm in Oregon.
On 8 August 2022, Newton-John died at her home in California, aged 73.
OMG She died? She seemed eternally young. I remember her in that tight black suit in Grease. Man, I'm getting old!

“The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of a doubt, what is laid before him.” — Leo Tolstoy, The Kingdom of God is Within You (1894).
